Ellen BartosAssociate Broker

I have lived in the hills of Western Massachusetts for most of my life. After twenty years of making my living as an art potter (along with some career interludes as a whitewater raft guide, wilderness cook, and mulepacker in California’s Sierra mountains) my interests began to include real estate. I bought my first condo in 1991 for $45,000, and in 2013 I sold the most expensive home ever sold in Northampton, for $1.7 million dollars. I have had years of experience buying and selling residential and investment properties, both on my own behalf and for clients, running the gamut from condos to high-end homes. I worked closely with Dennis Delap for more than twelve years as his team member— I learned from the best in the business! I am committed to continuing the quality of service and personal caring for clients that was Dennis’s trademark. A licensed Realtor with my Broker’s License and my National Association of Realtors “Green” designation, I am a co-owner of Delap Real Estate LLC. I love searching for the perfect home for my clients and guiding them through the process of buying or selling. This process CAN be enjoyable and (relatively) stress-free, with me along to smooth the path! I enjoy the personal interaction with clients, but I also delight in the creative side of the job, producing beautiful professional-quality photographs of seller’s homes, and designing effective marketing brochures and websites for my clients. I live by a creek in Westhampton with my husband, two lovely horses, a couple of kitties, and a very cute dog. I am active on the Westhampton Open Space Committee and I love my town!

Co-owner and associate broker at Delap Real Estate. Member of Realtor Association of Pioneer Valley, MA Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.

  • Ellen was absolutely wonderful to work with from beginning to end. She helped us sell our condo very quickly (her special camera lens takes stunning photos), and then helped us close on our dream home! She is kind, professional, has integrity, and went the extra mile for us!

  • Ellen provided her expert support every step of the way. I could always count on her reliability, integrity, and knowledge to answer my questions and guide my next steps. Her calm, steadying demeanor made me feel like selling a house is no big deal, even though it is.

  • Ellen succeeded in selling our home in a very challenging buyer’s market. Out of over 30 homes listed in the small town of Conway, ours was one of a handful that sold in 2013. On more than one occasion we felt that the buyer’s agent was making unreasonable demands ( and vice versa.) We were ready to walk away from the process, but Ellen remained diplomatic. If we had failed to sell our home last fall we would have faced significant hardship. Ellen was patient throughout the long process. She accommodated a few unusual requests on our part. For example, she arranged to have our piano moved when we were out of town. She more than earned her commission.

  • Ellen is wonderful to work with. Professional and highly knowledgeable, yet she is also down to earth. She will also work on your behalf, whether it is showing you 30 properties or selling your home.

  • I can't say enough about Ellen Bartos. She worked with us reliably and consistently to sell our house, in a market in which there was not much demand. She is an immensely warm and decent human being, with high ethical standards and a calm demeanor. She is someone that it is always pleasant to sit down with, on the deck at sunset, and chat over a glass of wine. Ellen  found us a family who wanted the house. To effect this, though, Ellen had to first sell their condo for them, before they could buy our property. She handled both deals simultaneously with quiet and calm efficiency. I recommend Ellen very highly indeed, and without reservation, to anyone who wants a trustworthy and honorable ally in the purchase and sale of property. She knows the area thoroughly and has years  success under her belt. But, more than that, she works hard on your behalf and it is always wonderful to spend time, professionally and personally.
