Sharon Medley


Transaction Coordinator & Assistant
Sharon is a highly organized assistant and escrow coordinator on whom Team McGinnis relies to facilitate smooth transactions. When it comes down to it, buying and selling houses involves a lot of paperwork. As soon as an offer is accepted on a house, there are all kinds of documents that need to go from here to there and sometimes back again. The city needs ‘this,’ the title company needs ‘that’ and the county needs yet something else. Sharon keeps it all straight and helps ensure everyone gets what they need – and on time.
