I wish I could give them 10 stars!!!! The entire experience with working with Meryll and Sharron was beyond my families expectations. My mother required more care and we had to move her out of her home in Leisure Village. We were planning to use our dearest family friend to list the home as we trusted her. Sharron had approached me one day to say that she knew my mother and grandmother personally and if she could help in anyway, she would. After much thought, and speaking with other realtors, we decided to go with Sharron and Meryll since they were very familiar with the community. That was the best decision, as they handled everything!!!! They staged the house for no cost to us- and it looked so warm and inviting. Not only did they stage, but Meryll herself, moved furniture and cleaned to make everything look more attractive. They went beyond by setting up inspections, meeting the handy man (since I couldn’t), scheduling donations and trash pick-ups, as well as having the landscape brought up to association standards. If I couldn’t be there, Meryll was there, making it so convenient. Further, they were always in communication with what needed to be done and would answer my questions within a day! I felt that utilizing a realtor who lives in the community was a benefit, as they knew the community, what forms needed to be completed as well as the association guidelines that needed to be followed. It made the world of difference! I am so grateful for everything that Meryll and Sharron have done for our family! They made a stressful and emotional situation, stress-free. Priceless! We are so appreciative of their hard work, dedication, compassion and integrity with selling our family home.
Sharron Parker and Meryll Russell are an awesome Mother/Daughter Real Estate team. Having lived in Leisure Village for years and serving on the Architectural Committee, Sharron knows what is required to pass the Village Inspection. She knows how to make your tired house sparkle with a fresh look. And she knows “PEOPLE”. People who will remove used furniture that the charities won’t pick up, remove trash, renovate the paint, flooring, electrical, plumbing, check for termites, replace the garage door, clean, wash windows. There is nothing these ladies don’t cover with qualified, fairly priced, available people. Then Meryll stages with just the right items to give potential buyers the look of a home. They know the market and the importance of setting the price to attract the right buyer. They listen to the seller and share advice to achieve the best offer. Meryll is an expert walking you through the electronic paperwork. From planning-to-sell to closing, this team is always available and spot on to make the journey as painless as possible. You can trust WE SELL LEISURE VILLAGE.
When it came time to sell our Mom’s home in Leisure Village, we thought about using a friend as our Realtor, but thought we’d interview a local broker just to be sure. We are so glad we did! We had no idea how different selling a home in Leisure Village is. Sharron & Meryll walked us through all the Leisure Village escrow paperwork, the exterior inspection report and took care of hiring trades people to get all the items on the LV list repaired. They even filled out the paperwork to bring all permits up-to-date. They knew all the right people to help us update the home so we could get the highest price possible. Who knew that new flooring, paint, smooth ceilings, lighting, etc. could make such a world of difference? They helped us to understand that buyers in Leisure Village often feel overwhelmed with the thought of fixing up a home, so making it move-in condition was the best idea. They even knew people who could come pick up any furniture we didn’t want anymore, since so many donation places are not accepting large furniture these days. We got multiple offers the first weekend and escrow closed in less than a month. We can’t imagine selling a house in Leisure Village without these experts on our side. Thank you!
Meryll Russell and Sharron Parker are simply exceptional. They are knowledgeable, capable, candid and transparent – an absolute pleasure to work with. They helped make the move across the country to Leisure Village Camarillo for my Mother in Law and her husband as efficient as possible – always with a smile and a ‘can do spirit’ that simply has no equal. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them. Our experience is not unique – everyone that knows them has the same things to say. They are simply the best, most capable realtors to work with.
I highly recommend “We Sell Leisure Village”. From our first phone call with Sharron Parker to every subsequent interaction with Jon Niemann and Meryll Russell, my son and I knew we were in good hands. Jon in particular was instrumental in helping me find the right condo in what can only be described as an extremely tight and fast-moving market. He was always available to meet us and answer all our questions. The entire team went above and beyond in getting rid of the red stake plants I didn’t want and in recommending companies to do various necessary repairs on the property prior to and through the closing process. Their help and demeanor made what would have been a stressful and overwhelming process bearable and even fun at times. I can’t recommend them highly enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
When we needed to sell our late mother’s home, Sharron and Meryll made everything SO doable. They prepared our mother’s house beautifully for showing and handled all the details on our behalf. All we had to do was approve the steps as they ran them by us. We were able to sell the house quickly at a reasonable price, even in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis. We would enthusiastically recommend them for preparing and selling your Leisure Village property.
Wonderful and complete service. Professional and helpful. Sharron knows every inch of Leisure Village and is generous with her time and knowledge. Our transactions were efficient, easy and pleasant thanks to her hard work.
I am a seller in Leisure Village (LV) and my property closed moments ago. Sharron and Meryll were absolutely superb. I cannot imagine how I could have received any finer service. They assisted with all aspects of the sale, including removal of unwanted old property, repainting and carpeting, staging, dealing with LV and buyer inspection issues, escrow company, etc., etc. I absolutely give them my highest possible recommendation, and heartfelt thanks.
My husband and I decided that our next move should be Leisure Village in Camarillo, CA. Sharron and her team were recommended to us. Their service was outstanding, efficient and pleasant. Not only did they give up their Christmas Eve to write our offer, but they were able close our escrow in 30 days. This was remarkable since we had to deal with all the holidays, loan requirements, inspections and escrow. I highly recommend Sharron and her team of professionals.
Sharon has extensive sales experience in Leisure Village, a 55+ gated community in Camarillo CA. She knows all the rules and regulations that LV requires and anticipates and informs you, in my case, as the seller what to expect. There was immediate traffic as the property went on to the MLS. She kept us current and up to date on all business-related procedures, viewings, offers and the process once an acceptable offer occurred (within less than 2 weeks of the property on the market). All handled with professionalism. If you are interested in selling or buying property in Leisure Village, I encourage you to consider Sharron Parker to assist you.
Sharron was wonderful to work with in selling our Leisure Village home. She was pleasant, thoughtful, responsive, quick to get things moving, and extremely helpful. We live on the East Coast, and she took care of finding people to clean and do repairs for us. She made what could have been a difficult experience seamless and easy. We definitely recommend Sharron!
Sharron has incredible knowledge and experience as pertains to Leisure Village specifically and Camarillo in general. I would not have purchased my home at Leisure Village without her patience, responsiveness, and intimate knowledge of the community.
Sharon, and her team, at RE/Max Gold Coast, provided exceptional service. She made recommendations for upgrades, improvements, etc for a quick sell. She also provided recommendations for vendors that provided quality work. Less than a day on the market and the house sold. We had a few bumps in the road, in the process, (none of which were her errors) and she and her team calmed each one. Her knowledge of the area, process, and realistic expectations added confidence to the challenges of home selling. I interviewed numerous agents to select the right one, and we made the right choice.
Sharron is an outstanding real estate professional whose expertise provided us with timely, accurate and insightful guidance as we navigated through a real estate purchase process. She anticipates issues and questions which she addresses effectively and concisely. Everything was managed with a calm and deliberate demeanor and all deadlines were met; no surprises! I would rely on Sharron for future real estate representations without hesitation. It has been a great pleasure working with her!
Sharron is extremely knowledgeable and has the staff and expertise to get the job done quickly. We listed on a Wednesday and were in escrow on Sunday. We were very pleased. Escrow closed without any issues.
Sharon was very supportive and helpful in finding our perfect home in Leisure Village in Camarillo. She patiently took us on several unsuccessful tours when we were visiting from New York and learned what we wanted from what we rejected. Shortly after an unsuccessful tour, she showed our son a house that had just come on the market which our son and Sharon knew it was what we wanted. She then helped the long distance transaction go smoothly.
Sharron is a professional. She was an expert at determining my needs and situation in finding the right home. Her expertise in the process and her follow through was amazing. Answers to questions were spot-on and responses were quick. I had problem with the climate control after the close of escrow, Sharron did not hesitate to point me in the right direction to solve that issue and get the help I needed. Her outstanding reputation in the area proved to be well deserved.
Sharon was my agent 19 yrs ago when I bought my house in Leisure Village. She is very professional and friendly. Her team has been agent for my rental. They take care of all problems or business regarding this condo. I can highly recommend her as a honest and efficient agent.
When the idea of moving to Leisure Village came to me, I looked online for realtors specializing in that specific area, Sharron appeared to have all that I was looking for.

We found a home we loved quickly because of her familiarity of the listings. She worked for us with attention to details all through the escrow. Now we are owners and look forward to remaining friends. Highly recommend her.
Sharron is the poster child of professionalism and attention to detail. She recently helped us sell our fathers home after he passed away and she made the experience effortless and she helped us to secure a higher than asking price offer for the sale. She was pleasant at every turn and we would highly recommend Sharron for the sale of your home. If you don’t have Sharron selling your home, you have second best.
Sharron is an amazing realtor. She knows her inventory and is the consummate professional. She was with us from beginning to end of our transaction and is still available to answer questions months later. I would definitely recommend Sharron to people who want the ultimate in service in the Camarillo area.

The fact that you knew our parents and the house was very special to us. You and your team were so easy to work with and did a wonderful job. Thank you so much for everything.
It is with much pleasure that I write this Letter of Reference for Sharron Parker. Sharron worked with us as a realtor in selling our home in Leisure Village.
From the first day, Sharron impressed me with her knowledge and expertise in the housing market in Leisure Village. She knows the market, the homes, the comparables, and the inventory, and we had complete trust in her judgment.
The suggested repairs and upgrades to the house were excellent, and the results were impressive. The listing price she suggested was perfect. The staging of the house was gorgeous and flawless. Once the house was listed, it looked amazing, warm, and inviting.
Within the first week of listing our home, we had three excellent offers, and the home went into escrow and closed right away with no problems. She expertly handled all the paperwork and everything went smoothly and easily.
In addition to being highly knowledgeable and professional, Sharron was absolutely delightful, sweet, and wonderful to work with. She is kind, personable, and easy to talk to. It was an absolute pleasure working with her.

I am looking forward to planting my roots in Village 44. Thank you for taking a personal interest in my happiness. It is a wonderful feeling to know of the compassion you bring to the situation beyond the rote paperwork and business of real estate. You exemplify a caring soul whom I appreciate and feel blessed to have met. My gratitude goes out to you.
Best to you for a happy & loving journey into your golden years.
Peace & many blessings,
Sharron Parker has done a great job helping us prepare our Leisure Village home for sale on the market.
She has been professional throughout, always returns phone calls & follows through with everything she says she’s going to do.
I wouldn’t hesitate to refer Sharron, and in fact I already have.
Good morning Sharron,
Thank you for the wonderful tour of Leisure Village on Saturday. My wife and I truly enjoyed the wealth of information, as well as the personal attention you devoted to us. We are most appreciative. I also reviewed the Leisure Village newsprint and enjoyed both your columns, very informative indeed. I also came across the recent flood zone update, which caught me by surprise. Several years ago when I was a Banker, it wasn’t an issue.
My wife and I have made up our minds to move to Leisure Village, hopefully by this year. We prefer an Amalfi, second phase, out of the flood zone area…..is this possible? Additionally we would prefer a unit that has been in better care, enabling us to simply move in as opposed to fixing up, painting, replacing windows and carpeting. We would one as we have seen, with a lower price. Then I would invest in new windows, etc. before we would move in.
Our plans are to close escrow on our duplex in L.A. (slated to close by June 25th) sell our SFR (I will attempt to sell For Sale By Owner) & rent until an Amalfi we like hits the market. We will definitely ask that you represent us as buyers.
You have been a part of our journey from the VERY beginning and we are finally at a resting point, where we can begin to LIVE and enjoy the beautiful surroundings, family and friends – and SOME DAY the actual “leisure” that is promised in the name of our community – although I cannot imagine that time yet. Some day.
Thanks to you for your patience, support and professional guidance as we struggled through this challenging transition. We love our new home and there are many reminders throughout it of the times we spent with you planning, deciding, comparing and even kvetching!
Thanks also for the beautiful orchid and the card – they are lovely, just like you!
But the best gift of all is your friendship – we are so grateful that our paths have crossed and we look forward to spending more quality time together in the coming years.
I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get around to this however John & I would like to tell you how much we appreciate the amount of time and effort you put into the sale of my home and we are certainly happy with the results. You went above and beyond the call of duty in assisting us in getting the house ready for sale. You were with us every step of the way, as well as guiding us through the close of escrow.
Not only are you a fabulous realtor, but I value you as a friend. As we mentioned before, it would be our pleasure to refer you to anyone.
I have worked with Sharon on several home sales and purchases and I recommend her as highly as I possibly can. She has expertise, experience, patience and carefully listens!
Professional. Efficient. Responsive. Three words that immediately come to mind. Sharron and Meryll helped us through a very fast 21-days escrow with an inherited property. The home sold the very first day it was listed! They were always ready to help and made an emotionally difficult time so much better than we expected. Sharron and Meryll will make you feel like you are their only client, whether your property is large or small. Highly recommend!
Excellent service and communication. Very knowledgeable on Leisure Village Association policies. Informative of architectural guidelines. Informative of significant changes and amended bylaws.
