Our relationship with McSharry and Associates began when we were interested in a house they had listed, they invited us over to discuss the house hunting process (it being our first home purchase). Prepared to be sold their services, we were pleasantly surprised not only by how prepared and thorough they were, but also by the lack of pressure we felt to use their services. This was a theme that would continue for the course of our relationship.
They provided information and were responsive and available at any and all hours to do anything from answering emails to arranging showings. When we made an offer, the paperwork was completed and submitted within hours. They advised and provided information but never judged, never told we were wrong, and simply allowed us to make decisions based on what they provided. I cannot overstate how comfortable we felt throughout the process.
We are now prepared to close and move into our new home. I would recommend McSharry and Associates especially to first time buyers, but to anyone who finds themselves in the market for a home.John and Rosalie, Delmar
Patrick & Julie helped my wife and I buy our first home in 2014 and helped us sell it two years later when life plans prompted an earlier than expected move. They did a great job of introducing us to the process, guiding us through each step, and helping us reach our goals. They are very knowledgeable and professional, and they know the area well. But they are also very personable and fun to work, and they invested a lot in getting to know us. We were very sad we couldn't take them to the Midwest to help us find our next house! Can't recommend McSharry and Associates enough!David and Mary, formerly of Selkirk
It was wonderful working with Julie and Patrick. They are like a well oiled machine, each with strengths that produce a final product for the home searcher and seller. Julie worked with us for over 2 years to find that "perfect home" and cautioned us not to settle until it felt right. Once we found the right house, Patrick stepped in and worked on the finer details of buying and selling. We sold our home in 48 hours thanks to the great advice we were given by Patrick and Julie. It was great working with a small local firm that knows this area well and the people who live in it!Eileen, Slingerlands
We had a really tough process, but it was entirely due to bad luck or irrational sellers. We offered on a number of homes with little luck and ultimately went under contract at one home. After the seller refused our reasonable requests for credit to deal with major structural issues, Patrick and Julie worked with us as we sought other options. We eventually found the perfect place in the perfect neighborhood! Buying a home is a trying, stressful process. Having a steady and experienced agent is the only way to stay sane and end up with the best outcome possible. Without Patrick and Julie's help, I'm confident we'd be renting another year or more. Their willingness to meet us at homes at odd times and on short notice, their knowledge of the Delmar housing market, and their deep knowledge of the process of purchasing a home made us feel more comfortable with one of the most important decisions of our lives. We cannot recommend McSharry & Associates highly enough!Jack and Lauren, Delmar
Working with McSharry and Associates to buy and sell our home was a great experience. They did a really nice job marketing our home to potential buyers and were able to sell our house in one day. Patrick and Julie really took the time to get to know exactly what we were looking for in a new home. Their knowledge of the Bethlehem area was extremely helpful in securing the perfect house in the perfect location. They made what is normally a very stressful process very easy and responded quickly to all our questions and requests. I would recommend McSharry and Associates to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Albany/Bethlehem area.Maggie and Eric, Albany and Slingerlands
Great realtors and people. We truly enjoyed working with them from start to finish. Patrick and Julie were attentive to our needs from the onset and were very flexible with regard to showing homes. Thanks agin Patrick and Julie.Eric, Niskayuna
We recently sold our home in Albany and purchased a new property with the help of McSharry and Associates and we couldn't be happier with the results! Their insight into the local market was invaluable during our search. We would highly recommend Patrick and Julie to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Capital District.Brandon, Albany
We had been exploring the housing market for a year but when we got serious we started working with Patrick and Julie. At our first meeting we provided our preferences and they created a process focused on delivering the home that we wanted. They were very responsive to every request for a showing and provided an honest perspective on the pluses and minuses of every property. We really appreciated the expert advice they provided in negotiations which helped us get the house we wanted for the price we wanted to pay. Bottom line Patrick and Julie are good people and my wife and I would recommend them to anyone.Mark, Albany
Decided on the spur of the moment to sell my house and move into a senior lease arrangement. Turned to Julie and Patrick who were everything one could hope for: both professional and encouraging. Pictures and knowledge sold my house quickly and communication throughout made the process flow smoothly and the anxiety not atKatherine, Delmar
Patrick and Julie were great – knowledgeable and always available to answer questions. We LOVE our house and are grateful for their patience in our search. If it weren’t for Patrick’s advice on offer price, we would have lost our dream house.Candace, Slingerlands
