Don't Judge A Home By Its Oak


We all know the saying 'Don't judge a book by its cover.' In real estate, you can't judge a home by its oak. See how you can transform oak in your home in this month's Feels Like Home series.

"Our experience with Sharon was amazing. We were new to the area and wanted someone who would be open and honest with us. Sharon was just that! We have a young child and needed to consider school systems and neighborhoods. Sharon was very professional and helped us find the perfect house for our family! We will always be grateful to her for her genuine kindness and positive energy!"

There is a method to choosing wall color and it can help alleviate the madness that comes with covering up mistakes. I should know.

The Spring Market Is Just About Here


Here’s some great news for homebuyers and sellers! The job market remains strong, interest rates are remaining low and we are gearing up for a very active spring real estate market! Also, inventory is low!


What does this mean to you? In many price points we can’t meet the demand of the homebuyer’s needs, so your home to sell could look very attractive to multiple buyers! If you have considered a move, whether to move up, right-size, consider townhome living or build a custom home, this truly is a great time to do so!


Here is how I can help:


  1. Determine how much (or little) competition there is for your home for sale.
  2. Conduct a comparative market analysis (CMA) on your home, determining the value. Help you prepare your home to sell.
  3. You will make a list of your top 10 wants and needs in a home. Spouses make separate lists!
  4. Find several that meet your needs. We will tour these together and make qualified decisions together. Touring homes is a great way to see what is really important to you!
  5. If you are building, I will guide you through the design/build process, and keep you on target with selections, and in communication with the builder!
  6. And finally, I will demonstrate to you how rewarding and positive the real estate selling & buying process can be!
