Lotte & Co. did an excellent job in getting us oriented to Marin County and the housing / living opportunities and neighborhoods. Lotte was very patient with our questions and concerns and was able to help us find a fantastic home for our family in Mill Valley. We could not be more happy & satisfied with her professional time and attention she put into finding us a home!

– Kieran & Jackie Phelan

Lotte, Sarah, & McGuire staff did an excellent job orienting us to the Bay Area & housing market. They were very responsive to our questions and concerns and worked hard to understand our preferences and budget and facilitate our relocation to the home of our dreams. They went above & beyond our expectations and found the perfect home to start our new life & adventure in southern Marin County!

– Kj Phelan

Sarah and Lotte could not have done more for us! Sarah had to sell our house, a 100 acre farm, and if possible the farming business. Sarah is very smart, diligent, and fun to work with . She accomplished every goal, and found us our next perfect house! She really is the very best, putting lots of time into the project and representing her client's interest every step of the way. We had tried for several years to accomplish a sale, without any results until Sarah came along. Because of the nature of the property it didn't happen overnight, but Sarah pulled it off in spades. You will love having her on your side!! Five plus stars!! Thank you Sarah and Lotte!

– Warren Weber

My husband & I worked with Sarah & Lotte on both selling & buying. The property we sold was not your typical listing. It was a multi parcel large rural property which took several hours to show properly. Sarah was on it from day one! She gave each showing the time it required and brought creative ideas for each potential buyer. She is super smart, hard-working & knows her business. She brought integrity, a great attitude , & a smile to every interaction. We have the utmost respect for this team & would definitely work with them again.

– Amy Weber

My husband and I are in our new home, all thanks to Sarah and Lotte and their team, including Michela! They were so great about getting us into see houses we were interested in, and their sincere care was so evident in every interaction. Once we found a home, it was a challenging process, as we had to have an FHA loan. They were so helpful, and are so grateful. In an industry that can be face paced and impersonal, this team is personal, compassionate and extremely effective. They are also fantastic negotiators, with tremendous creativity and great instincts. I can't recommend them more highly. Meegan Lee Ochs-Potter

Kim and I had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Lotte on four home transactions -- the purchase and sale of our homes in Sausalito and Tiburon. In each instance, the buy was at the right price and the sales were top of the market. The combination of market knowledge, use of data and deal savvy made for a terrific customer experience. Sarah listens, informs and takes action; she is the best.

– Edward Lange

We were so pleased with the strong negotiations that Sarah did for us when we sold our home in Corte Madera. She has a soft and sweet exterior, but is extremely strong and intelligent. She knows when to be silent and when to speak which is very important! We consider both Sarah and Lotte to be great resources for any real estate dealings that we have.

– Kay Keohane

Lotte is professional, thorough, and caring! She helped me find my dream home. I had worked with others for two years. When I switched gears and asked for Lotte's help, she listened to my needs, hopes, and desires. With great patience and spunk, she showed me many homes to give me a clear idea of the market and my options. Then, she found me my perfect spot! And, again with knowledge of the process, resources, and encouragement, I bought it! Thank you for helping me with Home Sweet Home, Lotte!~

From the first time we met with Lotte, we knew we were working with the best. Lotte is not only an expert in real estate, but she has such a lovely way with people - friendly, elegant and kind. It was so much fun to tour houses with her. She was always warmly welcomed and obviously has great relationships with everyone in the business. She loves what she does and it makes the process of touring and making offers such an enjoyable experience. I was amazed by her boundless positive energy. In addition, she has incredible knowledge of neighborhoods, the market, and what to look for when considering a house to buy. We ended up buying our dream home in an area we wouldnt have thought to consider if it hadn't been for Lotte's urging that we go and spend an afternoon exploring there. And when we were ready to put an offer together, it couldn't have been at a less convenient time for all involved. But both Lotte and Sarah were on it without skipping a beat. The deal involved some creative problem solving and Lotte kept working on getting us the best possible outcome until the very end, beyond what we would have asked for. We trusted her guidance and despite buying at what seemed the very top of the market, our home has increased in value considerably over the few years we've lived here. I cannot recommend Lotte and Sarah enough. They are truly the very best.

We all want to do business with those individuals and companies who are responsive, transparent, honest and knowledgeable. My dealings with Lotte and Sarah, have hit each one of these benchmarks. Would recommend this team to any home buyer. Toby Mumford

Sarah and Lotte sold my house in Ross. It was a home of 24 years and a rather complicated time. They not only took over the sale of my house but also comforting me. Rather than a stressful, difficult move, it turned into a breeze and established new friendships. They are professional, kind, and fun. Five stars. No, ten.

– Jeanne Barr

Based on a recommendation from a good friend, we contacted Lotte after purchasing a condo we planned to remodel and sell. As soon as we met her, we knew she was someone we wanted to work with. She came to the meeting ultra-prepared, was super professional and personable. It was obvious she really knew what she was doing and we found it easy to trust her from the very beginning. Throughout the entire process of remodelling, staging, photographing, listing and selling, Lotte gave us great advice, assisted with a sticky situation we encountered with a tenant in the building, listened to what we were hoping to achieve from the sale, ensured the whole process went as smoothly as possible and pushed hard to help us achieve our goal. Whenever anyone talks about buying or selling in Marin, we always refer them to Lotte and her partner Sarah.

– Andrea Griffin

Sarah and Lotte are simply the best realtor team in Marin. Period. Sarah helped me sell my home in Woodacre (which took a while because of the recession; yet Sarah was always patient, understanding and looking after my best interests) and purchase a lovely new home in Sonoma County. Sarah is truly brilliant, highly experienced, very responsive and extremely savvy when it comes to negotiating. I couldn't be happier with the manner in which this team operates - again, simply the best!

– Mary ONeill

Lotte and Sarah provided us with an honest, thoughtful, and effective counseling and negotiating team for the purchase of a our 2nd home in Point Reyes Station. We would enthusiastically recommend them both to other buyers and sellers.

– Don Morrill

When we purchased our home here in Marin, the transaction was complicated by us residing overseas and having a compressed time in which to find a home. We were dealing with all sorts of transitioning decisions and were fortunate to have Lotte in our corner. What an amazing agent! She was well-prepared, extremely knowledgeable about the market and the inventory, went to a great deal of effort to understand our needs, helped us to explore and reflect on our options, and made our purchase decision painless. Lotte was patient, encouraging, extremely helpful and supportive, and we consider her to be the best agent we have ever worked with. We also spent a day with Sarah and it was clear, they are a great team, who rely on one another and work as a partnership.

– Carol Bagattini

Lotte and Sarah were w dream to work with. They really listened to our needs and were very patient through the process. They learned who we were and were able to bring us a very unique home. Couldn't be happier and have already referred them to several friends.

– Robert Balmaseda

I had the great pleasure of working with Sarah twice, as a buyer and a seller. Sarah is the ultimate professional. She takes care of everything and no detail however small is missed. This woman knows her stuff!

– Lucienne Hoffman

Lotte and Sarah are the most professional, knowledgeable and responsive real estate team I have ever worked with. I have purchased many high-end single family homes in Marin County and have worked with many different realtors over the years. Lotte and Sarah are simply the best, and are totally dedicated to providing an "added value" and meeting the clients real estate objectives.

– Robert Thull

Lotte and Sarah,In both my real estate dealings with them, proved to be reliable, well-informed, professional, ethical and knowledable . Their pleasant personalities along with their helpful guidance through all the transactions were great assets. I would hightly recommend these realators to anyone interested in selling or buying property. I have been completely satisfied in every respect of my transactions with them and the company.

– Barbara Tarasoff

Sarah and Lotte are so gifted at what they do. They are smart powerful and kind and the kind of people who you'd invite over to dinner in your new beautiful dream home they made happen!

– Elizabeth Gorek

Lotte and Sarah did a great job representing us as buyers of our first home. They provided very good advice and exceptional service. Also, tenacious negotiators. Highly recommend them both.

– Paul glover

We only have the very highest praise for Lotte who found us our dream house a few years ago. She was completely professional in every regard and a total delight to work with.

– anonymous

I had the pleasure of working with Lotte on several transactions. She was always professional, negotiating expertly with both sides to create a mutually beneficial agreement. Sarah was exceptional in supporting her partner during the process.

– Annette B

Lotte and Sarah made all the difference! They gave expert, detailed recommendations on how to improve our property in preparation for sale in order to achieve the highest return on our investment. They also guided the sale so that market timing and pricing hit the perfect sweet spot, resulting in a full-price sales contract just 5 days after the house was listed! Uber-professional and forward thinking, I would return to this dynamic duo in a nano-second for my next real estate transaction.

– Norm Hunter

Sarah helped my buy a house for my son in Petaluma. Her work was absolutely stellar! She negotiated a good price, worked diligently with the other agent to make the sale happen, stood by me through the entire process, made buying recommendations that saved me thousands of dollars. I've bought many houses over the last 40 years, and my work with Sarah was the most outstanding and satisfying of all transactions. I highly and unequivocally recommend Sarah to you for your next buying/selling project.

– Frank Werblin

My husband and I sold 2 homes and purchased one through Sarah and Lotte! We also used McGuire when we sold our San Francisco Condo for above asking! Our experience with Sarah and Lotte as well as the rest of the McGuire Team has been first rate all the way around! We highly recommend Sarah and Lotte for all your Real Estate needs!

– Kimberly Lange

My wife Beth and I worked with Sarah to find a place in West Marin. She is very knowledgable and helpful. Sarah located a place for us and guided us through a complicated transaction because the seller was a family trust. Sarah was a tough negotiator. She kept us well informed. She gave us good advice. We are the proud owners of the home we sought.

– Barry Gorelick

I highly recommend Sarah Kowalzyck as a real estate broker. I was incredibly impressed with Sarah's dedication and support throughout the process of selling my Marin home and purchasing a home in San Francisco. Sarah was professional, resourceful and completely present and accessible throughout my entire home selling and buying process. I know Sarah had many other active listings while she was helping me, but she made me feel like I was her top priority. She is savvy and incredibly smart. If I were to sell or purchase another property, I would hire Sarah again without hesitation.

– Susanne C

I have never seen two more competent, hardworking, professional REALTORS. I have been blown away by their service. I highly recommend them.

– Jennifer A.

Whatever potential your house has will be realized in their capable hands. They are charismatic, imaginative and confident. Their attention to detail is meticulous and their presentation of your home will be stellar.
