"I highly recommend Shaunna to any one in the process of listing their house for sale. She brings invaluable knowledge of the area along with understanding of home staging and market value.
I listed my house with another agent, but it did not sell for a year. After that I contacted Shaunna as she was one of the two agents I had narrowed down to for listing the house. She provided recommendations for improvement as well as staged the house, which led to sale in 3 months that also during winter months.

Shaunna was helpful during the negotiation process and was very responsive throughout the entire process.
I highly highly recommend her! She will be the key for your house to be sold!"

"Shaunna was able to help us sell our house in a very difficult market. It had been many years since we sold/bought a home, and she was able to guide us effectively through the process, and was infinitely patient with us when we became concerned and frustrated with staging, showings, etc. She provided guidance and the benefit of her experience, and was always available to bounce ideas off of. In the end, we were able to sell our home in a reasonable amount of time for our area, and are very glad we chose her as our realtor."

"Shaunna Burhop is an excellent realtor. Her knowledge and understanding of the current real estate market in our local area is very impressive. She was instrumental in the preparation and staging of our home prior to the active listing. Anytime we contacted Shaunna with a question, she was extremely helpful. Shaunna always responded in a timely fashion if she was unavailable at the moment and we had to leave a message. Previously, our house was on the market for 6 months with another realtor. When we hired Shaunna as our new realtor and properly prepared our home, the very first showing resulted in an offer, acceptance, and a sale. My wife and I are very impressed by Shaunna's expertise and genuine concern for her clients."

"Shaunna is amazing! We have now bought and sold 4 properties (2 sales & 2 purchases) with Shaunna over the past 8 years. Every experience has been stellar. From her pre-sale plan that included staging to negotiating contracts, to helping us through an appraisal appeal, to finishing the deal with a smooth closing, Shaunna went above and beyond in all aspects of her services. We really feel that the preparation she put into getting our homes ready for the market were the largest factor in getting them under contract so quickly (one at full list price within a week during the holidays, the other within a month). On our purchases, we had specific requirements for location and a contingency to sell, which Shaunna handled expertly and negotiated even when working under challenging circumstances. Every stressful hiccup that arose was met with Shaunna's calm demeanor and a plan to address any issues to move forward.

In addition to her expertise with managing our specific sales & purchases, Shaunna is also very knowledgeable about the area, what features are desirable for buyers and what will be valuable for resale. Once under contract, she was able to provide us with excellent referrals for an attorney, inspector, mortgage broker, and any other professional that we needed. It saved us time and energy trying to track down referrals from other sources and every one was just as diligent and responsive as Shaunna. She has built an excellent network of professionals to serve her clients.

We cannot thank Shaunna enough for guiding us along our housing journey and helping us find the perfect forever home for our family! We would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent."

"Worked with Shaunna to sell my home and purchase another property. She did a great job getting my home ready for sale by staging the home and getting professional pictures taken. She was always available to answer questions and discuss any issues that came up through the sales process. Highly recommend."
