Knowing that trust is a t the core of a positive outcome she fosters strong bonds with her clients and colleagues and has found that humor is the best remedy for what can be an intense experience for both buyers and sellers. Sarah’s clients stay in her life for many years after the escrow closes and she likes it that way!
Sarah has a wide breadth of life experience that culminated in her chosen career in real estate. Married almost 30 years to her contractor husband she has absorbed tremendous knowledge of the construction trades while running his business. Prior to that she and her mother ran her Grandmother’s company, The Body Shop, a Bay Area landmark which operated in an eco fashion long before that was the style. Along the way she dabbled in landscape design and doula work - both areas of interest to this day. Her four children bring her tremendous joy and range in age from 26 to 14 . All of this life experience, from construction to gardening, birth work to retail business seems custom fit for assisting buyers and sellers in the massive life transition of home sales. Sarah derives deep satisfaction in being useful to others, finding that life’s meaning is derived from this one simple act.
