Testimonials

My husband and I have moved several times with his company and bought several houses along the way. Sara Lee Parker has been, by far, our BEST Agent. She went above and beyond to work with our needs and place us in the best home. Sara Lee did not forget us after our sale and she continues to provide us with excellent service. She is not only a great agent, but she is a friend. Anyone working with Sara Lee Parker will be thankful that they chose her.

Virginia-Highland

I have worked with a lot of realtors over the years but no one can come close to the professionalism, extensive knowledge, impressive network of helpful contacts and prompt responsiveness as Sara Lee. Her sharp wit and mind make her a joy to work with and I also love how deeply involved in the community she is, giving back to so many worthwhile organizations! She is THE best!

Decatur

Sara Lee was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable, patient, low-pressure, and pleasant to be around. Sara Lee also knows the Morningside/Lenox Park neighborhood really well, so if that's where you're searching for a home, you'll be lucky to have her in your pocket

Morningside – Lenox Park

Sara Lee was an absolute Rockstar buyer’s agent. My husband and, first-time homebuyers, bought in an up and coming intown neighborhood. Sara Lee was masterful at explaining every step of the process, representing us well, finding exactly the property we wanted, and managing my anxiety! She was able to find us the perfect place in a very hot area before it even hit the market. Her responsiveness and knowledge were invaluable, and I could not recommend her more.

West View

Sara Lee was the perfect choice for our Intown condo search. Not knowing the area or exactly what we wanted, Sara began by showing us a variety of types and locations to help narrow our search. This was very helpful. Her knowledge of the various neighborhoods and condo buildings was extensive and detailed. She was patient, friendly, and willing to spend large chunks of time with us. We never felt that she was rushing us as we searched. Our emails, texts and phone calls were returned VERY quickly. In the end, she helped us purchase the perfect Midtown condo in the perfect Midtown location for a perfectly wonderful sales price! We would not hesitate to use Sara Lee again as our real estate agent.

Midtown

We have worked with a variety of agents over the years - we have found our agent for life now. Not only did she sell our house quickly, she helped us find our new home and was able to close both on the same day. Sara Lee was very professional and responsive to our needs. She guided us through the whole experience.
