What Clients Are Saying

Shevawn and her team worked very hard to help us sell our house; they went above and beyond to ensure our house was getting attention! This was my first experience in selling and Shevawn was very detailed in explaining the process and made everything feel easy and seamless!

Tracie H.

Shevaun sold our home within 48 hours at a price with which we were happy. Do I need to say more? She is more impressive than we ever expected and we recommend her to anyone who asks. Our experience with Shevaun could not have been any better!

SUSAN B.

"The Process was Seamless"

We used Firefly Realty to buy our new home & sell our old one. The process was seamless. Shevawn was professional & quick with any questions we had. She worked hard to be sure everything was done in a timely manner. Once we were in our new home & found a latent deficiency she took care of it with ease. We always felt our best interest was being considered every step of the way. We definitely recommend the Firefly Realty team!

Tara B.

Shevawn worked for us as the buyers and the sellers. She negotiated a price that was fair and agreeable to us and the sellers. She was extremely knowledgeable about the local area and helpful during the entire process.

"Less Stressful & Much More Profitable"

If you're thinking of selling your home by owner - PLEASE take a minute and give Shevawn a call. Not only did she make the process of selling our home stress free & easy, even after paying commissions, I brought home much more $ than I would have by selling it myself. With her knowledge of the market along with her contacts & marketing team, she can make your sale less stressful & much more profitable.

"Knowledgeable & Professional"

From the first contact to our closing, Shevawn was knowledgeable & professional. She led us through the listing process and communicated with us with every showing & with each stage of the process. I would highly recommend Shevawn to sell your property or to assist you in the purchase of a new home.
