Sharon Garner-Thompson

I am energetic, fun, and love to work with people. At the office they call me “fireball”. I was born and raised in Carteret County and know the area like the back of my hand. I am the daughter for Clayton & Terry Garner who own and operate Garner Farm in Newport. After completing school, I worked in retail management and then outside sales for a privately owned collection agency. I began my real estate career in 1999. In the summer months, before beginning my real estate day, I work in my flower gardens and greenhouses where I have developed my own flower business at Garner Farms. I am very active and enjoy all types of sports, animals, and cooking. I love helping buyers find the right property for their needs and I’ll check every detail to be sure there are no surprises. Whether Buying or’ll love working with me.

Client Testimonials:

“This was my 14th move. This is the first time that I have ever had a good experience with an agent or real estate company. In fact after seeing (experiencing) your service, I am not sure I ever really had an agent or company previously. I especially want to thank Sharon Garner and Janet Stout. What they did exceeded every expectation. Thank you Sharon and Janet and all the Star Team.

Phillip A Taylor, Gloucester, NC

“Sharon, you are the best realtor and take that from someone who’s had quite a few. You went the second (and third mile). You are so efficient. We hope we get the chance to recommend you to someone else. Thanks again. We appreciate everything you did and we are so pleased with everything.”

Pege & Ken Bobbitt, Morehead City, NC

“While I’m sure I don’t need to tell you what an asset Sharon is, I’ll tell you anyway. After moving to the area and being totally turned-off by no less than 2 Realtors, I met Sharon. She obviously loves what she does and gave me the impression she actually cared about helping me find the right place to call home. She is heads and shoulders above the crowd and only made me happier with my decision to locate in this community.

Mark Roche, Shelton, CT

They go beyond the call of duty to help you with your real estate needs and desires. They always have time for you and do so with a smile and compassion. Sharon Garner Thompson sold our house for us and we have never been treated to special. She not only befriended us but made us feel “our” interests were really what the contract was about. If you want a picture of customer service you need not look any further than The Star Team.”
