I have a high level of energy that lends itself well to my full-time career as a real estate professional. I am constantly learning and have established a reputation for staying ahead of technology and marketing curves by evaluating and applying tools and techniques that work. Over the past few years I have been able to develop an exceptional social media presence. Whether a person’s needs are immediate or long term, the relationships I am able to develop are strengthened through my use and understanding of new media outlets. I share my experience in social media marketing through frequent speaking engagements and networking events that help me continually sharpen my skills.
Purchasing a home is more than just a transaction. I am keenly aware that your new property is at the center of your lifestyle. Understanding what is important to you and your family will stay at the center of everything I do for you as a buyer. As a seller, you need someone that stays firmly on the pulse of market conditions in every neighborhood. Knowing how to navigate markets and apply value to the unique features of a property is also a key factor in determining the value of a real estate professional’s service. Whether a market is up or down, a professional that spends their career gaining insight through experience and relationships can keep money from being left on the table or a listing left lingering on the market.
Delivering unequalled excellence to each and every transaction requires focus. At the core of that focus are good communication, accessibility and unwavering integrity. Visit my website www.SharonSteeleRealEstate.com

"After we followed Sharon's recommendations and listed our home, the house was sold within 4 days of putting it on the market. The homes in our immediate area were sitting on the market for much longer periods of time with other agents. Having now known and worked with Sharon, we would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. We would not be in our home today if it were not for her hard work, dedication, knowledge, persistence, and straight forward professional attitude. She is by far the best realtor we have ever had the pleasure of working with and, in our opinion, is by far the best real estate agent in Union County. We would definitely reach out to her in the future for any of our real estate needs". - Mark and Jennifer Yanni.
"From the moment we met Sharon at the home of a mutual friend, until the purchase of our new home, we have always been impressed by Sharon's knowledge of the market-whenever we asked her about a home that had just come on the market, she had already seen it and was able to offer her thoughts on whether it met the criteria that she knew we had for a new home. Sharon clearly puts a great deal of time and effort into making certain that she has a total understanding for the market that she covers, which, from our point of view, is ciritcal for her to be an effective advocate for her clients. We would not hesitate to have Sharon handle any and all of our future real estate transactions and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home".- Todd and Aimee Avella.
"Buying a house is a major investment, and I can honestly say, you made everything feel comfortable. Between your expertise, professionalism and kind spirit, you kept the stress level at a minimum, explaining every step along the way. Sharon, I would highly recommend you to anyone I know looking to purchase a home, and I already have! See you in 5 years when I'm ready to move again!"-Pamela Gabel
You brought us home! From the first time I met you - two years ago, I knew you would be the one to make this happen. You proved me right. You were there walking me through the process every step of the way and beyond. Even though I was looking for a small home, I never felt like a "small" client. I was on the forefront of your mind receiving exceptional service. - Julye
I knew immediately when I met her at an open house ni February of this year that Sharon would be the realtor for us. Quick wit, spunky, high energy-all made us bond with her immediately and to trust her with this important home buying experience. Sharon is an asset to your team! - Pamela & Paul Christy
The personal attention that Sharon gave us through this entire process was exceptional. We were really amazed by how hard she fought for us and the dedication she had to make sure we got our house. I said many times to my husband that we were lucky that Sharon was on our side! We could not have been happier with our first-time experience buying a house, and for that we really have to thank Sharon. - Kristie & Brian Colvin
She worked hard. But more importantly, she worked smart. She provided counsel, comfort and comic relief at just the right time and in just in the right amounts. She knew the local housing market and had her own network of trusted resources at her disposal for any service or support we needed for both our sale and our purchase. Mark & Michelle Cibort
How does one thank another for their tireless dedication, their unwavering faith in good to come, and their endless pursuit for another's happiness? I certainly do not have the answer, and I have yet to find a way to express this gratitude to Sharon. The only way I see fit may be to continue to shave faith in our home, and enjoy the new life that she has made possible. Buying and selling homes is what Ms. Steele does to earn an income, but fulfilling dreams and creating new lives is what she lives for. We are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Sharon Steele as a real estate agent. Throughout the entire process Sharon was professional, conscientious, and motivated with an impossibly high work ethic, and the ability to meet our every need. Not only does she represent the best in a real estate agent, but she has redefined a new standard by which all agents should strive to achieve. Sharon was an absolute pleasure to work with. - William & Noemi Tal
Sharon's sharp negotiating and organizational skills made for a successful transaction. (In fact, I've never worked with a better negotiator.) Without reservation, I can say that I would not have accomplished this without her professionalism and devotion. I would never choose a realtor other than Sharon in the future, and I wholeheartedly encourage any prospective clients to trust her with their real estate needs. - Karin Hoffsten
My husband Richard and I have moved houses a number of times, including across Continents. We have never had such a n engaged, determined and helpful agent as Sharon. Sharon essentially led us through every step of the process and took on as many things as she could to minimize our "house-moving distractions" considering we both have full time jobs and lot going on. She was very knowledgeable about the market and was able to get us what we consider a very fair price for our house in a somewhat depressed market. However, Sharon's ability to push for the best deal ( and to do so fairly and in a positive manner) was her most helpful attribute for us, since she was able to get us an amazing deal on our new house. Her ability to negotiate and deal with people was the catalyst that got us the house we really wanted. We are very happy in the new house, and we owe a lot to Sharon. - Sandra Morris & Richard Tillyer
I have been in her company several times and she has always impressed me with who she is. For example, Sharon is an excellent communicator: always sincere, respectful and thoughtful, with a gentle sense of humor. Her congenial personality made us feel immediately at ease. Simply put, Sharon is an exceptional professional who has earned the respect and highest recommendation of our family and attorney, as well. - Lenore Flangan
My husband and I recently bought our house in February 2011 and worked with Sharon Steele. Throughout the entire process, Sharon was very diligent, professional and knowledgeable. She worked with us for a long time and was always patient and never pushed us toward something we did not want. She took the time to get to know our needs and because of this, was able to direct us toward specific types of homes we would be interested in to make the most of our time together. - Laura & Matthew Davide
My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend Sharon Steele to anyone who needs a kind, considerate, and professional realtor. Sharon did everything possible in order to accommodate our needs. One of her best qualities is listening to exactly what we wanted and going the extra mile to make it happen. When you find a realtor who knows what you want better than even you know yourself, you've got somebody special. Sharon is the epitome of professionalism and knowledge. We feel that not only did we find a great broker, but an ongoing friendship. - The Thomases
We are writing to express our complete satisfaction and gratitude for Sharon Steele as our realtor. Throughout the entire process Sharon was professional, conscientious, and motivated. We always felt as though we were her only client. - Rod & Alicia Bimson
Your work ethic and level of professionalism were both impressive and reassuring. You made us feel like we were your most important clients, whether it was your quick responses to our questions, your ability to keep us abreast of new houses on the market or your appearance and demeanor. It is rare to find a salesperson that puts people before profit and we can honestly tell our friends and family that you will put them first. - Pete & Jen Stevens.
