Give Sarah a challenge and she’ll not only meet it, she’ll exceed it. First was searching for housing from a different state, then a Covid experience still limiting me to being actively working with her, and lastly, a very irritating and difficult sellers agent. She got us all through that, thankfully. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and am trying to get one of my friends to move here to. Of course I’ll steer her to Sarah.

This was our first time selling our home and trying to buy a new one. Sarah made the process so easy! She was extremely flexible in setting up homes to view and offering tips to help ours sell fast! She is excellent with communication and was a pleasure to work with!

Amanda and Seth Bontrager | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah is the best realtor I’ve ever had. She worked tirelessly to find the perfect home for me. Even after closing, which she attended, Sarah followed up with me to ensure my relocation went smoothly. Sarah has become a valued friend, as well as, a truly professional realtor.

Scott McIntosh | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah, went above and beyond on the sale of our home. In order for the sale to go through we had to replace a septic system, Sarah stepped up and sourced all the key players and managed the process with a smile, constantly updating us on the progress and keeping the buyers interested in the property. Sarah is the Best of the BEST - She will not disappoint!

Bill Commander | Home Seller
testimonial quote

Sarah is wonderful. She is patient, creative, and adaptable. We lived in the city but couldn't decide if we wanted to stay in the city or uproot out to the suburbs. She patiently helped us navigate Richmond as a whole and ultimately where we wanted to be. If you're looking for someone who will be honest when she's doing a showing (looking for the good, the bad, and the ugly) and is willing to stick it out with you to find what you need, Sarah is your gal!

TAYLOR BATT | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

At a time when our family had more to do than we had time for, Sarah helped the selling process flow smoothly and helped reduce our stress levels. We put our house on the market after moving out of the state, so Sarah helped to push us over finish line in terms of organizing final repairs, preparations and inspections completed. She struck the right balance of offering her recommendations but letting us be in charge and make decisions when we wanted to. Overall, we were more than satisfied with our experience with Sarah and highly recommend her. You’ll love working with Sarah and will appreciate her genuine, friendly, flexible, efficient, and professional approach.

It was an overwhelming experience overall for our family ,specially downsizing home. Sarah helped us in every way she could. She took care of all our religious beliefs and helped us finding the right one. When I first met her, she tasted the food, I made, which made me comfortable to easily open up to her. She was eager to know what our priorities are and traditions we follow. We saw a bunch of houses where she helped us above and beyond and answered every single question of ours throughout the selling and buying process. I wish her good luck and I am pretty sure she will achieve greater heights in the future.

Meeting was an "aligning of the stars" of sorts for us. We met her at an open house and immediately knew we found our agent! We were new to the purchase market, but knew the area well. Sarah walked many, many houses with us, often at the drop of a hat and with 1 hour's notice. One of the most engaging attributes of Sarah's approach to her profession is that we felt we immediately made a good friend with whom we happened to be in the shopping houses business together. Poor Sarah had to endure our own evolution of what we wanted to do, where we wanted to be, and ultimately why we needed to do what we did (which was build!). Sarah was always available and eager to take care of us at every turn, including drafting several offers and aiding us to navigate different options during our long search. We never felt like she was burdened or caught off guard with our many, many changes and evolutions! Rather, she was a willing participant and a matronly influence for our family's homestead! We are happy to call Sarah our friend and would recommend her to anyone who wants a top-notch realtor (so long as we don't need her first!)

testimonial quote

This was the first house I bought. Sarah helped me with basic knowledge in buying a house. She was very patient to listen to me and search houses according to my requirements. She was very enthusiastic to accompany with me and my husband to view houses. She was very responsive. I had few questions for the owners and she was contacted and replied to me very quickly. And yes we got the house we liked at the end with Sarah's effort to make the deal reasonably. Sarah is very knowledgeable, helpful and patient. Thank you for your amazing effort.

Dung Nguyen | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

This was not any easy purchase experience. A large farm and we were dealing with a lazy selling agent. Sarah made this deal happen - always responsive , and she took on the work that was not hers to do. She stayed calm and allowed this grumpy old man to vent and kept me patient. I truly cannot say enough great things about Sarah and her work ethic. I am proud to give her my highest recommendation.

Todd Moore | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah was great and really went above and beyond considering the person selling the house we bought and his realtor were almost comically bad. She really knew the market and the different areas around Richmond. Huge thank you to her for pulling everything together.

James Arhelger | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

We were looking for a home in the summer of 2014. We had just moved to Virginia and had no idea of where we wanted to live. Sarah was extremely helpful and patient with helping us quickly narrow down our search and get into the best home for our budget and timeline. And because we decided to buy new she was even willing to come and help me pick out all of the best options to help with any potential future resale of my new home. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone.

Tiffany Luce | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah was extremely helpful in selling my house out in Goochland in the summer of 2016. She marketed very well any had many people at the open houses. I was very pleased to work with her any Joyner Fine Properties.

Richard Budaji | Home Seller
testimonial quote

Sarah is AWESOME! We kept going back and forth on whether we wanted to rent or own, and she was willing to help no matter what. If we wanted to see it, she made it happen. If we ever sell our current house, she will be the person we call to help us sell it!

Tara Woleben | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah is wonderful! She guided us through a tough sellers market when buying our house and even tougher negotiations once we were under contract with our sellers. She was simultaneously the listing agent for a condo sale for us. Less than a week after listing we had multiple offers all over asking price. Highly recommend Sarah for all your real estate needs!

Susanne Weisz | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

I absolutely loved working with Sarah. She was verypatient with me as I was very picky. She made every effort to work with my schedule and keep me informed on available properties. We looked at a lot of houses and I never felt pressured to just pick one. She was also very knowledgeable about the market and really answered a lot of my questions during the process. I also appreciate that she had good contacts for all the other processes we had to go through when it came time to buy. She really does her best for her clients!

Teresa Sharpe | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah was very helpful and knowledgeable about the local housing market, which I appreciated as someone unfamiliar with the area.

Bruce Huhmann
testimonial quote

Sarah did an amazing job helping us find the perfect house to downsize. She made herself available to see a variety of homes during a very busy time of the year (Christmas). Even though the offer came in on Christmas Eve, Sarah was with us every step of the way. We also appreciate Sarah's willingness to go to bat for us throughout the process. We can't imagine using anyone else as we leave our home of 39 years to begin a new adventure!

Edith and Curtin Robinson | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah was nothing short of awesome!!!! As new home buyers she was able to walk us through the steps and was always patient and keen in making sure that we were satisfied. I would recommend Sarah to any home buyer/seller

Sharon Njuguna | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah showed us many homes as we were relocating from South Carolina and didn't know exactly what area of Richmond we wanted to live. She was always positive, kind, knowledgeable, and readily available to us! I highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home!

Janeen Stechman | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah worked both ends of the process for us. She was there every step of the way and navigated us through some less than simple issues. Not to mention getting a full offer on our house in less than a day! Very good experience.

John Salmon | Home Seller & Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Sarah was very easy to work with as second time home buyers. She was always very quick to respond to our calls and emails. Sarah did a great job of getting us viewings of homes in a competitive sellers market and did an incredible job of negotiating! I highly recommend Sarah Carswell!

Leslie Hammond | Home Buyer

Lottie Moore | Home Buyer
testimonial quote

Where to start!?! So many wonderful things to say about our experience with Sarah. My husband and I were searching for our first home and loved working with Her. She first sat down with us to hear about our wants and needs in our new home. Sarah spent so much time with us and was willing to meet us when it worked with our schedule. We saw so many houses and finally found the perfect one. Sarah helped us through the entire process and made it so simple. We couldn't be any happier in our new home thanks to Sarah and her hard work and dedication.

Katie and Colin Lee | Home Buyer

We had an excellent agent and that part wasn't bad. However there was way too much stopping and starting to closing with the financial aspect of the purchase. I think that Sarah did an excellent job.
