Susanne spent her first 16 years in different African countries, accompanying her father who was a field doctor with the World Health Organization. She graduated high school in Spain and earned her French and Spanish degrees at the Sorbonne in Paris on an exchange program with Tulane University, New Orleans. She is fluent in English, German and French, and conversational in Spanish.
After a successful 20-year corporate career in Europe, she decided to move to California where she would own and manage her own boutique retail businesses for seven years. She learned to love real estate when she met and later married her late husband, who was a successful agent in Idyllwild, California. She passed her license and served friends and family while operating her retail businesses but returned to the corporate fold when asked to become the Director of Operations for a family-owned manufacturing company in Orange County.
In 2015, after nine years in the manufacturing industry, Susanne decided to turn a part-time real estate passion into a fulltime career and quickly became a successful and consistently top producing agent in her market.
As a passionate golfer, Susanne is well connected in the golf community. She enjoys playing many of the area’s golf courses and is well versed in the residential communities that surround them. Her love of the game prompted her to earn the coveted Golf Real Estate Certification to better serve her golfing clients.
Past clients will say that Susanne is a knowledgeable, empathetic, and versatile problem solver with a willingness to go above and beyond what is expected of a real estate agent. A lifelong learner, she has completed numerous real estate certification programs and offers a wealth of resources to better serve her clients.
Her international and corporate backgrounds have equipped her with strong communications and negotiating skills and made her an expert within the relocation market. Her areas of specialization include residential homes, vacant land, second home and golf properties, probate and trust estates, investment property sales and commercial business analysis.
When she is not working hard for her clients, Susanne loves to spend time volunteering for her favorite charities, doing yoga or playing golf.
