Susie Schechtman, Partner, Broker, Team Leader

As a full time Real Estate professional since 1998, I treat every client like they were my only client…and every house like it was my own. It’s not just a philosophy; it’s what I put in to action for each of my sellers and buyers. While I put my experience to work on their behalf negotiating the best deal possible, I handle each detail from start to finish. Each transaction has its own, unique aspects and I thrive on making the journey easy and fun for my clients. While the transaction is eventually completed, the relationships and friendships that are formed continue on for many years. And with this challenging and ever-changing market, I am continually keeping up with the latest rules, regulations, opportunities, and government policies and procedures. I have numerous specialized certifications including an SFR, giving me the knowledge and expertise certified in Short Sales and Foreclosures. I have long term relationships with bankers and mortgage companies and numerous resources to make the transactions seamless. I would welcome the opportunity to put my aggressive administrative and marketing team to work for you. I’m thorough, a strong negotiator, backed by the deep resources of Compass Real Estate, and ready to make your selling or buying experience successful and fun.

In February 2012, my husband and I decided to relocate to Chicago from California. We weren't sure where we wanted to live in the city or even what our choices might be. We found SeeChicagoRealEstate.com and were amazed by how simple and user-friendly it was to operate! We were offered a wide array of buildings, neighborhoods, condos and price ranges. Within a few minutes of signing on, we were contacted by Susie Schechtman. She helped us narrow our focus, set up appointments for our upcoming visit and found our beautiful new home at Aqua! I highly recommend SeeChicagoRealEstate.comand Susie Schechtman to anyone who is looking for a complete, but simple and effective way to help them find a home in downtown Chicago.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Susie Schechtman to purchase our home this past summer. We found Susie on the SeeChicagoRealEstate website. She did an amazing job of sending me properties virtually in order to narrow down our search. (We lived in MA) We met with her a couple of times to view timber lofts in both the South Loop and Bucktown neighborhoods. We fell in love with the Bucktown neighborhood and purchased an amazing timber loft on the top floor (4th) with gorgeous views and wonderful amenities. The 606 is right around the corner! Many fabulous restaurants as well. Susie made sure all of our needs were met regarding what was truly important to us in a home. Absolutely recommend her to anyone who wants a hard working, knowledgeable and super personable real estate agent!

I had the pleasure of working with Susie Schechtman when finding a place to rent in the River North area. She made the whole process be as stress-free as possible. When I had questions or concerns, Susie made sure to represent my interests when working with the lessor. She was even proactive in regards to getting the property owner to comply with provisions we put in the lease. I'm ecstatic I had the opportunity to work with Susie and have found my real estate agent for life.

I had the pleasure of relying on Susie Schechtman twice. I moved to Florida and left Susie with the task of getting my home sold. Not only did she get it sold, for me, but she got me top dollar and the transaction went so smoothly. Now, I am moving, back from Florida, and I called Susie to have her do my looking for me. She found a beautiful rental for me. One year, of renting, and I will be calling Susie again, to go shopping for a home. Her upbeat, positive attitude, coupled with her knowledge of the market and the inventory makes working with Susie a pleasure!

My agent, and now my friend, Susie Schectman, helped me find my dream apartment in Chicago. Susie made my search fun and interesting. I was a buyer from out of town, so Susie had to assume a lot of the responsibilities I couldn't do myself. She was always helpful, always cheerful, very knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

We worked with Susie for about 6-7 months and then purchased a condo in April 2017. Susie was great to work with, always available, responds quickly by phone and email. She was very patient and very much wanted to make sure we were happy.

Susie Schechtman is an expert guide to the Streeterville / Gold Coast real estate labyrinth. She knows every block, every building and doorman, and every wrinkle in the market. She brims with insider knowledge. My wife and I could not have imagined a better partner as we plotted our transition to Chicago. With Susie's wise assistance we negotiated a great price on an ideal-for-us property at what we regard as one of the best locations in the city -- and we literally would have been lost without Susie. Highest recommendation!

Susie Schechtman helped me find the perfect place to live in River North. She took great care to understand my priorities and lifestyle preferences. Once she fully grasped what I was looking for, she presented me with great options that hit the mark and made the process easy and fast. I would absolutely refer her to anyone seeking a rental apartment in Chicago.

I have worked with Susie 3x buying and selling houses. She was great to work with! Susie was very professional yet easy-going. She knew the marketplace, took advantage of the resources available and went out of her way to ensure that I was satisfied.

Susie is an All Star. She is very knowledgeable about Chicago but is not afraid to say when she either does not know something or when she is not familiar with a certain area. She is full of energy, pays attention to details, and effectively uses her knowledge to calm any sticky situations. We were from out of the area and unfamiliar with Chicagoland Real Estate practices. She had endless patience. We went from interacting over the internet to looking at properties through purchase. Susie had a grasp of hundreds of condos and with the aid of a website helped us to narrow our perspective. We spent 2 days looking at properties to allow Susie to absorb fine points in which we were interested. She quickly picked up on our tastes and this really allowed us to efficiently make a decision.

Susie helped us find and purchase our first home. She was very helpful and professional. We will continue to work with her in the future.
I first contacted Susie over 2 years ago when we decided that we would relocate from Michigan to Chicago. It took that much time to sell our house but she kept in contact with me throughout that entire time. When my husband called her to tell her we were ready to buy a condo, she knew who he was immediately proving it was really her and not a robot keeping in touch with us! We really had no idea exactly where we wanted to live but she narrowed in on what seemed to be our priorities and found us the perfect fit in Lake Point Tower within 1-week and we couldn't be happier with the choice and experience ... thank you Susie, you're the best!

Susie was amazing from start to finish. She patiently answered all our questions and responded quickly. I would totally recommend her to other clients looking for a great realtor.

Susie Schechtman helped my wife and I to relocate from CIncinnati to Lincoln Park. We had a rough idea of what we wanted. Susie exposed us to every type of property in multiple neighborhoods. Because of her thoroughness we new exactly what we were getting into. She never missed a beat and was always one step ahead of the game.

Susie was very helpful in many ways not only during my property search and resultant move, but throughout the following year as well - answering questions and providing top quality and well priced recommendations quickly and cheerfully.

Roubina Knajian
Susie is one of the best and caring real estate agents that I have worked with. Very understanding, patient and attentive to details. She was always available and easy to reach by phone or emails, even late at night! I enjoyed working with her a lot and made the process of buying a condo in downtown Chicago less stressful. She is now more than just my real estate agent; she is like a friend and sister that is very knowledgeable of the local market and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her.

Susie Schechtman got my condo at Harbor Point sold quickly and efficiently at the highest possible price. She was always available to show it to prospective buyers anytime and even coordinated cleaning and painting of the unit above and beyond the call of duty. Within a few weeks there was a qualified written offer for market value and we moved forward to get it closed quickly. Susie always came up with creative advertising ideas to entice prospective buyers and there were results. Please afford her every courtesy to list and sell your property and you will not be disappointed. Billy Prewitt

Susie Schectman kept in contact with me for a year when I transitioned back to Chicago from Los Angeles. She was thoughtful and a good listener of my needs. She helped me find my new condo at The Legacy at Millennium Park and I could not be happier! We have since become friends and I choose my friends very carefully. Highly recommend her.

Susan Fry
Susie was a great asset to us since we were buying from out of town so she knew what we liked from our first visit and narrowed our list downtown condos to what we like to help with our limited time . She also helped with meetings to help with closing, inspection, and going to condo to get information for us. Very appreciated her time spent on these items we didn't have to travel. Thanks

Amanda Berk
I worked with Susie of the Guarnero Real Estate Group and had an amazing experience. She helped me find my dream home in River North and made the overall process smooth and easy. I was a first time home-buyer and she went above and beyond for me, answering my millions of questions promptly and patiently. I would highly recommend her!

Casey H
Working with Susie Schechtman has been such an amazing experience! She not only helped me find a home three years ago but helped me sell my condo duplex two weeks ago! She was very patient and understanding. My selling process was not an easy one by any means, and had been on the market since October but I wouldn't have been able to sell my unit without her. She pushed and stayed in communication with the buyers attorney and agent and went above and beyond. Could not recommend her services more! If you're looking for someone to find you what you want and to support you through the process, Susie is the best!
