We sold our vacation home thanks to Sharp Real Estate Team. We choose them over two other people we interviewed, because we liked the plan they had for promoting the sale of our house and the price they wanted to list with made sense. They were also highly recommended by our local agent. The house sold almost immediately, at full  price. Through it all, we really liked working with the team. They were very professional and dependable. We had renters the week before the house went on the market and our housekeeping arrangements fell through. Sharp Real Estate Team took the situation in hand and graciously made a run to the dump. What more could you ask from an agent. We highly recommend Sharp Real Estate Team.

Janet & Joe

They were terrific! Sharp Real Estate Team worked so hard for us. From the beginning of the process it was clear that the team wanted to take care of their clients. They know all the Realtors and were able to get us into see homes very quickly. When we were interested in making an offer, Janie & Kristi helped us assess the market, make the offer, the counter offer, etc. All in all they were professional,wonderful to work with, very knowledgeable and truly someone to count on. They always went the extra mile to make sure the deal would happen and had our best interest at heart. I wouldn’t use anyone else.

The Hoxie Family

We have used The Sharp Team to sell two homes in Truckee, both located Tahoe Donner. For both homes The Sharp Team was fantastic, and we received the asking price on the first property, and above asking price on the second property. In both instances, Janie, Kristi, and Rachel took control of the process and handled everything expertly. We had nothing to worry about, from the initial listing, walking us thru the disclosure documents, taking care of prepping the property, obtaining specialty help when needed, and making sure the closing documents were correct.
