Shira David Stern

Residential Sales Specialist 

When it comes to being a real estate professional, there are three things of utmost importance to Shira David Stern, ’Commitment, Passion and Integrity’.

Her sales background taught Shira excellent negotiation skills and business acumen, whilst her experience in customer service has taught her the value of satisfying clients’ needs.

Shira specialises in delivering her clients the highest possible results and always providing outstanding customer service with informed, honest advice about their property. She understands that overseeing the sale of a property means handling a pivotal transaction and this is a responsibility that she doesn’t take lightly. She thoroughly enjoys the fast paced and challenging environment that real estate provides.

She has an innate insight into what people are searching for and she most enjoys meeting potential sellers and buyers while helping them on their way to finding their dream property and at the same time being both helpful and flexible to their needs.

Her commitment to her work and her contagious enthusiasm for real estate guarantees Shira will go the extra mile for her clients.

Testimonials

  • Thank you so much for helping us with the purchase of our unit on Coral Coast Drive. We are grateful for your patience during the negotiations with the vendor and for your persistence and problem solving skills in working towards a win/win/win situation for all parties concerned. Throughout our journey you have been positive and supportive and have always taken the time to answer our questions and explain the process to us. We are also grateful to you for putting us in touch with a network of professionals including Astute Finance and NQ Mobile Law Service who have been fantastic to deal with and have helped make the whole process as stress free as possible. No doubt we will see you around Palm Cove and the Coral Coast Resort area in particular, and we wish you all the very best for the future. Be assured we will happily refer your services to any of our friends who may be looking to buy a property in this area.

    Bob and Judith Cook

  • We were very happy with Shira from Elite. She was both friendly and professional, she explained every step in the selling process before we listed and again throughout the sale. Shira was very open to listening to us and taking our suggestions and ideas on board and wasn’t at all pushy when it came to setting the price or negotiating the sale. We found her to be very extremely hardworking and she definitely put in 100% effort to sell our property. We would be very keen to list with Shira again in the future and recommend her to anyone looking at selling their property.

    Rhiannon Richardson

  • Shira has restored my faith in Real Estate agents. She actually did what the other agents just promised to do. My apartment was one of many for sale in the same block and although the competition was strong Shira, through sheer hard work and tenacity, managed to get me a multiple offer situation with 3 potential buyers ensuring that I got the highest possible price and in just 4 weeks. Before Shira took on my property it had been with another agency for well over a year. Shira had brought through more potential buyers in a month than the last agency had brought through in a year. She was always available to answer questions and provide me with feedback on how each inspection had gone. Shira followed up with any potential purchasers and in the case of our buyer not just until they had signed a contract but throughout our extended settlement period. I can highly recommend Shira and will definitely use her again in any future property sales I have.

  • "I would definitely recommend Shira! This was not my first selling of a home but was the first time I really felt the agent knew her business. She came to initial meeting with very helpful information and explained her process in a way that definitely showed her expertise in real estate. Friendly, reliable, genuine and professional are all part of Shira's service. Thanks for helping me sell our house!"

  • Shira is a unique agent in the Cairns region. After dealing with various agents in the area that promise a great deal and deliver next to nothing, I gave Shira a chance after seeing her great sales figures online. Shira provided the service, communication and respect to the owner that I had not seen before. Apart from getting a great price for my apartment, Shira did not once compromise her stance on the value she felt she could achieve on the sale. Instead of trying to get a quick sale, Shira tried different marketing tactics and worked tirelessly which eventually paid off. I would have no hesitation in entrusting another property with Elite Real Estate and Shira.

  • Having recently dealt with Shira we could not speak more highly of her. She is a passionate, informed and professional agent who made the purchase of our first investment property stress free. Being quite unfamiliar to the buying process and Queensland property procedures Shira was instrumental in guiding us through to settlement. We have been looking at buying in Palm Cove for 20+ years, and are absolutely stocked with the purchase of our dream property, which we probably wouldn't have gone through with had Shira not been the agent.
