Karlyn Ellis, Broker/Owner



Karlyn grew up in Southern California and graduated from Irvine High School in 1991. She moved to Texas in 1994 and met her husband James, a custom home builder. They have 2 children, ages 9 and 16. Being married to a custom home builder, Karlyn found real estate a perfect fit for career path. She originally started out buying and selling for their personal use, but quickly took it on full-time. She has been a licensed Broker since 2006. Karlyn founded Prosper Properties with a partner back in 2012. Their dream was to offer a locally owned brokerage that would offer full support to agents that would allow them to grow and reach their full potential. In 2018 Karlyn felt the move from an independent brokerage (Prosper Properties) to a franchise such as Realty ONE Group would add much needed value to her agents that she just could not get being an independent. The technology, tools and training that she can now provide her agents will allow them to grow far beyond what was once imagined.

I love Realty ONE Group Prosper mostly because of the people I'm lucky to work with. Karlyn is by far the best at what she does. She's always available, helpful, understanding and 100% knows her stuff. You won't regret or look back if you come join this fabulous team of people!

Working at Realty ONE Group Prosper is a refreshing change from other brokers I have used in the past. I love the relaxed and very fun environment. Karlyn the broker is very knowledgeable and a joy to work with. I highly recommend giving Realty ONE a strong consideration.

- Jason Jordan

As a new realtor, I really lucked out when I chose Realty ONE Group Prosper. Originally, I chose them because I would get to keep most of my commissions and the free, small group training. I had no idea how welcoming, supportive and responsive their team would be. Not just the supportive staff and other realtors, but the owners and broker too. It builds my confidence while being new to the industry and working in the office, one of them is always sitting in the next room and available to be responsive and give their wisdom. I'm proud to be part of their team.
