Our experience with Susan was a complete joy and relief that we were in the hands of an expert. She was so competent in her knowledge of the market and real estate law. Susan was always on time, with a smile, and explained all aspects of our decisions and how they affected us. Her ease with others also made it easy to interact with the buyers, their agent, and the myriad host of inspectors. We would recommend anyone looking for a top notch real estate agent to choose Susan.
Susan was extremely professional in all aspects of listing my parents' house. She worked hard to assist in getting it ready to list, above and beyond what is normally expected from an agent. This resulted in four strong offers and an eventual sale for nearly $600K over the asking price.
I recently sold my waterfront home on Bainbridge Island. I had the absolute pleasure of working with Susan Grosten as my listing agent. The process from start to a very successful finish was handled expertly by Susan. Every detail was explained and put into action by Susan. Susan is detail-oriented, kind, professional, and made home selling a seamless pleasure. I happily and wholeheartedly recommend Susan for any and all real estate needs that require a seasoned professional.
Susan is responsive, knowledgeable, and has the highest of integrity. Honesty and trust are key to me and I never doubt Susan's ethics and integrity. Susan has represented me several times, including when I was buying and selling properties. The experiences always went smoothly. I enjoy working with her because, in addition to being very knowledgeable about real estate, she has a friendly and engaging personality. I am currently working with her on another purchase. I am being very selective, and she is patient and never tires of previewing properties. I sense she cares that I make the right purchase. Susan gets my highest recommendation.
