March 1, 1996 with Sharon E. A. Hupprich as the principal broker. Sharon, licensed since 1985, was the sales manager 1987-1996 at Byrne-Brown Realty. Sharon’s specialty is the high-end market; both sales and listings, and welcomes and services first time home buyers with the same professionalism and energy.

Sharon left a Boston teaching hospital administrator’s position to move to St. Thomas when Xerox Corporation transferred her husband Fred. Sharon and Fred have been full time residents and homeowners on St. Thomas since 1981. Fred is the Director of Athletics at the prestigious Antilles School. They share their home and down island view with rescue cats and dog and love entertaining in Paradise.
