About Shallon Santiago
DESCRIBE YOUR JOURNEY TO REAL ESTATE.
I have always been interested in home design and architecture. In college I briefly studied interior design before received my bachelors from California State University, East Bay in Business with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship, Corporate Management and Marketing. After the birth of my son I became a stay at home mom so I could focus on raising and caring for him. Now that he is old enough to go to school it's time for me to pursuit my professional dreams.
WHAT ARE THREE WORDS YOUR CLIENTS WOULD USE TO DESCRIBE YOU?
WHAT MOST EXCITES YOU ABOUT YOUR WORK?
Growing up I always valued owning a home, having a place to call your very own. I'm excited to give that to my clients. From first time home buyers to property investors I will treat each of my clients with the same excitement and enthusiasm
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU WHEN YOU'RE NOT WORKING?
When I'm not working you can find me at a local park chasing my two young children. I was a stay at home mom for 5 years so I really value my time with my family. We like to go to the park, go on bike rides down to the shore line or just go out to grab some ice cream.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT YOURSELF?
My husband and I bought our home in 2015. Buying a home can be very stressful. Going through it myself, in a very complicated transaction, I learned how an agent can really help direct the transaction to make it smoother and less stressful for the buyer. My first clients were my long time best friends and my goal is to treat all my clients like they were my best friends. I will not only be your agent but also your trusted friend.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
In my spare time I like to exercise. I love to do spin cycle classes. I also teach spin classes. I love the feel of my heart rate rising and my legs flying. I enjoy moving to the beat of the music and encouraging others to push themselves past their limits.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ROOM IN THE HOUSE?
The dining room. Our dining room is where we eat all our meals as a family. Our dining room is also where my kids make elaborate works of art to display around our home.
What IS ONE OF YOUR DREAM VACATIONS?
My dream vacation would be somewhere on a warm tropical beach watching the waves go in and out while relaxing on a hammock.
