Testimonials

It was a challenging closing with the builder and his reality agent, but Shirley negotiated a satisfactory outcome. She is becoming a good friend to my wife Joanne and me.

- Donald D

Shirley was so helpful in the process of buying our new home from start to finish. And when she wasn't available, her assistant Maddison was right there to help. The only negative I would say is that there are some quirks to our home that should have been disclosed. However, she may not have even been aware of them. Overall, the experience with Shirley was fantastic and we can say enough about how helpful she was to us.

- Erica M

Shirley was a wonderful person and agent to work with. She is extremely professional, but also understands the emotional side of selling a home.

Shirley did a great job helping to sell our condo in a quick and efficient manner. Her pricing of the property was spot on and the condo traded very close to that level.

Inquired about a condo listing that was her listing. Shirley has expertly guided us in two real estate purchases and one sale. Her conscientiousness and attention to detail is outstanding. We have bought and sold multiple properties in multiple markets through the years and Shirley is by far the best agent we have ever worked with. And she will be the only agent we work with in the future should the need arise again.

- Paul O

Shirley is a professional in every sense of the word. She has a unique ability to take on all the worry for her clients, which makes the stressful process of moving just a little bit easier. Her attention to detail means nothing is forgotten, and she has incredible stores of patience when dealing with the emotional side of home buying/selling. We feel lucky to have met Shirley. My husband and I have bought and sold many houses over the years and Shirley is by far the best and most skilled realtor we've ever worked with. Wish we could give more than five stars!

- Rebecca S

We have used Shirley twice and both times Shirley exceeded our expectations!

- James S

Shirley is very knowledgeable about the Lakes Region market and current trends. She provided sound advice from marketing our property until closing. She held more open houses than we realistically expected and made many additional private showings. Being local she was able to respond quickly and made herself available without much notice. Regarding the search for a replacement home, Shirley sent many desirable listings our way but they disappeared before we were able to view them. She ultimately brought us to Governor's Crossing. The houses were desirable but part of an association, which we were trying to avoid. We saw the lots on Pendleton and Endicott and she quickly introduced us to the builder. After one meeting we decided we wanted to work with him and it's been a pleasure since. The house is currently under construction and we are enjoying working with the builder. This has added much needed excitement in an otherwise dreary year. Shirley provided exceptional attention helping us build and sell and we look forward to an ongoing relationship.

- Joseph P

She’s quick and efficient!

- trustee D

Shirley explained steps and finalized our sale with sending papers. She was thorough and helped by explaining our options with listing our home.

- trustee D

Shirley is 100% professional and very knowledgeable about the market. She discussed her marketing plan with us and immediately put it into action. We had 4 offers within the first week and sold the property for more than the asking price! Can’t say enough about her.

- trustee J

Shirley provided beyond exceptional service. She has been so responsive and is always ready to answer any question with great advice. Her hard work has allowed us to get our dream house!

- Caroline L

Shirley is incredible. I don’t know how she can physically make the time to be as available, accessible and as helpful as she is. I’m convinced she shares the stage with a clone...maybe two or three clones.

- Gregory A

Shirley is professional and friendly. She has a great deal of knowledge.

- Michele M

Great job making the closing quick and simple

- Anne C

Shirley's reputation for Samoset is incredible. Before we met her, we saw her working for Seller and looking out for buyers through the Samoset page. Everyone that talked about her expressed her detailed knowledge of not only the Samoset compound, but the lakes region in general. We met Shirley when Samoset #5 went on the market. She was the Sellers agent, but we were so comfortable with her that we didn't pursue a buyers agent. Through the process of acquiring unit #5, we received timely accurate information and assistance in a process that led to us securing the property. At no point did we feel she had a conflict of interest, she was very professional in her communication between the seller and buyer. Based on that, we gave Shirley the listing to sell our condo, Samoset #131. She was collaborative, but made sure that we had control of pricing and strategy to sell the property. When we got the results of a very zealous inspector, she helped us separate the real issues from the 'negotiation' issues. She gave us good advice that led to a quick sale, with both the seller and buyer owning closing tasks. in my opinion, she overcame an emotional buyer agent and helped turn the corner and avoid arbitrary requests on their part. All through the process, she was extremely helpful, with a strong list of contracts that help the process - from inspectors, contractors, and especially internal politics at Samoset. Without Shirley, i can see that this would have been a much more stressful transaction.

- William B

We initially chose Shirley as our realtor, based on the fact that she was a resident at Samoset, where we were planning on selling/purchasing a condominium. We saw this as an advantage, as she was very familiar with the property, and could attest to the positive aspects of the units and lifestyle of its residents. We immediately learned that in addition to Shirley's familiarity with the property, that she was an extremely competent, efficient and knowledgeable realtor. Throughout our selling and buying experience, Shirley was readily available to offer advice, answer questions, and to guide us through the process. She communicated clearly, and always responded at her earliest convenience to our questions and concerns. When she was unable to answer a question, she was able to reach out to the appropriate resources, in order to provide the information needed. Shirley's calm and friendly demeanor put as at ease throughout what can often be an extremely stressful process. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Shirley as a buying or selling agent. Thank you, Shirley!!!

- Sarah B

Couldn’t have done it without her!

- Tamara M

Shirley was wonderful! I saw her work from the Samoset Facebook page. We immediately connected upon meeting and she made a potentially stressful time go smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone interested in that area with full confidence. Thanks, Shirley!!

- Maya K

Shirley was always friendly and helpful, easy to get ahold of and acted quickly. She did so many things for us last minute and was very flexible. She was happy to answer questions and give advice based on her experience. She had a good idea of what we were looking for in a house and suggested things to us we might not have otherwise found or considered. Shirley is great at her job and made a great last minute negotiation and fought for her clients! We would most definitely work with her again and will recommend her to our friends in need of a realtor.

- Mariah G

Shirley was absolutely awesome and very knowledgeable! She was super quick with responses and showings and stood up for us when we needed it. She always met us at showings and was willing to drive all over for us and we loved having her. Would 10/10 recommend and love to deal with in the future!

- Cody G

I was on Shirley's mailing list for 3 or 4 years looking for a lake/ski property after meeting her at an open house. Finally the time was right and a good opportunity for our needs became available. Shirley was extremely diligent and corresponded with us early mornings or late at night as needed.

- Neil O

Shirley was very helpful from beginning to end. Always responded quickly to any questions that we had for her. Help to make our home buying experience smooth.

- Warren B

Shirley was amazing. We lost our daughter during this process of buying our home and she went above and beyond to assist us. She was wonderful

- Kathleen B

We first met Shirley at an open house and immediately struck up a great conversation. That particular property wasnt the right fit for us but we were looking for a second home and were very new to the area aside from staying in an airb&b a few times. Shirley went above and beyond sharing advice on the different parts the lake, different developments, etc. She would spend considerably time talking in person with us or responding with detailed, thoughtful responses to questions over email. We subsequently found Shirley to be an invaluable resource and friendly face in the area and we viewed a number of properties with her over the next year or more. Shirley was by far the most proactive real estate agent we had met in the area. The perfect property for us popped up, Shirley forwarded the listing to us within less than a hour of it going live and we had a written offer in place an hour or two later! She facilitated every step of the process and this was the most pain-free real estate transaction we've ever been through. Shirley was an absolute pleasure to work with and in our experience a rare go-getter in the lakes area (shocking how many agents we met in that area who had zero motivation or follow through).

- Sean B

Shirley has a fantastic reputation for marketing and selling Samoset condos so I called her immediately when I decided to list. She was very easy to communicate with whether through texting, calling or email and did a great job finding us a buyer and negotiating through the entire process. I would highly Recommend Shirley for your lakes region realtor.

- Jason C

I met Shirley at a networking event and took to her immediately. She is a warm and kind person who is easy to talk to. I told her that I was in the market for my first home and that I knew nothing about the process and was intimidated by it. Shirley assured me that it was painless and she could make it happen and wall me through it all. Shirley did just that! She set me up with a lender and set up a meeting at her office. She kept an eye on the market and was very helpful with suggestions, she knew exactly what we wanted. She was amazing during the negotiations and was true to her word, and made it absolutely painless on my end. Shirley and the lender even got my closing date pulled in to an earlier date. Shirley is amazing! Not only did I get a realtor but I got a friendship with Shirley Thank you so much for finding us a home!

- Lisa C

Shirley did a fantastic job in marketing and selling our condo! She kept us informed during the process and made great recommendations during the selling process. We would use her services again if the opportunity presented itself. We have recommended her to others.
