Don't Just Take Our Word For It!

My husband and I just closed on our home today. We are so very excited!!! Dana Welch, our realtor, is an amazing person! She was by our side every step of the way from looking at houses to the closing. She was always by our side helping and supporting us. She knows the real estate process very well. She knew exactly what we were looking for. She is very professional yet friendly. To us shes not just a realtor but now a friend! Dana is the best! Sue, at Pro Real Estate, is the best too! She was always friendly when I went into the office to have documents scanned and sent to the lender. There was one time I called Pro Real Estate at 4:55pm (5pm is when the office closes) and she stayed later to scan and send documents. She too is very professional but very friendly. Very welcoming! They arent trying to sell you a house for the $$$. They are trying their best to find their clients homes that they will love for years to come. Dana Welch found us our perfect forever home. I highly recommend Dana for your home buying experience! You will not be disappointed!

Marnie is absolutely amazing and went out of her way to help me and get showings to accommodate my crazy schedule. If you need any help ask her!! She is amazing and next time i need to move i will be asking Marnie to help me! My 3 year old even loved her!

Extremely professional. Pro real estate (Mark & Candy) went way above and beyond to take care of us and get our house sold. I highly recommend them.

Dana was absolutely amazing in the entire home buying process. I have purchased multiple homes and she was by far the most thorough. She checked previous history for all of the properties we looked at, improvements made, fair list price. I would absolutely recommend Dana to anyone relocating to the area or just looking for something new!

Knows the area well. Returned My calls/emails almost instantly,off hours,Saturday and Sunday included. Got just what I wanted in about a week or so. Thanks Dana.

Judy was always there for us at a moments notice. She made looking for a home a fun experience and was always upbeat. Absolutely loved doing business with Judy.

Thanks again

Mark and Candy were so wonderful to work with. They listened to all of our needs and helped us find the perfect home without rushing us to make a decision. They are honest and give great feedback. They go above and beyond for their clients & I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thanks again Mark & Candy Shell!

Excellence, flawless, easy to work with, knowledgeable, helpful, experienced, very up front and HONEST, trustworthy. I would give their names to my mother, but my Mom gave them to me. You will have an excellent buying experience I promise, and they stick with you the whole way through

Dana helped us buy our first home. She was very knowledge and helped us if we had any questions. She was also able to show us houses with short notice. She is very responsive to any calls, emails, or texts. I would recommend Dana to others because she is friendly and will have your best interest at heart

Marnie helped sell my property in Diamond and it could not have gone better. She took charge of the selling process and coordinated everything from the showings to the minor repair to be made after the home inspection to the appraisal. The best part is she did this with and selling price that was within about 5% of the asking price! The closing could not have gone smoother. I highly recommend her and Pro Real Estate!

Would like to Thank profusely, Chris Shell, from Pro Real Estate for everything he has done to finally find us a home!🏠We have had the pleasure of knowing him, and his family, for the 20 years we have lived out here, and they are the nicest, kindest, most patient people! Chris has always gone above and beyond for us, and for my family, to help out in any way possible and putting up with us sometimes is no easy task😉. He made our home buying experience so smooth and easy and was always there to answer any questions or concerns. Thank you so much to Chris Shell, pro real estate, Jeff Fisher, and the loan officers at First Midwest Bank for all of your kind help to make this such a great time in our lives!! We are so grateful!!

We worked with Chris on looking and purchasing our 1st home. His knowledge, input, and interpretation of the market for are area was so helpful. My wife loved how he could point out things she wasnt seeing. Chris was sure to tell her what she should be worried about or not be worried about when looking at things. He offered his honest opinion on pricing verses the market on what we was looking at. We loved that he was always able to work on getting us into see something fast because the market was so hot in the range we was looking. We wouldn't use or recommend anyone else in the market to buy or sell. Chris is the ultimate professional and friend when your looking for your next big investment

If anyone is looking to buy a home or sell their home I highly recommend Chris Shell. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor! He is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to point out the good and bad things he sees in a house which I found really helpful. I cannot thank him enough for his patience while we tried to figure out what we wanted in a house. Once we found our home he was there to help us every step of the way and I honestly believe he had our best interests at heart. He truly was excited for us that we found our home. Chris is a great realtor and a great person!

Mark & Candy Shell and Chris Shell are the tops. You won't find a more honest and straight forward person than Mark. I have a listing with them now and have known them for 21 years since I bought my house through them in town here in Wilmington. 12/3/17 My listing has been sold and as usual Mark Shell makes everything easy which makes me happy!

I'd like to give a huge shout out to Chris Shell with Pro Real Estate for selling my Mom's house so quickly! This was my first experience selling a home and wasn't sure what to expect, but Chris is so wonderful and knowledgeable that he made this transition of selling my mom's home less difficult. So if anyone needs a realtor now or in the future please give Chris a call! Thanks Chris!

Outstanding communication, detailed explanation of every process from posting to closing, more showings the first 2 weeks than the previous 6 months with another realtor. Assisted with any issue. Total professionals that made you feel like they were friends!

A good communicator, hard worker and great sales person! Since the house I sold was in a different state, Marine went out of her way doing things to pass the buyers requirements. Thank you Marnie Jones

Marnie was wonderful to work with!! She was very helpful and told us how it is, not just telling us what we want to hear. She was excellent and responded to questions day or night.

Judy did a phenomenal job with our project. She is courteous, thorough and always professional. She communicated consistently and worked very hard to close the deal. Additionally, she was very fast in this entire process. We highly recommend Judy for any real estate transaction.
