Sara Kept Us Informed with Daily Emails
We are not first-timers to the real estate rodeo, having bought and sold properties in four states over the years. Recently, when it came time to select a realtor to sell my in-laws’ home, we browsed Zillow reviews and selected Sara and Daryl because they appeared knowledgeable about the Rancho Bernardo area and had very complimentary reviews.
We consulted with Sara and Daryl about 6 months before we listed the home, asking for their suggestions about the type and amount of renovations required to sell a 50+ year old house that needed some improvements. They were refreshingly honest about what we needed to do to bring the house up to a saleable condition and even provided the names of contractors and vendors to do the work. In our experience with real estate brokers, this was a unique value-add. We ended up using all their suggestions and were very pleased with the economical and professional work that improved the house.
When the house was ready for sale, Sara and Daryl were again very prepared with their market research and knowledge of the myriad details involved in selling a home. One of their greatest strengths was their use of technology to speed the process of document review and signatures.
As soon as we listed the house, we moved out of state. Sara and Daryl were extremely helpful when “things” came up and went above and beyond to make sure the gardens were watered and the backyard spiffed up while the house was being shown.
When the first reasonable offer came in, Sara proposed a smart counter offer that enhanced the deal for us. We were impressed with her negotiation skills. During the escrow process, Sara kept us informed with daily emails and updates.
In addition, Sara has created a very helpful document that explains in detail the “mystery” of escrow. I would have loved it if our previous house sales and purchases had included this level of information. This is a real value-add for her clients and sets her above realtors we’ve used in the past.
We highly recommend the team of Sara and Daryl to anyone interested in an honest and productive real estate experience.
