We can't begin to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for Phil and his entire professional and support staff at Greater Coastal Realty. Phil went above and beyond to help us with the selling of our home, and the purchase of our new home. Both processes went smoothly and were stress-free, which was a gift in and of itself. We would highly recommend Phil and the entire staff at Greater Coastal Realty. You couldn't put yourself in better hands for all your realty needs. ~Erin, Fred, & Grayson Reynolds
I have been meaning to write to you for a couple of months now, please forgive my delay. I have finally settled in to my new location and couldn't be happier! I just want to take a few minutes of your time to really thank you for all you did for me. As you know I first started out on Mill Creek Rd, in the same building as your office is located. As a new business owner I had no idea what to expect. You explained the process and showed me multipe locations to view, until I made me decision to lease unit G-2. As my business grew there, I knew I wanted more for my business than what this location had to offer so when I saw a location on Rt. 9 open up, you were there once again to help me sort through all the details. You helped me negotiate a deal that I still can not believe I made. My new motto is "you never know if the answer will be yes, unless you ask the questions." As you may recall during the last month of my old lease, you negotiated that I was able to access the new location in order to make a smooth transition. We had some extremely cold weather and had about a foot of snow on the ground when I decided to go to the new office and get some painting done. Upon entering the building I realized a pipe had broken and I was in full panic mode! I was panicked because I had not yet started my official first month lease yet and failed to secure the landlords contact information. I called you. I had not known at the time that my new landlord was out of the country visiting family nor did I know that you too were also away on vacation. Not only did you answer my call, you went above and beyond to contact my landlord to be able to handle the situation as quickly as possible. Who does that? not many people these days, but you did and I am so grateful! If you had waited until your vacation was over to return my call the situation could have been a nightmare for only myself but the landlord as well. You really did everything you could and I greatly appreciate it. Please let this be my testimony to any protective clients that you truly are an asset! From viewing properties, to negotiating a deal, to the unexpected! Thank you again for everything.
"Sue is an awesome realtor! We were lucky to stumble upon her and we couldn’t have been happier. We started with another realtor who took us to view some properties and never submitted an offer we made. She took the bull by the horns and actually submitted the offer for us and helped us to continue looking until we found the perfect vacation shore home! Sue helped with every aspect and solved any hiccups that arose. We love her and feel blessed to have met her and highly recommend her. Thanks Sue!"
I would like to acknowledge the great services you performed in the sale of my property on Mill Creek Rd. From the presentation of the offer to the buyer, to the signing of the contract, to the completion of the sale, your assistance and professionalism were a valuable asset. Your ability in sorting through issues of inspections and permits made it possible to achieve the goal in a timely way. A job well done!
Sold in two weeks! Thanks for being there for my every step of the way. I appreciate all you did for me to make this sale so easy. Special thanks to Deja for all her help.
Susan has been a wonderful agent in many ways. She has been so patient as we evolved into an understanding of what we really wanted. The lure of the water was overwhelming at first and our efforts were concentrated that way. We have owned several homes and we are retiring. This home had to have features that included being a magnet for our 7 grandchildren, had to have a minimal amount of maintenance, had to have a price which allowed a worry free retirement. It had to be small enough not to be overwhelming and big enough to accommodate summer company and holiday dinners. It is all of the above and is a combination of a home at the shore, a truly wonderful suburban while 2 blocks from a lovely lake. The search was not easy, but Susan was there every step of the way. She would offer opinion only in the most gracious and welcome way. We consider her a friend now more than an agent. Above 5 STAR recommendations are absolutely not in any way inflated
Since we first met Sue, about 3 years ago, we have come to rely on her for her knowledge of the properties she lists and the area in general. She has helped us and other members of our family in renting homes for the past few summers. She has a good relationship with the owners of the properties, and if our relationship with her as renters is any indication of her ability to service her customers - then she has a large following. Sue has always made us comfortable in her office and while driving us about looking at homes. She is personable and always pleasant. We definitely look forward to our visit with her to look at rental properties.
Worked relentlessly to negotiate the best price and defeat the competition. Knowledgable and reliable! Made transaction smooth Follow was excellent professional and respectfully at all times
Susan is so friendly that you feel immediately as though you have known each other forever! She will show you properties geared toward your needs and budget. She is honest about the properties she shows. Susan worked hard on our behalf from the moment we made our offer and right through the closing. She answered many questions and concerns regarding the purchase with patience and sincerity.
Susan is a wonderful person! She is very knowledgeable of the area, what the towns and neighborhood are like. She listens to what you want when you're looking to buy a home and she helps you find it, no matter how long it takes. She gives you straight, honest answers and opinions.
Susan was absolutely wonderful when my husband and I were looking to buy a house. She was extremely accommodating in working around our crazy work schedules. Susan knows the area and new exactly what we were looking for. In the long run found the perfect house for us.
GCR and I went looking for a house in feb 2014 I would look on the web call GCR and talk to Susan she would get me the info I would look it over tell Susan ok ill come up from FL. well it took until June for me to get a house thanks to all the hard work GCR and Susan Racioppi THANK YOU P.S they can sell them too
Susan went above and beyond to help our family find qualified and exceptional tenants. At the same time, we went under contract with her on a short sale which required a lot of managing and attention. Finally, when another, more appealing house became available, Susan shifted gears and helped us withdraw from the previous offer that we put on a home that she had listed, and we went under contract with a home that was not listed by her. Susan was always easy to get in contact with, and kept us routinely updated throughout the process. The service she provided us was outstanding, and we were impressed. Susan always prioritized our needs ahead of all other considerations, and I would do business with her again, as well as recommend her to others whether buying, selling, or renting.
I felt she was very knowledgeable about the seller's market at Beach Haven West. Her ability to empathize the loss of my shore property due to the horrific damage of hurricane "Sandy" was the main reason, I chose to deal with her as my selling agent. Throughout, seven months of dealing with me and my 2 sisters, Susan showed excellent negotiating skills and still maintained a high professional conduct. Her persistent professionalism in her job and a "I will not give up till sold" attitude is what I truly admire about her. And yes, I would recommend her to other shore sellers!
Dear Phil & Susan, We want to take this opportunity to thank you both for your exemplary work in selling our house. You kept us informed in every step of the process each time we called you, you were always there to answer our questions. As you probably know, selling a house can be very stressful and you made it easy for us. We want you to know we would highly recommend you and your company to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We have sold 4 other homes in our lifetime and your company exceeded our expectations. Thank you again for everything and we wish you continue success as you meet the needs of people in the area, they are lucky to have you both. Take care and hope to see you soon
Dear Philip Savarese: My husband and I have reconnected with your office after a year. There are so many realtors listing shore homes on the Internet, but we have actually tried to find ones listed by Great Coastal Realty. We feel a strong allegiance to your office since we came very close to purchasing a home a little more than a year ago. The first person we saw and spoke to upon walking in was Judy. Kudos to you for having the foresight to have her make a first impression on your potential clients. We were very nervous about purchasing a vacation home. This is a major life changer for anyone. Judy made us feel like we were guests in her home. She spoke so knowledgeable and alleviated all our fears. Then she placed us in Susan's capable hands. Although things didn't work out positively for us in January of 2016, we came back to Greater Coastal Realty. How could we not? For the year plus, every now and then I would get a humorous email from Judy. She just asked how we were and said she was thinking of us. It was that connection that led us back to your office. We are anxiously awaiting on an answer to a home we are currently bidding on. Either way, we will continue to do business with these two ladies whom we have come to know and trust with one of the biggest decisions of our lives. Thank you!
Dear Mr. Savarese, I am writing you today regarding one of your realtors, Ruben Nazario. We listed our home with him November 2015 and we just had the closing December 16, 2015. Ruben has always been very professional and open to all our questions and comments. He truly listened to all our needs. It was a pleasure working with a very knowledgeable young man. We felt that it was important for you to know.
Sue was very helpful in selling my property. She understood the market as well as our financial needs. I was happy to work with her and would use her again to sell or to buy in beach haven west.
Susan is the "professional's professional". She navigated some very complex/nerve wracking situations in a calm, yet convincing manner. Her ability to deal professionally with challenging clients cannot be understated. Her knowledge/experience with local officials/ever changing rules (after Hurricane Sandy) proved invaluable to the successful sale of our property. I highly recommend the use of Susan as your real estate broker.
Susan was a pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the area and was always very quick to respond to our calls. Susan gained our trust and respect by the professional way in which she conducted business. In addition, she was very personable and fun to work with.
We hired Susan to sell my father's house in a vacation area that is still struggling to recover from Hurricane Sandy. Houses in that area can take a year or more to sell. Thanks to Susan's knowledge of the local market and hard work, we sold the house within six months at a price we were pleased with. I would highly recommend Susan to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Manahawkin, NJ area.
