I highly recommend Susie and John. They represented us in an out of town home purchase. They are professional, honest, efficient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. They previewed properties for us and made us aware of details about the properties both positive and negative. They always had our best interest at heart and negotiated a great deal for us. Quite frankly you get two realtors for the price of one and what a team they are!!! They are by far the best real estate agents I have ever worked with!

You will find no realtor team better than Susie and John of Forrest Properties. They are incredible in every way regarding real-estate but most importantly in their personal and professional integrity. You can trust they will do the best for you by putting your needs first. This is what you want when embarking on the biggest financial decision of your life and searching for that much needed partner to guide you. These guys kept delivering months after my escrow closed. They are simply the best!

Susie and John are AMAZING and I cannot recommend them enough. They recently sold our home for way over the asking price setting a new record in our old neighborhood and found us the house of our dreams in this crazy market while masterfully navigating a multiple offers scenario. And did I mention this all took place during a pandemic?

A few years ago we met Susie and John when they sold our neighbor’s house. We were so impressed with them that we knew they were the only realtors we’d go with if we ever decided to sell our home. Fast forward a few years and that fateful day arrived and meeting with Susie and John felt like catching up with old friends. They are the perfect combination of professionalism, warmth, experience, and savvy business people with their client’s best interests at heart.

They did a walk-through of our property and we pointed out all the upgrades and repairs that had been done to our 1953 home over the last twenty years. They were very impressed with the property and at the same time had great staging suggestions that would make the home show even better. We told them we wanted to find a new house first and then put our current home on the market. We immediately got to work getting the house “show ready” while Susie and John went to work on finding us a new home.

Long story short, we met with them on a Thursday, they found us a home over the weekend, they advised us and guided us through a counter, and our final offer was officially accepted the following Thursday! Yes, you heard right. A total of seven days! They really pulled off the impossible in an insane market with multiple offers of a very sought after property. They were great advisors during this extremely stressful time and steered us in the right direction every step of the way. Their years of experience have made them master negotiators in the art of the deal and at the same time, compassionate and caring people that will always take care of their clients as if they were part of their family.

After entering Escrow it was time to put our old home on the market. Susie and John came up with a brilliant strategy to sell it. They had professional photographs taken, created a virtual video tour, and last but certainly not least, a video featuring areal footage via drone. Who does that?

Showings were done over a long weekend by appointment only due to COVID-19 and followed the protocol and safety precautions needed to keep us and potential buyers safe at all times. They were in constant contact with us throughout the weekend with updates after each showing and potential offers coming in.

After a very busy weekend of showings, several potential buyers submitted offers. Susie and John came over to discuss the offers and were very knowledgeable and very patient with our questions. We leaned heavily on their guidance and expertise and as a result, ended up with a great buyer who loved the home and an amazing sales price for over asking.

Over the next month, they held our hand every step of the way during our two Escrows and knew exactly what to say or do at every stage. At the end of this journey, we sold our home for top dollar, found the home of our dreams, but best of all, made lifelong friends. For this, we’ll be forever grateful.

John and Susie are an incredible team. You can see within the first few minutes of meeting them that they know what they are doing, they know the market, and they love what they do, and most importantly, they will put you, the client, first.
John and Susie are trustworthy, honest, hardworking, and just lovely people. You may hire them as your agent at first, but will soon realize you now have two people in your life you hope to keep as friends.
Would we use them again? In a nanosecond. We highly recommend John and Susie of Forrest Properties.

Susie and John Forrest are the best! They sold our home during the height of COVID lockdowns. Their attention to detail created a calm environment, ensuring every potential buyer knew our property was sanitized and secure. They took the time to truly know our property so any questions that came up were quickly and accurately answered. They were in constant communications with us throughout the process, especially attentive as we navigated the paperwork, inspections and final sale. We received an excellent price for our home sale, a testament to the professionalism of Susie and John during a time when sales were at a standstill . They put heart, soul and years of expertise into their work, and have impressed me. In just a few months of working together, I not only consider them my partners to get my home sold, but now my friends. I highly recommend Susie and John Forrest Properties.

If you are looking for dedicated, warm and honest realtors: look no further than Susie & John. We had a very tight budget and timeline in an insane market and Susie and John worked tirelessly to meet our near impossible list of needs. They listened even as we changed our minds and expectations and we found our dream home just before interest rates went up. They continued to be our allies and mentors through the escrow and inspection process, which was a huge help given that we had no clue what we were doing. They are communicative and empathic, which was a lifesaver through such a distressing time. It is also a huge plus to have two people working with you; Susie and John each have their specialties and this is a huge bonus. Not to mention that they have worked and lived in LA for decades and really understand the pros and cons of each LA neighborhood. I give them my highest recommendation!!

We chose Susie and John to help buy our home because we saw them as diligent, open and attentive. Throughout the process, we found them to be so much more than that. They proved themselves to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, proactive and helped us navigate a crazy market to finally close on our dream home at a great price. They always had great advice and their calm, thoughtful style ensured we kept our sanity and focus in a rapidly changing market. They always had our best interests at heart and worked to get us the best deal possible on our home. Their network of specialists were invaluable in giving us peace of mind during the inspection period. Bottom line, they are lovely people to work with and we highly recommend them.

Our experience with Susie and John exceeded our expectations. They guided us through the process of selling our home that before we knew it we were done. Respectful, professional, knowledgeable, are just a few words I would use for our experience.
If you’re looking for a realtor in Los Angeles do not hesitate to call them. You will not be disappointed.

John and Susie went well beyond what is expected of an agent in not only selling my home, but in
the preparation prior to selling. I have highly recommended them to my friends and will continue to
do so.

I met Susie and her clients for a home staging consultation in Northern California. Susie walked me through the property as she took meticulous notes on the recommendations provided to help her clients prepare the home for us to stage. She was warm and welcoming that I was immediately attracted to her magnetic and charming personality. Susie treated me with such kindness, consideration and respect that it made partnering with her one of my most memorable and enjoyable experiences to date. She is authentic and the epitome of professional. She is an excellent communicator, very service oriented and efficient. Susie is top of her craft and kept me apprised of any changes / updates on the status of the property so I had adequate time to prepare. This is very important as a home stager with managing logistics and what not; which I greatly appreciated. So while I didn’t use Susie to help me buy/sell a property it was easy to get a pulse on her integrity and market knowledge based on our engagement. That said, I highly recommend Susie of Forrest Properties!
