Testimonials
"Susan, choosing you to be our agent was the best thing we did! You made the whole home-selling process pleasant and painless. Many thanks to you and your team!"  N and J, Boston, MA

"Susan is an absolute gem of a realtor and a joy to work with - a knowing guide, staunch advocate, and kind soul. She truly has a gift for what she does and I unhesitatingly recommend her.
D.F., Kirkland

"I've worked with several real estate agents over the years, and I can say that Susan is BY FAR the most professional agent I've worked with.  We have purchased two properties with Susan's help, and we would not consider working with another realtor in the Seattle or Eastside area--no one else compares!" 
T and R, Issaquah

"We highly recommend Susan Gardner’s services when listing and/or purchasing real estate. We have done both with Susan - at the same time - and Susan’s diligence in managing our listing through tricky HOA dealings while coordinating the purchase of our new home, has been the best real estate agent experience in many years of buying and selling houses. Susan was able to keep all parties involved on track and was resourceful and tenacious when dealing with challenges along the way.   Susan’s natural inclination to go above and beyond, no matter what time of day (or night!) as well as her superb attention to detail; professionalism and follow through has made it a delight to have Susan on our side. !"  
K and P, Issaquah/Talus

"Susan Gardner is an amazing realtor who literally made miracles happen.  She provided unparalleled service and professional guidance through every step of the sale of my home and through the transaction.  She performs excellently under pressure, is a seasoned marketer, and a true pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend Susan if you want results!"   K.B., Issaquah

"This is our third transaction with Susan and we couldn't be more pleased!  She previously successfully marketed and sold our two properties in a struggling market, after two other realtors had tried to do so unsuccessfully.  When it was time for us to buy, she listened to our needs, and skillfully negotiated an amazing offer for us on a beautiful, high-end home.  Susan went the extra mile to assure a successful transaction in a win-win way.  We are absolutely confident in Susan and her abilities to represent us, both as a buyer's and a seller's agent.  Thank you, Susan, for being such an amazing realtor!"  M and R, Issaquah/Talus

"I just purchased a new house in Seattle through my real estate agent, Susan Gardner.  This is my seventh real estate purchase over the course of my adult life.  I must say that circumstances are much different now than when I purchased my last home a few years ago in Spokane.  Everything is stricter and requirements on several ends are more numerous.  In spite of all of that, Susan was very instrumental in allowing things to move along smoothly every step of the way.  I am particularly thankful for her flexibility in accommodating my schedule, as my work demands a lot of time which frequently is unpredictable.  Susan is very knowledgeable about real estate and all the necessary requirements, laws, and rules there are to comply with.  And she explained everything to me in a way that made it easy to understand.  She was also respectful of my needs and means, was very resourceful, and would get information to me in a timely fashion.  She had the capacity to understand what I was looking for and to “visualize” the home that I was envisioning. Thanks to Susan, this home purchase, which could have been stressful, was actually a fun, enjoyable and productive experience.  I would not hesitate in recommending her for your real estate needs."  D.S., Seattle

"Susan was a joy to work with!  She was very organized, and as first-time buyers, we felt at ease with her knowledge of the buying and selling process.  We had an atypical sale, but Susan continued to follow-up with the bank and other parties involved and made things work.  She went above and beyond in her service.  Without Susan we would not have found our new home, and at an excellent price.  We most definitely recommend Susan as an excellent agent and will use her again!"   C and S, Issaquah/Klahanie

"Susan helped me with the purchase of my seventh home.  Without her professionalism, perserverance, and understanding of the real estate industry, the deal would not have happened.  She is the consummate real estate professional."   J.F., Kirkland

"Susan was the most amazing realtor.  Her patience and hard work made it possible for us to find the perfect home.  We couldn't have done it without her.   We will be using Susan for all our future real estate needs."  C and B, Issaquah

"Not only is Susan an extremely kind person, she is exceptionally sharp and knowledgeable in her field.  Her follow-up and attention to detail is amazing.  She dug for extra information that proved to be very helpful.  She tracked my deal all the way from earnest money through closing, and made sure it stayed on schedule.  The amazing thing is I didn't know her until I met her at an open house and now consider her a friend and someone I can truly count on."  M.L., Kirkland

"We couldn't have asked for a better agent than Susan!  She was always available to help us out, whether early in the morning or late in the evening.  Plus she really went to bat for us when our bank tried to overcharge us, saving us a good chunk of change.  Thanks, Susan, for working so hard to get us the best deal possible!"   C and B, Renton

"On a scale of 1 to 10, we would give Susan a 20!"  D and S, Issaquah

"I am writing this to express my appreciation to my favorite real estate agent, Susan Gardner of Keller Williams Realty, who helped me to buy a short sale condo near downtown Bellevue.  There were many challenging factors involved with this purchase.  Susan helped me tackle the problems one-by-one, contacting everyone and collecting very valuable information.  She set me up on a schedule, and I was able to understand the purchase process with her helpful support.  She is really dedicated to her profession and is a very responsible agent, even leaving me her hotel phone number when she was on vacation.  She really wanted to help me with the purchase.  She has very good people skills and connected all the dots between the HOA, short sale negotiator, my loan officer, the title officer, and inspector.  Together we were able to close within 20 days after the short sale approval.  I have to say that I would not have been able to purchase this great condo at such a good price without Susan's help.  Even the short sale negotiator said, "The last short sale BOA approved on this home was $200k last October, but it failed to close so Mr. Ng is getting quite a deal now at $165k."  H.N., Bellevue

"Susan was an absolute pleasure to work with.  Working with her was so comfortable because she quickly learned what kind of home we wanted and she made us feel like we were her only client.  As first-time homebuyers, we wouldn't have felt so comfortable and knowledgeable during the home buying process if it weren't for Susan being there every step of the way and every time we needed her."  S and B, Bellevue/Microsoft area

"Susan has a deep understanding of the real estate industry, embraces any challenge, is incredibly detailed, and has the highest level of integrity.  I would trust her with my own home purchase or sale."  Shari Jansen, Former Team Leader, Keller Williams Realty Bellevue

"Susan is a pleasure to work with, and is very diligent and caring.  When we have questions, we have noticed that she takes very good notes and then provides us with complete and detailed answers.  She is very capable and has been successful in finding some excellent deals for us.  We really enjoy working with her, and we would definitely recommend her to our friends and family."  M and S, Bellevue/Lakemont

"Susan was a joy to work with in the purchase of our Lakemont home.  She was prompt and professional.  She had a positive mindset, yet remained realistic.  She followed up on every detail and made sure that the entire process went as smoothly as possible.  We highly recommend her!"  W and M, Bellevue/Lakemont

"We couldn't have asked for a better agent than Susan!  She was always available to help us out, whether early in the morning or late in the evening.  Plus she really went to bat for us when our bank tried to overcharge us, saving us a good chunk of change.  Thanks, Susan, for working so hard to get us the best deal possible!"   C and B, Renton

"Susan has been extremely diligent in managing the listing of our Bellevue home.  We are very experienced property owners and have worked with many realtors in the past.  Susan is definitely the most caring and attentive we've worked with.  Her client's interests are always foremost in her mind.  We have no reservations in recommending Susan as your first choice, whether you are listing a property or are looking for a place to call home." 
M and L, Gig Harbor
