    My wife and I are so Grateful that we had Sarah help us out with our first home purchase! Sarah helped us find our dream home within the first few weeks of us looking. She made the entire process extremely easy. She replied IMMEDIATELY to any text, emails of phone calls we sent her. Sarah, Thank you so much for helping us out! Your knowledge and professionalism was outstanding! I highly recommend ERA Donahoe. I look forward to working with them again!

    We had an incredibly well-rounded experience with Sarah who not only represented our first time selling a home, she represented our purchase as well. Being extremely pregnant during the process, I was easily overwhelmed by the many asks and details demanded by buying and selling simultaneously. Sarah was extremely attentive and proactive during each and every step by supplying timelines, reminders, "what to expect" documents, etc. - this above and beyond attention to detail and rare level of service made buying and selling our homes not only successful but enjoyable. Sarah added an element of 'special' to each step by helping to stage our home and create unique marketing pieces to knowledgeably leading our open house and exciting buyers about home features. Our home sold in one week for well above the asking price. We were thrilled! Sarah did her homework ensuring we used our time efficiently touring houses either matching our wish list items or helping us see potential and where we could make wise investments. All in all, there is no one I'd recommend more than Sarah Donahoe to support a successful process of buying and/or selling a home.

    Sarah handled the purchase of a home in Morgan Hill for my mother-in-law who has Alzheimers. We were on a pretty quick timeline, but she managed to find the perfect home for our situation (size, location, layout, etc). We also got an incredible deal on the house and the whole transaction was the easiest home purchase we've ever made. The house was being sold "buy owner" and she took it upon herself to do much of the extra work that another agent would normally do. Sarah is a phenomenal agent because she is passionate about what she does. You can't beat that!

    Sarah was our real estate agent in selling our first home and buying our second and we could not have had a better experience. We put an offer on a new house before selling our first so the situation could've been hectic but Sarah guided us through it and handled it with ease. We expect a high level of attention to detail but Sarah managed to surpass that. She even came into our home herself and helped us stage it to sell. She is honest and trustworthy and extremely dedicated to her profession. You will not find a better agent in this area!

    Sarah is truly the best of the best. Obviously choosing a realtor can be an overwhelming task. I have several lifelong friends who are realtors, but chose the option that was in the best interest of my family. If you are reading this, I promise you don't need to look any further. Just prepare yourself for a unique and pleasant experience! This was my first time having FUN during this process. I thought our home would take many months to sell; it sold in ONE WEEK!!! Not only was our floor plan unpopular, the home was in need of some TLC plus several upgrades, AND it was the holiday season (Thanksgiving/Christmas)!! Our home was competitively priced, definitely leaning towards the higher end. I will be honest, I didn't think we would get anywhere close to the listing price. I actually thought it would be a deterrent, but moved forward trusting the expert. We received just under asking price!! Sarah also helped us find our current home, one we would not have considered looking at. She knew what we were looking for better than we did! The best part?? She made the process of selling and buying a home during the holidays seamless and stress-free! I tell people that I have experienced more stress buying a dress than I did selling and buying our new home!Our family is so thankful for Sarah. She cares so much about her clients, she becomes like family during the process. Her passion for helping and changing families' lives for the better is clearly what motivates her. Her expertise, professionalism, honesty, and empathy cannot be topped.

    Sarah is the best in the business! She walked us through buying our first pre-existing construction home from start to finish. She held our hands throughout the process and calmed our nerves. We attempted to purchase a home several times before with different agents but were never successful until we met Sarah. Sarah understood the needs of our family and showed a genuine interest in helping us achieve our goals. She's a kind soul and a tough negotiator for her clients. Even after closing escrow, she has continued to make herself available to us. Sarah has made clients for life out of us. Call her! You won't regret it!

    Before Sarah was even our agent she came to our house and gave us some "must do" tips for preparing our house for sale. We made the decision to have her represent us for the sale of our home and it was the best decision we made throughout this process of selling and buying a new home. Sarah was available, at any time, to call or text us regarding any question or concern. Our house sold in about eight days which left us scrambling to find just the right house to buy. She helped us find our dream home almost right away. Throughout the escrow process she kept us apprised of any and all issues related to the progress of the sale and purchase. This was one of the most stressful times we have experienced as a married couple. Because of Sarah's work ethic, experience, and professionalism we got through this process and are extremely happy with the results.

    My Community Involvement

    • Why are we in business? We are passionate about peace - financial peace in particular. We believe it spreads through real estate more than any other investment. Our vocation is to educate and serve our clients so their real estate decisions bring them closer to reaching their lifelong goals. We love to partner with our clients and envision not the highest priced property attainable, but the smartest purchase that leads to less worry, more family-time, and more joy.

We sure hope to see you at one of our fantastic fundraisers for MDA!
    • We believe that the status symbol of the future is not the fancy leased sports car, but the paid off mortgage. When homeowners can comfortably make their monthly payments and know mortgage pay-off is truly attainable, the chief worry for most adults is replaced with peace. We believe this peace spreads. It makes families happier and our community stronger.
