"We had the pleasure of working with Suzanne twice over the course of a few years. She was extremely professional, friendly and went out of her way to help us through the process. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home in the L.A./Santa Monica area. Before choosing a real estate agent, I conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on our needs. We were relocating to Los Angeles from N. Cal and had no knowledge of neighborhoods within the greater L.A. area. To top it off we were in N. Cal most of the time so we needed a realtor that would be actively engaged and willing to do a lot of footwork on our behalf rather than just adding us to their email communication listing that sends you homes for sale. Suzanne was the exact realtor we were looking for! She went out of her way to have regular conference calls with us so she could hear exactly what we were looking for. We had only had one day to fly down and look at properties so she weeded out anything that didn’t meet all of our needs. She did a fantastic job of listening to exactly what we wanted. In just one day we found exactly what we had in mind making the relocation process so streamlined. Being out of town she represented us at all our inspections as well. After 4 years of living in Los Angeles we found ourselves relocating back up to the Bay Area, so of course the first person we called was Suzanne to help us sell our L.A. home and again we received outstanding service. I had already relocated back to N. Cal with our children and my husband was flying a lot for work, so Suzanne handled all the pre-listing whatnots to get the house ready for the market and even staged the house herself for us! The home buying and selling process can be a very stressful time. Suzanne was so personal and made you feel like a family member was helping you through the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor in the Los Angeles/Santa Monica area."

"We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about the entire home purchase process. After countless heartbreaks being out-bidden, we gave up until we met Suzanne. She was referred to us by a family friend who spoke very highly about their experience with her. We thought we'd give this home purchase experience one last try. Suzanne was there every step of the way, answering our every call and email no matter how trivial it was, educating us with the entire process, and listening to our every request for information. In less than 3 months of working with her, we found ourselves opening escrow!!! Suzanne's knowledge, positivity, charisma and winning attitude sealed the deal! Suzanne has worked tirelessly with us all throughout the negotiation and helped us resolve every arising issue until closing. If the time ever comes when we will be looking for a new home, there isn't any doubt who our Realtor will be! "

"You can't put a price on a good agent! We met Suzanne when we bought our first condo in Santa Monica. She was always prepared, informed, and pleasant. We loved working with her so much we enlisted her help when we decided to move and sell. Once escrow is closed and we were ready to buy again, we knew Suzanne was the only agent we wanted to work with - even though we moved to Northern California. She handled the challenges of a long distance sale and curveballs through the holiday season like a true professional. We've done very well to trust her suggestions over the years. We are now in our dream home and just celebrated our first holiday here with our new baby."
- C. & S. Peterson

"We are a few days from closing, and writing this review before we get busy with our new home sweet home. A home that Suzanne made possible! Our family and children will enjoy this lovely home, and we wouldn't get it without her. It's a super hot sellers market now, and after making over 15+ offers with another agent and we still remained in our rental, we tried Suzanne out through a referral of a friend (thanks Rudy and Felicia). In just a little over 2 months with Suzanne we were in escrow! In today's hot market, it helps to have someone that knows there is more than just negotiating a fair price. She knows how to develop strong and professional relationships with sellers agents. She positions us in a way that we are serious and prepared. She finds out what the sellers are looking for in a buyer, and helps us focus on that angle. At first, I thought we would end up overpaying (it is a sellers market), but now we are in escrow for 25 days, I am looking at recently sold houses (those that we wanted to make an offer on), and we got a good deal on this. I still can't believe it until now. To all buyers especially now in 2022, especially those that lost out on over a dozen offers, make the switch to Suzanne, and let her do her magic. Just make sure to fasten your seat belts, and make sure you got all your pre-approvals and finances in order, coz things will happen so quick. Thanks again Suzanne for helping our family find a home.

"This is our second time using Suzanne's service, both me & my wife are very glad to have worked with her again. We started our search on June 2020 and finally found the one 5 months after, and Suzanne represented us well as a buyer in this crazy competitive market. At the same time, Suzanne also represented us to sell our our current home simultaneously. She offered great advices and professional service throughout the entire buying and selling process."
- Y. & Z. Chong

"Suzanne is very effective and easy to work with. From the first meeting, she impressed us by asking the right questions and intently listening to our requirements. She went away and developed a list of very relevant homes for us to look at. She made all the arrangements and met us in the morning to take us through the list. She did her research and was very knowledgeable about the home and the area that we were looking in. On our first outing together, we were able to put an offer on a home. She then proceeded to work the negotiations over the course of a few weeks and brought both parties to agreeable terms. From the time we met Suzanne to the time we closed escrow was less than 45 days. We have bought quite a few homes and this was the best experience by far. Highly recommend her if you want a realtor who listens to you, parse through tons of listings to find you a relevant short list, that acts in your best interest and is a solid problem solver and negotiator."
- D. Ngai

"We used Suzanne to sell our Playa Vista home and she is amazing. She is the consummate professional when it comes to putting her clients needs first. She met with us on very short notice and within hours of our decision to move forward with her, she showed up with items for staging, snapped amazing photos and listed the property the following day. She has a hands on personal approach to her work and doesn't use the cookie cutter approach that I've seen way too frequently in the neighborhood. Suzanne has a refreshingly calm and collected personality but is fierce in representing her clients. We will absolutely hire Suzanne again in the future and highly recommend her. "
- N. Ali

"Suzanne is a true real estate professional - detail-oriented, knowledgeable and friendly to work with. She was our agent when we purchased our home and proved to be an invaluable resource throughout the process. From our initial introduction until the post-close items were settled, she guided us through the purchase process, ensuring details that gave ys pause were clarified. Suzanne is organized, punctual and pleasant to work with. She is an effective listener and a strong communicator. It was a pleasure to work with Suzanne and I look forward to working with her in the future again."
- K. Katzman

"We worked with Suzanne for over a year to help buy, renovate, and sell our property. She is super helpful, experienced and professional. It was very easy to communicate with her via phone and email. She was also very honest and straightforward with her feedback and input, which was great in closing our deal. We would love to work with her again!"
- C. and I. Ling

"We had a wonderful experience buying a home with Suzanne. It was our first home purchase and in a very competitive market, but Suzanne helped us find a great home in our budget We highly recommend working with her. "
- E. Andre

"Suzanne was wonderful and a pleasure to work with. She helped us buy our first home. Her knowledge of the buyer process was extremely helpful and walked us through every step. Highly recommend working with her!"
- A. Guerard

"The first time we called Suzanne to inquire about the process, pricing, and situation on a new development that we are highly interested in purchasing, she is very very quick in helping us to obtain all the necessary information. Once we decided to move forward, Suzanne helped us to lock down the property at a price point that me & my husband both are very happy with, then we opened escrow, did pre-approval, inspection, and all other procedure that follows. Suzanne is very organized and on top of everything. She acts as a very professional & effective intermediary between us and the escrow/builder/developer/lender. Every concern of ours are addressed accurately to the other party, then answers to our concerns will be followed within minutes. We never have to contact Suzanne for any updates because she is very quick in providing the latest update of everything we should know, plus anything additional that we should be aware of. We are very appreciative of Suzanne's professional service and felt very lucky having her to represent us in every aspect throughout the process."

"As two working parents of young children, the idea of putting our condo on the market while in the process of buying a new house was daunting. It is fair to say that we could not have done it successfully without the help and guidance of Suzanne Chai. Not only did Suzanne help walk us through the details of purchasing a home, but she was full of recommendations for professionals to do everything from painting to inspecting. She helped us through the back and forth of negotiating a lower price. Her commitment didn’t end after the sale went through. When we needed someone to oversee work while we were out of town, she volunteered."
- Y. & E. Friedman

"Suzanne convinced me to buy my beautiful home last year, and now a year later I am still just as thrilled! I have recommended her to many of my friends. "

About Suzanne
I am Suzanne, and for me, real estate is more than transactions; it's about cultivating meaningful connections. Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and now rooted in the vibrant and diverse landscape of Los Angeles, I've spent over two decades blending cultures and languages to craft unforgettable experiences in real estate.

A Summa Cum Laude graduate in Business Administration from California State University of Fullerton, I've flourished across varied terrain of sales, cross-cultural communication, and contract negotiation. My passion for real estate is fueled by an entrepreneurial spirit and a commitment to building lifelong connections with clients who share my pursuit of a purposeful and well-lived life.

As a pioneer in integrating virtual reality and augmented reality into real estate, I redefine the boundaries of open houses, creating immersive experiences that transcend physical limitations. Inspired by mid-century modern aesthetics, I find solace in my home, nestled with a view of the iconic Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory, alongside my beloved 6-year-old rescue, Ellie.

Beyond real estate, I revel in the vibrant energy of Los Angeles, exploring its diverse neighborhoods and embracing its eclectic culture. An empty nester now, I embrace the rhythm of life's simple pleasures—Pilates, culinary explorations, and the boundless adventures that await. Join me on a journey where dreams take flight and possibilities know no bounds.
