Clients are saying:
"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 Brown Burklin did a wonderful job assisting me with the sale of my home. She is very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and I really appreciate how she kept me informed throughout the process. I highly recommend her."
"Susan had my listing for 2 years. Many potential buyers were turned off by the home’s location. She was positive yet practical, kind but direct. I felt very much that we were in the process as a team. She always made herself available for showings. Ultimately I received two offers and she handled that extremely well also. She is a complete professional. She has my highest recommendation."
"I worked with Susan Brown Burklin as she was assisting my parents sell their home and find a rental unit. She is not only knowledgeable and responsive, but built a caring and trusted relationship with them. She worked aggressively but delicately as a selling agent and had a great style in finding and negotiating a rental lease. She clearly understands her client's needs. She is able to balance of both the business and the personal aspects of selling and buying transactions, with a uniquely personal touch."
"Susan is the consummate professional. She is positive and forthright and conducts herself with the highest integrity. Our transaction action was not an easy or straightforward one yet she was always there with an encouraging word and a helpful suggestion. I would recommend Susan unreservedly to anyone seeking out residential real estate services."
