Who is the best real estate agent to buy or sell your house or condo?
REAL ESTATE LEADERSHIP
With over 20,000 real estate agents in Palm Beach County. One thing that divides them is technology. Constant changes in web design, SEO and social media make it nearly impossible to keep up. Most agents outsource tasks due to time or technical constraints but without understanding IDX data feed, listings may not broadcast to potential buyers thus costing sellers both time and money. With such competition I can’t spill the beans.
I share my knowledge and skills by volunteering for local and international organizations.
- I commit to be recognized as a trusted adviser.
- I immerse myself into the local community.
- I sign up for volunteering and raise funds for charity.
- I connect with friends and groups on social media.
- I plan social events to connect people and enrich their lives.
Community involvement gives me in-depth local knowledge. As a professional real estate agent, I also strive to possess these highly valuable leadership skills:
- Expertise in web design to rank high on search engines.
- Knowledge of imaging, blogging and social media tools.
- Strong ability to research, negotiate and interpret contracts.
- Engage in personal, social and professional networking.
- Ability to connect with people from various demographics.
- Sincere, trustworthy and immersed into the community.
BRANDING and MARKETING
- Represent trusted brand, professional sales and marketing style.
- Innovative communication and presentation skills.
- Ability to present concepts in multiple languages to people from different cultures.
“When my mother decided to sell… we chose Susanna… informed, responsible and committed to providing excellent customer service. We had a signed contract in less than a week. I would recommend Susanna without reservations …” – Donna P, Seller (2013)
“Susanna had to do a lot of explaining [in Swedish] about the buying process, negotiations, the real estate market and all the pit falls… She was very attentive to our needs and had answers to all our questions… and we are very satisfied with the house we finally bought, very much thanks to Susanna,” – Henric S, Buyer (2015)

We are recruiting and hiring agents offering competitive commissions, onboarding with one on one mentoring, outstanding web presence, top of the line client tracking system and professional CRM.
Buyer’s Agents have tools to establish Fair Market Value.
I was working with a family earlier this year to find a waterfront home with easy ocean access that could accommodate 3 boats between 30-60 feet. After exploring waterfront homes in three counties together, they found a home while driving around on their own. They contacted the listing agent directly on a direct Intracoastal waterfront home listed for $2.49 Million and negotiated to purchase it for $2.4 Million.
Commissions are paid by the seller and negotiated at time of listing not at time of sales contract.
Some buyers believe they can renegotiate the listing commission during the sales negotiation process. The Listing Agreement is a legal contract between listing agent and seller – BEFORE marketing the home.
Misconception of Saving Money.
The buyers throught they had saved $70,000 by going directly to the listing agent. Out of curiosity, I did a comparable market analysis (CMA). My CMA showed the fair property value was $2,150,000 unfurnished. Without an experienced Buyer’s Agent with tools and experience to research fair market value – the buyers overpaid $250,000 (less value of furniture).
Seek expert advice from a Buyer’s Agent so YOU don’t overpay!

“I was honored when Norwegian Airlines invited me to be the featured Florida real estate agent in their inflight magazine ‘N by Norwegian’ to celebrate their new nonstop flights between Oslo (OSL) / Copenhagen (CPH) / Stockholm (ARL) and Ft Lauderdale (FLL) Florida in November 2013. Norwegian Air Shuttle – one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines with over 1.9 million passengers per month shipping 150,000 golf bags,” – Susanna Malmgren-Grubb (Sept, 2013)
Norwegian Air Shuttle is also starting nonstop direct flights with the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplanes to Orlando (MCO) in spring 2014.
