Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Hudsonville, MI.
Sue is awesome. She made the home buying process much easier and gave my husband and I sound advice as we were walking through each stage of the home buying process. Sue conducts herself with professionalism and is smart with her words and actions. Our home had multiple offers on it, and I am sure her counseling us is the reason we now live in a home we love! Absolutely recommend Sue Prins to my friends and family and anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We had a great experience with Sue, we had not moved in 40 years and she helped us navigate through the selling and buying process of our current and new home. It all happened within 10 days of looking at a lot, selecting a floor plan to fit the lot to listing our current home and then selling it within 4 days from the time of the listing. We were very pleased how quickly and professionally it went!

Very grateful for the opportunity. I know how hard it is (from experience) to pack up and move after so many years of living in a home and building family memories. Its emotional and exciting at the same time. I just know you will LOVE your brand new home. There will be plenty of opportunities to build new memories there with each other, your grown children and grandchildren. God bless you both!

Bought a home in 2013.
I feel so blessed to have had Sue as my realtor. The dedication, communication, and timely manner that everything was done, went above and beyond expectations. I will always use her for any realestate needs in the future. Sue understood my needs and worked hard to make it happen. She consistantly did what was right for me.

The process of working with Sue was awesome! She was so thorough with the "comp" process when pricing our home to sell, and gave us excellent advice at key steps during the listing and negotiation process. We were more than satisfied with the sale price of our home!! And we sold it in only 6 days! Great job, Sue!

We also bought a new home through Sue. We went out the day after our home sold, and made an offer on the 5th home we walked through. Sue helped us get a great deal on our dream home! Seriously never thought we could own a place like this on our budget. When we found our new home, my wife cried - and Sue did too!

Sue has strong personal convictions, displays great ethics in her business dealings, and - most importantly - was emotionally invested in helping us find the perfect home for our growing family. She wanted us to be very happy with this process and made the process so fun!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Westside Connection, Grand Rapids, MI.
We've bought and sold 4 other homes so this was purchase #5. We've never run into such difficult sellers or listing agent. Through all the raodblocks that came up, including a lender that was new to the industry, Sue stayed calm and worked through the challenges.

As a Christian, it was nice to see her demonstrate her faith in all aspects of this sale, and even her follow through after the sale to ensure we were happy. I would definitely recommend her for both the new buyer/seller and the experienced.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $75K in West Grand, Grand Rapids, MI.
I was impressed with the way Sue was always so flexible on times to spend with my husband and I. We work different hours all week long and Sue was able to always make time for us. She was always very honest about every home we walked into. If she didn't like something about a house, she told us right away and even told us what we could expect for any repairs that might be needed in the future. She has such a great personality and my husband and I clicked with her right away. We were first time home buyers and she baby stepped us through the process when we needed it. Will definitely call her if we need services in the future.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Grand Rapids, MI.
Sue Listed and sold our home for $323,500 in a down market. Our home in SW Grand Rapids sold in July 2011. Here was my experience.

I fancy myself as rather savvy in the real estate market, selling my previous three properties on my own. I have a friend who is a realtor that I've done another four transactions with. I've worked with an additional three realtors. This was by far my best experience.

This time I had to sell a more expensive home and figured that I'd need the extra market exposure. Sue had sold a home a couple years ago in the neighborhood (and it was comparatively a "dog" of a house -- I was impressed that it sold).

I picked out three top agents in GR and had them each over for a walk through. Since this was going to cost me 18 to 20 grand I shopped my realtors like I had money on the line! I picked high performers. Sue was head and shoulders above the other two in attention to detail, insightfulness, market research, and follow up. She was dead on for pricing, nearly exactly what I had estimated.

Here is why I was very happy with Sue:

1. She is very thorough with research and pricing. Price your home wrong and it will stagnate -- or cost you dearly.

2. She followed up weekly. She had good suggestions, and was open to our suggestions.

3. Her sinage, flyers, marketing, and open houses were all helpful.

4. She is a people person. Her relationships with the other realtors, and clients who came through the open houses, really carried the ball down field. We always got feedback, she always followed up. I'm a very active participant and she was there every step of the way.

5. In the end we had two offers on the home and sold over asking price. She was willing to negotiate down to the pennies and always had our best interest in mind.

6. One of the reasons I considered her to start with was her activity in her church. She was ethical, honest, and didn't beat around the bush. Those qualities are priceless. I won't do business any other way. You shouldn't either.

I know that the week I had interviewed she had clients that had just purchased a home in our price range. She also had sold something like 6 of her 9 listings in the previous month. I have friends who used her and also sold their home, not to mention the neighbor.

I usually would advocate for doing my own real estate work, but Sue's tenacious nature would make even me rethink that stance. I've recommended her to other friends and would not hesitate to send my family or friends right to her doorstep.

This was such a thoughtful and specific review. I really appreciate that you noticed the specific ways I had been working hard for you to get the job done, and at the best price we could receive for your home. I was very appreciative and impressed by your own research when I came to the listing appointment. You had researched not only the market but other agents in the GR area. I felt blessed that you chose me to do the job and thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your sweet family. You all seemed to understand that working together as a team was going to help you get your home sold. By this I mean that your home was always prepared for the showings by being clean and tidy. You were all so flexible with showing appointments/ open houses and welcoming to the prospective buyers by the way you prepared your home. I am glad it was a good experience for you but I want you to know it was a great experience for me working with sellers like you. Warm Regards! Sue

Sue was our listing agent for selling our first home. She provided extensive research and data regarding current market values allowing us to set a fair and competive price. She also assist in staging our home to increase buyer attraction.

Sue also assisted us in the purchase of our second home. Her negoition skills with the seller were excellent. She knew when to push further and when to back off. We ended up with the home of our dreams at the price we were hoping for.

Sue was recommended by several friends and let me tell you that they were right! Sue is a dedicated real estate professional. She not only sold our house in a timely and effective manner but we were so impressed we bought our next house through her. We recommend Sue to all our friends and family.

Working with a real estate agent is all about integrity and knowledge. Sue Prins has both. Without reservation I recommend Sue. She is a character person that you can count on. Sue is an excellent communicator and keeps you up to date on the local economy, what to expect, what you should do to prepare your home and so many more details to make your experience a positive one.

Go with Sue Prins!

Thank you for your kind words. I am so glad for having had the opportunity to work with such amazing people as you and your family are. I know you understand how important it is to me to make sure my clients are well cared for and well informed. Thanks for sharing about that. Although your home was lovely the way it was, I appreciated your taking my advice about some of the ways we could improve your homes appeal to a wider range of buyers. The things you guys did made a difference in how quickly it sold. Also thank you for trusting me again to represent you both in the purchase of your beautiful new home. You got a great deal and your new home definitely meets your needs and lifestyle. Very happy for you both. You have become the best of friends through our experiences together in real estate and that is what I love the most about my job!! All the best!

Sue, sold one of my houses and assisted me buying another one on a preatty bad market. I like that she said the truth about the market values, even when it hurts .She gave me her full atention and did not make me promises that she could not keep , she helped me with good market analises and was always there when i need it. She gave me feedback of every showing of the house which means a lot to me. If you know what people think when they see the house, you can try to make it better for the next showing. When we had an offer on the house and the inspection showed some problems, she had the contractor ready to go to fix the problem and not loose the offer. She was awesome!
