About me as a Real Estate Agent

Why choose me to be your Realtor®?
There are many agents and brokers who will happily drone on about how they are the best– how well they know Moscow, the real estate market, good negotiation tactics, knowledge of various skilled professionals and contractors, and more, but in my opinion, that is something ALL real estate agents should offer their customers and clients.

Shannon May Realtor Moscow Idaho

Along with the above listed skills, there are 3 ways I stand out:

As a former educator, I believe in life-learning approach to my work so I chose a office that would provide more than others and have pursued other designations as well, such as:

Certified Relocation Specialist
Realogy Military Rewards Program agent
Certified Residential Listing Specialist

The reason, I continue to seek further training is, it improves my skill set which benefits my clients. Further proof of this is that I was awarded the International Sterling Award in 2018.

From a lifetime of work involving technology of various sorts, I have a working knowledge of technology (I personally built this website- case in point) that I put to use in expanding my marketing plan on the internet beyond just listing on the MLS and my broker’s website. Studies show that 97% of buyers use the internet to find a home to buy, so that is where I spend the most of my marketing network and campaign dollars for my clients’ homes.

The third reason is significant to my business model which requires telling you about my first home buying experience as it has molded my customer service aspect of my business. My husband and I chose a Buyers Agent because she was the top agent in her large office. She definitely deserved a gold star next to most of the above points I gave in the first paragraph, but she lacked in one way that stayed with us. Once she had us under contract to buy a home, she disappeared. We’d call her about a concern, and weeks passed without a response. We still needed her help, but she was no where to be found. Knowing how much is involved beyond getting the purchase agreement signed, I am even more disappointed in her now.

Key here is I will be there for my clients, even after deal is closed. You will find the process to be smoother with me, as I will aim to field as many curve balls in advance as possible. You can call me, text me, email me and I will reply, most often, the same day. My goal is NOT to generate as much business as possible for myself so that my clients find it challenging to reach me or they end up communicating with some assistant.

My biggest motivation is whenever I see clients around town, they are happy to see me and want to catch up because seeing me brings back good memories of their real estate experience, that I made the journey the smoothest possible, from beginning to end. That is why I am an agent.

Tira E – 2022

Shannon was extremely helpful selling our house. She worked well beyond what one could expect. She made the whole process very easy for us. It was a great pleasure working with her!

Stephanie W – 2021

I have bought and sold several properties and have worked with many realtors. By
far Shannon is the BEST! She is very knowledgeable and personable … she is
responsive and handles the situations that are before her with finesse and
intelligence. I highly recommend Shannon for all of your real estate needs! Thank
you Shannon for your help!

Bret C – 2021

My wife and I were first time home buyers and received a referral from a family friend which led us to work with Shannon May. It was great to work with her to purchase our first home. The home we bought was new construction, so there were many moving parts of the deal, over a number of months. Shannon was communicative and attentive the entire time and helped solve many small problems that came up during the process. We highly recommend Shannon!

Doug M – 2021

We have both bought and sold properties with Shannon, and without a doubt can tell
you she is one of the good ones. She was our rock while navigating sales and
purchases of unconventional properties, creative loan opportunities, and less than
responsive loan officers and real estate agents. She is knowledgeable, down to
earth, friendly, and has incredible intuition.

Caron W – 2021

Shannon was so helpful and professional.
We were 1800 miles apart and she treated me like I was next door.
She always made me feel like I was top priority.
Thank you Shannon! For helping me find my forever home.

James M – 2020
Our family loved working Shannon, and would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area. She kept us informed of changes in the market, worked well within our means and after only a few quick showings we found a great home for our family.
Shannon is not only a terrific Agent, she is also a great human being a real treasure to work with. Thanks Shannon!

Angie H – 2020
Shannon is the best agent we’ve ever worked with!! You can tell she really enjoys what she is doing by the smile that is always on her face, her willingness to always be available, and her timeliness with answering all of your questions throughout the process which can get very complicated. She is well-connected to people in the industry and can make things happen! Her knowledge is evident and her service surpasses expectations. We would recommend her to anyone!

Esmeralda Z – 2020
Shannon is awesome! Very knowledgeable in her work and area. Helps guide you through the whole process with ease because she always makes the time to be available. Even though she finished helping me with my house I have the confidence to call her for any recommendations on any needs I may have for the house. Always prompt.

Diana M – 2019
Shannon is amazing! She works hard to help you find and purchase a home that is the best fit for your family! Shannon is very knowledgeable; she went above and beyond to make our home buying process as smooth as possible! We highly recommend Shannon May and would love to work with her again in the future!!!

Lisa W – 2019
Shannon was wonderful!! Her knowledge and expertise as relating to the real estate market helped my home sell in one week! The selling process went smoothly, with Shannon inserting her vast knowledge and people skills into the equation whenever there was a slight hiccup. Shannon is pleasant, positive, and extremely efficient and I would highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs!

Nate F – 2018
Shannon was amazing!! She went out of her way to make sure we understood what was going on in the area and the market and stayed patient when I was difficult. I have bought/sold 8 houses and would choose her every time from here on. Shannon went out of her way to get us pictures and videos when we couldn’t be in town. Best agent I have worked with.

Laurie B – 2018
Shannon did such a great job of getting my family into our forever home! She knows the area very well and has great resources for everyone and everything home-buying related (inspection experts, local utilities, locating manuals for included appliances, etc). We wouldn’t hesitate to use her again!

Tom J – 2018
Shannon is an excellent agent. She was very professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and friendly throughout our home buying experience. I was impressed with her negotiation skills and ability to keep us newbie home-buyers informed of all the details. We will certainly utilize and recommend her services in the future.

Amy B – 2018
I am so glad we chose Shannon as our realtor! We needed to sell our house quickly for a long-distance move. But of course we needed to get the best price we could. Shannon helped us do just that for a stress-free, fast sell. I could not have asked for a better experience as a first time seller. She was on top of communications and deadlines. She has a great eye for staging photos (and the photographer she hired was also great.) After our house sold she worked to find us an experienced, trustworthy realtor in our new town. On top of all that, she is friendly and professional and a delight to work with.

Lila N – 2018
I enjoyed working with Shannon. She is bright and bubbly and very well versed in the area. She is very knowledgeable and kind. I would strongly recommend her to anyone that is in the market for a new home or wish to sell. She will work hard for you to achieve your goals.

Tiffany R – 2018
We worked with Shannon for almost a year looking for properties in Moscow, ID. Shannon was very attentive to our home search and seemed to intuitively understand what we were looking for, even when we were less sure. Although ultimately we decided to purchase elsewhere, we would highly recommend Shannon as a Real Estate Professional in the area.

Amy M- 2017
First and foremost I would encourage anyone to read her “why choose me” section on her website as she is completely accurate in describing how she will be there for you as a client! Shannon was recommended to us by a family member and we are grateful for that recommendation for many reasons. My husband and I have worked with many realtors in the past and she is the first to not only meet but far exceed our expectations. Her vast knowledge of both the local markets and real estate in general are astounding and she has a passion for finding the right property to fit your needs. She is patient, thoughtful, available, and consistently followed up with any question promptly. Not only has she gained my husband and I as loyal clients but we will also strongly encourage any family or friend to utilize her services in the future.

Douglas H- 2017
Shannon May was very helpful in a search for a new home. she would work evenings and weekends to accommodate us for our time off. Shannon showed us several homes in Moscow area. after looking at a wide variety of homes we decided what kind of a home we wanted. When our home came into the market, she helped us negotiate the price.

Ryan W- 2017
I highly recommend working with Shannon May the next time you are in the market for a new home. From our first meeting, it was clear Shannon’s first priority was to find us the right home; a house that fit our lives, our aesthetic, and our budget. I was impressed with her concern for getting to know us and the lifestyle we were looking to have as new residents of Moscow. Shannon studies and knows this unique housing market and helped us to understand it so we could feel confident with the value of our purchase. With Shannon’s help we found a home that exceeds all of our expectations. Thank you, Shannon!
