Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Bethel Park, PA.
Sara is wonderful! It's refreshing to deal with an agent who puts the buyer's agenda ahead of her own. We moved to the Pittsburgh area from out of state, and we were basically clueless about the local market. Sara patiently helped us find our favorite neighborhood and the perfect house. To top it all off, she helped us buy at a lower price than we expected. Kudos, Sara!

My wife and I have worked with a few agents before, but Sara was by far the best! She was able to suggest neighborhoods and school districts based on our kids needs and our own preferences. She found the best houses for us and was on top of new listings, getting us in fast so we would not miss out. She was able to point out flaws we missed and features we never considered. Once she helped us find the perfect house, She negotiated a price lower than we expected and helped us close faster than we hoped for! All in all, she was the best real estate agent we ever worked with. I would recommend her to anybody!

Moving from another city to a completely unknown city is never fun. In spite of that potential terror, Sara Leitera made house hunting in Pittsburgh a truly wonderful experience! She clearly sets herself apart in the world of real estate. We tend to be very easily irritated with real estate agents in general. Sara, however, while being completely professional and highly competent, understood what kind of properties we wanted to see and showed them to us without any badgering real estate banal banter (what a RELIEF!!). Sara answered all questions with clarity and honesty, while always maintaining her pleasant communication style. We could tell that Sara TRULY cared about our success in finding a new home! A++! Many thanks for your hard work and for being so great to work with, Sara!

As first time homebuyers we needed more than the usual amount of assistance with the process, and Sara delivered. Our first meeting with her was in the office to go over the details of purchasing a home. When we found the home we wanted, Sara was able to coach us through crafting an offer stronger than our competition's - following her advice was ultimately what landed us the house. She was able to answer any questions that we had, and returned calls and emails well after business hours had ended (including a few questions that came up after closing). She was never pushy, and clearly had our best interest in mind. Sara is exactly what we needed in a real estate agent - honest, personable, knowledgable, and dedicated to her clients. If we ever are in the position to sell/buy another property, there's no question that we'd work with her again. Highly recommended.
Sara is a wonderful agent, very easy to work with and made the sometimes difficult task of buying a house, very simple. As a first time home buyer, her extensive knowledge around the entire process of buying a home really helped me understand every aspect of the transaction from home inspections to loan approvals.
Sara helped me look for home for almost a year and in the end, we found the perfect house for me. She was very attentive and responsive to my emails and calls. She was always willing to show me properties anytime during the week and made an effort for us to see them as soon as possible. In addition, after becoming to know me, she knew what Pittsburgh neighborhoods to recommend and what types of properties.
In addition, Sara is very computer savvy. I put offers on multiple houses throughout the year and we were able to do almost the entire process electronically and without having to meet in an office. Sara of course offered for us to meet, but due to my busy schedule, it was easier for me to sign. scan and send documents. I really like that she was able to do this and know that some agents do not have capabilities to do so.
I must also mention how kind, understanding and personable Sara is. I had quite a unique situation because I was separating from my husband while looking for and buying my home. Sara was easy to talk to and understanding of my situation.
Overall, she is a very talented, knowledgeable and caring individual. She is also a great negotiator and professional. I would definitely recommend Sara.

Sara was great to work with. She was always promptly responsive to us, but never pushy. She patiently helped us through the process of buying our first home. We have and will continue to recommend her to friends!
