With a professional background steeped in real estate, Sharon brings a reassurance to clients, whether buying or selling, that evokes trust, loyalty and confidence. “Carefully listening to each client’s individual needs, helping them prioritize their desires and negotiating the best possible transaction are the most important things I can do. I want to give each client the same high-level of service I would want for myself.” Discreet, bright, open-minded, detail-oriented, enthusiastic and thoroughly professional, Sharon believes that each client is totally unique. Helping busy clients, who are pressed with a myriad of other responsibilities, ease the process of buying or selling real estate is one of her most important goals.
With more than 20 years in marketing and promotion, Sharon uses her in-depth experience, market knowledge and creative talent to develop effective, targeted marketing plans to bring the most exposure to a listing and to properly stage a home for the best possible visual impact. On the buying side, her keen listening skills and critical, artistic sense help clients recognize their true needs, visualize their new residence, and steadily guides them through the interesting, and, at times, circuitous search for the perfect home.
Sharon’s career is more than just about business; it is about building and maintaining close ties and relationships. Over the course of her career, she has developed life-long, wonderful friendships with numerous clients and associates. More than 90% of Sharon's business comes through referrals.
Born and raised in Chicago, Sharon has been a resident of the near north area for her entire adult life. In addition to her two grown sons, daughter-in-law and wonderful granddaughter and grandson, she devotes most of her free time to films, theater, museums, and galleries, fiction, travel, and most recently, the wonderful world of scuba diving. Sharon is also on the board of 3Arts, a foundation that awards unrestricted annual grants to artists (women, people of color, and people with disabilities) working in music, theater, and visual arts.
