She went above and beyond to help us in our search to find our home. Sarah would communicate with us and check in throughout the process. Our home we bought was a short sale that took a few months to process. Sarah was on top of it, and worked well with the banks, our lender and escrow. She thoroughly understood the home buying process and was able to explain all of our millions of questions. Thank you so much Sarah for your help! - the Williamsons
We chose her as our selling agent after visiting an open house she was hosting. Her approach is friendly, engaging, professional and very communicative - everything we were looking for. She was attentive to every detail through the process and resolved potential obstacles with ease and professionalism. I would highly recommend Sarah if you want the best out there!
From start to finish, Sarah made sure we were well taken care of. The whole process began with an initial meeting, where we were able to voice some of our interests and learn what to expect. Even though were were just looking for a condo, Sarah made us feel like we were a top priority. From responding to late-night texts and even to last minute requests, Sarah always responded promptly and helped us see places we liked as soon as possible. As first-time home buyers, Sarah patiently guided us through what can become a very stressful and frustrating experience. Before we finally purchased our current home, we had actually placed an offer on another unit. The offer was accepted (after some strategic negotiating by Sarah), but unfortunately fell through when the sellers backed out in the middle of escrow. We were disappointed to say the least, but Sarah handled the somewhat unprecedented situation with ease. It became clear she was not only our real estate agent, but also our personal advocate, who made sure the contract was ultimately cancelled on mutually agreeable terms. When they say "everything happens for a reason," believe it. Even though we were crushed at losing our first condo, it all made sense when we went to see our current home. We were told from the outset that there were other offers on the table. Sarah helped us put together a competitive, but fair offer. During the course of negotiations, she had frequent discussions with the seller's agent to try and get information that might give us an edge. Of note, when we were placing our "best and final" offer on the place, we wanted it so badly we were willing to offer above asking price. To our surprise, Sarah actually told us we should not offer that much since she thought a lower amount would suffice (imagine that, a real estate agent telling you to offer less!). It made us nervous, but in the end she was right. Our final offer was accepted (at significantly less than we were willing to pay, too!), and that time we were able to close without any major issues. With all that said, we were very glad we went to Sarah for help buying our first home. If and when the time comes for us to sell and purchase a new place, we would gladly return. Sarah is surrounded by a great team as well, which offers additional insight and expertise. She is incredibly knowledgeable in what she does and will help you find your dream home.
When we started looking for our first home, we were referred to her by some friends, and she helped us look in different areas around San Diego. She was honest with pros and cons, and she was excellent at communicating with both my husband and me. She was very professional, helped us move through the home-buying process smoothly, and she is a warm person to interact with. I highly recommend Sarah!
My reviews going to seem a bit corny but I can’t help myself. I’m from Oceanside which is in San Diego but I’m completely clueless with any area south of Del Mar. We recently moved back to California from out of state and she helped guide us through purchasing our home in (southern) San Diego. She took the time to drive me around different areas to familiarize myself with them and was honest about areas I may not be comfortable in despite the fact that they could’ve been an easy sale. She also did a great job calming my anxiety when I started to second guess myself and took the time to throughly the explain issues I hadn’t experienced in home buying purchase/selling process yet. We were buying and selling at the same time so there were plenty of questions from us in addition to frustration with other agents involved (not Sarah or her team!) Thank you for making the process seem much easier than it probably was and for not letting me quit and hide in an apartment! My children love their home and couldn’t be happier in San Diego! We’ll definitely reach out again should we need another agent in San Diego or if somebody needs a recommendation!
She helped me and my husband buy our first place in Oceanside, and we immediately felt comfortable working with her. She is professional, very knowledgeable, patient and a genuinely friendly person. We felt like she truly listened to our requests and offered her expertise to make our buying experience successful and enjoyable. She responds right away with phone calls, emails and work responsibilities. She is a wonderful person and great to work with. Again, I highly recommend Sarah as you can feel confident in her to get the job done.
She is patience, a strong advocate for her clients, and a honest person. My husband and I enjoyed working with Sarah on the purchase of our first home. We highly recommend her!
My wife and I worked with Sarah Lane last year in order to find and ultimately purchase our new family home for our family of 6. This was made all the more difficult by the fact that we really were racing the clock as my wife was 6 months pregnant and we were trying to avoid nesting at a current home that was already in escrow to be sold so to say the deck was stacked against us was bit of an understatement. But Sarah's experience and calmness and support helping us to find homes that were exactly what my family needed and helped us negotiate with the other agents and ultimately with some combative sellers was really what made our experience stand out and one that's going to keep us coming back to Sarah Lane for all of our real estate needs in the future.
We closed and moved into our new home less than 30 days. I highly recommend her as your realtor to buy your dream home in California. Sarah was patient, smart, highly knowledgeable about real estate market, and was incredibly flexible and accommodating in scheduling viewings. She was patient with all my questions and generous in giving detailed feedback, pointing me in the best direction, helping set realistic expectations throughout the process, and basically guided me through every step of the way. Going through the home-buying process by myself, I felt tremendously grateful for her guidance. She was professional and responded quickly whether by email or text. Also important to me was the fact that she put absolutely no pressure on me and provided information in an even-handed, accurate manner by several course-changes in what I was looking for. She even helped me a lot after close and moved in. Moreover, she is highly attentive to detail, so much so that on several occasions. I can’t imagine having a more positive experience and recommend her without any reservation to anyone looking to buy their dream home. Thanks Sarah!!!
They were very patient, professional and responsive. I felt no pressure from them which was important to me, and they did not waste time showing properties that didn't meet my criteria. They answered all my questions and assisted even after the house closed when I reached out. From beginning to end awesome service. Highly recommend them.
Sarah took the time to ensure that she fully understood what we were looking for and smoothly navigated the process once we had found the right fit. She went above and beyond our expectations with working to get our questions answered and really connected with us on a personal level. I look forward to referring her to anyone else I know and working with her again!
