"Sara sold our condo in Evanston in less than a week. On top of that, she was very knowledgeable about the local area and was a genuinely nice person. Selling a place is stressful, but Sara made every interaction a positive and pleasurable one. Thanks Sara! "- Kelly

"I would HIGHLY recommend Sara. As a first time home buyer in the world of short sales in Chicago, Sara was able to easily guide me through the process with her experience as a real estate attorney. She promotes open communication and is very accessible. After "hunting" on two occasions, we had the properties narrowed down and found my place and closed on the short sale in a very short amount of time. I will definitely call upon Sara for any future real estate needs! ."- Eric

"Sara has her client’s back! When she learns just what you are looking for, she’ll do the research to land that exact place. She knows the neighborhoods and value of properties. With her attorney experience, she can write up the negotiations to ensure that her clients get the best pricing. She is sensitive to human nature, but with a positive attitude will educate the buyer or seller during the process, and never gives up. "- Kris

"Sara was a pleasure to work with. We were first home buyers and she made us feel secure in our decision making process and was very patient with us! She was also easily accessible. We have been in our new home for 3 years and love it! "- Ashley

"Sara is thorough, with a contagious upbeat mood. And she sticks to the job; not letting up even though it took more than two years to unload our condo! "- David


About Sara

Sara is an experienced Chicago and North Shore real estate broker specializing in the neighborhoods along Lake Michigan from Evanston to Andersonville to Lincoln Park, from Old Town to the Loop, and from the South Loop to Hyde Park as well as areas immediately west such as Bucktown, Wicker Park, West Loop, and North Center.

Sara has been deeply involved in real estate for twenty plus years, both as a Realtor® and as a real estate attorney in Chicago and Michigan. New construction, vintage, high rise condo, single family home – each type of property requires its own set of knowledge and expertise. Sara has that knowledge and expertise, and ready to represent her client’s best interests.

Whether you are marketing your property to sell in the shortest possible time for the best possible price, or negotiating the best terms for the purchase of your new home, working with Sara means working with an experienced agent, well-versed in marketing and negotiations.

You want to work with an agent who knows the neighborhoods in order to have the best possible experience when you buy or sell your home. Whether you're in one of Evanston's many fine neighborhoods (did you know there are 12 public elementary schools in Evanston?) or in Lincoln Park, Streeterville, West Loop, Lakeview, Andersonville, River North, Edgewater, Roscoe Village, Old Town, Wrigleyville, Little Italy, South Loop, Ukrainian Village, Wicker Park or Bucktown - each is unique and wonderful in its own way. She knows and understand all of them (and more) and is there to help you. She knows Chicago and the North Shore, and she knows real estate!

Beyond knowing the Neighborhoods, Sara will help you connect with an excellent lender, an experienced real estate attorney, a thorough home inspector, a quality contractor or decorator if you want to make changes before listing or after closing, and can assist with utility hook-ups and movers.

Sara is here to help you buy or sell your home - call to discuss Chicago area real estate - she loves to talk business!
