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.
