“Susie deVille is a wonderful person and a native of Highlands. Her knowledge and experience really paid off by finding our downtown Highlands home at the right price. As an out-of-town buyer, It was reassuring to know Susie was always negotiating and advocating for our best interests. Further, her quality network of professional contacts was incredibly helpful -- not only for thoroughly checking out the property during Due Diligence, but also after closing when we commenced renovations.”
“After visiting Highlands for more than fifteen years, my wife and I decided to purchase a second home in the area. We have worked with many real estate professionals in the past, but none were more knowledgeable or service-oriented as Susie deVille. Susie has the unique capability to quickly determine the most important purchase criteria and translate that into a solid short list of options. She is extremely well organized resulting in the most efficient use of a client's time when evaluating properties.
In addition, she is a strong client advocate with exceptional negotiation skills. This contributed to a very positive experience from the moment we submitted our first offer through our final closing. It was a genuine pleasure to work with Susie, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to make an investment in the Highlands, NC real estate market.”
“Susie is absolutely extraordinary. She has the local knowledge of a Highlands native and the strategic vision of a multinational CEO. I have worked with her on five different properties and still marvel at her ability to innovate, negotiate, and move projects forward under the most complex and daunting circumstances. She has given me investment advice that over the years has proven correct again and again. And every step of the way we had a blast. Sometimes I wonder if I’m shopping for another house just to “get the team together again!” I can't recommend Susie enough.”
“Business is about relationships and integrity, and they are Susie’s focus. She does everything completely.”
“Anyone entering into a working relationship with Susie has made an excellent decision. Relating to people and their needs are her forte. Above all, her keynote attribute is professionalism.”
In the summer of 2016, my wife, Helene, and I decided that after running our business, the 4 1/2 Street Inn, it was time to consider selling. We have known and respected Susie deVille for a long time, were aware of her accomplishments, and chose her to represent us in the sale of our property.
Susie deVille has a calmness and composure and a distinct understanding of the motions and emotion of buyers and sellers. She successfully guided us through a difficult and emotional process of selling something, a business we had operated and a home we have loved for twenty years. She knew how to market our home, and resources to reach out to for our specific product. She sold our home far quicker than we had ever anticipated and walked us through the sale process. We were truly happy with the way Susie helped us through the whole experience.
With the sale behind us, we needed a new home so naturally we chose Susie, and again, she helped find a house, negotiated for us, and got us a deal that we truly liked. She listened to our needs, was surgical in what she showed us, and exceptionally patient throughout the whole process.
Susie deVille has experience and a knowledge of the business and of the area that would be hard to surpass. She is, and will always be our representative in all issues real estate. We would recommend her to anyone needing real estate services.
“Susie deVille is always a delight to work with! I've never met a more positive, upbeat person who dwells in finding solutions. She was born on this mountain and loves it fiercely. Susie will share her love of place as she makes your dream of owning a piece of this paradise a reality.”
