Suzy Couture
Executive Real Estate Inc.
About Suzy

Hi there and welcome to my Homelight profile! If you are buying or selling, you know how doing so CAN BE ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISIONS YOU WILL EVER MAKE. My goal is simple: to make the process one that is a POSITIVE one for you. One that when you walk away, you'll find yourself in a better place. One where you feel content closing one chapter of your life and beginning another with no regrets. This process can be stressful. I've been there. I've done it. Both personally, and professionally. I've learned. I've systematized, and I've created a team of Specialists in their field ready to help whenever help is needed. This experience is so different for all of my clients – and it's one that I love partnering with people and coaching them through. It's one that with the right person working with you, can sometimes be even described as EXCITING. A bit about me….. I've grown up in the Real Estate business. With my father owning his own framing and General Contracting businesses, I spent much time visiting the job sites and our family Sundays would often consist of going to church, out to eat, and a Sunday drive to visit as many open houses & new subdivisions as possible. My father was passionate about what he did and he EXUDED this. People gravitated to him because of his personable demeanor and sought his advice because of his professional knowledge. I am fortunate to have had these traits passed on. As I got older, I managed advertising budgets and created all our own ads & marketing pieces for the Open Houses. I held these Open Houses at all of our developments and diligently followed up on potential clients. I SOLD. I followed up with our clients and was their liaison throughout the building process. I became their confidant. Out of college, my role increased taking on all aspects of Office Management while still making Marketing & Sales my number 1 focus. My father passed in 2000. I love him and miss him dearly and today, I work closely with my brother Peter and the business is still thriving. Our philosophy is "build it as if it were our own". As a Realtor, my marketing and construction back ground compliments the experience I give my clients. For a Buyer, my construction up bringing can be seen as an extra pair of eyes looking out for your benefit. From a Seller's standpoint, I have a team of professionals to help you to prep your house to make the "THE" house someone is going to want to own. My business philosophy….. As a successful business person, I have learned to prioritize, systemize, and spend my time and efforts where it makes the most sense. For my clients, this means that I am efficient and will use all of the marketing tools that Executive offers to promote your home on the top listing services available, use proven marketing strategies and social media sites to market your home to its fullest exposure. I work hard, but love what I do so much that it just doesn't seem like work! With my years of experience in the Real Estate industry, I have been able to put together a team to help my clients successfully prep and sell their home. I am able to offer my clients everything from a recommendation to a well respected Home Improvement Contractor, a General Contractor (if ever you were looking to build or to purchase a property in need of a rehab with a 203K), Lenders, Home Inspectors, Professional Stagers, Professional Photographer, and a Home Cleaner. Home Staging is proven to sell homes faster and at a better price and professional photography is critical to showcase your home on the Internet - the first place buyers look for a new home. As part of my comprehensive listing service, these conveniences are all available to you! Are you ready? Enough about me for now, WHAT ABOUT YOU? What can I do to help you get started? Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you may have. If you check out my listings and are interested in obtaining first-hand knowledge about any of them, please reach out directly! I always do my best to return phone calls, emails, and texts at my earliest convenience. If you are interested in receiving emails tailored to your Real Estate needs, let me know and you will have the convenience at shopping for a new home in the comforts of yours. Once you see something you like, let me know and I'll set up a private showing for you. What are you waiting for? Remember? This can be EXCITING if you partner up with the right person.

Daniel Merrigan
Merrigan & Lefebvre Realty
About Daniel

I grew up immersed in the Real Estate and Construction/Homebuilding industries, as my grandfather and father involved me in the business from an early age. After graduating from the University of Connecticut in 2007 with a Business degree, I moved back to Windsor Locks to begin my career, becoming the third generation at Merrigan & LeFebvre Realty. This was also the beginning of the worst and longest economic and real estate recession the country had seen in decades. Real estate agents were leaving the business at a record pace. During these downtimes, I learned how important it is to be accountable and honest with my clients and that here is no substitute in this industry for hard work. My father brings 40+ years of experience; he has been and continues to be my mentor. I consider myself lucky and proud to have learned the old fashioned way of how the real estate industry works. I combine that knowledge and experience with my own experiences into the fast-changing climate of today's digital world. I have enjoyed a successful 12-year career as a real estate veteran, hold a Real Estate Broker license, and have worked in every aspect of the real estate industry, including representing buyers, sellers, investors, and banks in residential, commercial and land transactions. I take pride in brining top professional service without pressure or sales pitch. Dan lives in Windsor Locks with his wife Emily and son Austin. Outside of the office Dan likes to play golf, travel, ski, scuba dive, be outside, and spend time with friends and family.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Southwood Acres?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Southwood Acres?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
