“By far the most genuine and exceptional agent we have ever worked with. Having bought and sold numerous properties over the year, we have followed many campaigns and are in complete awe of her energy, integrity, experience and willingness to leave no stone unturned and an absolute pleasure to work with as buyer or vendor.”​
Happy Client
“We trusted the Shelter team to deliver a great result and they didn’t disappoint. From preparing the home, photos, inspections and the negotiation process, they just made it easy. Thanks Shelter.”
Very Happy Client
“We have dealt with many agents for our property portfolio and, Zali and Lidiya are without doubt, in a class of their own. Insightful advice on how to market our property, deep market and buyer understanding, exemplary communication throughout the campaign, and regular feedback on potential buyers. But what really sets Zali and Lidiya apart is their empathy, honesty, authenticity, and passion for their clients and craft. We highly recommend Zali and Lidiya and would engage them in future sales.”
Extremely Happy Client

"At Shelter we believe in the collective consciousness to do good, create positive change and help others to succeed."

For every home sold by Shelter we commit to providing housing for one person, we do this by donating a significant portion of our commissions from each of our real estate sales (at no extra cost to our clients).
