What people are saying about Shellie

Shellie understands…

“She understands more than just real estate. She understands the potential conflict between buyers and sellers and worked hard to mitigate any potential disputes that can creep into any transactions. She and her crew made practical recommendations for preparing the house and she staged it appropriately. She brought maturity to the transaction that the buyer’s broker lacked. Shellie did a great job mediating that resulted in a very positive resolution. She has a good working relationship with the other area brokers. This allowed her to cut through the big egos of other Realtors. Shellie had a low key personality  generally, but could put it into overdrive when she needed to represent our interests.”

Jonathan Vines

Needed someone we could rely on…

When my parents passed away, I needed someone in the Orinda area we could rely on to do a lot of the legwork associated with selling their house. We interviewed several Realtors in the area and ultimately selected Shellie. She was the perfect agent for us. Shellie was very “hands on” and gave us great advice on what needed to be done to improve marketability and was very realistic when it came to setting our asking price. She was also instrumental in hiring competent and reliable contractors and inspectors to help get the property ready for sale. Her hard work resulted in “multiple offers” on the house in a very short period of time. She clearly knows her market extremely well. She kept us informed every step of the way. “I would definitely recommend Shellie.”

Peter Norman

Professionalism and Personality…

“We knew that when we first met you that you were the “agent” for us. You impressed us immediately with your professionalism and warm personality. We want to express our great appreciation for your hard work and guidance throughout the process. We used your suggestions to make the necessary improvements that made our house more marketable in this current  real estate climate. You showed great patience in dealing with various issues that typically come up when selling a house. As our agent, you were very effective in looking out for our interests and dealing with all issues promptly.”

The Curtis Family

With Shellie it was “text book”…….

We have known Shellie personally  for a number of years. When it came time to make a move and downsize from our large home, we knew immediately who we trusted and hired Shellie. She guided us with complete professionalism throughout the entire process. A real estate transaction can be a very stressful experience. With Shellie it was “text book.” After the sale we rented for two years. When it was time to buy again, Shellie represented us and she succeeded in again guiding us through the “multiple offer” process with success. We are so happy in our new home and so grateful to Shellie for making it seamless.              

Mark & April Johanson

Great experience…

Trusting Shellie Kirby with the “sale” of our home was one of the smartest moves we’ve made. From Day 1, she lead us through all the nuances that come with “selling” a home. It was our first time “selling” so we had no idea all that’s involved. She was so patient and professional with us. We certainly can’t recommend her more highly.

Ken & Lynn Twining

Amazing job…

Shellie did an amazing job throughout the process of our real estate transaction and we feel she is incomparable in her knowledge and ability to market a property. She demonstrated strength in her organization of the process and the ability to keep her clients on track. Putting a house on the market is labor intensive with many tasks to be coordinated. Shellie knows the best people to call on for help. She is also an outstanding negotiator and was our best ally throughout the transaction. Shellie stayed on top of the details and gets things done. Conscientious and seemingly always available, Shellie answered all of our questions and gave us valued advice based on her years of experience.
