Shell Slagle is one of the best real estate professionals that I’ve ever worked with. We chose Shell after interviewing other agents in Dandridge and he was the obvious choice to do business with. He successfully sold the property after we switched from another agency to his Slagle Realty. Shell has the experience and skill to get the job done right with the attention to details. He was always available and answered his phone and was quick to respond to text and emails. If your looking for a professional real estate agent with experience and knowledge, then end your search with Shell Slagle.Bob Mac
