Shelley (Michele) Sandler - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

“I really cannot find the words to adequately thank you for all that you have done for us-and to us-over the past several months.

From
 your finding the beautiful house in Greenview Cove, to your insisting that I tour it and that Lisa take the time to see it as well, to your holding our hands through the sale of the Binks Forest house and the purchase of the new house, to your helping us navigate the rough
 seas of mortgages and bills of sale and real estate law, to your sitting with us at the closing and even providing coffee and cake for the entire cast of characters, to the very generous gift for my Discretionary Fund which you left at the Temple yesterday-through it all you
have been with us every step of the way and for that we are enormously grateful to you. If you could now make three or four huge closets magically appear your job will be finished! Seriously, we thank you for caring, for your assistance and for your love-which I
gather was not included in your contract-and we look forward to welcoming you to our new home very soon. You deserve a walk-through and a personally guided tour and even a dip in the unheated swimming pool. Lisa, of course, joins in these expressions of gratitude. We love you all.”

Shelley Sandler is truly as good as it gets!

She is an outstanding very experienced professional who cares about her clients. Shelley gets things done, without her we would still be just 'thinking' about selling our house. Shelley gave us excellent advice from the first talk to the closing and thanks to her efforts we sold our house in ten days! Look no further because you won't find a better realtor

Shelley was recommended by a family member who had recently bought and sold their homes in the West Lake Worth area.

From the moment we called to speak to her about selling our townhouse and buying a new single-family home, we were instantly put at ease knowing how long Shelley had been selling homes in the area and how pleasant she sounded over the phone. Being busy people, Shelley came to our home to discuss selling our townhouse and provided excellently researched comparatives of other sold townhomes in the area. Shelley listed our home and due to her hard work and diligence we had four solid offers within the first week. Shelley kept us informed throughout the entire process and was very professional. Once we were well into a firm contract, we began looking at potential single-family homes to buy. Shelley was very patient and listened to what our wants and needs were when finding homes for us to view. Once we found the home that was perfect for us, Shelley quickly presented the offer and it was accepted with very little hesitation from the seller. Shelley's personality and friendliness has really touched us and has lead way to a great friendship. I would recommend Shelley to anyone looking for a phenomenal realtor and advisor.

“There are tons of realtors in the Western communities.

Many have come and gone. It is hard to make it in this town, especially now with
 the economy being so bad. Shelley Sandler has been a consistent realtor extraordinaire for the past 10 years. Shelley knows how the real estate market works in this area and she knows the people who can get the job done. Shelley knows the area so well, in fact, some people
 refer to her as the mayor.”

Kudos to Shelley Sandler with Illustrated Properties for recently helping my husband and me find a beautiful home in Wellington.

As the result of her exceptional knowledge in the real estate arena and expert advice, our home search and relocation was made a lot easier. She provided excellent service, understood our desired level of living and in many cases went above and beyond our expectations in support of our home search. I highly recommend Shelley to anyone in their search for a new home. If you are looking for an expert in the industry and a solid professional, contact Shelley Sandler.

I highly recommend Shelley Sandler as a Real Estate agent.

My family relocated from Seattle to Florida and we explored several regions around the state before settling on Wellington. Honestly, our experience with Shelley was a big influencer on picking Wellington over Tampa or Broward County. Shelley's attention to detail and her focus on customer service are top notch. We were shopping for a rental property so we could test out our city choice for the first year. We had special needs as we were relocating with a giant breed dog and two cats....this made our rental search MUCH more difficult. Shelley took our requirements in stride and was creative, kind and supportive. She found us several good properties within our budget and helped us navigate the lease agreement processes while we were in Seattle and doing things remotely. Shelley provided guidance and solid advice but was never pushy. We loved that she took the time to show us the community as well as homes, and made sure we knew about the wonderful events that happen around our new town so we could start being involved in the community. We appreciated her professionalism and service so much that when it came time to start shopping for a place to buy, we called Shelley again. She's knowledge on the local community, the neighborhoods, schools and real estate market. She's well connected in the Real Estate community too and was able to notify me the morning a new property was coming onto the market. She's been in her profession long enough she'd been in this particular house that was coming on the market and knew it could be right for us. She got us in that same day for a tour and it turned out to be the house we bought. Before that, she had patiently shown us great properties even though we were looking at both fixer-uppers and move in ready homes. Most other Real Estate professionals would have been frustrated with our lack of definition about what we were looking for, but Shelley used this an opportunity to understand us as a family and so she could make the right recommendation. If you're looking for a great Real Estate professional, call Shelley!!

"Shelley was a pleasure to work with.She really understands the Wellington resale market and what it takes to sell a 30 year old home. She brought us many potential buyers and gave us suggestions on things we needed to do to the house to make it ready for sale.She was awesome in marketing...I would recommend her without any hesitation at all. What I especially liked was her attention to detail and her frequent updates on remarks future buyers made about the house."

"Real estate agent extraordinaireIf you’re looking for an agent who has your best interests at heart, really listens to you and prioritizes your needs and caters to your desires throughout your entire search, is thoroughly knowledgeable with the purchasing process and intimately familiar with surrounding areas, coaches you on potential issues with prospective homes, isn’t embarrassed to submit your offers (regardless of how ridiculous they may sound to her), and will go to the earth’s ends to get you what you want, Shelley is the agent for you. She worked tirelessly showing us homes, texting, emailing and calling us with additional info 7-days a week, 24x7 and negotiated hard on our behalf to get us the home we wanted at a fair price, . . . all in the span of 2-3 weeks!!! Being from out-of-state, she educated us on the nuances of the different communities, HOA’s, homestead tax and a myriad of other things . . . even unrelated to our purchase. As an added bonus, Shelley is also a great resource with recommendations for everything from house cleaners to the best farmer’s markets to Dr.’s. With Shelley, we didn’t just feel like another client, she was a trusted advisor, consummate professional and truly looked out for us with our best interests at heart."

"Shelley is extremely knowledgeable about the market, including details on the reputation of the builder (in the case of new construction) , the surrounding area (great for those new to south Florida), and listens well to your wish list. She found me my new home on day one of our search together! And she gave me tips and guidance throughout the whole buying and closing process. She was even by my side for the final walk through and found things I would have never noticed to be fixed by the builder on my behalf. Having Shelley as your broker is like having a savvy partner who will get you the best deal and make sure you’re represented well."
