Top 4 Reasons
to Use Sue & Dip to Buy or Sell a Home
Sue & Dipper’s outstanding ability to sell and buy homes is well documented, but I would like to write about them, as people, with a work ethic and dedication to their clients that can’t be quantified. Throughout our home selling process, Sue and Dipper never wavered from keeping our best interests as their primary goal, above all else. In addition, their negotiating & problem solving skills are extraordinary. Yes, it’s a business arrangement, one that requires a business sense and professionalism that Sue and Dipper superbly provide, but it’s that feeling of being in a comfort zone with a friend, neighbor, or family member that makes them so special.

"took care of us like family."
Sue & Dipper took care of us like family. They have extensive knowledge of the local area, and were able to not only help us make an informed home purchase but even recommended a few good restaurants too. This team worked seamlessly together to take care of paperwork day and night throughout the home-buying process. They were able to answer any questions I had or get me an answer in a timely and efficient manner. I would recommend them to anyone moving into the area. Dane M.
"We highly recommend them"
“Sue and Dipper spent nearly a year helping us find our perfect home. They were so patient as we struggled to decide what we wanted. They took us to see homes all over Howard County and Baltimore City. After many months and countless home showings, we found our perfect home. We never felt rushed or pushed. In addition, they sold our old home the first weekend it went on the market. Sue staged the place beautifully and we had multiple bids and the place sold for above asking price. We highly recommend them.”. Liz b.
“It was such a pleasure to work with Sue W. Brazzel and her son, Dipper Wettstein. I refer to them as the real estate "Dream Team". They were so professional from our initial listing to the sale of our property. Combined, they have many years of expertise in the profession and it showed. I highly recommend them to friends who are looking for an agent. We have owned many properties but they knocked it out of the ballpark as far as agents go. You, too, will be thankful you chose them.” Rochelle K.
"We call Sue & Dipper a Dream Team"
“Since 2015, Sue and Dipper have helped me and my wife buy three rental properties and sell two. At this writing, we are working on the next acquisition. The help from Sue and Dipper has been immeasurable. With their help, one property was closed in 8 days. In a recent settlement, Dipper caught an invalid charge against us from the closing agent and saved us money. We call Sue and Dipper a Dream Team and run out of words to thank them.” Andy L.
"extremely professional, friendly, responsive and knowledgeable"
“Sue has been my realtor for the last 20 years. During that time, she has helped me sell 3 homes and buy 3 homes. Each time she is extremely professional, friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. I love working with her. She always gets me a great deal! Her partner, Dipper, is equally awesome. They make a great team! Both of my adult children have also used Sue and Dipper to buy their first homes. I highly recommend Sue Wettstein Brazzel!” Whitney C.
"We were amazed"
“We were amazed at how easy Sue Brazzel and Dipper Wettstein made this transaction seem and we know it was not easy. From the moment we called them until settlement, we have absolutely nothing to say but "WOW." They certainly know what you’re doing & they care about the client. They came in & told us EXACTLY what we needed to do before listing our house in order to make it show very well. They listed the house & we had over 35 showings in 3 days & a multiple contract situation. As local business owners we know many realtors and we are glad we chose Sue and Dipper.” Mona B.
"the top of the real estate game in MD"
“Sue is at the top of the real estate game in MD. Through a few moves since 2014, we’ve found homes that couldn’t have served our family better. I’m confident that my family has made sound and prudent financial decisions based on her advice. Moreover, she is available anytime for the many questions we’ve had about listings / home inspections / titling / walk throughs and everything else the real estate gauntlet throws at you.” Mark H.
"will go the extra mile for you"

"A++ in my book "
“Sue is awesome. In 1993, Sue sold my first house in Ellicott, MD. Since then, I relocated to Cary, NC. In 2016, my parents were planning to relocate to NC and needed a realtor in MD to sell their home. Even after all these years, I called Sue. She did a great job and was able to sell their home fairly quickly. Sue is A++ in my book.” jerri B.
"honest, truthful, logical, fair & fully involved with our needs"
“Sue and Dipper helped us buy or sell 6 homes over the last 15 years. They are a pleasure to work with being honest, truthful, logical, fair and fully involved with our needs.

One could not go wrong dealing with them on any aspect of real estate.” Joe d.
"EVEN LATE AT NIGHT"
“This is my second primary home purchase. In addition to being diligent,fast, Dipper responded to my phone calls, emails, & texts, throughout the day and even very late at night. Dipper is the only broker that has truly earned my trust. I would absolutely use them again.” Adam E.
