Susan Hotchkiss



I was expecting my daughter in 2000 and as a mom to be; I knew I wanted a career that would give me the flexibility I needed to ensure that I would not miss any special events with her. 20 years later I am still practicing Real Estate full time and I love it!

As a lifelong resident of Oxford, CT it's only natural that this is one of the towns in CT that is truly special to me; as a matter of fact it is my lifelong home town. and I purchased the home I grew up in. 

Other towns I enjoy working in are approximately within a 30 mile radius from Oxford; as I know them well due to their proximity and the amount of time I have been in the industry. Some of those towns are (but, not limited to) Southbury, Woodbury, Newtown, Seymour, Fairfield, Stratford, Beacon Falls, Middlebury, Monroe, Shelton, Trumbull, Ansonia and Derby. 

I take pride in my work and I am committed to successfully helping my clients whether it is to sell their home, buy a home or both. My focus is to help my clients achieve their goals and receive a testimonial from them when the job is done to say they were happy with my services and that they would recommend me to friends and family. You only get reviews like that one way and that's by doing the job well.

During today's pandemic; I am up on all ways to work Real Estate virtually as well as in person and safely for both the sellers and buyers. All precautions are taken.

Put me to work for you; call me any time for a free; no obligation consultation. 

You can reach out to me via cell at 203.314.7874 or by email at [email protected]

I can't wait to hear from you.

What Clients Are Saying

Susan is a blessing. I had to manage and then sell a nightmare. I purchased the house as a short sale and as a result of a downturn in the market or I would have lost the second mortgage that I had on the property. I then had a person move in who was financially supported by the town but was far from clean Initially, I tried to sell it but could not as the house was simiplt not "showable." I was, thus, forced to evict the tenant. Because I did not want to place an impoverish person on the street, I delayed teh actual eviction to work with the tenant. A year went by and she still did not move. So, I had to bring yet another proceeding. Finally, when she left (she did find a new place), the house needed tremendous cleaning.

Susan was there at all times, going far beyond what she was required to do. She recommended an eviction attorney, a closing attorney and even someond to clean and paint the house. She was there during cold weather to insure the pipes did not freeze. At all times she worked with me to sell what was a very difficult house to sell.

She is professional, diligent, honest, thorough, caring, bright and truly takes your interest to heart as she puts 100% into the transaction, the house, the sale, the process and, most importantly, he customer. i could not have been more pleased with Susan, from the moment I had to purchase the house through its sale. She is a gem.

Susan Hotchkiss was terrific to work with. She was with me every step of the way, always available to talk, quickly responded to texts or emails and always made sure I was comfortable and that my questions were answered. She offered great advice and was always positive during those more difficult times that always happen during home buying. As a divorced father with two young children making his first home purchace on his own, Susan was patient and immediately knew the importance of including my kids in the home buying process and decision making. She made us all feel like family and we are lucky to have found her. Thanks for everything, Susan!!

Jon Farias-Waterbury, Ct- Buyer

We had an excellent experience working with Susan on the sale of our 4 bedroom home in Oxford, CT. She priced our home perfectly, had beautiful photos taken, held 2 open houses and we had our buyer in 2 weeks! The entire process, including an on-time closing, went smoothly.

Susan was very quick to respond to any questions I had. We mostly used email and text to correspond which worked out great for us and I never had to ask a question more than once. Susan has a very down to earth approach to her business. She’s friendly and professional.

I highly recommend Susan!!

Susan Hotchkiss is a great realtor to work with. She was extremely prompt in replying to my emails and calls. We needed a mortgage broker and she was helpful with names and numbers of reputable companies in the area. She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are taken care of. You can be certain that she has your best interest in mind and the experience to make the best recommendations. During our walk through, she was also very helpful with staging suggestions. I highly recommend Susan for all of your real estate needs.

Hi Susan, I've been meaning to thank you for helping us get into our new house. You were very diligent in keeping all parties involved and on track to meet our time frames.

Susan's knowledge and experience were most helpful in helping me navigate through the purchase of my condo. She was always quick to get back to me, extremely professional and displayed excellent negotiating skills. She made my purchase a pleasant experience.
-Maggie Gavaletz - Southbury
Susan was our Realtor when we moved from Ansonia to Shelton on Aug. 2010. Susan originally contacted us when she saw our listing had expired with another agent. She went above and beyond our expectations. She was very respectable, professional and always quick to accommodate. She's on top of every aspect of a real estate transaction and was very sympathetic to our needs and goals. Because of all of these qualities we also chose to work with Susan in finding our new home. We would highly recommend her. -Carlos and Michele Fernandes

We had the pleasure of having Susan Hotchkiss sell our home for us this winter. We were very impressed with her professionalism and commitment to us. Susan listed our house at a price we were pleased with. She advertised it well, and it was sold very quickly close to the asking price. During the entire process, Susan was very patient and thorough with us. She was always available to take our calls or meet with us any day of the week at any time, even Sunday nights. We felt that she was always looking out for our best interest. We were very happy with Susan's services. We have already recommended her to a few of our friends. -Kristin & Steve Dugan

Susan helped my husband Luke and I find the perfect home in our price range, when others we spoke with said it was impossible. Susan was always such a pleasure to work with and never made my husband and I feel rushed or unimportant. In fact, Susan often made us feel as if we were her only clients! Susan had our best interests at hand and listened to what we wanted, rather than telling us what she thought we wanted. Of all the people involved in this transaction, she is the one we trusted most and went to most often for guidance. Because of her, this was an extremely pleasant experience.

Susan did a great job selling our house, from our first meeting to our closing. She gave us great advice on how to prepare our home for listing, she placed great pictures on our listing page to attract a lot of attention, she prepared a great Open House which helped to attract multiple offers, and she was a tremendous help in all final negotiations. With all of Susan’s hard work we were able to get an offer on our house above asking price, and were able to sell our house only 4 days after the house was listed. We truly enjoyed working with Susan on the sale of our home, and will recommend Susan’s services to all of our family and friends. Thanks Susan!

Zee Warren-Shelton, CT Buyer
Susan was completely on top of the entire process of selling our house from beginning to end. We would recommend her without hesitation.
-Jean Mazzola - Torrington
Susan is a very professional agent. You don't find many like her. It had been 30 years since our last real estate transaction; so you can imagine there had to be a lot of educating. She always took the time to explain to us in detail and she did it with grace and patience. Her impressive negotiating skills helped us get what we wanted for our home even in this tough housing market. We highly recommend her!
-Epifanio & Martha Gonzalez - Seymour
Susan Hotchkiss has been my realtor for the last 8 years. She has helped my family sell our starter home and buy our current home. Because of her experience and professionalism, we have continued to refer her to our closest friends and family. We have just closed on a third home with Susan. This is a retirement home for my Mother. It doesn't matter if you are buying your 1st home on a fixed budget or if you're buying your 15th mansion, Susan works just as hard for you either way! She is highly motivated and organized and provides consistent, high quality service. I couldn't ask for a better Realtor or friend. -Michelle & Kevin Rascoe, Ansonia

Along with my wife Janette, I recently purchased a home with the services of your company and in particular, realtor Susan Hotchkiss. I wanted to take a moment to sing Susan's praises as she was a huge help in our finding a home. Susan was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, personable and maybe most importantly patient. Susan always returned our call promptly, whether they were made to her office, house or cell phone and even at odd hours. I hope to refer friends to your office and Susan in the future as she made what can be a very stressful, frustrating experience more than bearable and even a little fun. -Samuel & Janette England, Naugatuck

Susan was innovative and creative in marketing my home. She was always ready to lend a hand coordinating snowplowing, lawn mowing, stopping by to empty the dehumidifier, bring in the mail, etc. After I received an offer Susan was there again for me-helping me understand the ins and outs during the closing process, providing names of lawyers, and septic companies and giving moral support! Most importantly to me, Susan remembered I was selling my home-and treated the emotions surrounding the process with kindness and tact, proving herself as a friend as well as a realtor. I would highly recommend Susan Hotchkiss as Realtor to represent potential buyers and sellers-she is extremely competent and reliable, puts your needs first and demonstrates high professional and ethical standards: all realtors should be as conscientious.
