About Ellen Bland

Ellen Bland, Realtors, GRI

Ellen knows all about moving. As the wife of an Air Force and UPS pilot, she has made
12 cross-country moves, finally landing in Louisville in 1999. She continued her successful real estate career by joining Wakefield Reutlinger Realtors (WRrealtors for short). She offers a solid, full-time real estate experience for her clients plus a background in marketing and customer service. She is personally involved on a day-to day-basis throughout her client's entire transaction. To enhance her service, she formed a partnership with another successful agent, Jim Aubrey who has a background in construction and as a home inspector. She has also fulfilled several management roles at WR over the past few years.

"It's a delight to come to work every day, to help people navigate the ever more complicated world of real estate. My clients deserve to have an agent who is focused on their transaction every step of the way. Developing friendships which last past the closing table is especially rewarding. I'm honored to continue to be an advisor for them, their family and friends as their lives take twists and turns, bringing on new real estate challenges."  Ellen Bland
