I understand the sense of feeling overwhelmed when it comes to relocation. After my husband graduated from dental school in Houston, we moved to the Washington DC area and began the life of a military family. My kids changed schools numerous times and I became quite adept at organizing for relocation. From Washington DC to Washington state and everywhere inbetween, our family moved many times before returning to our beloved home state of Texas to live.
I have prior real estate experience in Sugar Land and in Houston. I have lived in San Antonio for the past 13 years and am experienced with the San Antonio residential real estate market.
I love meeting people from all walks of life and backgrounds, educating the newcomer regarding our area, and am compassionate toward clients regarding the complex issues of relocation.
As a broker, I represent individuals seeking to sell or purchase a home whether a resale or a new construction home from a builder or developer. I am committed to excellence and exacting standards of honesty and integrity.
My husband and I enjoy volunteering in our community, are active in our church, and enjoy travel and family life.

What Do Former Clients Have To Say About Shirley's Services
Shirley, I would like to thank you on behalf of Judy and myself for the truly outstanding service you provided to us in locating and purchasing a new home in San Antonio. Your knowledge of the city enabled us to identify and purchase a home here that meets all our needs. I know it is very hard to help out of town clients as we counted upon you to help us find the right home in the right neighborhood and price range we were looking for. You were so service oriented and caring I would like to highly recommend you to future clients that have a real estate needs in the Alamo City and local area. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did to make our search easy and enjoyable as after several days of searching you never gave up and had patience beyond approach. You and your husband Stephen made our home hunting experience enjoyable and exciting and one of the best real estate experiences we have ever had in more than 40 years of home buying. We will always be grateful and honored to have used you as our Real Estate Agent.
Shirley Parks is my REALTOR®. Shirley had buyers and was in the process of finding them the right home & location. We had a "For Sale By Owner" (FSBO as Shirley called it) sign in my front yard. Shirley called our number and asked if we would work with her if she had a buyer interested in our home. I said "sure". Later, after she previewed our home, she made an appointment to bring her buyers to look at our home and after several days she brought us a offer and we negotiated a contract with which everyone was happy.
Since the sale of my home we have used Shirley "my Realtor" to sell an aunts' home in Castle Hills and parents' home in MacArthur Terrace. In addition to selling the three homes for us she also found a home for one of my co-workers. We recommend Shirley to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I have enjoyed working with Shirley for the last 6 months. I had in my mind when I contacted her back in January exactly the type of home and the location in San Antonio that I wanted. My time frame was to have the house I wanted and ready to move in by the end of July. You know what, she found the perfect home with the right price ($475,000) and we made a deal. I am moving this week.
Thank you so much for all your help today, you and your husband really made this experience quite pleasant...I was expecting to be overwhelmed by the whole thing, but I felt extremely comfortable and very relaxed about going through with this. I'm definitely going to recommend you to anyone I know that is buying a new home.

I first contacted Shirley in February 2007 during my search for a home in San Antonio. I found Shirley to be very professional and knowledgeable. Since buying the house, I have hired Shirley to manage a rental house for me and I will use her services for any future real estate transactions. I will also recommend her to any of my friends.
