We were so impressed with Suzan's customer service to the sellers when we were buying the house we listed with her when we went to sell. Multiple offers and Suzan got it sold in a couple of hours. She has been there every step of the way as a expert advisor and would recommend her without hesitation.

We will choose Suzan FitzGerald and the staff at Flat Rate Realty for every real estate need from now on. They have gone above and beyond our expectations and frankly, they are just a pleasure to work with regarding one of life's biggest purchases or sale. I'm most impressed with how quickly out needs are met! Thank you Suzan and the Flat Rate Realty Team for everything. The Dixons ;)

I listed my property with Flat Rate Realty in March of this year which resulted the successful sale of my home May 29th, 2015. From day one I have been treated with the utmost courtesy and professionalism by this company. Flat Rate uses advances selling techniques (virtual web tours of your home, multiple listings) and their commission rate is very low. My realtor, Suzan Fitzgerald, assisted me in the process of selling a home by explaining all of the steps involved, from buyer to bank, in a concise and easily understood manner. She was a good mentor, even going so far as to provide me with very useful ideas on how to handle the anxiety and stress that seems to be inherent in the process of selling a home. Suzan always made time for my questions, responding within a few minutes of my texts or phone calls. I am very satisfied with the quality of service that was provided. I highly recommend Suzan Fitzgerald and Flat Rate Realty for selling or buying a home in Juneau, Alaska.
