“When we purchased the house that Shelly (recently) sold for us, she was on the other side of the table.  I was very impressed with her then.  I cannot tell you enough how great a Realtor she is.  She was very helpful in the listing …she always went above and beyond the call of duty …She was just perfect in everything that we could have wanted in a real estate agent.  More than that, she became our friend, and we hope we are hers.” -Gerry & Connie Q.

“…she has been extremely helpful during this whole process.  We couldn’t have done this as smoothly without her.  If there was ever a question that she didn’t know the answer to, she had no problem getting the information back to us A.S.A.P.  She’s awesome! …Ray & I couldn’t ask for anything more.  We are very happy with her service.” -Ray & Jaime A.

“Shelly was very professional and knowledgeable about the market.  She helped us sell our home in 9 short days.  I was also impressed with her because she was always available to us.  She returned calls immediately, no matter what time of the day.” -Susan G.

“My husband & I worked with Shelly to sell our townhouse and purchase a new home.  From the beginning, she was attentive to every detail and made sure that we understood everything involved in the process of selling and buying a home.  From helping us stage our townhouse, to helping us figure out what we really wanted in a new home, Shelly had it all covered.  She was available anytime we needed her to answer questions, no matter how silly they seemed.  She was organized, efficient, friendly and overall a great person to work with… We thoroughly enjoyed working with Shelly and would highly recommend her…  Not only was Shelly fantastic to work with a few months ago, but she even went above and beyond and helped us again recently.” -Mark & Erin Polis

“Both transactions went extremely smooth, due mainly to Shelly’s incredible attention to detail and dedication to customer service.  She kept us well informed at all times, and most importantly, listened and responded to our needs.  …we were also worried about the timing of the two closings, and Shelly coordinated them perfectly, even following up while she was on vacation.  What dedication!” -Bob & Julie C.

“We wish to inform you that Shelly has been extremely helpful and competent to analyze our needs and wishes and made a selection of the houses which greatly facilitated our final choice as time in the US was limited for us.  …It is with pleasure and confidence that we would recommend Shelly to anyone planning the purchase of a property for her professionalism, availability, and tactful coordination between the parties involved.” -Danielle C., Resident of France (They sent flowers as well.)

From a previous Managing Broker:

“I am so very proud of you! I get great notes from your clients, reminding me how special you are! I get more good notes on you than any other agent in this office.  Thanks for making CB Primus look so good.  You are a true professional.”


“I have always felt blessed to have worked with you and have you in our company.  I know and come in contact with a lot of people and I have to tell you, you are unique in the special talent you have in helping people.” -Robin Rinaldi, (New position) CB Primus Executive Career Consultant

“It is with great pleasure that we wish to inform you that working with Shelly Coarson, initially in 2004, and now for the selling of our house in April 2010… We did get extremely helpful support from Shelly during the months preceding the sale.  From the moment we informed Shelly we were planning to sell the house and until the house was sold, she always came with full information about the market and gave us precious advice on what to do before putting the house on the market… Her availability, permanent “smiling” assistance and cooperation have been a great support to us.  She is very professional and has a full knowledge of all services which can be offered by Coldwell Banker… With her, Coldwell Banker has a unique Realtor!” -Jean-Pierre & Danielle C., Resident of France

“We wanted to let you know what a gem you have in Shelly Coarson.  We had the pleasure of working with her, for the short sale of our home.  Right from the very start, she truly understood what we needed to accomplish and did many “extras” to get it done.  Shelly was informative, supportive and a really great communicator.  We have sold houses before, and have had dealings with Realtors/agents many times, but her energy is undeniable when it comes to getting results.  She marketed and sold our home in less than 7 weeks, and we couldn’t be more greatful.  Like we said, she is a gem.  We will continue to recommend her, and the Cary office of Honig-Bell.  What a great operation.  Thanks so much.” -Jack & Sharon H.

“…I love how your clients support you.  You do an AWESOME job!” -Debbie Marwitz, Managing Broker, CB Honig-Bell, Cary

“Shelly was great throughout the entire process, I can’t say enough good things about her.  She treated my future home, at the time, like her own.  She brought up questions that I would never have thought of.  Even though it was not my first home, there were many things I learned from Shelly.  She made every appointment and met with me as many times as I needed.  She suggested questions I should be asking the inspectors, attorney, and others.  My purchase was a short sale, and Shelly kept me informed about every little bit of update she got from the selling agent.  As you can understand, a short sale is not a smooth transaction and requires an extra level of patience. Not only was Shelly patient, calm, and professional, she kept my emotions in order as well.  I am willing to be her reference any time she needs one.” -Abdul Q.

From the parents of a first-time homebuyer:

“Bill and I would like to thank you for all the help you gave Alan buying his first home.  As parents, you realize you can only offer so much advice before it is considered being too involved.  We appreciate how you educated Alan about the process, making sure he understood what was going on and taking time to answer any and all questions.  You were very thorough in explaining from start to finish the home buying process.  Not many agents will take the time to ensure a client is comfortable in the process.  You made the purchase of Alan’s first home not only easy for him, but for us as well.  For that we are truly thankful.” -Bill & Penny C. (They were invited to come along for the ride any time.)

“I wanted to follow up with you to let you know all your hard work in helping me with my tax appeal was really appreciated.  Who would have known that I was excited to receive a tax bill?!!  And guess what? It dropped $2,300 from last year’s! Woo Hoo!!! Thank you for all your hard work and encouragement!!” -Diane B

“Just a quick note to let you know what a pleasure it has been to work with Shelly Coarson.  Although we were only looking for a rental, Shelly has spent a great deal of time helping us.  She not only showed us the properties, but made sure our contract was in perfect order.  She is fantastic with details!!  We will be looking forward to our walk-thru on April 12th.  We feel we have made a new and special friend.” -Bea B. 

I just wanted to let you know that my husband and I are very thankful with Shelly Coarson.  First of all, she is a kind person, very organized and helpful.  I have to confess that my English is so bad, but she makes everything easy for us to understand.  In addition, Shelly always was available for us, no matter the day, time or distance.  You have a great team member in your company!” -Luis & Claudia G. 

“I was very impressed with the expertise and professionalism of Shelly. Shelly exemplifies commitment and excellence in her profession as a realtor. She is both a credit to her office and the real estate profession as a whole. Shelly has compassion, integrity, and is a good human being which is very important in life. Shelly’s excellent listening skills and detailed orientation make her an exceptional agent and a real asset to her organization. She also provides great insight and responsiveness.  During the whole process she was very interactive with me and the owner’s real estate agent. She and I worked very well as a team and the other people that she recommended were also great team players. We encountered a few huddles during the process which Shelly easily diffused. The morning of closing we had two situations occur, that could have been a disaster, but once again she handled them by being proactive. She would not quit until the issues were resolved. During my 40 years of real estate transactions (15) this was by far the best experience that I ever encountered due to Shelly. I would definitely recommend Shelly Coarson to anyone who needs a great real estate representative.” - Rob. B. 

“I wanted to write you with regards to the exceptional service my Mom and I received in finding a townhouse to rent. Not only was Shelly Coarson professional but she was very detailed in making sure she found us all if the amenities in our townhouse. She made every effort to meet us for every appointment of, showing us the property, to signing the lease to the final walk through. She is very customer driven and truly has a Magnetic personality. She truly loves what she does and it shows. We loved working with her!! You truly have an asset working at Coldwell banker and she should be commended. She represented your company to the fullest extent that was possible.” -Julie H.
