Ella Ricalde-Desbois Associate Real Estate Broker
Ella Desbois has over 15 years of real estate experience. Prior to joining the Elegran team, she worked in sales and marketing with The Marketing Directors representing New York's distinguished developers as SJP Properties, Moinian Group, The Witkoff, Rose Associates, and Adellco. Ella understands that real estate dealings are extremely personal and often emotional. Her goal is to bring an expertise, diligence, and sensitivity that is equal with the importance of each real estate transaction to her clients, eliminating the stress and unknown in order to elevate the experience of purchasing property.
Ella works with sellers to develop creative and modern marketing strategies that accentuate the highlights of their property. This not only ensures maximum exposure, but targets the right type of well-qualified buyers. She also strives to listen to the buyer and focus on what is important to them. This goes well beyond basics like size, neighborhood, and price, she is also diligent in ensuring a potential property is fully vetted, and the client knows the pros and cons of the unit both now and down the road.
Ella believes in transparency and providing guidance throughout every step of the real estate process to make sure her clients are comfortable. She assists in every aspect of the transaction, from recommending and liaising with legal representation and mortgage providers to setting up any staging or contracting needs that might improve the sale. Ella views client relationships as long term commitment and believes that these relationships should be built on honesty, hard work, premium service, and superior results. Through this philosophy, she has earned the trust of her clients. Their repeat business and recommendation are as high of a compliment a broker can receive.
Ella spent many years living on the Upper West Side and she currently lives in Westchester with her husband and children.
Ella graduated from a renowned all-girls school, Assumption College with a Bachelor in Advertising and Marketing and has made New York her home since the mid-1990s. Before becoming a real estate agent, she worked in advertising for Ogilvy and Mather as a Media Buyer.
