Shively’s real estate career started at Better Homes and Gardens as the company courier nearly thirty years ago. Shively quickly moved up the ladder and was promoted to Executive Assistant to the President and Vice Presidents. During her tenure, Shively was awarded Employee of Year. Shively contributed her strong management and staff relationships to her supervisor during her time with Larasan Realty/Better Homes and Gardens.

Shively assisted in the opening of RE/MAX Central Realty prior to the RE/MAX Allegiance merge. A small office with less than 10 Associates, Shively handled all aspects of the office. Central quickly grew and became the number one real estate offices in the Hampton Roads area. Shively is currently responsible for the daily operations of Allegiance offices in Hampton Roads and Richmond, Virginia.

Shively was awarded the RE/MAX Allegiance Staff Member of the Year in 2008 and resides in Chesapeake, Virginia with her husband Rick and their three children.
