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.

Our experiences with Sharon over the years have been nothing but exceptional. This is our second time buying/selling with Sharon, and she has always made herself available to us and was there to assist every step of the way. The homebuying process can be stressful, but her years of knowledge and experience is calming. We would definitely work with her again and would recommend her services to anyone interested in buying and/or selling.

Before knowing Sharon Shaw-Flores, she was highly recommended by a friend and co-worker. With that strong recommendation I immediately made contact with Sharon and was kindly greeted with professionalism, knowledge, and understanding. I felt comfortable through the process where every transaction was handled with expertise. With that said, I would highly recommend Sharon to anyone needing a Real Estate Professional.

Sharon is awesome! She listened to our wants and needs and found the perfect house. My husbands is a veteran and we wanted to go with a VA loan.

As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I had no idea what we were doing. Thank goodness for the multiple recommendations that we received from friends. We reached out to Sharon with our questions and she was friendly and welcoming from the very beginning! She put us in contact with a finance team that was nothing short of amazing! Even though the process of purchasing a home is extremely stressful, Sharon was always honest and made everything as simple as possible. Unfortunately, my fiancé and I have completely opposite work schedules. However, Sharon always made it work! True dedication. And most importantly, she never seemed bothered by my hundreds of questions. I would highly recommend Sharon for any one that is looking for a home!

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,

Very pleased. Total time from listing to closing was less than 2 1/2 months. Out of 5 stars with 1 being the lowest and 5 the highest Sharon and her staff get 5+. Always easy to correspond with Sharon. Knowledge and person ability are outstanding. She works well with other realtors and thier clients. She relates well. Sharon navigates extremely well with all the ups and downs of selling a property. She puts the needs of her clients her number one priority. I will never look any further when needing the services of a realtor. On behalf of Rosemary and Rick Ridge we Thank you Sharon and your staff for your services.

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 😊.
