Shannon McAvoy came to real estate with Halstead with a varied career path. She worked for Fortune 100 Financial Institution, a Fortune 500 consulting firm as well as multiple non-profit organizations, and recently completed a year of service with AmeriCorps helping to establish an on-campus food pantry. Shannon’s transition to Real Estate comes naturally after working with her partner of 10 years in their design/build firm specializing in sustainably built and remodeled homes. “I am excited to be with Halstead and the fantastic people that make this company so great. My clients benefit from my years building, remodeling and designing homes.”

Shannon is very well organized, detail oriented. She believes everyone should be treated with kindness, and that finding the perfect house is like finding your partner in life – you know it’s “the one” the instant you walk inside. “Whether you are renting or buying, I will help you find the perfect place for you. If you’re selling, I will help you find the buyer that loves your home as much as you do.”

Born and raised in California, and no stranger to relocation, Shannon has lived in Southern California, Mexico, Northern California, and Oregon, moving to Connecticut in 2002. With road trips calling, Shannon has traveled to 33 of our 50 states plus Washington DC. She understands the difficulties and challenges of moving -- whether it’s across town or across the country. Finding the right community and a place to call home is hard. “I moved 17 times in 16 years as a child and have learned so much along the way. As an adult, I have completed three Corporate relocations in three different ways - in three different states. I can help you navigate through the challenges with a relocation - finding a spot for you to call home and a place to service your car.”

Shannon lives in Westport with her family and enjoys winter weekends teaching 7-14-year-olds how to ski at Mount Snow, Vermont. She is passionate about suitability and learning how technology for the built environment can integrate within our lives. She is also dedicated to raising awareness of food insecurity in higher education. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Trinity College (Hartford, CT) with a minor in Studio Arts – honored with the 2015 Mitchell N. Pappas Memorial Prize for Outstanding Achievement and the 2016 Outstanding Staff from Norwalk Community College.
