“I had the pleasure recently of working with Shelly as I sold my home.
She was extremely professional and helpful in all phases of the home selling process. She communicated well, priced the home appropriately for the market, explained each step, and listened to all of my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Shelly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in San Francisco.”

“Shelly is an effective, ethical, competent, and friendly real estate agent. She is very responsive, on top of all the moving pieces, and most knowledgable. Shelly stays current, has a high energy level, is dedicated to the profession and representing her clients and well as involved with the community. Oh how I wish all real estate agents where like Shelly Sutherland!

Shelly helped us land our first TIC, and through the years, helped us with other investment property transactions (single family home and apartment complex).

My recommendation is 5 stars, top of the mark, A #1, the creme of the crop.

If you prefer working with the best, someone who has your back, who will advocate for you as if she was handling her own property, then contact Shelly. She has a finesse about her that leaves the client at ease. She has a customer and friend for life! “

“I’ve known Shelly for over 5 years, and recently worked with her on buying a new home and selling our previous place. Shelly was phenomenal throughout the process. She guided us through both processes with complete professionalism and expertise. Her recommendations proved correct at every step of the process, helping us to win a competitive home purchase and to maximize our own selling price. Beyond the actual buying and selling, Shelly also was invaluable in helping connect us to any number of other service providers — from stagers to contractors, to carpet installers, gardeners, and electricians. Shelly is supremely well connected in San Francisco and well respected by everyone who works with her and this enables her to provide extraordinary service to her clients. I would absolutely work with Shelly again…. though since she helped us find our perfect dream home, we probably won’t have that chance again for a while. :)”

“When we met Shelly at an open house, we clicked instantly with her. Because she is an investor too, she really “got it” when we discussed our real estate investment strategy. Her wide range of experience helped us in our targeting efforts and we were able to see some terrific properties. In dealing with the challenges of the San Francisco real estate market, Shelly is savvy, creative and fun to work with. We look forward to recommending her to friends and fellow investors.”

“Shelly helped us out with both selling our loft and buying our new home. She went above and beyond in selling our loft and we were very pleased with the results. She was also great to work with in buying our home. She has a very keen eye for how the specific features of a home affect its overall price. We would absolutely recommend her to our friends.”

Shelly was great to work with— overall, the entire experience for me was very easy—from the onset she gave me a very realistic viewpoint of what my house would potentially sell at and was a straight shooter about things I could expect—and came within 1.5% of my asking price.

She also showed a lot of enthusiasm for the process—and checked in often to make sure I was comfortable with everything.
