Our journey though Starr Pass began in 2000 when we had Tim build a home for us in Quail Hollow that Starr Pass Realty, LLC had listed. We loved it here and were happy for many years. When we decided to upgrade, Sharon found us a beautiful luxury home here in Fox Hideaway. She also helped us purchase a vacation rental. She is very knowledgeable about real estate in general and keeps up to date. She has been the primary Broker for Starr Pass since 1993 and has a very helpful team approach.

Sharon and Brian worked hard as a team to ensure our house was marketable and made suggestions that worked. Sharon is amazing; she knows how many square feet are in any property on the market in Starr Pass. We did purchase a vacation townhouse by owner and had more issues than we would have liked due to not using Sharon’s services.

Sharon takes great pride in the fact she helped save the environment when developing Starr Pass. It is a beautiful area. We recommend the Starr Pass team.

Dear Sharon and Brian:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work you put in the sale of my property in Tucson. From the beginning when you suggested I not accept an offer you felt was too low to arranging for a house sitter while the movers were there, your efforts were above and beyond anything I have experienced with Realtors in the past. The many bumps in the road in between were smoothed out by your very professional attention. Ultimately the house was sold for the asking price. Once again, thank you.

Sharon and Brian Shinn did an excellent job selling our house on Red Bird Ct. With their feedback from potential buyer’s visits, we made some minor improvements to make the house more saleable. They helped negotiate a good sale price and the sale went smoothly. Living in Pennsylvania having a good agent and having them take care of all the details was comforting.

Nice job Starr Pass Team

– Larry Shekll

I have had the pleasure to work with Brian and Sharon for 10 years. They are experienced professionals and bring tremendous expertise to Real Estate transactions. I found their knowledge and relationships within Tucson to be particularly valuable. We purchased our last home and now have recently listed the home with them.

After 32 years of residence in Chicago my family has moved to Tucson AZ. This can be a daunting and difficult process. It is a stressful time.

Fortunately for my family, we contracted with an outstanding Real Estate Agent, Kamal Madi. Our process of moving took quite ome time. Kamal was with us every step of the way. He is innovative, professional, thorough and honest. He walked us through every step of the moving process. Kamal is a man of integrity, character, disciplined and has a strong work ethic. He always delivered strong strategic advice. My family could not be happier than with Kamal as our agent. I would recommend him to anyone with out reservation or hesitation. You will find a VERY good man in Kamal Madi.

There are two sides of a Real Estate agreement: the buyer and the seller. While we feel that Kamal was superb in his service, the seller’s agent was equally outstanding. Sharon Shinn-Smith, President of Starr Pass Realty was the consummate pro. Usually there is very little contact between the buyer and the seller’s agent. Sharon was incredibly helpful throughout the process. She made sure that we felt welcome to the Starr Pass community, thus ensuring we are happy customers. I must admit that Ms. Smith is quite impressive. We feel that we are very fortunate indeed to have worked with these two outstanding people.

I own a casita in Starr Pass, which is a great place to live, but I wanted to get a slightly bigger place. I also currently own another lot in Starr Pass, which I intend to build on in the future. I have lived all over Tucson, and Starr Pass is 20 minutes from the airport, and 5 minutes from downtown. Plus you walk out the back door and you’re in Tucson Mountain Park… I don’t know what could be better! Sharon Shinn Smith is very careful, discloses everything and makes sure you understand the process. Compared to my experiences with other realtors, Sharon really goes that extra mile to make sure her customers truly understand everything about their property.

We have used Sharon, Brian, and Ed at Starr Pass Realty to help us buy or sell several properties in the past 4 years. They are very professional, know their business, and have connections in the community that allows us to purchase or sell a property with confidence, knowing that we recieved personal attention. More than once they found properties for us to view that were not yet even listed on the open market. We can recommend Starr Pass Realty to anyone looking in the Tucson Mountain and Starr Pass areas.

Our recent move to Starr Pass has far exceeded our highest expectations. The spectacular scenery and outstanding amenities combine to provide us with an idyllic lifestyle.

We were drawn to Starr Pass by the natural beauty and fantastic golf course. We love being so close to the JW Marriott and all of the amenities it brings. We have really enjoyed living in Starr Pass. It has been our second home for 10 years. The people are great! We have bought and sold a half dozen properties and appreciated Sharon’s assistance as out of town buyers. Sharon has extensive knowledge about the area, which sets her apart from other realtors in Tucson. We recommend Starr Pass Realty. They have done a great job for us.

– Lisa and Alan Wade

We love the Starr Pass area and hope that the new owners find it a great place to live like we do. The quiet neighborhoods, golf course, restaurants and the views are spectacular…… and the people here are very friendly! It is truly a great community to live in.

Thank you Sharon, Brian and Maria! All three of you helped make the sale of our home a good experience. Every call that we made to your office was immediately handled and questions were always answered in a knowledgeable way. Keep up the good work!

– Vicki Cessa

Our experience of selling our home with Starr Pass Realty was a very positive one. Sharon Shinn Smith is, by far, the most knowledgeable realtor in the Starr Pass area. She was very professional throughout the entire process of selling our home. She was always prompt to answer questions and her advice was spot on as far as preparing our home for sale and helping to set a realistic selling price.

She handled negotiations with the buyer with the utmost professionalism and made the entire process seamless. Based on our experience with Sharon, we would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction, especially in Starr Pass.
