Client Testimonials

Karen and Greg just sold my house in Nevada City. I highly recommend them because they are ethical, competent, easy to work with, client focused, and interesting people. They really know the local market. They have lived in the area for decades and know everyone. Their client base is extensive. They knew who may be interested in my house and they were spot-on with their judgement. Sold quickly and the new owners are happy. I'm happy. When escrow was imminent and I was having trouble emptying my house (downsizing) they found people to take my bed and desk. Then they hauled away my old couch and misc junk items. WAY above and beyond my expectations. I would use them again if circumstances led me to buy or sell property.

Greg and Karen Sharp are wonderful realtors. We used them to both sell our previous home and buy our new home. Not only do they have years of experience behind them, they are really nice to work with as well. They were extremely helpful with it came to "staging" our home with great easy suggestions to make it more marketable. We always had questions and I could reach out to either of them and one of them if not both would respond in a very short amount of time. We never felt like we were left "hanging" waiting for a response. That was really important to us.Greg was very realistic about the pricing of our home and didn't over or under price it. It sold within 60 days.They also helped us find a new home and they were very available to find us a new place. They went above and beyond when it came to working out issues with the seller of our new home that we purchased.Greg was great about updating us as sellers and buyers we were able to close both properties on the same day fairly seamlessly.We would highly recommend Greg and Karen. They are easy to work with and will get the job done! They are experts in their field.

I recommend Karen and Greg Sharp as amazing real estate agents.They worked with me, a novice seller, and helped me through every step of the complex process. Amazing communication, always available, and they held my hand throughout.Greg's knowledge of the market ended up with us having a bidding war for our house -- without his expertise in marketing my house, we wouldn't have gotten our amazing price. They told us how to make the house look its best, hired an amazing photographer, and helped us communicate all of the best points about our home. I'll use them to buy and sell any future properties, without question!

This is a letter of reference for Greg and Karen Sharp of Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty as real estate brokers. I was the trustee of my parent’s estate and Greg and Karen represented our family in the sale of their home on Gochine Drive outside of Nevada City. There were some complications in this sale as there was a need for significant repairs to be done as we were getting the home ready for the market. They were caring and understanding of our family’s feelings and were very patient throughout the process. They made sure we were aware of our options. Greg was always very prepared and was very up to date on the market and the competition. He made sure to communicate on a regular basis. I have never known a realtor who communicates as much as Greg. Greg was always willing to take my calls and answer any questions I had during the transaction.If you are considering selling a property in Nevada County and you choose Greg and Karen to represent you, I can assure you that will be in good hands.

I called them because I was impressed with Greg’s data driven approach, I was in Massachusetts during the entire time of the sale of my home in Nevada City. Karen and Greg exceeded my expectations by getting painters, landscapers and inspectors to get the house ready. I never wondered what was happening because of their excellent communication I couldn’t recommend them more .Diane Seltzer
