Sarah Richardson is one of the preeminent leaders of residential real estate in the country. As CEO and founder of Tru Realty, she is responsible for the daily operations and oversight of multiple growth strategies the brokerage carries out. In 2010, Richardson launched Tru Realty to better serve a marketplace that was seeing a shift from auction-centric fix/flips to an MLS flow. With an inspired vision to be a leader in residential real estate, Richardson built a strong and dedicated team who closed an astonishing 450-plus deals in the brokerage’s first six years of operation. What’s more, nearly every deal was profitable, yielding double-digit returns. Since Tru Realty’s inception, Richardson has performed a variety of tasks, including recruiting, marketing, training, tech implementation and more. In 2017, she was the first REALTOR® in the U.S. to execute an investor cash transaction with blockchain (using the Ethereum protocol) in partnership with Propy, one of the brokerage’s key tech partners.
