Shelby is a Realtor/Broker who embodies the “heart of a teacher.” For more than eleven years, she successfully ran a home based child care business before closing the doors to rest and prepare to raise her own son. Originally from Illinois, Shelby attended college in Alabama and finally settled in Raleigh in 2002. She credits many family moves as a child for the empathy she now feels towards buyers and sellers and the inherent stress involved with moving, right down to the family pet frog. Buyers and sellers will appreciate Shelby’s accuracy of market value, knowledge of the area, willingness to listen to what their needs and wants are, as well as her ability to explain the process and manage her clients’ expectations. Shelby understands the magnitude of buying and selling a home and serves her clients with integrity and compassion.
