What My Clients Say
We have plenty of experience working with more than 10 real estate agents who were trying to sell our houses over the past decade. Ms. Terry was our last and by far the best agent we have ever met! As both our listing and buyer's agent she was always on time and always available, going the extra mile whenever it was necessary. She kept us on schedule without ever being pushy and never missed any appointments, meetings, or paperwork. She always respected and represented our point of view with utmost professionalism and never rested until we were happy. We are very grateful for all her efforts and simply put she is the best you can have!

Dear Ms. Terry,
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to express my appreciation for a job well done. It has been a treat working with a true pro. My new home is absolutely perfect and I couldn't have found it without you. You have an uncanny ability to sift through what I "thought" I wanted and showed me what I really wanted.
Your calm demeanor and reassuring words were invaluable during and after the inspection and the way you handled all of the issues made all parties happy - a remarkable feat.
Thanks again and I look forward to keeping in touch.
Sincerely, Mr. Eddie C....
When we enlisted Shell to sell our home we were very fearful that it would not sell. We had worked with four other agents over the last few years and never even had an offer on our house. Shelly is very professional and shoots straight. She gave us useful and affordable suggestions on things to do to get the house ready to list. She also helped us find the perfect price to make the house sell quickly. And it did! We were thrilled and overwhelmed at the thought of now looking for a new home. During our home search she was great to show us homes when we were free. We saw MANY homes and she was always happy to let us take out time or even return for multiple visits. One of my favorite things Shelly said to us was that she would never show us a house that was over our budget. Many agents are in it for the money and Shelly truly had our best interest in mind. I hope to be in my home for many years to come, but if we find ourselves in need of an agent we know we would use Shelly again!

“Shelly has gone above and beyond expectations as our realtor. Being out of town is difficult when selling a home. With Shelly – it has been an easy transition. She is in constant communication with us and brings lots of ideas to the table. We would highly recommend Shelly to anyone looking to sell their home!”

"Shelly Terry came highly recommended to us by some close friends who had a great experience with her. We soon knew why. She was very professional and gave us sound advice about what we needed to do to make our home marketable. We took her advice and sold our house within 8 days! She helped us negotiate a great contract, she walked us through all the details of the closing process and then helped us locate a new home. We were able to close on our old house, purchase a new home and were able to move into our new home within a month and a half of putting our original house on the market! Shelly Terry is not only an excellent real estate agent, she is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about selling their home or purchasing a new one."

Selling your home can be a daunting task. When my husband and I began this process we interviewed several realtors. Several were not in favor of Open Houses, however Shelly was. In this busy world many people initially view a home on the Internet. Shelly hired a professional photographer and displayed over twenty outstanding pictures of our home on the MLS website, thereby increasing the value of the ôfirst lookö. We believe some agents ôlist them and leave themö Shelly's investment of time at open houses and money via quality photos led to the successful sale of our home.

After living in a large two-story home on a 1/2 acre lot, it was time to downsize. I knew how to buy a house, but I did not know how to sell a house. I needed an agent to guide and advise me. Shelly Terry was that person.
"We found Shelly to be a very personable and knowledgeable agent. She was very patient with the process and worked all angles to help us obtain our home. Being a foreclosure purchase, there were a lot of extra tasks and obstacles, but Shelly did not mind and helped keep the process moving to completion. The bottom line is that Shelly will work for you and she gives accurate, prompt and useful information throughout the buying process. If you want a knowledgeable, efficient and caring agent, we highly recommend her!
Shelly, you are an awesome agent!"

"I am usually one to drag my feet on big decisions. I always want to take my time, learn all I can learn and make an informed decision. If we were going at my pace, we'd still probably be searching for a home. But Shelly helped us in so many ways and was always prompt in getting back to us, all the way from our initial search for an agent through our closing. This was our first home to purchase, and naturally we were nervous and anxious and not wanting to make a mistake.
When we started we had our eye on a foreclosure house that turned out to not be as good a deal as we'd hoped. When I shared my concerns with Shelly after viewing it, I was surprised that she didn't try to 'sell' me on it still. Instead she had a handful of other houses for us to look at later that week, one of which turned out to be our home.
Now, we are so happy with the purchase we have made. It feels great to own a home and we couldn't have asked for a better place to live especially in the price range we were looking. Shelly helped make that happen without being pushy, but rather encouraging us and letting us know how things work, making us comfortable with every step of the process. I'm quite grateful for her guidance through our process. We really had someone 'on our side' the whole step of the way."
Thanks so much for doing such a wonderful and thorough job for us!
