Clients are saying:
"Susie & Israel were absolutely fabulous. We were relocating from out of State and Susie and Israel made the transition effortless as we moved across the country to be close to family. Susie and Israel really have heart in getting the perfect home for us. I so appreciate their skill set, knowledge and their over the top professional patience in finding our landing place. Thank you so much for caring about us. You both mean the world to us. Thank you!"
"For the last 20 years, Susie and Israel have been our go-to real estate professionals. They have represented us for both selling and buying homes. In 2019, in a terrible market for our area, they guided us on staging and pricing, and we followed their directives. They created beautiful marketing pieces, prepared a marketing strategy, and reached out to their vast network. We sold our house in less than one day! Then they used their expertise and relationship building to help us with a very tough and complicated negotiation on our new home – concluding with the exact results we were hoping for. They are real pros, and lots of fun too! We highly recommend Susie and Israel for your real estate needs!"
"Israel and Susie has helped us with selling one home and buying another. They are fantastic at what they do and no job is too small. They have always made us feel special as if we were their only client even though we know their realtor business is huge. It has been two years since we bought our last house and several times they helped us with issues that was way beyond the call of duty. They are both terrific to deal with and I HIGHLY recommend them as your realtor!"
