Shelley Cartier

Broker Associate

GRI, ASP

Shelley Cartier is a Texas Real Estate Broker with more than 30 years experience in real estate and residential finance. Additionally, Shelley holds the designation of GRI (Graduate Real Institute), is certified in Mediation and Texas Property Tax arbitration. She also holds the designation of ASP (Accredited Staging Professional). Combined, these areas of specialization set Shelley apart from most agents, allowing her to deliver exceptional expertise and service to her clients in all aspects of real estate transactions.  

A California native, Shelley came "home" to Texas, following her heritage which dates back to the Republic of Texas. Prior to moving to Texas, Shelley was the Broker/Owner of a boutique real estate company and ranked in the top 2% of agents in her San Francisco Bay Area market.  

After years of witnessing real estate agents who do the minimal, minimally, for their clients, and realizing that consumers did not really know what they should expect from a professional real estate agent, Shelley wrote the book “Lazy Listers - The Ultimate Guide To Avoiding Lazy Agents”. It is available free for download here: www.LazyLister.com 

When not working on behalf of clients to sell with ease or buy the perfect next home or investment property, Shelley can be found in her “Certified Wildlife Habitat” garden, hiking or walking along Ladybird Lake, sailing, or swing and tango dancing. That’s just one more reason to work with Shelley. She knows where all the fun in Austin can be found!

Shelley Cartier is the best! We met her in Bastrop at an open house that we had a casual interest in. She seemed to know her stuff and was very pleasant and likable from the get-go. Later, we became seriously interested in looking for a home further north of Austin. Our Realtor/friend in our small town didn't know that area, and my husband and I immediately thought of Shelley when we needed an agent to represent us in our search. After reading some great reviews of her, we contacted her, and she agreed to be our gal. Shelley literally, and figuratively, went out of her way to help us. Shelley had to make a number of out of town treks. We finally found our home and made an offer from out of state (1800 miles away, while on vacation), to further complicate the matter. Along with our son, Shelley was our eyes and ears, and she did whatever we needed her to do to get the deal done. She never complained or lost patience with us. Shelley's valuable knowledge/expertise, and super personality made our home buying experience pleasant and comfortable (as comfy as a huge decision to relocate 150 miles away from our previous home can be). We have found a new friend in our agent, not just a business associate. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND SHELLEY CARTIER!

Shelley is great. We used her for our very first transaction on our personal property when we moved to the area. She has been so knowledgeable and helpful; we continue to use her for our investment properties.

Working with Shelley was great. It was our first house, so we didn’t have much experience with the whole process, but Shelley helped make sense of all of it, offered advice when she thought we needed it, and overall just made the entire process painless and stress-free. She responded to my emails, my texts, and phone calls with zero delays and managed the hell out of our expectations. I plan on staying in this house for a while, but the next time around, I will call on Shelley w/o hesitation. She was a referral from a friend of mine, who recently purchased a house with Shelley’s help. I’m ready to pass on that great referral to the next person looking for a home. On top of being there with us at closing, she visited the house and put in a little garden for us. I mean, top-notch grade-A service and truly a wonderful experience!

Shelley Cartier recently listed and sold our home. We were delighted with Shelley’s professionalism, staging ability and market knowledge which allowed us to price and sell our home $47,000 over the last available comp. We also appreciated Shelley’s years of experience in the mortgage industry and insight into various financing options for our new home that she helped us purchase.

Shelley is a joy to work with! She helped me stage my home so it really looked like a model home. It never looked so good. The sale went smoothly and I didn’t have to wonder how we were progressing, as I’ve seen with other agents. It was like having a friend take care of the details.

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in the sale of my property. Not only did you go the extra mile in helping stage the home for showing, you were able to get me more than we listed the property for initially! I heartily recommend you to anyone and want you to know that if and when I purchase another property I’ll be contacting you! Thanks Again!

When we first met with Shelley Cartier about selling our home, she presented to us her marketing plan for success. And success is what we found, when our house sold shortly after listing it with Shelley. We appreciate the time Shelley spent getting our home staged, the internet presence on her website, and for responding to us in a timely manner whenever we had questions. We recommend to anyone looking for real estate representation, either as a seller or a buyer, to take the time to interview Shelley Cartier. We’re sure glad that we did.

Sincerely, Jane and Bill Stevenson

I just wanted to write you a brief note to thank you for all of your help with the purchase of our new home.To say we were nervous buyers is somewhat of an understatement! But you helped us through that and stayed ever patient as we took our time to become comfortable with what was such a huge purchase for us. I have already recommended your services to a coworker that you have subsequently represented to sell and buy and I will continue to recommend you in the future.

As a single homeowner, I had a difficult time finding a real estate agent. I interviewed 6 agents and each one appeared to have a mechanical approach to selling my home. When I met Shelley, I knew that she could get top dollar for my home...And that she did! The following are the top 9 reasons Shelley should be your 1st choice and #1 real estate resource:

9. She knew what upgrades to make and which ones to leave for the buyer.

8. She staged my home to make it look UNBELIEVABLY beautiful.

7. She knew exactly where to price my home and respected my bottom line price.

6. She understood when I got cold feet and talked me through the emotional roller coaster on numerous occasions. She always assured me that she would take it off the market if I changed my mind.

5. She returned every one of my phone calls in an unbelievably timely manner.

4. She ALWAYS looked impeccable and professional.

3. She fought for me when the first buyers backed out 2 days before closing.

2. She watched my pennies more closely than I did.

1. She loves her job and it shows in everything that she does.

It was clear to me after working with Shelley that her main motivation is driven by the fact that she wants to change the way people view the real estate industry. She gives to her community through honest service and integrity. In exchange, she hopes to gather plenty of happy customers who will refer their friends and family. Thanks, Shelley, you are the best. I am finally living my dream in Boulder, Co. and I never could have done it without your expertise, integrity, and great sense of humor.

Dear Shelley, I much appreciated your kindness, help, guidance, and explanations involved in the sale of my home. It was a difficult experience for me and you helped greatly.

Thank you, Ann Cockeridge

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in selling our home. As soon as the house was put on the market, we moved to Boise leaving you with the job of letting our painters, carpet cleaners, and house cleaners in to make the house presentable for sale. You never once made an objection to the demands we put on you. All during the closing you were right there with us, the buyers and the escrow company. You always kept us informed of the proceedings of the sale from long distance. We would highly recommend you to our friends in the area who are either looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks again for all your great work in selling our home in just 4 days at list price during a very volatile real estate market.

When we decided to sell our home there was no question as to who we would call to list the property. We heard from others that Shelley Cartier was one of the best in the industry. Our experience with Shelley throughout the listing process, open houses, and sale continued right through the closing and escrow process. Shelley’s knowledge, expertise and personal attention was exceptional and we recommend her without hesitation to anyone wishing to list and sell their home with the assistance of a professional. Shelley has an outstanding personality and the ability to instill confidence in the seller and to assure a rapid and easy sale. Anyone selecting Shelley to assist with the sale of their home will benefit from the advice and suggestions that she offers in preparing the home for sale as well as throughout the process. Shelley receives our highest recommendation!

My wife and I just wanted to to know that we appreciate all the work you put into making sure our home could sell in time to close on the purchase of our new home. Your innovative way of presenting our home for sale by having it priced right and the “staging” advice you gave us proved priceless. We still cannot believe it SOLD in 11 days during the month of December when sales are typically slow. We are both thankful for your professionalism and would not hesitate to recommend your service to anyone selling or buying a home. We are certain of your continued success because we have experienced the quality of service you provide this says a lot from two individuals who work in the same industry! Again, many thanks for a job well done and much appreciated!

I just wanted to take a moment, now that escrow has closed on my home, to thank you for handling the sale of my home. From the very start, you handled your representation of my property in a professional manner. Your suggestions on staging were perfect. In such a slow market, the fact that I received two offers within two weeks of putting my house on the market and selling over asking price, speaks volumes about your expertise. Also, as I was living out of the area, it was especially important that I have a Realtor that I could trust. As you may recall, one weeknight about 7:30 pm, I got a call from an agent who couldn’t get into my place to show a potential clients. I called you and not only did you go over immediately to correct the problem with the lock but you even called the agent and arranged to meet her, along with her client, at my home! And when my home was in escrow and the buyers wanted several small things done, you went above and beyond the call of duty by changing the air filter yourself! These are just a few examples of the many ways in which you responded to my needs. I would be happy to refer you to anyone, and my only regret is that I have moved out of the area and won’t be able to use your services myself again. You were fantastic!

Shelley Cartier has recently sold our property for us. Our property was only on the market for approximately one month. We find her to be very fast, efficient, and detailoriented in her profession. She will go that extra mile for you. We recommend Shelley very highly. She definitely is an asset to her profession.

Sincerely, Bob and Judy Moreland

Jean and I want to thank you for selling our home so quickly, and at a price higher than we anticipated. We were very impressed with our professional, yet casual, friendly, and courteous style. Your enthusiasm, high energy, and personal charm, helped to provide us with a quick and painless sale. Thank you again, Shelley, for your assistance. Jean and I are very appreciative! If I’m ever in need of a residential sales representative, you will be the one I call.

Thank you for your professional work in selling our home this month. As you know, we chose your service over several personal friends of ours who are also in the real estate business. You helped us stage our home, prepare it for the highest value sale and you even helped us arrange for the repairs we needed to make to close the sale. Bottom line, within 5 days of putting our home on the market, we had seven offers. In the end, we were able to sell it for $65,000 more than we had expected. I’m sure you cannot promise those kinds of results to all of your clients but if any were to ask me, I would tell them that you are the most serviceoriented and professional Realtor we have dealt with in the 30 years that we have been buying and selling homes.

I wanted to thank you for your efforts and expertise in helping me sell my home. I really appreciate your willingness to listen to my objectives and help me price my home correctly. Also your fantastic talent for staging was key in getting the price I wanted from my home. It was great the way you put several of my furniture pieces to their best advantage, it made the rooms so much more appealing. It was great working with you.

Thank you for the great job you did in selling our home and representing us. I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful the experience working with you was, compared to our initial experience with our previous Realtor. Your professionalism and thoroughness was very refreshing! In my opinion, you go above and beyond “full service”! As a broker myself, and having spent over 20 years in new home sales and marketing, I am aware of the hard work and energy it takes to get a home sold in today’s market. I appreciate you keeping us updated throughout the listing and sales process and I was amazed at how quickly you were able to complete our transaction. It was also a great touch when you showed up at our signing appointments at the title company. We appreciated the fact that you took the time to be there even though we signed our documents at different times and you had to be there twice! When you are selling a relatively high end property, it is very reassuring to know that you have a Realtor who cares so much about the transaction! Please refer any potential clients to us and we will let them know how great it was to work with you!

I’m writing to tell you how very pleased Sarah and I have been with your representation during the selling of our home. As you know, it had been over 20 years since we had engaged in this exercise. Nonetheless, I knew what an emotional experience it would be. We had known for some time that we would be moving, since construction on our future home had been completed. As you may recall, we met you at an open house in the neighborhood and we were very impressed with your eye and your presentation. When the time came to sell, although I know perhaps a dozen Realtors personally, you were our choice. And a wise choice it was. Right from the beginning you gave us help staging our home for maximum potential. You answered all of our questions, and got us rolling. You referred us to carpet folks, floor refinishers, painters, a chimney and fireplace guy, and you were able to get the spa people to move when I had been unable to get any action whatsoever. All of the people you recommended did fine work, and it was obvious that they all had a positive professional relationship with you. We got our house ready to show, repainted, recarpeded and detailed in 24 daysÍž we could not have done it without you. You and your staff remained very positive and supportive when it looked as though no one was interested. As it turned out, all of your predictions, like your advice, proved to be accurate. We would have been happy to pay 7% or more for your services. And the capper is that you were a delight to work with. You’re so bright and fun that it made the whole experience more pleasant. Many Thanks.

We want you to know what a pleasure it has been doing business with you. Right from the start you made us feel secure in our choice of Realtors. Thank you for your help staging our home and the valuable information you gave us that sold our house quickly. You were always professional in the way that you handled the paperwork and financial side of the sales. We appreciate your returning our calls and answering all our questions. You guided us through the process without any difficulty. You enabled us to sell our home quickly and for more than we thought possible!

Thank you so much for selling the house on behalf of my mother. You sold her house in an unbelievable 2 days! Your enthusiasm, efficiency, and professionalism in selling her home was so much appreciated. You walked me through every step of the process. What started out as a desire to help my mother sell her home as quickly as possible, ended with meeting someone who is truly a professional.

After 8 weeks on the MLS with another Realtor we received no offers, even after we lowered our asking price 3 times. Still nothing. Then we heard about Shelley Cartier from a mutual friend that she can really sell a house even where other agents tried and failed. So we asked her to list our house to see if she really was as good as her reputation. After 2 weeks, we had an offer at full asking price. Of course, we accepted the offer and praised Shelley for her speedy success. We can honestly say Shelley is a hardworking real estate agent and can produce results when other agents cannot. We highly recommend Shelley as your real estate agent for all your real estate needs.

I was very satisfied with the way that Shelley Cartier handled the sale of my home. The entire transaction was handled very effectively and my home sold quicker than I expected. I consider Shelley to be a very professional Realtor, who gets quick and positive result. I would definitely use Shelley’s services for any of my future real estate transactions. She gets the job done and does it well.

Thank you for working with us on the sale of our home. With your help, the transaction proceeded very smoothly and we got a fair price. To top it off, you were very professional in all our dealings, did an excellent job helping us stage our home, and consistently kept us informed about the details of our transaction. Your knowledge and enthusiasm for your work really shows and helped make a potentially stressful process much more enjoyable. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Shelley Cartier is an outstanding Realtor. She is very professional, warm, patient, and conscientious. She worked very hard for us and was extremely thorough. Her experience in “staging” was proven by the many comments we received from potential buyers and their agents. We highly recommend Shelley for your real estate needs.
