Loretta Taylor

Loretta Taylor - General Manager

Loretta Taylor started with J. Ellis Apartment Locators in 2001 as an assistant to Rick Ellis in the running of his locator company as well as his Property Management portfolio and his consulting projects. She has been a very important and integral part of Rick’s success, as well as in the continual growth and prosperities of his companies. Loretta is now responsible for the day-to-day operations of four thriving locator offices, a huge selection of single family and multi family dwellings, and puts together countless leasing seminars and market analysis surveys nationwide for Mr. Ellis.

Some of Loretta’s other numerous responsibilities include Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Public Relations and Payroll for all of the Ellis Companies. Although her time is more limited these days, Loretta’s first priority still lays with Rick and his marketing, consulting, training, and contract leasing company as well as the Property Management Company. If you want to know “Where in the world is Rick?”, contact Loretta and she will fill you in!   Visit our website at www.ellisconsulting.com for an updated schedule of ELLIS events.

Loretta is happily married and is not only a mom, but a very cool Grandma as well. Loretta is a major NASCAR follower and her favorite driver is 88, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Those 22 days a year Loretta spends at the track are the best NASCAR has to offer. If you are ever at Texas Motor Speedway in April or November, stop by and say hi and stay for dinner. You are always welcome.

She started out as a leasing agent onsite and worked her way up to assistant manager of a luxury property in the Dallas area. Cinner chose the career of an Apartment Locator in 1980 when apartment locators were a new breed of real estate people on the Dallas Ft. Worth horizon. She has been there, done that and is so excited in this new venture of how she can help the Internet become the future of J. Ellis.

Cinner is in charge of the Internet Division, which consists of a team of locators whose main objective is to take Internet leads and put them into apartments.
