My Home Agent
About. Sharon Carman has been bringing Buyers and Sellers together since 1989.
She is passionate about it! Two things Sharon loves are people and their pets. In fact, people who know her refer to her as, “the Realtor for people and pets” because she is active in the pet rescue community too! “My goal is to help as many people and pets find the homes of their dreams, as I possibly can. I love meeting new people! Combining my passion for people and pets came naturally to me.
My husband and I have 9 rescue dogs of our own, and they add so much to our lives. We have no children, so our pets are our kids. We’re pet people, and if I can help homeless animals find loving homes and help people find homes, then I am thrilled!”
Her real estate career began in Denver, Colorado. While attending college, she worked with a worldwide franchise selling primarily high-end properties in Greenwood Village and Cherry Hills Village where she and her family lived.
After earning her Bachelor of Science Degree in Management, with an emphasis in Marketing, Sharon returned to North Texas. "I've lived in Dallas - Ft. Worth most of my life. My family moved here when I was only 4 years old, so it's really home to me! It's a great place to live. The people are warm and friendly, and there is lots of sunshine. I love it here!"
She entered the advertising industry working for the third largest agency in Dallas (at the time). While there, Sharon learned the 'ins and outs' of the advertising world. Working with big name clients: Southwestern Bell, Bryan Foods, Poulan-WeedEater and others, Sharon gained valuable experience and learned to think 'outside the box.' ''I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in such an exciting industry. I learned so much and I am able to apply it to my business today.
''There is more to advertising than catchy phrases and pretty people. If you're going to successfully market a product you have to know who your target market is. Then, you have to develop unique ways to make your client shine!''
Suffering from advertising industry burnout, Sharon quit her job and returned to real estate as a licensed Texas Realtor. She worked with two of the largest franchises in Texas. In August of 2000 she decided to open The Real Estate Connection in order to better serve client needs.
She is honored to be the recipient of the coveted Five Star Professional Award, 2011-2017. The Five Star Professional Award is given to the top 7% of Realtors in the State, and it is based on sales, as well as, client satisfaction.
Sharon has earned e-PRO certification by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). The e-PRO Internet Professional Certification program is the only online training course for Internet professionalism recognized by the NAR. As an e-PRO certified real estate agent Sharon has joined the ranks of a special community of highly skilled and continuously trained professionals who provide high quality and innovative on-line based real estate services.
She has earned her Buyer Representation certification. She is also a Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource Specialist, a Texas Affordable Housing Specialist & a New Home Sales Specialist. Sharon is also a certified Home Stager and she's able to share her knowledge with her clients to help them correctly stage their homes in order to appeal to the largest audience.

My husband and I have used Sharon Carman twice when trying to find the perfect home for us and once to sell our home. I can't say enough wonderful things about her and her work ethic. She is available when you need her and doesn't expect you to plan around her schedule. She is efficient, very knowledge in the business, caring, helpful, dedicated and will make your buying/selling process as stress-free and smooth as she possibly can. We used her when building both of our homes and she's been right by our side the whole way through. We have worked with Sharon on and off for 8 years and have been very pleased with her from day one. She will work hard for you! It's not often that you meet someone to assist you with a business transaction and later become friends with them. I highly recommend Sharon Carman with the Real Estate Connection! — Brandi and Craig Foret, Burleson, TX
What can I say about Sharon Carman? She was a tremendous help in the sale of our first home in 1998. She walked my then husband and I through the whole entire process every step of the way. She gave us guidance and assistance in putting the house on the market, obtaining a mortgage broker, closing on the sale of our home and purchase of a new home. She was just great! She kept me very updated through the whole entire process. I think it took about a month and a half to close on the sale of our house. During that time frame, I think we probably spoke on the phone at least twice a day. She very patiently, graciously and knowledgeably answered all my questions. I was amazed at how much time she would spend w/me on the phone answering all my questions. I often wondered if she ever slept because I thought if she spends as much time with all her other clients as she does with me, she must get very little sleep, if any at all. Sharon was very attentive to our needs in selling our home and the purchase of our new home. In 2001, when it came time to sell the home that she helped us purchase in 1998, I knew I needed to call Sharon because she did such a great job for us before and I trusted her fully to steer us in the right direction. Again, she again assisted us in the sale and purchase of our home. She assisted us in every step of the process from start to finish. She left nothing undone. Believe it or not that time she even provided my husband and I with moving boxes. Now tell me what real estate agent will do that! When we divorced and sold the house, Sharon did it again!! She has gotten top dollar for us every time. I waited a few years before buying again, but in 2015 Sharon helped me find my dream home; a gorgeous old home built in 1905! It has some minor work to be done, but I enjoy doing those projects and I couldn't be happier about this house. Well, I can’t say enough good things about Sharon. She is a top-notch real estate agent, who will help her clients every step of the way from start to finish. When you hire Sharon as your real estate agent, you will walk away from the entire experience feeling very well taken care of. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asked me if I knew a real estate agent. I not only consider her a great real estate agent, but I consider her a friend too. — Deborah Beaty, Murchison, TX
For anybody looking for an amazing Realtor or considering working with Sharon Carman at The Real Estate Connection, my wife Kristalyn Wade Naylor and I give Sharon and her team our highest possible recommendation. — Derek and Krista, now living in Utah
