Initially I was convinced that it would be advantageous and not that difficult to sell my house without the help of a Realtor. After several months of publicizing the sale of my home using online platforms like Zillow, FSBO.com, and others, I soon realized that it was going to take more than posts on a website to attract buyers.
I needed someone who was familiar with the market, had an active network and the resources to get the word out. In working Sara, my reach to prospective buyers multiplied almost immediately. She was quick to offer her professional skills, extensive experience, and market knowledge. She was prompt in taking the necessary steps to start the process. Sara was genuine, personable and trustworthy; qualities that reinforced my decision to work with her. I appreciated Sara’s positive energy and personality during those challenging final moments when we were completing the sale of the property. I would highly recommend Sara and have numerous times to date. Sara is reliable, and dedicated to her clients. She has a wonderful tenacity about her that contributes to getting the job done.

We have bought and sold 7 properties in the past 16 years and have never had a more hard-working, ethical and knowledgeable realtor.
Sara hiked miles of ranch land with us while we chose our dream ranch in gorgeous SW Colorado. Then she handled all the contracts and paper work with integrity and professionalism. Sara made the long-distance purchase of our Colorado dream retirement ranch effortless because she is super organized, always available and pays close attention to every detail. She’s a rare combo in the realty world! Thanks again, Sara! The Meeks
Sara Staber is a very knowledgeable and competent Realtor. Also a very pleasant person, easy to work with. She was dedicated and tireless in presenting my property for the best sale. She worked with me through the whole process and sale contract, not like other realtors who walk through a house and some of the property, then tell you they will put it on the internet but do nothing beyond that. I highly recommend her. Barbara E.
Sara answered her phone on a Saturday, listened to us, and met us within a few hours with a list of properties to show us. She is a local who understands the details, she always gave her honest opinion and never tried to sell us, but did everything possible to help us find our vision property. She walked, hiked and met with us several times and always was friendly and accommodating. Her knowledge of the area and land values were invaluable to us, her negotiation skills were excellent. I would recommend Sara to anyone who is considering property in Durango. We could not have had a better experience. Randy and Jackie R.
We were introduced to Sara through a mutual friend who had used her services in the past. Being from out of state with busy schedules, Sara asked us a series of personal questions with respect to our preferences. Then she came back with a short list of properties that fit our needs. We were successful in finding and purchasing a property we truly love. Alan M.
Sara and I clicked early on, and she was great for helping me price my home at a level I was happy with. She helped me through what can be a stressful process, and made things run smoothly. I recommend Sara for all real estate dealings in this area. Peggy Y.
Sara handled the sale of several ranch properties for our family. For ranch land in Southwestern Colorado, water rights are very important. Sara was very knowledgeable of the myriad of water related issues related to the land we were selling, which really helped us best decide how to represent the property. Along with good marketing and representation, we were able to get full asking price offers, even in the challenging market of the past few years. She managed the complicated contracts and associated issues with the property pleasantly and efficiently. Matt B
We have worked with Sara repeatedly as buyers and as sellers in 2011, 2013, and 2014. She is professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and friendly. If you’re looking at buying or selling you’d do well to consider working with Sara. Steve I.
Sara had been highly recommended to us by friends who had relocated to Durango, and we got it touch with her when we came. She has helped us with all our real estate needs and questions – – and more! She knows the area extremely well, and she’s terrific.
What a great experience it was to work with Sara Staber. Although in the end I did not purchase, she knew the inventory thoroughly, listened to my needs, got back to me quickly, and was very easy to speak to. Wish I had been able to complete the purchase. I will absolutely use Sara again. Janet K.
Sara’s pre-listing advice helped us present our home to potential buyers in the best possible manner, resulting in a quick sale. Her hard work, honesty, and expert negotiating skills made the transaction proceed smoothly from start to finish. Deb D.
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Sara on the sale of a vacant residential lot that had languished on the market for several years in a down market. She did a fantastic job of marketing the property (using drone images) and negotiating with the buyer’s agent to consummate the sale. When a pesky title issue emerged, she had it resolved almost immediately. Sara is the consummate professional, and the ultimate “local” when it comes to her knowledge of the Durango market. Personally, she is intelligent, articulate, and has a great sense of humor! Anyone looking for an outstanding agent in the DRO market need look no further than Sara Staber. Don A.
We wanted to sell our rental property and since our main home was already listed with Sara we asked her to list the rental house. Sara looked at comps and came up with what we thought was a fair price. Within a few weeks we had a cash offer and the house sold. Sara was on top of the negotiations and kept us informed at all times. I would highly recommend her should you need a real estate agent! Robert D.
Sara handled the sale of our home in Durango with professionalism and friendliness. She demonstrated a common sense approach to all issues. She is trustworthy and very knowledgeable about the real estate market. Nancy C.
Sara helped me sell my previous home as well as purchase my current one. During the time my previous home was for sale, my husband passed away suddenly; she was very kind and supportive during this difficult time in my life. Her computer skills helped me find my current home, and her negotiation skills helped me buy it at a price I could afford. She continues to be a good friend. Stephanie D.
We have worked with Sara as our agent on four transactions over the past eight years or so. Two on the buy side, two on the sell. In all cases we found that she brings top levels of market knowledge and professionalism to the table. She’s also prompt, proactive and personable. Sara is a leader in this part of CO!

Danielle and I are first time home buyers. Fortunately for us we were pointed in the right direction, to Sara Staber. She patiently walked us through the entire process, and answered all of my first time nervous buyer questions in great detail, sometimes more than once, because she understands the human side of the real estate business as well. Overall, our experience with Sara and her staff was fantastic. They are professional, honest, reliable and made the complicated process of purchasing a home strait forward and easy. I would, without hesitation, recommend Sara and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell in this competitive real estate market. Sean & Danielle M.
Sara’s computer skills in setting a program that emailed to me all properties I would be interested in was extremely helpful in findng my new home. She answered all my questions about the home and the HOA quickly and clearly. Her negotiation techniques enabled me to buy the home at a price I could afford. Stephanie Dean
Sara helped find this cute little house. She was quick to get us in to see the property and negotiated the sale before it had a chance to get away! She is very knowledgeable about the Durango market and surrounding areas. She was on top of every detail from start to finish. Definitely recommend Sara if you are in need of a top notch Agent. Michelle M.
Sara was excellent at lining up showings. I think she actually did more than the realtor that represented the buyer.
Jeff & Diane M.
Sara is an amazing agent. Experienced, intelligent, high energy and very personable. I contribute the success of the sell of my house to her professionalism and dedication to her work. I would highly recommend Sara for any real estate transactions. Darla W.
