Lyndell M. sold a home in Los Altos

We have used The Sharp Team to sell two homes in Truckee, both located in Tahoe Donner. For both homes The Sharp Team was fantastic, and we received the asking price on the first property, and above asking price on the second property. In both instances, Janie, Kristi, and Rachel took control of the process and handled everything expertly. We had nothing to worry about, from the initial listing, walking us thru the disclosure documents, taking care of prepping the property, obtaining specialty help when needed, and making sure the closing documents were correct. We highly recommend using The Sharp Team.

Rambabu "bobby" Y. sold a home in Walnut Creek

I came across Janie in 2004 when I was looking to buy a home in Tahoe Donner. Janie was our agent then and showed us a good number of suitable homes and helped us zero in on one that worked for us. I was very happy with the prompt and professional way she handled the transaction. When I was thinking of selling that home in Feb. 2018, I called her to take a look at it and give me a proposal. She promptly visited the house and prepared a proposal with a possible listing price range and most likely selling price. We listed it on March 1st and within a week of listing the house, I had 3 offers. We actually ended up getting a bit more than our listing price. We closed within 6 weeks of listing it. Everything worked out perfectly. Her assistant also continuously followed up with me and took care of the house nicely while it was in listing. I would be glad to recommend Janie and the Sharp team without reservation. I would be glad to share my experience in a phone call if interested.

Rick B. sold a home in Discovery Bay

Very seldom do I use another broker to represent me as I am also a broker. If clients only knew what your team has to offer it would be a no-brainer to go with the expert in the area such as you Janie. Clearly an ultimate compliment to you and your staff. It would be unfortunate if any prospective client would choose not to utilize your expertise and extraordinary service. It's quite simple, go with the pro, get professional results. Thank you for continuing to make our deals appear seamless. Janie, you have earned the right to choose your clients. Thank you for choosing me.

Carolyn P. sold a home in Orinda

When we decided to sell our home, we spoke to a number of agents and were ultimately most impressed by Janie Sharp of the Sharp Team at Compass. Janies knowledge of the Tahoe- Truckee market trends, from historical, current and predicted perspectives, was outstanding. Janie has a personable, friendly demeanor and represented us well in the market. What we learned during the transaction, is that the team you hire is not only the agent, but also the support staff. The entire Sharp Team is helpful, courteous, professional and timely. The Sharp Team has served the community for many years and has excellent contacts. When we needed help, they were there. I cannot speak more highly of their professionalism and ability to follow through on every aspect of our sale. We strongly recommend the Sharp Team.

Suzanne M. sold a home in Davis

Janie Sharp along with Kristi and Rachael did a fabulous job of selling my house in Tahoe Donner. I previously listed with another agent/realtor in the area for about 6 months and got no offer. Janie and Kristi met me at the house after my previous listing had expired. I interviewed 3 different realtors. Janie and Kristi both had lots of really good ideas about how best to sell the house. Janie is a seasoned veteran with over 30 yr of selling houses in Tahoe Donner and the Truckee area. Kristi immediately knew how she wanted to stage the house. Sharp Realtor is a member of Compass so Janie had a excellent marketing plan. As soon as I signed with The Sharp Team in late January 2020, the house was staged and listed within about a week. I had a good offer on the house 7 days after I listed the house!e house and garage for the new buyer. Everything about the escrow went smoothly. I highly, highly recommend Janie Sharp, Kristi and Rachel, her team for selling property in Tahoe Donner.
