Sue Johnson is, quite simply, as good as it gets, and I wholeheartedly recommend her for your real estate needs. As a previous reviewer commented, I cannot imagine that anyone is better in this line of work than Sue.
From the very beginning, Sue went far above and beyond to help my spouse and I find the perfect new home. She took incredible initiative from the get-go, driving around the city to preview dozens of homes while we were still out of town, saving us unnecessary trips to SA with a young baby in tow. She seemed to have an acute sense of what we needed in a home (even before we did!), showing us only the very best options for our needs. For us, Sue had the ability to actually make buying a home a positive, almost (dare I say) fun process. For this, I credit her confidence, genuine passion for her work, her ability to logically talk us through options and choices, and her incredibly high level of expertise in her field. She also possessed the uncanny ability to shield us from the day-to-day stress of buying a home, absorbing and addressing challenges herself, and then letting us know after the fact that something had transpired and already been resolved. To me, this is the sign of a true professional at the top of her game.
Beyond her high level of expertise, Sue immediately took us and our family under her wing, providing a sense of safe haven and refuge in an often crazy real estate world. She was truly ‘there’ for us, whether that was a lunch to talk out options, a quick text message to check in, or a late-night confidence-boosting phone call in the midst of the transaction. During what was a very hectic time in our lives, the purchase of our new home was a positive experience and we are grateful every day that we placed our trust in her (and vice versa!) to help us find the perfect new place to call home.
Sue is enormously well-connected in San Antonio, having lived here for several decades, and was able to provide us with referrals for not only home improvement projects (all of whom were a pleasure to work with), but a local church, restaurants, and other fun places to visit with our little one. I should mention that Sue also helped my in-laws, also new in town, purchase a lovely home that they are exceedingly happy with.
But the biggest bonus of working with Sue? We now have a lifelong forever-friend in our lives! We keep up with each other almost weekly and we still feel like we’ve known each other for ages. In fact, without hesitation we invited her to our son’s first birthday party just a few days after closing. Does it get any better than that? Do yourself a favor and call Sue.

“We have been very fortunate to have Sue help us look for a home to buy in 2005 and sell our current house in 2014. We interviewed 5 other agents before selecting Sue. Her knowledge of the Hill Country market is top notch. Her professionalism and follow through can’t be beat. And to top it off she is the nicest, happiest person you’d ever want to meet.
If you are looking for good old fashioned service with an honest, intelligent REALTOR®, we are sure Sue Johnson will leave you as pleased and impressed as we were.”

“Sue – Thank you very much for the sweet message and for checking in!! We are very much in love with the house and still moving the last bit of our things over there.
You really made us feel comfortable with purchasing the house and helping us find that perfect home. We are forever grateful for that!! When we are ready to upgrade to our next home, we will definitely be contacting you again, but do want to stay in touch until then. Thank you again, we really appreciate all of the help, guidance, and support you provided for us!!”
—Laura & Cody Ward
“Sue – Thank you so much for your help! It is still hard to believe we are homeowners. This is the house where Bowen will take his first steps, and grow up. We can never thank you enough for being a part of helping us get our home. There have been a lot of change recently, but we are really starting to settle in. We have made some cosmetic changes, and the house is really starting to look like our dream home!”
—Jordan & Kara Tindol
“Without a doubt, hands down the best experience we could have for our home purchase. Sue A. Johnson was the absolute best to work with again. Sue was professional, accessible, knowledgeable, and just a pleasure to have as part of our ‘family’ during the home-buying experience. AMAZING!! Sue A. Johnson is the epitome of excellence in all areas! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a broker and real state expert in the San Antonio area.”
—Floyd and Zina Wormley, San Antonio
“I cannot imagine that anyone, anywhere, is doing this job better than Sue. I recommend that anyone reading this do whatever you can to get her as your real estate agent. As first-time home buyers in a hot market, my wife and I really needed someone who we could trust to take care of us and help us to understand more about the process. From day one Sue made us feel as if we’d been long-time friends and exuded a sense of confident control, which we came to see was very well founded because she is exceptionally knowledgeable and does this job with effortless excellence. So, feeling “taken-care-of” was immediately established and only grew stronger as the process went on. As an assistant principal I would happily offer Sue a job teaching (although she clearly has found her calling) based solely on this home buying experience. I went in knowing nothing but throughout the process Sue helped us to learn everything we needed to know. Not only would she advise and guide us through the process, but she would always check to make sure that we understood everything, including why she was offering that advice. We knew so little about the process of home-buying that we couldn’t even clearly explain what we were looking for but after a little getting to know us and a lot of searching out houses to get our opinions on, she was able to provide listings that consistently caught our interest. Then came all of her guidance through the process of which homes to put in an offer on (including guidance through that process as well of course), which to pass on, and why. All of her guidance resulted in us confidently purchasing our first home which we are exceedingly happy with! And the icing…like any good professional that also happens to be an excellent person Sue is connected to so many other good and friendly professionals who, just like Sue, are great at working with you towards your best interest (she connected us to our lender, inspector, and several other people that we will continue to do business with). One would have to be a complete fool to not work with Sue as his agent…don’t be a fool.”

"Sue Johnson represented us tremendously as we built our custom home in 2006. While the builder was very professional and responsible, Sue nonetheless monitored the progress, deadlines and milestones ensuring we received full value for our money. Our experience was so favorable that Sue has remained a personal friend, so naturally when it came time to sell our residence and downsize we contacted her to represent us.
Sue, once again, did not disappoint us. She hired a best-in-class photographer and staging professionals to showcase our home. She prepared a property book that other realtors remarked, '... it was the most comprehensive they had ever seen.'
During the negotiations, the most stressful times, Sue always made sure we understood our options and offered multiple courses of action for us to consider.
We were thoroughly satisfied with Sue’s representation and are confident the speed of our sale, the final sale amount was largely due to Sue’s dedicated attention to us. We would recommend her services to anyone."
—Bill and Calla Edinger
"...From our initial conversation to closing the deal Sue was the epitome of an articulate, skilled, seasoned, and profoundly dedicated real estate agent. As an active duty Army officer and distant landlord, her willingness to assist me in many tasks were absolutely instrumental..."
—Patrick A. Kuntz, Major (P), U.S. Army
"...I can't stop smiling and thanking God for this wonderful blessing. I also believe that you were a blessing sent to us by God, we always felt you always watched out for our best interest. I don't know if you know this but when you walked into our lives you became part of the family..."
—Gerardo & Veronica Miranda
"...We love our new home and we couldn't have everything we do without the quick and successful sale of our condo. Sue has exceeded all of our expectations and we would definitely utilize her services again. I would recommend Sue to anybody looking to buy or sell property..."
