I was a first-time home buyer and had no idea what I was getting myself into. Luckily, I had Suzanne as my real estate agent. She showed me a wide range of homes that allowed me to fully see the different quality of homes at a given price point, which helped me narrow my search down and not waste any time. She took the time to talk to me and understand my lifestyle and who I am as a person and used those conversations to find houses that she knew I would like. Not only that, but was very knowledgeable about the St. Louis area and the many different neighborhoods which was a plus given that I was moving from out of state. After I found my new home, she made the process of purchasing it go smoothly. She explained everything during the process and did not leave out any details. Any time I had a question, she was there with an answer. She made sure the contract was good and fair for me and represented me well during the process. She was even there for the home inspection and asked numerous questions and made sure everything was perfect. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a house in the St. Louis area.
She was absolutely amazing. She would not let us settle for a house we weren’t in love with. She was there every step of the way and always answered our questions! Very knowledgeable person who cares about you. I will not use anyone else.
I contacted Suzanne's office a number of years ago as a cold call and she happened to answer the phone. We had a rental home in the Pasadena Hills area of St. Louis that we wanted to sell. Little did each of us know we were embarking on a journey that would take several years.
The real estate market in the area was depressed and after several months of slow sale activity we decided to rent the property. Suzanne found us a great couple who were ideal tenants for about five years. Suzanne handled the lease transaction and subsequent renewals for us for what seemed little compensation. When the lease expired we decided to explore a sale of the property again. After the great service we had gotten from Suzanne we wanted only her to list the property for sale.
After reviewing the market conditions with Suzanne, we decided the property needed refreshing and updating. Being out of town owners we relied on Suzanne to find qualified vendors to do this work and oversee the project to completion. The updating came out great and the property was entered in all the appropriate data bases and was soon under contract. Suzanne was the ultimate pro and walked us thru the whole process arriving at a fair price and time frame for both parties. We could not have been happier with the way Suzanne represented us and for the professional way she represented her company. We would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone contemplating a sale or purchase in the St. Louis area.
She was very good at making sure the deal we wanted closed! She made sure we understood what every last step would take and got us past any bumps along the way.
She was absolutely wonderful. Very knowledgeable in her field and helped us understand what was going. We were first time home buyers and were feeling pretty overwhelmed and she was always there to calm us and explain things to us. We highly highly recommend her.
Suzanne helped us negotiate the sale of our home and we got the price we were aiming to get. We followed her advice to seriously declutter our house, do some minor touch-up repairs & cleaning, and her expertise in such matters really helped. Our small home looked much bigger and cleaner. It showed well and went under contract quickly even during the busy holidays. Closing took place on time.
Suzanne was very helpful in our purchase of a foreclosed home. Her knowledge & years of experience in such matters helped guide us through a difficult process, and helped us negotiate for repairs. She's very thorough in detailing what the issues are, problem solving, and following through. She diligently kept on top of things, kept us updated, stayed in touch, returned our calls and answered our questions in a timely manner.
If you've never bought foreclosed property I highly recommend Suzanne to guide you through the process.
Suzanne truly cares about her clients. We had an agent prior to her that really took advantage of us. My mom used Suzanne as her agent when purchasing her home, and suggested us just to talk with her because she was the best. She guided us through the process of cutting ties with that agent when she didn't have a commitment from us that we would use her instead. We did sign with her because of her extensive knowledge of real estate and obvious desire to do what's best for her clients. She made such a stressful experience go extremely smooth. Any question we had she answered, and if she wasn't sure she checked with her broker. Suzanne was very responsive to any need we had. I can't imagine using anyone but her. I strongly encourage anyone to sign with Suzanne!
As a first-time homebuyer and a lifetime haver of anxiety, I entered into the process of purchasing a house with an unnerving amount of questions, stress, and preconceived notions about "How to Buy a Home."
I randomly called Suzanne on a Saturday morning to request a showing at a place in Dogtown and—to my surprise—she made herself available to see the home that afternoon. She met us right on time, joined me for the initial turn around the room to point out highlights and pitfalls, and promptly told me that I could do better.
I had no idea! That there were homes—much, much nicer homes—that could suit both my budget and my lifestyle had not once crossed my inexperienced mind. There had to be a tradeoff, right?
"Wrong," said Suzanne. "We're going to find the place that's right for you and we aren't going to settle." And so began our two-month whirlwind affair with every available property in the city under 200 grand. We climbed harrowing stairs, scoped out spider-infested garages, stood in horror-movie-approved attic spaces, and met at all hours of the day. Suzanne was up for anything, knew about everything, and always took the time to meet me when my schedule allowed. From February through May, I talked to Suzanne on the phone more than I talked to my blood relatives and I gotta be honest, sometimes I preferred it!
Suzanne encouraged and empowered me to feel confident in my decision. At every home we discussed positives, potential, and price, and if they didn't line up we moved on. So when we found the perfect one—and I say "we" because it would have been impossible without Suzanne—we both knew it. I closed in May and haven't regretted the decision once, which is more than I can say about 99 percent of the choices I make on a daily basis.
From our first call to closing, Suzanne was my advocate, my real estate/mortgage translator, and my support system. I came into this process knowing nothing and finished knowing Suzanne. That alone made my first home purchase a success.
Suzanne is a treat to work with! I've bought three houses now and the process of buying this one was the easiest, by far. Suzanne was very responsive, not AT ALL pushy, and absolutely willing to go to bat for me with all of my questions and concerns. In fact, I ended up having to do most of the steps related to closing while I was out of the country...and Suzanne made sure that everything was done well and on time. I would definitely recommend her!
Suzanne worked very closely with us on a corporate move, working with us almost a straight week to find our place. Then after the sale helped keep an eye on the house construction to make a tight closing date.
I am a first time home buyer. I hired Suzanne Abbott as my realtor after hearing great things from friends and family about their experiences with her. Before I hired her, I had dealt with a terrible experience with another realtor, that really left me with a sour taste on hiring another. I was confidently reassured that my experience with her would be completely the opposite.
She really turned things around for me! She was very professional in every way. I was able to depend on her to follow through, be very responsive at all times, and constantly stay on top of things. She did an amazing job preparing me for every step of the home buying process. She was very thorough,making sure that everything was done quickly and efficiently. She made sure to pay attention to our needs, while at the same time, given her experience, she was able to give us her professional opinion to help steer me into the right direction. She worked diligently to find our family a perfect home! I highly recommend Suzanne to anyone who wants a truly amazing home buying experience!
Suzanne proved responsive, prompt, and easy to work with. Her knowledge of the local market was quintessential in closing on my first home. While I quickly recommend her to anyone currently navigating the first time buying process, I suspect her skill set will benefit both novice and experienced buyers and sellers alike. At the end of the day she genuinely cares to ensure you're satisfied with the transaction. Needless to say, I will not be looking for another realtor anytime soon and am looking forward to working with Suzanne again in the future.
2018 Update: I worked with Suzanne to purchase another property! Although this purchase didn't go quite as smoothly as our first (through no fault of Suzanne!), she remained helpful and diligent throughout. She was essential in helping me nab a great deal. Thank you Suzanne!
From the beginning of searching for a home to finally calling it mine, Suzanne helped me score a big touchdown with my first home. I definitely recommend her for Veterans that are looking for homes that are VA approved. She made tough negotiations work by getting the seller to repair major items on time according to closing schedule. Im so happy I got to work with Suzanne!

All may not be aware that Zillow provides the final closing sales price, void of specifics for previous sales (e.g., sales price inclusive of closing cost paid by the seller for the buyer).
Also, Zillow does not note if a purchaser paid for a repair above the recent sale price in order for the home to close without being subject to a mechanic lien.
On the day, my husband and I purchased our new home, if it had not been for Suzanne’s caring more about her clients than her 6% commission, closing would not have occurred.
Properties do not always appraise for the amount that the collective parties involved in a real estate sales transaction would like. Not for sellers wanting to move on, agents only thinking about 6%, and purchasers who would like the sales price to include closing cost.
SUZANNE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR HER CLIENTS, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND WILL CONTINUE TOO!
Has been my realtor for 6 months now. Has been extremely unprofessional and lacks knowledge of deal making. She gives only bits and pieces of info and I can assure you she is looking out for herself and herself only.I can promise you if you do decide to use her as your agent she is not worthy of such a decision. Thank god the process is now over and I assure you had I not been in a contract with her I would have fired her long ago. Look at price of home when I bought it 3 yrs ago. I hire her to sell it 3 yrs later and I lose money!!!! She was late to open houses, constantly fed me bad info, and most importantly she is unethical. Stay away..... Do your homework. This is why she has very listings and again is only concerned about making her 6%..
I enjoyed very much working with Suzanne. She Is very good at what she does and stays on top of everything. I would hire her again to Sell my house but I have know moved to another state. I would recommend her to any one if you want a agent that is going to work for you and get results.
Suzanne was excellent. We had a small budget, but she attended to us like the commission was much more lucrative. She was very patient through about twenty showings. When we found the right one, she negotiated us a great deal. Would highly recommend working with this agent.
We recently just purchased our first home, and as first time homebuyers we must have looked at dozens of houses before finding the perfect one... Suzanne was so patient with our search and extremely knowledgeable about good neighborhoods and the best areas. Suzanne did an outstanding job making sure all the deadlines were met on time and was always there to answer my phone calls and questions. She was on top of everything from start to finish, and got us the home we wanted at a great price, and we couldn't be happier! :)
Suzanne was always eager to go house shopping with me and helped me find the right house. She is very knowledegable about the St. Louis market and was willing to share that knowledge to guide me through the buying process. I definitely recommend her services for both buyers and sellers.
Suzanne was extremely helpful in navigating our first house buying experience. Not only did she have a good understanding of the process, but helped us to get all the pieces together, including a lender who preapproved us. If you are looking for a professional who can help you navigate today's market, Suzanne is your person.
Suzanne was a wonderful realtor! She made the experience of buying and selling easy and seamless. I have used her for several transactions and have recommended her to others that were just as please with her performance as I. She has been my realtor since 2003 and assisted me again in 2008 and 2009.
Suzanne is an exemplary agent and the perfect solution for first time home buyers. She is more than willing to go the extra mile to get her clients in the house of their dreams for the best price possible. Often she will take potential clients all over town on her search, or e-mail them the second a new listing becomes available.
Whether it's online, over the phone or driving around town, she will go the distance to iron out every last detail. She always has her phone on and returns calls immediately in the rare instances she was unable to answer. While other agents might flake out or prioritize wealthier clients, I always felt that she was working just for me.
As a first time home buyer overwhelmed by the process at times, I found her knowledge of the process to be very thorough. She explained each document to us in plain English and kept us updated every step of the way. Thanks to her diligence and expertise, we found the perfect house in our dream neighborhood and all of our requests met. Thanks, Suzanne!
Suzanne was an excellent agent and ensured that my transactions were handled very efficiently.
Suzanne was so helpful in my search for a new home and getting the deal closed on my purchase. She listened to what I was looking for and focused her search on properties that meet my criteria. She was always available and responsive to my questions and concerns.
I highly recommend Suzanne as a highly qualified helpful real estate agent.
