Sarah Minard understands that buying or selling a house is one of the biggest financial decisions her clients can make. She couples her experience in real estate and background in the financial sector with her strong interpersonal skills to help her clients find the perfect home them. But Sarah's expert knowledge of real estate isn't just on the financial side – she's moved 21 times and lived in five countries, making her connection to real estate a deeply personal one.
In her spare time, you'll find Sarah with her son and partner on the Potomac River competing as an outrigger canoeist and stand-up paddler. She has completed the Chattajack race four times – an endurance race that covers 31 miles on the Tennessee River and raises money an environmental conservancy organization.

★★★★★"We weren't intending to purchase a new house and when the perfect property dropped into out lap, Sarah helped up lay out the necessary steps, structure a competitive offer, and then helped up to stay patient through the four month closing process. Her initiative with the sellers' agent kept the process moving and us informed. Definitely recommended, especially for complicated purchases involving long-time tenants and remote owners."
★★★★★"We absolutely lucked out when we found Sarah on Zillow! She showed us a wide variety of places in DC, and we ended up purchasing a house that was a little tricky- it wasn’t listed on the market yet and it was for by owner. Sarah kept frequent contact with the seller to make sure renovations were being completed on time, and she negotiated our purchase so that the house never went on the market and we didn’t have to get in a bidding war. Sarah is professional, kind, quick to handle any issues that come up, and extremely helpful. I would recommend her to anyone"
★★★★★"Sarah was fabulous - knew the DMV market, was effective at identifying neighborhoods that worked us. She knows the process, explained it patiently and clearly. Her responsiveness was almost immediate. Finally - she was very effective and engaging constructively with the opposing realtor. "
