    Thalia Anderen has endorsed your work as Realtor at William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty. 112709

    Dear Gun,
    I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

    Details of the Recommendation: "I first met Gun in 2006. As a 20-something year old, first time buyer, I feel very lucky to have been given Gun as a real estate agent. At that time, I knew NOTHING about buying a home and Gun really took the time to explain everything in ways I could understand. She was very patient with me and the limited amount I had to work with financially at that time. I felt that Gun treated me the same as she would with someone who was looking to buy a million dollar home. She was incredibly accessible day and night and made me feel I was the only one she was helping to find a home. Gun took all my needs into consideration, and worked very hard to find a suitable place for me, even when I had lost hope in the process. She was also very honest about the quality of certain homes, even if it meant she was not going to get a sale. One of the things I remember the most about Gun is the way she would get things moving along. I ran into numerous delays with various people along the way prior to closing, and if I ever talked to Gun about it, things were done within hours. She has that ability to be firm when necessary, yet warm and helpful the other times. I have referred several friends and clients to Gun and will use her again in a heartbeat should I need to sell and buy another home"

    Theresa hired you as a Real Estate Agent in 1999 and hired you more than once
    Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert

    “When we first moved to CT in 1999, Gun was the agent assigned to us. We were a corporate relocation and on a short timeframe. Gun helped us find just the right house and made the process very easy. When we moved again in 2006, we made the mistake of engaging another agent. Only after the house had not moved did we call Gun. Gun was wonderful. She helped us manage the sale of the house even though we were 3000 miles away. Gun is a consummate professional who gets results. And she likes dogs -- my kind of person.”

    Dear Mr. Tooker, Manager William Raveis Real Estate

    I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for being able to work with one of your agents, Gun Sharp.

    I have worked with Gun since 2003 when she helped me buy my first condo in downtown Stamford. Being a first time home buyer then, the process seemed somewhat daunting. Fortunately, Gun was there to guide me through the entire process. I realized then, for the first time, what capable hands I was in.

    More recently, when it came time to sell, I knew I wanted Gun to represent me. The real estate market had been especially challenging for sellers. But with Gun’s confidence, experience and superb negotiating skills we were able to sell at great price, within a week of the property being listed!
    This past May, my girlfriend, Kara and I decided to buy our first house together. I had no hesitation in suggesting that we work with Gun. Gun really helped us by warning us of potential reselling challenges associated with some of the properties we were considering. She found a variety of properties that fit our search criteria and we were quickly educated in what was available in our price range.


    When we found our new house, it was Gun’s guidance that gave us the confidence we needed in making the most important purchasing decision of our lives. Throughout the entire process, she covered all the necessary details and made sure that everything that needed to get done, was done, and on time.
    Kara and I have since moved in to our new dream house and we couldn’t be happier. We really appreciate the opportunity of working with Gun and when it’s time to find our next dream house we know who we will want on our team!

    Sincerely,

    Dan Updike

    As a first time homebuyer, I was daunted by what had to be done to purchase my home. However, Gun Sharp was my agent who helped me through the process every step of the way – from viewing the home to the closing process she ‘held my hand.’ She offered suggestions and provided piece of mind. Her knowledge, experience and caring were invaluable to me and my daughter.

    Gun was a godsend to my wife and me when we were looking for homes in the
    Stamford area. She was the first broker we worked with who actually
    listened to our home requirements, found what we were looking for, and then
    helped close the deal. Nine years later, we still look to Gun for advice to
    make sure our home remains in top quality for our own use and for when we sell. Thanks Gun!
