Meet the Agent

Real Estate One, A Family of Companies

Hello, I am Sarah Burlingame, a licensed Realtor with Real Estate One Elk Rapids and a member of the Traverse City Area Association of Realtors, MAR, and NAR. Since 2001, I have been a committed, full-time agent dealing with multiple listings and sales; including residential, vacant land, and million dollar waterfront homes. Cottages to farms to first-time home buyers, I enjoy all areas of a sale. Growing up on the south end of Torch Lake, I have worked in Elk Rapids, Torch River and Alden for many years getting the opportunity to meet many people. I know this area very well and love showing off it's beauty.

After graduating from Kalkaska High School, I studied at Northwestern College in Traverse City until pursuing a Regional Manager position with a local firm and Mailboxes Etc. While managing sales of over 30 offices in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah and all the travel it entailed, I decided to follow my dream and get my Real Estate license.

I am happily married to my husband, Mike, from Elk Rapids. Our family enjoys hiking, boating, and camping as some of our weekend plans. We love to travel and have hopes of one day getting the chance to live in Hawaii.

I love having the opportunity of welcoming people to this area, working with local residents as well as watching a new home buyer at the closing table when handling over the keys. I'm easy going as well as a professional and will take the time to make sure I understand your needs. I was awarded the BUSINESS GROWTH AWARD for 2012 and 2013 as well as The MILLION DOLLAR PLUS SALES AWARD for 2012 and 2013. In the spring of 2014 I received notice of becoming one of the top 10% of Realtors within our Real Estate One companies and nation wide!

Let me help you find that perfect home or cottage you are looking for. If you are interested in selling or would like to set up an appointment, you can reach her at any time at (231)564-1987 or email at

I look forward to working with you to complete your real estate needs.
