Smooth sailing with Sarah!

Buying and selling a home can be like weathering a storm – so, navigating with ease into a safe harbour with some fun along the way, is what I’m guessing you’re looking to do.  I love to sail - so forgive me while I continue with the analogy!

When was the last time you bought or sold a home?
For most people it was 5+ years ago and so the details and the steps you go through are all a little fuzzy! (Besides… regulations are constantly changing and so are market conditions!)  In my world, I live the details of real estate every day!

I have always believed that when you make the decision to buy or sell, these are YOUR life changing decisions and not anyone else’s.  I am there to coach, guide support you!  So, “jump on board!”  It‘s important YOU take the helm with me as your navigator and crew!   “Land ahoy!

Besides my Okanagan Lake sailing obsession (LOL!) here are 3 things about me as a quick introduction.  You will find me to be:

  1. an active partner – I am known for early mornings and some late nights too!  I truly am on call for when you need to wrestle through the big decisions.  You can call me anytime … and I will answer!
  2. a clear communicator – my previous career in marketing and account management in business was all about taking complex statistical results and helping clients to figure out what to DO with the data.  This skill is critical in real estate.
  3. a powerful negotiator – working on multi-million dollar deals in the corporate world has honed my skills to get the best deals for my clients

Moving is a high stress event for most people. When you add a death in the family to this, the stress level is exponentially greater. Sarah was so compassionate and competent in her many real estate skills that I must rate her as high as any real estate agent I've yet encountered. She helped and guided at every stage of the process and her patience was super-heroic. The sales video she made for the house was magnificent because she instinctively saw the most significant appealing aspects and highlighted them so clearly that every potential buyer would notice. Thank you Sarah - for everything. You were so great. - Bo Stager

February 21, 2024

Reply:    Hi Bo - that is a very kind review - thank you! You personally proved to be the "Elastigirl" of the deal (remember the character from the Incredibles??). You bridged between your other siblings and the needs of your Mom and the speed of the deal! Well done to you and I am so happy to have helped your Mom move to a great new place for her stage of life.

We used Sarah to purchase our first home, and came back to her to sell it and purchase a new one. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful about the selling/purchase process, and is available to chat whenever we need. She’s fantastic to chat with and super personable. Both of our purchases were complicated and she was able to roll with the punches and help us through it. - Whitney Redman

December 18, 2023

Reply:    Thanks Whitney! It's true -- we started out thinking that your criteria for purchase was going to be straight forward. I especially commend you for taking the bold step to sell first and then become stronger buyers. What we didn't expect was the difficulty to find the right place for you. We hustled whenever something with potential hit the market! And then we aggressively pursued the place you really wanted from the beginning and WON!!! I'm so happy for you and I know that place will blossom under your care!

Sarah was an absolute delight to work with, She was patient, knowledgeable, responsive. Mine was a difficult buy as there was a long close date and many issues when I moved in. However, Sarah stayed on my case the whole time and helped me through. - Carrie Kilpatrick

Reply:    Hey Carrie - I think that was a record to have a completion over a year away from the offer and then some ongoing tensions that rumbled for another 4 months!! Well done! You came through and I know you're going to love your new life in that lovely community!

I met Sarah in 2022 as a renter in a house she was selling. It was during the difficult times of houses being sold at record high numbers and no rentals available. Sarah treated my family with the utmost respect and professionalism from the moment she met us. She even tried to help us find a new home to rent! (Above and Beyond!!) Even after the deal closed and we moved, she still checked in on us to see if we were ok. Fast forward about a year, and now I'm in a position to buy my first place. I didn't even hesitate with who I wanted to help me on the next part of my journey. Sarah was amazing, she sent me multiple listings and we looked at quite a few places. She was so knowledgeable about different complexes, stratas, expectations and gave me so many pointers on things I would not even have thought about! Even helping me to stay away from places that she didn't feel would be a good long term option for me due to the issues on the properties! I never felt pressured to make a decision or an offer on anything I didn't like. When we finally found the place I bought she helped me along every step of the way, which I was so grateful for! Thank you Sarah for everything you have done for us! I know I wouldn't be writing this in my new home without you!!! - Amanda

Reply:    Thanks Ayad! You started the buying process when the market was still feverish and experienced all the ups and downs of that time. You still had a multiple offer situation when you won the house that really checked all the boxes. I can't wait for the moment when you bring the family together to Vernon and move into your picture perfect house with the picket fence!!!

Sarah Kennedy was FANTASTIC! I had a nightmare buying experience due to unforseen circumstances that are too tedious to detail, and would challenge "War an Peace" in length and tragic outcomes. Suffice to say at each of the challenges laid before me Sarah took the 'Bull by the horns' and fought for me, finding a way forward and never giving up. All the while Sarah was professional and of such high spirits that I was encouraged and energized to fight on for the home i eventually purchased: and it is perfect, and I am loving it. I couldn't be happier and Sarah played a huge part in making that happen. - Blair lischeron

Sarah is very knowledgeable and communicative throughout the whole process. It truly feels like you are her only client she is working with. She was able to work her magic and get me a better deal when the first accepted offer fell through a day before possession date. I was extremely happy with the outcome and always felt like we were making the right decision thanks to her expertise and experience. - Jillian Schochter

October 16, 2023

Reply:    Yours was one of the toughest deals in a long time. Never before have I had a deal fall through on completion day! You held it together - I don't know how! I was happy to find a way to remove past sales history, because the sale hadn't actually happened and get you a better deal! It somewhat made up for the stress! Way to go Jill!

After developing a distaste for Realtors due to past transactions Sarah did a wonderful job at renewing my faith. She was very professional but still very easy to work with and a wonderful soul. She was always on top of things, brought up points I had not considered and obviously was researching the property to make certain I knew exactly what I was purchasing. She even impressed my brother who is very rarely impressed. I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah. You won't go wrong with her as your agent. - Cathy Dunn

September 03, 2023

Reply:    Thank you so much Cathy! On the face of it things were pretty straight forward with you -- you identified the house you wanted and it was still on the market when you were ready! Easy for me --- or was it??? Then we unearthed a few things with it being so close to the creek that became very complicated!! You stuck with it and have a beautiful place as a result. Falkland is lucky to have you!

I meet sarha over a year ago when she left a card in my mail box. I had been wanting to sell my house so i contacted her and we talked. Sarha sold my property in a timely fashion and got what i was asking and a bit more. After a year of looking at properties we finally found a place that was suitable for me and she went above and beyond to help me purchase the property. I would highly recommend sarha for an agent she is wonderful and awesome to work with - Greg Kienlein

I would highly recommend Sarah Kennedy to anyone, especially first home buyers. Before buying our house, Sarah set us up with notifications from her website that alerted us whenever a home became available that fit our parameters. When we decided to buy, Sarah walked us through the entire process. There was a lot to learn, but Sarah explained what we needed to know at a our own pace and went over all the next steps clearly. With every person that we were meant to contact such as lawyers, brokers and insurance companies, Sarah provided us a with a list reputable contacts, which made the process much easier. She was available whenever we had any sudden questions and would check in periodically to ensure everything was clear and to our liking. My wife and I could not recommend her more! - Ryan Racine

Reply:    Hey Ryan and Katie - thank you for this positive review! The process for first time buyers is daunting, no question about it so I am glad my steps and thousand emails helped in learning the language and customs of real estate. You'll be all set for your next house buying venture!!

Sarah was absolutely amazing to deal with. She really went the extra mile to ensure that our first time buying experience was memorable. I would highly recommend her to anyway looking to buy or sell a home. - Sean Young

Sarah is amazing!!! Knowledgable, kind, smart, quick and efficient. Her attention to detail and organization made everything smooth and seamless. I felt well looked after, invested in and the experience itself was very low stress. She rolled with all the punches during the process. Couldn't be happier! - Alyssa Judith Therese Furneaux

May 01, 2023

Reply:    Hey Alyssa! Thanks for your kind words. That's what I love about this job -- no one purchase is like any other! Who would have guessed we would uncover that the sump pumps were not draining correctly into the City storm system and what it would take to fix that so when you come to sell in 10 or so years, someone else doesn't have to go through this bureaucratic nightmare! You and Sean rolled with the punches too!!

Sarah is amazing at getting all the info needed together so you can make decisions, but she lets you make the decisions. She is super organized and always there for you. Her energy is unbounded and she deals with less than ideal situations in a really professional and calm way. We so appreciated the work she did to make every step of the process easy and logical for us. - Kate stefanuk

Sarah Kennedy is truly exceptional. Without her efforts and expertise we would not have secured our dream home. Over several months, she assisted us with numerous showings and offers. She was consistently responsive to our near constant inquiries. She worked tirelessly for us and was patient when we changed our minds. She didn't pressure us to buy when we decided to press pause on our search and wait for more options. Sure enough, as soon as we stopped looking, we found the one - the house that ticked ALL the boxes! However, there were some major hurdles to leap in order to make it happen. Sarah fought incredibly hard for us - she gathered all the information we required to make an informed decision, she introduced us to a lender who made the financing happen, she was a fierce negotiator, she obtained a massive price reduction for us, she found a solution for every obstacle, most importantly, she just didn't quit. She had taken the time to get to know us, so she knew how perfect the property was for us - she was determined to make it happen, and she succeeded! We couldn’t be more happy with the service we received from Sarah and will definitely recommend her to everyone we know! - Brendan and Elaine Roberts - Brendan Roberts

December 29, 2022

Reply:    Wow! Thank you Brendan and Elaine! It was truly a pleasure! You're right -- there are some moments in life when THE perfect property shows up for the perfect new owners. And this was it for you both and the boys! I am soooo happy for you!

From the get-go we were very happy with the way Sarah handled our listing. She was on vacation and I think within a day or a day and a half our house was listed and the sign was up. Ever since then she's kept a very high degree of professionalism, communication, and consulting. When Sarah returned from vacation and we met her face-to-face we both found her very personable and sincere. - COLLIN NOBLE

I wish I could give Sarah 10 stars but there’s only five on this page. I’ve dealt with quite a few realtors throughout the years and Sarah was by far THE BEST. She listens, she cares, she goes the extra extra mile for you and doesn’t stop until you’re fully satisfied. I cannot recommend her enough!!!! Thank you Sarah Kennedy. - Beatrice Weir

So thankful Sarah was highly recommended by a friend. I had immense confidence and trust in Sarah from our first meeting. Selling in this changing market was a journey of many bumps and twists. She diligently researched, advised and smoothed out any worry or concerns with expertise knowledge and professionalism. Sarah is upbeat and supportive and on top of what’s needed to be put in place, addressing any pitfalls immediately. She is very respected by external peers and professionals alike. I will not hesitate to recommend Sarah as there could not have been anyone else I would have preferred to travel this journey with. - Brenda Minaker

October 16, 2022

Reply:    Thank you for those kind words Brenda. Your sale happened at a very challenging time in the market, plus who would have known we would uncover a very unique legal issue? You bravely confronted everything with a "let's get it done right" attitude. You even bought an entire new oven for your buyers when just one burner needed adjustment! Way to go girl!

Sarah was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout our whole process of selling and endeavouring to buy, but ultimately deciding to wait. She was patient with us when we changed our minds several times and explored different options. She assisted us in considering the idea of a buying a MASSIVE fixer upper. After realizing it was not the right time for us to embark on that project, she remained available and diligent as we continued our search. When we ultimately decided to sell and wait before buying, her knowledge and advice enabled us to feel confident in our negotiations and satisfied with the end result. We will absolutely ask her to be our realtor again in the future! - Elaine and Brendan Roberts

Sarah was the best realtor I have ever had and I have done numerous transactions. I felt I could trust her and she stayed in touch after the sale/purchase for followup of any issues or concerns. I highly recommend her and I have already done so. It was a pleasure working with her. She is truly the best; a real treasure in this crazy world as she helped me to navigate through some particularly confusing and stressful situations. I absolutely adore ❤ her!!! - Bonnie Anderson

Reply:    Steady on there!!! Hilarious! We weathered some crazy storms and disappointments - no doubt about it. From the unit that was perfect if it not were the fact that parking was not allowed (??) to your chosen unit that decided to increase strata fees by 16% on the day before you took possession!! You took it all on board and stayed determined! Thank you for being so easy to communicate with which is 90% of the battle!

Sarah was very professional, developed a strong sales strategy and provided market and listing advice and support ongoing. Sarah also developed a positive relationship with the renters who were required to leave at the end of their lease which was very helpful.

As first time buyers, Sarah really walked us through the whole process. Sarah's knowledge was invaluable and she was always quick to respond to any questions. Sarah's transparency and authenticity quickly earned our trust and we truly felt that she was looking out for our interests. Although the process was stressful at times, Sarah helped us navigate through it and we even had some laughs along the way. I would absolutely recommend Sarah Kennedy to anyone looking for an excellent realtor. - Sarah This was our first time buying and we're new to the whole process. Any time we started to feel overwhelmed Sarah was there to get us back on track feeling at ease and moving things forward. Her great sense of humour and positive attitude clearly come to her naturally and it makes all the difference. With her exceptional knowledge of the local market and ability to strategize we always knew there would be no stone left unturned in our search. We’re very grateful to have been able to work with her and won’t hesitate to call her again. - Darryl - Sarah & Darryl

Sarah guided me through the sale of my lakeview lot in Vernon. Made more difficult by the fact that it was long distance as I live in Prince George. From our first communication Sarah was nothing but professional, while also being very real and easy to work with. She explained each phrase of the process until I felt very comfortable with everything. Sarah advised and guided me through every aspect from setting a price to countering on offers. She gave me the information and confidence to make all the correct decisions. Thank you Sarah, Pierre - Pierre Bergeron

Sarah worked vigorously with me for a year we searched Vernon.. Mara lake.. Sicamous.. west Kelowna.. I had estate problems I could not buy until a year later ( this was unexpected) we then kept searching these areas for anything I thought could be a possibility.. it was during a difficult time to purchase we were faced with multiple biding wars which I did not want to get involved in.. some home sold within hours of listing I had no chance.. Sarah took time with me to show me everything from condos.. to cabins to houses .. Sarah recommended areas I never heard of.. I wasn’t sure which road I wanted to take.. being a single lady I decided no strata fees some were quite high & it was scary if some would need upgrades down the road and I would have to put our lots of money.. In the end I decided to look a couple hours away .. Sarah offered to refer me to that area specialist as she did not know the market well enough she felt for me to get my monies worth in value . Sarah answered st my phone calls.. texts..emails promptly.. clearly & professionally making sure my questions or concerns were answered in detailed replies.. Sarah carried her own flash lite and went into attics and basement crawl spaces & made note of anything she didn’t like or understand and directed these to professionals for answers it was like she was buying the house for herself.. Sarah ride a roller coaster with me for over a year always offering alternative solutions if the path we were taking hit a dead end.. If you look up the words “ Above & Beyond beside them should be engraved “ Sarah” - Heather

Sarah recently sold my single family investment house. She arranged absolutely everything from gutter cleaning to septic pump-out, keeping me well informed of the step by step progress. Sarah suggested I have the property inspected before going to market, and this proved very strategic. Buyers came to the table with offers quickly, and no subject to inspection. Sarah's gentle manner with the tenant was appreciated and made for very cooperative showings. I would hire Sarah in a heart-beat. A true pleasure to do business with her. - Kitty Brodie

Sarah was great to work with - not only very knowledgable and detailed in her work, she found out our priorities and helped us to show us properties that we could seriously consider.

I found that Sarah was very comfortable and professional to deal with. She went out of her way to find the property’s that I would be interested in. She was very Thurrell and well Knowledged of the listing available. I would highly recommend using Sarah as your realtor she will find you the dream home you’re looking for. She did a great job trying to find me my dream home,but unfortunately we just couldn’t find that right place. I was kept up to up to date on all the resent listings, she even managed to find me some places that weren’t even in the listings. Highly recommend Sarah Kennedy to be your realtor, you will not be disappointed, she’ll get the job done. Give her a call. - Dave Kohnert
