Great experience with real estate closings!
Susan Kim and her staff were very efficient handling my three real estate closings. I felt comfortable contacting them with questions, and they responded in a timely manner. I would recommend them!

You Want her on Your Side
We have worked with Susan on 3 closings so far. All have been very smooth with zero delays and great communication! Susan is personable, efficient, organized and excellent at what she does and so is her staff! They explain things at a level that we understand. Highly recommended!

Very Thorough and Efficient
I've been moved quite a few times due to my work, and I can say Susan is the most efficient and responsive attorney that I've work with. Especially, I appreciate her professionalism and proficiency. Susan stayed very professional in all aspects throughout the process, and not to mention she stand behind her client completely. Thanks to Susan, I had full confidence and was able to deal with very very difficult sellers. I would definitely refer her to anyone I know any day.

Very Efficient and Thorough!
Susan helped us tremendously throughout the process of us purchasing our first home. There were a ton of terms and steps that we didn't know about, and Susan was extremely helpful in explaining those to us newbies. Closing went perfect and we can't thank her enough.

Highly recommended!
Susan and her team represented us in the sale of our condo. She is an expert on her field, super clear and easy to work with. We felt we were in good hands all the time. Susan was very responsive to our questions and concerns and her team is also as dedicated and responsive as she is. I highly recommend her!

Wonderful attorney! Retained for sale and purchase
My wife and I retained Susan for the sale of our home and purchase of a new home. Susan was a great negotiator, and had a strong attention to detail. She has a background in education, and made an otherwise new and foreign process very easy to understand. I hope not to move for a long time, but if I do, I know exactly who I'll be retaining as my attorney - I cannot recommend Susan highly enough!

Great attorney!
Susan was wonderful to work with. She answered all of the questions we had and responded very quickly. She explained things slowly and in depth to us as first time home owners. Would work with Susan again if we ever needed her services!

Excellent attorney!! Very helpful!
Susan was extremely helpful when my husband and I bought our first home. She responded within an hour or two to our emails and texts and walked us through the closing process. She was patient and explained everything in detail and always kept us updated on negotiations with the seller's attorney. She made our closing process much less stressful and I highly recommend her services.

Quick Response/Hard Worker
Susan was our lawyer for a real estate sale of our condo. She represented us very well. She was a strong advocate for us when a couple areas of difficulty came up. She communicated well with the buyers attorney and she would respond quickly to any questions we had along the way. She helped us understand everything that was needed to get done and we were able to close in about 45 days from contract to closing. I would use her again.

A true Godsend
I worked with Susan to purchase my home and I can’t say enough good things about her. She made sure I understood everything that was going on and made sure I was aware of all my options. She informed me of what standard practice was and what it wasn’t. She always had her finger on the pulse of the entire process and made sure we stayed on track. She was very responsive when issues did arise and made sure I had stellar representation. She is knowledgeable, approachable, personable, endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (over the course of several months).

Very knowledgeable
Susan was outstanding to work with. Her knowledge and professionallism made our first home buying experience less frightening. Susan took the time to explain and answer any questions before we signed any papers. She made myself and fiancé the top priority and for that we are extremely grateful. We will be using Susan for any of our legal needs going forward and would recommend her to anyone.

No call
She didn't bother calling me back. Must be too busy. Had to put "consulted" to get review through, but did not.
