My wife and I moved to the Columbus area from out of state and were not sure who to look for as a relator in the Columbus area. After reading some reviews on Zillow about Shanna and visiting her website we decided to give her a call and we couldn't have asked for anything more. <br/><br/>She promptly returned our first call and we were able to discuss what we were looking for in a house, My wife and I had a very specific set of requirements of what we wanted in a house and Shanna was able to put together a search that returned those results. My wife and I were not wasting time looking at homes that didn't meet those requirements.<br/><br/>She was very knowledgeable about the area, was always very friendly and professional and she was able to help us find the house that we were looking for. She was a huge help from the beginning of the process all the way to the end.<br/><br/>We would highly recommend Shanna to anyone looking for a house!!

Sold a home in 2012 in Mudsock, OH 43026.

Shanna helped us sell our house in Hilliard, OH. She was very knowledgeable about the different areas of Hilliard and knew right away the price our house needed to be listed at. She's very up front and will tell you exactly what you need to do to get your house sold.

She was constantly in contact with us letting us know the feedback she was getting on the house. Once we got an offer in, she moved quickly and efficiently to make the process run as smoothly as possible.

Shanna conducts a lot of work online so there's no waiting around for papers to be signed and sent over. This is super convenient when dealing with offers and working negotiations!

I would highly recommend Shanna if you are selling your house because she will get the job done. If you're looking for a home to buy, she's very knowledgeable about neighborhoods and the housing market. She'll be a great resource for you!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Northgate, Columbus, OH.

Since this was my first home purchase, Shanna was very good at keeping my "house dreams" in a "reality" mode and was extremely helpful in ensuring that my rights were protected when she drew up the contract. She was also very knowledgeable in pointing me in the right direction for obtaining a mortgage loan (i.e., the little guy verses the big banks). She would be a good realtor especially for first time home buyers.

Bought a home in 2011 in Eastmoor, Bexley, OH 43209.

As a first time home buyer, I thought working with Shanna was an absolute breeze. She was extremely helpful in explaining every process, step, and negotiation while I was buying my house. She made an effort to be available at all times, even on weekends, and answered all of my (many) questions. I would recommend her realtor services to anyone looking to buy a home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Glenmeadows, Reynoldsburg, OH.

As first time home buyers my wife and I really researched who we wanted to use as our real estate agent and we could not be happier with the work Shanna provided us. She was responsive despite our millions of questions and first time buyer paranoia. Her knowledge was extensive and we felt that she did an excellent job with our negotiations. We would not hesitate to recommend Shanna to anyone else looking to buy a home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $300K in Lewis Center, OH.

Shanna did a great job for us. She helped us find the home we wanted and worked with us right through closing. She really knows the market and we were very glad she was our agent

Sold a home in 2003 in Summit View Woods, Shawnee Hills, OH 43065.

Shanna helped me buy my current house. Although I expected good service based on previous recommendations I heard about her, I was positively impressed with her work ethics. She made me feel like the only client she had and was available to answer my questions 7 days a week with no hesitation. She welcomed all my questions and walked me through the process while protecting my interest. I never felt pressured to make a decision and her advise helped avoid some pitfalls of which I was not aware.

Bought a home in 2011 in Mount Air, OH 43235.

Buying a home is a huge financial decision and when I started my search for a home I was very scared. I learned so much from Shanna during my condo search and became very comfortable with my decision by the time I went into contract. She is warm, professional, always on time and her knowledge of the housing market and the various communities is outstanding. She got me the best deal on my condo!

As a first time homebuyer I had a lot of questions. Although Shanna is busy she always finds the time to answer my many questions. One of the many reasons I feel lucky to have Shanna as my realtor is that she continues to help me even after closing, after moving into my condo. She is still my number one resource person for any service needs, things to improve the efficiency of my home or any general question I may have.

My home buying experience turned out to be a very educational and enjoyable one and I would highly recommend Shanna. Whatever your home-buying needs are, she will be able to find you a great home for the best price!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Delaware, OH.

I know you had a commission at stake here, and that's a reasonable incentive to take care of us in itself, but, especially with the number of listings you cover, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you explicitly for your work with us so far. Particularly versus the Realtor we last worked with, it's been a pleasure to maintain and go into contract with our listing having prompt responses, appropriate levels of communication, no documentation errors, no photographic challenges, and no personal crises. Our documentation always arrived at its destination promptly, and we never had to worry otherwise.

Amidst this mess of a housing market, especially as slow as it's been in Delaware county, it was great to finally be in contract and sell our property so we can move on with our lives in our new home. I firmly believe we wouldn't yet be able to do so if we had not worked with you. Just recently, I heard on the radio that the foreclosure rate had slowed due to the "robo-signing" issue and is slated to be back in full swing later this year, which makes our current situation even more enviable. I can't imagine a realistic better outcome other than if we had begun working with you even sooner.
