“The property was in such bad shape that the decision point was whether to fix it up and sell or find an investor that would pay an "as is" price. Stacy provided net sheets for different scenarios along with comps for other properties in the area that helped me see clearly what I could possibly get for the property. This part of the process was invaluable for me in making the decision to first try to sell to an "as is" investor if possible. Thru the comps we were aware of such an investor who had bought a property nearby. The work done thru the comps and knowing the market seemed to help get the investor to come up a bit from his initial proposal. Stacy was invaluable thru this process.
Stacy provided useful information and wise counsel during the whole process. She knows how to negotiate as well. One of the more pleasant aspects of the interaction is that it is often like a partnership between her and I because I have do things and schedule things, not to mention I have thoughts and ideas as well. We worked very well together thru this. She lets you make the decision that needs to be made without coming on with a too strong point of view, but giving you advice in just the right fashion.
Can't say enough good things about Stacy in this regard. Selling this property was pretty stressful for me because of the shape it was in and the desire to sell it for a reasonably good price before the market changed. Stacy was a great person to share the experience with. ”

“I appreciated how Sharon Scarborough was willing to offer her opinions on properties. She was also quick to get back to me regarding questions that popped up during the entire home buying process and I felt supported by her throughout and never pressured. She was a good person to get feedback from which was important to me since I was buying the home for myself and by myself.
I was looking at a vast array of places in western maryland, so by no means did I expect her to know the communities from Hancock to Frederick. I appreciate her willingness to be so flexible with my range.”
Mike, Frederick MD (Buyer)
“From the moment Stacy came to look at my house she stepped right in giving us great suggestions on upgrades that would increase the value of the property. Every suggestion was right on the money.
Stacy did a fantastic job staging the property which lead to the sale in three days. Stacy is very professional and has a keen eye for furniture placement. Stacy was especially talented in order to make all spaces give the appearance of being larger. Stacy knew exactly what furniture to put where it would complement the surroundings.
Stacy was very professional, friendly, and accessible for each and every question we had during the entire sale process. Without her knowledgeable expertise we would have been lost. I would highly recommend Stacy Reno to my family and friends whether selling or buying property.
Thank you Century 21 for having such a talented member (Stacy Reno) on your staff and available to assist me during my sale.”
Connie Berry, Abingdon (Seller)

“For me it was important to have someone who was going to be helpful and had experience with first time home buyers. Going through the process I didn’t know what to expect and having someone there explaining every step was a big factor in my decision. Sharon did not disappoint. She was always there answering the many questions I had. She was always on top of things from scheduling a tour to scheduling inspections. I never felt like there wasn’t something I could ask about. Sharon made me feel comfortable with the process because she was always so personable. I really couldn’t have been more happy with her and her work. I will definitely be back in touch with her in the future. ”

“One of our relatives had recently purchased a house and we inquired about who they used which happened to be Sharon Scarborough. Our relatives had nothing but good things to say about Sharon and instead of having to shop around for a realtor we started with their suggestion and went with her and I'm glad we did. Sharon was very nice, friendly, and easy to talk to. She encouraged us to express our opinions and helped answer all of our question. Being first time home buyers there were a lot of unknowns of how everything worked and what to do. Sharon simplified all of that and helped smooth out the whole process of searching for and purchasing our home. I feel like there were little to no complications and just an enjoyable experience working with Sharon and finding our first home with her help.
A big thank you to Sharon Scarborough!!”

“Sharon Scarborough was highly and personally recommended by the Agent we used to sell our Maryland home. Sharon worked hard to find properties that met our criteria and drove many miles across south central Pennsylvania to help us narrow down our choice. She worked with the seller’s Agent to resolve issues and went the extra mile needed when the seller refused to handle repairs identified from the home inspection.
We did not regret our decision as Sharon helped us find the perfect home! ”
