Enthusiastic, positive and approachable are words that people commonly use to describe Shelton Wilder. A veteran entrepreneur with many years of experience serving the needs of affluent clientele, Shelton has a talent for negotiating and marketing, as well as a complex understanding of real estate and customer service.
Shelton specializes in residential and commercial real estate in Malibu, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and Pacific Palisades, though she is always willing to travel to the areas where her clients have interests. With exceptional networking and research skills, she excels at finding hidden, ‘off-market’ listings and matching her buyers with the perfect home and lifestyle to fit their needs.
Providing her clients with a positive experience and a hassle-free transaction is everything to Shelton. She constantly researches every detail, maintains open, honest communications and collaborates with her vast network of colleagues to deliver outstanding results—time after time. To educate and inform her clients about the transaction process and the latest updates in real estate, Shelton produces two interactive videos each week, viewable on her Instagram account.
Drawing from her creative eye for design, years of real-world experience, and degree in Marketing from the University of Georgia, Shelton helps her sellers maximize their home’s aesthetic value. Having worked in sales for most of her career, which began at the age of 16, she is a skilled problem solver with a proven track record of success helping investors, developers and sellers of estate properties.
Shelton’s diverse professional background includes an appearance on Million Dollar Listing, as well as several TV pilots, a year of Improv and stand-up comedy. Her calm and inviting exterior belies a highly motivated individual with astute business sense, who successfully established a number of successful fashion-oriented businesses, one of which was featured on Shark Tank.
Recognizing that having a proven, effective team on your side is the key to delivering great client service, Shelton partnered with Douglas Elliman Real Estate, a market-leading brokerage with annual sales in excess of $22 billion. This allows her to pass on to her clients the benefits of the company’s advanced technology, agent support systems and expansive marketing presence, which includes a strategic alliance with Knight Frank Residential, a London-based firm that operates in luxury markets spanning 60 countries and six continents.
Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Shelton has a gracious air about her and an infectious smile that clients appreciate. A resident of Los Angeles since 2006, she enjoys sharing her knowledge of local schools, neighborhoods and subdivisions. Shelton enjoys spending time with her two sons and her husband when she isn’t busy helping her clients. Dining out with friends and volunteering at her son’s preschool, First Presbyterian in Santa Monica, are some of her other favorite pastimes.
