Clients are saying:
"Searching , finding then closing in on a reasonably-priced condo in downtown Chicago is like looking for a needle in a haystack but Susie helped make the process as painless as possible. She unceasingly showed us one unit after another standing by our strict requirements and criteria. Chicago is a massive market and is complicated with a variety of opportunities and pitfalls that can be challenging for a professional to navigate; much less a person who is hoping to access a dream home with the right amenities, the best location and the right price. Nobody knows the City like Susie Pearson. She is very professional yet down to earth. She listens to your needs and fills the order. She doesn't try to show or sell you something you don't desire but she will have excellent suggestions. I have a family member who is also a realtor but when it comes to a property search in Chicago ...I use Susie as she is on top of this market. Susie was very patient in answering all questions (via text, email and calls!) that both my husband and I had and at any time of the day. She's a very personable agent and an incredibly genuine individual. She is the type of person who immediately makes you feel like the two of you have been friends forever. Susie Pearson is the most dedicated, hard-working Realtor we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Susie has the patience of a saint. We have had the experience of working with Susie over the last 2 1/2 years. She always goes above and beyond and is great explaining the process. Susie was there every step of the way. She never gave up looking for the right property for us. She knows every block, every building and doorman, and every wrinkle in the market. She brims with insider knowledge. Susie's professionalism, expertise and knowledge of the market were a major source of comfort to us. My husband and I could not have imagined a better partner as we plotted our transition to Chicago . Susie's availability and response to concerns were a comfort in the entire process. With Susie's wise assistance we negotiated a great price on an ideal property at what we regard as one of the best locations in the city. In the end, we found the home of our dreams !!! Highest recommendation!"
"In September of 2014, my husband and I decided to buy a condo in Chicago near the lake. We started looking at online listings and noticed that Susie Pearson was showing a townhouse in our apartment complex. We didn't have a realtor in mind so we contacted Susie.
She was immediately responsive to us and we met to go over the things we were looking for in a home and what our budget was.
She was very professional and began to set up showings for us in a range of locations and sizes. This really helped us pare down exactly what we wanted (or did not want) in a home.
Susie is extremely knowledgeable about so many real estate details and also very professional in her interactions with us. She would schedule several showings, pick us up and we felt that she really took care of us, but also that she respected our time.
After a few weeks, we really had our list of must haves' and our list of what we did not want. Susie began to narrow our searches down and would often email us listings for us to review in order to help us find exactly what we were looking for. We would also send her listings we found online and she was always willing to help.
We never felt any pressure from her to make quick decisions or that she was trying to push any property on us.
We got a call from Susie on October 31, 2014 about a property that had just been listed and we should look at it that day.
We did and it was exactly what we were looking for!
Susie went over all of the condo/building details (along with the listing realtor) and we made an offer on the condo the next day.
Susie was fabulous with the offer / contract negotiations and we had complete trust in her. We closed on our home in early December 2014.
We are forever grateful that Susie was our real estate professional and guide. We consider her our friend.
I call Susie often for help with paint colors or to get a referral for work that needs to be done - she knows her business inside and out and I trust her opinion and her knowledge."
"Susie also helped me find my new home. When selling my old home, she was very responsive in getting my house staged and on the market. She also managed to get a number people through in the slowest days of summer and got a contract within 3 weeks at very close to asking."
"Moving back to Chicago and starting a new job is very stressful. Susie Pearson was a God send to me! Susie had tremendous patience with me showing condos all over the city and never gave up till she found me the perfect place to call home. After seeing dozens of condos we finally found the perfect one. Unfortunately, the seller was a very difficult person to deal with but Susie took all that stress on herself so I can focus on starting my new job. I'm extremely grateful to Susie and will recommend her to all my friends and family. Going forward Susie will be the only agent I work with for all my property needs."
"My husband Jeff and I used Susie Pearson for both selling and purchasing. On both ends we had a fantastic experience. We sold our home and had to find something to move into quite quickly. Susie spent so much time trying to find all of the amenities we wanted and also stay in our price range. She was very successful and made two people so happy. We both honestly cannot say enough about Susie!!!!!"
