When you walk into the front door at Roger Fazendin Realtors, a cheerful voice and smile greet you! They belong to Shelly Dressel. Shelly joined Fazendin 4 ½ years ago and has been such a great member of the team.
Her title is Administrative Office Support, but she does so many things. One of her roles is front desk receptionist and scheduling showings for the listings. If you ask her what her job is she will tell you that she markets and maintains MLS listings. Some agents like to affectionately call her our “MLS Concierge”. She does anything and everything when putting a listing on MLS. The favorite part of her job is interacting with the agents and the service that she provides. She will tell you it’s such a happy, comfortable place to be every day. She enjoys helping agents achieve their goals and is always impressed with the genuineness, care and empathy each agent has for their clients. She is happy to support the agents, so they can support their clients. She loves the details and the processes of her position.
Prior to working at Fazendin, she worked at a different real estate company and prior to that she was a Deli/Produce Manager. She enjoyed that position too as she loved her customers and was kept very busy. She would cook, clean, serve, supervise, mentor, do bookkeeping and more! This is where she met her husband, another good reason to work there.
Shelly has been with her husband Doug since 1998. She has four adult children, 1 grandson and another grandbaby on the way! Her children are most important to her and she built her life around them, their happiness and well being. It’s fun to see them all living and thriving and she is super proud of all of them. She is looking forward to more grandchildren!
For fun, she loves keeping active by walking, canoeing and camping in the summer and reading in the winter. She truly loves spending time with her husband – they enjoy one another’s company.
We laugh around the office because Shelly seems to have a wealth of different experiences – we always say “ask Shelly, she’s probably done it.” She will just say she is fortunate enough to have had a lot of experiences. She is not afraid to try new things and she’s always had a keen ability to see how things are put together. She is the youngest of five in her family – she thinks that made her strong, independent and a fighter to succeed. She has lived all over the metro area St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Crystal, Maple Plain and Delano. She loves living in Delano – it’s a great place to raise a family, it’s a big enough community, but not too big.
While family is a priority for her, she feels she’s found a good fit with Fazendin. It’s like a work family, the atmosphere almost crosses co-worker barriers, but in a good way! Everyone at Roger Fazendin Realtors is thankful to have Shelly Dressel on the team offering her special staff support day after day after day!
