Bought a home in 2012.

Our family is very happy for choosing to work with Sharon Otteman as our real estate agent in finding our new home. We appreciate her professionalism, friendliness and the way she helped us through the whole process. From our first phone conversation, through our first and subsequent meetings and all the way till the closing table, Sharon had our best interest at heart. She helped us stay within our budget and within the time frame that we had. She made sure to get to know what our priorities and needs were, so she could truly present us with options that worked best for us. We were relocating from out of state, so her friendly attitude, reliable communication, knowledge of the area and real estate market expertise really made a huge difference and gave us a lot of confidence when we were making our choice. Whatever questions or concerns we had, Sharon was there, whenever anything unexpected occurred, Sharon was there. She responded, she listened and she delivered on everything we asked for. If you are also in need of a reliable, trustworthy and hardworking realtor, who will genuinely watch out for you, then Sharon is your girl for the job! Thanks, Sharon!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 in Elgin, IL.

I knew Sharon from a co-worker at work and I would have to say that she did an amazing job for my husband and I! This was our first home purchase and she made the searching process very easy and fun. We were on a time crunch because our apartment lease was up for renewal and and we wanted to stop wasting our money. I believe we had about two months to find something. There was a time when I found some houses one morning and we were out looking at them that afternoon. She was also helpful in finding houses that she thought we would like. I would highly recommend Sharon. She is an amazing person and is such a blast to work with! Thank you!

Bought a home in 2011.

Sharon has helped me purchase three homes. My first condo was my first time buying, and she walked me through the process from start to finish. She really listened to me, and only showed my condos that met my requirements - a high rise with an outdoor pool, a balcony, a club room and close to the Metra. I know it was a tall order, but she found the perfect condo. Then, she really helped me to get financing and went to the closing with me. i was a nervous wreck, and it was nice to have her there.

My second purchase was a house, and I was looking for a place with a yard and in a good school district. Sharon not only found the perfect house, but she also helped me to compare school districts. She really went the extra mile with the negotiations. The owners were asking a bit much, given the market and some repairs that needed to be made. We were both ready to walk away and keep looking, but she was able to convince the owner's realtor to have one last chat with them. It worked, and like the time before, Sharon went to the closing. We also had a celebratory dinner!

The third condo I bought was an investment property, and again Sharon was fantastic. Financing took a lot of work from all of us, and required a lot of back and forth phone calls. Sharon was easy to get ahold of, and was alway pleasant and positive (even if I wasn't!). Eventually it all worked out.

I have recommended Sharon to many of my friends. In this tough market, you need an agent who is willing to go above and beyond for you. Sharon is that agent.

Showed home in 2012 in Forest River, Mount Prospect, IL 60056.

Sharon is very knowledgeable about the homes and the communities. It was nice and refreshing to have a real estate agent just be honest about the homes. It was nice of her to hear what I wanted in my home and accommodate my wants with the price we were willing to spend. She really works hard to make sure you are satisfied.
