I am a disabled Veteran with Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. Because of these medical disabilities, I was forced to retire. I could not climb stairs and needed a walker to move around, The home I was in could not be modified to address my mobility issues. I need a place that could accommodate a wheel chair and had no stairs. I needed to sell my Salinas home.

Due to the economic downturn, I owed more on the home than market value. I made some inquiries to find out who was the best and most aggressive relator specializing in distress property sales. After a few phone calls, I hired Sharon Shaw- Flores from Realty World Premier Associates. She had certifications in both distressed property and negotiations and I knew Sharon was up to the challenge. My mortgage was with U.S. Bank. This financial institution has a reputation for being tough on foreclosures and short sales. I knew I had to have the best to make this sale happen.

Sharon went to work and helped me fill out papers for a short sale and concurrently got a buyer for my property. The bank dragged their feet and kept losing documents. Sharon stayed on top of the application with daily phone calls and additional duplicate copy faxes. She also made daily checks on the property and kept me informed on all property related issues. The bank continued to stall for more time and seemed unresponsive to the short sale application. Sharon went the extra mile and contacted our congressman (Sam Farr’s office) to see if they could speed up the short sale application. With this effort, the bank finally approved the short sale. Even with the approval, the home had a $67,000 lien on the title. A previous lender had failed to file a conveyance to remove the lien. Sharon worked with the title company and lien holder to remove the lien. She was successful in all efforts and the short sale closed on March 27, 2014.

I chose the right Realtor. Sharon Shaw-Flores got the outcome I needed despite roadblocks along the way. She worked with a difficult bank, spent hours and hours of time faxing documents, managed my Salinas property, and communicated with me in a professional manner on all issues. Most Realtor's would have given up, but Sharon never stopped until the sale process was complete.

Consequently, I strongly recommend Sharon Shaw-Flores for all of your real estate needs. Sharon is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. I was impressed with her strong work ethic and her ability to get things done.Sharon gave me excellent advice and this contributed to our success. She knew what to do and succeeded in closing a very difficult short sale. I would hire Sharon again. Sharon is a great negotiator and will always work for the best outcome.

Sharon exudes professional expertise and confidence which she delivers with a personal touch. I found Sharon to be resourceful, great at conflict resolution, timely in meeting deadlines, and she has excellent follow-up processes in place.

One of Sharon's strengths is her ability to understand her client's needs. She is good at listening to her client. I felt that Sharon engaged in the selling of my home from the first day I met her. She kept me apprised of how the sale was going each step of the way.

I highly recommend Sharon Shaw-Flores, and would definitely seek out her real estate expertise in the future.

Sharon was totally awesome! She went above and beyond when it came to securing our home. She made herself available 24/7 and made every effort to ensure that we understood the process. Sharon took the time to go over every document and explain it time and time again until it was crystal clear. As a first time home-buyer the kind of time and energy that Sharon put into her work to make it a positive and less stressful process was invaluable.

Sharon is the best in the business! She help us sell our first home in a month. She went above and beyond to help us sell our home in a timely manner. We had bees in our chimney and never knew they were there, and Sharon never seen this before and went out of her way to research the process of getting rid of them. She is also great with communication through the entire process. I would recommend Sharon to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

Sharon helped us with selling our Father's house. She guided us thru the initial phases of listing, setting the price & negotiating the deal. We hit some unusual bumps in the process, she was able to negotiate us thru those & helped us to close escrow.
Another big plus for us was Sharon works with the Wounded Warrior program which I feel is important for all Veterans wounded or not as our Dad was a Veteran who served almost 23 years with the US Navy. He would have been very pleased that we were able to support this program.

Thank you Sharon,
Linda

Sharon isn't one to toot her own horn so I am happy to do it for her.

There was no question that I would choose Sharon to conduct the sale of my house in Salinas. Sharon has the work ethic that I attempted to emulate when I worked in her office. She has a knack for attention to detail that put me at ease from the Listing Contract to the final disclosures and advisories during the escrow period.
We are very pleased at the outcome of the sale that closed escrow on time with no surprises or glitches.

I highly recommend Sharon to represent you with the sale of your home.

During the transaction she was always one step ahead and on top of everything every step of the way. I'm so thankful for Sharon because she made us a priority in her busy schedule and not only took care of us but made us feel important. Thank you so much Sharon, I pray for the best for you and your family 😊.

Sharon was awesome; she made sure my wife and I understood every step in the process and was outstanding in dealing with the seller's realtor when issues arose. I've worked in the mortgage industry for many years, however this was the smoothest process I've ever been involved in....Thank you Sharon, Jeff, and the entire Homes for Heroes team.

Sharon was very helpful with buying our home. She notified us of every step and helped us throughout. She explained every single paper very well and took time to explain things I didn't understand. She was very nice and a happy person which helped us stay positive and patient with the process. It's a very stressful time but Sharon made it easy for us. She is a very trustworthy person. I already recommended her to a few friends and family. She knows everything about buying homes. Thank you Sharon.

Sharon went above board to help me sell our house. she gave me many suggestions that were wise and good and helped sell the house quickly and efficiently. She also helped me with things that I couldn't do because I lived out of town, yet she did it for me when she didn't have to. You have heard of smart phones and smart tv, well, Sharon is a smart real estate agent and one I would hire again in a heartbeat! Thank you for this opportunity to recommend Sharon as an excellent real estate agent.

Because our home was unique and not the type of property for every buyer, it was a real challenge, There were so many ups and downs and twists and turns that it was quite emotional. It was also our home of 40 years so that was tough in itself. Sharon was by our side every step of the way and never gave up nor did she let us give up. Her commitment to us, her knowledge, her constant professionalism and communication was second to none and we are so grateful we chose Sharon as our Realtor. Thank you!!!
