More about Shannon Smith

I could give you the standard REALTOR® bio…I will fight for my clients, I’ve sold a million homes, I’m married with kids, I love my dogs…blah, blah, blah. All the things in those standard bios are probably 100% true, but I decided I wanted something a little different. Here is where I veer off course. Instead of telling you all the things I will do for you, I am going to tell you the things that I will not do. I think it will give you a much better understanding of who I really am. I will not be a “yes man”. I will not tell you things just because I think it is what you want to hear. I will not try to “talk you into” buying a house. If I think a house isn’t right for you, I will not be afraid to tell you why I feel that way. I will not tell you your home is worth more than it actually is just to get my sign in your yard only to turnaround and ask you to reduce the price 2 weeks ...

Shannon Smith

  • Shannon helped me buy a home

      Shannon was very responsive and easy to work with. She helped us negotiate a multiple offer situation, and gave great recommendations for different local home repair and remodeling companies. Thank you Shannon!

    • Shannon did a great job of selling our property and put in a lot of hard work to do so. The market was tough and moving very slowly at the time the property was for sale, she worked months to sell our condo.

    • Shannon was extremely helpful when I was looking to buy my first home. She had great insight and very patiently showed me as many properties as she needed to as we searched for the right house. She expertly helped me navigate the market to find the right balance of what I was looking for in a home with what I could afford with my budget. I would highly recommend Shannon Smith to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

    • My fiance and I were first time home buyers looking for a place to make our own and begin our lives together. We had lived in an apartment in a small town about 35 minutes away and were both commuting to Bloomington Normal every day. We began looking for houses in town on our own and had gone to a couple open houses in the area. We inevitably struck up a conversation with whichever realtor was running the house, but most that we met were very abrasive and looked annoyed at our questions. They seemed more worried about their commission than about finding us a good home. I met Shannon through work and she explained that she was beginning her real estate career and would love to show my fiance and I some houses. We agreed and it was a very good thing that we did. Shannon was an absolute pleasure to work with. Shannon worked with us over the course of about 2 months and we walked through perhaps 10-15 houses. Shannon was always willing to work around our schedules and was very helpful in explaining the ins-and-outs of the real estate market. Plus she has extensive knowledge in insurance practices and when we would tour a home, she was able to make comments about the quality of the homes and what might be of concern years down the road if we were to purchase it. Her knowledge and friendliness put our worries at ease. It was like house hunting with a relative and not someone just trying to make money off us. She put effort in finding homes that she knew would meet our needs and encompass our wants and helped bring calmness as we considered the options for the most expensive purchase we would ever make. We had toured one home which my fiance and I fell in love with, but it was sadly just out of our price range. Several weeks after that tour, they dropped the price ten grand which fell into our range. I think the price had been lowered for all of about 5 minutes before Shannon reached out to us to let us know. We met with Shannon that night and did a 2nd walk-through of the house and decided we would make an offer. Through Shannons promptness and her ability to work with the seller our offer was accepted. Shannon was almost as excited as we were at the closing. Home buying isnt so scary when you have a professional on your side to walk you through it. 10/10 would recommend to friends and family.

    • Shannon helped me purchase my home and was so helpful in every step of the process. Buying a home can be stressful but Shannon makes the process fun. She's personable, knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy. Look no further and make her your choice for all your real estate needs!

    • Shannon made the entire process of moving back to Bloomington such a positive experience. She was always available via phone & email. She would regularly send me home matches that met my price, location requirements. She had a positive attitude when we would tour houses yet be honest & direct with any issues she noticed. A very down to earth realtor!

    • Shannon made our first home buying experience a dream! She was great to work with! Shannon is very friendly and upbeat, which makes looking for a home with her a positive experience. She listened to what we were looking for and showed us houses that fit our wants and needs. Shannon offered helpful suggestions and her honest, professional opinion. She was patient as she answered all of our questions and concerns. Shannon responded to texts, emails, and calls on nights and weekends, which we greatly appreciated. When we're ready to sell our home and look for a new one, we will definitely be calling Shannon!

      - Brandi McCarrey
    • Would recommend Shannon. She is quick to respond and is always helpful especially since I was buying my first home! She was very patient and professional!

    • Shannon was a wonderful agent to work with. As this was our first home, Shannon walked us through the process from beginning to end, answering the MANY questions along the way! I couldn't have asked for a more prompt response. She always responded to texts, even late in the evening, without hesitation. Shannon found the time to show us homes later in the evening, making it convenient for us around our odd work hours. There were a few unexpected issues that arose just before and even a month after closing, and she was eager to help resolve the problems. She was an advocate for us and made buying our first home a wonderful experience!

    • I could not have asked for a better realtor! Shannon is incredibly knowledgeable, trustworthy, and easy to work with. Shannon did a lot of work marketing my home before it was listed which resulted in my house selling in only 4 days!!! I would recommend Shannon to all my friends and family!

    • Shannon Smith is fabulous to work with. I met her at an open house and immediately knew we would hire her to help us find our new home. Shannon listened to our needs and wants and sent us listings to view. From those listings we were able to fine tune what we were looking for in a house. Shannon is professional and personable. She is knowledge about the market and honest. In the past I have worked with realtors that are solely interested in selling a house. If you are looking for a realtor that is interested in helping you find the right house for you, I highly recommend Shannon Smith.

    • We purchase our first home through Shannon this Spring. We had been looking since November and Shannon really worked with us to find the right house. When we looked at houses she was always very honest with us, expressed concerns, and even at times told us not to buy one. Shannon was also up to date with what was coming on the market and responded back very quickly. I would recommend (and have!) her to anyone looking for a realtor.

    • Shannon was great! She made everything super easy with purchasing a home! Very patient as we looked at a few homes. Very knowledgeable with different aspects of the homes we looked at and what to consider for the future. Was very on top of new homes coming on the market, and helped find the perfect one in Normal! Scheduled a viewing the same day, negotiated a great price, and we purchased the first day it came on the market! Also, helped me find a great mortgage lender. I recommend anyone I know to Shannon!

    • Shannon did a great job or responding quickly to an questions or inquiries about different properties around Bloomington and Normal. Her ability to find different houses to satisfy the buyer's characteristics is one of the reasons I chose to do business with her. If I were to purchase another house or list mine for sale, there is no doubt, I would go through Shannon.

    • Shannon did a wonderful job helping us buy our first house. She worked with us around our difficult work schedules and put up with our fastidiousness. She showed us many many houses after the usual hours and never pressured or complained about how long we took to look or what time we asked for. I would absolutely recommend her to a family member, friend, or coworker In need of a real estate pro!

    • Shannon was great to work with! We had some not so great experiences with other realtors, and Shannon really showed us how a realtor should work with someone trying to buy a house. She was especially helpful explaining the Home buying process to us since we were first time home buyers. I highly recommend working with her.

      - zuser20170228160139585
    • Shannon was great to work with and she was very helpful in our long year long search of a home. She never gives up on what your looking for in your home! She is very respectful and has a great personality. We will for sure tell anyone we know who's looking to buy a home hands down Shannon Smith is the best around!!! Thanks again for being so great Shannon!

    • Shannon was a pleasure to work with when buying our new home and selling our old one! I highly doubt that many realtors in Bloomington Normal would be as quick to accommodate and respond as Shannon. It did not matter what time of day, she was quick to respond and provide answers to all of our questions, or if she did not know the answer, she would quickly find out. Furthermore, Shannon was very patient and understanding when it came to discussing just how stressful the process of selling a house can be. In the past, we have dealt with realtors who are "all business" and don't really care if you are stressed. Shannon is personable and because of this, she helps to make a stressful process much less stressful! I would highly recommend Shannon for the sell of your current home or purchase or your next home!

    • My husband and I felt confident in Shannon's ability to size up a situation and understand what we were looking for in our next home. She patiently worked with us for a few months and made prompt arrangements to see any potential properties we were interested in. Shannon ultimately negotiated a great deal on our current home. FYI: We sold a previous house as a FSBO because of negative experiences with past real estate agents who were too busy, impersonal, or uninterested. But our new home purchase with Shannon gave us a real change of heart. We turned around and asked her to sell our old house, which she did in TWO dayswow! Shannon was incredibly attentive, involved, and responsive to our concerns and a steady stream of text messages. We'd gladly work with her again!

      - BeaElcey
    • With us being new to the home buying experience, she made it feel effortless. Not one piece of the process was stressful. Very knowledgeable with all our questions. Would definitely recommend her to others. Very pleased :), happy homeowners!!!

    • Shannon has done it again!Shannon sold us this house several years ago and did a fantastic job listening to what my wife and I wanted and showing houses which fit both our desires and price range. I recently got a promotion at work which caused my wife and I to relocate to Georgia. It was a relatively short notice so we had to get our house sold fast. Because of how great Shannon was to work with the first go around, I knew I wanted her in our corner again. I called Shannon out of the blue and she was very quick to turn around and get out to our house to talk with us about the process and what to expect.As many of you know, the housing market in Bloomington/Normal is not very good with the shear number of houses available courtesy of State Farm's changes. I was nervous about listing because I was afraid that our house would sit on the market as I had seen so many others do.Shannon assured us that with her marketing work and through the help of sites such as Zillow, we would be in a very good position going into the market. She was not lying!!!! Our house went on the market and 2 days later we got our first offer. Shannon worked diligently with us in going back and forth with the prospective buyers and worked out a deal all sides were happy with. From listing to sold in 5 days. You can't ask for better service.So for real, whether your buying your first home, selling your first home, or simply upgrading, please do yourself a favor and call Shannon. She is knowledgeable about the market, very friendly and easy to talk to, maintains open communication throughout the whole process, and really listens to your needs and addresses your concerns. She deserves to be your realtor. If the situation ever turns and I have to move back to the B/N area, I know who I will call.

    • I am so lucky to have found Shannon to help me with my first home, she made everything so easy and fun. She seemed to know what I wanted before I even knew I wanted it. I can't express how extremely happy I am with the home she found for me. I Would definitely recommend her to others.

    • Shannon was extremely helpful, she made time on short notices to show us houses. She was very knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods and schools, as well as local shopping and other attractions that were of interest to us. Her friendly nature and genuine interest in finding what we were looking for, shows her dedication to help folks not just find a house, but a place that they can call home. In my opinion she was very professional and courteous answering all of our questions and helping us with paperwork during financing, and school registration needs. Whether it was an email, text or in person, she always got back to us quickly.

    • Shannon was great!! Always patient, positive and on point. Shannon listened to the needs of me and my family and she delivered. As a first time buyer there were many times I would get discouraged and jump on that emotional roller coaster and Shannon would somehow always get me back on track. Shannon walked me through the entire process and has continued to make herself available even after my closing. I would highly recommend her services.

      - missy3674
    • Was very timely with responses and very willing to make time to meet. I was introduced to Shannon the day before we looked at the first house. She was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and really helped me narrow down what I was looking for. Would highly recommend her services whether you're a first time home buyer or buying your 10th home.
