BACKGROUND AND WORK PHILOSOPHY
Sharleen is one of the fastest growing, top-producing agents at Julia B Fee Sotheby's International Realty in Scarsdale. She has been successful because of her real estate and business knowledge, her skills as an effective negotiator and her reputation as a highly trusted partner. She brings more than 20 years of experience living in Westchester, has international experience and is fluently bilingual in English and French.
Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, Sharleen quickly learned some of the key components of business and incorporates these elements into her daily activities as a real estate agent.
1) Have passion about what you do.
2) Show expertise in the areas in which you work
3) Understand and exceed your clients' needs and expectations
Her personal experience with buying, selling & renovating homes helps bring a different perspective to the home selling & buying process. Additionally, Sharleen's background in Pharmaceutical Communications and her educational background in Art History result in a keen ability to help her clients visualize and understand the potential in the homes that she helps her clients buy or sell. As a sellers' agent, she helps her clients prepare their homes for the "big reveal" or listing day, and for her buyer clients, she helps them see the potential in homes that may not be putting their best foot forward.
She believes that a "house" is an investment & your "home" is your haven. As such, Sharleen strives to elevate the image of real estate agents by being honest & open with her sellers and buyers. She uses her knowledge of the market to help advise and guide them through what is often, one of the most important transactions in their lives. She is trustworthy, hard working and practical and explains the process to her clients in a detailed way and keeps the lines of communication open throughout the entire process. She believes that satisfied clients are key to her success and gains many of her new clients through "word of mouth" referrals. Walt Disney sums up her approach very well....
"Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and bring their friends." - Walt Disney
