"Shelby worked really hard for us in helping to find a place that was right for our needs. Always prompt and attentive to both the market and responding to our requests for information concerning our loan status and prospective properties." ~ Brad M.

"Shelby gave us rock star treatment beginning with our first meeting. I was so impressed with her sensitivity and expertise in helping us find a place that worked for us, guiding us through the process, as well as her advocacy and persistence during some challenging phases of the transaction. Shelby checked up on us the week after we moved in. I will definitely recommend Shelby to friends and will use her again for sure should we ever decide to sell." ~ E. Clark

"Benj and Shelby are both warm, responsive, and organized. I was dreading the house-buying process in the current market, but they were grounded and knowledgeable, and it turned out to be so much easier than I anticipated. I attribute this, in part, to their ability to anticipate and navigate the buyer / seller needs." ~ Amy P.

"Shelby Rice is the realtor we didn't know we needed when we started to look for homes in the South West Portland area. Being new to the Pacific North West, and with a limited time to find a home, Shelby was quick to respond. Any questions we had, making arrangements to see homes, she was there for us. She has the knowledge of a Portland native, and having raised children in the area understood our needs and priorities. With a small child, our schedule was a bit hectic and Shelby was always understanding of our schedule. We saw several homes before deciding on our home. We can't thank Shelby enough for her patience every time we looked at a home, she was always prepared with school and local neighborhood information. Even after purchasing our home she is still in contact with us to make sure there was a smooth transition. We can't recommend Shelby enough as your realtor." ~Janice and Michael

" Thank you for your great work. I've had a half dozen agents over the past decade and you've definitely set the bar for excellence! " ~ Tony R.

" In the past few years that I have worked with Shelby, I have been impressed with her ability to problem solve, contribute to the group effort with a positive and upbeat attitude and innovate in ways that one seldom is lucky enough to find in the work place. I would not hesitate to work in the future with her as an employee or, better yet as a partner! " ~ John Deering

" I rely on Shelby as a colleague, a consultant, and a friend. She has a great aesthetic eye and an amazing ability to intuit what I'm trying to accomplish and help me get there. On top of that, she is quick and thorough in her work. It's a pleasure to work with her." ~ Ann Powers

" I have had the distinct pleasure of knowing Shelby Rice for over twenty years as well as the opportunity to work with her for an extended period not once but twice in those years. In addition to being an excellent communicator who is able to anticipate what issues might be challenging, Shelby is just plain a wonderful person with whom to do business. She continues to help us with special projects when she has the time to do so. She re-organized our entire marketing plan and moved it up to a whole new level of effectiveness. She is among the most ethical persons with whom I have ever worked in my forty years of business. All of my interchanges with her have been positive and respectful. Anyone working with Shelby should expect it to have some fun as she gets the job done. Space is too limited here to say all the good things I could say about her!
