Stephanie Shellenberger


melissa-dunn-realtorHello! My name is Stephanie Shellenberger and I am a native of Charlottesville. I love my hometown and am proud to call Charlottesville home. My husband and I could not think of a better place to raise our son! I enjoy sharing the many stories and history of this wonderful place we call home.

I started a career in real estate because I have always loved looking at homes, land, decorating and I love helping people. While my family and I have lived in Charlottesville our whole lives, we have lived in many different areas throughout. I know from my own experiences how important it is to have a Realtor whom you can trust and that will respond to your needs. Compassion, trustworthiness, organization and excellent listening are the personal skills and attributes I bring to the table. I also bring many traits from my experience as an Albemarle County educator of 20 plus years and highly value building strong and lasting relationships.

I know how important it is to find the home you love and I will listen and help you find that special place. Put your trust in me and we will make it happen.

A Few of My Favorite Things

  • My Favorite Hobby
    I love sports. My family and I are very competitive so if there is a challenge we will take it and may the best person win! My son is also an avid lacrosse player and I enjoy watching him on the field. I cannot wait to see him play at UVA in two years!
  • My Favorite Holiday
    I truly love Thanksgiving. I promise it is not all about the eating but about being around family and friends. This is the one holiday that my whole family can be together. I wish I was as good a cook as my mom and husband, but I do enjoy eating their delicious food..
  • My Favorite Sports Teams
    This one is a hard one because I could go on and on depending on what sport. We love the Virginia WAHOOS, STEELERS, Phillies, Penguins and we cannot forget the Marshall Thundering Herd.

  • “Stephanie was an amazing agent to work with on the purchase and sale of my houses. She helped me through every step of the process and went above and beyond to make sure nothing fell through the cracks or was missed. She is very organized and detail-oriented so she made going through this life changing event smooth and not stressful. Stephanie is a true professional with everyone she interacts with and has a positive, vibrant, friendly personality. I can honestly say the process of buying and selling was daunting, but with Stephanie helping during the entire process, it went without any issues.” -Kerri White
  • “We asked Stephanie Shellenberger to assist us in finding a house for our grown children to live in. Even though she knew we were looking for something in the “fixer-upper” category and not anything that would bring her a large commission, she treated us with respect and kindness and answered all our questions quickly. I noticed that she treated everyone she came across (the home seller, various house inspectors and everyone in my family) with great friendliness. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor in the Central Virginia area.” -Becky Opitz

Stasia was very professional and friendly during our home buying experience. She helped us find houses to look at that met our requirements and was able to fill us in on information that we were not familiar with as first time home buyers.

Darian was there every step of the way to help us along! Even after we found the right home, Darian helped us through the actual purchase, mortgage application, home inspection, and closing. He always had extremely useful advice, encouragement, and endless knowledge about buying and owning a home.

Melissa is an outstanding real estate agent and a joy to work with. She took the time to understand our needs in a new home, worked tirelessly running down leads, and has stayed upbeat and positive during a difficult search. We not only consider her as our real estate agent, but a friend. Our experience has been so positive that we absolutely plan on working with Melissa in the future.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Amy. Not only is she knowledgeable and responsive, but she is patient and takes the time to explain the process of selling a home and makes you feel comfortable with what can be a very complicated process. Amy truly made the process easy for us and sold our property in a week.
