Complaint / review text:
Susanne Jill Petty is a rip-off real estate broker who swindled me out of $900,000.
Susanne Jill Petty claims she is an ethical broker, but this is far from the truth. I wanted to buy a home in Cold Water Canyon. Susanne Jill Petty found a home, which she said was a good deal for 900K. The house had been on the market for a while and it looked good. When I bought the house, there were problems, which Jill Petty failed to disclose. For example bad plumbing, four leaks on the roof and an electrical system, which needed replacement. I learned after investigation Susanne Jill Petty had knowledge of the condition of the house. She bragged to friends about how she was able to sell that lemon house for a good price.
In addition to the maintenance problems I learned a husband and wife had committed suicide in the house in 2009 and that fact was never disclosed to us when we made our offer. Although we never experienced moving objects or doors, which mysteriously closed, there were extreme changes in the house temperature. We continued to feel cold spots and the cold spots tended to move around. Small items including keys and cell phones would be missing for several hours and then turn up in odd places. During the early hours of the morning we heard someone walking in the attic over our head, but no one was there.
When Susanne Jill Petty was confronted with the way she handled our transaction, she believed our experience to be a funny joke.
Stay away from Susanne Jill Petty. We are taking her to court to attempt to recover our money. Weve moved out of the house and it is vacant until we can dispose of this property. Susanne Jill Petty needs to be stopped. Real estate brokers like her shouldnt be allowed to sell to the public.
