Shelby graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2012, served in the Army for 6 years and got out as a Captain in the beginning of 2018 to dive into Real Estate full time as both a broker & investor in Fayetteville, NC.

Following her first year as a broker, Shelby was recognized as the Keller Williams Rookie of the Year for the “Carolinas Region” (all of North & South Carolina) and began to expand, creating her own team of real estate professionals. Five Pillars Realty Group became official in 2019 and expanded to Charlotte, NC in 2020. Both Fayetteville & Charlotte offices specialize in helping military and investors nationwide meet their goals. “Pints & Properties,” their Real Estate Investors meetup, is booming & continuing to grow rapidly.

Meanwhile, Shelby was relentless in growing her rental property portfolio. Since purchasing her first intentional rental property in November 2017, she now owns 74 units, acquired using several different strategies and comprised of a little bit of everything: single-families, residential multi-family, commercial multi-family and short-term rentals… plus a bit of airbnb arbitrage.

Between CEO duties and continuing to invest, Shelby operates “Pillars Consulting” – a company designed to transform Real Estate Brokers into their full potential -- and “Life & Lens Photography” -- a company designed to showcase Multi-Family Syndication projects and help investors raise private capital.
