TEAM SHELTON MISSION:

Why Did Michelle Shelton Choose Real Estate?
Michelle began selling real estate because she was frustrated with the agents she was working with on the purchase of her own home. “The agents we worked with didn’t know anything about horse property and they didn’t see the value in the excess land…as a matter of fact, that is what they called it…..excess land, like it didn’t matter. The land can be the best part! We also had a single family home we wanted to sell. It is very common that people will either be selling their horse property and want a single family home or they want to sell their single family home and upgrade into a horse property.” This is one reason Michelle and her team specializes in single family homes as well.
What Skills does Michelle Shelton have for Real Estate?
As a top producing agent, Michelle likes to run at a fast pace. Her clients love her ability to market their home online. She does most of her own web work and has systems in place to put your home on over 1,000 websites as well as make it come up on the first page of google. This is very powerful when 92% of all home buyers start their search online. Michelle has a proven pricing strategy that other agents are not privy to and her negotiations are at the top when it comes to dealing with pushy or aggressive salespeople or investors. She has your back. She is not afraid to have a difficult conversation and actually prefers to get things out in the open through open and honest communication. If you are looking to get the most from the sale of your home, you will not be disappointed! Michelle doesn’t see the box…meaning she doesn’t think outside of it…she removes the walls when it comes to marketing your home and getting things done.
Constant Real Estate Communication
Once you are under contract you will love the constant communication and guidance that happens every step of the way. A full time assistant is there to support with the paperwork to make sure your transaction is smooth. There are many relationships that have to be forged in a real estate transaction:
- Buyers agents
- Escrow officers and title companies
Michelle’s team is highly trained to update you every step of the way. Michelle also has videos that are sent out to educate and guide you so you understand the process. When an offer comes in, she walks you through it line by line and explains exactly what you are getting into when you sign on the dotted line.
Michelle says, “I believe walking you through the contract is highly important. It is a legal document you are signing and you need to know how the process works and what you are getting into. I want my clients to know exactly what is going on every step of the way so there are no let downs or surprises.”

No matter what city you are looking to buy and sell a home in, Team Shelton can serve you. Savvy buyers and sellers know that anyone can find a home these days. With sophisticated online search tools, that is the easy part. Negotiating the deal and then navigating through all the various traps that can occur during the escrow is where the real magic happens. Make sure when you select an agent it isn’t just because of a friendship or happenstance, consciously select who you want to represent you in buying and selling your greatest asset….your home.
