Sara is very warm and friendly. We recently purchased a condo for my two daughters to live in while attending the University of Florida. My husband and I called Sara and told her what we were looking for. Sara and our oldest daughter (already a student at UF) went out looking at properties as we don't live in Gainesville. My daughter felt an immediate connection to Sara. As parents we felt our daughter was with a safe and caring person. Even after the sale, Sara was following up with our daughter, making sure she had the locks changed! In fact, Sara even offered to drive over and help our daughter get the locks changed before she moved in. Sara made the finding the perfect place for our daughters and the purchase was so easy.(We had a remote closing as the sellers are in Boston and we are in Central Florida.) Sara is the best!!

Sara is very sweet and open hearted. She is shows responsiveness and loyalty. When the time is right, I will definitely use Sara as my agent. She is highly recommended and her negotiation skills is very awesome. When I first met Sara, She welcomed my family and I with open arms. Any questions I had or asked, Sara responded very quickly. If she did not have the answers, she would find out for me. Sara is awesome.

I strongly recommend Sara. She is a very kind agent. She helped me to deal with the difficult seller and his agent for an as-is property in 4 months. Although I walked away from the difficult one, she still tried her best to get my deposit back. Also, she recommended other properties as soon as possible. Finally I got a property and am satisfied. Sara is not only a good agent but a best friend if you would like talk more to them. Her professional comment would help you to decide in a right way and avoid to be a bad situation. That's why I strongly recommend her. :=) Less ... More

I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience working with Sara. This being my first home purchase, EVERYTHING was foreign and new to me... from making appointments to see the 25 different places we saw to finding the right people for a mortgage, to home owners insurance to inspection to closing etc etc and EVERYTHING in between. Sara was straight-forward and honest about each and every step and I had absolute confidence in what she was telling me. What's more, the many many many hours spent looking at properties, creating spreadsheets for me with what we were seeing the next day, facilitating and standing-in for me for inspections when I was out of town, she did so knowing she was not making a big commission off my relatively small purchase. She is a true professional and I'm sure I'll be working with her again in the upcoming years. Less ... More

We bought a home, land, and barn in North Florida. Sara was very helpful in all facets. She helped with traveling and visiting different listings in multi counties. Coordinated with other realtors. Thinking out of the box, to purchase our Dream Home and 31 acres,
