About Suzanne

Giving My Best in All That I Do

about suzanne 1Service – this is more than a word to me, it is a pledge to those who put their trust in me. I have spent my life serving others. I believe in doing right by others and giving my best in all aspects of life – not just my Real Estate Business. I will do my best for you with honesty, caring and with integrity!

 

I hope you find the resources available on my website useful, but remember that these will never replace the time I spend serving as your personal guide through the home buying or selling process. I use my professional marketing background to provide top quality service to my clients selling their homes and as an Accredited Buyer Representative, I serve my Buyers offering the highest level of market knowledge and understanding of the home buying process. I also surround myself with wonderful professionals – lenders, attorneys, stagers, and contractors with many areas of expertise to assist my clients. 

 

Most important to me, however, is the personal care I give to each of my clients, many of whom are now friends! My motto says it all: “What matters to you…matters to Suzanne!”

 

I proudly strive to live up to what has been written about me –

“Suzanne is a vibrant person who is an active member of the local Williamsburg Area Association of Realtors® where she has volunteered on Committees and Advisory Panels, chairing a number of them, and has served over eleven years on the Multiple listing Service Board of Directors, three times as President and, during each presidency, as a Director on the Williamsburg Area Association of Realtors® Board of Directors, as well having served on the Board of the Commonwealth MLS Cooperative. Suzanne’s dedication to her profession and to her clients shows in her professionalism and has won her a number of prestigious awards both from the Williamsburg Area Association of Realtors® and her firms. Her clients consistently praise her for going “above and beyond” in serving them. Let Suzanne put her dedication and energy to work for you!”

ABOUT ME

Family has always been most important to me. I was married to my wonderful husband, Greg, for 38 years before he passed, and am mother to three amazing women. My oldest daughter is an Attorney, my daughter-in-law is a Nurse Practitioner and my youngest is in charge of the Web Design and Management at a local University. Most exciting for me now is that am a grandmother to two spectacular children. There’s nothing better than being a Mémère! (My French-Canadian heritage shows through in my grandmotherly nickname!)


My formal degree is in Elementary Education. However, my knowledge has come from the many varied experiences I have had throughout my life. Born in Massachusetts, I was raised in a Navy family and lived in many places including Taiwan. In addition to briefly teaching, I have worked in a variety of jobs from retail, to making Converse sneakers (yes, I actually made Chuck Taylor All Stars!), as a short order cook to corporate procedures analyst. In the medical arena I had different positions over the years for physicians, insurers and health care companies in various positions from customer care up to Senior Management, as a Marketing consultant designing benefit plans for universities and hospitals. Before moving to Williamsburg in 2005, I was a consultant and Marketing Director for a defense consulting firm. 

I enjoy singing int my church choir, and serving my clients and my community. I can best be described as a “hands-on” person.  I used to doing all of own plumbing, painting, household and car repairs (before cars became rolling computers!). Unfortunately, working seven days a week has curtailed a lot of that. My artistic side was most evident when I used to design and make stained glass items and windows, as well as my own silver jewelry. (Not many women would be happy to get an acetylene torch from their husband for their birthday… but I was!)  I also used to sew and smock clothes for my girls..most recently I just sewed my Covid masks…Now, with less time and no studio, I focus primarily on photography and occasionally grab a brush and paint watercolors. I hope you have enjoyed my photos here on my website.. Finally, I have always LOVED to cook and enjoy entertaining and feeding friends and family. 

I trust this gives you an idea of who will be serving your Real Estate needs and I promise to give you the care and attention you deserve.
