Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Crystal Ranch, Bakersfield, CA.
Shelley asked questions and TRULY LISTENED to the answers regarding preferences, needs, and lifestyle, and spoke from her experience on things we hadn't considered. We spent some time nailing down what was truly important when it comes to buying a house - of course, there's a lot of broad "givens" - almost everyone wants good neighborhood schools, quiet streets, low crime rate, etc... but Shelley asked us about kitchens (Chef's kitchen, or just room for a microwave....lol some people don't cook) which narrowed down the number of potential houses from "all kinds" (many) to the "very good fit" (a precious few) . With that filtered list, we were able to look at a about 4 to 5 houses each time (so they don't all 'run together in your mind' ). These houses fit our criteria so well that we only looked at about a dozen or so before finding the PERFECT home (we had more to look at that day, but we said "Stop! this is it!) . Even Shelley realized it the minute we walked into the front entry. as our exploration progressed, It just kept getting sweeter. Shelley took care of everything, communicated extremely well, handled the big and little bumps that go with such a transaction, and soon, we had a mortgage and a dream home. Shelley listened and found us the home we wanted, not one we would 'settle' for. Her advice is very valuable.
