We interviewed several realtors/firms and Sue Adler herself stood apart because of her exceptional familiarity with all facets of the industry and its processes, her extraordinary personal accomplishments and, most importantly, a pre-occupation with selling real estate. Within an hour of leaving our home she unequivocally demonstrated her worthiness to get the listing by providing a very thorough and compelling market analysis in order to establish a list price and a clear and comprehensive action plan that integrated her highly qualified and task organized staff. In no uncertain terms, she maximized our sale price and minimized our anxiety level.
To catch the strong market, we decided to empty our home of 26 years and get it to market as soon as possible. Sue and her team have a process for success that allowed this to happen. We never could have made it to market so fast without their incredible support at every turn. Once we were on the market, they handled everything and brought us multiple offers above our ask. It doesn't end there, and we had still had support and guidance right through the day of the closing. Sue and her full team were knowledgeable, responsive and focused on our successful outcome. Thanks!
Whitney and I would like to thank you guys very much. You guys did a great job from start to finish. Everything from recommendations to strategy, to staging, and closing. The best way I can put it. You guys are Pro’s Pro’s. We can’t speak highly enough about our experience this time around selling our house. Maybe it was luck with the outcome, but I truly believe you make your own luck by working hard. And that is what you guys did. You guys were always there when we had questions, no matter how complex or simple the question. Thank you again for everything. We will highly recommend you guys to everyone we know in New Jersey. In return a case a wine seems fair. HAHA. Seriously though. You guys all made the experience so much better and we can’t sing your praises any higher. Thank you. Adam and Whitney Artiano Wickham Woods, Chatham NJ Seller
The Sue Adler Team is just that - a team! We thoroughly enjoyed working with Sue from start to finish on the sale of our home. We valued her expertise and counsel and were blown away by the commitment and go-the-extra-mile attitude of her Transaction Success Manager, Chris Arcadia. We would recommend the Sue Adler Team to anyone without hesitation!
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 just before an unexpected 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.

Buying and selling a home are one of the most life-altering, meticulous, and personal decisions one makes in their lifetime. Having the right team makes all the difference in the process. The Sue Adler Team is extremely knowledgeable, efficient, thorough and kind. No amount of questions is ever too much for them to handle. Most of the time, they answered them before we even ask. They have helped us so much in the process of getting the home we wanted and has gone above and beyond what was expected of a realtor. Having Sue's team's well-rounded knowledge and gentle guidance gave us confidence every step of the way. I couldn't imagine going through this with anyone else by our side.
The Sue Adler Team has been terrific to work with. I think "go getter" is the best word to describe her buyer specialist. She and her team really want to match their buyers with the best home possible and they'll go to great lengths to make that happen. They found us by sending out letters for one of their buyers, which turned out to be the perfect fit. They then helped us find the perfect house (in only two weeks) and they made the buying process smooth and basically painless. I was impressed that their buyer specialist previewed properties before we saw them, and that she listened carefully to our feedback so she could make sure that we were seeing the best choices for our needs. She kept us focused too which was really helpful! We've had a great real estate buying experience. We highly recommend The Sue Adler Team.
Thank you so much for selling my house. Sue, you really deliver your promise. I now understand what it truly means to be No. 1 in New Jersey! Sue, I enjoyed working with you. You are sharp and decisive. You have that acute ability to grab the crux of the issue and organize a team effort to tackle it. It was a pleasure working with you. Chris has been a big help in the process. He is extremely intelligent, resourceful, and meticulous. He thinks ahead and plans well. It is very difficult to imagine that we would be able to close it without Chris’s help. California is like a world away from New Jersey. Yet, Chris was always there when I needed him the most. On January 2 the pipe burst in my house. It was chaotic, and the situation looked grave. Chris was the first to be there on the scene, stopping the damages, sharing information with me, communicating with the police department, and organizing the repairing and restoration effort. All of these happened while New Jersey was having one snowstorm after another, a truly amazing and long-lasting winter. Chris, without your help I was thinking that this pipe burst was going to destroy my selling effort! Once the house was under contract there are a lot of details to take care of. It was mind-bugling to me, to say the least. However, Chris was there leading me to maneuver through this jungle every step of the way. He helped me find plumbers, HVAC specialist, masonry, and electricians. All of these processes happened while I was in California. Chris, you made every detail work! Yours is a wonderful team, an amazing team indeed! Everyone plays a crucial role, and every role was implemented well. Yours deserves to be No. 1 in New Jersey.
Sue and her team listed and sold our home in Summit, NJ as part of an overall plan to buy a home in Short Hills, NJ. We trusted Sue to handle our sale and she expertly managed this listing in the extremely quick timeframe that was required to satisfy our corresponding home purchase contingency. Melissa is such an asset to Sue's team and made the listing process painless. Keep in mind that we had to accomplish in less than 2 days what most people do over the course of 2 weeks. In less than 48 hours, Melissa managed a team of resources that photographed, wrote copy and got our home in tip-top shape for an open house and showings that weekend. We were overwhelmed with a large amount of traffic and received multiple offers after less than a week after our home went on the market. Sue guided us through a complicated set of offers and after accepting Chris was extremely skilled at managing the rest of the selling process. He was there for every step of the way from inspection to closing and was a great resource for any and all questions. Sue has put together a great team and Melissa and Chris are a pleasure to deal with throughout this huge life-changing process.
From the moment my wife and I met Sue Adler, we felt confident that we would be in good hands with Sue and her team. We signed and they did not disappoint. Every step of the way, they were there to guide us. Whenever we had questions, and we had many, they responded quickly and made the entire process run as smoothly as one could expect. Let me emphasize that this was a team effort and we found everyone on that team to be friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful regardless of the time of day or day of the week. Because it’s a team there are specialists. The specific attention to how to prepare the house before going on the market was invaluable. We knew where to spend our time and money so that there were no surprises at inspection time. I should also mention for those of you that are selling your house in the Glenwood Section of Short Hills, Sue Adler is an expert on this area. She has lived in the neighborhood for many years and has intimate knowledge of the housing stock. She has her finger on the pulse of the Glenwood market which becomes critical when you need to determine the selling price of your home and decide when to accept an offer and when it is best to turn one down. In short, we were very pleased with the end result.

Sue and her team were focused on every aspect of our record breaking sale in Maplewood, NJ. We were in the midst of an international move and after 14 years in our amazing house needed a team that could help with everything - We knew we wanted a very focused and professional marketing approach - the 'launch', photos, brochure, social media and approach to appointments and open houses was important to us. We also needed a lot of help on all the details - purging and clearing, administration, staging etc. Sue's team handled everything. Ultimately, after living in an amazing house which we renovated from top to bottom, and raised our large family and 2 dogs, in a neighborhood and community we loved, we were delighted that we had multiple offers and a record breaking sale. It was traumatic to make such a big move, but the support and guidance we got from the team helped us every step of the way.
Sue Adler and her team were impressive. We were excited to be selling our home and the process was seamless. We were confident in our choice in realtors and she came through with flying colors. The office team was exceptional as well. Her knowledge and stats in the market made us comfortable with all her decisions and guidance. The Sue Adler team is excellent and we would highly encourage you to use their talents.
Sue is a true professional. It was pleasure working with her and her outstanding team. It was the first phone call I received from team member #1 that encouraged me to proceed in meeting Sue. I listed my house on our first meeting. We understood each other and connected. Our house sold very quickly. Her assistant, Melissa is outstanding, she made so much happen, very efficient. And a special mention to Amy Margulies also who assisted in finding a new house for us. I have been recommending Sue to many people and will continue to. And if possible, next time around I will connect with Sue again.
Working with Sue Adler and her team was a fantastic experience all the way around. They are professional, detail oriented, and on top of everything. They actually handled things that I felt went way beyond their responsibilities. I highly recommend working with them.
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!
Sue and her team helped us sell our house in Chatham. She got an offer within the first weekend, and when that fell through, she got us 3 more offers the following weekend! Her team has selling a home down to a science, and takes care of every step of the way, from photos, to pre inspection, to closing. If you want to sell your home quickly and for a good price, look no further.
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 all of the sales people who hosted our open houses- were 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. Even the attorney whose name you gave me- Ron Zoller- was excellent. In the final analysis, it is no mystery that considering all of these things a friend of ours recently commented to me “it seems like all of the listings that sell in Short Hills belong to Sue Adler!” No surprise there! Best wishes
Laurie is a terrific Real Estate professional. Her association with The Sue Adler group only heightens her abilities. We were very pleased with her market analysis, the selling approach and her confident manner. Beyond that, the back office people are very strong. Melissa was excellent in her execution and coordination. Chris Arcadia, is a hidden gem. He brings a lot of resources to the post sale process and has a significant number of responsive contacts. We interviewed a number of agents, but picked Laurie from the Sue Adler team, because of their professional approach and breadth of resources. They exceeded our expectations!!!
Sue and her team sold our home in the Glenwood Section of Short Hills in record time for a record price that exceeded our expectations. They have the sale process down to a science with specialists handling various sections of the listing, negotiation, punchlist and closing processes. Sue gave advice on preparing the house for sale and how to improve the value, which all turned out to be exactly spot on. You can't pick a better team to list your home!
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'll start with WOW...from the moment that I met Sue, I was so impressed with her local area knowledge and business savvy. I respected and admired her approach to selling a home. Lets get the price right and the customers will come...even potentially a bidding war. And she was right...at the right price I received multiple offers within 4 days of the listing. All were either above listing or at listing. What made the experience with the Sue Adler Team was her team. Between Sue, Melissa ( Listing Success Manager) and Neil (Transaction Manager), I felt completely at ease and they were there when I needed. Because of my situation, I relied heavily on Sue's team, and they delivered. Thanks for all the hard work, I couldn't do it without ALL of you.
Professionally, the Sue Adler Team can't be topped. Sue personally evaluated my home, which was which I had added a mission-style addition that increased the floor space by nearly 50% and made the home unlike anything usually found in Glenwood. Sue genuinely appreciated the love and care put into the upgraded design, and priced the home accordingly. Then Sue's listing success manager(Melissa) put me in touch with contractors to finish projects and perfect the home, and high school/college kids to help de-clutter. Then, she actually, physically, helped me move stuff” into the garage in preparation for the photo shoot. The photographer took great photos of both inside and outside, capturing many of the more subtle upgrades, for the brochure. We hit the market Thursday, and by Monday we had three offers over asking price! Then, Sue's post-closing “Transactional” team took over. Dawn advised on and helped negotiate and resolve the home inspection issues, made sure all the Addition's permits were closed out (who knew?), set up all the inspections needed, picked up the permits, took care of access to the house for the town inspections so I could stay at work and even picked up and installed the kitchen fire extinguisher required by code (again, who knew?). The amount we received over the asking price was enough to pay the entire Realtors' fee! On a personal level, the entire Sue Adler team was sensitive to the fact that I was going through a divorce, tackling this project, both enormous in size and in emotional difficulty, by myself. They were sympathetic, supportive, motivating, helpful, all at the right time. I was never alone in this project.
Sue and her team are simply outstanding. Sue knows the Millburn/Short Hills market well, and knows how to structure a sale process and transaction for the benefit of the both the seller and the buyer. From initial consultation on the listing through the close of a deal, she is focused, professional and efficient. Most importantly, there are no gaps in execution or coverage at all - members of her team specialize in bringing your house to listing phase, with fantastic copy and stunning photos, then through a flawless open house process. Then the magic goes even further when Sue helps guide the contract process - from discussing terms to accepting the right offer. ( Did I mention she brought us several offers after the first weekend? ) Her amazing transaction execution team led by Dawn steps in and guides the owner through any and all issues during the inspection and contract process. Not only does Sue get your deal done quickly and efficiently, and at the right price, she also does it without you ever doubting for a minute the team's ability to bring it to an effective close. Every once in a long while you meet someone that just astounds you with how good they are at what they do. Sue is that person, and the fantastic team she has assembled just makes that effect exponentially greater.
I had expressed interest in a few Maplewood NJ houses online before being contacted by Lee Smith, Buyer Specialist of The Sue Adler Team - in one quick phone call he was able to gain a quick appreciation for my situation and was immediately able to start sending through relevant properties. As a first time buyer and not being from the US, Lee explained the entire process in detail and drove me around the Maplewood neighborhoods providing a quick and enjoyable history lesson. I found his honesty about the properties, prices and market conditions refreshing and took his advise on everything from making an offer that was realistic (not too low, but not too high either!), attorney, surveyors and mortgage firm. I was lucky enough to have an offer accepted on a house I saw on the first day and Lee and his team guided me through the whole process which otherwise would have been daunting and may not have resulted in me finding what I hope will be my home for years. I would highly recommend Lee and the Sue Adler Team and have already done so with some colleagues and friends already!
After an extensive and unsuccessful listing with another agency, we hired Sue to sell our Summit property. She showed the property during the first week of the listing and obtained an agreement of sale. Sue's team expertly managed not only the basic sale process but also managed surprising town-related permit issues, and last minute buyer concerns with alacrity, calmness, and humor. In the hands of a lessor team I am certain that our home sale would have fallen through. It's no wonder that Sue and her team are #1 in NJ for 11 years in a row. Thanks Sue and Dawn!
Sue and her team were a pleasure to work with. We used The Sue Adler to both sell our home in Maplewood and buy our dream home in Northside Summit. They provided a tremendous amount of support during both processes. Sue has fantastic local real estate knowledge and her amazing team moves through the process quickly. Sue Adler sold our house in 4 days- bringing in 6 solid offers, several offers were over asking price. Her team members are all a delight to work with, taking out much of the stress that is normally associated with buying a selling. We would use Sue again if we had to, but thankfully we have found our lifetime dream home! We highly recommend the Sue Adler Team
I hired Sue Adler as our realtor (we were the seller) based on her reputation around town. what I didn't know (or frankly understand well) was that not only would i get her but her "team". I had no real concept of what that approach was all about, but now that I've seen it in action I'd highly recommend it to anyone. its seems sort of the realtor concept on steroids! Sue basically has an expert on all aspects of selling houses working with her. Whatever questions I had (electrical, structural, legal etc) she has someone that handles it immediately. No waiting for her to consult an outside expert. It's the no waiting aspect that i really liked. When I had a question, I wanted a quick answer and got it!! She had promised at our first meeting that calls would be answered within 15 minutes. Frankly I didn't really believe that speil but it proved absolutely correct throughout the entire process. Sue herself knows her business and her market extremely well. I needed a good marketer but one that was not obnoxious. Sue brought me several offers after the first weekend and and exceeded all my expectations in every aspect. I would recommend her and her "team of experts" approach to anyone looking to sell (or buy) in her markets.
We had a great experience with Sue Adler and her team. When my husband and I first thought about selling our home in the Glenwood Section of Short Hills, we contacted Sue because of her reputation in the community. She came over to meet with us to discuss the home-selling process. We were ambivalent about selling as we enjoyed living in our house and neighborhood. Sue respected our hesitancy and did not pressure us to sell. When we decided to sell a year later, we reached out to her and Sue and her team expertly helped us every step of the way - from providing staging advice to determining pricing to developing promotional materials, etc. The team approach worked well: all the folks we worked with on the team were knowledgeable and professional, and if we wanted to talk with Sue, she was just an email or phone call or away. It could not have worked out better for us so we are grateful.
Sue, Thank you again. We were very impressed by your deep knowledge of the real estate market in Short Hills, your direction on how to position and price our house for sale to create a ton of interest, and the support of an always available team of specialists that worked together to make our house sale very successful. After the first weekend, you brought us multiple offers and we were able to choose the best price and terms. Expertise in any field is a beautiful sight to behold, and too infrequent. So thanks to the Adler team for knocking it out of the park for the Younger family! We are grateful for your management of the house sale and happy to share our experiences in any marketing you do. All the best,
We had the pleasure of working with Sue Adler and her team to buy ( Chatham) and sell ( Glenwood Section, Short Hills). Peter Jacoby was very honest, reliable, helpful and knowledgeable during the buying process. He went above and beyond to help us get estimates on repairs for our future home and he always gave great advice. Sue Adler put our home on the market and sold it the first week of listing. Her Transaction Team was amazing from contract til closing. Their expertise on repair negotiations is unmatched. We highly recommend Sue Adler Team.
I don't normally give reviews, as while most people I work with do a good job, it is no more than they should be doing. Sue and her team are the exception to my rule. We had bought another home out of state and were moving to it prior to listing our NJ one, and so it could have been a nightmare of a process as I am a control freak and wouldn't be able to see what was going on or get involved. From DAY ONE, the Adler team never let me down. From marketing to open house, to feedback follow-ups and more importantly keeping me updated with HONEST information, apart from the 750 miles between us I felt as though I was there. Sue got 3 offers and perfectly negotiated the deal. Dawn was the project manager and while there truly were minimal issues that the buyers wanted attended to, it was an absolute relief when Dawn told me that she would handle it all. We have bought and sold several times and never had the level of care or service that was being shown by Sue and Dawn. Dawn also handled the required town inspections, letting me know when they were taking place and once they were done. I think I can sum up Sue Adler and her wonderful team simply by saying that they are honest professionals. They know what they are doing and try and take the stress out of the process, they are honest with all information (it may not be exactly what you want to hear but it's the truth) and they do what they say they will do. Sue doesn't sell homes in NC so I doubt we will ever work with her again, but I can guarantee you that if we ever were to look to buy a house in NJ again we would certainly work with Sue and we have zero reservations about recommending her to our friends and anyone else who will listen to us! If you've read this testimonial and haven't read any others, please read them, you will find a constant theme running through them. Happy Sellers who found the same great things about the Adler team that we did. List with Sue, she will do her best for you the way she and her team did for us.
Your team approach to Real Estate is genius! We knew going in our realtor Laurie is a dedicated, conscientious person and we soon found she is in like company at the Sue Adler team. We appreciate so much the efforts of all of you but in particular those of Laurie and Vicky! These women were always pleasant, helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. The ability to have Vicki and Laurie both show us houses greatly maximized the number of visits we could see on our time schedule, which was so appreciated.
Simply put, Sue is as good as it gets. She specializes in sell side transactions and did EXACTLY what she said she would in selling our home. Not only did she have a command of the quantitative market dynamics but she also understands the "art" in deal making. We trusted her judgment from start to finish and were very pleased with the outcome. She is smart, trustworthy and hard working. I have nothing but the highest praise for Sue and would recommend her without question.
We highly, highly recommend Sue Adler and her amazing team for any house sale or purchase! From start to finish on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our dream house, Sue was attentive and completly dedicated to our needs and our family. Not only does Sue truly have a great handle on pricing v value, customer likes v dislikes, but she and her team are available 24/7 and are staunch advocate's of their client's position, which is exactly what we required on the purchase leg of our two transactions. We needed to sell our house very quickly in a relatively slow period in the 2013 housing cycle in order to purchase a house we had long sought. Sue's strategy was to price the house aggressively to sell, in the hope we received many bids. Strategy worked out perfectly and she sold the house for much more than the asking price in only 4 days! The second transaction, namely our house purchase was hugely complicated - the house is very old (consequently it has many issues) and the sellers realtor was not altogether transparent. Dawn Preziosi has an excellent eye and identified many problems with the house which would have gone un-noticed. Dawn was extremely thorough in making sure all work that needed to get done by the seller in a tight time frame, was performed satisfactorily. Without the tireless efforts of Dawn and Sue, we are truly confident that we would still be looking for a home to live in today. Their support has been like no other and we are so grateful to them for all that they did for us. This team is amazing and not only are they the best at what they do, they genuinely care for their clients and their families.
Where do I begin with this one:) Sue Adler and Peter Jacoby are two of the most amazing people we have met in our life. Their professionalism is unparalleled to anything we have seen so far, and we have been lucky enough to live in different countries. Their knowledge of the market is unbelievable. When we started our search and described to Sue what we were looking for, she told us how much we needed to spend, and she was right on the money. When we almost closed on a house, but there were some issues with it, Peter was the first one to tell us that we needed to cancel that deal, even before our attorney told us the same. Sue, Peter, Dawn and Kaitlin have forged an amazing team, and no wonder they are the best the USA realtor market has to offer. I would highly recommend them to all my friends, I actually already have, and if you are looking to get your dream home, look no further but give them a call. Even after you close on your house, they will still be there for you, and help you with any questions or issues you might have. They even threw a "welcome to the neighborhood" party for us, something that we will never forget. Call the Sue Adler Team if you’re looking for honest, reliable, and knowledgeable professionals. Thank you
Dear Sue, We would like to thank you and your team for all your hard work with the house closing. We are so happy that we found your contact a year ago when we were looking for our first house in Millburn NJ. We did find our dream home in Millburn, and we welcomed home our daughter from the hospital in this house, however from circumstances of job relocation we had to leave, but at the end of the day because of all of you we were able to sell the house with no glitches and stress, you all made it happen! We would like to especially give a special thanks to Dawn and Kaitlin, for taking care of the inspection, close and all the house details on behalf of us. We will definitely tell our family and friends to contact the Sue Adler Team if they want to buy or sell a house. Good Luck to All.
When your sellers trust your advice, magic can happen....Meet the Matsamotos of Chatham NJ as they discuss their home selling experience with the Sue Adler Team. If you are thinking of selling your home, and think you need to leave room to negotiate, watch this video till the end. A special thanks to Leah Gomberg of www.Sweetlifebydesign.com for her great job staging. See before and after pictures below.
BEFORE and AFTER
Sue Adler and her team are true real estate professionals. I was impressed with their use of the latest technology to keep my beautiful custom home in Chatham in the spotlight until it was sold. Sue is one of the top producers at Keller Williams in the entire country and now I know why.
I strongly recommend Sue Adler as a buying and listing agent in the Millburn/Short Hills area. In sum, she has extensive knowledge of the relevant housing market, and more importantly, she works diligently to assure the best results for her client(s) - even when its not in her own best interest. Drawing on her extensive experience, Sue provided us with excellent insight on how to best have our offer accepted while avoiding a bidding war on our new house in the Glenwood Section, which clearly had other interested purchasers. Following Sue's advice, our offer was accepted and the contract was signed. However, this only started the hard work by Sue and her staff. In the following weeks, Sue and her staff continued to assist us with all work needed to close, as well as guide us through some additional work we wanted to do on our new home after closing. Now its December, and we had to sell our current house in Millburn (South Mountain). Timing was critical as we wanted simultaneous closings. Through Sue's marketing advice and strategy, we were able to sell our home after only 3 days on the market. For both buying and selling, Sue’s advice, services, expertise and attention to detail went above and beyond what we expected from a real estate agent. She was always personally available to assist us, guide us, or simply answer questions. This is clearly more than just a profession for Sue. Having Sue on our side made the sale of one home and the simultaneous purchase of a new home a pleasure.
"Sue is, in one word, the best. We had our house in Chatham on the market for six months with another realtor without any offers. We re-signed with Sue and after a few suggestions and on-point marketing she was able to bring us 3 offers almost immediately. She worked incredibly hard for us and was always straightforward and honest, offering up solid advice. If I am ever in the market to buy/sell a house again, I would absolutely work with Sue and her team."
Sue and her team are great. I worked with Laurie Silver-Corsello, who was everything you'd want in a realtor: she knew the market, made herself available around my schedule, handled many details around the closing, recommended reliable contractors after the sale and otherwise made this a pleasant experience. Sue and her team have a great feel for the Millburn-Short Hills area and are very well regarded locally, which also makes working with them a bonus.
If you were going to sell your house, you'd have to come up with reasons why you wouldn't ask Sue to take on the challenge. She’s that good. Okay, so there are several caveats. First, Sue and I have been friends and colleagues long before she helped me sell my house in MIllburn. Second, some of this review is not just Sue herself, but her team, especially Dawn Preziosi, her transactions manager. Third, I'm likely not your typical consumer since I work in the industry and know too much. Having said that, if you were going to sell your house in one of Sue's markets, you'd have to come up with reasons why you wouldn't ask her to take on the challenge. You should start with, "Is there any reason why I shouldn't use Sue?" She's that good. Local knowledge -- there may be other agents who have a better pulse on what is going on with the market at any given time. I just don't know them. She and her team handle so many listings, handle so many buyers, and are doing so many deals that they have a really, really good grasp of what's going on, what buyers are thinking, what features are important, and which are not. She knows the towns, the neighborhoods, the schools, what it's like to live there... pretty impressive for a Philly native. One piece of advice: if you're going to list with Sue, just listen to her advice on pricing. You might think your house is one-in-a-million exception, but she has a far better grasp on the market than you do. You hire her for that knowledge and insight, so don't argue with her. Process expertise -- between her and Dawn, possibility the best duo you want on your side. Ask Sue sometime about "bulletproofing the transaction" -- the woman knows her stuff as it comes to what has to be done to get a deal done, what the steps are, and what creates demand. And Dawn may be the best "project manager" for a home sale you could find. She's totally on top of every single step. Responsiveness -- maybe it's because we're friends, but I doubt it. Keeping in mind that she is busy pretty much all the time, speaks nationally (internationally even) at huge major conferences, and so on, Sue is pretty much always available. And Dawn even more so. I recommend email and text messages, actually, rather than phone calls because they're usually running around doing something, but they get back to you in a hurry. Doing the sale from Texas, there were some parts of the transaction where communication could have gotten fouled up; they were on top of the issues and smoothed everything out. Negotiation skills -- since I wasn't on the phone listening to Sue negotiate, I have no way of judging this. But consider the result: I did not have to sell. We had great tenants in the place already. We would have been happy to just hold on to it as an investment property. But I got the price and terms I wanted, so I did. If results are an indication of negotiation skills, then you got nothing to worry about. The Extras -- Let's just say that Sue and Dawn went way, way, way above and beyond what you'd expect from a real estate agent. Two examples come to mind. First, we had moved away and the house was vacant, when we got hit with a NJ snowstorm. We didn't actually know who to call to arrange for the driveway and sidewalk to be shoveled so the house can be shown. Well, Sue got her husband (I believe) to actually take a shovel out to our house and have it shoveled. Not just once, but twice. Might have been three snowstorms, actually. Would your agent do that for you? Second, the cleaners we had hired did not do the greatest job in the kitchen; we got a call from Dawn that the oven was not cleaned as well as it should, and the appliances were not exactly sparkling. Well, Ms. Preziosi went down there herself, personally, with scrubbing brushes in hand, and spent an hour on a Saturday morning cleaning our frikkin' oven by hand so the house was ready to be shown. That's... well, you tell me if your agent would do THAT for you. So, like I said, if you're going to sell in Millburn, Short Hills, or any of her other markets... you should come up with a good reason why you wouldn't want to use Sue and her team.

"I became a fan of Sue Adler when I first met her about 4 years ago in one of the many open houses I like to go into (I like to look at houses even if I am not in the market for one kind of a crazy hobby of mine). After I met Sue I knew that if I were ever in the market to either sell or buy she would undoubtedly be the person I would choose to work with. For four years, she has kept me updated about homes and I have visited many (if not all) of her open houses in the Millburn/Short Hills area. What has always impressed me about Sue is her ability to understand the market and really grasp the pros and cons of each individual property in order to market and price it effectively. In addition, Sue has a tremendous ability to understand her sellers? and buyers? likes and dislikes and she knows exactly what they are looking for. For example, she immediately got a sense of my taste and preferences and I have never, ever been shown a property by Sue that I didn't like. Sue has never hesitated to take time out of her hectic schedule to show me a property (even when she probably knew that we were not going to move at that time). Four years later we finally decided to sell our home of 8 years in South Orange. Naturally, we called Sue, she came in and worked her magic did I mention her amazing marketing skills and her amazing photographer and team. Sue knew how to price my house in order to generate interest. As soon as I gave her the go, she did everything needed to be done and pictures of my house went up in her amazing website. We had a broker's open house on a Thursday, the general open house on Sunday and by Tuesday the house was SOLD, and guess what -- in this market we had 10 offers and a bidding war. WE COULDN'T BELIEVE IT! I think that without Sue's guidance and knowledge of the market, our house would probably still have a For Sale sign outside. Now, one more thing, equally important as Sue's incredible business skills is the fact that Sue is a pleasure to deal with. She was a tower of strength for us in an incredibly stressful situation. Our choice to move and sell the only home that we have known was not an easy one but having Sue meant that we not only had the best broker working for us but we had a supportive friend who was looking out for our best interests. So my advice to anyone out there looking to either sell or buy call Sue. I promise you will not regret it. , South Orange & Short Hills NJ
Where to begin? Sue Adler and her entire team of experts are truly amazing, knowledgeable and intuitive professionals who very easily become dear friends to you and your family. I first met Sue when we were exploring the area as we are out of state and she knew immediately where exactly to direct us and the tastes that fit our family. Buying our home with Sue and Dawn was very smooth and our time was treated with great respect. We only visited homes that reflected our tastes, needs and long term plans. Aside from identifying and facilitating the process, we quickly found that Dawn a unique resource for just about every vendor we needed to get our house ready to move-in. The fact that we did not have to "shop around" for attorneys, financial advisors, painters, etc., etc. made our life that much easier and allowed us to enjoy the process and quickly enjoy our new home. We cannot say enough about the professionalism, care, attentiveness, knowledge, expertise, network and sensible approach Sue and her team take with each of their clients. AMAZING - TOP NOTCH Service. Thank you!
We wish to express our tremendous gratitude to Sue Adler for her expertise, effort, and professionalism throughout the process of relocating our family. Sue helped us through both selling our old house and purchasing a wonderful new home in the midst of a tough real estate market. Sue was always patient, sensitive, and provided excellent advice as we had to make numerous difficult decisions during the buy and sell process. She worked tirelessly and was always there for us when we needed. Sue's assistance extended far beyond her responsibilities as a realtor as she referred us to an outstanding team of real estate attorneys, contractors, designers and a host of others who helped us forge ahead. We have already recommended Sue to several friends who have also been very pleased with her services and will continue to recommend her without reservation.
Not only did Sue help us find our dream house in Maplewood, but she helped us fall in love with our new town. She did everything a great realtor does (and even better!), but most importantly, she got to know us as real people and introduced us to properties and places that would be an ideal fit. We never had the sense Sue wanted to sell us a house; no, she wanted to help us find a fantastic home. There's no doubt we'd recommend Sue.
It has been a true pleasure working with Sue! We took our time looking for our dream house in Short Hills and Sue was incredibly patient with us. She was always available to see or discuss houses and always showed up with a smile. Sue understands that every home buyer is different and she spent considerable time with us to fully understand our needs and desires in home selection. She is a great listener and always puts her clients interests first and gives appropriate recommendations. She treats all of her clients with respect and gives them the attention they need (especially for those not familiar with particular neighborhoods). Further, her knowledge of the real estate market is exceptional. She supports her recommendations with facts, figures and information. She is a lovely person, but most importantly, she knows how to move the process along from start to finish. We fully endorse Sue as the top agent in the area and would recommend her to all inquirers.
Dear Mr Bunn, We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation, gratitude & admiration for Sue Adler. We were cast into a situation where the time was of the essence in our relocation. Having worked previously to no avail with two competitive firms, we were indeed fortunate to come upon the services of Sue. When we engaged her services, she took on our issue with a determination we believe in our experience is uparalleled in the industry. Ms. Adler became more than a sales consultant. She became totally vested in our needs. She selectively chose several properties descriptive of our particular needs. Working beyond exhaustion she was able to find for us, a home unparalleled in the several residences in which we have lived over the past several years. We in particular are indeed fortunate to share in the outstanding professionalism of this truly competent sales associate. Be assured that we have spoken relentlessly about Sue's ethics and competency. Again, my thanks for someone who made a difficult process rewarding and satisfying. Sincerely, Nick Navarino, Former Millburn Middle School Principal and Patricia Navarino, Director of Art Department Millburn High School
My wife and I recently decided to move out of Manhattan to purchase a house. Neither of us are from the NJ area and enlisted Sue Adler's help in showing us around the Summit/Millburn/Maplewood/Short Hills area, explaining the differences and what would best fit our lifestyles. This was an invaluable experience, and Sue did an excellent job in pointing out the uniqueness of each area. After multiple visits out to the area, Sue was able to find us the ideal house (a newly built home in Summit) and walked us through the process. Her honest, open, communication helped ease any problems/concerns we had and made the purchase as stress-free as possible. In addition, I was very impressed with how Sue was able to quickly, close the deal - in a detailed oriented fashion. Lastly, Sue's contacts in the business, and staff, were also first rate and a pleasure to deal with. Will definitely go back to Sue when we look for our next place.
