Sarah is truly a best-in-market REALTOR. If you read only one line of this review, read that all five of her clients that I've met bought their homes for below-appraised price. As for my purchase, we had an incredibly narrow list of criteria, with must-haves about the neighborhood, size, outdoor space, and parking. The product we wanted virtually didn't exist, but Sarah was able to find something that matched our wants and needs exactly and in short order. We found a place after two months of looking (she has access to lots of properties weeks before they hit the market), and from there, Sarah quarterbacked a negotiation process that tailored our offer to our exact financial situation. We ended up buying the house for below asking and appraisal price. We had several hiccups along the road from contract to close, all of which Sarah handled with incredible calm. Even when other REALTORS might have abandoned the sale, she ensured us that everything would work out. There was no obstacle I didn't have faith that Sarah could handle. And finally, I am so thankful to have met Sarah, whom I now consider a friend. She's kind, funny, responsive, and great to work with. I wouldn't consider another REALTOR in the future.

As a first-time homebuyer in a super competitive market, we expected our house search to take months, figured we'd have to compromise on everything, that we'd end up going over budget- the usual DC home buying horror stories. But, one month after our first call with Sarah, we were ratified on a house we love and got for under asking. She is amazing at her job. While we were looking, Sarah planned multi-stop trips so we could see a bunch of places in one day- we weren't sure what we wanted so she made sure that we saw a variety of different kinds of places, in different geographic areas and different price points. She was quick to point out not just perks but the flaws of each place we looked at and we never felt rushed to make a decision. I regret not calling her sooner and I honestly can't wait to work with Sarah again someday.

Sarah exceeded our expectations in every aspect. As first-time home buyers, we were unsure of how to begin the home buying process but within literally 2 minutes of sending Sarah an online inquiry, she called us back and was walking us through our next steps. She was knowledgeable, transparent, patient, considerate, available, and invested in our success, she was the total package. She incorporated our feedback in the house search and found us the exact types of houses we were looking for, and we never felt pressured to put in an offer. The housing market is hyper-competitive right now, but Sarah was able to get creative and found us a home that wasn't even on the market yet. We love our house and can safely say that we would not have found it without choosing Sarah to be our agent.

Simply put our experience with Sarah was perfect. Sarah is a top-notch professional with a human touch, and that is exactly what you need during the stressful time of selling or buying a home. Selling our home in DC with Sarah ended up being a breeze, despite the fact that we put it on the market amid the Capitol riot, Covid-19 restrictions, and us being across the Atlantic. She navigated all these challenges with ease and grace, communicating all her steps with us along the way. We had a signed deal above the asking price just 2 days after the 1st Open House! All around it was one of the easiest and pleasant transactions in my life. If you are looking for an agent in DC/MD/VA I highly recommend you reaching out to Sarah.

We were introduced to Sarah with very high recommendations by a close friend. We found her extremely easy and pleasant to interact with, a consummate professional who is clearly very knowledgeable about the DMV area but at the same time who also invests time and effort to better understand and serve her clients’ needs. After we decided to work with her, she promptly exceeded expectations in every conceivable dimension. We could not have hoped for a smoother or more hassle-free sale of our home. It was truly a pleasure working with her, and we would recommend her very highly to prospective homebuyers and sellers alike.

Don't look any further for a real estate agent. We purchased a home in Washington DC while living in London, England relying solely on Sarah's expertise. With Sarah, you are getting an unbiased expert in real estate, investment viability, and mortgage finances. She also has an impressive network of incredibly professional contacts necessary to get you through settlement- from the mortgage bank and title company to the home insurance company and building contractors. This saves so much time and energy. The entire experience was stress-free and seamless. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to anyone.
