Ellen & Mike are owners of EXIT Cornerstone Realty and joined the EXIT Family in July 2010, and have been full-time real estate professionals in the Virginia Piedmont since 2003. We have enjoyed helping our valued clients buy or sell all types of real estate, from large tracts of land to short sales and foreclosures.
We put forth 100% effort and dedication to every task and transaction. Our experience spans the market--we have been on both sides of apartment, condominium, homes, land, or estates. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, retiree looking to downsize, or a distressed homeowner facing a mortgage problem, the Butters Team has the breadth and depth of experience that will serve you well.
Our service area includes the Viginia Piedmont and consists of the counties of Culpeper, Fauquier, Madison, Rappahannock, Orange, and Greene. Mike's former life consisted of 20+ years of dedicated service to our great nation as a United States Marine Corps officer. He is a combat veteran and flew the A-4M Skyhawk and the AV-8B Harrier "Jump Jet". Stationed mainly at Cherry Point, NC, he enjoyed many "vacations"--courtesy of Uncle Sam--in places such as Kuwait (Desert Storm), Somalia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Kosovo. When he wasn't overseas, he was at home training and leading Marines, in addition to helping Ellen raise four wonderful children. Mike retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2003.
Mike brings a deep sense of service, integrity, and "mission accomplishment" to every real estate transaction. Once a Marine, Always a Marine, he continues to follow the Corps' motto "Semper Fidelis" (Always Faithful) and brings that same dedication to you, our client.
Mike's designations include Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) , and Short-Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR). His next goal is to attain his broker's license during 2014.
Mike & Ellen live in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Madison County, Virginia. They are proud parents of 4 children and 2 grandchildren, living in the peaceful setting of rural America and are blessed to call it their home.
