Shelly was referred to me by some friends who had been singing her praises for years. So I knew when my husband and I were ready to buy a home she would be our agent of choice. It was immediately easy to see why she came so highly recommended! She is incredibly personable and amazing at her job. From the beginning she listened to everything we wanted in our new home, and really got to know us as a family to better represent our interests. When we found the home we wanted and made an offer, she remained in constant contact throughout the process and eased fears every step of the way. In addition, she has an amazing referral network and I know I can always call her with questions regarding the best broker, best moving service, best glass company. I can't recommend Shelly enough, it has truly been a pleasure working with her and she will continue to be my go to realtor!

We were moving to the Sacramento area from San Francisco and were so lucky to connect with Shelly. Since we were new to the area, we interviewed several Realtors - and from the first call it was obvious Shelly was who we wanted to work with. She listened carefully to our goals and budget. She showed us a great selection of homes and helped us find the perfect one. Shelly provided great support during the whole process and remained helpful to tie up a couple loose questions after the sale. I would HIGHLY recommend Shelly Long for her strong real estate skills and the wonderful positive energy she brings to the whole process.

Shelly Long provided superb service in handling my real estate purchase. From knowledge of the market and the process, she was very helpful and very professional in guiding me through a real estate transaction. Many aspects of the transaction were required, such as the offers on the property, the inspections, the document reviews and disclosures, working with my mortgage officer, and the closing process. She handled it all in a very efficient and professional manner, and was very accommodating in scheduling the required events. I'm very pleased with the service.

Shelly went the extra mile at every meeting to help evaluate each property properly and accurately. She guided me through the process of the purchase contract and at all times, gave her opinion and honestly answered all questions. I have referred her to several friends without hesitation.

Shelly Long was a joy to work with. She was incredibly flexible in her availability to show properties and was a wealth of information in assisting with the review of financing options. We consider Shelly the "Go-TO" gal in the business!
