Client Testimonials

...the gold standard for real estate brokers: knowledgeable, smart, honest to a fault, diligent, creative, and a strong negotiator, in addition to being a lot of fun to work with. Suzi was fantastic advising on bidding strategy, and after our bid was accepted, her contractor recommendations were all top quality. We can’t recommend her enough. - Kevin J., Orinda

My husband and I were conducting a property search from the east coast, and Suzi was so efficient, getting a real sense for our style and criteria over the phone so that when we came to town to look at homes with her, they were right in line with what we were looking for. She was also extremely helpful on educating us on the area, as well as current market trends. She dedicated entire weekends to our search and was so patient every step along the way. Suzi is creative, dedicated, honest, extremely knowledgeable, and passionate about what she does. Plus, she is incredibly personable and nice to be around. We give her the highest recommendation possible. - Sea C., Winchester, MA

Suzi has a confident easy grace about her and because she was raised in Orinda, she knows the nuances of every neighborhood and school. She knew when to give us the room to think and when we needed a nudge. And for the first time in the four homes we’ve bought over our marriage, I can finally say that I am in love with my house. The closing agent said that, “Suzi is known as one of the, if not the, best Realtor in the area.” Having worked with her for the past seven months, I completely agree. - Cara H., Orinda

I highly recommend Suzi for anyone relocating to the Lamorinda area, or simply in the market to buy or sell a home. Her detailed knowledge of the area, strong connections and easy manner make for a winning combination. - Ilene Wolf Moore, General Counsel at The Permanente Federation, LLC
