Sarah Hill is the CEO and Founder of Perfect Strangers, a fast growing roommate matching  company servicing New York City. Stricken with the entrepreneurial bug at an early age, Sarah  began her career in high school, where she worked for a residential real estate developer.

She continued her studies and attended UMass Amherst, majoring in Real Estate and

Entrepreneurship. After graduating a semester early, Sarah quickly received a job offer working for property management company. Anxious to begin putting her education and experience  to use, she accepted with a start date days later.
