More about Shelley Shakes
Growing up at the foot of Mt. Diablo in Walnut Creek, CA, I rode my horse through the trails surrounding Mt. Diablo and Las Trampas. The East Bay stayed with me as I moved to Chicago, Northern VA and San Francisco. When it came time to raise a family, my husband and I moved back to the East Bay, settling in San Ramon.
I enjoy all that the East Bay has to offer. Hiking in the rolling hills that surround the area, shopping at the farmer’s market in San Ramon and Danville and raising puppies for my favorite charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind.
I understand the stress of moving across town and across the country. I will help ease the burden of transitioning into your new home, whether it is 3 blocks, 3 cities, or several states away.
Providing exceptional customer service with a friendly and cheerful demeanor, my goal is to be your Realtor for life.
As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs, or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
