Sarah is a Texas born, Oklahoma City-based real estate broker. She is the owner and founder of Verbode. Her 4 children keep her on her toes, and she wouldn't have it any other way.
Sarah started Verbode in 2011 alongside Gary Caplinger because she wanted a brokerage that focused on Ethics, Professionalism, Community, and Teamwork, rather than sales metrics. She helped pioneer the niche market of urban real estate in OKC and reached a broader clientele base by focusing on digital marketing.
Sarah began her real estate career in Oklahoma City as a Mortgage Originator at J.P. Morgan in 2001. She was able to relocate to Pismo, CA during this time and experience multiple markets that helped her gain a larger understanding of real estate and how different parts of the country are impacted. This also opened her eyes to the necessity of Green sustainable design in Oklahoma.
After moving back to Oklahoma City, she began investing in and restoring residential properties, and saw an opportunity to get her real estate license. After getting licensed in 2007, she worked in new construction as an agent representative until she saw a need in her network for her real estate knowledge and services.
In addition to serving her clients in real estate, Sarah has a passion for serving her community. She is an active Board Member for the Homeless Alliance, and has been an ambassador for local artists by hosting quarterly art shows at Verbode and donating commission fees from sales. She has also served on various Real Estate Boards, such as the OAR (district representative), MLSOK, and various OKCMAR committees.
Since opening Verbode in 2011, Sarah has been able to serve her clients in over 350 transactions personally, and has helped oversee 1800+ transactions company-wide.
Sarah's experiences in renovation, as well as selling hundreds of historic and urban properties to home buyers and investors, has given her a commanding advantage in the industry. She is as excited about her business today as she was when she started, and can’t wait to see what comes next.
