Shelby graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2012, served in the Army for 6 years, and got out as a Captain in the beginning of 2018 to dive into Real Estate full time as both a broker & investor.

Following her first year as a broker, Shelby was recognized as the Keller Williams Rookie of the Year for the “Carolinas Region” (all of North & South Carolina) and began to expand, creating her own team of real estate professionals. Five Pillars Realty Group became official in 2019 and specializes in helping military and investors nationwide meet their goals. “Pints & Properties,” their Real Estate Investors meetup, is booming & continuing to grow rapidly.

While building the team, Shelby was constantly working to grow her rental property portfolio. Since purchasing her first intentional rental property in November 2017, she now owns 51 units, purchased using several different strategies and comprised of a little bit of everything: single-families, residential multi-family, commercial multi-family, and short-term rentals… plus a bit of Airbnb arbitrage.

What’s next? Continuing to invest (duh), expansion of the Five Pillars Realty Group to Charlotte, NC and rolling out our Consulting business, to train Real Estate Agents on how to work with investors.
