Thank you for taking a moment to read my profile.
One of the most important aspects of selecting your Realtor@ is their availability. My dedication to be the best Real Estate Agent is a choice I make every day, because I understand you are the most important part of making Powers Realty Group successful. I put in the hours required to do this job well…and the bonus for you, is that I care deeply about what I am doing to enhance your buying and selling experience.
I list homes. I sell homes. I have a Director of Operations who is exceptionally skilled at managing the company. I love systems management, so Powers has implemented a team of highly skilled licensed coordinators who manage all the administrative duties, so I can be with the customer listing and selling property.
You won’t find another Realtor@ like me. I had the chops to open up my own company from the ground up based on grit and determination to give buyers and sellers something better than what was already being offered in Milwaukee Real Estate. I run a successful Boutique Firm with the help of some of the most skilled managers and agents in the industry. It has taken years to cultivate the right people and systems to produce this winning team inside Powers Realty Group. The success is in the numbers, and there is no denying how successful we are.
For me personally, I began my real estate career in 2003 after a short 3 year stop out from my corporate career as a medical device manager. I found my Fortune 50 background was uniquely tailored for corporate relocation, physician relocation, and high net worth clients. My first real estate sale was in 2003. I sold my wonderful neighbor’s home for $650,000 in a day, and that was the beginning of something very special for me and Milwaukee Real Estate. Today, I am leading Wisconsin in individual sales production and sharing my talents with aspiring Realtors@.
I love what I do. That is important. It is the care I give that is at the center of my satisfaction in my work. I am at the top of the industry in the country because of my dedication. Happy and grateful people do better. It is that simple. I recognize your satisfaction in my performance is at the core of my success and happiness. I am grateful for every customer that chooses me and Powers Realty Group. It’s a good thing!
"Actions speak louder than words, and the Powers Group delivered."
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Suzanne, Gretchen, and the rest of the team at Powers Realty Group. At our initial meeting, my wife and I were told that our needs, concerns, and interests would be met and that the team would do everything in their power to make our experience a positive one. Actions speak louder than words, and the Powers Group delivered. We greatly appreciated Suzanne's frank and honest demeanor; she never steered us wrong. At the same time, Gretchen was incredibly patient as we looked at house after house and always made us feel as if we were her only clients. If we ever find ourselves in the market again, we will be contacting Powers Realty Group!

"Suzanne has an intuitive understanding of what makes buyers and sellers tick!"
The team at Powers Realty Group was professional and proactive during the sale of our residence. In our very first meeting with Suzanne she came prepared with specific and informative data that helped us understand the market. It wasn't just a bunch of realtor credentials stuff (which she had just in case but we already knew from our research). Suzanne has an intuitive understanding of what makes buyers and sellers tick! Ultimately, her advice on selling price and timing was spot on. The PRG team (Gretchen, Erick, et al) was well orchestrated from staging the house to open homes to closing details. I'm happy to recommend Powers Realty Group.

"On the purchasing side, I've never seen an agent so detail oriented"
Working with Suzanne and her team has been a great experience. From the administrative transactional stuff to the negotiations and all things in between, Suzanne and her team clearly demonstrate a commitment to top-notch service delivery and to a positive outcome in the home selling and purchasing process. Suzanne helped me sell a property with unique attributes and was fully engaged despite some of the challenges that popped up. She had a rock solid strategy and was outstanding at adjusting to market conditions ensuring we maximized the likelihood of a sale. On the purchasing side, I've never seen an agent so detail oriented and aware of her buyers and finding the property that fits them best. She does an outstanding job listening and learning about her clients to ensure she is setting them up for a successful future in a new home. Suzanne and her Team are laser focused on retaining their clients and believe in the long term relationship. It is clear that success to the Powers Team is not about closing deals, but instead ensuring clients are happy in their homes. Certainly, after my experience, I will be undoubtedly be calling her office next time I want to sell and/or buy a new house!

"After interviewing the top realtors in Mequon, we chose Suzanne Powers and her team as our listing agent."
Here is why: after hearing the canned promises from the other realtors, Suzanne and her team took a different approach. They focused on selling and marketing your property in a professional manner, following a sales map for a successful sale of your property.
Here is how they did it and [are] different from other realtors:
First, they staged our home, giving it a new fresh look.
After they staged our home they took high-quality professional photos to incorporate into their website and marketing materials to make our home stand out from our competition.
The main difference was at every showing someone from Suzanne’s team was present to show our home to prospective buyers and buyer’s agents. No other agency would provide such high level of service.
They provided fantastic feedback to us from every showing and we had a whopping 65 showings of our home. I can’t say enough about their high level of communication.
We had a smooth close and I want to thank Suzanne, Gretchen and their team for all of their hard work.
In a nutshell, why choose Suzanne Powers Realty group? Because they are a selling machine that will produce results!

"...thank you for all the help you gave us with the sale of our ranch duplex!"
Your strategic thinking and energetic marketing were instrumental to the success of our transaction!
We can’t say enough about the professional excellence of your team members. Their prompt follow up and customer focus are superb!
We will be glad to refer any of our friends to your organization if they are in the real estate market as buyers or sellers!

"I felt like these expert guides had led me up and down Mt. Everest, we had bonded a lot along the journey"
I was freaked out about the prospect of having to sell our house: we had been out of it for nearly three years, we were living on the other side of the country, and the house was being rented out. I had spoken to Suzanne a couple of times during the years about unrelated stuff and it struck me how much time she had been willing to spend with me on the phone even though she knew she wouldn't be getting anything out of me. I've probably spoken to her for hours and it's weird that I've never actually met her in person.
Powers Realty Group are underdogs and as a business owner myself, I have a soft spot for underdogs, especially when they fiercely try to prove themselves and give you a superior experience to the established brands. This is exactly what I got from them. I was skeptical about certain things, some of the reviews, etc. and she took the time to explain those and gain my trust. I almost feel a twinge of sadness that I have no valid reason to interact with her anymore.
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 and Erick were 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.
Like I said, I'm going to miss those interactions. Meaningful personal interactions are more important to me than material stuff. It may sound hard to believe, but I was a tiny bit bummed when the closing was complete and I got the "Thank you / We're done!" email. I felt like these expert guides had led me up and down Mt. Everest, we had bonded a lot along the journey, and now we were parting ways.

"Ever since day one, our experience with you and your associates has been impeccable."
What can I say? Ever since day one, our experience with you and your associates has been impeccable. Our interactions with you and Gretchen were always professional, and we always felt heard and understood. Thank you for that. Thank you for everything. You have helped us take an amazing step in our lives, and we are so grateful.

"Thank you so much for your wise advice"
Gretchen and Suzanne:
Thank you so much for your wise advice, prompt project management, and the quick sale of our home. You exceeded my expectations. I knew you would gladly help us buy a home and would gladly sell ours, but I did not expect the high level of project management you provided both with the defects on the Glendale house but also with the special items the buyer wanted at the Bay Ridge house. You reduced the stress of this process tremendously. Thank you very much!!!

"We have been nothing but pleased with the whole group"
We have been nothing but pleased with the whole group; they've made the transition to a new area pleasant and helpful as well as helping us find our home. Now that the purchase is completed, they still offer any help. Highly recommend this Realty Group.
