"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 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
