Brian Sharkey, Broker of Saint Lucie West Realty LLC is the Short Sale Specialist other agents go to for their short sale transactions.  Sharkey is known for his negotiating skills which are essential when dealing with lenders on a regular basis.  He is always exploring different ways to provide his clients with the best possible solution for their financial situation.
 
When the market changed and short sales were considered "deals to be avoided" due to their difficulty, he saw them as an opportunity for growth and a way to assist homeowners in need.  He also helps fellow realtors to understand the process and they in turn come to him for advice and guidance.
 
Sharkey's strong problem solving skills have provided him a base from which he has built a successful business.  He is continuously networking with other real estate professionals such as mortgage brokers, title companies, and other Realtors to provide his clients with the best possible vendor to service their needs.  He is highly self-motivated with a passion to deliver superior service.  And due to his enthusiastic personality and high energy, it's no wonder the majority of Sharkey's business comes from referrals.
 
Sharkey has an extensive amount of Short Sale experience and is a certified Short Sale professional.  He specializes in Short Sales in St. Lucie County, Martin County and Palm Beach County in the state of Florida.
 
If you would like to know if you qualify for a short sale or just want more information about the process, you can reach Sharkey at 772-204-9965 or take a look at what some have said about him.

bonnie klein , Marketing , Space Coast Credit Union
managed Brian indirectly at Riverside Properties

"When I became a licensed Florida Realtor in 2007, soon after moving to Port Sait Lucie, I had no idea what a short sale was let alone how to sell one. When I met Brian, I quickly latched onto his knowledge and expertise of not only short sales, but the area and real estate in general. I witnessed Brian dive head first into the short sale market positioning himself in front of the wave of what is now currently dominating today's market. While other agents would not list or show short sale properties, Brian was constantly researching and educating himself on the entire process. Not only does Brian show compassion and integrity to his clients while "holding their hands" the entire step of the way, he passes that along to his colleagues as well. As a new agent to the South Florida market, I had many questions that Brian had no problem showing or answering for me. I can honestly say, I would not be as successful as I am in real estate and negotiating my own short sales if it were not for him mentoring me in my career. He truly is the guy you want to hire when selling or buying your next home!" October 1, 2009

Leonardo Miranda , Commercial Analyst , Riverside National Bank
was with another company when working with Brian at Riverside Properties

"Brian and I worked together for about one year, starting an Adhoc team to prepare our community for the turnover of our Homeowners Association. During that time I learned that Brian is goal oriented in accomplishing any task that needed to be worked on. He created a list of job skills that we needed for the project, and documented the avtivities we were involved in to start our turnover schedule. Brian became the head of one of our action groups and wrote the initial guidelines for operating the association. To gain acceptance of the guidelines he had to negotiate all of the details of operation, with the entire Adhoc Committee, and this was a huge task he had on his hands. Imagine dealing with a group of successful business people, all with definite opinions of how to run the community. Brian was able to gain a consensus, and we accomplished our project in the time frame that was essential. During this time I became a friend of Brian, and watched him as he worked to sell Real Estate properties in the shrinking market demand of homes. He created contact lists and offered marketing services to sellers that were acively trying to sell their homes at that time, and kept in constant contact with those potential sellers in a future time. When the time arrives that I will be selling my home, I plan to give that responsibility to Brian. Brian is a go getter and not afraid of devoting whatever it takes to succeed.
