"Suzanne has been immensely helpful in our home-finding process--patiently walking us through each step of the search. She was very flexible, able to accommodate our busy schedules, providing virtual visits while the COVID pandemic initially hit and offering her valuable opinions and insights, given her background in architecture. Suzanne loves what she does as a realtor--she walked us through numerous options, suggested what could be possible to meet our needs in each particular house, and what we would need to do to make those changes happen. She also patiently guided through the process of making an offer, helping us make informed decisions and going out of her way to helping us. We highly recommend her--we hope you enjoy working with her as well! "

"Suzanne provided excellent service throughout the entire home buying process. She provided clear instructions, explanations and had my best interest every step of the way. Suzanne was responsive to all my requests for information and dealt with issues as they arose almost immediately! I was purchasing an older home and her knowledge of this market was impressive and helpful in making decisions. Most important to me was that Suzanne was professional, knowledgeable, supportive, friendly and excited about my major life investment. I would absolutely consider Suzanne again either as a buyer or seller. "
"Suzanne is the best in the business. Suzanne helped us sell our townhouse and purchase our single home during the start of the pandemic. She is extremely organized in helping navigate through scheduling inspections, contractors and other services that were way above and beyond. She is the most thorough Realtor I’ve seen. When our buyer fell through due to COVID the night before closing, she was able to give sound advice, help us complete our purchase transaction, and re-list our departure home quickly. We got multiple offers at the original asking price within weeks. I will also add that the Compass experience all together - from the marketing strategy to the app to Concierge - is second to none. "

"We LOVED working with Suzanne and are so grateful to her for helping us to get the perfect home for our . We hope we will be in it for a long time, but if it ever comes time to sell we would definitely use her again. Suzanne responded to all of our questions and concerns promptly and went above and beyond on multiple occasions as we conducted our search from afar due to the pandemic. She was patient, resourceful and an advocate for us. Highly recommend. "

"My daughter moved out of state on short notice for her dream job, without time to deal with selling her small mid-century modern house. She was dreading the idea of dealing with a real estate agent by phone instead of face-to-face. She also knew that her house would be very difficult to sell without a lot of interior improvements prior to listing, and she did not know how to get that work done when she was living 200 miles away. And worst of all, the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting quarantine and business shutdowns arrived just as she was ready to face the daunting task of selling her house. Selecting the right listing agent for the house turned out to be very easy. Suzanne Parmet is widely known in the real estate community for her special affinity for MCM houses and MCM style. She also had in-depth knowledge of MCM houses in my daughter's immediate neighborhood and had represented a number of sellers and buyers of MCM houses in that neighborhood. Suzanne also was a great fit for selling this house because her concierge services included acting as the project manager for the renovations that had to be done before the house could be listed. I am writing this review because I worked closely with Suzanne during the renovation process and saw what a difference she made. She was at the house almost every day as she dealt with contractors, recommended solutions when snags arose, and kept the project on track for timely completion of the work... In addition to her project management skills, Suzanne had an even greater impact on the success of the renovations through her eye for style and architectural detail. She recommended opening walls between rooms to add light and improve sight lines and flow between primary living spaces, and she even provided architectural drawings for the contractor to carry out those structural changes. She redesigned the layout of the kitchen cabinets and appliances for increased storage and workspace for the cook, and to add new breakfast bar seating. Her recommendations for... fixtures and finishes transformed a small, dark, cramped kitchen into a bright, sleek, and open modern kitchen... And she topped everything off with stylish MCM staging that made the entire house look like something from a home design show. Finally, I appreciate Suzanne's professionalism and respect for my daughter as the key person in the sale of this house.... Suzanne's discussions with my daughter about pricing the house, marketing strategy, and selection of the best offer among multiple offers received were all confidential between Suzanne and my daughter. The success of selling this house through Suzanne Parmet is best illustrated by the fact that the house had 75 showings and sold during the pandemic quarantine period in five days with 14 offers and for [significantly more than the] listing price..., and [quite significantly] ... more than the price we expected it to sell for if no renovations were made. "
"Suzanne went above and beyond in helping us sell a mid-century modern home. She assisted with all facets including improvements, budgeting, decor, marketing, and negotiating the final offer. Highly recommend! She is very conscientious, skilled at real estate transactions, and pleasant. "
