Suzanne Powers and her team were so effective, they sold our house twice--two years apart! Why did she sell our house twice? After the first sale, we weren't clear about where we wanted to go. We were also overwhelmed by the process of downsizing. The second time, Suzanne referred us to a company that helped us sort, donate, and pack our household. It was a godsend. Suzanne and her team were consistently encouraging, professional, and patient. Other professionals in the field spoke unsolicited of her high level of integrity, professionalism and commitment to her clients. Selling a house is an emotional, sometimes draining experience. Suzanne and Powers Realty made it as seamless a transition for us as it could possibly be. And, most people only have to sell their house once. :)
My first encounter with Powers Realty happened when I was driving down Lake Dr. on a Sunday and noticed these purple Powers Realty signs all over the place, where previously there was nothing. I wondered who this Powers person was that was taking over the North Shore. A couple years later, I had the pleasure of working with one of her agents (Mike Lu) to purchase a home and was very impressed wit h his level of professionalism and knowledge of the transaction process. I was more impressed to learn that he had only been working with Suzanne for a few months. The level of detail and care put into my own transaction gave me the confidence to refer others to Mike Lu, and the Suzanne Powers Realty Group; knowing they would all experience the highest level of care.
I went to every local realtors' open houses before i decided to list with Powers Realty. Gretchen and Suzanne were by far the most welcoming and helpful. They were straight forward about what buyers want in Shorewood and helped me with what I needed to do to get my house to that point. I decided to take their advice and I spent $2,300. in refinishing floors, painting, cleaning, etc. They did a great job at staging my house and even cleaned areas I missed. I was impressed by the amount of time they dedicated. They were very professional and had a Powers agent present at every showing. They sold my house in three weeks for more than I thought they could. They charged the same as other realtors who do not include staging. I would use them again.
