Pamela Phillips via Houzz.comRelationship: ClientProject Date: December 2014Project Price Range: more than $100,000Shelley Duke is committed to her customers! I have done two deals with Ms. Duke. When I called her a couple days before Christmas to show me a house she enthusiastically made the arrangements. The offer on the house required working through the holiday which she did without once whining - like so many do- about working. She has a great work ethic and goes the second mile for her customers. She knows and is engaged with her market. Her knowledge of the pros and cons of the local area and the key elements of real estate: pricing, location, school zones, details buyers want - and details buyers don't -make her an excellent agent for either side of the transaction. When she takes a listing she doesn't just sit on it but actually markets it using all resources to make the sale happen, resulting in success for all parties. Further, she has the best eye for guiding a client through the bumps of a real estate purchase or sale. Ms Duke also has a team with the same joy about the real estate biz. They are trained by her in her way of customer service. I recommend her and her agents for a superb outcome!
Source: HouzzcmikyskaRelationship: ClientProject Date: August 2014Project Price Range: more than $100,000Shelley worked with me for to find the right home and when we found it she was very helpful in pricing strategy, walking me through the process and was able to suggest excellent people for the various services needed when purchasing a home. I purchased a short sale home and these are notorious for taking massive amounts of time to complete. She was able to explain to me each step and what I needed to do so that everything happened in order and on time. This is my 9th house I have purchased over the years and it was a very smooth process thanks to Shelley's help and advice. For my next home purchase, I will call Shelley first and only Shelley. She was fabulous to work with and is very knowledgeable about the home buying process. I cannot emphasize enough how valuable her expertise was in getting through the home-buying process on a short sale transaction. At every turn, Shelley was available and always with sound guidance.
Shelley Duke is the best Realtor® I have ever worked with. She is very knowledgeable about the area and does her homework on each home you will see. She is very responsive and goes to bat for you. She had the right mix of allowing you to make your decision without pressure but will guide you if needed. She does a wonderful market comparison and sets a realistic goal regarding price and strategy to allow you to get the home of your dreams for a fair price. She handles all the negotiations with professionalism and is very personable. She will be with you throughout the entire process and will always make sure that you are protected as the buyer. I highly recommend her for both buying and selling a home.
Shelley Duke has gone above and beyond what any other Realtor® we've worked with ever have.She has been invaluable in the post-contract, pre-closing process, making sure everything was taken care of as it should. She is friendly and takes great pride in her work. Thank you so very much for everything!
Thank You Shelley for all your help in buying a house. You are a professional, personable and caring. You helped us with everything including getting through loan difficulties with our banks. I will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a Realtor® who will your hand through the process, explain everything in a calm and sensitive manner and answer all our questions. Shelley you are the best!
Shelley was instrumental in our first purchase of a short sale house, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. The house we wanted was days from foreclosure, and with the bank in Virginia, their lawyers in Miami, and us in Tallahassee, she successfully coordinated a long, arduous process into a successful sale by the tax credit deadline. She was very knowledgeable in short sale procedures and knew exactly what to do when issues inevitably arose. Thank you, Shelley!
We chose to work with Shelley because she had experience in working with short sales. Shelley far exceeded any expectations we had. I believe it took about 9 months to sell our house and she never stopped trying. Completing the short sale once we got an offer was an extremely long and difficult process but she never quit. She was in communication with us and the bank on a daily basis. She always made sure we were kept updated and if not for her staying on the bank the transaction would have never gone through. I would definitely recommend Shelley. She knew with our house that the commission was not going to be that great but she treated us as if we were her most important clients. I was extremely happy with her and with the job she did.
Highly likely to recommend. Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Tallahassee, FL. Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills: Patient and professional. Hardest working agent around.
