Bill and Shelly Williams – Kirkwood/ Roswell
“Working with Susie Simmons on both the selling and buying end was such a great decision on our part. She is extremely professional, detail-oriented, and knowledgeable on the current market trends. Her negotiation skills are sharp, and her follow-up is always right on-time. The experience was a pleasure and too bad for us that she found our forever home because we would welcome the opportunity to work with her again and again! Susie is a rock-solid real estate agent and is a lot of fun to work with. If you are seeking to buy or sell, look no further. Susie is the best!”
Vicki Johnson – Decatur, GA
“You probably only need a realtor a few times in your life. Let me make a strong recommendation: Susie Simmons with Keller Williams. I was in the unenviable position of selling my home (and looking for a new one) during the busy spring season of a school year, all while living (and working) in the house I was selling. Not a fun prospect! Susie made it seem totally manageable. She suggested a plan for pre-packing, de-cluttering, staging and marketing my house in a way that allowed me to stay in place and keep my family sane (including all the pets). It also meant my house looked the best it ever had, and got me a top selling price. She was always there if I needed phone numbers or resources to get something done to the house in the process, and made recommendations that paid off. When you are buying and selling you spend a lot of quality time with your realtor. Susie was a fantastic person to talk with – very professional – but with a great sense of humor and perspective which got me through any rough spots. She knows the City of Decatur market and surrounding areas very well, and could appreciate any thoughts or concerns I had down to the street or individual home. I always felt Susie offered sound, honest advice when I felt overwhelmed or unsure about my buying options. We are now thrilled about our new City of Decatur home. My family and I are so happy about how smoothly everything went, and cannot recommend her highly enough. ”
Beth and Brenan Stearns – Decatur, GA
“Not only did Susie help us find our wonderful new home, but she also worked wonders to help sell our old home in Old Fourth Ward. Following her advice we accomplished both goals in just about four months – very impressive. Right from the start Susie expertly guided us through the home buying/selling process, told us what to expect and was extremely patient, flexible and responsive to our needs. Heck, she even had our daughter over for a couple of play dates so us grown-ups could drive around and look at houses. Her great customer service, combined with a thorough knowledge of the local market and savvy negotiating prowess brought us great results. We couldn’t be happier. There are few guarantees in life but Susie’s ability to sell a house (and have you be happy in process) is probably as close as you can get.”
Carol Thomas Brady – Decatur, GA
“As I am reflecting on 2012, you certainly came to the forefront of my thoughts. 2012 was a very difficult year with the passing of my mother Mildred Thomas. Her home on Avery Street in had been her place of residence for over 50 years.
Faced with selling the house ater her death, I was overwhelmed with strong emotion. My family had moved to Decatur in 1958 where I began 4th grade at Winona Park School and my father passed away 20 years later. As I made the decision to sell this home there was a certain criteria I has in mind for representation- professional, knowledgeable, and results oriented. After viewing your sales record and meeting with you, I knew I had the “best of the best” to represent this home. You exceeded my expectations. You felt the there would be a contract within 2 weeks- the house went under contract in 3 days. As we encountered different “bumps in road” you worked through all of them to get to closing.
Susie, thank you so much for the outstanding job! You have certainly earned my respect and gratitude!”
Dan Buice – Decatur, GA
“Not only did Susie expertly assist me in the purchasing of my first home in June of 2007, I called her a little over 2 years later to sell the same house. Starting with our first meeting in August, Susie was always available to meet and kept me thoroughly informed in every step of the process. Susie took the time to get to know me and my situation before offering a specific strategy for selling the house. I always felt like my best interests were her top priority. Susie didn’t just treat me with respect and patience – she delivered results. My ultimate goal was to sell my house in a short amount of time, but still get adequate compensation on the hard work I had put into it. Susie sold my house in 52 days (in a rather slow market) at a price that left me leaving the closing table with a smile. I am extremely grateful for all Susie’s hard work and dedication in being my realtor!”
Henry – Austell, GA
“The comfort I received knowing Susie Simmons was on top of the game when I purchased my first home is priceless. Her quick actions, tough negotiations, and immaculate record keeping made my dream home a reality.”
Laura LeDuc – Decatur, GA
“Susie is the BEST! She went above and beyond the call of duty selling my Decatur home. From our first pre-list meeting to the closing, Susie’s service was extraordinary. She was everything I could have asked for in a listing agent AND MORE! Here’s why:
Susie knew the market. She drove me around to see comparables in the neighborhood so I could get a feel for the competition. She had seen all the homes before and during our tour of each place, she talked with me about how my home compared.
Susie listened to me. In this tricky market, I was concerned about pricing and that my house might not stack up to the competition. She really listened to my concerns and shared valuable information and advice. Armed with this information, we chose to list the house at a price I felt very comfortable with.
Susie knew how to stage my home and yard so that it showed its best. I had very limited funds to spend on improvements before sale. Susie advised me to get a pre-sale inspection and then helped me prioritize projects so that I got the biggest bang for my buck. She also suggested contractors who did great work at reasonable prices with a quick turn-around. Her suggestions helped get my home sold quickly.
Susie went beyond the call of duty. Susie (and her team) spent several days working at my house to make sure it was ship-shape for sale. They literally got their hands dirty helping with yard clean-up and improving landscaping. Inside, Susie also helped me de-clutter and pack. Our house and yard never looked better!
Susie sold my home before it even got listed. Susie sold my home before it was ever listed on MLS for full asking price. Really! We closed in less than six weeks. I am sure Susie’s relationship with her buyers helped me get a fast sale. She knew what the buyers were looking for and was able to negotiate a win-win for me and for them!
I couldn’t have imagined a better experience. I thank the stars I had Susie at my side.”
The Charles-Furlong Family – Joey, Michelle, and Delia – Kirkwood / Oakhurst – Decatur, GA
“We first met Susie, Mark, and Amelia Grace through a group of Kirkwood families that gathers weekly at Bessie Branham Park to play and socialize. As our daughters played, it came up in conversation that we were considering a move to a bigger place but were concerned about selling our home. When we sat down a few weeks later to discuss our real estate needs, she put our minds to ease with some encouraging news about home sales in the area and an impressive portfolio. She presented us with a clear marketing strategy (which I’ve never had an agent do before) and got us a full price offer within two weeks of listing. That would be impressive in any case, but during the summer of 2009 it was practically unheard of. With the clock being driven by the closing on our sale, she helped us find the right house for us and make the transition smoothly from one place to the other. She even arranged play dates for our daughters so that we could take care of some of the drudgery of moving. Our daughters still play together and we consider Susie and her family as valued friends.”
Phillip & Christy Prater – Grant Park – Atlanta, Georgia
“We had a great experience working with Susie! She is very knowledgeable about Intown properties and did a fantastic job helping us find exactly what we were looking for. We had a lot of obstacles getting our home closed in this difficult market, but Susie did everything possible to make sure that we got to the closing table on-time! We felt very confident going through the whole home buying experience with her and have recommended Susie to our friends and family also looking to find a new home.”
Dr. Beth Griffith-Docka – Sycamore Ridge – Decatur, GA
“Susie helped us buy our home in Decatur. After a very frustrating relationship with a previous realtor, Susie was simply a breath of fresh air. She made our home buying process easy, painless and fun. Susie was prompt and timely to all of our meetings and appointments. She was trustworthy,professional, and honest in all encounters. Susie is not only an expert in her field, but she is also a vibrant,radiant and warm person. I would defintely recommend Susie to anyone looking to buy a house in the Atlanta area.”
Katherine and Stewart Shannon – Medlock Park – Decatur, GA
“Susie Simmons was our real estate agent on the sale of our former home and purchase of our new home. A purchase and sale could typically be very stressful, but Susie was reassuring and able to make our experience both fun and easy. My husband and I are so fortunate to have had a wonderful person to help us buy and sell our homes, and we do and will recommend Susie Simmons to everyone we know. Thanks, Susie!”
Kathy and Travis White – Kirkwood / East Atlanta – Atlanta, GA
“We put our confidence in Susie Simmons when we decided to sell our home in Kirkwood this year. Within a short period, we received a significant amount of traffic, and in a challenging market, we received an offer within the first 6 weeks of listing our home. Susie has been informative, attentive, and professional through the entire process. We will definitely be calling on Susie for our future real estate needs!”
Darlene and Kellie – Decatur Terrace – Decatur, GA
“Susie made our experience of purchasing a home so very pleasant. My partner and I were very pleased with the services rendered by her. Susie knew that location was very important to us and never tried to show us anything other than what we were specifically interested in seeing. Susie was organized and kept us on track through the whole process. Even as we vacationed, prior to our closing date, Susie was taking care of the details back at home. Susie recommended only the best contractors, mortgage broker, inspectors, etc. We not only have a wonderful real estate agent but we have made her part of our family. We highly recommend Susie as a real estate agent to anyone we know considering buying or selling in the metro Atlanta area. She will not let you down!”
Patti Johnson – Realtor – Ellijay, Georgia
“Being a licensed real estate agent myself, I know Susie both professionally and personally. She is the one that will go the extra mile for you whether as a friend or an agent! Her services are exemplary. She goes beyond the expectations of an agent. She is honest and candid, thorough and perservering. However, what I like best is her positiive attitude and enthusiastic approach. She is always the professional and thoroughly knowlegable about the market. Of all the real estate agents in Atlanta I know, she is the one I refer my friends who want to buy or sell in Atlanta!”
Andy Whitaker – Powder Springs, GA
“Susie helped me with my first home-buying experience, and made it a great one! I had only one month to find a home and move into it. She successfully got me into a lovely home with days to spare. She made the entire process very easy and painless. I would highly recommend her to friends and family, as I already have. I don’t know what I would have done without her! I will definitely use her for the next time around! Thanks so much for everything!”
David Hart – Home Inspector
“I have worked with Susie Simmons for several years as a home inspector for her clients. I have always been impressed with her ability to listen to her clients and understand what they need. Susie maintains a professional demeanor and is able to handle delicate situations with ease.”
