Ratings & Reviews

My husband and I are very happy with the service we received from Susan Beals. We are new to Seattle and this was our first house purchase so we needed a lot of advice and guidance which Susan was always happy to provide. Susan took the time to get to know us so she could make recommendations that matched our budget and our aspirations. She sent us lots of different properties by email before we started our search so we could see what was out there in our price range and she followed up with more information and the final selling prices on the properties we liked. We were impressed with her knowledge of different neighbourhoods and her ability to present the pros and cons of different house types. When we were ready to make an offer, we found ourselves in a competitive bidding situation. Susan's knowledge of the market and the seller's situation really helped and she helped us stay calm and put together a winning offer. Finally, through the contract and closing process she explained every step and checked all the documents with us. She was easy to get in touch with 7 days a week. We are so happy in our new home and would recommend Susan Beals to anyone who wanted a sensible, down to earth person who is easy to talk to but who is also a tough negotiator.

Katy, you and Ian were great to work with, and I am so happy that you are now in your terrific new home. How lucky we were to find a condo in an amazing area of Seattle that meets all of your criteria for walkability and community resources. It really is in a wonderful location, and it is beautiful. Thank you for this review, and for being so easy to work with!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Pinehurst, Seattle, WA.

We chose Susan to be our realtor because we knew she would have our best interests in mind. Katie and I were looking for a home within the next six months and Susan attentively kept in touch with us and provided us with many great home listings that fit our requested criteria. Needless to say, after three outbid offers and one failed home inspection we were amazed at how positive, diligent and supportive she was when any obstacles were present. With her superior service, thorough knowledge and honesty she kept us informed all along the way and was able to avoid any potential problems before and during the buying process. Susan really steps up when it is time to negotiate for you and your family. I have been in the customer service industry and know how important customer service is. Susan knows what she is doing and you can trust her while everyone has a great time doing it! Thank you Susan! Katie & Erik

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Maplewood Estates, Renton, WA.

I decided to downsize. Susan helped me to explore some neighborhoods and find a great house. She is very knowledgeable and practiced at making offers and negotiating. She made my offer in person and it was accepted. Then she was totally amazing at helping get my house on the market and getting it sold. She has wonderful resources for cleaning, repairing, moving, staging. Susan was so responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. I had multiple offers and she explained how to evaluate them and make the best decision. She is so professional and handled everything. I can't imagine how I would have done it all without her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $950K in Somerset, Bellevue, WA.

I met Mrs. Susan Beals when I went to the "open house", which she was the seller's agent. Even if I was not quite ready to buy a house at that time, she was kindly explained what was going on in this market since I recently moved from East Coast. I didn't have my agent, so that I asked her to be my "buyer's agent" then she refused my proposal. She said she can't represent the seller properly if she represent a buyer on the same property. I could understand her professionalism. So, I asked her to be my agent for my home. After we had longer meeting to discuss what type of home I wanted, she started sending me "only" listings that met my requirements. She helped me to evaluate properties with my own standard. Even if I am not a native English speaker, she was kind and patient enough to make me fully understand the pros and cons of the property. When I finally found a home to buy, she built me a great strategy to create the offer, that should win in the bidding, and it worked out. Her explanation was clear and accurate for the situation that I was in. There were many people who bid on the house but I won using her strategy. Furthermore, she has many great connections. She introduced me a honest, fast and hardworking loan officer, to close the home within 20 days. It is 20 days. The bank that I originally intended to get loan said that getting a lone less than a month is impossible. But, if you work with Susan, she will bring the right person that you need. She handed me the keys to my new home on the exact day she promised. However, this is not the end. I am still working with her. She has many good connections. After I closed the house, I asked some recommendation on remodeling bathroom ans kitchen. And she brought me the right person who I need. She showed up with the contractor and discussed some other great ideas to improve the home and explained me about remodeling process and terms and conditions that I never knew before. Working with her is like having warranty to purchase a home. This tiny review box is so small to express how my family thank her.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in University District, Seattle, WA 98105

Susan impressed us with her efforts to work to explore options to close a very complicated purchase from an estate. While eventually, the deal did not close, we walked away feeling Susan always had our best interests as her top priority, was willing to be creative with solutions, and took the time to explain every aspect of an offer and the potential impacts to both sellers and buyers. She took care of our interests, while she worked to complete a transaction. She is professional and knowledgeable.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Belltown, Seattle, WA.

Susan was awesome to deal with. I met with her in November to discuss the sale of my home. After our discussion we decided it would be better to wait to put my condo on the market. In April I decided to contact her again and proceed with the process. She gave me great advise and sold my home in 3-days, full price cash offer with a 2 week close :-) I would highly recommend Susan, not only is she very knowlegeable, but she is very personable and great to work with. Prior to working with Susan I had real estate horror stories to share! Now I have a fabulous positive story:-)

Sold a home in 2013 in Maple Heights-Lake Desire, Renton, WA 98058.

We watched the sale of our neighbors house that Susan was conducting and was impressed that it sold in one week vs another house on the street that took about a year to complete. We contacted Susan early and she advised what we needed to do to the house for sale and fed us reports of house sales in the area, market trends etc. When we were ready she organized a house inspection and a sewer inspection, pick ups completed and reports made in a binder to be left on the kitchen counter for prospective buyers to see. Her aim is to effect the sale within one week of the house going on the market. Ours went on the market on the Friday, an open house conducted by Susan on the Saturday and Sunday, multiple offers by the following Saturday and sold on Sunday for the asking price. We didn't make the week but took 8 days! Wow.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Lake Forest Park, WA.

We would not have been so successful in finding the perfect condo if we had not been working with Susan. She helped us every step of the way. She sent properties for us to look at that met our requirements. She helped us understand the purchasing process and all of the documents. She answered all our questions - if she didn't know the answer, she found it for us. She was able to point out advantages and disadvantages of each potential purchase, and gave solid recommendations. She was flexible with her time and available when we needed her. She negotiated a very good deal on our behalf and held the sellers accountable for their part. She was able to do a lot of the paperwork remotely - that was important because one of us was not in Seattle. She was calm, positive and reassuring throughout the process.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Cascade, Renton, WA.

Susan represented our family during the purchase of our first home. What stands out the most about Susan is her ongoing follow through and follow up during the entire process. She worked quickly to arrange timely inspections and provide preliminary title reports; she continually followed up with the sellers agent and with our lender to ensure everyone was held accountable and she provided us with constant feedback about the status of our purchase. Everything Susan said she would do, she did. Susan provided relevant recommendations during our purchase ( i.e. strategies to use in our offer letter, effective ways to get the most out of the inspection/ repairs we wanted, etc) that helped us make informed decisions that led to an accepted offer in a competitive market and led to us getting everything we really wanted during the negotiation process.

Because of Susan's hard work we were able to close a week early! We are now moved into our dream first home and we couldn't be happier! We were extremely pleased and pleasantly surprised by how smooth and quickly the process went!

Susan is an exceptional real estate agent. She is very intelligent, knowledgable and savvy and more importantly, she is a very caring and generous person that we truly enjoyed working with. I would highly recommend Susan to anyone seeking a real estate agent in the Seattle area.

Kendra, you are such an amazing person. I don't know how you got everything organized so well right before your baby was born. You made my job much easier because I knew I could count on you to coordinate everything needed for your lender and escrow, and you were always prepared for all of our meetings. Working with you and Patrick was truly a pleasure for me!
