Clients are saying:
"Over the past 20 years, my wife and I have worked with many realtors, but we have never seen anyone work harder than Susi Turk. She is both professional and thoughtful. She went above and beyond her duty in every way. She is the best!"
"We feel so fortunate to have found Susan to help us in the Chicago area. Would never want to use anyone else. She is the greatest."
"This is the second time I have used Susi Turk as my real estate agent. First time was for the purchase of my primary residence in Glenview, and second time to sell a rental condo unit in Evanston. In both transactions, she proved time and time again that she has knowledge of the local North Shore market, excellent negotiation skills, and responsiveness. Susi brought in a photographer to showcase the condo in a way that brought in more showings. All said and done, the unit sold in only two days. I'll be using Susi for any of my future real estate needs."
"Susan and Rick were terrific from start to finish. They handled my listing and sale in a very professional manner. Susan knew the neighborhood and specifically the building very well and was able to sell my house before the listing went public! They helped me with the apartment prep and storage of some of my boxes in order to show my apartment. Thank you so much for the seamless experience."
"We have been looking for a different home for about a year and Susan has been amazing in her support of us and the search that we have been on. She has helped us every step of the way. She was a delight to work with and I have been very happy with all Susan has done for us!"
