Bought a home in 2012 in Devonshire, San Carlos, CA 94070.

Shelly Potvin is an absolute SUPERSTAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had been through a few other realtors with at best no results and at worst absolute nightmares. Then a friend suggested Shelly. Night and day. Suddenly I felt understood and respected. Shelly even figured out that what I said I wanted to buy wasn't necessarily what I really did want. Anyway, Shelly was top notch in terms of her ability to figure out what I wanted, to find it, and then, most amazingly of all, to enable me to get it in a situation with MANY offers in which I was outbid. With her guidance, I was able to get the home of my dreams. She was top notch in her expertise and professionalism while being a lot of fun to work with. I cannot recommend Shelly more strongly.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Mountain View, CA.

Shelly was very helpful to my husband and I as we looked for our first home together in Mountain View, CA. She showed us homes in the school districts we requested and ones with children so out children would have friends the same age. She was very knowledgeable of the area and was able to answer all our questions. She walked us through the closing process. She was available by phone and email no matter what the day/ time to answer all questions that we had. We could not have made it through the process of purchasing our home without her.

Bought a home in 2013 in South Shore Port, CA 94089.

We were introduced to Shelly by our daughter and son-in-law who have purchased 2 houses with Shelly's help in the past. We were very pleased with the experience she provided us as new home buyers in California.

Shelly's advice and knowledge about the real estate market enabled us to make a more open-minded decision as to what would be best for our needs, and her communication throughout the process made us feel very comfortable. We appreciated her efforts in dealing with some difficult negotiating issues, and she did so with great efficiency and professionalism.

All in all, the process left us with a very positive feeling and we would refer friends or family to Shelly for any future home buying needs.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Mountain View, CA.

Shelly Potvin went all out for us. She was able to meet with us immediately and incorporated all our preferences into a search for our condo. She is extra knowledgeable about the area, having lived here much of her life. Her experience in strategizing the game of offers saved us time and energy, and the personal letter she guided us write to the seller helped get our first choice. Perhaps most importantly, she and her husband, Michael Sutton, are very connected in local real estate networks, which ultimately was crucial in our being the winning bid with twelve offers. We were pleasantly surprised at the in-depth techniques and strategies they used to help us buy our new home even though we were not the highest priced offer. She is truly a professional in a sea of many.

Sold a Condo home in 1999 for approximately $400K in Ortega, Sunnyvale, CA.

I strongly recommend Shelly Potvin. She has represented me when I sold my townhome and when I purchased my home in Sunnyvale. She is attentive, knowledgable, provides solid advice and was always there for me. When I sold my townhome, she handled everything from inspections, staging advice, gorilla marketing and I greatly benefited from her advice. When we were looking for my forever home, we saw many homes. She was never pushy and gave an honest assessment of each home. She continues to be a resource for trades people, etc. You need a well-known and well-respected agent while competing in this white hot real estate market...I recommend her to everyone I know!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.25M in Mountain View, CA.

I would completely and totally recommend Shelly Potvin to anyone who wants a succesful transaction.

In the terribly sad and unfortunate situation of my Mom passing, Shelly literally took me by the hand and was with me every step of the way. My family home had been with us for over 40 years. It was well kept but terribly dated. Being sensitive to my feelings, Shelly made excellent suggestions to update and rejuvenate the property. Knowing that my funds were limited, she found creative ways to make the house sparkle. She also kept me updated to the process as frequently as needed. Several times I called after hours expecting to leave a message and Shelly answered the phone, always willing to assure me and answer questions.

Pricing and timing were going to be tricky. Shelly offered several suggestions and had a few difficult discussions with me. I went with her suggestion because of her expertise. Shelly also got handymen and workers to expedite the renovation because she was savvy enough to know that we would be the only property available in that area. She coordinated all the workers, making sure everyone was working together and on course.

The end result was astounding. The house looked gorgeous; people were coming by in droves and Shelly held back-to-back open houses and even had a reception for the neighbors.

I was hoping for a certain price but the offers were better than what I was even expecting. I was in tears knowing that my Mother would have been so pleased. The entire process took approx. 3 months and during the holidays!!!!!

Shelly's market savvy gave me the confidence to make difficult decisions and end up with an amazing close. I will always be grateful to her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.675M in Los Altos, CA.

Shelly is an excellent realtor who helped us find our home in the Bay Area. She knows the market very well, has high integrity and is great to work with. Shelly will spend the time really to really understand your needs and be a great guide and sounding board throughout the process. She has a lot of patience and always acts in the best interests of her clients. I have recommended Shelly to all my friends and work associates. She is simply the best realtor we've used.

Bought a home in 2012 in Castro City, Mountain View, CA 94040.

Shelly is great. She is always on top of what she does. She is very knowledgeable, responsive and helpful. I moved to the California south bay area from another state a few months ago. I was unfamiliar with the real estate market in this area. Shelly helped me a great deal at every step during the process. It was (still is, I believe) a tough market for buyers. My three prior offers were rejected. Shelly was very patient. With her as my agent, I finally had a successful offer for a property that works well for me and my family. I recommend Shelly without any reservations.

Bought a home in 2007 in Mountain View, CA 94041.

We met Shelly while walking through a house she was showing one Saturday in 2002. The next day we viewed a house we loved. The problem was it was a Sunday, we did not have a real estate agent, we had not been pre-approved (we really were not intending to buy a house yet), and they were taking bids that Tue night and making a decision by Wed. We had liked Shelly so much the day before when we met her, that we gave her a call. She blew us away with the action she took in the next 24 hours. She had us talking to a mortgage broker on a SUNDAY (we have used that person 3 times now), we were pre-approved by end of day Mon in time to work with Shelly on a bid which was handed in Tue, and we soon owned our first home. We basically did the same thing when we upgraded to our second home and Shelly performed the same. We not only use her as our agent, but we also have used numerous recommendations from her for things like a flooring expert, and like her mortgage consultant recommendation, she is always spot on. If someone she recommends does not return a call within like 24 hours, she is totally on it and we get an immediate response. Even when she is only making a recommendation she stays involved until she knows that we are satisfied customers. Obviously we do not buy or sell homes that often, but whenever we do, we will use Shelly. And we will reap the benefits of all her other great advice when we are not buying and selling.
