~Susan is a great realtor.  She is kind, considerate and always had our best interest at heart.  She made us feel as if we have known her for a long time.  She was very helpful with finding the right home for us while always having a positive attitude. It was a great experience working with her. I.B.


~Susan worked tirerelessly to market and sell our home.  She accompanied every showing and guided us every step of the way.  Her negotiation skills, communication and work ethic were top notch.  M.A.


~I could not have asked for a better realto to sell my parent's home and guide us through the sensitive process.  Susan's local market knowledge is invaluable and her relationships in the community allowed her to target portential buyers before the house was even on the market.  It sold in 4 days!  All tasks, whether business or interpersonal were accomplished with grace, humility and integrity.  Susan is a true professional and ina  class by herself. I would recommend Susan Brown Burklin Real Estate for any residential real estate needs.  L.W.


~Upon relocating to the North Shore from out of state, I had the great fortune of connecting with Susan while looking for a long term rental property.  She was knowledgable with regards to the schools, neighborhoods and communities.  She helped me find the perfect home for my family.  We continue to work together in my search for a home to buy.  Susan's incite during this process has been invaluable.  L.S.

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."
