Rave Reviews

Jennifer and Carren have been our agents for 6 years, helping us reach our real estate milestones with great success! They are a great team, and have all the qualities you are looking for in an agent:they are extremely knowledgeable about the SF market, have a great network of connections as they have been working here for years, and are extremely responsive and available! They are tough negotiators while holding themselves to high ethical standards. But more than that, they are just nice and enthusiastic people! – Marie C.

Jennifer and Carren are a remarkable team. They helped me through the maze of legalizing a unit, getting it ready for sale and finding the perfect buyer. Super supportive, incredibly knowledgeable, they know everyone and they manage to make it all seem like fun, which working with them was. – Linda H.

We have known and worked with the Shagley Team for over ten years and three transactions. They define professionalism in the often chaotic and revolving door of SF Bay Area real estate. They are the real deal, and have been serving clients for decades. It has been invaluable to have access to their expertise and local network of contractors, handi-persons, designers, stagers, etc. On top of their generosity with market knowledge and overall get-it-done attitude, the Shagleys are extremely kind and genuine – an amazing combo! – Hannah D.

Our Personal Stories


Carren Shagley

I graduated from UC Berkeley with a psychology degree: that desire to understand people continues to fuel my interest in getting to know and understand the driving force behind people and their decisions. I was born in Chicago but have lived all over California. Before real estate I owned a leather hat company – named Nacca Dacca. I can boast Debra Winger wore one of my hats in the movie – An Officer and a Gentleman. I was drawn to real estate because I love problem solving, numbers, and home improvements. I have built a new home from the ground up, remodeled many, and bought and sold countless.

Jennifer Burden

I grew up in Northern California and graduated from San Francisco

State University and CUNY Law School. I worked as an assistant public defender in Miami and moved to civil litigation in San Francisco for 10 years. I have always been passionate about home ownership and have personally experienced how it can positively affect your life emotionally and financially. I love that real estate allows me to work with a wide range of people and help them turn their abstract desires into a reality.
