Testimonials

  • 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 is the BEST REALTOR, hands down. She represented me both selling my condo in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood and also buying my dream house in the Central Sunset. She was a treat to work with every step of the way: in the know, proactive, confident and empathetic. She achieved  multiple offers on my condo, and she helped me navigate (and win) a very competitive bidding environment with my house. But where Shannon really shines is her personal touch and passion for the business. Not only does she dig deep with her clients and their real estate wants/needs, but she maintains an extraordinary professional network that she taps on their behalf. Other realtors want to work with Shannon and make life easier for her clients in the process. Need to freshen the garden? Touch up some paint? Get a roof inspection? Get a mortgage!? Shannon has a referral to get it done easily and affordably if she hasn't already taken care of it herself! In a real estate market like ours, you can't afford to waste time, money or energy with anyone else; Shannon is your gal!

  • Having worked with two other reputable Realtors before Shannon, we can really say that Shannon is an exceptional agent!  She took the extra steps to contact colleagues at different real estate firms to seek out and find us several "off-market" homes.  When we found the perfect home we discovered offers were due by 4PM that day (1.5 hours later) she was already 2 steps ahead. In that short window of time she sent us her analysis of value, prepared our offer, called our mortgage broker for us to get our pre-approval letter, pre-booked our property inspections to help show the sellers we were serious, and took the extra step to write a cover letter presenting and packaging 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 have missed the opportunity to submit an offer on our new home!  We would recommend her to our closest family and friends!

  • As trustee of a close friend’s trust, I needed an experienced realtor who could handle all aspects of preparing and selling a large Victorian home. When I interviewed Shannon, it was clear her deep experience, team approach, and impressive and detailed plan to prepare, market and sell the home would fulfill the expectations of the trust's beneficiary.

    In a short period of time, she skillfully orchestrated all the necessary improvements of the property and managed pre-sale inspections. The staging and the print and digital marketing materials were flawlessly executed. I was also impressed that she stayed well under budget to prepare the house in order to transform it from a “fixer-upper” into a beautiful Victorian. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend Shannon to anyone seeking a white-glove experience during the preparation and sale of a San Francisco home. She far exceeded my expectations and sold the property for 32% over our asking price, reflecting great advice that targeted the correct market and captured ready and qualified buyers. Shannon is consummate professional and I greatly enjoyed working with her!

  • Any Realtor can sell you a house. It takes an agent to find you a home. Shannon will always be my agent, and I will push all of my friends and family to use her because there is a difference. When we first began the process Shannon spent hours getting to know my family, our needs, our wants, and our wishes before she started showing us homes. By understanding not just the objective needs but the subjective feel we wanted in a home she was able to maximize our time together and show us multiple "perfect" homes. It felt like Shannon was always on call. She has the expertise to answer technical questions as well as the patience and care to handle the "less technical" ones. The first step in finding your perfect home is finding the right agent. I am grateful we found Shannon.

  • We recently fulfilled a dream of buying a home outside San Francisco, in Woodside. Our family could not have reached that goal without the help and guidance of our Realtor, Shannon Hughes.  We had two properties in San Francisco that we sold within 6 months in order to buy and Shannon was by our side throughout every step of the process. We are parents and both work full time and we decided to move out of our home to put in on the market one week after spotting our dream home. This seems like an extremely stressful time, but with Shannon on our side, there wasn't  much to be stressed about. From preparing the homes for the market to negotiating the many steps of the sales process, she was dedicated to making sure all the work was done promptly and done well and we received the highest price for the market. This can be directly attributed to her attention to detail throughout the whole process, which was super efficient as well. For our family, working with someone we 100% trusted and absolutely had our best interests in mind, was essential. Buying and selling houses is not our career and being able to entirely trust in someone to look after our family and our future goals was reassuring. That person was Shannon. We love our life in the country and have Shannon to thank. We do not hesitate recommending Shannon to our closest friends and family.

  • I was very hesitant to engage an agent when I started the purchase process, but Shannon proved her value to me immediately when she started finding condos for me that were excellent choices that I would never have found myself. Shannon also proved herself to be very trustworthy. There were a few condos that I thought were a good fit, but when Shannon looked into them, she suggested I pass because she found the construction to be poor quality or permits were not well documented. She and I spent 6 months tirelessly looking until I found the perfect 'pristine' apartment and negotiated to pay well below list price. Also, you won't find a more responsive agent - she'll work all night for you. 

  • Working with Shannon was an outstanding experience. We were looking for a home during the peak of the market and things were CRAZY! She did a great job of keeping us at ease and helping to put us in the best position when trying to compete. When we found the perfect home, it was worth waiting for as she continued to tell us throughout the process. During the closing process she provided us step-by-step information on setting up utilities, city requirements, you name it. She even continued to check in on us after we moved in, and helped give me advice on layout and decor!

    I have already referred a friend to Shannon who also bought a home with her help and they had the same amazing experience. She is a First-Class agent and really knows the San Francisco and Marin markets.
