Real Results

“We worked with Sarah to buy our first house and she was extremely helpful, prompt, and very knowledgeable of the process. We also were able to negotiate through her with the seller to increase the value on the buy side pretty substantially from the asking price. We have now outgrown our house and are using her as our listing agent. She has been very helpful and knowledgeable so far and she even had a professional photographer come take pictures of our home for the listing! Would definitely recommend whether you are buying or selling!”
