We have used Sandy three times personally and I have referred her to some friends as well. I have never before used an agent more than once, so this is saying a lot already. Sandy goes out of her way to work for YOU, not herself. I cannot stress that enough since most agents just want to close the deal and move on because to them 10k here or there doesn't mean a lot in their commission. Working on one deal Sandy already got the property discounted $45k which was almost 10% of the deal price but wanted to go after $5k more. I mean this in the nicest way possible, but Sandy is a Bulldog when it comes to working for her client.
I could go on and on about her always keeping us in mind when properties come available, making the time to show us anything we wanted when we wanted. However, I think the most salient point is this, the last property the owners left a ton of junk behind and Sandy took it on herself to pay a company to come and not only move all the junk out but also clean it up, change out the locks and cover the termite tenting. We did not ask her to do any of those things, but she did.
I always say you can define a relationship not when everything is going well but when something goes wrong. Time and time, again Sandy has, without even a word jumped right in the middle of things going wrong and gone out of her way to make it often, beyond right. You should use Sandy if not for anything else her access to everyone and anyone in the industry, you need a window guy, she has one, you need some sort of expertise inspection, she knows a guy, you need a tree guy she'll find one.
I know this sounds a little over the top and I am trying not to make it sound that way but when I find someone that knows what they are doing and is great at it I feel like I need to let everyone know. In this crazy real estate market, we are in it is really helpful to find someone you can trust and rely on and Sandy and her team are those people.
Sandy is the consummate Real Estate Professional. Her experience and breadth of knowledge go beyond typical real estate transactions. She was instrumental in helping our family through our home buying process. She proactively sourced homes through our eyes and what she discerned was important to us. We felt we were receiving support from more than just an agent, she was knowledgeable in construction and permitting to an extent that made us feel very comfortable especially when she connected us with subject matter and craft experts who often confirmed her insights. In addition to Sandy's knowledge, and above all things, she is genuinely interested in her clients and demonstrated the highest of ethics and integrity. We were extremely fortunate to go through our home buying process with her leading the negotiations and closing transactions. She ensured that all parties involved were moving things along according to our closing target date. I could not have gone through this process without her, she took the stress off of us and made us feel secure knowing every detail was being handled in our best interest. She was absolutely amazing!
My wife and I were looking for our first home and we were referred to Sandy. She was absolutely amazing! We definitely aren't the easiest people to deal with and she handled it no problem. Not only did she find us a house in the area we wanted at the price we wanted, it even had an ocean view! She really worked tirelessly with us throughout the whole process setting up multiple appointments at different properties. The house we ended up with was on the market for an hour (10pm) by the time we were able to schedule a showing, and the next day an offer was in. The most impressive part of working with Sandy is she was always spot on. If there was a house we were interested in, she would know exactly what the offer should be, sometimes it was too high for us, but a week later that house sold exactly for what she estimated it would. It happened a couple times and I was really impressed by that. She really was awesome to work with and when we go to sell our house or buy a new one, I definitely will be going back to Sandy!
We were referred to Sandy by my co-worker who called her an “Angel”. And now we too highly recommend Sandy to anyone else selling or buying a home. No one will work harder for you. She is truly an amazing, hands-on, smart, creative woman, and she puts her heart into her work. She was there for us through the entire process, listening carefully, anticipating our needs & answering questions before we asked them. She has a passion for sharing all that north San Diego communities have to offer, so we knew having her as our spokesperson would be effective. Her negotiation skills and marketing plan were way above and beyond our expectations. And her expertise proved to be so helpful all through our sale process. Thank you very much, Sandy!
We just relocated from Seattle, WA to San Diego, CA. Our experience in house hunting was made so enjoyable by Sandy. She went above and way beyond in order for us to get in to our wonderful condo in Rancho Bernardo. She was involved in every aspect of the transaction and made every obstacle seem like it never happened. Her generosity, willingness and expertise really speak volumes as to the kind of person she is. If you ever are in need of a wonderful, knowledgeable, kind and hard-working Realtor, Sandy is the person to call! Thank you, Sandy!
We were relocating from another state and found that Sandy’s skills and knowledge of the area were exactly what we needed to reduce the stress of this transition. She’s excellent!
Sandy is an expert in real estate and an all-around fantastic agent to work with! She went above and beyond in her work and her kindness in helping my wife and I buy our first home. Sandy's expertise in real estate, banking, construction, finance, is phenomenal. She continued to awe and impress me every step of the way. She made our home buying process an enjoyable one which is tough to do since normally it's extremely stressful. In our experience with her, she was patient, friendly, flexible and responsive. If you're looking to buy or sell a home, do yourself a favor and work with Sandy!
Sandy is the best agent I have ever worked with hands down. Her level of expertise and her negotiating skills are head and shoulders above the rest. She came to the table with a specific strategy, coached us along the way, and in less than 1 week we had 5 offers on our home, with multiple at asking price. Start to finish from the time we decided to sell our home, fix things up, stage, list and very quickly sell...it was less than a month in total. As our buyer’s agent she has proven very patient and taken us and our 3 children to every home we have asked without question, something my wife and I both really appreciate. She never rushes us as we sit and debate over the homes, for what must seem an eternity with our 2-year-old running around. We have always found her to be very responsive via email, text, and phone at nearly every hour of the day. Sandra will continue to be our TOP choice for all our Real Estate needs, now and into the future!
Sandy was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. As first time home-buyers, she patiently guided us through everything, and happily showed us around five to ten houses every weekend for nearly two months until we found the right home. Even when the process was finally finished, she stopped by to make sure everything was going smoothly and left us feeling like we had gained a friend as well.
I highly recommend Sandy for a stress-free, enjoyable purchasing experience and a great follow up service. After being exhausted by 7 other real estate agents over the course of 4 years looking for a house in the greater San Diego area, I was referred to Sandy by my lender. Then things changed dramatically for the better!!! Sandy was an absolute delight to work with and she got me into a home in less than 3 months. She's great at understanding your needs and showing you homes within your budget. She had creative and affordable solutions to all my concerns about the various houses we saw. And she did a great job ushering me away from the less desirable neighborhoods. She made the negotiation part of the purchase easy and stress-free (unlike other agents who use stress tactics). Sandy also went above and beyond standard responsibilities of a real estate agent. After buying the house, she continued to engage and make sure I was happy with my purchase. She answered all my questions about how various appliances and devices work in the house (I'm a first-time house buyer). And had great network of repair servicemen, including a gentleman who saved me the cost of a new fridge by giving free advice over the phone. Again, would highly recommend Sandy to any buyer looking for a stress-free experience.
Sandy Sarro was amazing from start to finish. Being a first-time home buyer can be nerve wracking and Sandy genuinely cares for and has your best interest in mind. Sandy was super accessible and answered my questions very speedily throughout the week and weekend even putting together offers on Sunday evening. We are in our dream home and Sandy arranged for all the vendors we needed for our home. Sandy was fabulous, and I cannot recommend her enough. If you are looking for a realtor who is kind, hardworking and truly has your best interest in mind look no further. Thank you, Sandy!
What a great experience having Sandy help us achieve our dreams despite many setbacks and challenges! With this rapidly changing real estate market the competition is fierce, but Sandy was ON IT and we got our offer in within a few hours of this home coming on the market. She confidently and efficiently helped and guided us through all the obstacles that cropped up along the way and we are overjoyed with our new home!!
I highly recommend Sandy as a key partner to find the best home for your family, and to work with you without pressuring to make a decision. We relocated from Maryland in 2011 and found Sandy to be very knowledgeable about the area. She helped us to understand the local area, toured the key parts of Carlsbad, Encinitas, San Marcos, Solana Beach, and Cardiff by the Sea, and helped us to find an amazing house. Sandy was very open to listening to our needs, she keeps up on housing availability and realty trends, and she understands the contract process well. I highly recommend Sandy as your key partner for real estate needs.
Sandy is hands down the best! Her knowledge and enthusiasm to help her clients is just optimal. We found ourselves very stressed about the process of buying a home and working with a VA loan. After meeting Sandy, we knew we were in the right hands. She was always available to answer questions or have evening showings. Through the whole process she was very encouraging and genuinely excited for our family to find the right place. We are happy first-time homeowners now and refer Sandy to everyone we know is in need of a Realtor.
We are very happy to have found Sandra as she is responsible, responsive, and really knows the market. I can't stress how working with her eased our worries because we were out-of-town sellers. She had our interests in mind, was in constant communication, and made the experience hassle-free for us.
Sandra helped us sell our house at a time when the market was not in our favor. We needed to sell quickly and were amazed that we sold to the very first couple that viewed our house! The sale of our house closed less than 2 months after we put it on the market and for more than what we thought we would get! We are convinced this could not have happened without Sandra. When we started working with Sandra she came into our home and told us what we needed to focus on finishing (we were half way through a remodel) to get top dollar (and she was spot on!). Throughout the closing process she thoroughly explained what we needed to expect and was very experienced in negotiating with the purchasers. She went above and beyond. Another thing we were not expecting and know absolutely helped our quick sale, Sandra's staging expertise. We recommend Sandra to anyone we know in need of an agent and will absolutely, without a doubt, be using her on any future home purchases and sales.
We sold our home in San Marcos with Sandy. She was really professional and detail-oriented. I appreciated that she took the initiative to deal with the tenants who were moving, handled all of the paperwork to make sure we complied with current laws, and coordinated the cleanup and extensive repairs needed to make the home show like a model. She made the process really easy for us and negotiated a great price!
Working with Sandy has been incredibly pleasant in every way. Sandy is very professional, knowledgeable, responsible and patient. She fully understands the market, area, architecture, construction, as well as customer’s needs. We found her genuine, honest, not pushy and gave great advice. You can trust that she always has the customers best interests in mind. She shared her experience and recommendations with us to ensure we had enough information to make the best decisions we could. If you are going to venture into the real estate market in Southern California, you want Sandy on your side. She is the best.
Sandra has been as patient as a saint with our narrow requirements, coming from the Midwest wanting a great house yet being fearful of resale value in such an uncertain economy. Her advice (including helping me sell my house with minimal give backs to the buyer) was outstanding. Always informed, always geared towards our interests and not her own. I would trust her with any house she said to buy. She is a total delight to work with – fun, easy, flexible, thoughtful, and always gracious. Her level of customer service is the best I have ever seen in any industry.
It's been a long journey relocating from east coast to San Diego, long in both distance and time. Sandra was a tremendous help for my family through this process. I find her very customer-service oriented, dedicated, flexible and knowledgeable about local Southern California real estate. It's a very competitive market, you have to be ready to act on new listings. She always made herself available whenever I wanted to schedule an appointment, even nights and weekends.
