Real Estate Expertise

As a Licensed Associate Broker serving Dutchess County for almost 10 years, with a focus on residential real estate, I have developed a depth of knowledge, and honed the negotiating skills necessary to a successful real estate transaction.


Sue has always been responsive and has great grasp on local market conditions if it's financing question or you need comparative market analysis Sue the right person for the job. This market brings with it many challenges you need a expert to help you navigate." -Michael Marinaccio "We had a very positive experience with Sue. As a first time homebuyer, and someone who was skeptical of working with a real estate agent and them having our best interest in mind; we felt very comfortable with Sue and that she did indeed have our best interest in mind. She was not pushy and we definitely felt like she was working for us. We would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone."

Ann McErleane

"Sue DeCosta sold two homes for me, one in a good real estate market (2005) and one in a poor market (2010). Both homes were sold within three months. Sue hosted open houses and placed excellent online ads for these properties. She worked tirelessly to complete the deals, including price negotiations and issues that arise with inspections. Sue also made herself available for appointments with inspectors and involved parties when necessary. She keeps the lines of communication open and works with you. Sue is knowledgeable about the market and the areas that she deals with. I would recommend her and use her services again if needed."

Grace Dash

"Sue introduced us to the East Fishkill area and showed us several homes to understand our preferences. We quickly found a wonderful home that was perfect for our needs. We negotiated a deal within a few days. A few years later, when it was time to move again, Sue listed our home (currently on the market). I would recommend Sue to anyone seeking to buy or sell a home in the East Fishkill area. She has a great knowledge of the community and the local real estate market. She is focused on making deals and helps her clients understand the market forces."

Stephan Zollner

"She was very focused on getting the job done, returned all my calls in a timely fashion, and always kept me updated. She made the process very easy"
