With a background in sales and marketing, Sarah McElrath joined the team at Toles, Temple & Wright, Inc. in 2013 as a licensed REALTOR. She grew up in the world of small-business retail, watching as her mother ran the gift shop she owned in Columbia, S.C. It seemed only natural for Sarah to segue into the home décor, design and gift industry herself upon receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing from the University of Alabama.
Sarah moved to Atlanta after graduation, where she served as the showroom manager for Christian Mosso & Associates at AmericasMart. After years of managing showrooms and shops, and working with designers, she developed a keen eye for staging and design. Sarah maintains the mindset of a natural marketer and sales professional, with the kind of important dedication to customer service and flexibility required to be successful in real estate.
After getting married and relocating to Rome, Sarah fell in love with the community. She and her husband, Ben, the president of Marglen Industries, have built their life together in his native Rome. The McElraths have one daughter, Darden, and a son, Harris. Together with their dogs Charlie and Bailey, the family resides in the Between the Rivers Historic District of Downtown Rome.
In her spare time, Sarah enjoys cooking, traveling and animals, and being active in the Greater Rome community.
