She has been living in Chicago since then and is now settled in the Streeterville neighborhood. Sara is an executive member of the Common Threads board in Chicago and an active member of S.O.A.R.

Her favorite things to do are spending time with friends and family, meeting new people, and discussing her peer's goals for home ownership and investment opportunities in the city.
Clients are saying:
"I have hired Sara to list and sell 3 condominiums for 3 different clients. Each time she handled the client relationship, the photography, the listing process and the sales process with utmost enthusiasm and attention to detail. I will hire her again!"
"Sara was amazing person to work with when I was purchasing property for the first time. She know's it's a huge decision for people and without her, I don't know if I would have pulled the trigger (Best decision of my life thus far).
She made sure to focus on my needs and showed me a countless number of places. I can't imagine that she wasn't frustrated with how many times we went out but she was always smiling and ready to help my find the perfect place.
I'm so happy with my purchase and I can't thank Sara enough!"
"Sara Wilburn sold my condo for me. I had been to previous realtors with no luck. Upon meeting Sara and realizing her vast knowledge of the market, I decided on her. She got me a great quick offer in a not so easy market. She's available 24 hours a day and is a calming influence going through the home selling process. I would recommend Sara in a heartbeat."
"A friend recommended Sara, and my fiancé and I couldn't have been luckier to meet her. Sara was responsive and organized from the very beginning. She set up the MLS system so that we received daily emails with listings according to our criteria.
However, what really stands out about Sara is her patience and relationship skills. After spending an entire Saturday showing us places, my fiancé and I changed our minds about the type of apartment we wanted. Most real estate professionals would feel frustrated. Sara didn't skip a beat. Instead, she adjusted her search and never put pressure on us to settle. We waited until the perfect place came along. Sara couldn't have been more thrilled that we were thrilled.
What else could you ask from a real estate professional? We'd highly recommend Sara, and in fact, have already shared her contact info with friends. We also plan to work with Sara again when searching for our next place."
"Sara was extremely helpful and responsive and found me exactly what I wanted--an amazing building and an amazing unit, for an amazing price! She's a Chicago native and knows the ins and outs of every neighborhood. I wanted a high rise downtown and couldn't find anything initially but Sara kept me in mind and emailed me when she saw the right building for me--I locked it down the following day. You won't regret hiring Sara for all of your real estate needs!"
