Second place went to Corcoran’s Sharon Burroughs-Clarke, who worked for three years to close the sale of a townhouse just before New York shut down in March. One of Burroughs-Clarke’s challenges was a determined squatter who repeatedly broke in and eventually had to be evicted for the transaction to proceed. She also had to negotiate a tricky title insurance issue and quash the buyer’s 11th-hour attempt to win a discount.By Erin Hudson for The Real Deal
“Exceptional sales and rentals deals. Outstanding closing while overcoming unique obstacles and challenges” is the criteria used for this award. My deal involved lots of difficult disingenuous characters including a squatter, several attorneys, several buyers, the Courts, the police and the Marshall. I was able to manage both buyers and sellers, coordinate with the attorneys, the Courts and ultimately had a successful closing. I am experienced, confident and knowledgeable in all that is real estate and I am able to negotiate and navigate thru any deal.
