Clients are saying:
"Susan was incredible to work with. She was always available and knew exactly what we were looking for. I felt that she was invested in our journey to find the perfect place and she made the whole process stress-free and easy! Highly recommend Susan if you’re looking to buy or sell!"
"Susan is an amazing broker. Attentive, available and assertive. She was always available to talk or show me a new listing, and was very honest in her thoughts on each property. I will absolutely use her again."
"Susan was excellent in all areas of my dealings with her in both the sale of my home and the purchase of my townhome. Susan has an excellent understanding of the market, especially in Highland Park. Her subject matter expertise for selling and purchasing a home exceeded my expectations. She was extremely professional in all of my communications with her, as well as her approach to closing two big deals. Her responsiveness was always very prompt, making me feel that she was always readily available."
"I had lived in my home for 33 years by the time I met Susan. I was just looking around to see if there might be another home for me and my partner. Susan approached the situation with the greatest sensitivity and understanding. We moved through the process of listing and selling my old home and searching for and buying our new home at a pace we set and were comfortable with. She hit the sweet spot perfectly in pricing my old home and it sold in three days. She went on to a challenging negotiation for our new home purchase without missing a beat and helped us to successfully close on our purchase two months after selling the old home. I have complete confidence in Susan’s abilities as a real estate professional. She is extremely responsive - always returning calls/texts immediately. She brings her knowledge and experience to every step in the process from the photo shoot to recommending movers.
But, perhaps most important to me was her sensitivity to the emotional roller coaster that is buying and selling a home. She was my steady rock through it all. I highly recommend her without hesitation."
"Susan was a consummate professional in the selling of my mom's house in Highland Park.She not only held open houses but always followed up on any interest .Advertising appeared in different venues. She closely monitored the progress of a contract and when it looked like the deal was falling apart she contacted other brokers who had expressed interest and was able to put an even better contract together.She went above and beyond getting signatures from the 2 powers-of-attorneys ( one party was out-of-town) as well as making sure the closing was successful."
