We used Sarah for both buying and selling our house in a span of 2 years, so we saw both sides of the process. For both experiences, Sarah went out of her way to make sure your questions are answered and communication is immediate. Our house was listed and sold in less then 30 days on the market for $5,000 over asking price. When we bought it 2 years earlier we got a great price with help from Sarah. Would definitely recommend or hire again.

We used Sarah to purchase our house, and then later to sell it when we moved out of state. When we were home searching Sarah proved herself to be a reliable person to turn to with all of our questions. She was quick to answer or return any phone calls, even when our move out of state put us in a different time zone, making our calls to her come late at night. Sarah handled the entire selling process for us when we moved, from faxing us papers to being the middleman for the closing. She handled it smoothly, sold out home for more than we had listed it for, and made it so we had to do almost no work. We highly recommend Sarah Cain, and think you can't find a better, more friendly Realtor! Less ... More

My wife and I worked with Sarah while purchasing our home in the Summer/Fall of 2013. She truly was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive to our questions and worked aggressively to get us into properties we wanted to see. We also valued her advice while negotiating with sellers in a seller's-market. I would have no issue referring my friends and family to her.

Sarah is very good at being a realtor. She maintains contact with you and updates you throughout the process. She's accessible when you need to ask questions and willing to help you as much as possible. I will definately have her help me again. I didn't think I would ever get my house sold. But I did with Sarah's help. She also helped me find my new place to live I had very specific needs for my new place and Sarah listened to what I had to say to find the place that was just right for me. Sarah will get you house sold too!!! Less ... More

Sarah went above and beyond when it came to selling my home! She has so many outlets to advertise her homes it's no wonder my home sold in 4 days! She is incredibly personable. Her knowledge of the process helps during the stressful times of selling. That is why my wife and I decided to have her help us find our new home to purchase! Thanks for everything Sarah!

Sarah Cain was very helpful on the purchase of our home on Indian Lake three years ago when we moved to Michigan from Texas. Sarah's knowledge of Real Estate was a huge benefit to us. Then this year she helped us sell our home in less than two weeks. She did a great job.

My husband and I had a hard time settling in on where we wanted to live and what kind of house and land to purchase. Sarah identified a few key homes for us to look at to "try on" the different ways we could go. She helped us zero in on the perfect home with just a few tries! And we just purchased a home that is super! Her many years of expertise came through with her wise counsel. The contract, inspection, and closing when smoothly, and any surprises were handled with aplomb. Sarah is delightful to work with and I enthusiastically recommend her to all of my colleagues. You are in good hands with Sarah. Less ... More

We listed our home with Sarah and used her as our buyer's agent and she was extremely helpful, professional and knowledgeable. She answered calls quickly, took time to explain things to us and guided us through the entire process, all while being very patient.

Sara Cain has practically become a member of our family. She has assisted our children and their families in selling and buying their new residences as well as our recent land purchase. I'm sure she saved us some money in helping us make the proper bid on the land! She is experienced and made us feel very comfortable with this transaction. We are planning on having her help us sell our current home when we are ready to make that move.

Didn't try to sell me a home. She allowed me to choose the homes that interested me in the locations I preferred. Advised me of questionable aspects of certain homes and steered me away from potential problems. I feel that she is looking out for my best interest and at the same time letting me decide what's right for me.

Sarah is a very direct, engaging person. She walks you through the process of buying/selling a house with a no nonsense approach. She gives you useful information and feedback, but ultimately gives you space to make your own decisions. Sarah both sold our house and assisted us in choosing our new home. Throughout the sometimes long and difficult process, she helped us to remain calm and positive with her constant guidance and reassurance. Sarah was always easy to get ahold of and made us feel like we were her number one priority. Any hiccups we had along the way, Sarah had the integrity to do whatever it took to make it right. We are now enjoying our beautiful, new home and grateful for Sarah's guidance throughout the process. Less ... More

Sarah conducted the sale of our residence in a very professional manner. She was very tuned into the market value and conditions, and worked diligently to expedite the sale process. Once we had a bonafide offer, she negotiated a settlement that was fair and mutually acceptable. We highly recommend her in representing either a buyer or seller.

I loved working with Sarah! I am a first time home buyer, and my experiences with Sarah were wonderful! Everything was clear, and I didn't have any anxiety about my purchase or the buying process because of her. I immediately connected with her upon our first meeting, and she really understood the type of home I was looking for. I love my home, so I won't be moving soon, but when I do, I hope she's still in the business!

Sarah is very reactive and a real pleasure to be with. We pushed her a little out of her zone geographically in Barry and Allegan Counties. But she learned the area and was tireless with our trips all over those two counties to see properties. She is a real expert with the process and communication was very strong heading into closing on a short time table. I would recommend Sarah Cain without reservation.

Excellent experience. Sarah went above and beyond the call of duty throughout the entire process. This was an older home and Sarah was extremely helpful finding contractors to assist and address various items that needed attention. Sarah exhibits exceptional communication and follow-up skills. She also demonstrates the ability to complete the transaction with a "close" transaction in a timely manner. I highly recommend that you utilize her services.

We were referred to Sarah by friends who had had a very positive experience. We received a call back from her very quickly and she was kind enough to go over all our options concerning our property in detail, and was very patient in her explanations. She was very aggressive in making sure the property was ready for the market, and she advertised in the most effective media sites. The house was ready for the market in November and by December 1st, she had it rented. We are extremely pleased with her actions, her professionalism and her outstanding communication processes.

SO SO SO thankful to have Sarah as my realtor. She made sure I found the right house, at an amazing price, in the perfect location. Also, as a first time home buyer, buying a bank owned home, there were many, many complicated steps that she guided me through with ease-- even when the bank and selling real estate company dropped the ball-- she worked around the clock to make things right. I swear she must work seven days a week!

Sarah both sold our home and helped us find a new one in Spring 2011. Her market analysis for both the sell and the buy were spot on. Maghielse & Company are a great agency, providing Sarah plenty of quality support. Once we provided her our criteria for a new place, she stuck to that criteria and did not try to stretch us by showing us places that didn't fit our criteria. She was patient and accompanied us on many house-hunting trips. We have personally recommended Sarah to friends.

Sarah stuck with us through a long and arduous search for a home in E. Grand Rapids, MI, in August of 2008. When we were ready to settle for just about anything to get into the school district we wanted, but she was not ready to give up. Thanks to her, we bought the house we really wanted. We remain friends, and would not hesitate to recommend her, and we will assuredly contact her for any other real estate transactions.

Not only was Sarah a excellent realtor she was fun too. We had many moments together that I will remember always. She sold my house in one of the worst markets ever, then she found me the greatest house and battled for the best price for me. I know allot of people who complain about their realtors not answering the phone calls or not being available when they need them, not Sarah she answered every phone call and took me to every house I asked her to. I could not give her a higher recommendation and I cant think of one thing she could have done better for me. She rates 5 stars in my book ! Less ... More

The home staging process offered, her portal access to homes and reviews of showings for our house was great information. This is something not every realtor offers.

Sarah has been awesome to work with. We have recommended her several times (including family) and has done an outstanding job in both selling and buying of a home.She is very knowledgeable in the housing market and strives to ensure your satisfaction. She is very professional, but yet very personable and can relate to most situations and takes the time to understand what you are looking for, whether you are selling and/or buying. She helped us find our dream home, however, we were buying in the most difficult of times, as most financial institutions can be very difficult to work with due to the high rise in bankruptcies, she helped us every step of the way! She also sold our parents home before it was even listed to start showing on the market! She is awesome! I highly recommend Sarah Cain. Less ... More

Sarah listed our home and found a buyer quicker than we imagined. She then worked diligently to find us a house to move into since the Buyers wanted immediate possession. She presented us with options if we didn't find a house immediately but in the end she found and negotiated a house for us to move into within a very short time frame. Her knowledge of all areas of buying and selling a home made our experience a truly positive one.
