Who we are
Shane began her involvement in real estate at a very young age - about 8 years old. Some of her earliest memories are helping her mother, who is also a REALTOR®, blow up balloons for open houses. Her love of real estate (or was it a love of balloons?) blossomed from there.
Fast forward many years. Shane began her career in real estate after purchasing her first rental property. Combining her Marketing / Sales background with her real estate experience, it was only natural that she would continue to expand into residential real estate sales. Today, she specializes in helping clients with their residential sales and purchases in Richmond Metro area.
Outside of real estate you are likely to find Shane out and about in the Fan District with her husband, Gibbs and their two boys, James and Maxwell. Additionally, Shane is involved in many community-based organizations like the Junior League of Richmond, Fan Woman's Club and the Fox PTA.

Hear what our clients say
"Shane is the best realtor that we’ve ever used, without question. Hiring her was like outsourcing all of the unpleasant parts of selling a home to an experienced professional and never having to worry about it again. We were selling our house as part of a complicated relocation process for a new job, and getting anything started seemed like an overwhelming task that we were scared to initiate. Shane was able to sit us down and explain the entire process up front, including a detailed assessment of the idiosyncrasies of our neighborhood, which made us comfortable to proceed (we interviewed several other agents that didn’t understand the Museum District). She made sure that I knew why every step of the process was important, what would come next as we went through it, and patiently answered the rare late email when I panicked over some forgotten piece of information that she’d already shared. When odd issues came up late in the schedule, Shane solved them before anything came close to affecting the closing date. The level of service that she provided was exactly what I want, expect, and frankly, as a seller, deserve. My only regret is that I didn’t pay to fly her to Cincinnati to represent us in the purchase of the new home as well." - Chase and Kate
"We had a great experience working with Shane! As first time homebuyers, we really appreciated all of her tips and guidance from our first meeting all the way through the closing and even checking in with us after. She really took the time to listen to us and what we were looking for and didn’t mind going back for second and third visits to make sure we found the right home for us. I recommend her to all my friends who are looking to buy." - Ruth and Jason
"As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous about the home buying process. Shane immediately eased my anxiety because of her knowledge, experience and positivity. From looking at houses and making an offer to home inspections and paperwork, she was able to make the entire experience seamless and fun. Shane anticipated every question or doubt I had, and was prepared with spot-on solutions and advice. If I learned one thing from my home buying experience, it is that whether you are the buyer or the seller, you need a trusted professional in your corner." - Valerie
"We would highly recommend Shane Lott as a realtor. We met with multiple agents before deciding on Shane to make sure we felt like she was the best choice. She was incredibly accessible throughout the process either by e-mail, phone, or text and had an almost uncanny ability to very quickly learn and understand our interests in what we wanted in a house. She gave honest and helpful opinions about the house buying process and we never felt like she was trying to sell us on a house we didn't want. What really stood out for us was that she genuinely seemed to be focused on what was in our best interest, rather than just getting commission on a sale. Even when she knew we could and would pay more for a house, she advised us to to put in a lower bid. This showed us that her ethical and professional interest was in us, and not the money. We hope we don't need to buy another house for many years to come, but if we do, we would not hesitate in using Shane again. She truly made the entire process of buying a first time home both stress-free and enjoyable."- Kathleen and Julian
"Shane, I want to thank you so much for serving as our real estate agent in Richmond. After four transactions – 2 buys, 2 sales – and great success each time, I feel like I would have uncovered any weakness you might have. Yet none surfaced! As your client from Williamsburg, I called both suddenly and often, and you always made yourself available. When it came time to buy during a “sellers-market” with limited inventory, you were able to get me in to see homes that had yet to hit the market. Your expertise and connections within the City, specifically with older homes, put me at ease. You clearly know and understand the intricacies of older homes. You always arrived with sound advice and statistics to back up that advice. With my two sales, you were able to get both sold quickly. And you did a wonderful job of communicating every step of the way. When we have another home to buy or sell in Richmond, you will be the first call we make." - Bobbie
"As homebuyers new to Richmond, Shane's knowledge and expertise made home buying easy! Throughout the process Shane was extremely attentive to our needs and genuinely cared that we found the perfect first home. She was always accessible via phone, email or text which gave us peace of mind during the most important moments of the buying process. We highly recommend Shane because of her professional and thoughtful service and extraordinary commitment to her clients!" - Keval and Brittany
"Shane did an amazing job as our realtor. She was attentive, patient and always professional. I would not hesitate to recommend her. She went above and beyond the call of duty! If we ever sell our house she'll be the first person I call! Thank you, Shane!" - Anna and Joe
