Kathy is an amazing Real Estate agent. Honest, experienced, smart, and connected. Just to list a few of her characteristics. If you are looking for the best deal in Malibu, talk to Kathy Ellis. She is also loaded with off-market deals. That’s how we got ours. - R.K.


Kathy was one of the best and honest realtors I have worked with. She was patient, honest, great communication skills and thoughtful. In fact, even since we closed the transaction she is readily available and always helpful. Her attitude is amazing, her real estate knowledge is extraordinary, and her patience was the best. She is an amazing real estate agent. I highly recommend her!!!! - B.A.


We are extremely fortunate that Kathy represented our Malibu home. She is the consummate professional — she knows the Malibu market intimately, is very responsive, and is always a pleasure to work with. At every step of the process, she represented our interests and reached a quick agreement without any drama. She definitely went the extra mile to close a sale with a happy buyer who loves our home. Her site advertises luxurious client care. If you want to know the true meaning of the phrase, hire Kathy to help you buy or sell your home. - L.J.


I have known of Kathy for many years at Malibu shores. It seemed to me she was on most of the sales over the years. I saved some of her mailings knowing I will sell someday. A few years ago she met me to give me an idea of what it is worth. Kathy took the time to show me some of the units she had sold both remodeled and not. I decided to lease it out and she kept in touch with me. Never any pressure , just checking to see if I still had a tenant. The first week of April she called and this time the tenant had just given notice they were moving out at the end of the month. Kathy told me she has a buyer she thinks will love the beach property so we signed a one time agreement to show the unit to them. The tenant was still in and not real cooperative to allow a showing. Kathy handled the situation with her superior skills to show the property. The next day she presented a good offer to me and the escrow opened April 17. Kathy was able to work with the tenant to allow a couple inspections. Several of the inspections had to wait until after the move out. Kathy had them all set up and they happened quickly in the first week of May. There were several negotiations and compromises that were handled by Kathy in a very professional manner. Escrow closed June 2. That is just a hard working knowledgeable , experienced realtor in action. The entire process was amazing to me! - R.P.


Kathy sold our home on a dirt road in the mountains in 2 weeks with multiple cash offers. She knows how to present a property in its best light, and had the right photographer, declutter consultant, and associates for us. She works hard and is the one who showed our home personally. She gave us sound advice about pricing our property and led us through the intricacies of disclosures, offers, counter offers and the like. We were ready for a long haul for our listing but got a quick sale to great buyers. - J.N.


Kathy is a very experienced agent. She knows the Malibu market extremely well and clearly understands her clients' needs. Hard working, quick response, and smart advising are her strengths. - H.G.


I was amazed about her capability when Kathy was successfully representing me in buying and selling my property. I trusted her in guiding me through the steps from the beginning to the end. The information and support she provided to me were crucial in making smooth processes. I was lucky to have Kathy to represent me in both transactions. - M.R.


After knowing Kathy Ellis for a couple years, and given how active she is within Malibu and our community, we approached her about the potential of selling our home. However we were hoping for a quick, simple transaction and did not want to go through a full listing period. We trusted Kathy with a short-term arrangement and within a week she generated multiple offers above our desired price. She helped advise us thru the negotiation process, and we ended with an extremely simple 30-day close... the easiest sales transaction we have ever had. Kathy is a highly experienced pro, and we would not hesitate to recommend her in the future. - D.S.


Kathy Ellis sold our Malibu beachfront home recently, and she did a terrific job. She procured an offer for us in under 10 days, in fact we had three offers to choose from! The photos were gorgeous, and the transaction went very smooth. She advocated for us all along the way, she was really on our side and fought for the things we wanted and how we wanted the sale to go. I highly recommend her if you're buying or selling in Malibu, and look forward to working with her again in the future. - T.A.


I met Kathy Ellis approximately 13 years ago when I was looking for a home in Malibu. I met her at an ocean front home that I liked, but had just gone into escrow. Kathy stated that she would keep an eye out for a similar property and shortly thereafter contacted me to advise that she came across another similar home in the same area that she thought could be purchased for a good price. Kathy represented me in negotiating a very good deal for that home. Over the years, I spoke to several other persons who stated that they also used Kathy to buy and sell their homes at the beach and all were very happy with her services.
When I recently decided to sell my home in Malibu and purchase another one, I immediately thought of Kathy. I retained Kathy to sell my home and look for a replacement that I described to her. Kathy was a big help in telling me what I needed to do to make my home more saleable. I made the minor upgrades that she suggested and she sold the home almost immediately. She thereafter found the replacement home that I described to her almost immediately and represented me in the purchase of that home, which went very smoothly. She also was very helpful in making recommendations for the remodeling of the home, the selection of a contractor, etc.
I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in Malibu or any of the adjoining beach communities. - L.D.


I didn’t know Kathy personally or professionally before a local agent friend recommended her to me. (I live in northern CA). My friend was impressed with Kathy’s marketing skills, professionalism, and past performance. During our first meeting at my Malibu property, Kathy mentioned that she comes across as having a calm, serene, peaceful demeanor, but really she’s a tiger inside! I now know that’s true. Even during a pandemic and economic shut-down, Kathy managed to sell my place three times in a few short months! When it fell out of escrow, Kathy would have showings and find potential buyers within days and we’d be back in escrow. I don’t know how she managed it, but I’m so thankful she was in my corner. Kathy works incredibly hard and has the skill set to get the job done. She was sensitive to my needs and desires, plus offered expert advice. It’s hard to say enough good things about Kathy. I only wish I had known about her months earlier. Instead I made the mistake of listing with an agent who proved to be worthless, costing me lots of time and money. When his contract expired, my local friend stepped in to help and found Kathy for me. Don’t make the mistake I did. Go with Kathy the first time around and rest assured that you’ve chosen the best! - S.T.

My family had been trying to sell their Malibu condo off and on for a few years. When they decided enough was enough and hired Kathy, she went over and beyond to get it sold. We were very impressed with her knowledge and network, and also getting it sold during these unprecedented times. On top of all of this, the condo fell out of escrow twice before it sold, and each time she had buyers lined up again almost immediately. We highly recommend Kathy! - T.Z.

This is my 2nd time working with Kathy. She understands the dynamics of Malibu real estate like no other, and yet, down to earth and responsive. She is solution oriented and worked hard to market our home and get it sold. Highly recommend her! - O.K.

Kathy Ellis was so kind and helpful when selling my home in Malibu. I couldn’t have had a better experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting an honest and professional realtor.-  R.B.


Kathy was a god-send and sold our property right at probably the hardest point of 2020, after the coronavirus hit and things had been shut down for a couple months. She worked so hard for us in the midst of so many unknowns and challenges. She knew just how to stage it and bring out the absolute best of it. She networked and found all the right folks to show it to even in the midst of shutdowns. Her expertise was clear and her professionalism so very much appreciated, especially after having had worked with other realtors in the past who now we know were clearly nowhere near her caliber. Highly recommend! Thank you Kathy! - C.B.
