Sharon Testimonials

Sharon was recommended to us by a friend in Ouray, and she did not disappoint. From our first phone conversation she was personable, knowledgeable about the Ouray market, interested in finding us the perfect home, and all with the most infectious laugh! She kept us abreast of new listings and made herself readily available when we would come to town to look. Sharon went above and beyond to get us information (pictures and videos) on listings if we couldn’t get there quickly. After many months, with Sharon’s help, we found the our perfect Ouray home. She walked us through the process from start to finish, answering our many questions along the way. Since closing on our home, she has remained a valuable and trusted resource. She loves Ouray and it shows! We can’t imagine sharing this journey with anyone else. Our only regret is that we haven’t had Sharon and her sweet husband over for dinner…yet.

Sharon evaluated the current market and inventory, and with her help we decided it was the perfect time to sell our condo in Ouray. Her office did a fantastic job of marketing our property and we received multiple offers on our home. She guided us through every step, communicated with us frequently, and managed many complexities of the transaction. She went above and beyond by helping us and the buyer through the STR permitting process to ensure a successful outcome for everyone. We are blessed to have Sharon as our realtor. We couldn’t have done this without her expertise and guidance. She is a real gem who will go the extra mile for her clients.

What can we say about Sharon Wild and Wild West Realty?

First of all, thank your so much for helping us make our first mountain dream come true! We fell in love with Ouray on our first trip here in 2018 and could not wait to come back again. September 2020 brought us back here for the last leg of our end-of-summer Colorado road trip. We stumbled in to Wild West Realty on a whim and ended up leaving there with a contract on our own little slice of the Switzerland of America. When we left our home in Cypress, Texas, we never planned to return with a vacation home as a souvenir but Sharon helped us find the perfect property to match our dreams. Our truly is our vision of the quintessential small mountain town and we just had to find a way to have a place of our own. Sharon worked for us immediately to find properties to view on short notice and on a busy Labor Day weekend. In less than 24 hours, we went from “window shoppers” to “under contract” while hitting the road back to Texas. We signed our contract driving down some highway thru New Mexico on September 5th and by October 22nd, we became owners of our own historical piece of the Story Block Building on Main Street in Ouray. Sharon managed to help us overcome a handful of hurdles along the way while exhibiting grace, service and loads of patience as we inundated her with questions about the process. Having never purchased real estate outside of Texas, Sharon helped guide us through the intricacies of a real estate transaction in a 127 year old building. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome! Well, that’s not entirely true…we COULD be happier…but only if we could stay in Ouray full time! We already have Sharon working on that too! We can’t wait to make Ouray our home and we look forward to joining the community.

We met Sharon this past September on a visit to Ouray. I have been hiking/climbing/skiing in the Ouray area since the 1970s. We fantasized about buying a house in Ouray County but home prices seemed high and the inventory low. Despite this we discovered a house for sale on Zillow nestled in the hills between Ouray and Ridgeway that seemed almost too good to be true. We immediately called Sharon at Wild West Realty. The seller’s agent informed Sharon that the schedule for home viewings was packed. Sharon convinced the agent to squeeze us in anyway.

The house seemed perfect for us. Over the next 6 weeks Sharon skillfully guided us through the complex process of loan qualification, home inspection and delicate negotiations with the seller/seller’s agent. She ensured that we met the numerous pre-closing deadlines. Sharon provided us with a wealth of useful and reliable information. She responded promptly and patiently by phone, text and email to our dozens of queries.

In short, Sharon was the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. Anyone wishing to buy a house in Ouray County would be lucky to have Sharon Wild as their real estate agent.

We are grateful to Sharon Wild and Lee Ann Parden of Wild West Realty LLC for helping us achieve our dreams of owning real estate in Ouray Colorado. The amazing teamwork, communication and dedication that Sharon demonstrated through the purchasing process was incredible. Sharon heard us and honored and respected us. She continually worked toward achieving what we wanted to accomplish, even when there were unexpected hurdles to get over. To coordinate a transaction between clients located in Colorado Springs and Texas, during a pandemic and economic uncertainty, unquestionably demonstrates the skills and abilities of Sharon and Lee Ann both.  We would work with both of these professionals again in a heartbeat – Thank you both!
