    • From first day listed to settlement, 6 weeks! Perry was available to us and provided valuable market knowledge to help with decisions that needed to be made.

      - Karen Lane
    • All around pro that makes the process simple and worry free. Perry was communicated with us every step of the way and escalated items to us immediately.

      - Colleen McCarthy
    • Perry Shackelford is a long-time, seasoned seller. I couldn't have asked for a more satisfying sell! He is anaggressive seller with a reputation for quick selling. We had moved out prior to selling and we had to worry about nothing, he regularly checked on the home, took care of all the inspections and even had a list of reputable contractors to use for repairs to get the home sold. Since we moved about an hour away all paperwork was easily handled electronically and conviently with Docusign. He is very good at keeping commuications open via the buyer's preference, in my case through text messaging. He was knowledgable in every aspect of the selling process and could answer all my questions, most importantly, in a language I could understand, no realtor mumbo-jumbo here! He is very easily reached day and night, always answering his phone or responding promptly. I was pleased with the amount we got for our home and I highly recommend Perry for the sale of your home!

    • Perry was a dream to work with, he made the selling of our home easier than we ever could have imagined and mitigated unnecessary travel on our part as we were not in the area most of the time. The whole process could not have gone any smoother.

    • When Perry and Shirley say something it gets done right away.They were excellent at the closing. They always kept me informed.The paperwork went smoothly from the beginning to the end.I cannot say enough about Perry and Shirley.

      - Walter Dec
    • Perry and Shirley were excellent in every way. They helped us get the home ready for sale. Looked after the home and saved us some frozen pipes one weekend. Kept us abreast of the interests and negotiated a good price for the home. The home also sold within a few months which we felt was great. Thank you Perry and Shirley

      - William Peterson
    • I would highly recommend Perry Shackelford, He helped me sell my home and sold it in two days. And helped me purchase another home. It was a pleasure dealing with him and his agency.

      - Mike Nolan
    • Both Perry and Shirley did a fabulous job selling my house. A complicated and tortuous sale, yet they handled it very quickly and professionally. Good job!

      - Chris Wallsgrove
    • Perry was both helpful and knowledgeable. He recommended people to do some of the repairs that were needed to sell the house. He made sure they were done right and the pricing was fair! He also sold the house very quickly! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone and would deffinitely use him again!

      - Donna Diamond
    • I recently needed to sell my mother's house and called Shirley because our paths crossed professionally many years ago. I always knew her to be extremely knowledgeable and professional. The same can be said for Shirley and Perry as a team. They make a wonderful team, they know their market, they were always available to take a call and they know how to get the job done to everyone's satisfaction.

      - Sheila Zabraski
    • Perry was great! Got our house sold within 3 weeks and around just what we were asking. Eager to hold open houses. When he says "We love Roslyn" I believe it. He truly knows the area!

      - Alexandra Grillo
    • My experience has been very good with Perry. Very knowledgeable about the area and the business. Knows what to look for in a home and fights for you every step of the way. Always responsive with every request and maintains a interest in what is best for his client. I would recommend working with him.

      - Jake Sosnovsky
    • Perry and Shirley sold our first home and helped us with the purchase of our forever home ! We were under a time crunch to sell and buy before school started back up again. Perry and Shirley were able to make it all happen with almost a month to spare ! We would highly recommend using Perry and Shirley if you are selling or buying a home !

      - Lindsay Barbieri
    • I am writing this review which I have never done before, because Shirley and Perry deserve recognition for the work they do for there clients. In my time of need with health and financial problems they were there for me. They sold my house quickly and kept me informed of the steps they were taking and dealt with the bank and other entity pushing back when the bank or other entity drag there feet, when a lot of other realtor would have move on they stuck it out. They show compassion and professionalism. To me they were my Angeles, and I will always have a place in my heart for them.

      - Russell Gaffney
    • Perry and Shirley are the gold standard of real estate agents. They were my buyer's agent for this house in '03, and my seller's agent in '16. I told Perry to price the house to sell quickly -- and I had three full-price offers at the end of the first day of showing! They knew vendors and providers for every step of preparation to sell; they talked me out of spending money on a couple of things that would not enhance the property value; and they handled every step of the sale/transfer process quickly and professionally. In other words, they're the best, and they've spoiled me for life -- I relocated, and the agents here don't hold a candle to Perry and Shirley. If you want to sell, and sell it right, better call Perry!

      - David Preisendanz
    • Perry is a true professional. He made the process of selling my home as stress free as possible with his knowledge of the business. I would recommend Perry to anyone looking to sell their home. He is very knowledgeable of the whole process and very easy to work with.

      - Doris McCarthy
    • We hired Perry & Shirley based on their reputation and visibility in our area. We knew we needed to stay in the same area and we wanted to hire a realtor who knew the area, was a tough negotiator, and could connect us with experts to make our move easy. We didn't get one realtor; we got two! We felt clueless when we began this process, but it didn't matter because Perry & Shirley know all aspects of the real estate business, including other realtors, movers, contractors, inspectors, and mortgage companies. They sold our twin in 9 days and helped us into the home of our dreams in the same area. Everyone we know who have used this pair are very happy, and we can't recommend them highly enough.

      - Kevin Teefy
    • Perry was incredibly helpful during our home buying experience. Not only was he knowledgeable and patient, but he helped us at every step of the way be it answering questions or finding solutions. I greatly enjoyed working with Perry as he was a real estate agent who does not wait for a problem to fix itself, he prefers to take action and get the ball rolling. I would definitely work with Perry again, and recommend him to any first time home buyer!! L

      - Nazee Zahedi
    • Perry and Shirley are awesome! They ASOLUTELY know what they are doing. Their knowledge of the real estate field is second to none. They listed and sold my Dad's house in a month's time.

      - John Stauffer
    • Perry was helpful and stuck with us through the entire process. Our selling and purchasing of our new home took time because we had a lot of moving parts but Perry hung in there with us. In the end our home sold in about 45 days and Perry found us a brand new home before it even hit the market. Very Satisfied

      - Yusegg Moore

      - Susan Beaulieu
    • He is very knowledgeable and understands the market knowing the kinds of buyers who are looking and the homes which are available. He follows through on prospective buyers calling them up to see where they are in the process of buying. He is very responsive when you call with a question. He knows people who can fix needed repairs which is most helpful after home inspection. He is very upbeat and positive as you go through the process.

      - Joyce Deibert
    • He responded very quickly to all of my questions and made the process as easy as I could imagine it being. He seemed very knowledgeable and experienced.

      - Robert Wolf
    • Perry was prompt, efficient and knowledgeable about all aspects of selling my home. There were delays in the settlement with the buyers and Perry kept me alerted to all the proceedings even though I had moved out of the state. He represented me at the Settlement. would highly recommend him to anyone.

      - Henry Weiser
    • Perry called me about a property that he thought would fit into my criteria. Without his diligent follow up I would have never had the chance to buy it! Thank you Perry for your hard work!!!

      - Phil Goodwin
    • I am not the first person to say, but My husband and I have had the greatest pleasure working with Perry. He is nothing but amazing at what he does. We were first time home buyers who started out with a bad agent and then I attended a Remax open house and discovered Perry. Then I knew that I had to have him as my agent. From start to finish he guided and advised us. We cant Thank him enough!!!. Perry will forever be my agent for all our house related needs. And we will continue to recommend him to everyone in our paths. We brought an amazing house in Glenside, PA and everyone that Perry recommended to us from The housing inspector down to the Home owners insurance company was amazing and spoke very highly of him. He knows exactly what he is doing and does it well!!!!!

      - Letoya Pettus
    • House was priced right to sell (offer made within a week!) Recommendations before house went on market to make it more "sellable" were well worth it! Shirley and Perry were very helpful through the entire process.

      - Donna McMann
    • Perry and Shirley are outstanding in their job as agents.Grace and I did not know them but we had a chance to meet them and highly appreciated their work and compassion to help us buy the house that was listed on our street.The first day the sign for sell was up , we just saw their name and phone number and we called them requesting to see the house.We knew that, that house was going to be sold quickly as it is in a nice area.Fortunately ,Perry and Shirley were ready to show us the house in less than 45 after we call and he really had time to listen ,to explain ,to encourage us and honestly told us about the problems of the house but also showed us how it is possible to solve those problems and make it a great home with the reasonable price. What we liked about Perry and Shirley the most was that they want the best not only for the seller but also for the buyer.From their advice we made commitment and started the process to buy that house the same day at that first appointment .And each time we will call him for more questions, they were all the time available to answer. We will keep working with them any time we want to buy ,sell or rent a house and we will recommend them to anyone else ,who is looking for professionals with compassion and empathy for their clients.

      - Jon & Grace Speck
    • When it was time to downsize we engaged Perry and Shirley because they know the Abington market. As a result of their expertise, we sold our home in four days. Everything went very smoothly as it was our first experience with a realtor in 50 years. They guided us through every step of the way.

      - Jane Clark
    • erry and Shirley really did their homework. My house was listed and closed in 4 weeks! The fast closing was a bonus. The house was on the market for approximately 1 week. They did their homework, they listened to my needs.. they made recommendations that really helped move the house quickly. They flat our know the market. I wouldn't consider using anyone else. Less

      - Ted MacDonald
    • We are so glad our paths crossed at a random Open house. Don't wait for a random Open house... Choose Perry from the start! Perry's knowledge of the locale was what singled him out to us. As first time home buyers and very green in home ownership, he was very honest and understanding and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with the entire process. We found the perfect home!

      - The Pearce Family
    • Perry and Shirley were very efficient and professional. They told us exactly what we needed to do to get the house ready to sell. The house sold in less than a week.

      - Penny Hare
    • Perry and Shirley were extremely helpful It started with us seeing their names on a sellers house. When we called to inquire about the house (We were just looking, we had no agent) he immediately made arrangements to show us the house. when we met at the appointed time, he offered to show us 5 more homes in the area once we decided that this was not the home for us. Over the course of 2 years, they were always there answering any questions, showing us houses we wanted to see and his recommendations. Even when we hit a stall in our finances and had to stop looking for a period of time, he kept in touch. We finally found the home we wanted with the help of Perry and Shirley.

      - Jim & Lisa MacFarland
    • Perry and Shirley know the market and their customer' needs. This is our 3rd home experience with them and the service level is consistent. We couldn't have done it without them.

      - Brian & Kim Michaels
    • I have worked with Perry and Shirley for many years and have bought several properties with their assistance. They bring a wonderful combination of experience and knowledge to the table. But you also get a team that is in YOUR court throughout the whole process. They are more concerned with you finding a home that will be good for you, than what they will get out of it. So be prepared for them to tell you exactly what they think of a property, because they will. I have found this honesty to be very helpful in my search for properties. They will also keep in touch after the sale with helpful advice or answers to any questions you may have. I would and have recommend them to others.

      - Gerry Campellone
    • Perry and Shirley Shackelford were "godsends" to us when we needed to sell my parents' home in Abington, PA. They met with us and gave us a good idea of what needed to be done to make the house marketable (without going overboard), and provided us with a list of recommended vendors to help with the process - all of whom were reasonable and reliable. Perry and Shirley were very hands on; willing to do what was needed to get the job done and get the house sold. They knew the area and sold the house well within the time frame they promised. These two are the ultimate professionals - I would hire them again in a minute!

      - Paul Allen
    • We worked with Perry and Shirley when we first moved to the Abington area 15 years ago. When it was time to sell and purchase a bigger home there was no question in our mind who to turn to. Again, Perry and Shirley were right on top of things with every step of our move. They are quick to respond to questions and needs.

      - Dwight Pickens
    • We lived in Maryland, our property is in Pennsylvania. So we need a reliable agent to represent us. Eight years ago, when we first moved to MD, we compared many realtor agents, chosen Perry and Shirley to help sell our property in Upper Dublin of Pennsylvania since they are so experienced in this field. They got us an offer almost immediately, but out of our own stupidity we refused at that time, chosen to rent out that property instead. So when we plan to sell that property recently, we asked Perry and Shirley again, and they did a great job, we sold our property. Perry and Shirley are so knowledgeable about the area, they are very tech savvy, and response fast, their negotiation skill is beyond my expectation. They know perfectly what need to be done on your behalf. If you are looking for an agent to buy or sell property/properties, ask Perry and Shirley, they will fulfill your wish.

      - Haiping Hao
    • Perry and Shirley have been both selling and purchasing agents for my daughter and husband on three separate occasions (yes, they move around a lot) over the last 15 years. Most recently they are moving back to PA from OK and Perry and Shirley made themselves available for me to preview properties for my daughter before they came back to home shop. On all occasions, the purchasing agreements have been so comprehensive, that they beat out all other bids for the home of their choice. On the other side as agents for the sale, they found the best buyer and got the best price. There were no details left to chance

      - Henry Fisher
    • Perry and Shirley are expert realtors. They are great negotiators and salespeople. They were even able to negotiate when our contingency purchase was in jeopardy when they were overseas on vacation.

      - Dyllan Walter
    • Perry & Shirley are just the best team and we are so happy to have worked with them not once, but three times. They helped us buy our first starter home in Abington Township. Not only did they educate us about homes and home buying, but for first time home buyers they made the process enjoyable. I think we must have gone through close to 50 homes before finding the right one. When we outgrew the house with three kids and a dog they helped us sell that house. We were so impressed with how they priced the house perfectly, got a lot of traffic/interest and sold for our asking price (after negotiation). Finally, they helped us find our second home knowing what we needed with a big family and knowing the real estate market in eastern montgomery county so well. I can't say enough about how wonderful, professional, and understanding they are with both buying and selling.

      - Donna Maxey
    • Shirley, Perry, and Andrew (Drew) were wonderful Realtors. They worked as a team to help us have the most stress free experience possible. Every person they recommended was top notch. Thank you for making what could've been a stressful experience, a wonderful one to a first time home buyer!

      - Pam Vasserman
    • Our home sold in 2 days. We moved out of state the week after listing and everything was done via phone and e-mail. Perry always answered my calls or called me right back. He even communicated with me while he and Shirley were on vacation abroad. We closed right on time.

      - Jerri Perry
    • It was a pleasure to work with Perry on the recent sale of our home, and the purchase of our new home. How likely would I be to recommend Perry? Not only highly likely, but most definitely (I have, to several of my friends). They make the process of buying and selling a home completely stress free - well,not completely stress-free, there are some things that your realtor cannot control or predict, but when those inevidible things pop up, Perry was right on top of it, and made sure that they were taken care of in the quickest way possible. Although the home we have recently purchased should be our final home purchase, if it is not, then we will absolutely be calling Perry again. Note to Perry: DO NOT RETIRE!!

      - Janet Gerney
    • Perry and Shirley helped my fiance and I buy our first home at the end of December. We were very green and they provided the information we needed to make a great decision. They showed great commitment to us to find the home we wanted to live in. Finally. the most important characteristic about Shirley and Perry's service to myself and my fiance was availability. Whenever, wherever and however we needed to contact Perry or Shirley, they were there. We had a quick decision to make towards the end of our house search. And without Perry and Shirley there to field our calls and make calls to the seller, we would not be in the lovely Jenkintown Home that we are in today.

      - Anthony DePaul
    • We have worked with Perry & Shirley for over 25 years on four to six real estate transactions. We have found them to be very knowledgeable, attentive and professional. Their attention to detail through the process was remarkable and they always had our best interests at heart. We would highly recommend their services and we refer them to anyone we can because they are that good. Over 25 years and 6 transactions we have become more than business associates, we have become dear friends.

      - Nancy Perry
    • Great person to deal with. Really knows the market! We were first time home buyers and he was very patient and walked us through the process. It was a real easy process with this professional.

      - Sander Gottlieb
    • My husband and I were first-time home buyers without an agent. We were fortunate enough to meet Perry at an open house. He contacted us a few days later and offered to take us out to see homes in the area. His experience and knowledge of the area was evident from the start. He helped us find our home in the first few times out and was incredibly helpful in guiding us newbies through the home-buying process. Equally helpful was his wife Shirley who helped work with us through all of the paperwork. Perry and Shirley work seamlessly together and made the home-buying process much easier than we anticipated. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy their first home!!

      - Maggie McCormick
    • My husband and I were fortunate enough to find Perry and Shirley by the luck of the draw. We didn't have any personal referrals for a realtor when we were looking to sell our house and buy a new one. So, we just looked online to see some reviews, and called Perry and Shirley when we received their postcard mailer (which they had been sending to us periodically for some time). Well, the timing couldn't have been more perfect for us.Perry responded to my online request for contact within an hour, and we scheduled an appointment for him and Shirley to come see our home within a day or 2. They reviewed the property and after a thorough discussion about comparables, they suggested a reasonable price to list our home.After advance marketing on their part, an extremely successful open house, and a slew of showings, we had an agreed upon offer a week after our open house. We obviously had to kick up the search for our new home! Perry and Shirley were patient and supportive, dedicating 2 full Saturdays to showing us a variety of properties. Even when I may have gotten discouraged, Shirley was always a ray of positivity.Perry and Shirley were able to negotiate the purchase of our new forever home--which initially seemed like it may be out of reach, but with their guidance and skill we were able to get the deal done. And we couldn't be happier.Of course, buying and selling a home is never easy, but the right realtor can make the experience a positive one for everyone involved. Perry and Shirley are nothing short of experts in the Abington community, as well as the wider area. There was never a property in a neighborhood we wanted to see anywhere in Montgomery County that they were unfamiliar with. Just as important, they have an uncanny sense for pricing. They are focused on pricing your property correctly in order for it to sell. There's a reason why they have such a high listing to sale price ratio, and can get agreements signed so quickly. Trust them that they're pricing your house on target and you won't be disappointed.When you work with Perry and Shirley, be sure that you're actually ready to sell your existing house and buy a new home. They don't mess around and they make things happen fast!
