WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
"Sharon was a true advocate for us from the moment we met her and became a friend in the process always looking out for our best interest. She was always real and upfront with us but made sure we didn't settle for just any house to start our family in."
Molly and Zach
"During a period of low inventory and high demand Sharon was instrumental in helping me find my dream home. This was my first time buying a home but she made me feel secure and explained to me each step of the process so it was never overwhelming. Since I am a single woman I especially appreciated these qualities.
Sharon is a careful listener, knowledgeable, a keen strategist, and a heavy lifter when needed. She also provides a website that will alert you the moment listings open up, and she also provides listings from the newspaper. (Not all sellers use the internet.)
Sharon also comes with very special bonuses -- she is honest to a fault, warm, and actually cares about the world and what she can do to make it a better place. She is not your typical realtor. You will love working with her. I can not rave about her enough!"
"As a Property Virgin, I was a little nervous and apprehensive, but I felt very comfortable with Sharon Alva. Sharon is honest, motivated and takes your needs in the utmost consideration.
"Sharon took care of us like a good mom. She guided us along on this adventure of not only selling our condo but buying a new home - going above and beyond to prepare the condo for sale, from communicating with and booking the painting, carpeting and staging, to making sure the condo was looking its best. The marketing for the sale was top notch, a beautiful printed brochure and hip and stylish website, with social media boost!
When it was time for us to really have laser focus on buying a house she was patient and flexible taking us to multiple homes until we found "the one". She was there through the whole process with helpful advise and a steady hand."
" Sharon is extremely knowledgeable about the market, homes and neighborhoods in the entire East Bay. She helped guide us to areas that fit our needs and budget and took us to visit homes for sale when we couldn't make it to an open house. Sharon was very, very helpful in staging our house for sale, getting professional photography, and marketing it to get a sale price that was much higher than we expected. She even purchased pillows and rugs to give our house that little "something" that would help impress prospective buyers. We are so very happy with the result of our newest home purchase!"

"I worked with Sharon to sell my condo in Alameda. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. She explained the whole process to me and made the whole process painless. I would recommend her to a friend."
- Ayong G.
" We made 8 offers over a year and a half of house hunting. Sharon was patient with our finicky and budget conscious approach and could have easily said to us, "You are never going to get a house in this market if you keep bidding with this strategy. Thanks Sharon!"
