Sarah has an extensive background in the real estate business, spanning 30+ years. Along with being the owner/operator of her family real estate company in St. Louis, Mo, started by her grandfather in 1910, she has been involved in sales, management, corporate relocation services, real estate development projects, historic renovation, and association work.
