About Shanahan Realty

Those in the market to buy or sell residential or commercial properties can trust in the well-established tradition of hard work and reliability at Shanahan Realty.

Just over 22 years ago, Leo Shanahan began selling farms and rural properties, and quickly built a reputation for his honest, straightforward advice and dedication to getting clients exactly what they need. His son Paul joined the business eight years ago and together they have seen their Watford-based, independent family business grow incredibly.

Shanahan Realty now has three offices, including one newly opened office in Brucefield. They also grew from two agents to 10 in only four years. Their agents have an array of different backgrounds and experiences, and live all over Southwestern Ontario from Port Franks and Grand Bend to London, St. Thomas, Strathroy and Sarnia, giving them great range and accessibility to clients.

The growth of Shanahan Realty has also meant they now have coverage of three real estate boards which is great news for clients. This means they can market sellers’ properties on three different boards to potential buyers across Southwestern Ontario, giving triple the coverage at no extra cost.

When you come to Shanahan Realty, you can expect to find realtors who give clear, honest advice and are not afraid to work long and irregular hours to get clients what they need. From consultations to negotiations, you can rest assured that with a personable, no-nonsense approach and consistent work ethic, the agents at Shanahan Realty will come through for you.

Part of this strong work ethic comes from the rural roots of the Shanahan family. As a farming family, they’ve cultivated a business based on a determined, down-to-earth, friendly attitude. Paul says one of the reasons they have experienced success over the years is by maintaining the more personal, individualized relationship with clients that comes from being a small family business.

Agents with Shanahan Realty are also happy and willing to put clients’ schedules before their own, because making your experience as stress-free as possible is a huge priority for Paul and Leo. They have call forwarding cell phones to ensure that they are reachable at all times: “We know our clients don’t want to talk to a machine,” says Paul, “so it’s important that they have access to us at anytime.”
