"Sarah was fantastic! We were first time home-buyers and while we googled as much as possible to help, there were so many little (and big) things we had no idea about. In a process that is ambiguous, difficult, and overwhelmingly, Sarah was our rock. She was with us every step of the way and provided us options and guidance that we desperately needed. We never felt pressured and it was obvious she had our best interests at heart. I would highly recommend her to any serious homebuyer!" - Travis

"Sarah helped us to find an apartment to rent. We first tried it on our own but quickly realized that it turned out to be a hopeless undertaking, since we are not from the US. From the beginning on Sarah supported us by asking the right questions. She sent new listings almost daily so that we had a great overview about all the options we had. However, we did not feel compelled to make overhasty decisions at any time and did not hesitate to ask many questions which Sarah answered patiently and right away. She informed us permanently throughout the process. Since we corresponded via email most of the time, we appreciated that she replied our emails very rapidly. Most impressive, however, was Sarah's local knowledge. She knew important facts about the neighborhoods and was therefore able to recommend suitable neighborhoods and homes according to our needs and ideas. We highly recommend her service to anyone who looks for high professional AND interpersonal skills!" - Ribana

"Sarah is honestly the real deal when it comes to real estate agents. She takes her job very seriously and treats her clients with the utmost respect and consideration. I never had to chase her to respond to me---she replied to emails and messages quickly and thoroughly. This is a quality I believe is of the upmost importance given that you can lose good real estate opportunities if you don't act quickly. Sarah helped me purchase an investment property. She was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods that were good areas in which to invest, and she helped me find an incredible deal. She was knowledgeable about the purchasing process from start to finish. She attended the closing to ensure it went smoothly, which it did. This is in part due to the fact that Sarah connected me with a competent lender and attorney. Lastly, Sarah also has great interpersonal skills so she is enjoyable to work with (important when you are spending a lot of time with your agent!). I will recommend Sarah highly to friends and family because I know they will have an excellent experience" - Carla

"Sarah helped my sell my condo. She was always on top of things, very communicative and a pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable and was a big help negotiating with the buyer. I am a mortgage loan officer and I also send Sarah my customers and I always feel at ease that she will take great care of them!" - Keisen
