Having been raised in North Dakota you learn many life lessons. Lesson #1: You as an individual are responsible for your words and actions and the lack of them. Lesson #2: Always prepare, otherwise you are preparing to fail, especially if you forget to wear your thermal underwear in the winter in North Dakota.
Susan has a deep level of experience and specialization in "New Home Construction". New construction has been her focus since the start of her Real Estate Career. She assists the buyers along with the builders during the entire process from the planning, financial, construction, closing and move into their new home. Her level of knowledge and service is evident, as a member of the Kansas City HBA 2020 and 2022 Artisan Tour Committee.
In addition, Susan facilitates with buyers and sellers in listing their existing homes to sell. Selling a home is a competition. It is a process she strives to make a "Win-Win" situation for all parties. Assisting the seller getting their home "Market Ready" is only one of her many strong attributes. She is an expert adviser on pricing the home correctly, staging, organization, photographs, marketing, and getting the exposure needed to sell quickly. I enjoy working with "Buyers and Seller's" at any point in their lives. Whether it is "first time home buyers or fifth time home buyers" every transaction is different. I try to surround myself and work with professionals that have high levels of integrity, that are also hardworking, and highly motivated. Together with these individuals we make the transaction and the process of buying and or selling a home as smooth as possible. I strive to exceed my client's expectations and give them confidence in my ability to perform my fiduciary responsibilities. By doing so, my clients have "Peace of Mind" in what could be a stressful situation.
Susan lives by the "Golden Rule" and that is to always strive do the right thing.

Owning a home in USA was a dream of mine. I came from an average household and my father worked very hard to make ends meet to give us a better future. My dad left the family to come to the United States for a more hopeful future and then we arrived 10 years later. So seeing my mom struggle raising 5 kids gave me even more motivation to excel and do more!
I graduated from Missouri State University with Bachelors of Science in Human Resources and minor in Business Administration. Upon graduation I took on a role of managing a retail department store where I excelled and was able to get many aggressive promotions with most recent a leading Account Executive for a global cosmetics company. Managing and leading teams over the past 18 years has taught me to an expert in building long lasting relationships with my teams and most importantly with clients. My experiences has provided me with valuable skills that I can use daily to negotiate, and educate my buyers and seller to get the most ROI.
I understand what it takes to stand in client's shoes. As a young woman, I purchased my first home at the age of 23 and I have been blessed to have sold and purchase multiple times over the past 12 years.
My career is built on honesty and integrity, along with communication, dedication, and transparency. This recipe has helped me build credibility and trust within the community.
