Ms. Susan Dakdduk expediently sold my parents' home in San Francisco within 48 days amidst the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The house sold well over asking and higher than a similar home which sold in a normal situation prior to the start of the pandemic. Ms. Dakdduk exhibited superior professionalism. My family is very fortunate to have had Ms. Dakdduk as our agent. We are very grateful for her undivided assistance to make the sale happen. I would recommend her to any person who needs a reliable and knowledgeable agent.

Susan managed to sell our family's property during a PANDEMIC! Talk about being thrown a curve. Suddenly, we had to contend with new coronavirus rules and regulations. Susan was calm and collected through every step of the process and went above and beyond, attending to every expected AND unexpected detail! We aimed high, and Susan aimed even higher.

Susan did an extraordinary job renting my condo. This was the first time I used a real estate company, to find tenants. From beginning to end, Susan took care of every little detail, communicated and responded instantly, and more importantly, was able to educate me while taking care of my interests. I was made to feel like the most important client, selling a very expensive property.

Susan has helped me find a place to live twice now. The first time was great enough that I wanted to work with her again, and the second time was even better. She was always available for help and advice and explained all the processes that I asked about in detail. She was available far outside of the time range that I expected, working with me to get forms signed and submitted until 11 PM on a couple occasions. I don't think I could ask for more out of a realtor.

My wife and I worked with Susan to purchase a home in San Francisco and this particular purchase would not have been possible without Susan's experience, negotiating ability, extensive network, and tireless work ethic. Susan was able to navigate a complicated relationship on the seller's to get our offer accepted and closed. Additionally, she was extremely flexible and went above and beyond in all aspects of her role as our agent, doing everything she could to ensure we were happy and comfortable in our new home. She is a consummate professional and I could not recommend her highly enough.

It was a true pleasure working with Susan, both as a buyer and seller. With her extensive knowledge of the San Francisco market and expert negotiating skills, Susan helped me purchase the perfect apartment. Seven years later, due to changing life circumstances, I needed to sell the apartment and immediately got in touch with Susan. As I was no longer in the area, she coordinated everything seamlessly - from painting to staging to inspections. Susan is a consummate professional - she is extremely organized, efficient and personable. With her extensive experience and knowledge of current market conditions, I would absolutely recommend her, and hope to be able to work with her again in the future!

I have worked with Susan for19 years as the buyer and seller. Susan goes above and beyond the usual role of an agent. She is also very personable and fun to be with which is a valuable attribute when one is spending a lot of time together. I highly recommend Susan.

– Elaine Dauphin

I highly recommend Susan for a potential buyer or a seller, as I was both! I was able to compare Susan's professionalism to others and will confidently say, "she is a cut above!" Susan is thorough, knows the ins and outs, the paperwork, and explains things well. Susan helped me secure the home I wanted in a super competitive market, I couldn't be happier!

We are lucky to have had Susan as our agent both buying and selling over the past few years. Susan is very detail oriented and has got us excellent deals whether on a purchase, a sale or rental we highly recommend Susan

Susan was our realtor in S.F while we were living in N.Y, not the easiest. She found our Nob Hill apt, and closed the deal for us within a few days. She also found another ( investment ) apt for us and closed it quickly, helping with all aspects of the sale, from inspections to needed contract work. She quickly rented the 2nd place out, while we arranged our move cross country. We listed our Nob Hill apt 3 1/2 years later, and Susan sold it in 1 day 20% overasking. Susan helped us in a million ways , knowing well, the various differences in N.Y and Ca real estate laws, something we lacked knowledge and was there all the way with us, and always enjoyable to work with. I would fully recommend Susan to anyone looking to buy in the Bay Area, you couldn't do better.

Susan was a tremendous help navigating what can be a crazy San Francisco real estate market. She listened carefully to what we were looking for and delivered a lot of great options for us to check out both within and slightly outside our requirement list, which really helped us figure out exactly what we wanted. She always asked thoughtful, helpful questions which really helped us stop and think through a lot of potential issues. She was able to get us contractors, inspectors, etc. to help us price out any renovation work we might have wanted/needed to do to a space to figure out if it could be the right fit for us. When it came down to offer time, Susan always got us a seat at the negotiating table and armed us with the exact information we needed to be competitive. Ultimately we are so happy with the home we ended up with and owe a huge thanks to Susan for helping us get there.

Some people think houses in San Francisco sell themselves. In our case it took Susan's vision, hard work and real estate savvy to produce the results we got - a sales price more than 35 percent over asking and a price per square foot that set a new standard for our neighborhood. We can't sing her praises high enough.
