Integrity, High Standards, Dedication, Transparency & Exemplary Communication are the constants when it comes to Sarah, both personally and professionally. These qualities are innate to who she is and have traveled with her throughout her life, which has led her to a very successful real estate career.

Sarah graduated from Hickory High School in 2002. Throughout her time there, she held multiple service oriented positions, including sports team management, Student Council Secretary and President of the Juniorettes - a club of young women who work together to meet the needs of their communities through volunteer service projects.

From there, Sarah attended Meredith College in Raleigh, NC where she made the Dean's List and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She double majored in Human & Mass Communication and minored in Sociology. Sarah co-chaired the Big Sis/ Lil' Sis Program, organized numerous events and served on several committees. At graduation, Sarah was surprised and recognized with the "Service & Dedication" Award, an award voted on by her peers for her service and dedication to her class throughout their 4 years together.

After college, Sarah jumped into a management career in Charlotte, NC at an Assisted Living Facility where she helped oversee everyday function of the facility and its residents. That job led to a position at the company's Corporate Office located back home in Hickory, NC where she was responsible for corporate event planning and marketing for all of the company's assisted living facility locations throughout North Carolina.

In 2009, Sarah obtained her real estate license after a nudge from her mother, Judy Stansfield, a top producing agent at Coldwell Banker Boyd & Hassell. Sarah is proud to say that she was trained by the best in the business!

After 15 years in the business, Sarah has proven to be a successful, seasoned agent. Repeat clients are the greatest compliment to her. She treats every client with the same respect and attention, whether they are selling a $5,000 vacant lot or a $1,000,000+ lakefront estate. Sarah always tells her clients that she never wants them to settle for a property until they find the right one, no matter how long it takes. She truly means that. When marketing a property, Sarah knows that you only have one first impression. She works with homeowners to make sure the home is 100% show ready, hires a professional photographer and utilizes a tried and true marketing plan.

It's important to love where you live! After experiencing 5 corporate moves state to state growing up, Sarah has a true appreciation and love for this area of the country. Out of all of the places she's lived, she will tell you that Hickory, NC is her favorite, hands down. To her, Hickory has that nostalgic small town atmosphere and offers sweet southern hospitality with an overall excellent quality of life.

Sarah has helped numerous clients move to this area from other areas of the country with success. She knows what it takes to represent her clients when they can't physically be here for the process because the distance is too great, but must have a home ready for them to move straight into when they arrive. Sarah also has experience with helping clients sell their current home and purchase their new home simultaneously. Without the right guidance and support from an experienced agent, this situation has the potential to turn into a real "train wreck."

Sarah loves to help, create, fix and make things beautiful again. She has an eye for renovation. She has designed and overseen numerous projects at her personal homes. Her most significant project was the renovation of a 1930's home located in the heart of Oakwood, near downtown Hickory that was close to demolition. She worked tirelessly to bring it back to life and made the community very happy in the end! Often, people can only see something for what it is in the moment, but not the potential of what it could be. With this experience under her belt, Sarah frequently makes suggestions to her clients and paints a picture of what a property "could be." She helps her clients make decisions that will increase their property value and give them a greater turn on their investments. In a world where good help is hard to find, Sarah happily shares her inspector and contractor contacts with her clients.

While Sarah has a true passion for real estate, she feels that her greatest achievement in life is her family. There is nothing she is more proud of than her husband and her sweet son. In her down time, Sarah enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends, volunteering at her son's school, traveling, art, listening to music, home renovation projects and attending dance fitness classes & burn boot camp.

If you are considering making a real estate move in this area and need an agent that will always have your best interest at heart, reach out to Sarah. She will walk beside you every step of the way.
