Sharyn is a very knowledgable realtor. She knows AZ law and fights hard for her buyers to make sure they get the best deal and what they are entitled to! I did not worry at all during the process - which can be stressful.She will totally take care of you.

Sharyn made our home selling and buying experience timely, organized and overall very smooth. Our home sold the first day on the market! She was always available for all of our needs and concerns. She has become more than a realtor, she is a friend who wanted nothing but the best for us. Sharyn truly presents with expertise knowledge in her area but more importantly she truly cares about her clients! -The Ranns

Sharyn did an excellent job for us! She didn't waste our time showing us homes that didn't fit our needs or budget. All documents were explained to us and completed in a very timely fashion. When wrinkles did occur she helped us resolve them without pause. If we had chosen another Realtor I think we'd still be looking at homes instead of living in this wonderful home she helped us buy.H.V. Freeman, Chandler AZ

"Sharyn's professionalism, attention to detail, patience and knowledge of the buying process made a huge difference in my ability to purchase my home. She partnered with me for over 2 years, sending me listings, introducing me to the right mortgage company, title company, inspector, etc. When it came time for me to buy, we were ready to move forward as a team. I am extremely excited about my new home and being able to share that joy with Sharyn as my friend and realtor. I highly recommend Sharyn and Glass House International!"
Thorough, ethical, professional, considers all parties needs, directed and guided me through the process from start to finish. She's humble, too...I didn't realize how bad-ass she truly is until after closing...just check out her credentials!!!

"Three days till we move into the new house... Super excited!!! Seriously, if Sharyn and my mortgage broker were not so extremely awesome there would be no way I would have been here. From decision to move until move in was less than 2 months. With me on the road half the time... Listed 8/20, contracted 8/22, contracted on the new house 8/30, move in 9/26... In all the many properties I have bought and sold over the past 15 years... Which has to be over 5... This is the smoothest transition I have been through...  Sharyn Israel Younger... You are awesome".

"Sharyn Younger made my house buying experience incredible. She was very helpful and I would recommend her to everyone. Sharyn made the whole experience easy and was always very honest with any questions I had through out the process".

"Sharyn did a great job finding us the home that we'll be living in for a long time. She took care of every detail and all of our fears about how stressful the process was going to be were unnecessary. We actually had a great time and feel like we got the best possible deal on the home we purchased. She knew what to expect and how to handle it. Her sense of humor helped keep things enjoyable, even when the inspection portion got a little complicated. We've already recommended Sharyn to friends who are selling their home in the east valley and buying a house in the west valley."
