Sarah Pedersen has real estate in her veins. Her family's involvement in the business sparked her own interest, which led her to spend several years managing property and commercial construction projects. Working with investment clients and traveling to manage on-site projects, Sarah learned how to guide and negotiate favorable deals, keep complicated projects on track, lead teams, deftly juggle the many aspects of a project, and respond effectively to the demands of multiple parties at once.

This was all great training for Sarah's move into residential real estate sales and rentals in New York. Since then, she has been nominated for the Real Estate Board of New York's Deal of the Year and included in Halstead's Sapphire Club, which recognizes sales ranging from $3M to $6M.

Sarah's passion and enthusiasm for real estate drive her success. Her favorite part of her job is positively impacting clients' lives by finding them homes they love. Sarah's main mission is to provide every buyer, seller, and renter with the full-service attention they deserve. She is known for her exceptional ability to understand her clients' needs, her unmatched listening skills, and her patience. She sets her focus on finding exactly the right property for each client, as quickly and painlessly as possible. Client satisfaction is her number one priority, and she doesn't consider a job complete until she has met, if not exceeded, her clients' expectations.

Sarah also has a skillset particularly suited to New York's dynamic, fast-paced, and ever-changing sales and rental markets. She can shift gears quickly while maintaining a laser-sharp focus, and she works decisively and efficiently without sacrificing complete thoroughness. Since entering the real estate field, Sarah has continually stayed abreast of changes, developments, and trends in the industry. It is this level of knowledge that helps her give her clients the best service possible.

Born and raised in Sweden, Sarah grew up traveling back and forth between Sweden and New York, and has been a passionate full-time New Yorker now for over 20 years. Living in Harlem for many years, Sarah has experienced firsthand the extraordinary revitalization and expansion that have occurred in that area.

Sarah is a devoted animal rights advocate, a mentor in the Big Sister program, and a former equestrian rider. She is currently President of her building's co-op board. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys traveling, working out, sports, and spending time with her family and friends. She is fluent in Swedish, and conversational in German and Danish. She is a member of the Real Estate Board of New York.


"Finding an apartment in New York is not an easy matter and can be very stressful. That all changed once Sarah and her team came on board to help us find the perfect place. Very knowledgeable in the market, Sarah's expertise and sense of what would work for me was spot on." - Joi T.
"We would highly recommend working with Sarah; she was very professional and pleasant to work with during our renting process. She was responsive, took time to answer all of our questions, and she made clear what paperwork and documents were needed. The whole process, from first seeing the apartment to signing the lease, was organized and went smoothly, thanks to Sarah's hard work." - Jim S. & Nora M.
"For my husband and me, house hunting with Sarah Pedersen as our agent and advisor felt like having a doctor or lawyer in the family. Even though we were experienced with buying and selling in the suburbs, we had never attempted to look for a property in Manhattan before. Sarah and her team led by Sandy Wilson came very highly recommended by our trusted realtor in Westchester. Sarah is knowledgeable, hardworking, and professional. Every visit was well-planned and every property thoroughly researched. She never forgot the things that were important to our family and helped us think through issues that would not have occurred to us. Our closing process was unexpectedly long and complex, and Sarah and her team supported and guided all parties with patience and grace. We are so grateful. We even found ourselves looking to her for advice on aesthetic elements of the house when we finally purchased it and began renovating it. Needless to say, we recommend Sarah and her team to anyone who is looking for a true partner in a real estate agent." - Caroline O.
