Sharon Benson

It’s Sharon's great sense of adventure that compels her and her husband, Barry, to take a quick weekend getaway to see the famous Iditarod dog sled race in Alaska…or to take a quick 4-day shopping trip to Istanbul with a friend…

It’s her keen sense of humor that brought her to throw a April Fools' Day Surprise 40th birthday for her husband….on his 39th birthday! Or to hide Barry’s wallet in the freezer so that his cash would not burn a hole in his pocket!

And it’s her fierce loyalty and dedication to her clients that repeatedly inspires them to send their friends and family to Sharon Benson when they need a Realtor.

Sharon has been a top residential Broker in Pierce County since 1995. Respected by her peers, Sharon was elected to be the 2016 President of the Tacoma Pierce County Association of Realtors and was the 2016 Realtor of the Year. She & her husband, Barry, had previously been awarded the Community Service Award. Sharon is a Seattle Magazine Five Star Real Estate Agent for client satisfaction and Showcase Magazine's Real Estate Agent of the Year.

Sharon is simply the best!
Sharon went above and beyond to help our family find the right home. After looking for multiple years and writing multiple offers, Sharon helped us secure the home we intend to raise our children in. She was always welcoming, warm, and responsive to our needs. We can’t thank you enough...
