About Sue

Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! I grew up in the real estate business, and 4,000 homes later, I''m still loving it!

We have been the #1 Keller Williams Team in the entire New York Region for 14 years running (We serve the NJ trainline towns of Millburn/Short Hills, Summit, Maplewood, South Orange, Chatham, Madison, New Providence, Livingston, Westfield and surrounding towns) .

Out of the 252 families we helped buy, sell or rent in 2019, 242 were either referrals from past clients or repeat business. We are very proud of this as we know that the best PR is word of mouth from happy clients. The Sue Adler Team is most known for the crazy amount of relocation business we do, as well as our internet marketing/Social Media strategies, which have been wildly successful in finding unlisted homes for our buyers and buyers for our listings by creating an unmatched referral network in the industry.

Victoria Carter
Weichert, Realtors
About Victoria

I have been a resident of New Jersey since 1994 and a professional in the real estate industry since 1998. I am absolutely thrilled that I have not only succeeded but climbed up the ranks of the real estate industry over the course of my career. In 2017, 2016 and 2015, I was the #1 agent for Weichert, Realtors company-wide. Before I made the career change and became a realtor, I worked as a senior corporate executive in Manhattan at Saks Fifth Avenue. This corporate experience is what I credit with honing my skills in negotiating as well as enhancing my already competitive nature. These are the qualities that give me an edge when I negotiate on your behalf. I am a top realtor in northern New Jersey, and I completely understand the strains – both emotionally and financially – that these life-changing transactions can bring. Moving is undoubtedly one of the most stressful events in a person's life, but you can easily relieve yourself of some of the burden as well as the time involved by working with a true professional in the real estate industry. I am not the type of real estate agent who shows you listings or brings buyers through without any degree of personal connections. Instead, I make it my priority to work directly with you and your family in determining the best type of home that will fit your lifestyle and in such, helping to make your dreams come true. I will discuss with you and develop a list of your needs and search for the perfect property that meets these needs. If you are selling your home, you can count on me to be a trustworthy and wise advocate that will guide you through the selling process so you can leave the past behind in pursuit of your future.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Summit?
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.
Read more

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Summit?
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 in Summit 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 in Summit 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.
