We had an excellent experience with Elaine and Susie. Their professionalism, integrity, work ethic and focus on a successful outcome were just what our “team” needed to get the result that we were looking for. Elaine and Susie consistently brought quality customers to our showings. The way that they got to know our home and then presented it to buyers, both digitally and in person, set the tone for a very positive process.

I searched for a new home for three years with my wife, and dealt with several real estate brokers along the way. Susie was the best, not just because she found me my house, but because she knew exactly what I wanted and more importantly because she knew what I didn't want. I would send her listings and she would tell me why I wouldn't like it, and she was always right. She really understands her clients, is brutally honest, and is extremely efficient. A class above her peers.

Elaine is the most professional, effective, and reliable person I've worked with in any real estate market. Yes, the process can be annoying at times which is why Elaine was so helpful for my family. She knows the market and isn't afraid to weigh-in to let you know you can do better on price or maybe waiting is better. She saw more issues with the house we bought than the inspector and ultimately saved us tons of cash. Always just a call away, I can't imagine going through the process without her. We owe her!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Elaine Pruzon. So terrific was the interaction I felt compelled to drop you a note to tell you what a valuable asset I believe that you have. Elaine came to the game a little late, as I was moments away from signing an exclusive with another broker. But she impressed me with her professionalism and acumen. She has a great flair for knowing when to be aggressive and when to lay back. She brought in the buyer but represented me very fairly. I am rarely compelled to pen letters but in this case, I was truly impressed. You have a real treasure!

Elaine is amazing - one of the best realtors I have met, hands down. Elaine provides a level of service you will rarely find from anyone in any service industry - professional, knowledgeable, puts your interest in front of her own. She will work relentlessly to put you in the home of your dreams (and steer you away from the wrong one), even working weekends and vacations to get you there. Her knowledge of the market and negotiation skills are second to none.

Our experience working with Susie was seamless from start to finish! She truly took us under her wing and provided us with honesty, attention, responsiveness, guidance, professionalism, and support throughout the process. When it comes to the housing market, Susie seems to always be “in-the-know” and helped us to balance our wish list with our budget. Susie’s wealth of knowledge extended to every aspect of the house buying process, whether it be questions related to homes, contractors, mortgage brokers, inspectors, babysitters, etc. You name it - she was always there to help, and continues to as we are now settling into our new house/town. We would highly recommend Susie to anyone looking to move to the area.

We found Susie and Elaine to be highly attentive when selling our home, almost as if we were their only clients, although we know that was not the case. They returned all phone calls and texts the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. They are also highly personable with engaging personalities. They were honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our house to attract buyers quickly, and their advice worked like a charm. I highly recommend Susie and Elaine if you are looking to buy or sell a home!

We worked with Susie & Elaine to sell our home in Short Hills 9 years ago. They got us above the asking price in record time. We recently relocated back to the area and bought a home in Livingston, NJ. They helped guide us through the entire process from house hunting to purchasing and closing in the middle of the pandemic. They are extremely knowledgeable and professional, and I couldn't recommend them enough.
