Shelley Shakes

License #:

Growing up at the foot of Mt. Diablo in Walnut Creek, CA, I rode my horse through the trails surrounding Mt. Diablo and Las Trampas. The East Bay stayed with me as I moved to Chicago, Northern VA and San Francisco.  When it came time to raise a family, my husband and I moved back to the East Bay, settling in San Ramon. 

I enjoy all that the East Bay has to offer. Hiking in the rolling hills that surround the area, shopping at the farmer’s market in San Ramon and Danville, and raising puppies for my favorite charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind.

I understand the stress of moving across town and across the country. I will help ease the burden of transitioning into your new home, whether it is 3 blocks, 3 cities, or several states away.

Providing exceptional customer service with a friendly and cheerful demeanor, my goal is to be your Realtor for life.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

""I could not have kept my sanity without Shelley staying on top of all transactions and outstanding action items. Shelley is very professional. I appreciate her being prompt to all appointments, her courteousness, detailed eye, tenacious follow-up, and for being a keen listener. She never once attempted to push me out of my comfort zone. She went out of her way to provide multiple opinions from contractors to help me make my purchase. Thank you for going above and beyond!" "

" "Shelley & I worked together for over a month. She was "on top" of all the details, ALL the time. There is no sitting around and watching the flowers grow when Shelley is on the job. Not only did she set up the house to look its best, but in showing it over a three (3) day period she had five (5) offers all "over" asking price. Even though selling a house is exhausting, Shelley is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her.""

  -Thomas K Dewing, Client

"I have just finished working with Shelly who helped me both buy a new house and sell my existing house. She is fabulous! I agree with the other reviewers, she goes well above and beyond what you would expect in a realtor. Her attitude is fantastic. She is always positive, even if things are a little stressful, she helps you look at the upside. She was so good and helpful that my mother used her to sell her condo as well! I cannot recommend her highly enough."
