A South Carolina native, Sarah grew up in the state's capitol of Columbia where she attended Hammond School. Her love of art, architecture, fashion design and culture led her to the University of South Carolina. At USC Sarah majored in Fashion Merchandising and Design and had the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy. Her education continued while working under Vera Wang in NYC with the public relations department. A dream come true; working with and learning from such a dynamite business woman! In 2009 Sarah settled in Charleston, SC with the support from her 3 brothers who are avid outdoorsmen.
Since returning to Charleston, Sarah has worked in management for Cynthia Rowley out of NY, started a private home decorating business and worked in property management on Kiawah Island. Her love of styling and home decor led her to her career in real estate. Sarah loves assisting her clients in finding the perfect home for their style and enjoys using her design talents to stage her listings. As a REALTOR, Sarah is dedicated, detail oriented, creative and conscientious. She currently lives in Mount Pleasant with her husband, David Francis Marion and their two young children. Sarah loves all that Charleston has to offer her family with the Southern hospitality. From boating the waterways and fishing to the theatre, art walks, shopping on King Street and exploring the constantly evolving culinary options Sarah's living her best life in Charleston!
Sarah believes in "grow where you are planted" (or replanted)! So she volunteers to raise awareness and funds for LLS: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Impact 360. In addition to volunteering at events for her children's school.

PRAISE FOR SARAH
"Simply put, you are the best. I have never felt more comfortable and cared for around someone I just met. A home is a big purchase and so much of it does essentially happen behind the scenes where we aren’t involved, and not once did anything feel shady or not communicated. Everything was up front, in the moment, clear, and to the point. We never ended a phone call, text, email, etc confused or unclear on our end. Honestly once we found our home the process almost seemed “too easy” and had a little bit of doubt that possibly something would come up at closing that we weren’t going to be prepared for, BUT that is not the case. Closing actually went BETTER then we could have ever thought. We are happy and so thankful for you, the service you provided, and the intentional care you offered us. I honestly miss house hunting because we don’t get to hang out with you and ride around Charleston on the weekends anymore!!!"
"Sarah is a versatile person. I presented her with two unusual situations and she handled them both in excellent fashion. Going beyond her professional competence, she is a pleasure to work with. She is compassionate and understanding. I find all this a rare combination."
"Having bought and sold several homes I found Sarah to be the consummate professional. She was a good listener and quickly produced a number of possibilities that met my wishes. She was easy to work with kept me well informed and proved to be an effective negotiator and advocate. I recommend her highly."
"I am very pleased with the professionalism, responsiveness and perseverance of Sarah Marion in the sale of my investment property. We knew from the beginning that it would take the right buyer and that Sarah had her work cut out for her. It was her shear tenacity that ultimately brought multiple offers to the table after refusing to leave no stone overturned. She continued her engagement through the entire process, personally overseeing buyer requested repairs and inspections. I am so pleased with her efforts and proud to call her my agent."
