Susan is an experienced real estate professional and banker by training who prides herself on her keen attention to the needs of her clients. She is a seasoned negotiator and an outside-the-box thinker who has achieved record prices for her sellers and has structured creative deals for her buyers. As proof, REAL Trends ranked Susan as one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents in New York, and Halstead Real Estate awarded her the prestigious Strategy Star Award.

Prior to becoming an agent, Susan explored several different areas of banking, while discovering her passion for real estate. She spent many years lending money to notable real estate developers in New York City, financing the acquisition and development of residential, commercial, and hotel properties. As a testament to her strong analytical skills, hard work, and high level of customer service, Susan rose to the level of Senior Vice President and team leader.

With strong financial skills and an astute understanding that money is fungible, Susan’s experience runs the gamut of real estate transactions. She is well qualified to represent individual buyers or sellers, as well as sponsors and holders of unsold shares.

Susan graduated from NYU with a BS in Finance and Marketing. She received an MBA in Finance (fully funded by her employer) while working full-time.

Susan has always taken an active interest in education. She is the Treasurer of the Board of Directors of the NVLD Project, a non-profit supporting awareness of and research into non-verbal learning disability. Susan has served as Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the Stephen Gaynor School, on the Parents Board of Trustees of Bucknell University, and was a founding member of the Steering Committee of the Parents Board of Syracuse University.

A native New Yorker who was happily raised on Park Avenue, Susan chose to bring up her two daughters on the Upper East Side, where she resides today with her husband, David, and their two dogs. When she is not selling real estate, Susan loves playing tennis, going to museums, making jewelry, and spending time in her homes in the Hamptons and Palm Beach.

TESTIMONIALS

“Susan Burris was indispensable in facilitating the purchase of our new home on Central Park West…Susan gave us keen insight into the market and helped us navigate through the process. She added enormous value to the transaction and was instrumental in its successful completion. We would not be in the beautiful home we’re living in today without Susan’s help…We can say firsthand that in hiring Susan and Meryl, you are not merely engaging top brokers, but advocates as well. They are client-centered and work tirelessly to cut the best deals whether they represent the buyer or the seller. They are smart, patient, and simply a pleasure to work with. We honestly cannot recommend them enough.” – Eric L.
“Both Meryl and Susan have a strong commitment to excellence and integrity. They will approach your project with enthusiasm and initiative, focusing on your individual needs and concerns and exceed your expectations.” – Tricia K.
“Susan Burris and Meryl Jacobs have exclusively represented us in the purchase and/or sale of eight apartments. They are skilled negotiators who often exceeded our expectations on price and terms. They most recently sold a high-end property at an above market price to a very demanding buyer. I strongly believe that the deal would have never closed, but for the persistent and diligent efforts of this team.” – Melissa B.
“As a real estate attorney, I am frequently asked for broker referrals and Meryl Jacobs and Susan Burris are at the top of my list…Meryl and Susan have spent countless hours (in a couple of cases many months) identifying and working with various vendors in order to get a property ready to market. They provide great attention to detail, identify and make specific recommendations, and find vendors to execute the work. Their hard work gets great results. The last apartment they sold for one of my clients closed at the highest price per square foot ever achieved in the building.” – Saree P.
“Prior to working with Susan and Meryl we had been with a different broker and were unhappy with the quality of support we were getting…Meryl and Susan were thorough, consistent, articulate, and avoided hyperbole or over-promising. More amazingly, through their contacts they invited the NY Times Real Estate section to visit our apartment as an example of an UES apartment for their weekend edition.

They were always accessible and responded quickly. And they believed in the apartment. This was critical: if someone is going to be my representative I want them to have the conviction of their beliefs…I know what good looks like in delivering advisory services. With this as the benchmark, I strongly recommend Susan and Meryl as outstanding professionals in their space.” – Manuel de M.
