Team reviews

From the start I felt confident in our decision to use Sarah as our selling realtor. We needed to sell fast because we were moving out of state. Sarah knows the market well and how to price your house. She chose a reasonable price to help us sell quick. We sold within a week! Her team is awesome and quick with responses.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Bartlett, IL.

We've heard it said that moving homes is one of the top three biggest stressors you can have in your life (listed only behind the death of a loved one and a divorce)…but whomever figured that out never worked with Sarah and her team. Here are our highlights: • We put our house on the market on a Tuesday at 1PM. We had an offer in hand, almost 2% above our asking price, by 6PM. Yes. That same day. Sight unseen. This is the offer that we eventually accepted and it went through to our final sale. So, our home literally sold in five hours. • We used Sarah for staging and prepping our home so it would sell. She and her team have so much information, experience and referrals to share. She is a resource that we soon came to trust and rely upon. We found phenomenal painters, carpet cleaners and movers through her. Even our mortgage ended up being serviced through a recommendation of hers. She does such an incredible volume of home sales that these contractors know her by name (and I believe put in a little extra effort) in order to continue to service the business that she’s able to direct to them. Forget Angie’s List…check out Sarah’s List. • We got no-nonsense and direct answers to any questions we asked. Sarah is knowledgeable and savvy. Even blunt. You have to operate in reality in realty, and Sarah kept us grounded, even when it wasn’t something we necessarily wanted to hear, but needed to. We appreciated that honesty. • We still took our time finding the right home. It was probably a nine month process from reaching out with a “maybe we want to find a place” to closing on our new home, but Sarah and her team were always supportive in our process, and always on our timeframe. We never felt rushed and we always felt like we were a priority to them. • We did find that apparently Sarah doesn’t sleep, take days off or believe in weekends. We received immediate answers to any and all questions, concerns, thoughts or ideas from her or her team via call, text and email. I have a time stamp on one response from 3AM. • Sarah and her team championed our negotiations. Sometimes they worked the back channels. Sometimes they were aggressive for us. And if something was slipping sideways, they jumped in and put it back on track. It was a pleasure to have such a strong and able advocate to help manage the things that would’ve otherwise made moving a top three stress. Truth is, we are VERY happy to be done with the buying and the selling and the moving…but we got a good offer on our previous home and we found just what we were looking for in this new one, which we’re just settling into. But…whenever we’re ready to do this all again, there’s only one team we’ll call.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Carol Stream, IL.

Sara was recommended to me by one of my neighbors. I can't say enough about how professional and informative both she and her team were. We were provided with great contractors to get our house listed. Advertising was wonderful and our house sold in 5 days because of her expertise. She helped us every step of the way. I have already recommended her to several of our neighbors. I can't say enough about her. She even helped us find a realtor in our current home state.  More Less
