What My Clients Say

Jamie Lou H.

Stephen G.

Buyer/Seller
‟Not only did Sara sell our condo in EIGHT DAYS for 10% OVER ASK, but she also helped us negotiate a great deal for our new home, which we absolutely love. She was ALWAYS there to help with every possible question and issue, no matter how big or small. She went WELL above and beyond what I think most agents would do. There is no doubt that I will al ways call her first (and recommend her to others) for any future real estate transaction. Thanks, Sara” Read More ▾

Sana M.

Buyer
‟I recently bought a home through Sara and she was fantastic to work with.  She's very knowledgeable on all things real estate and was able to guide us in navigating this incredibly rough housing market. I believe her advice is what got our offer accepted. Not only was Sara great when it came to walking us through the offer process, she provided valuable insight and guidance throughout the process, including raising things I wouldn't have known to consider during the inspection process. She's honest, responsive, easy to talk to, and a very clear communicator, all things that make the home buying process so much easier. I've bought homes before, but buying a home with Sara was the easiest and most pleasant home buying experience I've had.  I strongly recommend working with her and hope to work with her again myself in the future” Read More ▾

Samantha B.

Buyer
‟Sara is the absolute dream real estate agent. She came highly recommended, and she did not disappoint; she exceeded all expectations. She was incredibly helpful, but most importantly honest with us. She is knowledgeable, assertive, and will make sure you understand everything when it comes to buying a home. Sara makes dreams happen!”

Susie H.

Seller
‟Sara was a great realtor, particularly for me as a first-time seller. She kindly guided me through the process, drawing on her extensive experience and skills. Her sense of humor and down-to-earth approach were a bonus, making the daunting process much smoother. Also, she did a great job of negotiating the sale: she was assertive and businesslike, while still maintaining a friendly tone. I highly recommend her” Read More ▾

Shaun Bull

Renter
‟We initially hired Sara to locate a single family house for us to rent. Six years later, we finally were ready to buy. And buy we did :-) I'm impressed with the fact that she kept in contact with us the whole time. I'll admit, I'm picky, especially when it comes to big purchases and our home purchase is the biggest yet. This is one of the reasons w hy I knew that I had to deal with someone who could keep up. Sarah, didn't just keep up. She was 1 step ahead of us the whole time.  Patiently explaining every little detail. She has a perfect balance of patience and tact. Which is extremely important considering how easily emotions can flare when buying or selling your house. If you're seeking representation to buy, sell, or lease, look no further. Sara is hands down, the best in LA” Read More ▾

Adrina Garibian

Buyer
‟ I can't say enough positive things about Sara. She was incredibly communicative the entire time I was going through the purchasing process, and always made time to respond to any questions or concerns that I had. She is incredibly thorough and thoughtful, and also gave me an incredibly sweet gift after escrow closed to celebrate my purchase. I would recommend her 100 times over. ” Read More ▾

I was a nervous first buyer and she talked me through everything without me feeling any pressure.

Jay N

Buyer
‟Sara, I want to Thank You for helping us on our trip to Los Angeles last week.  We were very impressed by you.  You know your markets and your real estate.  Your helping me understand the differences between R-1, R-1.5 and R-2 was just one example of your thorough knowledge of everything about real estate.  (I was amused when I told you I was learn ing a lot and the seller's agent chimed in and said she was as well.)  The tactful way you asked questions and never directly said anything negative about a property but still managed to give us a complete picture of the positives and negatives on each property was extremely valuable to us.  Thanks to you we were able to get a very accurate understanding of each property which was very helpful in our family discussions.  Your wise counsel has been critically important.  Thank you again for all your help.  ” Read More ▾

Marge C.

Buyer
‟First of all, I want to tell you from the bottom of my heart what a pleasure it has been working with you at the other end of the transaction. I've been a full-time realtor for over 33 years, and it's rare that I don't have to do the other agent's work. You are truly a professional at what you do, besides being a lovely person to work with. I alway s commented on how delightful it has been working with you. You actually do your job and more, and still have your client's best interest at all times. I actually laughed at a couple of the other offers and how they may have been high in price and all cash, but the agents presented the offers and their clients so poorly that they were not even a consideration. I can say that the strongest other offer was my own client, all cash, and liked very much. Had they bought the property I could have gone back into the deal after the negotiations. It would have been a slightly lower commission do to me representing both ends of the deal. In spite of that, sellers chose your clients as she liked you as their strong agent as well as your clients being lovely, credible people” Read More ▾

Mini Tharakkal

Buyer
‟Sara made a good impression on me as soon as I met her in the process of buying our first house in the Los Angeles area.  She has a lot of experience with the real estate market here, and was able to help us strategize a good offer-price, so that there would be no counter offers or bidding wars.  She is also really competent, fast and efficient and gets things done quickly (like when dealing with the various contingencies on time and negotiating with the stubborn sellers etc.).  Sara is also really nice and personable, and I continue to seek out her advice about home-related things even after the closing.  Overall, Sara really held our hands and made our first home-buying less stressful and more pleasant.  I would definitely go back to her if I ever wanted to buy or sell real estate again” Read More ▾

Georgette Brotherson

Seller
‟Sara was definitely the right agent for the job. Sara worked with my mom and myself to sell her home in the San Fernando Valley. From the beginning she was professional and responsive. She did a great job with Marketing and got a big turn out for the first weekend open house. We ended up only having to do that first open house weekend. We received multiple offers and closed escrow on time. I definitely recommend Sara she is a seasoned real estate agent who will get the job done” Read More ▾

Rico Green

Buyer
‟This is our second time around buying a house.. And I really wish we had Sara Demsky for the first. She's straight up with you and will make sure your dream is reached.. She go's above and beyond to make sure you understand everything that's going on in the process. Thx Again Demsky Realty!!”

Sean Passan

Buyer/Seller
‟This is my first time reviewing a person (in a sense) and I'm going out of my comfort zone here in the off chance that I could help you find an amazing real estate agent. Sara is likable and has a great sense of humor but more importantly she is an amazing agent. She's organized, punctual, and tries to anticipate problems down the road. I say this as someone who has purchased a home and sold a home with Sara. We have also recommended her to dozens of people who have purchased/sold homes with her. I have heard nothing but positive reviews of Sara. If you're still debating whether or not this is the agent for you - Sara will make this process easier for you!  Let her do her job and listen to her advice. You'll thank me later.  If you don't like her. I will happily pay your closing costs. Not really, but I would if I could.” Read More ▾

Dana Ohlson

Buyer
‟Excellent and professional, Demsky Realty was very proactive, assertive and organized in dealing with other Realtors as well as keeping us in the loop. My first home buying experience could not have gone smoother.”

Linna Wong

Buyer
‟I cannot recommend Sara enough!! She is extremely knowledgeable and definitely goes the extra mile. I lost out in bidding wars on two properties before I found Sara through a friend and we got the first house we liked!  Her response time is amazing and she is on top of every step of the process. I've recommended her to a colleague of mine and he ju st got his offer accepted. Sara is the real deal and I would absolutely use her services again and recommend her to all my friends” Read More ▾

Rachelle Thomas-Green

Buyer
‟There are two types of people; those that make simple things complex, and those that make complex things simple. Sara is the latter! She educated us throughout our homebuying process with humor and patience so there was no room for nerves AND her response time is a beast! She most definitely knows her stuff and her expertise is not limited to any o ne specific area of town. She knows it all! I would pick her 100 times over to represent me. Thanks Sara” Read More ▾

Liz Zangara

Buyer
‟Sara is amazing. We looked for almost 3 years before we found something we loved. She was so patient and always full of knowledge and information. She was always available to talk, sometimes it was a quick question and other times it was help exploring a feeling about a house that made it "not the one" for us. She is always honest and full of integ rity. In the end, she remembered the first conversation we had when I said my dream was a small bungalow by the beach....even I forgot that was what I said. We did find the perfect bungalow just a few blocks from the beach, and there was no way we could have done it without Sara” Read More ▾

Jessica B.

Buyer
‟Sara is the hardest working agent in the business! We were fortunate enough to be able to buy our dream house before selling the old one. During the selling process, our buyer needed to sell their property before they could buy our house. The wait was stressful, but not as stressful as it would have been with another agent. Sara managed the process beautifully doing the job of at least two agents to make sure we had a smooth and timely close. She was very responsive when returning phone calls and emails and quick to relay information between the various parties. Sara is a consummate professional. And like other reviewers have stated, Sara is super organized and forward thinking. She is incredibly personable with a fantastic sense of humor. She is also an agent you can trust. We were very happy with our experience working with Sara and know that you will be too” Read More ▾

Jenna Ellison

Buyer
‟Sara helped me find the perfect condo. She is extremely easy to work with and I didn't feel pressured at all. She found so many listings for us to check out and worked around my schedule. She's hardworking, reliable, knowledgeable of the area, and very friendly. I've recommended her to family and friends and they all were happy with her services as well. I highly recommend using Sara when looking to purchase a home” Read More ▾

Jeremy Chapman

Buyer
‟Sara is an amazing agent.  She helped me find an amazing house, with everything I had been looking for - a tough thing when looking for a backyard for a dog while in a budget in LA! Then, we had to juggle a host of issues from an obstinacy seller.  Her dogged tenacity and work on my behalf got us closed on time, and for a price well below what the seller intended.  My family loves our house” Read More ▾

Katie Anderson

Buyer
‟Buying your first home in LA is a very daunting task. Sara came highly recommended from friends and colleagues, her calm demeanor and vast knowledge of the LA market made her the perfect choice for me. She made sure I stayed realistic with my budget and expectations even when I got a bit carried away. We found the perfect place which we won in a bi dding war, Sara gave me the perfect tools to give me the upper hand in this process! I not only will be working with Sara again but I will be recommending her to all of my friends and colleagues!” Read More ▾

Adrian Fuller

Seller
‟My sister had lived in her house for over 30 years and her husband had recently passed away. Without her husband to guide her she needed special hand holding throughout the listing and selling process. Sara explained all aspects of the process in an understandable manner. Sara went far beyond the call of duty in providing guidance with everything f rom packing, storage, staging, and of course the selling itself and in reviewing multiple offers. Sara is a seasoned pro that will guide you through the whole process and get the highest value out of your house.  Highly recommended” Read More ▾

Buyer
‟We are so incredibly happy that Sara was our realtor! As first time home buyers, Sara couldn't have been more helpful, patient, and accommodating! She walked us through everything, step by step, and always made herself available to us, especially since we had SOOO many questions & concerns :) Going through Escrow was an extremely stressful time and Sara was super calming and so easy to talk to! She handled everything very professionally, efficiently, and always puts her clients first! Sara also had a lot of great recommendations for us from the inspector, contractor, and even when it came down to negotiations with the original owner, she is just an all-around knowledgeable person! We are very fortunate to have worked with Sara. Everyone should have Sara as their agent” Read More ▾

Suneal K.

Buyer
‟Sara is a great real estate agent. She was attentive and organized. We were not the highest offer on the house we bid on, but her recommendations and negotiation skills helped win us a beautiful home in Culver City. We were very lucky to have found Sara.”

Bindu S.

Buyer
‟I couldn't have asked for a better agent than Sara! Sara helped me buy my condo in West Hollywood in the summer of 2015. I was a first time home buyer trying to buy a place in a super competitive market (but isn't all of LA?), and I was nervous to say the least. Sara has a calm demeanor, which I found essential while dealing with the stress that co mes with home buying. Sara was lightning fast with her responses, and was so pleasant about answering my countless questions. Sara is willing to do whatever it takes to help the process move forward smoothly. For example, when I was out of town during an open house she went and recorded a video tour for me. I reached out to her about 6 months after my purchase with questions about my home warranty, and even then her speed and attentiveness did not waiver. Ultimately, I found the right condo for me and the entire process couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend Sara! ___ I'm a repeat customer of Sara! I recently sold my condo and bought a replacement property and received the same great service Sara is famous for. I have pretty high standards when it comes to something as important (and expensive) as purchasing property in LA and Sara always comes through” Read More ▾

Tracy B.

Buyer
‟Upon meeting Sara we knew she was the person to help us through the daunting process of buying a house! She walked us through everything, was extremely responsive and always happy to answer our endless questions!A few years after purchasing our home we decided to sell and move to a new area, so immediately contacted Sara. We bought our new house an d sold our old one within 2 months and the process was seamless. We had multiple offers on our home and I know that was partially due to the way it was presented and the advice she gave. Sara is fantastic....we're clients for life” Read More ▾

Amanda C.

Buyer
‟Sara was an amazing realtor, we really couldn't have asked for better. It was my husband and I's first time buying a property and Sara really helped walk us through everything. Something that could have felt overwhelming was more straightforward because of her. She always made herself available. I can't think of a time when she didn't answer a phon e call, text, or email within the hour, if not within a few minutes. I was blown away by her attentiveness. She also was very adaptable, quickly getting a sense for the types of places we were and were not interested in. I also think she played an important part in us actually getting our offer accepted on the condo that is now our home. She showed great skill in knowing the timing and amount to offer to give us the best chance at getting accepted. I highly recommend her” Read More ▾

Addie Z.

Buyer
‟With Sara's advice, we were able to beat out an incredible amount of competition for our new home in downtown Culver City!  She was straightforward, non-pushy, and was available all the time for texts, calls, etc. I don't think that throughout the entire house hunting process there was ever a time when she didn't pick up my phone calls or reply to my texts almost immediately.  She always made time in her schedule to accommodate a last minute trip to see a house with me. I was confident in her abilities and in this difficult market that is such an important feeling to have about your realtor. We ended up getting our dream home.  As Sara always said: if it is meant to be, it will be.  She was right!  Cannot recommend her highly enough” Read More ▾

Bryn J.

Seller
‟Sara was the property manager for my condo in Mar Vista, CA for two years before selling the property for $43K over asking in August 2016. Sara is a straight shooter, she has a calmness about her that allows you to think more clearly in high stressful situations. With ups and downs of property management she was always fair to me and to the tenants . I didn't have a worry in the world when selling the condo as I know Sara knew best and her standout character was a blessing! I'm lucky to have found her and wish I could work with her when by my house in Oakland as picking the perfect agent is very important” Read More ▾

Cara W.

Buyer
‟As a first time home buyer, I went into this entire experience absolutely clueless. I had no idea what to expect or what to do for that matter. Sara was hands down the only reason I maintained my sanity and calm manner. While I was told this process would be extremely stressful, Sara was our saving grace and prevented us from feeling overwhelmed an d confused. Not to mention, my husband and I have no family in this area and Sara made us feel like she always had our best interest at heart. I've learned that trust is the most important trait in a realtor and I am just so thankful we worked with Sara on buying our first home because I don't think I could have found someone I would have trusted more. She also was so helpful in connecting us with contractors, plumbers, inspectors, etc. you name it. She has a person for everything and saved us so much time and energy having to spend researching. I can't say enough amazing things about Sara so if you are still looking for a realtor, I would tell you to stop searching and go with her! It will be the best decision you ever make” Read More ▾

Tamara Dow

Buyer
‟I've purchased two homes with Sara -- a condo in 2011 and a house last October. I keep going back to Sara because she is responsive, knowledgeable, organized, professional, and easy to get along with. Sara knows the market and knows what it takes to put forward the best offer. She doesn't rush her clients into a decision, but once the decision is m ade she makes the closing process as painless as possible. Seller's agents have told me on numerous occasions that they would encourage their clients to accept my offer over another because of the ease of working with Sara. She is just the kind of agent you want in this competitive market. I highly recommend her for all your real estate needs” Read More ▾

Louis Romeo

Buyer
‟Sara was referred to me by one of my coworkers - and I am so glad she was! I told Sara that this will likely be a long process since, despite the fact that I knew I wanted to buy, I didn't know for what I was looking. Sara said that wouldn't be a problem, that she would take me out, show me what the market looks like and she will be there when I am ready. On the first day that she took me out, funnily enough, the first house we saw was the one I ended up bidding on and eventually buying. Sara made a typically very stressful and exhausting process a simple one for several reasons: Sara knows the market - In this incredibly competitive market with almost no inventory, Sara was able to give me her honest opinion about the properties that we saw. She never pushed me - it was all about finding the right place for me. She is very knowledgeable about the entire Los Angeles area - price trends, quality, quantity - she knows it all! Sara is unbelievably responsive - If I send her an email or text, she responds in 10 minutes or less 100% of the time. You need this. A responsive real estate agent to a buyer is like water to a fish - it's an absolute necessity. Given that homes for sale typically have multiple offers on them, the agent and buyer need to be responsive. There's no time to waste. Sara is fun, friendly and easy to get along with - Over the last month, I spoke to Sara more frequently than I spoke to my parents and friends... combined! For that reason, it's vital to work with someone with whom you get along well. Sara is very easy to talk to, warm and welcoming. This attitude helps make a scary process a little less intimidating. I am so grateful for Sara's services. I truly had a wonderful experience and now, thanks to her, I am living in a beautiful home” Read More ▾

Kam Redlawsk

Buyer
‟Demsky Realty was recommended to us by a coworker. Being as I am very research inclined we still met with a couple realtors so we could compare and have choices. While we liked all of them personally, Sara gave off the most "no nonsense" type of persona. We figured this is the best type of personality to have in your corner when either selling or b uying. While personable, she is extremely competent and capable. Very much on the ball and available to you whenever and for whatever. She is extremely organized and would get back to our texts and emails almost immediately, no matter what day or time. We found a cute place that fit all our needs and she arranged with the selling realtor to not take any counter offers (despite many prospective interested buyers) if we came in at asking price. It worked and overall the process for buying our first home went incredibly smooth. We also know for a fact that she sells many places OVER asking price. She will get you the best deal and work above and beyond. She is nice but all business when it comes to her craft so we definitely recommend her. Thanks, Sara! We love our place and will recommend you to our friends” Read More ▾

Kannika Viravan

Buyer
‟Sara helped us to buy our property almost 3 years ago. She showed us many properties and helped us to find the one that was right for us. The market was also very competitive at the time, and Sara was able to help convince the seller/seller's agent to choose us over other competitive bids. Sara was also extremely helpful during the inspection proce ss as well as helping us to secure a mortgage loan with a referral to a mortgage broker. Sara does go above and beyond and is a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend working with her - you will be in good hands” Read More ▾

Irina Tchoudovskaia

Buyer
‟Sara helped me purchase my condo back in 2011, we looked at tons of properties to find the perfect one. Now 4 years later Sara helped us move into a house. We were one of many offers since the market is so competitive right now but the sellers accepted our offer . Sara had our paperwork in such perfect order which made the seller want to work us ov er the other offers .We worked with her Lender as well which was great since everyone was in the loop and able to get things processed very quickly. Once we were all moved in to our new house Sara helped us get top dollar for our condo and we sold it for much more than I was expecting. She's a pleasure  to work with and is a great asset to have in your home buying/selling needs” Read More ▾

Daphne H.

Buyer
‟This was my first home purchase and Sara was able to answer the many questions I've had. She suggested that I do a sewer inspection. Fortunately, I followed her advice. The inspection paid for itself as we discovered that the sewer needed work.  She negotiated with the seller and for the sewer and other repairs, I received a several thousand dollar credit” Read More ▾

Ezra Hudson

Buyer/Seller
‟I must say Sara Demsky is the perfect realtor. After both BUYING and SELLING a home with her I couldn't recommend her more. She was always available to answer questions or discuss any detail big or small. I felt like she got me top dollar on the home I sold and was extremely helpful during the negotiation process on both the home I sold and the hom e I bought with her. It makes a huge difference to have a realtor who cares enough to go the extra mile in terms of signage, mailers, websites and most of all professional pictures that really sell the place, and she provided all of that. But most of all Sara really cares about her clients. She's not a realtor that will push you into a bad or mediocre deal just so she can get a commission. She's very knowledgeable about contractors and inspections so she can help you figure out the really important things to consider when buying a home” Read More ▾

Jessica Bass and Jay Ginsberg

Buyer
‟When my husband and I met Sara for the first time it felt like we had suddenly stumbled upon the best kept secret in Los Angeles real estate. We had been wandering aimlessly from open house to open house for a couple months, completely clueless about what to expect and not even sure we were ready to buy. And then, we found Sara. She turned what cou ld have been an incredibly tedious and stressful process into something exciting and fun. She is without a doubt a master at her craft, but perhaps more importantly, she understands that sometimes it all boils down to relationships. She was there for us throughout the whole process, taking on the role of both agent and friend. She answered any and every question (no matter how silly) and provided her support and guidance when we needed it most. We trust her because she earned it and deserves it. Ultimately, she helped us find our perfect first home and we couldn’t be more grateful. If you are thinking about working with her, stop thinking and do it” Read More ▾

Tania and Dietrick Miller

Buyer
‟When you mention that you are looking to buy a home, absolutely EVERYONE can recommend you a real estate agent. Though, not every recommendation is necessarily a good match for you. We got really lucky as Sara was our first recommendation and she was just perfect for us. She understood exactly what we were looking for (budget, type/size/locations o f the home) and was very determined in helping us find the perfect home. She is VERY responsive when you call, text or email. The paperwork in home purchasing is always chaotic, especially when the sellers are difficult. She handled the process like a champ! We didn't have to worry much about anything. We just expressed our concerns and she would relay the message and solve the issues, whenever possible. Our purchase process was a breeze, compared to all the horror stories that we are sure you've heard before. So, if you are looking for an agent that actually cares about her client and her job, in that order, you've found the right person! Two thumbs up for Sara” Read More ▾

Pearl Nyi

Buyer
‟I have Sara to thank for making my first home buying experience as pain free as possible. She walked me through the process step by step, eased all my fears, and answered every question I could throw her way. Sara worked hard to make my offer stand out, and even helped get it accepted over a higher bid! She was always super prompt, gave great advic e, and picked up the phone no matter what - day or night. I felt like I was in good hands and I am a very happy new homeowner” Read More ▾

Lindsay Snell

Buyer/Seller
‟If I could give more than 5 stars to Sara, I would. She was everything I wanted in a realtor. Right when I met her, I could tell that she was a true professional. She was prompt with all returned calls, emails and was always accessible. Sara exceeded my expectations in every way. There was never more than a 5 minute delay in getting back to me.  Sa ra was able to get me into properties the same day of my request- always making time in her schedule. I was always so surprised at how accommodating she was!  In addition to her amazing communication skills and sense of urgency, Sara was a great listener, always being really honest when I needed the help as a first-time buyer. She was really straight-forward and that helped a lot. I have nothing but the most positive things to say about Sara Demsky. She's an excellent realtor! ___ I just worked with Sara again to sell the home she worked with me to buy 6 years ago... Similar to my first experience with Sara, I was very impressed with her expertise in the current housing market, her recommended strategy in selling the property and her honest approach in all steps of the process. I will definitely continue to refer friends and colleagues to her and will also be working with her as I buy my next home” Read More ▾

Sarah Watson

Buyer
‟I can't thank you enough for everything all of you did to get me into my new home. You made the process so easy and stress free (well, mostly stress free). I know it took a lot of hours and hard work on your end to close this escrow. I am the happiest new homeowner in California.”

‟We were referred to Sara and were very fortunate to have her during our home searching process. She was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the marketplace and really had some great information for us as we began our search. As home buyers for the first time, we had what felt like a million questions. The best part about working with Sara wa s she answered every single question correctly and almost instantly. It was great!  She set up house appointments immediately and helped us with the negotiating, inspecting, and final walk thru stages. We can honestly say our home searching process was very easy and most, if not all, because of Sara” Read More ▾

Pete and Jamie Wright

Buyer
‟We worked very closely with Sara as this was our first home buying experience. Sara did a very good job in clearly communicating the steps involved in buying a home, and was very supportive of us during every step of the process. Once we found our new home Sara did an outstanding job making sure we were comfortable with the purchasing process every step of the way, while also making sure all deadlines were met. I would not hesitate to recommend Sara to other people embarking on the new home buying process” Read More ▾

‟Having done many real estate transactions in the past, I can appreciate a true professional. Sara, has it all. Knowledge, integrity, and care for the customer. She helped me find a great condo for my son and his friend. I am truly grateful to her.”

Fidel and Emil

Buyer
‟We recently worked with Sara in purchasing a home. She is very attentive, responsive, and easy to communicate with. Sara listened to us and understood our preferences -- she quickly learned our interests and developed a good understanding of what we like and what may interest us, and showed us relevant properties without wasting time. Her personali ty is outstanding--she is outgoing and personable, and she is very knowledgeable and up-to-date with everything and anything real estate. She is also great during the negotiation process--she guided us and made good recommendations, was very prompt in all dealings, all the while remaining honest and realistic. In the end, she helped us find and buy the perfect home, in a wonderful neighborhood we didn't even consider before Sara introduced us to it. We highly recommend Sara” Read More ▾

Barry Peterson

Buyer
‟Sara helped me and my wife with our first home purchase. She came highly recommended from friends who also used her for their first home purchase. Sara definitely lived up to the hype. She was very responsive, available, and focused on making sure we were comfortable during a very overwhelming process. I wish more people had her demeanor and commit ment to an excellent client experience. We absolutely recommend her and would use her again” Read More ▾

Michael Scher

Buyer/Seller
‟I have worked with Sara on two separate occasions. She assisted me in finding a condo for my nephew to live in, and more recently was hired as an agent to sell an investment house in Tarzana . Sara stays on top of all details and is very responsive on a timely basis. She is honest and fair and looks to give advice in a very objective manner. Bot h transactions I did had their own set of complications ( which is typical ), yet with Sara's attentiveness, both closed on schedule without a delay . I highly recommend Sara as an agent as she is ethical, competent and diligent in all her efforts” Read More ▾

Mark Giddens

Buyer
‟I was a first time home buyer and Sara was very patient with me. After sending me listings for 8 months or so I finally found a great house. Not knowing anything about buying a house Sara guided me through every step, explaining what was required and why, and answered all my random and possibly irrelevant questions! I never had to wait for a reply via txt or email either. Sara made my first home buying experience more pleasant than stressful and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house, first time or not. I would definitely ask her again for my next home purchase” Read More ▾

David Love

Buyer
‟As the crib, changing table, toys, and diaper genie, were slowly but surely taking over our two bedroom condo, my wife and decided we would need a bigger place to live. To buy a house for the first time is daunting enough, but to do it under the pressure of a ticking clock seemed damn near impossible. Luckily we called Sara Demsky, or as I like to call her, the Jack Bauer of real estate. She found us a beautiful home at a reasonable price, and while it didn't happen in 24 hours, we did have plenty of time left over to prepare the nursery. My wife and I could not be happier with our purchase, and with the entire transaction. Sara is fast, smart, efficient, and a million other positive adjectives that should persuade you to use her for your next home purchase. We know our daughter is going to love growing up in our new house, and we owe it all to Sara Demsky” Read More ▾

Jason May

Buyer
‟Sara's the best, and it's been a pleasure to work with her. My wife and I looked at properties with her for three years, made offers and entered negotiations on several, and eventually were able to quickly close on our ideal house at less than the list price!  She stuck right with us through all our negotiations, took care of setting up all necessa ry inspections/etc., and was always quick to send us whatever we needed to sign electronically, at any hour of the day.  We had worked with other agents before, but she's by far the best.  We're looking forward to our next sale or purchase with her” Read More ▾

Rebecca Baker

Buyer
‟Sara is the girl you want on your team because you know she will not stop until you have EXACTLY what you want no matter how long it takes to get it. She responds to emails within minutes even at midnight on Friday night, Thanksgiving, New Years morning, literally every time we sent her a crazy idea, she immediately responded and jumped on our requ est. We spent three years looking at houses and getting in bidding wars until we finally found the perfect gem! She stuck with us through it all. As a producer, I hire people and vendors constantly; never have I hired someone with as much diligence, competence and attention to detail as Sara. I can not think of anyone I would more highly recommend for anything. THANKS SARA!!” Read More ▾

Andy

Buyer
‟I worked with Sara for a year. I wasn't sure what I was looking for. My son and I went on numerous open houses all over town, sometimes meeting with Sara and coming back to no avail. We were looking all over and it was Sara, who told me that I belonged in the hills, and I may just be wasting my time looking at other homes. And she was right! Some 3 0 or more homes later she sent me and email and said "this looks like your type!" And it sure was. Sara has the ability to understand her clients, and she knows when not to push - just to close a deal. She is meticulous in what she does while being pleasant and charming at the same time. It was fun working with her and I'm so happy we found exactly the home I was looking for” Read More ▾

Mike and Nicole Yerkes

Buyer
‟We had been looking to move to the west coast for many years and Sara remained patient as we looked at many different areas over this time frame. Once it came time to select an area and a new home for our family, Sara was able to introduce us to many options that fit our family lifestyle.  We found an amazing home and Sara made the transaction and relocation so simple with her attention to detail and willingness to take care of everything. We look forward to working with her again if a move does develop in the future” Read More ▾

Jean and David Horwatt

Buyer
‟It was a pleasure working with Sara. She listened carefully to what we wanted and showed us real estate that fit our requirements. In our previous experience with agents, we usually were the ones who found the places we were interested in, but Sara was proactive in finding places that interested us and the place we purchased. She was efficient, pun ctual, always did the due diligence work, and was on top of the situation. We didn’t have to remind her or write her, as we had to do with previous agents. Sara is an outstanding real estate agent whom we’d work with again and whom we recommend highly” Read More ▾

Tom Manassero

Buyer
‟After the passing of my parents, 5 surviving siblings were left to settle their estate and move on in life. Sara made that experience as painless as can be expected. With her creative sales philosophy for the existing real estate market, she "wowed" us all, getting $60,000 more than the original asking price. May I say that she did this with profes sionalism and finesse. This lady really knows her business and you couldn't ask for more in a real estate professional. I wish I had a dozen more homes for her to sell for us. A true GEM! Thanks Sara” Read More ▾

Steve Chang MD PhD and Patricia Weng

Buyer
‟My wife, son and I moved from the East Coast and had a very limited amount of time to look for a home. We decided on a terrific school district in Santa Monica, and despite the tight housing market, Sara was able to help us find our new SoCal home. We did not find anything during our initial visit, but with her perseverance and the magic of technol ogy, we found a nice property near the beach and near a great school” Read More ▾

Tracy and Doug Bacal

‟Sara helped us find our first house together. We got a great deal and she helped us understand all steps in the process. She is extremely trustworthy and attentive to the needs of her clients. Sara is always open and honest and we will continue to deal with Sara in the future. Once you meet her you will be a client for life.”

Julie Holden

Buyer
‟My husband and I were prospective first-time home buyers when we met Sara at an open house. We were immediately impressed by her positive attitude and openness. We were used to being told that our expectations were too high and our budget was too low for a house, but Sara made us feel like she could make it work - and she did. Sara is very accessib le, especially over e-mail and text, which made it super easy to exchange and discuss listings even though we're both busy and on the go. She was also always more than happy to answer our millions of questions about buying our first home, and even gave us great recommendations even after we moved in. I wouldn't use anyone else for my buying or selling needs in the future” Read More ▾

‟Matt had been living in LA for a couple of years when he decided to look for a place in the Hollywood/West Hollywood area. Sara showed us a good range of properties that let us know what the market was like in the area within the price range we had in mind.  He quickly settled on a new property and we were very satisfied. Sara did a professional jo b and put Matt into a great new home.  I would recommend Sara to others moving into the area” Read More ▾

‟When we finally found the house of our dreams, it seemed like we were too late and a deal was impossible. But Sara made it happen and now the house is ours!”

Phoebe Jaeckels, OnQ Financial

Buyer
‟Sara is a realtor that has only her clients best interest at heart. As a lender, I have worked with Sara on many transactions over the years. She is very dedicated to making sure everything goes as smoothly as possible for her clients, and she is very dedicated to her business. She is a true professional and amazing to work with.”

Emily Fisher

Buyer
‟Sara was my agent starting in November 2011. After 8 months of looking and 4 offers, I finally bought my house. Throughout the entire process, Sara was helpful, available, and attentive. If I called or texted her, she would respond within a few minutes (even late at night). If she couldn't talk then, she would tell me when she'd be able to. She alw ays answered my questions and explained the process to me - as many times as I needed to hear it. Sara is also good at communicating with other agents and is not afraid to continue to contact them until she gets a response. Not only did she send me listings to review, but she took me on appointments to see houses, drove me around neighborhoods to get a feel for what I liked, and took me back to see houses I was interested in as many times as I needed. I really felt like she was on my side during the process and that she would stick with it for as long as it took for me to find the right house, which I did in July 2012” Read More ▾

Chung-Mau Cheng

Buyer
‟I first met her almost two years ago, when I was shopping for a condo for my parents. She was running an open house, and took the time to talk to us and even recommended a few other open houses for us around the area. She then offered to follow up with an email. Having met with dozens and dozens of real estate agents before and since, I can say tha t it was astonishing that she actually followed up with an email, as promised. I since worked with her for over a year while looking for the perfect condo for me and my girlfriend. I've had other real estate agents send me listings and promise to work with me, only to see them disappear after a few months. Sara stuck in there with me. She follows every lead without fail, patiently explains the process (in my case, more than a few times), and backs up her advice with careful and exhaustive research, which she excels at. She makes the home-buying process very smooth. And believe me, I've had my share of hiccups during my sale, but I had no issues with Sara or her company. I cannot say this enough. I have literally met dozens of agents in the last few years. Sara stood head and shoulder above them all” Read More ▾

‟As a first-time home buyer, I was anxious about such a big purchase. Luckily, I had Sara on my side. She was always available to answer even the smallest question, and she walked me through every step of the process with clear answers and smart advice. Whenever I see someone stressing out over buying, I am at a loss, because Sara made buying a home such a smooth, organized, and fun event” Read More ▾

Merrin Folender

‟If you are looking for a tenacious go-getter who will get you through the home-buying or selling process, Sara is your girl. One thing I appreciated was Sara's availability and quick response at all hours of the day.  Somehow she was always there for me via phone, email or text. Sara was great during the escrow process and made it a smooth transact ion as there are so many things to do and set up, she's a total pro. I highly recommend Sara if you need an agent, she's smart, friendly, professional and gets the job done” Read More ▾

Alex Scher

‟Sara helped my fiancé and I in purchasing our first condo. Her patience and persistence in finding the right place was much appreciated as our budget and pickiness did not leave many options. Sara was extremely friendly throughout the process and I would recommend her to anyone in So Cal looking for a property.”

Christopher and Jennifer Scherer

Buyer
‟I am writing this to recommend Sara Demsky as a Real Estate Agent in the Southern California Region. My wife and I worked with Sara as we bought our first home in Highland Park.  Sara was a very effective advocate for us as we navigated the home buying process. From the beginning, Sara was always readily available for all of our questions and in quiries, in contrast with other agents we had met with. She responded almost instantly to our texts, emails and phone calls and was comfortable with all the various ways in which we could discuss real estate options. Sara also worked with our schedules in setting up times for us to view to various homes and condominiums and met with us all over the region to look at properties. Sara considered our income level and found us many options for us to consider. After our first bid fell through, she remained optimistic. When we found the house we ended up buying, Sara and her army of trusted advisers made sure we were in a good position to negotiate. When we found some minor issues with the house, we were able to have the seller drop the price of the home. We are very happy with our house and have already seen prices in our neighborhood going up since we bought. All in all, our experience went as well and one could hope.  We recommend Sara Demsky as a Real Estate Agent” Read More ▾

Anita Ellias

Buyer
‟After working with Sara to buy our first home 3 years ago, the decision to approach them about listing our Condo was a no brainer. And once again, they all worked to make the process simple and comfortable, just as they had when we were buying. It is no secret that today’s real estate market is a little scary, and although we had a beautiful con do in a great location, my wife and I knew that it would take an experienced and professional team to get the value out of our home that we knew was there. We were delighted when Sara told us she would be handling our open houses due to her familiarity with the property she had helped us purchase. We have no doubt that this was a huge factor in the ease and speed of our transaction. Either the real estate gods were smiling down on us, or the hard work paid off as we had a great offer to accept after less than 2 weeks on the market. The entire process went so smoothly and the results were so good I am still not sure it has all settled in. One thing we are sure of, this is an amazing team and will go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable and happy whether buying or selling. Thank you again” Read More ▾

Brian and Jessica Yu

Buyer
‟Buying a home can be stressful but Sara helped us every step of the way.  We found the perfect house in a mere two weeks and we beat an all cash offer! The best part is how much Sara helped us with the details: loans, movers, house cleaners, etc. There was so much to do but it was so reassuring to know that we could always call Sara for help.”

Erica Gately

Buyer
‟I met Sara Demsky at an open house almost five years ago. For five years, Sara updated me with listings and helped me navigate the world of real estate as a potential new buyer. I never felt pressure from Sara or impatience despite the many years it took for me to finally get serious about buying! Finally, this past spring I was ready to buy and Sa ra helped me find the perfect condo.  The perfect home turned out to be a short sale, which in a perfect world can be highly frustrating. I cannot thank Sara enough for walking me through the short sale process, securing a submitted offer to the bank by working late into a Sunday night and holding my hand through the long waiting process. Sara did not just submit an offer for me and sit back while the bank took months to review the paperwork, but she continued to work on updates and she worked with the listing agent to ensure the bank was prioritizing my short sale offer. Sara also continued to show me similar listings in the area to ensure I continued to feel confident I had made the right choice. After 2 months of waiting, we had an accepted offer and 30 days after that I had closed on my first home! Sara could not have made a nervous first time buyer feel any better or more informed and 2 months later I continue to recommend her to everyone I know! Thank you so much Sara” Read More ▾

September Forsyth

Buyer
‟As a first time home buyer I could not have asked for a more patient, professional, well informed real estate agent than Sara. Her patience never waned as I waffled between a condo, then a house, then a condo and back to a house. From the westside, to the valley...she stayed the course and helped find the perfect house for me.  She gave me the info rmation I needed throughout the process, had the answers to any and all of my questions, was organized and very personable. Escrow was a breeze.  When the day comes for me to sell my home I will only be calling Sara” Read More ▾

‟Sara guided me through the entire purchasing process, from loan pre-qualification to searching for a house, to making the offer and closing the deal. I credit Sara with a smooth home-buying experience. This is my first home and I had many questions, reservations, and neurotic tendencies about making this kind of commitment. But, Sara is extremely p ersonable, understanding, savvy, and I never could have realized my dream of being a homeowner without her. To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Sara and her expertise, and I recommend her to everyone” Read More ▾

Trevin Phillips

Buyer
‟Being first time home buyers, especially in today’s market, was a bit overwhelming. We started our search using online resources, but when the time came to start making offers we realized the value of working with a professional. We met Sara at an open house and she quickly became integral to our search for a new home. She was the first agent we me t who offered to set us up with daily updates of all properties in the areas and price ranges we were interested in. We very much appreciated Sara’s approach to sales, she was not pushy and focused on being a resource for us to use at our own pace. Sara was very quick to respond to all of our questions, as well as setting up appointments to see properties when our schedules permitted (nights/weekends). Sara and her partners have a refreshing approach to sales. We always felt in control of the home buying process, while being guided through the important decisions and always having the final say. We never felt pressured to make decisions or rearrange our priorities during our search. Additionally, Sara offered valuable opinions on the local market and comparisons of certain locations and properties. We are very happy with the service and the outcome of working with Sara. Given the opportunity we wouldn’t think twice to work with Sara again” Read More ▾

Faye Walker

Buyer
‟Sara has been our real-estate agent for the past year and has been instrumental in helping us acquire a wonderful home for our family during a very difficult time in my life. After having a baby last year, our home is literally bursting at the seams.  We found a new home we loved in our neighborhood in August of 2009 that was in short sale. This pr ocess was not at all SHORT, or easy for that matter, but Sara has diligently helped us through this very arduous sale to where we are now about to close on our dream house. Please let me know if you have any questions. Sara has been a joy to work with and I highly recommend her services as an agent” Read More ▾

Krystal Ziv

Buyer
‟Sara is great! She recently helped me buy an investment property, and I have already passed her info on to a few of my friends and coworkers. Sara is very quick at responding to phone calls and emails, which I appreciated. I looked for a LONG time before finding the perfect place, and I never felt pressure from Sara to buy - she was very patient an d assured me that I should be excited about a place before placing an offer. When I finally did put in a bid, we were in a situation where there were other offers, but Sara advised me on how much she thought would be appropriate and how to make my bid look best, and they ended up picking my offer!  Sara had contacts for a termite guy, a general inspector, an electrician, a plumber, and a contractor that I used to get repairs estimates and even get some cash back from the seller. The process was all very smooth. I definitely don't think you can go wrong using Sara as your realtor - my experience was fab.” Read More ▾
