A Companywide Top Producer
2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019
Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS)
Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE)
Third Generaton Houstonian
As a companywide Top Producer five consecutive years, Shelly Porter's model of success includes developing a tailored plan to fit the needs of each client. While she specializes in the luxury market - she is an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist, she gives the same unparalleled quality of service regardless of price level and has a soft spot for helping young families and first-time home buyers.
As a native Houstonian, Shelly has lived in several different neighborhoods so she understands the "big picture" of Houston's sometimes incomprehensible-to-outsiders Real Estate market, a quality that pays dividends for her clients.
Although she has developed a no-pressure attitude, she is influential at the negotiating table and has earned a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) designation. Shelly has a broad base of satisfied clients who know they can trust her to deliver their Real Estate priorities.
Her family, longtime residents of the Memorial area, includes her husband, their son, daughter-in-law, and a Cavalier King Charles puppy. Before becoming a Realtor, Shelly attended Texas State University followed by a career in retail sales. She attributes her love for and knowledge of homes and design to her decorator mother and both parents who owned an art gallery and sold antiques and accessories.
Shelly has been an active community volunteer for many years for numerous organizations including the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Habitat for Humanity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Toys for Tots, American Heart Association, Go Red for Women, Preservation Houston, Memorial Women's Club, and World Vision as a Child Sponsor. She is also a three-time recipient of the Junior League's Volunteer Extraordinaire Award.
"Shelly's the best! She's incredibly knowledgeable about the market and knows the Houston area inside and out. She's a tough negotiator too and was continually looking out for our best interests during the entire process. Shelly was a pleasure to work with in every way! She has a great personality, is easy to spend time with, optimistic and inspires complete confidence. Shopping for houses with Shelly is like spending the day with a good friend!" ~ Client Testimonial

Facebook has an app that you can use to edit photos once they''ve been posted. It allows you to write on the photos as well and add your banner. Here''s how to edit your pictures using the Facebook app:
First, open the Facebook app and tap the "Photo" button at the top of your phone screen.
Next, select the image (or images) you want to edit. Tap "Done" in the upper right-hand corner once you''ve made your selection.
Add a filter by swiping your finger left across the image. You''ll see a vertical white line pass over the image for each of the seven different filters: Auto, Vintage, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and Snow. I used the "Auto" filter which sharpened the lines and colors in my picture.
Touch anywhere on the image to add text. You''ll see "Text" icon appear on the bottom of your screen. Tap this icon once.
Next, tap the "T" icon to add text.
Tap the screen and type your chosen text. To change the color of your text, drag your finger up and down the rainbow on the right side of your screen. You can also change the size and angle of your text by dragging the words using two fingers.
You can add as many captions as you like by repeating this process. Each one can be a different color and size.
To add a sticker, tap the "Stickers" icon at the bottom of your screen and follow the same steps you used to add text.
Position and re-size the sticker by dragging it across the screen using two fingers.
When you''re done editing, tap "Save" in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
Hope this helps! ~Shelly
We are starting to see a slowdown in certain neighborhoods, but we still have a lot of pent-up demand from buyers who have been waiting for their opportunity to purchase. Although no one can predict the future, we''re still in a housing shortage in many neighborhoods and the market remains strong for sellers. Homes are still moving quickly. And with interest rates still remaining low, people are eager to buy.
How long will the strong market last? No one knows for certain, though Dr. Ted Jones, the chief economist for Stewart Title, predicted that Houston will return to a balanced market over the next year. Only time will tell if he is right!
Yes, you might still be able to enter a back-up offer. Although pending homes generally do go to closing, sometimes things can happen that make the deal fall apart. You should speak to your agent about placing a back-up offer on the house, and if accepted, this would place you next in line if the first contract falls through.
