Your Real Estate Concierge Shannon Hall truly loves, lives and breathes real estate. To her, it's not work, but rather her passion for the business made manifest.

As a multi-million dollar top producing Realtor in addition to her experience as a licensed residential builder, it's fair to say that Shannon knows the business inside out.

Numbers alone, however, do not tell the whole story. Unlike many in the service industry today, she is singularly dedicated to going the extra mile to provide a warm and immersive approach to what is undoubtedly the biggest purchase or sale decision you'll ever make. With your comfort and trust foremost, and her enthusiasm, knowledge and attention to every critical detail in a real estate transaction baked into the recipe, you can't go wrong.

Not only that, Shannon has a terrific knack for making the whole process enjoyable. You'll be sure to learn more than you ever thought possible when working with her, as Shannon is a natural teacher who illustrates her love of the field with a non-stop stream of anecdotes, advice and observation from her rather encyclopedic real estate brain.

As a mother to two grown daughters (one of whom Shannon works with on a daily basis) and a 2 year old grandson-she is both nurturing and a rock solid negotiator.

When not serving your best interests in the art of the deal, Shannon finds the time to pursue her hobbies of renovating and flipping residential properties, restoring furniture and vintage light fixtures, and traveling.

Shannon is the real deal, and you'll be in very good hands when you choose to hire her. She literally embodies her credo: When you really love what you do, it's not work.

Let Shannon do what she loves to do for you.


When it comes to real estate, Boyd Rudy has been around the block more than a few times. With a vast depth of experience in the mortgage and loan industry, foreclosures and short sales, real estate investments and buying and selling as well as managing as many as 300 real estate agents under him, Boyd has it covered for you.

While a consistent top producer for the brokers he has worked for during the last 14 years, Boyd has also made the time to expand his knowledge of his industry by belonging to The National Association of Realtors, The Michigan Association of Realtors and The Greater Metropolitan Association of Realtors.

Consistently posting increased sales numbers year over year, despite the grueling economic meltdown of 2008, Boyd has shown a never-say-die attitude, always looking for creative or innovative ways to buck the market and to bring greater value and better results to his clients.

His indefatigable drive, relentlessly analytical approach and personal charisma have combined into a sales powerhouse who is at your service. With Boyd on the job, you can be assured that your every need in today's volatile real estate market will be seen to, down to the smallest detail.

It's no wonder that several of his investment clients have literally become millionaires working closely with Boyd over the course of years.

And what does Boyd do when he's not elbows and eyeballs into the current market? He coaches rough and tumble junior league football. Makes sense. Strategy, stamina and execution are just what it takes to get ahead in real estate-and Boyd is your star quarterback.


"I love the people!” Kristy Horne replies when asked what she likes best about her profession.  With over 15 years experience in customer service and 7 in real estate, Kristy’s love of people percolates through every aspect of her conversation about what she does.

“It’s so exciting!” she says, “to hand people the keys to their new home!”  She is accessible, dedicated and enthusiastic about helping people make what will probably be the biggest purchase of their lives.  “As your friend and as your Realtor,” Kristy says, “my mission is to negotiate the best possible deal for you!”

In friendly, helpful fashion, Kristy carried a baby through numerous showings for a woman who was very pregnant with her 2nd child.  After the closing, Kristy sold the first home very quickly.   “That’s one happy woman,” she says, adding, “we’ll probably be friends for a long time.”

Friendship’s important to Kristy, whose empathetic, warm heart motivates her to make moving as stress-free and joyful as possible.  Recently she helped relocate a woman who had lost both her husband and a daughter within 3 months.  Moving from the family condo to a home near another daughter was necessary but filled with a deep sense of loss.  Kristy sold the condo, found the new home and presented her client with the following sign at closing:  “Welcome to New Memories!”  

Helping people ease through difficult transitions is what Kristy does best.   A big heart and compassionate nature are integral to who she is and how she approaches her profession.   She doesn’t find this remarkable however.  Instead she believes that “This is the way people should be.” 

A recent addition to the team at Dwellings by Rudy and Hall, Kristy says that the best decision she ever made was to become a realtor.  But joining Dwellings is a very close 2nd.  She’s thrilled to be a part of the cooperative, concierge culture of Dwellings.  “I felt at home right away,” she says. 

Indeed, her bright energy, consummate work ethic and caring heart are a perfect match.  If you’re buying or selling in the Metro Detroit Area, you’re in good hands with Kristy Horne. 


With a progressive attitude and an “out-of- the-box” approach to customer service, Paul Barraco is a perfect fit for Dwellings by Rudy & Hall. He came to Dwellings looking for an agency that mirrored his values and character.

Paul has over 30 years’ experience in customer service, employee relations and human resource management. He knows how to listen and has a strong knack for aligning himself with those he serves in order to truly understand what they want and need.

Paul has a reputation of being direct, honest and 100% transparent. “Clients may not always like what they hear”, he says, but they can trust him to look at every option, negotiate well and deliver exemplary customer service that exceeds their expectations. Complete satisfaction is his goal.

Well - travelled (having visited over 75 countries), Paul has owned homes in Boston, Honolulu, Orlando and Australia (among other places). This has given him a sound understanding of the intricacies of real estate sales.

In 2005, Paul and his family returned to his hometown of Plymouth. Growing up there, he attended school through the 8th grade. After high school in Ann Arbor, he attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. He and his family are proud to call Plymouth home and take pride in their community.

Paul has a strong connection to his Sicilian heritage. Sicilian is his first language, learned from his family. He also speaks Italian and Spanish. Because of his travels and upbringing, Paul values diversity and inclusivity and sees his service in Real Estate as a means of getting to really know people.

“It all starts with the right home,” Paul writes. “That’s where I come in. Whether selling or buying a home, I’ll be with you every step of the way.”

Paul has also been selected to serve on the Greater Metropolitan Area of Realtors 2018 Diversity Committee. 


When Stacy Britton was getting ready for a new career, she was looking for something that would make an impact. She decided on Real Estate, which enabled her to make a significant impact in the lives of others, while putting her skills to good use.

A successful corporate career can be difficult to leave, but then again, Jessi Schaufele has never been one to rest on her laurels. After years in Healthcare Management, Jessi felt it was time to get out from behind the desk an embark on a journey that would allow her to interact with people more directly.

But what could she do that would have a meaningful, positive impact on someone’s life, while giving her the opportunity to help directly? Then it dawned on her; having bought and sold 4 homes herself, why not assist people in the biggest purchase they’ll ever make? And Jessi knew exactly where to begin.

Jessi went to high school with Boyd Rudy, and when she decided to make the leap, she reached out. Jessi has been with Dwellings by Rudy & Hall since the inception of her career, and she says “I love it here, because it feels like a family. People throw that term around a lot, but Dwellings is the real deal.”

Jessi’s true passion is helping home buyers find the perfect new home. “I love watching the excitement around the process for the owner. Buying a home was a special moment in my life, and I get the opportunity to help people live that moment out in their lives every day. You couldn’t ask for a better career!”

A Canton native, Jessi is an expert in Plymouth, Northville, Howell and Livonia as well.

Danielle LeBlanc has been baptized by fire: rental homes. As someone is driven to fix things, hands on, Danielle and her husband (an engineer) plunged into identifying, securing, rehabbing and renting homes in markets in southeast Michigan four years ago, in the aftermath of the great Real Estate Meltdown.  Ask anybody–that's a challenge that's not for the faint of heart.But, with such hard won experience, Danielle is impeccably qualified to know the plusses and minuses of property acquisition, and sales, for you–whether you are new to the market or on your second, third or forth transaction.

Having been through the proverbial wringer herself with many real estate agents who don't know how to get back to clients in a timely fashion, who don't ask the right questions or who simply don't care enough to go the extra mile, Danielle vowed to become an agent herself and to work hard for her own clients. To treat her clients the way she would like to be treated.

Having grown up in Livonia, and lived in Westland before moving to Plymouth, Danielle knows the local market. Currently Danielle is handling explosive activity in South Lyon, tends to a maturing but active Canton and is helping lots of folks from out of town, find new homes in the area.
