It is this experience, professionalism, work ethic and local knowledge that Shelly brings to the table every day to earn her success.

When The Mitchell Family sold their 40-year old, billion dollar real estate company, The Mitchell Group, to Sotheby’s International Realty in 2005, Shelly wanted to stay a local business owner and, together with her husband, bought Carmel Realty Company, Carmel’s premier property management and rental business. At the helm of Carmel Realty Company, and as one of the top sales teams in the market, Shelly’s network, knowledge and inside track on properties gives her clients the critical edge required in today’s market. The synergy of Shelly’s local exposure to investments and sales, her insight to inside knowledge of off market properties, rentals and her global Luxury Real Estate network puts Shelly at the pulse of the real estate community.

Shelly’s family has been in Carmel for over 7 decades and it is her dream come true to be in this idyllic setting. Her husband, Dan, is an avid golfer, advertising executive and her business partner in Carmel Realty Company. He shares her passion for Carmel and the area and together, with their three children: Billy, Lucy and Parker, celebrate the unmatched quality of life here on the Monterey Peninsula.
