I have a busy schedule with only a little free time in the evenings and Sarah worked around that, even answering questions late at night. Sarah takes responsiveness to a whole new level! After a couple months of reviewing suggestions, Sarah learned my tastes and when the right house came to market she brought it to my attention right away so I could grab it before someone else did. I am a first time home buyer and she walked me through the whole process more than once to make sure I knew what to expect. Her team was also very helpful in guiding me through the process of closing and moving into my new home.
Sarah was awesome. She is very personable and explained every step of the process in both selling our townhome and purchasing our single family home. Sarah and her team were always quick to answer any questions we had. She is very motivated to help sell homes. She had our townhome sold in 6 days!!! I highly reccommend anyone to use her as their realtor.
Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Gilberts, IL.
My wife found Sarah through researching brokers in our area, and I am so blessed to have a wife who is such a good researcher!!!!
Sarah was truly a blessing to our family. From the first day we met her, Sarah's sincerity, knowledge and expertise were evident. Every step of the way she gave us great counsel, brought in the right experts to give us the right direction on staging, legal counsel, etc, and found us a buyer quicker than we could have hoped.
The negotiation was painless, as Sarah knew what we needed, accurately communicated, and helped us get where we needed to be. And throughout the process, Sarah was always ready to take our questions, calm our concerns, and lead us to the next step.
If you're researching real estate brokers, you can stop at Sarah Leonard. I am certainly glad we did!!! Thank you Sarah.
We had to buy our fist house, and we were not sure what and where we need it, Sarah and Laura where very patient with us, so we saw over 30 properties before we decided on what we want to buy. Also after buying all the process was smooth due to good professionals in their team.
This people do what they like and like what they do, that's why they are so good at it.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Palatine, IL.
My wife and I are first time home buyers and Sarah is exactly what we needed to help us navigate the process. She was very candid about comparing our expectations and what was available when helping us decide on what type of home to buy. She is very knowledgeable, and helped us check for any issues in the homes she found for us, as though she were going to move in herself. Once we decided on a home, she helped us with negotiating when we had no idea what was fair compared to the asking price. I could not have dreamed for a better Realtor than her. She made everything easy, was very good about responding to our questions, via text, call, or email, at any time of day. Her team is also very friendly and as quick to respond as she is. She really sets the bar high.
Sarah and here team were nothing but a joy to work with - she is extremely knowledgeable, and unafraid to be an advocate for you in a world where not everyone has your best interest at heart. Sarah and her staff most certainly DO care about their clients, and they helped facilitate our recent close on a home in Bloomingdale that would have been a nightmare to deal with, if it weren't for her and her team. Despite the awful people we had to deal with on the sellers end, we were able to find, purchase and move into our new dream home within ONE MONTH. I cannot say enough about her skills, knowledge, and expertise.
Sarah is a wonderful realtor. She is no nonsense, to the point, informative and really advocates for you! I found Sarah through a search and comparison of local realtors. She has such great reviews we decided to go with her and we are so pleased we did. Her team is amazing and prompt with every detail and our house sold in a month and a half!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Arlington Heights, IL.
Sarah and her team were great to work with. We got along with Sarah very well, she was very honest with her opinion on issues in both looking at houses as well as during negotiations with the seller. She was never pushy, and really listened to us about the types of houses we were interested in. Finally, while it may not matter as much as the professionalism Sarah and her team exhibited, we really got along with Sarah personally as well, which helps a lot when you're looking at properties for a few months. We have a condo that we are keeping as a rental property, but we'd definitely look to use Sarah when we sell it some day.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Inverness, IL.
All I can say is do your research. I normally research more than necessary but I failed to do so with our first realtor and used the first one I talked to. I thought, Multiple Listing Service, anyone can look the property up and buy it. Well, there is a difference. The first realtor had the home about 6 months with very little interest and very little communication. I started to research realtors and found Sarah. The number of homes she sold and the number of listing she had told me she was different. We talked, she showed me a lot of research that her and her team did for our property and similar homes in the area. I was impressed. We switched realtors and Sarah sold our home in about 2 weeks. Her team was on top of everything during the entire process, all showings and every detail was well communicated to us. The closing went much better than I could have hoped for.
