My partner and I had an incredible experience working with Sharon on the purchase of our new home. We were moving from Florida to New Mexico and had never been to New Mexico previously. Sharon spent the day with us looking at a variety of homes. She was extremely knowledgeable about the areas which would best welcome us. We looked at six homes, and placed an offer on one the following day and closed two weeks later. The entire process was drama-free and very pleasant actually. We found our dream home and could not be happier, and even better, we ended up with a friend for life. Thank you so much Sharon for everything!
Sharon at High Country Real Estate Services was a seasoned professional and helped guide me toward the home that in the end WAS the best choice for me on several fronts (even though I had been leaning toward a couple of others.) She was responsive and clear in her communication and in the end I trusted her guidance and have not looked back. She knew the builder and that they were reputable and that the "bones" of my now home were good. Now that I have finished a few projects on it that needed finishing, it really is the perfect home for me. I am SO glad I took her advice. And as she pointed out, my new home is in an established neighborhood with other friendly people. I would recommend High Country Real Estate to anyone. Sharon has strong opinions on some issues, but they are based on her knowledge of the market and she shares them with you to help educate you as a buyer or seller. I prefer someone with a spine who says what they think. I have dealt with a lot of real estate transactions in my life (and was a realtor myself for a period of time) and Sharon is the most professional Realtor I know. I have already seen a significant increase in value since I bought it less than a year ago as well. I have Sharon to thank for much of that! Rock solid.
Sharon provided outstanding services to us in the purchase of our home. She provided excellent information, responded timely to all requests, went the extra mile to make sure we found the home we wanted, and then worked very hard to complete the purchase. We could not be more pleased.
Sharon did an outstanding job in marketing my house which ended up selling in one day with a signed buyer contract! Her network of many listing services as well as her exceptional online home presentation skills were above and beyond any that I have ever encountered. Within two months of our initial meeting to sign a listing agreement, we finalized the paperwork and closed on the sale. During this period, she guided me through all the real estate protocol and outlined the specific paperwork requirements and made it all seem easy. She is a veteran of the business and very professional and I would highly recommend her for any real estate transactions.
Sharon is an ethical and efficient real estate broker who handled the sale of my property smoothly. We had a few bumps in the road, which she handled rapidly and effectively, which was important for me given that I am living in Texas and selling from a distance. She knows the local technicians well, who are as trustworthy as she is, and I had no worries at all. I would recommend her without any reservations.
Sharon is based in Taos but was also kind enough to help us find a house in Albuquerque. She is very knowledgeable in all the things you'd expect but also has "street smarts" about the pros and cons of neighborhoods, styles of homes, etc. And was especially effective in negotiating our deal. She has always been generous with her time and advice in the various years we consulted with her prior to actually making the move to New Mexico. And as an extra bonus, she is funny and opinionated which made for a very pleasurable home search experience.
Sharon responded punctually on every concern from the beginning of our real estate relationship. Her knowledge of the area is amazing for a Dallas girl! She negotiated professionally when necessary and knew every aspect of contemporary buying and selling residential property. Thank you, Sharon Bumpas Gilster and High Country!
It's not "highly likely" that we will recommend her: It's a DEFINITE!
We had pondered acquiring property in Taos for 15 years. When we decided to move forward High Country Real Estate was our first choice for representation and Sharon was thorough and professional and worked hard to close on the price we offered.
Sharon Gilster, with High Country Real Estate and Design Services of Taos, New Mexico is a highly energetic, focused and knowledgeable realtor. She recently helped me purchase a beautiful home just outside Taos. She listened carefully to my desires and helped my find a home that is just right for me. Additionally, she was representing the seller, and negotiated improvements to the property that helped me feel comfortable with the purchase.
Through her affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, she put me in contact with a realtor in Georgetown, Texas, who helped me sell my home in one day on the market and for the price I was asking.
I recomment Sharon without reservation.
I highly recommend Ms. Sharon. She is very knowledgeable about the New Mexico real estate laws and practices. Also, Sharon's knowledge of Taos and the surrounding area made me very comfortable. She helped this newbie is so many ways, from the start of the process on through to closing. I needed much "hand holding" as this was my first venture by myself buying real estate. Since it was a long distance transaction, i was very attuned to her advice. she gave me a very beautiful pastel of my property that i will hang in my new home. I fell I started with a real estate agent and ended with a friend.
