“No one has the experience that Susan has in Cape Royale. Susan provided excellent guidance on how to navigate in this market. We were successful in making an offer and buying our new home. After purchasing our new home we worked with Susan and her team once again to put a house and a lot on the market. We had multiple offers within hours. Through all of these transitions Susan has been accessible at any time. We discussed terms and strategies while traveling or dealing with family matters. We would highly recommend Susan and her team to anyone. No other can provide the level of support and expertise that Susan provides.”
