Who is Sharon Quataert? Sharon is a lifelong resident of the Rochester area. Sharon began her career in the Real Estate industry at age 21, and today – with over 30 years of experience behind her and a multi-million dollar producing company, she continues to assist the community with all of their real estate needs while focusing on client service through honesty, integrity, and professionalism.
“Bigger is not always better. Real estate at its very core is about building a relationship of mutual trust; it’s not about the company”. Sharon Quataert Realty has access to all of the latest technology, market trends, and community resources that are vital to the success of meeting and exceeding clients’ needs and expectations. Most importantly, she believes in offering a true one-on-one client-agent relationship; honest conversations with real people about what matters most to them. Where you live is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and Sharon Quataert Realty is ready to provide custom solutions for everyone.
Community is important to Sharon. She is a member of the Greece Chamber of Commerce, a volunteer with the Villa of Hope, and is an avid supporter of the Boys and Girls Club of Rochester. She has also served on several committees at the Greater Rochester Association of Realtors. She spends her spare time with family and friends as she enjoys entertaining. You can also find her enjoying dinner at the latest new restaurants and then attending the communities’ local theater productions.
Why choose real estate for a career? “I am passionate about helping people succeed and achieve their goals. Having a place to call home is a basic human necessity, and it’s my joy and privilege to help them discover the best fit. I may have built a successful career, but it has only been because of the beautiful relationships I have built with some tremendous human beings. I have the honor to call clients and colleagues.”
Sharon has been a NYS licensed Real Estate Broker since 1985, a Senior Real Estate Specialist, and a certified New Home Sales Professional who is consistently ranked in the top 5 of the Greater Rochester Real Estate Board. In the early 1980s, she was searching for a career that could fit her entrepreneurial spirit, energetic will to want to help people, and a career that challenged her drive to make a difference. All of her experiences since then have helped her grow as a person and professional. “My experiences ultimately led me to the very thing that inspired me from the beginning – my love to help buyers and sellers achieve the American dream!”
So, in 2015, Sharon Quataert Realty was open for business with a fantastic team of professionals – some of which are her very own children. “As a team, we are so grateful for the trust and confidence of our clients, customers, and community. We feel strongly about giving back, and make a donation to the charity of each customer’s choice with every transaction we make.”
“After over 3 decades in this industry, I have learned many truths. One of the most important is: work hard and be kind. Life and real estate are about making/having/maintaining relationships – treasure them.”
As proud as Sharon is of her success as a business owner, her business isn’t her greatest achievement in her eyes. “My greatest achievement, HANDS DOWN, is my family! My husband, Mike, and I have been married for 37 years. With that longevity comes ups, downs, and every zig-zag imaginable on the roller coaster of love and life. We have been blessed with a beautiful family; our son Brad, his wife Katie, and their two daughters, and our daughter Brittany and her husband Alex.
For fun they love to entertain, try every new restaurant, and strive to share new experiences on a regular basis. They love to travel (especially to beautiful beaches), but most of all, they love spending special moments with the people we care about most of all – each other.
