Sharyn is a real pro, she knows her business and can give you the details on her properties off the top of her head. She was a real asset for us when searching for a investment property. She was always responsive and would text or call me back most times within minutes. I would recommend her highly, she is a true real-estate professional.

We had such an awesome experience with Sharyn from day one. She met me to see a house the same day I emailed her. She understood what we wanted and never tried to show us anything we weren’t interested in. She always had our backs with negotiations and she may look sweet but she is tough when it comes to dealing with other realtors! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house! And if we ever need to buy a home again I would 100% use her!

KT Larue

Excellent in all aspects of her job. I would highly recommend for any of your buyer or selling needs. True professional. I was completely satisfied with the entire process from start to finish.

Sharyn is a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. She assisted my husband and I in the purchase of our “dream home.” She exhibited incredible patience and expertise throughout the entire process. Sharyn is extremely responsive, which is great for people who are going through the “joy” of buying and selling a house at the same time like we were.

I had complete confidence in abilities and guidance. She was a strong advocate for our needs and interests and never hesitated to offer much needed advice, reassurance, or action. We fully recommend her and believe her to truly be an expert in her field in this area. Thanks again!


Sharyn is by far one of the most talented, professional, caring people my wife and I have had the pleasure of working with. From day one Sharyn made it perfectly clear that she was going to do everything in her power to make sure that we had a pleasant home buying experience. I would recommend Sharyn to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.


Sharyn stuck with us through a long, difficult house search. We worked with her for five months, looked at about 30 properties, and made four offers. She is always available, returns calls and emails within a few minutes, and doesn’t mind working early in the morning or late at night.

Sharyn is a lifelong resident of Columbia County and knows the area, and other realtors, extremely well. Avoid the retired NYC transplant realtors who don’t understand how important the relationships are in our market, or you’ll miss the best properties. She also has strong relationships with local lenders, repair men, and other professionals in our area.

Sharyn was honest and helpful in our effort to properly value properties, even when it meant we walked away from a potential sale. There are a lot of homes listed for far more than they’re worth in our market, and Sharyn did a good job giving an opinion on appropriate comps. She pointed out potential inspection problems during our walkthroughs which saved us a lot of time and money.


Sharyn Richards Marks was one of the most wonderful Real Estate Agents I have ever had the pleasure of working with. From the moment my partner and I met Sharyn, she understood our needs/wants in our second home and worked diligently to deliver properties that matched our criteria. No matter how silly the question or concern, Sharyn always made us feel comfortable and found the answers. She has a wealth of knowledge and if she doesn’t know the answer- you can bet she knows someone that does! She was beyond patient when our mortgage company dropped the ball a few times regarding deadlines.


Sharyn helped me find my home and she couldn’t have been more professional. I was very specific with my needs, and she accommodated them in every respect in showing me options without wasting time. Emails and phone calls were replied to promptly no matter the time or day. Before finding my home, we engaged in a bid for another property and while I was very interested in it, she was very helpful in making a delineation on the highest bid we should make. I appreciated her very positive attitude while also being pragmatic and looking out for my best interests. I couldn’t recommend Sharyn more highly in your home search.


Sharyn Marks is the most knowledgable & competent real estate agent that we have had the privilege of knowing. We highly recommend her services to any buyer or seller in the area. She knows her customer well and totally focuses in on their wants & needs. She is also extremely pleasant to spend the day with. Bottom line is she found us our dream home!!!!


Sharyn Richards Marks is an outstanding agent to have on your team. Whether you’re looking to buy or sell, she is a genuine professional and she’s not afraid to put the time in that’s truly needed in today’s fickle housing market. She has an endless amount of resources and connections at her disposal to assist in giving the most accurate information needed in making such an important decision of buying and selling. Sharyn has always made herself available, even in short notice situations and she does so happily. You just can’t find service like this anymore! Thank you Sharyn for all your hard work!


Sharyn worked with us for over 6 months trying to find a home. We put offers in on two before settling on a third, which we closed on. She was fantastic with the first two, which were in foreclosure, and the bank was giving us a very hard time negotiating for them. After awhile, we made a decision to withdraw both offers, and finally found the home we had been waiting for! Sharyn has been excellent and patient throughout the whole process. I am a self proclaimed “handful” and she was great through every step of the process. Any time we needed her, she was there and almost immediately responsive. I have already recommended her to some colleagues just starting to look at the housing market in this area. She was upfront, honest, and told us immediately if she had any concerns when we were looking.


Sharyn helped my wife and I to purchase our first home. When we started this process, we didn’t know anything; we didn’t even know what questions to ask. However, Sharyn was wonderfully patient and maintained constant contact with us and made sure we understood what was happening every step of the way. Sharyn also advocated strongly in our favor so that we could get the best deal possible. For example, after the house inspection, she knew that some of the findings warranted a renegotiation of the price and, to our surprise, the homeowner agreed, saving us thousands of dollars. And, her efforts went beyond her role as a broker. The house we bought needed immediate attention in a number of different areas and Sharyn was there to recommend various contractors to help us and she gave us honest assessments of these individuals (this one will do it fast and cheap, this one will cost more but do a better job). By the end of the process, my wife and I had come to trust Sharyn completely. As a result, we strongly recommend Sharyn to anyone looking to buy a home.

Sharyn was extremely helpful in our search, patient and particularly helpful providing local contacts to make the transition to the region smooth.

William Geddes

Sharyn was super helpful and patient! She was well-organized on the day we viewed the properties and could answer all of our questions. We were extremely glad to work with her and look forward to being her neighbor in the area.

Jennifer Geddes

Sharyn was wonderful to work with! We were fairly unsure of what we were looking for in our first home purchase, and Sharyn was very helpful for us! She constantly put ‘feelers’ out and provided us with a lot of homes to look into. Sharyn always put our needs and desires first, and there was never any pressure to rush or spend more than we were comfortable. Working with Sharyn really helped to ease the confusing and challenging process for us. We are so thankful for her help and would strongly recommend her for anyone looking for home!

Jessie Alliger

We loved working with Sharyn. She worked hard to find us a home that suits us perfectly, and on our budget that was hard to do. She never minded spending her weekends going from house to house with us. Personable and upbeat but shrewd and decisive where it matters for her clients, she made the process enjoyable and pleasant. I trusted her wise advice and sought her input on most decisions. She went out of her way to include my daughter in the process and made her feel special. She’s even become a good friend of ours. For Columbia County real estate, there’s no one I would recommend more than Sharyn!

Audrey Gilbert

I highly recommend Sharyn Richards Marks as the perfect real estate agent. She truly listens, quickly responds to every question and request and creatively finds real estate that fits your needs. She is friendly, makes you feel comfortable and is honest about if the property would work for your needs. Our needs were a bit challenging. .and she took that challenge on. When the sellers of the home we chose did not quite match what we were able to do, she went above and beyond what is expected of your regular realtor. ..she found temporary housing for us, our dogs and even our horses…so while we still search for our perfect forever home with her…we know we met a friend and the perfect real estate agent to do so with.


Sharyn is a pleasure to work with. She took me to see many homes and was always on time, and is always happy to be showing and selling homes. We ultimately decided not to buy in the area.


This was my first time buying a home and I would not have been able to do it without the help and support of Sharyn. Sharyn guided me every step of the way by providing knowledge, support and guidance in all areas of the purchasing process. She knows the area very well and answered all my questions. Sharyn goes above and beyond to make a personal connection. This is not just a job for Sharyn, it’s truly a passion. I was very lucky to have Sharyn during this process.
