Serving all of your Real Estate needs in Howard County & Catonsville, MD. Real Estate is LOCAL! But what does that really mean? Although Maryland may be a small State in size, there are many significant differences from one County to the next and from one Town to another. When you are selecting a Maryland Realtor to either help you sell your current home or help you find your new home you want an expert in that LOCAL area that you have a need. I may be licensed to practice Real Estate throughout the entire State of Maryland, but my abilities and knowledge is going to be extremely diluted if I try to cover all of the area's efficiently. Instead I chose to focus solely on the Real Estate market in Howard County and Catonsville. I make it my business to be the Howard County Real Estate Expert. I continually educate myself about the housing trends, sales and statistics. I stay fully informed on the local job growth, construction and commercial changes that will ultimately effect the Real Estate Market and your home value. I understand that the schools are a primary reason why families want to reside in Howard County & Catonsville and I am well versed on all of the local area school districts. Many Realtors are unaware that a brand new Elementary School is opening in Howard County in 2013 that is going to affect the current school attendance areas! I constantly Blog about the local events, businesses and news that impacts the area. Visit Ellie's Howard County Real Estate Blog to stay in touch too I AM YOUR LOCAL HOWARD COUNTY & CATONSVILLE REALTOR.
I believe that buying and selling homes is serious business, which means:
You shouldn't be pressured into making decisions before you're ready. You should be the one making the decisions. My job is to make sure you have the necessary information to make good decisions. Your needs are put ahead of everyone else's, including mine. And last but not least, communication is key. We will be in touch often -- via email, telephone, and in person.
As a Team we also offer you "double coverage". I pride myself in NOT answering my cell phone when I am with a client. When I am on an appointment with you, you get 100% of my attention. Your time is valuable.
However if you are the one that needs to talk to me right away, then there is always another Team Member who can take your call and troubleshoot your immediate needs. The minute I become available I will return your call. There is a great strength in numbers. When you hire me, you get the more than one agent.

|Ellie McIntire did a great job of finding the right area for me to look for a home. Found my house quickly and the process was only a little painful (have to love that paperwork!) I cannot comment on the negotiation skills, however. The home was priced fairly, so there wasn't much negotiating (it wasn't needed). I wish they had an N/A option for that one. :) You will find a house you love if you go with Ellie and her team.
|Ellie McIntire has been there for every resident in our community who has called on her for a potential listing. She's honest, attentive and deserves her excellent reputation. So many realtors don't even bother to show in person but send a member of their team instead. Ellie McIntire is THERE!
|Ben and Anne
|Ellie McIntire and her team are so wonderful to work with! They are very knowledgable and flexible. We loved Ellie's love for her job, and relaxed attitude. We never felt pressured and appreciated her honesty. I always recommend her to my friends!
|My wife and I had a very good experience buying our first home in Ellicott City last October with the help of Ellie McIntire. We interviewed Ellie to be our buyer's agent because of her positive online reviews and we are happy that we worked with her. Ellie McIntire was very knowledgeable about the Howard County market (we were looking at Columbia and Ellicott City). She was easy to talk to but also very honest and forthcoming in her opinions about different homes, which was very helpful for us as first time buyers. When we found the home we ended up buying, Ellie helped us place a winning offer that was $10000 lower than what we were willing to pay. She also helped us find a home inspector and a loan officer (but did not push us to choose either one). Ellie responded quickly to our calls and emails throughout the whole process. If we decide to move or sell our home in the future, we would definitely work with her again.
|Ellie Mcintire is the best if you you want to buy/sell a property in Catonsville/Elllicott city area. Her knowledge about the area is immense and she specifically caters to your needs. She will pretty much find what you need for how you need.
|Very attentive and upbeat. Contacted us frequently with new listings and plans for the next weekend's viewings. Because of one of Ellie's connections we were able to view and eventually buy a great house before it went on the market. Highly recommended!
|My husband and I actually found Ellie through reviews on Zillow. We contacted her while we were still living out of state in Arizona, prior to our move here to Howard County. When I called her the first time, she picked up right away, and spent a good amount of time that initial phone call, just learning about our needs and when we'd be arriving in the area. When we finally arrived in Maryland and we met with her for the first time, she was so nice and answered any and all questions we had. Being that we were first-time homebuyers, we had a lot! She was always great answering e-mails, text messages, phone calls, etc., It took us a little while to find our home, but Ellie was patient (with us and the market), and never stopped looking until we found the perfect home... She is awesome!
|Chuck and Selli
|My wife and I had an awesome experience with Ellie and team. We were looking for our first home in the Baltimore area, with very little local knowledge. Ellie took time to understand our desires, and highlighted several neighborhoods accordingly. She really knows a lot about the area - good neighborhoods, good schools, things to do, etc. When it came time to start visiting properties, Ellie was eager to find good matches based on our criteria. She setup auto-searches, as it seems most realtors do — but she really went above and beyond by personally scanning homes for us in the background. Ellie genuinely enjoys what she does, she’s good at it, and we always felt that she had our interests in mind. During negotiations and procedural items, Ellie stepped us through, happy to answer any questions (being our first time, there were lots!). Ellie successfully negotiated a great deal for us, and we couldn’t be happier. Ellie is the total realtor package: knowledgeable, proactive, responsive, passionate, a tough negotiator. Throughout the whole process, we felt that we had a close friend helping us find a home.
|Ellie McIntire is a true and dedicated Agent. She represented the family who purchased my previous home. I have recommended her in the past and will always continue to do so. She has become family.

|Ellie McIntire helped us buy our home in Ellicott City, MD. We needed to find an agent that could help us as we moved from out of state. I was very impressed at how knowlegeable she was with the area. She helped us find the right home in the right neighborhood because she listened to our needs. She quickly found out how much good schools and nice neighbors ment to us. She was eager to help us find the perfect house. We are very lucky we found Ellie because she worked hard for us and are very happy in our home, Thanks Ellie.
|I am grateful to Ellie Mcintire for finding me a house and helping me every step of the way. I was not able to find a house with another agent for more than a year. With the other agent many houses were sold before I even had a chance to look at them or sold the day after I toured them. I switched to Ellie and she was able to find me a house within 6 weeks. The house I purchased had not been placed on the market yet and without her assistance I would not have found it. She helped me negotiate an offer, and made all the arrangements at the speed of light. She and her team made everything easy for me since I had no idea what I was doing. This was my first home purchase. Everything worked out smoothly.
|Peter and Toni
|My fiance and I were first time home-buyers, and I must say that Ellie and her Team were perfect for us! I was looking for someone with good knowledge of the Catonsville area, as well as a high level of responsiveness. Ellie & her team met all of my expectations. She was always flexible when we were setting up appointments to view the homes. Most importantly, she truly listened to what we wanted in our home (location, school district, back yard, etc), and helped us find the perfect home! She was always quick to point out the good and bad in each house, and was very honest, which is incredibly important since I was completely new at this process. I felt extremely comfortable with her and her team, and I will always be appreciative or her assistance!
|Dave and Cathy
|We met Ellie at and open house and were impressed with her knowledge and enthusiasm about the local area. The house she was showing was too small for us, but we contacted her about looking at other properties. She was very helpful and showed us a number of properties without being too pushy. We liked her openness when discussing pros/cons of properties and she and her team were very helpful through the negotiation/purchasing process. I'd highly recommend her and her team when buying a property in the Catonsville/Ellicot City area.
|Randy and Sarah
|Our experience with Ellie McIntire and her team was exceptional! I found Ellie on the internet. I read many of the reviews about her and thought let me see if these are really true. From the moment she answered the phone I knew she was the right Realtor for us. So my husband and I discussed our wants/likes and most importantly our needed school boundary. We began our search around January and we closed on our new house the beginning of April. Even though the purchase happened quickly it wasnt entirely a stress free experience to say the least. However, Ellie and her team were by our side to offer guidance and assistance every step of the way. One example of Ellie's outstanding customer service was at closing. The owner was not present but did sign all the necesssary documents and sent them via fedex. But, the notory did not sign the documents after he/she applied his/her stamp. Therefore, the paperwork was considered incomplete. However, Ellie immediately stepped in and found a notory in the area the owner now lived (which was out of state and more than 3 hours away). Thank you to Ellie and her team my family and I are enjoying our wonderful new community.
|Ellie is the best of all agents in this area. She is extremely knowledgeable and helped us find the best home for us. She helped point out things that were not properly done in home or things that we done carelessly. I would never trust anyone else in helping us purchase a home. Not only was she knowledgable, she responds very quickly, and stands behind her word and the people around her. She is the best!
|We were referred to Ellie by very good friends who had worked with her to buy their new home. They said she was personable, knowledgeable and a very strong negotiator and worked very hard to get them the best deal possible. We now also agree. The process was painless and enjoyable. Ellie was entertaining to view homes with and was very patient with our wants and desires. We also want to add that she was efficient and always communicated effectively despite us being very needy buyers. It was a pleasure to work with her and we are very comfortable referring her to other friends that we have.
|Ellie made sure our house hunting experience was pleasurable, stress free, and streamlined. She had extensive local knowledge about the Columbia area, made sure she focused on what mattered to us (schools and accessibility) even while doing the initial online search, and streamlined the approach so that we would not have to go to a lot of houses to select the one we liked. She was also very forthcoming about what she liked/disliked about the houses, pointed out to us some aspects that we would have totally overlooked while thinking about a house (e.g. second floor laundry room - a godsend, a trash compactor - very useful, etc.), and also recommended some great support staff required for house purchasing (inspector, title agent, etc.) whose service was impeccable. Thank you, Ellie! And we love our house.
|Clive and Eva
|Ellie was extremely helpful and understanding during a time when I really didn't WANT to sell my house. She kept me up-to-date on homes for sale in the area and gently pushed me to get it on the market at the best time. I felt I could trust her suggestions and decisions during the process. She carefully explained and re-explained things as necessary and I felt I completely understood all steps and phases of the sale.
|I would like to say that Ellie and her team were the key to my success in selling my townhouse in the heart of Ellicott City. I had been under water for a few years and reached out to Ellie based on her reviews in assisting customers with short sales. Once she visited my property, she insisted we list above the price I had purchased it for several years prior. We literally had a cash offer less than a week after putting it on the market. Ellie had some difficult negoitiations after that, as the buyer was an experienced real estate purchaser and a lawyer as well. Ellie was the reason it all came together successfully. I was able to get a price just below what I paid several years ago. In this market, that was a tremendous feat. As we know, timing is everything, but you need a formidable agent on your side to make terrific results happen. Ellie McIntire is that agent. I recommend her wholeheartedly.
|We picked Ellie because she had great reviews on Zillow and it was the best decision we have ever made! We were first time home buyers and had no clue on where to start or what to look for. Ellie took the time to help us out by providing us information, setting up automated emails with new listings, and providing personal feedback on areas. It didn't take long before we saw the house that we wanted, and it was actually the first home we looked at! The next day Ellie and her co-worker John gathered all of the documents and I signed them electronically! The following day the offer was given to the seller and we eventually settled. Throughout the whole process Ellie and John were very helpful giving suggestions, thoughts, and opinions. Since everything was done electronically it was easy to move through all the steps. When it came time to sign the contract, Ellie was able to view my laptop remotely and walk be through each step that I was signing. We highly recommend Ellie and John and would use them again when we sell/buy our next home down the road.
|Jeb and Sara
|Ellie is a fantastic realtor. She was extremely helpful from the first time I spoke to her on the phone. She knows her business and her guidance in getting my house ready for market was indispensable. When I did have the house ready she was on the ball and wasted no time in promoting and presenting the home in the best and most innovative ways possible. If I recall, the house hit the market on Wednesday and I had a solid full price offer resulting in a contract and sale by Saturday noon. She is on top of all the latest social media technologies and uses them to great effect to present her clients’ homes to the full audience of prospective buyers. She also makes great use of these technologies to streamline the documentation, negotiation and sale process. All the documentation and forms were done online from the comfort of my office or home on my schedule. I never once had to go out of my way to make time to drive to her office or meet somewhere to fill out or sign forms; in fact I have never even been to her office. Even settlement was painless though I did have to schedule a visit to the title company. All in all, I couldn’t be happier with Ellie’s representation. As a realtor Ellie is the consummate professional and as she told me herself, she loves what she does and this is what she does fulltime. From my experience I can say she is one of the best if not the best real estate agent in the Howard County.
|We had a wonderful experience selling our home with Ellie McIntire. We started as a "For Sale By Owner", but enlisted Ellie's services after about a month. We'd recommend to anyone in that situation to let Ellie take over (we were so happy that we did!) She listed our home on a Wednesday, and we had two offers by Saturday. She was able to guide us during every step of the process, and made recommendations during the negotiation that saved us hundreds of dollars. Ellie knows her stuff!
|James And Karat
|My fiance and I worked with Ellie to find a home in the Howard County or Catonsville area. We were first time home buyers and Ellie walked us through from beginning to end. We started looking 6 months before we planned to move and she showed us dozens of homes over several months to help us find what we wanted. She was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and the features of the homes that we saw. When it came to making an offer on our home she was able to move extremely quickly in order to beat a slower competing offer. She and her team completed all the paperwork and made the home buying process easy. We got a great deal on a house we love and we have Ellie to thank!
|Ellie was a fantastic realtor -- knew the area well, understood quickly what we were looking for, and was very helpful in the confusing and overwhelming negotiation/settlement process. We found a home we absolutely love and have her to thank.
|Stacie and Paul
|Ellie was wonderful. We were moving to the area and had to find a house and close the deal in 3 days. We did it because of her. She negotiated the best deal ever for us, lined up all the mortgage process, we got a great rate and finished it all up in 3 days. Can't recommend her enough. We've bought and sold house through our moved a few times, and Ellie has been the best real estate agent ever.
|Blake and Caren
|We attended a "How to buy a short sale" class that Ellie McIntire was teaching. She was unbelievably knowledgeable about the process and realistic expectations of a buyer. We decided that we wanted her to help us buy a short sale in the Ellicott City area. She had a wealth of information about the schools and we liked her instantly. We looked at about 6 short sale listings. Prior to seeing any of the homes Ellie spent a lot of time on the phone qualifying the listing agent and the seller to make sure they knew what they were doing and that the seller was motivated. Once we found our dream home Ellie negotiated our offer and helped the process along. We settled in less than a month. Ellie's team were incredible. Always attentive, responsive and available. We recommend Ellie's services to all of our friends.
