    • Shelly is the most effective realtor I have ever used. Shelly provided exactly what I needed to very profitably navigate our demanding, dynamic local housing market and its buyers and sellers. She accurately assessed what improvements my property needed to attract top buyers and connected me to an artistic staging consultant. She guided me in strategically pricing my property to attract multiple desirable offers from appropriate buyers. And best of all, Shelly excels at and enjoys negotiating. She has the skills and confidence, born of success, to lead the negotiation process to a very desirable close. With Shelly guiding, you can be confident of success.

    • Shelly is a jewel: an expert in her knowledge base, diligent and thorough agent, and has true heart. She connected us with fantastic companies and individuals in preparation to sell our home, gave us clear information to ease the processes that can sometimes feel overwhelming and was both incredibly professional and thoughtful. We sold quickly, smoothly, and far beyond our asking price. Much gratitude to you Shelly!

    • From day one Shelly gave us guidance and excellent advice in selling our home in Oakland quickly. Every time we had a question, she was prompt in getting back to us. She represented us professionally in all aspects of her communication with the stager, our website, the photographer, other agents and the escrow company. We are so grateful for all her help- She was OUTSTANDING! From my kids: Shelly was nice, she always had a smile on her face :)

    • We worked with Shelly to buy our first home in Oakland. She was so incredibly patient with us. We couldn't afford a lot, but Shelly still worked with us to get it done. We couldn't be more grateful. Shelly is extremely knowledgeable about the Bay Area real estate market. The property we bought was one she recommended that we probably wouldn't have looked at on our own. She gave us good guidance and some tough love when we needed it. This woman is hard working and dedicated. We looked for nearly 2 years. Even when times were tough, she maintained a positive perspective and was extremely professional. I couldn't recommend her more.

      - Karla De Leon
    • Great gal, tough, dedicated, responsive. Handled the sale expertly. Underpromised, over performed. Would use her again if I had Oakland real estate to sell.

      - Phillip King
    • Helped me purchase a home after selling my prior residence. "After working with Shelly in the past, I have returned for her confident, professional care which she gives her clients, and her knowledge of real estate from various angles, having been a mortgage lender in the past. She readily acknowledged exactly what I wanted to buy and worked hard to find me my current home. She negotiated with the seller to lower my costs, which I appreciated, and orchestrated the deal to go smoothly and quickly. The sale of my previous home was also quick and easy. Shelly is my go-to person, and I have referred 2 friends who agreed that she was impressive to work with. Thanks Shelly!!!!!

    • Helped me buy a home, 238 Shoreline Ct, Richmond, CA 94804Shelly is one of the most amazing professionals I have ever worked with in any industry. She exemplifies everything that you would desire in a real estate professional. We had an extremely difficult situation that Shelly made bearable through her tenacity, experience, professionalism, knowledge, and integrity. We knew that she was 100% on our side and would fight for our best interests throughout. She never inflated expectations or told us things that weren't possible. She will always be our agent and we will refer any business we can to her in the future. My only regret is that we didn't find her sooner. Thank you, Shelly!

    • Shelly did an excellent job in assisting me locate my new home. She was patient and considerate, professional and trustworthy. She took the time to walk me through the home buying process and when things with my original lender went sideways she asserted herself and offered sound advice. In recommending another lending with whom she had worked with and we were able to keep the deal alive. She worked tirelessly with the listing agent keeping us all informed as to the progress of the transaction. I received a quick loan approval and prompt closing as a result.

    • Working with Shelly was great! She is incredibly knowledgeable and has her finger on the pulse of the real estate market.

Shelly helped us find our dream home! We highly recommend Shelly

      - Shevelle Pratt
    • Shelly was very helpful in helping us relocate to the Bay Area. We had high expectations, and a tight turnaround, and Shelly did not disappoint. With only 2 weeks to find a home, Shelly quickly shared the ins-and-outs of Bay Area real estate. She managed our expectations, and really schooled us on how the game needed to be played. We found a home we loved, and got it!

    • Please let me start by saying Shelly Flynn was our 2nd realtor after having to relist our property. Toward the end of the previous listing, I reached out to an organization called Fast Expert in search for the top producing realtor in Oakland. One realtor on the list of 3 emailed me within a day Shelly Flynn. From our initial discussion, I knew Shelly would be representing us. Shelly has great energy, is extremely professional and really knows how all of real estate works. I cannot emphasis this enough. Shes brilliant. From banking to staging to closing, Shelly provided the best professionals in the business and got the job done. Now here are the numbers thanks to Shelly. The minimum offer was $30000 over our asking price. We ended up accepting an offer that was $75000 over our asking price!! This offer we accepted was $110000 over the offer we had previously accepted using the other realtor. Talk about a silver lining when a deal falls through, naturally there is disappointment. That did not last long once we started working with Shelly. Would I hire her again? In a New York minute!!
