  • Dear Suzi,

    I met with your clients, the Delgados, and they were talking about their realtor, and how impressed they were with you. They thought you were an amazing person, and they talked about how hard you worked for them, how you really tried for them in so many ways. They are just so in love with that house, I can’t believe it. They are very, very excited. I just wanted to let you know.

  • Working with Suzi Dailey and her team was an exceptional experience. I have bought and sold many homes over the years but she is the best I have ever worked with. She is very professional and knowledgeable. She brought in the resources and technology that were needed and always returned our phone calls. She was able to sell our 14,000 square-foot home in less than a six-month period which is amazing. I will use her again and I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to get their home sold in a quick, efficient manner. Plus, she’s just a very nice person.

  • Suzi, just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work. You’ve been amazing! Thanks so much for meeting with the inspectors, appraisers, builders, etc., etc. With us being out of town, this has been invaluable. Let’s crack open some champagne when this is finalized! We had a nice conversation with the builder you recommended. Looks like we may have our team for this project. I’m so excited!!!

    Many thanks,

  • We were very fortunate to have been introduced to and retain Suzi Dailey in our recent purchase of a Dana Point home. We live on the east coast and wanted to explore the coastal communities of South OC, but without the intent of buying at this time. We have family and work related obligations that will keep us from moving full time for awhile.

    Suzi spent 2 delightful days with us, showing us the different oceanfront communities. She took the time before we arrived to understand our needs and wants and presented us with numerous options. In those 2 days we found the perfect house for us and decided to move forward. Suzi was even able to locate a great architect on very short notice to inspect the house to help us understand some structural items we wanted to change. This was invaluable. While we hadn’t planned on buying at this time, we felt like we made a very informed decision due to Suzi’s knowledge of the area and markets.

    Suzi is as professional as anyone I have met in any walk of life and is equally as delightful. She handled every phase of the transaction with total competence, helped us negotiate a favorable price and handled many other aspects of the closing in our absence. She has even gone the extra mile(s) post closing. She located the original blue prints for the architect, put us in touch with all the service providers, showed us additional homes for design ideas…the list goes on.

    I have done many business and real estate transactions and this was handled as well as any I have been a part of. This is all due to the professionalism and wonderful personality of Suzi. I would strongly recommend her for any real estate transaction. She is exceptional.
