Sharon’s true love and avocation is real estate and although she tutored and consulted in the field of education as her children grew up, her hobby was to buy, renovate, and sell older homes.

Sharon and Jim currently live in a large old Victorian near Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs which they renovated over a 5-year time frame.
