Laurie Silver-Corsello did a great job helping me selling my house. She listened to what was important to me and accommodated my eccentricities. Her strategy played out exactly the way she said it would. I believe the Sue Adler team is very knowledgeable and professional and I’m completely satisfied with their representation.
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 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!
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.
"I first heard of Sue Adler when I found her website. I wasn't actually in the market to buy or sell at the time, but her website was the only place that I could find real data on our local housing market. She also seemed to have the most interesting listings for houses in the area, which was another reason why I found myself visiting her website occasionally. In October 2006, we decided to relocate to the Philadelphia area. The first and only agent that I called to list my house was Sue Adler. We called the number on her website and expected to hear back in a day or so. I think it took her 45 seconds or so to call us back. She came over the next day, advised us on what to do to get the house ready by Thanksgiving (recommending stagers and contractors that also showed up, returned our calls and bumped other jobs to help us get ready). She also guided us (and frankly, my new employer's relocation counselor) through the process of putting the house on the market and gave us frank advice on selling our house in a down market. Prior to listing our house, our relocation counselor sought an independent assessment of the value of our house from an additional realtor. When that estimate suggested that we should list our house almost three hundred thousand dollars less than Sue suggested, Sue fought to price the house at what she thought was right, and went to great pains to demonstrate to the relocation company why our house was more valuable then the independent analysis showed. She also gave us novel marketing advice with respect to our home's property taxes, which would definitely have been an issue otherwise. In the end, in a down market, at perhaps worst time to sell a house (between Thanksgiving and Christmas), Sue listed our house at what her analysis showed was the right price to sell. In a time when it was relatively unheard of, we entertained multiple offers and accepted one that was over $20,000 more than our listing price. I would unhesitatingly recommend Sue to anyone looking to sell their house in the area. She knows the market. She has the data. And she'll answer her phone when you call.”
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.
Susie has an extremely calming warm demeanor, which is invaluable when navigating a process as stressful as buying and or selling a home and moving. Invariably there are things that happen that make the process even more stressful than you expect, and having someone like Susie to work with makes all the difference.
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.
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.
