THE BACK STORY:
Sarah tells the story of a young couple who had been notified that the house they were renting was going to be torn down. The clock was ticking, the market was hot, their baby had just been born and panic had set in.
The first townhouse they made an offer on went for $80K over asking. The second one had been seen by hundreds of people and 16 offers were submitted on the first night. Sarah’s clients got the house—without being the highest offer.
“I made a point of submitting in person and met the older couple who were selling,” Sarah says. “They’d raised their family in the home, and we got talking about my clients—the kind of neighbourhood they were looking for, the fact they had a new baby. Later, my clients met that couple. ‘You know what got you the house?’ they said. ‘It was your agent.’ We made the whole thing human. They just wanted to sell to the right people.”
Sarah’s first career was in law. After her children were born, she worked in sales, advertising and interior design. Each role has given her practical skills and business insight that she brings to her work as the Trust team member for Etobicoke, where she lives with her family.
But focusing on the people, not simply the transaction, is what sets Sarah apart. “I’m very nurturing. I want to know what’s important to my clients. Then we work together until we find it.” One couple, for example, looked at close to 100 properties before making an offer. “That’s okay,” Sarah says. “Sometimes these decisions aren’t made in a day.”
