Sara Lee was a great partner for us as we looked to up-size for a growing family. We wanted to sell our current home and buy a newer one in the same neighborhood in a very active market. We were concerned about the balancing act of finding the right new home without being stuck with 2 mortgage payments for too long. Sara Lee was great at finding homes that met our needs as soon as they became available (sometimes sooner) and suggesting creative ways to structure offers so that we could stay in a prime negotiating position. We missed on the first 2 homes we made offers on (nature of the market), but we applied these learnings to our 3rd offer and actually ended up with a better home! Sara Lee then moved into quick listing mode with our old home. Her knowledge of the market, pricing, marketing plan and staging led to a sale in under 10 days on the market during the Thanksgiving holiday at list price. The biggest advantages Sara Lee brings to clients are her in-depth knowledge of the in-town market, neighborhoods and her wealth of great contacts (from contractors and inspectors to home stagers). It all felt like first-class service. We’ve recommended her to long-time friends as well.
