Learn more about Shirley

Shirley WiseShirley Wise’s joy has always been in making a difference and helping others—through her church work and through her profession. After graduating with a degree in Social Work in Sydney, Australia, her talent for dealing with people and making impossible situations seamlessly possible came to light. Her natural flair for sales led her to the world of real estate.

In 2003, she moved to Florida with her family and brought her sales expertise into buying and selling businesses and houses. It was her desire to help people in a more personal and unique way that led her to form Florida Properties Marketing Group, LLC.

As the market took a downturn, Shirley had to go through the process of short selling her own properties, and she and her team began to specialize in the difficult realm of short sales. Her deep, personal understanding of what it feels like to go through losing your home, her way of empathizing with people in difficult situations, and sense of humor have made a difference in hundreds of people’s lives.

During a time when most real estate agents left the profession, Shirley and her team flourished and trained many others in all aspects of active listening, understanding people’s needs, negotiating with difficult banks, the legalities of the foreclosure, and the short sale process. Shirley’s tenacity, commitment, skill, and passion have resulted in short sales which others walked away from. Her concern for the human aspect goes far beyond most people’s expectations.
