Suggestions from our friends on Facebook:

  • Shawn Yesner You could go with the traditional (fishing) saying of "Tight Lines!" You could use some real estate language like "Escrow is bound on this episode, talk to you next week." Or "This episode is good 'As-Is'"
  • Jimmy Murray "I'm Shelley and this is how you close."
  • Kenny Keeney "Stay classy Sarasota."
  • Rick Odneal "This is Sarasota Shelley, assisting you with your dreams"

  • Jennifer Beam "This is Shelley signing off to go sell another slice of paradise (Slice/piece/house)"
  • Jennifer Dougherty "Thank ya. Thank ya very much." (the classics never go out of style)
  • Gerald Gary How about: "Until Next Time, Buy Sarasota!"
  • James Flip Benatti If its a physical sign you can play on words Like buy instead of bye, if you're saying it its different. And use your name to reinforce who you are if possible.
  • Dave Swenson "Don't go bananas, call Shelley Panas"
  • Chris Upright "Going with Mr Rogers classic...Won't you be my neighbor

Profile picture for Shelley Panas
Living in Paradise! After running a successful company in Colorado Springs I decided that although mountains are beautiful, it was time for beaches. I relocated to Florida and joined the highly successful team at CENTURY 21 Beggins Enterprises -- the #1 C21 in Florida! I love it here! There is always something new to experience. At the end of the day, it is so nice to hop on my bike and head to the beach. The feel of sand squishing between my toes, listening to the waves crash on the shore while watching the sun paint the sky beautiful shades of gold, red and purple as it set is the perfect way to end my day. So I ask, why just come visit when you can stay?

I believe there is something profound in owning a home. This is your personal place to dream big dreams, relax in comfort, and be with the ones you love. I became a REALTOR® to help people have a better life.

We started our podcast in 2018 after Ed spent most of 2017 developing ideas for launching a podcast, only he didn't like any of the show topics he was testing. To test his audio gear he started "interviewing" me about my work in real estate. Needless to say, these test recording sessions became very silly very quickly and that's we realized we had our show. Ed brings his technical expertise in web development and digital marketing to complement my skills and experience in real estate to the show.

I have been a huge fan of podcasts since before they were even called "podcasts"! I remember listening to talk radio shows as far back when I was a kid through my college years. My frustration was always with getting a good signal or catching my favorite shows when they aired. When "Internet radio" shows started in the early 90's I used to listen to streaming shows from college & public radio stations, but connection speeds were limited. When podcasting started in 2004 I knew this was going to be a significant change in audio entertainment. As my weekly listening time increased over the years my interest in starting my own show grew as well.

I started kicking around the idea of starting a podcast shortly after moving to Florida in 2014, so in 2017 I joined Florida Podcaster Association in Tampa and learned how I could start my own show. As Shelley mentions in her bio, my ideas all sucked. (She says it much nicer than this.) I either lost interest very quickly or the ideas were just plain bad. She agreed to work with me testing out my new gear and audio production skills talking about her work in real estate. We were having so much fun doing these practice recordings we realized that this was our show. After a few months of learning about audio production and working out our content plan, we launched Selling Sarasota Podcast at PodFest Multimedia Expo on February 9th, 2018!
