I feel blessed that I had SUSAN James as broker. She went the extra mile. She tried to do her best, was never pushy. I felt cared for and respected. R

I really enjoyed working with Susan James. She was always professional and available to answer our phone calls or emails. We were new to buying a house and knew little about the process- Susan James did an excellent job answering all of our questions and responding in a timely manner. She always kept us informed of what was going on and the next steps to take throughout the entire process. She even took the time to explain every detail in a way that made sense to us. I would highly recommend Susan James to anyone purchasing a house.

Susan was great. She was with us throughout the entire process of selling our home. After we had a signed contract, she was very committed to making sure the inspections, paperwork, and closing went smoothly. I would highly recommend her!

I would give Susan higher marks if it were an option! It was great working with her this summer. I enjoyed the entire house buying and selling process with her and I always felt I was in good hands.

She was truly invested in helping us find the best home for us on the market. I felt like I was working with a family member. Thank you, Susan!

It was a pleasure to have Susan James, as well as, Jack Maher as my brokers. They both were very professional, knowledgeable, and understanding during my search for my home. They are an awesome team. I will definitely recommend them to family and friends.

We purchased our first home "by owner" & were reluctant to use a realtor when we decided to sell, however, Susan James made us feel like her family in assisting us through our entire process. We are truly grateful to have experienced it with so knowledgeable and delightful person.

We had been looking for a house since February, and finally found one in June. We had looked at over 60 house until we found the one that fit us best. Sue and Jack were not only patient and helpful, but they're knowledge and opinions helped steer us in the right direction. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to purchase!

We met with 3 other realtors before Susan James from CENTURY 21 Elm, Realtors. Susan made us feel at ease by explaining the whole process in terms that we could understand, and did not try to pressure us into making a quick decision. She was very professional, knowledgeable, honest, dedicated, patient, and friendly. We definitely made the right decision when we decided to go with her as our agent. We would highly recommend Susan James to anyone wanting to sell their home without any hassles. She is a life saver and we thank her for all she did for us during what could have been a very stressful period.

We have known Susan James for years and when it was time to sell our house, she was the only one we trusted to do the job. With two little kids, a newborn, and a big dog, Susan was extremely helpful and patient in helping us sell our house and continuing to help us find our dream house. Her sense of humor makes the experience more enjoyable. We am so glad we chose Susan to guide us through this journey.

We interviewed three brokers prior to listing with Sue James. Her upbeat attitude had two effects, it sold us on her and sold us on our own house. After she inspected our home and discussed the market and comps, we knew she could and would sell our home.

We had met Sue 38!years ago in the Jaycees but did not have much contact with her, this sales experience caused us to think we wish we had known her better and how many laughs we missed. She is a hard working, or should I say, always working RE professional who projects confidence and knowledge that she will sell your house. Once we committed with Sue, we had no worries. In fact, our home sold in 9 days with two offers on the table and thanks to Sue's efforts a sale price slightly higher than list.

Sue is professional and clearly one of the best in her field. She is friendly and listens to her clients. She does whatever she can to help. We have enjoyed working with her and have referred to her. While our current needs are met, we will likely work with Sue if we decide to purchase more property. Thank you for all of your efforts and a job well done! We are so pleased with the outcome!!

Susan James was recommended to me by 2 of my close Park Ridge friends. They both said she would do an excellent job, and they were right.

I have already recommended Susan James to two other people, and will continue to do so.

Susan James is an excellent real estate broker. She works extremely hard, can be reached all the time. Susan returns calls promptly and does what needs to be done to close the sale. She goes beyond and above the requirements. A pleasure to work with and she really knows the real estate business.

Susan "worked" the file from the multiple offers to the closing. Her hard work continues after the contract negotiations.

Susan is very professional in her approach. She is respectful to all parties in the transaction-including those who are not cooperative or not doing their part.

Great front desk office staff- very good team effort and approach.

We had interviewed 2 relators, but Susan's knowlege of the property was critical. She also guaranted the family that she would be the only one showing the property, which was a comfort to us all. Her warmth and sense of humor was a perfect fit for me and my family.

I can't say enough of Susan's knowledge of the complex, thank goodness for that, she was patient, trusting, and communicated with me and my family at every level.

Susan got us our asking price within 3-4 weeks of listing... amazing!

Well done in all aspects of the closing, and keeping us informed of and in the process.

A true professional at every level, I have already mentioned Susan's name to others, if they ever decide to sell their properties.

An asset to your company.

Susan James is very professional, and she has sold one house within 10 days of listing the property and the second property sold within 8 weeks.

We are very happy with the results our two clients received.

Susan came highly recommended from people who knew her.

Susan was very caring and we knew we were in good hands. She was easily accessible. Some days we had more than a couple of calls to her and she always answered her phone or returned our calls quickly. She explained the plan to sell our condo and went over all the paper work.

She was professional and patient. If we had questions, she always made time for us.

Susan was the only person we talked to, but she was a great representative of the company.

I was not looking forward to selling the condo and everything that goes with the process. I am glad Susan was our realtor. She knew the area and was far more helpful than we could have hoped for.

I would recommend Susan James to anyone wishing to sell their home. We had a condo to sell and she navigated us through the process of dealing with the condo board/association. You could tell she had a lot of experience. Susan was always accessible. I would most certainly use the services of Susan James again.
