"Sara did a wonderful job for us and that's saying a lot as dealing with a bully of a buyer proved to be very difficult for us and for her. There's no way of knowing if this kind of situation will arise but if it does, you really need someone who is willing to go to the mat for you. Sara was on the ball with every detail and was thorough, from start to finish. She is super professional, really knows her stuff, and will work extremely hard for you. Our house sold very quickly which enabled us to buy our dream home. Thank you so much for everything Sara, you're the best!"
-Jean & Steve , Satisfied Seller and Relocation Referral Client
"Sara helped my husband and I buy our first condo. She helped us understand all parts of the process before we even got started so we were ready with all the information we needed to make a good decision. She came with us to several open houses, so that when we saw the house we wanted, we knew instantly, and she knew we were serious. Sara was able to arrange for us to be the first people to see the condo when it came on the market, and she helped us get an offer into the sellers that very night. If we had waited, we would have been outbid; we are sure of it. We owe Sara for getting us our place, and it has been the most magical home for us since day one. We cannot thank Sara enough, or recommend her highly enough. I tell all my friends who are thinking about moving up to Salem from Boston that Sara is the best! "
-Kate Martin, Satisfied buyer client 2018
"Sara helped my family sell a home in Andover, MA. She was extremely knowledgable about the process, and was highly communicative and responsive throughout our interactions. She always brought great ideas and suggestions to the table, and made sure things stayed on track. She was particularly good at managing the details. In other words, the little things that can impact timing or potentially derail a sale. The house was clearly priced appropriately and was successfully sold within a short period of time. I would highly recommend Sara as a realtor." ~Bill Y. (satsified seller client 2018)
"I've been fortunate (and smart) enough to use Sara (Maurno) for two transactions...one buying, one selling. She tirelessly searched, recommended, and several times notified me of potential opportunities even before they hit the market, allowing me to be one of the first to get in and view the property. Her knowledge of the North Shore market, and how to strategize when making an offer I found invaluable. When it came time to sell she was all over it...helping with timing, strategies for the open houses, photography, and of course, pricing. She was a true partner whom I trusted and relied upon. I enthusiastically recommend her!"
~Kay B. (satisfied Buyer & Seller client 2017)
"I can't say enough about Sara (Maurno). My husband and I worked with Sara for a sale and two purchases. I honestly don't think we would have been as successful without Sara. She is so incredibly knowledgeable. We gave her some pretty basic info- we wanted a condo in a nice area. She took that and ran with it. She showed us amazing places. When we found the one that we knew we wanted, she worked her magic and got us in before the open house, which gave us a huge advantage and ultimately led to our offer being accepted (under asking!). When we began our search for our second condo, we were thrilled to work with her again. I was having a really hard time figuring out exactly what I wanted. Sara picked up on that and really helped us. We met before one of the showings she had arranged. She hopped in our car with a pad of paper and asked to chat. She really helped us look at things realistically and think about what was truly important. Again, Sara worked her magic and got our offer accepted in the tough seller's market AND under the asking price! Sara is so sweet and is really fun to work with. She's become a friend now, not just our realtor. I feel lucky to have been able to work with her!"
~Emily (satisfied repeat client North Shore & Greater Boston 2017)
"My wife and I had an amazing experience working with Sara (Maurno). We were new to the Salem area, so we did not even know exactly what we were interested in/what we could afford. Sara took the time to drive us around the area, pointing out different characteristics that might interest us as well as giving us a great idea of how far our dollar could go. She helped us through some bidding wars that did not pan out for one reason or another, and once we found the place we ultimately wound up buying, she was a great advocate for us. She helped us understand every step of the way, and was not shy about stepping up on our behalf to clarify things with the sellers, lawyers, or lenders. We can't recommend her services highly enough."
~John (satisfied client moving from Greater Boston to North Shore 2017)
"I worked with Sara over two months to sell my home. She came to our first meeting with good information about recent sales of comparable properties in my area, and actionable suggestions for preparing the house for sale. I followed her suggestions, cleaning out the property, and keeping its exterior clean. Meanwhile, she updated me on the interest she received from potential buyers. After the open house, it all went quickly. We chose a suitable buyer, and agreed on price and terms. The first one backed out for personal reasons, but the second one came through, and we soon closed. Throughout this process, Sara kept me clearly updated about progress, options, and assistance. Thank you, Sara, for all your work and help. I am deeply satisfied with our results."
~Mario (satisfied seller Greater Boston 2017)
"Sara was knowledgeable, professional, and a pro-active communicator. She was highly available to us through all the steps of this process and went above and beyond the standard job requirements to help this process go smoothly for us."
~Laura (Satisfied repeat seller)
"We are grateful to Sara Maurno for helping us buy our condo in Salem's tough market. She provided the great search tools and once we identified a property that was of interest, she did the research, helped us gauge the pros and cons of the condo, and was professional in her dealings with a very difficult seller's agent. We are happily settled in now and would highly recommend Sara."
~Claudia (Satisfied North Shore home owner 2017)
"Sara took the time to get to know what I was looking for in my new home. She really thought not only about what I said I wanted, but about my work, family and friends and made great suggestions of places to look at; so great in fact, that the home I purchased was not something I would have looked at without her nudge. And she was right; I love it! Sara answered any question I had, sometimes before I even asked. She made connections with my approval with bank and attorney, and worked together with them to make the purchase as seamless as possible for me. I would and will recommend Sara (Maurno) to anyone who is looking for a new home!"
~Nancy (Satisfied homeowner 2017)
“Sara (Maurno) was an incredibly amazing agent to work with when I was looking for my new home. She was extremely professional in all of her interactions with me, and helpful in every possible way including always responding to my emails in a very timely manner, being patient with me, answering all of my questions thoughtfully and honestly, and reassuring me and keeping my hopes up in the face of not seeing any houses I liked. Then, after spending a lot of her time looking at houses with me, when I finally found the house I wanted, Sara was awesome in putting together our bid to ensure I ended up getting that house. Sara then continued to stay on top of things and made sure that everything worked out properly and on schedule all the way through to my closing. Buying a new house is a trying and challenging process, and you want Sara on your side when going through it.”
~Kanishkan (Satisfied home owner 2016)
“Without a moment of hesitation, I cannot recommend highly enough, Realtor, Sara Maurno. This woman has stretched herself to the max in working for and "with" her clients, genuinely caring about people. She goes far beyond what any good realtor would do and that's what makes her and her work ethic so extraordinary. Her advice was invaluable and paid off in the end--and I don't mean in "just" dollars and cents. What an awesome, inspiring, hard working woman she is. Kudos and more of 'em for this remarkable Realtor! Thank you, Sara.
~Dorothy, (Satisfied client 2016)
Sara (Maurno) was a heavenly presence to me during my home sale. She guided my actions: working together with seller’s lawyer; checking on my process in emptying my home, after 38yrs.of memories and STUFF!!! She was there for my concerns and keeping up to date for clear out!! Thank you so much Sara for your kindness and professional guidance.
~ Elaine V. (Satisfied Seller and relocation client 2015)
"As first-time homebuyers my wife and I didn't know where to start! With a bit of luck we found and starting working with Sara (Maurno) in order to purchase a home in Salem, MA. Sara took the time to teach us about the home-buying process, and encouraged us to make informed decisions. She was a true advocate and guide from our first meeting until we had the keys! We found Sara to be professional, caring, informed, and light-hearted. Should we ever hope to move again, we'll absolutely reconnect with Sara!"
~ Allison & Emily, (Satisfied home owner 2016)
"Sara deserves the highest of recommendations - she not only took all the stress out of relocating long distance from west coast to east, she also found us a north shore dream home and helped us negotiate all the usual hurdles with ease. Sara (Maurno) worked very hard for us throughout the process, and was extremely knowledgeable - we couldn't be happier."
~ Mike & Sally, (Satisfied Relocation client 2015)
"A truly caring agent, Sara puts her whole heart into finding the right home for her clients. She really went over and above expectations helping us find the perfect place for our aunt. There was constant communication and feedback about the market, as well as other pertinent moving information. When there was a last minute curve ball, Sara (Maurno) worked overtime to see it fully resolved. This particular transaction was not going to provide a big commission for Sara, but she treated us like we were her most important clients. I can only imagine what she does for her other buyers and sellers!"
~ Megie S (Satisfied Relocation client 2015)
"I just wanted to say that Sara (Maurno) was very instrumental in the sale of a two family I owned in Lynn Mass. When things weren't looking good, she kept at it and got me what I wanted. I would highly recommend her. Great negotiator!"
~Dana F. B. (Satisfied North Shore home owner 2014)
"Sara (Maurno) was recommended from another broker. When we contacted her it was clear she was very aware of the market situation and had wonderful suggestions and advise. We had a lot of changes and challenges with our request. Sara had no problem with quick and specific solutions for us. We found her to be the best professional in communications and return calls that we have ever dealt. We were very lucky to have Sara as our agent."

"A family friend recommended Sara (Maurno) when I decided to move back to the northeast after a year in Florida. We spoke and she described the area in the historic section of Salem within walking distance of local restaurants, stores, Peabody Essex Museum, etc. We corresponded by phone, fax and email and within six weeks of initial contact I was moving into the apt. Sara followed up with recommending a contact for a local walking club! I would not hesitate to recommend Sara (Mauro) to anyone who was considering a new home or selling their existing one."
~ Carol D. (Satisfied Relocation home owner 2015)
"When we moved to Massachusetts from Oregon, we had no idea what we were doing. Thank goodness we met Sara. Not only did she find a fantastic place to live within our budget right in the heart of beautiful, downtown Salem, but she even acted as a de facto tour guide who showed us all of the sights and was chockfull of fantastic advice. Personable, honest and hard-working, we wouldn't hesitate to call Sara (Maurno) again."
~ Jeremy & Jennifer C. (Satisfied North Shore home owner 2014)
"So pleased to recommend Sara (Maurno) to anyone buying or selling their home. She knows the intricate ins and outs of real estate, takes the stress out of the equation, and acts like a human being and not a real estate sales robot. Our experience buying our Salem condo was easy and smooth because she did all the difficult parts for us!"
~ Kathleen, M. (Satisfied Relocation home owner 2015)
"Sara (Maurno) was my buyer’s agent purchasing a condo in Salem. Her knowledge of the market was very helpful in finding and closing the right deal. After the Offer was signed she was key in keeping the closing on track, working with the seller’s agent, lawyers and the bank keeping them on track. I was very happy with her assistance finding and completing the purchase."
~ Andrew M. (Satisfied North Shore home owner 2014)
“If you are planning to buy or sell a home I recommend Sara (Maurno). Simply put, you could not have a Realtor working harder on your behalf. She is honest and has an easy way of relating with her customers, but she is not afraid to move quickly and play hard when she has to bring her clients the best results possible. They don’t call her Sara Moves for nothing!”
~ Jeffrey S. (Satisfied Greater Boston home owner 2015)
“Sara (Maurno) helped us buy our dream house. If I had to use one word to describe her it is “professional”. I wouldn't use anyone else!”
