Clients are saying:

"If I’m being honest, this is a challenging review to write. It’s difficult to wholly articulate Shaun’s superior service and how his diverse skill sets have benefited our family’s home purchases for the last 15 years without turning this into a seven-page summation.

Apart from his reputation as one of the top real estate professionals in the region, Shaun brings a broad knowledge of first-class home building/remodeling and inspection support that he draws from his family’s businesses. Like most, when my husband and I walked into a home and fleetingly observed the aesthetics of the space, Shaun directed his attention to the more critical components of home – the foundation, possible sinkage in the backyard, electrical, an evaluation of the sump pump, the true condition and lifespan of the appliances, etc. Let me tell you, what a buzz kill to fall in love with a home only to have Shaun grab us by the shoulders and tell us to run for the hills because it showed early signs of a crippling foundation that would become an eventual money pit. Only now am I grateful for Shaun’s insistence that we refocus our attention to other houses on the market, because it led us to our forever home.

The process of home buying can oftentimes be a whirlwind of exhaustion, disappointment and also the inevitable: forced patience (a trait in which I am severely deficient). Had it not been for Shaun’s calm and collected determination that we continue to search for the best home, even when we thought we had located it, we wouldn’t be where we are today in a space we will surely remain for many decades.

As we entered conversations with the seller’s agent, Shaun was a consummate cheerleader and counselor to ensure we put our best foot forward in the negotiations, and did so with grace and integrity. I’d liken him to a protective big brother but also the knowledgeable dad who will only settle for what’s best for his “kids.”

Shaun, please trust how much we will forever appreciate your guidance, time (so much time!) and willingness to knowledge-share, which brought us to this place we can only call home because of you. We are more grateful than you’ll ever know.
