    Highly likely to recommend: Five Stars Written about Susan Konzelmann on 11/04/2016 Showed home in 2016 in Ridgewood, NJ. Local knowledge: Five Star Process expertise: Five Star Responsiveness: Five Star Negotiation skills: Five Star The Konzelmann team is amazing! I've been working with the husband and wife duo for the past year to find out dream house and these two are exceptional. They are incredibly personable and knowledgeable and have an answer to every question. They do research on every home we've looked at and sill us in before we even see the homes, I feel truly that they are looking for the right house that will be the perfect fit for myself and my family and don't waste my time with houses that they know we wouldn't be interested in. We haven't found our home yet but I know it is only a matter of time before we do and I'm thankful we have the Konzelmanns on our side when the time is right.

    Highly likely to recommend: Five Stars 01/01/2018 - ischaplowsky Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Little Falls, NJ. Local knowledge: Five Star Process expertise: Five Star Responsiveness: Five Star Negotiation skills: Five Star My mother previously worked with Susan and Jim Konzelmann over 12 years ago when they simultaneously listed my mother's old house and negotiated the purchase of her current house. As a former contractor, Jim counseled my mother on several home-improvement projects which both added value and beauty, transforming the house into a cherished retirement retreat. After my mother's sudden passing earlier this past spring, I reached out to Susan and Jim for help with selling my mother's house. For me, as someone without any real estate knowledge who was dealing with the loss of a parent, what could have become a very onerous and taxing experience actually turned out to be manageable and even educational. They were a comforting, expert and patient guide throughout the sale and when numerous surprise remediation issues came up, they were incredibly responsive with skilled, considerate and dependable contractor referrals. In fact, each and every project was completed to my satisfaction both within budget and timeframe (extremely unusual I am told). Susan and her husband Jim have worked together for many years and the two make a very efficient and formidable duo, who keep the ball rolling and the laughs going (a welcome relief during some tough times). Working the Konzelmanns is truly a family affair because their son Keith runs a successful handyman business (Konzelmann Handyman, LLC) and, lucky for me, he was available on numerous occasions to save the day with impeccable workmanship when the inevitable emergencies came up. Now that the house has sold and I look back on the entire experience, I can wholeheartedly recommend Susan, Jim and Keith and honestly say that I made some good friends in the Konzelmanns. Thank you guys
    Highly likely to recommend: Five Stars 01/12/2018 - jayclarken Sold a Condo home in 2017 in Clifton, NJ. Local knowledge: Five Star Process expertise: Five Star Responsiveness: Five Star Negotiation skills: Five Star We initially began the sale of our home in 2015 with another agent and eventually took the house off the market due to dissatisfaction with that agent and the marketplace. After sitting still for a year ,while considering our options,we met with Susan and decided to place our home back on the market. Once listed it was not long before we had a solid offer. Having Susan and her husband Jim working with us made the entire process far less stressful than what we had previously encountered.Most importantly, they were always available either personally or by phone,text or email for assistance with questions or simply for reassurances. We also used the Konzelmanns for the purchase of a new home and that too went smoothly with both closings taking place within a day of one another. We highly recommend Susan and Jim
