Get to know Shelly Long-Welborn
I began in local real estate in 1995. I received my license in 1997 and sold 20 homes in my first year (a 'down' market at that time). Obviously, real estate is a VERY GOOD match for me. I've never been a "sales person" in the true sense of the word. I feel that homes sell themselves. However, what I provide is Service, Knowledge & 100% Customer Satisfaction. And I answer my phone....this is a big deal in real estate, as many of you are aware. In addition, I am an Outstanding Life Member of the Sacramento and Placer County Assn of Realtors "Master's Club", which is an elite group of only 10% of local Realtors are accepted each year. As of 2011, I was named one of the "Top 100" performing Realtors within the Sacramento/Tahoe region of Coldwell Banker.
In addition, I frequently counsel homeowners on short sales, loan mods and their options prior to foreclosure....at no cost to the homeowner!
I am a Sacramento native...which is a rarity these days. I absolutely LOVE the Sacramento Valley, and thoroughly enjoy it's proximity to the Sierra Nevada, San Francisco Bay, Marin County, Amador/Lodi/Napa wine country and all areas in between. I've seen many changes over the years, which includes extensive knowledge of the many neighborhoods, both good and not so, throughout our five Counties (Sac, El Dorado, Placer, Yuba, Yolo). I pride myself on my knowledge of not only the area, but real estate itself...which is akin to speaking another language altogether.
I truly enjoy working with Buyers; first-timers, move-ups, or seasoned pros, and Sellers. My extensive experience with Buyers is what gives my Sellers the competitive edge, as I know very well what appeals to Buyers and what doesn't, especially in today's hectic, ever-changing market. Lastly, I have experience with appraisals as well as general contracting, yet another competitive edge that I provide to all clients~FREE of charge!
FULL service with a SMILE~!

Testimonials for Shelly Long-Welborn
When I was finally ready to buy my first house in 2013 I knew I was going to need a Realtor that I could trust. I needed someone with integrity, patience, knowledge and someone that would help guide me in making decisions that were always in my best interest. Shelly was all of these things for me and more. There were limited houses on the market that fit my criteria and after losing 4 houses to cash buyers I entertained settling for less just to get into a house. Shelly knew I would regret that compromise and worked with me non-stop until we found the perfect house. On September of 2013 I closed on my house and couldn't be happier. Shelly's professionalism, experience and familiarity with the Sacramento area make her a Realtor that I would highly recommend to anyone!

I'm a first time Buyer in the Sacramento area and my partner was a Realtor in Texas (who recently relocated to the Sacramento area). We found Shelly online and decided to work with her due to experience, knowledge and personality. We found her to be very personable, an easy communicator, receptive to our many questions and a great educator to the market in this area. Shelly was tenacious when necessary, she was also protective and discreet with our personal information. She was able to focus on exactly what we wanted, even though we originally identified something completely different. Shelly made recommendations for inspectors and contractors, and yet allowed us to choose whomever we wished to work with. Shelly listened to our needs and matched them as best she could given the nature of the market (Fall 2013). Her energy and experience was exactly what we needed. We are grateful to have found her and happily recommend her for all your real estate needs.
Shelly had an extensive knowledge of all the surrounding areas of Sacramento. She took the time to learn what we were looking for, LISTENED, and came back with prospective properties that were aligned with our needs and desires. She was extremely patient and took the time to point out advantages, disadvantages, highlights and negatives of each. She was nothing short of fabulous to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone buying a home!!
