I know your home is not a number on the mailbox and not just a building. It is a place to grow, to love, and to learn. I wake up every day and get to help my clients with their homes by solving problems, providing advice and education, and making a complicated process more enjoyable. My daily goal is to help you reach yours, this is why I am in business.
Raised in a real estate family, I have been working in the business since the early 90’s. I started as an unlicensed assistant for Sandy Garner, then took a few years off to raise my family, and returned to real estate as a licensed agent in 2002. In January of 2017, I became a co-owner of the business, with Sara LaFaver and Erica Davis and I’m very excited to grow Harcourts The Garner Group together.
This background has allowed me to become one of the top producing agents in the Bend real estate market for both new construction and total residential sales. Last year I was blessed to achieve the #5 Sales Agent for Harcourts USA in 2016.
Born and raised in Central Oregon, I consider the region’s culture an integral element of my life. I believe in giving back to the community I love and am active in community affairs. I am a member of City Club of Central Oregon, The Bend Chamber and an alumnus of Leadership Bend Class of 2016
With my husband Dan, I enjoy fishing, reading, swimming, travelling, and spending time with friends and family. I have two fantastic kids, Lindsay and Ben, and a wonderful daughter-in-law Sarah Jo. Lindsay and Sarah Jo live here in Bend and are also in the family real estate business. Ben is up in Seattle attending college.
Through my career, I have earned the following professional designations : NAR Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), GREEN broker, and Earth Advantage Broker.
Shelley’s commitment to client satisfaction has resulted in repeat business, referrals and testimonials. Some condensed testimonials:
• “Her knowledge of Bend and the surrounding area is amazing. She gave us the time we needed to tour many potential locations and listened carefully to our feedback. Her thoroughness before and her follow-up after the sale were beyond our expectations. We highly recommend her.”
• “Shelley helped my wife and me purchase our first home in the Bend area. We felt the entire way through that we were her only priority even though she is very busy with many clients. We really look forward to purchasing our next home down the road and Shelley will definitely be the Realtor we hire.”
• “Sales is mostly about the person, and you were the person we fell in love with. If we could use you for all of our transactions we would.”
