As a lifelong resident of Racine, Sara has a unique and strong understanding of the communities along the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. After graduating from William Horlick High School, she attended Carthage College where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. Sara also attended Gateway Technical college where she earned her Emergency Medical Technician license.
Charting a path of helping others has provided her with valuable skills that she uses daily. Through buying and selling several properties of her own, Sara was inspired to pursue a career in Real Estate. Sara’s experiences have equipped her to be a strong communicator with attention to detail and the ability to remain calm and focused during real estate negotiations.
When not helping home buyers and sellers, Sara enjoys reading and listening to educational podcasts as a lifetime learner. She also enjoys spending time in our Wisconsin State Parks and traveling to new places. Sara frequently enjoys these activities with her husband, two children and their two German Shepherds.
