North Shore or next door, I can help!

“My highest priority is ensuring each transaction goes as smoothly as possible. 

I make sure my clients leave the closing table with satisfied smiles, not wrinkles!”

Getting a house from first showing to the closing table isn’t always easy. My primary objective is to put my clients in the best hands every step of the way by working with a proactive and detail-oriented agent, the right mortgage lender for the purchase, exacting inspectors who can identify potential concerns, attorneys who not only communicate but advocate and a host of other fantastic specialists who I’ve developed personal and professional relationships with over the years. I rely on a team-based approach to make sure that the deal is seamless from start to finish-  and as stress-free as possible for everyone involved!

Prior to becoming a licensed real estate broker, I worked for a major Swedish clothing retailer as an expansion project manager, managing the complexities of building, stocking and staffing a new store, primarily in expanding markets. I also worked as a professional freelance stager, ensuring that newly-constructed condos in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood were perfectly staged to highlight their quality to bring in discerning buyers. After purchasing my own home in Evanston’s historic lake district, I realized that my experiences as a project manager coupled with my staging and design expertise would make me uniquely suited to succeed with @properties.

A home is a huge emotional and financial investment and it’s my job to make sure that it’s the right fit for my clients. While I specialize in Evanston and Chicago’s North Shore, I have lived in some of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods- Wicker Park, Gold Coast, and Andersonville, just to name a few. I take my clients all over the city and North Shore and love sharing my deep knowledge of this area with my clients to show what makes each neighborhood and suburb the best fit for their next home. 

If you or someone you know needs any advice in making their next real estate decision, please let me know.  I’m always happy to help new clients find their perfect place to call home! 


Clients are saying:

"Thank you Sarah for your professionalism, great advices and help during our house search. We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family. Thank you again."

"Sarah is amazing!! We were not always the easiest client to work with but she patiently looked through all the listings to help us find the perfect home."

"Sarah is the best! We told her what we were looking for and she found half a dozen places that fit our description perfectly within a few days. The next weekend she took us to see them, and we'd signed our lease a few days after that. Without a doubt the best apartment-hunting experience I've had."

"From the minute I spoke to Sarah she was in tune and listening to everything I said I wanted in a house. I never had to repeat myself, she understood my needs and was eager to help us from the very beginning. She was very sweet, honest, and professional. I am so glad we used her as our agent and I will be using her for all of my real estate needs going forward."

"My condo was a challenge to sell and after a year with my original realtor, I decided to make a change and went with Sarah. It was like night and day! In fact, my condo sold with the FIRST SHOWING!!! Sarah has excellent communication skills and self initiative as well as a pleasant but assertive style with anyone she interacts with. Sarah always got back to me promptly and provides thorough updates with any developments that happened. Her pricing, market analysis and real estate fundamentals are as good as I've ever seen (this was my second condo sale). Mostly, I feel that my condo sold because Sarah insists on being present for her showings and my property needed that special touch. I can't thank Sarah enough!!! You will be in good hands with Sarah and I would recommend her without hesitation!!!"
