About Sarah Ambrose

I am incredibly excited to be a founding advisor at Engel & Völkers Chicago. In 2010, I joined Ames Group Chicago as an integral member of the sales team. In this role, I gained valuable experience staging, showing and selling many different kinds of homes in neighborhoods across the city at a range of price points. I also partnered with many buyers including first timers and downsizers. I am proud of my reputation as a patient and savvy real estate professional and I sincerely enjoy the process of helping each client learn and feel comfortable with our market.

With my background in marketing, I especially appreciate the elegance of the Engel & Völkers brand, and the value of their high standards including quality and competence. I look forward to forming relationships and sharing ideas with advisors in other markets within the United States and beyond. I am also excited to be part of a global company founded in Germany. My father was born in Aalen, Germany, so I am proud to connect to my German roots professionally as well!

I was born in the western suburbs of Chicago and moved to St. Louis as a child. I moved back to Chicago in 2002 for college and never left. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Loyola University and a Master of Science in Integrated Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University. After college, I worked in marketing and sales with a top real estate firm and then pursued my passion for the industry as an agent since 2009.

When I am not busy selling real estate, I spend all of my time with my beautiful daughter and wonderful husband. We recently moved to a townhouse in West Lakeview where we are close to great schools, parks, dining and shopping. I purchased my first condo in 2012 in the Fulton Market and watched the area boom around me. My husband and I then purchased our first home together in the Ukrainian Village and watched it happen again. This is exactly what I live for! I am so incredibly grateful for this new opportunity to take all of my experience in this amazing city and elevate it to the great standards of Engel & Völkers.
