Sharon is an established real estate broker with a 20 year career in sales and marketing, real estate, and project management.

She has called Austin home since 1991 and earned her BBA at Texas State University where she was recruited into the High-Tech industry and she spent eight years working in marketing and customer account management with Fortune 500 companies.

In 2002, Sharon combined her customer relationship skills with her passion for real estate, and directed her focus on building a career doing something she has always loved. Sharon acquired her real estate license and began working with investors in the Austin market. Her network led to a 10 year career working with Austin’s first new home television show, HotOn! Homes, as well as the area’s most prominent homebuilders and land developers as a sales manager and marketing director. While Sharon’s primary focus was spent promoting new homes and communities, she continued to serve her personal clients in the resale market and property management.

In 2009 and 2010, Sharon’s expertise was recognized by industry leaders, and she was awarded the prestigious Marketing Professional of the Year award by the Homebuilders Association of Greater Austin. Sharon’s personal mantra is to continue to “raise your own bar”, and in 2011, she obtained her Texas broker’s license.

Sharon attributes her drive to a deep appreciation for hard work, focus, and dedication to her clients. Her knowledge in new construction, building technologies, and product development provides her with a wealth of information and leverage to help her clients make the right decisions for their real estate needs.

Sharon helped me buy my first house, and it was an incredibly seamless and professional experience. From our first meeting she listened, understood my goals and constraints, and was easy to work with to schedule tours and chat on nights and weekends about next steps. As a first-time buyer, she made the contract process easy to navigate, knew great local resources to help with the needs that came up along the way, and checked in every week to ensure I had the information I needed. Closing went smoothly and I'd recommend Sharon in a heartbeat to friends or folks considering a move to Austin. I don't plan to use anyone else.

My husband and I had very specific "must haves" requirements for the purchase of our new home. Sharon was extremely patient throughout the entire process! She is a very knowledgeable and honest Realtor. Sharon exceeded our expectations! My husband and I are so happy in our new home! I would recommend Sharon to my closest family and friends!

I worked with the fabulous Sharon Murray. She helped me get my dream home and was honestly invested in making sure that the deal and closing were as seamless as possible. She really is the best! If you are looking to buy your dream home, she is your person!

Sharon was beyond amazing. She was on top of things and took care of every step. It was amazing, and I am referring my neighbor to her who is selling his house also. I will continue to use her for my next purchases.

Sharon was amazing - so warm and helpful. She was a pleasure to work with. She was super flexible and accommodated my many requests to view the condo. She also had extensive knowledge of the housing market and had great furnishing and decorating recommendations. I'd recommend her to any friends who are in the market for housing.

I engaged Sharon to purchase a home and I grade her performance an A+ and here is why: I relocated back to Austin from working overseas and all 7 of the other family members were crammed into a small 2 bedroom apartment so I was in a big hurry. As I have spent many years working overseas on heavy overtime in developing countries, I also wanted a very nice place to live that I would be proud to call my home.

Day 1 - We spent 10 straight hours looking at houses.

Day 2 - We spent 8 straight hours looking at houses, then had a strategy conference in her office and selected my first choice to put an offer on a home. Sharon then called the listing agent and advised the particulars of the offer we would be submitting that night. Sharon then wrote the offer and sent it out at 11pm.

Day 3 - Counteroffer, counter counteroffer, and acceptance: Signed purchase contract 1:30pm. General and termite inspection arranged for day 4.

Day 4 - General and termite inspections performed with attendance by Sharon and I. I was impressed with the inspectors Sharon recommended. Inspection reports received 8pm. I reviewed and communicated my comments on the report and then Sharon reviewed my comments and we came to an agreement on what repairs we would request from the seller.

Day 5 - Early morning contract amendment sent to sellers agent to incorporate repairs. Afternoon negotiations and amendment signed in the evening (well ahead of the post-inspection deadline to terminate the contract at buyers option.

Remaining days thru close - Same level of support including coordination and attendance with my lender, title company, surveyors, sellers agents, home owners insurance.

Post closing: I was stuck in North Austin with furniture movers when Best Buy delivered a TV and Sharon zoomed over to my house and accepted the delivery on my behalf. Sharon also wrote a sublease to my sister-in-law at my new house (which is legit) so that my niece and nephew have the backup they need to establish residency for Lakeway ISD school enrollment. As a customer, I believe that the purchase of a home is a huge investment and worth doing right including doing all the research and homework needed. As a professional, I have worked on large scale commercial projects in Contracts Management, Planning, and Project Planning for over 25 years. Because of my work background, I treated my home purchase as a project. I have participated in projects with all types of results (from very successful to very substandard). In my experience, projects with a high prevalence of "A" team level people are the projects which succeed. Sharon is definitely "A" team. If you have read this long review, you may think I write a lot of reviews. I am 50 years old and I have written less than 5 reviews in my 50 years.

I am not a frequent participant in the real estate market and I would say a true neophyte. This made me quite vulnerable and fearful. I was truly blessed to have Sharon Murray as my Realtor. Her integrity is amazing. She goes the distance for her clients. I am a therapist and pretty intuitive; with that said, what I know about Sharon is that she truly cares about her clients, not just "the sale." She became my friend and confidant. I knew it helped her understand the sadness I felt as she sold my childhood home. What she may not know is how much her personality and open-heartedness saved me. She honored my feeling every step of the way. This is rare in all people and super rare in this kind of business.

She was willing to drive all over Austin, any time of day to meet with me. She would return calls all hours of the day, if that fit my schedule. I could go on and on. What I know is that if ever I needed the real estate agent, she is the only one I would choose. She is an asset to Realty Austin. I hope that your organization understands what a treasure you have in Sharon Murray.

I don't think there are enough words to describe how amazing Sharon is and how instrumental she was in our home closing. As first time home buyers we didn't know a lot and even worse we didn't know what we didn't know but Sharon was there every step of the way going above and beyond.

She came to design center meetings to help us, contract meetings to make sure we didn't agree to something that wasn't market, and when the builder went silent on us for over a month she went every week to take photos of the house progress to send to us while we were away.

Sharon was better than we could have ever hoped for and we will never use anybody but her for any/all sales as long as we are in Austin. We have already recommended Sharon to our friends - one of which just closed on a house with her back in May in our same community - and they were blown away with how amazing Sharon was as well (and this was not their first home buying experience).

Sharon made both my life and my wife's life so much less stressful while going through a lot of major life milestones (buying our first home, getting married, etc.) and we are incredibly grateful for that. She was not afraid to share her opinion as she knew we wanted it or, when we asked her for it, to be the "bad guy" on our behalf. We could continue on and on but for everyone's sake we will cut it short. Thank you for everything.

Sharon Murray recently handled our real estate needs to purchase a home in Austin. She is the most professional, thorough agent we have ever worked with!! When we first spoke, Sharon asked relevant questions, to understand our needs. Every SINGLE house she took us to was in the vicinity to what we were looking for. Once we settled on a home, during the rest of the process, Sharon was on top of everything and nothing slipped through the cracks. She was professional, diligent, organized and didn't mind being stern, with the builder, when necessary. We were so thrilled with Sharon's work, we introduced her to our daughter, who is buying her first home through Sharon! Obviously, I am a fan!

I have purchased many houses. I have never found an agent that is so understanding and honest like Sharon. In fact, I trusted her so much that the last three houses I purchased she was my agent. She is outstanding, has great attention to detail, and made sure I got the best deal out there.

I'm planning to purchase more houses in the future and she is the only agent I can trust and depend on for my real-estate needs. I can't ask for a better agent.

Sharon was a joy to work with! This was my first purchase and she made the process so easy. Sharon is very knowledgeable in both the practical considerations in buying a home as well as the technical construction details; I had absolute trust in her when looking at properties. I always felt that she was looking out for my best interest. She asked questions about and fought for things that I didn't even know to consider. We had to deal with an appraiser that didn't show up, a delay with a water tap, and some other things that pushed my closing back a bit. If it wasn't for Sharon I would have been frustrated, but she was on top of things before I even had to ask and really made it a great experience. Sharon was great about communicating and setting expectations. Sharon allowed me, a first time buyer, to feel confident and excited during the whole process.

We are in our mid sixties and during our working careers we have gone through the relocation process several times. We have dealt with many realtors and Sharon was by far the best realtor we have ever been in association with. She is a great communicator, she is caring, she is looking out for her clients best interest, and she is a very knowledgeable realtor so we felt comfortable that she was thorough with our contracts and other related issues. To sum it up, she is a professional and a pleasure to work with. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent in this area and if we were to need a realtor again we would not hesitate to enlist Sharon as our realtor, buying or selling. She definitely exceeded our expectations.

I have worked with Sharon on 2 home purchases and 1 sale. Sharon worked very hard and diligently for me on all transactions. I knew I could always count on her to assist me and look out for my very best interest.

Sharon showed us homes in the Austin area when we were going to be moving to Austin. As it turned out we did not move there, so we didn't actually go through the negotiation process with her, but she was excellent, responsive and professional during our time with her. I would highly recommend Sharon to you for your Real Estate needs.

Deborah B.

My family has contracted with Sharon Murray to buy two homes in the Georgetown area. She was amazing! We would not consider using anyone else. She is very knowledgeable about available properties, is patient and kind when asked to show MANY of them! Her knowledge of the whole process is unmatched and her attention to detail borders on perfection! I would recommend that you call Sharon for all your house/property buying needs. You won't find a more professional realtor.

Bobbi G.

Outstanding Agent. Sharon was prompt at answering questions thoroughly and would constantly keep us updated, even if there wasn't anything new to discuss just so we knew we were not forgotten about. We had a few bumps, almost roadblocks, in the road to buying our new home; however, she was very knowledgeable and did everything in her power to seal the deal for us! She is really down to Earth and makes you feel completely at ease. I do feel 100% confident in recommending her to anyone!

C.G.

Sharon is awesome! She listed our house for us and went to bat as far as negotiating the sale of our home. We even sold our house for a bit more than we were expecting and it was all because Sharon knew exactly what she was doing and what the fair market value for our home was. She was very prompt in coordinating all the paperwork and returned every phone call I made to her. I would highly recommend Sharon and will work with her in the future! She is great!

Lauren P.

Sharon is very professional and her attention to detail in a timely manner is one of her many strengths. I highly recommend Sharon for any of your Real Estate needs.

David P.

When we decided to move to Austin, we were at a loss as to where to begin to look for a house. We were very fortunate to contact Sharon. Her professionalism and expertise were invaluable as we were new to the area and needed guidance in choosing a neighborhood, assessing the value of the home, etc. Sharon was sensitive to our needs, helped us locate a beautiful neighborhood, and I found her local knowledge and expertise to be incredible. We were out-of-state buyers and that required more than just the typical realtor. Sharon was there for us during the process and went far beyond any of my expectations in helping us with the negotiations, inspections, and closing. Unfortunately, we have had to sell our home and return to Arizona. But fortunately for us Sharon was able to help us sell our home while we were out-of-state and once again handled all the negotiations, inspections, etc. without us having to return to Texas. We would highly recommend Sharon to anyone looking to purchase in the Austin area.

Don W.

Sharon knows the Austin and surrounding real estate market very well. The background information on schools, services, shopping and growth patterns for the respective areas she showed us gave us the information needed to purchase wisely. She listens to what her clients are looking for and delivers.
