Sarah has an unparalleled work ethic and drive. She went far beyond the call of duty in making my first home buying experience a seamless process. Before we finalized our purchase, we needed some questions answered from Arlington County zoning. Sarah went to zoning on my behalf and worked for hours to get my issue resolved. This is only one example where Sarah went the extra mile to assist her client. I have the highest respect for Sarah's professionalism, time management, and skills in negotiation.
I think it would be hard to find another agent that works harder for her clients and knows the DC/VA housing market better than Sarah. As first time home buyers, Sarah was an incredible resource for us. She guided us through the entire process of buying a home - comparing different homes in the area, helping us figure out what to look for and what questions to ask, and ultimately placing an offer, obtaining a loan, and closing on our dream house! Sarah inspires confidence that you are working with the best in the business by her knowledge of both the housing market and home buying process and her quick and thorough responses to questions. The fact that she was fun to work with and obviously loves her job is just icing on the cake!
Sarah went above and beyond to guide us through a successful purchase well below appraised value on our townhome. She was very fast to respond to me and the seller agent which helped us close the deal very quickly. I really appreciated that she showed us homes that stayed within our defined price range and didn’t try to push us into a higher price point.
My wife and I decided to sell our condo somewhat last minute and we could not be happier with how things went with Sarah as our realtor. Within a few hours of my text message to kick things off she was able to meet with us at our place and she already had all the analysis and pricing figured out prior to arriving so it was really easy to discuss our plans and get the condo listed. She lined up the listing information, staging, photographs, and open house and in a matter of days our listing was active. Sarah was always in constant communication with us on what to expect. Sarah also made sure to get in detail of who came through our home and get detailed feedback for us.
We ended up getting an offer for full asking price within two days of the listing going live. Unfortunately, the buyer ran into some unforeseen circumstances and at the last minute had to walk away but in the end, it didn’t even really matter because Sarah had it back on the market and was able to get yet another offer for full asking price the very next day. We accepted and ended up closing only a few days later than the original closing date with the first buyer.
Sarah is very straight forward and gives honest feedback on what to do and what not to do when selling and purchasing our home. We have worked with Sarah twice now, once for buying and once for selling, and have had excellent results both times. She definitely has your best interests at heart and has creative ideas to net you the most money.
People always say: "My Real Estate Agent is the Best!"
However, they never qualify their statements to me in a way that clearly demonstrates why.
So an agent can be smart, personable, knowledgeable as to the specifics of their profession, etc. etc..
That isn't enough.
If you are someone who needs more than just someone to show up, open doors, and give little commentaries on properties, then we are alike.
I needed some help. I needed some guidance.
I was short on time, on patience, and I am not someone that has the fortitude to see a hundred homes.
A home is important.
Your home provides physical comfort and protection, a place where your emotions can be fully expressed, and a sanctuary for spiritual rejuvenation after coming in from the frenetic outside world.
I see a great agent as a matchmaker that brings one or more persons together with the space that will nourish them in all of these ways. It is an almost metaphysical union, that can only be carried out by someone that the buyer(s) are able to develop deep rapport with, on multiple levels.
For this to happen the agent must be intuitive. They must be intuitive to the degree that they know precisely what you want even if you do not, or if you think you do, but are unable to express it with any degree of clarity.
They must also be able to encourage you to move forward when you are discouraged, but to never be overly pushy. They must be able to guide you, but also be able tell to you when you are being stupid and why.
They have to be aggressive when working on your behalf, but gentle in all of their dealings with you: "The sensitive and fragile home buyer."
They have to approach the locating, negotiation, and execution of a home purchase as if it were on their own behalf.
For all the years that you will live happily in your home, you will always remember your agent as the person that brought to you a place for which you were destined.
You will think of them as you would the person that introduced you to your beloved spouse or that one educator who changed the way you think about life.
Yes, I could say that my realtor is patient, astute, accommodating, and amiable. I could say this, but It's the hard to define qualities, that make Sarah the perfect agent for me, and for all of you with whom the previous words resonate.
I write this with great consideration:
Sarah Kim Cavanagh is amazing, She's the bomb, She's a super hero, and yes MY AGENT IS THE BEST!!!
We think Sarah is great at what she does. She'll take the time to get to know what your like and dislike are. Then she'll use that to show you the house of your dreams.
Sarah was very knowledgeable of the Virginia area and worked hard to find the perfect property for my family. She exercised great care for us as clients throughout the process and went above and beyond what was expected of her as a realtor.
As a first time homebuyer, the whole process can be very overwhelming and intimidating. Sarah was an amazing agent to work with. She made the whole process seamless, and catered to my schedule and my needs as necessary. There was never any push to buy a place if I didn't feel comfortable or showed any hesitancy. She explained all the details I needed to know, and answered every one of my 1000 questions. I would recommend her 100% and would definitely work with her again in the future.
Sara is very professional, knowledgable about her job. She is also thoughtful and ready to help whenever we have problems. Plus, she has the strategy to help us to win over the Seller!
This was my first home buying experience and Sarah was there every step of the way to guide me through it. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about the area I wanted to live and helped me find the perfect home. The home I ended up purchasing was 100% move in ready and had everything on my "need to have" list as well as the majority of the items on my "nice to have" list. I will definitely recommend her to any friends looking to purchase a home in the future.
Sarah was a wonderful realtor and resource during our home buying process. She responded to calls, emails, and texts in a very quick and thorough manner. She has a great personality and negotiated some great points into our closing. I would highly recommend her!
This is our first home buying experience and Sarah was wonderful through the hole process. Once we found our initial price range was going to be unrealistic Sarah helped us find the perfect home in our price range in a wonderful location. Sarah is very knowledgeable about the home buying process and answered our questions very promptly. She also provided assistance when we were working with the loan company on securing our financing. The home we ended up choosing was unfortunately priced very fair so there wasn't a whole lot of wiggle room in the price we offered but Sarah was able to help us get some options up front from the sellers. Sarah was an excellent resource and helped us find the perfect home.
Sarah has a great understanding of a buyer/sellers needs. Went above and beyond what I was expecting from a real estate agent, and ultimately found me THE perfect property. Will definitely recommend and will be referring all future business to her.
We had to pull out of the house hunting after some time because of my wife's health issues. But we plan on using Sarah when we resume looking. She is wonderful at her job.
Sarah is really helpful and knowledgable. She not only sells the home but the area as well. She is able to provide information on what is nearby and what makes the neighborhood unique. I was very impressed with how well and quickly she was able to work with me to find a home that met my needs.
Sarah was absolutely amazing. Very knowledgeable and professional. Her local knowledge of the area was very helpful and she was always responsive and proactive.
Three key points came to mind in regards to working with Sarah Kim.
1) Her patience: As a first time home buyer I had a lot of demands and even more questions. Sarah worked tirelessly & consistently to answer my questions and went above and beyond the call of duty to meet my needs.
2) Her determinations: Let's be honest, every perspective home buyer wants the same things: a beautiful hoe, in a great location, at an affordable price; this unfortunately means competition. When you find that perfect place and the bids from other prospects begin to roll in, you want Sarah Kim on your side.
3) Her outgoing personality: Searching for a home can be stressful and time consuming. That's why for me, it just made sense to go with Sarah. Sarah Kim is one of the hardest working, friendliest and outgoing people I know who also just so happened to find me my dream home.
Sarah is an excellent real estate agent. She helped my wife and me with our house hunting in the Summer of 2013. After showing us an initial property, Sarah quickly narrowed down the listings in our target market and scheduled multiple showings. Within three weeks of searching, Sarah led us to our new home and helped us place a successful bid. She reached out to us each day as we submitted paperwork in preparation for closing and demonstrated a white glove service approach to her profession.
I had been looking for a home nearly a year when I met Sarah. Within 3 weeks of enlisting her expertise, I found exactly what I was looking for, in my price range and in the right neighborhood. She was fantastic! She wasn't afraid to ask the seller the tough questions or negotiate on my behalf. This was my first home purchase, and Sarah explained all the details so there were no surprises. I felt comfortable every step of the way. In the end, I got exactly what I wanted and a great deal!
Always diligent, and, extremely helpful throughout the process. Sarah worked tirelessly with me during the sale of my condo in Washington, DC. Approachable, friendly, and unrelenting in finding the best opportunity, Sarah demonstrates a dedication and trustworthyness as a real estate professional.
If you need a shrewd negotiator in your corner (and who seemingly is available 24hrs. a day by cel or e-mail), then you've made the right choice in having Sarah assist you with all your real estate needs. Period.
Awesome Agent, Hard Working, and shes always willing to go the extra step to make the process easier.
While going through the contract she explained everything, and handled the whole process with such professionalism.
I highly recommend!
Sarah worked very hard throughout the process of selling our home. She was patient when we decided we needed more time, and ready to get to work when we were ready to list. Our home went under contract in 4 days for full list! Sarah is very personable, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with.
