Shelly Flynn's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Shelly Flynn

    • I highly recommend Shelly. She represented us in buying our home in Piedmont. As first-time homebuyers, my husband and I really appreciated how Shelly guided us through the home-buying process in a supportive, informative, and non-salesy way. She was incredibly responsive and a great communicator, a skill she leveraged when working with the listing agents. Shelly knows the East Bay very well and helped us draft competitive offers (we only lost one before getting our house!). Beyond her extensive knowledge of the market, excellent communication skills, and general professionalism, Shelly is just an absolute pleasure to work withyou feel like youre talking to a friend, which is exactly what you want when going through the stressful home buying process. We cant thank her enough for helping us get our dream home.

      - Lauren Wenner
    • Shelly is an amazing agent and an awesome person. She is dedicated to her clients, extremely knowledgeable, masterful in negotiations, and she seems to have almost a sixth sense in matching people with homes. She does all this with honesty, positivity, directness, and a big smile... I feel lucky to have worked with her.

      - Rachael Carnes
    • Shelly has helped me buy and sell 3 times now. I would recommend Shelly and her rockstar team to all my friends. She is dynamic, creative, and a go-getter. You want her on your side. I'm lucky to have a realtor who has become my friend.

      - Thomas Minter
    • We bought an investment condo with Shelly's help in 2012. She's the best agent we've ever had, period! She helped us view many properties before we finally purchased this investment property. She really went the extra mile for us. When we sold this property in 2019, we again went to Shelly to list the property, and everything went really smoothly thanks to her knowledge and experience in the market.

      - Jean Kim
    • What a pleasure it was to have Shelly lead the team to sell my parent's condo in Oakland. We found her based on reviews we saw online and she lived up to (and exceeded!) our expectations. I think Shelly has a special alchemy in what she does - she blends her extensive knowledge and experience of the local market, people, and the business of the real estate profession in a way that produces golden results. I felt that the more we trusted her voice and decisions -- from renovating, staging, pricing, marketing -- the better the overall outcome was able to emerge. And to do all of this with optimism, kindness, and integrity...I'm forever grateful we were able to work with her as we help our parents transition into retirement.

      - Arlene Suda
    • Shelly DELIVERS! Her results are impressive, and her negotiation skills are on point. Shelly helped me purchase a home, and sell one. She was on my side the entire time. Highly recommended.

      - Tenneshia Thomson
    • From day 1 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 :) Update: now that we just sold our first home, Shelly has just helped us purchase our forever home! She walked us through the buying process and looked out for our best interest! Shell be our life long realtor! And wed recommend her to any of our friends and family.

      - Jennifer Farrell
    • Shelly was the go-to woman who made my sale happen! She was prompt and professional, and also patient with me as a first-time buyer. She has a positive attitude and confidence that made her a pleasure to work with, and I knew I was in good hands from the start. In this highly competitive market, Shelly went the extra distance to help me close on my dream home, and I am so happy I chose her as my agent!

      - Allison Eisenhardt
    • I worked with Shelly to sell my condo in Oakland and can't recommend her highly enough. She was extremely professional, enthusiastic, straightforward and highly available throughout the process. Her recommendations on staging, marketing and pricing were all spot on. In particular, her pricing strategy was brilliant. She was patient with answering all my questions, and I appreciated that she could provide solid data and examples to back up her suggestions. Thanks to Shelly, I sold my home faster and for more than I could have hoped for. Thank you, Shelly!!

      - Gary Sprague
    • 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.

      - Gail Price
    • 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!

    • 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!!!!!

      - Karen Difrummolo
    • Shelly is a terrific agent. She has helped us find a home in one of the hottest markets in the country. She has great insight and initiative - she even started a marketing campaign on our behalf. Her negotiation skills are excellent! Our search took a long time; Shelly never lost her enthusiasm and kept us going. She helped us write accurate, strong offers that were positively noticed by sellers. I w

    • 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!

      - Alexandra Trent
    • 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.

      - Julius Robinson
    • Working with Shelly was great! She is incredibly knowledgeable and has her finger on the pulse of the real estate market. She was extremely patient in answering our questions and took the time to explain all of the complicated nuances of buying a house, and with being a first time home owner was very reassuring and made us comfortable throughout the whole process. 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!

      - Kristin Kuster
    • 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!!
