More about Sabine Rolnick

Every home has a story, Sabine Rolnick loves getting to know the history of a home in order to be better able to sell the home and share the story with future home buyers. Sabine also loves working with people who are looking for their dream home. She helps buyers explore communities and homes to discover what they truly love, need and want in their home. Seeing the joy in people’s faces, and the relief they feel when they sell their homes and/or find their next home has brought her great satisfaction. Her goal is to make selling and buying a home a minimal stress experience. Her professional demeanor, determination and dedication to service the needs of her clients make her an ideal real estate broker.

Sabine Rolnick’s passion for real estate has been growing since 2005, when she began purchasing rental properties, and then added rehabbing distressed properties. Her immense enjoyment of the process of buying and selling homes led her to share her expertise and experience with others as a licensed real estate broker. Sabine appreciates being a Coldwell Banker Realtor because no other company offers the experience and name recognition that can provide her buyers and sellers with confidence that she will help them meet their goals.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
