Everything was professionally run, efficient, and very clearly laid out. Email correspondence was very helpful and quick. Shelby did a great job of answering my questions, coming up with information that I needed or hadn’t even thought I would need. I would definitely recommend Shelby.

Shelby has successfully assisted me in six real estate transactions over the last 5 years. She is highly professional, dedicated, organised, personable, experienced and always delightful to work with. She is always available and dependable, which I find crucial during any real estate transaction.
I wouldn’t use anyone else. I can highly recommend Shelby for any real estate transaction.

Downsizing at the start of a global pandemic was a challenge. Shelby’s experience and 25+ years in the business were invaluable to us. Always level-headed, strategic and thorough, she navigated the sale of our home, and the new purchase seamlessly. We were more than pleased working with Shelby, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent in Victoria. Her sophistication and global marketplace access make her an ideal choice.

You could not be in better hands than with Shelby. Shelby is knowledgeable, compassionate, honest, and caring when it comes to finding you the right home. She helped us find our dream home and we couldn’t be more thankful. She will fight for you and doesn’t give up until you are satisfied.

-Tom and Hayley Bridger


Shelby was a pleasure to work with! We strongly recommend her as a top real estate agent in Victoria. Our house search was particularly challenging since we were still living in the U.S. at the time and needed to purchase a house without being able to visit it in-person. Shelby quickly discerned what we were looking for and helped us navigate purchasing a house from afar. She immediately engendered our trust with her expertise and judgment. She was flexible and responsive, and always made herself available for virtual viewings. Shelby was very professional, positive, and supportive. She was pragmatic about real estate in Victoria, but also negotiated well on our behalf. We are grateful for her help. She found us a beautiful home in Victoria!

– Dan Belanger and Amanda Coe


Shelby always was above and beyond in looking after our needs. Very professional, knowledgeable and kind. No pretense. She went the “extra mile” without being asked to and in the end that’s what made the difference in us finding what we looked for.
