My Story & Experience

Shannon's ability to create meaningful connections with people and her passion for art, design, and communication have been central themes throughout her life. 

Before entering real estate, Shannon worked as a top art dealer at a San Francisco gallery, curating fine art collections for prestigious clients. She also held major corporate human resources roles at the global PR firm Edelman and the advertising firm BSSP.  

As the daughter of both a lifelong commercial broker and a salesman, Shannon grew up with a propensity for real estate. Today, Shannon's clients value her trustworthiness, calming nature, and ability to manage every detail while navigating a complex market efficiently.

Every corner of the city inspires Shannon. The Bay Area native enjoys time outdoors with her family, often adventuring in their Sprinter Van. She is currently raising her daughters and Golden Retriever in a home near Ocean Beach, Golden Gate Park, and the enchanting trails of Land's End and the Presidio.

      I help people navigate not just the market but new lifestyles and communities. 

      Home is where life happens, and changing where you live can uncover a variety of situations and challenges to navigate. From relocation to remodeling, downsizing, or upsizing, my clients enjoy the calm I bring to their real estate experience. Whether buying a home or selling, the first step is spending time together, learning about unique goals and desired timelines.

      Shannon helped us find and close on our dream home! The finding was the "fun" part, but it's all the details to get to closing is where you MUST work with an experienced partner like Shannon. Shannon has an extensive network and reputation that goes a long way in the Bay Area market. We closed in 30 days but there were a lot of conversations with the seller, lender, and title company that were handled by Shannon. This behind-the-scenes work and the clear timelines made me relax, and even when we began to stress -- we just looked to her for answers (which she always had). This is our forever home and a slice of heaven on Earth. Thank you, Shannon! You are always welcome to join us for whale watching.

      We were very lucky to be introduced to Shannon when we moved to San Francisco. She helped us learn about a new market and stayed by our side during the entire process until we closed on a house. She is an excellent realtor who is a pro at navigating real estate in SF. She made our experience so smooth and positive, and we are very grateful. She gives great advice and provides top-notch support as she really cares about her clients and their experience. Shannon is just a great person who is approachable, down-to-earth and really good at her job. I highly recommend her!

      Shannon is an exceptional agent! She contacted colleagues at other real estate firms to find us "off-market" homes. When we found the perfect home we discovered offers were due in 1.5 hours! In that short time, she sent us her analysis of value, prepared our offer, called our mortgage broker for our pre-approval letter, pre-booked our property inspections, and took the extra step to write a cover letter to present our offer in a professional manner.

      Talk about being organized and on top of her game! The home got 5 offers and although we wanted to bid more, Shannon encouraged us to write a lower offer based on her opinion of value. Without her speed and organization, we would've missed the chance to get our home!  We'd recommend her to our closest family and friends!

      Shannon is the best. She sold our San Francisco home in record time and above asking! My wife and I were both working full time and had little time for staging / working with contractors to do touch-up work around the house.

      Shannon not only knew all the right people to contact but also made time to be available to let people into our home to do the work.

      We couldn't have done it without her. We had a limited window to find a buyer as we had purchased a second home and needed the capital. Shannon understood this and worked aggressively to close a deal quickly. It all worked out perfectly thanks to Shannon!

      Shannon did a phenomenal job of selling the property we had called home for 40 years. She guided us every step of the way; starting a year before the sale. Her knowledge and experience of the Inner Sunset market, combined with her people skills; eased what is inevitably a very stressful process.

      She brought in several teams of stagers for us to choose from and a small army of workers to prepare our home. No detail was too small for her. She even supervised the movers so we could get to the airport! Best of all, she is so kind, polite, and soft-spoken – the antithesis of a results-oriented business person. Thanks to Shannon, the sale was wildly successful. We cannot recommend her too highly!

      We feel so lucky to have found Shannon. My husband and I knew that we were facing a challenge as first-time homebuyers in the San Francisco market (during a pandemic), but Shannon was there for us in every way.

      She was patient with our numerous questions, supportive and reassuring when things didn’t go our way, and proved to be a skilled negotiator once we did finally find our home. She is also an incredibly pleasant person to be around, with a calm demeanor and an ability to lower the stress level (usually mine) in the room. And, she immediately bonded with our toddler, who kept asking about when we would see Shannon next!

      Shannon is the BEST REALTOR. She helped me sell my condo in Haight-Ashbury & buy my dream house in Sunset. She was a treat to work with: in the know, proactive, confident, and empathetic. She achieved multiple offers on my condo + helped me navigate a bidding war with my house.

      She has an extraordinary network – other agents clearly want to work with her. Need to freshen the garden? Touch up some paint? Get an inspection? Get a mortgage!? Shannon has a referral to get it done easily if she hasn't already taken care of it herself! In a market like ours, you can't afford to waste time, money, or energy with anyone else; Shannon is your gal!
