Sarah Smith's Recommendations
My home was a long process, on the market for 7 months, we went through many low ball offers, Sarah was always positive and kept us on tract. She was always professional and knowledgeable. Any questions I had, she was able to answer right away. Sarah was always easy to get a hold of and never made me feel any question was too small or a bother to her. Sarah worked very hard for us and we really appreciated every minute. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone for Real estate issues.
Husband and I needed a home of our own; after much prayer, Husband heard of Mountain Trust Realty and decided to see if it was meant to be. After explaining our sad story to Gary Cooper, real estate guru extraordinaire (look for his separate Review), he introduced us to Sarah Smith, our assigned Real Estate Agent. During the initial meet and greet, Sarah patiently & intently listened to our wants, needs and desires, and measured them against the financial reality of our situation. And let me tell you, they were extensive! Bless her heart, Sarah sent us the same night MLS listings to review, and we were off and running. Sarah relentlessly searched for potential homes from Beaumont, CA, La Mesa and all the way down to So. San Diego. She sent us listings virtually every day. If we needed to tour a property, Sarah was basically at our beck and call, no matter the hour/day. Excellent, patient customer service with a personal touch. She gave her advice that always had our best interest in mind, and never pushed her opinion or lost patience with us. Let me tell you, Dear Reader, Sarah really racked up the miles on her car as we power toured properties, visiting up to 5 properties in one day, searching for the perfect home for us was the norm. Because of Sarah, our home search began late June early July, closed Halloween, and we were settled in November 2014. Our ridiculously-crunched-for-time home purchase journey would never have been so smooth and/or painless without God sending the professional, knowledgeable, patient service and skills of Ms. Sarah Smith, Realtor Extraordinaire, through Mountain Trust Realty. Thank you, Sarah et all, and God bless!
In April of 2015 my girlfriend and I began searching for our first home to purchase. The initial realtor we worked with did not fulfill our expectations and cost us money as well as time. We needed an efficient, patient and technology friendly realtor for our second round of home buying and Sarah Smith fulfilled these requirements perfectly. Upon our initial meeting with Sarah it was clear from her warm and patient manner that she would be dedicated to finding us a home no matter how long it took. At this meeting she enrolled us in her preferred online listing website and we immediately started looking at condos. During the home searching process we changed our preferences several times and each time Sarah updated the listing settings to find the most appropriate condos for us. In addition, our loan wasn't a typical FHA loan and there were stricter requirements that had to be fulfilled. Sarah was excellent at filtering out the condos that wouldn't work for our loan, saving us time and frustration. The home buying process with Sarah began in September 2015 and by December 2015 we had purchased and moved into a condo in Oak Park, San Diego. Throughout the entire process Sarah was patient with our requests and remained positive. My girlfriend and I were both impressed with her use of technology as she ensured all her paperwork could be signed digitally, saving time and gas money. Sarah also regularly checked in with us and made sure we could contact her at virtually any time through text and phone calls. Overall, Sarah is an excellent realtor who made the home-buying process easy for two naïve, first-time purchasers. Whether you are a first-time buyer or already understand the process, Sarah clearly has the experience, training and skill to handle anything.
Sarah is one of the best Agents out there. Her knowledge of the San Diego market is amazing. Very friendly and professional. Five stars!
Sarah Smith is a professional and knowledgable agent. She made sure every detail was taken care of in a cheerful and positive manner. She was available when we needed to talk with her and responded promptly to requests. Her experience was evident throughout our home buying process and she is the person we will call and recommend to others for future real estate needs. Thank you, Sarah!

Sarah is a professional, friendly, interested agent. She made us feel so comfortable and well taken care of. My husband had many questions and concerns and she answered immediately everyone of his questions. We can’t thank her enough!
Sarah Smith did an impeccable job as our real estate agent. Over the course of five years, we presented her with homes we were interested in and she was always available and willing to work with us. The home we finally bought was complicated. Our bid was contingent on selling our home. We had a very short timeline to sell our home and remove the contingency. It felt impossible, and we were surprised when Sarah made it happen. The complications didn’t end with the sale of our home. The new house we were buying, we discovered, had over $100 thousand dollars’ worth of repairs. It surprised us as well as the owners, so we were certain the deal would fall through. Despite it looking too difficult, we continued getting quotes for repairs and presented it to the owners. We spent over a month getting several quotes for work, negotiating with contractors and with the owners. There were several times we thought the deal seemed hopeless, but Sarah kept us encouraged and willing to continue moving forward. I couldn’t believe the day the house closed. It felt like she made the impossible possible. We are astonished with her knowledge of real estate, home repairs and dealing with contractors. She understands the process from both sides and works in a way that makes everyone feel comfortable. She is a skilled negotiator, is thorough with contracts, making sure we were protected throughout the process. I know reviews are always better when you mention a weak spot, or also post a negative comment along with the praise, however, I can’t think of anything I wished she had done differently. She is a fantastic person and a professional. I cannot recommend another real estate agent.
Sarah was recommend to us by a family member and we are so happy to have had Sarah as our agent. As first time homebuyers we were not really sure what to expect. Not only was she responsive to our questions but she was very patient and guided us through each stage of the process. She is very proactive and made sure the entire experience positive stress-free. Sarah is a true professional and I strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
We had the privilege of being the buyers agent on a transaction with Sarah. Sarah is a great agent, coming from one agent to another. She was very communicative and very responsive. A great negotiator. She understand the win-win mentality. She had a very hard transaction with tight transaction and she knew what to do when yet still kept everyone moving forward to a common goal. She did a great job for her clients and really worked the transaction. The whole deal almost fell apart a few times, but Everyone, Sarah especially did what they could moving to a successful close. I do not think this deal would have gotten done with any other agent. I, as another agent, would recommend Sarah and would gladly be on the other side at anytime with Sarah.
Sarah is patient, caring, and responsive to my desires. She has become a trusted friend - and I did not know her before the search began. I would recommend her most highly and without any reservation at all.
The best. We've worked with a few realtors over the years and Sarah is our only realtor in the San Diego area. We've bought and sold with her. On the buying side...Sarah knows the area VERY well. We were first moving into San Diego from Florida. Since we were new to the area, we wanted to check it all out. She learned what we were looking for and stuck in with us as we looked at A LOT of houses in a lot of neighborhoods. She gave us great advice and also gave us room to make our own decisions. She found us a great place and helped us negotiate a good deal. She even helped us find a contractor to make a few improvements and gave us some advice about how to do that in a way that would make the house more sellable later. When it came time to sell that house, she sold it within 3 weeks of us telling her we wanted to sell. She told us exactly how to stage the house, she did a full weekend open-house and had 4 offers on the table in that first weekend. She knew just how to price it, how to show it, and how to negotiate so that we got the best deal. In addition, Sarah is just "cool". She is professional, knows her business, great to get along with, super-patient and understanding. We love her and will continue to work with her on any realtor needs we have.
I cannot say enough good things about Sarah. She knows the San Diego and surrounding areas was able to steer us to the area that would best fit our wants and needs. She was patient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. Home shopping can be a pain but it doesn't have to be painful. I will recommend her to any family/friends/co-workers without hesitation. Thank you for a wonderful experience Sarah!
