Sara Alvarado Featured in Wisconsin State Journal Article

Sara AlvaradoWe were excited to see Sara Alvarado featured on the front page of the Business section in Wisconsin State Journal’s Sunday paper.

“When Sara Alvarado and her husband, Carlos, came to Madison from Mexico in 2002, they had seven suitcases, their 18-month-old son Alex — and little else.

“We started from scratch,” said Alvarado, now president of Alvarado Real Estate Group, which has six agents and focuses on residential properties. “Having grown up here and with a background in real estate, I jumped into real estate as a Realtor for a large brokerage.
