Shannon Gavin

PropertyGuys.com Halifax

Shannon has been a disruptive force in the real estate industry for over 10 years. Having experienced the broken residential real estate model first-hand, leaving home owners to sacrifice much of their hard-earned home equity investments to traditional real estate agents, Shannon was convinced there was a better way. This led Shannon to PropertyGuys.com, Canada's largest private-sale franchise network of its kind, and the purchase of two franchises encompassing all of HRM. Today, Shannon provides a high level of exposure, expertise, advice and advertising for clients selling their homes in the HRM, offering a modern day alternative to real estate agents to help her clients save money while they sell.
