Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Madison South, Portland, OR.
We bought our first house with Susan, and the process couldn't have been more pleasant. We were in a bit of a panic because we're expecting a baby, and have never bought a house before. She was a great educator on "how things work" - every question we asked (and we asked A LOT) her she was able to answer, and if she didn't have the answer immediately, she doggedly did the research for us. She learned very quickly what our desires/needs were and found a great selection of houses to show us, and her attention to detail enabled her to manage our expectations with some properties that weren't good fits. She is an AMAZING negotiator and doesn't back down. She helped us get the perfect house, one that actually exceeded our expectations, and thanks to her, we'll be starting our family in the home of our dreams. I can't recommend her services enough!

Susan Zazzetti made both my buying and selling experiences great. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Susan is always quick to respond and and never fails to follow up on every detail.
I would not hesitate to recommend Susan to anyone. She helped us navigate through a particularly lengthy financing situation with my property's buyer and we came through triumphantly! I honestly am grateful we had her to help us through everything - she relieved quite a bit of stress I would have felt otherwise had we been working with someone not up to her standards.

Relentless in finding a buyer for my very difficult property to sell. Courteous, kind, and responded quickly and well to all of my questions. Encouraged me when I was becoming pessimistic, and ended up earning a very good deal for me. I didn't get everything that I wanted, but that was probably more my fault than hers.
I would definitely use Susan again, and consider her a friend.

When preparing to sell my condo in a tough market, it didn't take a second thought to choose Susan as my realtor! She helped me buy my place three years earlier and had done an incredible job, so I had no doubt that she would be the right choice.
Susan's knowledge of both the general market and the market specific to my area were invaluable in getting my unit sold quickly and for a good price. Throughout the experience, she was incredibly responsive and executed work in a timely manner. Even when I was distracted with other aspects of life, she was on top of every detail. I could rest easy knowing that Susan was covering all bases. She also has a very proactive approach that allowed us to weigh all options and prepare for almost any issue that could arise. As with any selling process, there were bumps in the road that were beyond our control, but her supportive, yet tough nature helped me stay calm and optimistic. And in the toughest of negotiation moments, when I wanted to choose the easy road, she pushed to get me a better price and fairer contract terms. She always had my best interests at heart.
In the end, Susan became not only my professional confidant, but also my friend. She has a terrific personality - the tenacity of a bull dog, but the heart of a saint. I will always look to Susan for any future housing transactions and will refer her to anyone I can.

Susan is an absolute gem. We cannot recommend her enough. We are first time home owners and somewhat new to the region. We have been saving up and researching for years for our dream home. Its purchase is the most important investment of our lives thus far. We spoke to a few agents before finding Susan. Most of them seemed more concerned with the sale than the client. Susan was the virtual opposite. From the moment we met her, she always sought to understand our needs and worked diligently to ensure they were met. After showing us a few homes, she found a HUD home that fit our description exactly. We loved it. She walked us through the unique process of bidding on a home through the HUD system. She provided extensive data about sale prices for similar homes in the area. She advised us to submit the bid that we wanted to pay. We ended up purchasing the perfect home in the perfect area for much less than we expected. What more can you ask for? After we won the bidding process, she made sure that inspectors checked for every possible flaw. She reminded us of deadlines and helped locate inspectors. She was right by our side every step of the way. She always communicated openly and honestly. There was not a single moment that we questioned her methods or morals. Now we are living the dream and we thank her everyday (not in person). Her effort was amazing. We are eternally grateful. If you want an honest, caring, and diligent agent who will fight for you at every step, choose Susan Zazzetti.
