Testimonials

Everything happened so quickly and perfectly.

Suhl & Bobbi represented me as a buyer on my first home.  Their shrewd negotiating and professionally written contract helped me to beat out twenty other buyers.  After some time in my new home, however, I realized that I was not happy with the neighborhood. Against better judgment, I jumped back into the San Francisco real estate market AGAIN!

I called Suhl and Bobbi and told them about my situation.  They listened, and as usual, worked fast:  a week later they took me on a tour of open houses in some new neighborhood and I found the perfect home.  This time we were up against even more competition, but Suhl & Bobbi  pulled off the near impossible and got me the deal.

What I needed then was a quick sale of my old home.  Again, Suhl & Bobbi accomplished the task adroitly!  I was in escrow on the old house one day after closing on the new one and I made a nice profit, too.  Everything happened so quickly and perfectly.

Hiring them for three consecutive deals is a testament to my continued satisfaction with Suhl Chin & Bobbi Levenson.  Beyond their excellent negotiating skills, Suhl & Bobbi tirelessly volunteer for numerous tasks that go far beyond the duties of an agent.  I strongly recommend them to anyone serious about real estate in San Francisco.

They are the calm in middle of a very stressful and insane process.

Suhl & Bobbi are fantastic Real Estate agents. They know San Francisco like back of their palm. They know SF real estate really well as well. They work hard to understand what you really want in a house, they are super efficient, prompt and is patient. Most of the other real estate agenst know and trust them and that makes the whole process of buying a house, from writing an offer to close of escrow manageable. They are the calm in middle of a very stressful and insane process. Without them by our side we would never have managed to buy our house.

They made the whole process amazingly smooth and painless.

We had a great experience with Suhl & Bobbi as our buyer’s agents. They worked very hard for us, and managed to get us the house we really wanted in a very tough market.  Thanks to them, we got the first house we bid on and we were chosen out of 38 other offers!  Suhl & Bobbi were very responsive to our style of home shopping, and gave us excellent advice.  They gave us great recommendations and was a big help in locating resources such as mortgage brokers, contractors and insurance companies.  They made the whole process amazingly smooth and painless.  We recommend her to everyone we know.

We got exactly what we were looking for.

Suhl & Bobbi are THE agents we needed. We did not have a successful partnership with a previous agent, but working with Suhl & Bobbi, we got exactly what we were looking for: close familiarity with the market, staying connected with the agent and the seller to keeping us in the game for a chance to counter. Excellent communication. After looking at a variety of homes, the first place we bid on, Suhl & Bobbi made sure we met the seller in person, stayed connected such that we did counter and, as a result got the house (competing against 17 bids). Remarkable! Thank you, Suhl & Bobbi.

Every question I have or am about to have, Suhl & Bobbi have the right answer.

Suhl & Bobbi are the best real estate agents. I know this from experience and I am not one to offer such high praise easily. I am a demanding client – I like to believe not unreasonable – but I expect my professionals to keep not only on pace but a step or two ahead. Suhl & Bobbi do exactly that. Every question I have or am about to have, Suhl & Bobbi have the right answer.   They have represented me and my family on four real estate purchases since 2002. I go back to them without hesitation each time because of their tremendous service and knowledge, easy going, friendly demeanor and great non-overbearing accessibility. In other words, they have the right touch.   I also want to highlight that each time, despite a hot real estate market, they helped locate properties that were right for us that you may say somehow “feel through the cracks.” That in itself is a huge gift and can only occur with a savvy real estate agent who works hard to know you and the market.

I can’t say enough good things about Suhl & Bobbi.

I can’t say enough good things about Suhl & Bobbi.  We had an apartment in the city for which there were few recent comparable sales, and we chose to sell it at an uncertain time of the market.  But our property sold quickly at a price we were happy with, and the selling process went very smoothly.  Suhl & Bobbi are upbeat, friendly, smart and very reliable.  They were always accessible and responded quickly to calls and emails.  They were proactive about addressing potential problems and made a number of suggestions that made the property more saleable.  They have a great, intuitive sense about real estate.  It truly was a pleasure working with them.  We would recommend Suhl & Bobbi strongly to anyone trying to negotiate this market.

Professional services with a personal touch.

Bobbi Levenson & Suhl Chin provided professional services with a personal touch that made our first time home purchase a truly enjoyable experience. Bobbi & Suhl prepared us for the complexities associated with first-time home buying, and did it with a great sense of humor, a commitment to meeting our needs, and an availability day or night to answer questions or listen to ideas. They customized our search based on our emerging preferences, and upon finding a home worked quickly to make our dream a reality. Bobbi & Suhl's thoroughness, knowledge, charisma, and clear communication made our experience both educational and fun. Their long-standing relationships with other professionals including mortgage brokers, listing agents, handymen and inspectors, streamlined the process and saved us time and worry. Their continued communication after we settled our purchase, which included a champagne toast and a follow-up home visit to answer questions months after moving in, have been greatly appreciated. Bobbi & Suhl remain only a phone call away, and we are happy to recommend them to any one seeking to find a home in San Francisco.

Very quick, positive, professional, and friendly!

Suhl & Bobbi are excellent agents in the bay area. My husband and I worked with them about a year and we have found our dream home recently! They were very attentive to our specific needs and also very diligently provided us any update on housing market. Suhl & Bobbi have such extensive real estate knowledge. They introduced us a loan broker, made quick appointments with inspectors through their connections, etc. Also, they were very quick, positive, professional, and friendly so my husband and I were able to enjoy our first-time buying process. Without reservation, I highly recommend them!

They were able to get my offer accepted and I know it was because of their reputation.

I spent 2 long years trying to find a house in San Francisco and Bobbi & Suhl were patient and kind and one day came across the perfect fit. After showing it to me, they contacted the seller — an agent they had previously done a successful transaction with — and he agreed to entertain my offer even though he already had others. Bobbi & Suhl put it together immediately and were able to get my offer accepted and I know it was because of their reputation. It was a long wait to find the right house, but once I did the transaction went smoothly, and despite the nightmare that house-hunting in SF is, it was a pleasure to work with them. They know the city very well.

Bobbi Levenson & Suhl Chin are knowledgeable, professional and down to earth. As my husband and I searched for a suitable house in this competitive market, Bobbi & Suhl were our diligent and supportive allies. We felt we could be honest with them and they were tenacious in their efforts to help us find the perfect home. They made the whole process very human. We couldn’t have asked for a better result!

We would recommend Suhl and Bobbi to anyone looking to buy in SF.

My wife and I just purchased our first house, and we don’t know that we could have made it through the process without Suhl and Bobbi’s expert help. We were not in a position to buy a multi-million dollar estate, yet we never felt like we were anything less than their highest priority clients. Most importantly, during moments of utter desperation (and there were many), they made sure that we remained positive and focused on getting not just any old place, but the right home for our entire family. We would recommend Suhl and Bobbi to anyone looking to buy in SF.

I needed to find a home from my elderly mother quickly. She was looking for certain things, (large yard, safe neighborhood, few stairs, etc.), which are not always easy to find in the San Francisco Bay Area. I called Bobbi & Suhl on a weekday evening. Bobbi was vacationing in Boston, but by the next day, they sent me several listings from which we found the right house. They made an incredibly stressful situation easy at a time when I needed help and a friend.

Bobbi & Suhl did a great job on the sale of our two-unit building in Bernal Heights. They were completely familiar with the San Francisco market and our neighborhood in particular, and provided a very thorough and creative approach to advertising our property above and beyond the mere multiple listing. They were attentive to and proactive on every detail leading up to and during the sale, and brought the additional brainpower and drive of her teammates, which we greatly appreciated in these tumultuous economic times within which we sold our property. For results in your Real Estate sale or purchase, we highly recommend Bobbi & Suhl.

It was a pleasure to work with Bobbi and Suhl as we purchased our first home. We did not have any time pressure for our purchase, so our search extended over the course of a year and Bobbi & Suhl were very patient with us. They guided us appropriately and maneuvered us through several bids. Their expertise on the SF residential market came through, as they were very accurate in their appraisals of what homes would end up selling for, and they thoughtfully answered all of our questions. They were skillful in helping us put together the right offer for the home we purchased, in terms of offer price and terms to make the offer most appealing to the seller. They also really came through for us when it came time to schedule a home inspection in a very limited window of time. Overall, they helped make possible the purchase of a wonderful home and we would gladly recommend them.

Suhl & Bobbi did it again!

Suhl & Bobbi did it again!

Five and a half years ago Suhl & Bobbi helped us buy our first home. We got a great deal and the transaction was smooth and thorough.  Last week we closed escrow and once again were thrilled with the result and the excellent service Suhl & Bobbi provided.

Over the interim years Suhl, Bobbi and I stayed in touch, meeting from time to time for updates. When we decided to move on, Suhl & Bobbi advised us perfectly on when to put our place on the market and how to prepare it. By following her suggestions we got top dollar and are very happy.

Suhl & Bobbi are down to earth, friendly and extremely reliable. They are easy to talk and demystifies the process of buy and selling property San Francisco.

We whole heartedly recommend them: you’ll be lucky to have them on your team.

Integrity through and through – that’s Bobbi & Suhl.

This is one of those situations where you wish you could give more than five stars. Having lived and purchased property in SF for more than 20 years, working with Bobbi & Suhl to sell my house in Bernal was hands-down my best experience. Bobbi & Suhl are incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to pricing, staging, and marketing. But what I love most about Bobbi & Suhl are that they are always positive, calm, and caring–no issue was ever too small for them not to respond quickly and professionally. Bobbi & Suhl’s circle of professionals–such as stagers, photographers, and maintenance support–are equally as stellar. They even helped me with my new home purchase. Integrity through and through–that’s Bobbi & Suhl.

Out of all of the real estate agents Bobbi & Suhl have been the most reliable, knowledgeable, friendly & effective.

Since 1988, when I bought my first single-family home, I have been using real estate agents in buying and/or selling a 44-unit apartment building, a 16-unit apartment building, a condo, and six single-family homes.  Currently my partner and I are in the process of buying a retirement condo in Las Vegas.  I have worked with many excellent real estate agents over a period that spans twenty-one years.  Out of all of these real estate agents, Suhl Chin & Bobbi Levenson have been by far the most reliable, knowledgeable, friendly, and effective real estate agents that I have had the pleasure to work with.  They are truly outstanding agents; they get the job done!  After listing my late mother’s home in the San Francisco Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for sale on February 18, 2009, Suhl & Bobbi sold the house in just 41 days, during one of the toughest real estate seller’s markets in U.S. history.  Escrow closed on April 1, 2009.  Suhl & Bobbi gave me an accurate and comprehensive Comparative Marketing Analysis (CMA) from which a realistic selling price was set.  Suhl & Bobbi effectively coordinated the timely completion of termite inspections and engineering reports.  Suhl & Bobbi effectively prepared the house for its first open house on February 22, 2009, from which a prospective buyer emerged who eventually bought the house.  The marketing pictures that Suhl & Bobbi took of my Mom’s house showed my mother’s love for her home of over forty years and, indirectly, told my Mom’s life story — a woman from the old country who, in spite of her lack of education and resources, single-handedly made all of the repairs on her home over the years in her very own special, practical, and creative ways. When I went to the title company to sign the escrow papers, Suhl & Bobbi were there with me and everything went smoothly.  Before the close of escrow, Suhl & Bobbi satisfied all of the last-minute requests and answered all of the questions from the buyer and her agent. Throughout  the entire transaction, I felt very comfortable with Suhl & Bobbi’s expertise and advice; and their attention to and accuracy with details are without equal.  Suhl & Bobbi far exceeded my expectations!  And, believe me, I am a very picky person!  Suhl & Bobbi walked the extra mile in selling my mother’s house.  They will do the same for you!  I enthusiastically recommend Suhl Chin & Bobbi Levenson to you!

Bobbi & Suhl are amazing! They make the entire process of either purchasing or selling a home virtually painless. We have worked with them in both capacities and have been extremely impressed with their industry knowledge and the level of professionalism with which they operate. From beginning to end we felt as though we were in the best possible hands and our interests were their primary concern. Working with Bobbi & Suhl feels more like a partnership than a client – agent relationship. We would differ to them for all of our real estate needs. Thank you again Bobbi & Suhl!

My husband and I were in the market for an investment property and a friend referred us to Bobbi & Suhl. Within two weeks they found the perfect property, submitted our offer and handled every little detail to make sure the transaction was as simple for us as possible. They went above and beyond the call of duty and we were so lucky to have such competent people to work with. We’ll use their services for all of our future needs.
