Sharon Black helped us purchase a condo in Kelowna in 2008 and sell the same condo in 2017. We were so impressed with her service the first time, we asked for her services again when we decided to sell the condo.
When Sharon helped us purchase a condo in 2008, we noticed her organization and dedication. We live in Greater Vancouver and for the few times that we drove to Kelowna to look at condos, it was important to use our time efficiently. She gave us printed information about each condo and drove us to our well-timed viewing appointments. My husband and I didn't know what we wanted and we wavered back and forth between condos suitable for our retirement and condos suitable as income property. Sharon listened to our comments and systematically narrowed down what was important to us. She has in-depth knowledge of the Kelowna area -- a great asset as she pointed out not only what we could see around the condo buildings but also what had been approved for future development around the buildings. She was already familiar with some of the buildings, having been the purchasing or selling agent of one of the units there. After a few trips to Kelowna, we were able to purchase a condo that would be desirable to tenants, and desirable to both of us when we settle in Kelowna for our retirement. We owned the condo for 9 years and we did not have a problem finding tenants.
When we decided to sell, Sharon's services went over and beyond what we expected. She looked after preparing our condo for market including having the condo cleaned, replacing the floor covering, repainting, etc. We still live in Greater Vancouver so Sharon (and her invisible team in the background) prepared, staged and listed our condo while we communicated only by phone and email. We trust her and we had full confidence that she would look after our interests. Although she had other clients at the same time, you wouldn't know it because she answered our emails and phone calls promptly, kept us informed and consulted us when making decisions.
It was a great pleasure working with Sharon. We highly recommend her to anyone.
