"Buyer Testimonial"

Thank you kindly for helping us the 3rd time getting us a perfect house for us. You are an amazing realtor and as well an amazing person. THANK YOU??

"Seller Testimonial"

Rachel is nothing less than amazing. We sold our home during an emotionally difficult situation and she was immediately there to help and reassure us every step of the way. What seemed to start as a pretty cut and dry situation turned very difficult, she was patient with my weekly (probably more) melt downs, and she fought for our best interest. When dealing with people who were anything but professional she always stayed classy. I will definitely be calling Rachel the next time I need a realtor. Her years of experience and passion for people makes her the best around.

"Buyer Testimonial"

I have known Rachel for over 13 years, this is not the first time I have worked with her. Rachel is always very professional, attentive to detail and easy to work with... she never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. She works hard for her clients and deserves the highest praise.. I would highly recommendanyone seeking a truly professional realtor to connect with Rachel.
Thank you Rachel for your VERY hard work and dedication.. we truly appreciate it.

"Seller and Buyer Testimonial"

I had thought about selling my home in Milwaukie for some time but never really got off the couch and did anything about it.
One day after work I took a drive to the area that I wanted to live and found a few homes for sale. I had searched for a house with land, as I was looking for a little piece of earth to raise my family. We lived in suburbia and I commuted all my life; I was ready for a change. The house I was looking at was located in Boring Oregon on a great piece of land and was being sold by Sheller Real Estate, Oregon First. On my way home after work I called the number on the sign and that is when I was first introduced to Rachel Sheller! We talked for a good half hour and the great energy and vibe I got from that one conversation; I knew that I wanted this person to represent my family and myself in this HUGE life undertaking.
My wife, kids and I met Rachel for the first time at my home in Milwaukie. We sat down and went through the usual proceedings of a home sale and Rachel was very informative, upfront, and honest. After deciding on a sale date, we all rolled up our sleeves and went to work. If you have never sold a home you are in for a rollercoaster ride. My wife and I went through emotions of stress, happiness, sadness, and fear but through it all Rachel made sure that we were always comfortable. We sold our home within the timeline promised and we were very satisfied with Rachel’s performance and professionalism that we continued our journey with her to buy our next family home.
The move was strange for us all. We had moved back into my parents basement and the kids were on summer vacation. Each day I had my Zillow and Trulia feeds going and at moment’s notice Rachel was always willing to go show us a home whether it was morning or night. At times living with my parents again would strike the fear in me that I needed to find a home sooner rather than later, but Rachel would always reel me back and assure me that the right home would come along. Rachel just wasn’t our realtor she became much more. Beyond the business side to her she was very down to earth and wouldn’t pass judgment no matter what you had to say. Selling and buying a home is probably a top 5 in your life that can make and break a person, because if it’s your actual home you leave a lot of emotions on the table. If I had to do it all over again, Rachel Sheller would be by my side.
Thank you Rachel

Working with Rachel was a complete Godsend. I met her at an open house she was holding and I immediately felt a connection with her. We talked a lot and she listened to all the crazy needs my family had. She walked a long road with us and eventually helped us find our dream home. Rachel is so professional and helped us navigate some pretty rough spots. When I was weary from the process, Rachel reassured me that everything was going to work out just fine. Rachel is one of the hardest working people I know. She is so passionate about her work and it shines through in every aspect of what she does. Her professionalism and passion make her stand out in the sea of realtors.

"Seller Testimonial"

I chose Rachel because of her high ratings and I got exactly what I wanted! She was educated and thorough. She was filled with guidance and was always able to show me the best paths to take while quickly selling my home. I would gladly choose her again if ever needed!
Thank you so much!

"Pleasant Valley Sale"

I would like to thank Rachel Sheller for listing and selling our house in Pleasant Valley. They always say give your business to a busy person who gets things done in record time. The inspection report listed some items that needed attention before the sale went through. We needed help from several contractors and I live in Florida. No problem within days Rachel had rounded up the contractors and the work was done on time and the sale safely closed. I called Rachel the diplomat because she knew how to speak to the contractor and the purchaser's agent in a way that kept everyone happy.

Thank you, Brian & Helen Stewart

"Seller and Buyer Testimonial"

Rachel was wonderful! We have 1 year old twins, one with medical issues, and are so busy all day, every day The idea of selling, moving, and buying was very intimidating for us. Rachel was incredibly patient with us and so understanding of our needs. She took away much of the stress by explaining everything, answering my numerous questions, and being so supportive when I was getting anxious. She was very proactive for us, gave honest advice, and was such a great advocate for us. She was always in contact, kept us up to date on everything, made us feel like a priority. I would absolutely recommend Rachel to anyone looking to buy/sell a home. We loved working with her!
Thank you:)

OK where should I begin

Rachel may have had thousands of clients in her career, but I think we could be put in the top 20 for most challenging clients and keeping her on her toes.
She was very patient and understanding when we had pulled offers on three separate homes. We were aware this takes time to prepare offers
and she is putting her reputation of many years on the line with our instant change of decisions.

In the end she really understood we needed to find the right home that felt comfortable for me and more important my wife...which is another story.

Rachel took charge on the small details that need to be covered and demonstrated she always has her clients best interest. One example is on our closing with a seller there were a number of repairs that were not completed. Rachel took it upon herself and called the contractors to confirm the repairs would be made. she even went a step further and found one of her own contractors to replace a window that the seller told their realtor that it was in the process of being replace. Which was not the case, in my opinion the sellers Realtor should share some of her commission for what Rachel did to help with the repairs.

I have never recommended a realtor to someone, that is the truth but I keep Rachel's card in my wallet to give to anyone looking for a relator that has a passion to please her clients.

Best Regards

We don't have enough nice things to say about Rachel!! She truly went above and beyond and helped us find the perfect home in no time. She walked us through every step and was always available to answer questions we had. Buying a house isn't always an easy process but Rachel made it feel like a breeze. Without Rachel we would not of been able to buy our first home. Rachel is the absolute best in the business!!

“Rachel really showed up for us! It was a challenging and nerve racking adventure, but she went above and beyond. The buyer’s agent was new, and needed handholding. The buyers kept changing loans, and pushing all the way to the end. Rachel remained steadfast and got the deal done and closed on time! Whew! She really knows her business and was there for us at every turn. No one wants a messy deal, but if you end up in one it’s great to have Rachel on your team. She’s patient, considerate, effective and professional all the way!”
Shell Tain

I can never thank Rachel Sheller enough for steering us through the most difficult sale imaginable. It seemed almost every day some new demand was added or some old demand was changed. But Rachel stayed calm, informed and professional throughout the entire process, even taking on some of the buyers' agent's duties because, frankly, he was in over his head. With every new roadblock Rachel was on top of the situation, with knowledgeable advice and firm negotiating. In the end, we made it, even closing on time. Rachel, you are something special. To anyone out there looking for a first class agent, look no further. Rachel Sheller will do the job for you. Michael Helwig, Gresham, Oregon

“Rachel was referred to us in late fall of 2016. My husband and I purchased and sold multiple homes in the past 12 years, and when we met Rachel it was immediately apparent that she knows her business well. Rachel was a true professional throughout the process of selling our home. We were previously frustrated with the lack of results from another realtor, and when we hired Rachel she got the job done. I would definitely recommend Rachel to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is extremely communicative and motivated. She makes things happen!”

Tracey Nicholas


To say selling my house was an adventure would be an understatement. I do believe that anything that could go wrong, did. My closing dates for selling and buying looked like it would be separated by three weeks of homelessness. I had to make repairs to my home, and then have the repairmen come back a couple times to pass re-inspection. Countless things piled up and fear of the unknown problems that could happen on any given day were only eased by one thing. I knew that Rachel was there to represent me, and she was a single phone call or text away. I knew that no matter how hard the sale of my home was, I had one of the most professional realtors in the business on my side. Her servant's heart was easy to see from the moment we met with her to discuss options. At no point in the three month process of buying our new home, did Rachel not make herself unavailable. She was there to encourage, support and answer any question that we had along the way. We now have our dream home, and we could not be happier. Thank you Rachel for making that dream possible.

I knew I’d be selling my beautiful, but sad home soon after my divorce was finalized. I also knew that Rachael would be the the one I could trust. Our sons played baseball together several years back and during that time I witnessed her genuine caring heart on many occasions. My decision was justified when she came by to do a walk thru, suggesting things to do to prepare the house for listing, her words “you can do this, I got you”. Not only did she pay attention to detail regarding my home, but on the day she came to take photos she was wearing a elephant pendant, I love elephants and she said she wore it for me...it’s the little things.

My house was being sold as-is and the offer we accepted was FHA in the beginning so the process took more time. This was ok, I was not in a hurry and definitely needed the time. She addressed any question or concern I had with her expertise and if I wasn’t sure about a decision I needed to make, I knew she had my back and
could count on her advice. Rachael understood my situation and treated me with kindness and respect. From start to finish she keept me informed and updated throughout the entire process, making a task I dreaded smooth and effortless on my part.

I highly recommend Rachael to anyone needing real estate services. Rachael has more than exceptional skills at selling a home, she has a genuine heart and a love for people. She will work magic...she did for me! Thank you Rachael!

I can't say enought good things about Rach, she helped me navigate the long and stressful process of selling our beloved home taking time late into her evenings and weekends ,what ever it took to keep me informed and answering all my questions going above and behond , not just as realtor but on a personal level as well . I felt like she really cares and she very dedicated . I highly recommend her and we were blessed to have her referred to us . Thanks again Rach !
Deb

Thank goodness we were referred to Rachel by a friend! From start to finish in our selling and buying process, Rachel has been efficient, informative, extremely responsive to our questions and needs, and just a joy to work with. Our house sold almost immediately, thanks to her marketing skills. I am so grateful that we had Rachel to guide us through this process since we haven’t purchased a home in 39 years! I would absolutely recommend Rachel to ANYONE who’s interested in buying or selling.
Happy new home owners,
Lynne and Eldon

We were thrilled to have Rachel Sheller as our Realtor when selling our home. She responded very quickly to every email, text and phone call, gave us great advice, and got us a solid offer in just 4 days. While selling our home she was out showing us multiple homes in the Portland-Metro area. I believe she showed us around 20. Once we found our home. She acted fast and thought to ask for things we wouldn't of thought of. She works VERY hard for her clients and best of all, gets results!

Rachel worked with us through the purchase of a new home and sale of our existing home. She quickly learned what we wanted and had a list of properties that night. She directed us in what we needed to do to sell our existing home and it sold very quickly for over the asking price. Selling a home is a daunting ordeal and Rachel made it very seamless. For every small detail that came up Rachel had an answer or got one at the earliest. I will definitely recommend her to all my friends and family.”

I have an awesome real estate agent Rachel Sheller who held my hand through this entire process. She has been mega awesome.

Rachel is UH-mazing!! She's so personable and dedicated to her clients. She doesn't waste time and WILL get you the home of your adorable dreams! We used another retailer for 7 months before finding Rachel, losing out on 7 different offers. We put in one offer with Rachel and she made sure we got it! She also got my best friend a house on the first try too!

"As first time buyers, our experience with Rachel was amazing. She really took care of us from beginning to end, and her attentiveness and thoroughness helped us feel secure throughout the process. She’s a rockstar advocate to have on your side of the table. Her tenaciousness secured our house for us over five competing offers and her career’s worth of connections and willingness to make all the arrangements helped the inspection process move quickly and smoothly. We are so glad that we were referred to Rachel, and will be forever thankful for everything she did to help us get into our first home. --Megan & Scott Cutler"

My husband and I were referred to Rachel Sheller by a friend.
Despite several warm phone calls and emails back and forth with Rachel, I was still very anxious about meeting another realtor. Our previous experience with a different realtor was unpleasant, to say the least.
From the moment I met Rachel in person, I knew she was the right person to help us purchase our first home. She greeted us with a huge smile and gave us both a big hug. Every time we've met, she's been as warm and genuine as she was that first day.
Rachel completely knows the ins and outs of the VERY complex world of real estate. She knows exactly what needs to be done, how it needs to be done, and has no problem taking care of business.
We ran into a couple of snafus during the buying process and Rachel was quick to offer suggestions, find solutions, and get things straightened out. She is direct and firm without being overbearing and pushy.
We absolutely recommend Rachel for anyone looking to buy a home and we are planning to work with her again for future purchases.

Just wanted to write a note to say thank you for everything – we know we would not have had the offer accepted on our dream home if we had ben represented by another agent! You told us to trust you and you absolutely stuck to your word! I still don’t know how you convinced the buyer to take a big risk on us versus the multiple cash offers she had received. You were able to build a relationship with the seller and get her comfortable with the risk level of our offer and overcome some major (and very valid) obstacles from her perspective. This very competitive market requires creative thinking and a personal connection and you brought both of those things to the table in order to secure our deal. It’s clear now why you come highly recommended and are so productive!

Thank you again!!!

The Read Family

Gets results! That would be the best way to describe our experience with Rachel. Rachel was not even our agent, she was the agent to the buyers of our home. From the very start she worked hard for her clients & helped us along the way as well - we had many offers on our home the first week it was listed - Rachel went the extra mile for her clients which in turn resulted in us excepting their offer over many others - we have bought and sold many homes in our life and by far Rachel has the most skill & know how to get results that makes everyone happy - she didn't just work hard for all parties involved she worked "smart" that's the only way I can put it - I would recommend her at the very top of my list for any real estate needs.
Sincerely
Amy Hadsell

3 1/2 years ago we needed to find a house for our daughter while she attended college in Gresham. Not only did Rachel find us the perfect property but she took a personal interest in our daughters well being and making the place a real home.

When it recently came time to sell the house we did not hesitate to list with Rachel.Not only did we get more for our property than we anticipated but the whole process was completed smoothly even though it was a long distant transaction.

Thank you again Rachel for your hard work and dedication.

"I am honored to give Rachel Sheller this letter of recommendation. Rachel has worked with myself and my family on various real estate transactions over the past 15 years. She most recently worked with my daughter and her husband to sell their home and with purchasing another home and assisted me in the purchase of a new home.

Rachel demonstrates integrity and extensive knowledge when working with clients. Her knowledge of the current market and her work ethic shortens the duration a property remains on the market saving both time and money. She is sensitive to the needs of her clients and works hard to achieve their goals. She continues to work even after the papers are signed to ensure your experience from beginning to end is a successful and pleasant experience. I will continue to choose to work with Rachel for my real estate needs and have referred her often to family and friends.

I am confident Rachel can successfully assist you, too!"

Working with Rachel was a pleasure. She worked from our wishlist and found us the perfect home for our family. And was right beside us, through the whole home buying process, answering all questions and providing useful guidance.

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

I had the opportunity to work with Rachel after a difficult and frustrating experience with another realtor. It was a relief and even a joy to partner with someone who was responsive, communicated clearly, did what she said she would when she said she would do it and took a proactive approach to everything rather than having to be prodded along. She made it easy for me and made sure I understood each step along the way. I will be recommending her to everyone whether or not they currently need a realtor!

Rachel has developed through her experience, very aggressive sales and marketing techniques which she effectively combined with a trustworthy and personal relationship with her clients. We were satisfied with the financial compromises both for us and the buyers that were achieved and happy with the outcome.

Last summer I reached out to Rachel Sheller to help me sell my elderly Mom's condominium. I truly appreciated the care and understanding she gave to my situation. She listened to our goals and we were able to sell the condo within a couple of months. She helped make the process very quick and that was my goal.

Rachel Sheller; a family tradition!
She found a house for my son's family a few years ago as well as for myself & daughter & grandson in 2015. I can't say enough about how sincere she is. A genuine person who truly cares about her clients; securing the perfect house for them, while balancing that with selling my former house; she was helpful, effective, thoughtful & persistent with some very tough decisions & negotiations.
When asked how I found this gem of a house; I tell people;
The TRUTH; Rachael found it for me!
I can never express enough gratitude for all she does & continues to do for me & my family. She is truly a Gem!


Rachel has been a pleasure to work with on both buying my first home as well as selling it 5 years later. Not only did she help me with everything that needed to be done step by step she also helped me stage my home and had it sold within 2 days of listing for more than asking. I couldn't have asked for a better Agent to work with. She truly was a blessing to me in both ends of the buying/selling spectrum and if I still lived in Oregon she would've been my agent on my new home as well. I would recommend her to anyone!!

Thank you for everything Rachel!
Angela McCoy

Rachel is the best realtor. She did a great job, she went above and beyond for us. We appreciate everything she did for us. We will always refer her to anyone we know. Thank you again for everything you did for us.


Rachel did an amazing job helping us buy our home. We were really set on one property and we encountered a number of challenges before we could close. Rachel facilitated in overcoming these challenges and we are very grateful and would refer Rachel to any of our friends or family.

Thanks.

--Mike

Dear Rachel or should we say, miracle worker, or real estate magician. I would like to thank you again for giving us peace of mind thru your hard work when helping us sell our several units when we were dealing with our short-sales condos. While not having you representing us in our transactions we had waisted so much time with lawyers and bank officers. But. with you diligence and hard work and excellent follow thru We did it. You are so happy we met you!

Rachel I hope you know we are restarting our dreams again,

take great care
Valerium and Cesar.

I can not say enough good things about her and the service she provided. She helped my family purchase our first home.

She makes you feel like you are the most important person in her busy schedule. She always made time to answer all our numerous questions. If she didn't have an answer (which was rare) she was honest, told us, and would get us an answer asap.

She kept us well informed of our rights, the laws, and always explained to us what we were signing. She made us feel confident and secure during a very scary time for us. Buying a home is a huge commitment. She showed us a few houses before we found the one we wanted to make an offer on. She was up-front with all the homes we looked at and pointed out problems or issues. She made sure we were well educated. She was focused on us and our needs. NOT making a sale and collecting a paycheck on a house that wasn't right for us.

When we did find our dream home we encountered a few issues, at not fault of Rachel's, and she offered great advice that was 100% true and correct.

She put so much time and effort into us and our dream of owning this particular home. She negotiated repairs that we NEVER thought would happen. I feel anyone else would have gave up and told us to move on and start looking for a different home. However, she realized how much we loved this house and she fought for us!

She always made a point to call, text, or email with any new news or information within minutes of getting the information herself. We always felt informed and "in the loop".

When we didn't hear back from the seller in a timely fashion she pushed and pushed. She got the job done and didn't allow our deal to fall through the cracks or be ignored.

WE WOULD NOT HAVE THIS HOME IF IT WASN'T FOR RACHEL, HER DEDICATION, HER KNOWLEDGE, HER EXPERIENCE, AND THE PRIDE SHE HAS FOR HER PROFESSION.

I am and will continue to refer ALL my family, friends, and anyone else that will listen, to Rachel. We know they will be in great hands.

Lastly I would like to say, my husband is a disabled combat veteran. If you happen to be serving or a veteran of the US military... Well, Rachel has a special place in her heart for you and your family. :-)

Good luck and happy home hunting!

Most Sincerely,

The Orfield's

Rachel Sheller is a very good real estate agent. She is caring, honest, hardworking, precise, and she has integrity. She handled our case, which turned out to be very complicated, with the upmost in confidence and professionalism. She always cared, not just about our house and getting it sold, but also about us as a family and people. We really enjoyed working with her, and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You will not be sorry if you hire her. She is the only good decision we have made in years!! Our house has not sold yet, but that was not due to any fault on her part. When she initially listed our house, we had two offers on the very first day, and accepted one of the offers. The legal errors that occurred kept our house from selling, and after four months she still hung in there with us. Rachel is in the process of doing a short sale for us, and we have the upmost in confidence that she will be able to get the job done. Rachel did whatever was needed at the time we needed it, and kept the buyers apprised of what was happening. She is a gem, and we are really happy with her!

Rachel is very motivated and her knowledge & expertise has helped us locate our new house and with selling our current house. She communicates very well and advertised our home in many ways I was not aware of. I would recommend her to anyone who is in need of selling or buying a home.

“Almost 3 years ago when I decided to encourage my 19 year old daughter to buy a condo I knew we were headed for some obstacles. Rachel was patient with us and all of our issues, Thorough with research to find us the perfect property, excellent with every detail we never would have thought about. She made us feel safe and secure in our decisions and went above and beyond my expectations. I would, and do, recommend her to all my friends and family.”
