When Halstead Property’s own Ross Ellis (pictured to the right of Nick Cannon above) is not busy helping adults find homes as an agent at our East Side Office, she donates her time to help children as the founder and CEO of STOMP Out Bullying™. STOMP Out is the leading national anti-bullying and cyberbullying program for kids and teens created in 2005. The primary mission of STOMP Out Bullying™ is to focus on reducing and preventing bullying, cyberbullying, and other digital abuse, educating against homophobia, racism and hatred, decreasing school absenteeism, and deterring violence in schools, online and in communities across the country.

Ross considers herself very lucky as she is passionate about helping kids and selling real estate and now gets to do both in her daily life.

“I do sometimes feels like a juggler, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. My days consist of selling homes, appearing in TV or in other media interviews, speaking at schools and to parenting groups, creating stronger partnerships to help kids, just amazing,” explains Ellis.

Time is not the only thing she gives however. She also amazingly donates a portion of each real estate commissions to the charity. We wonder how Ross finds the time to do it but she says knowing she’s helped kids and making someone’s dream come true because she sold them their dream home keeps her going! We salute you, Ross, keep up the great work!
