About Sarah

Ranked as one of the top teams in the DC Metro Area by the Wall Street Journal, Debbie, Sarah, and the entire Reynolds Team attribute their success to always putting their client’s needs first, above all else. This is something that many agents say, but Debbie and Sarah are on a mission to actually DO it by providing their clients several GUARANTEE programs that take the risk out of selling or buying a home. They have become passionate about providing these guarantees, and at the same time making each client feel as though they are their only client. Debbie started the business in 1988 to provide extra income for the family. What started as extra income turned into a passion. Sarah joined her mom with this passion in 2006, and not only did the mother-daughter aspect bring them together, but so did the passion for their clients. They are a true family owned business! It’s been said that buying or selling a home is one of the most stressful things that anyone will go through in their lifetime. Debbie and Sarah understand this, and are passionate about providing an experience for their clients where we take ALL the stress away! They have always hired partners to join the team that share their core values! It hasn’t always been easy to find them, but they have found that it is worth the wait to find agents and team members that have the same care and passion that they do! It’s an amazing team!
