Shelli Livingston

Owner, Transaction Coordinator

Shelli Livingston is the coordinator that any realtor would love to have on their team. She always strives to provide the best experience for her realtor partners, so that they can provide outstanding service to their clients.

With a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin, Shelli began her career with the Department of Family and Protective Services. She quickly advanced to be a Supervisor, leading a Conservatorship team that juggled dozens of complex legal cases for children in the protective custody of the State. Learning to defend her department’s positions in the courtroom, and managing a team of case workers was an amazing learning experience.

As for real estate, it’s kind of in her blood. Her mother has been a successful realtor and broker for over 20 years. And after personally buying and selling 6 times, and being a landlord since 2008, she became more and more interested in real estate. After starting her family, Shelli decided to leave her full-time social work career to become a full-time mom to her four amazing kids. Never one to sit still, she began assisting realtors as a part-time transaction coordinator in 2011.

Since that time she has assisted on over 200 transactions from land sales and new home construction, to first time buyers and leases, and everything in between. Her professional background, flexible schedule, and attention to detail have allowed her to offer a high level of service to her realtor partners.
