Ratings & Reviews

Suzette has a great knowledge of the real estate market. She was able to sell our home quickly and we are very happy at the price that the property was sold. Once the home was sold Suzette was very attentive to all the details of the closing process and quickly followed up on whatever information that was required so that the sale was completed in a very short time period. We felt very fortunate to have selected Suzette as our real estate agent.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Westlake, Los Angeles, CA.

It's been 3 months since my partner and I moved and settled into our new home and I am finally getting around to writing a review for Suzette. She and her team were professional, responsive, and incredibly helpful throughout our home buying process, definitely a 5 star experience!

Suzette is more than a realtor; she was on our side, protecting us the whole time. She treated us like her own family and we learned quickly to trust her like ours. She not only helped us buy a place but sold our old home as well. As we were looking, If she sensed the house’s were not for us, she never pushed us but was there, a beacon, guiding us every step of the way. When we found the perfect place for us, Suzette was determined to make the transaction go as smoothly as possible. In regards to selling our home, her expertise in the market put us at ease. Once we sat with Suzette and reviewed the market rates and how to price our home, it was clear that Suzette new exactly what she was doing.

Suzette has kept in contact since we closed (she actually came to our new home just to see it after we moved in) and we feel well taken care of. Overall we're really happy with the service we continue to receive and would recommend Suzette to anyone. She is experienced, professional, finds joy in service and can truly be trusted-what more could anyone ask for. We were truly blessed to have found Suzette and I hope that anyone reading this would be so lucky as to use her and find for yourself what good hands you will be in.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Westlake, Los Angeles, CA.

Suzette helped us to see our condo and buy a new one. She is a dedicated professional and a warm and lovely person to work with. She is very knowledgable on the real estate market and financing options available. I love this lady and not everyone can say that about their former realtor!
