While I have not worked with Sandi as a realtor, she was hosted myself and a group of friends for a week in Newport in October 2013 through AirBnB. Sandi was such a wonderful host and made our experience the best possible. We were a bigger group of friends competing in a sailing event, so our schedule was a bit unusual, but we were made to feel welcome and Sandi gave us so many tips on where to eat or go out, how to get around, etc. Not to mention the lovely house and neighborhood. Sandi was easy, proactive and responsive to communicate with and truly interested in our different stories and making us comfortable, so I can only imagine her being an equally great realtor.

Thanks Uta! I loved having you guys, and when you're ready for a permanent home in Newport (nudge nudge) so you can sail here whenever you want, I'm your girl!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Newport, RI.
Sandi Warner, Esq. really loves her job! She recognizes that finding you a solid and safe home is you finding your sanctuary, your safe place, and your place of warmth and growth. She made that apparent within minutes when I met her at an open house. Prior to meeting Ms. Warner, I had zero success with agents, mostly because they never stop to understand my needs or wants in a home—but Ms. Warner stopped and asked questions and heard me. She took the time to learn and be attuned to what attracted me to a home and what didn’t. Sandi paid attention to the subtleties that I liked in a property and was able to show me only the listings that interested me—no wild goose chases. Sandi is passionate about her clients’ getting that right fit and making informed decisions and she is fluent and up-to-date on the housing market. If a property had any areas of concern she gave honest and realistic feedback on any potential setbacks that may need restoration or repairs. Sandi also connected me to specialists and professionals who came on site to give an estimate on repairs before I made any offers on a home. She went out of her way to advocate for me getting that right fit. She has solid negotiating skills, knows what’s worth what, and always steered me in the right direction. She is honest, straightforward, and has a stick-to-itiveness about her—so she doesn’t give up even if you do. She partners with you—its her priority too that you find the home that’s your best fit and she safely leads you down that path. I strongly recommend Sandi to be your agent, as you will definitely be her priority!

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Middletown, RI.
Sandi expeditiously and professionally delivered outstanding service meeting my immediate housing requirement. Her intimate knowledge of the Aquidneck Island area and personal network inspired confidence. I highly recommend Sandi and her realty company to those seeking relocation services to the Newport, RI area.
Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Middletown, RI.
After attempting to rent my house on my own, the decision to have Sandi represent me was the right one. She has extensive local knowledge and found a tenant who was the perfect fit. Sandi kept open communication at all times, meticulously screening each applicant before reporting to me for my approval. All was handled professionally, from a personal tour of the property to the best possible photography to a well-narrated listing and, finally, to the lease, funds collection, introductions and being available at a moment's notice for waiting for the cable guy, turning on the utilities, and anything else we may have needed. Above all, the house was rented in less than 30 days!
I will continue to list exclusively with Sandi, and I have no doubt she will keep my property occupied for years to come.

Thanks Kristin! Having a terrific piece of property and a professional landlord who takes meticulous care of their property makes the job really easy!
My family has been in real estate for over 4 generations and I've got to say Sandi is by far one of the best real estate agents that we have the pleasure of working with. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants a stress free time. She really looks out for you. She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly and is a complete go getter and she will find you the perfect tenant to rent your apartment!

Thank you for your generous praise! I know how important it is to get the right person in the right property! Our property is our biggest investment and attention to every detail makes the experience great for owners, buyers and sellers.
Sandi has been in the hospitality and sales business for many years and it is evident when you work with her. She's incredibly personable, thorough and quick to respond. She has helped me to find renters for my two properties and has helped friends find homes to rent as well. Sandi will always go above and beyond to make sure your needs are met. I highly recommend her.
Helped me rent a Multi Family home in St Anthony East, Minneapolis, MN.
Sandi is smart, friendly, knowledgeable, caring, and responsive. She gets to know your needs and works hard to make sure they are met. She's a local and knows all the best spots in town (fabulous restaurant recommendations). Her knowledge of the area and market runs deep. She's the best combination--knowledgeable, client-focused, and personable. Needless to say, I highly recommend her!
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Newport, RI.
I met Sandi during a short term rental at her house in Newport. We immediately clicked and I really enjoyed her company. She is very knowledgeable of the area and gave us tons of tips for things to do. She always responded very quick to any questions we would have and was great at reaching out to us. I would at any time recommend her for real Estate. Sandi is a very pleasant person to do business with.

Thanks Julie for the kind words! Newport and greater Rhode Island has SO much to offer!
We had a seamless and smooth experience of using Sandi. Sandi's approachable and professional manner made our transatlantic transaction a very easy one.
Before we booked we had several questions that needed to be answered, her response was both swift and friendly.
We have already recommended Sandi to friends and family and we would not hesitate in dealing with her again. Her local knowledge meant that our stay in RI was most enjoyable.
