Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Chandler, AZ.
Shirley helped me through the confusing and sometimes scary process of buying my home. I’d been told for years that without a big down payment and near perfect credit score I wouldn’t qualify for a house. Shirley assured me it was possible and was there for me every time I panicked thinking there was something wrong. She made the calls for me and quickly got documentation to show me all was well. I was also going through a rough time in my life and she was a wonderful friend all through the process and is still there for me if I have questions or need help. I just can’t say enough wonderful things about (my hero ??) Shirley Coomer! Valerie T.
I got so lucky with Shirley, I have to admit! As a first-time home buyer, Shirley was the best realtor I could have asked for. She walked me through the entire process thoroughly, answered any questions I had and was always available when I needed her. You can tell she is very experienced and knows exactly what she is doing in the real estate world. I could not be more appreciative for how well everything turned out with my home purchase. 20/10 recommend her. Daniel R.
