    New Bern became my home in 2006. It was a pleasure to learn about all New Bern had to offer through my parents who retired here in 1995. With each visit, it became harder and harder to return to my home in Alexandria, VA. After a career in pest control, real estate and property renovations, everything came together and I jumped at the opportunity to move to New Bern. Clients will reap the rewards of my years of real estate experience, pest control knowledge and renovation know-how. My "hands-on" approach, a strong work ethic, attention to details and area knowledge are the backbone of my real estate success. I am committed to assisting you with all your real estate needs.

    Sharon Overholt Maxey was very professional and accessible. I had many questions and she always responded within a timely manner. I worked with realtors before and that¿s one of many things that stood out to me. I would recommend Sharon because she is very knowledgeable with the area and made the whole buying experience worthwhile. I changed my mind several times throughout this process, from looking at a fixer upper home to a overpriced house to a new construction property. Sharon was there with me and didn¿t give up and help to guide me to the house I have today. Not only is she a great realtor but she knows a lot about the small details like the grass. She informed me that the grass I have in the front verses the back are different and both have pros/cons to them. Another property we were look at looked fine but she noticed a sheet of drywall propped behind a piece of furniture. Her attention to detail is spot on. It¿s these little details that set her apart from the rest. ~ Desmond Willis, New Bern, NC

Sharon used an arsenal of premium quality skills to assist us in the largest purchase of our lives. Glad we used the service of a real pro! We feel fortunate to have Sharon work so closely with us. Sharon is an incredibly well-rounded agent! Our many previous experiences with former R.E. Agents revealed we fortunately found an agent that checked all the boxes, what a difference! ~ Mike and Lesa Wilson, Minnesott Beach
    Sharon went the extra mile, and then some, to assure we received a fair market value for our property by dealing with a poor appraisal compared to the most current market.

We felt that Sharon always acted in our best interest and willingly shared her extensive knowledge of the area. ~ Mike and Lesa Wilson, Minnesott Beach, NC

    We hadn't looked at purchasing a home in over 34 years and we landed on Sharon Overholt Maxey when we looked at a link to a condo at Atlantic Beach. She showed it to us and we liked her immediately. We determined we wanted to look at more homes and that we wanted to work with Sharon. She instilled trust in us, and we had confidence in her. We set up an appointment with Sharon the following weekend and as she patiently showed us many more homes, we fell in love with the place we ended up buying. Sharon stayed on top of the process and kept us informed. We were confident she always had our best interests at heart. She was accessible and responsive; she was very timely with replying to emails, calls and texts. I liked that she knew the area and obviously had a great deal of expertise and experience. Sharon was extremely professional in all dealings. Once we made an offer, we encountered a situation where another buyer was also offering on the same home. Sharon's experience enabled her to guide us through negotiations with success. We rejoiced as a team when our counter offer was ultimately accepted by the seller. Sharon Overholt Maxey is a dedicated professional with the know-how required in today's fast-paced and competitive marketplace. She is friendly and knowledgeable. As the buying process progressed, I began to view Sharon as a loyal friend and I knew she was working hard to achieve our buying success. We did encounter some bumps in the road due to the lender, appraiser and underwriter but Sharon deftly navigated us past the obstacles. I was very grateful for her experience and knowledge. I would definitely recommend Sharon Overholt Maxey to anyone buying or selling a home. ~ Sonja Moore, Raleigh
