"Shawn made the purchase of our property easy and pleasant by guiding us through local customs and connecting us with informed partners for our loan, inspections, etc. We really appreciated Shawn's positive attitude and helpful nature. He made us feel comfortable all along the way, and now we're happily enjoying our home."

"We met Shawn sort of accidentally. In our exploration of new areas, we visited an open house that he had listed. That particular property wasn't for us, but Shawn offered to help us with other properties. We needed creative financing to proceed, and he had the perfect source. Fast forward to finding the perfect property. Shawn kept the process on track regarding deadlines, etc. He was present for every inspection. He made time for multiple conversations, all while keeping his calm and factual demeanor. Something very important to us, was that he had excellent sources for various contractors - who we continue to use today. We are happy to have connected with him and happily recommend that you do, too!"

"I couldn't have a higher opinion of Shawn Kelly. As a first-time home buyer, I was very unsure and nervous about the whole process. From the beginning, Shawn was there, answering questions, offering advice, making sure everything was done correctly. Getting in touch was never a problem, and he made sure he was present at every visit and meeting we had. Even after we closed, he was still there to help us out, working out a few kinks with the home warranty. Truly a great agent. Thanks, Shawn!"

"Shawn was one of several realtors we met in our process as first-time homebuyers. We knew quickly that he was the right choice, with his expertise, relaxed demeanor, and clear objective to help us get what we wanted and deserved. Shawn had our best interests in mind every step of the way. He wasn’t afraid to point out flaws in homes and didn’t stray away from our budget. In addition, when it came time to make an offer on our dream home, Shawn did everything in his power to make sure we got the most for our money, and was a skilled negotiator. When we moved in, he sent pizzas and soda over to our new house! Overall the experience was made as stress-free as possible with Shawn. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to friends and family!"

"My wife and I met Shawn by chance at an Open House he was hosting, and he made an immediate impression. His follow up was immediate, thorough and thoughtful. A perfect reflection of the professionalism and personal touch he brings to table. We decided to work with him to buy our home and are so glad we did. While Shawn obviously understood what type of home we were looking for (single family, 3 bdrm, etc.), he immediately seemed to have a clear picture of who we were and what would and would not appeal to our sensibilities, and he was very patient with us as we considered our options. He was able to recommend areas we had never considered (because we didn't know they were there!) to appropriately balance sqft, cost, and commute. It took only a matter of weeks to find our new home and with his help it was off the market the day after we saw it. We owned it less than a month later. We were so impressed with Shawn's knowledge of the market and the home-buying process that once we found our new home we enlisted his help to sell our condo as well. His professional photography, listing and Open Houses had our old home sold in 3 Days having gotten multiple offers. It was easier than we had ever thought possible. If and when the time comes, we will be working with Shawn again."
