Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Guilford, CT.
This review is for people who have not yet worked with Susan Jacobson. Those of you who have already know that she is professional, so she represents herself and your property with class. But she's also sensitive to your needs. My husband left me - and gave me the house. I thought I had it made - until I tried to sell it. He had done such a bad job on upgrades and maintenance that I could not sell it until I had a ton of work done. Susan walked me through all of that. She helped me figure out who to hire and what really needed to be fixed or replaced. What I like about her and Raveis is that they help you from start to finish. I did not have that experience with another company that I had hired for a year to sell my home. It was the complete opposite. So for those of us who don't know what to do, or who to contact, or where there is good storage, etc -- this is the company and Susan is definitely the person for you.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in North Branford, CT.
Susan is top notch in her field. We first hired her to purchase our first home in 1998 and have kept in touch with her over the years. When it came time to sell our home this past spring we didn't hesitate to hire her again. Her knowledge and expertise were immediately evident. Her analysis of our situation from what we needed to do to prepare our home for sale to the market analysis for pricing were spot on. Her skilled efforts secured a full price offer on our home within one day of putting it on the market. While some may feel this means we did not price our home properly, the reality is quite the opposite as the price we secured was $20k higher than what analysis showed just a year before. Careful market analysis enabled us to price our home "just right" and ensure we were able to achieve the results we needed to move forward with our out-of-state move. Susan is simply the best out there and would recommend her highly to anyone in the area looking to sell or buy a home. You will not find a better partner in this process.

Bought a home in 2012.
My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend Susan to anyone who is interested in buying a home. Susan is a warm, friendly and trust-worthy professional who helped us to orient ourselves to Connecticut and decide on the community we wanted to live in. When we moved to CT from out of state earlier in the summer of 2012, we were referred to Susan by someone who had worked with her previously. On our first visit to Susan's office, we were really impressed by how well organized she was and had prepped us with all the materials we needed towards our orientation. She drove us through two of the towns we were interested in for a grand tour even before we began the process of looking at houses. Susan is very professional, ethical and patient and she spent countless hours showing us homes. She provided us fantastic referrals - whether it was to find a home inspector (who took the time to explain every part of the inspection process in detail), or the lawyer (who patiently spent way more hours that he probably got paid through the process) during the house buying process. Susan was our agent and worked for us. She made sure that we were all set up with the utilities and provided us the right contacts to be set up to move in a day after the closing. Susan is easily accessible and promptly responds to calls and emails, whether it is early morning or late evening. We are thrilled with our home and the community we chose... we couldn't have moved to CT and moved to our home within 4 months without Susan's patience, guidance and expertise that made it so easy for us.

Sold a home in 2010.
Susan Jacobson listed my home in Guilford, CT under a very difficult set of circumstances: because I was grieving over the recent passing of my wife, I only gave her a few months to sell the property during some of the worst days of the economic downturn. Furthermore, I insisted that she find a buyer who would work with us without trying to convince my banks to agree to a short sale or other workaround device to help move the transaction along. She rose to the occasion and surpassed my (admittedly) very high expectations of performance. I have owned several properties and she is by far the most effective, honest, and determined sales agent I have ever had the pleasure to retain. She knew the market well, carefully considered my performance expectations, and came up with a listing price that perfectly met my needs. And she sold my home to an enthusiastic buyer well within the few months that I requested that she finish the project. March 15, 2012

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $575K in Guilford, CT.
I loved working with Susan to help me find the perfect rent for me and my pets. She always stayed in touch with me, is very professional and also has become a friend. I have known Susan for almost 30 years and her level of professionalism and compassion has remained the same.

Sold a home in 2009.
Susan is an amazing Realtor! Her professionalism, integrity and attention to clients needs make her a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the market and sales skills are second to none...and she gets results! We listed our home in Guilford with Susan in the Spring of 2009 (with the real estate market already in decline)...and she sold our house in 11 days for 98% of our asking price!! In addition, she found us the home near the water that we had always wanted, and she coordinated all details of both transactions with ease. Susan is the best real estate professional we have ever worked with, and we highly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell property on the CT shoreline!

Sold a Other home in 2011 for approximately $825K in Guilford, CT.
The Jacobson team is amazing! We knew Susan was someone special when we bought our Guilford house in 2005. Over the years, she was always available to give us advice on landscaping, shed placement, inside remodeling... nothing was too small to ask. So, it was an easy choice to call Susan when my company relocated me to Georgia in 2011. The expertise of the Jacobson Team was wonderfull - we implemented every suggestion for small repairs and staging. The house was ready and so was Susan - we had showings immediately and received our first offer in 4 days, had 2 bidders, and accepted an offer in 1 week! Now, I know this is unusual in the economy today, but I believe our success was because Susan knows the market, knows how to sell a house, has a great team, and her super professional way of working just makes things go smoothly. No doubt that if we're ever moving back to CT, the Jacobson Team will be one of our first phone calls!

Sold a Other home in 2009 in Branford, CT.
Susan has been a great agent for us over the decades, she sold our first home to us (seller's agent). We loved her so much that when we were ready to sell we called her! She also helped us find the place we live now. Susan is the ONLY Realtor I would ever recommend!

Sold a home in 1999.
Susan Jacobson is top notch! She is a true professional in her field. I have known Susan for over 12 years and she has handled 3 of my purchase and 2 sale transactions. She is very passionate about her career and it shows in every detail of how she handles things. She is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and caring. Susan did an excellent job negotiating on my behalf and she is well aware of the market. She also worked diligently preparing my houses ahead of time by staging them properly and recommending what was needed or not needed to obtain maximum value and appeal. She works endlessly for her clients, and I’m happy to say she’s one of the few professionals that receive a holiday card from me, because she has become much more than a real estate agent to me! If you have a need in any area of real estate, call Susan!

Bought a home in 2011.
Susan was a wonderful buyer's agent. We were moving from out of state and she met with us whenever we were able to come to town and was very attentive and responsive to all of our questions. She took us on a whirlwind tour of many homes in one day and helped us found our dream house that we like to call our "forever house". We really enjoyed working with her. She was helpful, patient, informative, and helped negotiate us through some tricky issues that came up toward the end of the process. I would highly recommend her as an agent for any of your real estate needs!
