Bought a home in 2011 in Signal Hill, CA 90755.

We just purchased our first condo!! We are very excited!! If Suzanne wasn’t there, we would not be able to get our dream condo so quickly. We know Suzanne by renting an apartment she was managing. Normally, she doesn’t manage renting properties. That particular time was just helping her friend out. She was very professional, reliable, and organized. Therefore, when we wanted to buy our own place, her name came to our mind. Because it was our first time to purchase a property, we had so much to learn. Suzanne was there guiding us each step and explain clearly when we had questions. She helped us to look for units that fit in our wish list and budge range, took us to see the properties, provided relevant information for screening reasonable price listings. Docusign she was using is also awesome. It saved us tons of time comparing to faxing or mailing the documents back and forth (paperwork was endless). Because we bought a short sale property, it was even more paperwork. Like we said, she was very reliable, professional, efficient, and organized. We felt very comfortable to have her represent us to negotiate with the sellers’ agent and prepare legal documents. Communicating with Suzanne was very easy as well. She was always reachable and flexible with time. When she was out of town for a family trip to Grand Canyon, she gave us a heads up and let us know that she could still be reached via emails. Because we bought a short sale property, communicating among sellers’ agent, our lender and sellers’ lender was very crucial. She did an excellent job to keep us both updated regarding the short sale progress, possible obstacles to overcome, and what to expect next. Both of us are grateful and excited to have our own dream home. Our first home buying experience was great. Suzanne even went above and beyond. She helped us clean out the trash in the unit (it was a short sale, so it needed some work). She rekeyed the unit and also helped us find a handy guy to fix the front gate. Thanks to Suzanne. We not only bought a property we want but also made a life-time friend.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $500K in The Plaza, Long Beach, CA.

My fiancée and I were first time home buyers looking to get out of apartment living and into a place we could call our own. My father actually was the one who found Suzanne on Zillow and after meeting with her, he introduced us.

From the moment we met Suzanne we found her to be professional, punctual, and knowledgeable about the area and the comparable sales. Every home she showed us...she came prepared with all the information in hand as well as detailed information about the neighborhood, schools and nearby home sales.

Suzanne, unlike other agents we have had, did not push us toward any one home. She was not pushy and really listened to what we wanted in a home. Even when we found homes that met most of our criteria...Suzanne still did not try and push us. In fact she was often the one to point out things that might be a problem down the road (swamp coolers on the roof, funky attachments, etc.). We found her honesty refreshing.

When this home (the one we bought) popped up on the Market, Suzanne notified us right away and within the week we had seen the home and placed a bid on it. Since we were first time buyers she was very patient with us as we went through signing all of the paperwork. She answered all of our questions and if she didn't know the answer she would find an expert who did.

The documentation process was wonderful with Suzanne! She uses Docusign, which is an electronic way to sign documents. No more printing out, signing, scanning and e-mailing/faxing again! With a previous home we were bidding on with another agent...we had to print out volumes of paperwork and when we e-mailed the buyers back the signed copies the buyers actually used snail mail to send the contract back to us...which took forever since they were in different states. Thank Goodness we found Suzanne and her Docusign process!

One of the reasons we found a new agent (Suzanne) is because our former agent...we felt...was never really on our side once we decided on a house. Once we picked the house we wanted to bid on our former agent almost switched sides...trying to do anything to get us into the house. Suzanne was on our side the entire way. She negotiated for us....hard. We felt we could really trust her.

In conclusion to this super long review....we recommend Suzanne to anybody looking to buy a home in Long Beach ( in fairness we only looked in Long Beach with her so we don't know how familiar she is with other cities). We had a great time working with her and now we are in our first home and owe it all to Suzanne. She is amazing. If you want a good agent you can trust to fight for you and find a good home at a fair price, look no further than Suzanne Padilla!

Bought a home in 2010.

Suzanne was fantastic. She took the time to understand what I was looking for in a home (a condo specifically) and I trusted her completely when she made suggestions regarding neighborhoods and buildings. She was very respectful in terms of staying within my budget guidelines. She was very thorough and responsive and even kept me engaged when I was feeling frustrated with the entire process. She's a great problem solver and I loved working with her. She kept me on track with all of the paperwork and provided great advice regarding lenders and financing options. I highly recommend her.

Bought a Single Family home in 2007 in City College Area, Long Beach, CA.

Suzanne worked tirelessly with us to find the right house in the right location. She was there all the way, making sure all the things that needed to be done to close the deal were done accurately, timely and efficiently. Once we moved into our new house, we had her sell our old home in West LA. She got us a great price in less than a month and closed the deal for us while we were on an extended foreign trip. I wouldn't use anyone else to buy or sell real estate.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $400K in City College Area, Long Beach, CA.

My husband and I had an outstanding experience with Suzanne Padilla as our agent. Our purchase was complicated by the fact that my parents, who lived in the San Fernando Valley, were actually purchasing the home, and we acted as their representatives. Suzanne did the extra work necessary to make sure everyone was on the same page. After the property inspection, she also negotiated effectively with the seller, who took responsibility for major repairs. Suzanne displayed wholehearted commitment to our best interests from the beginning to the end of the process. We enthusiastically recommend Suzanne as a real estate professional!

Showed home in 2010 in The Plaza, Long Beach, CA 90808.

Suzanne is an agent we felt incredibly comfortable with. After trying out a couple of lazy slugs, she did the little thing that other agents wouldn't take the effort to. We appreciated her driving us around town (in her car & spending her gas!) and really listening to our wants and needs. She was also incredibly prepared. Mapped out a plan of attack and had listing info ready for us for every property. Agents like her don't come around that often...we highly recommend her!

Bought a home in 2010.

Suzanne did a wonderful job working with me in a very difficult real estate environment. I'm a "techie" and she matched me at every turn getting me reports, forms, etc at ANY hour day or night. She works 24x7 for you!
