Although Shannon's homepage is Home Sweet Henrico, she was familiar with all parts of Richmond that we were looking to move. She began the process by setting many expectations and would explain multiple steps throughout to keep us informed. Her responsiveness was immediate and I consider her to be exceptionally reliable, without a doubt the quickest to respond out of everybody involved in the home buying process. She did a great job of listening to both of our needs, which were quite different at times, and finding a home that combined all the must-have features we listed and most of the like-to-haves as well. Shannon showed amazing perseverance in this process. We had a specific time frame and she was diligent in showing us as many homes as possible without making us feel rushed. At the end, there was a minor discrepancy involving the blinds in the new home. When I was prepared to not bother because I was ready to sign and move on, Shannon negotiated an agreement with the selling agent to take care of us. I would and already have recommended anyone interested in purchasing a house to contact Shannon. She's great at communication, is personable, and has great integrity. I couldn't have imagined this process being any easier with any other Realtor.… L.K.
Shannon is an amazing realtor! I had no idea who she was but found her on Zillow when I was searching for my home. Even when I was ready to give up the search, Shannon persevered and called me a couple of days after I had finally called it quits. And you know what? She found my perfect house in the perfect location! Shannon is like "Radar" on the old TV series "M*SH". Before you even know what you need or want, Shannon serves it up. She is a stickler for details and totally had my back the entire process. I would highly refer anyone I know who may be in need of a Class A realtor to Shannon. -M. Bentley
Shannon is one of the hardest working realtors in the business. She gave us timely and accurate guidance through every step of selling our home. After providing great guidance, she provided us with competitive pricing information that helped us to price our house in a difficult market; we were under contract in 7 days! Beyond that, she had a great marketing strategy that allowed our house to be discovered by many prospective buyers. She used many different platforms to advertise and gain interest in our house. We immediately had an open house that yielded fantastic results! We received multiple offers and successfully negotiated a great price that both sides happily accepted. All that said, I have recommended Shannon to our friends and family and would do the same to anyone reading this review. She is a genuine, hard working individual that will go the extra mile to make sure that you are informed and are making the right decision for your situation.-M. Philips
We couldn't have been happier to have Shannon as our realtor. She was referred to us when we began our home search and it didn't take long to see why! She addressed our every concern quickly and professionally and was not afraid to "go to bat" for us when we needed her to. She was our realtor when we bought and will be our realtor when we sell!-M. Maloney
Amazing! When my husband and I met Shannon we just clicked. It was so easy to talk with her about our wants/needs and our budget. Shannon is just amazing. She went "to bat" for us on so many issues we ended up having with our new construction home. So many times I heard her say "My main job is to protect my clients". I love this about her that she was always on our side and never pushing us to just accept. Shannon was always available to answer any questions/concerns we had. We love Shannon, and not just as a realtor but now as a good friend. We will be recommending her to everyone we know. Thank you Shannon, we LOVE our new home you found for us.-Amanda M.
Shannon didn’t just help us find our home. She was there every step of the way. We found our home and closed in a little over a month. Shannon anticipated and met all of our needs and answered questions before we even asked them. She returned every email or phone call very quickly and made sure we were well informed at all times. She listened to us and made the home buying process entirely stress free. She is professional, cares about her clients and has the highest integrity. We will recommend Shannon to everyone we know.-M. Moore
Shannon is an All Star! She recently helped my husband and I buy a new home. The negotiations were tough but Shannon gave us excellent guidance and made sure that we were protected at every turn. I would recommend Shannon to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable well-informed realtor. I have already recommended her to my family and friends! She worked late and non-stop, and celebrated our final victory with us. We truly appreciate the attention to detail and the constant professionalism that Shannon provided. Thank you!-Lorraine P.
Shannon could not have been a better agent for me. She took a terrible first time home buying experience that I had through another agency and completely brought the excitement of buying a first home back to life. Shannon listened to my housing requirements and her follow-up on all aspects of the transaction was exceptional. She is a true go getter when it comes to her clients and meeting their needs and expectations. I would reccommend Shannon to all of my friends and family looking to buy or sell and will certainly use her again if the time comes around that I need to sell/buy!-Megan T.
