As late as Spring of 2021 I didn't even know I was going to sell my home. I am a widower with two adult children and one had already moved out and for the last few years I had been considering what to do with the inevitable arrival of "empty nest" status. But after a year of lockdown and pandemic any major lifestyle moves like that seemed on hold. Then my younger child did leave just as I began to notice house sales booming in my town. I began to consider a long-held, but not articulated, notion to return to New York City after my quarter-century sojourn raising my family in South Orange, NJ. The timing seemed right: the seller's market was hot in my neighborhood and there were deals to be had on apartments in Manhattan. But without a prior timeline I had not done the work I thought my house would require to list high or even considered staging it for sale. I could have waited for a year but for all kinds of reasons the time seemed right. NOW. After attending a Sue Adler virtual seminar I decided to ask about the merits of an "as is" sale. Within a week one of her associates had visited my home and discussed the merits and minuses of such a move. I decided time was as much of a factor as anything else in my decision and within two weeks my house was listed for a number researched and recommended by the Sue Adler team. After a weekend we had multiple offers all over asking and in three it weeks I was under contract. A month later the sale closed and I was living in my new apartment on the upper west side of Manhattan. Some of the process was exasperating and frustrating as I had not sold a house before—and there was additional complexity in securing my New York apartment. But anytime I needed to be walked back from the ledge the Sue Adler team were there. They acted as a support “care team” taking me through every step in the journey from the first consultation to the final closing. It was total customer care: from crafting the listing to recommending movers to obtaining the necessary permits and even providing ideas on where to sell or donate downsized items. Everyone I dealt with - Laurie, Jessica, Aislinn, Erika and Luciano- expressed an empathy alongside their professionalism that went above and beyond mere service in support of a commission. I’ve achieved a goal that seemed like a pipe dream only a few months ago. As I walk my dogs in Central- or Riverside Parks or look out from my new apartment onto 107th Street, off of Broadway, I am still in the “pinch me” mode. We did it! My heartfelt thanks to the Sue Adler Team and my strongest endorsement!

When we decided to sell our home of 15 years during a pandemic, we knew we needed Laurie to represent us. Laurie had been showing us homes in the area for a number of years (we were local and only looking opportunistically), so we got to know her well and always appreciated her deep market knowledge and responsiveness but even more, her genuine care for her clients. We knew she would handle our biggest transaction - the sale of our family home -- with the same care and professionalism. Boy were we right! Laurie and her team exceeded our high expectations! Laurie oversaw every detail of the sale, including ensuring the safety of our family and home. She was professional, prepared, candid, fair, and never pushy. She did extensive research to make sure she recommended the correct listing price for our home (not just a low price that assured a quick sale) and then diligently (and successfully) pursued getting that price. Her judgment at all turns was superb and she and her team made the process virtually effortless. She got us to a successful closing within 2 months of listing our home. At every turn, she was there. We were privileged to have worked with her and her team!

Laurie and The Sue Adler Team is the right choice when selling a home!  Having had another Realtor under contract for a full 6 months with limited 'work' or interactions I choose The Sue Adler Team because of their business model, i.e., a true team approach.  It was great working with a team that had expertise in specific areas of real estate transactions.  Far different than the 'single' Realtor approach that I have had my experience with over the years. Trust them!  Everything won't necessarily go smoothly or to one's liking in buying or selling a home but trouble is mitigated when necessary by Laurie and The Sue Adler Team.

Laurie and her team smoothed a lot of bumps for us in what could have easily turned into a nightmarish process. Our buyers were fastidious, and the expertise shown by Laurie and her team helped us navigate the various situations that popped up. Laurie also displayed great patience as we dragged our feet to put our house on the market, showing she has a strong ability to know her clients and to respond to their needs. We followed Laurie's advice and that of her colleagues throughout the process, and we're extremely glad we did. I can confidently recommend her to anyone looking to sell a home in the area.

Working with Laurie and her team were absolutely wonderful. They were very knowledgeable very responsive, communicated all the time and kept me posted on all actions that I needed to do, as well as what was happening with our sale of our home. I would highly recommend using Laurie and her team and will do so again. You won't be disappointed!!!

We were able to retire to Northern Virginia to purchase a dream home in May near grandkids after the expert help and guidance from your persuasive and experienced and God's grace. A follow up invite from Amy Esposito to participate in a home selling webinar was the spark that accelerated our plans to prepare our home for maximum appeal in this unprecedented robust market versus next year. At first we strongly resisted recommendations to paint our honey oak kitchen cabinets and rec room paneling Winds Breath beige but before and after pics offered by Laurie Silver-Corsello were more compelling that those less gently offered suggestions by a top Chatham realtor who wanted to list our home for $100,000 less. We believe that God acted through your responsive team and contractors including Erika Olesen, Aislinn Cholet, Jessica Lascar and Leah Gomberg and Hugh Strong and Ben Weisfelner to give us the resources just in time to transform our home in just 3 weeks on a $12,000 budget that was readily recouped with $745,000 cash offer on first weekend of showings with 3 other offers in excess of the asking price as a back-up. Hugh Strong's foreman Ivan went above and beyond to continue painting interior rooms and touching up exterior surfaces on an only where needed budget just days before listing even after learning of the sad news that his brother Eduardo who is new father was suffering from a brain tumor! I must say that the process was still an exhausting nail-biter between decluttering to local storage, sorting through a lifetime of memorabilia, closing out 40 year old permits and enduring invasive inspections (including colonoscopy of our sewer line.) but the sale was closed within our aggressive deadline after a $11,500 credit issued to the buyer. The remarkable thing was that with these mostly cosmetic improvements, that our home fetched a similar price for our home that has the Midtown direct railroad track in the backyard as those with substantially more updates/remodeling in the quieter side of Woodland Road. A home warranty funded by Laurie Silver-Corsello helped cement the deal. Please accept our thanks for superior outcome!

Laurie Silver-Corsello did a great job helping me selling my house. She listened to what was important to me and accommodated my eccentricities. Her strategy played out exactly the way she said it would. I believe the Sue Adler team is very knowledgeable and professional and I’m completely satisfied with their representation.

We were very satisfied with Laurie and the Sue Adler team. They were very professional, thorough and responsive. Although, we are slightly disappointed with the ultimate sale price, I learned a long time ago that the market is efficient and will price assets, including houses, rationally. We would recommend Laurie and the team without hesitation.

We were relocating out of NJ and need to sell our home within a certain time frame. Laurie and the Sue Adler team delivered the best service we could have hoped for - they sold the house with a week, significantly over asking, and closed within 2 months, while we were remote for most of our closing. Laurie knew the market very well, she had an amazing contact who staged our home beautifully, the open house was flawless and we received multiple offers. She had an amazing team who helped us at every step of the way and kept on top of all the buyer's / relo company's requests. The entire process was seamless and painless due to Lauire's & team's efficiency and professionalism. Highly recommend!

Laurie worked with us to sell our house and did an incredible job. From start to closing she was professional, responsive to our needs, our questions and our concerns. She was positive, honest, caring, and always so easy and pleasant to work with. Laurie shared the same vision that we had in marketing plans for listing our home and she helped us implement them, giving us recommendations and putting us in touch with resources and contractors who were also excellent. She also has a great understanding of the local market. Laurie works with an absolutely amazing team – Chris, Melissa and Rick. Laurie and Chris bring their experience, and a keen sense of how to keep the deal together and bring it to settlement successfully, to the process. Laurie and her team are a dream to work with and I highly recommend working with them to sell (or buy) your home!
