Sarah Hislop


The title of “Controller” falls short of describing the variety and scope of the work Sarah does with Teakwood Builders. As one of the company’s longest standing employees, Sarah is constantly checking the nuts and bolts of the firm’s daily operations and does everything from budgeting and forecasting, HR, compliance, accounts payable and receivable, service & warranty coordination, and almost everything in between. She’s helped the company grow from its very beginnings and her loyalty is inspired by the fact that “we work to an incredibly high standard.” She is truly a driving force behind the company you see today.

Ten years ago, seeing a natural fit with her lifelong residency in Saratoga, her valuable source of contacts around the community and her interest in architecture and the building industry, Jim Sasko encouraged her to study for her real estate license. Sarah is also a licensed real estate salesperson with Select Sotheby’s International Realty, successfully balancing and integrating her career at Teakwood with finding the perfect owners for the area’s large inventory of beautiful homes.
