Clients are saying:
"When I started looking for a new place in the city I went to many open houses, and Sharon was the only agent who took the initiative to follow up with me. She really knew the neighborhood, responded promptly to my calls and emails, and within just a couple of weeks I had a contract to buy a new place with many extras included in the price."
"Sharon and Cathy are easy to talk to and work with. They helped us list our home in a short amount of time and even better than that- they found us a buyer in under one week! They advised us on our list price, which was higher than we expected, but their expertise paid off because we sold for a great price. We trust Sharon and Cathy and are very pleased with their service."
"Trust: That is why we asked Sharon to be our realtor. Selling a home of 37 years to transition to a condo was a major undertaking for us. We found the reliability and support we needed with Sharon and Cathy. Their expert knowledge and honest assessments ably guided us through the financial and emotional decision-making process. They genuinely care about their clients and will do their very best for them."
