My adopted grandmother in Λυγουριό (in the Argolid) says «ἔλα ντέ» to express emphatic agreement.  A friend of mine from Thessalonica, when I used it similarly, said that I was misusing it, but a Μοραΐτισσα friend of mine said that that was correct, but limited to the Peloponnese.

Nation-wide; as long as it's said with a proper intonation, as with all informal phrases.
Think of me saying "I see" (I understand), I run the risk of getting a response "What do you see?"
