REALTOR®, GREEN, CMRS
The Smallwood Team
Sarah’s interest in real estate began more than 12 years ago when she bought her first home. She saw how the process could be streamlined and how problems could be avoided in what can be a time-consuming and stressful endeavor. She earned her REALTOR® designation in 2005. Since then, she’s built a reputation on putting the concerns of her clients first, starting with finding them the ideal home for their needs and wants, and following through on every aspect of the transaction. Her commitment to sellers is the same.
Her years of experience allow her keep calm in tense situations and navigate forward on behalf of her clients. She’s also handled many technically challenging transactions with success, and carries over that level of dedication with the research she does regarding any property. She and her partner, Neal, research the available information about a target property, which lets them anticipate any hurdles for their clients before they become roadblocks.
Sarah’s background as a founding member of a local boutique real estate brokerage and a commercial contracting group prepared her for managing a wide range of personalities. She learned to create situations where parties are treated equitably. This is especially important and valuable in real estate because almost everyone in the transaction has a different background, a different level of experience and, often times, different expectations.
As a REALTOR®, she continues to push herself to serve her clients better. For example:

Neal has been part of the real estate industry since 2008, as both an investment-property owner and a mortgage professional. With this background, he understands the lending process and how he can help his clients can make this necessary step easier on themselves. His first home-buying experience wasn’t a positive one, so he also knows how things can go wrong and the steps he can take to look out for his clients.

Sarah holds a degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and has advanced professional training from a variety of organizations. Neal holds a degree from Lyndon State. They enjoy cooking and eating tasty food, running with the dog, and participating in area triathlons and festivals.
