About Us

Ellis Consulting Group provides Concierge Owner’s Rep Services for Clients looking to build a new waterfront home in Sarasota Florida. We provide expert guidance through the site selection, builder selection, planning and design, negotiation and remain your experienced and objective eyes and ears during the construction of your new home. By investing in a Waterfront Construction Specialist as your Owner’s Rep, you will receive timely advice and counsel throughout the project, and have an expert looking out solely for your interests. The cost of an independent Owner’s Rep should yield a substantial multiple return on investment in the form of savings and increased equity at project completion, along with smoother project delivery, accountability and reduced stress. Stephen Ellis - LEED AP, grew up in Boston in the construction industry and has always had a passion for fine architecture, design, and physical space that can enhance life’s experiences. His father built the largest publicly traded development and construction business of the 1970’s taking run-down factories and rebuilding them into residential buildings, artist-lofts and low-income housing. Steve’s first summer jobs were in construction and his older brother is a life-long custom home builder in Vermont. “I have been in and around the building business for a long time and when I moved to Sarasota I started buying properties, hiring and firing many different Sarasota builders until in 2006, I decided I could really improve the home building experience for other people and build a business doing what I am passionate about.” Despite starting his first construction firm in 2006, at the beginning of a massive downturn in the construction industry, Ellis partnered with a small Licensed Contractor, and recruited a winning team to lead the company to record growth landing it on the Inc. Magazine’s list of fastest growing companies for two consecutive years. Steve was also honored with an induction into Sarasota’s Economic Development Corp.’s Hall of Fame; Small Business of the Year by the Sarasota Manatee Chamber of Commerce; and being named one of Florida’s top 50 Companies to Watch. Steve’s firm focused on building some of the very finest waterfront homes in Sarasota Florida and garnered a stellar reputation.
