Sharon O’Brien is a seasoned real estate pro with a strong creative and graphic arts background.
After attending Northern Illinois University, the University of Idaho, and Boise State University, Sharon got her start in residential real estate sales more than 30 years ago. At the time, she had three young children, so she moved into an administrative role. But it didn’t take her long to find that her true talent was in creating powerful business presentations for commercial real estate firms and brokerage professionals.
Sharon has been in the Seattle area for nearly two decades now. She has worked as a graphic designer, senior administrative assistant, and marketing director for commercial real estate firms such as JLL, Grubb & Ellis, Colliers International, and Cushman & Wakefield.
When not in the office, Sharon spends as much time as possible with family, including her five grandkids. In addition to family, Sharon has many other interests, as well.
She’s an accomplished musician—she’s had several bands in the Seattle area over the years. She also loves her dogs, yoga, working out, gardening, hiking, camping, horseback riding, and swimming. If that isn’t enough, Sharon has been highly involved with Girl Scouts of America, Union Gospel Mission, the Sierra Club, and Community Neighborhood Gardens.
