Get to Know
I'm Kirsten Sharpe, the REALTOR for SENIORS™. I'm the Managing Broker and Owner of Sharpe Realty and I love helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs. My strongest passion and additional education lies in helping seniors and their families navigate the preparation and sale of their long-held family home.
I have earned the SRES® REALTOR Designation (Senior Real Estate Specialist), which means I have demonstrated the necessary knowledge and expertise to counsel clients age 50+ through major financial and lifestyle transitions. I will counsel you on the right way to prepare and sell the family home, keeping costs to a minimum and making only the absolute necessary repairs before listing. I also have the Seller Representative Specialist designation, the premier education credential when working with sellers. I gained additional education to earn the Pricing Strategy Advisor Certification, so I can establish a fair market value for your house, based on an in-depth study of the real estate market in your area. I also have the Accredited Buyer's Representative designation, showing I have strong skills and the education needed to help buyers purchase their dream home.
I previously worked in International Sales & Marketing, with $26 Million in sales responsibility. My customers included DuPont, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble and PepsiCo, among many other prominent companies. You can be assured I have honed my negotiation skills, so I can represent you in the best manner.
My formal education includes a Bachelor of Liberal Studies Degree in Business from Purdue University, and a Certificate in Executive Management from Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business.
I believe in giving back to my community through volunteering. I'm involved with the following organizations:
South Bend Art League, Board Member
South Bend Venues Parks & Arts
Instructor at Forever Learning Institute
I'm very active and enjoy sports. I hike, golf, run, play pickleball, and ski. My other interests include food & cooking, gardening, art, music, theatre, architecture and traveling.
For 30+ years I have lived in South Bend, in Wakarusa, and now in Granger. I love this area and I’m vested in making it a wonderful environment for all of us.
