Thank you for your kind words. We loved working with you!

“Sarah is an extremely professional and competent realtor who provided tremendous advice to us on what needs to be upgraded to get the highest value for our house while spending the least amount of time and money. Sarah, with one of her associates, transformed our house in less than three weeks into a contemporary beach house which was perfect for the current housing market. Sarah did an outstanding job in determining the best pricing strategy while “dotting all of the I’s, and crossing all of the T’s” in developing a terrific portfolio of photos and an “out of the ballpark” video that showcased the true value of our house. She provided accurate and timely advice during the negotiation period to make sure we were protected. We struck gold in hooking up with Sarah and the Strock team and highly recommend them to anybody contemplating selling their house.”
