"Shelly was very knowledgeable about how to bid in the Bettendorf Market. She has technical knowledge of the home improvements and what items may be an issue She also helped me to look at things that could be improved at a later date. I got a beautifully updated home, that backs up to a park in Bettendorf and close to the bike path, with almost nothing to paint, Thank you Shelly!"

She answered all my questions and was very knowledgeable. She even went as far as to help us with the interior design choices in our new home. I highly recommend Shelly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, she knows what she is doing!"
