Jenn is very professional, energetic, and a go-getter.

She helped me sell my house in 6 days! She has wonderful contacts, knows her market, and will get the job done. Her social media marketing is fantastic. Don't hesitate to consider Jenn when buying or selling your next house.

Lisa T.

I am so glad I decided to use Stevie to sell my first home in Waco and to help me find my second in Austin.

She was always happy to help answer any of my questions... as a new home owner, I had a lot!! Her personal attention to detail and her commitment to drive back and forth from Waco to Austin on numerous occasions was much appreciated. Stevie was dedicated, not to selling us a house, but to helping my husband and me find the perfect new home for our growing family - even though we had a long wish list with conflicting priorities. Stevie's experience enabled her to give us everything we BOTH wanted in our new home. We could not be happier with our end decision that was made possible with Stevie's guidance. That said - I highly recommend Stevie to buy and/or sell your home. Speaking from personal experience, you will not be disappointed!

Lauren R.

I would highly recommend working with Poet Colliver.

She was always very responsive and eager to show me new listings. As a first time buyer, she helped guide me through the entire process and always stayed in constant contact. Thank you Poet for helping me find my first home!

Lacy Richardson

I highly recommend Trent Huffhines.

He proved to be knowledgeable and I learned a lot from him through the process of selling a house split among 3 parties. He went above and beyond the call of duty and I appreciate him so much for making it a smooth sale for all. He is a true professional.

Diane L.

Stevie has extensive experience as a realtor, and she used that experience to sell our house at a top price.

She guided us through a rigorous preparation process to ensure the house was "ready to sell". She also did a thorough comp analysis to determine the true market value of our house. With her extensive network, she got the word out regarding our "open house" just prior to placing the house in MLS. We had excellent traffic at our open house and received a full price offer two days later. Stevie's experience also helped in the negotiation with the buyer's realtor regarding the many details that come up during the process. Stevie was calm and firm in the negotiations and ensured a win-win for all parties. Stevie was on top of all of the details and made sure everything that needed to be addressed was done in a timely manner. We will definitely use her again to buy or sell our next home.

Ray A.

The Waco area is completely unfamiliar to us as we currently live in another state, so finding a realtor that was knowledgeable was of great importance to us.

Jenn was that, but she also showed herself to be a person of integrity as she informed us of things a person with less scruples may have concealed. She was also very patient with us as she showed us a number of homes, again pointing out those things an informed home buyer needs to know. Unfortunately our plans changed and we were not able to buy anything in Waco, but if our plans ever change Jenn is the person we will call.

Jenn is an AMAZING realtor to work with!

She went above and beyond to make the home buying process/relocating from Dallas as easy as possible for us! If we couldn’t make it to see a house, she would send videos or FaceTime to be sure we didn’t miss out on a house! I honestly can not say enough good things about my experience working with Jenn Shelburne!

From day one of working with Cody Powell of Bentwood Realty, he was a Godsend and we felt like we were in great hands.

Cody was very professional and went above and beyond to help us get our house sold. Cody made us feel comfortable in every step of the process and showed us excellent client service! He helped us get the house ready for showings, advised us of showings, helping us through the negotiations process, and was there for us all the way through closing, He answered our calls and texts, no matter what time of day. We could not be happier to have worked with Cody and definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!

Taylor is a wonderful realtor.

He was with us through every aspect of owning our first home. He continued to keep us up to date, and helped speed along the process of it all. All of the questions that my husband and I had were answered quickly through the whole wait time. You can tell he enjoys his job and definitely makes everything less stressful. We really enjoyed working with him. He helped us find our forever home.

Amber W.

Have been working with Jenn since August of 2016.

She somehow stays on top of every detail. Not sure how she does it. Whenever I bring up some minute thing from a contract or ask a question she seems to know everything about it off the top of her head. It's crazy.

David H.

Poet has helped me navigate several transactions.

From the sale of a $400,000 home, the purchase of $50000-100000 rental properties or the purchase/sale of farm/ranch land, Poet is always on top of the process and has lots of contacts to pull your rear out of the fire if plumbing bursts on the day of closing

Mechelle S.

We had the BEST experience with Jenn as our realtor.

We were starting to look at a house on a Sunday, found our house on Monday, looked again on Tuesday, and we were under contract on Wednesday! We moved in 30 days from being under contract. The process was SO easy with Jenn & when we buy our next home we will absolutely be using her in the future! We had zero hesitations about choosing her as our realtor and will recommend her to everyone we know! Thank you, Jenn for the absolute best experience of our life. You made this process so pleasant, easy, and helped us understand each process by being patient and knowledgeable.

Arianna S.

Trent is the Best!

Through rain, sleet, and snow he made sure we understood everything, and that everything was taken care of as he promised. Would highly recommend him and of course Bentwood!

Octavia S-L.

Trust is very important.

Jerrell R.

Stevie helped us find our dream home.

My husband and I were very particular on what we wanted and even considered building because we were so picky. Stevie was always professional and patient and made it her personal goal to find a home that would best suit our family. Our priority was settling in a place that our one year old twins would enjoy. A neighborhood that provides safety, nice amenities and a top education system. After viewing several houses Stevie brought us to "the one". It happened to be the plan we were looking to build but with nicer upgrades and a wonderful community for the boys. I recommend that you look to Stevie Sheffield if you want a realtor who truly dedicates herself to find the perfect home for you and your family.

Cristi P.

I personally used Joseph at Bentwood Realty as my Realtor.

And as a first time buyer I had lots of questions. Joseph made the house hunting and transaction go smooth. Highly recommend him and plan to use him for my future buys ???

Sophia Felix

Stevie helped us to find our home.

We were very specific in what we wanted and she never gave up on us finding that perfect home. She took us to as many properties as we wanted. She was also knowledgeable about the area, the schools, the comps in the area. She was very responsive to our needs and we enjoyed working with her so much so that we have recommended her to other family and friends.

Kristi R.

Jenn was very detailed - very helpful in helping us find the right - smaller - home in the right neighborhood in the right price range.

She was always available, and assisted from starting to look, through looking, to inspections, to repairs, to moving in. All with a happy and helpful attitude.

Jon W.

Jenn was AMAZING to work with!

From our initial meeting to closing we had the best experience. This was our first time selling a home and Jenn took care of everything diligently. Not only did Jenn sell our house she found us the perfect new home and negotiated it to an AMAZING price! Jenn anticipated our needs and explained each step of the process in verbiage we could understand. Above all Jenn was professional and very responsive to calls. We couldn’t have had a better realtor to sell our home and find us a fantastic middle home! Thank You very much Jenn for all of your hard work!

Misha R.

Stevie was wonderful.

She listened to exactly what we were looking for and helped us find it. Helped us negotiate a price below appraised value. And continues to be there for us when ever we have questions. I would recommend Stevie to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Nichole S.

Outstanding agent!

She took the time to walk us though the process of selling our home. At each turn she was there keeping us informed and knew what we needed to do in order to make the transaction happen. Starting from the interview at initial meeting until closing day, you need someone who is patient and willing to work for you. Jenn knows Waco and understands the market. We would strongly recommend Jenn to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home in the Waco area

Anonymous

Working with Jenn was great!

She listened to what we wanted and needed for our growing family and found us the perfect house. She was always willing to give her expert opinion and was very knowledgeable at every stage of the buying process. We would definitely recommend Jenn!

Kimberly P.

Stevie was a blessing when it came to us finding our home in Texas while we were in North Carolina !

She was amazing making sure everything we needed was taken care of while we were so far away .

Casie P.

Stevie helped us find a house that for our exact specifications that was never on the market.

As a native Wacoan, she knows the area well and has a great network of buyers and sellers. She responds quickly and is always available to talk about issues. I recommend her to anyone moving to Waco.

Hamilton L.

I met Stevie for the first time 4 years ago when we wanted to buy a condo for our daughter's use while she was attending graduate school at Baylor.

Stevie was very knowledgeable about the area, showed me different types of property as I was unfamiliar with Waco and Texas. We ended up buying a condo with Stevie's assistance. My daughter is finishing at Baylor and there was no question that we would list the Condo with Stevie. Stevie did an excellent job marketing the condo and it sold quickly. Stevie was on top of all the paperwork; even with an out-of-town seller and buyer it closed on the date it was supposed to. My daughter was also happy with Stevie's services and recommended her to a friend in the graduate program. Stevie also listed and sold that condo. She is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and a pleasure to do business with.

Monique G.

Trent goes above and beyond to make your dream a reality with his heartfelt no pressure sales.

From day one to the end we always trusted he was handling our purchase with all the care as if it was his own. He was always there to answer our questions, and we had a lot, yet never seemed put out. Best choice we could of made! Thank you for everything!!!

Rebecca B.

There can be no better realtor in the Waco area than Stevie!

After retiring for the second time with plans to either move to Waco or Fort Worth to be nearer to our children, my husband and I looked at homes in both areas. Stevie helped us look at everything in the Waco area and enabled us to make a wise decision for us. Her knowledge of the market and her helpfulness and consideration of our time frame made our experience so pleasant. We found a wonderful new home in Fort Worth because of her enabling us to understand what we could and couldn't buy in Waco.

Cindy H.

Jenn is great at what she does!

Cares for her clients, fights for them to get the best deal, and has a lot of fun doing it! Highly recommend!

Sarah J.

Thank you Stevie Pena Sheffield with Bentwood Realty for going above and beyond in helping us sell our family home.

Even though it was difficult to see it go, your help - from strategizing, to staging, to moving, and everything in between - brought amazing results in record time. Can't thank you enough!!! You're amazing!!!

"Poet sold my house in Belton Texas last year and did a fantastic job.

Everything from the initial meeting to the closing was professional and she made it very easy on me. I highly recommend Poet for your Real Estate needs. "

Mark Northcutt

Jenn is Amazing!

She walked us through every step and made everything so easy. She was knowledgeable about the entire process and even helped us when we experienced a small hiccup. Will definitely tell everyone we know to go see Jenn!

Jenn D.

From the first time I met Jenn, she was very informative and helpful, as well as super friendly.

She really listened to my desires for a family home and offered useful suggestions and tips. Jenn was very patient with me as I changed my mind throughout the house hunting process. She always responded promptly to my messages and calls, and was on top of things throughout the whole buying experience. Overall, it was a very pleasant and fun home-buying adventure with Jenn

Meghan M.

Jenn was way more than just a realtor!

By the end of it all she became part of the family. She helped my family and I in more ways than most realtors do. From helping us pick out flooring to picking paint colors, she went above and beyond! Jenn is super honest about everything and won’t sugar code a thing! She fights to make sure her clients get the absolute best. We completely adore Jenn Shelburne and recommend her, she’s the best in the business!

Jamey S.

We live in Plano, and found Jenn was the listing agent on a property we were looking at.

It turns out that property wasn't a fit for us, but she was so helpful, we had her send us some leads on other properties. She was proactive, listened to our needs, and really hustled! She met us on short notice when we were in town, and took videos of properties when we couldn't come to Waco to see them in person. She found us a great property that we purchased before it hit the market. We are grateful for Jenn's hard work on our behalf.

Randy M.

We relocated from Carmel, Indiana to Waco August of 2012.

There are many things that create stress when moving across country with two young girls, but Stevie made sure finding and buying a home was not one of them. She took time to take pictures, look at homes personally and give us honest assessments of what we were seeing online. She stuck with us and patiently addressed every concern until we found the right home. Then she helped us get the right deal. I couldn't recommend her enough.

Melie V.

Stevie was not only an amazing Realtor when we were looking for our home, she continues to be a resource and friend.

I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking!
