North Shore or next door, I can help!
Whether you've decided it's time to buy or you're ready to sell, getting from your first showing to the closing table isn't always easy.
You need a real professional who takes some of the pressure off by having the right team in place. From mortgage brokers to stagers, I rely on a team-based approach to make sure that every deal is seamless from start to finish and as stress-free as possible for everyone involved. A home is a huge emotional and financial investment and it's my job to help make sure that it's the best fit for my clients.
Using proven market research and experience, I provide my clients the information to better understand how the market conditions will affect their bottom line. Each property has its own charms, features that make it intrinsically special and, by blending the objective with the subjective, I have helped many clients achieve their real estate goals in a short amount of time for the best price with the least amount of fuss.
Prior to joining @properties, I worked as a project manager for a major clothing company, managing the complexities of building, stocking, merchandising and staffing new stores in expanding markets. Having that base in project management coupled with my design expertise makes me uniquely suited to assist all of my clients in achieving their goals- managing the intricacies of the transaction and making sure that my clients are in the best hands every step of the way.
While I specialize in Evanston and Chicago's North Shore, I take my clients all over and love sharing my knowledge with my clients 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:
"I've often doubted the value of realtors in representing buyers... and then along came Sarah Coward. Not only did Sarah show me properties that weren't even listed yet, giving me first crack at them, but when we did find the exact right property, she advocated for me 110%, getting me the right home at the right price. She helped me navigate through problems that arose and was a meticulous project manager in getting all of the details to come together. Sarah is trustworthy and follows through in all of her commitments. I can't say enough about Sarah and the service she provides!"
"We could not have asked for a better guide through the process of purchasing our first home in the US. Sarah was exceedingly knowledgeable, professional and upfront. We appreciated her local knowledge and had a hugely fun time throughout what could have been an intimidating process. If anyone needs an agent who works hard and gets results, we highly recommend Sarah without reservation.."
"Sarah is the best! We had our house up for sale with another realtor for over 6 months with basically no interest at all. After signing with Sarah she had us under contract to sell in a week! She clearly knows what she's doing and told us exactly what she thought we needed to do to sell our house. Afterwards she helped us find our dream home! I appreciate all the time and effort she put in for us. She was always quick to respond to our many questions and was easy to work with. Now we're in our new home and couldn't be happier. We couldn't have done this without her!"
"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!!!"
"Sarah is a real detail-oriented professional. Her hard work paid off with multiple over-list offers and a quick close. My wife and I could not have been happier."
