Passionate and dedicated, she considers it a privilege to serve as trusted advisor in a pivotal life event.

Her role is to achieve optimal terms, reduce worry and ensure a smooth and successful transaction every time. One very satisfied client among hundreds writes: "Shirley has served as my personal real estate agent for at least five transactions over the years, and I have also referred close friends and clients to her with complete confidence, knowing full well that she will manage the process from beginning to end with meticulous care and strength of character. She is a consummate professional and a patient listener with an uncommon skill set to meet any situation with aplomb".
