Gracik Makinney Group is thrilled to announce Shelly Valdiserri as our newest realtor team member.

Shelly knows firsthand the challenges and rewards of finding a perfect home and selling a home quickly. She has been in the interior design field for the past 15 years and brings her extensive experience to the real estate field, whether that is staging your home to show off its best assets or helping you see the possibilities and potential of homes you are viewing.

Her experience has given her insight on what sellers can do to get top dollar for their home to encourage a timely sale. Likewise, she can advise buyers about possibilities for making a house a home that works for them along with anticipated pricing. Did we mention she also has experience working in marketing and advertising?

Shelly literally grew up immersed in the housing industry. Her father was a builder and her mother a successful realtor, and she grew up learning the nuances of building homes, remodeling, decorating, and buying properties.

She earns praise from her clients for her energy, enthusiasm, commitment, and resourcefulness. She is known for being proactive and professional and having a positive attitude—a true asset in this business!

Shelly is a long-time resident of the western suburbs. She and her husband raised their two daughters in Elmhurst. They have also lived in Chicago, Hinsdale, Naperville, and Glen Ellyn. She definitely has the insight and knowledge of the area!

Please join us in welcoming Shelly! You can reach out to her (or any of us!) through our website, or contact her directly at (630) 886-8039.
