Our Team

Shelby Ward (she/her)

Shelby has 10+ years of experience in Richmond real estate (both new construction & resale) and takes each clients’ individual story and makes it into the most educated, most significant home buying/selling decision ever. Throughout the process (whether it’s the first home or 100th) she is there, every step of the way, answering every question someone has, big or small. She is always looking to learn new ways to make the process the easiest and the least stressful. Shelby truly understands the impact of house-buying and is the biggest cheerleader for her clients. She doesn’t stop at closing, either; she has a knack for turning her clients into friends, and friends into family – the part she loves the most. She has lived (and sold) in many areas of Richmond, including South Chesterfield, Chester, Midlothian, Henrico, Short Pump, Glen Allen, Hanover, and is a homeowner herself in the Near West End. One can always find her around town at a local spot, on the River, or spending time with her black lab, Jax.

What Our Clients Love About Shelby

As a first time home buyer Shelby was there for the whole process. We didn’t have an easy buying process due to the sellers issues but we got through it. She got through the process with us and my parents (first time home owner at 23 obviously there’s more than my opinion involved) and handled it with ease. We were not the easiest group but she answered every question, texted back and called back promptly, and handled all the sticky issues with the selling agent with class. I highly recommend Shelby to anyone that wants to buy a home. She is great at both first time and previously owned home buyers!

As a first-time home buyer I was not sure what to expect, but Shelby made it SO easy to understand, which made the entire process go smoothly. Shelby is extremely professional, friendly, funny and down to earth. She works within your budget and keeps your interests in mind, making it her goal that you find exactly what you are looking for. Shelby is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the industry and understanding the market. She was also very responsive to my texts and phone calls, answering any and all questions that I had throughout the entire process. When it came to scheduling tours and appointments, Shelby was super accommodating. She is super fun to work with and I look forward to working with her in the future!!
