Kelly Brown - Realtor
Kelly Brown – Kelly Brown grew up enjoying visiting my grandparents every weekend at the beach and when my husband and I had the opportunity to move to the beach to be near my parents, I knew it was the leap of faith we needed to take. My children have been able to make memories just as I did; going to the beach, fishing with their grandparents and picking crabs on the porch while the sun is setting. For these reasons, ten years ago, I traded my career utilizing my MBA in Executive Leadership to move to the beach and raise our two girls listening to the waves crash, smelling the ocean breeze and feeling the sand between my toes.
When we choose to move to the Ocean City area we choose Sheppard Realty because we wanted to be represented by a real estate agency that was truly a part of the community. They were the perfect fit for our family so when I decided to begin my career in real estate I knew I wanted to be a part of Sheppard Reality and also help others establish roots in our beautiful beach towns. I grew up as the daughter of a builder and while I have no desire to swing a hammer, my passion for creating the perfect home for a family started at a very young age.
When I’m not in the office I’m typically spending time with my girls on the beach, or out enjoying the local restaurants with my husband. If you are ready to take a leap of faith and start creating your own family memories here at the beach please feel free to reach out and I will be more than happy to help you find your perfect fit!

Gussie Sholtis - Realtor
Gussie Sholtis – Hi my name’s “Gussie”, which is short for Augusta, strange name I know but I am also the last of 7 children, I always figured by parents ran out of ideas. I’ve been a resident of Berlin for 20 years and a licensed Realtor for 12 years. Being raised in a military family I have lived all over the U.S., and in a number of foreign countries. When I “discovered” Berlin back in 1989 I knew this was where I wanted to stay and plant my roots. I have NEVER been disappointed by that decision.
I love Berlin and had been selling it to anyone who would listen for years when a friend suggested I get my license and turn my passion into a career, the best advice I had been given in a long time.
I have two awesome grown children (22 and 24) who grew up in this town where they walked to school, rode their bikes to the library, played under the streetlights with the neighborhood kids and had all the shop keepers know them by name. . Whoever coined the phrase “It takes a village…” must have had Berlin in mind, because we are that “village” that knows and looks out for each other.
I worked the first 7 years I was licensed with a company in Ocean City where I was also a bartender in the summer. My mother has lived in Ocean City for over 20 years and I am there daily still.
So, whether Ocean City, Berlin or the surrounding areas I’d love to help you find YOUR spot on the Eastern Shore.
Leslie Smith - Realtor
Leslie Smith – Nothing gives me greater satisfaction, than seeing my clients reach their goals in home ownership. Whether you are looking to buy a second home, investment property, primary home, or are a first time home buyer, I’ve got you covered! I have lived in this area my entire life and selling real estate for over 17 years. I can offer you insight about the market and the different areas in OC that many agents aren’t able to do. Here’s a few of my clients thoughts on working with me. I’m looking forward to talking with you soon!
If you are buying or selling in Ocean City or Ocean Pines, look no further. Leslie knows the area very well, has good relations with many other agents, and helped guide us through several multiple-offer situations over the past 6 months – most of which… we won. She is level-headed, responsive and has great instincts.
Leslie was always there to answer any question we had and help us navigate finding the perfect property. She made sure the process went smoothly and has stayed in contact well after the closing. We would recommend her to anyone… looking for the perfect property!
Leslie was so helpful helping us buy our dream home! She treated us like family and talked us through every step. I have already recommended her to my friends who are looking to buy a home so I would 100% recommend her to anyone!
Leslie was wonderful to work with, she kept vigilant searching for a home that would fit our large family (5) and still be close to the beach (as well as economical). I would recommend her 20 times over!! During the process, we were also selling a home; this was a stressful (by another realtor unfortunately).. Leslie was supportive of us, and sometimes served as a therapist!!! Leslie always brought solutions to situation, hands down the best around. Now we live 2 miles from the beach in tax free Delaware, and life has never been so great!
My wife and I started “browsing” with Leslie about 2 years ago, not sure what we really wanted. We decided about 9 months ago what we wanted to do and Leslie got the job done. From the search, to finding the right property, to closing, Leslie was… there every step. Thank you Leslie!
Being new to the area Mrs. Smith showed our family numerous homes and gave us many options she also provided us with information on schools hospitals and the local area I would highly recommend her to anyone who is either an investor or looking to make Ocean City their home she went above and beyond a 5 star rating , very knowledgeable.
