“Having bought 4 houses now I feel I can say, with the authority of experience, that Ms. Barnett is an exceptional Real Estate Agent. Ms. Barnett took care to ask the right questions and listen to us, so that our confusing jumble of a wish-list became clearer and more rational. Most importantly she helped us find a house that we love and at a great price. I would recommend her services without hesitation.”
“Working with Susan has been my best experience yet when it comes to buying real estate. Her ability to suss out my specific wants and needs and then to stay focused and dedicated to finding a building that matches them has made the entire experience in locating a property seamless and painless. Her knowledge of the process and her ability to artfully negotiate on behalf of her clients makes her someone I would recommend unequivocally to anyone looking to purchase real estate.”
"Susan, you were the perfect seller’s agent: you were kind, enthusiastic, insightful, and still told us the truth so we could get our home in the right place to sell it fast. I’m so glad we took your very wise advice....you “got” the house, understood how to represent it, and ultimately (and quickly) got results.
You kept on top of the process at all times, and acted when you thought action was needed to generate interest in the property.
In short, you don’t just list a house – you sell it.
"To work with Susan is to know you are in good hands. That someone is on your side, working and looking in every corner to get your home sold as well as finding your new home! She is pleasant, professional, personable, and has a great intuitive nature that takes detailed mental notes on your unique situation. She doesn't miss a beat and works very hard for you, a rare gem in this day and age! I would recommend her to anyone !
She is ALL 5 stars !"
“Susan guided me (well, held my hand, so to speak) through the process of finding and purchasing a wonderful historical piece of property and commercial building in 2018. I could not have done it without her patience, expertise and wisdom. Always on top of her game, she used her knowledge of all the ins and outs of the real estate business--along with her love of the area--to successfully bring my dream of owning part of the Catskill Mountains to fruition.
You can't have anyone better on your side in any real estate deal!"
“We feel so fortunate that Susan was our agent for the sale of our home. Susan is so personable and responsive, two qualities that helped make the process go smoothly despite some challenges that came up. She was up on the current state of the market in our surrounding area and could counsel us wisely. Whether your deal happens quickly or takes some time, you'll find yourself working closely with your agent. Susan is a person that you'll appreciate working with from the outset and through to closing."
