Thank you for your recommendation!
Your feedback is very much appreciated.
"Sue represented us in our home sale which closed this past month. She was professional, proactive and conducted this transaction with a high level of expertise. Sue was available and reachable and returned our phone calls and texts quickly. Her insights and suggestions were helpful and accurate which helped us remain calm throughout this process and kept it moving along. We always felt like Sue cared and I was thankful to have her experienced and expert guidance from start to finish. Thank you, Sue! "
-Carla Molowa, Client
"Sue helped us to find our dream home, and was instrumental in making the process as easy as possible. She was great throughout the search and negotiating process as we looked for the right home- she was very responsive to questions and helped us to fully evaluate potential homes. She has a large network of service professionals that she can recommend, which was invaluable when we had our inspections. Above all, she was a pleasure to work with! My whole family, including our kids, loved her!"
-Britton and Nicholas Morin, Client
""Chip and I will be recommending you to anyone who needs a realtor. You were so patient - more than I was. I think I was about ready to give up. So far, Chip and I are having a great time getting settled. Although I think it could take us a year or more! Thanks for everything!""
-Sabina & Chip, Client
"As a real estate professional myself I knew I needed someone who would listen and hear my needs and also someone I could trust. Sue was all that and more. She was a pleasure to work with and made the stressful process of selling my home even fun! "
-Rachel Lipschutz, Client
""Thank you so much for finding our dream home. We are so happy here and very proud of it. Everyone comments on how nice the house is and the neighbors have asked how we bought it so quickly and quietly. You made everything so easy for us. You were very patient and kind throughout the whole process. We really appreciate how you always took time to explain our options so we could make educated decisions. All of your recommendations were wonderful, too...""
-Emily and Eric Ostrowski, Client
"Sue was fantastic to work with from start to finish. Having rented our whole lives, we were overwhelmed both with having to move from NYC to the suburbs on a short timeline and with the home buying process in general. Sue made everything easy and manageable. She went out of her way to be available whenever we needed her, even on weekends and evenings. With Sue's help, we were able to find and close on a house we loved in 3 months. We cannot recommend her enough and are so, so fortunate to have had her help. She is the best!"
-Luke and Jenn R, Client
"I have been thinking a lot about what I can say to thank you for serving us with the sale of our house. It still feels a bit surreal! It's like we are on vacation! Years ago, when we first started talking about selling our house, I knew that I would be asking you to help us. I knew you would take good care of us. Thank you for all that you did to make things run smoothly for us. I definitely was not on top of my game as far as focus and detail were concerned. Through all the difficulties my family was experiencing, I never once worried about the house sale. You have no idea what a gift that was and I truly believe it was you that eased the anxiety for me. I am glad we connected and hope that we stay in touch! "
-Joanne S, Client
"“Sue was fantastic throughout the process and went above and beyond to not only show us properties, but to show that she has a vested interest in getting us everything we wanted and needed. She was responsive whenever we had an inquiry and facilitated a lot if introductions for us."
-Joe Chanley, Client
"Thanks so much for your assistance and guidance in the February 2018 sale of our home in Fanwood. It was by chance that I walked into the open house around the corner several months earlier and met you. There are so many realtors to choose from and making the decision to sign with you resulted in a quick sale and smooth closing. Your experience and knowledge was evident from the moment you walked into our home. Your use of a stager made a big difference in the appeal of our home after living there for almost 35 years and resulted in a quick sale for full asking price! We appreciate your responsiveness at all times and keeping us fairly calm during the stressful stage of getting our home ready for the sale, hosting the open house and being a great liaison between us and the buyers. We wish you all the best!"
-Kathi and Steve Cohen, Client
"I absolutely recommend Sue Checchio for the sale of your current home, or purchase of your next home. Having had both experiences with Sue, I can tell you that she is the professional to get either job done. With her attention to detail, her sales experience, and creative strategies, Sue will be there with you every step of the way. I have known Sue now for a number of years, and what started out as a realtor - client relationship has turned into a strong friendship. She helped me to find the perfect house to satisfy both my geographic preferences and economic situation - no easy challenge. When the sale of my home hit a roadblock, she expertly navigated me through it until it was successfully sold - and for a higher price. I don’t think you could ask for a better realtor to help guide you through one of the most important financial decisions you will ever make. "
-Elizabeth Murphy, Client
"The support, patience and guidance Sue provided us as we navigated the purchase of our first home was something we will always be grateful for. From the start of our search, she listened to what we were looking for, asked the right questions, and ultimately - Sue is the one who "found" our home - and we loved it as soon as we set foot inside! Once the purchase process began, we experienced the same attention and support. We knew we were in good hands working with Sue from the beginning, and would recommend her to anyone looking to make a move to the area!"
-Marykate & Brian O'Boyle, Client
"Sue Checchio is hands down one of the top real estate agents in the Westfield area. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, and if you are selling your home, she is absolutely the agent you want to hire. With both Sue's and her stager's tips, our home looked amazing when we listed last February at the start of the Spring market. I specifically told Sue that she had two weeks to sell my home. She priced the home properly to gain attention, and she accomplished the task in just 3 days with multiple offers and a final closing price over our asking price. Sue is reliable, honest, trustworthy, and dependable. Selling a home is an overwhelming and emotional task, and Sue held our hand every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent, and so thrilled to have also built a friendship in the process. I would recommend Sue to anyone buying or selling a home - she is absolutely the person you need working on your side."
-Carolyn Ryan, Client
""...You might have seen the article in today's Times Real Estate section about the Diane Keaton-Morgan Freeman movie. It is about selling a Brooklyn apt. It talks about realtors and does make mention about the good ones holding the sellers' hand so I thought of you.""
-K Maher, Client
".....We are really happy to have met you at the Open House that made you our choice for a realtor we wanted to work with. Your professionalism as well as your great personality made this experience more pleasant for us."
-The Karant Family, Client
"Sue made buying our first home feel so easy! She was always available and willing to answer all of our questions at any time of day, and made sure we stayed informed throughout the entire process. She had our best interest in mind, and was always honest with us. Sue was very supportive throughout the ups and downs of this emotional process, and I couldn't imagine going through this without her. She was really willing to listen to what we wanted and work with us to ensure we found the perfect home! "
-Jessica Mondon and Jonathan Pease, Client
"Many thanks for all your help during our home search and buying process. We appreciated your fairness and dedication, and we're looking forward to growing our family in our new home."
-Kristian and Bridget Andersen, Client
"It is with the deepest gratitude that we wish to share our heartfelt appreciation to Sue Checchio of Coldwell Banker for her consummate professionalism in helping us to prepare and sell our Westfield home. Her comprehensive expertise and understanding of market conditions, coupled with her attention to detail, quickly opened our home to serious buyers and, most importantly, to closing the deal. She worked unceasingly to move our property with minimal disruption to our family life. Sue became our trusted advisor whose generosity and helpfulness knew no bounds. We would highly, and without qualification, recommend Sue Checchio as a realtor par excellence. "
-Mary and John Dura, Client
"We were in the process of getting our house ready for sale. Sue came highly recommended to us as someone we should work with when we were actually ready to sell. So I called her, met her, gave her a tour of my house and told her we had a number of things we still wanted to take care of before listing in the spring. She advised us not to wait! While it was typically a slow time for house sales, she noted there was not much available on the market in our price range and what was on the market had already been seen. We decided to give her the listing, in house only for two weeks, and then when we were ready, would list on MLS. Never made it that far. Sold on first weekend, first showing. Throughout the process, she was a calm, steady presence. Helped us navigate the sale seamlessly in what can be a stressful situation for both buyer and seller. I would highly recommend her to either! "
-Leslie Sullivan, Client
"When we recently bought our home in Westfield, Sue acted as more than our highly knowledgeable real estate agent. She was our trusted friend, meaning she really listened to what we wanted in a house, and happily took us to see as many as it took until we found the one we knew was right. From that crucial moment, she expertly shepherded us through what is too often the stressful process of negotiating. We felt completely cared for in her capable hands from house hunting to closing day. We’ve bought and sold several homes, but our recent purchase was by far the smoothest transaction yet. "
-Liz Kinsley, Client
"Sue is my Sales Associate at Coldwell Banker in Westfield, NJ. She found us our dream house in 2007, but not before showing us many many others. During the search, I emailed and texted her often - I am impatient and don't sleep - bad combo in the eyes of many real estate agents, BUT not Sue. She has the patience of saint and truly knows the area. Now that we are in our dream house, she is still a part of my life. I recommend her to everyone, including my sister, and she is now a friend of the family. This all began b/c she is the best damn Sales Associate out there!!!"
-Michael Beshar, Client
"We are so happy to have found our first home with Sue alongside us every step of the way. She is professional, accessible, and most importantly knowledgeable, qualities that make up an excellent realtor. As first time home buyers, the process of finding a home can be daunting, Sue helped us feel at ease and provided us with the support and guidance that we needed. We are so grateful we found someone who truly knows the community and who has remained a friend even after our home search has ended."
-Ashley and Jamie Mandaglio, Client
"We have known Sue for years and feel completely comfortable with her professionally and personally. Sue has always been patient, kind and would go out on a limb for us whenever we needed her to. She is a perfect combination of every fantastic quality we respect in a Realtor!"
-Nicole LaCorte Klein and Matthew Klein, Client
"There aren't enough words to describe the level of service Sue provides. My wife and I used her on a recommendation from a friend back in 2002 for the purchase of our first home. Sue was instrumental in that transaction. She again helped us with the recent purchase (12/09) of our new home in Scotch Plains. She knows the "ins and outs" of the business like no one else. Professional, timely, knowledgeable and gregarious are some descriptors of Sue. When it comes to real estate - whether you are buying or selling - you want Sue on your team."
-Matthew Klein, Client
"Working with Sue was an absolute pleasure. From the first viewing to the final closing, she was there every step of the way to make the home buying process seamless and enjoyable. Sue was very persistent with answering all emails and phone calls even on her days off! I would highly recommend Sue to anyone that is ready to buy a new home!!! Thank you again Sue!!"
-Liz and Greg Sherger, Client
"... Besides being a true professional in every sense of the word, I am not sure we could have found anyone more truly engaged as well. Sue was always available for us and our millions of questions. She would send us messages both early in the morning and late in the evening. Sue guided us through the ups and downs of selling and buying a house and helped us keep our sanity along the way. When we started looking for a house while the sale was under contract, her commitment to helping us was even more impressive. She was on top of every listing that we were interested in and found the house that we now own before it even hit the multiple listing. Her counsel and strategy helped us win the bid on our new house and relieve the stress of having sold a house and having nowhere to go."
-Denis Bret and Lisa Cummings, Client
"We were lucky enough to be introduced to Sue through friends of ours when beginning to look for our new home and will undoubtedly be referring her to friends and family moving forward. During the entirety of the process, she was very accessible and easy to talk with no matter the topic. We knew that she had our best interests in mind and would not hesitate to advocate on our behalf when needed. Buying or selling a home will always be a stressful process to some degree, but it was reassuring to know that we had Sue in our corner to help guide us along the way."
-Mark and Caitlin Haas, Client
"Sue was very instrumental in helping us to find our "castle" ! Very flexible to fit our busy work schedules and she has a very good understanding of the local real estate market as well as taking an interest in you to understand better what to look for. She brought in great tactics in the negotiations process which helped us to get to where we wanted to be."
-Lisette Ditters, Client
"Sue is the real estate agent everyone hopes for. She patiently worked with me over the course of a year to make strategic improvements on the house and arranged for a stager and a professional photographer, who were both at the top of their game, to work with me as well. When it came time to list the house, Sue actually recommended a listing price that was higher than I anticipated. We proceeded to list at her recommended price and received an offer at the listing price from the very first showing. She was a good negotiator and someone you definitely want on your team because she looks out for you. I would recommend her to anyone selling or purchasing a home. I am so thrilled with the results. I also want to note that she saved us thousands in unnecessary home improvements I would have otherwise had done if she didn’t steer me away from them. Thank you, Sue!"
-Kristin and Matt Drummond, Client
"Sue is a consummate professional and the best real estate agent we have ever had. She treats her clients with respect and has their best interests at heart. She makes the sometimes overwhelming experience of finding the right home easy. My husband, Tony and I truly value Sue's wealth of knowledge and experience in the local real estate market and recommend her highly."
-Nina Garone, Client
"I feel so fortunate to know the two of you and to have had such care and love with my move. I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
-June Sobell, Client
"Sue Checchio guided me through the entire home selling process from beginning to end. She generously provided excellent advice on how to prepare my home for sale a year before I put my house on the market. She has extensive knowledge and experience in the area and was able to refer me to the right professional for every issue. Sue answered every question I had and was always available when needed and found the right buyers for my home. I would highly recommend Sue Checchio to any seller OR buyer. She's the consummate professional with a terrific personality."
-Jeanne Colucci, Client
"When we first started the process of looking for homes... never in my wildest dreams could I imagine sending a thank you to (an agent). However, that was before I met you."
-Ruth McManus, Client
"I am honored to have known Susan Checchio for over 35 years. During this time I have known Sue to be an honest, dedicated and intelligent individual both personally and professionally. ... Several years ago my ailing Mother needed to sell her Westfield home of forty five (45) years. Even with her fragile memory Mom remembered Sue, (Mom always loved Sue!) and knew she was a realtor. Knowing that Mom could trust Sue helped make the impact of such a devastating change a little gentler for everyone. Sue skillfully guided us through the entire process from negotiating offers to closing. More recently my husband and I sold our home in North Jersey. Of course, we enlisted Sue to represent us in our search and purchase of a new home. During her professional career Sue has continued to excel, educate and broaden her scope of knowledge. She holds a number of professional certifications and accreditations. Sue also has a heart of gold and a true, honest empathy for people. "
-Rose Lejaski, Client
""We are so grateful for everything you did for us to make selling our home to stress-free. You are so calm and helpful ~ I was a nervous wreck! We are settling into our new home, but will never forget you and how you found us the lovely New Jersey house in Scotch Plains." "
-Glenn & Lisa Rollins, Client
"Bill and I want to thank you for all the hard work and expert know-how you brought to the process of selling our four properties. Not only were you well informed and thorough in bringing these four sales to completion, you were always pleasant and professional, willing to listen and take our thoughts and ideas into consideration. You are also a good negotiator when buyer and seller meet an impasse, calm and controlled when things appear to be unraveling and steadfast in closing a deal. We should know, we witnessed these attributes multiple times over the last several years. Thank you for giving us your very best. We are very very happy to be in Virginia near our daughters but we do have fond memories of Westfield. What we had to accomplish in disposing of properties in New Jersey, a daunting task from our perspective, was accomplished quickly and professionally for us by you. Bill and I wish the best for you, Sue, both professionally and personally, You were a pleasure to work with."
-Bill and Evelyn Zachar, Client
"I have had several positive experiences with Sue as both my selling and purchasing agent. Most recently she was able to help sell a house quickly and for a great price, under some very difficult personal circumstances. Sue has great insight into all aspects of selling property - staging, marketing, pricing, etc. Equally important, she is very professional and easy to work with. As you can see, I have used her more than once and would do so again... so I highly recommend her services!"
-Karina Fuentes, Client
"Moving from the city to Westfield was something we talked about for years. After meeting with Sue and discussing our wants and needs, she reaffirmed our decision and made us excited to start this new chapter in our lives. Her dedication, expertise and reposefulness was outstanding. She provided us with so much useful information and not to mention local contacts to help us along the way. Our experience with Sue was exceptional and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch real estate professional in Westfield!"
-Lauren Mehmedovic, Client
"Our experience with Sue Checchio was positive and we felt extremely confident in her ability as well as professionalism in selling our home. Sue appreciated our home's special and unique qualities and while experiencing her enthusiasm, we knew we had chosen the best agent for us! "
-Catherine Wendel, Client
"This is the 2nd time is 7 years that Sue has been our real estate "expert." I use that term because she's so much more than a broker. She operates in the most caring and consultative manner, juggling seemingly endless tasks to make the entire process run as smoothly as any homebuyer would want. She helped us buy our first home in 2011 and then just recently helped us with both the sale of that house and purchase of a new home this month. Her expert hand enabled us sell our house for more than we ever imagined it could sell in just 6.5 short years of living there. I would refer Sue to ANYONE that has any real estate needs, whether first-time homebuyers or seasoned homeowners. Bottom line...she cares a lot about her clients and is available at all hours of the day. We adore Sue and it's no surprise to us that she's so highly regarded!"
-Leslie and David Weinroth, Client
"Our family was in the difficult position of having to put our family house on the market after our father’s death. Our parents had lived in the house for 49 years and it had been home base for all six of us siblings. We’d cared for both of our parents until their deaths in the house and the process of preparing the house for sale, dealing with inspections, considering whether to rehab it ourselves to sell, and entertaining offers was both painful and confusing. Thank goodness we had Sue Checchio to help us through this difficult process. We hit a few crisis points and Sue (who had known a couple of us in high school, we discovered!) was so knowledgeable and reassuring. We consulted her frequently and trusted her advice and wisdom. We would recommend her to anyone preparing their family home for sale— her expertise, combined with kindness and practical wisdom, are invaluable. Thank you, Sue!"
-Mary Ann Dzuback, Client
"Sue helped me sell two houses and buy one over the years. On both sales, she made sure we got the best price possible, even when other agents were advising that the price was too high. She believed in the value of the houses and stuck to her guns. I highly recommend her if you are buying or selling in Westfield."
-Ken Bigelow, Client
"We are so grateful to Sue for finding us our new home during the pandemic. We put our first house on the market 2 weekends before the lockdown. I was too concerned about Covid so we took it off the market. When the market in Westfield started to get super hot Sue gave us a gentle reminder and we listed our house. Our house sold in 1 weekend but we needed to find a new home. Sue showed me our current home and I thought it needed too much work. My husband saw it and loved it. After I looked at the bones of the house and saw the potential of the space I began to love it too. We are almost fully settled and have done a few minor cosmetic jobs. The best part of our new home is the block we landed on, our kids have made so many great new friends, and my husband and I have too. We highly recommend Sue!!!!"
-Evelyn Rabenold, Client
"As first time home buyers, we couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent than Sue. She was extremely helpful throughout the process with a ton of knowledge of the area and key contacts to make the process seamless. Would recommend her to anyone and use her again in a heartbeat! "
-Colby and Emily Haring, Client
"Sue was a tireless advocate for my wife and I throughout the entire home buying experience. She was constantly operating two to three steps ahead of all parties involved and she helped us navigate the process under tight time-constraints. As first-time buyers, this was an incredible asset for both of us. Most of all, though, Sue had our best interest in mind from start to finish. She clearly wants what is best, not just expedient, for her clients."
-Dave Weinstein, Client
"If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.” - Martin Luther King “Today’s Instagram post from Sue Checchio marking the birthday of MLK inspired me to write this testimonial. The quote she chose on this day is the epitome of who she is as a person, as a friend, as a selfless volunteer, as a creative and as a realtor. As she applies this to being a realtor, you can rest assured that her intentions are always pure and thoughtful. She is honest and kind coupled with knowledgeable and capable. You are in the best of hands!"
-Deb and Anthony Cerami, Client
"My wife and I contacted Sue over two years ago to help us find a home. From day one to closing, Sue went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for in a real estate agent. Her depth of knowledge of the market, keen negotiating skills and friendly positive attitude combine to make her an invaluable asset to anyone looking to purchase a home. I would happily use her services again, along with her equally deft associate Kara Murphy. Anyone looking for a home in Union County would do well to contact Sue Checchio!"
-David Weinroth, Client
"We immediately felt comfortable with Sue and knew that she had our best interests in mind from the start. Sue is very knowledgeable about Westfield and the surrounding areas. Sue really listened to what we were looking for in a home. She was incredibly honest with us and really respected our time. We are moving from New York City and it wasn’t easy for us to look at houses. Sue made sure to preview everything for us. The third house we looked at with Sue turned out to be the one! Throughout the entire process, Sue went above and beyond what she needed to do to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible. Sue supported us through the emotional decision of buying our first home in Westfield and there is no one else we would have wanted guiding us through the process. We can’t wait to move into our dream home and we can’t thank Sue enough for all of her help."
-Allison and Matt Levitt, Client
"It was with great sadness and some apprehension when we decided to sell our house in Cranford and move back to PA. Since this was our 1st time selling a house, we did not know what to expect. After our first meeting with you, we knew we were in the best hands possible. You are truly an outstanding Realtor. In every way you are professional, committed, focused, energetic, positive, compassionate, responsive, and have such a high level of expertise. But one of your most important features is how you truly care for your clients. Even when you were extremely busy, you checked in with us to make sure we were doing o.k. Your support and friendship really helped us through our transition. We truly appreciate all that you did for us. If we ever move back to the area, or know anyone searching for a home in the area, your name is at the top of our list!!! Thank you!"
-Norm and Rebecca Neafcy, Client
"As longtime residents of Westfield it was a very difficult decision to sell our family home. We knew Sue as a family friend, and reached out to her early in our decision process. At the end of our conversation we were not only impressed with Sue’s knowledge of the market and her grasp of the sales process, but were immediately comforted by her perfect mix of a caring personality and professionalism. We challenged Sue with several “wish list” outcomes: a fair sale price, a nice family, reasonable negotiations, short marketing period and an extended closing period. After two weeks on the market Sue delivered the perfect buyer and guided us through pain free negotiations. The inspection and ultimately the closing process were both equally without incident. All of the asks on our “wish list” were delivered! Our relationship with Sue has grown into a trusted friendship and we can proudly recommend Sue Checchio without reservation to anyone contemplating selling their home."
-Carrie and Joe Swingle, Client
"I would recommend Sue in a heartbeat for anyone looking to buy their dream home in or around Westfield. As first time home-buyers, she held our hand every step of the way and always advocated on our behalf. She made sure we made informed decisions and she had our best interest at heart. After many negotiations with the sellers, Sue was ultimately the reason we got the house. I will direct all of my friends to Sue who are looking for a realtor in the area."
-Valerie Anderson, Client
