    First Time Home Buyers Review We had the pleasure of having Sara as our realtor while buying our first home. As first time home buyers, we knew we would have questions but that was just the beginning. We had questions, multiple changes in our timeline and more, all in a market that was incredibly fast moving and competitive! At times, all of the factors seemed overwhelming. We would email Sara questions about how to move forward, what the best move was in situations, and so many general advice questions; whatever the topic, she replied with such haste and detail (even if we said it was not a question we needed answered right away). Another factor that we didn't expect was our preferences/wish list in a home changing once we started looking at them. I would have been so nervous to tell her, but Sara picked up on it and adjusted her suggestions without hesitation. We will recommend Sara to anyone and are so grateful to her. 💜 Verified by RateMyAgent 03/19/2021 by Kate and Gabe

    Excellent Realtor We are so happy we chose Sara to be our Realtor. When we first contemplated selling our home, we contacted Sara. During our first meeting, she explained the process to us and provided us with comps and a market report, knowing we were not going to be selling for quite a while. Over the next year, Sara checked in with us a few times. When we were finally ready to list our home, she patiently walked us through the paperwork and, using her knowledge of the current market, helped us choose a fair asking price. Sara aggressively marketed our home, showing it many times. After just a few weeks, we accepted a great offer on our home. She made the closing process easy for us through frequent communication and complete explanations. Sara's knowledge of the market, negotiating skills, positive attitude, hard work, and delightful personality all worked together to make selling our home a pleasant experience. We recommend Sara! She'll go the extra mile for you. Verified by RateMyAgent 10/28/2018 by Susanne and Dan Bywater
    I am lucky that Sara Prendergast is my realtor I live out of town. I told Sara what I wanted in a property and she advised me which areas I should search. When I selected a residence, she contacted various vendors to evaluate the property. When I made my offer, she advised me how much to deduct for necessary upgrades. When I had trouble obtaining insurance, she contacted several brokers and I obtained the insurance in a day. Upon closing, she gave me a list of utilities to contact along with phone numbers. She is helpful without being pushy. I feel lucky that Sara Prendergast is my realtor. Verified by RateMyAgent 10/22/2018 by Mary Hink

    Sara was super helpful through the whole process. She took us to many places and made sure we found the right place for us. She explained everything very clearly which was important for us since we were first time home buyers. She has great knowledge of the local area and the companies she recommended for the inspections were all very professional and courteous. We are very happy with the place she helped us find and the service she provided. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone searching for a home in Humboldt county. She even gave us an awesome housewarming basket with tons of delicious local products! THANKS AGAIN SARA! Written By: Jonathan Szecsei 04/06/2016
    Sara is a wonderful professional. She really took the time to go above and beyond for us when assisting us in purchasing a vacation home. Although the deal fell through and we didn't purchase the property, she was extremely helpful in advocating for us and advising us each step of the way. I was thoroughly impressed with Sara's timeliness, knowledge, and commitment to her clients. If she didn't have the answer to something she would track it down and get right back to us. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering buying or selling a property. Written By: Teresa Conley (2015)
    Sara was extremely attentive to our needs by keeping us updated every step of the way.

    Understanding Home Equity

    Home equity…Everybody wants it, but what exactly is it, and how do you get it?Equity represents the degree of ownership an individual or entity has in an asset after subtracting any debts against the asset. To say someone shares equity in a company means they would share in any assets remaining after all debts are accounted for.For example, if your business has sold $500,000 worth of product this year, but you have rent, operating expenses, and a business loan payment totaling $400,000 for the y...
