"Purchasing or selling a home can be one of life’s most momentous times ‐ financially, emotionally, and personally. Often, however, the excitement of these times can be overwhelmed by paperwork glitches, intransigent owners or sellers, newly uncovered repair needs, and differing opinions and preferences among family members, etc. Navigating these turbulent waters goes much smoother when an experienced and effective realtor is at your side ‐ and you won’t do better than Sarah O’Shea Munoz. Sarah is personable and patient. She knows the market, listens to your needs, and identifies options that align the two (not prices or properties that don’t). She also knows and has relationships with the myriad of players ‐ attorneys, inspectors, mortgage brokers, and general contractors, etc. ‐ that have an important role through the course of a house transaction. And, she has such a good eye for quality and décor that you get the added bonus of design consultant, too! If you are seeking to make a rough process smoother, unravel all of the complexities, tap into the best market for your purchase or sale, and have an expert always working with you and for you, Sarah O’Shea Munoz will show you the way. We just completed our third house transaction with Sarah ‐ and boy does she make us look smart for the choice. Be smart ‐ big transactions don’t have to lead to big headaches."

Dan & Cindy Strom
"We used Sarah to buy this house in 2010 and again now to sell it. We’ve now moved out of state, but we will ABSOLUTELY refer friends and family to her! Sarah is exactly what you want in a Realtor, personable yet professional. We are highly impressed with the Weichert process and cutting-edge technology as well!"

"Sarah’s energy, encouragement and optimism were the main ingredients that steered us through the stressful time of selling our home of 17 years and buying a new home. Her ability to hear what we wanted and help us find compromises when our preferences differed was integral to finding the home in which we both have been the happiest."

Ken & Sheryl Moffatt, Sellers - Oak Park
"We had a wonderful experience with Sarah O’Shea Munoz in selling our house. She was very upbeat and positive throughout the entire process. She was a big help and encouraging during our de-cluttering time. She gave much welcomed advice as we repaired and repainted in preparation to sell. She remained positive and encouraging as she negotiated with workers on our behalf. She was very thorough in giving us the comparisons to come up with an appropriate sale price. All her hard work was realized when we had 16 showings and three offers in just six days. We are thrilled with Sarah's energy and perseverance and would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the Oak Park/River Forest, IL area. Thank you, Sarah!

Susan Pinkard, Seller
"It has been a pleasure to work with Sarah O’Shea Munoz on the sale of my family home. The project offered some special challenges since I live out of state and was therefore not in a position to deal with the details of preparing the house (built by my parents in 1956) for sale. She gave excellent advice about which repairs were necessary, while minimizing the overall cost. She took charge of getting estimates and meeting tradesmen and even chose some floor tile for a room in the basement. She also worked smoothly and efficiently with the professional I hired to sort and sell or donate furniture and other items left behind by my mother. Ms. O’Shea Munoz also showed sound judgment in pricing the property: we had two offers (one for slightly more than the asking price) after the first open house In all, I cannot imagine a more positive experience with a real estate agent! Susan Pinkard, Washington DC"

Elissa Brown, Seller - River Forest
"If you want enthusiasm, professionalism, efficiency, and an excellent communicator who willl provide you with a creative and aggressive marketing strategy, then hire Sarah O’Shea Munoz as your agent. Those talents were instrumental in me obtaining an offer on my home in 5 days after listing. If you don’t want that.....then hire someone else! River Forest"

Tim & Jane Rogers, Buyers
"Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I will never forget the day we met. I was 8 months pregnant and not at all sure what I was looking for. You immediately put me at ease and gained my confidence and trust in just a few short moments. Thanks for spending so much time with us and making us feel like we were your only clients (even though we knew it wasn’t true). You really took the time to get to know Tim and me as well as our family to truly get a sense of what house would be a good fit. You were caring and concerned and so knowledgable and professional all rolled in to one; and exactly what this pregnant lady needed. Now here I am - Vivian is asleep upstairs and the boys are playing with their new friends and neighbors in the cul du sac. It’s a perfect fit and we thank you for helping us through this process! We will recommend you to our friends and stay in touch (also will let you know when we finally have the house warming party). Thank you so much for the sketch of the house. It was such a thoughtful, generous gift and will be treasured forever! Thanks again for everything and for taking a scary time in our lives and making us feel so at peace with the process. With deep gratitude- Jane, Tim, Colin, Clancy, & Vivian"

Steve & Kim Lefko, Buyers - River Forest
"Three words we would use to describe Sarah are knowledgeable, personable and patient. We were super excited to move from out of state to the Chicagoland area one decade, three homes and more importantly two young daughters later. This time we needed to live much closer to the city. Not far behind the excitement were the uncertainties on neighborhoods, schools, houses and what to expect from a near west way of life. Sarah’s vast knowledge of the communities, houses and people comes from living and raising a family here. Her answers to our questions were helpful and backed by experience. This knowledge was and continues to be invaluable to us; however, Sarah’s first order of business was gaining an understanding of our family, previous living situations and what we valued in a community and home. The time and discussions with Sarah at the outset became the basis for a trusted relationship, and before long Sarah was hunting houses through the lens of our family. Our circumstances, looking while living out of state and being unfamiliar with the area, created a slower pace and lead us through several neighborhoods and many houses. Sarah is a master of patience, and her virtues don't end there. We love our house, neighbors and community and we’re so thankful to have found Sarah O’Shea Munoz. We really are big fans of you, Sarah!"

"The furniture is here & the boxes are unpacked so I finally have a moment to say &qout;thanks&qout; for making it happen. There is simply no way it would have come together without your efforts. I know why Jim recommended you and I would be glad to do so for others in the future. For now, I look forward to sharing Oak Park with you."

"We would like to compliment you for your superlative service as you helped us find a buyer for our Oak Park family home. You have shown sensitivity and creativity throughout the selling process and have been extremely patient with our many questions.

The advance preparation you did in assessing the market, advertising to an appropriate buyer pool and helping with the staging of our home contributed to a rapid sale. You have given generously of your time and expertise. In fact, we never thought we would receive such personal attention from a Realtor. Your enthusiasm, zeal, and commitment were exceptional.

Furthermore, your willingness to help our sister find her dream Oak Park condominium eliminated a potential delay in the conclusion of the sale and made this necessary transition a positive experience for her. Please know that all you efforts in helping our family through the sale of our home and the purchase of the condominium have been greatly appreciated by all of us.

Thank you for representing our interests with such care and professionalism. Please feel free to use us as a reference."
