“Thank you for all of your help on the sale of the Daphne duplex. Your persistence, patience, and professionalism were all critical for seeing the sale through to the end. While it took a lot longer than any of us expected, your help was crucial to making sure the delays did not have a negative financial impact, which was a huge help in making sure that the delay was really “no big deal”. Most importantly, your communications were always on point and fast, whether by email, text, or call.

Most importantly, your communications were always on point and fast, whether by email, text, or call. I’d be happy to serve as a referral for a future potential client, particularly if it was a remote sale like this one. Of course, I’d definitely work with you again in the event (unlikely, I hope) of a future real estate transaction in the Portland area. Best wishes in the future, and thanks again!”

“We were very impressed with Sara’s professional, kind, and knowledgeable manner. She did a good job of finding “the house” for us. We were grateful for her negotiating skills, so we were able to get the house for a good price, too!”
“Sara is honest and wants to not only get you into your new home, but make sure you are happy. Sara is trustworthy and has your best interests in mind. Thanks Sara!”
- Jeff Moss
“We could write volumes about all the support Sara gave us while selling our house. We already had an accepted offer on a new house and had to sell our house quickly. Sara went to work and we had an offer on our place in four days. Her work didn't stop there. She gave us outstanding support during negotiations and also amazing help during the inspection process and needed repairs. She was so much more than our agent. She was a good friend with a wealth of knowledge. We couldn't have done it all without her. We would highly recommend her to anyone needing an agent.
Thank you. Sara!”
- Dan & Meredith Croft
"Sara was a great resource for not only selling our property, but, for getting the right people in to do repairs. With all the craziness on this sale it really showed her integrity. Thanks!"
"We could not have sold our condo without Sara. She was honestly a lifesaver! Living out of state from our rental property, Sara went above and beyond in helping get the place ready for sale. She was always responsive with quick replies and advice to keep us calm and get the most $$ for our place. Her knowledge of the market was incredible and her relationships with others in the industry proved invaluable. Truly you won't find a better person to help you with what can be such a trying process. An added bonus..... her sense of humor is amazing."
“Our house buying experience was most satisfactory using Sara Lewis. She seems to be well versed in the different areas of Portland, and we were able to narrow down our search after looking at many houses. Finally, we found the perfect house for us. She was very patient leading us through the whole home buying process, and we would highly recommend her.”
"I can’t say enough positive things about Sara & Danielle. They made a very scary and uncertain time fun and exciting by being so thorough and helpful and providing me with so much knowledge that I couldn’t have been more confident in my ultimate decision of which home to buy. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy (or sell) a home. Thank you Sara and Danielle!"
"Sara was amazing to work with! We were selling and buying so timing was tough and our home needs were very specific. Sara showed us everything on the market with our specifications and then some. She always let us know when a new house she thought we might like came on the market and was willing to show it to us ASAP. We ended up buying a house before it was even finished being built. Sara worked with the buyer of our old house and the seller of our new one to help us avoid having to move twice. She went above and beyond what we would have expected our real estate agent to do. (Sara even arranged our movers!) Our new house is absolutely perfect and we never would have found it without Sara."
I am a contractor and have been in the business for years. I have worked with a lot of Realtors over the years and have never found one that does as good a job as Sara. She always answers my call, or gets back to me promptly. She does a great job actually selling my properties, by following up with agents, buyers, etc where as other agents do not. She holds open houses, always keeps flyers in the flyer box, stays current on the market and is very creative and aggressive at putting deals together. She has renewed my faith in real estate agents.
"When we first began our search for an investment property, we had no idea how many homes we would reject before an offer would be accepted and a deed recorded. I thought Sara would write us off after months of disappointments but she was faithful and cheerful throughout the long, often grueling, process. Sara was attentive, conscientious and incredibly capable but, equally important, a joy to spend time with (lots of time!). Ultimately Sara made the experience something memorable and rewarding. I would encourage anyone to use her services."
"My husband and I recently were in a position of needing to sell our home in a timely manner. We had researched and met with several realtors before choosing Sara Lewis. She happened to come highly recommended from a close friend, and for good reason. After meeting with her we were skeptical of her ability to be effective given her relative youth in a very competitive and somewhat ruthless environment of real estate. However, she definitely impressed us with her eagerness and thorough approach. We had successful open houses with great feedback were able to glean information to alter approach in making our home as marketable as possible in a not-so-thriving environment. Sara did a great job staying positive and encouraging us when things were difficult, especially when we had to lower our asking price. She was able to guide us into a successful sale of our home. Even in a market where selling a home is the last thing you want to do, we were able to sell our home in less than two months. We are very pleased with the services that Sara provided for us and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. She gives her clients very personal attention and she truly cares about their overall happiness."
"I had the pleasure of working with Sara while selling my condo. Sara was professional and honest throughout the entire transaction. Her ability to explain the process and answer my numerous questions was very appreciated. She also had great knowledge of the market and knew exactly what price my condo would sell at. We actually accepted an offer within 40 days of coming on the market, which we were so excited about in this down market! The buyer had trouble with her loan and closing was delayed by several weeks. Sara remained on top of things throughout this time period and I think she was one of the main reasons we actually closed. I was very pleased with the outcome and would recommend Sara Lewis as a broker to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Portland area!"
"Sara was a tireless worker throughout the process of selling my home. Not only did she handle and coordinate all the prep work and staging before my home came on the market, as well as the expected tasks of marketing and negotiation, but she also went above and beyond in assisting me in the many logistics involved in the closing process (and even assisted AFTER closing). She was a terrific advisor as I walked through a process that was previously unfamiliar to me"
"Working with Sara was so much fun. I actually missed driving around town with her once we had found our home. She was so patient with us while we discovered what it was that we were looking for. She even waited patiently while we chased our toddler every where we went! She was very knowledgeable and that proved beyond valuable for two first time home buyers. Sara was aware of things and made suggestions that we never would have thought of on our own. I definitely feel that Sara was on our side and we came out on top because of her. Thank you, Sara!"
-Rose and Dana Freeman
"We felt comfortable with Sara from the start. She was personable and professional. As first time homebuyers we benefited greatly from her expert guidance. She helped us define what we were looking for and then helped us find it in an ocean of properties. Her detailed knowledge of Portland’s many neighborhoods was invaluable. We appreciated her patience as we sifted through countless not-quite-right houses until we found the gem that would be our home. We could always count on Sara to be honest, objective and undoubtedly on our side. Sara was a tremendous asset to us and we would highly recommend her to any would-be home buyer."
-Becca and Brian Jones
"I would recommend Sara to anyone buying or selling a home. She was terrific to work with and I don't think we would be as happy as we are, had we worked with anyone else. During our search she found so many houses that I didn't see when searching myself on-line, she was always available to show me property and she had terrific feedback to share. Once we found our home, she did a great job negotiating for us and helped us work through several issues by calling in favors and staying on top of our lender and anyone else that needed a push. She did such a great job, and had we used a different, less attentive agent, I am not sure we would have had the same great end result."
-Kelsey Knutson and Justin Pounds
"Working with Sara for the sale of our mother's condo was an amazing experience! We had previously had the condo listed with another realtor for 9 months and had very little action. We gave the listing to Sara and within 12 days we had multiple offers and were in escrow, thanks to her hard work marketing and open houses. Sara had low cost staging ideas that worked, communicated with us often, and made the process as convenient and efficient for us as possible. Thanks Sara, we highly recommend your services for anyone looking for a realtor."
-Katie and Dave Krieves
"As first time homebuyers, we didn't know what we wanted or what to expect from the home buying process. Sara was very patient with us and she also took the time to teach us more about buying a home and what steps we'd need to take to make our purchase. We were extremely picky and it took us four months to find our home! However, once we found it we ended up getting into a multiple offer situation, but Sara did a great job negotiating on our behalf and we ended up with the house! We couldn't be happier."
-Crystal and Andy Jones
"One of us first met Sara as a result of an Open House that she was hosting. Her friendly personality and exuberance made an instant impression, so when we later decided to buy a house in the Portland area, we asked Sara to help us. This turned out to be a great decision because Sara went out of her way to accommodate us and to show us many houses over a period of several weeks. Sara was always helpful and her insight was very instrumental in our final decision on purchasing a house. It turns out that the house she liked the most was also the house we liked and ultimately decided to buy. We would highly recommend Sara to anyone selling or buying a house, and if we ever decide to move again we will surely contact her first."
