Hometown: Maple Grove, MN
Best quotes from her story: “I spent a good portion of my growing up years in a small town of about 600 people where my parents owned and operated a small grocery store, so I know how important it is to support local businesses. Throughout my adult life, I have embraced my community and neighbors wholeheartedly. In my real estate career, I jumped in with both feet. Sponsoring a neighborhood on Parkbench is a natural extension to supporting small business.”
“I contribute a portion of my commission in my client’s name to a local non-profit. Think of the incredible impact this creates in our community, thanks to people who have worked alongside me to buy, sell and invest in real estate.”
“Within my business, I enjoy creating new and unique ways to connect with people and have fun at the same time. As a student of Michael J Maher, who is the author of 7L: The Seven Levels of Communication, I ran with an idea he suggested to create a community group on Facebook. The result . . . Explore Maple Grove Facebook group which now has over 1300 members and is a real hub of activity.”
Shari’s business philosophy: “I have learned an astonishing amount over the years about the real estate business, and my biggest lesson has been to ‘get out of my own way!’ This is good advice to take whether just starting out or if you have a 30+ year career. I would also advise people to build relationships from the start and as the saying goes, ‘Be interested, not interesting’. This basically means use your ears more than your mouth.”
“Being authentic is the only way I know how to be, and my clients know I genuinely care about them, far beyond the sale. I am always looking at how I can make a bigger difference in my community, and I hope this becomes part of my legacy. As for my journey — I make it about others first through love, generosity, and appreciation. That’s how I roll!”

~Pedro & Cassandra
“After the first time I sat down with Shari and explained what I wanted and expectations I had of her, she had excellent follow-through. I was skeptical to continue to list right in the COVID-19 pandemic (March 2020). She did it — SOLD!! Shari is aggressive, knowledgeable and was motivated to sell my house for me. She helped me find a Realtor in FL and referred me to work with her to purchase my retirement home. Thank you, Shari!! I will refer Shari to family and friends.”
“Buying my first home with Shari has been more than amazing. She has been very supportive, helpful, and always responds very quickly. She goes above and beyond to make sure your dreams are accomplished. Shari helped my family and I find a beautiful home in this tough market. I highly recommend buying and selling with Shari. Thank you again, Shari. I couldn’t have done this without you!!”
