We recently had the wonderful experience of working with Suzanne McGhee as we searched for a home in the Tallahassee area. We are new to Florida, and Suzanne’s extensive knowledge about all aspects of the home buying process was very helpful to us. She is familiar with all area of town and gave us a good idea of what was available in Tallahassee…but recognized from the beginning that we were ‘Lake People’ at heart. Suzanne referred us to reliable people for home inspections and repairs, and she directed us to a great loan officer when it was time to obtain our mortgage.
Suzanne was wonderful about staying in contact with us throughout the process. She sent us new listings on a regular basis, and kept us well informed as we went through each step of purchasing a home. Suzanne was overwhelmingly patient as we looked at house after house, and in the end, she found the perfect home for us on Lake Talquin. Buying a home is stressful, but Suzanne’s hard work, vast knowledge base and great sense of humor made the experience a pleasure.
Living on Lake Talquin is a little slice of heaven. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous, and we love having egrets, herons, osprey and turtles in our back yard. Everyday when we walk through the door we feel like we’re coming home to a peaceful, mini vacation. It’s an easy, stress-free 20 minute drive to the west side of Tallahassee, where we do most of our shopping, and just a couple of minutes farther to FSU. Our favorite activities now are boating over to the Whippoorwill restaurant for lunch or relaxing on our back porch with friends. Life doesn’t get much better than this, and we’re thrilled we ended up at Lake Talquin.
We were looking for a very specific piece of property – undeveloped lake front land with a sense of seclusion, near the Gulf of Mexico, near hospitals and other governmental services, and not too far from an airport. We looked long and hard along the entire Gulf Coast and finally found Lake Talquin. Suzanne McGhee helped us purchase a property that met all of our criteria and now we will have a unique place for our family to spend time enjoying nature in a serene environment. It may take a while for us to finish our project and actually build a home on the lake, but we will still enjoy the wildlife on the property and the fish in the lake as we make progress.
We currently reside in Texas and expected that purchasing a property in another state would be a challenging event. We truly appreciate the patience, diligence and extra effort that Suzanne put into making this deal work out “long distance” with minimal issues. This was also our first experience dealing with a transaction broker acting as both buyers and sellers agent. Everything went smoothly due to her extensive knowledge of the local community and real estate sales process, but more importantly due to her integrity and ability to keep both parties engaged and focused on the best result for all.
Suzanne was fantastic. Gave wonderful guidance and spent as much time as we needed in viewing homes. Her help in gaining the right financing was critical to our closing on time.
Would strongly reccomend!!
Suzanne was of great assistance to us when we recently shopped and bought a house in Gadsden County, Florida. She is an excellent representative of her profession and her firm. I would not hesitate to recommend or employ her again. Totally easy and professional to deal with.
We had been looking for a lakefront home on Lake Talquin for about 5 years during which time we had looked a dozens of homes. After having dealt with several other realtors, we contacted Suzanne in late Feb 2012. She immediately began providing listings based on our criteria and after looking at 6-8 homes we had not found our dream home. Suzanne knows Lake Talquin properties better than any other relator we had dealt with and because of that knowledge she was able to recall a home that had been previously listed but wasn’t currently on the market. She contacted the owners and surprisingly they were interested in selling. She helped us negotiate a very fair purchase price and helped us during every step of the process. Meeting inspectors at the property, serving as a go between with our mortgage company and handling anything else we needed during our purchase Suzanne was incredible. Her helpful manner was such a blessing because were conducting the transaction from about 250 miles away and were not always available to meet with folks and work out issues thankfully Suzanne was willing to do that for us. We would readily recommend Suzanne McGhee to anyone looking for property in Leon County or the surrounding area. She is open, honest, and helpful beyond measure. In short Suzanne helped us realize a life long dream and found us the perfect property and during the process made us feel as if we were her only customers. Our experience with Suzanne could not have been more pleasant or rewarding.
