Sharlene is Wonderful!

!! She has shared with me her vast knowledge about the home selling process and tapped and prescreened her network of realtors in my area of Boston MA and referred a couple to me that she felt would be a great fit for me. I especially liked that she took my needs and concerns seriously and spent her own personal time to talk with Realtors about my needs prior to referring them to me. Sharlene's Customer Centered Focus is something all Realtors should have in this business. She is a tremendous asset, not only me but to the real estate industry!
