We found Suzanne to be very professional & knowledgeable, a pleasure to work with. She helped us through a very difficult time, & we will always be grateful for her patience & support. Carol & Wally ~ Carol Alter Aoki
You are so smart, hip, passionate, techy, funny, and relatable. You have a passion for real estate and you take it seriously but have fun with it! ~ Emily D.
You are a person who is passionate about being a realtor and connecting the right clients with the right properties. You are intelligent, energetic and worldly, but also grounded, thoughtful and charming. Your sense of humor tends towards the zany and you are always willing to take on a challenge, even if it means getting sweaty/wet/dusty/ - but somehow you still manage to end up smiling and looking glamorous. You will go across town or across the country if that's what it takes to get the deal done. You are a pleasure to work with. ~ C.B.
Suzanne went above and beyond for us. She stored my son's car for us and met the truck delivery guy, since we could not get into the house early, and the car arrived from across country earlier than expected. Suzanne was quick on her feet, met the delivery guy there in less than 20 mins and paid cash for the car delivery, which I reimbursed her for later. Agreeing the car would not be safe on the street, considering it had tons of valuables inside it, she agreed to store it at her place for the next couple days in her garage. During the close, she drove the car to meet my son at the airport to pick him up and take him to his new home. Being far away, she has managed to help out with random tasks concerning the house and has since helped us rent it out too, as a vacation rental. Suzanne really cares about her clients, and goes above and beyond for them. I have bought and sold properties all over the US and have never had a real estate agent do so much for me as Suzanne has. ~ N.P.
Suzanne flew to Paris for 3 days from LA to coordinate the signing of all the listing paperwork and go over the marketing plan for selling my estate in Brentwood. I think I'll leave the testimonial at that. How many real estate agents would fly to Paris last minute to go over paperwork and marketing? We are in current discussions for her to fly out to Hong Kong to discuss the possible sale of my Santa Barbara estate, and she has driven up to Santa Barbara numerous times last minute to talk about various real estate ventures. ~ Jill D.
Suzanne saved my house from foreclosure and got me $5,000 cash back from the bank. She made the process easy and as comfortable as possible, considering the circumstances. ~ Frank P.
Suzanne drove down with us to San Diego every Saturday for 2 months, until we found the perfect home. We originally were thinking of buying in Orange County, but Suzanne identified that with our needs, San Diego was a better fit. She put aside her other business to take care of us and do the long drives to find us a home. ~ Sergio and Lorena
Shannon and I were first time home buyers when we met Suzanne. We really had no idea what we were getting into, but Suzanne was able to not only help us find the house we now have and love, but was able to maneuver us through the complexities of FHA requirements. Suzanne’s drive and professionalism was clear while supporting all of our first time home buyer questions. She was available to meet with us early in the day, late and night, and updated us constantly anytime we had news on offers or if additional documentation was required. Her access and aptitude with technology greatly improved our changes at getting looks into homes we were interested in as well as identifying quickly if a house was or wasn’t for us. The housing market isn’t like what they have on the TV shows on cable. We learned quickly that we were mostly dealing with Short Sales and Bank Owned Properties. Eventually she identified an Owner Equity property in our price range. We jumped at the opportunity with an offer, which was accepted! Suzanne was diligent in explaining to us in terms we could understand what was needed and when. She worked closely with our Lender and Escrow to let us know what documents were needed, getting our inspections done quickly and being aware of any issue we could encounter going forward. With the erratic nature of the current Real Estate market, Suzanne Wilson is a positive, knowledgeable and dedicated Agent, who has the technology and resources to put your bid to the top of Selling Agents’ lists. She will get you in the house you want, for what you want to pay, and will do so with top level professionalism and service. Sincerely, Shannon Phillips and Chris Tylutki ~ Chris Tylutki and Shannon Phillips
Suzanne represented me as a buyer in 2010 and a seller in 2012. Before I met Suzanne, I worked with 2 agents, which I both fired. When I was moving on to agent number 3, I interviewed a handful of agents. Suzanne was one of them. I found her off of one of her listings on Immediately I knew she was the agent for me. Unlike most real estate agents, Suzanne was honest, warm, intelligent and not high pressure sales. Me and my then boyfriend had to take a 6 month break to purchase, after Suzanne had already put in a lot of effort. She made us feel at ease and no pressure and just said whenever you are ready, I am here for you, and placed us with one of her preferred lenders to get us on the right track to buy as quickly as possible. Her and the lender kept working with us during those 6 months. As soon as we got the green light to purchase, we had an accepted offer on a short sale and a few weeks later we closed. Fast forward to 2012 and I had to liquidate everything and sell the condo I bought with my then ex-fiance, plus tackle a move to Puerto Rico. Suzanne not only helped me coordinate everything with my move, like helping me drive over to the Post Office and unload all my boxes to ship to PR, but got my place ready to sell quick. It sold in a day with multiple offers, and got the highest price since 2007 in that community. It was like a scene from Million Dollar Listing. She threw a lavish party which drew tons of people and then had people waiting outside the house while each agent presented their offer. I took the highest offer that was a loan, versus the 3rd highest offer that was cash. She explained the pros and cons of both offers and if I took the offers with loans, it most likely would not appraise at full value. We wrote in a clause for the buyer to pay the difference in appraised value since we had multiple offers, but also worked hard to get it appraised at value. Suzanne explained to me you sell a house twice when you have an offer that has a loan involved. Once to a buyer and again to the appraiser, and the second time is the hardest. I was there during the appraisal and I couldn't believe how persuasive she was with the appraiser. She convinced him to accept the higher priced comps in a different city, claiming they should count because they were less than a mile away. After much debate back and forth, he finally agreed. Both as a buyer and a seller, both experiences were smooth and easy. I was going through a difficult time when I sold my home, and Suzanne made it as effortless as possible for me, and reassured me everything was going to be okay through the whole process and was there for me every step of the way. I would highly recommend Suzanne for any of your real estate needs. If I move back to California, I would obviously use Suzanne again. ~ Jennifer Palm (Formerly D'Auguste)
Thank you Suzanne Wilson for selling our house in a record breaking 1 day! Holy hell, you are an amazing real estate agent turned awesome friend. Love you so much!! ~ Cam P.
My condo sold in 4 days, with 12 offers, all over asking. She threw the coolest Sprinkles Cupcakes Launch Party too and even gave us some of the leftovers. ~ Jenny C.
Suzanne is very knowlegeble in all aspects of real estate and always fast to follow thru. We have worked with her on the sale of two homes and purchase of two homes and have been very happy. Both times sold our home for over asking. She is always very good about getting right back to you which was so nice with the stress of buying and selling. I strongly recommend her! ~ Gary & Becky Rhinehart
I've worked with Suzanne Wilson on numerous occasions and whether I'm buying or selling in California or NYC, Suzanne and The Suzanne Wilson Team is my one and only call. From our pre-listing meeting, where she presents her first-class marketing strategies, all the way through to closing say, she handles everything with the utmost professionalism and timeliness. Her abilities go above and beyond, as she is always reachable, responsive, attentive, and best of all, she is an extremely hard worker. I was never waiting for a call or email from her- SHE'S ON IT- ALWAYS! She was so impressive that I contacted her for a referral to handle my real estate in New England and down South, as I feel is anyone she refers is half as good as her, they're still amazing ~ Jennifer & Chris Palm
Suzanne took over the sale of my condo from a previous real estate agent. It had been sitting on the market for well over a 100 days. All the other real estate agent wanted to do was for me to drop the price. That realtor knew Suzanne & brought her in to help out. After Suzanne came aboard, my condo in less than a week! ~ Sunita C.
