COPPERAS COVE, TEXAS, USA, June 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sharon Greenwood is an accomplished, caring, well-informed, extremely diligent and skilled Real Estate Agent with EXIT Heart of Texas Realty in Copperas Cove, Texas.
Sharon was born in Nuremberg, Germany, due to her father being stationed there, serving in the United States Army. Nuremberg is rich with history. The imperial courts met here, and every newly elected emperor was obligated by decree to hold his first Imperial Diet at Kaiserburg. The castle at the circular Sinwell Tower dates to the 14th century and there’s an observation platform at the top floor where you can marvel at the best panorama of the city. Sheltered in half-timbered houses in the courtyard below is the Tiefer Brunnen (Deep Well), which bores 50 meters into the sandstone. The Palas, which was used for the castle’s official functions, has been reworked several times since the Middle Ages and has a museum filling you in on Kaiserburg’s elevated position in the Holy Roman Empire.
Although Sharon was born and raised in Germany, she was considered to be an American and did not have dual citizenship. She grew up speaking both English and German fluently and being bi-lingual, this served her well. She says, “I love Germany and never wanted to leave. There are so many experiences that I had growing up that I cherish to this day. I feel very blessed to have been able to grow up there as a ‘Military Brat’ and to be able to travel to the United States when my father got orders.”
Sharon’s family moved frequently to different areas for different duty-stations including Fort Carson, Colorado and Fort Benning, Georgia before moving back to Germany where Sharon graduated from Nuremberg American High School, while her father was in Vietnam.
Sharon says, “We lived 30 minutes from the base and my Oma Frieda lived with us on the economy. There were no government quarters available, so I was able to grow up with horses, which I love dearly and I still own horses today. My dad retired from Active-Duty and then worked for the Army-Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and always stayed connected to the Military.”
Sharon met her future husband, Charles Greenwood, at a Country Club in Nuremberg called “The Nashville.” He was briefly stationed at O’Brien Barracks in Schwabach and also was from Michigan, just like her father. They got married in Germany and then Charlie got orders to go to Fort Hood in Texas where they lived for 18 months before PCS’ing back to Germany where Charlie was stationed at the U.S. Military Base in Darmstadt for 4 years. He was also deployed to Bosnia one of those four years.
Sharon and Charlie have three children – Steve, Charlene, and Scott. When Charlie completed his Military service, the family moved to Michigan where he got his water-well drilling license and Sharon worked at a water testing lab. Charlie re-enlisted in the Army and was again, assigned to Fort Hood, Texas, as a mechanic working on Army vehicles. Sharon got her Real Estate license here in 2004 and they bought several properties.
During this time, Charlie was deployed several times to the Middle East. Their final duty-station was in Hawaii where Charlie served at Fort Shafter and Schofield Barracks. Sharon says, “I loved living in Hawaii, it was truly paradise. The water, mountains, oceans, temperature, it was so beautiful. I even had a pineapple patch and went to hula dancing classes every week on the post!”
Because the Greenwood’s owned commercial and residential properties in Texas, they decided to live there permanently after Charlie retired from the Army after 20+ years and Sharon, once again, did Real Estate full time. She says, “My whole career has been helping Veterans and I love doing VA loans. I was elated when I found out that the National Association of Realtors offered the Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification and I was very proud to earn it. I wish that I had an MRP when we bought our houses the first time to help guide us. It’s so important to have an agent who understands each individual situation. Now, I am the one who can honestly say that I can assist Active-Duty families and Veterans in all of their Real Estate needs, whether they are buying or selling a home. Being a “Military Brat” and “Military Spouse” I want to give the best possible service to those who are serving and have served. It is an honor, a privilege and joy for me to be able to do so and living in the Fort Hood community are ideal for me to do what I do.”
Due to Sharon’s love of horses and Real Estate knowledge, one of her specialties is locating horse properties. “If you own horses and you’re looking for property to keep your horses, I’m your expert. You want to contact me!”
Fort Hood is located in Killeen, Texas, situated between Austin and Waco, about 60 miles from each city. Its origin was the need for wide-open space to test and train with World War II tank destroyers. As originally constructed, Fort Hood had an area of 158,706 acres with billeting for 6,007 officers and 82,610 enlisted personnel. Fort Hood is the most populous U.S. military installation in the world. The main business area is in Bell County, with the training countryside area of the post in Coryell County. Fort Hood has over 45,414 assigned soldiers and 8,900 civilian employees with Fort Hood covering 214,000 acres.
The communities that Sharon serves in Central Texas are Copperas Cove, Killeen and Harker Heights. She is always available to assist Veterans and Active-Duty families who are moving to or from Fort Hood.
