We couldn't be more satisfied as we are with Shelley's professional expertise and the way she respected our unique needs throughout this "at-times-stressful" journey. Shelley helped us submit an offer that stood out and negotiated a fair deal (below asking!) that closed in 21 days...during one of the most competitive housing markets . Anyone would benefit from Shelley's experience and knowledge. Thank you Shelley. Denis and I appreciate your dedicated and caring support. You rock!

From the moment that we met Shelly Long we knew we wanted her to represent us as our realtor in purchasing a new home. She immediately exhibited a great mixture of professionalism and personality. From day one all the way through closing, Shelly patiently answered every question we asked. There was great communication from the start. She listened to and understood our requests as to what we needed and wanted in our new home. Once she had helped guide us in finding the house that best fit our needs; she patiently walked us through every step of the process until keys were in hand! It was very refreshing to find an honest person that could highlight various aspects of each property we requested to view. Shelly pointed out what she thought would work for us and what might not; she allowed us to take our time and we appreciated her “no pressure” approach. Sometimes it seemed as though Shelly remembered what we were looking for more than we did. We would highly recommend Shelly L

Shelly was great through this entire process. Although we found our home very early in the search process, Shelly made herself available and was extremely prompt throughout the process. Especially at a very difficult time for her personally, she still made herself every bit available as she had been. We really appreciated this in particular, especially near the end, at closing and at a very stressful time.

I was very fortunate to find Shelly Long when I began searching for a home in the Sacramento area. I was moving from Santa Fe. As a gay man I very much wanted to find a LGBT realtor to help me make this move. Shelly has given me the very best service and support that I could hope for. She gave me guidance on areas to consider, found properties that fit my needs and wants, and guided me successfully through all of the thorny details of relocating from Santa Fe. Most importantly she was always reassuring as we dealt with snags along the way of this process. Since buying my new home Shelly is doing all of the hand holding I've needed to actually move into my new home. She's making this major change in my life as stress free as it can be. I can't recommend her highly enough to anyone buying or selling a home in the Sacramento area!

Shelly had an extensive knowledge of all the surrounding areas of Sacramento. She took the time to learn what we were looking for, LISTENED, and came back with prospective properties that were aligned with our needs and desires. She was extremely patient and took the time to point out advantages, disadvantages, highlights and negatives of each. She was nothing short of fabulous to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone buying a home!!

Jerrimi & Travis W - Sacramento, CA: 2015-07-04

I’m a first time Buyer in the Sacramento area and my partner was a Realtor in Texas (who recently relocated to the Sacramento area). We found Shelly online and decided to work with her due to experience, knowledge and personality. We found her to be very personable, an easy communicator, receptive to our many questions and a great educator to the market in this area. Shelly was tenacious when necessary, she was also protective and discreet with our personal information. She was able to focus on exactly what we wanted, even though we originally identified something completely different. Shelly made recommendations for inspectors and contractors, and yet allowed us to choose whomever we wished to work with. Shelly listened to our needs and matched them as best she could given the nature of the market (Fall 2013). Her energy and experience was exactly what we needed. We are grateful to have found her and happily recommend her for all your real estate needs. Sincerely, Jerrimi

When I was finally ready to buy my first house in 2013 I knew I was going to need a Realtor that I could trust. I needed someone with integrity, patience, knowledge and someone that would help guide me in making decisions that were always in my best interest. Shelly was all of these things for me and more. There were limited houses on the market that fit my criteria and after losing 4 houses to cash buyers I entertained settling for less just to get into a house. Shelly knew I would regret that compromise and worked with me non-stop until we found the perfect house. On September of 2013 I closed on my house and couldn't be happier. Shelly's professionalism, experience and familiarity with the Sacramento area make her a Realtor that I would highly recommend to anyone!
