About Shelley

With the good fortune to be raised in an active military family, moving and relocating to a new community is what I’ve known best throughout my childhood. I’ve lived in Virginia, Florida, California and North Carolina. I learned through experience the fine art of finding just the right house that feels like home; the role of community, culture, and sports/recreation opportunities to enhance quality of life; and the importance of smart real estate investment for financial freedom. After graduation from UNC Chapel Hill in 1991, I chose to make the Triangle, NC my home. Working and raising my family in North Raleigh/Wake Forest has been the perfect balance of work and play opportunities in a beautiful vibrant community.

Having 30 years of local Customer Service, Business Development and Management experience (in Social Work and Real Estate) my goal is to put this to work for you. My hobbies include riding bikes on the beautiful greenway trails; meeting with friends and family at the various restaurants and cultural/sports events in the area; and playing, coaching and refereeing soccer. Whenever possible, I like to vacation with my family and love that the mountains or the beach are just a day’s drive away.

As a REALTOR® with an affinity for relocation, first-time home buyers, multi-generational living and recreational amenities, I have the area knowledge and resources available for your move.
The Seniors Real Estate Designation (SRES) shows my commitment to serve the diverse and often complicated needs of clients aged 50 and above, well into elder care needs. This is especially helpful for families with seniors relocating to the Triangle to live near loved ones. Conversely, a family home can be a burden following major life transitions (death, divorce, job change) and I can help you to maximize your proceeds with full service consultation and free staging through the listing process.

Each opportunity to meet a client and their family allows me to take a new personalized approach to meet your Real Estate needs and goals as you transition to the NEXT STAGE of your life, whether buying or selling your home. The best approach is always to communicate and work as a team. As you work closely with me, I also have a team of trusted business partners (such as lenders, insurance agents, inspectors, movers, photographers and attorneys) to make your experience as seamless as possible throughout your transaction and major life transition. It is never too soon to reach out and share your real estate goals with me and create a plan for a better future together.
