I cannot recommend Sara and Dave enough. Sara’s background as an attorney was instrumental in my home-buying process. She was the Michael Jordan of agents. It very useful to have her knowledge of the law in addition to her smart take on the Austin market. This was one reason why she stands out among real estate professionals I have met. Sara was patient with me, never pressured me, and was frank with sound advice. She was very helpful in my negotiation process with a difficult and contentious seller, and it was clear that her background as an attorney served us well in negotiating a great price and dominating the seller. Sara and Dave both made themselves available day and night, and responded to calls and emails on weekends and after business hours, which was useful due to my work schedule. I will definitely use them again, and recommend them very highly. – Kayvon R.
Sara did a great job selling our house in East Austin. She was thorough, responsive, and always quick to respond to any questions with smart insights and wise advice. She is great to work with, and you can rest assured that your sale or purchase is in excellent hands with Sara. – Clark & Nicki N.
Sara combines an attorney’s attention to detail and client service with genuine insight into the best way to sell your home in Austin’s fast-moving real estate market. We accepted an offer for above asking price the first day on the market and moved smoothly to an easy closing. Sara handled all the little hiccups that come with selling a house, allowing us to focus on all the other stress that comes with a move. We cannot recommend her highly enough. – Matt & Marisa M.
Sara has represented me in the sale of one property and the acquisition of another–in one of the hottest real estate markets Austin has ever had. She’s a thorough, organized and hard-working salesperson and attorney. I can’t recommend her highly enough! – Jo Ann M.
Sara’s background in both law and real estate was a great asset for us as we searched for our new house. She brings energy, passion, and a thorough knowledge of the Austin market to everything she does. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Austin. After searching for a few months, we chose to purchase a new build and found Sara’s input during the stages of our build very valuable when dealing with our builder. – Veronica B. & Jonathan S.
Last year, my wife and I were in the market for a new/larger home in our same school district and neighborhood. We hired Sara based on strong recommendations from others. Unfortunately, not any fault of Sara’s, the homes available in the specific neighborhood we wanted to be in just didn’t fit. Sara stayed on the case and continued tirelessly working for months and months, showing us all sorts of different options. One day, the wife and I decided to shift course entirely and look for a lot to build on. Without batting an eye, Sara changed directions and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Her patience and understanding are infinite. And her knowledge of the market unparalleled. You could not ask for better. – John R.
Sara sold our house near Dripping Springs and did an excellent job. She is very knowledgeable, experienced, and professional, while managing to be down-to-earth, funny, and easy-going. Thank you Sara and Floyd RE. Y’all rock. – Ken & Liz O.
Sara was an excellent realtor, and helped me enormously in the sale of my house this past summer. She helped me understand the minutiae behind every decision I needed to make, walked me through all forms and contracts I needed to sign, and acted as a great advocate for me throughout the whole process. I highly recommend using her services, I had a great experience working with her. – Ashley B.
After 9 months of rejected offers on investment properties, my husband and I had just about given up on looking for a duplex as it seemed like the market was just too insane. Then we talked to Sara and she said she would keep an eye on any properties popping up within her network of contacts. We didn’t get our hopes up, as the ones that stayed on the market for over a day tended to have massive issues. Sure enough, she found us a great property that we were able to finance without putting 100% cash down. At every point in the buying process, Sara offered savvy advice and recommendations. She also seemed to anticipate the questions we would ask before we asked them. She was the most thorough and responsive real estate expert I have ever worked with – and I say expert because her level of knowledge, professionalism and legal background elevated her way above a typical agent. She also has nerves of steel and does not let the integrity of the buyer decision-making process get compromised by quick deadlines. She is an amazing asset to have in this brutal market. Because of her, something we thought was impossible – owning a duplex in the Austin housing market – became a reality in a matter of months. I hope she isn’t too busy with other happy repeat clients to represent us the next time we want to buy or sell a house! – T.H.
We first met Sara as our property manager for a house were renting with friends. She was very professional and responded quickly to requests that she was the natural persona we went to when trying to find a house in this crazy market! We didn’t think we could afford anything but she was very patient and helpful in finding our first home (an older condo still well within Austin!). We had a few bumps along the road of finding it, some sellers in Austin are crazy!, but Sara knew when something was crazy and when it was just the market giving us a reality check. We couldn’t of done it without her and will always recommend her to friends/family and when we decide to upgrade! – Sarah S.
Sara was a pleasure to work with. She returned all my emails and phone calls in a timely manner, which isn’t always the case with realtors. She explained the process in depth and we always knew what steps were coming next. She is very detail oriented which is so important for a realtor, as you are trusting them with the biggest investment in your life most likely. I used her to sell my condo, and I got the price I needed in the timeframe I expected. When it came to buying our house, we ran into some trouble, as the house we wanted had some issues. She negotiated the repairs with the listing agent, and we got everything we needed fixed. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a Realtor. – Geneva M.
Sara helped us find the perfect home on the first visit! She was super-responsive all the way through the process!!! Sara worked well with our Mortgage person Sandy Batisse who worked through a 203k Federal Improvement loan for us. Everything went smoothly and Sara even knew a good contractor who was familiar with the 203k Loan process. Thank you Sara! – Celeste M.
From the beginning I knew working with Sara would be great. At our first meeting she listened so well to our needs and desires, and answered our numerous questions with tact, patience, and enthusiasm. It helps that she is a lawyer because she’s able to explain complex procedures and rules in layman’s terms. Sara was very responsive and responsible. We always felt like we were in safe and capable hands. I would highly recommend Sara to anyone looking for a house or condo in Austin. You can’t go wrong with her. – Michael M.
I have bought and sold several homes over the past several years. By far, Sara was the best agent I have ever had. She was extremely responsive. She doesn’t gloss over details. She went out of her way to make sure the transaction stayed on schedule. She also hooked me up with a mortgage broker that was able to close my loan in 28 days while most were taking 45 days or more. And because she is also an attorney, she provides a level of expertise that almost no other agent can. – Steve P.
Sara did a great job helping us buy our first house. She lined up some great properties for us to see, provided detailed market data, and assisted us in negotiating a great deal. She handled several minor issues that arose during the inspection and ensured that the closing happened within our very tight schedule. She is extremely responsive to calls and emails, even on nights and weekends. It was a pleasure to work with Sara and we highly recommend her. – Mark G.
Honestly, it’s taken me too long to write this…mainly because I have completed draft after draft, none of which ever seems to capture how wonderful/excellent/brilliant/patient/compassionate Sara was to me as I was going through the real estate process (and she continues to be my only saving grace as I lease my other condo). I teach yoga part-time and I always tell my students “effort but no struggle” and this seemed to be Sara’s approach as well. Despite highs in lows in our search, she ALWAYS kept me intact and her confidence and ease of explanation, and expectation, captured my heart and my mindset. She never let me settle, never let me get scared, never let me get frustrated and never stopped communicating about exactly what was going on and what our next step should be. She offered me kindness and peace of mind when I was at my wits end, and I never once felt any pressure or any efforts of persuasion coming from her. She worked hard to keep my mind clear and my burden light (and all this in the middle of my decision to take a new job!) And the reality is that no amount of commission could ever repay her enough for how hard she worked and how dedicated she was to me. There is not one doubt in my mind how committed Sara is to her clients and to her business. I, without any hesitation, highly recommend Sara Foskitt to you and I know without a doubt that she will be my first call the next time I think about investing in a new property. -Kandice S.
Sara was so helpful when I couldn’t decide whether to rent or sell my Austin condo before moving to New York City. When I decided to sell, she helped me stage the place so perfectly that many buyers who wanted two-bedrooms were stopping by my one-bedroom just because they were so in love with the photos. With her great connections in Austin, a buyer came along that she knew through the legal community, making the process smooth and stress-free. Her legal expertise is really key, and she’s just a nice person to boot. – Karie M.
