Hello, thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me! I have been helping buyers and sellers achieve their real estate goals since 2003. I specialize in the Vallejo market and cover the surrounding areas of Solano and Napa Counties. I am a full time REALTOR® focused on providing you with exceptional service from the information gathering stage to beyond closing. I have been a Vallejo resident since 1988.
I believe in old fashioned service combined with today’s technology to make your real estate transaction as smooth and stress free as possible. I am focused on getting to know my clients personally and developing long term relationships rather than a quick, one time deal.
My years of successful experience as a REALTOR® enable me to provide you with in depth knowledge of the market. I have consistently been a top producer and am experienced with traditional sales, bank owned properties, short sales and 1031 exchanges. My wide range of experience and negotiation skills will assist you in navigating the best terms when buying or selling. The relationships I have developed within the community and with fellow agents are an added benefit in paving the way for a smooth transaction for you.
The real estate market and trends change consistently, and it is imperative to stay ahead of the curve. I have found that being hyper focused and specializing in the local market is the best way to serve you with expert guidance. Additionally, I take ongoing education seriously and utilize this very important tool to assure that I provide you with the highest value and best consumer experience available in the industry.
You can depend on me to be professional and organized while listening to your needs, keeping you well informed and providing you with honest guidance. I treat your transaction no differently than if it were my own and take pride in earning your trust for all your real estate endeavors.

Shelley Tappin originally worked with us to purchase our home six years ago. When the time came for us to relocate, she was the only agent we would even consider. As a buyer's agent, she is outstanding, and as a seller's agent she is a consummate professional. Her knowledge of the industry and area is complete. Her expertise and advice is always spot on. We successfully closed escrow and could not be more thrilled with her wise guidance with every issue that came up. All this happened with us having already relocated. Shelley managed all of this while we were in a different state! The entire transaction and all of the running around and getting things repaired, reviewed, inspected, etc. was accomplished by Shelley. Five starts are not enough in each category by the way. She is a ten star agent.
I was amazed at how much she went above & beyond my expectations of a Realtor. In addition to walking me thru the process, she also "held my hand" emotionally as I stressed out over the tenant who wouldn't leave and other bumps in the road. She is very knowledgeable, level headed, diplomatic, empathic, kind, and extremely helpful. I never knew a realtor to do so much. She gave me the kind of service that a millionaire might expect. I tend to be rather demanding when I hire someone, but with Shelley, she gave a lot more than I asked for. I can't find enough positive words to describe how well she served me. She's the best!!! (Oh yeah, and by the way, the house sold for more than Zillow's value estimate. She picked just the right number to get the most for it while still quickly attracting a buyer.) I recommend Shelley Tappin without reservation.
Shelley is a great realtor to work with. What she has figured out so well is that by focusing solely on keeping her clients happy, even if it may not be in her own best interest in the short-term, she becomes a respected and well trusted advisor. This should be the paradigm for all professionals.
Without a doubt we found Mrs. Tappin to be the help that we needed to accomplish our need to sell our home in a difficult economic market. She was resourceful and knowledgeable about the real estate market and gave us the peace of mind needed to concentrate on our relocation plans. It is hard to put into word the value of a person like Mrs. Tappin who took the time to understand and value your property you put your life’s blood in and the memories you held dear for over 30 years. If anyone is looking for a capable person who will help you in time of your need to sell then look no further than with Mrs. Tappin.
