What Clients Are Saying

“I just wanted to give you a quick note to thank you for your help with the recent sale of one our homes in West Seattle. I have worked with many real estate agents over the last 25 years, selling 100s of homes and you have provided more service than all the other real estate agents. As I’ve already mentioned to you, I was extremely impressed with your consistent professionalism. You always returned every phone call – and promptly I might add! It’s sad to say but that is not always the case. You took the time to drive me to all the comparable homes to determine a fair price for this home. Your website was a great sales tool to draw buyers. Then, when the sale was finalized, you helped secure repair professionals at reasonable prices to complete the transaction. I will be recommending you to any of my friends who might be looking for a realtor. Thank you again!”

“We had the chance to work with Shelby White as we put my father-in-law’s house on the market last fall. Shelby did a walk through with us and had many suggestions for cosmetic updates to get the house ready to sell. Our family worked very hard to accomplish each one and were amazed at the outcome. Shelby would stop in, off and on, during the process and encourage us. He taught us a lot about real estate and answered all our questions. Then, just before we put the house on the market, he took us out to view other comparable homes in close proximity to our house. Together, we then set a fair asking price, and we nailed it!! We got an offer during the first open house. We had to do some negotiation, and fix some things after the inspection, but the house closed in 45 days. A miracle in today’s market. Thanks so much Shelby. We really enjoyed the process.”

Mike and Jody Coulston

“When I made the decision to return to West Seattle and purchase a new home – there was only one realtor that I wanted to work with. Shelby has extensive knowledge of the area and is a long time West Seattle resident so I knew that he would be able to take my long list of wants and needs and find me the perfect home.

He did not waste my time showing me things that were outside of my price range. When he had homes to show me – he had previewed them so that he was sure they were something that I might consider rather than parade me through house after house hoping to find one that met my needs. As a busy professional, it was very important that the limited time I did have to tour houses was spent wisely.

I have recommended Shelby to many of my friends and will continue to do so. I always have one of his business cards in my purse to pass on. Finding the right realtor that will take you through the process and listen to you is more valuable than I can say.”

Barbara Hjelmstad

“Shelby White is a fantastic realtor. He listened to exactly what I wanted and found the perfect house for me. He knows the West Seattle housing market like the back of his hand. For a major investment like this, it’s important to have a realtor that you trust. When my transaction ran into a bit of trouble, he was very proactive about solving the problem and was with me every step of the way. I would highly recommend Mr. White to anyone interested in buying a house in West Seattle.”
