Shelley Gentile
Coldwell Banker Realty

While looking for a new home 3 years ago, Shelley assisted us greatly. We had called several realtors (about 5), and while they would show us the specific house we called them regarding, they never followed up with other options. It was a cash purchase, and I found it interesting no realtor in the Venice area would help. I spoke with Shelley; we decided to move to Parrish to be closer to family, and she found us a home within one week! Two years ago, we decided to move again in Parrish and she knew what we wanted, found a house and we put a contract on it immediately. Because she took the time to listen to what we were looking to purchase, we did not spend weeks running around. Just waited for her call. She's excellent. Joanne S

She is not only knowledgeable about her business but she is very professional and very personable. I would definitely forward her name to anyone looking for a professional real estate agency/agent. Carolyn Y

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Bennington, VT.I would highly recommend Shelley to guide you through the finding and buying the perfect house. She helped my family find just the Florida home we were looking for. I appreciated her experience and easy to talk to personality. I know if I called her today for home advice she would happily provide the direction I was seeking.

Working with Shelley was truly an enjoyable experience. Her vast knowledge and determination were exceptional. She did a wonderful job showing us potential houses to buy and insured our interests were her top priority.. Bob G

Shelley was fantastic. She listens to what your needs/wants are and work???s with you. I was an out of town buyer and very concerned about not knowing the area. Shelley put me at ease and assisted through the entire process providing me the documentation I needed to make my decision. I highly recommend Shelley and will utilize her expertise again. Bernie M.

Very Professional, organized and responsive. We had a bad experience with this listing from another company but I would recommend her excellent service to any one looking at real estate in this market. WJG

Hands down the best agent out there. Shelley is HIGHLY available by phone, e-mail, and for showings. I never experience such a high level of service. She also works around your schedule and not the other way around. She went above and beyond in so many ways I can't begin to expound in this review. Handled many aspects of the home buying experience, personally dealing with a completely incompetent morgage service. This agent gets my highest marks, and highest recommendation. Dustin G. 6/12/11

Shelley is beyond great to work with. Once I told her what I was looking for, she had listings ready to look at within less than a day. She took the time to walk through every part of the house, and pointed out things I overlooked or missed. If I ever sell my house and find a new one, I would not work with anyone else but Shelley.

Shelley is extremely knowledgeable, personable and patient. She is upfront and honest and helped us find a house in four days. We are more than happy with Shelley as an agent and will use her again for future real estate needs. Amy G. 10/13/11

Bought a home in 2015 in Lakewood Ranch, FL.

I started with Shelley with a list of what I thought I wanted and as I shifted she flowed right with me. She is calming , a sense of humor in this whole process with a dedication that is amazing,! Integrity and professionalism that is way above the crowd! I totally recommend Shelley with out any reservation ! We looked the whole area! I felt totally informed by the time I made my offer . And she stayed with with through the wacky closing with my mortgage ! Major Extra points for that !


May 2015 - Shelly was knowledgeable, honest and professional. She was attentive to every detail in our purchase process. She was even present for our walk-thru's as well as making sure our closing went smoothly, which of course it did. We would use Shelley again and would proudly recommend her to everyone interested in a "Great Realtor". Jack Conte

May 2015 - Being from the Chicago area where everything is a monumental exercise - and not knowing anything about the Florida Real Estate process - up to and thru closing - Shelley was instrumental in making the whole process pleasant and seamless. We valued her expertise, knowledge and suggestions. Schiltz

April 2015 - Shelly is on top of her game! She always answers your calls quickly and takes care of everything immediately. Very honest and dependable! We had a great expierence with her Barrilleaux

2014 -  Shelley was great to work with and really knows the area. Showed us many places before we found the right one and gave very good advice for making the right offer. She also gave us references to a number of great home service providers. We were new to this area and working with her made the transition much easier. I whole heartedly recommend her. Gillespie

April 2015 - Very friendly person to work & deal with. Always on time and will find time to work with and for you. I will request her when we need reality help. J. R. Kern

1/1/2014 Shelley is great to work with. She is a very hard worker and responds back quickly when you need her. She is very patient because we looked at a lot of houses before deciding on the one we purchased! Its an important decision and she recognizes that and would not want to put you into a home unless you were certain. I would highly recommend Shelley to anyone who asks! If she doesn't know something she will find out! Pianka

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Bradenton, FL.
Shelley was very knowledgeable of the area, the various builders and home values. Her husband is a custom home builder, so that gave her and us an advantage to understand what needed repairing, costs of repairs, and overall value of home. We were always on the same page on price and costs, so it was easy to negotiate. We found a great house and are fortunate to have had her services

Shelly Gentile is a very hard working realestate agent,knowledgeable for both Bradenton and Sarasota. Because I was an out of town buyer I thought she went over and above what a realestate agent job is, just bringing buyer and seller together. Shelley handled paper work for me from banking to inspection and eveything in between. Very highly recomended

Bought a home in 2014
I was totally against new construction, Shelley took us to Bridgewater (just to look at it) and sold us in one day. During the walk through of the new house she was very careful and found issues I missed. I highly recommend her
