Sarah Bentley Pearson has a passion for design and homes which led her to begin selling houses in Atlanta in 2005. Sarah is originally from the Washington D.C. area and has lived in East Berlin, Germany, New York City and briefly in Birmingham, Alabama, before settling in Atlanta in 2001.
When Sarah and her ex-husband moved to Atlanta they searched and searched for a home with "good bones." After a long, arduous search on her own, the realization came - why can't I find a REALTOR® who understands what I want? It was during this thought process that the realization came that she should do this herself! Her mother owns several investment properties in Chevy Chase, Maryland; Baltimore, Maryland; Silver Spring, Maryland and Manhattan, New York. When she was in middle school she was helping her mother find new properties and improve them. Sarah's motto is: work as hard as you would as if it were your own!
After Sarah committed to becoming a REALTOR®, she scored at the top of her class on her licensing and state exam. Sarah then went on to become a member of the Atlanta Board of REALTORS®, Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club and "The 2005 Rookie of the Year" at her former company, Jenny Pruitt & Associates. In addition, she is a founding member at Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby's International Realty.
Sarah's specialty is getting the full picture of what a buyer is looking for in terms of aesthetics, neighborhood and amenities. "It is so important to really understand the specifics and finishings of architecture to help your clients realize their dream," Sarah says. "Yes, a home continues to be one of the best long-term investments one could make, but it also must feel like a pleasure every time you walk through the front door."
