After relocating to Atlanta twenty-one years ago, Ellyn fell in love with the city’s culture and endless opportunities. This love for her new home led her to her passion for helping buyers, and those relocating, find just the right spot in our ever-growing city. Praised by clients for her communication, Ellyn is dedicated and not afraid to work hard on her client’s behalf.
Ellyn has a son, Will, who is a junior at University of North Georgia and a daughter, Emma, who is a freshman there as well. Will hopes to become a real estate attorney, and after getting her business degree at UNG, Emma desires to get her real estate license. You could say that real estate runs in our blood!
Prior to joining The Regan Maki Team, Ellyn was a Gwinnett County high-school teacher, where she became deeply connected to her community and neighbors. A lifelong love of horses led to a vast knowledge of equestrian properties as well as a sizable network of fellow riders in the North-Atlanta area. Ellyn owns a small farm that is currently the home of the Mill Creek equestrian team, and she also sponsors them! Ellyn likes to joke that she’s seen every barn in Gwinnett County.
Ellyn's top priority is to provide an exceptional level of services to all clients and exceed their expectations.
Ellyn was awesome and she made our, at times, frustrating house search, fun. She was very patient with us considering it took us a year to find our perfect home. Our “must haves” in a house and the location were very particular and our list of “wants” was long which made it very difficult to find something that was a good fit. Many times we were ready to give up and just pick something that we “could make work”, and Ellyn would remind us not to settle. She was up front about issues she would see about a house and never pushed us to consider one just because we were still hanging around! And thank God we didn’t because we finally found the house tha...— Buyer
Regan Maki functions as an extensive, cohesive team to help with all phases of the selling and buying process from staging, quality photos, to reminding us of critical contract details and dates. Melissa, Ellyn, and the entire Maki Team were awesome to work with very responsive and attentive to details. Ours was a challenging move as we needed to sell and buy when there was very limited inventory, which required a lot of coordination to avoid temporarily renting or storing our belongings. Thanks to the entire Maki Team for helping us move forward with our lives and even checking with us after the move. It seemed they were interested in our wellbeing...— Patrick J.
Ellyn played such a critical role in helping me find my new house. She went way above and beyond on every level. She was always responsive, professional and very in tune with my needs. She found a property that exceeded my expectations on every level and there's no way I could've gotten through the entire process without her. She is a delightful person to work with and I will absolutely use her services again should I ever decide to buy another house. Furthermore, I would have no apprehension whatsoever in recommending her to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. You won't find anyone better!— Ben M.
I truly enjoyed working with Ellyn Stephenson as I searched for a new home. She is professional, knowledgeable about the area and very responsive to any questions I had. The thing that set her apart from other agents was her genuine concern for what was in my best interest. I never felt pressured to make a decision when I wasn't certain. She really understood my needs and worked diligently to help me find it. Ellyn is very kind and patient. She made the entire process fun! Her calming presence was a blessing in this journey. I appreciate and highly recommend her!— Renne P.
Ellyn was our angel! We are making a cross country move and she busted her butt to help us find everything on our checklist and in our budget. We only had one weekend to find a home and she gave us that whole weekend to check things out and help us find our dream home. I’m writing this up as my husband and I are packing up and getting ready for our big trek. Thank you Ellyn for going above and beyond in every aspect of our home buying process!— Marla P.
Ellyn was awesome! She was able to assist all my questions and gained a friendship since moving to Georgia! My husband and I moved to Georgia not knowing the land or anybody. Having Ellyn by our side was the best. We looked at well over 30 homes until we found the one we were ready to close on. Ellyn was by our side since day one of looking at homes and I wouldn’t have it any other way!— Rebecca E.
It was great working with Ellyn! My husband was here in GA and I was in MN, so it was tricky to see homes. But Ellyn made herself available at all different times! She was also very knowledgeable with the area and when it came to closing was very detail orientated so nothing was missed! She was absolutely wonderful to work with!— Jamie C.
Ellyn was a huge help in our home buying process from start to finish. We were first-time home buyers and completely lost in the process of buying a home. She was always quick to answer and questions we had and helped us navigate the complete process. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.— Buyer
We started just looking on our own and didn't plan on finding the perfect home, until we went through the experience with Lynn! She is amazing, loving, understanding, attentive and part of our family! Give her a chance and she will become part of yours as well!— Love G.
Ellyn has a wealth of knowledge and energy to help you find the right home. She was helpful and responsive at all times of the day. This was our first home buying experience and we feel lucky to have had Ellyn be our realtor.— Buyer
I could not have asked for a better first time home buying experience. She asked me questions I couldn’t have thought of and gave us all the information we could possibly ask for. Very well versed in the Atlanta area.— Ed B.
Ellyn was excellent, courteous, thorough and knowledgeable. She was timely in her response and will definitely use her again and refer her to others! We were so pleased in our house hunt with her!— Valerie V.
Ellyn is a very dedicated professional. Although time was not on our side she did make every attempt to assist. Thank you for your time and professionalism.— Maria P.
