Sharon, MA - Several  years back I was struggling to balance my work in corporate America with the demands of my family. The number one problem for working parents, I would guess! Long work days, and business travel would not allow me to drop off or pick up my children from schools in Sharon, MA, attend their special school events, volunteer in their schools... and more.

Sharon, MA If you buy a home in Sharon, MA you may come to feel like Norm from Cheers. Living in Sharon can feel like a place where everybody knows your name. For example, I grew up in Sharon, lived here until I got married, moved away and came back with my husband four years later. One day when we first moved back, I went to the Sharon Public Library to get a new library card under my married name. I was so excited to be back in a place I absolutely love!    The librarian greeted me warmly, we caught up with each other and then she said, "You have an outstanding fine of...." That's what happens when they know your name.  Here's another one. The Sharon Post Office. This is a great place for them to know your name as long as your picture isn't also hanging up there.
