"Over the past 40 years, my wife and I have worked with many real estate agents in the Bay Area. When we sold our Palo Alto home in College Terrace we were fortunate to meet and ultimately work with Sharon Witte at Pacific Union. Sharon turned out to be the finest agent that we have ever worked with. Her commitment to superior service, communication on a timely basis, listening to our needs and concerns, and being proactively involved were simply invaluable. I would be honored to speak with anyone considering working with Sharon as your agent." - Victor Martindale

"This letter is to provide positive feedback on our experience during a recent selling Experience. Sharon has many strengths including thoroughness combined with attention to detail. With these strengths, we, as sellers, came quickly to a very good comfort level trusting that we needed because of being 1st-time sellers. Sharon alleviated our concerns about the market conditions at the time by showing us comparable houses in our area that had quickly sold so that we could become confident that we were asking a fair price for our property. All stages of the process including work that needed to be done before we could stage the house were handled with the same expertise which gave us more comfort. Finally, the open house activities and bidding process were handled very skillfully which led to a very successful sale and both satisfied seller and buyers." - Jim and Gloria Krause

"The first thing we noticed about Sharon Witte was that she was quiet. As an elderly couple, we were nervous about throwing ourselves into the boisterous real estate market, so we were grateful to be spared a loud hard-sell. (It was almost as though she were just the next-door friend coming over for a morning chat about neighborhood houses.) When we showed her around our own home, which after 43 years was bit shabby, it was obvious that she too had raised children in Palo Alto. During the whole selling process, this original basic sense of comfort was never absent from our dealings. As we progressed and the extent of her professionalism became more evident, a strong level of confidence was added to the comfort. She was always accessible and every query was immediately dealt with; if it was a complicated matter--disposing of all wanted leftover contents of the house for instance-- she was always able to refer us to people whom she knew were efficient. Yet in spite of all this, we were still nervous as the day approached when we could expect offers. Sharon quite understood our tension and went out of her way to keep us informed, with up to the minute, almost hourly calls on the final day. The practical result of all her work was a sum considerably above the asking price, and way above the original Zillow evaluation. But almost equally important, in a different sense, was our realization that it had not been an ordeal at all, that at moments it had actually been fun. And moreover, we had made a new friend." - Mark and Ellie Hawkins

"Sharon helped our family, very successfully, buy and sell our first home. Throughout the process on both sides, Sharon consistently kept us well informed of what was happening at the time as well as what to expect next. She was always calm, took as much time with us as we needed, and was willing to explain any part of the process that we wanted to better understand. What stands out about Sharon is that she didn’t simply help us buy or sell a home; she got to know us and supported our goals as if they were her own. She never forced her opinion, and was great at listening to our desires and helping us achieve what we wanted. We could not have asked for a smoother, easier, or more enjoyable experience of buying and selling our first home." - Peter and Katie Licari

"Five stars for Sharon Witte. Selling my home of 30+ years was a daunting prospect. A friend recommended Sharon, and, after interviewing five folk, I thought she was the most responsive, honest and caring one of the lot. She proved to be that and more, with a keen and experienced eye for the details of preparing and presenting the place. I knew I loved the house, but she made it look great, on-line, on paper and on land! She was sensitive to my idiosyncrasies about the house, gentle and patient with my ignorance about the market, and guided me through all the phases of the process, including the presentation of offers. This was a real eye-opener, as I was able to observe and appreciate her quiet, skillful negotiating up close. And I am now the grateful owner of a replacement property I didn't imagine might have been possible! So grateful to be so grateful." - MaryAnn Furda
