Testimonials

I have worked with Shari over the last couple of years. Knowing I would be downsizing at some point and my home would need some updating, I wanted a realtor's perspective on what renovations should be done. I called Shari, who gave me a specific list of recommendations. She was very mindful of keeping costs down and making small changes with a big impact. Many months later, she helped me look for appropriate properties. When I found a foreclosure I loved which needed an overwhelming amount of work, Shari was extremely helpful in outlining the things that would need to be done and helping me determine whether I could afford the renovations. I could never have taken on the task without her help. I spent the next year renovating the house, and every suggestion she had offered proved to be wonderful. I am living in my dream home. When I was ready to sell my old house, Shari's recommendations to prepare my house for market were outstanding. Her sense for what buyers want in terms of fixtures, colors, the right amount of furniture to stage the house, etc were amazing. The brochures, pictures, open houses, etc were highly professional and effective, and the house sold in less than 3 months. Shari was extremely helpful in the negotiations. I always knew she was on my side, even if it meant she would lose the sale. I can't say enough wonderful things about Shari and all she did for me over the last couple of years. I would hire her again in a second. She works VERY hard for her clients.

As the end of another year rapidly approaches and the beginning of a new year lies ahead, it causes one to reflect on the events and people who most impacted their lives during the past year. 2010 was a tumultuous year for my wife and me as we planned to relocate closer to my practice. The stress of selling a property in a difficult market and looking for our dream home while juggling family life and our careers was extremely daunting. Fortunately, we were privileged to meet Shari Sirkin. Shari thoughtfully, efficiently and graciously guided us throughout our home buying experience. Shari's dedication to her clients is simply outstanding and drives her to work at a level not to be surpassed. We so appreciated her tenacity, intelligence, good humor and inexhaustible knowledge base throughout the process. We marveled at her keen ability to represent our interests and needs while moving the transaction forward to closure. This navigation was artfully done and further exemplified her rare abilities and professionalism. Shari made our quest for our "perfect home" a reality. As we prepare to celebrate our first holiday season in our new home, we can't help feeling truly privileged to have crossed paths with her. We couldn't possibly say enough about Shari Sirkin, but wanted to at least make you aware that she is in a league of her own and should be recognized as an outstanding real estate professional and an invaluable asset to any agency she associates with. A house is so much more than a roof and four walls. It is a home where people raise families and build memories. They plant roots and plan for the future. We couldn't be happier in our new home and will forever feel grateful to Shari for helping us embark on this amazing new chapter in our lives. She is truly the best. Wishing you a healthy and prosperous new year.

Homeowner

Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills: The quest to find a home can be daunting as well as exciting. There are many aspects involved, least of which can still be challenging. It is so vital to have an expert realtor to help in this process, so that the experience is a positive one. Shari Sirkin is one such realtor. After I had looked for a home in Connecticut for close to a year, and having worked with various realtors, I met Shari. She is a capable, experienced professional who went above and beyond the call of duty in order that the purchase of my home was smooth and without issue. Ihad had a negative experience a few months before when I came close to buying a home that turned out to have been misrepresented and which became a litigation over deposit funds. Shari knew about this and handled everything connected with her with kid gloves. She was extremely sensitive to the situation and did her best to restore my faith in the industry. She is personable, sincere, and does her best to find an appropriate home and neighborhood for her clients. I highly recommend her as a trusted real estate professional.

My wife and I wanted to write and let you know how happy we are with our agent Shari Sirkin. First I'd like to share a little background information. Since 2006 my wife and I have sold two single family residences, purchased a newly constructed home at Meadowbrook Estates, an over 55 active living community, on the Seymour/Oxford CT town line, subsequently decided to move back to single family residence living, and last year purchased our current home here in Southbury CT. Shari Sirkin was the seller's agent for the Southbury home we now live in. In the past six years we have had experiences with numerous real estate agents and, with one possible exception; we found them to all be competent professionals who acted in the best interests of their clients. But Shari stands out head and shoulders over all the agents we've had contact with. From the start, our experience with Shari has been wonderful. The day of the closing on our Southbury home, she stopped by to remove the lock box and took the time to ask if we needed any information about the town or local vendors. She provided much helpful information that was above and beyond her responsibilities as a listing agent. We subsequently put our Meadowbrook Estates property on the market with the agent who sold my previous home, and who also helped us purchase our Southbury home. After six months of little to no activity my wife and I realized we needed to make a change, and decided to change our listing agent. As the seller agent for our Southbury home, Shari had handled our transaction in such a professional, yet considerate, manner that when we decided to change agents she was the only agent we considered. Shari knows her market, knows how to sell properties and works tirelessly on behalf of her clients. The personal attention and concern she has for her client shows in everything she does. She is always prepared, and most importantly, will tell you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear. With her help and guidance we were able to realize that it was in our best interest to consider holding on to our property at Meadowbrook Estates and pursue a rental agreement on the property while we try to wait out the current market conditions. Shari is an outstanding representative for your agency and we look forward to working with her again down the road to sell our Meadowbrook Estates property.

Big congratulations to my BFF Shari for winning a Platinum award after her first year with Sotheby's International Realty. Shari actually sold us our home and that's how we became friends. Well, I became obsessed with her because she is FASCINATING. She knew every nail hole in our 200+ year-old house. She knew literally every inch of it and it's history. She is as dedicated to real estate as any physician I have ever known is dedicated to their patients. After I got to know her I realized it the people that hooked her. She meets people when they are in a state of transformation. Maybe their kids are grown and out of the house so they need to scale down or maybe they have achieved success and want a country house or maybe they are going through a divorce and they are forced to sell their house. It's the personal story of each individual that she cares about and she genuinely cares so much that I have had to look inward at my own self and I see so much room for improvement. She deserves all the awards, success and acclaim she receives because she's the real deal. In an industry that can be hideously and hilariously shallow, Shari is all substance. I'm so happy for her!
