About Me

Shirley Bertholf - RealtorShirley Bertholf - Realtor®

It trust it won’t take you long to notice that I have a heart for people and am passionate about making a difference in their lives.  I hope that is evident in the enthusiastic, conscientious way I work with my clients, whether selling an existing property or buying something new.  

Helping people has always been one of my passions.  That's one of the reasons why, after retiring from 36 years of  pastoral ministry alongside my husband of 50 years, I chose to become a real estate agent.  Being with people energizes me, so the last thing I want is to be stuck in an office somewhere, with only my computer to interact with day in and day out.  I am at my best when I can spend my days surrounded by folks for whom I can somehow make a difference. 

I find great joy in locating the perfect house for one of my buyers, showcasing the home of one of my sellers, or negotiating a successful closing for any of my clients.   When I can navigate the sometimes difficult waters of offers and counter offers, inspections, financing, and closings to that moment when I get to hand over the keys in a completed transaction, I am one "happy camper!’”

I understand it would be foolish to trust such an important decision to just anyone.  This is the time to choose a Realtor® who really cares about what’s important to you, not just about making a sale, a Realtor® who is looking out for your best interests, not his/her own, a Realtor® who will go the extra mile to make sure you are pleased with the outcome.

From the very first smile, I hope you will sense my love for people and my desire to serve.  Integrity, trust, and excellence are the values I strive to build into my life and my business.

I believe you will find me very conscientious, honest, hard working, enthusiastic, and willing to go the extra mile, and I hope you'll give me the opportunity to work with you in your real estate needs.
