Ella Williams could not have done more for me in looking, finding and helping to buy my house than she did last year. She was the realtor, my friend, helping me with the mortgage company, getting the appraiser to move faster, making sure the seller gave me the best deal possible, and finally working with me at the closing.
Zillow Review 1/22/2013
I could never thank her enough for walking me through the process from beginning to end and she was always there, by phone or by person.
We have worked with Ella on several investment properties and the purchase of the land we built our dream home on. Ella is extremely hard working, dilligent, fair, knowledgable, and always pleasant to work with. She demonstrates a genuine concern in helping her clients find what they want in a home. Her knowledge of the area is also a great asset which her clients benefit from. We would recommend Ella to anyone looking for a home.

I feel pretty confident in saying that you could not find a more knowledgeable or customer-focused person to help you buy or sell a home than Ella Williams and her team.
Zillow Review: Port Matilda, PA 4/4/2013
There are a ton of things to consider and keep track of when buying or selling and Ella never let any detail slip by without making sure we were well informed and on top of things. She spent the time to really get to know what we wanted and guide us through the process. Looking back I would have to say it was more like working with a family member than a professional realtor. Her bottom line was our satisfaction, no matter how long it took, and that is why I would use her again in a heartbeat.
Her knowledge of the area is also pretty amazing so we saw several very nice places during our search. And once we settled on a house her administrative and contract skills moved the purchase process forward with no worries.
Finally, we sold our starter home at the same time we bought our new home and when it came to staging the house we followed Ella’s suggestions pretty closely. As it turned out, the old house was on the market for a little more than one week before she brought us the offer we were looking for. You could not do better than Ella and her team.
I highly recommend Ella Williams, she was terrific when I bought my house, she was helpful, knowledgeable, efficient, and extremely professional. In addition to being extremely a nice person and warm person which helps when you are buying a house in a new town. She knows the market and helps to make the right decisions. I was extremely happy with her.

I enjoyed working with them. They kept me informed during the whole process and responded to my calls, texts and emails very promptly. I would highly recommend the Williams Team.
Zillow Review: Julian, PA 5/4/2015
Very optimistic and positive attitude. Customer-focused and accommodating. Has a firm grasp of the local central PA market, in particular, Centre County. Would be an ideal seller or buyer's agent.
Zillow Review: Lemont, PA 5/10/2015
Ella is knowledgeable and professional. She knows the area well, has considerable experience as a Realtor, and is extremely responsive. Her recommendations for getting the house ready to show were important to getting the house under contract quickly.
Zillow Review: Pine Grove Mills, PA 9/23/2015
We had a great experience with them. They helped us tremendously with our first time buy. It was a lengthy and stressful process and they were very helpful and reassuring through the entire process.
Zillow Review: Philipsburg, PA 10/13/2015
Ella is a consummate real estate professional. She is hands-on from listing to close. She uses every tool available to market the home. Ella and her staff are always available to show the home or answer questions.
Zillow Review: Clearfield, PA 1/25/2016
Wonderful to work with!! Very experienced in all aspects of the business. Was helpful in selling a difficult property. Worked well with us as the seller and also brought the buyer.
Zillow Review: State College, PA 2/3/2016
We were looking for a house for over a year with another realtor and were not satisfied with the level of their commitment to us. Ella immediately started working on houses that were in our price range and the third house she showed us was absolutely perfect! She explained things to us in a language that we could understand and helped us through the entire process from beginning to end.
Zillow Review: Millheim, PA 1/30/2019
I've known for... well... awhile...... that Ella Williams is the best real estate person in the mid-state(Anywhere?), and I finally had the chance to beg of her expertise to sell a property. The hardest thing about this sale was the client - me. However, Ella and everyone (And there were many folks involved in getting this done - thank you!) hung in there, worked hard to teach me and to show customers the stellar beauty, utility and value of this land - for just the right buyer. Took a while - a long while, but that's me - very, very slow to make decisions. Though when I finally learn what I want and get the offer, I'm ready. I don't know that anyone but Ella could have held-on so long - (ha?). Thank you so much, Ms. Williams! It is a great pleasure to know you.
Realtor.com Review: Teddy Genevish
You are so multi-talented, both with the paperwork,, the people involved and the inner workings of the real estate market. You truly do have a calling in the "PEOPLE" business. And you sent the documents to apple as well, from start to finish!! Incredible again! When this is over, I want to take you and Wendy out for dinner, on me. Just to say "Thank You" does not seem enough, but Thank you for all your efforts over this and if there is anything else I need to do, let me know and I will handle it as well as you know anything when it comes to selling/buying U B DA WOMAN!!!
Realtor.com Review: Hank Kholos
There are no words to describe our gratitude for all you have done. It has been a pleasure to work with you.
Realtor.com Review: Samar Sajay
As a life long community resident, I consider Ella Williams to be the best real estate agents in the area. My wife and I recently worked with them to sell our home. Our property was challenging in many ways and the struggling housing market further complicated matters. Ella worked very hard for us and successfully sold the property in a short amount of time. Their responsiveness to our needs, creativity, experience, and calm leadership made the experience very positive for us.
Realtor.com Review: John S. Wilson
Ella, I just wanted to thank you for your efforts in this case. Quite simply, without your involvement, this would not have gotten done. You were persistent (indeed tenacious) in your dealings with Premier Capital. You did a great service to us. Thanks again!
Realtor.com Review: Michael P. Coughlin, Esquire
Thank you for your "Extraordinary" effort in bringing this matter together.
Realtor.com Review: Dominic A DeCecco, Esquire
I have worked with Ella for the past 3 years on numerous transactions. As I do not live in State College, I have relied on Ella to leverage her local knowledge of the market, as well as her extensive base of contacts, to support my activities. Ella has always been willing to go the "EXTRA MILE" to help ensure the transaction closes as expected. I am extremely pleased with all aspects of her efforts. Ella is an 11 out of 10! It is truly a pleasure working with her, and I. look forward to the next project we do together.
Realtor.com Review: Mike Harrison
We were completely happy with the settlement on the house. Everything really worked out. I know Ella put tons of work into showing our home, and we really are grateful for all of her efforts.

Highly recommend! Great realtors to work with, especially Ella Williams! So appreciate all the hard work and clear explanations to all who were involved with our closing!
Facebook Review: Ellen Plante
If you’re selling or buying, call Ella. She’s the best, the most knowledgeable, most awesomest Realtor, and worth every penny. She sold our house in about two days.
Facebook Review: Theresa Ann Casper Nelson
She did a commendable job serving as our buyer’s agent. As we were new to the area, she toured us around several neighborhoods and even showed us houses on a holiday. After we successfully closed on the home, Ella provided some names of contractors and other service providers, which was very helpful. Me and my family highly recommend Ella!
Formal Recommendation: Greg Kufner
It is with great pleasure that I write a few words to recommend and thank my realtor and now friend, Ella Williams. We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Ella for almost a decade ago when we were trying to find an investment property in State College. We were immediately impressed with her outstanding professionalism, her unremitting diligence and the excellence of her character. Over the years, we had several opportunities to work again with Ella in the purchase and sale of properties and to observe her in action as she patiently responded to our multiple demands. We were constantly amazed by her resourcefulness and skills.
Formal Recommendation: Dr. Samar Farage
Ella has always been proactive in meeting her clients’ needs. Not only does she have extensive knowledge and solid experience in real estate, but she has been most reliable, amiable and ethical in all her transactions. She has constantly shown attentiveness and promptness as she negotiated the best market prices for us and helped us find financial and contracting services.
Ella’s extensive network in State College and the surrounding areas also shows the respect she receives in the community due to her moral professional character and wonderful personality. She understands the needs of her clients and would even exceed their demands.
I was very impressed by her relentless responsiveness to our requests. She showed us dozens of properties and displayed unwavering patience when we clearly were indecisive. At every showing she was punctual, prepared, warm and enthusiastic. She was so quick to respond to questions and inquiries.
Ella Williams truly cares about her clients which is a rare thing these days when greet has overtaken contracts and relationships. Ella stands out as a dignified, devoted, positive and highly responsible agent. She has always shown the highest levels of expertise and honesty as she always has her clients’ best interest at heart.
Ella is a true role model for anyone in the real estate business. She is a model of both excellent professionalism and generosity of character. It has been our great privilege to work with Ella and we highly recommend her for her excellent professional experience and her integrity.
I have known Ella professionally for more than 20 years. She assisted my family in the sale and purchase of several homes in Centre County. She is very personable and is the consummate professional. I am convinced that these two traits, coupled with her attention to detail, off-the-chart energy levels, and overall high level of motivation are the reasons why she is so successful in the real estate profession, and why she would be a great addition to any organization she might set her mind on working with or helping.
Formal Recommendation: Robert (and Sheila) Barlock
Her knowledge of real estate is more than impressive, as is her ability to keep a sale or purchase moving forward in an efficient and friendly way. I have always felt well-informed when either buying or selling a house with Ella. She has a keen eye for detail and her advice on how best to position a property for sale, or what to look for when purchasing, has always been spot on. Her knowledge of everything from construction details through neighborhood amenities has always amazed me. We followed her advice very closely when positioning our last house for sale (on everything from landscaping to carpeting) and had an offer that we were more than happy with within 10 days. When purchasing our last house, Ella was instrumental in helping us come to an understanding of what features were most important to us, which made what can be a stressful time-consuming process enjoyable.
I have also known Ella and Wendy personally for many years. She is a very well-respected member of the community and is a very grounded person. She has a long list of charities and worthwhile causes that she supports, and I know from personal experience that she places her husband and family above all else.
I hope you can get to know Ella both professionally and personally, as well as a valued community member.
