When Sue Adler says that hers is a "team" effort, that's the real truth, and one of the major strengths of selecting her as your agent. Her husband, Peter Jacoby, took what are by far the best photographs of our former home, a rather unique Mid-Century Modern ranch in Mendham, NJ. It's an unusual 10,000+ square foot space, and Peter captured the expansive Great Room and its architectural details, the oversize Master Bedroom, and all the other rooms and 7 acres of grounds with a skill and creativity that brought in more interested visitors that any previous realtor. They were also open to using our own photographs of the house in different seasons and times of day which, especially for the outside pool, offered a more comprehensive look at the property. Then, with a sale pending, Dawn Preziosi - handling closing logistics - was always responsive, returning calls within hours if not answering immediately, and offering advice to address all the many items that need addressing when a home has wells, a septic system and the Twp has lots of permitting and CO requirements. On all that, Dawn was excellent, and Kaitlin in Sue's main office kept things moving forward. Sue herself suggested staging our basement, which we'd been using as a home office, and making it feel more livable. That also worked, but - of course - her professional advice as to setting the right price at the right time of year was critical. Lastly we feel her team's special expertise at servicing the "MidTown Direct" communities of Short Hills, Summit, etc., brought in a larger and broader set of potential Buyers than any previous realtor. For all those reasons, we're happy to recommend the Adler Team, and hope your experiences are as happy and successful as ours.
I can't say enough good things about the Sue Adler team! From start to finish they were nothing but the ultimate professionals. Sue has put together an amazing team of real estate professionals who each have specific expertise to guide you through the process. Sue was very knowledgeable about the local market and provided me with honest and up-to-date information regarding the sale of my home. Chris Arcadia, Transaction Manager, is second to none in terms of his ability, proficiency, and judgment. He was at my side every step of the way, guiding me with his sound advice and counsel. When things got stressful, he was the voice of reason. And when my house sold and I needed a rental property, Jennifer Miller was there to show me the way to my new home. I highly recommend the Sue Adler team!
Above and beyond. It's that simple. Sue and her team are by far the most dedicated, professional, strategic, and friendly team I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Having bought and sold 4 homes now, I can say with confidence that I wouldn't engage with any other broker. Sue's strategic mindset and marketing acumen, with Melissa's always-on approach to client service, and Chris' outstanding mastery of contracts, best practices & trends in the marketplace round-out this stellar team. Our house was listed on a Thursday and by the following Tuesday, we had an accepted offer! I can't stress enough how incredible this team is. Thank you all!!
Sue and her team recently facilitated the sale of our home of 31 years. And I can't overemphasize enough the value of having a 'team' behind you. From photos to staging to inspection to closing, we felt we had true partners in Sue, Melissa, Chris and Peter. They dealt with us with true professionalism and each had a heartfelt understanding of the emotions and stress that go into selling a home. They get and deserve my highest recommendation.
I highly recommend Sue Adler and her team as your realtor. We had a great experience with all of them. Sue sold our home in Summit in 2 ½ weeks when other homes were sitting. I was incredibly impressed and grateful for her team approach. Sue has a listing support team who are experts in marketing, selling and home inspection negotiations. We would have been lost without everyone’s expertise. Sue helped us price our house right and was able to get numerous agents and brokers into our house immediately. Melissa orchestrated all of the marketing and simplified the process using an open house app which made the scheduling of showings easy and convenient. Chris Arcadia was a key member of the team, as he helped us get our house sale-ready and then helped us through the inspection negotiations. Amy Margulies helped us on the buy side, and we loved her! I would definitely use Sue’s team again!
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.
Sue Adler's team is a professional, efficient, focused group with dedicated staff, each of whom perform a specific function. They helped us sell our home in 3 weeks. As our broker, Sue 'interviewed' us, explained market factors at play and advised us on a listing price that would result in a quick sale. Chris was our project manager and was a single go-to person to execute on the preparation and sale. Sue introduced us to Leah, who staged our home so beautifully that we wondered if we should continue to live there. They also recommended reliable contractors who could address issues and repairs, both big and small. Our home went on the market during a major snowstorm. A lot of other similar homes went on the market the next week. Sue guided us on aggressively changing our list price and we got 3 offers the next week and closed in 4 weeks. Through the entire process, Sue's team were in constant communication using Slack and other technologies.
We highly recommend Sue and her team! When we met first Sue, she displayed the utmost professionalism. We selected her to sell our home because she was the first agent that we met that we felt confident would do the job right. She consistently demonstrated that she is committed to her clients. She constantly makes herself available and it is clear that she ENJOYS what she does. She keeps her clients in mind every step of the way and she made the sale of our home a seamless transaction. Her team successfully sold our home before it ever hit the market to a relocation buyer and organized all the details regarding closing, inspections, and other details effortlessly. She has a support team that is available and can help during each step of the process as well. It was a pleasure to work with Sue and we definitely recommend her to all potential clients, and are even still calling her for real estate advice in Nashville!
We had a great experience working with Sue Adler and her entire team on the sale of our home in Short Hills. They are honest, forthright, hardworking, knowledgeable and always available to talk - almost any time of day! They definitely help take the stress out of selling a home. Sue and her team are so wonderful that you can't help but become friends through the process. We highly recommend the Sue Adler team!
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.
Sue – On behalf of Ivy and myself I am writing to thank you for all of your sage advice, support, and honesty. You always told us the way things were, rather than the way that we wished them to be. And the proof is in the pudding –by listening to you and following your directives we were able to conclude a successful sale—albeit with the usual trials and tribulations that go along with dealing with purchasers of ones home. And thank you for your team – everyone from Peter, to Melissa, to Chris to Rick – and the sales people who hosted our open houses- everyone was supportive, knowledgeable and great to work with. Your recommendation of both Pam (and her assorted team) and Leah was perfect; without Pam we never would have been able to dispose of all of the “extras” that we had accumulated in order to get the house into tip top shape.
The Sue Adler Team was wonderful to work with. We had a few changes along the way and together we were able to be adaptable and flexible and arrange a sale to a buyer who loved the home as much as we had. The transaction specialists were helpful, amazing, honest, hard working and simply seamless which made the closing easy.
"Dear Sue and team, We can't thank you enough for all you have done in helping us sell our home in such a short period of time and with multiple offers. A real estate transaction can sometimes feel like a never ending roller coaster ride, but thanks to you and your great team members, ours was smooth sailing. From the beginning to the end--you, Peter, Melissa, and Chris, handled everything that came across in an optimistic, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional manner. You were there for us every step of the way, making this transaction an effortless one for us as the sellers. Thanks again for all your great support in making this experience as pleasant as possible. We will definitely be recommending you and your team to anyone who is looking to buy/sell!"
Sue and her team were terrific. Very professional and very in tune w today's marketing requirements to get my house sold. She would be my number one recommendation for anyone buying or selling a home in this market.
From the moment we decided to go with Sue Adler to sell our house, she and her team were there every step of the way providing support for every aspect of the process – from preparing the house for market to closing. Sue’s knowledge of the market, and her team’s expertise, made the selling of our home and the buying of our new home go way more smoothly than we ever could have imagined. We wholeheartedly recommend Sue Adler and her team. In fact, we already have.
You certainly have your choice of realtors when selling/buying a house. However, when navigating such a stressful process, a knowledgeable, professional team such as Sue's is essential. Sue's expertise and bubbly personality, along with the professionalism of the team ensured a smooth sale. Melissa, one of the team members was especially supportive, responsive, and also helped to make the process manageable. We would definitely recommend Sue and her team.
I would highly recommend the Sue Adler Team to anyone considering selling a home in Short Hills. Sue and her team know the market very well and Every member of the team was caring, prompt and thorough in addressing my concerns and made me feel very comfortable that I understood the process and their strategy for addressing the presentation and pricing of my home. guided me very professionally every step of the way. My home sold very quickly with multiple offers and I was very pleased with the result.
This spring, the Sue Adler Team helped us both sell a house and buy a house. Although it’s stressful to do both at the same time, Sue’s team made the process as smooth as possible. Sue knows the market well and advised us on the right price to list our house. Then her team members each have their own expertise to lend to the process from marketing materials to a successful open house. Our house sold in one weekend! But the benefit of the team didn’t end there. There are team members that helped through the entire inspection process until closing. They are all quick to respond, friendly and true advocates. The buying side of her team is equally impressive. Lisa Blue was our buying agent and really paid attention to what we were looking for in a house and a community. She is not only professional, but caring. We found the perfect house and location! It seemed impossible to both sell and buy in time for the school year (our house went on the market in May), but we had time to spare. This is thanks to the Sue Adler team!
Our sale of a higher-priced home in Chatham Borough was complicated by a number of factors that required particular skill around negotiation, timing, market knowledge and understanding of the motivations and needs of both ourselves as sellers and our bidders. Sue Adler was a steady, smart and reliable partner in this challenging process and we feel she and her team delivered the best possible outcome for us.
After having my house on the market for the better part of a year I knew in my heart that I needed a new agent. The second time around I was rigorous in making a selection and with several seemingly good candidates in hand, I went with my gut and chose to go with Sue's team. It was a terrific decision. Every single person on Sue's team, including Sue, is kind, honest, responsive, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable in his/her respective area of expertise. I cannot remember a time to this day that anyone on Sue's team doesn't respond to my texts within an hour, if not less. Sue knows the market and studies the market like nobody's business, she knows how to market your house, she is honest, she has integrity and she sold my house in a bidding war in one single weekend. Her transaction manager was PHENOMENAL when it came to negotiating the home inspection. She knows EVERYTHING and everyone to provide estimates and proper responses. Phil was incredible to me -- available to meet my buyers, the inspectors, the buying agent, anyone who was at my house at any time. And he was so kind to my kids. As a single working mom who commutes 5 days a week, often travels for work and juggles a hectic schedule all around the service Sue's team provided to me top to bottom ensured I was constantly looked after, my interests were represented, and that I sold my house quickly and smoothly -- with no hiccups. It isn't just about getting offers... it's about taking you through the whole process and ensuring you are well represented at every turn right up through the closing. So it comes as no surprise that I used Sue's team on the buying end as well, and I was equally cared for and looked after in every way. Peter was an absolute GEM. Patient. Responsive. He listened to me. He heard and understood what I was looking for. He took me to see so many houses weekend after weekend after weekend, often with my kids in tow and as sweet and kind to them as you can imagine. At the time my kids were 7 and 5 and not terribly patient in Mommy's long home searching process. Peter was lovely to them. Absolutely lovely. And though our months of searching I made many offers, got into many bidding wars, lost houses because of my nagging home sale contingency and we started over again and again and again. And though it all Peter stayed with me, guided me, consulted with me, worked through every deal patiently and thoroughly. Never getting frustrated or pushing me to concede unnecessarily. He genuinely had my best interests at heart. Determined as I was to find my new home. And ultimately, when a house I had lost out on in a bidding war came back on the market he caught it immediately. He sent me the notice and we made another offer.... this time accepted. He was attentive and present with me through the inspections and all the final negotiations, always with my best interests in mind to the very end. When I closed on each house -- my sale and my buy -- I heard cheers from both Sue and Peter, who were genuinely happy for me, GENUINELY(!), to start this new chapter in my life. Without question, I would highly recommend to everyone I know! And, um, I already have. :)
My husband and I could not have been happier with the Sue Adler team. From the minute Sue and Laurie walked into our home, we knew we were in good hands. Their advice on timing, pricing and the listing process were spot-on. She brought us 13 offers and we had great ones to choose from. Sue was incredibly responsive and engaged throughout the negotiation process and her team was very helpful at navigating the inspection and closing process. Her team was incredibly professional, knowledgeable and responsive. We would highly recommend her team and will certainly use her in the future when we return to the area!
Sue Adler and her team of professionals made the process of selling our home in Summit stress-free; which, speaks volumes if you are in today's hardening real estate market. She made a life-changing event sail through completion from the first meeting to closing. Suffice to say, selling a home is one of the most important financial and emotional decisions for many people, it certainly was for us. Having Sue and her team as our partners steer us through the "maze" helped us find a qualified buyer quickly and fast-track the entire process. Her team seemed to work round-the-clock, answering all of our many questions virtually immediately while providing advice on the myriad of options we had to be sure our home was priced competitively, staged beautifully, and sold in the hottest time of the market place. If you are contemplating who to engage as your realtor, I would tell you -- pause, call Sue Adler and you will be glad you did.
The Sue Adler Team can not be compared to other realtors! Sue is a powerhouse in every way. Her knowledge of the Summit market is one of her best assets. She timed our listing perfectly. We received multiple offers the first weekend! However, her team's work does not end here. Dawn, the team's transaction manager, was there with us through the rest of the selling process, from the home inspection to repairs to the final walk through. Peter, Sue's husband and our buyer specialist, also did an amazing job in helping us with our purchase. This could not have gone any more smoothly. If we ever move again, we certainly would use Sue Adler and her team again.
We selected Sue Adler to manage the sale of our custom Summit NJ house after thoroughly interviewing a number of candidates. She proved to be extremely prepared and knowledgeable of the high end Summit market, but also very organized, enthusiastic, and eager to please us and, most importantly, to succeed. Sue has put together an impressive team of professionals who guided us through each step of the process and they were all immediately available whenever we had questions. Sue and her team always respected our needs and our home and Sue gave us constant updates on the market and potential buyers who had expressed interest in our house. She proved to be creative during negotiations and was open to discuss alternative strategies. A Real estate transaction can be a very stressful experience for many reasons. Selecting the right agent to navigate through the process can make a big difference. I strongly recommend Sue Adler and her team to anybody who is considering a real estate transaction in her area.
I recently used Sue Adler team to market my newly renovated house. I would like to share two things with people who wonder why I decided to use her team and how my experiences with the team were. To be honest, it is hard to choose from among many real estate agents in Short Hills since most of them are super good. What I did was that I invited three groups of agents and presented to me how they would market my house. I finally picked The Sue Adler Team because I think their proposed price strategy is reasonable and well thought out; their marketing records in the past year are excellent; and their proposed marketing strategy was very promising. I really think I made the right decision. Now let me share my experiences in working with them. The house was sold after the first open house - impressive, right? That came from a few months of hard upfront work - Sue made many suggestions about how to build the house to the best quality and usability during the last stage of construction, Sue's team member, Melissa, followed all way through to communicate with my builder (she acted as if she were MY manager!); and after the signing of the sale agreement, Sue has a dedicated transaction manager who helped to manage transaction day and nights. I did not know Sue before this house. I chose her team based purely on business consideration and I highly recommend using Sue and her team.
The Sue Adler team is the best in the Real Estate “game”. I had an Amazing experience working with Sue to sell my home in Northside Summit. I met Sue back in 2013 when I first thought about putting my house on the Market. I was so impressed at our first consultation that I knew I just HAD to work with Sue. I decided to wait a bit before putting my house up for sale. Sue completely respected my hesitancy and did not put any pressure on me. When I knew I finally was ready to move, I immediately contacted Sue. She was over the next day with a complete file of comps. At our meeting, Sue explained the home selling process, how she and her team of experts would work with me each step of the way in selling my home. We set a sale price and I signed on to have her list my home. Sue is not only professional and efficient but she is nice and understands that the selling process can be a very stressful situation for the seller. Sue knows her market, knows how to structure a sale process and transaction that benefits the seller and the buyer. From our first consultation all the way to closing the deal she was totally focused on my needs. There were absolutely no communication gaps in coverage and execution of selling my home. Each member of her team has a specialty in bringing a home to the listing phase: the photography and copy writing were fantastic, the open houses were perfectly managed. When it came to the contract phase Sue guided me through every step from explaining the terms, negotiating on my behalf to accepting the right offer. Sue has a fantastic “transaction team” that jumps in and gets the owner through any and all issues from the inspection to the signing of the contract. Sue’s attitude of “let’s get it done” is 100% what she delivers. Sue Adler and her team are truly “'yours to count on'”. Thank you Sue, Melissa, Peter, Dawn and Neil for getting me through to the finish line without me once having to break a sweat.
We listed our house in the Poet Section of Short Hills with Sue Adler and she sold it the first weekend. Sue has a team of experts for photography, floor plan, brochure writing, online marketing, and inspection negotiations, who are all amazing. Dawn is the inspection negotiation expert and was our lifeline during this process. She is extremely knowledgeable and manages everything from negotiating, recommending contractors and scheduling town inspections. This is a critical stage during the house selling process and you want someone like her by your side. I would highly recommend Sue and her team- they are well respected, highly knowledgeable, and have the experience you need when you are selling a home.
The Sue Adler team helped us both to sell our existing home and to purchase a new one. Peter Jacoby, the team member who helped us find and purchase a home, possessed a great knowledge of the local (Short Hills and Summit, in our case) housing market and always made sure we viewed potential listings as soon as they came on the market. Once we found the house we wanted, he navigated us through a competitive, multiple-bid offer process and advised us skillfully regarding the offer and subsequent negotiations. He has a wonderfully affable manner and we really enjoyed working with him. Also, if we needed any special expertise or intervention to negotiate a sticky point, we knew we could always also call upon Sue to be a strong advocate and get the situation resolved. Sue Adler was the agent who handled the sale of our home. She gave us helpful advice on staging. Peter also does the listing photography for the team. Anyone, who has viewed the team's listing photos online, can attest to what a gifted photographer he is and how his photos truly show each home at its best. Sue has an amazing grasp of the local market and her sharp strategic thinking regarding pricing and the timing of the listing led to us receiving multiple offers during our first weekend on the market. Once we entered the inspection/closing phase of the sell, Dawn, a member of the team who specializes in the inspection/closing process, became an invaluable resource for us. She has great expertise regarding inspection related issues and was able to help us find trustworthy service providers to address various repairs. Right up until the closing, Dawn was always available to answer any questions we had as well as communicate any questions or concerns to our buyers' realtor. The team approach proved amazingly effective for us. Whatever part of the buying or selling process, a team member, who possessed expertise in that area, reached out to us and made sure that everything went smoothly (and intervened competently when it didn't). I would enthusiastically recommend the Sue Adler team to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in Essex/Union/Morris Counties. This team has an exceptional level of excellence in all facets of the buying/selling transactions and, just as importantly, they are all warm, responsive people.
Working with Sue Adler and her team was an incredible experience! We met with Sue and were very impressed with her expertise of the market. She outlined a strategy for selling our Chatham house by setting an attractive asking price to enhance the level of interest and attract offers. The strategy was right on, and the house was shown and sold within 2 weeks of our meeting, and while we were on a 2-week vacation in Europe. We had 37 showings in a 4-day period and received 11 offers, all above our asking price. Sue's team approach is extremely effective. We worked with a team of specialists, where each member of the team handles a different phase of the process and is expert at that phase. The team communicates with each other and with us so it is an extremely well run process. Sue is the listing agent, and plans the pricing strategy and shows the house. Melissa is the project manager through the sale and coordinates the sale/contract process. They recommended Leah, a staging specialist, who did a great job with some simple changes to allow potential buyers to see the space and the best utilization of the rooms. We met with a copywriter and photographer, who developed a brochure on our house. We stayed in touch with Sue and Melissa while in Europe, and were able to select the best offer (which we were very pleased with and complete the contract process by phone and online documents. Then Dawn took over to work with us and prepare for the home inspection and closing process. She was excellent, and we had all bases covered. Again, great communication and always accessible. Together, we were able to handle all issues and close on schedule, 5 weeks after the contract was signed. This was an exceptional experience, beginning with the pricing strategy which was right on point, and continuing through the offer/sale, contract, and closing phases. We would strongly recommend Sue and her team to any seller, and in fact have recommended her already to other potential sellers. Excellent job everyone! Thank you
Sue's team was exceptional from start to finish. At each step along the way, we had an expert to move the process along in a professional and timely manner. Sue's team communicates well with each other and offers the utmost in customer service. Sue was always available to us whenever we had a question or concern. We would highly recommend the Sue Adler team.
Sue, We thank you for your excellent service and results in selling our home! You exceeded our highest expectations by a very wide margin. The selling process required much more than we could have expected. However, your teamwork made the difference, and we are extremely pleased with the results. We feel that the Sanders will be quite happy with their purchase and will enjoy the Glenwood neighborhood. We want each of you to enjoy three of our favorite wines which we are delivering to your Short Hills office: Thank you again.
Sue and her team are hands-down the most professional and responsive team we could have working for us when we sold our house. Sue is a marketing genius--she attends to every detail and has mastered the digital forms of communication that many buyers rely on. Photos were beautiful, brochure was spectacular and the negotiations were handled most effectively. We felt like we hired the best!
Christine Harmon is interviewed by "Star Power" about her home buying and selling experiences with Sue Adler. Christine describes how connected Sue is in her communities and embraces all the latest technology in a way that other agents do not. "She is very connected...everyone knows Sue... She keeps a pulse on her clients like I have not experienced before, it's not just about the transaction with Sue!"
Our home sold so quickly we had no time to be anxious. The "team" is dynamic, professional and most important of all really nice people. No pretense, no surprises just great support and great results.Would we recommend Sue Adler to you? Positively YES!
The word team is often meaningless. Sue and her colleagues make team meaningful for their clients. Their expertise and coordination capabilities were thoughtful, careful, respectful and mindful. They think about what they do - how unique. Their attention to detail in helping me think about what I would do to prepare the house was outstanding. As I was travelling out of country, they made the extra effort to keep things on track by their sensitivity to time zones and my business schedule. This is their job but also their passion - getting it right for all parties.
I would highly recommend Scott Shuman of the Sue Adler team. He is extremely knowledgeable with regard to the current real estate market and he used his expertise to secure top dollar for me during the sale of my condo in Chatham. He went above and beyond the call of duty to attend to every aspect of the sale of my condo. He was responsive to my needs as the seller and responded to any and all of my numerous questions in a timely as well as professional manner which made selling my condo from 1,200 miles a way a breeze. Thank you Scott, for making the sale of my condo an absolutely seamless transaction.
We were delighted with the professionalism demonstrated by Sue Adler and her team headed by Ms. Dawn Preziosis. They were there for us at each stage from preparing to sell our home to dealing with the closing process several months after the sale. During that period of time, they managed the various problems of preparing the house for us after we had already moved to another state. We highly recommend this team. They helped to make a stressful time in our lives into a manageable experience.
Sue is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent. Her greatest strength was in her pricing strategy when selling our Maplewood home. It's critical in this market to price a home correctly so there's interest from potential buyers and the listing doesn't get stale. We followed Sue's guidance and were not disappointed. She brought us multiple offers in this buyer's market. It's a tricky market right now and if you want to sell your home quickly you need to rely on good advice from an accomplished agent. Sue is definitely someone I would trust to sell my home again.
Deciding to sell our home in Summit was something that my husband and I thought about briefly. We contacted Sue Adler to discuss it, to see who was out there as potential buyers, and what the Summit luxury home market was dictating for a home as large and well built as ours. Within a week, Sue found a buyer, connected him with us and our house was sold. It was really that easy, or at least it seemed that way. Sue went to work immediately for us. She called potential buyers, met them to discuss our home and really worked to find us solid buyer. Her team, which includes Dawn Preziosi, was essential when it came to the details of selling a home, going through an inspection, all the way down to the details of finding the workers to correct any small problems that were found in our inspection. Dawn worked side by side with electricians and construction workers to ensure that every detail was corrected and up to inspection standards. We have never experienced the sale of any of our homes before, and were really ignorant to the process. There is so much, so many small details and Sue and Dawn, and all of their team members, really made this a smooth process for us. They took care of every detail with such attention and focus. I recommend this group of individuals so highly, and truly consider them all friends after having gone through this process with them.
Coming into the New York area real estate market from Chicago, we were completely clueless. We didn't know where we wanted to live and were overwhelmed by the sheer number of possibilities. After looking around for months and becoming very frustrated, we finally found Sue Adler on the web. Sue took the time to talk to us and figure out what we wanted in a house and in a community. She helped us work through our priorities and target specific towns and neighborhoods that suited our needs. We love our house in Maplewood! It is a short walk to the village and train station. Our house and its location really fits our lifestyle. We really appreciate that Sue was able to help us find the right place for us. Sue is a fabulous negotiater & was truly our advocate! From presenting our offer to handling inspection issues, she was involved and we always felt she was on our side. She was clear and honest with us and was very effective in representing our needs to the seller's agent. For any real estate needs we have in the future, we would immediately call Sue. She's a great real estate agent.
Life's journey faces us with many challenges like selling or buying a home. With such a personal and sometimes traumatic event as this, you surely want to be certain of making the right choice in your partner/real estate agent. Well we did just that about a year ago when both my husband and I decided to sell our 4 year old home in the heart of Short Hills NJ. It was not the first time we were doing this so we knew how important our decision was in choosing the right realtor. Not only was Sue Adler the right real estate agent, she became our trusted friend giving of her very best from start to finish. Sue's professionalism was astounding as is her fabulous website. You can feel very comfortable and proud should you choose to make Sue Adler your realtor. You will have the privilege of experiencing a true expert.
We recommend Sue Adler and her team without reservation to anyone buying or selling a home in Short Hills. Sue was everything we were looking for in a real estate agent! Her knowledge of the town and specific neighborhoods in which we were looking, her ability to work well with other agents, her advice on valuations and negotiations, and her overall kindness and warm nature make her simply the best in her field. She is a database of listings and properties, she is very responsive and always reachable. She is extremely trustworthy, wonderful to work with and yet she can be tough when negotiations call for it. Were it not for the fact that we are thrilled with our new home and expect to stay for some time, we would look forward to working with Sue Adler again and happily recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch agent.
Sue helped me sell my Livingston home in a truly poor market. Her creativity and willingness to find options and alternatives and really market the house was amazing. You can't beat her internet marketing savvy which keeps buyers as well as sellers tuned in to where the market is. I highly recommend using Sue for selling your house.
Thanks to Sue and Peter I was able to buy my home even with 13 other offers. Her expertise as a listing and buyer agent helped me win the house! She is a very honest agent and her with her amazing reputation in the area made me feel very confident she was the realtor to work with! Thank you again for everything!!!
My wife and I worked with Sue Adler to find a home in the New Jersey suburbs after living in Manhattan for many years. Sue and her team made the process much easier than it could have been! She was a wealth of information when it came to helping us narrow down the towns that we wanted to focus on. Once we started focusing on certain towns, she went out of her way to understand exactly what we were looking for. That allowed her to really help us focus on homes that she thought that we would like, and in neighborhoods that would work with with two small children. That greatly streamlined the process, as she did a great job of filtering out homes that would just be a waste of our time. Sue also had great insights to share about the relative quality and pricing on the homes that we saw. We really valued her input and opinions. When it came time to put in an offer and then eventually close on a contract, the Sue Adler team really shined. Team is the key word, as there were a number of people involved in helping us out in a completely seamless manner, and they were all great. Sue's transaction coordinator, Dawn, was a life-saver throughout the closing process. Just so incredibly helpful and responsive. As I look back on the home buying process, it seems seems surprisingly easy in hindsight, and I have no doubt that Sue and her team are largely responsible for that.
Dear Sue, Thank you for making our dreams come true!! Our new house in Livingston is amazing and awesome just like you! We are so grateful to have met you and have you in our lives. Here I was 9 months pregnant, alone in Maryland with my 2 toddlers while Andrew was in NY all week, and you managed to keep me calm and actually make the experience enjoyable.You are a true professional with a huge heart- a rare combination. Mazel tov on Abby's Bat Mitzvah. Here's a little something (masssage maybe?) to help you recover from a chaotic last month. With big hugs and love,
Dear Sue, Thank you so much for all of your help during our move. Everything worked out as predicted with the sale of our house in Millburn and we couldn't be more pleased with the results. How did you get so much interest during a holiday season? We'll never know but you are a marketing genius. As for the purchase of our new home in South Orange, thanks for your hard work and guidance. Without you, the deal would have fallen through but everything came together in the end. It is refreshing to work with someone who takes pride in their work and adds significant value to the relationship. You performed above and beyond our expectations. Thank you again, Sue!
"It is easy to write an endorsement letter for Sue Adler. We were very satisfied clients with Sue as a our realtor on many levels. First and on the most significant level, the successful marketing and sale of our house in a timely manner,(after having been unsuccessful with our former realtor). It is a very confusing and difficult housing market especially for the seller today. Sue immediately showed leadership and guidance by walking through our house with us and making constructive comments about how to "depersonalize" our home, making it more appealing to a wider range of buyers. She not only made suggestions but assisted us by contacting an experienced crew of craftsmen and stagers that created a new and beautiful look for our house.
"I first contacted Sue because she was the realtor of a home that I was interested in. She was always very prompt in getting back to me and was ALWAYS available and responsive to my inquiries. We found Sue to be very professional and she has a fabulous team. She knows her business and her pride in it shows. She constantly is striving to improve her services to meet the client's needs, and she is well connected with a great list of resources. Sue, Thank you. We are on our way to remodeling the house. Your recommendation of Ben Horton as an architect was great. He is wonderful. Thank you also to Candace and Diana, who held our hands every step of the way. Working with you and your team has made our move back to the states a very pleasurable experience."
From the very first meeting, we were impressed with Sue Adler's professionalism. She was very familiar with the Short Hills real estate market, but perhaps even more important, she understood how critical marketing is to the quick and profitable sale of a house. She had a definite, specific plan for how she was going to get the maximum exposure for our house, in contrast to other agents we spoke to who seemed to assume that a house in Short Hills would simply sell itself. She understood the power of the internet in the modern real estate market, and we certainly benefitted from her aggressive use of email and the internet in getting the word out to buyers and other agents. Sue also suggested some updates and improvements, including using a staging service, which turned our plain vanilla house into a "wow" house. A question that my husband and I really struggled with was what the list price of our house should be, but Sue came through on that as well. After reviewing with us her take on the market at the time, she had all the other agents in her office come through and give us their independent opinions. Because we had lots of information, we really trusted her when she advised us about the list price. Her approach worked beautifully, and by the Monday after our first and only Open House, we had five offers on the table. Sue has worked tirelessly for us throughout the process, making sure we always knew what was going on and negotiating on our behalf with vigor. We recommend her services without hesitation.
"I hired Sue Adler to sell our house after we failed to sell it ourselves (for sale by owner). She and her team gave us tremendous support, helping us stage it, price it perfectly (we had a bidding war and the price went over asking), deal with the many issues during attorney review and the negotiation process, and finally, facilitating a smooth and on-time closing. We hired her again when we bought our next house. Again her team came through with flying colors. I knew that whatever happened, she had our best interests at heart. I recommend Sue with no reservations!"
"We found Sue Adler on the internet and were very happy with the excellent quality of service we received. Once Sue found us the house we wanted to purchase, she didn't leave the Seller's house until she closed the deal, then she stuck with us through the end. We will not hesitate to recommend her to friends & family." A year later..." We continue to sing your praises all over town! Just last week someone was asking me how I settled so fast and I explained to then the whole process with you from your website and email followup to the contract. They were impressed to say the least!"
To anyone thinking of buying or selling in Summit or Short Hills New Jersey: When my husband and I decided it was best for our family to relocate from Texas to New Jersey, we had no idea what to expect and more importantly we did not know who to trust. I had grown up in my current town and had never moved farther than 40 miles, so to me the thought was terrifying. Not only were we dealing with a huge change for our family, we had to make decisions long distance and gather knowledge the same way. Fortunately, we were introduced to Sue Adler of Keller Williams by our friends who she also helped relocate. Sue and her team helped alleviate our anxieties by guiding us every step of the way. Immediately we felt a connection with Sue, but we both feel like it was her tenacity, market knowledge, persistence and love for what she does that sets her apart from her competitors. We were most impressed with her honesty and vision during the home selection process and her ability to quickly assess our needs and likes. We whole heartedly recommend Sue Adler of Keller Williams to relocaters, buyers and sellers. To us she met the challenge and surpassed it. Most importantly, we found that someone who we could trust during such an emotional time.
"The quality of service we received from Sue was very good. I would tell a potential client who was thinking of selling their home that Sue is smart, internet savvy and very thorough. Sue, I continue to tell everyone that we were very pleased with your services."
