Sheila Budelier

Real Estate Agent

I’m a Full Time REALTOR® for First Choice Real Estate.  I pride myself on my ability to truly listen to my clients’ needs and connect them with opportunities that best match those needs.


My family are local farmers, who own and operate several housing rentals in the area.  We also renovate homes for resale.  I can draw from my own experiences of buying and selling properties, and can share my knowledge that I have learned along the way.  I am focused on working with buyers and sellers in the Tri-County and Quad Cities Areas, but if you ever have questions about real estate outside of those areas, don’t hesitate to give me a call as I have some great resources I can draw upon.


I work tirelessly to help you to ensure you are connected with the best real estate opportunities.

Gary Paper

Real Estate Agent

With my parent’s purchase of the local lumberyard in Durant back in 1987, I have been in & around the building/construction business for a very long time.  My interest in the construction business led me to becoming a real estate agent.  I have been a real estate agent for the past 22 plus years.


I have experience/knowledge in remodeling, new construction, and home repairs.  I love working with people and watching families move into their dream home.  Whether it’s a starter home or a final home, I can assist anyone with purchasing real estate.


With my background in the construction industry, I am able to help guide new homeowners towards making a smart purchase to call home.  If you are in the market for a new or existing home, we have lots available in Southlake to build on or I can show you an existing home.


Either way, give me a call and we will make your dream home become a reality at First Choice Real Estate.
