About Me

Here’s a little about me-I was born and raised in Iowa, I am one of the youngest in my family. I have three sisters and one brother…who happens to be my twin! I’m older by 2 minutes!

I am an Army Veteran. I joined the Army reserves in 1986 and was trained as a Supply Specialist initially, then onto Administrative Specialist and finally, trained as a Finance Specialist.  My favorite award I received during my reserve days, was The Army Achievement Medal for being selected as the “Outstanding Soldier of the Year”.  My drive for excellence has been with me a long time and I brought it with me to my real estate career.

Between my husband and I we have….. 5 boys. The “boys” are actually young men at this stage, ages 21yr-29yr. Three boys are married and one has blessed us with two beautiful grand girls!!  Two are Marines serving our country proudly.

I began my real estate career in July of 2007. That was the high time of quick sales, then came the era of foreclosures and short sales with the housing crisis. My real estate career involves years of various transactions involving those foreclosures, short sales along with new construction, resale and property management. I could not be happier helping sellers, buyers and tenants respectfully, sell and find their new home.

In 2016, I took on the task of studying for my Brokers license and with lots of determination and studying; I passed the exam in July! I am very proud to be an Associate Broker with Century 21 Redwood.

In my down time- I love to hang out with my husband. We exercise together whether it’s at the gym, biking, swimming or walking our neighborhood. We enjoy cooking, entertaining, traveling, visiting wineries and attending festivals.  My husband is from DC and is an AVID DC sports fan so I am enjoying now, more than ever the Nationals baseball, the Redskins football and the Capitals Hockey team.

That’s the short version of me. I would be glad to talk to you about your real estate needs and hopefully be able to help you!

Testimonials

“Shelly was there for me throughout buying process. Communicating with the builder making sure that all the little details were in place. She really listened to my needs and delivered. What makes her stand out is that, during the closing she was not supposed to be there because of this pandemic but she was there with me in another room on a speaker phone to make sure that everything goes on well and after closing gave me a starter basket full of goodies. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family because she is very knowledgeable about what she does and pay attention to the buyer's needs. Thank you so much Shelly Gale.”

“Shelly Gale is fantastic, I will recommend her to anyone I know who is selling or buying. We have bought and sold 3 homes, and Shelly is the best realtor we have ever worked with. I cannot say enough good things about her. Professional, kind, knowledgable, always available, and so sweet! We loved working with her!”

“From day one that we met Shelly and told her that we were moving and buying another home she planned everything perfectly so that we were able to buy another home and sell our home all within a months time. We told her our needs and concerns and she exceeded all of our expectations. We are so happy and blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such a experienced professional. I would recommend Shelly to any of my friends or relatives without reservation. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish. I feel that we actually had a perfect sale while working with Shelly. Shelly’s marketing strategy coupled with her experience of home sales in the area was exceptional. Her advertising of our home was exceptional and the brochures she had made was very impressive and is why our home was only on the market for day. Shelly also guided us and answered all of our questions along the way and made herself accessible at all times. I could go on and on but Shelly could not have done a better job than what she did. ”

“Shelly Gale is a fantastic negotiator with a can-do attitude. Her “roll up her sleeves” approach toward the home sale process is why we have used her in the last seven real estate transactions we have made. We sold our home in five days at over asking price with no seller subsidy—couldn’t ask for a better result!”

“This agent is top notch. I loved her professional experience, that she is a member of the community, and even more importantly a Veteran. Knowledge of Veteran benefits is a critical component for families utilizing these benefits. In addition, knowledge base of the local community helps acclimate new citizens to the community in a welcoming way. It gives us a sense of belonging in our unrooted life. Shelly was willing to take the time to help us find the home that met the needs we were seeking. She was quick to respond to all questions and seek out answers if she was unclear or did not know. She is the best all the way around! She will always be our agent, and we will be sure to share her with anyone who even mentions they are looking for the best! ”

“Shelly was outstanding and made the purchasing experience a lot less stressful. There were a lot of moving parts and we always felt we could count on Shelly to help us navigate the process. My wife and I were very fortunate to have worked with Shelly. She is a true asset to Century 21. Thanks to Shelly we found our forever home and I am certain she will continue to help others find their perfect home as well. ”

“I absolutely loved Shelly Gale as our agent, She gave us as much information as possible and gave us great recommendations. Any time we had a question about any homes in the area we were looking at she would get back to us very quickly. She always gave us the facts on any home we were looking at. If there was anything she didn't have information about, she would immediately contact someone or give us a specific person to contact. She made our experience as first time home owners much smoother.”

“Shelly Gale was always one step ahead in anticipating our questions and in obtaining what we needed. She acted as if this were her own home purchase and wanted to make sure she was confident in all aspects on our behalf. While Shelly may not have had first hand knowledge of all of the remote areas where we were looking, she readily provided detailed local knowledge by taking the initiative to reach out to her extensive network and make sure all of our questions and concerns were answered.”

Shelly is great. it is that simple. she answered every question in a timely manner and had our best interests at heart through the whole process. Shelly understands your situation no matter how unique. We had to drive long distances and on particular days to get to the area.

“This was a difficult sale due to the fact that we actually had to pay at closing to get out of the property. Shelly did everything in her power to make that cost as small as possible by pursuing all courses of action. Without her skill, knowledge and hard work we would have walked away from the deal and would have to carry the burden of managing that property again. ”

“I just want to say that Shelly made me feel very comfortable during this process and she was always on top of her game, very knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions without a doubt. If it was something she didn’t know she will call me back in a few with an answer. In general Shelly is AWESOME in every way going above and beyond to help find what I wanted. Thanks Shelly!”
