As a real estate agent, I guide people through two of life’s major transitions - buying and selling homes. This is a second career for me and taps into my passion for houses and my love of the metro Washington DC area. In addition to having a skill set that makes all the difference, I love what I do. I take pride in seeing my clients through both the exciting and laborious aspects of a transaction and they in turn value my enthusiasm, hard work, and commitment.
I will take the time to find you a house that is a great fit for you. If life takes an unexpected turn and the process is longer than anyone expected, don’t worry. The unknowns are why I’m by your side. I listen when you express your needs and desires, and what you want drives the process. I support you and represent you, and I fight for you. I make sure your offer hits the sweet spot – a price that will appeal to the seller and stay within your comfort zone. I know real estate and I share that knowledge to make you a more savvy buyer. I know people in related businesses and I leverage my network to add value to our relationship. I walk with you, through every step, until the deal is closed.
This is likely one of the most consequential transactions you’ll ever make, and I’ve got your back! I provide you with a realistic assessment of your home’s value, advise you on staging to show it off, and propose a tailored strategy for selling. I market for maximum exposure. I negotiate for you, net the best possible price for your home, and stay with you through inevitable hiccups that come up along the way. Selling is exciting, and can also be stressful. My goal is to make your transaction as seamless and profitable as possible.
In metro DC, it matters to not only have knowledge of the neighborhoods, but also an appreciation of how they all interconnect. I settled here over 33 years ago. I know the turf where you’ve lived, or where you’re about to live! I’ll share my take on the vibe of Northern Virginia cities, point you to the area’s foodie gems, describe secret routes around traffic bottlenecks, introduce you to DC’s hot theatre scene, and offer perspective on the best dog parks around. Want to experience something I haven’t done? I’ll use my network to get you the scoop! And if you share something special about the area, I’ll soak up the details and pass them on again!
Why hire a Realtor who has been in the business for just a few years? It’s an asset! After thirty years of Federal service, I earned the rare Distinguished Career Intelligence Medal. That honor is a testament to the problem solving, resourcefulness, and technical acumen I honed and focused on our country’s national security. Those traits are now put to use for you. My intelligence career succeeded on a foundation of integrity, reliability, and trust. It instilled in me the values and ethics I bring to the real estate business. I am tenacious. People know me as a closer, appreciate my penchant for hard work, and value my ability to win negotiations. It all translates beautifully into the world of real estate where I now put my energy and enthusiasm. If your transaction gets complicated, I will keep a level head, follow through on commitments, and guide you to the other side intact and satisfied.
From fliers to hashtags, my marketing will reach every possible audience.
I’m capable and reliable and will make sure they’re covered.
I know how that goes and will find your pup a happy home.
I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking to purchase a home in Northern Virginia. She is both knowledgeable and dedicated and she worked tirelessly to help us find our dream home in Old Alexandria. She even managed to negotiate a sale price well below asking and stood by us every step of the way, through a less than 30 day close. A true testament to her commitment to her ...
Sarah knew just the questions to ask about us, in order to find the right house in this niche area. Once we found the right one, (Sarah) handled all the paperwork and got us finished with the contracts within the day…A great experience, and an absolute 5 star recommendation!
Sarah provided extremely useful information regarding the offers and helped us through the negotiations. Her Federal Government experience in negotiating was certainly helpful and we breezed through negotiations successfully. Throughout the whole process, Sarah was friendly, responsive, and insightful.
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Fairfax, VA. With just a few weeks to find our new home, Sarah was relentless in helping us find the perfect place. After looking at what seemed like a hundred homes, we finally found "the one" and six months later, we couldn't be happier! Thank you, Sarah, for making our new home the perfect place to start our ...
Sarah was instrumental in the sale of our home in March 2018. From the outset she was determined that she would sell our home. She brought in a design team in her own to explain exactly what needed to be done to get our 34 year old home ready for sale.
That in combination with her marketing and networking brought us 45 people to the first day of open house ...
Helped me rent a home. Sarah was absolutely invaluable in our search for a townhouse. We had complicated requirements about the location, proximity to the metro, school, type of interior, pets, and price. She was able to address them masterfully, witha lot of diplomacy and tact. I appreciated how calm and collected she was at all times. She is a greater listener, which is invaluable in understanding the client’...
