A background in retail sales, a lifetime of high voltage volunteer work, and several personal relocations were the perfect training for Shelly Porter’s top producing career in real estate.
From her experience in retail sales, she became an adept salesperson who excels at customer service. A warm and friendly person, Shelly loves fulfilling her clients’ wants and needs. The joy she experiences in helping them find or sell their home is immeasurable. Although she has developed a no-pressure attitude, she is influential at the negotiating table and has earned a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) designation. Shelly has a broad base of satisfied clients who know they can trust her and those satisfied clients have rewarded her with 5-star ratings.
Thanks to a lifetime of volunteer work, Shelly learned leadership, organization, patience, and exceptional communication, marketing and networking skills. Highly motivated and self-starting, she is a person of character and integrity known by her peers as someone who will do what it takes to get the job done. No wonder the Junior League has recognized her three times with a Volunteer Extraordinaire Award.
As a wife and mother who has moved her family three times, Shelly knows firsthand what it’s like to relocate to a new city. Through these moves, she learned the skills needed to make her clients’ lives run smoothly, looking after details such as schools, job commute, neighborhood amenities, shopping, and sports and recreation.
Blessed with a great sense of design and home staging, Shelly appreciates the potential in every home she sees. She has earned a professional designation as an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS).
Shelly enjoys making memories with her husband who is a consultant in the Oil and Gas industry and her greatest source of pride is her son, who recently graduated from law school. Because she holds her own family in such high regard, she places an equally high premium on conveying that spirit to her clients, treating them like family.
“It is extremely important to me that every transaction I’m involved in is handled professionally, knowledgeably and honestly. I genuinely care for my clients. I am very protective of them and everything I do is with their best interest at heart.”
Shelly loves supporting her community through organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, MS Society Lonestar Chapter, American Heart Association, Preservation Houston, Toys for Tots Foundation, Susan G. Komen, World Vision, Memorial Woman’s Club, and The Junior League.
