Shirley Ramsey

Shirley Ramsey began her journey in real estate more than thirty years ago. After working in an administrative capacity for a family-run business, she knew she wanted a career that would afford her limitless potential for growth. Real estate had always interested her, and after earning her license in 1987, it made for a natural fit. “It turned out to be a great move for me,” she remembers. In the many years since, Shirley has continued to cement herself as a consummate professional, bolstered by a reputation for honesty, authenticity, and seasoned expertise.

Based in the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina—which includes Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point, as well as the nearby communities of Oak Ridge, Kernersville, Colfax, Walkertown, and Clemmons—Shirley spearheads her work alongside her son and business partner of four years, Lucas Ramsey. Together, they serve clients across the county region and also head a full-service property management firm. With over 185 rentals in their portfolio, Shirley and her team have cultivated a respected repertoire and a proven track record. What’s more, Shirley has amassed roughly half her business through repeat and referral clientele. As a more than thirty-year professional, she draws upon decades of local knowledge when guiding clients in buying or selling a home. What’s more, she takes a hands-on approach to the transactional process that applies positivity, diligence, and communication to create a successful experience on behalf of clients. “I believe in giving the best customer service you can,” Shirley says. “I try to make it a positive experience and I’m very mindful of maintaining communication throughout. I have learned over the years how important it is to be a good communicator; it makes all the difference in the world for buyers and sellers to know what’s going on during each step of the process.” Likewise, Shirley customizes her working style to suit each respective buyer and seller. When working with buyers, she goes above and beyond to curate a memorable house-hunting process. When working with sellers, she addresses anxieties and questions by staying accessible and responsive throughout. “It’s a huge milestone to buy a home, and I try my best to make it as stress-free as possible and do extra little things to make it an experience worth celebrating,” Shirley says. “When working with sellers, I follow-up constantly and provide feedback, because I know staying in touch is paramount.”

In fact, Shirley’s approach to the listing process is comprehensive. From pre-photoshoot decluttering and staging to high-quality photographs that capture a property’s finest angles, Shirley leaves no detail unaccounted for. “First impressions make all the difference, and a picture says a thousand words,” Shirley says. From there, she leverages the power of digital marketing to reach wide-ranging online audiences, while mining her extensive database to increase local visibility. “Whether they’re buying or selling, I try to make the transactional experience the best my clients have had in real estate,” Shirley says. “I gauge my approach based on my clients’ goals and personalities, and I do my best to surpass their expectations. I want to give 110% to them and that’s how I get a lot of referrals and repeat business. There are so many emotions and stresses in the process, so I try to be sensitive and handle everything I can on my end so that clients focus on their next chapter.”

Beyond the office, Shirley gives back by staying active in her local church and through animal rescue and welfare organizations. In her remaining free hours, she relishes time spent with family and loved ones, travel with her husband, and playing with her three rescue dogs.

As for the future, Shirley shows no signs of slowing anytime soon. She plans to continue growing the business alongside her son Lucas, while expanding their property management outfit to support local homeowners and investors. “We plan to keep improving what we do, sharpening our skills, and staying abreast of new technology as we develop our business,” she says. Finally, with more than three decades of insights and experience behind her, Shirley considers what she values most about her day-to-day role as agent. “I love the people,” she reflects. “I’ve met some of the most wonderful people through my profession who I would’ve never met otherwise. It’s so rewarding to be able to help someone. I still believe that buying a home is the American Dream, and it’s incredibly gratifying to help people achieve that milestone.”
