"Patti, with all done and completed so professionally and so well, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and your team for the absolutely wonderful way you looked after us, took care of us, stayed in touch with us, and handled our house sale to the very end. You are a very special person and we do sincerely hope we can continue to know each other as time goes by. We love our place up here, and are busy getting settled. Please do thank Lori for us! Her organizational skills made the sell of our home in San Antonio and the transition to our new home in Fort Worth seamless. We are the president and vice-president of your fan club, so never hesitate to use us. Thanks again, and know we think you’re the best of the best."

She also has a pleasant personality and makes the experience of working with her a delightful one. Thanks again and best wishes to both you and Shelby."


Warren & Kitty Needels

"Patti Nelson helped us sell our house in Cordillera Ranch and buy a new home in the Alamo Heights area. Everything about our experience with them was positive. They were supportive in many ways, suggesting resources and ideas to prepare our house for sale, appropriate pricing, and then perceptive and responsive support during our home search. Amazingly, we sold our Cordillera house in 1 ½ days!"


Bob & Nancy Gray

"The whole process of selling our home was handled so professionally by Patti Nelson. Everything from establishing market value, setting price strategy, negotiation and final sale went smoothly and I have to add, quickly. Imagine selling your home in one week in today’s market which is what happened for us."


Scott and Jackie Anderson

Dean and Nawanda Fuller

"Sadly, we now live in a world surrounded by mediocre service. What an awesome delight to do business with a truly professional company. Looking for a "first class" Realtor®? Contact Patti Nelson."


Benny R. Cleveland, MD

Extremely Satisfied Client

"After two years on the market in Cordillera Ranch, and two Realtors® later, we hired Patti as our Realtor® to get our home sold. Due to Patti's professionalism, experience and connections, she was able to sell our house within four months. Patti did everything she said she would do and more. She was personally involved in every step of the process, and genuinely cared about us and a fair price for our home. Patti handled the entire process as a relationship rather than just a transaction. We highlight recommend Patti and her team and could not have been more pleased with their service."

Anne and Barry Renfroe

"Simply the best there is! We've both purchased and sold homes through Shelby. Her thorough assessments have helped us make the right offers and list for prices that left no money on the table and resulted in short listings! What a tremendous asset she has been for our family! She's transparent, diligent, insightful and quick to respond!"

Brian and Tiffany Korbel

"Shelby is an outstanding Realtor®; we obtained the maximum for a home that was 10.5 years old. I highly recommend her if you have a home you want to sell. Our home was on the market for 6.5 days and it was gone. Thank you Shelby for a job well done!"

Brian and Tiffany Korbel

"Shelby is an outstanding person and Realtor®. Our situation was a little unique and we required a special Realtor® with a great deal of patience, persistence, and understanding and she more than met the challenge. She worked tirelessly to find our perfect house, walked us off the ledge a few times during the due diligence process, and was the same professional, level headed, personable person every time we spoke. We would highly recommend her for anything she may choose to do in life. Live well, Shelby! You deserve it."

Don Mozingo

"Shelby helped my husband and I buy our house in San Antonio. At the time, the area we bought in was pretty new to her but that did not stop her from being the best Realtor® we could have asked for. We were in a tough situation and Shelby was there every step of the way. We looked at a lot of houses. And some we looked at a few times. She never got discouraged with us or anything in the process. We can't thank you enough Shelby for helping us through it all. We love our house and have settled in nicely. Thank you so much."

Matthew and Tanya Washburn

"Shelby is a very professional, knowledgeable and highly experienced Real Estate agent. I was particularly impressed by how much she knew about the trending downtown housing market and provided me with articles demonstrating the potential value of my investment with future growth in area. She is a great listener and negotiator, representing your best interests in all interactions. Shelby took notes at showings and ensured I stayed true to my original requirements for a new home. My home, which sold quickly as she had predicted, was faced with unpredictable setbacks yet Shelby communicated effectively with buyer’s agent the entire process. I would recommend Shelby to anyone wanting a full service and smooth experience in transitioning to a new home. She is most professional in all her dealings."

Nancy Howard

"My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Shelby when we sold our home. It was the first time we had been on the selling side but Shelby made the process very easy. Her professionalism and confidence in her craft led us to immediately trust her throughout the transaction. She is knowledgeable about all things real estate and she takes the time to guide you, step-by-step, to secure your comfort level and understanding of what is happening, or is to happen, next."

Kevin and Liz Miller

"Shelby helped us sell our home and buy a new home all in a matter of a few months. Her guidance and professionalism were the keys to our success."

Tom and Anne Veitch

"Now that the closing is behind us, I just wanted to write you and tell you how much I have enjoyed working with you and to thank you for doing such a wonderful job on the listing, marketing and contracting of my house. You have been nothing short of very responsive and helpful throughout this entire process. I would also add the marketing materials, the brochure and the virtual tour website were top notch and exceptionally impressive."
