As anyone who has been through the process of selling a home knows, it isnt always easy. Sarah, your overall knowledge of every aspect of real estate is priceless! There was never a time that we couldnt ask a question. Whether it was nighttime, weekends or even on your vacation! you were always there. Many thank to you and the IPJ team.
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.
Sarah was fantastic to work with. She was always available - we had a response to any text, email or phone call within 24 hours and usually within less time than that. Every complication that arose she took in stride, had answers, encouragement and/or someone's name at her fingertips who could help us. She was always professional, encouraging and enthusiastic. I can't imagine trying to do this without her! When we got to closing it was smooth as can be because of Sarah's [...]
Sarah is a focused, hardworking professional. She got results, and kept things moving until the right thing happened. Our home sold immediately and I know it was in large measure due to following her advice throughout the process. We're forever grateful!
So easy to talk to, always listened and always got back to me. I explained what I wanted and you found me a home that fit my lifestyle perfectly.
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!
As first-time home buyers, we knew very little about the process. Sarah kept us informed and excited. From new listings to showings to helping us successfully close on our new house, Sarah was all we could have hoped for in an agent: she was available at all times, well informed, and fun to work with!
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 [...]
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!
We were extremely fortunate to find Sarah Peluso and IPJ's services in November of 2017. Our property had been on the market for a year with another Realtor. When we began working with Sarah, we had an immediate uptick of interested buyers, and offers. Four months later our property had been sold! Sarah and her team at IPJ were terrific in every way. We enthusiastically recommend their services!
