"Hopefully the fact that this is the third time we've used Shawn as our agent is assurance enough to you to know she is the best. We just bought our 3rd home since first meeting her in 2004. She's phenomenal in sales and has the track record to prove this. When she acts as your buyers agent is where I was so amazed. Her family has had close ties with being custom home builders. This along with the mountains of experience are what set her apart. She knows not only how to negotiate but what for as well. The background with builders in her family give her an incredible eye for detail. I was totally ready to just sign in on our first and second home but Shawn walked through and marked off so many things that needed adjusting or touch up etc. This was so crucial. It was a custom home that time and she demanded the quality in finished product I had no idea was expected. I assumed nothing was perfect and she informed me it's not but some things are obvious. Shawn just knows homes and what is and isn't right or up to par. There's no way anyone could be disappointed with her service. Thanks Shawn. "  Shannon Lamb

"I have had the pleasure of working with Shawn Britt and her amazing team for over ten years. Her expertise, connections, and constant communication have lead to numerous successful transactions as both buyer and seller. I whole heartedly recommend her!!!"  Linda Condon

"I have never worked with a more competent real estate agent.  Provided expert guidance during a complex, time sensitive relocation.  Would absolutely work with Shawn again."   Jim Cushman, President, Commercial & Products at Novetta

"My family and I have used Shawn for several real estate transactions. Shawn’s knowledge of the Raleigh community, together with the guidance and advice that she provides, the effective negotiating skills that she uses when dealing with other real estate agents and her ability to work with and problem solve if necessary with lenders and closing attorneys, all combine to make her the finest Realtor that I have ever been represented by. Because of her attention to every detail, her preparation and promptness when it comes to documentation, there is no other Realtor that I would want beside me at a closing other than Shawn."   Doug Garrelts of Raleigh, NC

Former seller and buyer, Doug Muhle,has worked with Shawn for nearly seven years. Throughout the course of their professional collaboration, she has continued to impress him with her professionalism and knowledge. “Initially, Shawn listed my homes throughout the Triangle Area,” he says. “Today, she is not only listing my homes but she is also handling land deals and putting together builder teams.” Muhle describes Shawn’s work ethic as “impeccable,” noting, “She has a tremendous love for the business she is in, and it shows in everything: her attention to detail, impeccable follow up and personalized service.” He adds, “She is self-motivated and goal oriented, and the recognition she is receiving as a top REALTOR® is proof of her commitment to the industry and her business.”   Doug Muhle of Raleigh, NC

Alicia says she and her husband appreciated Shawn’s proactive approach to work, noting, "She was on top of everything, usually answering our questions before we asked them. She kept communication open, returning our calls promptly and being truthful with us throughout the course of each transaction.” The Hairs, who have utilized Shawn’s services as both a listing agent and buyer’s representative, found her to be knowledgeable and helpful, and have referred her services to others.   Alicia Hair of Raleigh, NC

Previous Seller Reviews:

"CHEERS and a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to each of you for your incredible efforts on our behalf!  Thank you for handling everything needed to get the property ready for market -- we know it isn't an easy task and somehow you call in your crews and get it done like it was no trouble at all.  Amazing!  Thank you for the many scheduled showings to potential buyers that led to the quick and successful closing!  Thank you for your impressive expertise, diligence, communication, guidance and genuine care that have made the entire journey exciting and rewarding for us!!  You are the BEST TEAM ever and please know we are very grateful.  We look forward to working with all of you on listing and selling another property for us.  If we know anyone looking to buy or sell in the Raleigh area, you will be our highest and only recommendation!"  Karen and Danny Litt

"Shawn is a "go-getter" and has great experience in and knowledge of the Raleigh real estate market. She helped us to realize we had priced our home based on what we had "into it" instead of current market conditions ---a hard but needed concept we had to realize! Shawn has surrounded herself with a wonderful team of assistants. Kerri Smith and Brenda Balcome are amazing assets to Shawn's staff and are also true professionals. From the excellent photography and brochures to updating all the websites and keeping us informed on feedback from our showings, Kerri was invaluable. Brenda juggled all aspects of our closing (complicated by my husbands travel, a Corp. relo company, a tight calendar to make repairs before close, and a delay to close by the buyers to name just a few!) made the stressful weeks leading up to our closing something I wil look back on with a smile even though most of the time I was gritting my teeth! Overall, a great group of smart, talented and very nice women!" Dalene Johnson 

"My wife and I are located out-of-state and called upon Shawn and her team to assist us in selling an investment property. Despite the challenges of a 3-hour time difference and limited phone availability (on our part), Shawn's team seamlessly handled the process from start to finish. We so appreciated their responsiveness and professionalism."  Jeff

"I have worked with Shawn over the past 10 years. She has been instrumental in guiding me through investment properties, connecting me with lenders, insurance agents, and property managers. Whether I have been a buyer or a seller Shawn has been extremely responsive, realistic and professional. I would highly recommend Shawn. It is very apparent how she has earned a top professional status."  L. Condon 

Our house went on the market on February 28, 2015, it went under contract on March 21, 2015.  Shawn used all the market tools at her disposal. It was a whirlwind time. Shawn is an excellent negotiator. Within a matter of days, she worked out the best deal for us both in regards to money and closing date. She really makes it look easy as if anyone could sale a house. But it's her experience, knowledge of the market and her ability to provide exceptional service while working to make the best decision for your family. Shawn is truly a genuine and sincere person. She works tirelessly until the job is complete. I've worked with other realtors in the past and you will not find many that can provide "the Shawn Britt difference". I'm referring Shawn Britt to any homeowner who is thinking of putting their home on the market and would like a top, high quality person to represent their interest."  A.F. Tripp 

"I have now had the opportunity to partner with Shawn on a couple of real estate transactions.  I will first suggest that professionalism should be assumed since I returned to her for the second transaction, but for clarity I will say that Shawn is very courteous, responsive, and knowledgeable as you will find in many people.  Shawn has a competitive edge though.  She is more than those things!  She is fun, aggressive as anyone I have ever met and innovative.  These 3 gifts make her incredibly skilled at negotiation.  While I appreciate all of her talents, her innovation is impressive because it primarily exists in her ability to create options in a negotiation and she also creates teams in an innovative way.  When you work with Shawn you work with a team that is dangerously good for her partners!!  I have enjoyed working with Shawn and I appreciate her talents."   Jim Kurtz, Development Director at McDonald's USA

"Shawn represented my wife and I in the sale of our home in June 2013. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and is an expert negotiator. This was overwhelmingly evident when she had our home under contract for nearly full ask price within the very first day! My wife and I couldn't have been more pleased with the transaction. Shawn is the consummate professional, and I highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs. She exceeded our expectations in every way!"   Michael Getter

"I have worked with Shawn for the past five years in the real estate arena. As a new home builder, Shawn has sold many of my homes and she is always extremely professional and a delight to work with. I have been a Realtor for over 20 years and Shawn is one of the best I have ever worked with. She has an extensive following as a result of her diligence and expertise. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."   Jim Cirimele

"Thank you for all of your help! You were great to work with…and it went so smoothly, especially for such a short time frame closing! We will definitely refer you for any real estate needs that may come up for any friend or family! Thanks again."   Margaret Mills of Raleigh NC

"Shawn is incredibly reliable. From the signing of the contract to the closing date and thereafter, she is consistently on top of the details that impact the closing. She maintains excellent communication with our office, keeping us in the loop so that we can do our job more quickly and efficiently.” The end result, he adds, is that there are no surprises. “Shawn’s diligence enables us to do our part in effecting a smooth and successful transaction,” he explains. Jimmy Petrie, former Seller and buyer, I could not ask for a better real estate agent and you have my word regardless of this situation. You have a customer for life and I will gladly make sure others close to me in the local housing market have you both referred to them. Thank you again for all your help and hard work to insure my best interest. You are great."   Wray Harrison of Raleigh, NC

"I have held Shawn in high esteem for many years. She’s one of the most knowledgeable and energetic people you’d ever want to do business with, and has a strong understanding of our local market,” Rickard notes. “She is detail-oriented and conscientious of her clients’ needs, and I’ve never heard anything but accolades for the work she has done."   Micah Rickard of Raleigh, NC
