Top Listing & Selling Agent, Real Estate Salesperson CT (13 years experience)
It was such a pleasure having Sara guide me through the process of selling my home. Her extensive experience, unique skill set, vast resources, expertise, and personable nature combined to deliver results that far exceeded my expectations on every aspect of the process. She listens carefully to each client’s needs, tailors a personalized plan of action, and always made sure that I, as the seller, was comfortable with each step. Sara checks in frequently, but never wastes anyone’s time, and she isn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and help out when necessary. She is gracious and warm but a solid negotiator. Sara has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the real estate market and works extremely well with clients, contractors, and other real estate brokers – all very helpful to ensure a smooth and exceptional outcome. In short, I couldn’t be happier that I chose Sara to sell my house. She made what could have been a stressful, time consuming process one that was fun, quick, and successful.
We can not say enough good things about Sara. We were first time home buyers in a tight market, which resulted in an extended search, and multiple lost bids. Sara's patience with us was truly exemplary. In addition, her knowledge of the house inspection process (she is nearing qualification to be an inspector) as well as her contacts around the neighborhood (she knows all the major contractors, painters, plumbers, painters, etc) means that her help was invaluable through every stage of the process. Finally, he has gone above and beyond by putting us in touch of other folks new to the town.
We are new homeowners, so we don't have a lot of experience, but Sara has smashed every expectation we've had of what a Realtor can or could do.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.2M in Darien, CT.
In our specific case we were searching for a realtor who could deal with listing and selling our house during our absence. We are currently enjoying time away in Europe. Having read Sara's reviews it seemed more than clear that she could handle the task. Our house is currently rented out and she has very effectively and courteously dealt with the renters, the property manager, the potential buyer and all the details and paperwork related to getting a property sold. We have literally managed the whole process through email. Sara is a wonderful professional and very dedicated to her clients.
Sold a Multi Family home in 2013 in Cove - East Side, Stamford, CT.
If you are looking for a listing agent in lower Fairfield county, Sara Littlefield is literally the best choice you could make. I found her through her glowing online reviews. We are retiring and have bought and sold 3 homes so we were not new to the process. At first, I was skeptical that any realtor deserved the ratings she had received. Now, after she has successfully led us through every step in the sale of our Stamford penthouse condo, I can only concur wholeheartedly. Sara provided expert advise on preparing our property and reviews of the local contractors we would need. She monitored every step of the prep. She helped us come to the best listing strategy and we were in contract within days after we listed, for 3% HIGHER than our asking price.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.375M in Darien, CT.

She also has terrific resources including attorneys, contractors and designers to help make your home perfect. We are absolutely delighted to have worked with Sara to find our home in Darien.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.3M in Darien, CT.
We had planned to interview 3 realtors, but Sara was the only one who, on 1st meet, had done her homework on the property. Maps were laid out on the table & she was ready to go. She has great contacts re Estate Sale, interior painting & repairs, and a super closing lawyer. In promoting the property, Sara shines. She created a video w/ a builder that showed the house as is while showing photos of how it could be --all the possibilities both outside and in. Since the house is unique, this was an appealing tool in expediting the sale, and Sara recognizes the power of media. She is a highly energetic hard worker & upbeat--a pleasure to work with.
Sara, was always there to help with any special needs associated with prepping the house for sale, providing technical support i.e. subcontractors to prep and maintain the house and grounds during the selling period and advice during the negotiations.
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Darien, CT.
Sara was referred to us by a trusted luxury NY property real estate agent. She was instrumental in all phases of the process. Prior to listing, Sara provided tasteful recommendations from landscaping to staging, and recommending contractors and professionals in preparation to placing the house on the market .Sara works smart, hard and results driven. She has a command of the market and skillful in marketing our home.
Excellent at managing conflict and chaos between buyers/sellers through her poised and professional demeanor. It's a pleasure working with Sara and highly recommend her in working on your behalf as a buyer or seller.
Found a tenant for a Multi Family home in Glenbrook, Stamford, CT.
We were referred to Sara by our long time Realtor when he stepped out of the market to pursue other venues. Yes - all Realtors need to have local knowledge and Yes - all Realtors need to be personable, but on top of that Sara is very well connected. She was able to rent out both my properties in a flash! My wife and i foresee a long and prosperous relationship between us and Sara. I would recommend her without any reservations. Simplest way to put it would be.. She knows what she is doing and she is very good at it.
Sara helped us to find and buy our first home, and guided us through the entire process, from finding the right financing to the legal advice. And even after closure she stayed in touch, recommended good contractors, and moreover - introduced us to many like-minded people in the area. Later Sara helped us to rent out the house, and over the last three years of being a rental it was thanks to her vigilance that it stayed in the marketable shape. It only shows how long-term and solid Sara's commitment is once you start working with her. Her professionalism aside, Sara also has a remarkable personality, and it's a pleasure knowing her.
