Ratings & Reviews

I found Shawnee on Zillow, and picked her due to her high rating. I was not disappointed! My husband and I were moving from Hampton Roads, VA, to Oregon, and we needed to sell our house in Portsmouth. Shawnee took care of EVERYTHING for us. That whole experience could have been unbearably stressful, but literally all we had to do was make the decisions, and she did the rest! In a market where the average was 90 days for a house to sell, we had an offer in two weeks. I seriously can't recommend her enough! She has excellent, very reasonably priced recommendations for painters, HVAC technicians, and various other necessary personnel for a move. She has a LOT of experience in the real estate field, and was incredibly (within a half hour) quick to respond to any questions we had. I am so glad we picked Shawnee, and am recommending her to all the people I know in Hampton Roads.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Portsmouth, VA.

I was a first time home buyer when I met Mrs. Fortes. She went above and beyond in finding the right home for my family and I. She was extremely patient and very knowledgeable during the entire home search, which we greatly appreciate. Mrs. Fortes took the time to thoroughly explain any questions or any concerns I had during the entire process. Throughout our home search, I feel as though my family and I were not only blessed to have found a Realtor that truly cared about our happiness and overall satisfaction but also gained a true friend in the process. Mrs. Fortes is a true professional who totally demonstrated her diligence for her clients throughout the long journey, which really meant a lot to us. I have and will continue to highly recommend Mrs. Fortes to my friends, family and associates in their home search or any concerns or questions they may have. Thank you so much for all that you have done and continue to do for my family.

Sold a home in 2013.

Before hiring Shawnee, I fired 4 realtors. I had a complex selling situation and I needed someone who had the knowledge to handle the situation. I found this in Shawnee. Shawnee was very professional and she went above and beyond for me to help me in my selling situation. I was very impressed. She was very patient and her negotiating skills were key in me selling my home. I highly recommend Shawnee for any real estate transaction you have.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Greenbrier West, Chesapeake, VA.

I purchased my first home in July 2012 and had a great time working with Lashawn. She was very knowledgeable and helped me out during the whole process. I would highly recommend Lashawn.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Portsmouth, VA.

I purchased my first home in January of 2013. This home also happened to be a forclosure. Shawnee is very knowledgable of the process from start to finish and she specializes in forclosures. She knew the areas I was looking in very well and was always able to give me recommendations based on my needs/wants. Her negotiation skills were great, as I got a great deal on my home. All in all, she is a great realtor, especially for a budget minded first time home buyer.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Suffolk, VA.

Shawnee is very knowledgeable and was able to quickly show homes in our price range even before they reached MLS listing. Couldn't have done the buying process without her!

Bought a home in 2013.

Shawnee Fortes is an awesome agent. I had a small budget and a crappy agent at first and just when I was about to give up and lose hope I ran into Shawnee. Just like that she made things happen and in a couple of weeks I became a home owner.

Sold a home in 2012.

If you or someone you know is buying or selling a home do yourself a favor and contact Shawnee first she is excellent to work with and makes the process smooth. We sold a home then purchased another with Shawnee and would without hesitation use her expertise again.

Sold a home in 2013.

Ms Fortes, always handled business in a very professional manner. I had no idea that I would get the price that I had offered. My house was the first Townhouse in that area to sell for $174,900. Others sold for considerable less. She sold my house in three weeks.Ms. Fortes was a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to others.
