In the highly competitive climate that is the LA real estate market, it is indeed a rare moment that you run across authenticity and acumen in one person let alone a real estate team....Enter The Shelhamer Real Estate Group. Glenn Shelhamer and his group represent something so refreshingly intelligent, honest, kind and effective that work is not only efficient and profitable, but it is also seamless and dare I say...fun??? I was lucky enough to run across a flier from his team and reached out to Glenn for help. He answered immediately (who does that?) Although first impressions run the risk of fading with poor follow through, my respect and trust has grown exponentially with Glenn's extensive knowledge of market history and current trends as well as creative solutions to get buyer and seller in agreement. His common sense,reassurance, market analysis and confidence allows everyone concerned to drop the barriers and get the deal done. His genuine and caring nature engenders much positivity and sets the bar high, so much so, that candor and collaboration between all parties is the only acceptable response. I was the seller in this particular transaction. As a confirmed serial investor having owned 21 homes in NY,LA Chicago and FL, I feel I have enough experience to know good people/true talent when I see it and I'm typically loyal to those business professionals who I consider dear friends. So it is with Glenn and his incomparable group. Business has become personal again!
I am the broker of record for the www.ShelhamerGroup.com. Glenn Shelhamer was my top producing agent in 2016, and 2017, and he is on track for 2018. He continues to surprise me on his real estate skill level and how he takes care of his clients. If you're in the market to buy or sell your Los Angeles real estate or invest in Los Angeles commercial or residential real estate - Glenn Shelhamer is a smart call! Glenn also heads up the nonprofit arm of our real estate business The Highland Park Society which gives back to local charities and the north east animal shelter.
Highly professional and ambitious team. I know some of the principals and recommend their services.
Lauren really knows her business, but more importantly she really cares about the people she works with. She takes the time to understand your wants and needs and listens and answers any questions you have. If you're looking for someone to always have your best interest at the forefront I highly recommend Lauren and the Shelhamer group.
Lauren isn't just a great realtor. She is a great person and now a friend. As a first-time single woman homebuyer, I cannot possibly overstate how lucky I was to have found someone so honest, so patient, and so friendly to guide me through the home buying process in this cutthroat Los Angeles real estate market. We saw a lot of houses together. I mean A LOT. Not once did I feel pressured by Lauren or Glenn or anyone else on their real estate team. I asked A LOT of stupid questions. Not once did I feel judged. It's been said before in other reviews, but it really does bear repeating: Lauren some how makes you feel like you are her only client. She truly, genuinely cares about making you happy and finding you the right home, and in my case, she did exactly that! I recommend Lauren Gold and Glenn Shelhamer with the highest possible confidence as your Eastside Los Angeles Realtors.
We had a great experience working with Glenn and the rest of the group! Everyone was responsive and extremely helpful every step of the way. They had knowledge and suggestions about little details and things we didn't even think to consider. We received a lot of help from their associate Lauren who took so much time out of her days to show us properties and act as a trustworthy resource along the way. We never felt cheated or taken advantage of, they had our best interest in mind and were a pleasure to work with.
Glenn Shelhamer and the staff are fabulous. When I thought I couldn't make it happen they were my go to team and made everything possible. Glenn's expertise and great attitude made the whole process easy.
I'm a first time homeowner and I closed on a condo in Highland Park about a week ago with Glenn as my buying agent. I absolutely love the place and feel incredibly lucky to have found Glenn. From the start, he was warm, personable, genuine, honest, and super communicative. His advice, guidance, and support throughout the process gave me great peace of mind and his knowledge of the market, his personality, and his business savvy got us a condo that I love, despite the steep competition for it. Glenn was and still is available throughout the home buying process, as any questions come up, which really means a lot. He's very on top of his stuff, while having a great sense of humor and an earnest concern for the people he works with. I'd definitely work with Glenn again, truly a great experience! Thanks for everything, man!
Glenn was great! As a first-time homebuyer, I had no idea what I was doing or what to expect in the process. Glenn was not only knowledgeable, patient, honest, easy to talk to, available for my questions, but also super fun and funny! I was very fortunate to get the first place we put a bid on. Glenn knew what price to ask and used is interpersonal skills to get the lowdown through the seller's agent. In one of our first meetings he told me all the emotions I would go through in the process of buying a home, and he was right! He's seen it all before and has been there himself. He's empathetic to the process and has a strong team alongside him. Just give Glenn a call and see for yourself! You'll be happy you did.
Glenn came as a recommendation from a friend in real estate and surpassed all my expectations. As a first time home buyer he has been great with helping me understand the process and nuances of the competitive LA housing market. Not only is he personable and enjoyable to work with he's very knowledgable and honest. I have yet to find the perfect spot to call home but he's been great thus far and patient with me during such a large life decision. I truly feel like he's looking out for his clients' best interest which is hugely important with home buying. He's a hard working and passionate real estate agent that I would recommend to anyone looking within East LA.
Glenn helped us buy our first home! He was helpful, always available and super knowledgeable. As first-time buyers, we were full of questions and skepticism about the real estate market and anyone in it. Glenn spent some time on the phone getting to know us and what we were looking for, and then he met us at the property that had piqued our interest. He gave us his honest opinion, comparing it to his own house and previous properties he's helped sell or buy. Glenn really knows the area and the market, but if there's something he isn't sure about or is outside his area of expertise, he really will tell you. Although we were reticent to trust anyone in the real estate business, Glenn won us over because he consistently came through for us. I would recommend Glenn to anyone interested in buying or selling in NELA!
Glenn Shelhamer is a stand up guy who happens to be a very knowledgable and effective real estate agent. A rare find! I originally bought my Eagle Rock house with the intention of living in it for a few years, but rather quickly realized it wasn't right for me. When it came time to selling the house I interviewed a number of agents, including Glenn, to figure out what best to do with it. It became clear Glenn knew the area incredibly well, had repeated success selling a range of properties, and didn't come across as the typical agent. He also has a real passion for architecture and plenty of contacts for managing home improvements that we undertook as part of the process of getting the place ready to sell. I made a very fair and profitable sale. Better still, the stress was almost non-existent. Yes, there were the expected bumps in the road during the rehab process, but Glenn was never rattled and communicated quickly and clearly so we had the time and information needed to make informed decisions at every turn. I highly recommend Glenn Shelhamer to anyone buying or selling a house, and I plan on doing business with Glenn Shelhamer again in the very near future. I didn't live in the house while it was on the market. Did I mention Glenn even watered the plants for me...yeah, that happened.
Where do I begin? I've been in Real Estate over a decade and over the years I come across all kinds of Agents. I recently had the pleasure to work with Glenn & his wonderful team on a property in West Adams. The attention to detail and communication was on another level. Closing Escrow was bittersweet because we would no longer be working together. Look forward to many more deals in the future. Congratulations to you & your First Time Homeowner Clients!!
It is with great pleasure that we write this review for Shelhamer Real Estate Group. After making attempts to sell a property in downtown Los Angeles over several years with various agents we were eventually fortunate enough to find Glenn. Glenn, found a buyer in less than a week and escrow was closed quickly, soon after he took us on several home tours and found my family a new home. He answered all our questions with patience and diligence. We could simply not afford to waste time supervising a real estate agent. Glenn is conscionable and principled. He listens and cares about his clients. We appreciated his expediency and flexibility when working with our 1031 Exchange. Our process was a difficult one but with swiftness and skill he made it look simple and most importantly alleviated the stress that can come with buying and selling homes! My family has named him Glenn "the Godsend" Shelhamer because we consider him a blessing. We are happy to have found a real estate agent, our immediate and extended family can work with for many, many years to come.
I rarely write Yelp reviews but Glenn Shelhamer is my dear friend's husband and he deserves this one. Not only is Glenn a stand out Realtor, he's a loving family man, honest, ethical, fair, and has a big personality and a witty sense of humor. He is well connected in real estate and always closing an escrow on Facebook - ha! As good as Glenn looks on paper and online he is even better in person. If you're looking to hire a real estate agent who knows what's up in this market, you should definitely have Glenn Shelhamer on your interview list!
What a great experience! Glenn is such a nice, friendly guy, super easy to work with and very knowledgeable. He is very quick to respond with any questions/issues you might have. He got our house sold in 1 1/2 weeks! His strategy is very different from other realtors and it works! We interviewed several realtors and realized Glenn was the only one who really knew Silverlake and its market inside and out. It was a no brainer to chose him and let him do his work. If you are buying or selling the Silverlake, Highland Park, Echo Park, or Los Feliz Areas he and his team are the ones to choose.
I believe that in business and life alike, the most critical choices we make relate to people. Yet being a good judge of people can be difficult. How do we get better at sizing up first impressions, at avoiding hiring mistakes, at correctly picking (and not missing) the right person to sell your house? The easy thing to do is focus on extrinsic markers -- academics, net worth, social status, awards and decorations. Social media has allowed us to add new layers of extrinsic scoring: How many friends do they have on Facebook? Who do we know in common through LinkedIn? How many Twitter followers do they have etc. How many houses have they successfully marketed and sold in the area? But such extrinsic credentials and markers only tell one part of a person's story. They are necessary, but not sufficient. What they miss are the "softer" and more nuanced intrinsic that are far more defining of a person's character. You can teach skills; character and attitude, not so much. In short, I have personally known Glenn Shelhamer over a decade and can tell you unequivocally he is a person of principle and integrity. If you're in need of a stand up, sharp real estate agent in Los Angeles, Glenn is your man.
Glenn is fantastic! A delight to work with. Super attentive to your needs and goes the extra mile. Also has great knowledge in the east LA real estate market.
So, although yelp only allows for 5 stars, we give Glenn Shelhamer 10 stars. If you are working with any other agent right now, leave that agent and seek out Glenn. My husband and I have worked with several agents over the years and we had come to believe that all were cut from the same cloth ... order takers at best. You tell them what you are looking for, they put you on the MLS list and you call them when you are ready to see something/ "place your order". Glenn is the ONLY agent we have seen that doesn't fit the mold. Recently we were looking for a multi-unit property and we found this other agent who sold himself as an expert in multi-unit properties. He met with us, gave us the dog and pony show, his super pretty brochure and the only time we heard from him was when we saw something we liked and then that agent would arrange for us to see it. But that was it. He was super unsuccessful at working with the other side to actually get close to closing a deal. Luckily we found Glenn (on yelp) and called him. Seriously, it wasn't 10 minutes later and he called us back. From that first call until the time we closed, Glenn was super attentive and responsive. He managed to forge relationships with all parties involved and was able to get us in the game on every property we were interested in purchasing. If you are interested in buying property, Glenn will make it happen. He's smart, knows the business, motivated to help you get exactly what you are looking for and extremely client focused. He listened to what we wanted and exceeded our expectations at every turn. You are wasting your time if you go with any agent other than Glenn.
Glenn hired me has his graphic designer for various projects and I'm glad he did. Glenn is professional and an easy client to work with. Best of all he knows what he wants and communicates efficiently and effectively - which is rare :) Knowing Glenn as a real estate agent is interesting. I see first hand how much he cares about what he is doing and how passionate he is about making sure his clients both buying and selling are getting what they want. Glenn's real estate clients come first. Countless times he has had to take other calls and reschedule meetings with me because his real estate clients needed assistance. It frustrated me of course, but I respect him for his focus and commitment to his real estate clients. Besides his professionalism and focus Glenn is a funny guy and always a pleasure and easy to work with. Take it from me. Working with Glenn works.
