I have been a South Shore resident my entire life. I was raised in Braintree, MA, and have also lived in Weymouth, Abington and Whitman.

With nearly 25 years of professional experience (Corporate Banking, Mortgage Loan Origination & Real Estate Sales), I believe the key to my continued success has been my ability to listen. I focus on what’s important to YOU. I strive to incorporate your specific goals and expectations into a customized game plan designed personally for YOU.

I’ve been a proud member of the Classic Homes Real Estate team for more than 10 years. During this time, I have thoroughly enjoyed helping people buy and sell their homes. I find it incredibly rewarding to work with first time home buyers. For me, it is truly not “just about getting the sale”. I receive a great amount of personal satisfaction in getting to know my clients and growing our business relationship into a personal one. My first-hand knowledge of the mortgage industry is a powerful resource. I’m eager to help you to understand how mortgages work, what to expect from the loan process and how to best prepare for mortgage loan financing. My ability to help you in this way, certainly gives you a value- add benefit. Whether I’m helping you to Buy or Sell your home (or both), you are sure to find this additional knowledge to be empowering and extremely helpful.

I’m excited to work for you – Give me a call and let’s get started.

I was born and raised in the Metropolitan Boston Area. I split my time equally between home and work. When I’m home, my bichon/poodle Marley and I enjoy vegging on the couch with some boneless chicken treats! I love interior decorating, for myself and my family. It brings great joy and satisfaction to make a house a home. I have a knack for picturing what a home can look like: I can visualize how a simple inexpensive touch up or renovation can make a world of difference. Real Estate is a natural choice for me. I enjoy meeting new people, and really listening to their wants and needs. I treat each and every one of my clients as if they are the only people I am working with. I’ve formed lifelong friendships with some of my clients. Ask any of my rental clients to 1st time home buyers, I enjoy providing excellent customer service!
I came on board to join Classic Homes Real Estate as a Buyer’s Agent. With over 75 years of combined experience in the real estate industry, I made the decision to join a sales team that provides their clients with the kind of superior customer service I strive to provide for my clients, and knowledge of this local market. I look forward to helping you find your new home, too!

Testimonials:

“Within one month before I had to find a place for me and my wife…she found us a fabulous apartment, and just in time for our move!”

“Most heartily recommended!”

“I contacted Classic Homes about one month before I had to find a place for me and my wife. I told one of their professional rental specialists where we wanted to live and how much we could afford. She went right to work to find us the best available apartment. She could not have been more helpful. She found us a fabulous apartment and just in time for our move. Her attention to both our needs and desires…was impressive and I’m glad to have called on her for assistance. Most heartily recommended.”

What Susie’s Clients Have to Say…


“I’ve never seen such commitment to finding us the perfect home. ..After working with Susie, I never had to do another search for real estate on my own ever again… Kim and I couldn’t be happier with our new home.  Thanks Susie, you’re AWESOME!”   --Kim & Mark Hall

“Susie and I went from real estate virgins to very successful real estate venture partners.  Her knack for finding the perfect property has paid off financially for many years.  You’re lucky to have Susie back in Ma.  Send her back soon; I need her help finding some more great deals!”   ---Danny Williams

“ …She really listens to what you want, and doesn’t waste your time with properties she knows doesn’t match your interests.  Once she knows what you’re after, she’s like a human GPS.  She zeroes in on the right property, neighborhood, like a target on radar…”   ---Ron Daley

“Susie has ridden the real estate tidal wave for a long time.  She bobs and weaves with the changes like a champ.  When the market was high, she cherry picked the best deals.  You’ve got to have someone in your corner that knows what’s going on…She’ll find you what you want, and turn you on to the best deals, even today in this crazy market..!”    ---Nat Orr

“We always knew Susie would be great with real estate.  What started as a hobby has turned into a very successful career for her.  She was born for this.  Take it from her family, she’s a natural!”   ---Stevie, Jeannine, Lynne, Doug, Larry, Justin, Sarah, Taryn, Courtney  etc….

I grew up on the South Shore, the baby in a large, very close Italian family.  My Mom and Dad taught us kids how important it is to give back to our community, Pay it Forward...  I volunteered with cancer children for many years… my biggest “littlest” heroes.  I’m an avid supporter of animal shelters, a lifelong cheerleader and a huge fan of local youth sports, and all our great New England pro teams:  the Pats, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins.

I’m also a phenomenal real estate matchmaker.  I’ve been the ‘Go To’ Real Estate Advisor for many people for more than 20 years.  My passion for real estate investing took off in Florida when I moved to the sunshine state in the early 90’s.  After purchasing my very first home, I was hooked!  I researched, bought, rehabbed, and flipped numerous investment properties in 3 states.   Now that I’ve returned to my South Shore roots (sure I miss the warm weather, but it’s great to be near my family again!), my real estate matchmaking skills have found their home with Classic Homes Real Estate!  

I excel at matching up consumers and investors wish lists with the perfect specialty agent to help achieve their goals...with awesome results!   So whether you’re a first time home owner or a savvy investor, I really do know exactly where you’re coming from.   Let’s talk soon; I’d love to help you, too!

Specializing in South Shore & Greater Boston Home Buyers & Sellers, Investors, Landlords & Rentals


I was born and raised in South Boston, the oldest sister of 4 kids. I’m a HUGE Dog Lover: the proud owner of 2 Maltese sisters: “Precious Christina” & “Madonna Jolie”, which translates to: “My Beautiful One” in French. I adore fashion and the World of Beauty. I enjoyed a rewarding career as an International Beauty Advisor for Boots Intl. for 10 years.

I owned a duplex in Southie for more than 16 years and renovated my 2 bedroom home, upgrading to granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, the whole nine yards! I bought LOW and sold HIGH!!

I moved to Quincy 4 years ago and even have a parking space now! What a pet friendly neighborhood and so close to the big city!!!

My Real Estate career has spanned 20 years already. I’ve focused solely on the Boston market: residential sales, rentals, and property management. For more than 10 years my duties have included providing exemplary customer service to buyers, sellers, tenants and landlords regarding everything from solving their problems to helping people get their very own ‘American Dream’ throughout the Boston area.

I’m an outgoing, “people” person. I’ve got a great sense of humor, and get along well with many different personality types. I am the “Queen of Follow Up” (smile)…from complicated real estate paperwork to negotiating the very best deals for my clients.

It’s exciting time working at Classic Homes Real Estate in Quincy! Our Awesome Team knows our neighborhoods inside and out. Check out “What Your Neighbors Say” on our website, you may even know some of them! You will certainly be impressed with their glowing reviews! It’s been a great privilege to help Bostonians and people on the South Shore with their real estate needs for more than 20 years. Nice to meet you and I look forward to helping you, too!

Specializing in 1st Time South Shore Home Buyers, Investors, and Local Rentals

My sister and I grew up in?a small rural community in upstate NY. To give you an idea how small...we attended ONE school from kindergarten until 12th grade!? There were less than 100 kids in my graduating class...from the whole town!? Helping out on our neighbor’s dairy farm was a real treat! I moved from a small town just outside of Troy, NY to BIG city Lowell, MA when I graduated high school:  urban VS rural...on steroids!  

Quincy’s been my home for almost 20 years.  My husband John and I met years ago through an intramural softball league when I worked at Bank of Boston.  I’m a big football fan & trivia buff. Yes I’m a diehard Patriots Fan!! The only thing going on during football season on Sundays is watching games either at home or at a local sports bar. I’m a HUGE pet lover!  We found our precious black lab-mix puppy ‘Sammi’ at the Northeast Animal Shelter.  Sammi enjoys walking along the beach near our home and running in the ocean.

Real Estate runs in my family:  Property Managers, Real Estate Attorneys, and I’m a Licensed MA Real Estate Salesperson.  My husband and I are BOTH Quincy homeowners. I own a condo, my husband owns the single family we both call home in Merrymount. I was a 1st time Quincy home buyer, now I’m a 1st time Quincy investor/landlord, renting out my 2 bedroom condo in Quincy Center. My husband and I are a hands-on team.  We’ve done a LOT of remodeling to our Merrymount Home…adding a deck, reworking the layout inside, which now qualifies as a legal 3 bedroom (dramatically increasing the value!)  I truly enjoy making a house a home, including interior decorating to fit the personality.

When I became a MA Licensed Real Estate Agent, I was inundated with solicitations from many different local real estate firms.? I did my homework, spoke with several brokers and ultimately chose Classic Homes Real Estate because I bonded with the owner, Barry Rabinovitz.? He's so down to earth, easy going, genuine, and he knows what he's doing.? Classic Homes Real Estate has been helping South Shore buyers, sellers, investors, landlords and renters for more than 25 years.? I’m psyched to be on this Awesome Team!  You’ll find that I’m very social, friendly, and energetic and I communicate extremely well with everyone.  It’s so great to meet you!  Give me a call and let's talk about your real estate goals!
