Shelly Dawson, Recognized by as a 2024 Top Agent

Guiding real estate transactions from start to close, Shelly provides clients with the opportunity to optimize their investments, whether they are buying or selling properties.

Shelly is a successful real estate broker and Accredited Staging Professional. She works alongside her daughter, Tara Dawson, leading the Dawson Home Group associated with Compass RE in Nashville, Tennessee. 

“Oftentimes buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.”

She holds several distinguished designations such as Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE), and e-PRO, among others.

Given the diverse nature of the real estate landscape, having the guidance of a trustworthy professional with access to the latest information, like Shelly, is crucial. Understanding that a home represents one of the largest investments that most individuals make in a lifetime, she is dedicated to earning the trust of her clients by providing them with up-to-date and accurate guidance. 

With a strong foundation built on exceptional training and mentorship, Shelly has cultivated a loyal client base that frequently refers friends and family to her services. She is passionate about witnessing the transformation of properties and identifying their full potential, deriving immense satisfaction in assisting her clients in discovering their dream homes.

Over the years, Shelly has received several accolades, including Quality Service Award (2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011), Masters Diamond Award (2006, 2010), Centurion Award (2009, 2011, 2012), Quality Service Pinnacle Award (2009, 2012), and Presidents Award (2009, 2012, 2019).
