Hayley and Mike appreciated the following qualities in Susan…Professional…punctual…committed…self-motivated…organized…went above and beyond answering questions…responded in a timely manner

We chose Susan as our Realtor because she went above and beyond answering all questions we had before starting our home search. We had a very short period of time to find a home and Susan went out of her way to find us what we were looking for in a home and got a commitment from builders about the purchase of the home in a timely manner.

We would definitely hire Susan again and we have already recommended Susan to others.

Five stars out of five
