I Am Humbled by My Client's Reviews
I whole-heartedly recommend Susie as a realtor and advisor for your home buying/selling experience. Susie exhibited her knowledge and experience as she proactively addressed our many questions as they came up. Susie showed patience and generosity with her time and effort, which I know is not the case with all professionals. We absolutely LOVE our home and I’m so thankful that Susie helped us to keep perspective and maintain optimism during our house hunt. Working with Susie was more than a business transaction - she truly supported and helped us navigate through this life event. We look forward to working with Susie again in the future.

Well, well, where should I start??!!!!! I will begin by stating that I have purchased seventeen (17) homes during the past sixty (60) years of my life and sold sixteen (16) of those. Needless to say, I have dealt with several realtors! But, I must hasten to say that Susan Takara is by far the VERY BEST I have ever had the experience to deal with in purchasing a home. Honestly, I do not know how she has the time to spend with clients like me! She spent hours upon hours searching for the properties she knew would really please my wife and me. She went through two offers on properties that were not purchased for various reasons before the final offer and purchase of the property now owned. She spent hours and hours of showing properties to our daughter, and presenting offers and counter offers before the final purchase was consummated. And, never once did she hesitate or complain about the time she was spending, rather always being positive and encouraging. I could never, never, repay Susan Takara for all the time, efforts, and enthusiasm she exhibited in finally finding just the right property for us and following through on every detail until and after the closing on the property. And, can you imagine how many telephone calls she made, and how many e-mail messages she sent during this period of time??!! And, finally, can you believe all this was done while I was out of the country on an extended vacation??!! It would be very hard for a realtor to do what she did if you were in the same city as she, but think about all she did for us in getting to the final purchase and closing on the property and us thousands of miles away!! Well, now do you think I can recommend her?? Without reservation, as a worker, a professional, and a personality!! Should you need the services of a Realtor and you want a TRULY GREAT, EFFICIENT, UNDERSTANDING, DEDICATED, AND PROFESSIONAL INDIVIDUAL to assist you with your real estate needs, then call upon SUSAN TAKARA as your Realtor and you will never be disappointed!! Should you desire to contact me, just let Susan know and I will guarantee you that she will get you in touch with me. Larry Quentin Lane A Highly Satisfied Client of Susan Takara.

Susie is really a cut above any real estate agent I've ever worked with. Not only did she help us sell our home in Jacksonville Beach at a great price, she negotiated two subsequent purchases with a n ease I've never seen. Susie is that rate combination of a sharp business woman and a wonderful human being. Why just this morning - over a year after our closing - she got me a copy of my survey within minutes of contacting her. Seriously, such commitment is rare - give Susie a call!
Susie's professional title may be realator but she brings much more to the table than just the knowledge of how to sell one's home. It's an emotional process that she personally understands. Susie was able to be there with me through the ups and downs. She was a calming voice when needed, able to make me LOL when frustrated and always willing to explain the fine details of any contract. I'm SO grateful to have been recommended Susie as my realator. I can't imagine what the process would have been like without her. Thanks again! Also, no joke you were my personal realty therapist!
My first contact with Susie was over the phone. She was accommodating and personable. I felt an immediate connection to her. Shortly thereafter I met in person with her and Laura her broker. They took the time to explain everything to me and I was so impressed with them I signed a contract. Susie made the process easy and always replied to any communication from me almost immediately at all times regardless of the time of day, or day of the week. She also went above and beyond the call of duty by helping me sell some of my furniture. I recommend her to you without reservation.
I wanted to take a minute to say thank you sooooooooo much. You again have been great through all of this. You kept Mike and myself calm until everything could be finalized. Mike and I can actually raise the boys in a home now instead of just an apt. That has been something Mike and I have been wanting to do since we started fighting to be able to adopt the boys. I know we will make great memories in that HOME. (Sorry but it feels so good to be able to say “home” now and it actually be a home.)</p> <p>If I ever find anyone who is looking to buy I will defiantly give them you name and phone #. I don’t know how we would have ever done this without your help. You calling me a few months back is the start of the best thing (and the last big milestone) that could ever happen besides our kids.</p> <p>Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Susan was a tremendous help in the purchase of our home in the Nocatee community of Ponte Vedra, Florida. Living over a thousand miles away during the home build, both her and her partner, B. Knight, were able to keep us apprised of the building process and were very knowledgeable when it came to home building standards. Susan understands her buyers and listens to their needs. We had some issue with our Builder that needed to be addressed promptly, and that was done with the utmost professionalism. She is a hard worker who works for you. We loved that!

Susie is absolutely AMAZING!!! Rather your a first time buyer or looking for your next forever home, Susie is your go to!!!! She takes notes on what type of home you're looking for and will give you 100% honesty on the home prior to making an offer. While we were unable to locate ``our perfect`` prebuilt home, so we turned towards new construction. She met us at the lots to help us decide based on what we were looking for. She also assisted us in picking out the exterior design of our home. We can't thank her enough, we are now the new owners of an absolutely beautiful home!!! Verified by Realtor.com
My husband and I met Susie for a showing and immediately knew that she understood what we were looking for in a home for our family. She really listened and stuck with us through the long process of finding the perfect house. We were consistently sent new listings as soon as they hit the market and she was easy to reach at all times. We ended up finding the PERFECT home and we couldn't be happier. We're so thankful for all of Susie's help and her constant commitment. Thank you Susie!
Thank heavens, we had Susie Takara on the other side representing the buyer, but also making sure that we, on the seller's side, made the correct steps in order to achieve a speedy and successful closing. My daughter and son-on-law recently put their house on the market as a FSBO. Since I was a licensed Real Estate Broker before retiring some years ago, I was called upon to help usher them through the Real Estate maze. I found no difficulty helping with preparations, like pricing and advertising and, could even give a hand with the actual showing and selling of the property. But, as they say in the real estate business, ``finding a buyer is the easy part.`` With the passage of time since I was actively involved, things have gotten much more complicated and difficult when it comes to moving that sale through contracting, inspections, dealing with the lenders, etc.``
We would like to recommend Susan Takara as the most outstanding Realtor we have ever had. She sold us our first home in Clay County in 2017. She sold it for us in December 2019 since we wanted a larger home. She found the larger home for us and we purchased it in January 2020. During the three real estate transactions Susan was patient with us; answered every telephone call immediately with the responses we needed; with professional and accurate information; and spending whatever time was needed to satisfy our requests. We have been highly pleased in every respect with the quality real estate services and advice she has given us. Should you need an outstanding, honest, and highly efficient Realtor, contact Susan at URWAY REALTY and you will never be disappointed with Susan's ability to assist you in every step of the way to buying or selling your property. She is patient and understanding of your needs and we recommend her unreservedly as your Realtor. Verified by Realtor.com
Susan Takara is one great realtor! Her knowledge, her expertise in her professional chosen job is at the top!!! Wish all realtors are like her!!
We would like to share our thoughts concerning the outstanding experience we had with Susie Takara. Shortly after creating an account on home904.com I received a very pleasant call from Susie and was able to explain our situation and what we were looking for in the Jacksonville area. I was immediately impressed with Susie’s politeness and her genuine interest in our desire to relocate to Florida.</p> <p>On our first trip here were met in person and she took considerable time showing us properties from Middleburg to the beach and beyond. She exhibits vast knowledge of the real estate market and the various areas that we explored together. When we made a final decision she was instrumental in lining us up with John Owen of Movement Mortgage. Because of both Susie and John’s outstanding efforts we were able to close very quickly and efficiently.</p> <p>Susie went above and beyond what I believe any other realtor might be willing to do. Other realtors should emulate Susie’s techniques and personality. She gives the profession a very good name.</p> <p>I would also state that when I found home904.com that I knew that we I hit the jackpot of real estate sites. It is absolutely the best internet real estate site that I have seen and I have seen many. It is intuitive, vibrant and contains a wealth of information.</p> <p>Our hats off to Susie and home904.com.
Susie went above and beyond in finding a house for me. From the start to the closing table she was always there. I highly recommend her. 5☆
