“Suzanne was wonderful from the first house she showed us. She listened to our needs as well as our wants. She was was honest about places that would not work so we didn’t waste time viewing. When we found our house she worked hard to get us the property and to keep us up to date throughout the process. Will gladly work with her again in the future.”

“We can’t say enough about how wonderful Suzanne was during our recent home search through to closing. She listened attentively and showed us everything, and then some, without pushing. We were looking for a fixer upper and she was able to assist us in ways that only a truly dedicated and well connected realtor could. She was always available and professional. We not only have a realtor we can trust, but a new neighbor as well!”

Our experience with Suzanne could not have been better, start to finish. Suzanne exemplifies what to expect when hiring a top notch realtor and she is! There needs to be a comfort level between the seller and realtor. Right away, first impressions all the way around were great! Everybody involved in the sale of the house felt comfortable, safe and our parents’ estate was in very capable, caring hands with her. We did interview other realtors but none compared to Suzanne. Suzanne gave us the ability to list the property in the higher range of property value while others balked at that idea, suggesting it was worth much less. We did in fact, come down in price to what the market could bear at the time. However, we did end up selling the house at almost $30,000 more than the other realtors had suggested it was worth starting at. The house sold in the Fall and Winter of 2016 which is a typical down time in the market and sold fairly quickly for that time due to Suzanne’s marketing strategy. We love the fact that Suzanne saw the property for what it was and let us dream big. Suzanne is a full time, hands-on, knowledgeable realtor. She was ready to answer any and all questions we had, and there were a lot. With Suzanne’s knowledge and guidance it made the sale of our parents’ property much easier and at times enjoyable. She was a total pleasure to work with start to finish! Her marketing of the house was incredible. From her choice of a photographer, brochures, MLS listing to her posting on the property. Suzanne gave us a much bigger pool of potential buyers through her contacts near and far. We had several people that came from other states to view the property. This would probably not have happened if we had made a choice of a different local realtor. Everyone that viewed the marketing Suzanne put together felt the need to view the property in person, even though in many cases, the property was not exactly what they were looking for. This speaks to her genius in marketing! At inspection time Suzanne was there for us. This is a somewhat nerve-racking point in the sale of a property. She guided us through the inspection process and report thereafter and helped us decipher the report. She helped us sort out the items that needed to be done due to safety reasons. She also helped us sort out the items that were not safety items and just items that the buyer had requested to be changed that we did not have to do. With her knowledge, it saved us thousands of dollars. When it came to the work needed to be done and accomplished in a rather short time frame, Suzanne was once again there for us. We had a difficult time finding a plumber and electrician due to the ongoing new construction to take on small jobs in a short time. Suzanne had licensed people that were capable of doing these types of jobs in the time frame given to close on time. Her contacts with these people saved the sale of the house, and at the least made it close on schedule. Suzanne helped and explained to us the type of loan the buyer was using, the negatives and positive side of it. She helped us understand the the paper process and closing. We could not recommend a better, more knowledgeable, friendly realtor. If you are in the market for a top notch realtor we hope you are fortunate that she will agree to be your realtor as well. We will be using her services again in the near future. We will proudly recommend her to all we know and those we meet in the future who are in need of a realtor. Finally, the best thing of all; Suzanne started as our realtor, but through all the ups and downs in a real estate transaction and there are many, you really get to know a person. We are very proud to have made a new friend along the way in Suzanne.
Nanette and Terry (Smugglers Cover)

I got the privilege of working with Suzanne Leisher twice in 2016. I met with Suzanne with an idea of price range and qualitys I was looking for in a home.

She was sincerely interested in needs making the process simple and fun for me. I was on a time line she responded Incredibly to all my questions and needs. The negotiations were done clearly and correctly because of her integredy. I was able to travel abroad while each step of my purchase was completed, she kept me informed and updated, she did all the work timely and without any concerns on my part . I could not have found anyone as skilled and professional or more sincerely attuned to my needs! I highly recommend Suzanne as a realtor broker for success in a home purchase or sale!

Sue (Sandy Hook)

Seller –

”Knowledgeable-yep personable-yes On top of things-absolutely Responsive-always Suzanne was always on top of a sometimes difficult real estate transaction. She guided me through the entire process and answered all questions in a prompt fashion. Her advertising of my property was excellent and presented my house in the best possible light. One of the most important factors in a successful home sale, in my book. I would not hesitate to call upon her services again.”
Stephen (Solitude Pl)

Buyer –
Suzanne did everything we asked and kept us in the loop. She was genuine and shared our frustrations with the multiple sellers we dealt with along the way to the final closing of our dream property. I would definitely recommend her to anyone but more importantly I would not hesitate to have her represent me again.
Rob and Virna (West Beach)

We have been looking for a home in the area for years and Suzanne was able to find it for us. She was very helpful during the whole buying process. It was nice that she provided a time line for all the things that needed to be done. We highly recommend her. She is very knowledgeable about the local state market.

Roland and Heidi (Linda Lane)

Seller –
I recently had to sell a residence for an estate. It was important to get a good price but it was also necessary to have a sale in a reasonable length of time. To accomplish both of these goals it was necessary that the property be initially priced correctly, neither too high nor too low. Suzanne made full use of her considerable knowledge of the local market to recommend the right price. She marketed it professionally, making use of all the tools available to her. She kept me informed of what she was doing and provided buyer comments every time it was shown. When an offer was received she was instrumental in negotiating a final price that was satisfactory to both buyer and seller. She stayed on top of things every step of the way through the closing process. She did a wonderful job.

John Husband (Wrightsman)

Buyer –
I feel so fortunate to have been referred to Suzanne. I had been working with another agent to find a new home in the Seattle area including Whidbey and Bainbridge several months prior to being referred to Suzanne. The difference in expertise and skill was immediately apparent to me. She understood my needs and wants immediately and within one day, we found a house which fit! The negotiations, inspection, closing– all went smoothly, without a hiccup, because of Suzanne. Because I am relocating to Whidbey from out of state, Suzanne has gone the extra mile for me, dropping me at the island shuttle to the airport and then parking my car in my new garage until I return, recommending locals like a gardener– 5 stars aren’t enough for Suzanne!

Brenda (Elm)

Seller –
I interviewed agents to select the “right” one. What I heard about Suzanne is her empathy for her clients. This proved to be true. Every time an issue arose, Suzanne responded with a solution. Her kindness and patience got us through what could have been a tough time. Our house sold quickly and she found us the house that met our needs in a tight market. Suzanne works from the heart as well as from her real estate experience. I highly recommend her.

Bruce and Lynn (Headlands Way)

Buyer –
We recently bought a home on Whidbey Island, and Suzanne was our realtor throughout the process. We were totally unacquainted with Whidbey, and Suzanne showed great patience with us as we scoped out numerous properties from Coupeville south the southern tip of the island. She did not try to impose her own preferences on us, but as she got to know us better, she was adept at guiding us toward homes that increasingly matched our needs and interests. We are absolutely delighted with the home we finally purchased, and we owe our success almost completely to Suzanne. This is the sixth home we have bought over the last 35 years, and Suzanne was by far the best realtor we have ever dealt with.

This is written with total sincerity. Lloyd and Julie (Glacier Pond)

Buyer –
in the property question regarding, and she provides both the necessary information I highly recommend Suzanne Leisher as a seller’s agent and as a buyer’s agent. Suzanne is very personable, professional, and very knowledgeable. She is quick to respond to questions and support in expediting the process. My experience with Suzanne was excellent. One would be in very capable hands to have her as an agent. Suzanne is a consumate professional who delivers great service and extraordinary customer care. We highly recommend her for either side of the coin / listing or purchasing a home

Petra Kannning (Zig Zag)

Seller –
Suzanne is an excellent realtor. She is very responsive and easy to reach. She goes the extra mile to make things happen. We live out of town now and she took care of details that made the selling process go smoothly. She has been a strong negotiator and advocate. She is caring as well as extremely knowledgeable of all real estate issues. She was able to find wonderful, trustworthy people to complete work needed on our house. I cannot recommend her highly enough – if I ever have a real estate need again, she will be the first person I go to!

Norman Jean Englas (Pirate Ln)

Buyer –
Suzanne went above and beyond to get us our dream home. We had a very difficult selling agent and sellers but Suzanne was able to make the sale happen. I would not hesitate to recommend Suzanne to anyone.
Andrew & Kathleen Glaze (Weatherside)

Seller –
Helps you meet your Goals. I am writing this to express my complete satisfaction with Suzanne Leisher as a Realtor. During our first meeting with Suzanne, she listened attentively as we explained our situation about selling the property and relocating to another state in time to get our son enrolled in High School by a certain date.

She provided us with an extremely thorough market analysis packet that showed all the comparable properties in the area. She helped us calculate the selling price for our home. By comparing our home with other homes on the market, she helped us set a reasonable listing price that still left us room to negotiate with buyers before hitting our bottom line.

Suzanne showed great marketing skills by bringing in her team of professionals staging, photographing and placing our home on the MLS. The photographs were remarkable resulting in immediate interest by numerous perspective buyers.

Throughout the entire process Suzanne was professional, conscientious, and highly motivated. She helped us through all the inspections despite several setbacks. We always felt as though we were her only client. As a person, she was a pleasure to work with! Easy to talk to, a good listener, easy to contact, and always prompt at returning our calls or answering our questions. Best of all, Suzanne is a Realtor who makes it her job to help you meet YOUR GOALS rather than her own!

While getting to know Suzanne and her husband we now consider them lifelong friends. In our opinion there is no other Realtor.

We highly recommend Suzanne Leisher!

Randy and Tiffany (Zig Zag)

Buyer –
Suzanne was a pleasure to work with. She was proactive and very responsive. She thought of good ideas during the entire home buying process that helped me a lot. I highly recommend her.

Todd Bovey (Central)

Buyer –
Suzanne is more than a realtor; she is a friend that you can trust to do what it takes to get you the home you’re interested in at the price you can afford and to negotiate with the seller. We lived on the mainland and at times we would come over on the spur of the moment when we saw a home we were interested in seeing; Suzanne was always there for us when we came to the island. She knows how to respond with worried people in a way that calms their fears is very responsive when you need questions answered. Her warmth and caring attitude makes her like one of the family and if we move, Suzanne will be handling real estate transaction too. She is caring as well as extremely knowledgeable of all real estate issues. If you want a quality real estate agent, Suzanne is your person.

Diane Bedlington (Smugglers Cove)

Buyer –
My husband and I had the very best experience that we could have hoped for working with Suzanne when we purchased our home on Whidbey Island. Initially, we were only in town for a few days and Suzanne was kind enough to meet with us on a Sunday. We described what we were looking for and through her intuition, experience, and knowledge of the area, she showed us a total of five houses as we requested. After looking again at the first house, we went back for a second walk through the next day and ended up completing the offer on the phone while at SeaTac! Although we were not living in the state, the entire transaction from beginning to end was smooth with no hiccups and we also had the wonderful opportunity after closing to meet with the sellers who lovingly transferred our new home to us. We would highly recommend Suzanne for any real estate transaction.

Matt & Michelle Duncan King (Whales Tail)

Buyer –
After looking at 150 homes on Whidbey Island and going through 3 other real estate sales people in two months we found Suzanne Leisher. She produced instant results and is an excellent negotiator. We had a deadline to be moved out of our home and were having much anxiety when we asked Suzanne for help and within a couple of weeks she provided us with our dream home. I cannot say enough great things about her professionalism and especially her enthusiasm and ease about all transaction for the closing of the sale. We will use her if and when we ever have to sell our home as we are getting older.

Gene Bedlington (Smugglers Cove)

Buyer –
Suzanne is a seasoned professional that provided outstanding support to us as we purchased our retirement home on Whidbey Island. She worked hard to understand our needs and matching the potential properties for our viewings. With Suzanne’s help we found a great house in Freeland. She has a thorough understanding of the process made the negotiation, inspection, and escrow process run smoothly.

John & Debra Hoard (Beauregard)

Seller –
Suzanne was wonderful. She was easy to contact, returning calls quickly. If questions came up, and they often did, she was quick to provide answers. If she did not know she found out in very short order. When problems arose she was relentless in following through till the problem was resolved. I would recommend Suzanne in a heart beat. Very professional and easy to talk to.

Michael Bolan (Pirate Ln)

Suzanne worked tirelessly to help us move to the area from out of state. She was professional and quickly responded to any questions we had. Thanks to Suzanne, we have the perfect home and my family and I couldn’t be happier. I highly recommend Suzanne, she will make sure you are 100% satisfied.

Julie & John

Buyer –
It’s been a little over a year that I came to Whidbey Island to look for a home.
We had not done any research on the Island, and only knew it from vacationing 25 years ago. I always loved Langley.

Not having done any research we walked into Suzanne’s office cold…. She was warm and hospitable and spent some time over coffee to understand what I was looking for. She wanted to get to know my wishes, and me as an individual before she started her search for just the right property.

She was familiar with all the areas and their values, both pros and cons.

Although I found the house I ultimately bought, she was awesome in providing and dealing with all the necessary details and answering all the questions that normally arise out of such a transaction. She made the entire process painless and quick.
I found her responsive and accurate and above all she became my first and trusted friend on the island.

I would recommend Suzanne to anyone looking for a home here on Whidbey Island.

Dieter Rademacher ((Whidbey Shores)

Buyer –
You are going to love Suzanne! She is professional, smart and caring, and who doesn’t need that when looking for a place to buy. I highly recommend her. She was very responsive to what I was interested in and very happy to show me houses without asking me 100 questions about my qualifications. She had good information about the houses and if there was a question I had and she didn’t know the answer she got it and got back to me quickly. I got the impression she was more interested in helping me find my perfect house than just closing a sale.

Buyer & Seller
Suzanne is a breath of fresh air. We needed to find a larger home on a larger piece of property, and we wanted it to be south of our current location on Central Whidbey Island. She immediately went to work looking for new listings that met our criteria, and urged us to look in areas and at properties we would normally have not considered. Two weeks into the process we found a beautiful place. She was right there with us through the negotiation process and with issues that came up during the closing process. She was always responsive (I got emails from her sent at 5:30 AM) and always answered the phone or returned my call within an hour. She got me answers to all of my questions and did not belittle any of my requests or comments. Besides being responsive, I think she was lucky for us!

Dan and Wanda

Suzanne was a star. She knew that this was the right home to show us. She is a very good communicator and kept us informed of everything that was going on through the process. We would definitely recommend her.

Ian and Deb (Watkins)

Buyer –
Suzanne helped us buy a vacation home. Because we weren’t close by, she went above and beyond in making sure that the transaction went smoothly, from unusual government regulations to on-site inspection to hand-delivery of closing docs. She was fast to respond, always available, proactive in steering us through issues, and expert in every aspect of the process. She is smart, friendly and easy to work with and we will refer her to our friends.

Dale & Lisa (Brainers)

Seller –
Suzanne provided excellent service to us during the sale of our home. Her staging skills were impressive and the online photo presentation was well done and showcased our home very well. She had a positive attitude and gave us encouragement during the process. She continued to show our home even when we had left for the winter. Suzanne kept us informed during each step of the process from the listing, showings and the closing. She provided us with names of local craftspeople when inspection repairs were needed. Suzanne was excellent and made a difficult and emotional process proceed smoothly. We were fortunate to have her services.

David and Karen (Nobb Rd)

Suzanne is a consummate professional. Suzanne provided much needed guidance and counsel during the recent sale of our home. She listened to our wants and needs, allowed us to express concerns and represented our best interests during the entire process. I would definitely recommend Suzanne Leisher for all real estate needs.

Terri Montoya (Saratoga)

Seller –
Suzanne worked hard to sell our home. She did a great job of staging it and marketing it. We didn’t sell for quite a while due to the market, but when we did get offers we got 2 in one day, and due to Suzanne’s negotiation skills we finally settled above the asking price!

Deb & Ian Montgomerie (Wilkinson Farm Ln)

Buyer –
Suzanne was the perfect agent for us. She advocated in our behalf, gave us suggestions in the negotiation, and generally made the process seamless. She is a great “people person” and on good terms with so many local contractors, that we had no qualms about working with any of them. She was considerate, respectful, resourceful and fun! We are fortunate to have had her on our side.

Eric & Shannon Curry (Homestead)

Buyer –
Suzanne helped us buy our new home in Washington. Because we were coming from out of state, we had limited time to tour homes. Suzanne really listened to our needs and only showed us properties that would work for us. We actually ended up buying the very first home she showed us – after spending a whole day looking at about 15 properties. She put us in touch with someone to help with our financing and followed up with us throughout the process. She checked on the home before and after closing, while we were still out of state and busy packing and in transit. We would definitely recommend Suzanne to anyone ready to move to this area. Thanks, Suzanne!

David and Susan Dirkes (Crestmont)

Seller –
From the first meeting to closing she was professional, knowledgeable and helped us through the process. The staging and photos were included in her fee made it easy on us. Highly recommend working with Suzanne.

Eric Goss (Windfall)

Seller –
Suzanne worked tirelessly on our behalf for 15 months, finally negotiating a successful and very satisfactory agreement between us and the Buyers in a sale she made herself. We were very disappointed and frustrated by the time it took for the house to sell and Suzanne was patient and compassionate throughout! She is extremely professional, ethical and knowledgeable and we would have no hesitation in recommending her as both a listing agent and selling agent.

Rachel and Fritz Roetman (East Harbor)

Seller –
Suzanne Leisher is wonderful to work with and has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the island market. She handled all aspects of the sale of my home with the utmost professionalism. When I had questions, Suzanne always responded in a timely fashion and kept me well informed during every step of the process. Suzanne’s expertise, combined with the amazing network of professionals she utilizes for her clients, made it possible for my home to sell after only 4 days on the market! Her integrity, compassion, wit, enthusiasm, and genuine caring are some of her best qualities, and it is with the utmost gratitude and respect that I heartily recommend Suzanne Leisher to anyone in need of her services.

Carla Sattler

Buyer –
Suzanne was very helpful throughout the entire purchasing process. The house we purchased was a foreclosure which required a little extra work in the processing and dealing with the bank and she handled it very professionally
