During this time, she worked in Boston and Washington DC and was responsible for all of the in-store merchandising and displays. In 1996, marriage and residency took her and Mark to California for a few years, but Vermont turned out to be the place they ultimately decided to raise their family.

Jen and I loved working with Sarah and the team at IPJ. As an out-of-state second home buyer, we relied on Sarah for so much advice and help. She is a true pro (and a very nice person!). Our hats off to her for doing a wonderful job!
Working with Sarah was a delight. We came to Vermont with a strong idea of what we wanted to find, however Sarah was not afraid to push our boundaries and open our eyes to new ideas that would work for our family. Sarah also knew that our time was limited and worked with our tight schedule to show us only the very best homes on the market. Her knowledge of the area was extensive and helped to solidify in our minds that Middlebury was the right place for us. We purchased a home unlike any we [...]
Sarah and the IPJ team patiently guided us new home buyers through every stage of the process. We could not be more happy with the process or the result and are especially happy with the house we bought and the price we bought it for. Sarah did a great job understanding our needs and preferences and in guiding us to homes that would suit us. Thank you - fantastic experience!
You were very accessible and made sure to provide me with timely, helpful and accurate information. You made a long distance transaction feel under control and well-supported!
Sarah was a pleasure to work with - professionalism, work ethic, commitment and character!
Sarah is smart, organized, completely professional (i.e. we felt proud to introduce her as your in this case- buyers broker). Sarah is completely a teammate, completely trustworthy and she worked hard and steadily and, after truly a complicated roller-coaster ride, where at one point our dream property sold to someone else, an absolute star getting the property to closing. I recommend IPJ and Sarah unreservedly and with the highest praise for their work on our behalf. They truly [...]
Buying and selling a home may have been our most challenging event to date. The excitement of finding our new home in Ripton and the realization of moving was life changing, however, the reality of selling our home in a vacuum weighed heavily on our entire family. Your team's efforts in such a short period of time to find the right buyer while keeping our levels of stress low was truly amazing. We cannot express how dedicated and professional you and your team were throughout [...]
Sarah's knowledge and communication are the things I remember most. She responded quickly every time I contacted her and was readily available to look at properties. That's why I'm the Owner of this lovely home - we looked at it first! She coached me calmly and clearly through every detail of the buying process and was extremely knowledgeable about the physical aspects of properties and legal requirements as well. This was very important to me since buying a home was a big leap. [...]
Sarah and the IPJ office were a pleasure to work with. Sarah was professional, knowledgeable and in constant communication with us throughout the process of selling our home. She took the time to walk us through the improvements that needed to be made at our home and she paid attention to every detail. We are very satisfied with the service that Sarah and IPJ provided.
Working with Sarah was wonderful! She was always willing to make time to answer any questions or concerns we had during the home buying process. Sarah worked very hard to make sure that we were up to date on any changes that had happened, or any matters that needed to be attended to. I would recommend her to friends without any reservations.
