Testimonials

Suzanne has been absolutely amazing throughout the entire process of finding and now buying a house in Colorado Springs. The place I found is almost as perfect as possible. I can’t wait to settle there.

I was super impressed with Suzanne’s professionalism and her attention to everything I said about what I wanted. We spent ~6 hours looking and another 7 hours trading phone calls and finalizing offers and paperwork (~11pm that night!). She is an awesome person on top of that. Her team is very solid.

Suzanne Holland is a unique realtor. She through and helped to sell our home in a very difficult market. We had moved out of state and kept incurring expenses and were desperate to get the house sold so we could get our money out of the house in Colorado. With that money, we would be able to buy a new house. Looking back, the whole process took about 6 months. Suzanne salvaged the deal just before it went sour and was able to secure financing for the buyer. We now are able to buy a new house and move on with our lives. Suzanne is very resourceful. If the house can be sold, Suzanne is the one to do it.

Suzanne is all about building relationships and doing what’s in the best interest of her client, not herself. Suzanne talked me out of selling our house 3 times before we actually did it. She consistently stayed in contact with us in the 5 years since helping us buy and we have enjoyed becoming friends with Suzanne at the same time.

When it did come time to sell our house, Suzanne didn’t rest on her laurels just because we were friends. She provided us with very professional service, high-quality marketing materials, high quality marketing photos. Being numbers people, we appreciated Suzanne’s willingness to look at numbers in many different ways with us. We appreciated Suzanne supporting us in our philosophy of pricing to sell and her willingness to let us turn all the numbers when pricing our home and when buying our next home. She treated our selling/purchasing as if we were high-end clients, even though we’re not!

In general, Suzanne has a gift for putting her client’s interests ahead of her own, always responding to our needs/wants/desires, and for maintaining a great personal/professional relationship over the years

In October 2010, my husband and I began looking into buying a new home. Suzanne came highly recommended to us by a close friend who couldn’t say enough great things about her and the hard work she does.

We told Suzanne a few details about what we thought we wanted in a house and almost immediately upon talking to her, she had a website set up for us with dozens of houses in our price range. She continued to add properties to the website all week. She also helped us with finding a mortgage broker. That weekend she took us out to start looking at a few to see what we wanted. We found our home the first day of looking.

There were many road blocks thrown in our path to purchasing our new home and Suzanne worked nonstop to help us clear them all and close on our house within the month. She was always honest, courteous and hardworking. My husband and I both felt she had our best interests at heart at all times.

We would highly recommend Suzanne Holland to anyone looking to purchase a home.

We are very pleased with the professional advice and help that we received from Suzanne to get our house sold. This was by no means an easy transaction. By the time we called Suzanne for help, our house had been on the market already for over 8 months. We kept dropping the price little by little but looking back now we realize that we were always behind the curve. When we had our initial “pricing” conversation with Suzanne we did not particularly like what she had to say. But because her price target was backed up by solid facts and research, we did realize that she was right. We did put the house back on the market and it was under contract in less than a week. By that time we had already relocated and Suzanne took care of arranging all necessary repairs and little things that needed to happen to get things going. Just as things started to look like smooth sailing we ran into a major issue with an IPC. Afterwards it turned out the IPC was wrong but for 2 weeks it looked like the deal could blow up. Luckily Suzanne had the right resources in her group to get advice for this unusual issue and after lots of phone calls and persistence from Suzanne the issue got resolved. We would for sure recommend Suzanne to anyone we know that is planning to sell or buy a house in the Springs. We only wished that we had listed our house with her from the beginning.
Andrea and John Ho
As first-time homebuyers, we were unsure how to find a realtor that could help us. A future co-worker recommended that we talk with Suzanne Holland. We did speak with other realtors, but were turned off by their pushiness or intimidating nature. With Suzanne, her relaxed and comfortable personality helped make the stressful situation of buying a first home a pleasant one.

Our situation, not yet living in town and needing to close within the first week of a new job, was complex, but she easily accommodated our needs. She lined up a great lender who had very competitive rates and would close before the first paycheck. She often rearranged her scheduled to match our last-minute flights into town or to preview houses in which we were interested. Suzanne really listened to both of our sometimes-conflicting desires in our first home and helped us explore a variety of options around a town in which we were unfamiliar. She was patient with our indecisiveness and remained confident that we would find what we were looking for. We had a few heartbreaks along the way, of losing a few homes in multiple offer situations, but we knew with Suzanne helping us we would find something great. Once, she even tried to tell us that we were thinking about offering too much for a house because we were getting antsy. We’ve never heard of a realtor trying to convince a client to offer a lower amount, so we knew she really had our best interest in mind.

Sure enough, our dream home came on the market the next week, and right away Suzanne was there. She took well over 50 pictures and discussed the home with us in depth. Even though we hadn’t been in that particular house, we felt confident in Suzanne’s knowledge of what we wanted and what she was able to share with us about the house. We put in an offer that evening.

We have now been in our new home for a month, and every day we look around thinking how lucky we are to live in such a wonderful place. Thank you, Suzanne!

Dixie and I are thankful to Suzanne for selling our house in Colorado Springs at a fair price in the middle of a difficult real estate market. The breadth of services she provided and the professionalism and commitment consistently demonstrated by Suzanne and other Platinum Group personnel were very helpful and encouraging. We appreciate the excellent photography and terrific website presentation that brought the buyers’ interest and her patient tenacity in finding a qualified buyer. We are thankful to Suzanne for going the extra distance to update the exterior pictures of our home to assure the most favorable presentation, for providing a Stager to advise us on simple updates to make our home more attractive to potential buyers and for reminding other realtors in the area of the continued availability of our home.

We are thankful, too, for Suzanne providing us the information we needed in order to make important decisions about the price of our home by keeping us informed of the reactions of potential buyers who toured our house and of the market changes occurring in the market area where our home was located. Having access to the website that showed activity on similar house in our area was very helpful. Suzanne helped us to establish a reasonable initial price and understanding the market in real time allowed us to make a minor adjustment as the market declined without making us feel pressured to the cut the price.

We have sold many homes but never in a market as difficult as this. We are very happy that we chose Suzanne to represent us in the sale of our home.
Chuck and Dixie Daye
We would like to recommend your consideration of Suzanne Holland as your realtor and I’d like to take a few minutes to explain why.

Tom and I have been contracting for the U.S. Government overseas for a decade. Neither of us had ever owned a house and in fact were very inexperienced when it came to many considerations of living in, let alone buying a home in the United States. Home ownership had been a dream of ours for years, but we really had no clue about how to go about the purchase.

We contacted Suzanne based on one of her online listings, as we had contacted several other realtors. Her no-nonsense advice and friendly, fast, and professional response quickly made her a stand-out in our minds and we decided to work exclusively with Suzanne in very short order. Before we could move to the U.S., another couple that we knew were offered jobs in the Colorado Springs area, so we recommended Suzanne to them. They purchased their first home just a few months later and were extremely happy with the service Suzanne provided.

Suzanne and her excellent staff set up a web site for us to show us houses that matched our wish list for our future dream home. This really helped us narrow down our choices and the areas we were interested in buying. All throughout the process, Suzanne helped to guide us toward creating realistic goals in a way that was fun and informative. When I sent a few of the front-runners on our list to a friend of mine who had recently found work here in the Springs, she and her husband became interested in working with Suzanne as well.

I’m happy to say that on our very first day out, Tom and I found the home of our dreams and my friends found theirs within their first weekend out looking with Suzanne.

Overall, I would say that our experience has been extremely positive. I can’t believe how quickly we have concluded the closing on our home because everyone involved was so on top of the process. Suzanne is one of the top real estate sales professionals in the area, and rightfully so. She has been extremely available throughout the sometimes nerve-wracking process of first-time home ownership. Her contacts in the field have also been amazing – from the inspector she recommended, to her assistant, to the mortgage broker – all of them have demonstrated the same attention to detail and professionalism that saleswoman of Suzanne’s caliber would expect on behalf of her clients. On top of getting a home we love in a great neighborhood for a great price, Tom and I have found a friend for life.
Heather and Tom Eisele
Suzanne provides outstanding service when it comes to finding a home. We sincerely feel that she went far beyond the call of duty when she helped us look for our home. We live overseas so looking for a home abroad is quite challenging. Suzanne took our interests and concerns into consideration in order to help find the ideal location. In addition, she helped us narrow down our search by regularly sending emails and internet updates to us.

Amazingly, prior to a house hunting trip, Suzanne even called her contacts to find homes that were not even on the market yet. We are so thankful that she took the time and effort to do this because one of these houses ended up being our dream home. We can not thank Suzanne enough for both her professionalism and her tenacity to find us the right home. We would highly recommend her to anyone.
Pat and Cynthia Markey
What a pleasure it was to work with Suzanne Holland in making my first home purchase as a single, recently divorced person! Frankly, I was nervous about going through the process by myself but Suzanne and her team of experts walked me through every step – making it clear and easy to do what I need to do to get into a terrific home that fit both my budget and my dreams.

Buying a home requires a significant amount of paperwork. When I felt overwhelmed, they helped to explain the paperwork, why it was needed and how I could best complete it. When the deadlines seemed to tight, they explained why they were needed and adjusted to meet my needs yet still ensured I closed when I wanted to close. When I needed to find a loan officer, Suzanne provided me with names of outstanding professionals. When I needed an inspector – again, a choice of excellent resources.

Suzanne was upbeat, helpful and easy to work with. If I am in the market – to buy or sell – I will reach out to Suzanne Holland, knowing that I will be guided, supported and well treated throughout the process. In Suzanne Holland, I not only have a realtor, I have an admired friend.
Dawn Roth
Suzanne was great! She was very professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about the homes and markets. I appreciate the time and effort she gave to us in finding the perfect new home!! Thanks!
Aaron and Laura Webber
The services provided by Suzanne and her team were exceptional. She provided a professional stager that helped prepare our home for showings, and a professional photographer that mapped out our floor plan into an interactive online photo tour. Her marketing approach covered not only the standard MLS listing and advertising, but also a robust online presence and home tours for local realtors.

Suzanne was very patient as we looked at over 40 properties to purchase in a wide variety of categories. Her expertise was imperative in the negotiations, transaction deadline and coordination and closing of multiple transactions in a short period of time. It was a pleasure working with Suzanne and The Platinum Group, and we would confidently recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate.
Rich and Rebekah Barrington
I would like to recommend Suzanne Holland as a realtor who is understanding of the difficulties faced by the seller and goes above and beyond to make the process smoother. Suzanne knows the Skyway area inside and out, which means she can help you price your home to capitalize on the best of a difficult market.

When I first interviewed Suzanne, I was impressed by the seller’s notebook she created detailing everything a potential buyer would want to know about my home and the surrounding neighborhood, including schools and shopping. She is very detailed oriented so not much gets past her.

Suzanne offers the services of a design consultant to “stage” your home and a fabulous photographer to showcase the best of your home in attractive photographs. Advertising was done as needed. Suzanne was open to any ideas I suggested, including an ad in the local paper.

I particularly appreciated that Suzanne always called and emailed me in a timely manner. I also appreciated that he took time to sit with me and discuss alternative ways to sell my house. My house was only on the market for six months but to an anxious seller seems forever. Suzanne was always patient and understanding in providing me with the information I needed to make a decision. Bottom line, Suzanne was easy to work with throughout the process.

At closing, a situation occurred that could have delayed the process that everyone had worked so hard to complete Suzanne showed her professionalism by being direct, concise, and ensuring that the process came to a successful finish.

Suzanne also helped me find a good, reliable realtor in my new out-of-state location how has turned out to be almost as wonderful as Suzanne. Last, but most certainly not least, Suzanne is a very caring, honest and straight forward realtor who I can highly recommend.
Charlotte Wilkinson
This letter is to recommend Suzanne Holland for your real estate needs. Suzanne had shown our home in a past listing, and kept her name in front of us even after taking our home off the market. Our desire to re-list prompted a meeting with Suzanne to begin the process. Suzanne prepared a realistic assessment of market conditions that enabled us to set realistic expectations and timeframes for the home sale. Suzanne’s knowledge of the Colorado Springs market was focused on our surrounding area, comparable sales, days on the market, and expected price point among many other necessary data elements. Suzanne did not hesitate to let us know what would be necessary to sell the home considering current market conditions.

While we were contemplating these changes and a re-listing, Suzanne didn’t stop thinking of us when touring a client in the area. An out of the blue call from Suzanne to schedule a showing despite our not being listed led to an agreeable negotiation and a sale of the home. Suzanne facilitated the process as a transactional broker and provided fair representation throughout. Suzanne is supported by an outstanding team who treats instant and comprehensive communications as the norm, not the exception.

We’ll always thank Suzanne for thinking of us when her clients expressed an interest in the neighborhood and for her continuous communication both as her client and prior to the listing and sale. Suzanne’s extensive market knowledge, realistic assessment of our home, and a commitment that extended beyond a mere business transaction makes it easy for us to recommend Suzanne Holland to you.
William and Amy Keller
I am sitting in my lovely new office in our wonderful new home and want to share how grateful we are for the care and expertise that Suzanne provided during this entire process. The advice that she gave as we prepared to sell our previous home was right on the mark. By following her suggestions, we became very competitive in a very tough market.

The excitement really started to build once we were under contract and needed to find our next great home. Suzanne listened to what we wanted and was ever mindful of our preferences and budget. Her super support team kept us informed and on task with all the paperwork for both sale and purchase.

Every bump in the decision-making process was handled by Suzanne with grace and professionalism. David and I were always confident that she was looking out for our best interests all along the way; even when things weren’t clear to us.

We have enthusiastically recommended Suzanne to others, and while we hope to stay settled here for many years, we would welcome the chance to work with her again when the time is right. If we can provide a recommendation to others considering her services we would be delighted to do so.
Eve and David Sckolnik
After moving to Hawaii and leaving Suzanne to sell the house and five lots, we want to thank Suzanne for the energy and professionalism that she provided during the last twelve months. The Colorado economy was still trying to recover, and yet she was able to sell and close everything in an orderly fashion.

We are appreciative of Suzanne’s suggestions during this period. The professionals (painting, drywall, carpenters, floor maintenance, electricians, etc.) who she recommended for the house freshening were superior. Suzanne’s timely and personal attention to so many details after we left enabled us to begin our new life without any real estate concerns. By representing us at closings we were spared multiple trips back to Colorado Springs.

We were fortunate to have Suzanne representing us for the real estate activities of the last year. She is truly a superior professional with gifted skills in communication and marketing. Her intuitive senses in listening and patiently guiding clients into reasonable actions and decisions are a delight to behold and experience.

We want to thank Suzanne for her caring, timely communication and all that she accomplished. The friendship has been extremely rewarding.
Maria Oldendorf and Kermit Shields
We worked with Suzanne to sell our view lot in Top of Skyway. She was quite knowledgeable, efficient and very pleasant throughout. She kept us fully updated, anticipated needs and made sure all our questions were answered along the way. She quickly found interested prospects and we were highly pleased at how quickly we had an acceptable offer that successfully closed. Given our experience, we highly recommend Suzanne as a realty professional who delivers results.
Bill and Debbie B.
I have known Suzanne since 2008 and she has both successfully represented me both as a buyer and a seller.

Suzanne is one of the Preferred Twenty-Five realtors in Colorado Springs because she’s honest, reliable and successful in selling. You can always depend on Suzanne to tell you the truth about your house and the market even if that truth is not what you want to hear. While most realtors seem to be mostly about their personal success, interest and “numbers,” Suzanne is truly interested in her client’s needs, concerns and expectations even when those expectations don’t line up with reality.

After I had put my house on the market, I changed my mind and wanted to take it off the market, but that same day, I had an offer on the table. Suzanne was very gracious at my decision and rejection of the offer – she knew that when I was ready to sell again that I would use her. When I was ready to sell again, I didn’t hesitate on who I would use. Suzanne does the best marketing of any realtor I’ve seen and made sure my home was at the forefront of both realtors and buyers. I was continuously updated on all marketing progress and was confident in Suzanne’s competence of the current housing market. I had a specialty home and if Suzanne was ever unsure of something regarding my home, she would make sure to contact the right people to get the right information before moving forward.

Through the process of selling, Suzanne was available if an issue arose and dependable staff walked me through the selling process taking care of all the details. Suzanne was always patient, even when I pushed her to her limits. She has become my friend, not just my realtor. She always went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I was happy and I got the most I could for my home.

I have recommended Suzanne several times and will continue to do so. I can confidently say that she is the best realtor I have ever worked with and that you can’t find a better, more personable and knowledgeable realtor in Colorado Springs.
Kevin
As personal representative for an estate, Suzanne listed and sold the house in an amazingly short period of time, about 2 months. We had an offer within two days actually above our asking price. I do attribute this to her knowledge of the market and the presentation with the pictures making the house attractive even with its rather unique characteristics. I was extremely impressed with her ability to work through some roadblocks and achieve the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend her as reliable and skilled in the real estate arena.
Cheryl Williams
We recently used Suzanne Holland for our real estate needs both selling our home and buying another one. We found her very professional, knowledgeable and customer oriented. My husband told her the first time he met her, “I don’t like or trust real estate agents!” Suzanne was not offended. She smiled and told him she was going to change his mind. She kept up with all of the paperwork and dates which made it a very smooth and painless process. Selling our home was quick and easy. But we had an extensive list of “must haves” for our new home. She was very patient with us and only showed us homes with our top wants. We ended up in the home of our dreams. It has all 14 “must haves” plus several things on our “nice to have” list.

Suzanne all provided us with names of movers, inspectors and financing. When we got to the new home there were a few snafus but I called Suzanne and she made everything right in a timely manner. When we were unpacking, I realized I had forgotten to pack my wind chimes from my old house. I called Suzanne and she called the other realtor and the next thing I knew they were at her office waiting for me to pick them up. I was very happy to get them back. I’ve enjoyed working with Suzanne; it was like working with an old friend. She’s personable and always keeps in touch. She makes you feel like you are her number one client. This is the third home we’ve bought and by far the easiest transaction. If we ever move again, we’d definitely use her again. I recommend Suzanne to anyone I know who is even considering buying or selling their home.
Mike and Tami Cunningham
After getting married and buying a home together it was time to let go of the home, I had purchased all by myself after the divorce. Although I was happy about all of the new changes in my life, it was still emotional. Suzanne walked me through every moment of listing, showings, contract, and closing with professionalism and caring about how I was feeling during each one of these steps. My husband and I anticipated it would take awhile to sell the townhome which would put a financial hardship on us. To our surprise Suzanne called with the wonderful news after only two weeks on the market that we had a full price, cash offer, closing within two weeks. We could not have been happier. If we have to repeat this process again with another home Suzanne will be the first person we call.
Donna Andrews
I’ve known Suzanne Holland for over a decade now and she is regarded as the ‘go-to’ realtor in my area (Top of Skyway) for any real estate related issues or transactions. She is a consummate professional and understands that building business relationships is not something that only starts when she lists a home.

A good example was a refinance that I’m currently doing on my home. I got an appraisal from the bank doing the refinance that I felt was low, so I called Suzanne. She did some research for me and within 48 hours sent me recent comps for my neighborhood, as well as personally communicating with my loan officer to answer any questions he might have on those comps.

Suzanne took time out of her day to do that research and did not charge me a dime for her time, telling me it was a service she provided. That’s why she will be the only person I go to when it’s time to sell my home.
Ric Rooney
What a wonderful surprise. Our house sold in less than a week and for a strong price. Suzanne was wonderful to work with. She knows her stuff, is professional, knows how to listen, and always kept us informed. As a seller, we were given her assessment of the market, but she was willing to listen as to why we thought our home was worth more. We explained that the large quiet view lot, walk out ranch with main level living, and a home in excellent move in condition (not to forget the oversized three car garage) as reasons for an over market asking price. Suzanne accepted our reasoning. Suzanne brought us a buyer and we sold before the For-Sale sign was posted to a wonderful couple from Texas who are retiring to Colorado Springs.
Bill and Gloria Robertson
To Whom It May Concern:

It is without hesitation that I write this letter of commendation for Broker Suzanne Holland of The Platinum Group. Suzanne was able to obtain a Buyer Agreement for our home within a few weeks of listing. She maintained the perfect balance of professionalism, patience, understanding and diplomacy. Her in-depth knowledge of the industry and market were of great value in selling our home.

It is important to note that during the past 35 years my wife and I relocated 12 times because of my position within the United States Department of Justice. We worked with several good Realtors and some not too impressive – regardless the experience was often stressful. Upon retiring with the government, I decided to obtain a Realtor license in Colorado (in order to sell my home and move to our “retirement” location in the mountains). As a licensed Realtor, I attempted to sell our home but was unsuccessful. Eventually I reached out to Suzanne because of her reputation for achieving the impossible. Suzanne succeeded our expectations in a stress-free manner.

Based on our experiences with selling and purchasing homes, Suzanne has been the best real estate agent that we have worked with. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality professional.
Bob and Charlotte Hood
We have known Suzanne Holland for many years. She helped us sell our house in Top of Skyway in 2009 and also buy another house in Top of Skyway in 2013 when we moved back to Colorado from Oregon. She had a lot of ideas on how to sell our house in a “down market” and was able to get the job done. Even more impressive was her ability to know which houses were coming on the market several months down the road. With the knowledge, we were able to find a new house to buy quickly. Suzanne also helped us find a mortgage broker that would be ready for closing in less than 30 days’ time. We were very impressed with that as we didn’t want to have our belongings come off the moving truck and end up in storage.

I highly recommend using Suzanne Holland if you are considering buying or selling your house in Colorado Springs. She will go overtime, if necessary, to get the job done.
Dr. and Mrs. Mark Diamond
I would recommend Suzanne to anyone I know in Colorado Springs. She was very professional and did more to help me than any other realtor I have ever dealt with. My son-in-law was pleased to have meet Suzanne, and though initially felt he was there to protect me, his wife’s mother, from any mishap, he quickly sensed that a real professional was in charge and that I was in good hands. Thanks again!
Pat Otto
The situation for selling my mother’s property was somewhat unusual in that given my mother’s condition, we had to move her out of state and I also live out of state. Clearly, managing the sale of a personal residence remotely is not an ideal situation.

I interviewed a number of real estate agents and after careful consideration, I awarded the contract to Suzanne Holland and The Platinum Group, Realtors.

Ms. Holland and her associates were very professional. They provide clear information on the good points and bad points of the property. They communicated effectively and in a timely fashion on the issues that occurred during the process. And given the additional aspect of remote management, I found that they gave sound advice that was practical and set reasonable expectations.

I would recommend Suzanne Holland and The Platinum Group, Realtors.
Jacob Murphree
I would like to express a very appreciative commendation for Ms. Suzanne Holland and her able administrative assistant, Angel Lewis, regarding the sale of residence at 2970 Electra Drive in Colorado Springs, CO.

Throughout the sale of my process they both represented me in an outstanding manner.

From the outset of this endeavor they were extraordinarily helpful to me regarding the traditional services provided by a Realtor as well as many allied courtesies. Everything from providing the names of a contractor who made repairs to the property to frequent supervisory visits to the house to taking care of miscellaneous details, such as collecting house keys.

Ms. Holland makes an extraordinary effort in advertising the property, holding open houses and coordinating with other Realtors concerning its availability.

Although I had worked for over a year making repairs and other improvements for its subsequent sale, the property was on the market for a long six-month period, predominantly due to its age. Suzanne and I went through the inevitable exercise of lowering the asking price some three times until, finally, the property had sufficient appealing to a buyer. Her advice was indispensable, due to her years in the profession, in helping me make proper, strategic decisions along the way.

I feel that both Suzanne and Angel took an extraordinary interest in my property and did everything they could, from suggesting occasional cosmetic improvements to placing it in all the appropriate advertising mediums, to sell it.

Judging from my two year relationship with this Realtor, I certainly highly recommend Ms. Holland, her aid and organization. They were all most professional, unfailingly honest and, in retrospect, represented me in the best possible way I could expect.
Donald Higginbotham
Suzanne demonstrated to us how to professionally present a home for sale. Prior to the listing, she outlined a course of action/marketing plan for our house. We were impressed with her follow through and commitment to excellence both in marketing our house and the number of her own personal showings.

We would highly recommend Suzanne to anyone who is considering selling his or her home and wants someone who will truly market a property versus take a listing.
Jim and Kelly Young
We highly recommend Suzanne Holland as a qualified and a dependable real estate broker. She is very thorough in her analysis and is very straightforward in her approach to selling your home. She knows the Colorado Springs market and does her homework in preparing you for selling your home. We sold our home during the height of the economic downturn last spring for more than we expected in a slow real estate market. Much of our success in selling our home was due to Suzanne’s marketing, our preparation, and good timing. Suzanne’s experience more than speaks for itself when you meet her. We are grateful to Suzanne and her team for a job well done!
Darnell and Sandra Dent
It’s always difficult to be faced with the sale of your home, but I would like to recommend someone who made that process much simpler for me. I am writing to tell you Ms. Suzanne Holland was a pleasure to work with as a realtor. Throughout the entire process Suzanne was professional, honest, and motivated. She kept me well-informed and up to date on the progress of my home sale, from her beginning analysis to the final closing paperwork.

This is a particularly hard time to be entering the real estate market but I am confident that Suzanne will know the current trends and help you to appropriately price your home while meeting your financial needs. She not only gave me sound advice, but worked very hard to make my transition to California easier. After I moved, Suzanne continued to work at selling my home, going the extra mile to keep my property in show condition and making all of the complicated arrangements necessary for the sale of me being out-of-state.

I would be very pleased to recommend Suzanne Holland to anyone planning to list their home.
Lori Fujimoto
Suzanne made our recent move to the Springs as trouble-free and enjoyable as possible, given the joys of making a move. She listened to our wants, needs, and really helped us pin down those exact details, even when it seemed to her we were changing our minds constantly. She knew that was the process that we needed to go through in order to find the place for us that we would not regret later. Suzanne didn’t interject her opinions unless they were solicited by us, so in that way we didn’t feel that we were being pushed in any particular direction.

She made it become OUR choice. With her relentless cheerfulness and professionalism, I would very happily recommend her to friends and neighbors as their agent whenever that need arose for them.
Sylvia and Jim Strubel
Week after week we hear about the gloomy real estate market and we smile. Our experience with Suzanne was anything but gloomy! Thanks for making the sale of one home and the purchase of another so painless.

We are a demanding and over-scheduled family and Suzanne met our needs and accommodated our schedule by doing lots of meticulous preparation and crucial legwork. I doubt many realtors are as conscientious and responsive as she is!

We appreciate Suzanne’s insight into how to enhance the house and her innovative marketing ideas on how to sell the house. While no one appreciates having to keep their house “show ready,” she did a good job of bundling the viewings, providing adequate notice, and following-up with agents and seeking feedback. And when the offers came in, she provided variable counsel to craft the best on for us. These services are vital to quick and painless sales – like ours.

Thanks to Suzanne for all of her hard work and dedication. She makes us feel like VIPs.
Dale and Melissa Hortik
This was not an easy transaction. We had moved back to Colorado from Florida and rented an apartment for a year and a half, postponing buying a house partly because we were unable to agree upon what we wanted. In navigating this sale to a close, Suzanne had to contend with an endless succession of challenges, including relationship issues, numerous undisclosed or undiscovered maintenance problems (from furnace to electrical), dead trees that were supposed to be removed and weren’t right up to closing day, and multiple rounds of financing falling through. We’re talking quirky buyers, quirky sellers, and quirky property. Not only did she go above and beyond to help us resolve all of the above and more, she handled it all with grace and humor. I leaned on her hard and she was there for me every time. And incredibly – it worked! We closed! We moved! We love it here!

As a real estate agent, Suzanne is knowledgeable, resourceful, hardworking, and diligent. She is a good communicator, hearing not only what is being said but what is “between the lines” and responding with thoughtful and caring advice. As a person, her integrity and good character separate her from the crowd.
Helena HoTseung
I am writing this letter to very highly recommend Suanne Holland as the best realtor I have personally worked with. My wife and I used Suzanne both to sell our last home, and also to buy our new home. She was excellent in both areas.

She came to our home and counseled us on things we could do to increase the selling price and speed up the sale. Our home was on the market for just 6 days and we had a contract for just barely under our asking price. Suzanne took care of everything in the selling process and the deal closed without a hitch.

The buying process was complicated a bit by a nasty realtor used by the seller. I felt great having Suzanne in our corner because she stood her ground with him and got us a great deal despite him. She was very professional but tough, making sure we were well represented and protected. This deal also closed very smoothly. Suzanne also recommended an excellent home inspector and lender which really helped to make the buying process more satisfying.

I must admit I was very skeptical when talking to my wife about Suzanne before I met her. We had a bad experience buying our last home due to a realtor who didn’t always have our best interests in mind. This realtor was also a pushover when it came to negotiations and standing up for us as her clients. Let me just say that Suzanne erased any doubts I had very quickly and did an outstanding job for us. I can’t recommend her highly enough to you. A good realtor is not just there to help you buy or sell a home, but also acts as a counselor, psychiatrist, and friend. Buying and selling a home is a very stressful thing, and it is so nice to have someone you can trust and depend on in your corner. Suzanne Holland is that person.

I have had the pleasure of working directly with Suzanne Holland on two personal real estate transactions and indirectly observed over a dozen transactions for relocating employees of our company.

We have been very pleased with the professional approach Suzanne has shown in representing both buyers and sellers. She has consistently applied extensive local market knowledge with a positive enthusiasm to create many effective transactions over the last few years. Her willingness to exceed the expectations of her clients has been a pleasure to observe and is the fundamental key to her success.

I sold my home last year, but I didn’t want to do it. It was a very tough process for me and my family because we never planned to move. My two daughters, ages 5 and 7, were disappointed and anxious, and my husband had to deal with the emotions of three females.

Suzanne Holland helped us all through the process of feeling sad, getting over it, and moving forward. She would entertain my children during our planning meetings by providing coloring books and other goodies for them so that I could focus on the task of selling my home. Suzanne helped us stage our home by connecting us with a wonderful interior designer who worked with our furnishings to make our home look fantastic. She also helped us look at available homes in our price range – even though our price range was all over the map. Suzanne never complained or made it difficult for us to see a home. She was always ready to go and available for as long as we needed her. She stuck with us until we found the home that was just right for us and she never tried to talk us into anything.

Suzanne marketed our home prior to listing it, arranged for a realtor luncheon the day it listed, and got our first appointment for showing within 10 minutes posting our home on the MLS. We had a contract on our home by 5pm that day and a back-up contract that same week.

I have met quite a few real estate agents as this was not my first home-selling-buying experience. I had never before been given the intense caring that Suzanne provided me and my family.

Let me just tell you about Suzanne Holland. She both helped me buy and sell my first house ever. She did such an amazing job and was so patient, enthusiastic, and wise, that I sent another 4 sales her ways when my friends were moving around. Suzanne is so experienced and really walked us through everything. Her office and staff are true professionals. Suzanne is now a friend as well as someone I would absolutely use again if I ever came back to the Colorado Front Range and was in the market for a home. Love is not too strong a word for how you'll feel and how you'll be treated.
