Shane Hunter
Coho Realty
About Shane

I began my real estate career with the belief that people should be educated, not just blindly led, through the process of buying or selling their home. Helping someone grow in their knowledge base and become a partner during the transaction is one of the biggest keys to making sure someone is truly satisfied with that end result. Everything we do is tied to what your goals are for today and for the future. When clients have the proper information, preparation, and motivation, it is incredible to be a part of them reaching, and even surpassing, their goals.

Michelle Shones
John L. Scott Real Estate
About Michelle

Whether you are buying or selling a home, Michelle would be honored to have the opportunity to earn your business and help you achieve your dream. Michelle grew up as part of a close knit family in Alaska where she learned to love the outdoors and some basic values that have followed her through life. Respect others, share what you have, know who you are, accept what life brings and have patience. It's these values that gave her the courage to move to California and eventually Virginia, miles away from everything and everyone she knew. She spent 12 years in Virginia enjoying the warm Atlantic Ocean and managing a commercial property portfolio for a small investment firm. She excelled in her ventures, increasing profits and growing a name for herself. While Michelle enjoyed her time and experiences in Virginia, she missed her family. She decided to sell her house and move to Oregon. Michelle soon realized she made the right decision as it felt like she had found her true home. Michelle's aunts, uncles and grandparents have lived in Oregon most of their lives. Her late grandmother was a real estate broker in the Willamette Valley for over 40 years and her other grandparents owned the "Shones Gas for Less" in downtown Independence since 1961. As Michelle was settling into Oregon life she found that she still had a desire to improve herself and find a new career path. With her commercial management background, real estate was an easy choice for her. She decided to set a goal: to follow in the footsteps of her late grandmother by providing the best home buying and selling experience. Michelle Strives to find the perfect property for each of her clients whether it's a great investment or a place to raise your family and call home. Michelle is here to help you find the house of your dreams or that once-in-a-lifetime investment.

Aj Lape
HomeSmart Realty Group
About Aj

My name is AJ Lape, I got my Oregon Brokers License in 2012 and work at HomeSmart Realty in Salem, OR. I work in the Willamette Valley; primarily around the Salem / Keizer and surrounding area, but have gone out further when necessary. Like most Realtors I’ve closed a variety of interesting deals since I started this career. From small repossessed homes for investors to large beautiful horse properties and everything in between. What I enjoy doing the most though, is listing new properties on the market and working with veterans and first time home buyers. I really enjoy educating them about the process and what’s available to them. Speaking of listings, if you are a seller then you should call me now to see just what services that I provide to my sellers as a standard. You are unlikely to find them anywhere else. I’m currently a Sophomore at Lane Community College. I’m getting my Associate of Applied Science in their Flight Technology program.

“Dewey and her amazing team did a spectacular job selling my home. I no longer lived in Salem and she took care of everything. Great communication, great connections with trades experts to get my house in great shape to sell, and super fast in getting everything done. I highly recommend Dewey and her team!“

"My husband and I live in Las Vegas and need to sell a property we owned in Medford Oregon. Due to the fact that we were not available to coordinate the various activities, this "burden" fell to Randy. He took care of everything and went above and beyond. We wholeheartedly recommend HomeLight to anyone needing the services of a real estate agent."

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Independence?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Independence?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Independence?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
