A familiar face has recently brought her talents and services to Stockton in the form of the new Stockton location of Shannon and Associates Real Estate and Auctions, LLC.  

With an official ribbon cutting and community-centered open house, Shannon and Associates has expanded its reach directly to the Stockton community.

“The turnout was great here,” Shannon Mays said of the new Stockton office’s official opening. “The reception was warm and I appreciate Stockton’s support. Anyone from the community is welcome to walk through our doors anytime.”

Mays, an international auctioneering champion, said the purpose of her company’s expansion was to have more of a presence and offer more personable real estate and auction services directly to the Stockton area.

Mays also commented on the strength of the local real estate community, citing the quality of established realtors in the existing business community.

Mays said she is pleased to play a bigger part in the Stockton real estate market and looks forward to working with the “talented and successful agents who all play a significant role in the area already.”

Additionally, Mays said matching qualified buyers with motivated sellers is something her office puts a local focus on by employing motivated realtors who both live in and know the region well.

“I have years and years of experience here,” Mays said. “I’m an El Dorado [Springs] graduate and my Dad is a Stockton graduate. Cedar County has always been my home, so opening a Stockton office is something that just fit. We’re incredibly happy to be here and we look forward to bringing all our services to this great community.”

Mays said she will be a constant presence in the new office, adding her staff is competent, friendly and ready to serve community members at a moment’s notice with any type of real estate or auction service needs.

Interested parties and area residents seeking information or wishing to inquire about real estate or auction services are encouraged to visit Shannon and Associates’ new Stockton office 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, 1202 S. Ward St., Suite B., by calling 276-0172 or by visiting
