Sarah knows the DC market better than anyone in the business, having spent her entire life living and working in DC. She knows the real estate market, the selling process, and helps you to set your home to be viewed at its best, so that it will sell quickly. She is very responsive both to the seller's requests for information and the buyer's requests. She does a tremendous amount of market research to help you price your home or to help you figure out what to offer. Sarah has a large network of relationships that she leverages to set your home up for a successful sale and that she will leverage to help you on your new home. Sarah is the best in this business.
Over the last fifteen years, Sarah has helped me buy and sell condos twice, so I have had the pleasure of working with her four times. She has always been accessible and responsive to my questions — and there were many! I benefited enormously from her understanding of the Washington metropolitan market and the "inside baseball" process of making and receiving offers. More than anything, however, knowing that Sarah was attending to all the details has helped me relax in an otherwise stressful experience of buying and selling property. I highly recommend her!
We intended to meet with several realtors and choose one that we felt was right for us. We met Sarah first and didn't look further! Sarah guided us to services and contractors we needed to prepare the house for sale. She recommended approaches to the sale (as-is, minor renovations, and more substantial renovations) and was open and honest with the advantages and disadvantages of each. She ended up getting us a contract before listing on MLS at a price that was very fair. We couldn't have had a better experience!
Knows the MD/DC residential market...very helpful in pricing. Sarah convinced us to put our home on the market in the summer — an ideal tim. Sarah thoughtfully discusses alternatives and strategies and quickly responds to requests for help and information. We lived in North Carolina while selling our DC home, and her responsiveness and oversight on our DC townhouse was really appreciated!
Sarah Howard served as our realtor for the sale of our home in Washington DC. She proved to be excellent in all matters surrounding the sale. As our representative, she was professional and friendly, understanding and thoughtful, and most importantly, an advocate for us above all. From our initial meeting to discuss the selling process, we were confident that Sarah was the right choice for this important role. She was in constant contact at every step along the way, giving her opinion based on her vast expertise but allowing us the ability to ask questions and express concerns when relevant. Her dedication to our sale was impressive and much appreciated. As a native Washingtonian, her knowledge of the market and neighborhood proved invaluable to our transaction. Her contacts (staging, contractors, buyers' realtors) proved to be excellent as well. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone considering a realtor for the purchase or sale of a home.
Sarah is an exceptional real estate agent with several years of experience in the real estate business. She is extremely professional and dedicated and was able to find the exact property that I had in mind. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in D.C. and through her broad array of professional connections and networks was able to locate several properties that were not yet formally on the market. I would never have known about the availability of these properties through an Internet search or otherwise. I highly recommend her skill and acumen in the field.
I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah for the past year 7+ years on a number of real estate transactions. Sarah has represented me as both a buyer and a seller and in every instance she has exceeded my expectations.
Sarah's due diligence and attention to detail is second to none. She has an extensive knowledge of the local market, is exceptional when it comes to negotiating and has an expansive network of real estate related professionals (e.g., stagers, inspectors, handyman) I highly recommend working with Sarah if you're looking to successfully buy or sell a property in the DC Metropolitan area.
Sarah is a consummate professional. She is simply excellent at her job. She is friendly and courteous, yet assertive when necessary to advocate for her client and get things done. Our property sat on the market for a year before we brought Sarah on. She recommended a number of improvements but was willing to work within our budget. She used all tools available to find the right buyer and DID! Hard feat for a property that had been on the market so long. I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough.
I have used Sarah as my real estate agent on, let's see, five separate transactions in the last ten years, including both buying and selling properties in Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia. I have recommended Sarah on several occasions and would do so again without hesitation. In my experience, Sarah is professional, capable and extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market, the process for conducting transactions, and with respect to effective strategies for both a buyer and seller. My experience with Sarah has convinced me, without question, of the importance of using a good real estate agent. I would strongly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a real estate agent in the Washington, DC, area.
