real estate testimonial"Sarah Sitar is the best agent out there!! We had been interviewing other agents. We met Sarah at an open house she was hosting. I shared a list of homes that looked interesting and the details about each home that we liked. One agent told us we could never own a home for $560K, another brought us to see the houses on the list, and Sarah said "Yes I looked at your list and I'm going to show you some other ones that I think you might find more interesting." She is gracefully competitive. Very on top of her game. She has a great eye and genuinely wants to find you the best place she can. She doesn't just want to sell you a house - she wants to establish a relationship that lasts. She has helped us in various ways since we purchased our home in 2010 including: helping us find a cabinet maker, a tile guy, a carpet cleaner and so much more. She has come to our birthday parties, brought gifts for our kids - seriously coolest agent out there. She has even helped my in-laws find a place. I cannot say enough great things about Sarah. She's the best!"

I would highly recommend meeting with Sarah if you are considering buying or selling a home. Sarah represented us in the sale of our condo and subsequent purchase of our first house and helped us to turn a profit on our sale and get a great deal on our purchase.

Sarah brings a great balance of professionalism and friendly customer service to her clients. If we asked a question we received a detailed and well thought out answer, but at the same time, felt like we were driving around with a good friend looking at houses together.

We will definitely work with Sarah Sitar on any future real estate deals.

My husband and I have three very small children (all 3 and under) and knew we were going to need more space. We decided to contact Sarah since she is the go-to person for selling a place in our area of Costa Mesa (bluffs off of Pacific Ave). From our first meeting, Sarah came prepared with comparable sales and a wealth of information for how to get our place ready to sell. She went out of her way to ensure that we had a great starting point for staging the condo for the open house. We had good traffic the first week and received an offer within that time frame. Sarah was reassuring and on top of coordinating everything we needed to get accomplished to ensure we would be able to close on this place and the new home we were buying around the same time. She worked closely with our buying agent and always checked in on how the buying process was going. She is very friendly and funny (we needed someone with a sense of humor) and I couldn't imagine having gone through this process without a quality realtor such as Sarah. Thanks again, Sarah!

I have been working with/for Sarah as a hauling and demo contractor for over 7 years! She is always on top of her game. She has always been honest and fair with me on every project and has referred me to many others. She usually hires me as a hauling contractor as one of her services she offers her customers. She seems to always go above and beyond to help her clients sell a home by prepping it properly for the sale and also in making the purchase and move in a smooth process! She even helped me get my home remodification on my residence during the recession. It was nice to have her help and not need to hire a lawyer. She is a great local resident and Realtor. We would definitely use her for a future sale or purchase of our home!

client reviews



Sarah Sitar is the perfect example of a real estate professional. She is knowledgeable in her practice of real estate and has outstanding customer service. Sarah represented us as a seller and buyer of our new home. I can't thank her enough on how she handled both of our transactions. She displays incredible amount of poise when she negotiates and her years of experience helps her on closing transactions. I actually nickname her the "closer" for her impeccable record of sales of real estate. My wife and I would recommend Sarah in a heartbeat to our family, friends and co-workers. My rating for Sarah would be off the charts a true real estate professional in all aspects.

"I had excellent experience selling my home with Sarah Sitar. It was actually pretty pain less and easy. The communication was clear, conscience and simple. The process of selling a home can be overwhelming and scary. Sarah made me at ease comfortable, secure & with the decisions we made on pricing, open house dates and suggestions preparing my home for selling. I would suggest her to anyone selling a home ! Especially in this area of Costa Mesa. She certainly knows the market. She went above & beyond what her job required and I appreciated that. She was easy to get a hold of and responded quickly anytime I called. This left no question un-answered and increased my confidence in the selling process. First Team has a super star in Sarah. Because this is the third realtor I have dealt with, I can honestly say the process with Sarah was A+"

If you need a real estate agent we recommend Sarah Sitar 100 percent!  She helped us buy a home in Costa Mesa and did a fantastic job.  From day one Sarah was on it!  She listened to our wants, stayed in constant communication and showed us anything we were interested in.  She has a great personality, is super dedicated and great to work with.  

Other realtors that we met at open houses had discouraged us from using our VA loan as it can be seen as a complication to potential sellers.  When we discussed with Sarah our options she immediately encouraged us to use the VA loan.  She was confident that she could work with other realtors/sellers and show them we were good prospective buyers.

We were house shopping in a sellers market and the house we wanted had other bids.  We got the house and Sarah expertly guided us through the buying process. When you are making the biggest purchase of your life you need someone that knows what they are doing.  Sarah is that person she made sure everything went smoothly and we are so thankful!  

Sarah gave us great referrals for our remodel. She is a wealth of information and has tons of contacts.  She is taking interior design classes so if you are selling your home she could give you expert advice on staging.  She can also help you see the potential in a new home.  There are so many more reasons we could recommend Sarah but we will stop here and just say she is proactive, knows what she is doing and is someone you can depend on!

Sarah helped me purchase a home in the Costa Mesa / Huntington Beach area.  She is extremely knowledgable in all aspects of real estate, and made the transaction smooth from beginning to end.  I highly recommend using her for your real estate needs.  She will definitely be my realtor when I'm ready to sell/buy again.

When my mother moved to Huntington Beach in 2005 Sarah was the real estate agent I chose to work with to help find a home for her near me. I am not kidding when I say that we must have looked at everything on the market at that time that was in Mom's price range before settling on a property at Huntington Landmark (Senior Community). I was exhausted, but Sarah was so easy and fun to work with.

Recently my mom passed away and I needed to sell her home. I chose Sarah, not only because I knew I could trust her, but also because she's so enjoyable to work with, and really knows the market in this area. Besides that, I wanted to reward her for her patience in showing my mom so many properties when she was in the market to buy in 2005. Sarah recommended a good painter and made some other suggestions for minor repairs to the property at a reasonable price. The home was placed on the market in mid January and closed and funded on February 26th. Based on the comps that I reviewed very carefully, the list price that Sarah recommended looked good to me so I went with it. But we actually sold the property for $5,000 more than the listing. I don't know what to make of that, maybe we priced it a little low but we were happy with the easy process and the quick outcome. I like that Sarah is not a high pressure real estate sales salesperson,  She's got plenty of experience and has a straightforward easy-going nature.
