Real Estate Professional, Minnesota, National Association of Realtors (16 years experience)
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Golden Valley, MN.
Susan is an independent Realtor which we loved. She was never pushy with us and gave us sound advice. She knows the Twin Cities area really thoroughly and has a lot of practical experience and has mastered the gentle art of negotiation. She always kept our best interests at the forefront and made us feel comfortable and secure during this daunting process. I really appreciated how she helped us negotiate offers and was available to us for showings on our schedules. Susan is incredibly organized and responsive - we never had to wait or worry. We could not have had a better professional to work with and would never work with anyone other than Susan. We absolutely loved working with her!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in St Anthony East, Minneapolis, MN.
Our experience working with Susan was excellent. She is a professional and easy to work with throughout the process of real estate transactions. She also made suggestions that have assisted us in related issues involved with moving into a new home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in St Anthony West, Minneapolis, MN.
Susan was attentive to our needs and listened to our needs as we considered downsizing and moving back into our old neighborhood. We visited several potential listings and worked thru how those places did not meet our needs and refined our preferences. Susan also had excellent connections with both the seller and the finance company which make the process so much easier once we decided on the home. The home we wanted ended up in a pricing war and Susan was right there to position us so that were able to get the house. She knows the area well and is a great resource.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Hopkins, MN.
Susan worked with my wife and myself over the summers of 2011, 2012, & 2013. Given our jobs we were only in the Twin Cities area during summers. Susan gained access to every listing we asked to view and she made it her business to find out what we were really looking for She kept us up to date on all new listings in the areas in which we had expressed interest, and she always showed up with a smile and shared her local knowledge about the properties and general areas.
I found Susan to be an excellent realtor and would gladly recommend her to anybody in the Twin Cities area looking for a house. She treated us well, she is honest, and I felt that she always wanted to find the right house for us.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Como, Saint Paul, MN.
As a single woman and first time home buyer, I was nervous about finding the right house for me within my budget, but Susan made the entire process easy and enjoyable. She was readily available and extremely knowledgeable about the state of the houses that we looked at as well as the home buying process. I enjoyed looking at houses with Susan and appreciate how smoothly the entire process went because of her expertise. I highly recommend Susan.
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $300K in St Anthony West, Minneapolis, MN.
Susan helped us buy our first home, purchase our second home and did a fabulous job. Susan's knowledge and experience around homes, the housing market and the various stages of the home buying process was impressive and ended up helping us immensely.
When we learned of the right home possibly coming onto the market, Susan responded quickly and we were able to view the home prior to anyone else. There was significant competition for our new home. However, thanks to Susan’s excellent leg work and relationships within the realty community, we ended up with a winning offer. Susan was outstanding through every stage of the process and I would recommend her wholeheartedly and without hesitation.
Sold a Other home in 2013 in St Anthony West, Minneapolis, MN.
I highly recommend Susan Jacobsen because of her many years of experience working in the twin cities real estate market. She is knowledgeable, professional, and very thorough in all aspects from the beginning of the home listing through finalizing the sale.
She met with us and explained the process (we were selling our elderly parents' house) and gave suggestions for preparing the house, but listened and understood that we wouldn't be putting money into renovations.
She responded to all our questions quickly and with detailed information. She helped us with contact info for getting paperwork and other items done. She gathered items for us. It was simply well done and straightforward.
When the house started to show she suggested actions that resulted in quick sale for a great price. Yes we had certain things working for us like the spring market in MN and interest rates about to go up, but her suggestions made things happen.
She was then great at explaining the remaining process and helping us get information ready for the closing.
I have already and will continue to recommend Susan to others. And if we sell our house she'll be the first person I call.

Susan made our entire process as easy and enjoyable as possible. She was extremely flexible and helpful, and made our first home buying experience as painless as it could be. We really enjoyed working with her, and appreciated her knowledge and advice about neighborhoods, things to do, area history, and professional ability to keep things moving smoothly. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone in the Minneapolis area, and will certainly make her our first choice for any future real estate adventures!
