Sold a Vacant Land home in 2017 for approximately $300K in Birmingham, MI.

“Sara is wonderful! I highly recommend her for a positive, successful experience. My mother, brother, and I all worked with Sara to sell my mother's home in Birmingham. It sold, and we closed last week! It wasn't an easy situation due to my elderly mother's anxiety, a leak at the house that required a time out, and several people to satisfy on our (the seller's) side. Sara was consistently helpful and positive. I'm so glad we had her to guide and support us toward a sale. She and her top-notch team walked us through every step including the closing and made it all as easy as it could be. Sara's knowledge of the Birmingham area is very impressive too!”

Sold a home in 2017 in Bloomfield Hills, MI 48301.

“We loved working with Sara. She is a seasoned pro. She’s an expert in the Birmingham/Bloomfield market. She knows the Bloomfield Village like no other. You really learn how good your realtor is when your house doesn’t sell itself the first couple of weeks on the market. What then? That’s when your realtor really has to get to work and SELL your house, do the marketing and the research, over and over again, week after week, month after month. Sara has her finger on the pulse of the market, continuously studying the market, making course corrections, changing marketing efforts, etc. A knee jerk reaction to a home not selling is to reduce the price, over and over until it sells. Because of Sara’s continuously updated market data, she knew when to reduce, and when to stay the course. She’s a skilled negotiator, with a sense of fair play. She’s always available to talk, returns calls quickly, and is friendly and professional. We felt very blessed to have Sara on our side, doing her best for us from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone who’s thinking of buying or selling a house.”

Bought a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $150K in Southfield, MI.

“Sara and her team were absolutely fantastic. My house had multiple offers and was off the market in just two days. She moved very quickly and did a wonderful job negotiating the deal. I just could not believe that despite all the interest in such a short time, I actually got the house and stayed under my budget. I am 100 per cent positive that if Sara was not my realtor, I would not have my house! On top of that, she is a genuinely nice person. She was very responsive, knowledgeable and patient (I can be very particular AND I was a first time home buyer). I can’t say enough great things about Sara. I would VERY HIGHLY recommend her!”

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

“After several years of listing our home with other agents -- but having no success -- we decided to give it one last try and listed our home with Sara Lipnitz. We had heard rave reviews about Sara from others with whom she had worked, so we were reluctantly optimistic. We need not have worried. From the minute we met with Sara it was easy to see why she is so successful. Sara's energy and knowledge were apparent, and she used those traits to ensure that the selling process was a positive one for us. Sara's ability to network with other agents should not be undervalued -- it was key to getting our house sold. At the broker's open, between 30 and 40 agents attended, leading to almost 40 showings in the first 3 days of our house being listed. The difference in this experience from the former times we had listed our home was night and day. Because our house was marketed so well by a professional of Sara's caliber, our house was sold in 4 days. We also used Sara to purchase our new home and the experience buying was just as pleasant and stress-free (as stress-free buying a house can be!) as selling. Sara and her team were extremely attentive and informative every step of the way and helped us to negotiate a great price on the house of our dreams. I would not hesitate to recommend Sara Lipnitz to anyone. Her energy, knowledge, and positive relationships with other agents all are factors that contribute to not only her success -- but also to the success of the clients with whom she works.”

“Sara came highly recommended from a friend. When searching for our first home, she was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and patient. She went above and beyond, and was always available to discuss any questions we had (even at 11 o'clock at night:) When we decide to sell our current house, we will definitely be using her again!”

“Sara is very professional, respectful and thoughtful. She has great attention to detail. I always knew where we were in the process of the listing, offer stage and the closing. She managed multiple offers in a manner that resulted in a sale above list and I thought the analysis we went through to arrive at list was very appropriate. I believe this was a smaller dollar transaction than Sara's typical transaction and the service was excellent.”

“Whenever anyone asks about our experience when buying our house, I always tell them that we would not have the house we do without Sara. She guided us through a very long and tricky negotiation process when trying to purchase our home from a challenging seller. I was ready to give up and walk away from the deal several times, however she was able to talk me through the ordeal and comfort me when I was at my breaking point. Sara acted as our realtor, marriage counselor and therapist. Sara also helped us sell our other home and she somehow managed to align the timing of the closings and possession dates perfectly!”

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Beverly Hills, MI.

“I honestly can’t say enough good things about Sara! We completely lucked out when her name landed in our laps. Since we were new to the area and unsure where to buy, Sara was super patient with us and conducted “community tours” with us to help us better understand the options. She’s so knowledgeable—and funny, too. We had a blast! In the end, it was her industry connections that got us into see a house the night before it listed. So we were able to get a beautiful home in our price range in the perfect neighborhood. In fact, we’ve had multiple people remark that they’ve tried to get into our neighborhood for years without any luck. They should have called Sara!”

“Sara is amazing. My husband and I worked with her and she was extremely kind and patient with us as we looked at many different houses. When walking through homes, I really appreciated her honesty in sharing with us her concerns about the houses as well as the benefits to each one. She helped us to find the perfect house for us and graciously helped us through the process of buying it! I'm positive that if we choose to move again someday, we will be working with Sara to sell our home and find a new one.”

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Birmingham, MI.

“My husband and I have worked with Sara on a couple of real estate transactions. We choose her back in 2008 to help sell our house when we were transferred out of state. It was probably the worst time in real estate history to sell a house so we looked around for who was selling the most houses in our neighborhood and we contacted her. She came in prepared and was upfront and honest about the state of the housing market. She did a great job marketing our home and keeping in contact with us through out the entire process. So when we came back a couple of years later, Sara was our first call. She is so well connected here, always on top of what was on the market and coming to market. She knows and understands the complex Birmingham real estate market and knows the story behind just about every house out there. She was able to help us find exactly what we wanted. Sara is extremely knowledgeable about the market, trustworthy, works hard and is a pleasure to work with.”

“Sara has served us as both our buyer's agent as well as seller's. She demonstrates true professionalism in her style and RESULTS. In an industry that is complicated and ever-changing, Sara manages to stay on top of it all and keep her clients calm and trusting. When my family and I moved across state we struggled to find an agent who could meet our needs the way Sara consistently has. Her array of honors and accolades represents only a glimpse in to her dedication and innovation.”

“Sara was amazing. We met on a Friday and by Monday the listing was up and we already had 3 showings. She knew the Birmingham area so well and was very personable. From the moment i met her i know she would be working in my best interest. We reviewed the current pending sales in the area and compared their features vs my property and came to an agreed upon sales price based on my needs and her experience in the market. She was spot on in all her recommendations and her responsiveness via phone/text was amazing. We got several offers the first week and she guided me in the best direction possible. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Her experience and relationships in the real estate community are great; and she always works in the best interest of her clients!”

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.0M in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

“Sara helped us with our transfer from Chicago to Bloomfield Hills. She was recommended to us by a friend, and began our search for a home with a complete tour of the area. We would drive up on the weekends to look at homes and neighborhoods, and always felt we were her only client. Sara's goal wasn't to sell us a house, but to find the right home for us. Sometimes she would talk us out of a home knowing it wouldn't be a good fit. In the end, after showing us dozens and dozens of homes, after a span of over a year, we found our perfect home. It was worth the wait. The closing process wasn't stressful at all. I always knew Sara had our best interest and is one of the more experienced and knowledgable agents in the area.”

“I don't know what we would have done without Sara! I have purchased 2 houses from her and she is amazing! Our second house...when we were walking in for our viewing another agent was walking out. When he found out that we were with Sara, he looked at his couple that he was with and told them that he hoped they did not want this house because if the family Sara was with (us) wanted it...they would get it. It is one of my favorite stories to tell about our home because it shows how much she advocates for her clients. She made sure we were treated fairly and she is highly respected in the real estate market. Please note, the year of service listed is the last home we purchased from her, but we have used her to buy and sell homes since 2003.”

Helped me rent a home in Birmingham, AL.

“Sara was our realtor when we moved from the Southeast, and needed to quickly find a rental. Not only was she very competent and responsive, she went out of her way to help familiarize us with Birmingham and the Detroit metro area. We eventually moved to the DC area, but returned to Birmingham two years later. We were so pleased with Sara's level of service and overall knowledge, we made contact with her as soon as we know we were moving. With Sara's help, we were able to find and move into a home within days. Sara is simply the best.”
