Working with Susan Leavitt brought success for my family in securing the home we needed. Susan was recommended by a colleague who worked with her the previous year. Susan’s stellar knowledge of market trends during a challenging time (a pandemic) to secure a house in the tricky, competitive Northern Virginia real estate scene in mid-2020 was a blessing. Our circumstances were not ideal. We were buying a property physically unseen from overseas, and we had reviewed many properties virtually through pictures and WhatsApp tours during more than 6 months of searching. Susan’s advice, some which we resisted at first, proved to be the deciding factors: from choice of lender, to advice on properties, to the timing and details of a winning offer. Susan sometimes had to give us a dose of reality to help us adjust expectations, but when we were ready to go “all in” on a property we coveted, she worked tirelessly to secure the deal. Today, we live in a spectacular home, in a great neighborhood, that meets the criteria we set out when we started our overseas search. I recommend Susan as a patient, competent, and tenacious real estate expert, who will battle for you to get the home you need.
Your experience in finance was a great and unexpected bonus because you used those skills to our advantage throughout the sale. You quickly evaluated and summarized the slaughter of bids, sized up the bidders, and explained the whole process to us in terms we understood immediately. You were proactively ready and always there for Mom and us to answer all of our questions and handle the sale as we wanted.
I couldn’t have been more pleased that you drove to Sunrise to meet Mom (90 years young) and explain the process to her - the only home that she ever knew since she was about 21 and the house her 3 kids were raised in - a very emotional event for all of us. Your genuine support was a big deal. Mom told us that she knew you were the best agent and would work with her kids to make her the most money with the least amount of fixing up effort on our part. And you did that for Mom!
Your experience as a realtor, support for our family during a really difficult time, and nailing a sales contract that was tens of thousands of dollars over our asking price are the reasons you definitely exceeded expectations. I’m happy to recommend you!
Susan is an absolute pleasure to work with! As first time homebuyers we were looking for a realtor that had our best interest at heart and really listened to the list of qualities we wanted in our “dream home.” She made herself available at all times, scheduled showings so quickly, and gave the most honest, constructive feedback as we looked at various homes in DC. Thanks to Susan we are living in a home way beyond our expectations and her ability to work with the selling agent really helped us financially. I cannot stress enough how supportive, determined, and wonderful Susan was to work with! She has excellent partners (home mortgage, home inspectors, home repair contacts) she connected us with to make the stressful process of buying a home much more manageable.
Susan Leavitt is the owner of my apartment space. The listing was very accurate and the point of contact was very responsive. I visited the space before deciding to rent it and everything seemed great. I decided that I wanted to decrease the length of my lease and she was very responsive for this request as well. All in all, good service and I would recommend.
Susan is wonderful! She took the time to get to know me and my husband in order to better understand what we were looking for in a house. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the DMV area and gave us great advice on how to navigate this crazy housing market. We love our new home and can't recommend Susan enough!
Susan is professional, and extremely knowledgeable. She has a wonderful, caring personality and provided us with excellent advice. We are glad we had her assistance during the purchase of our first home.

She is tenacious in finding the one cherry in the market full of prunes, and negotiating the best terms and most options at the lowest price.
