PORT ST. LUCIE – RE/MAX Masterpiece Realty congratulates the “Beyond Sold” team for their most recent significant residential sale. The team consists of Realtors® Sarah Taylor and Kathy Willard.

Considering SellingThe “Beyond Sold” team closed on the highest single family home sale in East Lake Village since the market downturn. This Port St Lucie residential community was tremendously impacted during the housing bubble crisis, which lead to quite a number of turnovers. The team noted that their customer, who sold the home for $160,000, had bought it as a foreclosure four years prior. The four-bedroom home, with over 2,200 square feet of living space, was superbly maintained and updated. “Beyond Sold” held an open house, and as a result of mobile technology and the team’s effective open house marketing strategy, a buyer walked through the door and made a competitive offer that was accepted.

When asked about the transaction, Taylor commented; “Although FHA financing and appraisals can be intricate and sometimes difficult to navigate, I diligently worked with all parties involved to make sure that everyone was thoroughly satisfied from start to finish. Sarah also added; “This sales price shows that values are definitely on the rise in this community and our market as a whole!”

Sarah Taylor has been selling homes in East Lake Village since the beginning of her career and has closed over 20 homes in this particular neighborhood. She maintains the website: In addition, Taylor manages one of her own investment properties in the same community. “I am privileged to be living and working in St Lucie County as a Realtor®”, Taylor stated. “I especially enjoy working with sellers and buyers in the East Lake Community. This neighborhood appeals to people from all walks of life, and its location close to the beaches, shopping and medical facilities make it one of the more attractive communities to live in.”

Kathy J Slusser Broker/Owner RE/MAX Masterpiece Realty commented; “I am so proud of this talented and energetic team. This recent sale only underscores Sarah Taylor and Kathy Willard brilliant sales effectiveness. “Beyond Sold”, is a formidable team providing unprecedented real estate service to their customers.
