Meet Ellen

John L. Scott Port Townsend’s Ellen Niemitalo became a broker in 2015 after working for the IBM Corporation for 32 years. After living all over the U.S., Ellen moved to Port Townsend in 2010 because it offered exactly what she was looking for – a small town with a big heart, spectacular views at every turn, interesting and engaged people, as well as endless outdoor activities. Selling real estate was a natural next step for Ellen, combining her business acumen with her passion for bringing people together with the right property.

Ellen specializes in single-family homes, condos and vacant land in the Port Townsend, Port Ludlow and Port Hadlock areas. She is a member of John L. Scott’s relocation team, and oftentimes assists clients coming in from other states, moving to the Pacific Northwest for retirement, or acquiring a home for future retirement. Ellen approaches each home search or home sale as a partnership with her clients. Her mission is to serve as a trusted advisor, advocating on her clients’ behalf every step along the way.

As someone who has made numerous corporate and voluntary moves throughout her life, Ellen is the ideal broker to empathize with clients of all types, providing the help needed to make the transition smooth. In the past when she has house hunted for herself, Ellen always looked at numerous homes to ensure she didn’t miss out on anything. Accordingly, she can relate if buyers want to see 20+ houses before making a decision, and is happy to help conduct the search for the perfect one.

Ellen’s interests include yoga, hiking, animals, cooking, baking and spending time with friends. She’s very passionate about animal rights causes, and plans to donate her entire net income in 2019 to a local animal rescue organization and also provide pet food to local food banks. It’s Ellen’s belief that if you get up in the morning working to make the world a better place, you become a better person and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
