"There are always concerns and new questions when a homeowner decides to sell a home, especially a very appealing and much loved home. In the late spring of 2021, I made this decision and, reminded of the horrors of selling and moving in years past, was concerned as I selected a realtor. Not only was Susan Calahan helpful, but the best informed and caring agent I have worked with. Susan has a natural and kind manner of taking over the momentous decision to sell a home, and does so with great energy. I found her knowledge and preparation for documents and sales procedures excellent, and always reassuring to me. The sale of my home was a very pleasant and satisfying experience, and I always found Susan Calahan to be fully vested in my interest and satisfactory sale of my home." -Mary Jo S.
After making the challenging decision to relocate from Atlanta to my home state of North Carolina, I was faced with the task of selling my “forever home”. Despite all the emotions tied with this choice, Susan was the seamless transition to what seemed impossible. With Susan’s gracious willingness and timely effort, I had multiple offers within the first week listed "for sale”. Susan’s ease and compassion, coupled with her knowledge and drive, was truly what put everything into motion for making a daunting task evolve into a wonderfu, fresh beginning. Endless accolades to Susan for a job well done!
We have worked with Susan for over 20 years and she helped guide us through the purchase and sale of 3 homes in the Atlanta area.
