SALES MANAGER/ REALTOR
There’s no better feeling than handing over a set of keys to a new homeowner or making the happy call to let someone know their house has been sold. I love chasing that feeling. I know that real estate is about people—it requires listening, being responsive and getting resourceful to find the perfect home solution whether you’re buying or selling.

PETER & OLGA
"We couldn’t recommend Sara Hopkins and her wonderful team more highly. From the initial contact to well after the close on our home, Sara went above and beyond our high expectations with her professionalism, communication, and expert knowledge of the local market. As buyers, we felt well represented in the financial transaction. Sara thoroughly explored every scenario regarding the condition of the older home we purchased, and her referrals to home inspectors, structural engineers, and mortgage lenders proved invaluable. Relocating from out of state, Sara’s superlative knowledge of local laws and codes put our minds at ease. It was truly a pleasure to work with Sara and her team."
