Susan made my home selling process a collaborative process. She quickly understood my intentions and formulated a plan accordingly. I'll admit my property wasn't easy to sell given it was a small house on a corner lot but she came through and found a buyer.

I appreciate her efforts and would highly recommend her. Her wisdom lead the way to the sale. All I have to say is, Thank You, Susan!

We interviewed 3 high volume brokers in our town. Susan and Jack were very knowledgeable, listened and understood what we were looking for and explained their reasoning and approach without the marketing fluff. We liked their hands on approach to showings. When Susan and Jack left after the interview was over, the three of us just looked at each other in agreement - and they were not the highest price estimate. The sales process and their service was excellent and we were very pleased to have multiple offers within 48 hours of listing.

Because of Susan's recommendations are based on her knowledge of the market. She listens and guides her clients through the process and does not rush through just to make a quick sale.

I loved working with Susan James. I was buying for the first time 2,200 miles miles away during a pandemic. I had to buy doing everything virtually. I needed someone who knew the area and really listened to my needs. It was extremely important she could navigate me through the process since the way real estate sales is handled very differently in California than Illinois. Susan was also available which was challenging with the time difference. She really looked out for me. I would definitely call her again and highly recommend her.

Following the advice of a good friend, I chose to work with Susan James when the time came for me to sell my parents' home. Throughout the process, Susan was assisted by Jack Maher; together, they make a great team. Susan is an excellent realtor. She gave me good advice, told me how I should proceed, what information I should collect, and how to prepare the house for showings. She explained the terms specific to real estate and the law so that I was able to understand the entire process. And when I contacted my attorney, she said that I was fortunate because I was working with Susan who is known for her honesty. Without any qualification, I highly recommend Susan James from Century 21 Elm.

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.

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 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.
