Born and raised in south central New Jersey in a small town where everyone knows your name.....Let me introduce myself to you. I'm Stormy Robin Sharp.
I was raised in Gloucester City, New Jersey, a small town with a very rich history. On November 4, 1773, Elizabeth Griscom married John Ross at Huggs Tavern. Better known as Betsy Ross, Elizabeth is credited with designing and producing the first American flag. Proprietor's Park was my "Stomping grounds" as a child. I grew up in an apartment a block away from Proprietor's Park above Tuttie's Variety Store. Gloucester City may very well have been the birthplace of "Rock n' roll" Bill Haley & His Comets — originally a country music band called "Bill Haley and the Saddlemen" — were the house band playing at the Twin Bar for 18 months starting in the early 1950s and are said to have modified their performing style while on stage there to an early form of rock and roll. Gloucester City was founded in 1623 so there are many beautiful historical homes.
As a child, having grown up living in a small 2-bedroom apartment, I had always daydreamed about living in an actual house. It wasn't until August of 2005 that I purchased my very 1st home in Salem, Indiana. I relocated to Sarasota, Florida in March of 2010 and I love Sarasota, Florida and it's rich cultural history. I have worn many hats in the real estate industry. Prior to obtaining my real estate license in the State of New Jersey in 1997 I had worked preparing credit reports for mortgage companies. I have also worked in the closing department of Metropolitan Title Company in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I used to be the final title policy department manager for Goodale Abstract in Angola, Indiana. I started my real estate career in 1996 working as a processor at Prudential Daigle & Gravenstine Realty in Cinnaminson, New Jersey. It is there that I was taken under-the-wing of one of the smartest woman that I have ever had the opportunity of meeting; My former principal broker (The late "Joan Daigle") She taught me so many different things. I miss her dearly. As the days went by my passion for real estate grew. I was an assistant for a multi-million dollar producing real estate duo (John Philbin a/k/a "Jack" and Eileen McStravick. They taught me so many techniques along the way. I obtained my real estate license in April of 1997. My very first sale was a new model home that summer. My experience as a processor has helped me to become a better sales associate. I know ALL of the steps that go into buying and/or selling a home. I want to use my knowledge in the best way that I can to help YOU to achieve your real estate goals...whatever they may be. Whether you are looking to purchase your very first home or maybe your family has outgrown your existing home or you are just ready to make a move!
