    Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took my needs into account, knew exactly where my price range stood, and put in tremendous effort to help not only find my home, but also make sure I was on the right side of the deal. She went to bat for me on little things I didn't even think of. If you are looking for a consummate professional with a tireless work-ethic and looking to develop a relationship for life, Sarah is hands-down your best option! I will be working with her for as long as she'll have me!

    Sarah has been great to work with. Her attention to detail is fantastic. Sarah took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for in a home. She was able to absorb all of the information to find the right homes for us to view and not wast our time looking at homes that did not match our wants and needs. Sarah made the process of purchasing the right home extremely easy and we would recommend working with her.

    Sarah is fantastic! She is professional, personable, listened to exactly what I was looking for in a house and talked me off the ledge a few times. 😉 She knows her stuff and I truly appreciate her expertise. This was my first time buying a house and she definitely made the process fun and easier than I had anticipated! Thank you, Sarah!

    I met Sarah in 2000, I was looking for my first house to buy. The mortgage financing company I was working with suggested I give her a try. We hit it off immediately. Sarah was so informative and encouraging at our first meeting that I decided to see what she had to offer in terms of looking for the perfect home. Sarah spent a lot of time compiling possible properties, providing me with helpful hints and I could see she spent time and effort to find the properties I may be interested in. We started by visiting some of the properties she had found. There was a moment when I felt I was too picky or taking up too much of her time but she assured me differently. She stuck with me and we looked at many homes because I truly didn't really know what I was looking for. Then the day came when we visited what is now my home. The whole process is daunting at best but with Sarah's help and experience it really went smoothly. Sarah is caring, kind, and knows her stuff!! Now, 19 years later, I have asked her to help me again. After the wonderful experience I had working with Sarah originally, I cannot even consider working with someone else. I called her after all these years and she remembered me! That was important to me and I will be working with Sarah again soon!! She is the best, works hard, is honest and hopeful, and an all around wonderful person!!

    Sarah is very professional, kind and full of knowledge. Our first time experience purchasing a home wouldn't have been the same without her!
    David and Angie gave Sarah 5 stars out of 5
    Sarah was extremely professional to work with. She never made us feel like she just wanted us to buy a house. She was patient with us to make sure we found the perfect fit for our family. You could tell she wasn't just helping us alfor a check, she truly enjoys what she does.
    Deb gave Sarah 5 stars out of 5
    Sarah helped us with buying our first house. She is very knowledgeable in the real estate industry and listened to our wants and needs. Sarah was always available when we wanted to view a house. While there she listened very closely to what we liked and disliked. She applied that to future viewings and eventually we found what we wanted. Sarah helped us ready our house for selling also. She gave us pointers on what to do to make it more appealing to buyers. We appreciated her so much that we are going to have her help us with our next house. I believe her attention to detail is unmatched!

    Sarah was a pleasure to work with. She was always available for questions and took the confusion out of a complex buying process, making it easy to understand.

    What's included in a mortgage payment?

    If you're buying your first home, it might seem like going from paying rent to paying a mortgage is merely switching out one monthly bill for another.But rents and mortgages differ on a couple of levels. For one, mortgage payments contribute to your stake in the home. The more payments you make, the more of the home you legally own.The other major difference is what a mortgage includes. While rent is simply a once-a-month fee, a mortgage payment comprises what is known as PITI.That acronym stand...

    Pre-Approvals, Mortgages, and Loan Officers

    The two most common ways to purchase real estate are with cash or a mortgage.
