What Our Clients Say

Kim P. - Seller

"To say I was nervous, anxious, or even a little stressed about selling my house of almost twenty years would be putting it mildly!  However, after sitting down with Sonia and Steve my worries went away!  They guided me through every step from getting the house ready to go to market, showings and closing! T hey are both professionals, knowledgeable and patient!  I wouldn’t have wanted to work with anyone else and have already recommended them!  They are truly friends and realtors for life!"

Will D. and Kelly B. - First Time Buyers

“We first met Sonia after being referred by one of Kelly's teaching colleagues who recently bought and sold her home with Sonia's help. The review we received was stellar and I think that was underselling it! Sonia took the time out of her schedule to sit down with Kelly and I, getting to know us personally and understand our goals, priorities, timeline, and lifestyle to not only get us into a house we loved, but to do it without sacrificing our lifestyle. When it came time to do walk-throughs, Sonia and Steve are rock stars. They have such tremendous knowledge of the area and what problems to look out for in each geographic region. They showed up to each home prepared with not only details of the home, but quickly gathered info on who the sellers were and what their selling situation was, which became a vital part in submitting an attractive offer. Despite hearing stories from friends and coworkers about how hard the process can be, Kelly and I couldn't have asked for a smoother process, and we can't wait to invite them to our housewarming party!”

Ray and Diane W. - Sellers

"Sonia Shakeshaft and her son, Steve, are a fantastic RE/MAX Professionals real estate team. We highly recommend them! They were very professional, reassuring and helpful through the overwhelming process of downsizing and moving out of our home of twenty years. Our home sold over a September weekend - three showings and two offers, with one at full asking price. Steve was available to provide additional manpower to projects, which was much appreciated. Their referrals from stager, to handyman, to movers were excellent. Their knowledge of the process is amazing. Their patience is boundless. Closing went quickly and painlessly. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have met them."

"Sonia and Steve are the most caring and attentive business professionals we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Their relentless effort to do what is best for their clients is unprecedented. Their experience, industry knowledge, strong negotiation skills and personalized attention assured us throughout the process that we were in good hands.

Sonia and Steve both went above and beyond every step of the way. They share such an enthusiasm and high level of energy through their work and always do everything in their power to do the right thing and serve their clients’ best interest. No doubt - they are the team to have on your side!

Sonia and Steve made our buying and selling process stress-free and a true pleasure! They get our highest recommendations!"

Danny M. - First Time Buyer

"I'm thrilled to be able to write a testimonial for Sonia and Steve Shakeshaft to express the fantastic experience I had when buying a home in the Denver/Aurora area.  I was referred to Sonia by my family's RE/MAX agent in Colorado Springs, and I am so glad I was.  Sonia knows the Denver market very well, has seen it through its highs and lows, which proved to be of significant importance, a fact I'll speak to later.

When I first started communicating with Sonia via email, I noticed that she was including Steve on our correspondence. At first I was a bit confused as to the reason considering I had only spoken with her on the phone and my first trip out looking at homes was just with her. However, it was during the first week I learned their teamwork really supports their clients in the fast paced Denver market. In the first couple days, I was set-up with an account on a tool to look at houses that met my initial targeted area and price range, and as I found houses to look at since I essentially had 2 agents, it allowed me the opportunity to see them all on my schedule, before they vanished off the market. If Sonia was busy, Steve could help show me the units, and vice versa.

Sonia and Steve do an especially great job learning about their clients' personalities. I'm not a particularly vocal person, but they were able to understand the type of home and neighborhood I would be comfortable with in only a matter of days. The main aspect of the experience I appreciated is the fact that Steve and Sonia gently guide their clients to the market that suits them best. I originally thought I was going to find a detached house closer to Denver, but as Steve and Sonia showed me the types of houses that were available in my price point in those areas, along with some houses more in Aurora, I could see that a house with a reasonable HOA in Aurora would probably be a better option for me personally.

When the moment came, and I found the house that I was happy with, this is where having an experienced agent comes into play, especially with how quick houses come off the market in Denver. Sonia artfully crafted an offer, after asking me what my comfort level was with various aspects that go into the offer (time of possession, escalation clauses, etc.) and delivered it to the listing agent all in a small amount of time. She knows a lot of the agents in the Denver area, and since she knows what they look for in an offer, she was able to tailor the offer just for this particular listing agent.

As the sellers considered their offers, Sonia and Steve kept me updated the whole time, letting me know when I would hear back, and what to expect when I did. Thankfully, they accepted my offer, and I am so thrilled they did. They made sure the counter offer was something I was comfortable with, and throughout the closing process, having both Steve and Sonia there to answer my questions on all the paperwork was of tremendous value.

I can't say enough good things about my experience, but in summary, if anyone is looking for a great duo to support them in a very important life decision, Sonia and Steve are a couple of the most friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive real estate agents in the Denver metro area.  Thank you Sonia and Steve!"

Anonymous - Relocation Buyers

"As a couple with quite a bit of experience in purchasing homes and other properties over the past decades, we have engaged the service of many different real estate brokers. In all of the real estate transactions that we have made, we can say without hesitation that working with Sonia Shakeshaft, and her son, Steve, was the most positive experience we have ever had.

Sonia and Steve have a team of specialists working with them, and all together they made our recent purchase flow flawlessly and timely. We had some unique circumstances to consider and they were able to offer expert advice to meet our challenges. In addition to helping us hone in on an area within our budget, they also directed us to the best mortgage company that we’ve ever worked with, as well as a top notch property inspector.

Sonia has been in the real estate business for a number of years, and her experience shows. Steve has recently joined her. He shares his mother’s keen intellect, organizational and communication skills, as well as her quick wit. He has picked up the business quickly from his mentor. Always on top of deadlines, the two of them kept us informed every step of the way. We have never had the pleasure of working with brokers so dedicated to the client as these two.

We actually looked forward to the time spent with Sonia and Steve, whether it was during our search for properties, or at the closing table. They both have a great sense of humor on top of their warm personalities. They took a genuine interest in us and made the process so much fun! We have closed on a home, but have opened up a lasting friendship that we have developed by working with the two of them."

Danielle P. - Seller Relocating Out of State

"I have known Sonia for about three and a half years now.  I first met her because I was not extremely happy with the Realtor that we had used to purchase our home, so for my aunt's condo purchase I wanted to find a different Realtor to help her.  From day one, Sonia had great communication, she was extremely quick to respond, completely open, honest, patient and kind.  Since then she has continued to be a consistent Realtor and a great friend.  She was always willing to answer real estate questions and even just home improvement related questions...even though at that time, I had never given her a dime of my own money.  And boy...she's got the hook-ups!  She knows someone that can help you fix every single thing in your house, and because you know her, you will always get the best deals and be treated very well.  The best thing about Sonia is that no matter if you have a million dollar house to sell or you're buying a starter home, she is going to treat you the same; with respect and utmost care.  I don't know how she finds the time, but she always makes me feel like I'm her only client (even though I know that's not even close to the case), with how responsive she is and the special touches she is able to bring to the table.  Not only that, but she KNOWS HER STUFF!!  When you are transacting real estate, you want someone on your side that will stand up for you, and someone that knows what is fair and what isn't.  Sonia is that person.  She is a master negotiator and it seemed that when we were selling our home, she made offers appear out of thin air.  Even though I am no longer in Colorado and will miss her as my Realtor, I know that I have a life-long friend in Sonia.  She is just the BEST!!!  Call (or text) her today!!!"

Matt and Alyssa N. - First Time Buyers

"Sonia is incredibly knowledgeable and made the whole home buying process a breeze even in the crazy Denver market.  She always made time for our questions and was even sending in offers at the wee hours of the morning, in some cases, to make sure we had the best chance possible of getting the home of our dreams.

As first time home buyers, we really appreciated how thorough she was in explaining all the steps of the process.  We truly felt like she had our best interest in mind and was not just trying to get us to buy the first house we looked at. 


Sonia's experience in the industry is unmatched and we do not think we would have gotten our house without her!"

Christine W. - Seller Relocating Out of State

"The words 'thank you' seem inadequate to express all you have done for us.  Everything you do reflects your care and interest in the welfare of your clients.  I am very blessed to have met you and have you in my life.  I wish you and your family continued blessings."

Mike and Stephanie N. - Parents of Matt N. and His Wife, Alyssa N.

"Stephanie and I wanted to extended our gratitude for your help and guidance with Matt and Alyssa. We have no idea how their offer was accepted over the other but can only assume the home was meant for them. They wouldn't have been successful without your experience, relationships, and strategy. You are truly world-class!"

Daniel and Caity F. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

“I have known Sonia Shakeshaft since I was a freshman in high school where I played hockey with both of her sons.  I knew then that Sonia was passionate and very good at what she does, but it was not until I was given the opportunity to work with her for the first time that I truly knew how amazing she is.  Just over two years ago my wife and I decided that we wanted to get out of the rental market and purchase our first home.  Of course, Sonia was the first and only person we called to help us through this process for the first time.  She made everything as easy and simple as possible, connecting us with an amazing lender and helping us understand the “do’s” and “don’ts” when buying a first home.  Once we found the house we wanted, we had to move fast as this was the peak of the buying boom.  There were fifteen offers, including four or five cash offers on this little house, and we were not sure how we could compete.  This is where Sonia’s brilliance showed through.  From the second we stepped on the property, she was already selling us and our story to the listing agent.  Sonia talked us through the appropriate strategy and helped us determine the best course to take.  She helped us to make sure we were competitive while still staying within our means of what we felt comfortable with.  In the end, thanks to her persistence and attention to detail we got the house despite all the other offers!

Over the next two years Sonia was always in touch.  She was always available at any time for questions we had or recommendations for contractors.   She has a vast array of contractor recommendations, who at the drop of a hat, all respond very timely and do great work.  She not only helped us improve our home, but when we were ready to sell, she was right there to help us through the process.  She helped us purchase a new home, as well as sell our previous home, in an extremely timely and efficient manner.  Sonia dazzled again, making our offer stand out to a seller in a still competitive market.  This was not the only impressive feat this time around.  Sonia walked us through everything we needed to know to best represent our home on the market and to make sure it sold for the best possible price.  We agreed with her guidance on what work needed to be done and how to list it.  We ended up selling for over list price and everything went as smooth as one could imagine.

Sonia really is the best at what she does and truly has her clients’ best interest in mind with everything she does.  Sonia is the only Realtor I would ever recommend, though I will never be able to fully express or put into words how helpful and knowledgeable she is throughout the buying and selling process.”

Duane and EJ R. - First Time Buyers

"We are so very fortunate to have been connected with Sonia.  As first time home buyers, the process of buying a home is daunting.  Our friends had recently purchased and urged us to contact Sonia.  After showing some reluctance, our friends told us more about their experience with Sonia.  I called Sonia the next day and we talked for over thirty minutes.  I quickly understood why our friends were promoting Sonia so passionately.

Sonia was there any time we needed to discuss something with her.  Her communications through email, phone calls, and text were outstanding.   No question or concern we had was too small, and she certainly helped us learn everything we needed to know about the home buying process along the way.  Her attention to detail and understanding of our goals really put us at ease.  The knowledge, expertise, and team that Sonia has built is second to none.

I could go on and on about how wonderful the whole experience was in working with Sonia, however; I will sum it up by what my friend told me, "Just call her, you won't regret it. She is the best!"  Simply put, but so true!  After months of searching in a tough market, we're in our dream home! 

In Sonia we know that not only do we have THE BEST Realtor but truly a great friend."

Kathleen L. - Seller

"I want to let you know how very grateful I am for everything you did in selling my brother's house after he passed away. I remembered him speaking so highly of you when you helped him buy the house. At our first meeting, I could see how much you truly cared about what my family was going through. That's when I knew you were the right person for us. Little did I know how much you had everything under control, from helping us find an attorney, an accountant and the right people to do repairs on the house. Your guidance at this difficult time made many decisions easier and lifted a great deal of stress and worry off my shoulders. You were always available day or night to answer my calls, texts and emails and many times were the voice of reason. It was truly amazing watching you do what you do best when selling the house. Your attention to detail is unbelievable and my family loved your brochures and web tour. I couldn't believe the number of people who looked at the house in the two days it was on the market. You kept me informed of the showings and the feedback. In the end, we had multiple offers, most for over asking price. You made the closing process seem smooth and effortless. I want you to know how much I appreciated the great deal of sensitivity you showed my family. You also made sure everyone we dealt with did the same. From the moment we met, you always had our best interest at heart. THANK YOU! I will ALWAYS recommend you to everyone! YOU ARE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!"

Ben and Brooke D. - Sellers

"We have learned so much in this transaction: 1. Things are infinitely easier when people do their jobs and check their egos at the door. 2. Communication is vital. 3. We LOVE you because you excel at items 1 and 2! Selling our place has been so smooth, easy and lovely! We LOVE you, Sonia! We so VERY much appreciate you, your knowledge, your poise, your professionalism, your problem solving, your wonderful personality and demeanor in making our dream come true! We won't EVER forget what you've done for us. We will put our big mouths to use whenever people ask for a Realtor recommendation. I will give people your name at EVERY opportunity going forward. We knew you were great, but now we know what an absolute rock star you really are!"

Keith and Kelly P. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Thank you so much for everything, Sonia! You made the process of finding a new home a joy and the complexity of fixing up our old one seem so simple. You are definitely a gifted Realtor and the personal touches that you add really make a difference. I can't wait to recommend you to my family and friends! Keep in touch, my friend!"

Joe and Lindsey C. - First Time Buyers

"My husband and I cannot say enough amazing things about Sonia! She was so great in helping us find our home. We went through a lot of homes to find the right one and Sonia held our hands through it all. She was up at all hours of the night taking care of offers and searches for us. We always knew that we could count on her. When we closed on our home, Sonia gave us great contractors, who she has used and trusts, to work with in doing some updates. They have been fabulous and without those recommendations, we would have been lost! Thank you Sonia!!!"

Ron and Celia S. - Large Acreage Buyers

"Working with Sonia is refreshing. She loves what she does and it shows in every detail. She does not miss a thing and she made every aspect of our land purchase a real joy. We would not work with anyone else!"

Rich and Ann B. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Sonia has worked with us over the last few months on buying a new home and selling our existing home.  Sonia has become more than just a Realtor to us; she's become a friend.  When looking for a Realtor to work with, we had very high expectations.  We wanted someone who was quick to respond, knowledgeable, resourceful, dependable, available and accountable.  A friend recommended Sonia and said, "No doubt, she'll work hard for you and you won't be disappointed."  We quickly learned that Sonia had everything we were looking for in a Realtor and much more.  Sonia is a go-getter like no other.  We have never seen anyone respond so quickly and to make sure our every need was met.  She gained our trust and confidence in no time and made us feel like we were her top priority.  Sonia knows how to get the job done and made a stressful process go as smoothly as it possibly could go.  She never cuts corners and makes sure everything is perfect in all that she does and gets it done right the first time.  Sonia makes sure everyone working with her stays on task to meet every deadline.  She has an eye for detail and the innate ability to capture and present the highest quality product.  Our expectations were far exceeded working with her.  We found all that we wanted working with Sonia - we bought our dream home and effortlessly sold our house in a short amount of time.  No doubt, Sonia Shakeshaft is the best Realtor around."

Al and Gail P. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"HUGE THANKS to Sonia Shakeshaft with RE/MAX Professionals!  She redefines excellent customer service and makes selling your home as hassle free as it can be!  And man, does she know her stuff!  We sold our home in just 8 days!  Yes, 8 days and got full asking price!  Couldn't have done it without the skills and selling expertise Sonia personifies.  And, on top of that, we found our dream home and closed on it simultaneously!  SONIA...YOU ARE THE BEST!  THANKS A MILLION!  P.S.  Your Mtn Dew is on the way!  LOL!"

Eric M. - Seller and Move-Up Buyer

"Wow!  Just wanted to say that everything you did to list the Perry house is amazing!  Love the brochure, the web listing, the descriptions...everything!  I must say that you go the extra mile and it shows!  The listing has a premium feel and you hit this one out of the park!  Thank you for your attention to detail and hard work on all the digital and printed materials!  THANK YOU!"

Greg R. - Seller Relocating Out of State

"I'm sending this note in hopes of expressing my sincere appreciation for your efforts in selling my home. I took great pride in my home and selling was a difficult decision to make. You made me feel like you completely understood that connection and could relate to my particular situation and special needs. Your understanding of the Denver housing market, consistent follow-up and sensitivity to my selling decision made me feel completely confident that my real estate needs were being met. I felt a sense of comfort knowing that you had everything under control and my home was being taken care of. That sounds like something you'd expect from a friend watching your home while you're out of town, not from your Realtor. I couldn't have asked for a better selling experience!"

Steve and Cara W. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Having worked with Sonia for years in a previous industry, we were confident in her commitment to excellent customer service and her high integrity. She made everything about the process bearable. We were in a double move situation because she sold our home in a record 13 days with the highest sales price in the neighborhood! She helped us through every step of the process. She went well above and beyond to make sure we remained sane. Sonia was excellent and did a phenomenal job. We will continue to use her in the future and will always consider her a close family friend!"

John and Carla T. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"FIVE STARS! My wife and I initially hired Sonia to sell our home and the results were exceptional! She sold it within a few days for full asking price and negotiated good terms on inspection items. A wonderful experience! We were equally as impressed, if not more, with her skills as our Buyer's Agent. Sonia was a strong advocate for us when we purchased our new home, despite a stout seller's market and we are exceedingly happy with the results. Sonia is as hard a worker as you'll find in the real estate business and her experience and high integrity were paramount to our success navigating a volatile marketplace. She’s a great listener and a good friend, working tirelessly on your behalf. You cannot go wrong hiring Sonia to buy or sell your home. We highly recommend her. I'm not even sure that sums up our gratitude!"

Andrea B. - First Time Buyer

"You made my first home buying experience easy, painless and even fun! Thank you for all your hard work and I look forward to doing it again in the future!"

Jason and Julie M. - Move-Up Buyers

"Thank you so much for all your hard work and assistance during our home buying experience. Your attention to detail and real care made this experience so painless. Your generosity and passion in helping everything come together meant the world to us. You have proved to be an exceptional agent, and friend, and we are so grateful to have had you on 'our side'. We remain forever indebted to you for fighting our battles with the builder and providing superb customer service. It's so evident why you have been will forever be successful. You are the BEST!!!"

Dana N. - First Time Buyer

"You were such a blessing throughout this process and I say it all the time to everyone I know. Truly, I appreciated your guidance and support. My first place is everything I wanted! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!"

Shane M. - First Time Buyer

"They say a man's home is his castle.  Well, because of Sonia Shakeshaft, I finally have my castle!  I recently had the pleasure of working with Sonia in the purchase of my first home.  Sonia was there every step of the way, tirelessly working with my best interests at heart.  She held my hand when I needed it, she took calls and returned texts at all hours of the night and made what is generally known as a tough process a whole lot easier.  Sonia is a true professional, but most importantly, she went above and beyond to make sure my home was exactly what I was looking for.  I would highly recommend Sonia to anyone looking to buy or sell a house."  

Mark and Andrea P. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Thank you for everything that you do! We appreciate it more than you know. Thank you for all the sun you bring into our lives!"

Wilson A. and Deborah W. - Relocation Buyers, Then Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Sonia walks on water!"

Autumn M. - First Time Buyer

"Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication in finding me such a beautiful home. You made my first home buying experience incredible! I feel like a new woman! I value your friendship and look forward to future business!"

Brian S. and Matt S. - First Time Buyers

"With Sonia's guidance, patience, meticulous attention to detail and inherent ability to calm hysterical soon-to-be homeowner, she held our needy hands through the process, ensuring our concerns were met with immediate action and resolution. Our expectation was to look to Sonia to show us available homes on the market and make sure we were making a sound investment decision. We did not expect someone to meet us at the design center multiple time to design our home, recommend and attend meetings with our lender, drive out of her way to the site of our new home weekly, nor to facilitate concerns with our builder. She proactively did all of this for us and we could not have been more appreciative. The results of all Sonia's efforts are so outstanding we do not even know how to begin to describe them. We now have a home with everything we were looking for. Sonia now has clients (and friends) for a lifetime. We have recommmended Sonia to many people over the past year and are confident she would treat our friends and family as her own. We trust that she will treat all her clients with the integrity, dignity, honestly and helpfulness that she has shown us. We are so grateful for her efforts!"

Doug and Kelly S. - Sellers

"Thank you so very much for everything you did for us! You truly were our angel!"

Chris and Heidi K. - Sellers

"Sonia made a very stressful time much more pleasant. She was on the ball in every situation. She was always available to answer questions and always getting things done in a prompt professional manner. Her marketing was top notch and kept our house showing during a normally slow time. She is an incredible agent. She is organized, efficient and professional. She truly cares about her clients and really became like family. We would recommend her to anyone and will not buy or sell another home without her."

Chuck and Linda R. - First Time Buyers

"There is not enough room to document all the positive aspects of our experience. A better question would be to look at what negative aspects stood out...easy answer...NONE! Sonia is so professional and thorough. She really goes out of her way to ensure satisfaction of her clients. She has the highest standards for how service should be delivered and we cannot ever imagine working with someone else."

Matt and Kelle S. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Sonia is truly a class act! She is by far the most professional agent we have ever dealt with. She kept us informed from beginning to end. She is about as perfect as perfect can be and is the best agent, hands down! She is very impressive and we have given her name to numerous friends!"

Marty S. - Relocation Buyer

"Upon talking with the the relocation department, Sonia was given to me as my perfect match. She couldn't have been better. She is the most generous, tireless and kind agent I've ever known and she's now a dear friend. She is one super human being and Realtor. She couldn't have done more. She's a real A+++."

Brian and Sarah L. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Thanks so much for everything you have done for us through this house buying/selling process. You have been the perfect agent for us. We are thankful for Kate's referral! Thanks again for absolutely everything!"

Nate and Katey M. - Sellers

"Sonia was excellent in every way! She is absolutely wonderful. We will use her services whenever we buy or sell a house. We will highly recommend her to everyone we know!"

Steve and Lori M. - First Time Buyers

"We would recommend Sonia to anyone wanting to buy their dream home. Her excellent customer service and personal touches made ours a very smooth transaction and an enjoyable experience. The follow up after the sale has been very consistent as Sonia drops by or emails just to check up on things and we appreciate that. Sonia doesn't just sell houses, she truly cares!"

Rick and Maura C. - Sellers Relocating Out of State

"We couldn't ask for more! The marketing was beautiful and effective. Sonia really cared about how we felt during the process and made it clear that selling our house was important to her. We will refer her to everyone we know. She is absolutely the best!"

Patrick and Laurie E. - Sellers and Move-Up Buyers

"Thank you so much for helping us to sell our old house and buy our dream home!  We are fortunate to have a wonderful person like you on our side and we are appreciative of all that you did.  You have a true passion for what you do and it shows in all that you did to help us!  We love you!"

Brian S. - Seller

"Sonia is aggressive, insanely fair, overly ethical (a good thing!) and relentless in ensuring client delight! These qualities encompass Sonia. You will not find a more talented and dedicated partner when it comes to buying/selling residential property in the crazy Denver Metro area."

David and Katie H. - Buyers

"Sonia was so easy to work with!  She listened astutely to our needs and desires and worked tirelessly with flawless communication to get us what we wanted.  We are completely happy with her work and would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a Realtor to fight for them and help them find the house of their dreams for they budget they have.  Thank you Sonia!' 

Dan and Cheryl L. - Sellers Relocating to Europe

"You are truly someone special, Sonia. Thank you again for everything you did for us. I seriously don't know what we would have done without you. You handled the challenges like a pro. We're so very happy that you were a part of our journey."
