She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience having a background in property management services,” shares Andrea Gallagher, Davidson Realty Sales, and Training Manager. “Transitioning into a full-service real estate advisor helping customers buy, sell or rent seems only fitting and natural for her skill set and abilities.” 

 

For Shauna, Davidson Realty was the perfect fit. “I had an immediate connection with Sherry Davidson and the rest of the team. I felt led to join the brokerage as we share the same passions and core values. I am excited to share my passion for this area and help others find their dream homes,” shares Shauna. Shauna looks forward to continuing to serve her community as a member of the Davidson Realty family. 

 

In her spare time, Shauna loves spending time with her family and friends.
