There are plenty of impressive numbers to characterize Helen Shiner’s real estate career. A successful real estate broker for 10 + years, a top producer in the South Shore and countless transactions. For Helen, the dedication that drives her real estate career is not in the numbers, it is in the relationships she builds with clients and colleagues.

Helen’s love of connecting with and helping others is what makes her an effective and successful broker. The web of relationships Helen has created over the years are an invaluable resource for her clients benefit. Do not be surprised if Helen already has a buyer in mind for your listing, is the first with a lead on a great property or has just the fix for a daunting problem that arises.

Relationships are also the reason Helen has been driven to build a wealth of knowledge and experience in real estate, and the reason she picks up her phone or answers an email at all hours (just ask her family!).
