While originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Sarah spent much of her youth traveling abroad and living in some very unique destinations. “My father was an economic consultant and brought the family along to Rowanda and Albania so we saw the direct relationship of urban planning and economic security in these countries,” she says. “It gave me a tremendous sense of respect for the time and resources of others who make sacrifices to buy their piece of the American Dream.” Sarah helps clients see the big picture when evaluating neighborhoods and buildings. “I feel like I am helping them to tell the story of who they are,” Sarah says. Sarah’s background in interior design stems from running both the San Francisco and New York branch’s of a home staging, interior design, and home furnishings company, (Studio D). One of the biggest assets of having a previous interior designer as your broker, is that interior designers are trained to interpret a client’s personality and verbal desires, into a space. Many times we don’t know exactly what we want until we start looking, but having someone with experience in this technique, can really help jump start the process. “I am notorious for finding those hidden gems in neighborhoods they can grow in.”
 
A natural adventurer, Sarah is always on the go. “This city is about juxtaposition—I’m not into cookie cutter high rises but I love seeing how people decorate townhomes and brownstones with such charm and attention to detail. It’s a lot like how New Yorkers dress—there’s always a twist of some sort to personalize it.”
 
Sarah’s extensive knowledge of the city and her appreciation for its wide ranging architectural vocabulary is a help for anyone looking to find the ideal setting for their New York story.

Sarah was the best real estate agent I have ever worked with in New York. She helped me find an apartment that I absolutely love when time was of the essence. Sarah is a good listener and she understands what her clients are looking for. She was selective and did a fantastic job showing me the kind of listings that fit my criteria rather than whatever was available in the market. Sarah was very responsive to all my inquiries and stayed in constant communication until the lease was signed. She even made sure I was happy with my new place after I had moved in. I highly recommend working with Sarah on your next apartment search!

I am a difficult client with very specific space needs and preferences. (I am an architect, so I am very particular about my living space.) It was clear from my first meeting with Sarah that she just "gets it." I gave her a brief, somewhat lofty description of the type of space I was searching for, and everything she showed me was precisely along those lines. In addition to being in tune with her clients' needs, Sarah is punctual, articulate, and efficient. Due to personal reasons I decided to delay my move, but as soon as I begin searching again, Sarah will be the first person I call.
