“I recently went through the experience of downsizing my residence and locating a new smaller home in Long Beach. This was a major event for me both from the complexity of relocation as well as the importance of the financial impact. I researched several agents in Long Beach giving serious consideration to experience, professionalism and costs associated with the job I wanted accomplished. I am very happy I placed rigid requirements on this transaction and did not weaken with offers of special deals and promises. Sheila Pope and her very competent group marketed my home efficiently and to the appropriate marketplace and without any inconvenience to me. She negotiated an extremely acceptable sales price and terms which allowed everyone to be very satisfied with the outcome. A very special thank you to Sheila Pope and her S team.”
“We first met Sheila Pope almost 30 yrs ago when we were trying to buy our first house, not knowing some very important info about the process. The S Team helped us thru a difficult sale – the seller pulled the title back at one point and the selling agency was found to be deficient by the L B Board of Realtors – I don’t think we’d have gotten that first house if not for them. So of course we got our next house with them as well.”
“Sheila and her team have always been upfront, practical, pragmatic and informative about the buying and selling process. I value their insight and consider them experts in the commercial property/rental field, which is where I have had experience with them. We are lucky to have them in the the neighborhood.”
In short, you can’t find a better real estate agent than Sheila. We have bought & sold four homes with her over the past 15 years and every transaction has been a pleasure. Sheila knows the market like the back of her hand, has a keen understanding of people, and listens carefully, so she is able to make sure you get the right home for you (which is always her ultimate goal). She returns calls in a flash and is always on top of the process to make sure deadlines are met without last-minute stress. She is always calm and focused on making the deal happen.
She also only works with the best people and makes great referrals to lenders, contractors, etc. When we were having trouble getting our lender to respond, Sheila referred us to someone who got back to us right away and worked tirelessly to get us the best loan. We just moved into our dream house, which wouldn’t have happened without Sheila. The painter she referred us to is one of the best craftsmen we’ve ever worked with – and our house is spotless when he is done.
Aside from her professional prowess, working with Sheila is just plain fun. She is kind and funny and great to spend time with during what can sometimes be a stressful process.
We have been approached by countless agents seeking our business and I’m always happy to say, “Thank you, but we’ve got a fabulous real estate agent in Sheila Pope. Trust me, you’ll be happy, too.
Sheila Pope and her “S-Team”, Michelle Sheppard, are very helpful and patient with the complicated process of buying a house and selling ours. Her sensible and reliable understanding assisted us in making the best decisions for us and our needs and wants! She listens with her heart as well as with her knowledgeable experience. She and her Team bring “hand holding” to a very caring and refined level in such a difficult profession. Being a true advocate for her client is a gift that she has truly fine tuned. Whether buyer or selling, Sheila Pope is working for the higher good of all parties concerned. Her success is based on her guidance, caring and understanding that a house is not just a house…..it’s a “Home!
Sheila is a true pro. I would highly recommend her for your real estate needs. Back in 1999, Sheila helped me find and purchase my 1942 duplex. My mom lived in the back unit and I found great tenants who lived in the front unit. Now my mom is at a point where she can no longer live on her own so I decided to sell the duplex. I called Sheila because I trust her and I needed someone who could manage all the details without me being there (I live in San Diego) as well as someone who could make the process easy for my mom. Sheila and her team did an excellent job ensuring my duplex was positioned to sell quickly and for top dollar. It sold in less than a week, the process was seamless and my mom was looked after the whole time.
Sheila and her team are true professionals. As a lender, I have worked with hundreds of real estate agents through out my career and have found that The “S” team has the integrity, organization and knowledge that every purchaser or seller of real estate needs to be properly represented. Sheila keeps on top of new trends and technology and is constantly looking for ways to improve the service that she provides to her clients.
2003 Sheila sold a time share I no longer wanted. She helped me look for property many many times. She advised me on issues unrelated to her own listing. She helped me purchase my present residence 2016 and sold my former residence in the same year. She is very loyal and a person who speaks truth. She is also pragmatic and helpful with difficult situations and provides another way to view things which is very helpful.
The “S” Team was as professional as you can get. They were fast, thorough and made what is usually a confusing and difficult task – a painless process. They arranged for everything and followed up with whoever we were working with. Will definitely use them again.
Sheila Pope helped me navigate the many areas of Long Beach and ultimately helped me find a lovely home in a great neighborhood!! She has always been available when I need her, and she professional and always pleasant!
It doesn’t matter how many times you’re a buyer or seller. It is still stressful and challenging. The S Team was helpful getting through the legal paperwork and physical inspections. We learned a lot about the process and how in the end the hard work on everyone’s part resulted in a house we would call ‘home’.
Sheila Pope and the entire S-Team, especially Michelle Sheppard, did an outstanding job in the process of selling my home! I have purchased and sold homes previously with much more difficulty! The entire team made the process much more enjoyable this time around. I cannot say enough about Sheila and her team! I certainly will not have a problem referring them to other friends for future purchased! Great job you have my sincerest thanks!
