negotiating closing details, simply top-notch. Sue is thorough,
conscientious, and knowledgeable. The result was a very smooth and
profitable transaction. Highly recommended. -- Jay H.

 
5 STARS! Bought a Montecito condo in 2020
We were so lucky to find Sue and work with her as our agent. We wanted to buy a vacation home and didn't know any agents in town. Luckily another agent was too busy to work with us and passed us along to Sue -- and it was smooth sailing from there! Sue not only helped us find the perfect place for us, but went above and beyond by taking care of everything for us as we live out of town. Her follow through was much appreciated and besides that she is just a nice person to work with. If you want a great experience buying a place in Santa Barbara county, I would highly highly recommend Sue. - Elisa T.

Sue is a great pleasure to work with. She's a quick thinker and knows all the ins and outs of the home purchasing process, negotiations, timing, and tactfulness. I'd definitely buy another house from her, sell mine with her, and recommend to friends :) Lucas L.

5 STARS! Listed & sold a Santa Barbara home in 2020
Selling the family home that you were raised in is a very emotional ordeal. I was unsure on what repairs needed to be done to get the home on the market. One hour after I called Kit, both she and Sue were at our home. After a grand tour of the property, the potential was discussed. They suggested some minor repairs and a little painting to make it ready for sale. Then staged the home so tastefully using a combination of our furniture and their decor. The property was ready to list and a nice offer was received on the 4th day after the first open house. The home sold to the couple who made the first offer. Their guidance through the maze of legal documents was fully appreciated. Working with Sue and Kit was such a wonderful experience. Their expertise in the Real Estate business is amazing. They literally lit the fire under my fanny to get the job done. I am very thankful that I called. Would highly recommend this exceptional team. -- Judy M.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara condo in 2019
Sue is tenacious, diligent, organized, super savvy, and just an all-around pleasure to work with. As a first time home buyer, I was so appreciative of her patience, extensive knowledge, intuition, and guidance throughout the process. Sue really listened to my priorities, worked with my schedule, and helped me quickly find a perfect home. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor or done it without her! -- Dana L.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2019
Sue was our realtor for a recent home purchase. What quickly impressed us about Sue was you could tell she was very genuine about wanting to help us find the right home versus just making a sale/commission. She would ask probing questions of sellers/seller realtors. She would recommend against places that we looked at when she felt it wasn't right for our family. She was super helpful with all the inspections we did including being present when we could not be there and helping us get repair estimates for the items we uncovered. I know a lot of people feel they get all the information they need form online sites but Sue really demonstrated to us how a good realtor makes a big difference. -- Franklin K.

5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara condo in 2019
Sue made the process of purchasing my first condo SO easy! She gelled incredibly well with myself and both of my parents (which is a skill not to be taken lightly), and really knew how to ease anxieties and answer questions in an informed and helpful way, and excelled at juggling all three of our interests while cheerily steering us all towards a mutually-agreeable outcome, which was so appreciated. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and really has a knack for knowing what you need and what will work - even if you're not entirely sure yourself! Sue is organized, straight-shooting and "on it" when it comes to timelines, which put us all at ease. She has a lot of experience and it shows! I really couldn't imagine a better buying experience, and am so grateful for her guidance and support! -- Megan T.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2019
Sue is AMAZING! Sue helped us purchase our 1st house in SB in 2013, and now helped us sell it. It was not easy, but she cares so much which I couldn't imagine any other agent could do the same level. And she is very detail oriented and organized which saved us a lot of time. What's more, her personality, her communication skill, and her expertise etc. all built up her reputation among all agents. If you ever worked with her, you will definitely love her and recommend her to your friends! - Wenjing C.
 
5 STARS! Listed and sold a Santa Barbara condo in 2019
Sue's expertise, professionalism, high ethical standards, personable manner and excellent communication skills were evident throughout the whole sales process. Her knowledge of the market ensured excellent results quickly. She immediately connected us with the right buyer at the right time for our condo. From the beginning, she set expectations appropriately, ensured everyone stayed on schedule and maintained close communication. She is conscientious, focused and a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend Sue. - Gage R.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2018
Sue was very knowledgeable about the area and quickly refined my interests into a few excellent options to view. I ended up purchasing a home very quickly from one of these options. Sue followed up promptly and with good communication on all of the details related to the sale and paperwork (as one unfamiliar with purchasing a home in California this guidance was essential). Her positive, calm and professional approach to all aspects of the transaction was much appreciated, as our timeline was pretty aggressive. I highly recommend working with Sue Irwin. -- David K.
 
5 STARS!  Listed and sold a Goleta condo in 2018

Part of our reason for choosing Sue to represent our mountain properties was her familiarity with the mountain "lifestyle". But her easy and sensitive personality were a plus and her attention to details (especially the legal ones) was essential. Because the sales went through so successfully I chose her to be my buying agent recently. All three experiences were exceptionally rewarding. -- Suzi J.

Sue Irwin is an amazing real estate agent. I recently completed two transactions with Sue and they were both handled beautifully. She’s very organized, listens to what your needs are, is well respected by the other brokers, helps with each and every document, provide the buyer/seller with a detailed calendar describing what to expect during the transaction, is excellent at negotiating, and is simply a pleasure to work with. She’s an out the box thinker and gets the job done! I would highly recommend Sue Irwin to any prospective buyer or seller. -- Ruthy E.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2018;
Sold a Goleta condo in 2018; & Sold a Goleta condo in 2016 
August 2018 Review Once again, my wife and I turned to Sue - our realtor and friend - to help us with a purchase and sale in the Santa Barbara area. Sue is deeply committed, knowledgeable, and professional. Our transaction was lengthy, complex, and emotionally trying. Some specifics of how she added value: - regular communication - detailed calendars of what needs to happen when - making trips to County offices to advocate for us, and writing convincing letters to the officers - researching home warranties - remaining supportive when we changed our minds - providing excellent recommendations, such as mortgage lender and geologist (a geologist inspection can be a good idea in some areas of SB) - finding an affordable, short-term rental I HIGHLY recommend Sue, she is an exceptional realtor with the highest integrity. Summer 2016 Review In short, Sue is a sharp, graceful, deeply knowledgeable realtor who is HIGHLY committed to her clients, the community and the profession. Please read on for more detail! My wife and I met Sue at an open house, and we learned that she is not only a realtor, but also an innovator. Among other things, she spearheaded development of an open house aggregation service on her website, and she publishes a newsletter on the pulse of the market, replete with helpful statistics and graphics. When we were looking to sell our condo, I reached out to Sue by email. I heard from her within an hour and two days later she came for a visit armed with a HIGHLY organized, comprehensive book including a one-pager for our property and a complete breakdown and analysis of local comps. My wife and I exchanged glances that said: um...yes...you are THE ONE. Sue and her assistant held regularly scheduled open houses and broker open houses and this brought in a buyer with a strong offer within one month of listing. The negotiations were complex as the deal was nearly a commercial deal with several moving parts. Real estate, like other business transactions, can result in strong emotions and unintended consequences. Sue was able to masterfully help guide us through some thorny issues, maintaining her composure and professionalism. Sue is a rare gem: a go-getter with an easygoing manner. I give her my highest recommendation. -- Adam T.
 
5 STARS! Bought 2 Ventura duplexes in 2017
I worked with Sue for about a year in purchasing two duplex investment properties. Our work carefully followed IRS 1031 exchange regulations that had specific requirements for identifying and closing properties. Both purchases involved different challenges that allowed me to see the range and depth of Sue’s consummate real estate skills in action. In one case she dealt effectively with a less-motivated (lazy) agent, doing far more than I expected to help the other agent close the deal. In another instance she dealt humanely with a tenant who, as they say, “had issues”. This showed me Sue’s high-quality people skills—she is able to work with a variety of types under challenging circumstances. Sue was so very well organized—she prepared a week-by-week schedule of activities that would occur, deadline dates, documents that needed attention, etc. She followed up with reminders and clear instructions. Her communication was concise and professional. She made complex real estate issues understandable. Sometimes she needed to translate my rants, expressing them in more effective ways to sellers. Sue was also very resourceful—she researched information on property values, sales prices, quality of schools, potential rental prices for an area, and other information important to a buyer. She also was well-networked, and made referrals to good resources (from inspectors to lenders to electricians). Sue was able to see the “big picture” in complex real estate transactions, while keeping her eye on details. Her resourcefulness was also evidenced when negotiating offers and requests for repairs of potential properties. This skill kept my offers and costs well within reason. With Sue’s expertise, I obtained two solid properties that fit my needs, all within the timeframe I needed for the purchases. She was also very much available—quite reachable through email or phone. Sue Irwin is an outstanding agent. Top notch consummate professional. I found Sue warm, intelligent, funny, sincere, and trustworthy. Without hesitation, she is a professional whom I would call upon again in real estate transactions, and also to whom I would recommend to my close friends as a trusted resource. -- Art O.

Sue is great. I have purchased several homes over the years and this was by far the best experience I have had. Sue is honest, responsive and very easy to work with. I would recommend Sue for your next home purchase. -- Kevin M.
 
5 STARS! Sold a Santa Barbara condo in 2016
My husband and I met Sue several years ago, when we were thinking of selling our townhouse and buying a different property. We met with her several times over those years, and each time she engaged with us completely, working up current sales prices and current properties available, as well as suggesting what things we might consider doing to upgrade our house for sale. Unfortunately, I lost my husband to cancer, and decided to sell our vacation home this past Spring. I live across the country, so contacted Sue to see if she could help me get things in order so that I could begin the sales process in the month that I would be out in CA. She was highly responsive, and took steps to get the process underway before I even arrived. By the time I got there, we were ready to go. We found a buyer almost immediately, and Sue then handled every detail of the transaction, including all the negotiation, all the paperwork, and all the arrangement of services I needed--from plumber, painter, handyman, to pest control treatment and finding someone to undertake a house sale to sell or dispose of everything left in the unit when I had to return home. She made an emotionally complex event for me one that went smoothly in every aspect, and I am so grateful to her for that. Cannot recommend her highly enough. She is superb! -- Martha P.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara townhome in 2016
Sue was referred to us by a friend. Her assistance with our Santa Barbara home search and purchase far exceeded our expectations! Sue has a very pleasant, easy going and patient style. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Santa Barbara real estate market and enlightened us on the best property options to fit our needs. Over a series of 3-4 visits to Santa Barbara, Sue helped us see a wide variety of options in the downtown, Mesa and Lower Riviera areas. Once we found a home that we loved, Sue was a great asset in negotiating our purchase and inspection follow-up requests. She has stayed closely involved in helping us with a great variety of local contacts and has invested extra time to help us get settled. For example, we were out of town and Sue watered our plants regularly until an irrigation system was installed. We highly recommend Sue for any real estate needs you may have in Santa Barbara. -- Owen P.
 
5 STARS! Listed and sold a Santa Barbara condo in 2016
Sue guided us through buying our first home in 2004, and helped us sell it in 2016. In both transactions, Sue was excellent to work with. On both occasions, Sue spent time with us to figure out what we were looking for, and to inform us what our options are. We had rented our house out for 8 years, and it needed fixing. She was extremely patient and detail-oriented through the entire process. She did a great job with the staging. We received multiple offers at our asking price within the first few days that the house was on the market, while other comparable homes that were listed at around the same time are still on the market. We highly recommend her as a realtor in the Santa Barbara area. - Nirmal B.

5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2016
Sue was a wonderful support throughout our emotional process of house hunting in Santa Barbara. She listened to our concerns and comments patiently while showing interest in gaining knowledge of our specific taste. Sue guided us through the escrow in a very organized and experienced fashion. Her calm, soft manner is highly valuable when one is making possibly the largest purchase of a lifetime.

Sue was everything we could have hoped for in a Realtor and more. Her expert knowledge and hard work made selling our first home so successful. Although she has many clients we felt like we were her only clients since she was always available when we needed her and worked tirelessly to sell our home! Top notch agent, we highly recommend her. -- Lynsey T.

5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2015
Sue is a great listener who has a 'soft sales' approach--one that is of the best interest of her client. She is very knowledgeable of the local SB County market and trends. She is diligent in follow up and on leads for potential and upcoming houses on the market. If you are in the market to purchase a new house--or list a house--we would highly recommend her to be your agent! - Sergio G.

Sue was wonderful to work with. Her knowledge, genuine concern and responsiveness provided me invaluable peace of mind during my transaction.

5 STARS! Bought an Santa Barbara home in 2015
Knowledgeable, responsive, and committed (to her clients) are three words I would use to describe Sue Irwin. Sue took the time to understand our wants and needs. She used this information to identify homes that met our specifications and fell within our budget. She was tenacious in her desire to find a home that matched our needs. Once we identified a home, Sue was skillful in negotiating price and terms that met our expectations. After the sale was completed, Sue continued to provide support by recommending excellent contractors, landscapers, and other service providers. When we were unavailable to be at the home for contractors and other situations (we live on the east coast) Sue was there to represent our interests. Her willingness to support us in this way exceeded our expectations. Most importantly though, is Sue's personality toward her clients: calm, patient, and trustworthy. I could not be happier with my experience with Sue. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home!!! Thank you Sue!!!! Mira L.

Sue managed the whole process from start to finish while we were abroad in Germany. We did not know much about the real estate market nor about the sales process. Sue explained all the options we had, gave us the data we needed to make our decisions about timing and pricing, and it turned out she was right on target with her advice. Since Sue is well connected and respected in the real estate community, it did not take more than one open house and a few targeted contacts to get the offers we wanted. She knew exactly the target market for our property and addressed it very efficiently. The negotiations went smoothly and were fair throughout, she stired us through all the presale paperwork while we were abroad. The sale closed without any problems or complications thanks to Sue's excellent management. We can highly and wholeheartedly recommend her. -- Gerhard R.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Montecito home in 2015
I was browsing Zillow and came across Sue Irwin. After one phone call, I knew she understood what I wanted and she immediately started sending me great options. Within a matter of weeks, Sue had found the home of my dreams in Montecito! She is an expert in the market and her professionalism came through on every level. Sue consistently went above and beyond the call of duty throughout the entire process. It was seamless and much less stressful thanks to Sue and her expertise. She is a fabulous realtor who knows the area very well and is now a life long friend! I highly recommend her for anyone that is serious about obtaining the home of their dreams. -- Eileen B.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2015
We recently purchased property in Santa Barbara with Sue's invaluable help. Our purchase was the up-leg of a 1031 tax-deferred exchange and she was knowledgeable in all aspects of this type of transaction. Because we are from No. California, Sue shared her insights into each of the Santa Barbara neighborhoods. Through her network connections, she was able to show us a property that was off the market and it was the perfect property for us! Throughout the transaction, Sue was incredibly organized and kept the process moving smoothly and on time. She set up all inspections for us, and her cadre of tradesmen were reliable and professional. Sue responded immediately to every call or e-mail. Everything was like clock work and stress-free. Sue personifies excellence in real estate professionalism. I can't recommend her highly enough! - Candy M.

5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2015
We felt that Sue Irwin was very knowledgable and provided excellent service. Attention to detail was a strength. This was our 2nd time working with her. First time was as a buyer and the 2nd as the seller. Both experiences were fantastic. I especially liked how accessible she was and provided immediate updates throughout the process. All in all we feel that Sue Irwin is a hard working and wonderful Realtor. 

5 STARS! Bought a Goleta home in 2013
We have worked with Sue to purchase our residence, and our experience was just excellent. She was very helpful in educating us about the process and the market, very patient and never pushy, great listener, and we particularly appreciated her honesty and integrity (she got us out of a bad escrow because that was in our interest). She worked with our schedule, and provided valuable insight and service. She is top notch when it comes to the house buying process, and we always felt in good hands with Sue. She was also helpful in finding contractors to fix a few items on the house before we moved in. We have since recommended her to a few of our friends.

   Very honest about her opinion.
   Knows well about school district and current market
Anyways, we are very happy about our house (have been there for 1+ year), didn't see even single one better house in the past year (was watching the market for a while), highly recommend her!
 
5 STARS! Listed and sold a Santa Barbara home in 2014
Sue helped my brother and me sell my parent's condo. Our parents were moving to a retirement/assisted living facility. Sue was wonderful dealing with our parents during the process which was emotional for all of us. Sue gave us great advice on what needed to be fixed since the condo had a lot of deferred maintenance. Sue's recommendation on "pricing to sell" was excellent since we were selling in the fall and the market was tough back in 2011. We were in escrow within three weeks with a very strong buyer. Sue's attention to detail and follow through made the process as easy as possible for us. I highly recommend Sue as a caring and very experienced professional.

Even when we despaired, We can't recommend Sue Irwin enough! She went above and beyond in helping us get our dream home. The market was tough and almost every house we made an offer on had multiple offers. Even when we despaired, she never gave up on us. When our house came up for sale, she dropped everything she was doing to make our offer immediately. It was accepted within 24 hours and now we couldn't be happier! Sue found us our perfect home!

Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2014
We decided to work with Sue based on having known her ever since we visited Santa Barbara for the first time in 1998. We gave her the tasks of selling one house and finding another one all at the same time. And she did it (well, I helped a bit on the finding) She negotiated a great deal! Working with Sue was always a pleasure she responded so very quickly to all our questions and speculations. -- Edward E.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2014
Moving back to Santa Barbara after being in Boston for many years, we were nervous about where to start to look for a house. Sue was highly recommended by a friend, set us up immediately with access to the new listings, and helped us evaluate the market. Competition was high, and Sue was quick to get us in to see houses, remaining very organized, detailed oriented and meticulous. She communicated effectively with us and with various brokers, gave great advice on bidding, and kept our spirits up though the competitive process in a hot market. She found the perfect house for us, made closing look like a breeze, and was there for us from beginning until we closed on our wonderful home. -- Marie J.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Carpinteria mobile home in 2014
I highly recommend Sue Irwin as a real estate agent because of great work ethic always getting back to me ASAP,whenever anything came up, very responsive. Very good market knowledge in my price range, Sue represented me on the purchase of a home and me through all aspects of buying, escrow how to deal with the bank, the seller,etc, she made it easy.We closed escrow on time, (30 days) all went smooth. After escrow closed and had a big rain storm found out that roof was in worst shape than we thought she helped negotiate with seller to pay for part of new roof, plus paid some of it out of her own pocket. Sue rocks,outstanding job!!!! I would use her again in a heartbeat. Thanks Sue, Brad
 
5 STARS! Bought a Goleta home in 2014
I highly recommend Sue Irwin to anyone looking to buy a home in Santa Barbara. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, and sincerely cares about finding the house that best suits your needs and wants. She is down to earth, friendly, and applies no pressure so it never feels like she is trying to make a sale. She worked with my husband and I for almost a year before we finally found the right home in the right neighborhood. At that point, Sue worked diligently at all hours to ensure we got our offer in as quickly as possible. Even then, there were many other offers submitted to the sellers and we believe ours was selected as a result of Sue’s good relationship with the seller’s agent and her ability to negotiate while keeping things friendly and positive. In fact, throughout our search for a home, we went to many open houses and whenever we mentioned Sue’s name, the selling agent always had good things to say about her. It felt good to know we were working with such a wonderful person who was so well liked and respected by others in her profession. She has served on multiple committees, is “green “ certified, and puts out a very informative newsletter several times a year to help educate people on changes in the real estate market. In the 5 years since we purchased our home, we have referred several people to Sue and they have had nothing but good things so say about her. I still see Sue’s name on their invite lists for baby showers and kids’ birthday parties – a tribute to the quality of person she is.

I highly recommend Sue Irwin to help you buy or sell your home or condo. Sue knows Santa Barbara. Both savvy and knowledgeable about the SB real estate market, Sue got me a great deal on a home I love. She has had excellent suggestions for where and when to buy and has been readily and easily available. Also, Sue is kind, fun, and easy to work with. Whenever I have a question about my condo, I turn to Sue. Even several years after buying my home, she continues to keep in touch and make caring and thoughtful recommendations about how best to upgrade my home and who to call on for everything from refinancing to painting. Great experience working with her - highly recommend! -- Heather H.
 
5 STARS! Bought a Santa Barbara home in 2013
Sue helped us purchase our first home. We looked at countless properties, and she never made us feel rushed to make a decision and always had a positive attitude. She made us feel that the wait was worth it and, in time, we would find exactly what we needed. Once we started the escrow process, Sue was actively making sure that our needs were met and that the process went as smoothly as possible.
