Ellen began her real estate career in 2013 at U.S. Equities and joined CBRE in 2014 after the acquisition. Ellen’s success in her brokerage role in the Investor Leasing Group started when she became an Associate in 2016 and she quickly worked her way to achieving the First Vice President title. Currently she represents a wide range of owners in the CBD including Blackstone and EQ Office, UBS, The Melohn Group, HCD Chicago Corporation, and The Lelyn Group. Ellen has been recognized by CBRE as a Chicago Circle Award winner in 2017 and 2018 and was recently appointed a member of the COLBA Board in a YOBA/COLBA liaison role. CBRE recently nominated Ellen to be a member of the inaugural Bonfire Cohort, a Women in Business organization focusing on “igniting the power of women through unique programs and curriculum” during a 9-month experience. When she is not focused on office leasing, Ellen is planning her next travel adventure, attending country concerts, and accumulating Lettuce Entertain You rewards points. Ellen is a Phi Beta Kappa and Cum Laude graduate of Indiana University.
