Meet the Team:

Hello, My name is Shawan Pettigrew. I am a born and raised Central Florida resident that has been in the real estate industry since 2000. I first became interested in pursuing a career in real estate after purchasing my very first home in 1995. My entrepreneurial and administrative background led me to open my own brokerage firm in 2006.

My husband, Dan Pettigrew, is my real estate teammate since 2011. Dan has over 10 years of experience in the mortgage industry prior to joining up with me in real estate. He brings a very valuable set of skills to the transaction for both buyers and sellers. This knowledge helps customers in determining values and assisting them with the loan process.  

We also have personal and professional experience in investment properties. We have owned, remodeled and built many homes over the years. This brings us a unique knowledge set to customers who may need help in locating building and repair contractors.

In our spare time, we enjoy spending time with our dog, horses, mini horse and mini donkey on our 5 acre horse property. We enjoy many hobbies including classic car restoration, antique collecting, arts and crafts.

We are experts when it comes to matching our client's needs to fit their lifestyles and budget. So, whether you prefer the country club, golf course, waterfront, historic home or country farm living, we can help you find the perfect place to call home.

We are passionate in helping our customers and treat them as our friends and family. Our services are customized for each client and our goal is to make each real estate transaction a positive and as seamless an experience as possible. Let our many years of experience help you reach YOUR goals today!

From our clients:

J.& L. Anderson -- Nov 2018

Dan really outdid himself to get us our dream house! In the beginning, he helped us narrow down exactly what we were looking for and saved us time from looking at houses that didn’t meet our requirements, although they looked good online. Finally, we found the perfect house and got it under contract. Unfortunately, our prior home that was under contract fell through. That is when Dan really came through for us. Our only option at that point was to do a lease option. The Seller wanted much more down than we were willing to put up and I thought the deal was over but Dan with his expert negotiating skills was able to come up with a structure that got both sides what they needed. Dan truly went the extra mile and if it weren’t for him, we certainly would not have gotten our house! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Dan!

Scott and Bonnie Conner -- Nov 2018

Dan and Shawan,

Bonnie and I wanted to reach out and thank you for a great job! You found us our dream house and sold our home for a good price. It was a pleasure working with you. Let’s stay in touch and feel free to use us as a reference anytime.

Thanks again!

Vijay & Archie Thumma -- Nov 2018

Thank you very much Dan & Shawan!!! Archie & I wanted to say how impressed we have been all through the process working with you. You are the best out there and I don’t think anyone cared more than you for what we were really looking when we wanted to a buy a house. You made sure that we were not just buying a house but a place that we can call a home. You guys are professional, competent, responsible, and above all care for your clients.

Also, thank you for a professional home selling experience. Follow ups were thorough and your constant communication and attention to every detail made the process simple and easy from beginning to end.

We can’t thank you enough for the hassle free experience and we would only go with you for any future transactions. You have our highest recommendations.

Jonathan Smiga -- Nov 2018

Thanks for all the amazing support and technical help throughout this very long and complex process. You two have been amazing to work with and gracious advocates for all our needs – including emotional ones!

You’re the best…simply awesome!

Pat & Carmen Wiesner -- Nov 2018

Thank you Dan & Shawan,

“We were very happy with the work that you did to sell our home. From our very first experience with you we could tell that you guys were a cut above the rest. The pictures that Dan took and put on your website were awesome. They really made our place look great, gave our home a lot of attention and more importantly a lot of showings. We also appreciate the great tips to help us get the place ready to show. Your close communications with us on the showings and providing us with timely input from potential customers was also very much appreciated during this emotional time. In the end you guys worked hard to work out a deal for us even when it looked like we were too far apart to make a happen. We couldn’t be more pleased with your part in helping us sell our home!”

Maureen and Rudy Schnitzer -- Nov 2018

Hi Dan and Shawan,

“WOW! Make sure and let Dan know that he was right, I didn’t recognize the inside of our house. Rudy said to tell you that we will buy it from ourselves! LOL. I wish that other realtors had the high level of professionalism that you both show. We have looked at other houses on the MLS and the pictures are awful. Tell Dan he should have seminars on taking photos for listings and how important it is.”

Thank you both so much. Wonderful job.

Doug Pfaff and Bev -- Nov 2018

Dan and Shawan,

Thank you very much for the lovely bottle of wine we found at our new house yesterday. Nice surprise!! Thank you also for all the assistance through our search and getting the deal done on 2108 Northumbria. We were both very impressed with how you handled all aspects of the sale and went the extra distance when needed. You exceeded our expectations which doesn’t often happen, and we even had some laughs along the way! Will definitely recommend you to others. Stay in touch,

Charley & Brenda Roberts -- Nov 2018

We would like to share our comments regarding the recent purchase of our home in FL and our complete satisfaction with Dan and Shawan Pettigrew of Sterling Chase Realty.

While there are some obstacles in purchasing a home while residing in another state, the level of service from Dan and Shawan was superb and we were able to overcome the obstacles fairly easily. They were most responsive to our needs and kept us apprised every step of the way through emails and phone calls. When we were in town for the contracting and final closing, Dan and Shawan made sure that all of our needs and schedules were their top priority. They were also most helpful in recommending high quality people for services that we needed, such as mortgage lenders, home inspectors, surveyors and barn builders; of which we are most pleased with the ones that we used. In short, we are extremely pleased with the level of service provided by Sterling Chase Realty and would certainly recommend them to anyone.
