Charlette and I have been searching Zillow and viewing properties for about 6 months in search of a place to retire with the criteria of under $125,000, more than 1 acre, single family house with at least 2 bathrooms.
When Charlette saw the property at 1211 Hudson Road, she stated that she has not seen another house that caught her eye like this one and that she was certain that his was the house she wanted to buy.
I called the listing agent for her and the salesperson said she was on her way out to her honeymoon but stated that Dickie Harrington could show it for us. From the moment we called Dickie, he was very responsive and made time to show the property on Sunday. That same day, we submitted a contract with his help and guidance. He updated us is an above average time with any updates that had to do with the offer. There were quite a bit of challenges and this was Charlette’s first time purchasing a home but he patiently explained everything and calmed both of our nerves as we received the ratified contract, to the inspections and repairs, to the appraisal to the settlement table. Which by the way was completed in about 30 minutes which is almost unheard of. (I used to be a sales person years ago).
We both were extremely satisfied and thankful that we chose Dickie to represent us.
He did an EXCELLENT job!
We love the property and the neighbors are great. I even went to the church service next door this past Sunday and had a wonderful time.
Thank you all again,
CharletteK Moore nd Jesse C. Moore Jr.
Thanks...we LOVE the house!

I found Sydney sensitive to the needs of my family, attentive to our interests, and responsive to our multiple inquiries and requests for information. Her selection of properties to be reviewed was on target, and she took the initiative to alert me to a bargain property undergoing auction under extremely short deadlines.
She actively consulted with me during the on-line bidding for the property, facilitated the subsequent settlement, and provided guidance in the selection of contractors required to ready the property for residency.
All in all, a class act!
Sydney has earned my highest recommendation as a buyer's agent. Any prospective home buyer would be well-advised to work with her and her firm, Sharon Real Estate.
When we first met with Sharon, it was apparent that not only did she know the market , but also had a keen sense of who a likely buyer would be. Knowing that we were very frustrated, she encouraged us to list at a lower price , thereby attracting more buyers. Right away we had several showings and after a few weeks a contract was written! Then before the papers went through a second offer came in with "all cash". With just a little negotiation the contract was accepted , settlement was sped through and our house was sold.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sharon and her team to get the property sold. We totally appreciated that we were always "in the loop" with timely response to our questions and Sharon's diligence to keep us informed.
We would not hesitate to recommend Sharon's firm, all in all, we were very satisfied!

My wife and I immediately knew, we made the right choice for a realtor. Sharon was very attentive to our needs, desires and everything we were looking for in a home on the shore.
With her insight, patience, understanding, knowledge of the area and market, it wasn’t long before we found the home that has been enjoyed not only by us but by family and friends for sixteen years. It had everything we wanted and more.
Sixteen years have come and gone and the decision was made to retire, move out of State and sell our beautiful home.
Once again, we called on Sharon to sell our home, the same home she introduced us to sixteen years ago.
Her expertise and knowledge of the local housing market and the market in general paid off in no time flat. Within thirty-five days, we had not one but two prospective buyers. The house sold within a couple of months after listing.
We can’t say enough about Sharon Johnston and her group of professionals at Sharon Real Estate.
My wife and I, highly recommend The Sharon Real Estate group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the local and surrounding area.
Thank you Sharon and everyone at Sharon Real Estate. It’s been a great ride!

Sharon made what we thought was going to be a difficult and time consuming process the easiest part of our move. If you are looking to buy or sell a property in Dorchester County, I can't imagine why you would choose anyone else.

Cambridge is certainly a difficult seller’s market at present – but Sharon found the perfect buyer. She took care of the back and forth of negotiating and shepherding the closing process with these first-time homeowners. A done deal and we’re more than satisfied with her and her team’s efforts.

We couldn’t hire Sharon because we were buying the house and she represented the sellers. So here are a few reasons why, from a buyer’s perspective, you should retain her for your next home sale:
-- She anticipates buyers’ interests. The house we bought was a 2-story waterfront property, no dock, central air on the first floor, window air on the second. The information packet she gave us, before we’d even discussed details, included estimates for building a dock and installing central air upstairs – both things a buyer might want to do sooner or later.
-- Communications and bumps along the way. Sharon stayed in touch with us promptly throughout the loan approval process, foresaw and knew how to avoid many of the truly weird things the lender might ask, and helped us avoid those pitfalls.
-- Follow-up. Ever since the purchase closed, Sharon has stayed in touch with us and the sellers to deal with any follow-up issues, and to ease our transition to our new home.
-- Savvy, positive approach. Sharon knew the house, the neighborhood, and the community. Her aim throughout was to reach everyone’s common goal of “making the sale happen” without a lot of needless hassle. She succeeded! Many thanks!

My "Thank You" seems so small compared to all you've done, but it comes from the heart. ~ John M. Bramble, Jr.
Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough for all of your help in selling our home and finding us a fantastic place to move. You have our deepest gratitude.

I can't thank you - and your wonderful staff - for all you did for us. You went far beyond the relationship between realtor and client and became a friend.
Thank you for so many kindnesses.
