Susan was amazingly efficient, and helped us close in less than a month. Without her we wouldn't have been able to do it this fast.

Daniel Evans


Susan was amazing! She was kind, courteous, answered emails or gave us a call in a very timely manner. She's incredibly knowledgeable and we always have 100% confidence in her which is a huge stress reliever when going through purchasing a house. I could not have asked for more from her and will definitely use her again next time needed!



Susan answered all my calls, even while on vacation. She advised me of things that did not have to do with her responsibilities because I was nervous. The title company and seller also expressed praise for the amazing job she did!

Susan is a friendly, knowledgeable and professional agent. She walks you through the process and explains everything in detail. The entire experience was a pleasant one because of Susan.



Susan, was great with keeping me informed during the mortgage process, which is invaluable during the stressful time of buying a home.



Susan was a breath of fresh air. Preparing and getting a mortgage is no easy task. My husband and I had quite a bit of “challenges” that we had to overcome, and Susan made the process easy and understandable. She took her time to explain every step of the process to us and answered all of our questions. If you want a professional that you can trust, Susan is it!
