Shell Stegall is passionate about getting the answers and results her clients need. Naturally a problem-solver, she does not always take the most common approach, often consulting with appraisers, contractors and attorneys to get results for her clients. She is decisive, authentic, and knowledgeable – with a friendly collaborative approach that gives you confidence.
This attitude, along with being detail oriented and professionally trained in negotiation, has garnered Shell great success, as well as the title of Senior Vice President at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. She has been an associate broker with the firm for 17 years. For the past 9 years, she has partnered with Wanda Hooten, a Vice President and a veteran of both the banking and insurance industries. Their combined talents and business acumen make them consistent top producers for the company.
Having lived in Dallas for 27 years, Shell specializes, along with Wanda, in the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Bluffview, Lakewood, Lake Highlands and north Dallas areas. A graduate of Texas Tech University with a degree in Human Sciences, plus having 50 hours residential building instruction, along with several personal home renovation experiences, Shell brings to real estate a talent for recognizing properties offering strong value.
When asked how she goes about working with Buyers and Sellers, Shell responded, “When working with Buyers, beyond just covering geography, I take clients through a comparative journey, helping to educate them to values and prices. This helps them to be more confident in making decisions regarding home selection and the price they offer. When working with a Seller, putting their unique property up for sale, I position its price very carefully through extensive market research. I also take advantage of staging, high-end professional photography, and always develop a specifically tailored marketing program including social media, print ads, and events, all designed to draw more viewings. I also use Sotheby’s massive worldwide internet presence to unlock the full potential of marketing across many partner website platforms.” Shell added, “Personally, it is very easy for me to share in my client’s real estate ambitions, because they are very interesting and enjoyable people! My business has been blessed with so many cool folks that have become friends over the years and also repeat clients. I am so lucky!”
In a letter written to Briggs Freeman, one 2016 client wrote – “Shell is top-notch! She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, well prepared and knows how to get things done. She and Wanda are a delight to work with and we knew they were constantly trying to protect us from problems and hang-ups in the sale of our house. They were an advantage to us!”
Shell holds a TX Realtor license, a TX Brokers License, is an Accredited Buyers Representative, and is a Preservation Dallas graduate.
