Who is High 5?

High 5 Residential History, Mission Statement & Our Core Values

The High 5 Way …just the basics, done exceptionally well.


After more than 25 years in leadership roles for several leading Property Management firms, Shelley James launched High 5 Realty Advisors in the fall of 2017 where she worked directly for apartment owners as an asset manager and advisor.

At the urging of several clients, Shelley and her husband/partner, Steve James expanded the company in March of 2018 to include property management services under the name High 5 Residential with a goal of “Creating Exceptional Living Experiences” at a local level.
