Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2014 in Truckee, CA.
It took me quite awhile to find the house I wanted, I definitely was a hard to please buyer. Janie and the Sharpe team stuck with me throughout and found the perfect place for me. Everyone was easy to work with, accommodating, professional and a pleasure to work with.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Truckee, CA.
I had a difficult situation in that I owed a lot of money on my property, did not have a whole lot of negotiating room as a result, but had to sell as my husband had died and I could no longer afford the house. Janie Sharp understood the situation and did not attempt to extort money out of a turnip (me) in order to close a deal. She advised other realtors of the facts when they indicated that they had buyers who were thinking of making an offer. I felt understaood and protected by Janie. She did not waste my time nor the time of others. Janie is a very forthright person who is empathetic to clients and understands the big picture. We finally sold the house -- just as Janie said we would -- and on terms that I could manage.
The hardest working realtors on the planet! We are builders and have sold many multi million dollar homes with them. The marketing they do is great and our houses have always sold with them within a months time if not weeks.

I interviewed 4 local real estate agents. I do believe I picked the best team in the Truckee area. When I wanted them to pay for staging, they found a way and made it happen. They were not afraid to put some "skin in the game". The market was just going soft a bit but they still got us a very near full price offer. Very happy with my pick.

Janie and her team helped us sell our Tahoe Donner house painlessly, in a timely fashion and at a great price. They took all the mystery and risk out of what could have been tedious process. Their suggestions on how to position and prepare our house was effective and insightful. I'd recommend them to any home buyer or seller in Truckee.

We interviewed four different agents before selecting Janie Sharp. We felt that Janie Sharp and her team have the most knowledge and the experience representing our house in Tahoe Donner area. Each member of her team has an expertise, which formed a strong team. But, you can always get to Janie Sharp for anything and she will get back to us promptly as a team leader. Janie and her team knew that our house is a special house with unique features and will take a buyer, who has the same unique taste. Although, we received offers, Janie guided us to reject and wait as she knew the better offers will come in. Sure enough, the right buyer offered the right price and we were happy with the final price we received for our house. Janie understood the market situation in our neighborhood and held firm about the price she felt we can get and in the end, we received the price, which was better than what we expected. And throughout the closing process, Janie and her team was outstanding every step of the way. If we ever were to buy another house in Tahoe Donner area again, we would definitely use Janie Sharp and her team again!

Kristi worked very well with us to help us sell our home in Lake Tahoe. She was compassionate about our situation and understood what we needed out of the sale. The market was not great at the time, and reading that market to price the house was probably the biggest challenge we faced. We had to adjust more than we would have liked given where we started. Once in the right range, though, we found a buyer, and Kristi was great at negotiating with the buyer and helping us through the process. As we were not local, Kristi's skills were a great asset to us. We appreciated her expertise and support.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $700K in Truckee, CA.
Outstanding! Janie and her team have a deep knowledge of the area and can often cite the individual history of a property from memory. We purchased two properties with her team and in both cases they were exceptional about looking out for our best interests. They are also not afraid to negotiate aggressively if necessary. Not only did they help us purchase a home, they were there to help us with furniture deliveries and referrals to local service providers after we closed. I strongly recommend working with Janie and her team.
