"We started shopping without knowing what would suit us best, and Susan and CJ first patiently learned about our current life situation and the reason why we wanted to buy. After learning that, they started suggesting different listings (sometimes even before those houses hit the market), and they helped us evaluate the pros and cons of each one of them when bringing us to the open house.
As we visit more open houses, they helped us narrow down to 2~3 neighborhoods in the larkspur and Corte Madera areas. The rest of the process just happened so smoothly: once we saw a new listing, they would quickly get the disclosure, spot potential red flags in the package, and advise us on the bid and no bid. One thing I'm particularly impressed with is how well-connected they are in the local market. Since they worked in Marin for so many decades, they knew every listing agent of houses we are interested in. That extra information made a big difference in our bidding strategy and saved us a lot of money. We successfully bought a place in our most desired neighborhood, madrone canyon. I would highly recommend Susan and CJ to my friends, family, coworkers, and anyone who is seriously looking into living in Marin for the long term."
"Cj and Susan are one of a kind REALTOR team. My husband and I are both Marin natives and were looking to move back from SF to raise our growing family. Even though we each had different and unique priorities, The Golden Gate Group successfully helped us land the perfect place in tiburon amidst one of the most competitive markets ever.
Not only do they deeply understand Marin real estate, but they also are incredibly well-networked, uniquely design focused, and able to navigate the complex demands of their buyers. I couldn’t be more excited to have worked with them and I’m certain we wouldn’t have won our house (and beat out 5+ offers) without their expertise. They helped us manage every step of the buying process from sourcing to financing and closing. And, they continue to go above and beyond even after the fact by helping to make contractor introductions, answering renovation questions, and even selling our house in san Francisco. They are an awesome duo and exactly what we needed to find our dream home."
"C.J.’s rare style of dealing with clients and other industry professionals throughout the transaction bodes a professional nature that delivers seamless results. C.J. And Susan are extremely knowledgeable in the San Francisco and Marin county markets, literally down to the street and block.
Their complex understanding of both residential and commercial real estate makes them my go-to agents for investment clients and private clients alike. All of my clients at first republic bank are high-net-worth individuals that range from young professionals to entrepreneurs to high-profile executives. When any client of mine is in need of a real estate professional, as they often are, I always know that Susan and C.J. Will get the job done!"
"I could go on and on about this masterful team, but I'll try to sum it up in this way: I believe 100% that the reason that we got our dream home (in a competitive process, at a competitive time in the market) is because of this team their deep knowledge of all facets of the market, their ability to manage the complicated process, and the way that they help their clients navigate unique situations with poise. For any and all future real estate needs that we have in this market, CJ and Susan will be the first and only calls that I make."
"Susan helped me find my home and was everything you could ask for in a broker and more. After we visited a half dozen houses, Susan helped me figure out what I was looking for and suggested some houses that I hadn’t thought to look at, one of which was the perfect house. She was always available and responsive and was both realistic and encouraging throughout the process. It was a delight to work with her and I’d recommend her without reservation."
"Susan and CJ were professional and honest and never stopped working. Susan and CJ's family have been in the field for generations in San Francisco and Marin, so they truly have the knowledge and guidance that helps with pricing and how to cast the net to capture the right buyer. A "Can do" attitude is a must in the selling environment and they both have it mastered! Thank you both for never giving up and keeping it positive."
"You have been a true difference-maker in every step of each of our transactions. You have demonstrated a higher level of professionalism and expertise than I could have imagined in business. I appreciate the time you took to make sure all of the details were met and your follow-up and follow-through are world-class. You have built a true relationship with me and will have my business again in the very near future."
"They listened to us with all our wants and needs and knew exactly what we needed from the start. Their patience with us was nothing short of a miracle throughout the search process. We’ve been here now for two years and can say we’ve never loved a home more. Helping us navigate selling in san Francisco and buying in Martin we wouldn’t be here without the dream team of C.J. And Susan."
"I worked with Susan to buy and sell my house and my experience with her was outstanding! She worked with me on every little step in the process and she was always a text message away, she was an example of professionalism, courtesy, experience, and a good work ethic. I would highly recommend Susan."
"Susan and C.J.’s great knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market helped us find our ideal home. We are very particular and she was patient and persistent in showing us the many options until we found the perfect place! And we still love it!"
