Ellyn is a lifelong Minnesota resident; she was born in Minneapolis to her artist mother, Elayne and her businessman father, Marvin Wolfenson. Ellyn’s creativity has been fostered by her mother, this helped her realize the importance of thinking outside the box and finding alternative solutions. Ellyn’s father, co-founder of the Northwest Racquet, Swim & Health Clubs and the Minnesota Timberwolves/Target Center, taught her the importance of timing, relationships and humility in business.
Ellyn’s previous experience as a Registered Nurse prepared her to beautifully blend the compassion and caring attributes of a nurse with the integrity, nuance and perseverance needed to be a successful businessperson. This combination has helped her to become one of the top Real Estate agents in the industry.
From first-time homebuyers to empty nesters and everything in between, Ellyn enjoys working with clients of all ages and price range in virtually every Twin Cities’ community. She understands the art of negotiation, patience and the emotion involved in making the entire process of buying and selling a home an enjoyable and successful one.
Ellyn has continued her family's legacy of community awareness and “giving back.” In her spare time she enjoys playing tennis, running and experiencing the beauty of Minnesota. However, Ellyn will tell you unequivocally that her greatest role and joy is being mom to her amazing children; Lauren (Brad), Brooke (Adam), Carly (Howie) and Ben and grandmother (Bubs) to her beautiful grandchildren. Ellyn and her husband Mick reside in SW Minneapolis where they both grew up.
