Sara thoroughly enjoys helping her clients achieve their real estate goals, whether buying their dream home or selling their current residence. Each real estate transaction is different, and she loves the challenges that this industry presents. As a Colorado Native, Sara has firsthand experience with the various neighborhoods, schools and areas in both the city of Denver and its surrounding communities. She couples her extensive neighborhood knowledge with her marketing expertise, transactional skills and industry experience to help her clients make smart real estate decisions. Working with Sara you will find she cares deeply about you, your interests, drives and goals, and treats each property search or listing as if it were her own.
Growing up in Golden, Colorado, Sara has called Colorado home for most of her life. She attended Texas Christian University, earning a B.S. in Business Administration (Marketing) and obtained an MBA from the University of Colorado, Denver. After a successful career managing luxury real estate portfolios in the hospitality industry, Sara followed her passion and became a full-time real estate broker. She has had her real estate license since 2009.
When Sara is not working, she loves spending time with her husband James and her son exploring all that Colorado offers. Most mornings you can find her either trail running near her home in the foothills of Denver or at the neighborhood coffee shop. She likes to lead a healthy lifestyle and pursues running, hiking and yoga, but also enjoys checking out the hottest restaurants.
"We were looking to make an interstate move from Illinois to Colorado, and Sara Lynn came highly recommended from a high-profile realtor in Chicago. Sara immediately got to know us and our style, and we put forth a fairly challenging wish list; vintage home, walkability, proximity to our work and family in Denver and of course the budget we wanted to stay in. Over the course of the next nine months, Sara diligently previewed homes, walking through them with us on video as most of the time we were still in Chicago. She was honest in her assessments, telling us where to be cautious and what simply would not work for us. The property we'd finally selected was an unorthodox purchase in Capitol Hill; a historic home with its own quirks, and dealing with an agent who was also the owner presented its own challenges. Sara stayed steady with our parameters in working out compromises with the seller, and covered every aspect of the purchase with research, documentation and pragmatism. To say that Sara provided a boutique buying experience is an understatement; we genuinely feel she went above and beyond to ensure we got the house we wanted on our terms, which is saying a lot given Denver's ultra-competitive market. She displayed patience, tact and congeniality during a very lengthy and arduous buying process, and made our move to Denver that much less stressful. We cannot recommend her highly enough."
"Sara is simply the best! Sara was knowledgable, prepared, informative and most of all, much better at finding our home than we were. Sara took our hands, navigated us thru the wonderful world of home purchasing and became a terrific friend as well. If you are looking to purchase a home, you will be kicking yourself for working with anyone else. Thank you Sara!!!"
"I do not even know where to begin with the amazing that is Sara Lynn. It was suggested by a friend that we contact Sara for our house buying needs, and we are so incredibly glad that we did.
We were living in Santa Barbara while looking for a home and needed serious hand holding while we searched not only for the perfect home, but also the perfect region, neighborhood, school and vibe that would become our new residence.
We flew to Colorado and met Sara for the first of a few home tour trips. From the very first moment we met, it was immediate that she was going to be more than perfect. Sara arrived right on time, had neighborhood maps, information, homes categorized by style and even cold bubble water waiting for us in the car. Much like a first date, we got to know each other quite quickly. We gave her as much information about what type of home we were wanting (rancher) the type of schools we wanted (the best elementary possible) and the vicinity desired (West of Denver). Not only did she know the areas well, but had such amazing insight that we could just sit back and let her take us from home to home.
At every home we toured, she was able to point out things we would have never noticed. Things that we would not even know to look for in a Colorado home. Roof tiles, soil and settlement issues, traffic and park locations. All of which are brand-new to folks like us.
As we narrowed our search from our home computer 1100 miles away, Sara would do FaceTime walk throughs for us. Sometimes live, and sometimes we would find narrated videos in our email. All the narration was specific, especially her desire to be a better cinematographer.
One fateful morning, my wife sent Sara a text asking about a specific address. Sara responded almost immediately that she would get to the address as quickly as possible for a drive of the neighborhood as well as to make an appointment to see the inside. Not an hour later she reported back that the house was simply terrific! Great neighborhood, close to parks, schools, shopping, the works!
Next came more handholding as she assisted us in coming up with the smartest and most competitive offer while at the same time not letting us be taken advantage of. She had helped us find the best lender and the best inspector.
Our offer completed, turned in and accepted, she was not even close to finished. She helped us with the inspection, the appraisal, and even how to deal with the seller on items we felt should be taken care of before closing.
Now that the house is ours, we know that Sara will be in it often as an amazing friend and spectacular part of our new lives in Colorado."
"Sara was amazing! She worked hard to find the perfect home for us, even if that meant long weekend drives. She was always available to answer questions and was always there to help with the sometimes challenging process of buying and selling. Sara went out her way to entertain our daughter as well. She was a blessing to work with."
"Sara Lynn helped sell my condo in Boulder and my overall experience was definitely a 10! The real estate process can be complicated and stressful. Sara’s professional real estate knowledge and calm demeanor helped guide me throughout the process. I’m so grateful for her help and absolutely would recommend her to my friends."
"Sara Lynn at Porchlight is fantastic and our experience with PorchLight was excellent. My wife and I feel very fortunate that we randomly met Sara at an open house and hired her to be our agent. She was tremendous in helping us both sell our condo in LoHi and buy our new house. She is incredibly personable and detail oriented and always very quick to respond to any questions. She also has great referrals for contractors and helped us find a great lending agent, Tenby Dahman. I would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. Thank you for all of your work, Sara! We really appreciate it and enjoyed getting to know you."
"Sara is phenomenal! She guided us every step of the way and added insight and advice that went beyond what we've experienced with other realtors.
Sara offered her honest opinions and made sure that our builder delivered all that they said they would (and more). We benefited from her patience, persistency and knowledge in so many ways!"
