The characteristic I appreciated most in working with Sarah was her honest, direct nature. I've had too many experiences with slick, smooth-talking realtors that are just trying to rent me an apartment as quickly as possible, not caring about my personal preferences or concerns. Working with Sarah was refreshing as she listened to what both my boyfriend and I were looking for in a place, and candidly communicated with us to weigh the pros and cons of our different housing options. My boyfriend and I were looking to move in together for the first time after living in our own apartments for years, and the transition was daunting. Sarah skillfully balanced both of our preferences and non-negotiables to help us find a place that we could both agree on. When we finally found a place we were willing to put an offer on, Sarah helped us to find a price that we felt comfortable with presenting to the owner. Sarah did a fantastic job negotiating the price of our place to our exact initial offer. Sarah did her research, providing comps to the owner to help negotiate the price down, and she also was able to negotiate our preferred move-in date. Her responsiveness with email and phone is virtually immediate. I would highly recommend Sarah, and I look forward to working with her again when we look to buy in a year or so.
