{Working with Shaunte made life so much easier as we were selling and buying a home at the same time. As some may know that stress in itself is hard to juggle. Shaunte made the experience go as smoothly as possible, always available to answer our questions and concerns. Her work ethic is by far the best out there. She always made us feel like we were her priority client. In the future Shaunte will always be our first choice in future reality transactions.
{Shaunte is an amazing realtor! She listened carefully to our needs and helped us find the home of our dreams. Through the long process of closing on our previous home, she stood up for us to ensure we held onto our home. Shaunte expertly negotiated with the sellers to have repairs completed in full. After closing, she provided us with a network of professionals to complete projects in our new home. I highly recommend Shaunte!

{From start to finish Shaunte is simply the best. She is knowledgeable about each home and pays attention to details. She pointed out things we did not even think about. We did not have to ask for really anything because she provided us with everything we wanted and more when it came to the homes we were interested in. When It came to inspections she connected us with the best and was willing to be at any appointment we could not make. Shaunte will make sure you get the house you love with her seamless process. I cannot say enough good things about Shaunte, she is just simply wonderful. We will be using and recommending Shaunte 100% and you should too!
