About Shelly

Born in the Midwest, Shelly's family roots stem back over 50 years in Palm Beach. Having lived in one of the most iconic houses on the island, “Southways”, has given her a true perspective of the lifestyle, local knowledge, and different personalities of each section of the island, as well as the surrounding communities. She has seen how Palm Beach has grown from a winter playground to a year-round town with prized addresses.

Buying or selling a home can be a challenging adventure. Let us guide you through your journey!

Meet Shelly

Shelly offers innovative sales and negotiating skills, from a strong business background beginning with Xerox Corporation, followed by a long career in commercial and residential interior design, sales, and project management. Her projects ranged from a modest apartment to multimillion dollar residences and single executive offices to entire company divisions.

Building on and off waterfront property, along with her many years of travel and boating along the Florida waterways and up the east coast to destinations such as Newport, Nantucket, and Maine, has broadened Shelly's understanding of seaside architecture.

She applies her design knowledge and expertise, assisting buyers with every aspect of their home purchase, from visualization of interior space through a fully turnkey purchase. She is also adept at providing staging and implementation to those who need additional assistance preparing their home for sale.

Shelly feels a sense of pride and accomplishment when achieving the goals set forth by each client. Her mission is to treat your needs with the utmost importance and timeliness, making buying or selling a pleasant experience. She is eager to offer her professional services and in- depth knowledge of the market to assist in turning your vision into a reality.

Our Approach

Successfully navigating today’s real estate market takes an agent who understands the challenges faced by buyers and sellers alike.

Our approach begins with learning your goals, both short and long term. Using this as a foundation for our work, we research and analyze the available opportunities and handpick the solutions we believe to best fit your needs.

While Palm Beach is our backyard, if your real estate needs should take you outside of our area of expertise, we have a great track record of referrals throughout the state of Florida and beyond.

Referral Network

Illustrated Properties is a founding member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, an organization of independent brokers and by invitation only, providing a world-wide network of professional agents that I may refer. I've had great success in connecting clients with reliable, professional agents in other cities. I provide personal introductions, selecting agents that would be the best fit.

About The Fite Group

As specialists in luxury real estate, Fite is not simply in a place, but of it. We are clothed in the fabric of our communities — true locals rather than local representatives. We believe and are invested in these places and people, this way of life. Which is why we’re the right people to help you feel at home.

To that end, we prioritize relationships over transactions, people over properties. Developing long-term trust is more important than any short-term gains. We take a biographical approach, asking smart questions, working together to define your vision for your life here. Then we use all our resources to get you exactly what you require. 

While we offer global capabilities, we’ve found that maintaining a boutique size and ethos gives us the flexibility to be extraordinarily nimble and responsive. We’ve built a team of agents with exceptional local knowledge and a commitment to service. Everyone shares expertise and information in order to meet your goals, which ultimately helps us achieve ours. If you find yourself nodding in agreement with the way we work, we’re the people you’ll want to do business with. 

When you partner with Fite, you’re taking an important step in fulfilling your plans for you, your family and future generations. It’s our privilege to help bring those plans to life in the places we’re proud to call home.
