THIS IS AN EDIT: A BIG thank you to Mike at the 76th and Good Hope store, for rectifying a problem that I encountered at the pharmacy with a meter. Mike called, and was very apologetic with my situation. He was also nice when I met him at the store the next day. I still think the pharmacist needs a 101 class in etiquette. I picked up three prescriptions, one being a narcotics, and he never asked if I had any questions. His assistant brought the medication to the counter. Thanks again Mike, I give you FIVE stars!! I recently visited the pharmacy on 76th and Good Hope to pick up a diabetic meter. The pharmacist gave me a meter that had expired over four (4) years ago. I noticed that the rebate card expired in 2012, but I simple tossed it in the garbage. When I tried to test with my meter, it did not work. I called, and the manager was on duty that day. I told her that a male pharmacist was working that day, and gave me the meter. He was not professional at all. I called him after I returned home and stated it was the same out-of-date meter that I was trying to update. He simply replied that it was the meter the Dr. prescribed. It was a free meter, so I guess he did not care. When I spoke to the manager, she told me to bring the meter in, and she discovered that it was expired. There was one more meter on the shelf and it was due to expire in January 2016, which would have only given me nine months. She said she would order me a new meter, and she did. I now have an up-to-date meter. The other pharmacist, did not check the expiration date, and apparently did not care, since it was free. I had to make three trips back and forth because of his carelessness. SHAME ON HIM!!!!
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.
Second to none - I am so proud to call Powers Realty Group my home. I have been a Realtor for almost 20 years and have worked in several different environments. I can say without hesitation that the high level of integrity, tenacity, sincerity and discretion that are at the core of this company are unmatched anywhere. Our agents are smart and experienced yet a day does not go by that we are not se arching for ways to better serve, better perform and go far beyond the expectations of our clients. We are not satisfied with being good or being great. We want to be the best, because we love what we do, we love the people and the families we work with and we think doing business this way is just the right way to do things.
Powers Realty is a first class real estate company all the way. From their expert knowledge of the local market to their unparalleled customer service it's no wonder they are growing so fast. I've known and worked with Suzanne and Gretchen for several years now and consider them to the best in the business. They truly care about their clients and giving them the best experience possible when buying or selling. This group is one of the most knowledgeable, professional, and passionate real estate teams I've worked with. They represent their clients with integrity and are really engaged in the local community. I would strongly recommend them to anyone buying or selling. You will be impressed.
Last January my husband lost his job, and I was in a panic trying to find us a place to move to with only one income. I saw Anderson Real Estate on my way to work and decided to stop on my way home. I was greeted by one of the most pleasant women I have ever met. I don't know who the other reviews are describing because she was so comforting and willing to help when I was clearly upset about my current situation. Our family has been living in one of their town homes for six months now, and while a problem came up regarding a bathroom leak maintenance was prompt and made sure it was taken care. Jil has always been very professional.
Where do I begin - I can honestly say that I cannot even imagine working for any other Real Estate Broker. Recently, I celebrated my 2nd year anniversary here at The Powers Realty Group and what a glorious day that was. The knowledge that I have gained working here is priceless. It is so great to work for a company that goes above & beyond for their clients. At Powers Realty we know that the key to success is happy clients, and without that, we have nothing. Everyone I work with has the talent & skill set necessary to be successful and I am proud to be a part of this very special team.
I understand that we need more bilingual speaking workers nowadays but when you can't speak English in an English speaking country how in the world can you get a job??? But I can't get one if I can't speak Spanish?? Everything is backwards now! Maybe 10 of the employees in this establishment speak English most don't understand what I'm saying, it's ridiculous!!! I will no longer shop here it's one thing to give someone a job but if you can't even understand the language in the country you are working in then you should be learning the language at least or don't work
I retained Suzanne Powers of Powers Realty Group to sell my home. Suzanne staged my home, held open houses, and brought numerous buyers to my home. Unfortunately the market took a downturn and I was unable to sell my home. Suzanne however did provide a solution for my family and was able to secure a renter for my home. Suzanne's professionalism and market expertise was like none other real estate agent we have encountered. We will continue to refer Suzanne to our friends, colleagues, and family for all their real estate needs.
