Keeping it simple, keeping it real!
When I think about the things that are important to me, home comes top of mind. For me, my home offers safety, security, sanctuary, pride of ownership and a wealth building tool for the future. I have 16 years experience as a REALTOR® in the Grand Valley and I am constantly striving to serve my clients with value and dedication. Below my bio video you will find a list of testimonials my amazing clients have written after working with me!
In addition to servicing both buyers and sellers through many life changes over the years, I am also a Certified Distressed Property Expert. I helped dozens of homeowners avoid foreclosure after the market crashed in 2008 through successful short sales. Although today’s market is completely different than the crash of 2008, we are beginning to see distressed properties become real to our market again after COVID-19 affected many with job loss, illnesses, and more. And for many, there has been a negative impact after taking the forbearance option offered during the COVID pandemic. I want people to know there is hope and that foreclosure is not always imminent. Our current market conditions can support another option in most cases and I can help you understand what options you have. Feel free to reach out to me if you or someone you know finds themselves in this position and you don’t know what to do.
When working with me, you will find I am genuine and dedicated to your success. Whether you are selling the home that has comforted you for years or are searching for your dream home or an investment property, my goal with you is not transactional, but rather to earn your trust and build a relationship that lasts long after closing. And all along the way I keep it simple and I keep it real!
“We were very happy with Shelly. She is very professional and unlike most realtors, she
didn't push us to accept her ideas, nor did she need to talk to fill in the empty spaces
(rare in a realtor). Instead, she answered questions, gave us advice when asked and
listened to us. When it was time to negotiate and complete the deal, she was golden.
Can't recommend her enough. But don't choose her if you expect lots of talking about
unimportant stuff and being forced into something. That is not Shelly. Just the opposite
and in all the 30+ years we have used realtors, probably the best!”
-Tom & Mary, 2022
“We worked with Shelly while searching for a condo in Grand Junction, CO. My
husband and I didn’t know the area well so it was really helpful to have the insight of an
experienced real estate agent as well as resident. Our transaction was smooth and
painless and we owe it to Shelly for her kindness, patience and professionalism!”
-Zach & Melissa, 2022
"I don’t know where to begin. We have known Shelly for some time now and when I
made the decision of a lifetime to sell our home and relocate, she was right there for us.
Shelly has been such an important part of our life and has made this journey absolutely
peaceful and amazing. It’s never easy for change at times, but having the right person
by your side to guide and calm you is so very important and Shelly has done that for us!
She found the perfect buyer and things fell into place from there. I will never forget this
journey and will always be forever grateful to Shelly for making our dreams come true.
Shelly, I thank you again you are amazing and work so hard , your guidance and support
will forever be in our hearts.
“The process of building my forever home was a long yet gratifying and exciting experience.
Shelly's level of professionalism and care was top-notch. I felt with every step of the process
she sincerely had my best interests as her focus.
She was patient with all of my questions and extremely knowledgeable.”
“If I could only describe what we put Shelly through in our search for a house ! At every
turn we asked for something special and then something more and every time Shelly
not only responded, but had almost always anticipated our questions and requests in
advance and had already done the necessary research. Whether finding lost property
covenants and encumbrances from 1947 or identifying foundation analysis engineers,
Shelly was there. Shelly was professional, friendly, easy going and more importantly,
very knowledgeable. She knew the area, she knew the market, she shared this
knowledge and helped us find a house we loved. Never did she try to push us into a
house we didn't want. She focused on our satisfaction and in the end, she found a
house for us that we loved so much we made an offer on the spot and now that we live
here, we love it even more ! We cannot thank Shelly enough for her dedication, follow
through, and outstanding commitment. We are grateful and lucky to have worked with
such an exemplary professional. We like our house so much we will probably not get to
use Shelly's services anytime soon, but I strongly recommend her to anyone looking for
a new place to call home.”
“Shelly Cross helped me at a time when the Real Estate Industry was very challenged.
She found the best solution for me which allowed me to reach my goal. She went out of
her way when she needed to and gained my trust which for myself, is a very key
component. I strongly recommend Shelly as I am certain that you will benefit from the
same qualities which I have.”
