SUZY IS AN EXTRAORDINARY PROFESSIONAL.
"
Wonderful experience with Suzy during the normal stressful activities of selling a house. She is an extraordinary professional, knows every aspect of the marketplace and every small detail to ensure a successful house sale. I had 4 offers within 48 hours of the open house and sold for over the asking price. I would advise anyone in the realty market to partner with Suzy for either the house purchase or sale. Made the experience as positive as could be. Total professional and a lovely warm individual." - LINDA D

★★★★★
SHE IS ALWAYS ON TOP OF THE PROCESS.

Suzy is awesome – she helped my family get our dream house! She was always on top of the process, super responsive and always had a ‘magical’ way of getting things done. She is relentless and will give you the right advice – she also understood our needs very well! Her personal touch to things and knowledge of the local community is super helpful!" - STUTI K

★★★★★
A REPEAT SUCCESS.
"
For the past several years I have worked with Suzy Minken on a good number of home renovations and sales. She is the consummate professional in all aspects of renovation project. From finding the right home, advising in every step of the renovation and once completed in staging, marketing and ultimately selling. Suzy treats my money as if it were her own in that she knows where and when to spend and where and when to save. I trust her judgment completely. I could not recommend her more strongly whether one is buying or selling a home." - OA HOMES

★★★★★
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
"
Suzy Minken is an outstanding professional who always sees the inherent beauty in a home. She has an instinctual understanding of floor plan design, which she combines with her excellent marketing talent when listing a home for sale. I have worked with Suzy on numerous projects for sellers, builders, and buyers and I am always impressed with her wonderful talent to see beyond an existing footprint and envision what is needed to enhance a home’s marketability. Whether a home needs just a few tweaks (e.g. adding a bathroom) or an addition (e.g. creating a family room), Suzy is spot on with her design recommendations and enjoys “rolling up her sleeves” in the creative process. Suzy Minken is that “rare find” and if you are looking to buy or sell (or renovate and flip) a home, I highly recommend her." - TOM BAIO

SUZY'S INTEGRITY WAS OBVIOUS AND INVALUABLE.
"
Suzy listed and sold my house in Chatham NJ. The first time that Suzy saw the house, she saw the potential in the 100 year old Victorian. She outlined a clear plan for the steps necessary in order to get the house ready for sale. She understood that in a market where the typical buyer is cautious and wants a finished product, that she would have to emphasize the unique charms of an older house. She helped coordinate with painters, stagers, landscapers, electricians, plumbers and others in order to completely update and brighten the look of the house. She has great relationships with these workers and was fantastic at focusing on their work in order to get the maximum benefit in the most cost efficient way. I liked the fact that she felt an emotional attachment to the house and emphasized work that brought out its character and improved its value. She was in no way interested in just cosmetic changes that were transparent to cautious buyers. She was a constant presence at the house making sure that the work was done well and in a timely manner. With the house ready to go on the market, Suzy developed a clear sales plan. She was able to communicate a vision for the special attributes of the house. She enlisted an architect to help to describe to potential buyers some renovation options in order to further enhance the value of the house. She priced the house effectively so that we soon were in negotiations with a buyer. She did a great job of keeping the negotiations smooth and moving forward once a price had been agreed to and inspection issues had been resolved. Overall, selling a house, especially an old one in the current market, is a challenging and emotional undertaking. Suzy was eternally upbeat and energetic in working through the process. Her integrity was obvious and invaluable in completing the transaction. She is both supportive and realistic and those are essential qualities in selling any product, but especially a unique one, in a difficult market. I just wish there was an option to give a realtor 6 stars." - JONATHAN W

CARING AND KNOWLEDGEABLE.
"
Suzy was extremely helpful and patient with all my requirements. She researched different places for rent and many she visited before me, to make sure they suited our needs. I am new to the Livingston, Millburn, Morristown, etc. area. Suzy has a wealth of knowledge of Livingston and all the surrounding neighborhoods. It was a pleasure to have met a caring and knowledgeable realtor." - STEPHNEY C

IT WAS GREAT WORKING WITH HER GIVEN HER EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE COMMUNITY.
"
My husband and I had the privilege of working with Suzy to buy our first home. It was great working with her given her extensive knowledge about the community and her responsiveness to all of our questions. She even went above and beyond for us during the offer/bidding process by helping create a letter for the buyer that highlighted why we should have the house. We definitely recommend working with Maggee Miggins Group and look forward to working with them in the future." - BIANCA C

★★★★★
WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND SUZY TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR PROPERTIES WITH LIST IN HAND.
"
We remember the day we decided to make Millburn our home and made a visit to an open house in the area. We met Suzy in the open house for the first time and got comfortable with discussing the must haves in the house we are looking for. Suzy was very much interested in knowing our list in spite of gauging the fact that we did not like the house we entered for an open house. It was a cold day and the day was shorter but much to our surprise Suzy was ready to show us a property that she thought we would like (of course after knowing the must haves we discussed). We killed 2 hours and parked our car outside of the house Suzy wanted to show us. The moment we entered the house, we loved the vibe and tons of natural light in it. It surely was the one we would have considered buying, Suzy definitely paid attention to our list of must haves with a 100% interest in helping us get the right one and calling it a home. To cut the story short; we finally bought the house and we love it. Our kid (4yr old boy) loves it a lot. Suzy helped us make the process very smooth. She was always present to answer questions and work together to get the roadblocks away. We truly enjoyed the experience of buying a new house in the area which was yet to be explored. Would definitely recommend Suzy to anyone who is looking for properties with list in hand and confusion on where to start and how to go about it:). Thank you very much Suzy and Maggee Miggins group to help us in the journey to our home." - SIMARJIT K

About Suzy
An icon Suzy brings a fresh approach to successfully marketing a home for sale and assisting buyers with their home search. She has that creative vision to see the unseen potential in any style of home, whether it’s a Victorian, Colonial, Split- level, etc., and provides design solutions to achieve that vision.

Suzy has a great passion for architectural design and home renovation. When selling your home, Suzy has the necessary expertise to showcase all the elements that tell the story of what makes your home stand out in a crowded market. With over 10 years in real estate, combined with her background in home staging and feng shui design, Suzy understands the importance of a functional interior layout that resonates with the lifestyle of today’s buyers. And for buyers looking to modernize a home as they see on HGTV, Suzy has architects, contractors, and other professionals who she can readily call upon. Sometimes all you need is a “hint” of what can be (e.g. removal of a dining room wall) and a cost estimate to encourage an offer on a house.

Suzy works closely with builders/developers and investors in identifying properties that are ripe for a renovation flip or new construction. For Suzy, recommending design changes to an existing floor plan while retaining a home’s unique architectural features (e.g. a stone fireplace) is equally as exciting as fine-tuning the layout of a luxury new construction home.

Suzy has over a decade of corporate consulting experience. Prior to real estate, Suzy was employed at a major consulting firm in Manhattan where she honed her high level analytical and negotiation skills. Suzy earned her B.S. degree from Cornell University and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the Stern School of Business at New York University. Like many of her clients, Suzy made the move from an urban center out to the suburbs of New Jersey and knows firsthand how challenging relocation can be. Suzy has lived in Westfield for 20 years while raising her two children and now resides in Livingston where she is loving the convenience of townhome living.

Down-to-earth, genuine, and straight-forward, Suzy stays in constant communication with you from day one until closing, and beyond. So whether you are planning to buy or sell in Millburn, Short Hills, Summit, Chatham, Madison, Livingston, Maplewood and Westfield, Suzy has that excellent blend of local town insight, market trend expertise, and extensive experience in all aspects of the real estate process that you can trust.
