Testimonials


"In short, you can't find a better real estate agent than Sheila. We have bought & sold four homes with her over the past 15 years and every transaction has been a pleasure. Sheila knows the market like the back of her hand, has a keen understanding of people, and listens carefully, so she is able to make sure you get the right home for you (which is always her ultimate goal). She returns calls in a flash and is always on top of the process to make sure deadlines are met without last-minute stress. She is always calm and focused on making the deal happen. She also only works with the best people and makes great referrals to lenders, contractors, etc. When we were having trouble getting our lender to respond, Sheila referred us to someone who got back to us right away and worked tirelessly to get us the best loan. We just moved into our dream house, which wouldn't have happened without Sheila. The painter she referred us to is one of the best craftsmen we've ever worked with - and our house is spotless when he is done. Aside from her professional prowess, working with Sheila is just plain fun. She is kind and funny and great to spend time with during what can sometimes be a stressful process. We have been approached by countless agents seeking our business and I'm always happy to say, 'Thank you, but we've got a fabulous real estate agent in Sheila Pope. Trust me, you'll be happy, too.'"

"The "S" Team was as professional as you can get. They were fast, thorough and made what is usually a confusing and difficult task - a painless process. They arranged for everything and followed up with whoever we were working with. Will definitely use them again."

"Sheila Pope and her "S-Team", Michelle Sheppard, are very helpful and patient with the complicated process of buying a house and selling ours. Her sensible and reliable understanding assisted us in making the best decisions for us and our needs and wants! She listens with her heart as well as with her knowledgeable experience. She and her Team bring "hand holding" to a very caring and refined level in such a difficult profession. Being a true advocate for her client is a gift that she has truly fine tuned. Whether buyer or selling, Sheila Pope is working for the higher good of all parties concerned. Her success is based on her guidance, caring and understanding that a house is not just a house.....it's a Home!"

"I recently went through the  experience of downsizing my residence and locating a new smaller home in Long Beach.  This was a major event for me both from the complexity of relocation as well as the importance of the financial impact.  I researched several agents in Long Beach giving serious   consideration to experience, professionalism and costs associated with the job I wanted accomplished.  I am very happy I placed rigid requirements on this transaction and did not weaken with offers of special deals and promises.  Sheila Pope and her very competent group marketed my home efficiently and to the appropriate marketplace and without any inconvenience to me.  She negotiated an extremely acceptable sales price and terms which allowed everyone to be very satisfied with the outcome.  A very special thank you to Sheila Pope and her S team."

- Patricia Glowe

"We first met Sheila Pope almost 30 yrs ago when we were trying to buy our first house, not knowing some very important info about the process. The S Team helped us thru a difficult sale - the seller pulled the title back at one point and the selling agency was found to be deficient by the L B Board of Realtors - I don't think we'd have gotten that first house if not for them. So of course we got our next house with them as well."

- Ed and Denise Parleman

"Sheila Pope and the entire S-Team, especially Michelle  Sheppard, did an outstanding job in the process of selling my home!  I have purchased and sold homes previously  with much more difficulty!  The entire team made the process much more enjoyable this time around.  I cannot say enough about   Sheila and her team!  I certainly will not have a problem referring them to other friends for future purchased!  Great job you have my sincerest thanks!"

"Sheila and her team have always been upfront, practical, pragmatic and informative about the buying and selling process. I value their insight and consider them experts in the commercial property/rental field, which is where I have had experience with them. We are lucky to have them in the the neighborhood."

"It is a great pleasure to say a few words on Sheila Pope’s behalf. I have known Sheila for over 18 years both as a friend and as a real-estate agent. Sheila always works extremely hard, cares deeply for projects she’s involved in, pays attention to details, and is interested in her clients and in her business. For example, when I moved into my first home seven years ago, I had to work the day I moved. I could not get time off to manage the move and Sheila and her partner both took on the whole move for me and when I got home that evening they had everything tucked in into my new home and had a pizza ready for me to eat. I will never forget that kindness and her dedication to her profession and to her friend.
  Over the years, I have watched as Sheila manages her business and her friendships with equal dedication. She always finds ways to honor her friends and her clients and because of that, many of her clients are now her friends as well. Sheila hosts special events to honor her clients, manages a monthly newsletter full of tips to live by, contests and new local real estate listings. She is always looking for innovative ways to improve her business and she takes classes, attends conferences and takes seminars. Sheila never misses an opportunity to take care of her friends and to take care of her business. She never tires and is an inspiration to watch and to learn from.
  Sheila is a thoughtful, hardworking, skillful and consummate professional. I could say a million nice things about Sheila, and they would all be true. I count myself lucky to know her. It is without reservation that I recommend Sheila Pope."

"Sheila is a true pro. I would highly recommend her for your real estate needs. Back in 1999, Sheila helped me find and purchase my 1942 duplex. My mom lived in the back unit and I found great tenants who lived in the front unit. Now my mom is at a point where she can no longer live on her own so I decided to sell the duplex. I called Sheila because I trust her and I needed someone who could manage all the details without me being there (I live in San Diego) as well as someone who could make the process easy for my mom. Sheila and her team did an excellent job ensuring my duplex was positioned to sell quickly and for top dollar. It sold in less than a week, the process was seamless and my mom was looked after the whole time."

- Ange Matthews

"2003 Sheila sold a time share I no longer wanted. She helped me look for property many many times. She advised me on issues unrelated to her own listing. She helped me purchase my present residence 2016 and sold my former residence in the same year. She is very loyal and a person who speaks truth. She is also pragmatic and helpful with difficult situations and provides another way to view things which is very helpful."

- Sue Lewis

“I was very satisfied with the work of Sheila Pope and her staff. Everything went smoothly and in a very timely manner. My condo sold immediately upon being listed and closed on the projected date. Everyone presented themselves in a professional manner. Any inquiries I made were responded to promptly and courteously. I would not hesitate to refer to Sheila Pope and Associates.”

“It was my pleasure to have had Sheila Pope's and her S Team associates assist me with the purchase of my Belmont Heights home. Sheila is very professional and responsive and played a major role in getting my Huntington Beach home sold while also getting me and my family into the new Belmont Heights home. If the time comes to sale one one of my homes, I will certainly utilize Sheila Pope.”

- Bernhard Vaaler

“I have had Sheila Pope help me with all of my real estate needs for over ten years. She listed and sold my home in 2002 in Tustin Ranch in a matter of three weeks. At the same time, she helped me find and buy a home in Long Beach. She was equally skilled as both a listing and a selling agent. I have learned to trust her vast knowledge of the market and her ability to listen to my needs and work tirelessly to fully meet them. When I recently decided to retire and sell my home to move to another city, I called Sheila because I knew that she would look out for my best interests. I had her list my home in Long Beach and took her advice about pricing and selling the home in this market. She put together a beautiful video of my home and used other technology methods which helped generate a full price offer in four days. She then, as always, followed up on every single detail through escrow to ensure a stress free transaction. 

I trust Sheila Pope to listen to my needs, provide me with guidance to help me meet my needs, and to work tirelessly throughout the process. I would enthusiastically recommend her, without reservation, to any buyer or selling in Southern California.”

“The S Team was very responsive and sensitive to our needs as clients. We have purchased 2 homes and sold 1 home with them. We appreciated all the personal attention we received. They were highly recommended to us by a family member who also bought a house with them. We would recommend them to others.”

- Andrew and Jody Oshrin

“My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with The S Team many times. Through the years they have helped us buy our current home, sell our previous home and keep us informed as to the current trends in market values and loan rates. It's their ability to determine the needs and wants of the client and to meet those needs that make them easy to work with.”
