"Great experience working with Sharon and Marissa! We staged, listed, showed, negotiated offer and inspection, and closed in a smooth process that took about 4 months end to end. Sharon's experience and knowledge were invaluable. We are pleased with the outcome."


by Arthur Sternberg

"We bought a home with Sharon and sold a home with her. She listened to our needs and preferences and was a great advocate for us in the buying and selling process. She is very well versed in the Chicago market and did a thorough job in guiding us and researching prices to ensure a quick sale on both transactions. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is either buying or selling."

"Sharon is a pleasure to work with. She stays on top of every detail and is always thinking of what is best for her clients. She helped us with a rental, two condo purchases and one condo sale. All went extremely smoothly because of her hard work. We highly recommend her!"

"I have worked with Sharon for over 30 years. she sold us our first house in Lincoln Park and was fabulous! She helped us negotiate the price, aided at the closing and was a great resource for contractors and tradesmen to do the work once we closed.
Through the 25 years we lived there, she sent monthly newsletters to keep in touch. And then when it was time to sell that house and find a condo we contacted her again. She listed the house, did constant marketing and open houses, helped us stage the house and sold it in a few months. Meanwhile she found us the most fabulous condo in streeterville and we closed and moved in 30 days. She is the BEST and NICEST agent, ANYWHERE!!"
