Suzanne was a pleasure to work with to sell our homes. She is experienced and very resourceful, most of all she is diligent making you feel your house is the only listing she has. Excellence equals Suzanne Geoffrion. K T -- ORINDA CONCORD
Suzanne was extremely helpful when we were looking for our new home. As my husband said, she "added value" when she came to look at houses with us. She pointed out problems with locations. She noticing construction and maintenance issues with venues. When we wanted to see a not-yet-on-the-market house, she contacted the seller -- who didn't have an agent -- directly and had us viewing it within a day. When we finally made an offer, she helped us determine our initial price, and guided us during the following negotiations. As the only agent involved in the process, we give her the credit for a quick and easy closing. She even brought us pizza on move-in day! We can't say enough positive things about her! G M – PLEASANT HILL
We just wanted to say thank you so much for being such a huge part of our lives and for helping us find our home. We all love the new house and perhaps Sophie loves it most of all. S E -- CLAYTON
We are so lucky to have found Suzanne as our agent for our home purchase. She is truly exceptional. She pinpointed immediately what we wanted and was a great advisor for the pros and cons of the houses we looked at. She didn’t suggest we look at a lot of properties that would not have been right for us. Suzanne was very quick to respond to all inquiries and sought out the details of disclosures statements that we would have missed and that ended up being important. She also led us through the quickest closing possible…less than 2 weeks, because we needed to move quickly. The entire process couldn’t have gone more smoothly and quickly. We would highly recommend Suzanne. J M -- ORINDA
I am writing to you to tell you how much I appreciated your expertise, professionalism and kindness. You really went the extra mile to see to it that my daughter was able to buy the place of her dreams! I feel that, of all the real estate agents I have worked with, and I have worked with numerous agents, you stand out as being one of the best. You gave good counsel, foresaw potential problems, and solved problems before they occurred. Thank you so much! JC - OAKLAND LOS ANGELES
Suzanne, always overextended herself in providing high quality customer service. My father utilized Suzanne in a prior real estate transaction. She excelled then and excelled now. I would recommend Suzanne to everyone whom is in need of real estate expertise. Suzanne was superb throughout the entire process. Especially when it came to the fireplace situation. Suzanne went to fireplace vendors to determine the price to install a gas insert. She went above and beyond. Impressive service. KT – WALNUT CREEK
Suzanne Geoffrion took me through the whole procedure just thinking about selling the house to the final sale. She guided me through the entire process very smoothly explaining every step and what I was signing. I have recommended her to all my friends. PM – ORINDA
She is amazing and so knowledgeable. She worked very hard on this and it is only a rental. Suzanne helped us with a search for the home that she now helped us to rent. This is our fourth home and she is hands down the BEST agent my husband and I have worked with. I have already referred a couple of people to her and will continue to do so. She is helpful, kind, smart, and hardworking! L M - ORINDA
We had the best experience with Suzanne! She was immensely attentive and worked diligently to ensure we paid a fair price for our first home. She truly was our advocate and went above beyond what we ever expected from a real estate agent. She is extremely competent and professional; we never once doubted her during the negotiation process, as she had evidently done her homework. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the East Bay area; we highly recommend her for all your real estate needs! M K – PLEASANT HILL
Suzanne was very honest about what work we should do on our home before putting it on the market. We were able to spend a very reasonable amount of money while getting our home ready for sale, and it completely transformed the look of the house inside and out. Additionally, she was very responsive with all of our (numerous) questions and went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable with how the whole process was going. Following her recommendations, we were able to sell our home for much more than we had ever anticipated. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!! ES – OAKLAND

We had the fiduciary responsibility to sell a very special home that our family had lived in for many years. We both agreed that we wanted to find the perfect buyer, someone that would appreciate and preserve this unique Space. Suzanne listened to our hopes, and listed it as "Little Cottage in the Canyon", She instilled confidence clarity with her knowledge and experience, guiding us every step of the way. Suzanne is truly a Professional, that has all the right connections and marketing skills. Knowing that she had our best interests in mind, was a relief and comfort. It was a Pleasure working with you Suzanne. Thank You so much, Debbie and Jacquie -- LAFAYETTE HAWAII

Suzanne Geoffrion was fantastic to work with. She made us feel as if we were her only clients. Suzanne's professionalism and positive attitude made this process so much easier. She knew her material and we felt that she provided much-needed advice to us as this was my first real estate purchase in California. I can't even begin to compare the experience to any of my prior purchases. We had some challenges with the seller on this transaction and the inspections uncovered several significant issues. Suzanne handled both the seller and his agent superbly. Tad, San Francisco
In a tough economy, Suzanne Geoffrion knew how to market my home and find qualified potential buyers. I went on vacation for 10 days and when I returned, my home was sold! Paolo, San Francisco
