Clients are saying:
"Susan was very professional and personable through the the entire process. She also went a few dozen extra miles for us one pivotal weekend when my husband and I spotted our future home which had just been listed. My husband and I were going out of town for 5 days, and Susan was also going out of town to a wedding but she stopped at the property on her way out of town to preview the property for us and give us her opinion. She urged us to get a competitive offer in from out of state and then come see the house on our way back into town. We followed her advice and VERY happily closed this past Friday! We are SO lucky to have gotten this amazing home that is perfect for us. We are first time home buyers and went through the entire process feeling totally secure and confident we were in good hands. Thank you, Susan!"
"I absolutely loved working with Susan. She is highly professional and really cares about your needs. She definitely has your best interests at heart and as a first time homebuyer, I really appreciated her advice and guidance. Not to mention all the wonderful contacts for finance and lawyers and moving. Susan really knows her stuff. Thank you!"
"Susan was a pleasure to work with. My wife and I were first-time buyers, and she made the whole process less intimidating by helping us every step of the way. Susan went out of her way to make sure we found the right condo for us, offering great advice throughout the search and purchase process. We were constantly amazed at how kind and considerate she was, knowing she is so busy she made us feel like we were her only clients, often texting to check in on us and recommending contractors based on our needs. Even after our purchase, she continues to go above and beyond to make sure we're happy in our new home. I cannot recommend Susan enough, she is a true partner and she is fantastic at what she does."
"Love Susan and @properties! Susan was very available, a pleasure to work with and always kept our best interests in mind. Would work with her again in a heartbeat."
"Susan represented me in both the sale of my former home & purchase of a new home. She alone of the several high end realtors I consulted knew how to market a fire damaged landmark home in the Old Town Triangle. Susan got me a cash offer 35% higher than I had expected and got it in the pre-sale open house. She handled all details very professionally. She then took all of my needs for a new home very seriously and put together very precise and targeted viewings for me. She knows Chicago neighborhoods very well, she didn't waste my time, and assisted me in making the winning cash offer on a beautiful home in the Irving Park area [there were multiple bidders]. I have recommended her to several people looking for a realtor. I will not hesitate to use her again."
