A resident of the Florida Keys for more than 20 years, Ellen Gvili has always been driven by a sense of curiosity and passion for helping others. Born and raised in Germany, she would travel the world after earning her Masters Degree in North and South American Studies and Journalism, spending time in England, Spain, and South America. Upon settling down in Key West with her husband, she began to take an interest in real estate during the purchase of their home and started her real estate career in 2003. When listing a home, Ellen is there for her clients each step of the way. After helping them fully prepare their property for the market and equipping them with a suite of professional resources, from standout photography to videography, she broadcasts their home over a blend of targeted digital and social media campaigns, and she also shares her listings via print advertisements in local and national newspapers.
In the meantime, Ellen is just as hands-on with her buyers, leveraging her extensive professional sphere and in-depth knowledge of the Florida Keys to locate the right home for their best interests. Moreover, she stays in touch long after the deals are done to keep each client fully apprised of the market and ensure they are enjoying life in their dream home.
Through the years, Ellen has earned a fantastic reputation across the Florida Keys—and the world. Fluent in German and Spanish, she fully embraces the process of collaborating with her international clients, maintaining a strong standard of communication above all else.
Outside her career, Ellen is deeply involved in her community. On top of contributing to her local animal shelter and youth sports, she also supports the Florida Keys Children’s Shelter, Habitat for Humanity, and the Key West Art and Historical Society. When she’s not with clients or giving back, she enjoys yoga, playing tennis, or relaxing at home with her beloved husband, two boys, and their Yorkie.
