Her years of experience coupled with her extensive knowledge of the local market resulted in a positive outcome in the sale of our house. Her wise counsel and confident marketing approach made a huge difference. Susan made the process of selling our house a positive experience.
Please convey to your seller my admiration and respect for you and the job you are doing as their agent. As I mentioned, you had the most complete listing information of all the homes we saw in the price range. I also thought your communication was outstanding. You are a real pro! Professional and pleasant! Good luck to you and your sellers.
We want to thank you for the extraordinary help you provided us in our relocating to the Washington DC area. From the very beginning, it was apparent to us that you were the perfect real estate professional for us. We appreciate your approach that begins with understanding our requirements and preferences and then mapping those to the communities and neighborhoods in the area before focusing on particular houses. Your deep and detailed knowledge of the Washington real estate market, responsiveness, honesty, and thoughtful judgment, combined with your high energy and great sense of humor, made what could have been a challenging undertaking a very quick and pleasant one.
From the beginning, Susan managed the sale of my parent’s home with flawless skill and commitment. She provide informed and useful guidance concerning pricing the property effectively. She developed and executed a strong marketing plan for the property and marshaled the many resources of Washington Fine Properties to present the house in its best light. Susan was able to quickly find the right buyer, and she worked impressively — with grace and confidence — with both sides throughout the negotiations. And, most importantly, Susan helped us get the price we wanted! I would recommend Susan and WFP enthusiastically and am grateful for the work she and her WFP team did for my family.
I recently sold my house with the help of Susan Koehler from Washington Fine Properties. I could not have wished for a more friendly, experienced, helpful and understanding agent during this somewhat stressful process. She handled any hiccups that came up speedily and efficiently, and was always available with advice and helpful recommendations on how to proceed. Thank you, Susan!!
Susan Koehler proved to be the best choice I could have made in selecting an agent. Susan was with me throughout the process, held my hand, and answered my questions. Susan, you were invaluable in assisting me in selecting my new apartment. You were always there to take me to see the properties and in the end helped me to obtain the rental of my first choice! You used your PR skills to convince the owner that I was the best choice for her among the potential tenants vying for the same unit. And in the end, Susan, you became a good friend — which is the best part of it all. I would not hesitate to recommend WFP to anyone who asked or to name Susan.
It’s obvious that Susan Koehler has been selling homes for so many years, her style is simply remarkable. Not only does she know the market, she gets to know her client and helps make the perfect decision. In addition to her professionalism, she is a beautiful person inside and out. We couldn’t have asked for a better agent, a more stunning home and unexpected personal touches from Susan that made this buying experience exceptional.
