Mark and Lourdes Del Col

Sellers and Buyers

"Sue Checchio has been serving our real estate agent for 15 years. She has represented several of our family members in the purchase and sale of multiple properties. She is fabulous! She knows our DNA and our needs/ preferences. Sue makes a stressful process smooth, with her assurances and extra effort to close the deal. We will never go into a real estate transaction in central or northern New Jersey without Sue. Her knowledge and understanding of the market, its players and trends is unsurpassed, as is her character and integrity. Sue is like family."


Jessica Mondon and Jonathan Pease


"Sue made buying our first home feel so easy! She was always available and willing to answer all of our questions at any time of day, and made sure we stayed informed throughout the entire process. She had our best interest in mind, and was always honest with us. Sue was very supportive throughout the ups and downs of this emotional process, and I couldn't imagine going through this without her. She was really willing to listen to what we wanted and work with us to ensure we found the perfect home! "

Valerie Anderson


"I would recommend Sue in a heartbeat for anyone looking to buy their dream home in or around Westfield. As first time home-buyers, she held our hand every step of the way and always advocated on our behalf. She made sure we made informed decisions, and she had our best interest at heart. After many negotiations with the sellers, Sue was ultimately the reason we got the house. I will direct all of my friends to Sue who are looking for a realtor in the area."

Rachel Lipschutz


"As a real estate professional myself, I knew I needed someone who would listen and hear my needs and also someone I could trust. Sue was all that and more. She was a pleasure to work with and made the stressful process of selling my home even fun!"

Ashleigh and Kyle Kostesich

Buyers and Sellers

"We could not recommend Sue more for your home buying and selling needs. Sue has helped us buy 2 houses and sell 1 over the past 8 years. We have and will continue to recommend her to our family and friends. She goes above and beyond consistently to do the best thing for her clients. She worked with us to put the best offers forward and learn what was important to us so we could prioritize expectations in this crazy market. In addition, her knowledge of the market and other local professionals makes a very stressful process a lot smoother (especially when you are buying and selling at the same time!). I can truly say we would not have found our "forever" home if it weren't for Sue and could not be happier! "


Bill and Evelyn Zachar


"Bill and I want to thank you for all the hard work and expert know-how you brought to the process of selling our four properties. Not only were you well informed and thorough in bringing these four sales to completion, you were always pleasant and professional, willing to listen and take our thoughts and ideas into consideration. You are also a good negotiator when buyer and seller meet an impasse, calm and controlled when things appear to be unraveling and steadfast in closing a deal. We should know, we witnessed these attributes multiple times over the last several years. Thank you for giving us your very best. We are very very happy to be in Virginia near our daughters but we do have fond memories of Westfield. What we had to accomplish in disposing of properties in New Jersey, a daunting task from our perspective, was accomplished quickly and professionally for us by you. Bill and I wish the best for you, Sue, both professionally and personally, You were a pleasure to work with."

Catherine Wendel


"Our experience with Sue Checchio was positive, and we felt extremely confident in her ability as well as professionalism in selling our home. Sue appreciated our home's special and unique qualities and, while experiencing her enthusiasm, we knew we had chosen the best agent for us!"

Shirley Rechtman


"For service above and beyond..I thank you. For your support .. I thank you. For worrying for me so I could get a good night's sleep.. I thank you. For your warm optimism..I thank you. For getting me a WONDERFUL buyer (everyone loves her)... I thank you."

Glenn and Lisa Rollins


"We are so grateful for everything you did for us to make selling our home so stress-free. You are so calm and helpful - I was a nervous wreck! We are settling in to our new home but will never forget you and how you found us the lovely New Jersey house in Scotch Plains."

Joanne S


"I have been thinking a lot about what I can say to thank you for serving us with the sale of our house. It still feels a bit surreal! It's like we are on vacation! Years ago, when we first started talking about selling our house, I knew that I would be asking you to help us. I knew you would take good care of us. Thank you for all that you did to make things run smoothly for us. I definitely was not on top of my game as far as focus and detail were concerned. Through all the difficulties my family was experiencing, I never once worried about the house sale. You have no idea what a gift that was and I truly believe it was you that eased the anxiety for me. I am glad we connected and hope that we stay in touch! "

Norm and Rebecca Neafcy


"It was with great sadness and some apprehension when we decided to sell our house in Cranford and move back to PA. Since this was our 1st time selling a house, we did not know what to expect. After our first meeting with you, we knew we were in the best hands possible. You are truly an outstanding Realtor. In every way you are professional, committed, focused, energetic, positive, compassionate, responsive, and have such a high level of expertise. But one of your most important features is how you truly care for your clients. Even when you were extremely busy, you checked in with us to make sure we were doing o.k. Your support and friendship really helped us through our transition. We truly appreciate all that you did for us. If we ever move back to the area, or know anyone searching for a home in the area, your name is at the top of our list!!! Thank you!"

David Weinroth


"My wife and I contacted Sue over two years ago to help us find a home. From day one to closing, Sue went above and beyond anything we could have hoped for in a real estate agent. Her depth of knowledge of the market, keen negotiating skills and friendly, positive attitude combine to make her an invaluable asset to anyone looking to purchase a home. I would happily use her services again, along with her equally deft associate, Kara Murphy. Anyone looking for a home in Union County would do well to contact Sue Checchio!"

Ken Bigelow

Seller and Buyer

"Sue helped me sell two houses and buy one over the years. On both sales, she made sure we got the best price possible, even when other agents were advising that the price was too high. She believed in the value of the houses and stuck to her guns. I highly recommend her if you are buying or selling in Westfield."

Nikhil Lele


"Sue helped my family find our new home earlier this year. Both during the process and after we closed, Sue has been an incredible source of local market knowledge, connections and general great information! Sue’s knowledge of the market she serves is unparalleled. Her patient and understanding approach to helping us find our home made our experience memorable and positive. She really cares about her clients as both customers and new members of her local family. I would highly recommend Sue to anyone."

Chuck and Cheryl Paden

Buyers and Sellers

"...Chuck and I thank you for all of your professionalism and patience and guidance through our real estate transactions. We're thrilled with the new home and all of the work and angst (mine) was worth it. You held us together through the trying 'home show' time and at the end, you made magic happen with your expert negotiating skills. Sue, I really don't know how I could have made it through that process without you on our side. I'll forever be thankful that you were there to advise, discuss, educate, absorb our anxiety, and at the end, tie up an amazing deal…."

The Giardina Family


"We wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for all of your help with our relocation. Since we were totally new to the New Jersey area, we had more questions than answers as we started to look for our first house. Your exceptional "local knowledge" and general real estate expertise proved invaluable to us in our search. In a very short period of time, you helped us get an in-depth understanding of the market and you were able to focus in on what we were looking for. We never wasted time looking at houses that were outside of our parameters and you never pushed us to make a decision. However, you did find the perfect house for us! Thank you Sue. You are a true professional and we really appreciate all of your help."

David Weinstein


"Sue was a tireless advocate for my wife and I throughout the entire home buying experience. She was constantly operating two to three steps ahead of all parties involved and she helped us navigate the process under tight time-constraints. As first-time buyers, this was an incredible asset for both of us. Most of all, though, Sue had our best interest in mind from start to finish. She clearly wants what is best, not just expedient, for her clients."

Eric and Emily Ostrowski

Buyers and Sellers

"Thank you so much for finding our dream home. We are so happy here and very proud of it. Everyone comments on how nice the house is and the neighbors have asked how we bought it so quickly and quietly. You made everything so easy for us. You were very patient and kind throughout the whole process. We really appreciate how you always took time to explain our options so we could make educated decisions. All of your recommendations were wonderful, too..."

Liz and Greg Sherger


"Working with Sue was an absolute pleasure. From the first viewing to the final closing, she was there every step of the way to make the home buying process seamless and enjoyable. Sue was very persistent with answering all emails and phone calls even on her days off! I would highly recommend Sue to anyone that is ready to buy a new home!!! Thank you again Sue!!"

Carolyn Ryan


"Sue Checchio is hands down one of the top real estate agents in the Westfield area. She is exceptionally knowledgeable, and if you are selling your home, she is absolutely the agent you want to hire. With both Sue's and her stager's tips, our home looked amazing when we listed last February at the start of the Spring market. I specifically told Sue that she had two weeks to sell my home. She priced the home properly to gain attention, and she accomplished the task in just 3 days with multiple offers and a final closing price over our asking price. Sue is reliable, honest, trustworthy, and dependable. Selling a home is an overwhelming and emotional task, and Sue held our hand every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better real estate agent, and so thrilled to have also built a friendship in the process. I would recommend Sue to anyone buying or selling a home - she is absolutely the person you need working on your side."

Kathi and Steve Cohen


"Thanks so much for your assistance and guidance in the February 2018 sale of our home in Fanwood. It was by chance that I walked into the open house around the corner several months earlier and met you. There are so many realtors to choose from and making the decision to sign with you resulted in a quick sale and smooth closing. Your experience and knowledge was evident from the moment you walked into our home. Your use of a stager made a big difference in the appeal of our home after living there for almost 35 years and resulted in a quick sale for full asking price! We appreciate your responsiveness at all times and keeping us fairly calm during the stressful stage of getting our home ready for the sale, hosting the open house and being a great liaison between us and the buyers. We wish you all the best!"

Rose Lejaski

Buyer and Seller Client

"I am honored to have known Susan Checchio for over 35 years. During this time I have known Sue to be an honest, dedicated and intelligent individual both personally and professionally. ... Several years ago my ailing Mother needed to sell her Westfield home of forty five (45) years. Even with her fragile memory Mom remembered Sue, (Mom always loved Sue!) and knew she was a realtor. Knowing that Mom could trust Sue helped make the impact of such a devastating change a little gentler for everyone. Sue skillfully guided us through the entire process from negotiating offers to closing. More recently my husband and I sold our home in North Jersey. Of course, we enlisted Sue to represent us in our search and purchase of a new home. During her professional career Sue has continued to excel, educate and broaden her scope of knowledge. She holds a number of professional certifications and accreditations. Sue also has a heart of gold and a true, honest empathy for people. "

Allie Levitt


"We immediately felt comfortable with Sue and knew that she had our best interests in mind from the start. Sue is very knowledgeable about Westfield and the surrounding areas. Sue really listened to what we were looking for in a home. She was incredibly honest with us and really respected our time. We are moving from New York City and it wasn’t easy for us to look at houses. Sue made sure to preview everything for us. The third house we looked at with Sue turned out to be the one! Throughout the entire process, Sue went above and beyond what she needed to do to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible. Sue supported us through the emotional decision of buying our first home in Westfield and there is no one else we would have wanted guiding us through the process. We can’t wait to move into our dream home and we can’t thank Sue enough for all of her help."

June Sobell

Buyer and Seller

"I feel so fortunate to know the two of you and to have had such care and love with my move. I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Joe Chanley


"Sue was fantastic throughout the process and went above and beyond to not only show us properties, but to show that she has a vested interest in getting us everything we wanted and needed. She was responsive whenever we had an inquiry and facilitated a lot of introductions for us."

The DiMaria Family


"This thank you is long overdue. You have been such a great resource and support before and after our move. You clearly go above and beyond the job! It's almost two years and we are finally settling into the house and making it our own. We love the house and the neighborhood... Thank you for your continued friendship."

Karina Fuentes

Buyer and Seller

"I have had several positive experiences with Sue as both my selling and purchasing agent. Most recently she was able to help sell a house quickly and for a great price, under some very difficult personal circumstances. Sue has great insight into all aspects of selling property - staging, marketing, pricing, etc. Equally important, she is very professional and easy to work with. As you can see, I have used her more than once and would do so again... so I highly recommend her services!"

Leslie Sullivan


"We were in the process of getting our house ready for sale. Sue came highly recommended to us as someone we should work with when we were actually ready to sell. So I called her, met her, gave her a tour of my house and told her we had a number of things we still wanted to take care of before listing in the spring. She advised us not to wait! While it was typically a slow time for house sales, she noted there was not much available on the market in our price range and what was on the market had already been seen. We decided to give her the listing, in house only for two weeks, and then when we were ready, would list on MLS. Never made it that far. Sold on first weekend, first showing. Throughout the process, she was a calm, steady presence. Helped us navigate the sale seamlessly in what can be a stressful situation for both buyer and seller. I would highly recommend her to either!"

Mary and John Dura


"It is with the deepest gratitude that we wish to share our heartfelt appreciation to Sue Checchio of Coldwell Banker for her consummate professionalism in helping us to prepare and sell our Westfield home. Her comprehensive expertise and understanding of market conditions, coupled with her attention to detail, quickly opened our home to serious buyers and, most importantly, to closing the deal. She worked unceasingly to move our property with minimal disruption to our family life. Sue became our trusted advisor whose generosity and helpfulness knew no bounds. We would highly, and without qualification, recommend Sue Checchio as a realtor par excellence. "

Nicole LaCorte Klein and Matthew Klein

Buyers and Sellers

"We have known Sue for years and feel completely comfortable with her professionally and personally. Sue has always been patient, kind and would go out on a limb for us whenever we needed her to. She is a perfect combination of every fantastic quality we respect in a Realtor!"

Mary Ann Dzuback

Seller of Family Home

"Our family was in the difficult position of having to put our family house on the market after our father’s death. Our parents had lived in the house for 49 years and it had been home base for all six of us siblings. We’d cared for both of our parents until their deaths in the house and the process of preparing the house for sale, dealing with inspections, considering whether to rehab it ourselves to sell, and entertaining offers was both painful and confusing. Thank goodness we had Sue Checchio to help us through this difficult process. We hit a few crisis points and Sue (who had known a couple of us in high school, we discovered!) was so knowledgeable and reassuring. We consulted her frequently and trusted her advice and wisdom. We would recommend her to anyone preparing their family home for sale— her expertise, combined with kindness and practical wisdom, are invaluable. Thank you, Sue!"

Denise and Dave Lemmon


"We happened to meet Sue very early in our home search and consider ourselves lucky for doing so. During every step of the process, Sue was there guiding us and going out of her way to accommodate us as we searched for a new home with a two-month old baby. Sue is that rare combination of realtor who not only possesses extensive knowledge about every aspect of the home buying process, but who also understands exactly what you are looking for in a home. In all honesty, viewing homes with Sue felt more like we were touring through towns with an old friend. During the home purchasing process, we encountered some difficulties with the seller and Sue defended our best interests and ultimately resolved the problem by maintaining an open, forthright dialogue with the sellers' realtor. In the end, we moved into the house of our dreams in a fantastic town; we are deeply grateful for all that Sue did to make that happen."

Nina Garone


"Sue is a consummate professional and the best real estate agent we have ever had. She treats her clients with respect and has their best interests at heart. She makes the sometimes overwhelming experience of finding the right home easy. My husband, Tony and I truly value Sue's wealth of knowledge and experience in the local real estate market and recommend her highly."

Denis Brett and Lisa Cummings

Buyers and Sellers

"... Besides being a true professional in every sense of the word, I am not sure we could have found anyone more truly engaged as well. Sue was always available for us and our millions of questions. She would send us messages both early in the morning and late in the evening. Sue guided us through the ups and downs of selling and buying a house and helped us keep our sanity along the way. When we started looking for a house while the sale was under contract, her commitment to helping us was even more impressive. She was on top of every listing that we were interested in and found the house that we now own before it even hit the multiple listing. Her counsel and strategy helped us win the bid on our new house and relieve the stress of having sold a house and having nowhere to go."

Ashley and Jamie Mandaglio


"We are so happy to have found our first home with Sue alongside us every step of the way. She is professional, accessible, and most importantly knowledgeable, qualities that make up an excellent realtor. As first time home buyers, the process of finding a home can be daunting, Sue helped us feel at ease and provided us with the support and guidance that we needed. We are so grateful we found someone who truly knows the community and who has remained a friend even after our home search has ended."

Mark and Caitlin Haas


"We were lucky enough to be introduced to Sue through friends of ours when beginning to look for our new home and will undoubtedly be referring her to friends and family moving forward. During the entirety of the process, she was very accessible and easy to talk with no matter the topic. We knew that she had our best interests in mind and would not hesitate to advocate on our behalf when needed. Buying or selling a home will always be a stressful process to some degree, but it was reassuring to know that we had Sue in our corner to help guide us along the way."

Michael Beshar

Buyer and Seller

"Sue is my Sales Associate at Coldwell Banker in Westfield, NJ. She found us our dream house in 2007, but not before showing us many many others. During the search, I emailed and texted her often - I am impatient and don't sleep - bad combo in the eyes of many real estate agents, BUT not Sue. She has the patience of saint and truly knows the area. Now that we are in our dream house, she is still a part of my life. I recommend her to everyone, including my sister, and she is now a friend of the family. This all began b/c she is the best damn Sales Associate out there!!!"

Kristin and Matt Drummond


"Sue is the real estate agent everyone hopes for. She patiently worked with me over the course of a year to make strategic improvements on the house and arranged for a stager and a professional photographer, who were both at the top of their game, to work with me as well. When it came time to list the house, Sue actually recommended a listing price that was higher than I anticipated. We proceeded to list at her recommended price and received an offer at the listing price from the very first showing. She was a good negotiator and someone you definitely want on your team because she looks out for you. I would recommend her to anyone selling or purchasing a home. I am so thrilled with the results. I also want to note that she saved us thousands in unnecessary home improvements I would have otherwise had done if she didn’t steer me away from them. Thank you, Sue!"

Britton and Nicholas Morin


"Sue helped us to find our dream home, and was instrumental in making the process as easy as possible. She was great throughout the search and negotiating process as we looked for the right home- she was very responsive to questions and helped us to fully evaluate potential homes. She has a large network of service professionals that she can recommend, which was invaluable when we had our inspections. Above all, she was a pleasure to work with! My whole family, including our kids, loved her!"

Jeanne Colucci


"Sue Checchio guided me through the entire home selling process from beginning to end. She generously provided excellent advice on how to prepare my home for sale a year before I put my house on the market. She has extensive knowledge and experience in the area and was able to refer me to the right professional for every issue. Sue answered every question I had and was always available when needed and found the right buyers for my home. I would highly recommend Sue Checchio to any seller OR buyer. She's the consummate professional with a terrific personality."

Beth Murphy


"I absolutely recommend Sue Checchio for the sale of your current home, or purchase of your next home. Having had both experiences with Sue, I can tell you that she is the professional to get either job done. With her attention to detail, her sales experience, and creative strategies, Sue will be there with you every step of the way. I have known Sue now for a number of years, and what started out as a realtor-client relationship has turned into a strong friendship. She helped me to find the perfect house to satisfy both my geographic preferences and economic situation - no easy challenge. When the sale of my home hit a roadblock, she expertly navigated me through it until it was successfully sold - and for a higher price. I don’t think you could ask for a better realtor to help guide you through one of the most important financial decisions you will ever make. "

“It's time to own your dreams.”
