I’m writing an endorsement / recommendation / five-star (no, make that six-star) review for Sarah Corliss, our realtor in Trinidad, California. I literally can’t say enough about how special it was to work with Sarah. From the moment my wife and I expressed interest in a nearby undeveloped property, Sarah was on it—in every detail. Not only did she keep track of, clearly present, and help us work through every issue we had to deal with (and there were a lot of them)—she always did so with a smile, unfailing expertise, kindness, and energy. (And you can say the same for her supportive office staff.) Many times, she extended herself beyond the call of duty—like when she appropriately connected us with our future neighbors, making sure we met them and established a positive relationship (which was a must in the context of acquiring the property). And she consistently kept the fiscal realities in view, helping us think through our negotiations, and making sure our bids were reasonable and respectable—a win-win for buyer and seller, which was important to both myself and my wife, as we value fairness. I can say without reserve that if you decide to use Sarah as your realtor—you will have made a very good decision!
Sincerely, Bill Gottlieb, resident of Trinidad, CA - June 22, 2020
Sarah's a true professional. Without her help we never could have bought our dream property in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Emails flew back and forth, inspections happened on time, workarounds were the new normal. Sarah kept her cool during it all and was never pushy. She did a great job representing us.
This was a wonderful experience! Sarah & Crystal went out of their way to make us feel welcomed & taken care of. We definitely will recommend them to anyone who is looking for an agent.
Sarah and her associates did an exceptional job for me on a difficult raw land sale. She was knowledgeable of all the necessary details and did a great job of acting to resolve all challenges in a responsive and professional manner. She and her staff are personable and attentive to customer satisfaction. I highly recommend Sarah to anyone needing real estate assistance.
I am very grateful to Forbes & Associates for the skillful handling of our house sale. It was done in the blink of an eye, and the inspection and transfer process went smoothly in all respects. Sue obviously had a great sense of the growing market for attractive homes in the area, and an up to date list of interested clients. All of this made our tough decision to sell, as good an experience as it could have been. Thank you.
Selling mostly over the winter in a troublesome market is never easy, but Sarah made me feel 100% supported. I knew I could trust her advice, and I relied on her judgment throughout. She says she is a "full service" broker, and she means it! I would choose her all over again, and I definitely recommend her to anyone I know who is in the market.
Sue and Sarah make quite an excellent team. They listed our house and found us buyers in eight days! We closed in less than 45 days. They were on top of everything and kept us informed daily. We HIGHLY recommend them!
Five stars all around for Sue Forbes and her office! Sue and Sarah were highly professional in every sense of the word. They had answers for us before we could even ask the questions and guided us every step of the way through the escrow process including some challenging issues with the sale our house. They served us with integrity, professionalism, friendliness, and even threw in doses of humor! They are the best!
I had been working with Sarah for over two years trying to find the perfect home. And she made it happen! Her perseverance and patience are astronomical. Always professional and positive, she’s the best agent I have ever worked with.
We love Sarah!! I was new to the home buying process, husband was a bit out of date with his experiences. Sarah was very knowledgeable, available and responsive. Any issues that came up, I felt she totally had our backs and was quick to provide all the info we could need. She’s also very cool and down to earth, I have already recommended her to friends. Because she was so on the ball, we were able to jump on our dream property right away, and we just love it! Thanks Sarah!!
Sarah is a delightful person, and we enjoyed working with her very much. She is professional, organized, and very knowledgeable. We purchased a lot outside of our local area, so we really relied on Sarah’s expertise. She was patient, and made sure we had all the information we needed to make an informed decision. We now own the lot of our dreams! We can’t wait to build our retirement home in Trinidad, and we hope to visit with Sarah more often
Absolutely awesome to work with. Sold my home quickly, for the price we wanted, kept me informed every step of the way, very professional and very friendly. I would highly recommend her!
Sue Forbes and Sarah Corliss work as a team; I saw both equally. They do an absolutely outstanding job, as does Cami at the office. The sale of my house (incorrectly described by Zillow, correctly described by Sue & Sarah) is finally complete. Sue and Sarah have the utmost professionalism, courtesy, diligence. I chose them based on their reputation, the number of homes they had successfully sold, and I was not disappointed. They facilitate other agents showing the home, and also schedule showings themselves. Sarah does a lot of the legwork, whether it’s hiking trails or delivering paperwork; Sue’s strengths are long roots in the community, excellent connections, encyclopedic knowledge of real estate in Humboldt County, and fair assessment of the market. They have contacts within the community to get things done, whether it’s people who wash windows, someone to haul away accumulated “stuff” when you are preparing the house for sale, or a professional photographer who specializes in houses. If you want a dynamic, effective team, you can’t go wrong with Sue Forbes and Sarah Corliss.
