Thank you for your submission!
After growing up with a mom who is a realtor, I admittedly have high standards, and so after having a poor experience with another realtor, I was concerned with finding someone proficient and qualified. I found Sue by submitting an inquiry online. We chatted on the phone and immediately I felt comfortable with her. From that moment she was ON IT. She set me up with listing notifications, and as soon as I arrived in San Diego (I was moving from Colorado) we looked at a bunch of houses. Within a week I put an offer in and it was accepted over multiple other offers. Sue was tremendously instrumental in this success. We closed in 16 days, a day early on a 17 day close! My lender even said that my realtor was a key role in the ease and flow; he works with a lot of realtors and was super impressed with Sue. Now I am happy in my new house in La Mesa, and Sue is still available and helpful to me getting acquainted to the area (and some unfinished items from the seller during the sale). She has always been super responsive, and is clearly well versed and experienced in this highly competitive San Diego real estate market. If you want a qualified realtor who is also fun to work with, then call Sue. You won't regret it!
The first time that I tried to buy a home, I used a different agent who talked me into buying a short sale. I didn't get the place because I felt that the realtor was not prepared with everything needed to close on the house and regretted it. It seemed that he was not out for my best interest, but Sue was a much better Realtor and made me feel like she had my best interest in mind. I have a very busy schedule and it was hard for me to find time to look at properties and Sue was able to accommodate my busy schedule. She also was very organized and had multiple listing lined up for each outing looking at properties. Sue was very knowledgeable about every area that we checked out and there were a lot of different areas that I wanted to look at. She made buying my first home easy and helped me gain knowledge for the future. I will use her again in the future to buy or sell.
I recommend Sue if you're in need of buying a home. She is very responsive and capable. I first met her years ago at an open house. We met over coffee at Starbucks to go over the home buying process and after a few years we met again and I was able to purchase a home. Choose Sue if you want a personable and professional service.
In the Spring of 2017, my fiance' and I decided to get serious with pursuit of a new home to call our own. As we started the process, we met with two different Realtors, each of whom had been referred by personal friends. Surprisingly, neither seemed to express much interest and no initiative was shown by either agent. One Sunday, when one of the agents didn't want to go out I the rain, we ventured out on our own to look at open houses. That was the afternoon that would eventually prove to restore our faith in customer care and professionalism. We stopped by an open house being shown by Sue and I struck up a conversation with her. I explained what we had been faced with to date and with no sales pressure at all, Sue simply offered to be available to work with us on any level. That same week, I contacted Sue, we discussed our intentions, goals and timelines. It was obvious Sue was making note of everything discussed. Along the way Sue asked pertinent questions and offered practical suggestions. From that point, Sue worked closely with us and met with us weekly to visit possible homes from La Mesa to Escondido and areas in between. Sue extended every effort to accommodate our schedules. After several weeks of looking, we found the house that we now call our home. Sue's efforts didn't stop at heling us find the home. Once we realized we had found the house we wanted, Sue shifted gears, got and kept us on-track from submitting our offer, accompanying us through the inspection process and provided updates through the entire escrow process and beyond. Home buying is a daunting, time consuming and at times exhausting process. Sue's involvement with our transaction made it much easier to persevere and clear any hurdles that came up. Tenure does not always make a professional. It's the application of their experience and displaying a genuine care for the best interest of their client. Sue is a consummate professional who represents her clients with their best interest in mind. Attentive to all details, possessing all of the answers and willingness to ask the questions which need to be asked. Along with her knowledge of the Real Estate market, Sue approaches her role with a casual, flexible and personable demeanor. Truly, Sue is deserving nothing but the highest reference and recommendation.
My wife and I couldn't have more pleased with Sue during the whole process, from meeting her for the first time to the last meeting after the sale of our property. Her availability, work ethic, knowledge of the market were refreshing. I recommend her for sure.
Sue was amazing to work with from the start! She is very knowledgeable, professional, friendly and personable. I felt very comfortable knowing I had someone who truly cared about and represented my best interests, I trust her completely. Sue listened to me, made suggestions along the way, asked questions of owners/realtors that I wouldn't have thought of, and pointed out things in homes/areas we looked at that I hadn't seen/realized. She went out of her way to coordinate some things with the owners of the house I did purchase, due to the owner's realtor not being responsive, and she fought for me with the lending company when they made an error in my closing costs. Sue is someone with integrity and class. I will definitely use Sue again if I go to buy/sell and I highly recommend her to anyone.
I wanted to take a moment to confirm what a fantastic experience it was working with Sue. I was a first time home buyer still fairly new to the SD area and Sue was terrific at working with me patiently to look at a range of properties in different areas. Sue brought a lot of knowledge to the table about details I was not even thinking about. End result is we found a place that I was not even going to look at but Sue had paid attention to what I said I wanted and sure enough the house I was not even going to look at is now mine! I moved in last weekend and could not be happier. Thank you for being a terrific guide through a intimidating process, Sue was always available when I needed her and I always felt like we were working to my interest and benefit. Thank you Sue!!!!
If you are looking for a hard-working and seasoned RE professional, your search ends here! Hand her the keys or the list of what you are looking for, and your troubles are over. Sue is an exceptionally savvy & knowledgeable agent who knows all the details for completing the buy or sale. She is patient when listening to your concerns and offers sound advice and wisdom from many years of transaction experience. As far as knowledge of the pricing landscape, Sue has San Diego covered. We priced the home accurately and had plenty of interest. Sue is also very well connected to the other professionals you will need to complete the process (inspectors, staging, loan funding, escrow, repairs, etc). This is important. Sue is obviously well-respected by the people in this business. Sue knows how to shake the trees and get people moving. My buyer's agent was fairly new and didn't have a clue. Sue held her hand through the entire process, made the calls and faxes to the bank, and got the sale closed on time, (actually a few days ahead). She really should have received both commissions. Sue is instantly responsive to every question or email. Makes you feel like you are the only one she is focused on. I will absolutely request her services again when I am ready to buy. Thank you for changing my life! Let her help ease your buy/sale with her sincere commitment, knowledge and thoughtfulness.
My wife and I were an out of state seller and buyer. We used the services of Sue Forbes to sell our downtown condo and to purchase a detached home in San Diego. Sue always kept in touch with us and we believe Sue always had our best interests in mind. Sue was our eyes and ears and always was responsive to our real estate needs. We recommend her to all clients and especially to out of state clients looking for a home in San Diego. Sue was very informed of the market and professional at all time.
Sue was amazing in assisting my wife and I in purchasing our first home. If any veterans are reading this review, Sue is very knowledgeable when it comes to the VA loan process, and was able to identify a lender that fit our needs. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in purchasing a home. Her professionalism is unmatched!!!
