Shelley Bunch
Sales Partner

As a proud Texan born and raised here in Dallas, Shelley’s detailed knowledge of the DFW Metroplex helps set her apart from the competition and gain clients’ respect, trust, and loyalty.

Shelley graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Hospitality Management degree and worked in the catering and wedding industry before making a career change into Medical Sales. It wasn’t long into her Medical Sales career when she knew what her true passion was – Real Estate. It was ironically during the search for her first home as a newlywed where Shelley realized she wanted to make helping clients find their perfect home – which some people consider a hassle! – to be her full-time career. Her competent knowledge of current market trends combined with ambition and professionalism make her a vital asset to clients looking to buy, sell, or lease a home.

What Shelley loves to do while not finding her clients their dream home is to spend time with her husband Tyler, family, friends, her dog, Lilley, and especially her two precious nieces. She loves traveling all around the world and hopes to have a family of her own one day soon!
