Shelby has been in Real Estate for over 18 years and has been on of the top five producers at Olde Town Brokers for the last seven years. A Florida native, Shelby was born and raised in Cocoa Beach. She attended the University of Central Florida where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Communications, and then her Masters in Liberal Studies from Rollins College.
Her passion for people and her profound interest in the art of negotiation has led Shelby to a successful career in Real Estate. Shelby draws her inspiration from three pioneers who were instrumental in the revitalization of Downtown Orlando – Craig Ustler, Steve Kodsi and Phil Rampy.
Shelby focuses her attention mainly to the parks of Orlando – Thornton Park, Delaney Park, College Park, Baldwin Park & Winter Park – and says she truly enjoys connecting with people, where every day is different and every transaction is a new challenge.
Playing a major role in generating substantial growth to the Downtown Orlando area, Shelby was deeply involved in the development of three instrumental high-rises from the ground up. She contributed to the growth of ZOM Residential where she was the head leasing agent for The Waverly on Lake Eola. Subsequently, she moved on to work for Historic Creations and was the Director of Sales for the luxury condo buildings The Sanctuary and Star Tower.
Shelby’s compassion for people and her community has contributed to her overall success. She is a huge supporter of local artists and the local art scene – serving on the Downtown Arts District Board (DAD) for six years. She was recently appointed to the Orange County Arts and Cultural Affairs Advisory Council. She is also a Circle Member for the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center and has been on the Runway to Hope committee where she assists local children and their families who have been impacted by pediatric cancer for the last several years.
Shelby describes herself as enthusiastic, energetic and a hard worker. She was given the nickname “Penthouse Shelby” because she has sold most of the penthouses in the Downtown high-rises.
