"Sara is smart, thoughtful, and attentive. She will work hard for you and always in your best interest."
"It was my first time buying a home, and Sara made the whole process easy and fun. She is an excellent listener and very personable. She listened to and honed in on what was important to my husband and myself with regard to house and neighborhood, and came up with listings that fit well with our style; we had so much fun visiting the various houses; Sara is kind, honest, intuitive, and knowledgeable. She supported us from beginning to end, even leaving special treats in the refrigerator when we moved in. I highly recommend working with Sara."
"I recently moved from Boston, MA to Lafayette, CO and what I thought would be a very stressful experience, turned out to be pretty easy and relaxed. I'm literally sitting in my new home in Lafayette right now, enjoying the fire! I met Sara Groem through a friend who lives in the area and immediately liked her; she was friendly and professional and made me feel very comfortable with the whole process of buying a house. My wife and I spent a couple days with Sara looking at houses in Lafayette, Louisville and Longmont and turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected! Sara had a lot of great info about all of the areas which ultimately helped with our decision. There was nothing pushy about her and we felt no pressure to buy a house; we felt like she really just wanted us to find something we loved and it didn't matter how long it took. It turned out that we found something we loved pretty quickly and made an offer the next day! It all happened very quickly but with the help & support of Sara and her team it all went very smooth! Another plus is that Sara has a lot of great contacts in the area, so when it came to updating a few things in our new home, she new all the right people to help. All in all, I can say Sara made our experience of buying a home in Colorado really easy and even kind of enjoyable; I would highly recommend her!!!"
"We would confidently recommend Sara to anyone purchasing a home in the Boulder and surrounding areas. She was especially helpful in navigating a purchase while we were out of state. She was also patient, flexible, clear and incredibly responsive throughout the entire process."
"Sara made the whole process painless. She is extremely organized, data driven and patient. She helped me out with little things like getting in a cleaner at the last minute which made a huge difference on a quick close sale."
"From the minute we met Sara, we knew she had the best local knowledge and was very realizing in setting our price and giving us insight into timing. The real test came after the first offer fell through at the financing stage... She helped us through a sellers worst nightmare. Here's the best news: She managed to get us an even better offer than what we had originally accepted. Overall a fantastic experience with genuinely kind and caring people."

"Can’t recommend Sara highly enough.
We began our buying process with a brief chat outlining what I was after and how we would work together, and she lifted her end and made it look easy –
I thought going in that my requirements were pretty easy to satisfy, but in the hot Denver market I was quite wrong. My search lasted a couple months, but she kept me abreast of market opportunities and moved fast when the right thing came available. Her support in negotiations were spot-on, helping me leverage the time/money dynamic for the best financial deal I could have made, and I purchased a home that is pretty right for me.
Fast, wise, honest, direct, knowledgeable, thorough, easy on the brain – she probably has other clients, but you’d never know from working with her. Rock on Sara – good on you girl!"
"Sara found us the perfect house to fit our needs. She listened to what our requirements were and thoughtfully watched and listened to us as we discussed elements of houses we toured together that we liked and didn't like. In the end she found a home that met just what we wanted. She was extremely organized throughout the transaction and even went to bat for us for items that would not have otherwise asked for from the sellers. WE can't say enough great things about Sara!"
- Patrick and Jill
"We used Sara as our realtor to sell a higher end mountain property. We were immediately impressed with her knowledge of the market as well as her connections in the local community to effectively represent the property ahead of the actual listing. Because of her work and calm, professional demeanor, we got a great price for our place and the sale went off without a hitch. I was very impressed and pleased with Sara’s work on our sale and would recommend her to anyone looking for a great, friendly, and professional realtor."
"Sara was very professional and attentive in her work with us in our search for our next home. She uses modern communications technologies including IRES - MLS service that sends daily emails with newly listed properties that are consistent with a buyer's criteria. Sara also works closely with her professional colleagues to achieve the best results for the client(s). Through our successful process of finding a great property, submitting the offer, winning the contract, and closing the deal, Sara was very responsive to our questions and concerns, using email and text communications to quickly turnaround our many, many questions. Sara is very knowledgeable regarding the real estate market in the area of Boulder, Colorado (including Longmont, Louisville, Lafayette and Lyons), and knowledgeable about details of specific neighborhoods, as well as knowing specifics regarding local resources (schools, shopping, parks, transportation) and local planning issues. Sara and her partners helped us identify a perfect property for us, and shepherded us through the complicated purchase process. We are thrilled with our new home, and very happy that we worked with Sara. "

"Sara is among the most professional real estate professionals we’ve ever dealt with. She is fact driven, highly knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. "

"We live in the Front Range where the real estate market is so competitive there can often be several offers on a new home before the end of its first day on the market. If you really want that house, you need someone who can help you navigate the situation, someone who can make your offer look like the most desirable one. Sure, the dollar signs are always important when it comes to a bidding war, but in our experience, there can be more to it than that.
This is where Sara really helped us win our house. Our entire experience with her, from the very first home we saw to the very last, was easy going, no pressure, and was completely void of drama. Though we do not know the amounts of the other offers, we do know she helped us craft an overall package that portrayed us as serious, easy-going, and drama-free buyers -- much like her own style. I have no doubts this is a huge reason why we closed on our first home today instead of someone else.
We would highly recommend Sara to anyone considering a home purchase. She's diligent with the process, responsive when you have questions or requests, and she's easy to work with. I believe we're moving into our new home thanks to her guidance."

"My husband and I decided that the pandemic was a great time to buy a home – and Sara Groem was able to help us make it happen! She scheduled multiple private showings for us, and was able to snap up showings for new homes as soon as they were listed. When we finally found our dream home, Sara made sure that our bid was the strongest, and helped us go under contract within 24 hours of the home being listed. While under contract, Sara went above and beyond in getting expert opinions on the home so that we could feel completely confident about what we were buying. She texted and called us with updates throughout the process, so we never had to worry about what had to happen next. Three weeks after first seeing our dream home listed on Zillow, we are now home owners thanks to Sara! We highly recommend Sara and her team, and are excited to work with her again on selling our old home."

"I was an out-of-state buyer so had constraints on my ability to get to properties quickly once on the market. Sara was invaluable to my process as she quickly picked up on my priorities as a home buyer, was responsive and fun to work with. We ultimately found a home and prevailed during a very competitive multiple offer scenario.. our success was due, in large part, to Sara’s ability to negotiate, finesse the interpersonal side with sellers reps and manage all facets of the transaction. I trusted Sara’s knowledge and understanding of my wants/ needs si much that I ultimately bought the home based on video tours and without seeing it in person (COVID travel restrictions). I am now in the home and very happy!
Sara is smart, pragmatic and very knowledgeable about this market and she is also fun to work with. I highly recommend her as a partner in your process!"
"Sara helped me find my perfect home in less then a week.
She was connected through the whole process, shared moving tips, ideas, and planning.
She was laid back but kept me on the ball! So happy to work with her and would recommend her to friends and family."
"Our experience with Sara Groem was nothing short of amazing. Obviously to find a real estate agent who is professional and knows the area they operate in is incredibly important. While Sara more than excelled in these areas, what set her apart for us was her personality and her commitment to meeting our needs. Sara knew exactly what we were looking for and did more than can ever be expected to ensure we secured the home that was perfect for our future. Not only her expertise, but her personal touch made our first home buying experience better than we could have ever dreamed. We could not imagine having worked with anyone else."
"Sara was such a pleasure to work with throughout our home buying process. She is knowledgeable, proactive, diligent, and an all-around fantastic real estate professional! Home buying can be stressful, but Sara helped make the process low-pressure and enjoyable. She helped us find exactly what we were looking for and we could not recommend her highly enough! "
- Alisha and Mike
"Sara is simply awesome. She's on the ball, professional and knowledgeable; everything you are looking for in a good real estate agent. She worked with us over the months until we found the perfect house and then navigated us through the offer/negotiation process which is no small feat in a hot market. I'm not sure we would have gotten our house if we had used a different agent. Needless to say, we definitely recommend Sara to our friends and family."
- Michael and Deb
" Sara was a great help in dealing with some difficult situations on both the selling of our old house and the buying of our new one. Always prompt with replies and follow ups, and very helpful with any questions we had. We'd definitely recommend working with her to anyone buying or selling a home!
- Andy and Jen
"Not only is Sara Groem one of the best in the business of real estate, she does it with the upmost professionalism coupled with kindness. She listens well and makes excellent business decisions. She knows when to move fast and when to simply let things unfold in order to make buying or seeking a new home a seamless process. Most importantly, she cares deeply about her clients well-being and life goals. Her work extends beyond a real estate transaction, and many of her clients become lifelong friends. I recommend Sara and Open Real Estate if your looking for a trusted family run business that truly attends to your needs!"
