    Shirley did so amazing to help us find our home. She was honest with her feedback regarding houses seen, took into consideration our growing family and what would be best for us regarding a home for a family, as well as making sure we were getting the best home for our money. She was very flexible in regards to times to see houses - taking time out of her schedule on New Years Eve to show us the house that we ended up purchasing. I would recommend Shirley because she wasn't a pushy realtor, meaning she wasn't pressuring us to see multiple houses, she let us decide what we wanted to see.

    Being a first time homebuyer, I understandably had no idea what I was doing. As a result, I asked a ton of questions and Shirley had no problem answering in great detail. She knew what I wanted in a home and although we looked at several homes during the process, she was able to find the one that was perfect for me. She pointed me in the direction of reliable contractors, warranty companies etc to help make my homebuying experience smoother. She was so genuine and so patient with me. Whenever I had to call her nearly last minute to get in the home for one issue or another she never complained and was always available.

    Shirley was the perfect choice for buying our first home. She was always available for any questions we had and was quick to respond. We found our house within looking at a few houses, but it's obvious she would have been patient to take us to see a hundred more. She wanted to be sure we knew it was the right one. She would point out things that were obvious problems in homes to make sure we knew all the house needed before deciding. One of the reasons we chose her to be our realtor is because she had experience in dealing with fixer upper homes, though in the end, we chose to go with a home that was move in ready. Overall, I would recommend Shirley because she was super patient and very communicative. Communication is key. ~ A. Fleck

    Shirley did everything I needed. Knowing that my property was of low value because of the house being unlivable, Shirley still helped me out greatly and accomplished everything I needed since my house is in Indiana and I lived in Alabama. She always kept me up to date and always guided me in how things are. Treated me with dignity and of value even with house not being worth the time for other realtors Excellent, Respectful and Honorable I was very pleased and thankful to Shirley Nivens. Since house was very old, basically of no value, Shirley took on the task to help me out and I think that many other realtors would had passed me by since house was not worth their time of day. Shirley took it on and helped me deeply... I am very very thankful and honored to be treated with respect. As I have said, I feel many other realtors would had passed me up since house was not of any value, only the land was. Shirley came to the plate and helped me greatly in my life ~ Bob Wiles, Alabama

    Shirley was amazing! Understood what we were looking for and didn't waste our time showing us homes we would not care about seeing. ~ Rob and Sonya
    Working with Shirley Niven was a pleasure. As a first time homebuyer, she listened to my needs and wants in a home. Within a couple of hours of our first conversation, she had already sent me a long list of homes that seemed to fit my needs. There was nothing that Shirley was lacking. She treated me as if I was a family member searching for a home. She took time to point out any things that she thought might be a problem for homes I was considering. Shirley's response time and amount of communication was excellent. One of the reasons I was able to close very quickly on the home that I wanted was because Shirley worked quickly to fill out contracts and send them to me. I didn't have to constantly remind her to do things we had discussed. And she was even on vacation during part of the process which could have slowed things down, but it did not. ~ Ashley Perry, Hammond
    I am a first time home buyer in an area with no family. I was looking for a realtor that not only dealt with the home, but also provided me their own personal and professional advice. Shirley made sure she was looking out for my best interests. When we looked at properties, she pointed out pros and cons and never made me feel she was just trying to get the sale. Feeling comfortable that my agent was looking out for me was vital to my selection. Shirley walked me through the steps carefully and made sure I understood exactly what was happening at each point. She genuinely made me feel she was treating me like she would her own family. I never once felt confused on where I was in the process and if I ever had questions, she got back to me in a very timely manner. Overall, I feel not only grateful, but blessed that Shirley and I crossed paths. I can't imagine having a smoother first time buying experience and I am forever appreciative of everything she did to help make my dream of owning a home come true. ~ Paige Northrup, Hammond
    Shirley is he best, used her twice now. Once to buy our first home and then to sell our first home and find our forever home.

Crown Point
