SHELBY GUEST

DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS

Shelby Guest serves as the Director of Operations for the Perry Guest Companies. She is a born and raised Dallasite who as the daughter of a real estate broker and land developer has been around the industry her entire life. While initially starting her working career as a Junior Broker for UBS Paine Webber, she found her interests lay more working with customers rather than the stock market. For the next 15 years Shelby focused her career as a sales and operations manager in the “to the trade” showroom and interior design industry. In this capacity she was responsible for interior design projects with furniture budgets in excess of a million dollars as well as the showrooms annual revenue in excess of ten million dollars.

In 2013, when her husband Grant asked her to join Perry Guest Companies, she accepted the challenge, shifting her expertise from operating a showroom to operating a real estate company. In this capacity, she oversees the management of the investments as well as all of the financials for the entities.

Shelby can be found most weekends tending to her garden or hosting casual gatherings for friends and family. The Guest’s home has an open door policy every Saturday in the Fall where you can find her and Grant avidly watching as many college football games as they can. Grant manning the grill and Shelby covering the sides and dessert! They also have what some may call a “slight obsession” with their Cavalier King Charles puppies, Callie and Tucker. Occasionally, you can also find Shelby dusting off the cobwebs of her golf swing and showing her husband who the boss is on the golf course!
