"Sue Checchio guided me through the entire home selling process from beginning to end. She generously provided excellent advice on how to prepare my home for sale a year before I put my house on the market. She has extensive knowledge and experience in the area and was able to refer me to the right professional for every issue. Sue answered every question I had and was always available when needed and found the right buyers for my home. I would highly recommend Sue Checchio to any seller OR buyer. She's the consummate professional with a terrific personality."

""We were in the process of getting our house ready for sale. Sue came highly recommended to us as someone we should work with when we were actually ready to sell. So I called her, met her, gave her a tour of my house and told her we had a number of things we still wanted to take care of before listing in the spring. She advised us not to wait! While it was typically a slow time for house sales, she noted there was not much available on the market in our price range and what was on the market had already been seen. We decided to give her the listing, in house only for two weeks, and then when we were ready, would list on MLS. Never made it that far. Sold on first weekend, first showing. Throughout the process, she was a calm, steady presence. Helped us navigate the sale seamlessly in what can be a stressful situation for both buyer and seller. I would highly recommend her to either!

"Sue is the real estate agent everyone hopes for. She patiently worked with me over the course of a year to make strategic improvements on the house and arranged for a stager and a professional photographer, who were both at the top of their game, to work with me as well. When it came time to list the house, Sue actually recommended a listing price that was higher than I anticipated. We proceeded to list at her recommended price and received an offer at the listing price from the very first showing. She was a good negotiator and someone you definitely want on your team because she looks out for you. I would recommend her to anyone selling or purchasing a home. I am so thrilled with the results. I also want to note that she saved us thousands in unnecessary home improvements I would have otherwise had done if she didn’t steer me away from them. Thank you, Sue!"

""Thank you so much for finding our dream home. We are so happy here and very proud of it. Everyone comments on how nice the house is and the neighbors have asked how we bought it so quickly and quietly. You made everything so easy for us. You were very patient and kind throughout the whole process. We really appreciate how you always took time to explain our options so we could make educated decisions. All of your recommendations were wonderful, too...""

"We happened to meet Sue very early in our home search and consider ourselves lucky for doing so. During every step of the process, Sue was there guiding us and going out of her way to accommodate us as we searched for a new home with a two-month old baby. Sue is that rare combination of realtor who not only possesses extensive knowledge about every aspect of the home buying process, but who also understands exactly what you are looking for in a home. In all honesty, viewing homes with Sue felt more like we were touring through towns with an old friend. During the home purchasing process, we encountered some difficulties with the seller and Sue defended our best interests and ultimately resolved the problem by maintaining an open, forthright dialogue with the sellers' realtor. In the end, we moved into the house of our dreams in a fantastic town; we are deeply grateful for all that Sue did to make that happen."
