Simon is PHENOMENAL!!!!! He sold our property in 4 weeks for the listing price. He's not your average, "stick the sign in the yard and hope it sells" type of realtor. He arranged for a professional photographer, made suggestions on staging our home to maximize its features and provided realistic information on current market conditions which allowed us to make informed decisions. He is a TRUE professional.....I wouldn't use anyone else!!!

We could not be more pleased with the way Simon handled our sale and purchase. We found our new home via Simon's social media. We fell in love with it immediatly by his professional and accurate pictures of the home and couldnt wait to go see it. We knew that he would take just as great of care on the sale of our current home. We were listed and closed on both properties in a timely manner. He was excellent in handling the transacation as well as keeping us calm during a stressful time. We would gladly reccomend Simon to our friends, family and neighbors! Less ... More

Simon is better than any real estate agent I have ever met. He came to our house and help guide us to stage our house for the best possible apperance in showings. The pictures he had taken were done by a pro and helped us get an astounding amount of showings, needless to say, our house sold in less than a month. Simon is tech savy and all of our paperwork was done electronically and therefore everything was quick and hasel-free. We also recieved a weekly report showing us how many people had viewed our home online. Simon is a marketing genius. Simon is also very skilled at negotiating and helping in the purchasing process. We had a very complicated deal that involved banks, attorneys, & alot of title work. Simon was very knowledgeable and we ended up getting the deal of the century on our new home. Simon also did a great job helping us get paperwork to the lender quickly and we closed in 3 weeks. Less ... More

My wife and I are getting transfered to the OKC area due to my job. We knew no one there and had no understanding of areas to search for homes there. From our first conversation with Simon we knew we had someone with a great understanding and someone that we felt that we could trust with our first home purchase. When we came in for our weekend search he had plenty of homes lined up for us and after only 2 days we were able to find the home that met all of our needs. Now leaving this experience we not only have a new home but also walked away with a friend with him and his family. I highly recommend Simon for any of your real estate needs! If we ever decide to sell he will definitely be our listing agent. Less ... More

I've lived all over the eastern half of the country so needless to say I've worked with many real estate folks. I think Simon and his team were the best I've worked with. They were QUICK TO RESPOND!!!!!. That is so important to me. So we were very pleased with our home sale and the primary reason was Simon Shingleton.

We relocated to Oklahoma City recently. We wanted to purchase a house before our move to avoid moving twice. In order to do so, I had to first find a real estate agent that we can trust. I wrote a letter with a few questions that were most relevant to me to the 3 top-rated realtors on Zillow. Simon was the first one to reply and with the most detailed answers. Therefore, we chose him as our realtor and we are happy that we made the right decision. I don?t want to say how great Simon is. I am just going to list a few things and you can draw your own conclusions. 1) After I contacted Simon, he promptly sent me a personalized website with the houses that fit our requirement. I looked through the houses and gave him a list of houses that we like. He didn?t just show the houses on the list. In stead, he gave me his honest opinions, discussed with me and told me which houses that he didn?t think are good choices and which house that I should have added to the list. 2) When he showed my husband the houses, he answered all my husband?s questions in detail and kept asking him whether he has more questions. 3) The house that we finally bought wasn?t on his list as it was above the price range that I told him. However, when I sent the information of the house to Simon, he was able to arrange the showing the next day. When we put the offer for the house, there was another potential buyer. Simon negotiated with the seller?s agent until 11 PM at night and texted me the positive outcome once our offer was accepted. 4) All the people that Simon recommended-Spencer (the home inspector), Gregg (the loan officer), Lisa and Dona (the title company) are great. The transaction was very smooth especially considering I wasn?t even in OKC at that time. 5) One of my husband?s colleagues had problem to sell her house. Simon gave her some practical advice. After following Simon?s advice, she sold her house very quickly. 6) We also had a problem in selling our old house. We didn?t have a seller?s agent as we were trying to sell to our colleague. However, our colleague made some last minute demands that made us uneasy. We were in a stressed out situation. We texted Simon 10 pm at night. Although it wasn?t his job to help us selling our house, Simon took the time to look through our contract and gave us his professional opinion. However, we didn?t follow his advice and chose to trust our colleague. Our colleague backed off from the contract at the last moment and left us to sell our house from thousands of miles away. We regret for not following his advice right away. In summary, we recommend Simon to any potential home buyer/seller without any reservations. He is kind, honest, considerate and intelligent, and he does his very best to help his clients. Less ... More

Simon Singleton is a true gem of a Realtor. The biggest?and perhaps the most crucial?reason we chose Simon as our Realtor for our recent home purchase was because he is incredibly knowledgeable about the Oklahoma City area. This was important to us since we are new to the area. He shared insightful information about areas which we were considering and was tremendously helpful in determining the neighborhoods we would like. During the entire process, he was professional yet personable, and ultimately responsible for us getting our dream house. Negotiations and communications with the sellers were hugely challenging and frustrating, but Simon?s experience, patience, and persistence paid off. We could not have purchased our house without him. We would highly recommend Simon to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Less ... More

Simon epitomizes customer satisfaction as he is extremely thorough and conscientious of the home buyer?s needs throughout the entire process. Furthermore, he took the time to alleviate any undue stress associated with a home purchase and went above and beyond to ensure the process was as smooth and pain free as possible. I absolutely recommend Simon and will go to him for any future real estate needs in Central Oklahoma.

This is my first home and Simon was able to walk me through the process very easily with his knowledge and great personality. He was able to accomodate times and dates for inspections. Simos was very friendly and was a great realtor. He always answered my questions and made this lifetime experience very enjoyable. He reffered me to a great mortagage lender who was extremely friendly and knowledgeble. Simon also reffered me to his personal inspection workers who came and took the time to explain their detailed report. I requested the sellers to give me an allowence for the backyard to be cleaned but they disagreed. Therefore, Simon took the tresponsibiy to get it done. I was very pleased with Simon and have reffered him to friends who are looking into buying a home. Less ... More

My daughter is about to start school at OU Medical School, and we felt the best way we could help her was to invest in a starter home with her. Because of the family?s work schedules, it was my job to find a house over the course of a long weekend. After reading glowing reviews of his work, I contacted Simon Shingelton and had the great pleasure of working with an excellent realtor and a wonderful human being. My husband and I live in Oregon and knew nothing about OKC, while Simon has lived there all his life. He knows and loves the city. He was able to narrow my scattered ideas into a well-planned itinerary for the four days I would be in OKC. He also recommended hotels and several fabulous restaurants that made my stay more of a working vacation than the drudgery I had anticipated. Simon really listened to me. I never felt that my price range was too low or that my desires were out of reach. Simon always kept my daughter in mind, showing concern for her safety, commute time, and lifestyle. We did bump up our price range a little and found the perfect house in a great neighborhood. Simon handled every aspect of the negotiations with honesty, fairness, and integrity. Because of his experience and impeccable values, I felt very comfortable as I returned to Oregon. He took care of all the arrangements with the inspector, appraiser, and mortgage broker. Our house closed within a month, even with an FHA loan. If there was a bump along the way, I didn?t feel it because Simon took care of it. My daughter burst into tears of joy when she saw the house.

Simon is an excellent realtor, he listed and sold my home with the sense of urgency required. My home sold within the first two days it was listed and even with the unplanned setback of a serious hailstorm he was able to get it closed in a timely manner. I will be recommending him to everyone that I know whether they are selling or buying a home.

Simon was a fantastic realtor. He was very professional from the first meeting all the way through closing. He has a great advertising presence online which was crucial and provides professional photos for online tours. He also seemed well connected with other realtors and even our appraiser as he has been working a long time in this community. He did an open house and always placed ample printouts in front of our house. He showed our house a lot when other houses in our neighborhood were being shown maybe a third of the amount ours was. We felt very comfortable working with him. He was very willing to work around our schedule (we have 2 kids!) and was understanding when we had to change plans. He had great ideas for staging our house which enhanced each showing. He is often busy, which was evidence he did a good job and his other commitments never seemed to interfere with the priority of selling of our house. The ones who recommended him to us said he was probably the best realtor in the city--so he comes highly recommended. We would certainly agree with this recommendation. Realtors can obviously be expensive, but his services are well worth the costs. Even as we moved out, he brought us dinner knowing we had nothing and no way to cook. He goes above and beyond to get the job done and make the experience as easy and stressless as possible. I would not go with another realtor! Less ... More

I chose Simon for a reason! I've known Simon for over 15 years now and knew that he was an honest and reliable person and that carried over into his business. Our process was quick, painless and one that made home buying a fun experience! He quickly tailored our wish list and after only a few showings had the PERFECT house in mind. His attention to detail is unlike any other. He has clients for LIFE!

Simon Shingleton is a real estate rock star. My husband and I trust his expertise and appreciate his guidance when it comes to the market in our area. We have been working with Simon for over a year now and we will continue to use his services as we invest in income properties or have other real estate needs. I would also like to mention that after recommending Simon to my parents he sold their home in ONE day and helped them get into their dream home the next.

Simon's fresh and modern approach to real estate is what attracted us to him to sell our home. Simon helped sell our home in an area that was new to him. He did the research and stayed on top of the market. He is definitely a full service realtor. Simon is easy to get ahold of and very easy to approach. He makes the entire process easy. I would suggest Simon to any person wanting to sell their home. We will definitely use him again.

What makes Simon stand out?!! He does the work! He makes necessary phone calls promptly and responsively. He knows the market and keeps up with the numbers. He makes analytically based suggestions. He offers workable solutions to problems. We've sold 6 personal homes in 4 cities and Simon is the best!!! Our house was vacant (inheritance) and as we live in another city, Simon checked on it often and advised if there were maintenance or care concerns -- usually with an offer to call and arrange service. He knows contracts and the closing process which translates to a completed transaction On Time with No Surprises! Definitely Five Star Service!! Less ... More

Simon is awesome to work with. He is professional, personable, prompt, understanding, and patient. He was quick in getting our house on the market and traffic in the door, and our house sold within 13 days with two offers on the table! Throughout the whole process of showing us houses, he worked with our crazy schedule and really had a good sense of what we were looking for, and went above and beyond to find us the perfect house. His experience offers great insight. He has made himself availabe to us with quick response to our many questions via phone calls, text, or email.

Working with Simon was an absolute delight. My husband and I were in a unique situation as we moved out-of-state to start a new job before putting our house on the market. We originally used a different realtor and had very little activity at the house; we only had a handful of showings in 3 months and no offers. At this point, we contacted Simon and he took over the management of our house. He attentively listened to our concerns about selling a home from 700 miles away and did a wonderful job marketing our house. Simon has a great deal of knowledge about the neighborhood and an appreciation for its unique, historic charm. The fact that we had an offer within 48 hours of placing the listing on MLS with Simon is a testament to his hard work and incredible marketing talent and expertise. We highly recommend Simon to sell your home and have no doubt he will also be able to find the perfect house for potential buyers. Less ... More

Simon's professionalism exceeded our expectations! Our transaction process was less than a 3 week period, from the time we began searching for a home to purchase and the actual closing date. It was Simon's attention to the many details pertaining to the transaction that allowed a smooth and seamless approach toward closing. Of our many real estate experiences in the past, we now know we don't want to head into any real estate transaction without the representation of Simon Shingleton! Less ... More

He stayed in close communication with us during the entire process and truly went 'the extra mile' to help us get settled. He paid close attention to the details that were important to us and was very attentive to our specific requirements for our new home.
