Equipped with a supreme sense of familiarity when it comes to the Chicagoland suburbs, Sarah Leonard provides her clients with insight and knowledge of the local market that only a lifelong resident could offer.
A Realtor at RE/MAX Suburban, Leonard has dedicated 13 years to serving sellers, buyers, and investors looking to purchase their first home, upgrade, or relocate. Invested in delivering outstanding client service, she makes it a top goal that her clients feel as if they are her sole customer. In her role as team leader, she ensures that the questions and concerns of clients are addressed immediately, thanks to round-the-clock availability supplied by her and her team.
In the past year, Leonard and her team have celebrated several remarkable sales accomplishments, including closing more than 420 transactions, winning Chicago Agent magazine’s vote for Best Team, being named in the Top 1000 Agents by Wall Street Journal, and being named No. 2 RE/MAX team in Northern Illinois. Leonard went from an individual agent in 2014 to an eight-agent team that ranks among the top 10 highest producing teams in the Chicagoland area. She credits the excellence of her team to the work ethic and vision of its members. The hard work and patience that went into assembling the right people has paid off for Leonard. “Surrounding myself with an outstanding team that I trust wholeheartedly has allowed us to become involved in local charities and focus on giving back, and has also allowed for myself and my team members to have good work-life balance,” she says.
Persistence has been instrumental to Leonard’s success in real estate. Her determination for every client to meet their specific goals has contributed to her earning a place in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame, RE/MAX Chairman’s Club and RE/MAX 100% Club, as well as the 5-Star Agent Service Award. “Whether it’s finding a buyer their dream home or helping our sellers prepare to list their home, we ensure that every client gets the special attention they need to have an enjoyable, hassle-free transaction.”
Leonard is actively involved in the organization Poised for Success and regularly works with the Food for Greater Elgin food pantry. When she isn’t using her free time to travel, she spends it with family, especially her nieces and nephews and her Mastiff puppy.
