Meet Shara Parker: Respected business and life coach who now focuses her problem-solving skills to guide clients in making the best possible real estate decisions. Shara is like a magnet for everything that is positive about life and success. Her highest goal – to always exceed her client’s expectations and to earn the right to become their trusted real estate advisor for life. An Austin resident since 1977, Shara Parker is on of the most knowledgeable Realtors® in Texas’ Capital City. Shara utilizes nearly four decades of local knowledge to help homebuyers and sellers navigate Austin’s real estate market. “Austin is unique. It is an incredibly ‘niche-driven’ City with a quality lifestyle for everyone.” With a strong knowledge of demographics, growth trends and neighborhood lifestyles, Shara is able to target the right Buyers for your home or buying areas for each client. “I have a unique talent for helping people find the area that best fits their lifestyle.”

Using her experience as an International business owner and life coach, Shara leads her clients by first listening to their story. She excels at helping Buyers and Sellers define and prioritize their lifestyle needs. Shara focuses on their short and long-range goals, identifying their “wants” and “needs” and coaches them through the entire process. Her techniques result in quickly finding the right home for Buyers and fewer days on market for Sellers. She has learned how to lead others, to understand what their dreams are and to help make those dreams a reality. Prior to Real Estate, Shara enjoyed a successful career in Fine Jewelry sales and design achieving awards for top sales and management. Her passion led her to dive into the Health and Wellness industry where she accomplished a decade of International expansion before she fell in love with Real Estate rehabbing and investing. Shara transitioned to the real estate industry in 2005. Impressively, she sold more than $50 million in real estate in the first eight years of her career, which she attributes to her ability to understand both her clients and the market. Her goal is to become a life-long trusted real estate advisor, and not to just collect commission from one transaction.

Shara’s extensive experience as a Real Estate investor and renovating homes gives her clients an edge. “I have always had a keen instinct for predicting areas of growth and neighborhoods that I believe will appreciate rapidly,” explains Shara. “I pair that with strong negotiating skill to bring maximum value to my Buyers.” Finally, Shara employs a unique and in-depth due diligence process to help her clients uncover hidden problems and potentially save thousands of dollars in negotiation.

Working with Sellers who are considering listing their home is a real passion of Shara’s, who considers a home the largest investment a person makes in their lifetime, and needs to be evaluated as an asset when preparing to sell. “I once had a client whose luxury home had been on the market for a year and a half with his previous agent,” Shara remembers. “I staged the home, took the proper photographs to really reflect the lifestyle of the property and sold at full price in 33 days.” Shara has worked with sellers to prepare their home and market it selling within one day while competitive houses in the neighborhood remained on the market for months.

The adventurous, entrepreneurial spirit of her upbringing has profoundly shaped Shara’s career path. Her move to Austin as a child gave her a real appreciation of why so many choose to call Austin home. “I feel like I’m part of this city and this city is part of me,” says Shara. Austin is home to Shara and her husband Mark. Shara loves spending time with her grandchildren sharing all of Austin’s wonderful treasures. She is deeply committed to her faith and local church, supports local charities and 2 International orphanages, is passionate about travel and family-oriented. “I love getting to know my clients. By the end of the transaction, I feel like I have new friends and an extended family.”

Shara is a top notch realtor and knows her stuff. She is very friendly and patient in helping to guide someone trying to sell their house and gauging how much to spend in order to get close to maximum sell value. Shara was referred to me by my close friend for whom Shara helped to sell his house in West Lake.
