Meet Shelly Bean

As a Seattle native, having lived in various regions around Puget Sound (including over 10 years in Snoqualmie Ridge), I am uniquely qualified to represent you in the purchase or sale of your home.

My expertise lies in first time buyers, sellers, and those looking to downsize or upsize. I also specialize in relocation and have assisted dozens of new families, with some of Seattle’s biggest companies (Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Costco, and Swedish Hospital), in finding the perfect home in our area.

My 12 years in education, as a classroom teacher and school district teacher leader in Lake Washington, gives me a rare perspective on real estate and my interactions with buyers, sellers, and other agents.  Not only do I maintain my fiduciary duties as a broker, but I am always “teaching”. The home buying and/or selling process is often filled with stress and anxiety. I work hard to stay one step ahead and prepare my clients for what is coming next.

I am accessible and available which means I answer your correspondence in a timely manner and provide my clients the one-on-one attention they deserve. As a problem-solver, I seek to find solutions with everyone’s best interest in mind. I take pride in my ability to read people, interpret what they are saying, and work collaboratively with all stakeholders. In this fast-paced market it’s hard to find an agent who takes the time to be there for you. I am that agent. I take the time to provide you the attention and education necessary throughout the entire transaction and beyond.

You need someone with honesty, integrity, accessibility, and of course industry and local knowledge on your side. You won’t find another agent that will work harder for you, with you, and on your behalf!

Join me on this journey and let’s make your housing dreams a reality!


In addition to a Master’s Degree in Education I hold numerous certifications/designations which are valuable assets to my buyers and sellers. I am always learning and always teaching!
