"Sarah was a delight to work with from beginning to end. I was going through divorce and purchasing my first home on my own, and she was there for me every step of the way, patiently and gently guiding me through the entire process. Sarah is the best!"



"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!"



"If you want your agent to be a real ally, not just someone who juggles keys? You want Sarah. She's friendly, upbeat and easy to be around. Sarah stayed patient with us over many months, helping us navigate the Chicago market and the choppy waters of first-time home ownership. I think Sarah genuinely wants her clients to have a great experience; she works hard to make that happen. Every resource she recommended (from home inspection to lawyer) turned out to be top-notch. Every time we asked for help, she flew into action. Every time things took an unexpected turn, she offered options, good advice and just the right amount of sympathy.

We wound up someplace amazing. And I doubt we would have ever found it without Sarah."

"Sarah made every step of selling our home and buying the next incredibly easy. She ensured we had great photos and marketed our property to ensure we received multiple offers. Sarah was always available to answer any questions and accommodated our schedules.
Buying a selling a home can be stressful, but with Sarah we actually had fun."



"She has good knowledge of the market, active agent with high energy, lovely to work with with a good sense of humor. Found a good tenant very quickly and made sure that I understood the process with the building as well!"



"Sarah did much of the heavy lifting when it came to organizing sight visits and evaluating which properties were important to me. She listened well to my feedback and used it to find the right place with only minor detours. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for places in the Evanston area."



"We needed to pick an apartment in a single day, and Sarah not only jumped on the search the week before we flew into town, but then went hours beyond our original plan to arrange second showings and advise us on a final selection. She then handled all the negotiations and got us the lease ahead of other parties. She is the paragon of commitment, energy and experience."



"Active agent who truly knows the market- was able to procure great tenants in a short amount of time and help me navigate making sure that the building documents were filled appropriately. Lovely to work with and look forward to doing it again!"



"Sarah recently helped us through a very difficult situation in which we needed to find a new place to live within 2 months. She was incredibly reassuring and helpful during a stressful time. Her knowledge of the northern suburbs of Chicago (Evanston, Glenview, etc.) was invaluable to us as we had never lived outside of the city before. Also, her knowledge of houses and attention to detail helped us spot things that we would not have noticed by ourselves. We also ended up using her referrals for a lendor and home inspector. Both of whom we were very happy with."



"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."



"Sarah was amazing--I can't say enough about her persistence and professionalism. She kept in constant communication and was extremely organized. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thank you, Sarah!"



"Sarah was an able guide who helped find a fantastic property for my needs. She was responsive to my requests, flexible to my hectic schedule, and worked hard to make sure I was comfortable. As this was my first home buying experience, I needed a lot of guidance, and am glad Sarah was my tutor. Will certainly enlist her expertise in the future and recommend fellow Evanstonians do as well."



"Sarah is a friend you can trust completely. I can't remember how many troubles I've encountered from the apartment hunting to the closing, but Sarah helped with EVERYTHING and even gave me great advice on finding a contractor. I would recommend Sarah to anyone who is a first time home buyer."



"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."



"Sarah was a great advisor throughout the process, which took several months to finally find a renter for our condo. She was not only engaged and patient but also, more importantly, appropriately guided us on what / when to adapt in terms of our offering (e.g. price point, some changes / fixes to the condo, etc.). Sarah -- you are awesome!"



"We don't even know where to begin with our high praise for Sarah! Working with her during the search and purchase of our first home was a wonderful experience -- from beginning to end. She is just an all-around awesome human being - so nice and fun to talk to but also very knowledgeable, diligent and savvy as far as the business-side goes. As first-time home buyers, my husband and I were unsure of all that the process entailed and she made it all less daunting for us by giving us guidance and important information whenever we needed it. Every step of the way, she made sure we were informed but then gave us the space we needed to make the decisions that needed to be made. Furthermore, each and every one of her referrals was absolutely AMAZING -- professionals who helped to make the whole process as efficient and smooth as possible as we moved along from one phase to the next. Our family will be forever grateful to have had Sarah as our guide on this journey!"

"Very helpful, friendly and knows the business. Very happy working with her. We appreciated her attention to detail and her professionalism. 2 thumbs up!"

"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."



"Sarah is super easy to work with and I had a lot of fun working with her. One of her key qualities is pro-activeness and being available to answer questions at any time. She is flexible to work around your schedule and will go above and beyond (even after closing) to keep you happy! Thanks so much for your help Sarah. Hope to work with you again!"

"Very detail oriented agent, does very good job in completing the mundane tasks so client is minimally involved with them. Great experience!"

As this was my first home buying experience, I needed a lot of guidance, and am glad Sarah was my tutor. Will certainly enlist her expertise in the future and recommend fellow Evanstonians do as well."



"My fiance and I were thrilled to work with Sarah. She worked with us when we didn't know exactly what we were looking for, through a job change, two location changes, and a type of housing change. She was great about offering us a variety of options, but stayed in tune with what we were looking for the entire time. She listened to us, never made us feel like we were second- always first. She was helpful with the closing, no matter how many bumps we came across with the process. She is very knowledgeable about her job, construction, and has a great personality. I'd highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for housing."

"Sarah made everything about the apartment hunting process easier. She helped us figure out what neighborhoods to target, what we could expect to find within our price range, and then she provided us a list of options, updated in real-time, as new properties came on the market. Sarah cheerfully escorted us around the city; never once did she try to pressure us into making a quick decision. When we settled on a place, she acted as a fierce advocate on our behalf. We could not recommend Sarah more highly!"



"Sarah was the perfect agent for us as first time home buyers. She is very good at what she does and made what could have been a very stressful process a lot of fun! Great listener, problem-solver, and devoted to her clients. Cannot recommend her enough."



"Sarah Coward is a 10 ( on a scale of 1-10) as a real estate agent. She was always available to answer our questions and worked tirelessly for us in finding us a place to live. She is an expert on the particulars of Evanston and her people skills and real estate knowledge are exceptional. She is also so easy to work with and listened and responded to our requests. Sarah is unique, I believe, in that she really cares about her clients future well-being- not just about getting a property sold. She wasn't pushy and even flagged potential problems that we were unaware of. She made our move from Minnesota less traumatic because we felt confident that she would find us the right place and neighborhood to start out in.Mostly, we felt like we were working with a friend, albeit an expert in real estate, who was looking out for us and wanted to see us happy in our new home. We are!"



"Sarah is a delight to work with and incredibly good at her job!"



"Sarah went above and beyond. I can't imagine having anyone else along for the ride. We met at an open and clicked. She is very knowledgeable, dedicated and patient! We found the perfect realtor in Sarah and will be using her when it is time again. She will always have our recommendation!"



"My wife and I are relocating from Colorado and needed some help in finding a suitable rental to make our transition smoother. We found Sarah by chance on one of the realty sites and really hit the jackpot. Sarah is professional, organized, and super friendly. She listened to our requirements, sent us some options, and let us choose our favorites. On the day we visited properties, Sarah had every location pre-programmed into her GPS in logical order so that we could efficiently complete our tour and end up where we needed to be to retrieve our car. Sarah is very accommodating, collaborative, and adaptable - no pressure or hard sales tactics. We would gladly partner with Sarah in the future and highly recommend her services to others. What a great experience!!!"



"Sarah was awesome to work with! She took us to many potential rentals that we had picked out ahead of time all over the Chicagoland area. She is very friendly and knowledgeable about all the places we saw. Everything went so smoothly even though we were looking at places from Lake Forest to Evanston. She truly wants the best for her clients and went out of her way to help us out. I would HIGHLY recommend her as a Realtor! Thanks again!"



"Sarah Coward is a treasure. I was in a panic searching for my perfect apartment, and once we met her, she took the search over with unparalleled professionalism and sunny confidence. She was always in close contact with us through the search, and right off the bat, knew what I was looking for. There is no way I would have found my new home without her. Thank you!"



"I'd like to acknowledge our appreciation for the care and expertise Sarah Coward provided to us in our hunt for a suitable living space. @properties came recommended and we were delighted in the serendipity of working with Sarah, both in person and remotely, as we live in Toronto. She was unfailingly helpful, informed, resourceful and respectful. I would happily and without hesitation recommend her as an agent and commend @properties for the high calibre of its staff."



"Sarah is a rock star. She knew so much about each condo before we went to view it because she did an amazing job researching the building. Sarah made this process about as stress free as possible."



"Sarah is both a competent professional and a lot of FUN! I enjoyed viewing properties with her and she made what can be a stress-filled process relatively easy. If I have any friends looking to relocate in the future, I will definitely tell them to contact Sarah for help."



"We are very pleased with the level of service that was provided to us by Sarah Coward. She responded to our communications very quickly and professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a great agent!"
