Meet the Team

Granite Creek Realty was established in June of 2014. After working for some large real estate companies, we felt there was a lack of personal service and clients seem to get lost in the shuffle of big business. Granite Creek Realty is comprised of the areas most dedicated Realtors that feel there is something special about working directly with each client one on one. When you choose to work with one of Granite Creek Realty's agents, your needs and wants will be given the utmost attention. This will ensure a great experience when buying or selling your home.

Kimberly Ellis

CA BRE # 01251922

Kimberly has been licensed since 1999!  I worked my first 10 years with some of the largest homebuilders (KB Home & Standard Pacific Homes) and the last 6 years in the resale market with fluctuations, corrections and bubbles that has offered many opportunities for her buyers and sellers.  I enjoy working closely with clients to understand their true needs as well as strategically negotiating keeping their best interests in mind.  I specialize in residential as well as horse properties in the El Dorado, Sacramento and Placer counties.  Personally...my family consists of 2 little girls (Ryan & Taylor), husband Patrick, 3 dogs (Darby, Josie and Bella), 3 horses (Roxy, Sonja and Nadia) and 3 mini pigs! Phew!  We love to spend time together on our horse property, with family and friends as well as in Tahoe as often as time permits.

Alden Turold

Hardworking, determined, focused and driven are just a few words that make up who Alden is personally and professionally.  Born in the Greater Sacramento region, Alden is a 32 year native to the area. Spending the first 18 years growing up on a small farm where he raised livestock in 4-H was his initial exposure to business and the value of a hard days work.  Currently living in the Lincoln area with his wife and 3 children, he has spent the last few years learning and investing in the local real estate market. Pulling from his past investing experiences, Alden has made it his primary focus to delivering the most professional service, ethical care and pressure free-hands off buying experience when working with him.  Additionally, he feels the key to a great professional life is having an well balanced personal life.  Between working on being the best husband and father he can, Alden returned back to school and enrolled at Brandman University where he took online courses and earned his Bachelors in Criminal Justice. 


Zalone Mier

Lic. #01971164

I guess I'll start out by briefly explaining the number one thing almost everyone asks me about when first meeting me....."How do you say your name and where did it originate from?" Well, it's pronounced like a Hair "Salon" with a "Z" like "Zalon". See, easy! Although I don't have much of a grand story to tell about the origination, my dad named me and he simply wanted to come up with something different and unique. Well, that he did! Creating a user name on the internet has been pretty easy for me over the years. 
Whether you're a first-time homebuyer, a current home owner or a professional real estate investor who is thinking about selling or buying and care about working with a professional who demonstrates genuine concern, listens to your needs, and can help guide you with decisions to make the complexities of real estate seamless, please call me. As a full-time, dedicated REALTOR® I'm privileged to work with so many new clients and become friends with so many of them. My passion for Real Estate and working with people comes from a long, successful career in Human Resources and in Social Services. I’m happy to help you and I’m just a phone call away.
