“Shelley was a masterful broker from start to finish. She will treat you as a friend, not just a client. She will make your buying process, no matter how complicated, go as smooth as possible. We are so grateful that we joined forces with Shelley Welch throughout our buying and building process. I highly recommend Shelley and cain’t imagine ever working with anyone else. She’s our realtor for life!”

-Brenda R.

“Shelley helped us every step of the way. She was always willing to listen, answer questions, and find answers if she didn’t have them readily available-which was rare!). We were grateful for the knowledge she shared with us about the area, and the patience she had with us throughout the process. So grateful!”
– Candace
“I have had the privilege to work alongside Shelley in several home purchases. She is very attentive to the process and extremely attentive to the buyer. I’d say her main objective is making sure that her clients are comfortable throughout the entire process. She understands that buying a home can be stressful. With her background in social work she is able to keep her clients feeling at ease and the stress at a minimum.”
-Timothy G.
“Shelley was wonderful throughout our entire home buying process! She does an incredible job answering questions and explaining how everything works. She helped us get exactly what we wanted in a home at the price we were comfortable with. I highly recommend!”
– Cara Jo C.
“Shelley was the ideal agent; she was enthusiastic, patient, and–most importantly–honest throughout the process. As a first-time home buyer, I had a million questions that Shelley was ready to answer. Her knowledge truly shined. She took the time to listen to what I was looking for and, when we found it, she knew it was perfect for me just as much as I did. It showed that she understood me and my preferences. But what really set Shelley apart was her willingness to do what it took. I was looking at buying a condo in downtown Raleigh. Because these go so quickly, you have to always have an eye out and move at the speed of light. When one posted on Zillow (on a Saturday!), I reached out to Shelley and she met me within the hour to view it. She then worked dilligently over the weekend to make the offer and negotiate the conditions. In fewer than 24 hours, she closed the deal. I’m now living in my dream place because of her. Thanks, Shelley!”

“We closed on a house in Durham under challenging conditions (to put it mildly) during our home buying experience. Without Shelley and her constant attention, guidance, and level-headedness, we wouldn’t have made it to the finish line”
