Shari is the nicest, most professional, rational and attentive Realtor I have ever listed with. I am so glad to have met her!!!

Shari is the hardest working and nicest realtor I know. She is knowledgeable about neighborhoods and how the homes were constructed. Always advising on potential things. Really helps when purchasing a home. Will always use Shari for north bay transactions. Thank you Shari For the fantastic new rental Property!

Fabulous real estate agent who listens carefully to her clients needs and goals. Shari handled our sale and purchase of a new home very professionally guiding us through each step. I would highly recommend Shari Wilkins!

Shari helped me buy my house a few years ago, and I couldn't have survived the process without her. I had to buy another house quickly (ended up with a 17-day escrow!), and somehow she made it all happen. She is professional, smart, knowledgeable, responsive and responsible, and the epitome of honesty and integrity. I couldn't have asked for a better agent to help me through what could have been an extremely stressful process. Thanks to Shari, it wasn't. I highly recommend Shari!

I highly recommend using Shari as your agent. She was insightful, knowledgeable and supportive throughout the entire selling process. I live out of state and Shari was kind enough to assist with cleaning out the house, contacting and meeting with vendors to make repairs, and dealing with the Kafkaesque permit nightmare created by the city of Novato. That personal touch, along with her professionalism and patience, made working with Shari a pleasure.

Shari was our realtor.Great personality, engaging and detailed oriented. Walked us through a very difficult sale and kept us from walking with her calming demeanor. She is smart and well-connected to offer assistance by providing options when professional help is required for financing, legal assistance and the numerous trade assistance during a move and after. We would definately recommend Shari as a highly qualified real estate professional that is capable to tackle complicated transaction and turn it into a smooth transition from one home to another.

Shari Wilkins is all the above and more. Sheri Wilkins is very help & truthful with any question that you present to her before, during & after your transaction. She is very professional & yet a person you feel comfortable with without pressure. She is very patient on gathering the clients ideas on what they would like on their purchase & works hard on finding their dream property.I would strongly recommend Shari Wilkins to anyone that is in search for that dream property.

She was very attentive at all times and available to help immediately.Due to her years of experience she was very diligent with the paper work and it was a true pleasure dealing with her. Also, she never did pressure me to buy a home I was not in love with. She always wanted to make sure, I was happy with my decision without any pressure to purchase a home. She is very easy to work with when purchasing a home.

Shari is very exact in everything she does she helped me more then once she sold my grandmothers home help me find the perfect condo for myself also sold my parents home which was a difficult time for me she made it go so smooth I would highly recommend her which I already have to any one selling there home

Shari is simply the best realtor in the North Bay. We have bought and sold multiple properties with Shari over the last 15 years and each time it has been an absolute pleasure working with her. She always has her clients' best interest in mind and is an excellent negotiator. If an unusual question about a property comes up, Shari will research the issue until she finds the answer. She never tires of our endless questions.Shari is also well-networked and knows lots of experts all over Sonoma and Marin County that she can recommend for inspections, construction projects, specialty services, etc. She is very responsive and spends extra time catering to her clients' needs including attending home inspections, walking her clients around to meet neighbors in their desired neighborhood, researching issues regarding city/county requirements, and so on. And she is a kindhearted person who knows her stuff!

Shari helped me buy my first home in 2000, then helped me sell it this year--as well as helping my parents buy and sell their own home. I can't think of anyone who goes the extra mile to make her clients happy. She handled the major details of listing my home, took care of the small ones, such as dealing with my HOA and permit issues with the city, and helped position my listing in such a way that it got maximum exposure and many competitive offers.
I can't recommend Shari enough! Even with all the challenges involved in excessive paperwork and assorted fees I always felt like I was in good hands that made sure I understood EVERYTHING, so all the best decisions (and in home sales there are many) could be made. :)

My family and I have known and worked with Shari Wilkins for almost 20 years. Experience in this industry and local knowledge of the Marin and Sonoma county markets is what separates Shari from the rest of the pack. Shari has always been conscious of our specific needs rather than going with the current market trends and just "checking off the boxes". As a past client helping me with my first real estate purchase as well as other transactions over the years , Shari took the time to make sure I was not only comfortable with my decision, but ensured that I understood all the ins and outs of my rights as buyer and seller. She made the process as least stressful as possible and was always available to answer my questions or concerns with complete thoughts that related directly to myself and my situation. If you are looking for a true real estate professional that will REALLY work with you from start to finish - I can't think of anyone else that I would want to represent me!

Shari was EXTREMELY responsive. We looked at LOTS of homes, and had a wide range of acceptable criteria, making her really have to sift through tons of choices to find us interesting homes in our price range. She is especially good in the North Bay area, Novato, Petaluma, etc, but also knew about/did her homework in the central/southern Marin area where we were looking. Honestly, we knew the area very well and were pinpointing our needs geographically, so we didn't rely much on her area knowledge much.
Due to a timing issue (I was selling a home simultaneously), Shari's first choice of Title Company needed to be changed. Her second choice had a few glitches that made the close more difficult than it needed to be. To be fair, I was using an internet based bank, and I really don't know where the fault lies (my bank or the escrow officer), but long story short, numbers were wrong at the signing, a $12k payment I'd made to escrow was lost and when I pointed it out at signing, they found it, and fixed the paperwork, but that ended up causing a glitch with the bank as they didn't have all the banking information for the account it had been drawn on, which held up the close three days. In the midst of stress and strain, I felt that my agent should have mediated and tracked the process to ensure it was on track, but now in hindsight, realistically those professionals (bank and escrow) should have been capable of managing it themselves. So maybe I was expecting too much of my agent, I don't know.
Shari was always professional, courteous, helpful, intelligent, insightful, supportive, available, creative, and honest. I would certainly use her again.

We worked with Shari Wilkins when moving from Marin to Petaluma. She was absolutely wonderful, held our hands, and was incredibly patient with us during our first home buying experience.

Two agents I can highly recommend: Shari Wilkins in Novato and Hilary Davis in MarinWood.
