Giving Our Very Best to Our Clients is Very Good for Them. And Exceptionally Good for Us.

 90 Percent of Our Clients Come From Other Clients.

Our family has worked with Sarah and her team for years and they never disappoint us. Always consistent, dependable, and trustworthy. Anytime we’ve had questions or needed advice, she was always honest and available. The last time we worked with her, she went over and beyond and made a conscious effort to put us and our needs first! Thank you, Sarah, with us you have forever clients and friends!

Kisha Kish

We worked with Sarah and her group for about 6 months through all steps of our preparing for and completing the sale of our home. We were well informed and advised during each step. Chatel Group maintained a professional approach to our sale and most importantly brought a higher level of influence because of their history and success selling real estate in the Atlanta Georgia metro. They aren't just any group of agents like most might pick but came as a referral from someone we trust and we could not be happier with how it turned out for us.

Jerry Ruth

Sarah is amazing!! She walked us through the entire process being first time home buyers, and despite the crazy market, helped us find an incredible townhouse within our timeline for leases ending. She got us in for a tour and had our offer accepted all within 72 hours. We have loved working with her - she’s super resourceful and kind! So thankful for Sarah’s help.

Mary Martin Harper

Dear buyers and sellers Sarah and Peter where point on with home improvements to make our house shine. Make the move seamless by using this group. You will be most happy. They are special.

Ann Fambrough

Sarah helped us sell our Virginia Highlands home for top dollar! We ended up not even having to list our home and were able to negotiate no due diligence period, no appraisal contingency, and 30 days to closing. Sarah was always available to answer any urgent questions and kept us calm during what could have been a very stressful process. She even hosted a going away party for us once we moved out of our home. We love Sarah!

Emily Dambrin

I interviewed 3 experienced realtors and they all sent me comps and said they would drive by the house to take a look. Sarah was the only one who actually drove by the house and more accurately selected appropriate comps for estimating our listing price. I was a little nervous listing at this price but went on with it and the house, which needed extensive renovations, sold quickly.

Steven Ethridge

Sarah & Lisa did a great job helping us sell our home in Morningside. Sarah made several visits to our home in preparation for the sale, providing advise and support throughout the process. Everything ran smoothly from the beginning of the listing to the sale.

Georgene Comparetto

Sarah and Lisa were both incredible to work with. I was not planning to sell my condo and buy a new home this year, but when market conditions made that seem like a good idea, Sarah provided quick feedback and helped make the process smooth, fast, and easy. It's been quite the year for all of us, but Sarah and Lisa made my home selling and buying process about as low stress as it could possibly be! I could not be more excited about this transition (and my new backyard!) or more grateful for the incredibly responsive, transparent, and flexible team I had the pleasure of working with.

Amelia Conrad

Sara and Lisa were the best, and had my back every step of the way on the sale of my family home. Couldn't be any happier with the service that I received.

Emily Dambrin

Sarah was absolutely wonderful during the entire home buying process. We met Sarah at an open house early in 2020 while exploring different neighborhoods and areas in Atlanta. For the months that followed, Sarah periodically reached out to us to check in on our job search and sent available homes in our desired Atlanta areas. Once we were ready to move back to Atlanta, Sarah went to work—researching family friendly neighborhoods, researching top elementary schools, etc. She made the process so seamless that we chose the perfect home in less than 48 hours. We will most definitely use Sarah for any additional moves in the future.

A Conrad

Sarah sold our house in six days! Our Open House resulted in four offers. She worked with us to get our house ready to put on the market within one week after we decided to sell. Sarah is extremely patient and understands the challenges and emotions selling your home can bring. She communicated with us regularly to keep us informed from the day we signed with her to the day we moved.

Cathy B

Working with Lisa was great. Her level of responsiveness is unmatched. Phone, email, text. Always got an immediate response. We are very thankful for the diligence, honesty and hard work Lisa put into this transaction. Can’t wait to work with her again.

Imedina B.

Lisa, is great to work with. She has a patient approach and clearly has our best interest in mind. We secured our perfect place with her help and are very happy that she was there for us.

Zillow Reviewer

Our thanks go out to Lisa Tennyson Black and Sarah Chatel for selling our rental house in record time. They actually sold it for full asking before it even hit the market. I’m convinced that it was all in the preparation. They recommended the colors for a complete overhaul, coordinated with contractors on repairs, and staged it perfectly. I literally didn’t have to do any work, which is preferable given my packed schedule!

L Tran

Our realtor Lisa Black was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, attentive and really listened to help us find the perfect home for our family. We trust her and are so happy with our newly purchased home.

Steffney

A very professional and result-oriented lady. Sarah had assisted me in getting my home ready for sale while preparing me to acquire my new home. She also works with a team of highly skilled people who can get the work done in a way to give a great appeal to a home ready for the market.

Vuvu Manseka

We had to go through two agents before we found Sarah. Her recommendations were right on target and the house finally sold! I highly recommend her to anyone considering selling

Anne Weingartz

We were very pleased with Sarah’s prompt attention to everything, her helpful advice and her friendly demeanor. She was continually optimistic and encouraging throughout the process. She worked hard to help us prepare the house for sale, get it in the best condition possible and stage it for photos and visits. Her team was always cheerful and efficient.

Leigh Allen

Sarah and her team were extraordinary. Sarah is a great listener, a great strategist and exceptionally proactive. She has a deep understanding of the marketplace and keeps you informed of its performance ongoing. She is masterful in staging a home to attract what buyers are seeking. I consider her a hybrid of real estate guru, master decorator and marketing strategist. And, she is delightful to work with.

Jeff C Peters

Sarah and her team sold my house in two days, after selling my neighbors in less than a week 7 months ago. Sarah was very attentive and advocated for my needs as a seller. Thanks so much and keep up the great work Sarah and team.

Schnyeder Destine

Sarah was referred to me by my former real estate agent who had moved her real estate business to Florida. The first time I met Sarah, we connected instantly, in fact, I remember telling her that I felt like I had known her for a lot longer. My husband and I were first time home buyers, so Sarah offered the professional, but "motherly" guidance we both needed. When we viewed homes, she pointed things out that could be potential problems, which was helpful in our decision making. Sarah guided us throughout the entire process, from recommending a lender--who turned out to be awesome, to recommending contractors, she got quotes for repairs that our home needed, and she also negotiated our deal beautifully. We were truly in good hands with Sarah, she is full of integrity, and is highly responsive. Sarah's out of the box thinking is truly unparalleled in today's market. If there is a home that you have your eye on, and you are ready to act, you would do yourself a disservice to go with any other agent besides Sarah Chatel. Sarah will get the deal done!!

K Barnes

Sarah was a great agent. She was very responsive and knew the real estate market well in our area. She was able to sell our home before it even went on the market. I would highly recommend her.

Barb F Brown

Sarah was a teriffic realtor. She came to our home and helped us devise a plan to sell. She advised us on what we needed to fix, remove, store etc. We did everything she suggested and sold our home in 3 days at the asking price. This was in the winter of 2014 which was still a difficult time to  sell a home. I would highly recommend her as she provided us with excellent, professional service.

Claudia Hiebert

Sarah did an awesome job helping my husband and I explore the initial possibility of listing our home well before we were ready to pull the trigger. She stayed on top of our concerns and brought us plenty of market information and comps to help us through the thought process. Once Sarah had the  listing and we had a contract for a buyer - Sarah stayed on top of the buyer's due diligence process and helped keep the emotions of selling a home you have custom designed, built and lived in check. Overall - we were very pleased with Sarah's professionalism and can do attitude. Without it - I am not sure I would have made it to the closing table. Once our home was sold - she then went the extra mile to help us find interim housing that has turned out to be "right on the money" making for a wonderful transition.

N D Halwig

Sarah Chatel is an amazing realtor. We recommend her wholeheartedly. She is always friendly, positive, professional, hard working and available. After having no activity with our first realtor, Sarah was recommended to help sell our home. She started work immediately - upgraded the staging (even using some of her outdoor furniture), getting better professional pictures, working on great descriptions, and having inviting caravans and numerous open houses. The activity increased right away. She kept our listing fresh with videos and description additions. I'd work with her again.

Zillow user38927079

Sarah Chatel was the consummate professional. She handled the details of selling our home and truly partnered with us to make sure we maximized the value. It was comforting to know that she was on our team. I would recommend her services with no reservations.

T Mullins, Jr.

Sarah and her group were masterful at providing us information on properties, getting us in to see the property we wanted, and landing the contract on it despite a bidding war. She had the right folks to set up our mortgage, do the inspections, and was always one step ahead on thinking what we needed to get the purchase done. We are looking forward to enjoying our new property and have found a lifelong friend in real estate. Thank you, team!

Janet Kishbaugh

Sarah's understanding of the marketplace, her unequaled marketing skills and total professionalism is what makes her one to the top real estate agents in Atlanta. I was so impressed with the exquisite photography that made an unbelievably beautiful presentation for the website. My home sold in days for top dollar. What a complete pleasure it was working with Sarah.

J Huston

Sarah sold our house in six days! Our Open House resulted in four offers. She worked with us to get our house ready to put on the market within one week after we decided to sell. Sarah is extremely patient and understands the challenges and emotions selling your home can bring. She communicated with us regularly to keep us informed from the day we signed with her to the day we moved.

Cathy D

Sarah was such a bright guiding light and her experience made all the difference while helping us navigate today's crazy market. At times when it seemed impossible and became stressful, she remained poised, positive, and so helpful. After we finally found our house we couldn't ask for a better representative to handle negotiations, inspections, and contractors. Ultimately, we got exactly what we were looking for and couldn't have done it without her. 10/10

Devon McKee

Outstanding knowledge and support selling two properties. Trusted to sell my family home and a commercial property in Buckhead.

Mark Butcher

I love working with Lisa! She's been my realtor for years and has helped me sell and buy a number of properties, and I highly, highly recommend her. She's a consummate professional. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and the ins and outs of the process, but she's enthusiastic, caring, and compassionate, and she will stand by you every step of the way. Even though buying and/or selling a home can be stressful, Lisa has a calm and confident presence that lets you know she has things under control. She's a true partner in the process, and I cannot imagine buying or selling a home without her!

Shala Nicely

The best real estate company I have ever dealt with. Sarah Chatel is professional, experienced, helpful and personal. Highly recommend!

Nina Shirokova

Professional, knowledgeable and responsive. With Sarah and Lisa’s guidance, we readied our house for sale, then they had beautiful photos taken and after listing on a Thursday afternoon, we had 5 offers and a contract by Sunday night, over listing price. They stayed involved, through closing and beyond. desires. There aren’t enough words to describe how much we appreciate, love and respect her. Home buying is an intimate process and she has earned our trust and respect.

E Jetton

We met Sarah Chatel completely by happenstance - newly married and just starting the home search process. We had no expectations. In our first meeting, Sarah took the time to sit down with us and get to know our stories. This was so important in the home buying process - we wanted to truly meld our  lives, desires, and cultures together for a home perfect for us. It was not an easy task. Sarah was patient with us, gave good counsel and advice, and showed us as many houses as we wanted to see. We often joked that she was our marriage counselor as well! When we found the house we wanted (finally!), Sarah was our biggest advocate and navigated us through the process expertly. She is a hustler in the BEST way. Her motor never stops and she always tries to guide clients to their needs and desires. There aren’t enough words to describe how much we appreciate, love and respect her. Home buying is an intimate process and she has earned our trust and respect.

Zillow Reviewer

Lisa was exceptional in helping me get my unit rented out. She was helpful in answering any questions I had and gave me great advice on how to negotiate my lease terms and any requests I had for potential tenants. Her professionalism was unimpeachable and I knew she had my best interests at heart.  I look forward to getting her assistance again when I need a new tenant.

Zillow Reviewer

Sarah did an excellent job selling our home. After suggesting minor improvements to make the house more desirable, Sarah's photographer took very flattering photos of our home and had it on the market immediately. Within 3 days, we had multiple offers on the house and it was sold immediately.  Highly recommend!

Mark Russo

I wanted to pass along a big thanks for your recommendation suggesting Sarah’s team for my daughter’s recent townhome search. Morgan moved in on Monday and is delighted with her new house. A special thanks (shout out) goes to Sarah’s partner, Lisa Black, as she navigated some difficult waters to secure the transaction/timeframes.  You really find out what customer service is all about when you see it in full swing, which is what I saw/experienced with Lisa over the last 60 days. Again, thanks for the recommendation and I’ll certainly pass along my positive experience to others searching for homes in the Brookhaven area (Morgan has a bunch of friends)

Referral Client

Sarah and her team are great and extremely thorough. As someone who is selling their house from out of state I wouldn’t want my house in other hands!

Patrick Simmonds

My wife and I worked with Sarah on our recent home purchase and she was excellent to work with. Sarah has extensive knowledge of the real estate market in the different neighborhoods in Atlanta and was able to steer us in the right direction during our search. She was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in Atlanta!

Daniel Mills

Very professional and knowledgeable from start to finish. Spent a lot of time with us finding the right property and was there through the entire process to facilitate a smooth closing. Wonderful experience!

Kim Hott, MD

Sarah came to us as a referral from a good friend. She was extremely helpful, especially for us not being from the area. She was more than just a real estate agent, but a caring, real, and charismatic person that always has her clients’ best interest at heart and will effectively go to bat for you.  We highly recommend Sarah and plan to continue to contribute to her success through numerous referrals.

Sandy Tran

As first time home buyers, and moving into Atlanta from out of state, we have been very fortunate to have had Sarah and her team have our backs. They made the process as smooth as possible, and we were able to buy our dream home thanks to their excellent communication and negotiation skills. In addition, they made us feel welcome in our new town by inviting us to their social events. We really enjoyed working with Sarah and her team and would recommend her wholeheartedly!

Gaby Ritfeld

Sarah was great to work with! She was very professional and helped me complete the sell of my home remotely, as I moved out of state for a job. Any issues that came up, she was on top of and helped address them promptly, thus making the sell a breeze!

Zack Humphries

While finding an agent isn't very difficult, finding one with a range of skills to help buy and sell your property isn't. It was very easy to trust Sarah to stage, market, and show our properties in a way that was responsible and respectful to our family. And the results show: staging our condo  with Sarah resulted in an over-ask sell in 45 minutes. In addition, the pictures and marketing of our single-family home resulted in a sell in 6 days. There is no finer agent and team in Atlanta.

Parker & Stacie Holloway

Sarah sold two of our houses while assisting in the purchase of our new home as well as our two daughters. Probably the most impressive thing she did for us was to lay out a process of what we needed to do to best position our house of 20 years for the most optimal sale possible. I resisted at  first because it required a lot of work. However, because I believed in her and her expertise, I acquiesced and our house sold on the very first day it was on the market and we received the exact offer we wanted. We were very, very happy and grateful for Sarah's expertise and experience.

Greg Hiebert

Despite the market's sudden turnaround and several homes falling through, Sarah helped us find a great home in our dream neighborhood! She was diligent, resourceful and always stayed positive though what could have been a very difficult process. We would definitely use Sarah again.

Emily Dambrin

Sarah is very professional, I use Sarah for all my real estate needs . I’ve been working with Sarah for years and she always gets the job done ! I look forward to working with her for years to come.

M Rowe Investments

Sarah is nothing short of a professional guru knowledgeable in every aspect when it comes to real estate. Professionally she is great to work with, and personally she is a gem. Get to know Sarah Chatel and you'll find her great works above and beyond real estate is what keeps us coming back trusting her for all of our home buying/selling/renting needs.

nachanse

From beginning to end Sarah was professional, knowledgeable and always available to answer our questions. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs!

Merry Mullins

Sarah has handled multiple investment transactions for me. She always gets the best price quickly and effectively for selling and buying. She also helps me find solid, reliable tenants.

Kirscott Developments

After having no activity with our first realtor, Sarah was recommended to help sell our home. She started working immediately- upgrading staging (even using some of own furniture), getting better professional pictures, working on great descriptions, and having inviting caravans (nice snacks) and open houses. The activity increased right away. Sarah was always friendly, positive, professional, hardworking, and available. Either she or a member of her team was present at every showing pointing out the positives of your house. She kept our listing fresh with videos and changes or additions. My husband and I highly recommend Sarah Chatel to be your realtor!
