What do Clients Say?

Shane was very quick to get our needs met as we needed to sell the property as soon as possible. We felt he was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us several comps to determine a price point that would sell our property quickly. He guided us through a couple of negotiations and gave us advice that led to a fair settlement. Our home sold in less than a week and we would recommend Shane to any friends or family that needed real estate services.


Shane was extremely helpful in our home search and buying process. My familay and I had been through some horrors in the pass and that took a mental and physical toll on us. That said, i was very fearful of what this experience would be like this time around, but those fears quickly faded away. Shane was patient, knowledgeable, and assertive throughout the whole process. He listen to our concerns, answered our questions and took every opportunity to give us valuable advice during our search. I felt as if i was hanging out with a "buddy" looking at houses versus dealing with a real estate sales agent. All that said, we were able to find a home that met all of the criteria we were looking for on the first weekend of looking at houses. We were also able to close and move into our new home in less that 45 days. My family and i were fortunate to have found Shane when we did and i wish others the same fortune. I fully endorse Shane on the count of his knowledge, expertise, attention to detail, responsiveness and simply getting the job done.


Shane and the Torres Team were fantastic to work with. We had had our house on the market previously and were very impressed with how much smoother the process went with Shane. Our house was on the market and had a sign in the yard on day 1 (4 hours after making first contact with Shane). Shane has positioned himself to generate a ton of exposure on the MLS system. We had at least 1 showing per day for the first 9 days, and had a positive offer within 7 days. The offer came in quite a bit lower than our list price and the buyers were financially unable to come up in their offer. Through negotiations we ended up only $1000 under our list price. This was due to Shane's negotiating and not offering closing or warranty, which is all but standard these days. In the end our house was sold in less than 3 weeks!!! Shane and his partner Stephanie were great to work with, available all times of the day or night and quick to get answers and reply. I think most importantly their demeanor took a lot of stress out of the process.


I chose to work with Shane Torres due to the fact that he's an honest & very knowledgeable Realtor. It took a very long time for me to finally decide what I was looking for & the one thing I respected the most was Shanes patience. After several months of searching I have found what i'm looking for & Shane did everything he could to get the best deal for me. I see Shane as a top Realtor in the real estate industry & defiantly knows what he is doing!! If your in the market for someone honest, reliable, & knowledgeable you should defiantly give this Realtor a call!


Shane was recommended to us by a friend and we couldn't have been happier with the service he provided. Having never purchased a home we did not know a great deal about the process. Shane was great at guiding us through the process and making us feel comfortable during each step. Shane was very responsive to our questions and very flexible with his schedule. Day and night he was available via phone, email, or text and always got back to us in short order.His background as a contractor was invaluable as he was able to answer any questions about potential issues and give us a good idea as to what work would be involved to give any potential home our own touch. He even went as far as to draw out quick plans and get estimates for the work.I would highly recommend Shane to any potential buyer or seller. I know when it's time to look for our next home he will be our first call.


About Shane

Shane began his career in the construction industry after receiving his degree in Carpentry and Business Trade. He took night classes to earn an Associate Degree in Computer Aided Drafting, with an emphasis in Architectural drafting. After a few years building homes, he decided to obtain his real estate license in early 2009. Shane knew he wanted to be under the RE/MAX balloon, and decided on RE/MAX Concepts. As his business began to flourish, he opened an office in Polk City and began adding office staff. Shane built a strong business over the years and also saw an opportunity to become a mentor to other agents. He accepted the offer to become a Broker/Owner with RE/MAX Concepts in 2013, and he became a principal owner of RE/MAX Concepts in September 2016.


Shane currently resides in Polk City with his wife and three kids where he is involved with various, local organizations.
