We met Shelly several years ago at a community meeting in San Francisco and immediately clicked. Her authenticity, sense of humor and deep knowledge of the local market were the initial traits that we were most impressed by. We stayed in touch with Shelly for many, many years, gaining her opinion on the extent of our remodeling investment, to raise rents and how the market was doing. When it came time to sell, we shopped for an agent, and Shelly stood head and shoulders above the rest. She took nothing for granted.
