Ratings & Reviews

I highly recommend using Shirley for buying or selling a home. She was our agent and found us our dream home. The home buying process today can be very tedious and complicated but Shirley made the process much easier and walked us through every step. She was very thorough and was looking out for our best interest. Her years of experience definitely helped in the process. On the day of closing, there was a mix up and we were going to have no water but Shirley called the city and was relentless to have the city turn back on our water and she was successful. Shirley is professional, an expert in her field and has a upbeat, friendly personality and is a joy to work with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Mount Dora, FL.

Shirley was incredibly helpful throughout our purchasing process. As out of town buyers, we relied on Shirley to do quite a bit of leg work at her end, and it all went smoothly. I would have no qualms about recommending her to anyone searching for property in the greater Orlando area.

Shirley was a pleasure to work with. She really listened to what exactly we were looking for and new the surrounding areas. She was honest, and from the beginning she wanted to find us that perfect home - and she did! I would recommend Shirley to anyone looking for (or selling) a home in central Florida - she was recommended to us by a good friend and we are very thankful.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Maitland, FL.

Shirley spent about 8 months working with us to find our first home. We never felt like she was too busy, even though we knew how much she had to do. It was wonderful that she always worked around our schedule. It felt like she truly wanted us to find the best house for us. She never tried persuading us into buying a home that we were not 100% certain about, even if that meant it would take a long time to find it. She really listened to what we wanted and were looking for in a house, and made sure to find those things. She never encouraged us to "settle" or give up, even after many offers and contracts had fallen through. When we FINALLY found "thee house", we discovered that it was listed For Sale By Owner, which meant Shirley would not recieve the amount, for her time and work, that she normally would. (I believe it was under half of what it should have been) But even so, Shirley told us that she KNEW this was the house for us! She did all of the necessary work involved, even though she wasn't even compensated for it. We are so grateful for that. Over the 8 months we worked with Shirley, it felt like we gained a friend AND a realtor! We will recommend her to anyone we know that needs help buying or selling a home!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Maitland, FL.

We were so lucky to have worked with Shirley in searching for and ultimately buying our family's first home. Being new to the area, we didn't have any realtor references, but immediately felt comfortable from the first time we met with Shirley. What I admired most about her, is that she always gave her honest opinion and had your best interest in mind. This was especially invaluable to us since it was our first time buying a home. Everything from our initial search up until closing on our new home ran very smoothly and stress free. I recommend Shirley to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Orlando area, she is the best!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Oviedo, FL.

SHIRLEY HAS A PASSION FOR HER JOB AND AN EVEN BIGGER ONE FOR HER CLIENTS. I MET SHIRLEY BECAUSE SHE WAS MY BUYERS' AGENT. SHE WILL GO ABOVE AND BEYOND WHEN NEEDED FOR HER CLIENTS. I WAS SOLD AND ASKED HER TO REPRESENT ME IN MY PURCHASE. WHEN LOOKING TO PURCHASE MY HOME I WAS OFTEN UP AGAINST SEVERAL BIDS. SHE WOULD REACH OUT TO THE SELLER/LIST AGENT TO DO WHAT SHE CAN TO CLOSE THE DEAL FOR A CLIENT AND WORK EVEN HARDER WHEN SHE KNEW THE HOUSE WAS THE RIGHT FIT. A YEAR A GO SHE HELPED CLOSE THE DEAL ON MY NEW HOME! WITH OUT HER HELP, PROFESSIONALISM AND COMMITMENT, I WOULD NOT BE WHERE I AM. LOVIN' MY NEW DIGS AND NEIGHBORHOOD. WHETHER YOU'RE BUYING OR SELLING, I WOULN'T HESITATE FOR A SECOND TO GIVE SHIRLEY WELCH A SHOUT OUT TO SOMEONE NEEDING A REALTOR!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Belle Isle, FL.

We don't have enough good things to say about Shirley. She already came highly recommended to us by a lender. We started working with her in 2007, and we bought our house in 2012 - literally 5 years later. She always kept in contact with us, showed us almost any house we threw at her (including some we shouldn't have wasted her time with), and when it came time to make offers and negotiate a buy, she knew the process inside and out. After all of that, she was even willing to help us go through the laborious process of buying a short sale home, which we did, and couldn't be happier in our home today. She is also a great consultant about the property industry in general, and will provide very sound advice.

To be quite honest, we would definitely contact her again if we decided to buy in the Central Florida area again (or any other area she works in for that matter).

I'd also like to point out that we even used Zillow at that time (very early on for them) as a way to discover houses in our desired range and location, and then Shirley would look up even more specifics and show us the house if still available.

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 in Winter Springs, FL.

We have used Shirley several times (to represent us both as a seller and as a buyer) and can’t speak highly enough about her! She helped us buy our first family home. Shirley was extremely patient with us as we were nervous to make the big jump into home ownership. She made our experience as first time home buyers wonderful and helped us through every stage of the process. Then, when our family grew and it was time to relocate, we called upon Shirley again to help us sell our home and to help us find our “forever home.” In a low inventory market and with a long wish list of what we wanted in our new home, Shirley went above and beyond to ensure we found the home that would be perfect for our growing family. Shirley is a fantastic realtor and we recommend her to family and friends at every opportunity.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $200K in Winter Park, FL.

I was referred to Shirley from friends that had a great experience with her and I have to say, they weren't wrong. Shirley's knowledge of local areas and neighborhoods, and their values was a great help to me in my first home buying process. She adapted to my needs to find the right home for me and tirelessly found options that met and exceeded my expectations. Right to the day of closing, Shirley was an advocate and helpful resource right up to the day of closing and even after five years of ownership. I still contact her for answers to my home related questions.

Anyone looking for a home in Orlando and the surrounding areas should contact Shirley, truly one of central Florida's best agents.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in College Park, Orlando, FL.

We met Shirley through one of her open houses. We are generally very wary of meeting Realtors that haven't been directly referred to me. However, Shirley made us feel instantly comfortable. Even though she was the listing agent on this house she was not pushy and very matter of fact. We told her we had just started our house search and mentioned we weren't interested in the house we had just finished. She said she could help and gave us a card. She only followed up once to see if we were still searching, and wasn't pushy or overbearing. WE gave her our criteria and even sent her a list of homes we'd found on Zillow. She immediately knew the area of each houses. Her knowledge kept us from looking at houses in areas that we ended up not liking. (Caveat: we still drove by two of the houses she recommend we not. She was absolutely correct.) She worked hard for us for two months sending potential properties and scheduling walk through on our time. She often would take the things we said and would refine her search for us. We found a house we loved in College Park and closed on 3/24. The negotiation and closing process were are breeze because of her. She helped throughout the process and as a result we got a great deal, in a great area.

Thank you Shirley. Buying this house was so much better than my first home purchase.
