I grew up in Sanford, North Carolina but have come to call Durham my home. I love being part of such a vibrant community that offers so much in the areas of arts, education and culture. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Business Administration and immediately began my career in the banking industry. My husband and I then moved to his hometown of Lexington, NC, where our daughter was born.

While in Lexington, I worked for the High Point Furniture Market. My seven years there enabled my interest in and talent for staging and home design to flourish. Working in a showroom taught me so much about creating a space that reflects individual style and the value of staging homes for sale. It was at this time I realized that, once our daughter left for college, I wanted to become involved in the real estate industry. However, until that time, my focus would remain on what I consider my most important work to date – raising and nurturing my family.

I became actively involved in the Lexington community through volunteer work, the Charity League and eventually the office manager at my daughter’s school. A job change for my husband brought us back to Durham in 2001. I continued my community involvement, as our daughter participated in the performing arts throughout the Triangle area.

I have been a Durham Public Schools Volunteer for eleven years and recently served on the Board of Directors for Performance Edge in Raleigh. I have such a fondness for this region because of all of the work I’ve done here. It has enabled me to fully appreciate the character and charm that this wonderful area exudes! I am so excited to be a licensed Realtor.

I believe my financial background in banking and office management, my creative experience from the furniture market, and my personal commitment to offer the highest level of customer service will allow me to excel in this dynamic industry. I am proud to be a part of the Lisa Ellis & Company team that shares this passion and commitment and look forward to becoming even more involved in this fabulous community.
