Sue and her team did an excellent job helping me with the refinance of my home. They provided excellent information and a fast, coordinated, and painless process. A couple of year ago, she did an excellent job helping me buy my first home. She was very patient answering my questions and explaining my options, as well as all the necessary details. I will definitely keep working with Sue and her team in the future.

When my wife and I were ready to start looking seriously into buying a house in the Santa Cruz area, Mrs. Baker-Dirickson and our agent worked very diligently to get us a pre-approval letter and eventually a loan. We really appreciated her commitment to us and getting our documents collected and processed efficiently and effectively. She also answered many of our 'first time homebuyer' questions along the way. We would strongly recommend working with her and her team at Princeton Capital when looking to finance the purchase of your next home.

First time home owner
Sue, was recommended to me by a college buddy of mine. So she came well placed to make my loan process go smooth. As both Sue and I were very proactive, we got all the paperwork ready for several offers where we had a potential chance to win. We engaged close to a year as we were very particular about our home location and needs. Finally when we decided on a home and got accepted, Sue was very efficient in ensuring things got completed on time and as per our initial discussions, I would truly recommend Sue based on my year long interactions with her. She will be a great advisor and will help your homebuying process.

Sue did a great job right from day one from the pre-approval stage and helped us in gauging our budget and financial strength to buy a property. She helped us understand the process of applying & securing an loan approval all the way through. She helped us through each stage very efficiently and directed us to do the right things financially which helped us eventually manage our funds correctly. I would recommend Sue to anyone I come across who is looking for an great banker to work with. Thanks to Sue for helping us secure the loan approval in a timely manner after the close of escrow. The deadlines were very aggressive in our case and Sue worked hard and provided us excellent support in securing the loan approval. It was nice to work with Sue and I look forward in working with Sue in the future.

Sue is a phenomenal mortgage professional. She goes out of her way to ensure transaction is completed in time with no surprises/hickups on the way. I had too many factors unique to my loan application (like limited history, low down payment etc) but with Sue by our side, I felt super confident in the process and she made sure that transaction closed very smoothly.
I'll recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

My husband and I started with another company/lender looking to refinance our home. That lender declined to research a loan we had requested. We then turned to Sue and she researched the loan without hesitation. She and her team helped us through every step of the process and answered all our questions. It was a seamless and painless process. I have recommend Sue to others already. She and her team are remarkable and I will not hesitate to use them again in the future.

Being first-time home buyers is an overwhelming process, and to add to that the current seller's market in bay-area makes it even more difficult. You have to have a good team around you to make it happen. When we started the home-buying process, we went to big banks since we have always worked with them. However, the didn't have many loan products that fit our needs and they were not following up quickly on our requests. When we lost a house because of the lender, our agent asked to get a second opinion and thats how we met Sue.

She sat with us and explained how the process works and provided many loan options. Within a day she had our pre-approval ready. After that most of the communication happened over the email. She made the whole loan approval very easy on us.

When we finally found a house, she was instrumental in closing the deal. She convinced the agent to not add loan-approval contingency, and she was continuously monitoring the progress of the transaction. When the loan closing process was taking more than expected and the sellers were getting impatient, she was keeping both us and sellers informed everyday. She played is very crucial role in us getting the house.

We highly recommend Sue, and we couldn't be more happy with her. She is experienced, knowledgeable, and she get's it done.

Sue was knowledgeable, responsive, efficient, and helpful throughout the loan process. She is also quite friendly and personable, and is overall a pleasure to work with.

I highly recommend Sue if you need a home loan! I was a first-time home buyer, and Sue helped me with my loan from start to finish. She always made time to meet with me, to answer all of my questions and go through all of my documents. Most importantly, Sue is incredibly experienced, knowledgeable and competent. This was very reassuring to me as a first-time buyer. It can be a crazy and confusing process to buy a home, but I knew I didn't have to worry about my loan because it was in such great hands with Sue. You'll be doing yourself a service to work with Sue!

As a first time home buyer, the process is daunting and seems overwhelming. New terms, new conditions, a myriad of parties to work with (and through) to get things done - it's all a lot to grasp. This is why I'm so grateful that I was able to partner with Sue during my home buying process. She made herself available quite a bit over the course of the process, and no question was too insignificant (or foolish) to answer. She kept me apprised of each event throughout the entire process, and worked tirelessly to ensure not just one but two loans during a very aggressive closing timeline. I really can't recommend her enough, she fought so hard for me and managed to make the process bearable.
