Experience and Expertise: A successful mid-age man realtor typically has accumulated significant experience in the real estate industry. This experience allows them to navigate various market conditions, understand client needs, and provide valuable insights and advice to their clients. Established Network: A strong network is crucial for a realtor's success. Mid-age professionals often have had time to build extensive personal and professional networks, which can include potential clients, other real estate professionals, and industry contacts. Leveraging these relationships can lead to referrals and valuable connections. Justin went above and beyond even though he wasn't my realtor. Thank you!

I feel very grateful to have been able to work with Shanon and Reta on the purchase and sale of a home! They are both very knowledgeable and professional. Shanon went over and above what I expected from a realtor. She made me feel like I was her only client during times that were very busy for her. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

If I could give Shanon more than 5 stars, I would.

She is an incredible realtor who was patient, determined and had my best interest at heart when I was looking for my first home. She helped me find an amazing home that I absolutely adore. I will be contacting her when I want to purchase my next home.

Shanon Kelley comes very highly recommended from me!

I was lost and she guided me through everything to get me everything I wanted in a place. Amazing heart and goes above and beyond. Thanks again for all your help Shanon!

Shanon is a professional on every level.

Shanon has the highest concern and strong understanding about the real estate market and negotiation process. Her personality exhibits high moral character, inspiring integrity and knowledge that has made dealing with her a stress free and smooth process.

Stathis Savvis (William Wright Commercial)
Vancouver Island, BC

The most professional, dedicated and passionate realtor I have ever met.

Shanon has been helping me secure a land parcel on Vancouver Island and has spared no energy or effort to provide me the best possible service: all this without having had the chance of meeting me due to Covid and from across the globe as I’m based in Europe. She is truly one of a kind.

Claudio de Sanctis
Vancouver Island, BC

We were so lucky we got Shanon Kelley as our realtor.

As first time home buyers we needed some explaining and reminding and Shanon never made us feel dumb or ignorant. Instead she remained professional and supportive. We ended up purchasing a townhouse we had never seen, in a town we had never been to, and were moving from Vancouver Island to the island with little ones.

Being an agent myself, I know how important it is to have the RIGHT person for the job.

I first met Shanon Kelley many years ago when I was a newly licensed realtor and after hearing her speak, I was inspired to model my business practices after her. Shanon ALWAYS puts the needs of her clients first and is dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for them.
