A Thank You to Our Clients
We know the real estate process can be challenging; that's why our entire team is dedicated to real estate and to our clients full-time. We love what we do and want to make your journey of transition joyful and rewarding. Thank you all for honoring the Sarah Bernard Realty Team with the privilege of helping you sell and buy your homes and be a part of such an important life decision.
LOVE LOVE Julie! Totally responsive and professional. Sarah Bernard is a friend of mine, but working with Julie is the equivalent of working with Sarah, and that can be hard to accomplish for any business. Bravo to Sarah Bernard Realty team!
I hardly know where to start to convey how completely wonderful my experience was with Sarah Bernard, start to finish. I couldn’t have asked for a better working relationship. Her judgement was always spot on and I felt comfortable relying on her instincts and guidance. She was proactive, thorough, quick to respond to any needs or requests and let nothing fell through the cracks. It made the process of selling my home a joy. I first met Sarah when she walked through the door with her decorator. I was braced for a pitch to stage my home at considerable expense, as had been my experience from a prior attempt to sell. Instead, sensing my hesitation, the two of them took off their shoes, got to work, and in fairly short order, using what I had and moving a few things around, made the home look fresh and inviting. For me, it demonstrated a genuine willingness to listen to the client and do whatever she could to meet the need. When a complication arose at closing (due to a lien place by my former spouse years before) and the buyer’s title company insisted on withholding a portion of the sale proceeds, Sarah treated me as a valued client until the funds were released two and a half years later. That enduring commitment to her clients says everything about Sarah and the way she does business. For her, the focus is on service, not the deal. It’s why I would use Sarah again and am more than happy to recommend her to others.
Amy Berra found the types of houses we asked for, in the requested locations, arrived on time to showings and was quick to respond to changes and requests. She kept a friendly demeanor and answered all questions asked. I would certainly recommend her.
5 stars for Jamie! She was so patient, kind, flexible, and willing to give when we needed her during our new home search! Always ready to accommodate our ever changing wish list and location desires, Jamie really helped guide us and encourage us to keep looking because the right house was out there. And it was! We knew once we stepped into our new house that it was the one. And Jamie knew as well. Thank you, Jamie, for all your work and time helping us find our next home!
Sarah and her team were all very professional and effective. They sold our home in less than the average number of days on market for our area and at a solid number. Very pleased with their overall performance!
Jaime and the entire Sarah Bernard Realty team did a phenomenal job on our second home transaction. From start to finish, they were very thorough and strategic the entire time. I specifically appreciated the binder they provided us at close with all of the pertinent information. I would highly recommend them for any real estate needs.
Jamie was incredibly helpful and our sale went very smoothly because of all of her work. She caught a couple of things on the sale that saved us a bunch of time and money too!! Great working with her!
Selling my property while I lived in a different state was scary for me. I barely lived in St. Louis and did not know any real estate agency other than the one I used while buying the property (which was not a good option in my case). After a brief research, I found Sarah. Testimonials like the one I am writing impressed me. The actual experience was in line. I listed below the things that impressed me the most about Sarah and her team: * Commitment to client: I always received a timely response. Even when she or one of her team members were not available immediately, they replied indicating when they would get back to me and they always did. * Knowledge: All my questions were answered and there were no surprises * Attitude: Very professional and great attitude. I strongly recommend Sarah Bernard.
I am happy to recommend Sarah Bernard and her Staff to be your real estate source for any purchase or sale. They are very professional and knowledgeable in all of your potential needs. They can answer all your questions and walk you through any potential pitfalls making you real estate needs a snap.
Jamie was the best. She was helpful and patient and guided us through the process from beginning to closing and beyond. She answered all of my questions and went out of her way to help us in every way. I would highly recommend Jamie and the entire support team at Sarah Bernard Realty!
I have used Sarah Bernard and her team to purchase two homes and to sell one. She was great every step of the way. Very responsive and experienced. Moving can be a very tedious process, but it was made so much easier because of Sarah!
My experience with Sarah Bernard was a positive one. She was always encouraging about the sale of my lot and kept me informed about the overall market. I enjoyed working with her and people in her office.
Jamie is a wonderful realtor to work with! She went above and beyond, helping answer every question we had and working with us to get quotes for repairs even before closing.
My experience with Red Key was excellent. In selling our 100 year old home, Sarah and her team handled everything–even the inevitable challenges–with ease, getting us the best deal possible.
Sarah was incredibly helpful, thorough and her professional approach made this process the best realty experience ever!
Sarah is excellent. She returns calls right away. She provides realistic feedback and goes the extra mile to help sell your property.
Jamie was absolutely amazing to work with. I didn’t expect anything less from her, but she made the entire process so smooth. She earned our outright complete trust (especially my husband’s) when we were going to put an offer on a house that we were excited about but she confirmed the price was way too high (it still is on the market with price drops every weekend!). We then choose a dream house scenario and Jamie and her team made the entire process so smooth with zero glitches from the offer to advice on what to include for inspection, etc. But the back end detailed work and proving how knowledgeable she is with lots of experience in her belt, allowed us, as the client, to not get too overwhelmed or nervous throughout the entire process. It really made the entire experience actually enjoyable. We are so happy we made this decision and made the jump to purchase our dream house – and Jamie was there every step of the way we wouldn’t want to go anywhere else and highly recommend Jamie! Thank you!
Jamie was amazing to work with on my recent house purchase. She was very thorough, knowledgeable and responsive to my communication and questions. I would definitely use her again.
Jamie Gilman was absolutely amazing! She was very easy to work with and always very positive. She worked long and hard hours to find me my perfect first home! I’m very grateful that I had her as my agent!
Sarah was great! She worked hard and never gave up, or let us give up, on selling our difficult to sell property. In the end we got an excellent price. We can’t recommend her highly enough.
I can’t say enough about our experience with Sarah and her team. We were overwhelmed by the thought of selling our home and Sarah made it possible. She immediately put us at ease and our home sold within 2 days of going on the market. She is truly an expert in the field and all of her suggestions were spot-on. We couldn’t be more pleased and are so grateful to her and her team for a seamless process.
Jamie did a great job helping us make and close an offer on a condo. She was very responsive and helpful throughout the process. We definitely recommend Jamie and her team!
Jamie helped us find an awesome home. She was always kind and patient. We were house hunting in the beginning days of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a stressful time that Jamie handled with grace. We were blessed to work with her.
We had a great experience working with Sarah and her team. They were professional and attentive. Sarah helped us decide what to update and fix, and what not to. We had a visit within three hours of listing, and the offer we accepted first thing the next morning.
My husband and I highly recommend Sarah Bernard and her team for their professionalism in taking care of our home sale. They were prompt in taking care of all of our needs during the sales process. Whether it be questions about the process or referrals for repairs they were on the ball. We chose Sarah for her knowledge of the Innsbrook market as well as the St. Louis market. The reason she has a stellar reputation was proven with us. Thank you, Sarah and team!
Sarah Bernard and Jamie Gilman were a pleasure to work with!
Given the pandemic and going through the home buying process while living out of state, we expected it to be a stressful, overwhelming adventure. Jamie, however, was so helpful and accommodating, I’m a little in awe of how smoothly it went. We were so grateful for her expertise and support throughout the entire process. We truly loved working with Jamie and are so glad she was able to help us find our first home.
Wonderful experience . So nice working with such an orderly intelligent individual. She doesn’t miss a beat and is extremely responsive. Wish we could clone….
Jamie was very professional, as well as very personable through the house buying process from beginning to end. She went above and beyond our expectations as far as communications, appointment flexibility and meeting locations. We were very thankful to work with Jamie during this exciting and sometimes stressful process.
After having our Innsbrook property on the market for 18 months with another realtor, we switched to Sarah–and what a difference! She was “on it” from the get-go, and with fresh new pictures and magic advertising, the property sold at asking price on the first day it was officially on the market! Sarah was professional and very pleasant to work with, and her office team kept me both informed and on-track. We no longer live in the area, but if we did, and if we needed to buy or sell property, Sarah would be my first call!
Sarah Bernard is a very knowledgeable real estate professional. We relied on her expertise when choosing a property to purchase at Innsbrook because we had limited knowledge of that area. When it came time to sell our property we relied again on Sarah’s accurate recommendations for that process. She and her team of dedicated professionals were a tremendous help to bring both transactions to a successful close. Everyone, including Sarah, was willing to quickly respond to any questions that you might have during the process. After the sale of our property concluded Sarah made you feel as if you were part of the Red Key “family” and offered the same consideration and professionalism for future real estate needs. In our case we have the distinct pleasure of considering Sarah a good friend, as well as other team members. We can’t imagine working with anyone else or any other company for our real estate needs. She deserves a million stars for her rating!!!
Sarah and team. Thank you for making this transaction as smooth as possible considering the challenges from the buyer and his agent. It was great working with you.
Jamie was so helpful and understanding. She made buying my first home so easy and fun!”
Everything was professionally handled. Difficult conversations were made easy. Very good experience and would recommend Sarah as a great agent to buy or sell your house.
Sarah Bernard did an exceptional job with promoting our property and keeping us informed regarding all showings, prospecting for buyers, and details related to the selling process. Excellent brochures! Will definitely recommend her to any friends wishing to purchase or sell a property.
It has been my pleasure to work with all the Sarah Bernard staff. From day one meeting with Sarah, each has done their best to take care of the sale of my property giving me the peace of mind that real professionals are in charge.
Jenny was wonderful. She was patient and helpful. It took us many years to find the right vacation home and we appreciated her guidance and expertise. Thank you!
Jenny was thorough, responsive and caring. She was easy to talk to regarding our concerns and always willing to go the extra mile. After working so closely with her I now consider her not only a wonderful real estate agent but a friend.
Jennifer was a joy to work with. From our first meeting with her she listened to us and began to learn about us so she could help us find a home we could love. Jennifer is very conscientious and patient. She gave us her time to look at houses as we were deciding on an area and type of house. I highly recommend Jennifer!
We can’t say enough good things about Jennifer. She made the home buying process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. We loved getting to spend time with her as we looked for homes, and really valued her input and observations about the homes we explored. She helped us navigate the closing process, even making it possible to close ahead of schedule. We were in good hands every step of the way. I would 100% recommend her again.
Without reservation we can recommend Sarah Bernard when selling a property. Her marketing background shows through when devising a plan for the sale of your property. All of her suggestions for painting and staging paid off with showings and offers. Her team was able to accomplish updates in an expeditious manner. Sarah was always very responsive to any questions we had. We felt very comfortable with her and her team, which was imperative as we were 5000 miles away.
Jamie was very patient and friendly with us, she helped us looking for a house for more than two years. Never complained in any way. In the future I would definitely go with her. Thanks Jamie
Sarah has great communication skills & kept me informed of all activity in my area. She was very supportive and professional.
Sarah always does a great job. This is the third time we worked together on a real estate transaction and I always have the best experience. She is professional, eager to help, and great when it to comes to negotiating. I will recommend her to all my friends and family!”
Sarah was always very responsive to questions and went out of her way to be helpful to me. i would recommend her highly.
Jamie was fantastic. Always available and helpful.
Jamie and Sarah’s team went above and beyond to make our search and purchase exceptional. Jamie took the time to really understand our goals and helped us find the best property matches. We could not be more pleased with our experience and highly recommend working with them.
I cannot imagine a nicer, more competent, more willing-to-go-the-extra mile, real estate agent than Jamie Gilman. Nothing phases her and she is always problem-solving, working on her customer’s behalf. Jamie helped our family find the perfect condo for a long-distance move from the NYC area. The buying process had a number of twists and turns and took longer than expected (mainly due to the sale of our NY house). Nonetheless, she patiently held our hand, explored various solutions, and guided us through to the closing date. Always at the top of her game, Jamie expresses a buoyancy that makes working with her fun. Plus, her communication skills are outstanding. Either by phone, email, or text she continually keeps in touch. She makes you feel like you are her only client (I highly doubt it) and the most important thing going on in her life (ha!). And she is still helping us. . .with finding contractors, a handyman, and many of the other details involved in settling into a new home from far way. Hats off to Jamie!
Jamie was wonderful to work with. She was always 100% pleasant and professional under a rather challenging close process. She responded to emails and texts quickly and was never too busy to answer questions — and if she didn’t know the answer, she researched and got back to us . . . usually within hours. Also want to mention that Jamie was very patient and accommodating in helping us purchase our condo long-distance and went out of her way to make sure we could see and understand all the physical details of the house. We would recommend Jamie to anyone!
Loved working with Jennifer Bickel. Always got all my questions answered pronto. She took all the stress out the transactions. I would for sure recommend her in the future. Thank you Jennifer
We love Jenny! She was so easy to work with and addressed all of our questions and concerns in a timely fashion. The entire process was smooth and low stress. We highly recommend her!!!
Had a wonderful experience with Sarah Bernard and her office group. She was so helpful in selling my home at Innsbrook and Jennifer Bickle for my purchase of my home in Winghaven. If you are looking for a realtor please call Sarah at Red Key Realtor.
Sarah & her staff kept me informed of activity on my property and those in close proximity as well. It was a pleasure having them represent me.
Jamie was fantastic to work with! My fiancé and I asked to see many houses and Jamie was always there to make it work. She was so helpful in negotiating contracts and gave us the best advice which lead us to our home! We are so so happy that we worked with Jamie to find the house of our dreams!
I would strongly recommend Sarah and her team to sell your home. They provided a good balance of professionalism and personal support throughout the process, which took longer than expected in my case. They offered good recommendations for contractors to do needed repairs/updates and followed up with those contractors to make things easier for me. They consistently responded in a timely fashion when I made contact by phone, e-mail, or text. When there were bumps in the road, Sarah worked with me in a calm, reassuring manner, which was much appreciated. I always felt like she was on top of the situation with our house and gave it the attention needed, despite her busy schedule.
Sarah was fantastic to work with. She was very communicative and thoughtful in all of our interactions. She knows the market very well and demonstrated her expertise by putting us in the best position to sell our house quickly and at a great price. Her recommendations were spot on. We were very pleased with the entire process. I can’t imagine the process going any smoother. I highly recommend!
Sarah and her team make you feel like you are their most important client. For first-time house sellers, Sarah patiently answered questions and addressed all our concerns. Her marketing skills are so valuable. Our neighbors appreciated the thoughtful communication she provided them as well. I would recommend Sarah and her team to all my friends and family.
Sarah is an amazing person! Sarah and her team helped my fiancé and I sell our home and then find our dream home. Sarah was always there for advice and we trusted her with her opinion. I’m so glad we went through Sarah and her team!
Steve & Sara Huggins
Sarah Bernard did a great job with the sale of our Innsbrook Property. It would not have happened without her hard work.
Doug & Hope Kraus
Sarah and her team were wonderfully supportive in a difficult sale. They help us through problems, that they did not cause.
PHYLLIS K, SELLER
Sarah was very organized, understanding, helpful, compassionate. She responded quickly to concerns that I had and offered solutions. Selling my house was an excellent experience with Sarah!
MARY LEE M., BUYER
Jamie made searching for a property a very positive experience. She is very professional, an excellent communicator and always responded to my questions in a prompt manner. She was generous with her time when offering to conduct a tour on the weekend via SKYPE. She is very easy to talk to, understands all of the concerns you have when considering buying a property. Since we were out of town buyers, she offered information which was very helpful in understanding aspects of a different locale. She also offered to assist in whatever way she could AFTER the transaction closed. We did find a property to purchase and this transaction was one of the best we’ve ever been through, thanks to the outstanding service we received from Jamie Gilman as our representative. THUMBS UP AND FIVE STARS!!
CHAD B., BUYER
Jamie was great. She’s very knowledgeable and understands the current market. She kept in constant contact with us via text, phone and email. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate!
PAUL D, BUYER
We haves moved and bought and sold many residents in the last 45 years. Our experience with Jamie was truly an excellent experience. She listened to what we our needs were and was relentless in searching the target market for us. She was very accommodating with our schedule while keeping us informed on every step of the search and process.
SUZANNE V., BUYER
We LOVE Jamie! Seriously, cannot say enough about her. She’s absolutely perfect for this job. She’s professional at all times; she’s reliable, prompt, and always happy and positive. And she never makes you feel like you’re a bother! I think that’s very rare in realtors. If Jamie ever wants a job change, I will hire her!
PHYLLIS K, BUYER
Very nice to be with, very cooperative, very attentive, very helpful!
TOM & CAROL C, SELLER
We have known Sarah for several years. She is always very professional, easily accessible whenever we reached out to her for help and advice. She also has a calming manner when a client becomes overwhelmed! Sarah is a great resource person for handyman repairs, or any help needed to prepare your home for sale. We would highly recommend Sarah and her team for any real estate needs.
EDWARD & GERMAIN C, BUYER
Jamie worked with us closely on our house. We changed our minds several times but she was always able to help with options. After we found our house, she helped us through the process very well and made it very seamless. I highly recommend Jamie to anyone thinking of buying a house!
ELLEN R., SELLER
Sarah has been an outstanding agent and guide as we navigated the sale of a unique home at Innsbrook. We were able to find not one, but two buyers on an open house weekend, and sell our property for well over the average price of chalets on our lake. Sarah had an excellent marketing plan and promoted our home across all platforms and media. She communicated regularly, always listened and promptly replied to our questions. We couldn’t be happier with the selection of Sarah her professional Red Key team to sell our home. Five Stars!
ANNE W, SELLER
I could not have asked for an agent to pursue the sale of my house with more expertise and determination. She gave me sound advice, was always available to answer my questions, and sold my house within a reasonable length of time. Sarah and her team always treated me with kindness and professionalism.
PAUL & DEON H., SELLER
My mother interviewed two realtors to sell her chalet at Innsbrook, and clearly The Red Key Sarah Bernard Team was selected by significant margins! Sarah’s path to sale was well planned and executed. Every detail from planning, to staging and marketing made the process seamless. Sarah is a true professional and we cannot say enough about her rapport and level of service during the process. The entire team was very well organized even down to the limo ride on the day of the closing. It was like we had a combination of personal assistants and concierge! We would recommend Sarah for everyone’s real estate needs.
LAURA S., BUYER
Ed was a great help identifying properties that met our family’s needs, and ultimately helping us close on a great vacation home. He was knowledgeable but not overbearing and very accommodating of our family’s needs and schedule. I would not hesitate to use him again.
SUZANNE V., SELLER
Sarah is the BEST! Don’t call anyone else if you want what feels like undivided attention, attention to detail and, most importantly, results.
JENEANE M., BUYER
Jamie was fantastic to work with! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home!
RACHEL V., BUYER
Ed Kidd was amazing and such a pleasure to work with!!
J. TOWNSON, BUYER
Nichole takes her relationship with you as your realtor very seriously and she works hard for your business. She is extremely knowledgeable about a wide variety of things when it comes to looking for and buying a home..and many other helpful things outside of home buying as well! She will not waste your time and will always be honest! She listened to me when it came to what I was looking for in a home and did not show me homes that I was not interested in. I was impressed with how quickly she helped me find a place that fit my needs/wants and moved through the process of buying my first home. It went as smooth as milk chocolate and I felt confident in her judgment and negotiation skills. I began looking for a home in January/February and closed on my beautiful home May 23rd. She was responsive and kept all lines of communication open with the team and myself. If she didn’t know something she was on the phone right away to get an answer. She was always available as well as the team we worked with. If I had questions they were right there with answers. She will definitely represent you and handle all issues professionally. I would recommend her to anyone I know who is new to the process and/or is selling a property.
JASON CUTTER, TRANSCEND CABINETRY & DESIGN, SELLER
I have had the privilege to work with Sarah on several buying experiences. Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. Upon starting this process we new going into this building process that the house we were building and designing was going to be a spec house. As a sellers agent Sarah again exceeded my expectations. She provided continual advise as well as came to several meetings to give feedback on design and materials that were being considered for the house. Sarah is an expert in the Innsbrook vacation real estate market. Her commitment to relationships with fellow agents, owners and buyers sets her clients up for success. It has been a pleasure working with Red Key especially Sarah.
LAURA F, SELLER
The experiences in selling two properties through Sarah were good learning experiences. Selling property is not something we do everyday, so it was wonderful to be able to rely on creative, hard-working professionals like Sarah Bernard and her team.
LYNDA S., SELLER
I had an outstanding experience with Sarah Bernard and her team at Red Key. They were responsive, knowledgeable, proactive and thorough. I would call upon them again to sell a home.
HEIDI R., BUYER
It was a pleasure working with Jamie. She was dedicated to the process, resourceful, punctual, and incredibly helpful walking us through the process step-by-step as first time home owners. Jamie was diligent in keeping us on track with deadlines and on paperwork and inspections. She made the entire process seemless and was a delight. If we ever had any questions, she got us the answer, if not immediately, with in the same day. We felt she was looking out for our best interest throughout the duration of the process and appreciated her thoughtful insights. I would recommend Jamie to any future home buyer.
B. FLOREK, BUYER
Our experience with Jamie was delightful. She answered all of our questions and provided precise information. She worked well with our lender and made the buying process easy. We would recommend Jamie to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.
T. SMITH, SELLER
We purchased a secondary residence in 2014 where Sarah was the agent for the seller. She acted as a agent for both the seller and us in the sale. We were extremely pleased with her professionalism and knowledge of the business as well as her ability to offer expertise while remaining neutral to both parties. We were so impressed with her that we listed our other secondary residence with her knowing that the property was in a difficult market where property moves slowly. She has gone so many extra steps that have made the process easy and successful. With these two sales now behind us we would use her again and recommend her to anyone needing a true professional that is a delight to work with. Here we are 4 years later and we called on Sarah to sell our secondary residence. A long and wonderful story short. She sold the property while we were still preparing it for sale! Again, we can’t possibly say enough about her knowledge of the market, sweet demeanor, and professionalism. She and her team are outstanding in every respect. She has a unique talent for being the right person to bring the right buyers and sellers together for a Win, WIN, WIN!
ANDREA & TIM C., SELLER
If you are looking for fair and honest representation in selling your property at Innsbrook, but don’t want to use the Innsbrook sales office, Sarah Bernard is the person for you! Sarah knows Innsbrook because she has property there and she knows all the ins and outs of what it takes to get a property sold in the community. Sarah was always in touch with us and responded promptly to any and all questions. Never once did we wonder how the property was being viewed/rated as Sarah made sure we were aware of all activity and comments. Sarah and her team did such a good job with making sure our chalet showed exceptionally well that it was on the market less than a week and we had an offer and the eventual sale! We could not be happier with Sarah and would recommend her for your real estate needs.
KELLY C., BUYER
I have to say, working with Sarah was seamless. A breath of fresh air. I really got to know her with this last transaction. My family recently went through a tragedy and lost our chalet to a fire. When we called Sarah, she rallied behind us to find us a new chalet and we were closed and moved in less than a month. I always felt like Sarah was working for us even when telling my husband what he might not want to hear. We have used Sarah to buy two chalets at Innsbrook now and would recommend her to everyone we know. Needless to say, once we re-build from the fire, Sarah will be our listing agent again.
Sarah was referred to us by a friend. This was my best real estate experiences. To further impress upon her professionalism we had a glitch the day we were supposed to close. Even through the glitch she maintained positive, professional and worked as hard as she could to resolve the glitch. It is easy to be great when things run smooth. You find out how great someone is when it doesn’t run perfect.
I would highly recommend Sarah and her team.
TAMMY S., SELLER
Sarah was an absolute joy to work with. She answered our questions immediately, precisely, and thoughtfully! Always a true professional and such a very sweet and kind person. She even gave us a gift at closing! Would definitely recommend her for any one’s real estate needs.
JAN D., SELLER
Sarah and her team handled the sale of our home (and our purchase too) with expertise and professionalism. We were nervous about our higher asking price, but received a full asking, 3 week close, all-cash offer on the first day! We couldn’t have been more pleased with her guidance in preparing the house for the sale and finding the right price. Well done Sarah!
THERESA S., BUYER
Ed and the entire Red Key key team have been awesome through the whole house buying process! We dealt with difficult sellers, and Ed was on our side the entire time. Would highly recommend!
MARYANN G., SELLER
Sarah Bernard is the consummate real estate professional. She spent time with me getting to know what my likes and dislikes were, as well as the type of neighborhood I was seeking. Sarah is knowledgeable about different neighborhoods in the St. Louis area.
Sarah helped me find my new residence and sell my old one. She listened to my concerns and my hopes, and took them into considerations as we went through each process. She was patient as she guided me through both of these experiences.
She is awesome!
Our experience with Sarah Bernard was excellent. She had in depth knowledge of our market area, gave us good advice on preparing our property and was always in communication with us. We appreciated all the feedback on each showing, positive and negative. In addition, she made sure our property was in good shape for each showing which was very important, since it was a weekend home, in the forest and needed some preening before each showing. She brought us good clients and in the end, we were very happy with our sale. I recommend Sarah for all these reasons.
SUSAN J., SELLER
Sarah is an exceptional realtor! She made our property sale easy from start to finish. She arranged beautiful marketing materials, promoted our property, led us through extended negotiations and brought us a great final price on our property. Sarah goes out of her way to help with every aspect of the sales transaction. We were selling an Innsbrook home, and she is exceptionally knowledgeable about that market. We were very grateful to have Sarah represent us!
S. GIESELMAN, SELLER
She knew the market well and was aware of correct pricing. She was very helpful in correct staging and had professional photography. We always received prompt response to any calls. Overall, we had a pleasant and professional experience.
JOY A., BUYER
Jamie considers my needs and provides honest, insightful guidance as we move through the sale process. She keeps negotiations moving forward to prevent uncomfortable delays. She considers both sides of a transaction from the appropriate professional stance. I would recommend Jamie to any person wanting to buy a home.
A. SIMPSON, BUYER
I highly recommend Jamie. Although we only bought a small condo, we were treated like her number one client. When we encountered problems with closing Jamie always kept us informed, she was always available to us, extremely thorough and professional. We couldn’t ask for more. Update: we are now a second time client and again we appreciate Jamie’s straightforward and thorough attention to detail.
STEVE R., SELLER
From beginning to end, Sarah was professional, personable, knowledgeable, responsive, and unflappable. She and her team were invaluable to me, not only in the marketing and showing of my home, but also in helping me with the paper work, repairs, and financial matters involved in selling a property.
Sarah was recommended to me by another extremely satisfied client. I am so glad I took the advice and chose Sarah to represent me.
JOEL & SAAR M., BUYER
Jamie was wonderful through every step of the way of our home search! We did not live in St. Louis while searching for a home so we needed a lot of help touring homes remotely, getting details, looking into neighborhoods, etc. and since we also had a newborn, our schedule was not that easy to deal with. Jamie helped us with everything. She was always available, any time of day, any day of the week, and did everything with a smile and great attitude. We would warmly recommend Jamie to anyone looking for a home.
SAM M., BUYER
I worked with Ed Kidd/Sarah Bernard for a purchase of a new house. Both Ed and Sarah were very professional and knowledgeable. I didn’t have to follow up with Ed on any questions I had, he always made sure to get back to me very quickly. The process of purchasing my house was completely smooth from beginning to end. I would highly recommend both Ed and Sarah.
RENDA P., BUYER
Ed is a delight to work with, he doesn’t act pushy or act like a know it all, he IS knowledgeable and does offer insight but also allows you the ability to ask questions, which to us, was extremely important. He’s prompt, and courteous, never rude and he’s fun! I’d recommend him to ANYONE.
Sarah is the most competent and conscientious Real Estate Agent I have ever worked with. She has helped me on three real estate transactions and in all cases got the job done quickly and professionally. Real estate transactions are never easy and it is not uncommon for problems to arise. Sarah knows how to deal with the issues and keep everyone on an emotional even keel. That is a real skill, and one that is important in real estate. She is also extremely fair and realistic. I can’t recommend Sarah enough. She is a true professional.
ANNA W, BUYER
Ed was great to work with, patient, knowledgeable, and very supportive! Ed checked in often, recommended additional services needed, made the buying process Much more simple.
ANGELA M, BUYER
Jamie Gilman was very attentive to our needs in looking for our second home. She stayed in communication with us during our search and replied quickly to any of our question regarding the various properties we considered. During negotiations, there was immediate correspondence with the selling agent, at almost any time of day. Even weeks after the closing, Jamie remained in touch to answer any remaining questions.
G. ZAZZARO, BUYER
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Jamie on the purchase of a home in Ladue. Jamie took the time to get to know us and truly understand our needs. She didn’t waste our time with showings that weren’t a close match. She has amazing knowledge of the area, process and highlighted various watch outs throughout the process. Jamie was also extremely responsive to every email, text and phone call. The entire process was extremely smooth and I would without a doubt use Jamie again and highly recommend her as a realtor.
Our experience with Jamie could not have gone any smoother. We found her to be extremely responsive, helpful and genuine, and focused on finding the right home for us. We won’t hesitate to recommend Jamie to friends and family!
D. KRAUS, BUYER
Ed Kidd is the very best real estate agent I have ever worked with. He was efficient, effective, and friendly. He knew the area and used technology to help us locate several possibilities and then helped us find the perfect place!
RACHEL B., SELLER
Sarah help me thru the process of selling my property. She is so very knowledgeable about the area. She told me that my property will be SOLD, and it was. I thank GOD for putting her in my path. To a very successful life Sarah, because she will have very much success in life. I will look to see you on BRAVO Show “Millionaire Listings“
Sarah made the entire process of selling the house a true pleasure! Her knowledge of the area and her negotiation skills are top notch. She was always available whenever we had a question, and her explanations were always very helpful. Her expertise in navigating the entire selling process also was excellent, and was vital to completing the sale. I would highly recommend her.
RICHARD H, SELLER
Sarah was great from the first phone call through the last at close. She was always available and immediately responsive to questions or concerns. She would be the first one I go to the next time I am purchasing/selling a home.
MICHELLE AND JAMIE, HOME SELLERS – LADUE
Sarah is terrific! She was committed to the sale of our home in an efficient and professional manner! I would use her services again in a heartbeat!
We purchased a secondary residence in 2014 where Sarah was the agent for the seller. She acted as an agent for both the seller and us in the sale. We were extremely pleased with her professionalism and knowledge of the business as well as her ability to offer expertise while remaining neutral to both parties. We were so impressed with her that we listed our other secondary residence with her knowing that the property was in a difficult market where property moves slowly. She has gone so many extra steps that have made the process easy and successful. With these two sales now behind us we would use her again and recommend her to anyone needing a true professional that is a delight to work with.
I’ve had other agents say to me “if you want to sell the house, just lower the price!” But that’s a sign of a lazy agent. Sarah isn’t like that at all. She worked very hard to get my house sold and get me a good price in a timely manner. She used the latest technology to advertise, and assertively contacted other agents to get my home in front of them. She followed up on EVERYTHING, especially after a showing. She addressed issues that came up in the feedback, and worked with me to make needed changes to make the home more appealing to buyers. Sarah is conscientious, a trait that is hard to find in a real estate agent. Sarah helped me sell a home in Florissant in 2014, and it sold during the Ferguson unrest. If that isn’t a sign of a good agent, I don’t know what is.
DON AND RACHEL, SELLERS
Our home was located in a gated community on the golf course. We contracted with what we felt was the best realtor for our situation. That proved not to be a correct assumption. After 10 months we had only received two “low ball” offers. I had some contact with Sarah while still under contract with our original realtor. We decided that it was time to give Sarah the opportunity to list our home. We reassessed our position and with her guidance, we determined that our home was overpriced. We adjusted the price. Our house showed well with pictures taken by our agent. Sarah, at her own expense, brought in a professional photographer to take a new set of pictures. What a difference! The house sold in two months at a price that worked for us. Sarah brings to the table new and fresh ideas.
Sarah worked very hard to help me find the perfect house. Even though she has many clients, Sarah made me feel as I was her only client. When issues arose in the selling of my home in Atlanta Sarah worked with my agent there to help complete the sale of my home. Her service continues after my purchase. She has a vast community of contractors and other very helpfull contacts to get you started in your new home. Sarah made my home buying experience an easy exciting time. I highly recommend her for your home buying or selling needs!!!
KRIS, SELLER AND BUYER
Sarah created a wonderful structure for me as a tool to provide guidance and clarity during the beginning steps of the sales process. She requested that I create a specific list of the characteristics I was seeking in my new home while giving me great guidance about prepping my existing home for sale. She was knowledgeable about the prevailing market; establishing the right listing price, most importantly. She took the steps to ensure a FAST sale by creating excellent marketing tools and following up with every visitor in my home. She sold my home in under a month within 5% of my asking price! Amazing work!
MARVIN AND BARBARA, SELLERS
Sarah did a wonderful job helping us sell our vacation home. The most unique aspect of this sale was that it was done long distance….thus, there were many, many telephone calls and emails. Sarah handled it all with the aplomb of a seasoned professional. We can not say enough about the outstanding job she did with having our belongings from the house shipped to us. We thank her very much for all her hard work.
We had our chalet at Innsbrook on the market with another agency for three years and had a handful of people look at it and no offers. We changed to Sarah Bernard and it sold in 7 months! She helped us list it at a good price and helped us negotiate the offered price to almost our full amount! We had many repairs to make in a short amount of time after we accepted the sellers terms. Sarah knew who to call and the contractors were there within a couple of days. She even kept up with the whole process when she was on her personal vacation. Sarah’s expertise is second to none and I would gladly have her as our agent any time. What a dynamite of an agent!!
Sarah is a no nonsense salesperson. She was relentless in finding a buyer. She was very thorough in her analysis of other properties that allowed us to adjust to the appropriate asking price. I highly recommend her.
We are so grateful we found Sarah to help guide us through this adventure. She was spot-on in finding us exactly what we were looking for. She listened to us, paid attention to our wish list and found properties she knew would fit the bill. We highly recommend her to anyone in the St. Louis area, or Innsbrook. We couldn’t have been treated better and plan to call her again when the time comes!
ANONYMOUS, BOUGHT A SINGLE FAMILY HOME FOR CLOSE TO $775000
Sarah came to us as referral from a neighbor, who is also an agent, because of her expertise with properties in Innsbrook, MO. Sarah is top notch, A+ and the BEST for service to us!
SUZANNE, BOUGHT A HOME IN FORRISTELL
I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough. She’s everything you’d want an agent to be: friendly, responsive, patient, professional. Did I say responsive? It takes a certain skill to allow one’s client to feel as he’s the agent’s sole client. Sarah has that skill. We love Sarah!
Sarah represented my spouse and me in the purchase of a home in Wildwood, MO. Sarah was absolutely superb in all aspects of the process and made for a very positive experience. Her communication skills and timely responsiveness to our inquiries were most impressive. This has been the best of the many real estate transactions we’ve made thanks to Sarah. We hold her in high regard and have no reservations in recommending her to our friends.
JOHN & CAROL R., SELLER
Can’t say enough positive about Sarah and her team. Our chalet had been on the market for 3.5 years without even a contract. We signed the listing with Sarah on Tues. and left for spring break. That Sun. Sarah called with an offer. She helped us through the negotiation and then with all the details to a successful closing within 6 weeks. Much of this was worked out while we were out of town, including in Asia, so she understands all facets of the process and made it seamless for us.
