Welcome to Paradise!
Formerly from New Jersey, I have been a Sarasota County resident since 1998. I offer my clients 25+ years of real estate expertise with a high level of integrity, strong market vision and a wealth of local knowledge. As a Certified New Home Specialist, my prior experience in new home sales and marketing have provided me with a strong foundation in customer service and attention to detail, all with an enthusiastic, professional approach.
I reside in the heart of Sarasota County with my husband, our two cats and dog. When I am not busy serving the needs of my clients, I enjoy cooking, entertaining friends and family, and enjoying the incomparably beautiful Sarasota beaches as well as the myriad of other amenities life in Sarasota offers.
As an animal lover, I believe strongly in giving back; therefore, I donate a portion of each commission to either a local animal rescue or the charity of your choice. After your transaction closes, just let me know which organization you would like me to support on your behalf.
When you are ready to find your next home — whether an existing home or new construction — you need someone who will represent your best interests and look out for the details that are important to you. This is particularly true with new developments where the on site salespeople represent the interests of the developer.
When it comes time to sell, know your options and make better decisions. Please contact me today for a complimentary pricing evaluation and market review. My knowledge of the local area and competition will assist in getting more for your home in a timely manner. Let me work for you.

” I am delighted to offer my thorough recommendation of the real estate services offered by Susan. We first worked with Susan while buying a condominium several years ago. Susan was extremely helpful in finding us the unit most suited to our needs, in the handling of the negotiation with the developer, and particularly in making it easy for us to finalize all the details of the purchase, and to move into our new home. This was particularly valuable to us being UK residents, and therefore remote from much of the ‘hands on’ work which needed to be done. In spite of the distance involved, communication, whether by phone or e-mail, was always first class, prompt and clear.Having decided to look for a suitable property with a little more space, Susan was very proactive in helping us search through the hundreds of available properties to find one meeting our needs at the right price level. Again, the negotiation, purchase, and eventual move were all made easy by Susan’s work and commitment, so we hardly felt our vacations were disturbed at all by the move. Susan was always willing to go that ‘little bit further’ to help us.
Susan also took control of the sale of our original condo, in what was a very difficult market. Again, communication was key as she advised us on pricing strategy, thoroughly researching the market to keep us in touch with other similar properties being marketed, and working diligently through advertising, open houses, and communication with potential buyers, eventually securing us a sale at a very acceptable price. She ensured that we were not unnecessarily troubled either while on vacation in Venice, or at home in the UK, even going that extra mile to personally remove and store some of our possessions at her own home.
During our transactions together, Susan has shown diligence and attention to detail, and we certainly put great trust in her abilities and reliability. I can certainly recommend her excellent services to any potential real estate client – she will do a great job on your behalf. ”
