Shelley Shakes
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

 "Shelley is one of the most relatable and reliable real state agents I and my wife had worked with. She is always on top of the whole process and keeps all the pieces moving in pure sync. Highly recommended. Also, she had a great connection with our kids which make the whole process a lot easier. Her  attention to details, (communication, paperwork, process, follow-ups, updates) made our purchase an almost frictionless experience." - J. Vivas

"I cannot put into words how appreciative we are of Shelley Shakes and the job she did from start to finish of getting our house sold for more than we thought possible! She was on top of things from day one and didn’t miss a single detail! I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have a  realtor like Shelley during such a stressful time in your life! Picking the wrong realtor in the Bay Area could cost you thousands of dollars. Hands-down the best realtor in the Bay Area! I’m pretty sure she didn’t get a wink of sleep in two weeks" - Michelle A.


'We interviewed a number of agents before listing our home and we couldn’t have been more pleased with Shelley. All I can say is she rocked it, from the paperwork, staging, open houses, inspections, and securing the best offer for our home. If you are looking for a great agent give Shelley a  call." - Anthony A.


 "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"


"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!" - C. Bermudez


To anyone considering Shelley.... here is part of our story!! SHELLEY IS AWESOME!! When my honey and I decided it was time for us to buy a house, we found Shelley. With hundreds of realtors out there, it was like finding a needle in a haystack. Shelley was attentive and listened to our wish list, and showed us only houses that stayed clear of our "deal breakers" while she kept our budget in mind. She was never pushy, which is a hard quality to find. Once we found our house, she worked her butt off in our closing process. She exceeded our expectations and made sure the selling party took care of ALL OUR REPAIRS. NOT ONE, BUT ALL OF THEM!! Shelley even called our window warranty company to ensure that we were still covered, to put our minds at ease. She really went above and beyond of what's expected of a realitor. If you choose Shelley Shakes, you will have made your house buying experience effortless! All you will have to do is show up, and enjoy the house finding day. Shelley will take care of the rest!!
Side note: Shelley also trains seeing eye dogs. She will sometimes bring them along for training purposes, seeing first hand how these types of dogs are trained is really cool, it further proves that Shelley has the patience of a saint. She is a fellow animal lover, and just an over all well rounded person, so quiet awkward car rides will never happen with Shelley around. She is funny, and will instantly feel like family!!!

Thanks Shelley Shakes!! We LOVE our new home!!!

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.
