Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Orangevale, CA.

Shelly is a wonderful, knowledgeable real estate agent. She helped me recently purchased my home in the Sacramento area. When buying a home most of are overwhelmed and don’t pay too much to detail. Shelly would point out possible issues in home that buyers don’t realize. She would provide her honest opinion of the different properties I looked at during my search. Having Shelly as my agent during the house hunt process was wonderful. She really has the best interests of her buys and answered questions during the purchasing processes. If you need someone to help you find your next home talk to Shelly..

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Rancho Cordova, CA.

Shelly has handled real estate transactions for me in both selling and purchasing a house. She was very knowledgable and very effective with all aspects of the process for each. From suggestions on preparation for sale or purchase to details of inspections and declarations, to negotiating and coordinating with other agents, and to the final escrow process, I felt very confident and very fortunate at each step to have Shelly as my agent. I appreciated that she was very easy to communicate with and was also responsive to my issues and questions. I highly recommend Shelly for her services as a real estate professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Sacramento, CA.

When I was finally ready to buy my first house in 2013 I knew I was going to need a Realtor that I could trust. I needed someone with integrity, patience, knowledge and someone that would help guide me in making decisions that were always in my best interest. Shelly was all of these things for me and more. There were limited houses on the market that fit my criteria and after losing 4 houses to cash buyers I entertained settling for less just to get into a house. Shelly knew I would regret that compromise and worked with me non-stop until we found the perfect house. On September of 2013 I closed on my house and couldn't be happier. Shelly's professionalism, experience and familiarity with the Sacramento area make her a Realtor that I would highly recommend to anyone!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Aspen, Davis, CA.

Shelly had an extensive knowledge of all the surrounding areas of Sacramento. She took the time to learn what we were looking for, LISTENED, and came back with prospective properties that were aligned with our needs and desires. She was extremely patient and took the time to point out advantages, disadvantages, highlights and negatives of each. She was nothing short of fabulous to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone buying a home!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in Citrus Heights, CA.

Shelly is very dedicated to her craft. She wanted me to not only look at houses but to really learn the area with her so that I could make better long term decisions. We changed the type of housing we were going to buy part way through and she had to start over. Shelly handled that and other of our decisions that she might have disagreed with with grace giving us her knowledgeable input without being pushy. She has lots of experience and knowledge and when we came to something that she had not experienced before she enthusiastically went after answers spending extra time going the the county etc. Shelly is also very determined and if one thing doesn't work she will find a strategy that will. I can not say enough about how positive the experience was with Shelly. She knows what she is doing.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Sacramento, CA.

When my husband and I decided to start house hunting, we really didn't know where to begin. Shelly was recommended by a friend who thought she would be a good match for us and she was right! Shelly was always available during the entire process and knew so much about the neighborhoods. She is very honest and reliable and keeps you constantly updated. She pretty much 'holds your hand' the entire time and won't let go until you're ready, which is great when your're a first time homebuyer or have a million questions like I did. I will recommend Shelly to anyone who needs a realtor, whether it's to sell or buy.

Shelly was a tremendous help short selling a home in Sacramento. She understood the market, lenders, and took the time to explain the process to me. It was a successful transaction.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in North Highlands, CA.

Purchasing our first home was extremely stressful for us! We were dealing with a terrible agent who didn't have our best interest at heart. He was difficult to get a hold of and was always late with paperwork. Because of those delays we missed out on 3 houses. I was ready to give up. I thought maybe it just wasn't our time to buy a house. My husband thought we should find another agent. I threw my hands up and told him to find one himself 'cause I didn't want to go through it again. Well he found Shelly. He told her about a house we were interested in and we met her that same day to put in our offer. I was impressed at the quick response, with the other agent this would've been a two day process. From day one Shelly was always on top of everything! She is quick to respond via text message, email and phone. We never had to wonder what was going on. She always kept us informed. If she knew, we knew. Shelly was our Champion in the home buying process. Whether it was dealing with the listing agent or the loan officer she was there for us. Shelly is very personable, hard working, thorough, down to earth and extremely knowledgeable and resourceful! We truly feel blessed that we were able to have Shelly as our agent. Even after the sale the was done she was there for us. Words cannot explain how much Shelly did for us and how comfortable and confident we felt having her in our corner. She even showed us houses when she should've been recovering from surgery!!! Now that's dedication! I look forward to the day we can work with Shelly again. If you are looking for an agent who is professional, responsive, motivated, down to earth, personable, a master expert in real estate negotiations, resourceful, dedicated, communicative, and funny, then Shelly's your gal!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $275K in Rancho Cordova, CA.

Shelly did a great job with my short-sale. The listing was quick and price was competitive. First offer was within days and they offered $10,000 over asking. Credit Union was very difficult to deal with but Shelly and her negotiator managed to convince them to go through with it. Very satisfied.
