"SHE IS THE BEST! I highly recommend Sookie without any reservations. Sookie spent a lot of time and effort to prepare and optimize our property for sale. Her experience and connections minimized the cost of staging. Her advice on the timing of the listing was perfect. Through her network of connections she found the perfect buyer within few days and the house was sold at asking price. She handled all aspects of escrow and closing very smoothly. Her professionalism and dedication went way beyond my expectations. I had more than 15 previous real estate transactions during the past 20 years and this was by far the best experience! Thanks Sookie, You are the best!" - Dr. Nagi Sous

"Ms. Mathews sets and maintains high professional standards. I wouldn't think of letting anyone else handle a house sale for me. She sold a house for me and oversaw every detail from painting to landscaping, from staging to sale. She posted an online video showing a panorama of the house, view, and yard. She has access to skilled people, painters, for example, who can come in, get a job done economically and efficiently. This saved me time and money. Ms. Mathews was punctual to appointments and kept me informed of every offer, whether accepted or not, and when a buyer was found kept me informed of every step in the sale process. I found that working with Sookie was more of a collaboration rather than just a seller and agent relationship. I recommend her highly." - Harry Manors Physics Teacher

" ... Our family has done 7 real estate transactions with Sookie. Each time she has surpassed our expectations with her hard work and knowledge of the Real Estate business.

"We found Sookie Mathews to be a superb Realtor and can give her the highest recommendation, based on the way she handled the sale of our house this month. She has enormous energy and is totally trustworthy and competent. We entered into a pre-public offering agreement with a buyer that Sookie recommended to us, after we had hired her to represent us. This arrangement suited our needs, since it meant that if we could reach an agreement with this potential buyer, the transaction could go through faster than if we were to put the property on the market. We wanted speed and convenience. This put Sookie in the position of representing both parties, a role that she conducted with great skill, diplomacy and regard to confidentiality. I think, as a result, that we obtained the highest price for our sale that we could have wanted, especially given our time requirement. The inspections went smoothly, the appraisal gave no problems and escrow was routine. We now have a cordial relationship with the buyers, and Sookie has worked hard to make this a pleasant and efficient process. We have the highest regard for her." - Larry and Gaby Pryor

"Dear Sookie, Let me thank you for your outstanding professional and friendly representation regarding the very successful sale of our Highland Park residence that you had sold to us ten years previously. Being out-of-town owners you really went above and beyond handling repairs, workmen, and other issues we weren’t present to handle ourselves. Your advice and knowledge of the market were sound and prescient. Having been a practicing real estate broker in an earlier career, I know firsthand that you provided a level of service rarely seen in the profession. We’re so happy you have represented us so ably and successfully over these many years. You carry with you our gratitude and high regard. My wife, I, and our son are most happy to give you our enthusiastic highest recommendation without reservation. Continued success." - Keith Behner

"Sookie Mathews is an amazing agent and helped my wife and myself immensely in the purchase of our first home. She is very sharp and doesn't miss a thing. She inspected each house in which we expressed interest, driving to each one either meeting us or on her own, and gave us great advice based on the house's condition, location and value among other various points. Whenever I told her there was a house I wanted to see, she would make an appointment to see it that day or the next. She did not waste time and gave the utmost importance to each prospective purchase. She was also very patient and willing to wait and keep looking until the perfect house came along. When we found our perfect house. Sookie struck a very good deal. And she didn't stop there, always pushing the seller to do more and include more in the contract. She helped us get a home that we thought was out of our price range. We couldn't be happier. She was also very personable and a joy to work with. This was a great first experience in real estate and a large part of that is due to Sookie's hard work. We are very thankful to her" - Ryan and Romona Behner

"Sookie stayed with us for nearly one and a half years until we found our perfect home. She exactly understood what we were looking for and did a great job in screening homes that met our vision. She even went above and beyond during the escrow process. Sookie is incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated. I would definitely recommend Sookie." - Dr. and Mrs. Shyam Randeria

"It has been a pleasure working with Sookie. She's been in the industry for a long time and knew the area very well with lots of connections. I liked how she wasn't pushy to buy a house that was first shown in the market. She would provide her opinion of all the pros and cons of each house that we would see which I found that very honest of her. Once we decided on a house she was very prompt and as a first time buyer she would explain step by step and explaining all the terminology that I didn't understand. During our house search I needed to move to the rental temporarily as well which she was able to find and manage all the arrangements needed. I would definitely consider working with her again when the time comes." - J.Kim
