Reminiscent of an old tongue-twister about a peck of peppers, Sharyn Short learned a phrase many years ago that she took to heart and it guides her in all that she does, most particularly as pertains to real estate – “Prior Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance.”

Sharyn works hard to ensure that neither she nor her clients are ever unprepared for the kinds of surprises that might come up in a real estate transaction.

With a BBA in Marketing from the University of Texas at Austin, she previously enjoyed a successful career in the pharmaceutical and medical sales industry. She kept a very busy calendar, was well organized and very responsive to her clients’ needs.

As a native Houstonian, she is very familiar with many areas of Houston. She has purchased 5 homes in her lifetime- 2 as a relocated employee, 2 as investment properties and one in which she currently lives with her family. She has hired tradesman and knows firsthand the importance of staying on top of what is happening and looking after all details. The experience also opened her up to envision the opportunities and potential that exist in properties that others might not see.

Sharyn truly enjoys people and helping them achieve their dreams of home ownership. She is a good listener and is detail oriented. These attributes allow her to smoothly guide clients through the process of buying and selling.

Sharyn and her husband, Joe, are raising two daughters and they have been growing their family traditions and strong roots in their own neighborhood for the past 15 years. Very active in her community, she is a member of the Memorial Forest Civic Club, Inc. where she was a past President and member of its board; Memorial Forest Women’s Club past president; current board member of the Memorial Forest Club; current and past member of the PTA’s at Frostwood Elementary, Memorial Middle, and Memorial High School. She is also an active member of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church.

Sharyn enjoys playing tennis and watching her daughters play volleyball.

I have worked with many realtors buying and selling 8 homes in my life, and none have been more pleasant to work with than Sharyn. She patiently showed me home after home with a critical eye as if she were considering them for herself. She is observant and knowledgeable about home construction details, often noticing things both positive and negative that I did not. I never felt that she was pushing a property for the sake of closing the deal. It was clear that she was willing to take as long as needed to find just the right property for me. She was always responsive and able to make time in her schedule for short notice showings. In the rare occasion that she did not know the answer to a question, she diligently followed-up in search of a thorough answer. Even after the sale, she is regularly in touch, offering her guidance and support. I highly recommend Sharyn Short.

Sharyn was fantastic - true professional and handled every detail flawlessly. Her marketing sold this property within days of coming on the market and she was there till the deal was closed. Great job!

Sharyn was great! I was a first time home buyer using a VA loan and Sharyn was there to help me every step of the way. She was always very quick to respond to calls/texts which means a lot to me. Sharyn always made time to show us homes even when we didn't give her advance notice. She took the time to answer our questions, educate us on the home buying process and she was patient with me and my wife - which was not easy sometimes! She never pressured me into making a decision and was very helpful when it came to negotiating. I will recommend Sharyn to family and friends.

Sharyn Short was great! She was professional, inspired confidence and removed any uncertainty along the way. She worked tirelessly to market my home with professional photography for brochures and on-line media. Sharyn was always responsive answering any questions I had along the way and provided the information necessary to aid during the decision making process. I appreciate her sincere manner and ability that made selling my home of over 20 years a pleasant experience. She did a great job!!!

We had a wonderful experience with our Realtor, Sharyn Short. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable. She also made sure she spent extra time to explain everything to us throughout the process. She went well above our expectations in working extra time and responding any time day or night. Additionally, despite the slowing market conditions, Sharyn made a substantial effort and spent a considerable amount of her time showing our property including holding numerous open houses. During difficult negotiations, Sharyn remained calm and patient and represented us professionally and effectively. We would highly recommend Sharyn Short to anyone looking to sell their property. She is absolutely professional, hardworking, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job. We felt very strongly that she valued us as a client and every interaction we had was professional and respectful.

Sharyn's professionalism and integrity are beyond reproach. She took the time to learn about me and my family, on a personal level, so she could find the optimal home in the current market for us. She is empathetic and patient with her clients. She also knows that buying a home is a big deal for her clients, and is responsive to late night questions that are keeping you up. Sharyn is a worker, and a huge asset to have on your team.

Sharyn kind and friendly. She is also quick to respond, which is a very important trait in the fast market we were in, and can be hard to find in real estate professionals. She had confidence when we did not helping us move forward. Once our off the wall needs were clearly understood, Sharyn went out of her way to accommodate us.
