Patrick McSharry went to graduate school to be a clinical psychologist but two years into the program, he decided that while he wanted to help people, he wanted to do it in a very different way than he originally conceived, and a serendipitous conversation with a Realtor, led him down a new path. For sixteen years, he worked for several large real estate brokerages in the Capital Region, serving over 400 families and becoming an expert on the local market.
Patrick developed a successful business based on serving his clients with honesty and integrity. Patrick’s highest priority has always been to get the best possible deal for the people he represents. He is known for his strong negotiation skills, his calm demeanor and his responsiveness. Over the course of Patrick’s career, the average sale price he has negotiated for his seller clients is over 98% of the list price. That statistic has remained consistent even during the recent downturn in the economy, and is consistently higher than that of the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) average. His listings sell 32% faster than the MLS average. He is proud to say that he sells homes faster and for more money than his colleagues and has done so for sixteen years. Patrick also represents buyers, negotiating on their behalf, often saving them thousands of dollars off of the list price of their desired home.
In the spring of 2012, Patrick, along with his wife and business partner Julie Sasso, opened McSharry and Associates Realty, based in Delmar. They realized that no company out there could give them the flexibility to provide their clients with the level of individualized attention they deserved, so they decided to create such a company. With their name on the company letterhead, they know that now more than ever it is imperative that they create happy clients who will send all of their family and friends to McSharry and Associates.
