Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Park Ridge, IL.
Sue Hall was wonderful to work with. A constant professional, Sue was extremely knowledgable and always on top of her game. Sue was a terrific partner and leader throughout the homebuying process. She was patient, honest, and worked very hard on our behalf. We could count on her to call us the minute a home that met our criteria hit the market, and we could count on her to ask the right questions at each property we considered. We recommend Sue to anyone looking to buy a home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Sleepy Hollow, IL.
I have used Ms. Hall for three purchases and 2 sales over the last 12 years: for my first arms length home purchase and subsequent sale; for building of a new home in Park Ridge and sale; and now this year purchasing a short sale architect designer home in the Northwest suburbs.
I believe what separates her from other agents is her desire and drive to go the extra distance to make the experience positive. She has a wide range of qualified support professionals in all trades and banking. Being in business of real estate for almost 30 years has given her an inside knowledge of areas, homes and penetrating questions so that the buyer or seller can complete the transaction in an optimal time frame.
She knows not only park ridge, but many areas of downtown and north west chicago and the northwest suburbs. If she does not know an area, she takes the time to study and create relationships to ensure that the buying or selling experience works optimally.
I will continue to use her in further purchases, and for advice on investment properties anywhere in this area.
My first experience was as a neophyte to the house buying arena. We found a suitable home in Park Ridge that satisfied my needs within 60 days. Closing was a breeze and we sold the home for more than we paid! My second experience was unique as we found a lot, and builder who was open to our negotiations for custom building our new house. Her expertise helped in negotiations through a particularly unique sequence of events with the builder. We sold the house again for a profit.
My new house was purchase in less than a week, as a short sale! We negotiated a purchase for about $150,000 under the house value and closed with cash in 4 days!
As you can see, i have used her in 3 different unique circumstances, all to great satisfaction. I would highly recommend her for any type of real estate purchase.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Park Ridge, IL.
Sue is an expert in the Park Ridge marketplace and was able to sell our house in a matter of weeks. She provided us a valuable analysis of the current market and together we were able to determine the best way to market our home for sale.
She is a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to use her again if the occasion arises.
In a Word - Superb! Sue is an absolute pleasure to work with - knowledgeable, professional and effective! Sue sold our Park Ridge home in less time than any of our previous 5-6 moves. If you're looking for someone who knows the local market and is easy to work with - Sue would be a great choice!
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Skokie, IL.
Sue guided our family through the difficult process of efficiently preparing the home of my deceased mother for listing and sale. Her insight was extremely helpful in determining what areas of a sound, but tired home should be updated, and the advice we received allowed us to wisely spend limited resources in getting the home ready to market.
She carefully gave our family an extensive list of comparable home sales figures, and thoughtfully advised us of our options and risks of listing at various price points.
Mom's home sold and closed quickly, and at a price very close to where we listed. We were very impressed with her honesty and dedication to this transaction.
Sue is a true professional and great to work with ! She is a local market expert and made selling our condo quick and easy. I have been involved in over 10 home sales/purchases, and can easily say Sue is the best real estate agent I have ever encountered. I highly recommend her to buyers and sellers.
She convinced us that the property was worth 50% more than market. After we signed the contract with her, she convinced us it should be listed 20% less than that - about 30% over market. Months later, it still hasn't sold. It will probably sell for 40% less than her original valuation. We could have saved money if we listed it 10% over market and accepted market, instead of spending money on fees, utilities, and taxes for months.
