About Shanni Payne


Picture of Shanni Payne

I am a second generation Realtor licensed in both North Carolina and Virginia who has been a military spouse for well over a decade. I understand the unique situation military families face with buying, selling, and renting homes. Drawing upon my own experiences has helped me assist my clients with a variety of needs. I believe keeping a prompt open line of communication is paramount to any agent/client relationship I have proven this by successfully assisting multiple military families in “sight-unseen” moves.  

Because my own family moves frequently and we are faced with the decision of buying, selling, and/or renting homes on a regular basis, I opted to enter the real estate field in 2011. Prior to 2011, I worked exclusively in the law enforcement field with expertise as a detective in the Special Investigations Unit. At that time, I continued to work in the field alongside real estate, eventually transitioning exclusively to real estate. In this evolution, I have worked in property management, the foreclosure industry encompassing both commercial and residential units, as well as directly with real estate records such as deeds and titles. I used my own ingenuity and skills, gaining working knowledge and insight in this very complex industry.

Moreover, I understand the features that will sell homes, and I have the ability to match families with the homes they envision for themselves. Please contact me today for a free Competitive Market Analysis and ask me about specials and any military rates! #ShanniSoldit
