We purchased a home in September and Patrick and Julie were our buyers' agents. We researched local real estate agents and were very impressed with their website and their description of themselves and their approach to assisting clients. From our very first meeting with them, we knew we had chosen the perfect realtors to work with. They are professional, knowledgeable and experienced, and at the same time they are very relaxed, comfortable and fun to work with. They are both excellent listeners, are very attuned to what you want and do not want in a home. They always notified us immediately as soon as a home in our targeted neighborhood came on the market, and Julie patiently looked at several with us until the perfect one for us was listed. Julie got us in to look at the house very quickly and ours was the first offer in. It turns out that there were multiple competitive offers, and Julie expertly advised us on a strategy that resulted in us being the successful bidder. We enjoyed working with both Julie and Patrick and highly recommend them. And we appreciate the fact that the McSharrys donate a portion of their proceeds from the transaction to a local charity and that we were given the opportunity to choose the recipient. Thank you Julie and Patrick for making our home buying experience a pleasant one!Aileen and Doug, Glenmont
My husband and I are first time home buyers - Patrick and Julie were the perfect agents to work with.
When my husband first met Patrick, he could not emphasize how friendly, approachable he was. Patrick and Julie were never pushy with us. They only offered guidance and honesty. They were always willing to meet us anytime and in a very efficient manner. Responses to phone calls and emails were immediate.
As we went through the home purchasing process, anytime we had a question about anything - from mortgage lenders even to contractors, house cleaners, we always felt comfortable asking them and always trusted their recommendations.
They are such lovely people; we would recommend them over and over again without hesitation as real estate agentsLynn and Jacob, Delmar
Patrick and Julie helped us find and purchase our very first home. They were absolutely amazing to work with. Both of them are very knowledgeable, personable, and above all else, HONEST! They will not convince you to buy just any old home. They will honestly point out the positives and negatives of each home and give you their recommendations. They are also very helpful during negotiations and do their best to get you a great deal. I would recommend McSharry and Associates to anyone and everyone! It was such a pleasure working with them!Kaitlyn, Albany
McSharry & Associates were the best decision I made this past summer of 2016 when I sold and bought homes in the Albany area. With the arduous and all-consuming process of selling/buying, Patrick and Julie were the perfect fit for me. They provided unfailing professionalism, advice and support from start to finish; always available to answer my questions or follow through on a request. If you’re looking for individualized attention you will get it with McSharry & Associates. You get two experts working for you 24/7, taking care of all the details. I must say too that they produced a classy listing of my home … a sharp virtual tour with voice-over section and beautifully crafted pictures. Their efforts go above and beyond other real estate companies- just take a look and compare. I can’t thank them enough and I’m in the home of my dreams!Meredith, Albany
"Patrick was very responsive to every query and question I had. He promptly answered every email, text or phone call. I was shown a number of homes and kept revising my wants and needs. Through it all, Patrick and Julie reassured me that I would find the right house at the right price. I did. Then they helped me through the home buying process step by step. They explained forms, deadlines and things I could do to make sure the process ran as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend McSharry and Associates to anyone in the home selling or home buying market."Tammy, Albany
Patrick and Julie were recommended by a co-worker who couldn't sell her house for over 6 months with a different broker and who got it under the contract after 2 days of working with McSharry and Associates. This was a wonderful recommendation and with their help we found our new home in a great neighborhood and in our price range. From the very beginning they've been focused on what We were looking for while another respectable broker started with the words "OK, let me explain how we get paid..." We were not pressured into signing an exclusive representation agreement, nor did they persuade us into buying a more expensive house. Patrick and Julie have been patient, attentive, resourceful, and very pleasant. They accommodated to our busy schedule doing evening and weekend showings. Overall, while the experience of house shopping is intrinsically stressful, Patrick and Julie made it as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Professional and knowledgeable, they'd offer us good advice as well as emotional support and reassurance. We would strongly recommend them to friends or family.Victoria and Igor, Loudonville
Working with Patrick and Julie was a great experience. They were always ready to answer any questions or concerns and solve them together. Very knowledgeable on the Bethlehem market. Helped me sell my home quickly. Genuine nice people and a pleasure to work with.Lisa, Glenmont
"We went to McSharry and Associates with a specific house we knew would be hitting the market soon and wanted to be ready to make a bid in the current fast-to-sell market. While we waited for that house to be listed Patrick and his wife Julie sat down with us and explained the process and best strategy for us to make a competitive and reasonable offer. They also sent us other listings during this time and went on about 4 other house showings knowing we'd probably wait to make an offer on our desired house. They did not seem bothered by showing us homes we'd probably not bid on. They wanted us to see what else was on the market and at different price points so if we didn't get "the" house we would not feel defeated. And thankfully they did that because we were out bid on the original house! We were upset about the loss but we were reassured by Patrick and Julie that we bid appropriately and that we'd find our home. And we did! Just a few months later we found the perfect home for our small family of 3 that fit comfortably in our budget and fulfilled many of the amenities we were looking for. They both we were with us step by step in the showing, bidding, inspection and closing process. And to top it off they are both down to earth, reasonable, knowledgeable and a fun couple to work with during a could-be stressful time. We will recommend them to everyone we know!"Laura and Peter, Delmar
I have worked with Patrick McSharry over the years to purchase two homes. He is a knowledgeable and responsive real estate agent who is very easy to work with. As a buyer, I appreciate that he is not high-pressure, yet provides information to make an educated decision. For my last purchase experience I had a very stressful situation earlier in the search process with an unscrupulous seller real estate agent. Patrick advocated for me and was very helpful in assisting and supporting me throughout that situation. I am glad to have had him as my agent esp. during that time. In sum, I find him to be very informative, supportive and trustworthy, which are key qualities for me in a real estate agent.Lynn, Troy
We were out-of-towners looking to buy a house on a tight schedule. Patrick and Julie were amazing at helping us learn about the area and narrow down our choices. They were always quick to respond and very patient with all of our questions and requests for showings. In the end, they helped us get the perfect house (one that was so popular that we would not have even gotten a bid in without their guidance). We will definitely be recommending them to others in the future!Sam and Matt, Delmar
