I first met Suzanne when she sold me my home on Lake Talquin four years ago. Suzanne specializes in water front properties, lives on Lake Talquin and knows the area well. She got me a beautiful lake-front home at a great price. More than just lining up the sale, Suzanne helps with financing and will line up all the necessary repairs. Three years after I purchased the house Suzanne is still helping me find repair people for routine maintenance and takes an ongoing interest in the property.

I was so impressed with Suzanne’s professionalism and comfortable business manner that I worked with her to buy two more (rental/investment) houses in Tallahassee.

Whether you are a first time home buyer or an experienced investor you will find that Suzanne is competent, friendly, available to help you and works in your best interest.

Dear Suzanne, We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you on the purchase of our Lake Talquin property. You were a pleasure to deal with and we appreciated your knowledge of the Lake Talquin area. We are enjoying our lake property and want to tell you that as beautiful as the lake sunsets and sunrises are, our favorite is waking in the middle of the night with the moon reflecting off the water and filling the cottage with light……We look forward to many happy years fishing and boating in this paradise! Thank you for everything!

Bob and Sandy

We have purchased and sold Lake Talquin properties with the help of Suzanne Mcghee at Mattox Realty. Both experiences were handled in a most professional and friendly manner. Suzanne knows Lake Talquin and specializes in this wonderful lake community.

We highly recommend Suzanne to others. If you are considering Lake Talquin or any other community, you can count on Suzanne to provide the best possible service to you and your family.

Dear Suzanne,

I cannot express to you fully enough our appreciation for the outstanding job you did in helping us to find and buy our Tallahassee home. Your patience, knowledge, and boundless energy resulted in our finding precisely the home we had hoped for. Your knowledge of and assistance with financing options was invaluable as well.

One thing of which even you may not recognize the importance was your absolutely delightful nature. As you may recall, we were both quite nervous about leaving our old home and starting over again, and I fear that at times we were a little difficult. Your calm and cheerful demeanor made it an absolute joy to be around you, and helped overcome many a would-be obstacle.

We thank you for everything.



Suzanne McGhee was an absolute delight to work with! As young, first time home buyers she continually made us feel comfortable and excited about the whole process. The present economic situation made it very concerning to buy a house at this time however, Suzanne navigated us through it with great ease and expertise.

We have stumbled upon a gem! Lake Yvette is a little piece of paradise! Just minutes from I-10, it allows quick access to go east or west but at the same time offers serenity and peace in your backyard! We have bought our first home in Lake Yvette and cannot foresee ever leaving!

Since Suzanne lives in the area she is able to provide up-to-date information and is an expert on the homes available on the lake. She was always available to show us homes, which was important to us since we were living in 2 separate parts of the state during our transition of buying and selling. We looked at many houses over a 5 month period and we were undecided on a lakefront home or one with acreage on the outskirts of town. Her positive attitude, patience and ability to keep us focused during a difficult time was a blessing. She got to know us and knew what home was perfect for us before we even figured it out. She kept telling us how great it was on Lake Talquin.

Well, we absolutely LOVE IT! We chose a remote area on the south side of the lake in a cove off the main lake. We wanted the quiet area that Lake Talquin State Forest had to offer on a large wooded lot. The house is situated so the main level looks into the tree tops and lake. We enjoy watching the deer, wild turkey, hawks, osprey, hummingbirds, owls, eagles and many different water birds, turtles warming in the sun… We also enjoy the beautiful sunsets as we come in from fishing. The bream have been great to eat and the bass are exciting to catch. (You can see my big catch in the intro)

Thank you Suzanne for finding us heaven on earth!

We had been considering a house at Lake Talquin for several years to be used primarily as a weekend retreat and to accommodate family gatherings. We met with Suzanne to visit some of her listings and became impressed by her willingness to listen as we tried to express what we were looking for even when we didn’t really know. She continued to work with us for almost 2 years. She willingly continued to show us houses on our timetable until the right one came on the market. The day our future lake house was listed she immediately recognized that it was perfect for us, and contacted us that evening while we were eating dinner, we met her at the house and made an offer that night. She was available throughout the closing process to facilitate inspections, help clarify terms, and anything else that was needed relating to the transaction. Working with Suzanne in finding and purchasing our lake house was a pleasure. Suzanne is an excellent realtor and more importantly a caring person and new friend.

Helen and Stan

We bought our current home on the Chipola River in January 2006 and became Florida residents in late 2007. As we traveled to Tallahassee for FSU football games and other errands, we soon realized that we would like to buy or build a house on Lake Talquin.

Even though we did not expect to buy on Lake Talquin for several years, Suzanne McGhee was willing to show us various properties, learning our preferences as we shopped. Taking advantage of the depressed market this past January, Suzanne found a property that we could purchase before we sold our house in Atlanta. The property was exactly what we wanted, with an elevated view of the lake.

Not only does Suzanne give caring and professional services as a real estate agent, she also acts as a friend in recommending other professionals and services needed by her clients, right down to doctors.

Thank you, Suzanne, for your caring expertise as a realtor and your friendship.


Dear Suzanne: You drove with us all over town to view many different houses, and turned what for many people is a stressful experience into a pleasant experience. Even after driving to so many different properties for months to show us a plethora of homes, when we told you we were going to wait another year to buy a house, rather than act disappointed, you understood, and that meant a lot.

Several weeks after telling you that, you showed up to a property we were bursting with excitement about within only a few hours on no notice on a weekend right in the middle of your attending a get together. That day you worked out a deal so that we would be the first in line to make sure our offer would be accepted before any competing offers could enter the picture. If this doesn’t show due diligence, I don’t know what does.

Our family has purchased both an average priced home and a moderately expensive home from you, and in both cases, regardless of the list price, we received the same level of dedication we would have received had we been buying or selling a million dollar house. Whether we choose to buy or sell a higher priced or lower priced property in the future, I have confidence that we will be treated with graceful respect and diligence in every circumstance.

We look forward to working with you again in the future.

My husband and I recently bought a home in Havana, Florida. Buying a home is not a new experience for us since we have purchased several in our years together.

However, I must say that purchasing a home in the current housing market was a new experience for us. Not only is the market flooded with all types of homes, but also the condition of homes is not always what it appears to be on the internet.

Suzanne McGhee, our realtor, worked with us for eight months to find a home that we would like. Suzanne is a good listener and is able to develop a sense of what the buyer really likes. Suzanne began to realize the kind of home that I was interested in just by spending time with me inside the homes we visited and by eliminating houses in our search that she felt would not work for me. Even though we looked at many homes, Suzanne was able to cut out a lot of work for us by being perceptive.

Suzanne is very knowledgeable of the area because she has lived here her whole life. That is most helpful in choosing an area where you want to live and also understanding the limitations and advantages of the local communities.

It was a pleasure to work with Suzanne. Also from the business perspective, Suzanne understands real estate and the responsibilities of both the buyer and the seller and she is able to communicate that effectively so that parties understand what their obligations are in the real estate process.

I know that we found our home because of Suzanne’s diligence and attention to detail on finding a home for us. I am not sure that someone else would have been as helpful and persistent as Suzanne. For that we are grateful!
