Ceci Ellis

Ceci has worked with a wide variety of real estate transactions in her 30+ years as a real estate professional. She has sold everything from vacant land to high-end residential as well as leased both residential and commercial spaces. Her clients have ranged from investors to first time home buyers of all ages. However, her passion is working with buyers and sellers of residential properties on the mid-peninsula where she has lived most of her life.

She loves matching people with properties and ensuring that the home buying/selling experience is a positive and lucrative one for her clients, using her extensive background in negotiation, marketing, sales and, most importantly, customer service. In addition to real estate sales and leasing, Ceci has also taught real estate classes and mentored new agents.

A native Texan, Ceci moved to San Mateo with her family as a child. She has lived and attended schools in San Mateo, Belmont, Redwood City and San Jose. She holds Bachelor’s degrees in English, Psychology and Journalism and began her career in advertising as a copywriter for a small agency and later writing investor reports for a large real estate investment company. When not working with her real estate clients, she enjoys spending time with her family which includes her quarter horse mare, Cassie. Her equestrian activities include participation in many horse-related organizations including the San Mateo County Horseman’s Association and Woodside Horse Owner’s Association. She is a sponsor and volunteer for the annual Woodside Day of The Horse which is usually held on the first or second Saturday in October.
