Bought a home in 2014.
This is difficult for me to write because I know that it will sound like a fairy tale, but it is true. Sara is a real estate agent that you can totally trust to look after your best interests in the entire process of buying or selling a home. She communicates honestly and fully, knows real estate inside and out, and if she doesn't know the answer to a specific question she will find the answer. We purchased a home with Sara as our agent. We ran into some difficulties that cropped up on the seller's side of the transaction, but she stuck with us, making sure that we knew where we were, and what was going on during in the entire process. Anything we needed, she provided or made sure it was taken care of. Every step of the process, Sara went above and beyond helping us through buying our home and I know that anyone working with Sara would receive the same professional, thorough, caring and expert experience we enjoyed. Thank you for everything, Sara Alvear-Cottman!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Gainesville, FL.
We are very thankfull for Sara's help and guidance through the process of buying a home. Sara has a wonderful understanding of the City of Gainesville, and I would certainly recommend her services. Her professionalism and personable attitude is greatly regarded. The process was made clear due to her constant understanding of where "The Ball was at, and where the next step will be", even though I was working several states away. Thank you for helping me and Juliana build our dream.

Sincerely,

Kevin and Juliana

Bought a home in 2014.
Sara is very warm and friendly. We recently purchased a condo for my two daughters to live in while attending the University of Florida. My husband and I called Sara and told her what we were looking for. Sara and our oldest daughter (already a student at UF) went out looking at properties as we don't live in Gainesville. My daughter felt an immediate connection to Sara. As parents we felt our daughter was with a safe and caring person. Even after the sale, Sara was following up with our daughter, making sure she had the locks changed! In fact, Sara even offered to drive over and help our daughter get the locks changed before she moved in. Sara made the finding the perfect place for our daughters and the purchase was so easy.(We had a remote closing as the sellers are in Boston and we are in Central Florida.) Sara is the best!!

She is highly recommended and her negotiation skills is very awesome. When I first met Sara, She welcomed my family and I with open arms. Any questions I had or asked, Sara responded very quickly. If she did not have the answers, she would find out for me. Sara is awesome.

Bought a home in 2013.
I strongly recommend Sara. She is a very kind agent. She helped me to deal with the difficult seller and his agent for an as-is property in 4 months. Although I walked away from the difficult one, she still tried her best to get my deposit back. Also, she recommended other properties as soon as possible. Finally I got a property and am satisfied. Sara is not only a good agent but a best friend if you would like talk more to them. Her professional comment would help you to decide in a right way and avoid to be a bad situation. That's why I strongly recommend her. :=)

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $50K in Gainesville, FL.
I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience working with Sara. This being my first home purchase, EVERYTHING was foreign and new to me... from making appointments to see the 25 different places we saw to finding the right people for a mortgage, to home owners insurance to inspection to closing etc etc and EVERYTHING in between. Sara was straight-forward and honest about each and every step and I had absolute confidence in what she was telling me. What's more, the many many many hours spent looking at properties, creating spreadsheets for me with what we were seeing the next day, facilitating and standing-in for me for inspections when I was out of town, she did so knowing she was not making a big commission off my relatively small purchase. She is a true professional and I'm sure I'll be working with her again in the upcoming years.
