CHECK OUT THE REST, BUT WORK WITH THE BEST!
"Rachel is amazing the sale of our house was very complicated my boyfriend of 27 years pasted away in January and the sale was through a trust. We two party's of the trust were not getting along and Rachel handled that very well. If it wasn't for friends and family I could have never gotten the house ready for sale and poor Rachel having to listen to my complaining all of the time. But to make it short we were 10 days late putting the house on the market we had 3 offers in less than 48 hours we excepted a full price offer and Les would have been very proud of her so Rachel I give you an excellent rating thank you."
"Thanks to Rachel Sheller, my house just closed without a single hitch and for more money than I had hoped it would fetch! I met with Rachel early in the process, as I interviewed multiple realtors. Rachel stood out as the one realtor who was confident, enthusiastic, and genuinely interested in helping me on my journey to a new living situation. All along the way, Rachel supported and guided me as I sold my first house, after 18 years living there. She made recommendations for what to fix, what to leave alone, where to put my labor and love, and how to get the house ready to be put on the market. She worked with her team of amazing professionals to take beautiful pictures and created flyers, postcards and media pages that really made my house shine. The whole experience was easier than I had imagined with Rachel’s expertise—she held my hand and gave me regular reports about what she was doing behind the scenes and the feedback we were getting from showings and the open house. Once we got an offer, Rachel kept everything moving smoothly and efficiently and with the least inconvenience to me, as I was still living in the house. She gave me sage advice and communicated often via text and email to coordinate appointments, inspections and workers. I knew that I could contact her at any time with questions or concerns. I appreciated that decisions were always left up to me and I never felt pushed or pressured to follow her recommendations. But it was advice based on decades of experience, so I often did exactly what she said. In the end, I would recommend Rachel to anyone who loves their home and wants to find a new owner that is excited to buy it. Rachel is the best and I would be thrilled to work with her again in the future!"
"Rachel is a wonderful real estate agent. She recently helped me sell my mother's house. She is very knowledgeable and has a wide range of creative ideas to help sell your home. What I personally appreciated about Rachel was her communication, reliability, and advice. In my opinion what sets Rachel apart from other real estate agents, is her willingness to go the extra mile to help her clients. Like myself, you would be so fortunate to have her as your real estate agent."
“Rachel is amazing! I thought buying my first home would be scary and overwhelming, but Rachel made it so easy! She helped me through ever step of the way. I highly recommend Rachel!"
"Rachel’s knowledge, negotiating expertise and experience, combined to make it possible for us to relax during a stressful process and rely on her quick responses to keep us informed. Our sale was successful and professional - we would, and will be recommending Rachel to friends and family alike. Thank you so much!"
Christy & Gordon Canzler
"Rachel provides the best comprehensive information and professionalism at all times. Turns the most stressful time into joy. I would highly recommend Rachel for any of your real estate transactions you may have."
"Rachel was referred to us by our CPA after dad passed away last year and we were faced with the decision to sell the home our parents had lived in for 65 years. Rachel's guidance and expertise gave us the confidence we needed to move forward to sell their home and also purchase another home to relocate Mom. We couldn't be happier with the professional, attentive help and guidance we received, Rachel was beside us for every step and answered all of our questions and kept us informed of the things we wouldn't have known to ask before problems could arise. The selling and buying process has was easier then we could have hoped thanks to Rachel, we didn't need to wonder what to do next because she was always one step ahead. I would highly recommend Rachel Sheller to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you, Rachel!!"
Barbara Greer- Gleason Estates
"Can not thank Rachel enough! We sold our home after living in it for 37 years! She held our hand, walked us through every step of the listing and sale and even when I was uncertain about things she was concerned enough to make sure we understood EVERYTHING!! I have referred her to many people and will continue to do so! Again, we can never thank her enough!"
Karen & Darrell
"We were extremely fortunate to work with Rachel as both our buying and selling agent. We did the two simultaneously, which was an adventure, to say the least. The entire time, Rachel was a consummate professional, the expert in our corner. She is always ready with advice and answers based on her wealth of expertise and experience. Those years in the industry have led to Rachel’s deep connections and insights throughout the process. At every point, she knew people to call and experts to engage. In addition, the only quality that outshines Rachel’s professionalism is her personality. From the moment we met her, Rachel treated us like old friends. She was empathetic, encouraging, and was always willing to crawl into whatever hole we were in with us, without judgement. No matter who we were working with (bank, buyer, seller, inspector, etc), Rachel was always an ally for us completely. Good luck on whichever aspect of this process you’re embarking. If you’re feeling lost or confused and looking for a friend and associate, give Rachel Sheller a call. You will not be disappointed."
"Rachel is the GOAT - Greatest of all Time! We were referred by a family friend, and couldn't be happier. Once you've got pre-approval and she knows you're serious, you are off to the races! We found a house VERY quickly and Rachel was a BULLDOG to ensure our offer was competitive and accepted. She knew just what to say to get the selling agent wrapped around her finger, and negotiated highly in our favor. She linked us with a phenomenal team, from mortgage broker to inspections and beyond, and the relationship she has with her colleagues and assistants is what made this a smooth process. Friends and family have been shocked at how quick, smooth, and pain-free our first home purchase has been. I'll never use another realtor if I can help it! Customer for life."
Brian & Gabrielle
"Rachel helped us sell our home in Gresham after a job change moved us out of state. Even though we couldn’t be there in person for every step, she kept us very informed. She was very helpful at every step of the way, kept in touch with us, and she answered all of our questions. My husband and I would gladly work with her again."
Rachel & Bradley
"Rachel is always on top of things during the entire process. She is thorough with the sale documents. She kept me well informed with the feedback from the potential buyers. Anytime difficulties arise, she knows how to handle it. Rachel is very professional and passionate about selling your home. I would highly recommend her if you are thinking of selling your home. You wouldn't find a better realtor than Rachel. Her and her sales team are amazing. Thank you to Rachel and her team for another successful sale."
“Our family has purchased two homes with Rachel and we can’t imagine working with anyone else. She’s like family. Rachel has weathered the ups and downs of the crazy market with us and always done it with a positive outlook. She’s supportive, knowledgeable, and results driven. The perfect combination of genuine and professional.”
Tosha & Justin
"Rachel Sheller is hands down the best Realtor! I recommend her to everyone I know. I recently purchased a house and she was tremendously helpful throughout every step of the buying process. I had lots of questions and she provided helpful answers for everyone one of them. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in the real estate market. She guided me in the right direction when I was unsure where to go. I truly felt like I could fully open up to her with all of my intentions, ideas and future plans. This is my second home purchase with her and I will continue to buy my future homes with her expertise and guidance."
Pablo & Stephanie Martinez
"We chose Rachel Sheller as our realtor because of her positive, "can do" approach. She never let us down. Rachel kept us informed and was always on top of the status of our sale. I wouldn't go to anyone else. She is a very hard worker and helped us get a great sale to closing. She's the best!"
"Rachel has been in my family for many years helped my parents sell there first house and we kept in touch ever since . She Made it easy for us even with the pandemic going on we were able to purchase our First home. Always available to us and answer any questions we had and made out process really easy . overall She’s an awesome person to work with ."
I just wanted to write and say thank you taking such good care of me in my time of need. When my cousin passed the end of April, I needed someone to help me with selling her home. Being that she and I were close. It was not an easy thing to do. I must say you were at my disposal whenever I need your help getting through the process by answering questions, helping with getting through so much paper work and so kind and understanding with my losing a very close family member. I'm also so greatful that you did this in such a short time. I truly would be so happy to recommend you to anyone I know. But especially if they need someone special that can handle complicated business and still have the concerns of their client first. Thank you so very much for all your hard work."
"If you need someone who knows the real estate business, knows the market, will walk with you the whole time and be available to make things happen and be your champion in negotiations, you need Rachel! As a first time homebuyer there is only so much you can learn from online articles and resources, Rachel’s skills and expertise were so helpful and made this process so smooth in an insanely competitive market. She makes sure that you understand each step of the process and encourages questions. She communicates quickly and always makes sure we see both sides of a situation so we can make the best decision. I could not imagine what this process would be like without her!!"
Lily Annah Wanous & Tyler Daniel Harry
"Rachel deserves MORE than 5 stars!! Without her knowledge, encouragement, kindness and awesomeness I would not be a home owner today. She is a Real Estate extraordinaire, giving expert advice and service in a truly caring way. She knows her stuff and I have been blessed having her by my side from start to finish. I am now a proud home owner. Thank you Rachel!"
"Rachel Sheller is awesome! She helped us every step of the way, she was always available to answer any questions we might have had, and really made us feel comfortable with the whole process. Rachel gave us a lot of great pointers that directly translated into our house selling for over our asking price!! Our experience with her was 100% positive and we cannot recommend her enough. Thanks, Rachel!!!"
Michael and Shelly Rodden
"We love Rachel. This was our third time working with her and as always, she was amazing. Rachel kept us informed, provided guidance and worked on our behalf through the whole process of purchasing our home. We have recommended her to friends because we know Rachel will provide the highest level of service to them as she has to us. Thank you, Rachel, for being a FABULOUS Real Estate Agent!"
Jim and Billie DeMaagd
"Rachel is a hustler in the best ways. She works quickly and knowledgeably with both her client and seller agent to provide all the necessary information to move the sale along. She’s always available and willing to meet clients and individuals necessary to accomplish their jobs. She is goal-oriented with the knowledge to assist clients in reaching their own goals. She is a pleasure to work with and I will work with her again."
Colleen Hill Hogan
"Rachel was a pleasure to work with. She made the buying process feel effortless. Great knowledge of both the market and the buying process and was always on top of the timelines and making sure we didn’t miss a beat. Always communicating every step of the way. Best real estate experience I’ve had."
"Rachel Sheller helped us to sell a beloved home that we owned for 27 years. The house was very special to us and she handled our sale with great care. She was right there with us like a friend every step of the way. Rachel likes to make sure her clients are up to the moment on the progress of a home sale and she did an awesome job. We never had to wonder what was happening with any aspect of the transaction.
Rachel's expertise, intelligence and most of all, wonderful heart for people and homes goes far beyond any agent we have ever worked with. Rachel is now our agent for life and as she says, "it's a good life"
"Rachel was able to get us the house we wanted very quickly and was very professional and accommodating when it came to appointments and showings she also laid all our options on the table for us and was straight forward about details there was no hidden agendas if I or we get the chance to work with Rachel again in the future we absolutely will no questions asked."
Michael and Tiffany Schultz
"Working with Rachel to sell my mom's house was a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE from start to finish! At the very beginning she described all the major steps in the home sale process. She gave us excellent advice on things to do to get the house ready for listing. When we got EIGHT SOLID OFFERS she took plenty of time to go over the pros and cons of each one. Once the sale was "pending" she kept us posted as the appraisal, inspection, buyers loan, and escrow processes moved along. You hear lots of horror stories from buyers and sellers so I was prepared for things to "go south" but that never happened. There wasn't a single glitch, hiccup, or surprise. While we don't know everything that Rachel did for us, I know that when the "front-facing" things go that smoothly, it's because Rachel was "behind the scenes" anticipating and attending to the ten thousand little details that are part of a sale"
"Choosing Rachel to help us find and purchase a home was the right choice!! She helped me sell my home three years ago and was amazing, so when my boyfriend and I decided to look into buying a house I reached out to her knowing we'd be in good hands. Rachel's integrity and kindness made the process comfortable, easy, fun, and stress-free as possible. This was very important to and Nels quickly become comfortable with her. She's a strong negotiator with impressive follow-up skills. trust me ' she's on it like a dog with a bone. On more than one occasion he'd ask 'does she ever stop?' She has a network of professionals she works with to make sure scheduled deadlines are met. It's evident Rachel has a heart for people and a passion for making anyone's real estate dreams come true. Choose Rachel, you'll be glad you did!"
"Rachel, I want to tell you what a pleasure it was to work with you in the sale of my home. You really went the extra mile for me and your attention to detail was amazing. I could not have been better taken care of. I will be recommending you to anyone that is looking to sell or buy real estate. Thank You."
"Rachel was an amazing agent to us! She explained the entire process from start to finish before we even began searching for homes. She shows the entire range of homes that fit your price and was able to beat out a competing buyer to get us our dream home! We will be using her for all real estate needs in the future! 5/5 stars"
Jefferson and Kayla Ivie
"Looking for the home of your dreams? Rachel is amazing!! When I heard about a friends experience buying their first home I knew I needed Rachel as my real estate agent! As a first time home buyer knowing little about the process, my boyfriend and I were nervous about all the little details. Rachel educated and guided us through the entire buying process and provided helpful information to us in our first meeting. She's very professional, personable and a go getter! We found our dream home within a few weeks with persistent searching. With the competitive market, we were nervous about making our offer. Rachel made sure to prepare our offer putting our best foot forward which ultimately got us the home! I couldn't be happier with our entire experience and would recommend anyone looking to find their dream home to Rachel"
"I always knew if I were ever to sell my home I would have Rachel do it. Her reputation precedes her! Rachel knows her stuff. She knows who to call and how to get it done. You have questions Rachel gets answers. Dedicated and knowledgeable. And nice!! She stuck with it and made it all work and was there with a shoulder to cry on if needed. After all that, found a perfect new home and literally made it happen. You won't go wrong with Rachel. She gets the job done and becomes a friend in the process."
"Thank you kindly for helping us the 3rd time getting us the perfect house. You are an amazing realtor and as well an amazing person. Thank You!"
"Rachel is nothing less than amazing. We sold our home during an emotionally difficult situation and she was immediately there to help and reassure us every step of the way. What seemed to start as a pretty cut and dry situation turned very difficult, she was patient with my weekly (probably more) melt downs, and she fought for our best interest. When dealing with people who were anything but professional she always stayed classy. I will definitely be calling Rachel the next time I need a realtor. Her years of experience and passion for people makes her the best around."
"I have known Rachel for over 13 years, this is not the first time I have worked with her. Rachel is always very professional, attentive to detail and easy to work with... she never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. She works hard for her clients and deserves the highest praise. I would highly recommend anyone seeking a truly professional realtor to connect with Rachel. Thank you Rachel for your VERY hard work and dedication. We truly appreciate it."
"I had thought about selling my home in Milwaukie for some time but never really got off the couch and did anything about it. One day after work I took a drive to the area that I wanted to live and found a few homes for sale. I had searched for a house with land, as I was looking for a little piece of earth to raise my family. We lived in suburbia and I commuted all my life; I was ready for a change. The house I was looking at was located in Boring, Oregon on a great piece of land and was being sold by Sheller Real Estate, Oregon First. On my way home after work I called the number on the sign and that is when I was first introduced to Rachel Sheller! We talked for a good half hour and the great energy and vibe I got from that one conversation; I knew that I wanted this person to represent my family and myself in this HUGE life undertaking. My wife, kids and I met Rachel for the first time at my home in Milwaukie. We sat down and went through the usual proceedings of a home sale and Rachel was very informative, upfront and honest. After deciding on a sale date, we all rolled up our sleeves and went to work. If you have never sold a home you are in for a roller coaster ride. My wife and I went through emotions of stress, happiness, sadness and fear but through it all Rachel made sure that we were always comfortable. We sold our home within the timeline promised and we were very satisfied with Rachel's performance and professionalism that we continued our journey with her to buy our next family home. The move was strange for us all. We had moved back into my parents basement and the kids were on summer vacation. Each day I had my Zillow and Trulia feeds going and at moment's notice Rachel was always willing to go show us a home whether it was morning or night. At times living with y parents again would strike the fear in me that needed to find a home sooner rather than later, but Rachel would always reel me back and assure me that the right home would come along. Rachel just wasn't our realtor she became much more. Beyond the business side to her she was very down to earth and wouldn't pass judgment no matter what you had to say. Selling and buying a home is probably a top 5 in your life that can make and break a person, because if it's your actual home you leave a lot of emotions on the table. If I had to do it all over again, Rachel Sheller would be by my side. Thank you Rachel."
Mike Cassie and Leland Layla-Kern
"I would like to thank Rachel Sheller for listing and selling our house in Pleasant Valley. They always say give your business to a busy person who gets things done in record time. The inspection report listed some items that needed attention before the sale went through. We needed help from several contractors and I live in Florida. No problem within days Rachel had rounded up the contractors and the work was done on time and the sale safely closed. I called Rachel the diplomat because she knew how to speak to the contractor and the purchaser's agent in a way that kept everyone happy."
