Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Harker Heights, TX.
the Shine Team is extremely knowledgeable of the housing in the area. They listened to our housing needs, and found great options for us to look at that fit our needs and wants. They were very flexible and willing to work around our schedule. The Shine Team was easy to work with and made moving to the area easy and less stressful. They made us feel like we were a part of their team.

I called the Shine teams office as soon as my wife and I decided to sell the house and spoke with Desiree. She explained the process that we would go thru and sent an email as followup to make sure we knew the steps. Then Jean Shine came to the house and gave us tips and steps to follow to stage the house. Once we had done pretty much all that she suggested, she came by again to followup and fine tuned the house so that it was exactly as she wanted it too look. Once this was done a formal listing of the house was done and we began to have hits on the real estate listing website and offers came in. When we finally had a firm offer, which was only weeks after the listing was actually made, we went thru a negotiating process in which Rodney Shine and Lori were our intermediaries, and we finally came to an agreed price. The whole process flowed so smoothly and it was because of the fine tuned process that the Shine team has perfected and executed so perfectly. Our house sold within a very brief period of time, a little over 4 weeks, once it had been listed, and it was all because the excellent performance of all members of the Shine team. Linda and I couldn't be more satisfied or happy than we are. They are just the best at what they do.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Killeen, TX.
Our experience with Shine Team has been outstanding. Our Super Agent Carol helped find a home even though we were 1200 miles away. She was very helpful, knowledgeable, understanding and very good at her job, She helped us to navigate through all the hoops and obstacles since we haven't bought another home in 46 years.
There should be more agents like her, thanks Carol.

My experience with the Shine Team was based on selling my home in Salado, TX. "Team" is not a term they take lightly. Unlike some more traditional real estate firms where the agents tend to be a "mile wide and inch deep", the Shine Team has a stable of experts that thoroughly guide you through selling your home, and keep you informed and engaged throughout the process. As a retired Army officer, I thoroughly embrace the "plan - prepare- execute" model, and that is what the Shine Team delivered, resulting in a successful experience.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Belton, TX.
My husband and I were relocating to the Temple-Belton area from the East Coast and found Scott Shine through Dave Ramsay's ELP directory. From our first interaction with him we were impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, energy and responsiveness. We interviewed and reviewed numerous local agents but every conversation we had with Scott just made us want to choose him. After three phone interviews and checking his references we went with him. We are SO glad we did!
We have now been living in our new home for two months and are incredibly happy. We had just one week to come down to an area we didn't know at all and find a house. The pre-trip work that Scott and his team put in was impressive--he listened to what we needed/wanted in a home and he and Carol (another Shine agent) put together lists of properties that matched our relatively specific criteria). When we arrived and started looking at homes, after one day we totally changed our mind about the home we wanted (we were initially looking for smaller homes and realized after walking through the homes with our growing family we needed a bigger one).
We ended up putting an offer in on three different homes during the week we were there--the first offer we made site unseen before arriving--Scott scouted it for us and his assessments on the property were right on--his team recommended we get the pool inspected first as that was his major concerns and the inspection revealed thousands of dollars worth d work. So within 24 hours of arriving we pulled out of that offer (Scott has negotiated a long option period so we lost only the $50 option fee!). Then we made a second offer, got into a bidding war and Scott advised us exactly correctly throughout--we lost the war but thanks to Scott we didn't get stuck paying over market value for the house. At this point we had been in town for four days and still no home.
Once again Scott and Carol got back to the drawing board using everything they'd learned about us and came up with another set of listings. Our home was on that list. We made an offer which was accepted--Scott helped us offer appropriately for market value and the seller paid all our closing costs! The house actually approached above the offer so Scott was right on!
After the offer was accepted Shine's closing team did an outstanding job making sure all the contractual repairs were completed. There was an error with the closing that they fixed and helped me close long distance with only that minor hitch (a mistake the Shine Team caught!). Their support didn't end after closing. We have now been in the home for 2 months and couldn't be happier! Choosing the right neighborhood was really important but difficult to do from out-of-state, Scott knew what we wanted and found a neighborhood that was in a different area than I originally wanted but we have found this neighborhood to be even BEtTER then my initial idea. That is thanks to Scott and his team. Carol was amazing too. The closing team and Lori were outstanding.
We cannot recommend them highly enough. If you are trying to do a long distance move you really can't do any better!!!!
Paula Raymond was our realtor and she was WONDERFUL! She was amazing at helping us and answering all of our questions and concerns. We will definitely recommend her to our friends and family. She was wonderful in every aspect listed above!
We have used the Shine Team for our last two home purchases, a land purchase and are currently under contract to sell our last home also. So needless to say, we are quite familiar with all aspects of what they offer and can do for the purchaser and seller. They are the most professional and dedicated-to-service real estate company we have ever worked with. Jean and Bill Shine have built an excellent environment for helping the most novice of home buyers to the most seasoned. No matter how many times you've been through the process, there are always questions to be answered and some need for guidance throughout. They are wonderful at this. Always ready to answer a call, an email or even stop what they are doing and greet you with a smile. I have always and will continue to recommend the Shine Team to any and everyone who is ready to purchase or sell a home.
