    Sharon assisted us in finding a suitable... residence in the West Valley. She is a very gracious, kind person and is well-organized, prompt in communicating and diligent and thorough as to all details of the home-buying process. We highly recommend her.read more

    Sharon’s goal is to make the moving experience –... from touring properties to closing escrow and beyond – as stress-free as is possible.Her website includes a plethora data that makes surveying the various communities in Sun City and Sun City West convenient. A favorite feature is the printable copies of the floor plans. The buyer can select a favorite floor plan, and Sharon will customize the property search to your specific floor plan(s). For buyers wondering how well their furniture will fit, the dimensions are available. That is practical and helpful information.Sharon’s personal dedication to serving her clients’ needs is unsurpassable. For example, with only days before closing escrow, the paperwork transferring ownership of the solar panels was delayed for various reasons related to the seller. Sharon spent an hour on the phone with the solar company sorting out the details so that I would not have to hassle the stress.In escrow, the people whom Sharon recommended were also excellent, which for those of us who do not live in the area is invaluable. The escrow officer was friendly, efficient, and timely. The home inspector was adept at detecting conditions that needed repairing, especially minor repairs (an exterior electrical plug hidden by plants) that the untrained eye misses, and his recommendations were constructive.Sharon will help you find the property that you want and support you through the entire process.read more

    What makes a really good realtor? Look no further... than Sharon Rowlson and you'll have your answer. She is the consummate professional who has great experience, fantastic communication and personal skills, great patience, provides expert advise, great listener, great attention to details, has a great understanding of the local housing market, a great attitude, has an extreme interest in helping others, and is honest with great integrity.Literally for years I've been considering relocation from the Pacific Northwest to a Southwest 'over 55' active adult community for my retirement. I finally purchased recently with great assistance from Sharon. She has been there every step of the way patiently educating and staying in touch to answer all of my many detailed questions regarding all the various "over 55" active adult retirement communities. There are many, each with their pros and cons. Originally discovered her via a Google search, her website was/is very comprehensive showing comparisons amongst those many "over 55" communities. Being tech-savvy is important in this competitive, constantly changing real estate environment and the site helped a lot before we initially communicated. Sharon is on time, always follows up and has many great networking connections should one be needed (e.g. inspectors, handy folks, mortgages, etc). Though I purchased a new construction home Sharon has been with me every step of the way providing great advise both functionally and support-wise. There are a lot of moving parts in life affecting such a large transaction as a home purchase and having an understanding professional like Sharon is a great asset. It's great to have a well grounded, knowledgeable realtor like her who has been through new build construction a bunch of times. She has even provided me guidance and tips regarding selling my current home despite me having a local realtor in my current city before I actually relocate to her home state. And she has offered to help with finding temporary housing for me as I await my closing date in the new city. Though she's very busy (because she's so good) I never have problems reaching her within a short amount of time. Though we first know each other professionally, because of her great demeanor and kind qualities we have also become friends. It also doesn't hurt working with a professional who loves and has animals in the family as well.I highly recommend Sharon Rowlson if you are looking to sell or, in my case, purchase a new home and need expert guidance through the complicated competitive real estate world.Mitch SSeattle area to Arizonaread more

    Sharon helped us with the purchase of a home in a... Del Webb 55+ Community at Sun City Festival in Buckeye, AZ. As we were relocating from So. California, her knowledge about the area was invaluable. She helped guide us through the process and was very organized & efficient keeping us well informed and up to date on all aspects of the transaction. If anyone is interested in buying or selling a home, we highly recommend utilizing her services. Sharon is the ultimate professional!Ray & Lynda D.read more

    We were looking to purchase a home in a... retirement community in the Phoenix area. The best thing we did was to hire Sharon Rowlson to assist us with this process. She made suggestions and showed us homes in many different communities. Her skills shined after we found a house we loved and were ready to make an offer. Sharon assisted us in making the proper offer, since numerous offers had also been made on this house. I believe her communications with the seller's agent set us apart from the other potential buyers and our offer was accepted. We can't thank her enough with the assistance she provided us.read more

    Sharon helped my husband and I purchase a... beautiful home in Sun City Grand. We were purchasing from out of state which made it a challenge. Every time we found a property Sharon drove to it and looked it over to give us her honest opinion. She was with us every step of the way and referred us to so many people to help us including painters and home inspectors. I would highly recommend working with Sharon. She genuinely cares about you and your purchase!read more

    Sharon expertly helped us purchase our brand new... retirement home in Phoenix, Arizona. We had been looking online and she found so much more for us than we could on our own. She patiently showed us all that we wanted to see and made excellent suggestions once she got to know us and our needs on our first trip from southern California to check out retirement communities in Phoenix. She was always there when we needed her. She had expert knowledge of the area and good referrals and followup. She was a true partner in the experience of buying our new home. We chose to build in a new community and having her expertise to coordinate with our builder made the process so much better. I have already referred her to several friends and she will be my go to realtor in Arizona. If you are retiring in Arizona, she's the one to help you find your perfect place. Happy house hunting with Sharon!read more
