Testimonials

“Sarah Saypack is a true pro in the real estate space. She is someone that is immediately on your side, then proves it at every turn in the process of buying or selling a home. We had an opportunity to get into a new home that we loved. Sarah represented us in selling our old home, and buying our new home. She was fantastic! There is a lot of noise in the RE space, and many people that treat people like transactions. Sarah is everything that the real estate profession should be: honest, fair, compassionate, yet tough when she needs to be, friendly, a straight shooter, does business the right way. It should be noted that she is excellent on follow-up, not afraid to admit when she doesn’t know something, then will get on it right away to research and find the answer. She approaches things in a team-oriented manner, has strong knowledge of the market, is both aspirational and realistic, and truly cares about what is best for her clients.”

“Buying a new home is both a fun and stressful process. Sarah was amazing at facilitating us successfully through a journey that enhanced the positives and masterfully mediated the negatives. We are now in our dream/forever home – we wouldn’t be here without Sarah’s skills and partnership – here are some of the highlights of our experience:

• GETTING THE HOUSE – The relationship Sarah’s proactively established with the seller’s agent, guidance she provided us on how to engage with the seller and custom touches like our buyer’s letter, are what made us stand out and come out on top among a pool of 20 offers (on the first house we bid on!)

• CLOSING ON THE HOUSE – the seller posed us a very unique swath of challenges, including the sudden need to rapidly close in order to secure the home. Sarah moved mountains for us to make it all happen and ensured we were taken care of and super comfortable with every development throughout

• THE ONGOING RELATIONSHIP – Sarah provided us with a range of contacts on our request from lenders to designers to to photographers/stagers for our previous home to plumbers/roofers, etc. all of which were stellar and made such a positive difference in our pre-and-post buying process

Home buying will always have its stressors and challenges – the market is SO competitive. If you want to have the best chance at securing, closing on and optimizing your ideal property (and enjoy the process!) Sarah is the one to partner with.”

“We both sold and bought our homes with Sarah. She was absolutely amazing in all aspects of the process. She helped us get our old house ready to show, with great suggestions and referrals to get it looking show-ready. And, we were so happy with the results and how smooth the selling process went, getting us an amazing price which we know we couldn’t have gotten without her. And, she worked tiredlessly helping us find a new house, very difficult to do in this market. Upon buying it, again she made the whole transaction run seamlessly and her work definitely did not stop at just the purchase, again giving us great advice and referrals. Her professionalism and friendliness set her apart from all other agents, I would highly, highly recommend using her to sell/buy your next home!”

“Sarah was exceptional. I would say take my word for it, but see for yourself. From the start Sarah explained what needed to be done and how to get it done. She was so professional yet felt like she was an longtime family friend. By following her direction and trusting the people she brought in, we were able to get top dollar for our home. Not just the best price, but the best buyers as we wanted our home of 8 years to go to the right family. She also found us an amazing new place to call home. The care and professionalism Sarah displayed really showed her character. Thank you Sarah and our family is forever grateful.”

“Sarah was recommended by friends of ours and she certainly did not disappoint. As first time home buyers in the South Bay, with no real knowledge of this market (besides how expensive it is!), we were understandably nervous, overwhelmed and felt we were in completely over our heads. Sarah put our minds at ease and held our hand(s) every step of the way. She literally went above and beyond by explaining in detail every little thing we had to do and was always available to answer my millions of questions. She never made us feel inexperienced (especially when I wanted to go in LOW for our first offer) and I always felt she had our best interest at heart. I think what really stands out about Sarah is that she is so warm and compassionate – she genuinely cares. I definitely saw that when we first met and it was confirmed during and after the process. Her follow-up is incredible. Even after Escrow closed, she still checked in on us. She even helped us define the “style” we were trying to go for in our new home and helped me pick out some pieces (she has a great eye) and helped me with some interior designers (as well as cleaners, contractors, painters – everything!) We thought we had some mold issues, called Sarah on a Sunday a month after we closed and she had her mold guy out on Monday at no charge (thank goodness there was no mold). A pro through and through. Thank you, Sarah for making our dream home a reality!”

“My husband and I found Sarah at an open house we dropped by at to browse. At first we were not seriously looking into purchasing a house, but Sarah kept us up to date with what was in the market that met our criteria. When we were finally ready to find our first home, Sarah was patient with our very narrow requirements and was very flexible around our busy schedule. In a seller’s market it is important to have a Realtor who knows the area and has access to “off market” properties. Sarah was able to get us into things that were unlisted and kept us abreast of things that were about to come on the market. Sarah is professional, knowledgeable, a good negotiator, and has great follow-up. We liked her so much we referred her to my parents who were looking to make the move out to California. They are now in escrow and we are looking forward to having family close by.”

“Sarah was vital in helping us close on a new property in the South Bay. When we first met her we were so impressed with her knowledge and history in working the South Bay area. Always available with answers to any questions we had, went above and beyond at every stage of the search and escrow, felt completely at ease and in the right hands with her. Would happily work with Sarah again and of course, recommend her to anybody buying/selling in the area.”

“To start, she answered my introductory email to her within 6 minutes of when I sent it. Her subsequent reponsiveness to emails/text/phone calls was just as impressive. She knew the market, knew how to stage the home for sale, and walked us through the negotiations and other details. I can’t think of anything that she could have done to be more helpful (well, I guess she could have cooked us breakfast every morning).”

“Sarah helped my wife and me with our South Bay home search. She was always accessible, easy to communicate with by phone, text, or e-mail at any time. She provided a lot of great advice on buying in the current market, as well as about specific homes we were interested in. She was also incredibly helpful with assisting us in negotiations, and guiding us through the loan/closing process. We are thrilled to have worked with her, and found an awesome new Redondo Beach home!”

“In today’s digitalized world, most people select their products and/or services by online reviews. So do we however this recent house buying experience was not the same. Instead of going for the highest and best review agent, we met Sarah at a random South Bay open house event. Her attentiveness for showing and attention to detail had impressed me and we decided to give her a try for being our buying agent. Looking back, we were glad we made that decision. She was always very responsive, pays close attention to detail, and has good network in South Bay. To be honest, nowadays, online resources have massive data for home buyers to search for. You probably know the housing availability as fast as your agents’s MLS. 10-15 years ago, buyers relied on agent to find a home matching your needs (# bd, #ba, townhouse, house…etc.) However, I think that’s given nowadays with all these widely available information on the web or apps. I feel the value of today’s agent is the ability to find you insight of upcoming listings, the persistence/skill for negotiating/closing the deal, and prompt responsiveness to your questions. From our experience, I like to share that Sarah has all three strengths and those have led to closing the deal of our dream home. Thank you for being there for us and keep up the good work!”
