Growing up in nearby Wilson, North Carolina, Sharon visited the Crystal Coast often as a child. As kids, we didn't know there was another beach! Atlantic Beach and the surrounding Carteret County area still hold the same mystique for me. There is so much beautiful water here. From the ocean to broad sounds, rivers and creeks, there are opportunities for every facet of boating and beach combing and a quality of life unsurpassed for those drawn to the water.
Sharon and her husband Frank Barnes made their home on the coast in 1986. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Atlantic Christian College ( now known as Barton College) in Wilson, Sharon went on to teach in the public schools for 6 years and afterwards found her niche in coastal real estate sales. Since 1986, Sharon has been listing and selling North Carolina coastal properties, and has received many accolades along the way in production and "team player" awards. She has also been listing broker for many large developments and has years of experience with putting together new communities "from the ground up". Always the diplomat, Sharon's strongest skills come into play in negotiating and finalizing transactions. " The purchase of real property is typically the most important acquisition in our lives. I pride myself in using my experience and knowledge to insure that clients are well-informed every step of the way in this process. My familiarity with the Crystal Coast and an understanding of the unique characteristics of coastal living have been invaluable. Most of my business comes by way of personal referrals from past customers and clients. I treasure those relationships and take very seriously my duties and responsibilities." Having owned her own real estate company in past years, Sharon's affiliation with Realty World First Coast Realty has opened new doors in her real estate career. Years of experience, added to the benefits of association with an internationally known real estate company make Sharon a natural choice for both sellers and buyers in today's complex real estate market.
