Sarah Mosier-Hoon

Broker/Realtor ®

Licensed Real Estate Broker/REALTOR® Since 2018

    My name is Sarah Mosier-Hoon. I was born and raised in Yakima on Park Avenue by two exceptional Yakima School District employees who taught me about work ethics, integrity, and respecting other cultures. I attended Roosevelt Elementary, Franklin Middle School, and graduated from Eisenhower High School in Yakima. Afterwards, I attended Yakima Community College, Pacific Northwest College of Art, and Central Washington University. I have a great love for the Yakima Valley and Central Washington. 

Like many of my friends, I moved away. However, I eventually returned to Yakima with my husband to raise our two children here. I think the sense of community and a feeling of comfort that a hometown provides, not to mention the proximity to family, has brought me back to Yakima. Our family has lived in Central Washington for five generations. On both sides of my family, agriculture and strong will paved the way for me. My Mother’s family raised cattle and grew hops and apples in the Ahtanum Valley, and my Father’s family managed farms in the Sunnyside area. After college, I worked several jobs as a receptionist/office administration assistant. First at the Seasons Performance Hall and then at Townsquare Media. 

I began working in Real Estate by taking a receptionist job offered by Rick Fairbrook, then working for John L. Scott in 2014. I worked hard behind the scenes for four years until I got my real estate license in 2018. I then went to work as a Buyer’s Agent on the Joanne Melton Real Estate Team for Keller Williams. I also have been listing homes alongside Joanne Melton. I decided to become a Realtor to help others with the biggest purchase of their lives. So, they too can call Central Washington home. I love my clients and am so grateful to them for my continued success. I am also grateful to Joanne Melton for her wealth of knowledge, experience, and professionalism.

Meet Our Support Staff

Karrilee Aggett

Administrative Assistant

This is the second time I have been employed by Joanne.  The first time, over twenty years ago, was just for a few hours per month, helping mail letters. Fast forward to 2019, I heard about a part-time job opportunity that fit my schedule. I applied, not realizing it was working for Joanne, and got the job!     

While the Real Estate industry was new to me in the beginning, miscellaneous office tasks and taking on the creative side of marketing and social media promotion was right in line with what I had been doing for years on my own! I’m thrilled to be part of the Team in assisting in the office and helping our Agents stay on top of their game and connected with their clients!     

When not in the office, I am busy with family and friends, making art with paint or camera or words, and longing for the next trip to the beach!

We have a trusted name with proven results, and we just may hold the key to your new home!
We would be happy to serve you!
