As a resident of Chatham and former resident of Short Hills for almost 30 years, I am familiar with and have personally experienced many of the benefits, joys and opportunities of the neighborhoods in the Millburn Short Hills, Chatham and South Orange/Maplewood neighborhoods. I can quickly work with buyers and sellers to understand your needs and direct you to finding the perfect home.
Having three children who attended Pingry, Kent Place, and the Millburn-Short Hills school system (public and private), I can review the educational options and help guide you as you become part of the community These towns have so much to offer, including the great restaurants, sports, outdoor recreation and all aspects of public transportation. Specializing in 20 years of residential real estate in New Jersey along the Midtown Direct Train line towns and knowing the nuances of each community is what has made me invaluable to my clients.
I work in residential real estate, luxury homes, new construction, Georgian colonials and first time buyers. I donate my time and financial support to numerous charitable events. This is my commitment to give back to those businesses and people who have given so much to our communities With years of experience helping buyers and sellers like yourself, I know how to locate the finest properties and negotiate the best deals. It is my job to know the latest market conditions, regulations and upcoming developments to ensure that you will be fully informed as you make this exciting decision.
As your Buyer's Representative I can make the process of house hunting easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. I can help you get financing, guide you to local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. I will save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will do everything possible to help you through this important transition.
Once you have found your dream home, I will at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer and will negotiate on your behalf to make sure you get the most favorable terms. It is my job to always have your interests first, and this comes at no cost to you as i am an accredited buyers representative.

What distinguishes Suzy Minken in the real estate community is her unique blend of experience in both corporate consulting and interior design. Suzy’s consultative style provides an added level of expertise and sensitivity for all her clients, resulting in extraordinary service and professionalism.

As a licensed Realtor with Keller Williams Realty based in Summit and Short Hills, Suzy delivers a tough negotiation from the initial offer through home inspections issues to closing. Suzy was first introduced to the art of successful negotiation while attending the School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) at Cornell University where she earned her B.S. degree. Suzy also attended the Stern School of Business at New York University where she earned her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree.
Suzy grew up in a Victorian home at the beach in New York. After college, she moved to North Carolina and later moved to New York City where she lived for over 10 years. Like many of her clients, Suzy has made the move from an urban center out to the suburbs of New Jersey to raise her family and knows first-hand how challenging relocation can be.
Choosing a town that is the right fit for one’s lifestyle needs is equally as important as finding a home that has the right floor plan or “footprint”. For Suzy, that “right” town was Westfield, where she has lived for the past 20 years and has raised her two college-age children.
So whether you are planning a move in Essex, Union or Morris counties, you can count on Suzy to assist you with your real estate needs and exceed your expectations. Suzy is passionate about finding the best option for her clients at the best possible price.
