Sarah Malarkey - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Sarah recently sold my sister-in-law’s condo.

It was a wonderful experience. She came in with her bubbly and get- it - done attitude! She walked us through the process and was there to help us. The condo was barely on the market before we received a full ask, cash offer! Thank you Sarah for your expertise and kindness!

Cindy Kropp

Our family had a delightful experience with Sarah Malarkey, she is an excellent real estate agent.

Sarah is very patient, and was always available to show a home, in person or a video tour. On these tours she was thorough, spotting any issues and teasing out the property's highlights - as photos can be deceiving. Sarah never wavered from being upbeat and positive. The team at Next Home was very responsive as well. We are very happy to have worked with Sarah! We would highly recommend her to family and friends.

Steve and Gina Comfort

Sarah, was amazing.

Very communicable and really felt like she was putting us first and only working for us. All my questions were answered timely and sometimes she sent information before I had a question. She really gets to know her clients and offers good sound advice - I really felt like I had a true advisor to help us navigate the purchase process. Highly recommend!

Brie Malarkey

Sarah was awesome in helping us to find and buy a home.

She is always positive, energetic and pays attention to detail in the final closing process. Sarah went above and beyond for us! We hope we can continue to see her as she has such a great personality, and we consider her a new friend.

Ravena L Huboi

This was my first experience purchasing a new home.

I had been working with another realtor who I was not really feeling good about. I was referred to Sarah by my cousin, Erica Harmon who is a mortgage broker for Crosscountry Mortgage LLC. Erica told me that Sarah was on vacation and would reach out to me when she got back. Sarah was on vacation for Spring Break with her family and sent me a text as soon as she heard I needed some help. She let me know she was on vacation and would come over and meet me as soon as she got back. When Sarah came over, I instantly felt a connection. I had been trying to find a home that would accommodate my teenager, fiancé and my elderly mother. Sarah was so sweet and patient and really understood what our family needed She went with us thru the entire process and then some. I had the best team working for my family and I mean WORKING 24/7 text messages, emails and calls with updates and answering questions. I appreciate all the work these galls did for my family. Sarah was a pleasure to work with and she helped us in so many ways!! My family and I absolutely love her, we found our forever home and Sarah made the process painless and explained the process step by step. I give Sarah 10 stars out of 5 for taking such good care of us!! Thank You Sarah!

Sarah was an absoulute joy to work with.

She was on top of all the Covid precautions that needed to be taken into consideration when listing a house during a pandemic. Selling our house was super quick and easy. I still can't believe it all happened so fast. Thank you Sarah!

frank kirkland (home owner)

We loved working with Sarah in the search of our home.

She made us feel comfortable and positive through a very stressful market. Her attitude was always uplifting and she had always nice things to say. It took us several offers to find our home, and Sarah was always ready to deal with all the paperwork, no matter the time or day. Thank you Sarah! Come visit us soon!

Jennifer and John Welsh-Martinho

Sarah did an amazing job pulling together our contingency sale!

We she helped us make an offer on our beautiful new home and sell our previous home at the same time. This is no simple feet, especially when unexpected complications arise. Sarah helped us sell our home within one day of the one-week time frame the sellers gave us. What we have now was well worth the effort and her willingness to do whatever it takes made all the difference!

Heather Hill (Owner: The Write Path Resumes)

Sarah is great.

She's experienced, knowledgeable, and hard-working, but most of all she's the best at being emotionally supportive, caring, friendly, listening and understanding the client, and helping to support and navigate whatever may come throughout the real estate process. In the past, I've used three real estate agents before Sarah, and she has been by far the best at listening and supporting us throughout the process.

Robert Hatch

We love Sarah!

She was amazing to work with and I am so glad someone recommended her to us. We had a tough year because of covid but she stuck with us and always had the best attitude when helping us search homes. She is very knowledgeable about the market and the process of home buying, so we felt very confident with her as our realtor. Her team was excellent as well! She makes you feel like her number one priority and is always available. She had our best interest at heart always and was always honest with us. It was really fun to work with her and it was a great experience and that is seriously telling in a year like 2021, to make it such an enjoyable experience in this kind of market. We are so Happy with the perfect home she found us! If you need a realtor she is the one!

Kristina Chirgwin

If you are looking for someone to help you sell your home, look no further.

We were selling our first home, with all the emotions that can carry and she made the process so easy and even enjoyable. She answered all of our questions, not matter how small or odd, and guided us through every step of the process. Sarah and her team made something that could have been stressful and scary really easy, and helped get us positioned to move on to our next home. I cannot say enough good things about Sarah!

Cordelia Daniels

Sarah is very good at marketing and selling homes!

We had offers above our asking price and she helped us to choose the best offer and after a little work it closed and we are very happy with Sarah Malarkey and her team. We will use her again if we need her team in the future.

Richard m .Libbey , Jr.

Sarah won us over, to be our agent selling our home, by her bubbly personality, her knowledge of our neighborhood and choosing the right price for the value of the house.

Sold house at asking price. Two other agents had given us at least $30,000.00 less. Thank you Sarah for making this happen.

Tonia Kafouros

Consummate professional.

A real pleasure to work with. Held our hand(s) through the whole process. Full asking price cash offer on day two. Would highly recommend Sarah!

Carol and Lloyd Pelton

Sarah was a wonderful realtor to work with to sell my first home.

She walked me through every step of the way and was a great cheerleader when I was uncertain. Her resources and perseverance helped sell my home in less than a week. Between having my home staged and photographed, and posted, she managed to get all the details taken care of in record time.. I'm so impressed with her help and personal touches from the beginning to end. I will definitely recommend her services to all my family and friends.

Candice Chandler

Sara Helped me with an estate that was in probate court so of course it was more than a normal real estate transaction.

Sara was highly recommended to me by a reputable law firm. From the moment we met she was very helpful with a timeline of events and what we should expect. Sara was very transparent about all the details. She made a few suggestions to me about staging the home. I believe her thoughts that went into those suggestions actually played a large part in the house selling as soon as it was listed. She is very mature and knowledgeable about what it takes to get the job done. Sara surprised me when she held open house as soon as she could, that goes to show me how dedicated she is to helping people accomplish and benefit from her work ethics..It seems like we just started this journey and it was over way to fast. I hope that we can use her talent in the future. Aimee Potter Salem,Oregon

Aimee Potter (mrs. homemaker)

We are elated at our extraordinary good luck in having Sarah as our realtor during a challenging time in the real estate market.

It would be difficult to imagine anyone better able to "keep us in the loop" than she. Very impressively, Sarah dipped into her commission to provide added benefits for prospective buyers, including a home warranty. My wife and I will continue to enthusiastically recommend Sarah Malarky for many years to come. Paul Erickson

Paul T. Erickson, Jr. (Retired high school principal)

I will say the absolute best of the best!

It is rare you get the opportunity to work with such a professional let alone one that works with such attention to detail. The home buying process and market has been an experience, I 100 percent know in my heart having Sarah by my side helped ease the transaction and was an absolute force navigating the market. Thank you so much Sarah to you and your team!!!! We did it :')

From helping us stage our home, being present for our listing photography, answering our many questions, making sure we were competitively priced, and making our home shine.

Krystal S

I can not say enough good things about Sarah.

She is always in the know and on top of every detail. She is energetic and so professional, she truly made me feel that I was her only client which is an amazing quality. I am so lucky to have found her.

Debra Hendricks

I hired Sarah to purchase my home in Hillsboro, and when marriage took me to Massachusetts, I didn't hesitate to hire her as my listing agent.

As both a Buyer and a Seller's agent, Sarah was absolutely fabulous. She is an an expert at all things real estate: She knows everything about every neighborhood in Hillsboro, she understands all of the details about buying and selling, and she is incredibly responsive to texts and emails. In both buying and selling, Sarah knew everything about everyone I needed to contact and hire, from the utility companies to plumbers to storage to mortgage broker to house stager. She went way above and beyond, was always patient and friendly, and always kept me feeling in control of the situation. She is always cheerful, happy to explain things, follows up and follows through. She works extremely hard but was always patient when explaining any detail I didn't understand. I cannot possibly recommend her highly enough.

Marshall Goldberg

She was great to work and very positive.

Roderick Norris (Security)

We asked Sarah if she would help us in the purchase of our new home in St.

Helens, asking her was hands down our best decision we could of made. Sarah also helped us navigate some turbulence in a previous real estate transaction that she was not our realtor for. We are so incredibly thankful for her picking up those pieces that a previous realtor had dropped the ball on & really being there for us when she didn’t have to be. It speaks volumes to the kind of person Sarah is. She stands by ethics, & has a heart of gold which really shines through her work & with her clients. Sarah went above and beyond any expectation we could of ever had for our realtor. She stands by you every step of the way guiding, answering questions no matter how small or trivial, & even stands by you after your purchase. She has extensive knowledge of the Portland metro area market, we’ve watched her make dreams come true for neighbors helping them sell their home quickly for new adventures or find their dream home. We couldn’t recommend her enough, she truly delivers the red carpet white glove service while helping you make dreams come true.

Catie Meek

Sarah is one in a million.

She puts 100% into her clients. There was never any pressure to buy but when we were ready everything was made easy for us. Thank you so much for everything.

Robert Atwood

Sarah was able to navigate a rapidly changing market to ensure the best outcome for the sale of my house.

She's great at advocating for her clients.

Amanda Fernie

Sarah has been amazing to work with!

Jeff Meek

My husband and I have done three house transactions with Sarah.

A realtor is a reflection of their clients and I am so glad we chose her to represent us! Selling and buying homes can be stressful. Sarah does her best to make that complicated process as smooth and s aimless as possible. There is never a doubt that she is on your team! Her kindness, positivity, grace, transparency, and determination are consistent. We look forward to working with her again on our next purchase.

Heather Hill (Owner - The Write Path Resumes & Interview Prep)

Sarah went above and beyond in helping me sell my home.

I highly recommend her for all your real estate needs! I will never work with anyone else again.

Megan Rios

It was great to work with Sarah, as first time buyers it could have been scarier but all felt very smooth and easy.

Sarah is a very warm, friendly person that made us feel at ease. We highly recommend her!!!

enrico carbonere (senior designer)

Sarah is AMAZING!

! Not only did she drive clear across town to show us one house at a time because houses we were looking at never lined up to look at a few in one trip , but she listened to what we wanted and knew what was important for our family. She would give us her honest opinion and it always made sense. Even when all the odds were against us she still stood by our side and helped us land a house. Our first home! I couldn't recommend Sarah Malarkey more. I will be telling anybody who is looking for a realtor about her because people like her are hard to find. You can't go wrong with Sarah in your corner!!!

Brandi Norris (Recruiting Consultant)

Sarah is one of the most genuine and honest agents you could ever find.

As a neighbor, friend and agent she always was open and kept me informed throughout the process. Even as I had moments of doubt and fear she would calm me with her kindess and would hand hold me throughout the whole process. Sarah is amazing and I recommend the highest accolades and awards for Sarah. She is just amazing and If and when I buy a house again she is my agent for sure.

Rodney Ray Swendener (Former Homeowner)

Sarah is a gem.

There are no words to describe how hard working and incredibly kind this lady is. If you want somebody that is incredibly kind, patient, knowledgeable, and hard working she is your person. I feel blessed to have had her help me out in this life event I had to endure. She is an angel. I have and will always recommend her to all my friends and family. Thank you Sarah. ??????????

Christina Phayre


Words can't even describe my deep appreciation for all of her help. She has such a positive attitude. My sale was complex in nature, and she handled it so very well. I will most certainly recommend her to (have already) and will use her expertise/help in the future. She made the process so simple and I enjoyed working with her every step of the way. She's a natural. Thank you so so much Sarah! I will never forget all you did for me.

Barbara Faricy

Sarah listed our house in Arbor Roses for sale just after the market peaked in the middle of the summer of 2022.

We'd expected to sell the house the first weekend, but the market had changed dramatically. Sarah stuck with us throughout it all! She held open houses almost every weekend and promoted the listing anywhere and everywhere. She decorated the house, massaged the listing a few times, and even repainted the kitchen and den when she thought it would help with a particular buyer! Sarah was fantastic and she saw things through to our eventual sale. I'm very happy that we found her and recommend her highly!

Matt Turner
