“We have been ‘represented buyers’ for 4 different properties across the U.S. over the last ten years and Shelly is BY FAR the best agent we have dealt/worked with. Key attributes: knowledgeable, focused, friendly, attentive, aggressive, responsive, and professional. She is a very effective communicator. Shelly will pay close attention to the type of property you are seeking, will note your likes and dislikes as you view properties, then will filter out and not show you properties that do not fit your requirements. She will NOT waste your time!! She knows the area and is very in-tune with the local services infrastructure (e.g. internet providers/challenges, inspectors, utilities, etc.). What she doesn’t know off hand, she is very aggressive at researching the answers you will need. I cannot say I enough about her performance in support of our search! Hands down, she guided us through the best property purchase experience we have ever had! I highly recommend Shelly for your property needs! Contact her, you will not be disappointed.”

“Shelly helped us find our dream property for a 1031 exchange. We were very pleased with her knowledge of the area and her professionalism. We were also grateful, being out-of-state buyers with a deadline to meet, at how much she looked out for our best interests. Even though our buy wasn’t a multi-million-dollar deal, she gave us the same attention, courtesy and exemplary professionalism as if it was.”

“Shelly Ragland helped me find my dream property! She eagerly catered to my needs and wants, finding my perfect spot in the exact location I wanted. As an out-of-town buyer, I was never worried about the process or what was happening. I consider her a lifelong friend.”

“Shelly was very helpful and thorough as our buyer’s agent when we bought a property. She continued to look out for us every step of the way. We felt very fortunate and highly recommend her!”
