Ellen Grubert & Janis Lippman, Realtors and Senior Vice Presidents

The Ellen and Janis Team, Compass


Ellen Grubert and Janis Lippman are trusted advisers for buyers, sellers and real estate developers in Jamaica Plain, Roslindale and West Roxbury and throughout the Greater Boston area. Accredited Buyer’s Representatives and Realtors, Grubert and Lippman have lived and worked in the Boston area for more than 40 years, during which they’ve developed a deep understanding of the city’s neighborhoods.

Grubert and Lippman have more than 20 years of experience in real estate. Their collaborative spirit, forward-looking approach and commitment to excellence have helped earn them rave reviews from clients and develop a strong referral business. In 2021, the Ellen and Janis Team was recognized as one of the top 10 real estate sales teams in Boston by MLS PIN. The National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals and Real Trends both recognized Grubert and Lippman as one of the top-producing LGBTQ real estate teams in the country.

The team has worked closely with some of Boston’s most accomplished developers. They were the exclusive marketing agents for 45 On Burnett, a 44-unit LEED-certified condo development in Jamaica Plain. As Grubert and Lippman note, “It was a true team effort, with fabulous support from our brokerage, Compass.” They sold out the project during the pandemic.

In the fast-paced Boston market, the marketing platform and exclusive programs offered by Compass have also been instrumental to Grubert and Lippman’s success.

Real estate is a natural extension of Grubert’s experience in sales and Lippman’s work in theater management. Partners in business and life, they cannot imagine doing anything else. “Our personal and professional partnership,” they say, “allows us to play to our individual strengths — negotiations, marketing and business operations.”

Grubert and Lippman’s community support and fundraising efforts are focused on Keshet, Community Servings, The Home for Little Wanderers, the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition and many others. When they’re not working, they like to spend time with friends and family, travel, and walk their dog, Frieda, around Jamaica Pond.
