Helped me buy home
As a first time home buyer, I was nervous and inexperienced with the home buying process. Sara did a great job at not only making sure the process went very smooth, but made sure we understood and felt comfortable with each step of the way We created a great working relationship that has continued even after we moved into our home that we absolutely love. I would highly recommend Sara Puckett, especially for first time home buyers!

We told Sara what we was looking for and the listings she sent to us were right on point. The first day we went and looked at houses we found our home! She helped us out so much with everything (and we needed it since this was our first house). A couple weeks after walking in and finding our dream home we were closing and getting the keys! I've heard people say how hard it is to find a house and how hard it is to get a house that they want, but for us it wasn't bad at all!

Helped me find a home to rent
I worked with Sarah when looking to rent a house in the area. She was very knowledgeable and prompt with replies. Unfortunately, on my end, I had to relocate to North Carolina before I was able to rent a place. She was very understanding and even went above and beyond to contact a realtor ahead of time for me to help with my hunt down there. This was very helpful since I had call a few realtors and no one would return my calls. She is extremely professional and willing to help you no matter what. I would definitely recommend Sarah to anyone when looking for a house. She is one of the best in the business. Less ... More

Working with Sara Puckett was an excellent experience. Sara was professional, honest, and concerned about finding the best house possible for us. Sara's knowledge of the area and property are top notch. Sara would be our first call if we ever decide to sell or buy another house.

To sum up Sara in one word: ?Fabulous.? I believe Sara has the wisdom and expertise of an agent 30 years her senior. Her customized websites are great. It allowed me to sort through what I did/did not like about particular houses and that helped her to lead me to a wonderful home. As we viewed the houses I selected on the website, Sara was really good at helping me see past the minor issues and see the greater possibilities in each house. But, more importantly, she helped me to see things that could potentially mean big problems. This really helped me to see each house clearly. As we worked, Sara was so helpful answering all kinds of questions no matter how silly she may have found them. The home inspection on the first house I made an offer on turned out to be a Greek Tragedy (lots of hidden horrors!). She worked patiently with me as we went up against an agent and seller that were unwilling to make any compromises. Ultimately, she supported my decision to walk away. Sara immediately got me back out there and she found me several wonderful places. After I made the decision to make an offer on one particular house, she told me that as soon as we walked in, she knew it was my home. She was so right!! Sara also has a wealth of knowledge in other areas. She was able to give me helpful suggestions when it came to finding people to do work on my property and she continues to help me with ideas for home-improvements. I am a single-mom and doing this on my own. She has been so supportive, accommodating and encouraging. In short, I could not have asked for a better agent. To all house hunters, Sara is the best and you would be hard-pressed to find ANYONE that would work harder for you. Sara, THANK YOU so much for finding me and my little girl the home we have been waiting for for so long. I cannot put into words how much your support has meant to me. Thank you! Less ... More

Sara was great to work with. It was the easiest home buying experience I ever had. She's knowledgeable, friendly & doesn't pull any punches. The online services she uses allow most of the traditional formalities to take place at the comfort of your own computer/smartphone without having to do multiple trips into the agents office which saves a buyer time & resources. Sara's efforts don't just stop after papers are signed either. She gunuinely cares about her clients & it shows. Sara is the real deal & she lives up to her slogan "always your realtor always your friend!!". A++ Jon B Less ... More

Sara pulled an offer on my house out of quicksand. Buyer was backing out and Sara was able to get buyer back. We owe her alot, she did everything for us and we did sell out house without a hitch. I depended on her so much, and Sara was there for me all the way. Debbie Byerly

Sara truly guided us in the right direction. She knew exactly what we were looking for, location, price and knowledge about homes. Without her we would more than likely still be living in a 2 bedroom apartment instead of enjoying the peace and quiet of our very own home right now. Thank you Sara for a wonderful job and being able to make us become homeowners.

I had contacted Sara after reading her reviews on Zillow. My husband had just accepted a promotion within his company which involved our family relocating to the PGH area. Never having been to PGH, I had no idea where to start. Sara replied to my email immediately and was able to suggest areas to look at and began sending me listings. She was very helpful at giving me info on the various areas around PGH and after learning my wants/needs for a home, we narrowed down our search locations. Ultimately, we found the perfect area, perfect neighborhood, and perfect house! Sara, certainly helped put my mind at ease during this stressful time of relocating my family, and moving to an unknown area. She became not only my realtor, but a friend! Less ... More

As a first time buyer I was extremely apprehensive and clueless about the whole home buying process and Sara made it seem so simple. She was very patient with us and provided encouragement even after viewing what seemed like a hundred properties. I would recommend her to any and everyone since I had such a great experience.

Sara was absolutely amazing! She is great at what she does and has such a wonderful personality. Working with her is like working with a close friend you've known for years! We are so grateful for her knowledge and the time that she spent with us. She made the whole home buying process go so smoothly with her negotiation skills and quick and clear communication with us. Thanks to Sara, we are now living in our dream home and buying a home was one of our best memories as husband and wife! She is the only realtor we would ever recommend to our friends and family!

As first time homebuyers, Mike and I had no clue what we were doing, or where to even begin! We accidently came upon Sara while reading real estate agent reviews, and couldn't be more thankful that we did! Mike and I had a very specific area in which we wanted to purchase our first home, and certain criteria that our first home must have. When we first met with Sara she immediately had us fill out a form that asked us what our "must haves" are, and then within a few hours of our first initial meeting she had sent us a link to a website where she had posted several listings for us that met all of our criteria in our desired price range and location! One house in particular really stuck out to Mike and I, and within a day or two Sara met us at the home and we did a walk thru. We both fell in love with the home immediately, and knew that it was the house that we were meant to make our home. The journey to buying our first house was not an easy one at all. Very difficult sellers and an equally as difficult selling agent presented us with several issues along the way. However, Sara was incredibly persistent, professional at all times, honest with us each step along the way, and kept in constant communication with us (but not in an annoying way like may agents often times do!!) She negotiated the price of the home until it was at a number that we were comfortable paying, she negotiated the work that we wanted done on the home, and in the end we ended up with our dream home!! Sara also really impressed us with her connections. She was able to recommend an amazing mortgage company, insurance company, and inspector. Everything that we needed in order to purchase our first house Sara was able to provide for us. Aside from Sara's real estate skills, she is also just a great person, who we could tell from our first meeting with her really loves her job and is really invested in her clients. She would tell us if she thought a house had issues (she was honest and was trying to find us the perfect house...not just make a sale), and she really truly did care about our well being in the home buying process. I would recommend Sara to anybody and everybody who is in the process of buying a home. Whether it is your first home, or your tenth home, she will work with you and find you what you want. Not to mention that she is an incredibly fun person to be around...not stuffy and uptight like many agents. It'll help make the home buying process that much more enjoyable!! Less ... More

Sara showed us several homes when we were looking to move from Erie to Pittsburgh. She accommodated our schedules which was so helpful when having to travel from another location. Sara is very easy to work with, knowledgable on so many levels within the home buying process and extremely prompt in returning calls and getting home visits scheduled. Honesty, Integrity and her overall genuine personality will make you feel assured you have an agent that is working for you and keeping your best interests at hand. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home and actually I already referred her to my daughter and son-in-law and I can assure they will also recommend her very highly.

Sara was very friendly and very accomodating to my schedule. The seller needed to close before 2013 and Sara made countless phone calls to the bank, to us the buyers and to the sellers to make that happen. We closed on the house at 2pm December 31 2012. It basically wouldn't have happened if she wouldn't have been on top of everything and we really appreciated having her working on our side. We would highly recommend her to anyone!

When I started my search, I was not the brightest crayon in the box : ) in fact Sara and my Fiance was the only two who know what they were talking about. But Sara was very kind and determined to inform me of every single detail. In the begining I had a different realtor who was very "shady" and was just there for the money, with Sara it seemed like she was a part of the family. Sara was very patient with us, and I thank you for that Sara. We were shown 10 different houses until we found the one : ) now I could not imagine to live anywhere else, it's the perfect size, have wonderful neighbors, and it feels like home. Sara is not just a realtor, she is someone who want's to leave an imprint in your life, whether it being your first, second, or third home, she will make sure your happy with your choice. She is very resourceful, and knows what she is doing, Sara is a very dedicated and commited realtor. I could write on and on about Sara but it would not do her justice, you will have to see for yourself : ) Thanks Again Sara ! We are very thankful to have had the pleasure of working with you and the friendship it has created! Less ... More

Sara helped me when no one else would. I had a rocky past with credit and Sara helped me find the people that can get me out of this mess. I needed a home and she found me the perfect situation and I couldnt be happier. She is very respectful and understanding of, it seems, any situation. Her non judgmental approach will make you feel like you've known her forever. I have been given a gift of a second chance and thats all thanks to Sara. I HIGHLY recommend Sara for anyone that needs help finding the perfect home. Less ... More

Sara was extremely helpful in helping my disabled brother with his home purchase despite a very difficult day long closing process. Just when things appeared to fall apart, Sara demonstrated her skills in a confident and compassionate manner to the satisfaction of both buyer and seller. She is an honest, fair and focused broker who did not hesitate to follow up to resolve lingering questions weeks after the closing. I would recommend her without qualification.

Sara is an excellent addition to your team when searching for a home or investment. I called Sara out of the blue due to a disagreement between an agent from another organization who wanted me to agree to a one year contract. Sara clarified that she would not require that agreement and said that her agency gave her the option to require or waive the broker fee. Sara travelled great lengths to show me properties where I was interested and suggested other areas that had been beneficial to other investors she knows. She helped envision how improvements may be made to change a single family home into a two-unit property, to remodel for a better fit and she pointed out potential problems I otherwise may have missed. She had no problem presenting an offer that I wanted to present (as opposed to some who discourage suggestions of creative financing and/or lower-than-expected offers). She recognizes strengths and weaknesses in a deal. She has suggestions for others, in the industry, to assist with other avenues such as remodeling, insurance, etc. Although I put her to the test, she never showed frustration or irritation. She's a wonderful lady, and now, a personal friend. Less ... More

The main reason why we chose Sara as our real estate agent was because of her down-to-earth and non-pushy attitude. Where other agents tried to push us into paying for extra services and fees, Sara was the only one who didn't give us the hard sell. Although she gave us recommendations, we never once felt pressured into using ?her? home inspector or mortgage broker. She respected our decisions and it was much appreciated. Another reason we chose Sara is because of her extensive knowledge of Brookline. Not only does she know the local businesses and resources in this neighborhood very well, but she has used these amenities herself and could therefore give us an insider's opinion. Her knowledge of the neighborhood housing stock and all of its quirks was also invaluable. I don't think we could have found an agent more knowledgeable about Brookline than she. Finally, when our bank gave us problems during the mortgage process, she really fought hard for us to get those issues resolved. She stayed on the bank's case, kept the seller's agent placated, and did everything she could to help us get to closing. We were glad to have a fighter like her during this very stressful ordeal. Overall, we are satisfied with Sara's services and would gladly choose her again. Less ... More

We were very pleased with Sara as first time home buyers. It only took viewing a few houses to find the one that was perfect for us. What really matters though is that she was able to get our offer accepted over several others! She was very knowledgable about the steps to bring us to closing and was able to help put our minds at ease as the paperwork was being processed through the bank. Thanks Sara!

Sara was a wonderful agent to work with. This is not my first home purchase. It seems like now a days the agents are more out to make a buck then to help the buyer/seller get what they want and need, not with Sara. If anyone is looking to sell or purchase a home I would highly recommend Sara she was not only a pleasure to work with but she is someone I would now call a friend. Clint

We had so much fun with Sara. When the process got frustrating, Sara was able to take care of the things so that we would have less worries. Sara is very patient & will stick with her clients until they are satisfied. She, of course, noticed things in the homes that we weren't aware of. So, we felt safe with her. We would definitely refer Sara & contact her when we are ready to puchase again.

We met the other day to view homes. In meeting her she was very much down-to-earth and "real". She definately knows what she is talking about and is a great resource to help find that perfect home to fit your wants and needs.

Sara was an amazing realtor to work with. My fiancée and I started looking for a home in September 2011 and it took several months to finally find one that fit our needs, but we got one! Throughout the entire process she was there for us providing sound "no-nonsense" advise and travelling to areas that were further away than her typical clients. On several occasions she would point out possible issues with a property we'd look at and personally that speaks volumes towards her ethics and purpose for working with us (i.e.- not JUST to gain the commission). On top of that, Sara was able to balance making house hunting fun and enjoyable without compromising on her, and Keller Williams', professionalism. At the end, when we did find a house, she was more than willing to help us out in terms of home inspector and insurance agent references as well as helping us throughout the mortgage process in whatever way (literally) she was able to. I highly recommend Sara and would gladly work with her again on our next home venture. Eric Less ... More
