Rita Shaw makes selling your home a breeze. Beware of discount agents out there - they usually just list it in the MLS - that's it. In todays market it takes someone who can entice in buyers with marketing tools - videos, wonderful pictures, a little bit of staging - knows the market in your area and chat up potential buyers. This all does wonders to get your home sold in a month or less. Mine took 3 weeks. Rita Shaw has a 'team' who zip in, make the place look marvelous and get it sold. Her Rosie the Riveter like signs say it all "Rita Can Do It".

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $525K in Redlands, CA.

We don't usually write reviews, but Rita Shaw is an exception for us. We started out home shopping with another agent, but quickly grew tired of her pushing for a fast sell, particularly with one of own listed homes and also particularly for only the higher priced listings. Then we encountered Rita at an Open House for which she was the listing agent. We found her very refreshing. Of the numerous agents that we had dealt with, she was the most open, honest, knowledgeable and friendly. She not only knew the Redlands area better than anyone else we had met, but she actually knew the history of almost every home we had looked at, including previous owners, house condition and repairs, etc. It was obvious that her wealth of information was not drawn from the internet: She had actual personal experience with either previously listing/showing, touring, or assisting in the purchase of most of these homes (she has been in the real estate business for several decades). Additionally, being a licensed contractor, she knew what to look for in the way of necessary repairs/upgrades for the homes we looked at and the approximate cost to undertake such repairs/upgrades. She even recommended (at our request) ways to repair/upgrade homes. Her negotiation skills were masterful and she helped us with every step of the otherwise tedious purchasing process. We could not imagine having to navigate such a major undertaking as finding and purchasing a new home without her. She was always available to assist us in any way. Thank you Rita! Ken and Jackie A.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Redlands, CA.

We felt very fortunate to have someone as experienced and efficient as Rita to take us through every step of the buying process, especially since we had to make a trip outside the US in the midst of such process.She was always available and ready to help resolve any doubts or questions that we had. Her way of conducting business was highly professional but reassuring at the same time.

We do live in a small world.These buyers met me after reading Zillow reviews while visiting from Italy.. Turns out that their daughter and I have long time mutual friends.

Rita brings a lot to the table with knowledge of the Inland Empire, giving ideas for furnishings, upgrades, and contractors. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and giving you that personal touch....

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $525K in Yucaipa, CA.

Rita helped my family and I find a perfect home in the Yucaipa area for our growing household. Her local expertise, and years of experience with the negotiation process made my wife and I feel comfortable throughout the entire transaction. Her responsiveness to questions and concerns was lighting fast, and we would highly recommend Rita for anyone looking to purchase or sell their home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Redlands, CA.

This is our second time working with Rita (the first time, we bought a house, and we just sold our house through her, also). She is incredibly knowledgeable and is consistently called the most ethical realtor in the area by the companies we worked with while buying and selling (contractors, sewage inspectors, electricians, lenders, and termite inspectors). We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

So sad to see this family leave our town but they are moving to a wonderful new community and have a great real estate broker who already found them a new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Calimesa, CA.

Rita has the ability, experience and connections to make things happen in a timely manner. She represented me in the purchase of a home which closed on 4-24-15. She sent daily updates on homes coming on the market in my area. We often saw a home on the day I asked to see it, and we saw many houses. Her insights were very helpful in assessing what a home might require in work and added expenses. I enjoyed getting to know Rita and respect her as an honest, hardworking and successful business woman. She likes her work. She obviously enjoys her business.

Rita is a wonderful person and an amazing relator. She helped us buy our first home in Redlands. We came into the process with very little knowledge of how to buy a home. Rita was very patient with us and helped us learn about how everything works. She listened to our wish list of what we were looking for in a home, and emailed us immediately when a house that fit our desired specifications became available. In fact, the home that we ended up purchasing was one that she found and brought to our attention. She was available at any time of day to answer questions, and made time to take us to see any and all houses we asked to see... even if she already knew that the home wasn't a good fit for us. She handled the negotiation process very well, and we managed to buy at a price that worked for us. During the escrow process, she continued to be very involved and helped move the process along by putting pressure on the various parties. We are very grateful to Rita Shaw, and recommend her to everyone!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Redlands, CA.

We were nervous to put our house on the market. Rita calmly and professionally carried us through the entire process. She always responded to our e-mails, phone calls and texts with-in a timely manner. The sale of our home was as quick and as smooth as we could have possibly hoped for. I'm so grateful we found and chose to work with Rita. Because of our positive experience we are also using her as our buying agent. A HUGE thanks to Rita!!

Their home was so beautiful inside and a pleasure to show. Even with four little children in the house, it showed like a model home every time!

Bought a home in 2015.

Rita Shaw is the most amazing realtor I have ever worked with, and I have worked with many! There has never been a question she couldn't answer or a situation she couldn't resolve. I consider my self a difficult and picky client because I know EXACTLY what I want! Rita has been very sympathetic, kind and patient to my needs as a client! There may be other relators who are just as good as Rita but I know there is no one better!!!!!
