"Shelly negotiated a very contentious sale with masterful poise. Not only was she able to find us the home we were looking for, but her communication was always prompt and friendly. For anything we sought she had multiple options and was always understanding and friendly. I cannot recommend Shelly enough for anyone looking to find a home."

  -William S., Client

"Shelly is excellent at her job. She makes great recommendations for various services like inspections, roofing experts, financing, etc. She keeps you very informed along the way and stays in close contact with you to make sure that nothing is overlooked or waiting for information. I like the fact she uses text messages and emails, allowing me to get back to her when time allows instead of a direct phone call. Very easy process. If I ever have the need to sell or buy again, Shelly will be my agent...period."

  -Jim P., Client

"Shelly was a steady hand in the chaotic process of trying to sell a home and her experience was obvious when first meeting her. I thought the compilation of pictures of our house and the advertisement of it on social media turned out great. She hosted several open houses that always produced interest. Shelly kept us informed of other comparable homes on the market, what they were listed for, what they were selling for, etc. Her efforts actually generated several offers until we ultimately closed with our buyer. I highly recommend Shelly if you're looking to sell/buy a home."

  -Joe S., Client

"Shelly helped us purchase a new home and then sold our home for us. She also assisted in the purchase and sale of two vacation homes. I have recommended Shelly multiple times and those clients have always thanked me for the referral as they were impressed with her services as well. Call Shelly, no one can do it better! "
