“As first time buyers, my wife and I were somewhat naïve to the entire home purchasing process. Some friends of ours recommended us to Sharon Riegert of the Passaro Team at Baird & Warner in Naperville. Sharon walked us through the process slowly, ensuring that we were comfortable with each step. Sharon’s professionalism and patience made us feel at ease throughout this very important stage in our life, especially during the current economic times. Once we found and closed on our new home, she was upfront about the fact that sellers overpaid her commission. Shortly after closing, Sharon ensured that we received our 1% rebate in a timely and straightforward fashion. In this way, Sharon’s concern for our welfare was obvious even after the sale was completed. Her services are highly recommended."

“When my wife and I moved to Chicagoland, we had a tight schedule, no knowledge of Naperville, and no experience in buying or owning a home. The service and guidance we received from Sharon Riegert at Baird & Warner was invaluable to making our move as easy and pleasant as possible. We were able to find, purchase, and occupy our ideal home in just 45 days. Even after moving in, we still receive reminders and suggestions on home ownership and how to maximize the value of our home. Sharon's dedication and organization earned our respect, but her knowledge and loyalty to our needs earned our trust. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for their first, or next, home." Casey Hetrick

“Sharon, Jeff and I have worked with many realtors over the years but you were definitely the best. You kept us informed on the changing market conditions and provided us with pros and cons for all choices that we had to make. I don’t think we would have sold our home without your help, in fact, I am certain of it. I recommend you to anyone I know who wants to sell or buy a home. You are the very best. Thanks." Barb Gordon

“I recently purchased my 1st home and just wanted to say thank you to Sharon Riegert at Baird&Warner. She always kept me informed and went that extra mile to help me understand all the details that go into buying a home. I also truly appreciated the extra time that Sharon put in to help me in this most important decision. In the future I will definitely recommend Sharon to anyone looking to purchase a new home. Sincerely, Otis Denning”

My wife and I recently had the great pleasure of working with Sharon to help us find a new home. The whole experience could not have gone any better from start to finish. We were first time home buyers, looking in the spring, and were also planning for a wedding in the middle of summer! One would imagine it would all amount to a very busy and perhaps stressful time, but Sharon helped alleviate all the stress associated with our house search and turned it into an enjoyable and exciting process. We actually spoke and met with 2 realtors prior to contacting Sharon, both of which did not truly listen to our needs and desires in what we wanted and expected from a realtor. From the first phone call with Sharon, I knew that I had found someone who was ready to listen and help us out, and I could not wait for my wife to meet her so we could finally start the home buying process in the manner that best fit our lifestyle. An added bonus was Sharon's contacts for a home inspector and real estate lawyer, who were both as professional as she was, and also very nice people to work with. We would recommend Sharon to anyone in a heart beat! She brings a very professional, dedicated, and experienced work ethic and at the same time is a very caring and enthusiastic person. She was a delight to work with!

“Working with the Passaro Team, specifically Sharon was a wonderful experience. Sharon genuinely cared about finding not only a house for my husband and I, but also a home! It was our first time buying a home, and she made a very emotional and stressful process, easy and stress free. Sharon is extremely organized, and always handles herself in a professional manner. She took care of us and always had our family's best interest at heart. If I have any friends that are looking to buy or sell, we will give them your name! We loved working with you!” Audrey and Lee Rogers

"I must admit when you informed us of all the things you and your team would do to close the sale of my home I did not believe it. However, you proved me wrong. The entire Passaro Team went over and above to service and facilitate the sale of our home; the ideas and services were above and beyond the call of duty. I am writing this letter to let you and your team know that Jan and I appreciate the team performance and efforts put forth in closing the sale of property. We will always give any prospective customer our praise for the performance of the Passaro Team. As you know we had worked with another agent for about 18 months trying to sell our home, and I assure you the performance of your team is far superior to any agency I’ve worked with. You can be proud of the team excellence put forth by the Passaro Team.Sincerely, Chuck & Jan Graves”

“I live in Wisconsin.I had no idea where to begin when my father passed away and we needed to sell his home in West Chicago.The house had not been well cared during his illness. Sharon talked to us, gave us some guidelines on how to begin, went from room to room with us, and let us know just what had to be done to make the home 'marketable'. She helped us get the house ready to be sold. This was a very emotional time, and Sharon gave us personal support as well as her real estate knowledge to get the job done. The first people who saw the house made an offer, and after several negotiations, the house was sold. This would never have happened so smoothly if Sharon had not been there to support the process. Sharon is a great businesswoman, professional, and yet has the warmth of a true friend.” Nancy Hink

I received your message about how we are doing. Joe and I really love the house inside and out with great view. We settle in for the most part now. Things are going well. Thank you for finding us a great house.
We wish you more successful contracts,

When it was time to sell our first home, we never once considered anyone other than Sharon Riegert and the Passaro Team. She helped find our home, and we knew exactly the kind of strong work ethic and determination she was going to bring to the table for selling our home.
Sharon is by far the most well rounded realtor you will ever hire. She is prompt, prepared, realistic and supportive. We knew we were trying to sell our house in a down market and that the likelihood of us even selling in the first six months was low. But with Sharon, she proved us wrong. She sold our house within the first six weeks of it being on the market! She communicated with us on every decision and every turn in the negotiating process. We never once felt as if she wasn’t there for us, on our side, being our advocate, and helping us through a very stressful time. Sharon is truly the best realtor you will ever find!

"Dear Tom and Sharon, Sonja and I would like to express our gratitude to you for the pleasant experience we had buying and selling a home with the Passaro team. Your professionalism, hard work, and continued persistence were very much appreciated from beginning to end. We understand how tuff the market conditions were in the last 6 months, and were amazed at your ability to sell my home in less than 30 days, and transition into finding us a new home in a very tight timetable. On behalf of my wife, I strongly recommend the Passaro Team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Fox valley area. You will not find a better team to work with! My wife and I look forward to working with you in the future. Thanks again for a job well done. Sincerely, Josh and Sonja Novotney" February, 2010

“As first time home buyers, we found the Passaro Team to be a perfect fit. The Passaro Team quickly put us at ease, as they were there to answer any question or concern that we had about the house buying process. In the end, we were fortunate to have found the perfect home. Even after we moved in, the Passaro Team continues to stay in contact offering support and guidance in any way necessary. We thank the Passaro Team for helping us to start our new life as homeowners.

“My husband and I recently purchased our first home with the help of Sharon Riegert. She was very organized and explained all of the intricacies of home buying to us so we knew what to expect every step of the way. Sharon was always available to answer any of our questions by email and/or phone. Sharon was able to make recommendations and connect us with an attorney, a mortgage officer, and a home inspector. All three were just as wonderful as her and made the process run smoothly. We strongly recommend Sharon to anyone who is looking to purchase a home."

Sharon provided me with detail and accurate market analysis and facilitated a timely and smooth home purchase in 2004 and sale in 2013. Sharon was very knowledgeable of industry best practices and responded quickly to all communications and provided quick follow up on actions to keep both purchase and sale transactions moving through final close.
