We cannot speak highly enough about Sharon O'Hara -- starting with our first call to her, she went above and beyond in every regard and always did it with incredible professionalism, a calm patience and a smile. This was our first home purchase and Sharon took extra time to navigate us through the entire process, from start to close, in a way that made us feel taken care of and confident -- she has a very friendly demeanor, but also a remarkable ability to persuasively fight for your interests and push hard in negotiations. On multiple occasions she readily stepped in and smoothed out snags that were not getting resolved, even though they were not her responsibility. We felt like we were Sharon's #1 and only client the entire time -- for example, we got cold feet right before making our offer and she sat with us in her office on a Sunday night for hours walking us through other options and making sure we were comfortable with our decision. Sharon is like a trusted friend you feel sad saying goodbye to at the end of the process. We will absolutely work with her in the future and recommend her to anyone.

Sharon was an excellent agent! We knew right away she was perfect for us and our sale. Her personable character, calm spirit, and incredible real estate knowledge helped us achieve a price over asking. She flawlessly handled the negotiations as a bidding war occurred and got the best contract possible. Beyond being a great agent, Sharon is just a great person. She seemed more like a friend helping us through a challenging time rather than an agent doing her job. I would highly recommend her without any reservation.

Sharon O'Hara did a great job for us. She took the time to understand what was important to us, and because of her strong knowledge of the Roscoe Village and North Center area, she was able to target our search and give us very good advice about pros and cons of different properties we saw. She was always on time and was top notch in all areas of follow up, from returning calls and emails to gathering and analyzing data we requested. Sharon is well respected among other brokers, and her strong reputation with her peers helped us get a few showings on short notice based on our schedule, which we appreciated. Most importantly, Sharon truly viewed her job as being our advocate. Her input was very useful in contract negotiations, and she was proactive in offering up ways to make our lives easier during the process. We now consider Sharon a friend as well as a trusted advisor, and we highly recommend her.
