Team reviews

I was referred to Sarah Leonard by a co worker, and I couldn't of been more pleased and satisfied with the effort and around the clock service from everyone on the team. Sarah was on top of phone calls/texts and emails with answers and questions regarding anything. If someone wasn't able to meet me at a house, someone else was sent to work around my time and my convience. That being the case.. I met Gary, and Christie. Whom both I LOVED! Friendly, personalble and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Sarah Leonard and her team!

Sold a home in 2015 in Rollins, Grayslake, IL 60030.

I am so thankful to have found Sarah Leonard and her team. I first found her here on Zillow and I noticed how many positive reviews she had. I have had experience in the past with realtors who only want to do the bare minimum and only see you as a way to get paid. I can say that Sarah was the complete opposite! I had a townhouse to sell in a market flooded with them as well as finding a single family home for my growing family. She went through the numbers with me and we agreed on a price that I was happy with. As part of her services she had a professional stager come out and recommend a few things to us and a photographer to take beautiful pictures of my townhouse. We listed in January when originally I was thinking March, but I got my first offer in just 4 weeks! Her assistant Laura took us out to see properties that we were interested in and offered some really good advice. She helped us through the offering process and it worked to our advantage. I was always in the loop with where we were in the process and I never felt lost. I got text messages in the evening well after business hours which proves that the team goes that extra mile to satisfy clients. Look no further for the best team in the business!

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Schaumburg, IL.

Selling a property can be stressful, let along doing so from 400 miles away. When it came time to sell, my wife and I searched and read many reviews. We came upon Miss Leonard. According to her reviews, she was highly recommended. We contacted her and were instantly impressed with her professionalism, integrity, and conscientiousness. Within days, Miss Leonard and her team had a plan to sell our home despite us living so far away. If questions arose, she was prompt to answer them. Her team took care of everything from preparation of documentation, arranging for repairs, and providing referrals for legal representation. We listed our condo and had a buyer that day. Closing dates were arranged and things progressed with ease. However, the buyer suddenly walked away from our sale. Miss Leonard and her team responded to this situation promptly and calmly. They formulated a plan, put the condo back on the market, and we were fortunate to have a cash buyer within days. Typically, managing such a circumstance would be difficult. However, Miss Leonard and her team proved to be calm and reassuring. Obviously our outcomes were positive. Nevertheless, if we had to do our sale all over again, we would choose Miss Leonard and her team hands down!! We appreciate their attention, professionalism, and kindness throughout our partnership!! My wife and I strongly recommend Miss Leonard and her team!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Geneva, IL.

Sarah was recommended to us by an acquaintance. We had interviewed other realtors and even gone to look at homes with them. After 5 min of being with her, she got the job. Very honest, realistic, and very much up to date on what home buyers & sellers are looking for in their purchase. Very good understanding of value compared to location. Sarah and her team did an incredible job. Sold my home in 5 days! If you are looking for or selling a home in the suburbs of Chicago, there is no better team.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Hampshire, IL.

When I was looking to sell my home, I read these reviews and thought there was no way one person could do that much business....and then I met Sarah! She has such energy, a positive outlook on things and a great sense of what Buyers want in this market. She is young enough to be on the forefront of all the newest technology but experienced enough to offer guidance and is truly an expert in her field. She wound up selling my home to one of her own buyers only a few weeks on the market. The process went incredibly smooth. She has an entire team of staff to assist so I always received a response from them within minutes of any questions I had ~ I am pretty sure she doesn't sleep and has her phone glued to her! Her entire team made everything really easy for me and even hired a stager to come to my home to help me prepare. Overall Sarah and her team were amazing and she will be the only Realtor I use or recommend!!

Showed home in 2015.

My wife and I were referred to Sarah by a friend. We are looking for a house near my wife's parents house in St Charles. After looking at many homes with Sarah over the course of two to three weeks I received a job downtown and we ended up renting downtown. I was very impressed with Sarah's knowledge and quick response time. The plan is eventually move back to the suburbs near the St Charles area and Sarah will definitely be our first call.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Oswego, IL.
Primary point of contact: Laura Parker

I didn't get a chance to work with Sarah herself, but had the pleasure of working with one of her associates Laura Parker. She was nothing but AMAZING from start to finish. We had quite a few problems with the sellers dragging their feet, from taking 2 weeks to put in a new part to the faucet to lack of credit on the closing and everything in between and Laura handled it like a champ. She is by FAR the best realtor we have dealt with since the beginning of our journey. I wish I had met her from the beginning! Laura is not only knowledgable about the area, she earned my trust when she made me feel like I was important to her and not just a paycheck. Laura was compassionate and VERY patient with us and never forced us to find another home that was "more expensive" to benefit her commission. I did some investigating on the house we were going to purchase without Laura knowing and everything she had told us was exactly on point with what I found out for myself! I had read some of the reviews about how this team sleeps with their phones under their pillows and I have to second that! I was VERY impressed at the quick response time from the smallest questions to some very important deciding factors that went into us purchasing our new home! I want to thank Laura and Sarah for their great joint effort to helping us find our dream home! DEF check this team out! This team is AMAZING from start to finish!

Thank you, Paul & Voula

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

Sarah and her team are amazing. I am very busy and usually don't have time to read reviews, let alone write them. We hired Sarah to be both our buyer's agent and our seller's agent. Before Sarah, we thought all agents were the same. We used an agent last Fall and it's totally night and day between our last agent and Sarah. After a few weeks, its clear on why Sarah sells over 200 homes per year! I highly recommend Sarah and her team (Katie, Ashley, Christie, Kendall, and Gary) to anyone who is need of an excellent realtor.

Bought a home in 2015 in West Dundee, IL 60118.

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.
