" Without Sue’s expertise and persistence, we truly believe our sale never would have closed as a short sale. She absolutely made all the difference in allowing us to move on and to start rebuilding. We will be forever grateful to her. "

"Sue works tirelessly for her clients. I don't think I've met another realtor with as much dedication to her clients and breadth of knowledge of the Marin housing market. I would recommend Sue to anyone, especially if they are looking to buy a short sale, or to list one. She was always compassionate to the people we met during our house hunt who were losing their homes. She truly understands all aspects of short sales. Needless to say, when the day comes to list our property, we'll be giving Sue a call."
-Brian Coley, Client
"We used Sue to buy our first house in Marin. She was exceptionally patient with us. We couldn't find anything first time around as the market was not in favor, but she stuck with us and as things turned in our favor, we were able to find a house. She always made herself available, taking me around to see homes on my lunch hour at work and then taking myself and my husband out on the weekends. She always had a great energy about her. She was able to help us make an offer that would be accepted and helped navigate through the negotiations, which was not so easy. I would highly recommend her! "

"Sue Paul has a great work ethic, is very knowledgeable in her field and goes the extra mile. I live in Colorado and have been trying to sell a property there so that I may purchase a second home in California. I have made 6 visits to California and Sue has spent countless hours driving me around looking at different areas to live and showing me property. She takes my calls and questions with a smile in her voice and responds to emails promptly. I feel with her help I have nailed down what areas I want to live in and what kind of property I want to purchase. Once my property sells I feel very confident Sue will help me find exactly what I want. I know she will hold my hand through the process and make the it go as smoothly as possible. I wouldn't even consider anyone but her helping me with this second home purchase. She's honest, trustworthy, and just a joy to work with!"
