"Sarah is absolutely fantastic! I was initially looking for a condo or townhouse, and she must have sent me hundreds of listings to get a sense of what I liked and what I didn’t like (e.g., size, layout, location, etc.). She was always patient, understanding, and quick to provide insight about things I hadn’t considered. About 3 months into the search, I told her that I wanted to change direction and focus on single family homes. Within weeks she found me the perfect bungalow, and it wasn’t even on the market yet. The house is in a great neighborhood within a block of a park and public transportation. She helped me negotiate down, and I got an amazing deal! All along the way, she was able to help me navigate the home buying process. She connected me with the right mortgage lender and an excellent real estate attorney who made the buying process easy. I couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone who is looking to buy or sell." - Rich C.

"We worked with Sarah to rent a unit in West Town, she was hands down the best broker I have ever worked with! She listens to the must have and nice to haves and really is able to make great recommendations for units and locations! We were on a short time line to rent our unit and she still was able to come up with numerous options to consider and look at. I look forward to working with Sarah again in the future."

"Sarah quickly understood what type of home I was looking for and where I needed to be. She was vigilant in her monitoring of listings and ultimately found me a great place. She was patient and encouraging. I trusted Sarah had my best interest at heart. Her communications were clear and timely. I truly enjoyed getting to know Sarah and highly recommend her. She also has a good sense of humor which helps as you spend time in the home hunting process."
