Testimonials

We had a great experience working with Sarah and her team. They were professional and attentive. Sarah helped us decide what to update and fix, and what not to. We had a visit within three hours of listing, and the offer we accepted first thing the next morning.

Sarah Bernard and her team did a great job in selling our home

Teresa L

My husband and I highly recommend Sarah Bernard and her team for their professionalism in taking care of our home sale. They were prompt in taking care of all of our needs during the sales process. Whether it be questions about the process or referrals for repairs they were on the ball. We chose Sarah for her knowledge of the Innsbrook market as well as the St. Louis market. The reason she has a stellar reputation was proven with us. Thank you, Sarah and team!

Sue O

Wonderful experience . So nice working with such an orderly intelligent individual. She doesn’t miss a beat and is extremely responsive. Wish we could clone...

Gloria B

After having our Innsbrook property on the market for 18 months with another realtor, we switched to Sarah--and what a difference! She was "on it" from the get-go, and with fresh new pictures and magic advertising, the property sold at asking price on the first day it was officially on the market! Sarah was professional and very pleasant to work with, and her office team kept me both informed and on-track. We no longer live in the area, but if we did, and if we needed to buy or sell property, Sarah would be my first call!

Kathy C

Sarah Bernard is a very knowledgeable real estate professional. We relied on her expertise when choosing a property to purchase at Innsbrook because we had limited knowledge of that area. When it came time to sell our property we relied again on Sarah's accurate recommendations for that process. She and her team of dedicated professionals were a tremendous help to bring both transactions to a successful close. Everyone, including Sarah, was willing to quickly respond to any questions that you might have during the process. After the sale of our property concluded Sarah made you feel as if you were part of the Red Key "family" and offered the same consideration and professionalism for future real estate needs. In our case we have the distinct pleasure of considering Sarah a good friend, as well as other team members. We can't imagine working with anyone else or any other company for our real estate needs. She deserves a million stars for her rating!!!

Mary Lee M

Sarah and team. Thank you for making this transaction as smooth as possible considering the challenges from the buyer and his agent. It was great working with you.

It has been my pleasure to work with all the Sarah Bernard staff. From day one meeting with Sarah, each has done their best to take care of the sale of my property giving me the peace of mind that real professionals are in charge.

Everything was professionally handled. Difficult conversations were made easy. Very good experience and would recommend Sarah as a great agent to buy or sell your house.

Jaun Carlos S

Without reservation we can recommend Sarah Bernard when selling a property. Her marketing background shows through when devising a plan for the sale of your property. All of her suggestions for painting and staging paid off with showings and offers. Her team was able to accomplish updates in an expeditious manner. Sarah was always very responsive to any questions we had. We felt very comfortable with her and her team, which was imperative as we were 5000 miles away.

Maureen P

Linda F

I would strongly recommend Sarah and her team to sell your home. They provided a good balance of professionalism and personal support throughout the process, which took longer than expected in my case. They offered good recommendations for contractors to do needed repairs/updates and followed up with those contractors to make things easier for me. They consistently responded in a timely fashion when I made contact by phone, e-mail, or text. When there were bumps in the road, Sarah worked with me in a calm, reassuring manner, which was much appreciated. I always felt like she was on top of the situation with our house and gave it the attention needed, despite her busy schedule.

Karen S

Sarah and her team make you feel like you are their most important client. For first-time house sellers, Sarah patiently answered questions and addressed all our concerns. Her marketing skills are so valuable. Our neighbors appreciated the thoughtful communication she provided them as well. I would recommend Sarah and her team to all my friends and family.

Abby E. - Seller

Sarah Bernard did a great job with the sale of our Innsbrook Property. It would not have happened without her hard work.

Steve & Sara H

Sarah and her team were wonderfully supportive in a difficult sale. They help us through problems, that they did not cause.

Doug & Hope K

Sarah was very organized, understanding, helpful, compassionate. She responded quickly to concerns that i had and offered solutions. Selling my house was an excellent experience with Sarah.

Phyllis K

We have known Sarah for several years. She is always very professional, easily accessible whenever we reached out to her for help and advice. She also has a calming manner when a client becomes overwhelmed! Sarah is a great resource person for handyman repairs, or any help needed to prepare your home for sale. We would highly recommend Sarah and her team for any real estate needs.

Tom & Carol C

Sarah has been an outstanding agent and guide as we navigated the sale of a unique home at Innsbrook. We were able to find not one, but two buyers on an open house weekend, and sell our property for well over the average price of chalets on our lake. Sarah had an excellent marketing plan and promoted our home across all platforms and media. She communicated regularly, always listened and promptly replied to our questions. We couldn't be happier with the selection of Sarah her professional Red Key team to sell our home. Five Stars!

Ellen R

I could not have asked for an agent to pursue the sale of my house with more expertise and determination. She gave me sound advice, was always available to answer my questions, and sold my house within a reasonable length of time. Sarah and her team always treated me with kindness and professionalism.

Anne W

My mother interviewed two realtors to sell her chalet at Innsbrook, and clearly The Red Key Sarah Bernard Team was selected by significant margins! Sarah’s path to sale was well planned and executed. Every detail from planning, to staging and marketing made the process seamless. Sarah is a true professional and we cannot say enough about her rapport and level of service during the process. The entire team was very well organized even down to the limo ride on the day of the closing. It was like we had a combination of personal assistants and concierge! We would recommend Sarah for everyone’s real estate needs.

Paul & Deon H

Sarah is the BEST! Don’t call anyone else if you want what feels like undivided attention, attention to detail and, most importantly, results.

Suzanne V

If you are looking for fair and honest representation in selling your property at Innsbrook, but don’t want to use the Innsbrook sales office, Sarah Bernard is the person for you! Sarah knows Innsbrook because she has property there and she knows all the ins and outs of what it takes to get a property sold in the community. Sarah was always in touch with us and responded promptly to any and all questions. Never once did we wonder how the property was being viewed/rated as Sarah made sure we were aware of all activity and comments. Sarah and her team did such a good job with making sure our chalet showed exceptionally well that it was on the market less than a week and we had an offer and the eventual sale! We could not be happie

Andrea & Tim C

Sarah made the entire process of selling the house a true pleasure! Her knowledge of the area and her negotiation skills are top notch. She was always available whenever we had a question, and her explanations were always very helpful. Her expertise in navigating the entire selling process also was excellent, and was vital to completing the sale. I would highly recommend her.

Craig R

I have had the privilege to work with Sarah on several buying experiences. Sarah was an absolute pleasure to work with. Upon starting this process we new going into this building process that the house we were building and designing was going to be a spec house. As a sellers agent Sarah again exceeded my expectations. She provided continual advise as well as came to several meetings to give feedback on design and materials that were being considered for the house. Sarah is an expert in the Innsbrook vacation real estate market. Her commitment to relationships with fellow agents, owners and buyers sets her clients up for success. It has been a pleasure working with Red Key especially Sarah.

Jason & Kelly C

Sarah always does a great job. This is the third time we worked together on a real estate transaction and I always have the best experience. She is professional and eager to help and great when it comes to negotiating. I recommend her to all my friends and family.

Santa P

I had an outstanding experience with Sarah Bernard and her team at Red Key. They were responsive, knowledgeable, proactive and thorough. I would call upon them again to sell a home.

Lynda S

The experiences in selling two properties through Sarah were good learning experiences. Selling property is not something we do everyday, so it was wonderful to be able to rely on creative, hard-working professionals like Sarah Bernard and her team.

Laura F

Sarah help me thru the process of selling my property. She is so very knowledgeable about the area. She told me that my property will be SOLD, and it was. I thank GOD for putting her in my path. To a very successful life Sarah, because she will have very much success in life. I will look to see you on BRAVO Show “Millionaire Listings “

Rachel B

Sarah was an absolute joy to work with. She answered our questions immediately, precisely, and thoughtfully! Always a true professional and such a very sweet and kind person. She even gave us a gift at closing! Would definitely recommend her for any one’s real estate needs.

Tammy & Mike S

Sarah and her team handled the sale of our home (and our purchase too) with expertise and professionalism. We were nervous about our higher asking price, but received a full asking, 3 week close, all-cash offer on the first day! We couldn’t have been more pleased with her guidance in preparing the house for the sale and finding the right price. Well done Sarah!

Jan D

Sarah was referred to us by a friend. This was my best real estate experiences. To further impress upon her professionalism we had a glitch the day we were supposed to close. Even through the glitch she maintained positive, professional and worked as hard as she could to resolve the glitch. It is easy to be great when things run smooth. You find out how great someone is when it doesn’t run perfect.
I would highly recommend Sarah and her team.

Jason & Kelly C

Sarah is the most competent and conscientious Real Estate Agent I have ever worked with. She has helped me on three real estate transactions and in all cases got the job done quickly and professionally. Real estate transactions are never easy and it is not uncommon for problems to arise. Sarah knows how to deal with the issues and keep everyone on an emotional even keel. That is a real skill, and one that is important in real estate. She is also extremely fair and realistic. I can’t recommend Sarah enough. She is a true professional.

Diane M

Sarah Bernard is the consummate real estate professional. She spent time with me getting to know what my likes and dislikes were, as well as the type of neighborhood I was seeking. Sarah is knowledgeable about different neighborhoods in the St. Louis area.
Sarah helped me find my new residence and sell my old one. She listened to my concerns and my hopes, and took them into considerations as we went through each process. She was patient as she guided me through both of these experiences.
She is awesome!

Mary Ann G

Sarah is an exceptional realtor! She made our property sale easy from start to finish. She arranged beautiful marketing materials, promoted our property, led us through extended negotiations and brought us a great final price on our property. Sarah goes out of her way to help with every aspect of the sales transaction. We were selling an Innsbrook home, and she is exceptionally knowledgeable about that market. We were very grateful to have Sarah represent us!

Susan J

Our experience with Sarah Bernard was excellent. She had in depth knowledge of our market area, gave us good advice on preparing our property and was always in communication with us. We appreciated all the feedback on each showing, positive and negative. In addition, she made sure our property was in good shape for each showing which was very important, since it was a weekend home, in the forest and needed some preening before each showing. She brought us good clients and in the end, we were very happy with our sale. I recommend Sarah for all these reasons.

Aaron & Nancy N

She knew the market well and was aware of correct pricing. She was very helpful in correct staging and had professional photography. We always received prompt response to any calls. Overall, we had a pleasant and professional experience.

Sazanne G.

Sarah is terrific! She was committed to the sale of our home in an efficient and professional manner! I would use her services again in a heartbeat!

Michelle & Jamie H

From beginning to end, Sarah was professional, personable, knowledgeable, responsive, and unflappable. She and her team were invaluable to me, not only in the marketing and showing of my home, but also in helping me with the paper work, repairs, and financial matters involved in selling a property.
Sarah was recommended to me by another extremely satisfied client. I am so glad I took the advice and chose Sarah to represent me.

Steve R

I cannot recommend Sarah highly enough. She’s everything you’d want an agent to be: friendly, responsive, patient, professional. Did I say responsive? It takes a certain skill to allow one’s client to feel as he’s the agent’s sole client. Sarah has that skill. We love Sarah!

Suzanne V

Sarah came to us as referral from a neighbor, who is also an agent, because of her expertise with properties in Innsbrook, MO. Sarah is top notch, A+ and the BEST for service to us!

Bill & Suzanne V

Sarah represented my spouse and me in the purchase of a home in Wildwood, MO. Sarah was absolutely superb in all aspects of the process and made for a very positive experience. Her communication skills and timely responsiveness to our inquiries were most impressive. This has been the best of the many real estate transactions we’ve made thanks to Sarah. We hold her in high regard and have no reservations in recommending her to our friends.

Jeff M

Sarah was great from the first phone call through the last at close. She was always available and immediately responsive to questions or concerns. She would be the first one I go to the next time I am purchasing/selling a home

Richard H

We had our chalet at Innsbrook on the market with another agency for three years and had a handful of people look at it and no offers. We changed to Sarah Bernard and it sold in 7 months! She helped us list it at a good price and helped us negotiate the offered price to almost our full amount! We had many repairs to make in a short amount of time after we accepted the sellers terms. Sarah knew who to call and the contractors were there within a couple of days. She even kept up with the whole process when she was on her personal vacation. Sarah’s expertise is second to none and I would gladly have her as our agent any time. What a dynamite of an agent!!

Linda N

We are so grateful we found Sarah to help guide us through this adventure. She was spot-on in finding us exactly what we were looking for. She listened to us, paid attention to our wish list and found properties she knew would fit the bill. We highly recommend her to anyone in the St. Louis area, or Innsbrook. We couldn’t have been treated better and plan to call her again when the time comes!

Julie C

Sara is a no nonsense salesperson. She was relentless in finding a buyer. She was very thorough in her analysis of other properties that allowed us to adjust to the appropriate asking price. I highly recommend her.

Dan R

Can’t say enough positive about Sarah and her team. Our chalet had been on the market for 3.5 years without even a contract. We signed the listing with Sarah on Tues. and left for spring break. That Sun. Sarah called with an offer. She helped us through the negotiation and then with all the details to a successful closing within 6 weeks. Much of this was worked out while we were out of town, including in Asia, so she understands all facets of the process and made it seamless for us.

JOHN & CAROL R

We purchased a secondary residence in 2014 where Sarah was the agent for the seller. She acted as an agent for both the seller and us in the sale. We were extremely pleased with her professionalism and knowledge of the business as well as her ability to offer expertise while remaining neutral to both parties. We were so impressed with her that we listed our other secondary residence with her knowing that the property was in a difficult market where property moves slowly. She has gone so many extra steps that have made the process easy and successful. With these two sales now behind us we would use her again and recommend her to anyone needing a true professional that is a delight to work with.

Terry & Candace S

Sarah did a wonderful job helping us sell our vacation home. The most unique aspect of this sale was that it was done long distance….thus, there were many, many telephone calls and emails. Sarah handled it all with the aplomb of a seasoned professional. We can not say enough about the outstanding job she did with having our belongings from the house shipped to us. We thank her very much for all her hard work.

Marvin & Barbara B

Sarah worked very hard to help me find the perfect house. Even though she has many clients, Sarah made me feel as I was her only client. When issues arose in the selling of my home in Atlanta Sarah worked with my agent there to help complete the sale of my home. Her service continues after my purchase. She has a vast community of contractors and other very helpful contacts to get you started in your new home. Sarah made my home buying experience an easy exciting time. I highly recommend her for your home buying or selling needs!!!

Jim G

Sarah created a wonderful structure for me as a tool to provide guidance and clarity during the beginning steps of the sales process. She requested that I create a specific list of the characteristics I was seeking in my new home while giving me great guidance about prepping my existing home for sale. She was knowledgeable about the prevailing market; establishing the right listing price, most importantly. She took the steps to ensure a FAST sale by creating excellent marketing tools and following up with every visitor in my home. She sold my home in under a month within 5% of my asking price! Amazing work!

Kris K

Our home was located in a gated community on the golf course. We contracted with what we felt was the best realtor for our situation. That proved not to be a correct assumption. After 10 months we had only received two “low ball” offers. I had some contact with Sarah while still under contract with our original realtor. We decided that it was time to give Sarah the opportunity to list our home. We reassessed our position and with her guidance, we determined that our home was overpriced. We adjusted the price. Our house showed well with pictures taken by our agent. Sarah, at her own expense, brought in a professional photographer to take a new set of pictures. What a difference! The house sold in two months at a price that worked for us. Sarah brings to the table new and fresh ideas.

Don & Rachel M

I’ve had other agents say to me “if you want to sell the house, just lower the price!” But that’s a sign of a lazy agent. Sarah isn’t like that at all. She worked very hard to get my house sold and get me a good price in a timely manner. She used the latest technology to advertise, and assertively contacted other agents to get my home in front of them. She followed up on EVERYTHING, especially after a showing. She addressed issues that came up in the feedback, and worked with me to make needed changes to make the home more appealing to buyers. Sarah is conscientious, a trait that is hard to find in a real estate agent. Sarah helped me sell a home in Florissant in 2014, and it sold during the Ferguson unrest. If that isn’t a sign of a good agent, I don’t know what is.

Daine & Eric

Have you worked with Sarah Bernard before and want to write a testimonial on their behalf?
