More About Me

Here to serve you!

Welcome to my page! Although I grew up in Ann Arbor, I could not be more proud to call the West Michigan area home. When a job change brought my husband and I to Holland in 2014, we knew we had found our "forever town". The mix of small town community values and outdoor recreation (THE LAKE!) had us hooked! 

I attended the University of Michigan where I was a four year varsity letter-winner on the Swimming & Diving team. After graduating with a degree in Communications Studies, I spent the next ten years working for digital media agencies. My background in project management and marketing coupled with my passion for client services led me to a career in real estate in 2017. Since then I have helped over fifty families through the home buying and selling process.

I absolutely love what I do and I am here to serve you! Please don’t hesitate to reach out for help with any of your real estate needs. 

Client Testimonials

"Newly retired from four decades of overseas living, and finding ourselves as first-time home buyers in our mid-60s, we are happy to have found Ellen Jansen to be a wonderful companion and guide as we looked at and selected a home in Holland.  We had first contacted her while still in Asia, and made an appointment for an initial interview soon after landing here. She was encouraging and competent, and always on our side, always keeping our interests at heart. With her very hands-on participation in the entire process, we were always up to date. She worked directly with the investment company that held our saved “house purchase” funds to make the purchase transition very smooth." - Char A. 

"Moving was a spur of the moment decision for our family, and Ellen was nothing short of amazing getting us through the stressful process. She managed to help us get our house ready, list it, sell it within 24 hours, and purchase our dream home all within about two weeks. She understood us being  picky, and was always there to answer questions." - Sarah D. 

"Ellen Jansen was our agent for the purchase of our new home and for the sale of our old home.  She was incredibly patient with us as we chose our dream home. (Our dream changed a few times and we looked at a lot of great houses).  You cannot find a friendlier or more helpful agent. We had a great experience with her and highly recommend her to you." - Angela B.

"Working with Ellen Jansen at Coldwell Banker exceeded my expectations. As first time homebuyers, my family  and I did not know much about the process, but Ellen jumped on board and guided us throughout the entire process. She provided honest and helpful information that greatly reduced our stress  levels of buying a home. Ellen was flexible with her schedule and was very responsive to our phone calls and texts. Since we are currently in a seller’s market, a lot of our offers were turned down and that began to kill our hopes. Ellen did not give up; she continued to look for other options and we were able to finally get one of our offers accepted. We believed that our home buying process would be very stressful, but with the help of Ellen the process was stress free and simple. Bottom Line: We had a positive experience and we would highly recommend working with Ellen!" - Edwin V.
