Meet Shelby, a dynamic real estate agent whose journey from mechanical engineer to real estate maven is as unique as it is inspiring. With a Master’s degree focused on Energy Efficient Building Systems, Shelby's passion for buildings isn't just a profession—it's a calling. Her early career as a mechanical engineer designing HVAC and plumbing systems for commercial buildings laid the groundwork for her deep understanding of building systems, an expertise she carries with her to this day.

But Shelby's heart yearned for more than just the technical side of things. Craving a fast-paced, competitive environment that allowed for closer connections with people, she made a bold move to the sales side as an Account Executive. Here, she not only sold but also managed commercial mechanical and plumbing contracting work, handling projects that ranged from $2 million to an impressive $60 million. This role wasn't just a job; it was a testament to her skill in managing budgets, clients, and her exceptional organizational abilities.

Despite her success, Shelby realized her true passion lay in serving others and making a tangible difference in their lives. This revelation led her to the world of real estate, a field that perfectly marries her love for buildings with her desire to help others directly. Her top professional skills—understanding building systems, knowledge in the construction industry, and a client-first approach—make her a standout real estate agent.

Shelby's drive and dedication were evident when she became the youngest person at her former corporate-world company to be promoted to Account Executive. Her leadership in winning the new ZoomInfo project in downtown Vancouver and setting it up for success is a professional highlight she holds dear.

At the core of Shelby's approach to work is her tenacity to serve others. She's motivated by the joy of helping, whether it's going the extra mile for her clients or supporting her teammates. Known for her problem-solving skills and willingness to tackle challenges, Shelby brings unparalleled value to her clients, always striving to find the best solutions for their needs.

Currently, Shelby is focused on personal growth, aiming to read 10 new personal & professional development books this year, buy her first investment property, and support her partner through nursing school. Her hobbies—fitness, cooking, reading, and learning—mirror her professional life, emphasizing her belief in continuous improvement and understanding.

What might surprise you about Shelby? Despite her professional success, she’s a self-proclaimed nerd at heart. A former Division 1 volleyball player in Texas, Shelby attributes her social skills to sports, despite her early inclinations towards chess and math clubs, and a preference for reading over nights out.

Shelby’s journey from engineering to real estate, her dedication to service, and her continuous pursuit of knowledge make her not just a skilled real estate agent, but a true advocate for her clients. Whether you’re buying your first home or seeking an investment property, Shelby’s unique blend of skills, passion, and dedication ensures you’re in the best hands.
