Speaker

Meet your instructor Sarah!  Sarah knew she wanted to become a lawyer when she was 10 years old. After a stint as a family law attorney in Fairfax, Sarah became General Counsel of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors where she fell in love with real estate. During her tenure at NVAR, she learned not only about running a real estate association but also came to understand the full picture of the real estate industry in the US. With this unique perspective, she partnered up with Toula to form S & T Law Group to provide services to non-profits, trade associations, real estate brokerages, real estate agents, and members of the public involved in real estate transactions.

Sarah lives in Falls Church with her husband and two daughters. She joyfully embraces a slower pace of life and less wildlife at home than Toula… and enjoys cooking, theatre, and traveling as often as possible.
