Painted, Staged, and Professionally Cleaned
I highly recommend Suzanne Powers Realty: Suzanne, Gretchen and Eric are an outstanding team. After a lengthy, costly and blundered up three-month process with a major competitor, I relisted my house in Shorewood with Suzanne. They are on point using modern marketing techniques that include social media and Zillow and understand the changing expectations in the current market. The house was staged well and very fast. Suzanne also has a great network of supporting roles (painters, snow cleaners, etc.), so that you do not have to waste your time trying to stage your own house. Suzanne and her team have a great understanding of the underlying real estate market and how to market your home in an optimal way. Suzanne and her team focused on my needs and time line and got fast results. I wish I would have not wasted three months with their competitor.

I listed my home on the East Side of Milwaukee with Suzanne Powers and had an amazing experience. The services offered to me to sell my home were unbelievable. Some of the services offered were landscapers, painters, whole house cleaners, and her home stylist Kathie, who made my home look like a designer showroom. I could not have sold my home without Suzanne's marketing expertise and her well-oiled systems that were seamless behind the scenes. I highly recommend Suzanne Powers of Suzanne Powers Realty Group to any seller or buyer.

After speaking to many realtors, only Suzanne Powers Realty provided staging, scheduled appointments with contractors to do the work needed to get my home ready , and took control so we did not have to deal with the stress of finding getting our home ready for the first open house.
Everyone on her team was available to us. Not only answering our numerous questions, but also was very reassuring that everything was ok, on time and helped to relieve the stress of selling a home. We sold in 3 weeks!
Since moving, we have told many of new neighbors how our home sold. They were all surprised that the realty company provide so many services. They said it was the first time they heard of the realtor doing all the work.
This is what Suzanne and her team do. True partners .

Quick and Easy Solutions
I had a great experience with Suzanne. I was previously listed, I knew I had some big furniture pieces that I needed to clear out and Suzanne offered me a solution. Cathy's help in staging the house made all the difference. The house looks totally new, modern, and it sold within a short period of time. I was very happy!

I felt pampered and taken care of
As for the home selling experience itself, I've never been to a spa, but I can imagine that this was what it was like. I felt pampered and taken care of. If you're a business owner and/or busy person, imagine the feeling of leaving a difficult problem that lots of people could easily screw up with, that you're dreading delegating or even dealing with, and leaving it to a team of competent people who not only know their stuff, but also understand human psychology, the importance of frequent communication, regular updates, timelines that are laid out and then actually adhered to. It was unbelievable. This process was smoother than my wildest expectations. In fact, I can't remember anything with this order of magnitude of complexity having gone this smoothly in my entire life. I don't know whether Suzanne had a soft spot for me or whether she treats all her clients this way, but she would constantly personally attend to my phone calls and emails. Gretchen was great too, but the crown jewel was Suzanne. My house wasn't even that expensive, so it wasn't a money thing. She routinely deals with houses that cost 3x+ more than mine, yet she was so nice to me and personally attended to me. At one point in time, when I was freaking out about something, she said in her no-B.S. style that I love: "Your $X house isn't going to make or break me," and I started laughing and she calmed right down.
After meeting with two other real estate agencies and both of them suggesting we sell our home at a price where we would end up losing a lot of money we called Suzanne and Gretchen. They suggested a price 20 thousand dollars higher than the other realtors. We were impressed with their knowledge of the neighborhood and all their past sales we hired them on the spot. Our house was on the market for one weekend and we had a full priced offer! We were thrilled with the offer and how quickly the house sold. Suzanne and Gretchen have been so incredibly accommodating to all our unique needs and have gone above and beyond in my eyes with helping get professionals to do necessary repairs and making sure we were comfortable in every step of the process. We are so grateful for all their hard work and would highly recommend them to everybody!

How it Works
1. Listing Interview
You and your Powers agent work together to decide which services will increase your home’s value the most and discuss a budget for the improvements. We will prepare your paperwork, order signage for the property and do an initial walk-through to determine the home's staging needs.
2. Consultation and Contractor Coordination
Our Styling Team determines what stays and goes. Includes discussion on paint colors, furnishings, storage, junk removal, and organizational systems. Once the plan is agreed upon your agent will be by your side as you engage vendors and commission work.
3. Home Staging
Once the home has been decluttered and painted with fresh paint colors, we begin using the home's existing furniture and moving new furniture into the home to style the interior environment. When transformation is complete, your home will go on the market.
4. Photos & Videos
Once the home's interior has been styled, we photograph and video tape the home to attract as many buyers as possible. Gorgeous HD Photos and Video will enhance your opportunity to attract the most buyers.
Everything leads up to this. The day we've all been waiting for! We launch your home to prospective buyers, showing it off for maximum advantage.
