Sharon has been a resident of Northern Virginia for 24 years and specializes in selling and purchasing RESIDENTIAL Homes, LUXURY Homes, and FARM & EQUESTRIAN Properties. Her experience in architecture and farming brings a unique foundation from which to serve her clients. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in graphic design and subsequently earned a Master of Architecture degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, one of the top-rated architecture schools in the country. Upon moving to Northern Virginia, she worked for an architecture firm in Fairfax, designing luxury residential homes.
Although she thoroughly enjoyed working in architecture and design, she decided to pursue her love of animals and owned a 185-acre farm in Western Loudoun. She owned and operated a large equestrian facility, with up to 54 boarded horses, prior to converting it to an alpaca farm. She ran the day-to-day operations of her alpaca farm for fourteen years, developing a nationally recognized breeding program with over 250 alpacas at the height of its success. She has a special knowledge and appreciation of local farmland and the beautiful barns and equestrian properties that Northern Virginia has to offer.
The sale of her farm led to her real estate career and she is passionate about helping people solve their real estate needs. Sharon has experience with luxury home sales, residential home design, farm and equestrian property sales, farm layout and design, custom builders, new construction, land development, land sales and purchases, property management and commercial real estate. She works with sellers, buyers, and investors in the Northern Virginia area and has referral partners globally. Sharonís client-centric approach thrives on trust and long-term relationships, with most of her client portfolio built on repeat business.

Sharon Brown was very patient with us as we had to finalize a legal document before being able to list the property. She stayed in contact with me but never pushed to get the property on the market as soon as possible. Sharon also kept an eye on the market and recommended increasing the asking price from what we originally agreed upon. This turned out to be a terrific recommendation as we were able to sell the property in three days at an amount exceeding the new asking price.
I found Sharon to be very professional with a great grasp of the market. She was very active in the pre-sale activity which I'm sure was a great help to the quick sale. Sharon also provided recommendations on a couple of things that we needed to do before listing the property which were outside the scope of her work.
I will definitely use Sharon for future real estate needs, whether it be for purchase or sale, as she showed her professional capability, knowledge of the market and understanding of our needs while being readily available and easy to work with.
The entire process was easy from start to finish with Sharon managing the sale. She brilliantly negotiated with multiple offers to do what was best for me. It was a wonderful experience.
Sharon guided us through the process and was available for any question 24x7.
One of my friends recommended Sharon to me although I had 2 agents before her and would hire the 3rd, and all of them did not do a good job at all. When my friend strongly recommended Sharon to me, I said I will try because I trust my friend. Once I met with Sharon, I had great expectations and knew immediately she is different in everything, detailed person, knowledgeable, her personality is amazing, her plans, her thinking, her following up, her commitments, her availability that I felt I am the only client for her and I know she has other clients which made me feel she is available for me 24/7 awesome, her reaction in absorbing any tension I had, her hard working that she is interested to do things right, unlimited help in everything, her advices, her recommendations, if I list everything I will write pages and pages, in short Sharon makes everyone fall in love with her for her professional work and her personality. Let me just stop here and say my home was not a normal sale, my home was expensive home with 3 huge challenges: old street and neighborhood, adjacent to toll road fence, adjacent to huge power line and all previous agents failed to find a plan to implement to sell this home but Sharon. I honestly feel so happy knowing Sharon, more than my happiness selling the home because knowing a wonderful person like her in these days is a treasure. Finally, I was advised to use Sharon, I will advise everyone to use Sharon because she is worth anyoneís trust.
Sharon Brown had a challenging task in selling two houses in our green community with exceptionally well-designed custom houses that other realtors had been unable to distinguish price-wise from tract, like-sized homes in the area. Sharon, however, was able to articulate and sell the specialness of these homes and restore their deserved value. She did so using her exceptional knowledge of architecture, her command of real estate in the area, and her savvy marketing expertise. We consider ourselves very fortunate that we found Sharon and couldn't be happier with every aspect of the sale of our house with Sharon as our listing agent.
From our first interaction, Sharon showed her professionalism and expert knowledge of the market. During the search for a suitable property, she always offered the perfect options. Sharon was very supportive and helpful with every aspect related to the deal, such as communication with the local government, explanation of land use, and more. Sharon became a friend of our company, and we will always come back for her services and will recommend her to our friends and partners.
We selected Sharon because we own a farm, and it is complicated to move animals, make sure the infrastructure is worthy and still get a nice place to live. She understood. She never pushed us toward a property or rushed us. She allowed the decision to come naturally and advised us with non-bias pros and cons of each property.
Sharon was able to very clearly outline what was going to happen after the contract was ratified, when it would happen, who would be involved and what it would do to our costs. She kept track of every detail and followed up with 3rd parties and provided updates frequently to us which reduced our anxiety. She managed the inspections and repairs, the title agent, the seller agent, contract reviews — including actually reading them and putting them in laymen terms. She negotiated our purchase, including securing nonstandard purchase terms in our favor.
Sharon was 100% in our camp. She demonstrated the level that all PROFESSIONAL agents should meet. We were important to her and it felt that way. I knew Sharon previously as a business owner and knew she could be tough to negotiate with, kept good records but was also caring and had empathy. These skills have transitioned well into real estate where she negotiated a complicated deal that fit our financial goals and was on top of every detail throughout the process.
Overall, Sharon was great. She understood our goals and desires. She provided real estate advisory services related to the market. She made things simple, which is really important when contemplating moving. She negotiated well. She managed the process. Being a realtor is much more than finding the buyer a house. It's about closing the deal and managing the details that come after the contract is ratified. Sharon was excellent at that.
Sharon is a genuine person who has your best interest in mind. Patient, kind and caring. She understands the needs of a buyer and can find that perfect home for you. Her attention to detail is impeccable. Unmatched.
Sharon has been a tremendous blessing, both in purchasing and selling. We will use her again when we buy again... her knowledge and willingness to give input is invaluable, her genuine concern for our needs shines through, and her attention to every detail makes Sharon Brown a superstar in the real estate industry.
Sharon took charge of everything and made the process so seamless for me. She handled every aspect of the sale and communicated with me throughout the entire process. I always knew what was happening and what was next. My house sold in one day!
She's simply the best. There are not enough positive adjectives to describe her performance.
Sharon is an outstanding and unique individual with high-level expertise as a realtor with architectural expertise. Her excellent design, planning, marketing and social skills combine to create a winning scenario for all involved. My wife and I would recommend her to anyone interested in superlative service.
It's a great pleasure to work with Sharon. My wife and I have also engaged her to sell four large lots.
