Rita was by far a fortunate choice on a Google search for agents when starting the process to sell my home in Redlands.<br/><br/>1. Always answered the phone when I called, or her staff answered my questions immediately. 2. She knew what she was talking about and went out of her way to meet me and accomplish the tasks. 3. When going to her office, it was clean, with a professional staff, (whom one young gentleman was prior military; thanks Rita for taking care of our veterans) I didn't havent to wait and was offered something to drink. 4. And the best of all, I really appreciated the follow through contacts to make sure everything was going smoothly and successfully, I was always informed. Thanks Rita, my next real estate venture will be through you! Very respectfully, Allen

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Redlands, CA.

The 5 star review is not an exaggeration. Of the many agents and contractors I had to work with to buy a home, Rita was by far my favorite. The first time I met her, she spent nearly an entire day showing us around every area of Redlands, and discussed in detail all the pros and cons of each area and house we looked at. Through the whole process of searching and buying, she kept us well informed, kept our best interests in mind and answered e-mails and phone calls within minutes or hours, instead of days or weeks like a lot of other agencies. When we finally found the home we bought, it was because Rita personally called me to say that it just showed up on the market and it had the specifications we were looking for. She is extremely hard-working, honest and responsive, and I give her my highest recommendation as a Real Estate Agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Highland, CA.

Rita was great! Looking at houses with her was very fun and helpful. Her contracting/construction experience brought a whole new perspective into the search for a house, and it was very helpful. She also has many wonderful contacts that she introduced us to along the way. We met so many quality people that we will be referring friends to as often as we can, with Rita being one of the most excellent. We looked for a long time to find a house, and made many offers. The market was very competitive in our price range. Through the whole process Rita was very patient with us and very helpful. Something that we will never forget was that Rita fought for us to get our house. We kept getting beat out by big investors, and she wrote a wonderful email emphasizing the importance of getting families into homes rather than just investors. Buying a house can be very stressful, but when surrounded by such great company it is actually a very pleasant experience!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Beaumont, CA.

There are no words to describe my experience with Rita. I have never meant anyone with more integrity & honesty . I could not have chosen a more competent, loving knowledgeable person to go through this process with . I never had to call her , she always kept me informed on what was going on & even came to my work for documents to be signed, she worked tirelessly for me & my family . As a first time homeowner, her expertise was so invaluable that it relieved so much stress for me . I know without a doubt I could not have endured this process without her. Not only is she my realtor but I am privileged to call her my friend

Bought a home in 2012 in Smiley Heights, Redlands, CA 92373.

Rita is the best!. We are first time home buyers and Rita led us through every step of the way, made us comfortable with the process, and helped us find the perfect new home! Rita is incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and can find the right house for anyone. She knows so much about house conditions and repairs that we were confident that we wouldn't get stuck with a "money pit". From the first time we met Rita it felt like we were working with a long time friend. I am 100% positive that Rita is the best broker/agent in the area, we were so lucky and grateful to have her on our team. Thank you so much Rita!

Silly side note-- with Rita's contractor skills and personality, she should be the star of a new HGTV show. And the title? It's there in her profile picture slogan: "Rita Can Do It!"

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Redlands, CA.

Rita helped us purchase the home of our dreams. She stuck by through thick and thin and was always there to keep our hopes high when we went through a difficult task. Rita answers he phone at all times of the day and never makes you feel uncomfortable to ask even the most basic questions. We have gotten to know Rita very well because it took us 8 long months to find the home of our dreams at just the right price. Her background as a contractor helps her to show the good and bad in a house, especially with all the cheaply finished flip homes. I would highly recommend Rita to anyone.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Mentone, CA.

The sale of my house went very smoothly and quickly from beginning to end. Rita's knowledge of the local market helped to price my home in the right price range so I would get top dollar. She also makes sure that your home receives maximum exposure in the real estate marketplace through the use of various internet sites. She also assisted me in finding a temporary rental during the interim of searching for another home. Rita is truly a professional and a pleasure to work with.

Rita can do it! Rita and her staff are extremely competent, knowledgable, honest and professional. We were truly impressed with the way she handled every "bump" along the way, with calm and confidence. Her experience is evident. We happened to find Rita while searching on Zillow and finding a home we were interested in, what a lucky find for us, both the house and Rita! The sale is final and we have moved in, but Rita is still helping us settle in with local references for services that we are finding are just as impressive as she is. We highly recommend Rita - you will not regret having her on your side.

Sold a Mobile / Manufactured home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Redlands, CA.

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".
