Shelly Dietderich - Realtor
I believe that the best job is one that you find rewarding. It’s one of the reasons I became a real estate agent. I have always found it rewarding to have an opportunity to get to know so many different people and learn their stories. As a real estate agent with Alexander Chandler Realty, I can do just that as I help home buyers and sellers in the DFW metroplex. If you are looking for an agent who cares, communicates and is passionate about helping people, you’ve just found her!
Career Path: From Broadcast Journalism to Real Estate
I didn’t start my career in real estate, but I’ve worked a wide range of positions that have helped me develop important skills I need to partner with my clients. My first job was for a local ABC affiliate in Nebraska. From their I moved to the QVC Network and eventually ended up in Texas working for Pier 1 Imports in their corporate office in Fort Worth. I was lucky enough to work with a local interior designer preparing design training for store associates so they could assist customers with “turning their houses into homes.” My last role outside of real estate was 11 years with the UNT Health Science Center and UNT System helping develop leaders.
How do my past jobs help me as a real estate agent, you might be wondering? In addition to working in roles that required a dedication to serving others, I’ve taught the theory and practical skills of communication, negotiation and persuasion, emotional intelligence and motivation. Now I’m putting my knowledge and experience to work to help home buyers and sellers.
A Fort Worth Resident Who Loves Exploring
When I moved to Texas in 1993, I fell in love with Fort Worth and the surrounding cities! What I find amazing is the small-town atmosphere of my hometown of Fort Worth and the surrounding area. From the cultural, to the food, to the small hidden gems. Of course, there is still a lot for me to explore, especially as the metroplex continues to grow. So, let me know of your favorite haunts and I’ll share mine with you. And if you are new to the area, send me a note and I’ll share some of my favorites!
A Personal Note About Me
I grew up in Nebraska (go Big Red!), moved to Pennsylvania (right outside of Philly), and finally landed in Texas in 1993. It’s a family joke that I had to move to Texas to meet my husband, who had just moved down here from Lincoln, Nebraska! We’ve been happily married for 22 years. We have two children, one dog and two kittens. My son is an avid fisherman and plays high school ice hockey with the Birdville Hockey Club so when you meet me just ask about how a proud mom broke her shoulder going out on the ice to take a photo! My daughter is an up-and-coming basketball star, math whiz and soon-to-be percussionist as she enters middle school next year (just a little bragging from a proud mom!).
