Welcome! My name is Sarah Rowland and I joined the Lake Forest, Illinois, Coldwell Banker office 20 years ago - having lived in London, Hong Kong and Tokyo prior to moving to the North Shore. I work with both buyers and sellers and apply my international experiences to helping transfereees settle into this beautiful area. My husband and I have raised 4 children here and I love working with young families, helping them with all aspects of settling in to a new community, from arranging sitters to schools, clubs etc.
As a full-time, full service professional, I have a proven track record of getting results for my clients. List/purchase price never determines my commitment to your transaction. I can help you sell or buy everything from million-dollar-plus estates to "regular" single family homes, condos & townhomes, rentals and vacant land.
