deasypennerpodley is excited to announce Sharon Baum as a new agent to our Westside family.
Sharon Baum has helped more than 200 clients achieve their real estate goals since obtaining her license in 2012, earning a 2014 Realtors® Choice Award in the process. Sharon understands that real estate transactions can be an emotional journey; she takes the time to explain what clients can expect emotionally, honoring their feelings and assuaging their stresses throughout the process. For this reason, she most loves collaborating with first-time homebuyers and clients experiencing significant life changes.
Before beginning her real estate career, Sharon spent 13 years doing internet marketing for a large corporation. This, along with being a single parent to three children, gave her the creative thinking and interpersonal skills to expertly manage situations where emotions run high and problems need quick solutions. She is uniquely braced to decompress any situation by leading with integrity, generosity of spirit, and a sense of humor.
In real estate, Sharon is driven by the joy of having offers accepted for her buyers or sellers, allowing her clients the opportunity to move forward. Outside of real estate, she continues making a difference in people’s lives and in the community with a philanthropic mindset and an upbeat approach. Sharon serves all of Los Angeles and particularly loves working in the stunning and historic Echo Park neighborhood. She is a student of historic home preservation, historic architecture, and design.
Sharon moved to California from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, in January 2020 to fulfill her lifelong dream of immersing herself in Los Angeles’ architecture, history, amazing views, and rich textures. An artist at heart, she uses her eye for design as an amateur photographer. Sharon is known to get lost in research, reading and writing about local history, mysteries of old Hollywood, and other curiosities. When working with historical properties, she takes great joy in researching the history of a house or building, and sharing relevant findings with her clients to make their experience one of a kind.
