As the founding member of Compass Westport, SVP’s approach is dramatically different from others in the field. Through Susan’s passion for remodeling homes, she found a love of real estate. Along with her team of licensed real estate strategists and analysts, she enjoys helping both property owners and prospective buyers navigate today’s market and maximize their opportunity.
Her abundant experience gained in completing transactions that involve the efforts of architects, builders, inspectors, appraisers, colleagues, and town departments affords her a wisdom she shares with her clients.
When representing a luxury home for sale she uses her expertise to best position the property in front of the widest possible qualified audience. She helps the homeowner prepare the property to appeal to today’s buyers’ mindset. She offers an exclusive program with Compass that uses a concierge service to pay up front costs in order to best position and prepare a home with the expectation to achieve the highest price the market will bear. SVP, with Compass, truly invests in the homes represented.
A Revolutionary Open Home Collaborative Concept
Always implementing Compass’ eight core principles powerfully shared by CEO Robert Reffkin in No One Succeeds Alone, SVP collaborates without ego. Reffkin’s principles were recently exemplified for an invitation only event at a spectacular Gold Coast multi-generational riverfront estate.
To be certain this multi generational estate was appropriately experienced, Susan partnered with Black Horse Automotive Services, a luxury classic and vintage car restoration company, for an open home experience where guests were invited to lounge at the pool, play tennis on the courts, enjoy the one hundred and forty feet of river front wonders, while Black Horse shared several exceptional vehicles to be admired by all.
Guests included Compass’s Chief Evangelist, Leonard Steinberg, President of Compass Tri-State, Rory Golod, Connecticut’s Senior Managing Director, Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan and agents and managers coming from Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan, Westport, Litchfield County CT and Palm Springs, CA. All experienced the enchanting property including the main house, guest house, river house, pool, and tennis courts and were each given private tours of the exceptional grounds offering a true open home experience. A delectable parting gift was provided by BE Chocolat of Fairfield. SVP understands how to present a home by engaging the right audience experientially.
In Her Own Words
“Whether we are working with first-time buyers or indulging the connoisseurs of life, whether we are marketing a townhouse or an estate on the gold coast, the same time, care, attention and expertise goes into the process. We love what we do, and it shows.” ☐
