"During 2010, I started to view properties online in the St. George, UT area. In August of 2012, I made the decision to actually start looking for my future home.
Zillow.com, the web site I had been using to search, also provided information on Real Estate Agents. One name that continually popped up was Shane Wood. Not only was his advertising/promotion effective, the reviews (like this one) were consistently positive, even glowing. So, I contacted Shane. We talked for about 30 minutes, during which time he identified the basic requirements I was looking for in a house and the type of community I would be comfortable in.
Two weeks after talking with Shane, I flew to St. George from NE Wisconsin to meet him and start the search in earnest. Shane had set aside two entire days to work with me. Not only did he show me numerous homes that met or exceeded my stated criteria, but he drove me around the entire county, giving me a much better feel for the various communities found in area, recreational and shopping opportunities, restaurants, etc. We quickly narrowed the search down to the Kayenta Desert Community.
I found Shane to have an excellent command of the marketplace, had the right resources at his fingertips (knew all the players), was very knowledgeable when it came to construction processes, and always had my best interests in mind. He was very accommodating and responsive to my many demands, never “pushed” as most salespeople do, but rather provided me with the information I needed to make an informed decision.
After narrowing the search down to the Kayenta Desert Community in western Ivins, I made two additional trips out West looking at properties there, and in October. found the perfect home. Last week, I closed on the transaction and I’m delighted with the entire purchase experience.
During this process, Shane redefined the typical Real Estate Agents job description, at least as far as I’m concerned. Not only did he find me the perfect home and guide me through the entire"

"We knew we were going to move to the area 4 years prior to being able to. We contacted Shane, and he graciously and patiently showed us houses, taking full days on two separate occasions during two separate years, to acquaint us with the neighborhoods and areas. He could not have been more knowledgeable or more interested in our getting the right home--though it would have been easy for him to dismiss us as looky-loos. When the time finally came, he took more of his time and showed an enormous number of houses, helping us understand the merits and drawbacks of different neighborhoods and homes.
Without Shane's help we could have made serious errors; as it was, we ended up with what we think is the perfect house, for us. Throughout, Shane guided us surely and carefully. We knew there would not be anything with a prospective house that we would not know.
If you are thinking of buying anywhere in the area, you cannot do better than Shane. He quite simply is the best I have ever run across in my 13 instances of buying/selling homes across 30 years and half a dozen states. No one comes even close"

"We met Shane through the internet when we requested homes to see in Saint George, UT. Within an hour Shane had responded and he setup our requests. When
we arrived in Saint George Shane had homes for us to see that had met our criteria.
He hit it right on the button. After three days of looking we had come up with three
homes. We put in an offer on our favorite choice and based on Shane's input it was
accepted. Shane helped all the way through escrow which was done while we were back in California preparing for our move to Utah. He setup workmen to complete the items needing repair thru the escrow.
Shane has very high marks from us for integrity, intelligence, professionalism, loyalty and reliability. He never let us down and is still helping us after escrow closed. Shane's drive and determination showed throughout the whole process. We can't thank him enough and would not hesitate recommending Shane."

"When we decided to move to St. George, three family members offered to line us up with their realtors. We decided to go off on our own and picked Shane, based on his reviews here. We are so glad we did.
While browsing the new listings he sent us daily, one home stood out that was exactly what we were looking for. I called Shane and set up an viewing for the next day. We jumped in the car and drove to St George. The home was priced to sell quickly -- one of those if you snooze, you lose deals. We immediately made an offer and nabbed it.
Shane went the extra mile in helping us work through all the headaches of moving, He even bought a chair from the previous owners that our handicapped daughter had fallen in love with. This was our first home purchase in 37 years and Shane took all the hassle out of it. I must have called him 50 times with questions and concerns. He was always ready to talk for as long as I wanted and never seemed in a hurry to get me off the phone.
Six weeks after we moved in, Shane and his family stopped over to see how things were going. Long after our dealings were finished, he was still willing to help with anything we needed.
We definitely made the right choice in hiring Shane as our realtor, We couldn't be happier with our new home, and living in St. George"
"Shane, thank you for being there for us. Shane is the type of realtor you hope you can find when moving to another state. My wife looked at a house on the internet she liked and Shane's photo and bio were there, as well. She called Shane and left a voice mail and five
minutes later he returned our call. We explained our needs and he offered whatever time we needed, even though it was short notice and involved a weekend. We gave Shane a list of houses we found we were interested in and he arranged tours for us. This gave him a good picture of what we were interested in and at the end of the first day, he offered to do some research on sources we didn't have access to, and arranged for tours the next day. By the end of day two we had our top choice and a back up ready for us to make an offer. A bonus to us was Shane's knowledge of the geological make up of the area. With this knowledge he could advise us on the stability of different areas. His overall knowledge of the region was truly beneficial to us as newcomers to the area.
Shane made the purchase process very easy. We also feel he did a great job of getting for us the best deal.
His communication with us, both in St. George, as well as after we returned home, was excellent. He went the extra mile. He was there through the inspection process and right through closing. For us, we first met with Shane on July 25, and our house closed on August 15. Shane was definitely the right man at the right time in the right place for us. We recommend him highly without reservation. He is very attentive and takes care of his clients even when there are challenges. When you are conducting business from another state it is nice to know you have a man of integrity walking every step of the way with you through the home buying process."
"His said he would sell our house in a given time, and in the present economy, he sold it. We had other agents that tried to sell it for years. It did not happen. Then we took our chance with Shane Wood and we were very impressed with his professionalism, honesty, and respect. The house sold before he anticipated, and we would certainly deal with him in the future. Thank you Shane!"

"We live out of state and contacted Shane to list our home. Given the housing market, we had little hope it would sell. Shane's expertise in pricing, advertising and marketing our home resulted in it being sold in less than two weeks! Taken by surprise and wanting to purchase a new home right away, we depended on him to help with the purchase of our new home. We have bought and sold several houses and are truly satisfied with his service. Shane made this whole process easy and painless!"

"Shane is a professional realtor. He takes his work seriously and spends the time necessary to ensure complete client satisfaction. He is not a part time realtor who is in the business to fill in some extra time. He has represented me as buyer and seller on three separate real estate transactions. I recommend Shane to anyone wanting to list or buy a home. You'll be happy you have Shane representing you."
- Wally Duke
"Represented the seller and myself the buyer. I found Shane to be very professional and knowledgeable. He accomplished all that I asked of him. He negotiated to get the price I offered. I think the home is a great value. He even set me up with the builder so that I can get a reduced price on a fridge. I am a senior citizen and Shane treated me with lots of respect."
"I was recently in the market to purchase a home in St. George Utah. I initially wanted to go it alone, thinking I would have more negotiating power in price if I didn't bring a realtor to the tabel with me. As I was searching properties I came across Shane. I discussed with him my needs as well as my strategy. At no time did he try to solicit my business. He did however let me in on some of the things to lookout for when searching for property in St. George. As I continued in my efforts my initial interactions with Shane stuck out to me. I eventually recruited hiim to help me in my efforts. Smartest thing I could have done. Shane and I discussed what my needs and we began our search. It didn't take long to find a home that meet my needs and expectations. I know am the proud owner of a beautiful home in St. George thanks to Shane's help.
It should be noted that I work out of state on the east coast and have limited time to explore and tour homes. Shane helped me weed out homes so my time would be fruitful during my visit to Utah. At the of a hat he would respond to my request exceeding my expectations throughout the entire process.
I appreciate Shane's help, integrity and professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending him."
"Shane went above and beyond to help us find a home. We looked at 80 plus homes. We worked him hard, so hard in fact that my wife and I felt bad. We were starting to wonder if we would find the right home. He would always accommodate our needs and travel plans to look at homes.
Shane learned what we were looking for, he emailed us listing to review and previewed homes to make sure we weren't wasting our time. He met with the builders who built the homes we were looking at to get more details on the construction and any possible issues. If I ever got his voice mail, which was rare, it was only minutes until he called us back.
We put several offers in on homes that were either not accepted or placed in never never land by banks playing games. I wondered if he would give up. Shane even helped us find a vacation rental for our family vacation that we spent in St. George.
We were in Texas when Shane found our home. He talked with us as he went through the home. Shane took video, then posted the video so we could see the home on the internet. We trusted Shane and timing was critical so we wrote an offer from Texas, which Shane hand carried to the bank to meet the deadlines. The bank accepted our offer and the transaction went great. When we finally got to see the home, it was everything Shane had reported it to be.
Make Shane your Realtor and have full confidence that he will give 100% of his talents and abilities to help you find your home. Not only that you just might make a friend as we did.
Jon and Nichole Petty"
"Shane helped me to make a huge and great change in my life by selling my condo for about $90K more than other comps AND for cash AND within about a week. He took care of EVERYTHING as I was out of town for the entire time. He is a very talented real estate pro AND a very good man. In fact, he was so great, I had him sell a second home for me. If I had more properties to sell, I would ONLY use Shane. You will not be disappointed! "
