Print Agent Bio
 
Shelley brings an award-winning marketing background to real estate in Portland. With a client-first attitude teamed with a calm demeanor and fact-based analysis, Shelley takes the guess work out of market values by offering clear and concise statistics so you can buy and sell with confidence. 
Born and raised in Canada with a previous 15 year broadcasting background under her belt, Shelley approaches real estate with strong and gritty negotiating skills, complete transparency, and expert marketing capabilities that are bar-none. Check out her reviews on Zillow to see what others are saying about her.

Shelley went above and beyond as our realtor. She is very knowledgeable about the market and always gave us pros and cons about the houses we were looking at and made sure we didn't make a decision just based on emotion. Shelley was always available to answer our questions, so much that I often wondered if she ever took a day off! Shelley is also a wonderful person with an amazing sense of humor, which made a big difference in a market as difficult as Portland. I would recommend Shelley to friends and family and I believe she is a huge asset to Hasson Realty.

Looking for a GREAT realtor who will go the extra mile for you? Look no further. I met Shelley while out scouting open houses in East Portland with our son who was in the market for his first home. I immediately sensed her authenticity and professionalism, and I was impressed with her depth of knowledge, and the clarity in describing subtle but important differences between various neighborhoods, and the challenges of current real estate market in Portland. Long story short, we hired Shelley to be our agent. She listened and asked all the right questions, arranged numerous tours of homes that met our specs. Once the perfect home was identified and offer accepted, she went the extra mile (on multiple occasions) to be our advocate and assure we ended up with the best deal possible. In Portland's crazy real estate market, you need someone who can & will respond quickly, work hard on your behalf to protect your interest 100%. That's why I wholeheartedly recommend Shelley Zavitz!

I heard great things about Shelley before even meeting her. Upon our first meeting, I could tell I was in good hands. She was prepared, knowledgable, and straight-forward, all while being just a great person to be around. Shelley invests herself in her clients and truly cares about them. She makes the real estate world less intimidating when you know you have her in your corner. She is always available when you have a question and works tirelessly to achieve your goals. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Shelley and through this process I am honored to call her a friend as well. I highly recommend Shelley to anyone in need of real estate expertise, you will not be disappointed!

Shelley is nothing short of the perfect real estate agent. I am so grateful to have had her on my side as a first time home buyer. Shelley takes the time to get to know you, truly understand your needs, and uncover needs you didn't even know you had. She makes her clients, and their comfort and happiness, her top priority. Her honesty and expertise always gave me confidence that I was making the right decisions. The detail and care she put into helping me buy my first home is astonishing (she is coming over to my house soon to show me how to change a furnace filter). Shelley's humor and kindness takes all the pain out of the process. When I found my house, I was actually a little sad because it meant I wouldn't be spending my weekends looking at houses with Shelley anymore.

The one thing you want when you're negotiating the ins and outs of purchasing a house, is a confident, knowledgeable, and experienced real estate agent. Shelley Zavitz is just that; she gave great advice, she looked into any questions we had, she was prompt, she was professional, and she handled negotiations-in the crazy Portland market-with certainty and grace. Above all else, Shelley brought with her a sense of calm one finds with a person who knows what they are doing

Shelley was an amazing agent. As first time buyers she showed us our first home which we fell in love with, walked us through the entire process, and was incredibly responsive to all my questions and emails. Cannot recommend more highly.

Shelley helped us go through the process of buying our first home. With her guidance not only did we survive the ordeal we thrived. I highly recommend her she had incredible insight when looking at homes and was able to show us things we might have missed upon first viewing. She was incredibly responsive whenever we had questions about the process and went out of her way to make sure we were getting the best deal. I cannot think of anybody else I would want in my corner when it comes to real estate.

"We worked with Shelley to sell our old house and buy a new one. She was great. Very accessible, easy to work with, professional, personable, and knowledgable. We have 2 young kids and had a lot going on while we were going through this process, and she was so patient with us and took care of so much behind the scenes. I know there are lots of great realtors out there, but man, Shelley is the best."

"I met Shelley at an open house before i was really ready to start looking. She impressed me w/her laid back, yet confident and professional attitude, so I sought her out as my first choice agent once I was ready to buy. She has a great, no-pressure attitude, but she is also very knowledgeable and quick to follow up on inquiries. She was very available to discuss any questions/issues that came up. I was a first time home buyer, so I had lots of questions about everything, some of them might have been a little basic since I had never bought a home before. Shelley always made me feel like my questions were welcomed and that getting an answer to me was a priority for her. She anticipated lots of my questions about how the process works, time frame, etc (I'm a worrier at baseline), and she would bring those types of issues to the forefront, which really helped decrease my nervousness.

A great agent will help their clients shoot for the moon, but also keep them grounded in reality. I imagine this is a very fine line to walk, but Shelley does it with ease and grace."

"I decided to work with Shelley after having a less than desirable experience with my first realtor and not for a second did I second guess my decision. Shelley sat across the table from me and told me exactly what I needed to hear. She told me she was relentless, that she would hustle, grind, and do whatever was needed to get me into a home that I loved. She did exactly that and much more. She befriended my family. She got to know me as a friend before a client. She went above and beyond to make this crazy process a smooth one. This was my first home buying process in a market where you can put in 10+ offers and still be without a place to call home. She had me in a home in my desired location in a smaller time frame that I had expected. I can go on and on about her professionalism, our friendship, and her work ethic. I don't expect this to be only home I buy in the Portland area and I don't anticipate working with anybody besides Shelley. Simply put, hiring her was the best decision I made during this process and I would recommend her to anybody looking for a home. You need someone fighting the fight for you and she will do more than that. Hire her. You will never regret it or second guess it."
