There is Always a Market for the Exceptional


Andrew and Sharon Ashton

Susan worked with us on the sale of our home and purchase of our new home in Blackhawk Country Club. From start to end, Susan was professional, committed to the process and she put us first. Her guidance through the process was second to none and we would not hesitate to work with her again!

I’ve bought and sold numerous properties. Susan is by far the most diligent and professional agent I have ever worked with. Her wonderful demeanor and can do attitude makes one feel at ease. Susan is a domain expert who can set realistic expectations for both buyers and sellers creating a win/win even in tough times.

I have only two requirements for people on my financial/real estate team. Unquestionable competence. Client comes first. My experience with Susan hit those requirements head on. She handled EVERY element of the transaction, including some that were not her responsibility and communicated with me every step of the way. Couldn’t have been more pleased and recommend her without condition.

“While we always intended to return to the beautiful Bay Area after graduating from Stanford, we ended up spending more than 20 years in New York, London and Tokyo before finally having the opportunity to move here permanently. Having been away for so long, we were initially a bit apprehensive about navigating the local real estate market and had few contacts to provide support. After interviewing a variety of realtors, we immediately knew Susan Bazinett was the perfect choice for us from the moment we met her. The incredible breadth and depth of her experience in the real market here was invaluable to our search for our dream home, and her execution skills were flawless when it came to closing the transaction. Susan possesses an extraordinary passion for the real estate business, and it was a true pleasure to work with her throughout the entire process from beginning to end.”

We hired Susan after one interview and were very pleased with her ability to correctly position the property, accomplish our desired type of transaction, and produce results within 8 days of listing the property. We were delighted with all phases of the transaction and interaction with Susan and her team……..true professionals. We would gladly recommend Susan to anyone interested in a productive and high quality real estate experience.

Susan is the most professional and highest quality real estate person we have had the chance to work with (and there have been many). Her work ethic and communication skills are outstanding. Her knowledge and ability to finesse situations (easy and difficult) always kept everyone happy. We can not recommend Susan highly enough and would tell anyone selling a home (if you live in it or across the country like us) that Susan is your person.

Susan Bazinett is a top quality real estate broker in the Bay Area. Susan helped sell our last home in Blackhawk Country Club, as we moved out of the area for a short while. When we returned to Blackhawk Country Club we knew exactly who to have represent us, and true to her nature, it was the best transaction yet. Thanks Susan for finding us our lifetime home.

I first met Susan back in 2004 and had the pleasure of having her represent me during the sale of my home. Some of the qualities that I enjoyed most about working with Susan was her response time, sense of urgency, her professionalism, her knowledge of the market and how to correctly price our home. The list of attributes that Susan embodies are numerous.

Selling a home can be an overwhelming process, but Susan makes the process straightforward. Nine years later, I was ready to sell my home once again, and the choice was a simple one.

On both occasions, Susan was able to sell my home in under a month. This is a testament to her knowledge of knowing how to price and market a home. What impressed me most about working with Susan this time around is that she was dialed in from a web based perspective. Marketing a home in this day and age requires for a Realtor to be tapping into the various web based portals that buyers are surfing on the web and Susan had capitalized on these forums. Additionally, with my hectic travel schedule for work, more than 95% of the paperwork that required my signatures and approval were conducted on my smartphone. The process was extremely efficient and smooth. And, of course, walking me through the process once again was my very qualified real estate Broker, Susan Bazinett.

Consider it sold, the minute you sign on with Susan!

Best Regards,

Susan has represented us both, as buyers and sellers, many times over the past decade, both in good markets and in back. No matter the market, Susan has consistently demonstrated to us her undying passion to do the best possible job for us, with absolute client focus and loyalty.

Susan is an incredible negotiator. She has expert pricing skills and confidence. As important, she is a great executor. She manages all the details associated with buying and selling a home in today’s competitive environment – taking much the burden and worry away.

Our most recent purchase and sale was at 2757 Deer Meadow Drive in Blackhawk Country Club. Both were corporate relocation moves, increasing the intricacies and demands.

She helped us jointly set an effective strategy for selling our home for the most money and in the timeframe we needed to operate within. She accomplished that through her extensive marketing prowess. She also made any difficulties of working with the extra layers of a relocation company transparent to us.

We unfortunately could not find “a Susan” when recently buying out of state. It has ultimately cost us much more money, time and energy than it would have it we could have
found another Susan.

We miss you Susan!!

Working with Susan Bazinett in the sale of our Blackhawk home was a pleasure. Susan and her team worked tirelessly in a difficult housing climate to achieve the maximum fair price for our property. When we purchased the home, Susan was the listing agent and our buyer’s agent recommended her as one of the most hardworking and ethical people in the real estate business.

We had called Susan a year earlier to discuss selling our house and she recommended waiting, if possible, because of the large inventory available due to foreclosures which hit California. She promised to advise us when she saw improvement and she kept her promise.

Since we spent a considerable amount of time traveling, Susan’s contacts with contractors helped with the repairs needed to get the house ready for sale. She often accepted the responsibility of making sure the work was completed on time and that they always met her exacting standards.

We were kept apprised of all sales efforts by email, phone and text messages from Susan or a member of her team. Every week we received and email with charts detailing of all the sites on which our property was listed, the interest shown on each sight and how it compared to previous weeks. Susan and her associates conducted weekly open houses and followed up with people or agents who visited until the home sold.

We are pleased to recommend Susan to anyone buying or selling a home. Working with her far exceeded our expectations. While some agents were focused on turning a house quickly even at a low price, Susan was focused on helping us achieve the maximum fair value for our home. Her guidance and advice were always timely and accurate. She is a true professional, working to help her clients through a difficult process with the least amount of stress.
