Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.
We had a great experience! She was not only knowledgeable but every time we were interested in a home she did surrounding area research and brought information regarding what the current area market was doing, had printed comps with her, along with area school information. She was very easy to work with and made a normally stressful time much more enjoyable as it should be when buying a new home. I would highly recommend her to all my friends and family, and to anyone who wants a smooth purchase experience. I would absolutely use Sara Jorissen again for any future purchases. Doug Scott
Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $175K in University City, San Diego, CA.
Sara helped us to short sell our condo. We were originally quite nervis about the whole process having heard different stories, but knowing that Sara has experienced a lot of successful short sales, we decided to go ahead with the process. She is very personable and pleasure to work with. The sale could not have been any faster or smoother either. Sara got us into a great program, and we even got $8k back from the bank! She gave us updates on the progress regularly, so I think she put a lot of effort into research, communicating with the bank, and figuring out any next steps early. We are very thankful for her dedication, and will recommend her to anyone we know!

Sara was fantastic in finding us a perfect house within our budget and was excellent to work with. When a new listing came up on a house she was quick to let me know and get me to see it right away. It was a good thing too because several agents were taking their clients and I knew it was the house for my family. We put in an offer for a fair price and it was accepted the next day. I highly recommend Sara.
Thanks to Sara I was able to purchase my dream home. I had been working with Sara previously in preparation for buying a home...right before the market crashed. Sara understood that timing was VERY important to me and kept me informed of the condition of the local real estate market so that I could get back into the buyer's market when the opportunity was right for ME.
After what seemed like ages of waiting the timing was finally right this summer so Sara researched homes in my desired area and we were off & running...literally! I was able to find a home I liked within weeks and had an offer submitted and accepted one week later. I fully credit Sara's responsiveness as my agent & negotiation capabilities for getting my dream home. I can still recall standing on the curb watching other buyers viewing 'my' house wondering if there was any way possible that I would be able to get my dream home...and thanks to Sara I did!
Sara is experienced & incredibly knowledgeable in every aspect of a real estate transaction and she brings calm to the process of buying a home which can be very stressful. I would highly recommend Sara if you are looking for a realtor who is client focused and can provided the highest level of service in today's competitive market.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Escondido, CA.
We had a great experience with Sara, She quickly keyed in on what type of house we wanted and guided us through the process in a patient and friendly manner. You will not find a more hard working agent! She went out of her way to ensure we were always in the loop and made the overall experience fun.. I highly recommend Sara!!
We had a complicated and stressful situation. We owed more than our house was worth and we had fallen behind in our mortgage payments. In trying to catch up we got into greater debt with credit cards. We didn't want to foreclose and we spent over a year attempting to work things out with our mortgage company representatives unsuccessfully. We felt very frustrated and discouraged. We decided we wanted to short-sell our home but no longer had faith in our mortgage company to guide us responsibly. Sara was there for us every step of the process, alleviating so much of the stress with her knowledge, experience, diligence, compassion, honesty and patience.
She worked so hard for us and we are so grateful. Whenever we need a realty agent in the future, we will want Sara !
Sara was fantastic. She was able to get an offer on my home in just a few days. She was able to make sure that the offer was legitimate and that the buyer was qualified and serious about the transaction. She kept me informed of developments and timing of the sale and put me at ease during the entire process. I will definitely contact her again regardless if I am looking to sell another property or purchase my next one.
This was not a quick, or easy sale by any means and dealing with the banks can be a nightmare. Working with Sara made this a rather smooth process, considering the circumstances with the sale. She was always ready for whatever curveball the prospective buyers and banks threw her way. For various reasons, the sale took longer then I had hoped but, that was not her fault as buyers walked and banks balked at offers. She stuck with it and it was a pleasure using her as my listing agent.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Oceanside, CA.
Sara is a true professional. She listed our home and even in this market we had an offer in two weeks. Because we were selling our home as a short-sale, we expected to be dealing with this transaction for 6 months or more. But because of Sara's expertise it was over in half the time with no glitches! It was smooth as pie.
When you need to sell your home and especially if it's a short-sale, you need an expert, call Sara. You'll be sorry if you don't.
