Shelly was amazing to work with as my spouse and I were new parents and first time home buyers. She consistently worked day and night to ensure we looked at a dozen+ homes and at times, looked at a home twice! Just when the market was very actively competitive and homes selling faster then they were listed, we wanted to give up on house hunting. This did not stop Shelly on giving up because we wanted to! She would text me and tell me to "just look at this home even if your not interested, I think it meets all of your needs". She was never too pushy yet always available in person or by text/email. She was very patient when we had to bring our infant son along the ride as well. If at any time Shelly was unable to personally accommodate us, she would arrange for her partner to be there for our needs!! Shelly is also involved within the community and volunteers in her spare time as a way of giving back to our community- this just showed us her dedication ! She exceeded in every expectation of what a first time home buyer would expect when Buying A home !

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Our Experience with Shelly Gracey
Shelly, You were recommended to us by a good neighbor and by our Son & his wife who were helping us with the many complexities of a house sale and who researched a number of local Sales people in the process. The way you presented yourself at our first meeting and explained your way of representing our interests, impressed us (very much) considerably. Presenting us with well developed step by step procedures and reminders of many of the details to be considered in selling a house was very clear and detailed A well developed plan for the necessary wrap up of all services was part of your printed material Also part of your plan were your recommendations for the preparation of the home and the cleaning and organizing for showing of the house You came well prepared for the comprehensive planning of a successful pricing strategy An added service you had to provide, since we moved to Burlington prior to the showing of our Paris home, was checking the premises regularly and watering the plants. You also had companies available who where reliable and capable of good work on short notice.. Reliable Movers, painters, carpet cleaners etc. Clients like us, on in years and easily taken advantage of, appreciate someone totally dependable and prepared to go beyond the confines of their normal job description or job expectation. Should you require additional recommendations, please advise. We would also be glad to speak to anyone on the 'phone or have them call us at 905-634-1942

Buying and Selling with Shelly Gracey
I recently sold my home with the help and expertise of Shelly. She is very knowledgeable of the market and tactics of buying and selling and I ended up getting more then my asking price. She is very friendly and hard working and made my home buying and selling experience as good as it gets. Many thanks Shelly !

My Realtor, my first friend in Paris.
Shelly came highly recommended from one of her clients. She willing assisted and helped with the sale of our home in Kitchener. Shelly eagerly sought out our best options in Paris that would meet our financial obligations from the sale in Kitchener even with the cost of lawyers fees. Within 24 hours of an end unit condo going on the market, Shelly put forward an offer that was immediately accepted. We were over joyed with her willingness to have us view potential offers, always on time and giving us her honest opinion. Upon closing, Shelly recommended a Paris lawyer, which saved us more money. It soon will be three years living in our condo with all amenities on main floor, being seniors. The finished basement is like an elaborate ensuite for overnight and longer stay friends. Shelly is always available to recommend a variety of services and maintenance people as we were complete strangers to this very friendly town. She became our first friend and a second daughter to us and comes highly recommended from my husband and myself.

Professionalism of Shelly
I have had the pleasure of using Shelly as our real estate agent. I felt very comfortable with her, she was helpful, not pushy, knowledgeable. I would use her another time and recommend her to a friend.

Working with Shelly
Shelly Gracey is the best Real estate agent by far, I have ever hired. She is thorough in her research of the house I needed to move into. Shelly will ask all the pertinent questions for a successful sale of the old house and purchase of a new one. Shelly was recommended by a previous neighbour, and I would not hesitate to recommend Shelly in future
- Russ T. Feb 2015
Shelly consistently delivers on our expectations and has given us great comfort in knowing our best interests are at the forefront of every decision. An ethical and inspiring mindset towards her profession no matter what circumstance or obstacles. Even after the acquisition Shelly continues to stay in touch providing you with a true sense of compassion towards her clients needs.
- Anthony S. 2/25/2015
We contacted Shelly when we were about to purchase our first home. Being new to the market Shelly was extremely patient, friendly and very knowledgeable. She answered any questions/concerns we had any time of day or evening. We never felt pressured, she simply wanted to find the right home for us. We looked through many houses until she found one that was right for us. Shelly was a great listener and gave great tips during home viewings on things to watch out for when buying a home. She was wonderful to work with and made the home buying experience very pleasant.
- Daniel & Corianne Westerterp
We found Shelly kind of by chance. She was selling a house we were interested in. With our first talk I could tell she was a zero pressure and very attentive realtor. So we used her to sell our condo and to buy our home. This can be a tricky process but she juggled both of her clients in my opinion very well. She was always there with quick replies to texts and emails whenever we had questions which is excellent. I truly believe she cares greatly about her clients and I would recommend her to anyone who would like a low pressure salesperson to represent them.
- Paul F.
Shelley came recommended by a good friend of mine. She said that Shelly was very honest and what works hard to sell our house she came through and had our house sold quickly for close to the asking price I would recommend her to anyone who wants to get the most out of their property and have an honest and I repeat honest Real estate agent working for you.
- Ron S.
Shelly has always been on her game and represented is well with several real estate deals. We definitely recommend her.
- Cheryl H.

- Tania A.
Shelly sold our home in 3 days. She made herself available to view other homes and was very honest about the buying and selling process. She wasn't there to just make a buck! What I liked best was the quick responses to my email and texts. I will use her again and highly recommend that "you" use her as well. Less

Working with Shelly Gracey
When we first decided to look for a home in the Paris area, we called the realtor next to the first house we wanted to see on the MLS listing as we did not have a reference base to choose from. Little did we know at the time was that this was probably the best move we made during the whole buying process as that person was Shelly Gracey. Shelly immediately put us at ease with her friendly personality and warm smile. Even when we told her that we were not even sure if we wanted to buy something or if we were just looking it did not affect the way she treated us. She was unbelievably quick to respond to any questions we had and was regularly sending us information on houses that would be a good fit for what we were looking for. You could tell right from the start that Shelly really cared about us finding the perfect place for us to call home. After we found a house that was perfect for us, Shelly continued to look out for our best interests throughout the signing process ensuring that we bid the right amount to get the house (there was already an existing offer on the place) but came out of the deal with everything we wanted/needed. Shelly's level of service did not stop here though. After the deal was firm she could have very easily have walked away or gave us less attention as her work technically was done. Shelly did just the opposite though. It wasn't a rare sight to see a voicemail or txt message asking how things were going or if we had any additional questions. When we did have questions she was just as prompt and helpful in answering them as she was during the whole search process. You could tell that she genuinely cared about us and wanted to make our transition as easy as possible. If you are looking for a realtor in the Paris, Brantford and surrounding areas, you are missing out if you do not look into Shelly representing you. We were truly fortunate to have found Shelly to help in finding the perfect house for us and would use her again in a heartbeat. We hope that others read this and make the same choice we did in bringing this incredible person on to represent them. - Greg and Laura 2 VERY satisfied clients and happy home owners

As first time home buyers we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Shelly Gracey honestly makes the process fun and understandable.

Hey Shelly! Steve told me you're on vacation. Sorry to bother you while you're away. Just didn't want to wait anymore to message you. I wanted to say thank you for all of the hard work you did for Steve and I!! It was truly refreshing to see such a committed and diligent real estate agent. But you we're more than an agent, you actually took the time to get to know us and hang out with our kids. That speaks volumes to us and we are so grateful to have met you!! So sorry that Steve and I couldn't get our act together quicker, but I really hope that next spring brings us some new farms to consider and a FINISHED HOUSE, lol.
We really look forward to working with you again, and I will continue to spread the word about you to our friends and family!
Thanks again Shelly, you are one-of-a-kind!!
Hope you enjoy your well- deserved vacation!!

I got an email from my sister and she was very impressed with you, she didn't even want to meet with another agent.
Thank-you for your help as we both know how stressful selling your home can be!
71 Savannah Ridge Drive, Paris, Ontario
SOLD for 99% of Asking Price , 36 days
It is always wonderful and relieving to meet an agent who is direct & honest, to the point, and who gets the job done. After 3months of fiddling around with other agents who to me seemed unorganized, too relaxed towards our situation, and did not give 100% of themselves to finding us a house, you were like a breath of fresh air that luckily swooped in and put our entire buying situation into perspective. You asked us all the right questions to determine both of our wants and needs and our expectations for our first home. You were helpful in orientating us around Brantford and Paris as we are new to the area, and offered help that extended far beyond your reach. In my eyes you give 110% of yourself to your clients, and in times and economies like this I believe that will continue to make you a successful choice to any consumer. You found us our perfect "starter" home well below our price range that meets everything we have asked for, and we can't thank you enough. You have a way of giving that "extra" bit of yourself which was very calming to us in a time of high stress. Please feel free to put your "sold" sign up on our lot as long as you need and when it comes time to re-sell this Brantford home in 4-5years we will be sure to call you first, not to mention recommend you highly to the next person.
Thanks so much with love and friendship,
Lisa & Jamie
