Rozella Oliver and Evan Davis, January 2017

“When we moved to Southern California from the East Coast a little over 10 years ago, we needed a real estate agent who we could trust and who knew the Pasadena/South Pasadena/San Marino market inside and out. Several colleagues and friends recommended Sarah to us, and we are so grateful that they did.

Picky about what we were looking for, Sarah guided us through our search for the perfect starter house. Always responsive, she made herself available to see houses and was ready with the pertinent information about the homes we viewed. She helped us prepare a strong offer — and advised us where we needed to go with a counter offer — to be the winning bid on a bungalow in South Pasadena that became our home. After purchasing our new home, Sarah was invaluable in helping us find the services and referrals needed to begin our lives in our new house.

Ten years later when our family outgrew our bungalow, we turned to Sarah to help us sell our home. Once again, her experience proved priceless. With attention to detail and a command of the current micro-real estate market in South Pasadena, Sarah helped us prepare our home for listing, gave thoughtful comments about staging, drafted our disclosure documents in a timely manner, and repeatedly checked the house to ensure it was in order. She organized and dissected the multiple offers we received on the house and helped us evaluate the nuanced differences in seemingly similar offers. Exhibiting both sophistication and calmness, she deftly steered us through the counter offer process that eventually yielded a selling price well over the list price.

Her extensive knowledge in the business of buying and selling homes, combined with her professionalism, integrity, and patience, make Sarah a standout. She will continue to be our agent as we begin our search for the next perfect home for our family.”
