Personal Profile

Like many people living in Florida, I'm from someplace else. Born and raised in Michigan, I spent a decade in Colorado Springs before calling the Florida Suncoast home-and I wouldn't trade this sunny slice of paradise for all the snow in Michigan (or Colorado, for that matter!). Relocating across the country multiple times, finding new friends and things to do, and creating a whole new life taught me how to navigate the challenges of buying and selling a home from your point of view. One thing is for sure: it isn't easy.

The truth is, in one way or another, I've been training my whole life to become a real estate agent.

As the co-owner of a successful furniture store in Michigan, I spent a lot of time with homeowners learning what motivated them to buy their homes and understanding how to market and sell to them. As a software executive in Colorado Springs, I lived and breathed contracts, negotiations, and marketing. The skills I honed during this combined, thirty-year period built the foundation for my career as a REALTOR®.

Today, I'm a top-producing agent at one of the leading CENTURY 21® brokerages in the country. I'm committed to securing the best deals (and finding the best digs) for my clients, and I hold a variety of professional designations that allow me to provide you with a higher level of service.

These designations reflect my passion for the KAIZEN™ philosophy of continuous improvement and learning. This mindset is why I continue to study the real estate industry and collect a range of professional designations. In today's constantly evolving real estate market, you need someone who can keep up with industry changes, someone who can and will advocate for you at every step of your real estate transaction. I'm uniquely qualified to do this because of my strong business and project management background. It doesn't hurt that I also have a secret weapon in my back pocket...

My husband, Edward Panas, is also a licensed REALTOR®. As my business partner, Edward provides critical support, media production, and marketing expertise for our buyers and sellers. He loves to handle the boring-I mean, the administrative side of real estate transactions, and he brings over twenty-five years of marketing and business development experience to the table. Our combined proficiencies are the perfect pairing to help you realize your real estate dreams right here in sunny Sarasota, Florida.

Want to know what else we pair well with? Podcasts! Edward and I launched our first podcast, Selling Sarasota, in February of 2018. What started as a side project quickly became a successful, award-winning show that educated buyers and sellers on the real estate market. Based on our experiences with Selling Sarasota, we are going to launch our second podcast later in 2021.

    Shelley Panas was our realtor when my husband and I decided to move from Florida to Arizona in 2019. She was very professional and efficient. In October 2020, after my husband passed away, I decided to move back to Nokomis, Florida for the interim until I decided what to do. I called Shelley and we did a virtual walkthrough of the house that I eventually purchased. She was extremely helpful and accommodating. Fast forward a year and a half later and my decision to move to Portugal, I contacted Shelley again to help with the sale of my house. I received excellent service and Shelley help me sell my house quickly and for a great price. I highly recommend working with Shelley if you are looking to buy or sell on the Suncoast.

    Our century 21 agent who sold our home in Bountiful, Utah did a great job for us. She set it all up for us to work with Shelley in buying our home here in Florida…and Shelley didn't disappoint!! We had a great experience both selling our home and buying our home with Century 21. We'd definitely recommend Shelley to anyone.

    Shelley did an excellent job in selling our home. She was responsive to all of our needs and worked hard at selling and marketing our home.
  • Buyer review
    We worked with Shelley Panas for a previous property purchase in Florida in addition to this latest purchase. We were out of state much of the time for both purchases; Shelley was always able to 'show' us the property via FaceTime or some other virtual means and give us her insight as to the property, location, and other pertinent information. Shelley is very knowledgeable and professional, in addition to being very friendly and enjoyable to work with. She knows the area well and imparts lots of great information for newcomers to Florida such as ourselves. We highly recommend Shelley and her team!

    Shelley was extremely knowledgeable, well spoken, and professional. She responded instantly via email or texts to any questions or concerns. She was very thorough, right from the start, with possible property matches that were available. Shelley made herself available after hours to accommodate our schedule for virtual walk throughs, even helping to take a few measurements for us. She even showed us a live video of the community with help from an assistant while she drove. She helped to organize and coordinate the home inspection and final walk through. She immediately addressed any and all of our concerns. Since we purchased from out of state, she was even thoughtful enough to email us a list of the local utility companies with their contact information. The most important factor, above all, however, was her witty humor and charm! Simply put, we have never dealt with another realtor that even comes close to Shelley. She is extremely professional, and easy to communicate with, whether it be via phone, text, email or smoke signal. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Anything that she doesn't know, she'll research it and get back to you immediately. She makes you feel confident in your purchase, no hidden surprises. She's amazing! She doesn't try to sell you just to sell. She's honest in her representation of the home that she's showing, and that honesty is what made a connection with us. I had a great experience.
