"In selling a home , we found there is more to the process than relying on a reasonable list price and the MLS. Once the showings began, Shelly helped us understand what prospective buyers like and equally important what they didn't like ( but we could inexpensively address) about the property. Feedback from her was very regular. Things like "we are hearing room color as an objection, paint is cheap, let's try to make this objection go away" She coordinated tradesmen, painters, stagers, to help sell the property at a fair price in a rather difficult real estate market. Shelly took a large portion of the burden off of us, making the process very managable." -Keith D., Carmel, In
"Highly recommend going with Shelly. I moved out of state during the sale of my home and she helped to make the process painless, even helping with staging the home and making recommendations for improvements to help sell it faster. All in all our house was back on the market for less than a week before we had an offer." -Brian R., Carmel, In.
"Shelly helped me in listing, marketing, staging and selling my home and in the entire moving process. Shelly sold our house faster than we expected. Shelly wasted no time in preparing our home for the market. I had no plans to do half of what she recommended to get my house ready for the market. Most of the things Shelly recommended were of minimal cost. The nice thing is she had a handiman, plumber, painters and movers ready to go. All of her recommendations were affordable, professional, punctual, and dependable just like Shelly. When Shelly got through staging my home I was almost unsure if I wanted to leave! Long story short, she sold my house in 3 weeks and for a little more than I thought it would sell for based on my observations in the neighborhood. Shelly must have been more confident than I was in selling my home because I thought we would be in limbo for 4-5 months or longer. Shelly had a good selection of homes that met our criteria for viewing and we placed an offer within 2 weeks of our house being sold. I think we got a good deal and I think I could have made an expensive mistake without her." - Catherine C., Carmel, In.
"Shelly did an excellant job! With the many ups and downs of dealing with a HUD home, she was patient and stern with dealing with getting the answers I needed. She answered every question I had from the beginning to the end of the transaction. She is a very knowledgable agent and taught me a lot about the home buying process. The service was by far, everything I expected and more. She talked to me as a friend rather than a customer and is one of the best people I have ever worked with and will be recommending her to anyone I know in the process of their home search."- Dustin K., Indianapolis, In.
"Shelly did not give up on us on selling our house which was a difficult house to sell. She worked hard to market and sell our lakefront home. Shelly helped stage our house, made recommendations on paint etc. She listed our home on many websites and publications. We made a friend and will definitely be recommending her to our family and friends. We have just one word for the overall process. GREAT!" - Ray & Cheryl S., Nineveh, In.
I began working with Shelly after doing an extensive internet search for a reputable and responsible real estate consultant for selling my home. Shelly "contacted" me, as I had my house up as a For Sale By Owner. She impressed me and I decided to list with her. She has wonderful advice on improvements and staging and definitely went above and beyond my expectations with the staging of my home. Many times she came to turn on lights and fireplaces for showings. This is the third home I have sold. She is a wonderful agent. I found her to be very helpful and a great communicator. I can think of nothing she could have done any better and I would highly recommend her to family and friends." -Roy M., Carmel, In.
"Throughout our listing and selling experience, Shelly was consistently thorough, prompt, and professional. Internet exposure, tracking and viewing statistics were by far above and beyond our expectations." - Jeff and Kristen B., Nineveh, In.
"Our recent home search and subsequent purchase was the best experience we have had and we owe that to Shelly's efforts. This was our 3rd home to buy and we have used several other agents locally and in other states. Shelly by far worked harder than any we had used before. Using the internet to search for properties and inundating Shelly with potential places, she researched all and provided us with keen insight regarding them and possible isuues with the areas. We always felt Shelly was truly working as a buyers agent. She always responded to our calls and emails timely and even called the county government to research possible issues with a property and new roads proposed. If you want an agent who will work for you and keep your interests at heart , then call Shelly Walters." - Jeff T., Carmel, In.
"We found Shelly to be one of the most professional, personable, and knowledgable, agents to work with in purchasing our new home! Being very inexperienced with the entire real estate process, we relied on Shelly in all the aspects of the home buying. She never disappointed us or made us feel like we were intruding on her time. We found her to be very organized, an excellant communicator, and eager to put forth more effort in helping us with this transition than any previous real estate agent we had contacted. She took the time to set up the appointments that were needed with contractors and third party service providers for all the work that was needed and kept us updated throughout the entire process. She has our lifetime business for any of our real estate needs and we will eagerly refer her to our family and friends." - Candy C., Carmel, In.
