"We are excited to have her on our team and look forward to what the future holds for both our Chapel Hill and Pittsboro agents."

Elliott has called the Triangle her home since birth. She was born in Raleigh and has family who lives all throughout the Triangle. "I love living in the Triangle because it is the best of all worlds," said Elliott. "I love the diversity in the people, restaurants, architecture, etc. I love the sporting events and university rivalries. Also, we get to experience the beauty in all four seasons, and we can drive to the beach or mountains with ease."
Elliott enjoys traveling, cooking, gardening, reading, yoga, running and spending time with family and friends. She is also involved with giving back to our community and helping to make a difference. "I have been active in Susan G Komen's Walk for the Cure," said Elliott.
