Susan von GeldernSr. Executive Associate (Lic #00820812)
"Susan von Geldern was our broker when we bought our home in Davis over 30 years ago. We learned that she was knowledgeable about Sacramento properties and sought her assistance. She again proved to be the consumate professional in her ability to make a deal, her guidance in picking professionals to review the property, secure old warranty documents from the sellers, demand key repairs, run interference for us in getting satisfaction from the sellers, providing timely advice and patience in securing for us the best outcome. She sweated the details so that we didn't have to. We were totally impressed with her performance!"

"Susan came highly recommended by a number of my colleagues and friends who had worked with her to buy houses in Davis and the surrounding area. They told me she was a wonderful person to work with who would be patient, flexible, and a great advocate. They were absolutely right. I especially appreciated her willingness to help me as I narrowed down what I was looking for, giving me time and space to make decisions at my own pace. She never applied pressure and always felt like she was on my side. I am so glad to have found a realtor like Susan von Geldern.
It was a real pleasure to work with her, and she has continued to be available and helpful even after closing (since I was a first time buyer there were lots of questions still, and she has always been there to help me sort through them).
I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a new home!"

"The von Gelderns were the finest realtors I've ever worked with! Not only did they know their business, but they went the extra mile of helping out whenever the needs arose. They communicated swiftly and clearly and I never worried about being placed on the back burner with them; I felt as if they held this sale in their highest regards.
I highly recommend this team, both Susan and Rick, for anyone who's looking to buy or sell their homes."

"Susan von Geldern was recommended to us by a co-worker, and we found her to be an absolutely extraordinary agent: forthcoming, patient, and able to understand exactly what we were looking for. She has a profound knowledge of the area and community. She took the time to patiently show us numerous houses, and then walk us through the processes of negotiating, inspections, escrow, and everything else...so we now have a home that is just right for us."

"- Susan von Geldern made sure we found the house that we wanted at the right price. Not only did she adapt to our changing plans, but she also offered solutions for every aspect of the purchase we were doubtful about.
- I would recommend Susan to everyone because she cooperates with everything, she is very approachable plus she is available for every need.
- Susan even went out her way to help us with providers after the closing, demonstrating true care for our well-being and satisfaction.
- We rate Susan a 5 star (out of 4)"

"Working with Susan von Geldern is a a wonderful experience. Susan has a long and distinguished career in real estate and she is the ultimate professional. Susan fully understands the local housing market and she masters all aspects of the home selling process."

"Working with Susan von Geldern is a wonderful experience. She is a distinguished professional, remarkably skillful, and completely trustworthy. Susan embodies all the characteristics one would hope to find in a real estate professional."

"Susan showed me homes even when I hadn't sold my own so that she could calibrate her own searching and figure out what I was looking for, because I hardly knew myself. She tailored all of her thinking to what I was interested in, rather than trying to convince me of something. She knows the area better than anyone I know, right down to every building era and neighborhoods across the region. She has amazing local knowledge!"
Heidi, Davis (Seller) Sat, 29 Oct 2016 09:18:52 +1000
"We were looking for someone who understood the local Davis real estate market and could confidently and accurately advise us so we could move quickly when we were ready. We also wanted someone who would be patient and friendly with us. My wife and I rarely agreed on homes we liked, and Susan patiently took us to see many of them over several months, before we hit our first (and only) jack pot of joint approval. We appreciated her help and attention to detail in helping us secure a new Davis home. After we closed, she provided us with help finding local painters, architects and cleaners.
Susan is the real deal. She is an honest and hard working real estate agent who saved us money and negotiated with our best interests in mind. She is also an equally special human being who we enjoyed spending time with."
Nikki Martin, San Mateo (future Davis resident) (Buyer) Sat, 10 Sep 2016 13:31:38 +1000
"Susan was en excellent broker. She was very kind and understanding with a deep understanding of the local market. Susan was exceptional in being helpful, but not 'pushy'. She did well and beyond what I had expected from a broker in helping us deal with specific problems that came up during our house inspections. I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to have had Susan helping us with our home buy."

"Would be happy to tell future clients how good she is."

"Susan is fantastic. Every step of the sale went smoothly, and I could trust her to give honest feedback to make sure my home looked its best."

"Susan was absolutely prepared. We did interview another realtor (family friend) but Susan outshined this guy whose been selling in Davis - actually his mother - for years. Hands down, Susan was prepared, professional and oh so easy to talk to!
This was my parents home so sensitivity to all of my 5 sisters growing up here not to mention this was my parents first home built in 1951, was SO important. A good friend of my parents actually recommended Susan - and Mr. Al Stehli was right on. Thank you all to the team at Lyon - another journey bittersweet!"

"Susan von Geldern handled all aspects of our sale with great professionalism and skill. Our house sold quickly and all escrow details were handled exceptionally well. We were particularly grateful for Susan's help with the transfer of our solar contract. These contracts are often difficult to manage, and Susan did a great job for us."
John Oldenburg, Davis, CA (Seller) Mon, 09 May 2016 07:38:33 +1000
"Susan von Geldern provided me, a first time home buyer, an excellent service for purchasing a condo. She is kind, warm, patient, very experienced and knowledgeable.
I was getting tired of looking for a condo to buy. I did not have good experience with two previous agents. One day, I asked this man I knew how long it took him to find a house he wanted to buy. He answered: "More than 12 months, and my agent never pushed me." Immediately I asked him to refer me to his agent. That's how I met Susan and it was the good start. During the escrow, in the numerous moments of doubt, anxiety and frustration, her presence was supportive, assuring, and educating. Without her excellent guidance, I could not purchase a condo. Thank you very much, Susan, from the bottom of my heart."
