"It was a pleasure to work with Sheila Burns. Sheila is a consummate professional and was attentive to my needs and concerns. Sheila is a great negotiator and moves very quickly without being pushy."



"Sheila was phenomenal. She filled every need immediately and was always responsive. Her negotiation skills are excellent. She always follows up and stays in contact through the entire process. Sheila is simply the best!"



"Sheila was great to work with - very knowledgeable and professional. She moved our home quickly while meeting our needs and goals. Highly recommend!"


"Sheila’s help with process of buying and selling our house was absolutely outstanding. She is very knowledgeable and pays attention to every detail that helps to bring the house to the “selling” state. She provided the service of a stager who helped us with main staging and also with fine tuning, and a photographer.
We highly recommend Sheila’s services for any house transaction (buying or selling) and we would go with her again without hesitation."



"Sheila provided excellent service. She is very responsive to my calls and inquiries and provided several value added services that other realtors didn't offer."



"Sheila Burns was very upbeat and Friendly. Our house had 3 offers in 1 week and it sold Quickly! She marketed it well and I am happy with her services."



"Sheila made the process of buying our first home as simple as possible. She was patient with us as we found a house that fit our specific needs and requests. In the end, we ended up with the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood. Sheila made the negotiation, inspection, and the paperwork processes stress-free for us first timers. Her knowledge and expertise ensured we got the home we wanted. Every aspect of buying our house was handled professionally and with the utmost attention to detail. I would recommend Sheila to anyone buying or selling real-estate. I have already referred her to family and friends, all of whom have been pleased with her service."



"Sheila worked very hard to sell my property. She kept me informed and helped me make good business choices to move the property in a bad economy. She was always positive and followed up with relators who showed the home."



"Sheila was my real estate agent when I bought my first home. She was very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. I was especially grateful for that since everything about purchasing a house was new to me. I looked at many, many houses before finding the right one. Sheila was always willing to show me more houses and did so cheerfully and enthusiastically. When I found the house I eventually purchased, Sheila explained what I needed to do and when, and followed up with me to make sure that I met critical deadlines. During the time that the home inspection issues were being negotiated I had to travel out of town for business and was largely unavailable. There were some sticking points between the Seller and I which were made worse by the fact that my attorney did not do a very good job of handling the process. Sheila stepped in to handle those issues, working with the seller's agent to come up with a solution that satisfied everyone and saved the deal. I strongly recommend Sheila as an intelligent and attentive agent who works very hard for her clients."



"Sheila was extremely helpful and proactive. Once she understood our needs she aggressively insured that our interests were met. We were buying a home remotely and she was our eyes and ears. She went to several homes and made extensive video recordings, she met vendors at the properties for project estimates and she eagerly help with each and every one of our questions. Her support has gone beyond the sale. Sheila continues to respond to text messages about best places to eat or dog grooming, etc. She also has helped us get several rounds of questions answered by the original sellers well after the sale. She is really second to none!"



"Sheila takes the worry out of selling and buying homes. She sold my house within a month, then quickly was on the ball and locked up a new house for us that had only been on the market for 1 day. She organized both closings on the same day, one in the morning, and the other in the afternoon.

The new purchase was handled flawlessly and I never even knew of all of the issues Sheila had to work around...she handled all of them before they became major issues and before they required my attention.

The long short of it is that Sheila will work as hard as anyone in the industry on her buyer/seller's behalf. She should be your first and only call if you're in the market."



"We bought a home from Sheila in Spring of 2014. She got us in to see a house the same day it went on the market and the same day we called her. We put an offer in and she helped us make the smartest decisions with the transaction. We will call her with any real estate needs and I highly recommend her!"



"Sheila is helping me to sell my house due to my relocation. I feel very lucky to choose her as my broker to sell my house.

First of all, Sheila chose a good stager and a good photographer for my house before listing. The great pictures attracted many potential buyers and we got a great number of showing the house.

Secondly, Sheila is very impressive and has excellent communication ability between seller, buyer, attorneys, and even HOA people. For my case, HOA did not response properly which really delayed all the process. The attorneys, the buyer, even myself tried many times to call the HOA but cannot reach them. Sheila did a very good job to reach the HOA manager finally and helped us get the document we needed for closing. Besides this, Sheila also did an excellent job to communicate with the buyer and the buyer's lender. She helped me figure out the closing date from the buyer's lender (it has been delayed for a long time due to the HOA and the buyer's lender process).

Thirdly, Sheila answers phone calls and responses to text messages and emails very quickly. She is very professional at her job and makes me feel very confident with her.

Overall, I really recommend Sheila for your house selling or purchasing. Her excellent communication ability can help you solve a lot of potential problems and make the whole process go much smoothly."



"Sheila was outstanding from initial contact through final closing. She was extremely helpful with all questions and very prompt with follow up responses. Great knowledge and experience in the industry, providing attention to detail on key items throughout the process. Would recommend to friends and family."

"Sheila went well above the requirements typical for a buyer's agent. She made sure we found the property for which we were searching even though we made things difficult by being more than a 1000 miles away during the house hunting process. She made our buying experience so much easier by being our 'local advocate'. She communicated effectively, regularly and confidently. She stated her opinion opening, advised willingly and simply shined in all that she did for my family. I cannot say enough about the quality of her work ethic, her expertise and her willingness to go above and beyond. Thanks Sheila!"


""Sheila worked with my schedule and was always very accommodating. Her punctual and prompt replies eased my concerns throughout the buying process. When issues came up with the house I was purchasing, they were quickly resolved, often even without my knowledge. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell as she also sold our house within 1 month listing.""



""Sheila is an enthusiastic and responsive agent. She is knowledgeable about the Lake County real estate market and was a pleasure to work with!""



"" My first time home buying experience with Sheila this past year was outstanding and so smooth. Her knowledge of the area and my options helped a great deal. Although I had been in the real estate industry for many years I didn't realize the kind of questions that would come up when you're on the buyers end. Sheila answered all my question and made me feel confident with my home buying decision. She's a great negotiator and took her time to explain what parts of my home needed negotiating. Thank you Sheila, you made my first home purchase very pleasurable""
