Sarah Langum has been a broker for over three years but her passion for real estate began at a very young age. One of her favorite summer activities was going to view open houses with her aunt while she was visiting her in Mansfield, Texas, and she also spent time during her high school years shadowing a realtor and learning the nuances of the industry. Her professional career has included 14 years in customer service and a position as the marketing director for a mortgage company, all of which has helped her build important skills for her work in real estate sales. Sarah’s experience with mortgages has provided her with an understanding of how to read rate trends, the details of specific loan programs, and the effectiveness of certain listing strategies, which gives her clients an advantage in the competitive Chicago markets. Her strong sense of customer service also allows her to work closely with all of her clients, guiding them with empathy and thorough communication through the entire process of buying or selling a home. A resident of Chicago for the past eight years and currently of the Gold Coast neighborhood, Sarah has a great deal of expertise within the River North area but makes a point of learning all she can about not only Chicago’s other neighborhoods but the outlying Chicago suburbs as well. She specializes in relocation rentals and with helping first-time home buyers, and is always willing to learn more about any Chicagoland area where her clients wish to buy or sell property. Sarah’s ability to remain patient, honest, and engaged during each transaction has helped her forge lasting relationships with her clients and build her business through their positive referrals. Outside of her work in real estate, Sarah is an active volunteer as a Coordinator for the outreach team at her local church and as a member of the YWCA Future Leaders Council. She is also working on establishing a new housing-related nonprofit organization, Dream Tree Development, which will be focused on providing fully furnished low-income housing for eligible families throughout Chicago. Each of these units will feature space dedicated to the educational success of the students in the home. If you’re ready to enter the housing market, Sarah is ready to provide you with the best possible real estate service. Call her today!
