The Shine Team are a professional and caring staff that provides excellent customer service. They took the time to assist me and my family through our buying and closing process. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor.

by Cristal H.

I have already recommended the Shine Team to multiple of my military friends and family. The best realtor company I have ever dealt with. Made selling my house easy and painless. Great communication from their team to keep me undated on every step of the process. Thank you.

by Nicole C.

The Shine Team is amazing. Great group of people. Very professional and kind. Got us under contract with our house within 2 months after having it listed for 6+ months with another realtor. Each team member has a specific area of expertise, which I think was fantastic. Everyone knew what they were doing and how to do it. Thank You for an amazing experience!!!

by Monica L.

The Shine Team was absolutely phenomenal! They were flawless in helping us sell (to include closing) our home in just two months after it had been on the market with a previous realtor for 6 months and no offers! Lori did a great job in keeping us informed and giving us confidence that our home would sell to the right buyers. She answered any questions we had and made the process pain free. And even though we were no longer in the area (we are a military family so we moved) she stuck with us step by step, making us feel comfortable with the process. We will definitely be recommending the Shine Team to everyone we know who is trying to sell their home in the Killeen/Harker Heights area. Thank you very much Shine Team! A+!

by Christine S.

The Shine Team did a great job taking our home from coming off the rental market to sale. They assisted with some repairs and cleaning and generally made the process easy. My wife and I are out of state and I'm deployed, so it was great to be able to count on the Shine Team to handle all the details back in Texas!

by John O.

We loved working with the Shine Team to buy our first home! They were extremely responsive to messages and emails, even during the holiday season. Their knowledge is top notch and they are extraordinarily friendly! They were there for us through the whole process from initial contact, to negotiation, to closing. It was a pleasure to work with them and we will definitely be recommending them to everyone in the future. The Shine Team was able too get us into our home as quickly as possible while still making sure all our questions were answered in a timely manner. Thank you Shine Team!

by Kylie G.

The Shine are the consummate professionals in the central Texas area. We bought our first home with them more than 25 years ago. They taught us what types of things to look for (zoning nearby, security of neighborhood, schools, etc.). Due to jobs and life changes we have since sold that house, bought and sold another and bought our Empty Nesters home, all with the help of the Shine Team. As our needs have changed, they have always been prepared and helpful. The Shine's are aware of the needs of the military and civilian, Killeen/Belton/Temple and surrounding areas. They are advocates for sellers and for buyers.

by Sally P.

The Shine Team was amazing all throughout our home search and escrow process. As a military family, we were unable to look for a hone actively in the area so we relied on our realtor to help us find the perfect home for our expanding family. Jill Currier and the Shine Team made everything stress-free, were always easy to reach when we had questions and helped us close escrow by mail. What else could you ask for as a military family? We completely recommend them should you be moving to the Fort Hood area.

by Jaron M.

The Shine Team Realtors excelled in their services to my husband and I. They weren't "pushy" about any particular properties, price ranges, or areas whatsoever. They were open-minded and listened to any concerns we had and were able to put us in a home right where we wanted to be. Our particular realtor did an outstanding job and she was very prompt in giving us any new updates she had and any paperwork that needed to be completed by us for her. The person who helped us in the closing department was also very helpful and we never had any problems as far as communication went. 10/10 would recommend to family or a friend.

by Cecilia T.

The Shine Team did a great job with the sale of our rental property. As out-of-town owners, we relied upon the expertise and professionalism of the entire staff at the Shine Team for all aspects of the listing and sale of our house. They took care of the marketing, coordinated repairs, handled the negotiations, and made the final closing process smooth and simple. The Shine Team was great to work with!

by Bob & Lisa G.

Carol & Steven were the best people to work with!! Carol's negotiation skills are like no others!! They helped us step by step to get us into our new house in a very short period of time. Very professional group to work with. The entire Shine Team is dynamic and I would highly recommend using them!!

Our Story

To know Jean Shine is to be her friend and if there is one thing Jean loves it is finding the ideal home for her friends. Much of that drive to help introduce families to this great community comes from growing up as the child of a career military officer.  After gentle urging from friends and family, Jean got her real estate license and saw it as an opportunity to expand her reach and help more families discover the great places and people of her home.  From those humble beginnings as a one woman business launched in 1980, Jean Shine has expanded her business, her commitment to her clients and her community involvement at a rapid pace. 

That one woman show is now a dedicated team of real estate professionals appropriately called the Shine Team. In addition to her husband, Bill, Jean has recruited her two sons, Steven and Scott and her nephew Rodney, to assist the needs of her clients.  Each of them brings a unique skill set that helps the Shine Team focus on all aspects of their clients' service experience.  But, it takes more than just family to create this dynamic real estate team; the Shine Team also has an “adopted family” of real estate professionals on the team, which include a Listing Specialist, Marketing Specialist, Staging Specialist, Buyer Specialists, and a Client Care Coordinator among others. 

When the Shine Team says they know the Central Texas area, they mean it!  The Shine family tree has roots dating back to the 1870’s when the family settled in the Temple area.  From there, the family spread across Bell County in search of farm land and work and they are still here today.  The Shine family strives to continue the “no outsiders” attitude that is unique to the Central Texas community. There are few places in the United States where a person can be welcomed and meshed into the fabric of the community as quickly as Central Texas.

The Shine Team has been an industry leader in innovative systems that allow them to create unique customer experiences at the highest level.  The Shine Team vision doesn’t start and stop at their front door; dedicated to improving the quality of the real estate profession, Jean and her team teach their systems to other real estate professionals across the nation.

Service to the community runs deep in the Shine family and they consider this support they provide as energizers for their life. Members of the Shine family can be found serving the community on school boards, supporting their church, being heavily involved in military events, establishing cancer research projects and founding the Wreaths for Vets organization.
