Hello everyone! My name is Shelley Parinello and I was born and raised in Texas, USA. My husband and I started vacationing on different islands back in 2011. We stumbled on this beautiful place called Punta Cana and fell in love instantly with the people.

We originally owned a piece of heaven in Texas that we thought we would retire and die on, but life has a funny way of changing your priorities as you get older. After travelling around, we decided that high taxes, mowing grass, and home up keep, while our kids were now starting their lives, was just the push we needed to downsize and enjoy our later years of life.

I have over 30 years of experience among property management, real estate, and as an escrow officer in Texas. My husband retired after 38 years as a detective in law enforcement.

We decided to retire and move to Punta Cana full time January 2017. I was a little concerned since I have never lived anywhere but Texas my entire life and, after all, it was a different country. But, we love the people, the landscapes, the beaches, and so much more. Keller Williams Punta Cana made it so easy! At Keller Williams Punta Cana there is a motto, “friends for life”. They were not kidding! They have not only been great and professional, but they are truly friends for life.

I now work with Keller Williams Punta Cana and we enjoy sitting on the beach telling our story to anyone who is considering moving here. Life here is a paradise and I’m so glad that we made the decision.

Since moving here, we have had several friends buy places as a great investment opportunity and for their future retirement. It’s one big happy family with not only expats, but with the locals. We love it here and thank you so much to Keller Williams Punta Cana for helping us live out our next chapter of dreams. Hope to see you under the palm tree on the beach one day soon!

Life is short, enjoy every second of it!
