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

Shelby was the perfect realtor to represent me and my best interests!!! I found THE perfect home (seriously,my DREAM HOME) in a matter of 3 hours! She left a work meeting just to ask if I wanted to see a home that she knew I would love. She scheduled showing for less than an hour out, we went and I loved it, we submitted offer, and received note that the house was mine so fast. It was incredible and it was my first home so even sweeter! I would recommend her to anyone at any stage in life. She will not leave any stone unturned.


Looking for our first house in a crazy sellers market was tough but have no worries when you choose the best of the best, Shelby is an absolute pleasure to work with, she’s professional and very easy to work with, knowledgeable and brings her A game every single day, she worked around our schedule and was able to get us into every house we wanted to take a look at. Answered every question or concerns that we had, worked around the clock to find us our perfect home. Reliable, responds very quickly, extremely efficient. I can’t say enough. A realtor that actually cares about every individual she works with is very hard to find. She takes her job and puts her whole heart into it to help us find our perfect home! I don’t want to sound like one of those people but I really don’t leave reviews unless I am thrilled with the outcome and she honestly made the process so easy and we are so lucky to have been able to work with her! Thank you so much Shelby! From the Keo family !
