Sharon goes the distance to make sure her clients understand the St. Pete real estate market and the complete process, whether they are buying or selling a home.  She also makes it a top priority to educate out of town Buyers on the community, churches and school system.  She is a resident and an active volunteer in the Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood of St. Petersburg.

Having resided in a 1920's era home for nearly 20 years, she has a deep appreciation and knowledge of historic homes and neighborhoods.  Her home was featured on the 2008 Historic Old Northeast Candlelight Tour of Homes after she and her husband lovingly restored and transformed their 1922 Arts and Crafts bungalow. They succeeded in blending existing space with a new addition, while honoring, maintaining and celebrating the Arts and Crafts Movement they so love.

In addition to the historic neighborhoods of St. Petersburg, Sharon's expertise extends to Snell Isle, the downtown condominium market, and surrounding areas. She brings her clients superior service, professionalism and knowledge while understanding the ever-changing market conditions of today. Her passion for meeting and exceeding her client’s expectations results in their business and loyalty for years after the sale.

Sharon is a member of the Pinellas Realtor Organization and volunteers in the local community, including serving on the Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood Candlelight Tour of Homes Committee.  Outside of real estate, Sharon enjoys walking and biking downtown and the waterfront parks, as well as playing tennis at The Vinoy Club, where she and her family are members.  Sharon is proud to have her husband, Rick, a local real estate attorney, by her side which proves very handy with many of her real estate transactions.  As a mother of two girls, ages 13 and 15, she is very familiar with the private and public school systems in the area.  Sharon and her family attend First United Methodist Church in downtown St. Petersburg and her children attend St. Petersburg Christian School and Calvary Christian High School.
