Congratulations to my seller client KENDRA & JESSIE GILLIAM (Jessie not pictured). I helped them purchase their home on Springs Crossing several years ago. Now they need to move-up to a bigger home - which I'll be helping to make happen. Thanks too to the selling agent, Brandy Rice, who introduced us to a fabulous couple who purchased the property to get closer to their work for a much easier commute!!! This transaction closed May 25th! Congrats to all!!!!
Dede and Bill
We closed on their new home on February 23rd. They've had several renovation projects going on this month complete updates to the master bathroom suite and the kitchen. Although they haven't officially moved in yet, they've stayed overnight a few times. They came to Atlanta to see their grandchildren over Easter weekend and stayed in the house. Before leaving for home yesterday, they invited me to breakfast with them in their new home! Bill made a fabulous breakfast of scrambled eggs, English muffins with blueberry preserves, etc! And, I got to meet their new Australian Shepard puppy -- WILLOW!
Thanks for breakfast Dede and Bill! Thanks for the opportunity to assist you and thanks for inviting me to breakfast! The house looks AWESOME!

Welcome Garrett M Norris.
Here's what Garrett had to say:
I was referred to Sara Hibbard by a friend. As a first time home buyer, I was very grateful to have Sara Hibbard as my real estate agent. She treated me like family. She strived to help me find the right home for me and my family. She was compassionate and took her work seriously as she assisted me through the enormous decision process of finding and buying my first home. Sara worked hard to answer all my questions and to help me understand the housing market. She was readily available whenever I called or emailed. Thank you Sara! -Garrett
This is Garrent after his closing on December 31, 2012.
Garrett was a first time home buyer and purchased a totally renovated property in Woodstock.

Dave and Stephanie
We just wanted to thank you for all your assistance during our house hunting process. Since the beginning you were always there for us even until the wee hours of the morning!
Everything went so smoothly which made things a lot easier for us. We appreciate all your hard work and dedication. We are very happy in our new home in Woodstock. Please stop in to see us some time soon.
Dave and Stephanie
Rachelle & Byron
By the way, Amber (the previous owner) said, "You've got a good real estate agent there (about you.) She really knows her stuff! I wish I would have had her rather than 'Round Bob'!" (Although, he did do a good job for them also, I think. We compared gifts from you guys - all they got was a HUGE bottle of wine! You're the best, Sara. Blessings to everything you touch in the future! Best wishes!
Rachelle & Byron
Welcome Dave and Phyllis
Dave and Phyllis faced some serious financial problems brought on by a job lay off, health problems and more. To compound their challenges they owed significantly more on their home than it's worth. They had been trying for three years to work with their lender on a home modification that never materialized. Sara Hibbard listed their home as a Short Sale on August 22, 2012. There was much interest in their home and many tours. Within 42 days, there were multiple offers on the property including a 100% cash offer from buyers who were relocating to Georgia from England. The offer was $40,000 higher than the most recent appraised value! The Short Sale bank gave their written Short Sale Approval Letter within 48 hours! Dave and Phyllis closed on the sale of their home on November 29, 2012. Best wishes to Dave and Phyllis as they embark on their retirement, new adventures and new experiences. Sara Hibbard, CDPE, is a licensed Realtor in the state of Georgia. Dave and Phyllis' experience is not typical of Short Sale Transactions. The short sale process is riddled with challenges, however, Sara Hibbard specializes in assisting people with financial problems who owe more on their homes than they're worth and they don't know what to do. Sara's marketing expertise is a winner and will get your home SOLD too! Sara has sold many Short Sale properties. Let Sara help you too! If you know someone faced with financial challenges owing more on their home than it's worth -- Call Sara Hibbard at 404-660-2481 today!

My clients Linda and Marc from the eastern shore of Maryland who purchased a house in Harmony on the Lakes in the spring of 2013 looked marvelous.
They are happy as clams and wish they had moved sooner.
Here is what Marc and Linda have to say:
Great to see you on Saturday! Glad to hear that your shoulder is on the mend and that you are having a great year. We love our place here in HOTL (Harmony on the Lakes) and will tell anyone North Georgia is a great place to live and retire to! If you have any clients needing convincing please send them our way! Thanks again for all you did to help us get settled!
If you are in the neighborhood sometime stop by and say hi! Thanks for the picture. You can use it as a "110 % satisfied Sara Hibbard customer"
Marc and Linda
Welcome to the neighborhood Rob.
Rob Evans gives his two thumbs up after closing!
Welcome to our new member of the area, Art Baldwin!
I'd like to WELCOME my newest client MARY COLE.
I began working with Mary in early October. Mary relocated to Georgia from Las Vegas, NV to be closer to her daughter Melissa who lives in Powder Springs. WELCOME to Georgia! WELCOME to ATLANTA! WELCOME to POWDER SPRINGS and finally, WELCOME HOME, MARY COLE! We closed on Mary's new home in Georgia on Wednesday, December 4th!
Meet Matt and Janelle and their children Michael and Lauren.
These folks relocated to Georgia from Australia 18 months ago. The kids were all set in their new schools so the challenge was to find a home in their current neighborhood and/or school system. Luckily they purchased a home only two houses away from the house they have been renting since their arrival in the USA. Congratulations to Janelle, Matt, Michael and Lauren! WELCOME to the USA! WELCOME to Georgia! Welcome to Alpharetta and Finally WELCOME HOME!
Congratulations to JOHN & DONNA MURPHY

A Home in Dunwoody!
On Wednesday, April 19th at 1pm, I helped Melanie, Emory and Eric close on a home in Dunwoody.
We reached a binding agreement on March 27th, and actually closed on April 19th! WOW! The family relocated to Georgia from Texas and have basically been "homeless" since Christmas after their Texas home sold/closed in early January.
Although this is "bitter-sweat" -- this lady had signed up to receive listings in the Alpharetta area in anticipation of potential relocation, they won't be relocating after all.
I wanted to share the lovely note she sent to me.
Just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your tremendous help in searching for a home in the Atlanta area. While my husband's transfer changed to remaining in the Phoenix area ---- you were gracious and professional---- which makes it even harder to stay out here in the desert. I really fell in love with Atlanta--- was able to easily navigate your website and found a couple of areas that were outstanding. You provided so many wonderful choices every day ! If a move to Atlanta is ever in the future, you will be my first call !
Many Thanks, Elaine
Linda and Marc
This home went on the market on Tuesday and we had a binding agreement by Sat.
Sara is a professional and she knows the market. She is straight forward and realistic. The way to sell a house is numbers. The more people that see your house the better chance of selling it. Sara left no stone unturned when putting my house on the market. We live in a technological world and she used that technology to the max to sell my house. The result was my house sold in less that a week. I highly recommend Sara Hibbard.
~Ellen Ward's home went on the market with Sara on Tuesday June 4th. The same week Ellen closed on her home on Sunday June 9th.
This home went on the market on Tuesday and we had a binding agreement by Sat.
Lindsay & Julius D.
Julius and I can't thank you enough for all you did in helping us with our home search and purchase. We feel truly blessed to have found you through your website. I didn't have any personal recommendations, but I felt after talking to you on the phone that you would do a great job for us. I worked with realtors throughout my career as a real estate paralegal so I feel as though I have an insiders perspective on what to look for in a good realtor. You are not just a good realtor, you are top knotch!
We appreciate your patience in helping us find exactly what we were looking for and being willing to go outside of your area to do that. I think you must have put hundreds of miles on your car driving us to all the places you thought we might be interested in. When we looked at a property you didn't rush us in and out, even if there were things that we weren't quite sure about. That allowed us to really determine what was important to us and what we might be able to live with. The great thing was that you really cared about helping us find the right house and not just closing a sale.
You were so responsive when we had questions and worked around our schedule, especially when we ended up in a time crunch to find a house. I really felt you were watching out for our interest. Even after the closing you are still there for us when we have questions. That's really above and beyond what you have to do and speaks a lot for you as a person, that we are happy in our new home.
Looking forward to seeing you soon so you can see what we've done to the house!
Lindsay & Julius
Amy and Korey
"We are so glad you're helping us. You seam to be all over it. I called the school, they said we are in their district at that address. So don't worry. I've been off this road for ten years. Believe me the school districts are not always listed right. We are so glad we met you, and when we get moved in you will be the first person we invite to dinner, Thanks for your help,"
Vicki & Wyatt, Canton
"Wyatt just now passed me the lovely note from you, with the gift card enclosed! I am really touched and want to thank you again for your many many kindnesses. You are very professional, but also very personable, which we have really appreciated!
The movers are coming in next Monday - Thursday, and then we will camp out here until we fly to the USA and finally drive to Canton on the 11th of February. It's starting to feel very REAL and I'm so excited!
See you soon and God bless you! Vicki"
Rob and Dawnyll Hooker closed on a lake home in Acworth on March 8th. The Hooker's relocated to Georgia from Texas in August 2012. They have taken time to find their "ideal" home and have finally found "the one" complete with lake and dock access, swimming pool, incredible chef's kitchen and much more!
Congratulations Dawnyll, Rob, Elizabeth and Eli Hooker! WELCOME to Atlanta!
Chad and Michelle
Hey Sara, I have decided on the Flowery Branch townhome. I can get more space for the money, it is pretty inside and out, and I like the smaller town. Thank you very much for your help. You did an execellent job selecting homes that I liked. You are very meticulous and thorough with your work and it is noticed by your customers. I will highly recommend you to anyone moving to this area. Thanks again for all of your help!
Tammy, Flowery Branch
Thank you, Sara for all you have done to find our "perfect" home! We are thrilled! We could never have dreamed that we would find everything on our "wish list" plus the resident deer out back! You have been wonderful to work with! Our Florida relatives want to relocate to Georgia too! We have already told them about you. Once they sell their home in Ft. Lauderdale you will surely be hearing from them. We thank you for all your help and guidance along the way!
Rex and Elizabeth, Canton
Dear Sara, Thank you for following up, and I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. My situation has improved (somewhat). As a result, I am going to delay my house-hunt a few more months. As we discussed my lease will be up in May and I do expect to find a home rather than signing a new lease. Your weekly listings updates have been a huge help to my search. You can be assured that I will make sure to keep your contact information, as I was very impressed when speaking to you and would definitely want to use you as soon as my situation changes. I will be in touch soon! Thank you for your constructive council and sage advice. You are truly wonderful! Your guidance is appreciated more than my words can express! Thank you, J. S.
