A Little About Me

I relocated to Arizona from the East Coast in January 2000. Loving the desert climate, landscape and the ability to enjoy an outdoor life most of the year, it is a joy for me to help others discover the Arizona lifestyle, too!

I have been a Realtor® for 10 years and have gone beyond the basic licensing requirements to acquire two designations requiring many hours of additional education to have the increased knowledge to best serve my clients. I am a member of the Graduate Realtor Institute and completed requirements for Senior Real Estate Specialist. Also, a proud member of the HomeSmart Elite Group, 500 out of 5000 HomeSmart agents, we are responsible for closing 85% of ALL transactions in Arizona.

I am successful representing Sellers in getting their homes sold for as much as possible with as little inconvenience as possible. It is very satisfying to help Buyers find the right home for them whether “First Time Buyers”, people “right sizing” or those wanting second/vacation homes. Whether you are a Buyer or a Seller, my goal is to provide you with our most current local market information and my skilled experience so you can make the right choice.

When not selling Real Estate you can find me riding my horse CJ on the trails throughout Arizona, cooking up a meal for friends and family or visiting my grandchildren in North Carolina.

Susan and Tom Bettcher Bought an Investment Property in Desert Hills

"We want to thank you for your exceptional service to us as we explored numerous homes on the market. You are indeed real estate agent extraordinaire.

Janice Tatum Bought a Bank Owned - We Closed in Two Weeks!

"My son and I recently purchased a home using Susan as our Realtor. The whole experience was positive. Because this was a bank owned home in the building stage, much research was necessary. Susan went the whole way to get the info that was needed.

Susan was always prompt and kept us informed. She gave the feeling of being a friend while maintaining a professional manner.

We would highly recommend Susan to anyone looking to purchase a property."

Rental Listed and Leased within 10 Days for Andy and Lori Whittemore!

Andy Whittemore: "Early in January I placed a call to Susan Dryer because I was looking for a Realtor to represent me on a rental. I had received many direct mail postcards from her. She was very approachable and professional during our phone conversation. I recognized her knowledge of the market and realistic suggestions or improvements when we met at the house. After consulting competitive Realtors, I felt Susan was more perceptive and in my corner. In less than 10 days I had a signed lease. I have every expectation that my renters will work out fine and certainly will recommend Susan Dryer to anyone looking for a quality Realtor."

New York Investor Buys Rentals

"I have purchased 3 homes in the last two years with Susan Dryer acting as my agent. As I reside in New York, it is obviously critical for me to have a good set of 'eyes and ears' on the ground in Phoenix. Susan has been those 'eyes and ears.' She is a true professional that provides clear and honest advice. Susan is incredibly responsive to any situation that arises and is focused on getting the deal consummated. I have found her to be indispensible in acquiring my properties. Without her sound advice and assistance, I seriously doubt that any of my purchases would have occurred. I would ( and have) recommend Susan to anybody looking for an excellent Real Estate Broker in the Phoenix area."

The Adams' from Colorado Purchase Their Retirement Home in Cave Creek

"Excellent communication. Professional demeanor and appearance. Prompt response to questions/concerns. A pleasure to work with in all aspects of her profession."

Kay Rogers - Repeat Client

"Susan Dryer is an extremely professional and knowledgeable Realtor. She went beyond my expectations when she treated me as a friend as well as a client. Her thoughtful attention to details gave me reassurance that the transaction would be completed in the quickest & best possible manner.
Her extensive experience in Real Estate, combined with her positive and caring attitude are a winning combination!
I highly recommend her as a Realtor."

Andrea Z. of Cave Creek - Bought a Foreclosure and Sold a Short Sale

I think it is easy to recommend a Realtor in a good market, but you can really see who steps up to the plate in this difficult time in Real Estate.
Susan was compassionate, proactive, open to suggestions, flexible, patient, enthusiastic and very professional.
I both bought a house and sold a house with her. The purchase was a foreclosure full of unexpected issues that Susan worked through by doing her homework promptly and professionally.The "sale" wasn't easy either, but it went smoothly and worked out in my favor.
Thank you, Susan Dryer, for all your help and professional "know how."

Dr. and Mrs. B. of Rochester, Minnesota Bought A Gorgeous Lot for Their Second Home in Cave Creek

"Ms. Dryer was the consummate professional during our one year long search for a property in Cave Creek. She was knowledgeable about the changing market and had a good sense of market values in a very dynamic housing market.
She gave me plenty of time to make my own decision and I never felt pressured to make a decision prematurely.
She made the process enjoyable and efficient.
She was highly ethical, never claiming to provide anything but market analysis and advice. She always steered toward other professionals to answer questions outside of her area of expertise (laws, city planning, engineering).
I would give an unqualified recommendation for her to anyone looking to purchase in the north Phoenix, Cave Creek, Carefree areas."

Finding An Apartment for A College Graduate from Colorado – Sight Unseen- Letter from her Dad

“Had a daughter that got a job in Arizona, and time did not allow for her to travel to Arizona to search for an apartment on her own. We searched the internet for apartments with no success. We saw an advertisement for Susan Dryer, real estate agent, and figured we’d give her a call. Within a day, Susan had a couple of options, and Susan went out of her way to view the apartment for us, answered all of our questions and provided us with information we would never have thought to ask.”

“We can’t imagine how much of this time this simple transaction took, yet every time we were in contact with Susan, she treated us as if we were her only clients and spent as much time helping us as we needed.”

“She also touched base after the move-in to make sure everything was okay and there were no problems.”

“As parents, Susan made us feel comfortable with renting an apartment, sight unseen, and ensuring us that our daughter would be living in a clean, safe community and would be renting a nice apartment at a fair price.”

“We would highly recommend Susan for any real estate transaction. Even though we were only looking for a rental, she made us feel as important as if we were making a large real estate purchase.”

My wife and I highly recommend Susan Dryer as a Realtor.”
