~M. Parker "I highly recommend Sharon Bishop if you are looking to buy or sell. We selected Sharon as a buyer's agent for our relocation to the area. Sharon is very personable and knows the area well. She is a great listener and narrows in on what's important. Sharon is both enthusiastic and persistent during the search, and don't let her kind disposition fool you. She represents her client's interests effectively and strives to get the best possible deal. We thought Sharon was delightful to work with and will call her again when we convince my mom to make the move"
"Hi Sharon! I apologize for not getting this done sooner. You did such an amazing job for us and we could not be happier. Thanks again Sharon! Testimonial as follows:
My wife and I met Sharon on our first trip to Greenville while searching out neighborhoods to relocate. Sharon helped us by explaining each of the areas in regards to building, real estate costs, schools, etc. The help she provided allowed us to focus our search from abroad. On our second trip to the area, we had only 2 days to see 10+ houses. She coordinated showing all of the houses on our list! We found a gorgeous home in the Carolina Country Club. Sharon helped with Arborist Inspection, General Home Inspection, negotiating a better price on the home, all with our better interests at heart. Her hard work ethic and kind professionalism is outstanding! This is our 3rd home and we could not be happier here. Thank you again Sharon!"
