We would highly recommend her in the future, and should we move back, will be utilizing her! She is truly a wonderful person to work with!"

"Susan is hands down the best realtor you can work with. She represented us on our purchase after we decided to let our prior agent go. We interviewed several agents, but nobody knew the North Shore or Glencoe like Susan. She's honest, hard-working, and is always available for her clients. From the moment we met Susan, we felt like we could trust her. Trust and knowledge were the two most important factors for us - and she epitomizes those qualities. She was never trying to make her commission or push us. She wanted to find us the perfect place at a great price point. She's an expert negotiator. Whether you're buying or selling, talk to Susan. You won't regret it. -Jamie and Sam"
