As a Certified HAFA Short Sale Specialist, Sher has successfully closed many short sale and REO transactions. Her repeat business is a testament to her high integrity, her likable disposition, and her professionalism. Sher is a dynamic, New York City educated, highly efficient professional. Her ability to listen, to understand the difference between a clients needs and wants and to multi-task with high efficiency, allows her to focus her attention on her clients, follow through with their agenda, and maintain the highest integrity. Sher's engaging personality, positive attitude, commitment and intelligence is the magic potion. Sher is proud of her vast professional network of industry contacts and relationships. Sher is passionate about real estate, and loves to use her diverse talents to see her clients dreams come true.

Read Sher's personal message:

Every time I close a sale, my clients have the same comment: I never knew how hard an agent had to work to bring a sale to closing. Clients don't realize what goes on AFTER you enter into a contract. I work every single day until an escrow closes. All of my clients say the same thing about me. I am diligent, and tenacious. I watch out very carefully for my clients, and make sure that everything is going according to plan during the escrow. Of course, humans make mistakes, but I am very experienced, and KNOW when to ask for help if something comes up that needs further attention. One small mistake on the part of your agent can cost you a few thousand dollars, or the collapse of the entire deal.

Choosing an agent isn't about how much you may like them. It's about choosing someone who you trust to have your back, and YOUR best interest in mind at all times. I am a very good negotiator, and more importantly making sure everyone stays cool, calm and collected. Please review my testimonials, as they will convince you that you have found your "Agent for Life." I live and breathe real estate!

I would love to speak with you more about your real estate needs. Once you meet me you will immediately see that I not only know what I'm doing, but I do it very well. I am looking forward to working with you on the most important transaction of your life.

Very Truly Yours,

Sher Sheldon
