Susan Williams

Instructor, Realtor®

Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions you will make. Having bought and sold many homes, I understand how much is at stake, both financially and emotionally. Let's work together to make your move successful, and the process enjoyable. I will listen to your goals and desires, and help you navigate the real estate world with ease. I aim to do more than just help you with the buying or selling transaction. I want to ensure that you find the home that you want, at a price that you are comfortable with. Growing up in a military family, I am very familiar with the moving process. I know how hard it can be to leave your home and reestablish yourself in a new community. Let me assist you with making the transition smoother. Since I have moved many times, I have negotiated contracts, dealt with movers, inspections, and repairs, all while keeping the house spotless for showings. I know what it's like to be in your shoes, and have the expertise to help you navigate the process. Together, we can find the home that is right for your family. Transitioning to a new home is an exciting and challenging time. I want to assist you in making it as seamless as possible.
