I strive to do the best for all my clients and my 40+ years of experience helps me do just that - even in the most unusual circumstances. I consider my clients' satisfaction to be my greatest reward, and take pride in my high volume of repeat business and referrals. Below are just some of the reviews I have received over the years.
Thank you so much for selling my home. I'd recommend you in the highest regards to anyone wanting the job done quick and with no fuss. You are personable and easy to deal with and have a great sense of humour, too. If you want the best, she's the one!
Shirley is absolutely a delight to deal with. We love her no nonsense attitude, tell it like it is, and she gets the job done and quick. We appreciate her system that she uses as able to sell quickly in this tough market. If you want the job done right, use Shirley!

Choosing Shirley to be our broker was the best thing we did for ourselves. Shirley was everything we hoped for in a real estate agent - knowledgeable, reactive, supportive, etc. She made our transaction very easy on us, and she made sure that we covered all our bases so we would get the best deal with no problems. She also was very helpful with information of nearby services we could use, good contractors in the area, and her knowledge of the Sundre area is bar-none. We would use Shirley again for any and all real estate dealings we have in the future, and would strongly recommend her to our friends (and anyone reading this review!).

A big thank you to Shirley McDonald for finally selling our home! We tried on our own and couldn't sell then asked Shirley for her help. She knew it was going to be a difficult sell but she did it! Thank you!

My sister and I were faced with the task of selling my late Father's property. We hired Shirley McDonald as I had used Shirley for my condo sale two year previous (which sold in a week). Shirley's professionalism, knowledge, hard work ethic and honesty are much respected and appreciated. It was hectic and sometimes traumatic to get the home ready to sell and we were able to lean on Shirley during this transition. Shirley brought in a professional photographer to showcase the home online and in pamphlet form. Her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home is evident in how our listing looked - which knocked out the competition. Shirley negotiated an offer over the listing price on the home and made sure we were accepting the proper offer. Our Father's home sold in 4 days, unconditionally. I highly recommend Shirley McDonald for all of your real estate needs.
In a world where the question is frequently being raised 'What are realtor's doing anymore to earn their commision?' you leave no doubt. Your hard work, excellent communication and honesty earned every penny of your commision! We would whole-heartedly recommend you to anyone we know who is searching for a realtor. We especially appreciated your clear and concise evaluation of our property. Presenting the initial research that led to the evaluation's conclusion really helped us realize what a fair price for our house was. Your communication with us at every step was honest, pleasant and to the point. In a world of realtors who seem to dissapear after they have secured a listing, your follow ups were refreshing and reassuring. Lastly, you are one of the hardest, most dedicated workers we've ever met. We truly felt that you were working as hard as we were to sell our property, and that's rare nowadays!
When it comes to realtors I personally feel that Shirley is one of Central AB's finest. Shirley is the reason I am able to sit here and type this in my very own home. As a first time home owner I was cautious as to whom to use as a realtor. Shirley soon put my concerns to rest. She was very knowledgeable and thorough when it came to my purchase of my new home. From start to finish Shirley aims to please. She gave me some very helpful hints and was very resourceful. She also gave me awesome information concerning all aspects of what to look for in a home, I truly believe that Shirley took great care of me. This is just one of the many reasons that I will be considering Shirley in future purchases.
I am writing to tell say how pleased I am for the way Shirley handled the sale of my property at Riverside RV Park. She had extensive knowledge of the park and its hisotry. It made things very easy for me. She was available to answer my questions, she addressed and handled the issues and she handled all the aspects of the transaction with the professionalism and expertise. Throughout this process you were vey sensitive to my needs and provided good advice. I recommend your services. Thank you for selling my property so quickly and efficiently.
Quick, efficient and pleasant. Shirley's marketing system is excellent. You can be sure if we are ever in need of real estate service again we will call on her. We are telling everyone of our pleasant and profitable experience dealing with you.

Shirley McDonald is an excellent realty gem. She worked well with customers. Very articulate in explaining all parts of contract. Maintained contact with us as sellers and buyers. After a short aquaintance she understood what would be suitable for us. Shirley is a digger and a 'go getter'. She even likes dogs! Our rating for Shirley is 12 out of 10.
~ Greg & Joyce
We have no hesitation in putting Shirley's name forward to anyone, especially if they are buying a business and even more so if they are hoping to come over and set up home around here, like we did from England.

Shirley helped us find our perfect home. She demonstrated how diligant a realtor should be. Shirley acted on her instincts in many of the homes we viewed because she knew what we were interested in and made sure we had all the information to make the important decision. Shirley made sure we were informed of all legalities and procedures to follow & closed the deal.
I wanted a realtor who was tenacious and who would work my property. I was given Shirley's name and I can say that if you want a realtor who will give you guidance but not do your thinking for you, who will be honest and truthful and yet still see the 'whole picture', who will give you feedback, good or bad, than I would recommend that you use Shirley.
Highly recommend this lady! She truly goes above and beyond for her clients! Shirley McDonald's 40+ years in Real Estate has unquestionably served us well.
Shirley McDonald is very professional and an awesome lady that works tirelessly hard for her clients! Cannot say enough praise for her work ethic.
~ Grace W.
You are a wonderful lady with lots of passion for what you do. I will definitely pass on your name and number for anyone I know or meet who is looking for their home.
Just a note to say...how much we are pleased to celebrate our fourth anniversary of receiving the key to our home... It was four years ago today. Thanks so much for your part in making this happen.
~ Bill & Judy
