She is always on the hunt for new local restaurants or food trucks, and can often be found cheering on the Warriors, SF Giants, and Buffalo Bills with her husband and friends.

Sue Bowers did an amazing job scheduling a "self-guided" apartment tour for us! We are relocating from the east coast, and knew very little about San Francisco neighborhoods. We signed a lease on an awesome 2 bedroom apartment that met all our requirements. Sue went above and beyond to get many apartment viewings scheduled for us in a short amount of time, I can't imagine how we would have found this apartment on our own. Thank you!

I got a job in SF that required I move (almost) overnight. Sue Bowers bent over backwards to help accommodate my insane schedule and get me into the PERFECT little apartment in Hayes Valley (BEFORE my first day of work). My experience with ReLISTO was awesome! Thank you Sue!!!!

I recently was sent from D.C. to San Francisco for a temporary work assignment lasting 4 months. Coming from a city that also has a lot of charm outside of the areas perpetually flooded with tourists, I knew I wanted to stay in an area where I could really experience the life of a local San Franciscan. Based on that, I certainly wasn't interested in spending 4 months in a hotel, so I was then challenged with finding a short-term furnished rental.

I looked into some of the search engine recommended corporate housing companies, but the after the furnishing fees, cleaning fees and exorbitant monthly costs of rent I wasn't able to afford anything they had to offer within the city. Then I tried airbnb, but couldn't find one property that was available for the entire duration of my stay, and I wasn't interested in moving multiple times, even though all I had with me was two suitcases. My search through craigslist didn't last long either, as most of the responses I got seemed like total scams.

Finally, I came across ReLISTO! There were many properties available, furnished and unfurnished, around the Bay Area within my budget. I was only looking for properties in SF, but they have properties outside of SF, as well. I emailed with interest in one of the furnished properties, and one of the agents, Sue Bowers, promptly responded and offered to show me the property and answer any of my questions. I met with her that evening at the said property, which was in an amazing location in Haight Ashbury on a lovely street just a block from all the excitement of Haight Street. Sue was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and shared helpful information about living in SF.

I didn't want to commit to the first property I saw, so I gave myself another day or two to see what else was available before settling. Within that time I still couldn't find anything elsewhere, and came back to ReLISTO with interest in another property, this time in Lower Haight. Sue was very helpful again providing information about the property and the neighborhood. I quickly knew that this was the place I wanted to rent during my time in SF.

Sue worked with me to accommodate my payments using a company credit card, since I was travelling on assignment and couldn't pay by check. The ReLISTO office is in a convenient location on Hayes right off of Divisadero where I could easily walk to make payments, but the ReLISTO team then established an online payment system so that I no longer had to go to the office to make a payment, which was even more convenient.

All in all, my experience with ReLISTO and working with Sue was definitely a great one. I'm so thankful to have found them. I have recommended their services to several friends in SF, and shared their info at my office for future travelers on assignment in the Bay Area. I am planning to relocate permanently to SF in the Fall, and I'm looking forward to working with ReLISTO again.

I've been working primarily with Sue for over three years and she has been amazing. Professional, prompt, honest and works to ensure that contracts are made in both mine and the tenant's best interests. Sue would also go the extra mile to recommend things I wouldn't have thought about when the circumstance called for it. I can't say how much I've appreciated her flexibility and understanding throughout our time working together.

Moved from out of town into one of their properties sight unseen. The property was exactly as described, the arrival on a Sunday was arranged with no issues. Very pleased with the professionalism, quality of listings, and prompt service when we needed it. Our situation changed shortly after we moved in and Sue, our agent, was understanding and helped with the transition. I would work with Sue Bowers and ReLISTO again and would recommend them to others.
