Outstanding Representation Has a Name

There are Malibu real estate agents, and then there is Susan Monus. Susan stands for success. With over 500 homes sold locally, she is an ambassador of luxury living, opening doors every day for leaders in business, politics, sports and entertainment. As a member of the Coldwell Banker® International Luxury Alliance, Susan is able to offer her clients the highest level of service and support. This small group of approximately 70 agents work in concert locally and internationally to market their homes to the highest level of clientele.

Susan puts the best interests of her clients first and tenaciously protects them. Her reputation and relationships are just as important as any real estate transaction. A big part of her success is a business built on repeat clients and referrals. She always conducts business with uncompromising integrity, utmost discretion, and steadfast commitment. She is an innovative marketer, a savvy negotiator, and a problem solver. As a result, she is a top Malibu real estate agent, and has been one for 33 years.

In 2021, Susan earned the distinction of being Coldwell Banker Realty’s number 1 agent at the Malibu office and the number 5 agent in Greater Los Angeles. As one of Coldwell Banker Realty’s most successful realtors, Susan has been on the Top 100 list yearly (out of approximately 4,000 realtors) since 1995 for Coldwell Banker Realty agents in Southern California and is also top 1% internationally for sales. Most recently, Susan was recognized by Los Angeles Magazine as a 2023 Real Estate All-Star and by the Los Angeles Business Journal as a 2022 Leader of Influence.

Susan has consistently provided her clients with highly personalized service and individual attention. She has helped them successfully close on hundreds of Malibu beach homes and Malibu estates, whether buying or selling them. She treats her clients with respect and with the understanding that buying and selling a home is one of the most significant financial decisions they will make. Susan has sold a number of the most expensive homes in Malibu and belongs to the club of agents who capably sell homes over $20M.

Susan has the highest reputation for integrity amongst the prestigious real estate community. Her clients are local, national, and international. They demand a high level of service and Susan provides it with dedication and sophistication. She has a loyal following of people with whom she does repeat business—the real test of stellar performance. It is evident to all who know her that Susan really cares about the satisfaction of her clients.

Ask almost anyone in Malibu and they will tell you Susan is the “hardest working, most passionate” realtor in town. She is a skilled listener and communicator who works tirelessly for her clients to get them the top dollar when selling their luxury Malibu estate or when buying their Malibu dream home. Susan’s strong work ethic coupled with her seasoned experience and entrepreneurial spirit make her an incomparable partner in fulfilling your every real estate need.

Malibu is my home. Real estate is my passion.

Malibu's wild and dazzling beauty has attracted all who glimpse its treasures. Malibu has always been a place apart-arguably the most stunning 27 miles of coastline in California. Mile after mile of sand and crashing surf, secluded canyons, quaint shops, and fine restaurants. I know every beach, every bluff, every neighborhood, and every canyon. Please contact me to see which of the many properties currently available will be your next slice of paradise. Susan Monus


Susan is extraordinary! She was extremely helpful, open, transparent and reliable through the whole process. She really cared about us and understood our needs from the very first visit. We felt very fortunate to have her as our agent. Highly recommend!

Susan, It all came together- thanks to you! Thank you again for all your time, effort, professionalism and attention to detail! You are the consummate pro!
Thank you for all your hard work that enabled our 2 transactions to come to fruition. And thank you for your patience ....

September 23, 2017 Dear Susan, Carl and I want to express our appreciation and thanks for guiding us through the events of the past many months. No words can truly convey our gratitude for your continuous support, encouragement, and literal hand-holding during the process of selling the home we came to as newly-weds forty-three years ago. In addition to your dedicated professionalism in marketing the property, your knowledge, skill, and support sustained us during the roller coaster ride of what must have been one of the longest and most complicated escrow periods on record. We have praised you to our friends, and think you are the best agent anyone could ever hope for. Now that we have arrived at the other end of this process, we feel so fortunate to have had you as our guide. Our initial business relationship has evolved into friendship, and as a great bonus, we feel a special kinship for the buyers you brought to us. The warmth we feel for you is a tremendous antidote to any sadness we feel about leaving this home, and we hope that despite geographical distance, our friendship will continue in the years to come. Affectionately
Sarah & Carl Straub
"Thank you Susan Monus, Coldwell Banker realtor, for sponsoring our calendar and your seemingly limitless support to our school and community."

"Just a quick note of THANKS for making our dream come true in Malibu! No hassles, no aggravation, just a clean cut deal and the pleasure of dealing with a consummate professional."
S. Desfor
“Susan's integrity, professionalism, and reputation are second to none. She aggressively marketed and sold our El Matador house with professional photos, sophisticated presentations, and effective open houses. She has a keen eye for details, is meticulous, and a strong negotiator. Her track record of experience as both a buyer and seller’s agent helped us find the right buyer and made our sale go smoothly. Without a doubt she is the hardest working realtor in Malibu and closes the deal timely with extraordinary skill and attention to detail.”
E. Pentikis
"I had met Susan through friends and heard of her through her high profile in the community. Susan carries a pedigreed education and business background and has a clear understanding of the Malibu real estate market. I was also impressed by the exposure generated through her direct mail campaigns, website marketing, and continued presence in local newspapers."
W. Feldhorn
"We have purchased two homes from Susan over the last few years. She works with you beyond the purchasing stage. We had some building to do to finish off our home, and she stayed with us through the permit stage, and even went down and helped us expedite our permits. She was extremely helpful. She works day and night for her clients, doesn't stop when the sale is done, and knows the ins and outs of the business. She is the most experienced realtor we have ever met."
S. and D. Weiss
"Of all of the Realtors we have dealt with Susan is the most honest, hard working, and thorough, no detail was left to chance. Her diligence in selling our bluff property on Pt. Dume was greatly appreciated."
J. and C. Halpern
"Incredible follow through and attention to detail. Skillfulness. Patience. Integrity. Caring. Compassion. Hardworking. Do you ever take a day off?"
J. Brokaw
"Over the last 10 years, we have done approximately eight transactions of all types with Susan, and we have nothing but favorable things to say about her. Working with her has been a phenomenal success. She is one of the most results-driven agents we have ever dealt with. She will do whatever it takes to get the deal done. That's her objective — to make it work."
P. and S. Steele
"I have bought and sold over 10 homes in my lifetime and worked with many different Realtors. Susan is by far and away the most PROFESSIONAL, hardworking, and knowledgeable realtor I have ever encountered. She gives new meaning to the word professionalism in the real estate profession. I own my own company and appreciate meeting professionals who deserve to be at the top of their field."
C. Lejade
“Thank you does not begin to cover our appreciation of your hard work and tenacity. Without you, we would never be the owners of this dream house - the one you knew I would fall in love with!"
L. and R. Kern
“Most productive Agents are smart, creative, aggressive and detail oriented. They're long term thinkers, objective, organized and honest. Susan possesses ALL of these characteristics. . . . the best agent around (I mean that)."
C. W. Hammerstein
