“My background growing up in a family business environment in Ireland and later my graduate degrees and practice in economics and clinical psychology laid the groundwork for my success; but nothing compares to my extensive experience in real estate sales over the past 30+ years. This coupled with my business instincts, results-driven style, and personable approach, enables me to provide superior service whether you are a potential buyer or seller. My goal is to exceed your expectations by providing such a level of service to you as my client that I will be your agent for life and that should you wish to refer a dear family member or friend to an effective realtor you respect and trust, your automatic choice without hesitation would be me!
I am happy to say that the following testimonials best summarize the feedback I consistently receive and have received from my clients whether they are buyers or sellers.”
"Sheila worked with me in to find a house that I loved and was appropriately priced. This was no small feat given the hot market and insane overbids that were common at the time. She then helped me through a difficult negotiation with the sellers and their agents. To say that I was impressed with her skills would be a gross understatement given the number of hoops we had to jump through to close the deal. When it came time to sell my house, I called Sheila and she worked with me to prepare my house for sale in 3 weeks. Absolutely unbelievable! My house was beautifully photographed, wonderfully staged, had multiple offers in the FIRST WEEK after its initial showing and we were in contract almost immediately for more than the asking price in the most difficult real estate market any of us has seen in many decades.
Here is the short list of what I love about Sheila: she listened to what I have to say, she gave me honest and direct feedback, she laid out all the options for me not just the ones that were easiest, most convenient or most profitable for her; she is extremely smart and she did not spare one penny when it came time to market my house for sale. Using both print and online resources Sheila made sure that the house shone as a real gem amidst all the other listings in the market at the time! In fact I've used Sheila's marketing materials as an example for my own business due to the print quality, layout, text, overall impact on the reader and the resulting lightning fast sale. What makes this all so special is that she is a wonderful person besides being a fantastic real estate agent. A better agent could not possibly be selected. I realize what a bold statement I am making and based on my personal experience with Sheila's performance, any buyer or seller would be lucky to have Sheila working for them" – Paul C.

"Thank you VERY VERY much for all your hard work and patience with us! We couldn't have done this without you! We appreciate your time, diligence, professional guidance, and quick responsiveness to our needs and concerns. Your gut was spot on, that when we didn't bid high enough of on ...Property X..., we must not have really wanted it. You knew ...Property Y... was our dream house (or as close as we were going to get!) and you strongly encouraged us to put our best foot forward. We are SO happy that we took your advice. Thank you for patiently spending the time with us and getting to know what we really wanted, despite our quirks:) You are AMAZING!!! With love and respect" - Juliana Y & Chris G.
"I have been meaning to write to thank you for all that you did to help us sell our house. I could not have been happier with the process you guided us through, or the happy ending to the story. There is no mystery about how we got seven offers, all of them over asking price: it was a result of your skill at figuring out just how to position the house in the marketplace and promote it among brokers and clients, along with your ability to manage us! I'm still blown away by how well you did it. I will be happy to recommend you to any potential clients. Just have them call me if these words aren't convincing enough" – David S.
"Sheila Gallagher did an outstanding job as our real estate agent representing the sale of our home during a time of extraordinary difficulty for those attempting to sell a home. Her guidance regarding price, staging and promotion was invaluable, and her experience, detailed understanding of process, and negotiating skills were essential at critical times in the sale. She has now twice been our agent in successful transactions, and we would certainly ask her to represent us again should the need arise" – Dr. David & Gayle Kerns
