"Amazing, I guess one word is good enough... However, since I have dealt with other Realtors and they were not a buyers only Realtor I have a good base for comparison. Suzanne was phenomenal . Her research and dedication to each and every property she showed me was amazing. I was shown over 31 pieces of property before I made my final decision. Not once did Suzanne waver in the level of professional detail involving each piece of property. Since there was NO dual agency involved, the work at hand was all about me, period! There was no time split between tending to the needs of other clients, namely a seller. I first learned of the concept of a buyers only Realtor through a Susie Oerman show I watched. I really lucked out when I met Suzanne. I lived 8 hours away and she immediately knew exactly what to do to help me make the transition to the area . Her exemplary attention to detail was over the top. I had no affiliation with her prior to my purchase. Just picked her out of the phone book, made the call, listened to the best reasons ever for choosing a buyers only representative. It was great to know that the business I was doing with Suzanne was really and truly all about me."
Suzanne was fantastic, made the entire process easy. With extensive accurate information upfront we knew exactly what we were going to see before we got there. Her understanding of the market and area helped select the houses to view much quicker than we had previously experienced with other realtors who seemed more interested in showing properties they were listing also. We would recommend Suzanne as a buyers only realtor over any conventional realtor as we knew she was focused on what we wanted..thanks for everything Suzanne!!!’ Gary and Karin
Thank you for guiding us in our search for a home in Orange County, CA. We hired you as a buyer broker to look out for our best interest and that is what you did.
Knowing that we were planning to move 8 months in advance made the process easier. You set us up with our own client gateway to the MLS so that we could really get to know the market well and the areas available to us. In that 8 month period you were always available to talk and answer any questions we had. You also showed us some homes even though we weren't ready to buy then. When the time came to purchase our home, you blocked off your time for us and organized, in depth, all the properties that we were interested in.
When looking at potential homes, we were very well informed to make a decision about different properties thanks to you.
The week that we were ready to buy, our house came on the market one night and having you available allowed us to get our new home that we love.
Not only did you assist in all the paperwork and offers, you also recommended mortgage people, that were outstanding and painters too.
Suzanne, thank you again. We highly recommend you as a buyers agent for any buyer looking for a home in CA. Your expertise, dedication, and honesty in your dealings were greatly appreciated.

Vicki and I wanted to say "thank you' for representing us in our recent purchase and saving us almost $30,000 off our purchase price ! Hopefully more people will find out there is a difference in being represented by an agent or broker who only works for the buyer, like yourself.
We never had to worry if the broker was working for the seller, since you never list homes or represent sellers. After working with regular agents or brokers in past purchases, we can see why you really stand out.You had our every interest in mind, as if it were your own.
Thanks for all of your help, the Polinko Family.
Just wanted to thank you for showing us around the area and various homes. It was a pleasure and we are looking forward to the move. I think at this point we really like the Fallbrook area and will more than likely purchase in that area once my transfer goes through. In the meantime we will continue to look at the gateway and call you if I see something that we would like to view. Again, thank you it was a completely different experience than we have grown to expect from a traditional realtor.
Have a great day,
John and Cynthia
We wanted to express our sincerest thanks to you for helping us purchase our first home in San Diego. Being first-time home buyers on a budget, it was important for us to find an agent who could not only help us locate a good home and guide us through the escrow process, but also be a true advocate on our behalf during the negotiation phase and be available for us when we needed support. Your skillful and tough negotiation resulted in a significant price reduction that truly worked for our budget. Also, we always felt you were there for us day and night... showing us properties, answering calls and emails, and guiding us through the entire home buying process.
There are so many other things we enjoyed and valued about working with you:
· Your enthusiasm and bubbly personality, which made the home buying process so much more enjoyable for us
· Your careful planning and organization for showings, including mapping out scenic driving routes to show us around the areas we were considering
· Your informative late-night e-mails, which really helped educate us during the process of buying our first place
· Your advice to make sure we did all the necessary due diligence on our fixer upper before taking the plunge
· Your help coordinating renovation contractors during the inspection phase, especially given that we both work full-time jobs during the week
· Your great contacts, including:
o Jack Clausen, a great home inspector that we could trust, and Trace, a talented mold dog!
o Tim Rellaford, an outstanding mortgage broker who worked hard to find us a great interest rate, and worked even harder to make sure the escrow process was successful
We knew we made the right choice selecting you as our true buyer's only agent. We always felt like you were looking out for us as if you were buying your own home. You have earned our confidence, trust, and our strong recommendation for any buyer looking for a home in San Diego.

its been a month or so since i purchased the home of my dreams. i still pinch myself to make sure it's not a dream. i owe a great deal to you for helping me find, negotiate and close on this home.
discovering you on the internet was truly a stroke of good fortune. i've been in real estate development for a long time and never really came across a 'buyers only' broker before. i decided to try your approach to buying after having just gone through a frustrating and unsuccessful offer on a open house i walked into. in the future i would not consider using any other process and would advise anyone purchasing a home to be represented only by a 'buyers only' broker. as i can now attest, its the only way a buyer can assure themselves of unbiased communication and negotiation with sellers.
initially, i did not understand why you needed time to prepare your 'notebook' when all i wanted to do was just look at property. what a surprise to discover that your notebook contains most of the information any analytical person such as myself could want when determining the relative value of homes i'm interested in. that notebook proved to be invaluable and an enormous timesaver, especially when we rushed to make a bid on what turned out to be my new home.
but the notebook was only one aspect of many that led to a successful closing. while many broker/agents claim to know their territory, i was truly impressed with your ability to advise, critique, and offer insight on over 50 homes we previewed in one weekend. i had such a long list of nearly impossible criteria, including price!!!!, yet you did not shy away from the challenge. and you steered me to a house that met all of them and more.
i know being from out of town and unfamiliar with the area also imposed even greater demands on you. but you never hesitated to investigate or do something totally beyond normal expectations.
during the offer/counter offer process, your persistence and professionalism helped us avoid a bidding war. in an industry constructed on conflicts of interest, it was also nice to observe your honesty and integrity in dealing with the seller's broker on my behalf.
for all these reasons and your always energetic pursuit of my goal, i will be forever grateful and an enthusiastic reference.
thank you once again.
