"Shannon really helped us to narrow our focus during our home search. She helped us figure out what we really wanted in our next home. Her positive attitude enthusiasm kept us going when we felt discouraged. We enjoyed working with Shannon so much that when it came time to sell, she was who we selected, Shannon was our buyer’s agent also our home. She is very thorough immediately handles whatever needs to be done. She had great pointers for getting our home ready for showings and was an excellent negotiator. It was helpful to have someone as knowledgeable as Shannon when looking for a home. She had a good eye regarding the structural soundness of a home. I felt more confident making an offer having her input." - Jennifer

"We picked Shannon because she was very in tune with the real estate market for this area. Thanks to Shannon, we were the first people to tour the home we wound up buying. Shannon also our existing home. She was very dedicated and responsive. Even on Halloween night, Shannon brought over two offers" - Lori

"The first time we met with Shannon we told her we had very specific features we needed in a home and it could take years for us to find it. She didn’t blink. Even though she was one of the most successful brokers in the area she was still ready to take us on. For 18 months we looked at houses, townhouses, a few condos over 4-5 suburbs. She would tell us the place needed too much work, was over priced, etc. She never pushed us or grew impatient. The right place finally came on the market and we’re very happy." - Morton

"We have bought and many houses over the years but we have never worked with anyone who was even close to Shannon in terms of professionalism, knowledge and just plain hard work. Even though Shannon is one of the most brokers the western suburbs, she made us feel as if we were her only client. She kept us informed during every phase of the sales process, made great suggestions secured multiple nearly full price offers within ten days. Shannon also helped us find our next home, once again, her extensive market knowledge dedication to her work made the process successful. Prior to signing with Shannon, the home languished on the market with another broker who basically ignored us for seven months. If you are or seeking a home in the western suburbs, Shannon should be your first only choice."- William

"Shannon was incredibly professional and a pleasure to work with. After meeting with her and following her recommendations, we put our house on the market. After the first day, we had two offers and the house sold at an excellent price. To say the least, I am thoroughly impressed with Shannon and highly recommend her as a realtor."- Patrick
