"She makes sure every "i" is dotted and every "t" is crossed. When the process of purchasing a home at times seemed daunting, Sharlene was the eternal optimist and reassured me that everything would work out. From market analysis, contract negotiations, and doing literally whatever it took to get both deals done, Sharlene was outstanding in terms of her ability to make it happen !! I trust Sharlene and highly recommend this agent and friend for your next real estate transaction."
"Sharlene and Doug are very easy to work with. They respond to e-mails, and phone calls right away and have a vast knowledge about Tampa and the real estate market. They are the best of the best and we wouldn't buy from anyone else, or recommend anyone else to work with.They are just that good!"
"We contacted Sharlene in July 2011 and asked about foreclosures in the Tampa area. After numerous visits were were not able to locate a home in the specific area we liked at the price points we wanted, so we stopped looking for a couple of months. Sharlene stayed in contact with us during this lull and kept us informed of any new homes going onto the market. Sharlene contacted us in October 2011 about a home located in the specific area of Tampa we preferred. Once we agreed it was a home we were interested in Sharlene immediately started the investigation of the property and set up appointments for a visit. It was not a easy deal to close, we encountered many problems and issues during the inspection and negotiating sessions. Sharlene always showed professionalism and tenacity in working through all issues. We own this home today due to the hard work and tenacity of Sharlene. Thanks Sharlene, we love the home."

"My husband and I have had the pleasure of using Sharlene Woodis as our Realtor.
Over the past 5 years she has sold our home in Valrico Fl. and at the same time she found us a beautiful home in Apollo Beach Fl.
We never have had to worry about anything for either transaction. She is professional, informative, and is customer service oriented available immediately by phone or internet. Sharlene knows the Real Estate market and does a comparative analysis of the property and prices it to sell.
Last year we decided to sell our condo we had for several years and of course we called Sharlene again.
She sold the condo in 6 wks.
We would highly recommend Sharlene."

"Closing on my first house in Wesley Chapel, Florida was such a joy for my family and I. However I could not or would had not done it without Sharlene Woodis from Keller Williams Realty, who worked tirelessly to get us what we were looking for. We had a very limited time to look for houses, but despite other commitments Sharlene had to fulfill, she was able to show us over twenty houses. When we finally found the one that was convenient for us, unfortunately I had to leave the country, and was worried for not getting the information on time about my loan, or not being able to provide any document the bank would need from me. But I was pleased working with Sharlene thru emails and telephones calls, and I had no regrets doing so because she was updating me of the closing progress on a daily basis or every other day. What impressed me the most about her, was how she handled my case throughout the loan process. About a week before closing day, I called my loan processor to make sure that every document in my file was up to date and the closing date remained the same on how we all agreed to, but she told me they were having problems verifying my salary with my employer, and if they don't get that information, my loan could be denied. I emailed Sharlene immediately to notify her about the news I received from the bank. She was very upset as she thought everything was good with my file. Prior to leaving the country, the bank provided me with a commitment letter with several minor conditions to be satisfied, which I took care before I left, and Sharlene personally had a conversation with my mortgage consultant who told her there was no problem with my file and the loan looked good when the letter was issued to me. I was ready to give up the all loan process because my patience level wasn't there anymore, but She advised me not to because we were almost at the finish line and also the housing market was picking up and the home prices were going up. So she took that matter on her own hand, reaching out to anybody she could talk to. She called my job and talked to several people, called the bank and put some pressure to both my loan consultant and loan processor, she also talked to the bank big boss who she knows personally. Within 48 hours the bank came up with a solution to solve my salary problem. If she had not intervened and took care that matter, I don't know what would have happened to my loan because of the lack of communication and the poor treatment I received from the bank throughout the all loan process.
I was told by a friend of mine who's very knowledgeable on the housing business that there were two types of real estate agents, those who work for the clients and those who work for their pockets.
Sharlene Woodis is a true professional, very patient and does her job with passion. She will be the real estate agent I will recommend to anybody who wants to buy a house, because I assure you she will work for you until closing, she will take care of you with the same integrity and service she provided me, and She will not hesitate to go the extra mile to keep you in your home purchase."

We have known Sharlene and Doug for almost 10 years now. In that time we have purchased three homes with their help. They have helped us with any questions we may have had at any time. This last property we purchased was possible because of their due diligence in their profession and hard work. They are professional in every way.

Doug and Sharlene, The Tampa Home Team, were a huge asset in selling our townhome. They were diligent with each prospect and taking it through the closing. We cannot thank them enough for making it a seamless process.
Doug and Sharlene were a huge part in helping us find our forever home in Carrollwood. We had a lot of boxes we wanted checked and they helped us find the perfect one.

Sharlene and Doug did an amazing job with both the sale of my old residence and the purchase of my new residence! They quickly got my house under contract (had several offers within just a few days!), and were with me every step of the way offering guidance and recommendations.
On the other side of things, with the purchase of my new residence, they were able to find me the legitimately perfect house for my life and lifestyle. The house is right in the heart of Tampa in the very competitive housing market near the Armature Works area! Not only did they negotiate a great deal, they didn't stop there, they also negotiated needed repairs to be completed by seller prior to closing.
I am extremely happy with their service, they were always just a phone call away and always responded positively and knowledgably. This is now the SECOND time that they have helped me with the purchase of a home. I highly recommend to anyone who is in the market to buy and/or sell a house!

Thank you Sharlene and Doug! We didn't know where to start when looking for a new home and Sharlene and Doug stepped right in and made the whole process from start to finish a breeze. With their years of experience and knowledge they were able to help us find our dream home. My husband and I knew there would be no way that we could have done everything as smoothly without you both. Thank you both again for all that you have done for us

We reside in West Michigan and it was our goal to become snowbirds in Florida upon retirement. We began working on this goal a couple of years prior to retirement which was the end of 2019. On our vacation to Florida Spring of 2019 one of our main objectives was to figure out what we wanted in a Florida property. We were fortunate to meet Sharlene Woodis of LaRosa Reality purely by coincidence during this vacation. We began to work with Sharlene from that point. We found her to be very customer oriented, very knowledgeable on Florida real estate and the purchase regulations / requirements we needed to understand as buyers. She kept us abreast of new listings that met our parameters using technology to show us properties while in Michigan. We found her to be very professional and assertive, not aggressive- she was very patient with us! Ultimately, after 2 more trips to Florida to work with Sharlene we achieved our goal of purchasing a Florida property February 2020 and have begun our FL snowbird life. Sharlene was very helpful assisting us to achieve this goal! We are very happy and excited for many years of enjoyment in sunny Florida versus Michigan winters! We highly recommend The Tampa Home Team at LaRosa Realty to assist you to achieve your Florida dream!
