Sara works closely with our clients to ensure the vision and goals they set for their new home in the beginning are the reality they live with in the future. She believes building your home can and should be an enjoyable experience and tailors the process to fit the individual needs of each homeowner.
Sara is a native of Bismarck and currently resides on the family farm in Benedict. Sara earned her bachelor's degree in Interior Design from NDSU in 2007.
