After twenty-two years spent climbing the corporate ladder in the telecommunications industry, Susan bravely decided to make a change in her professional life and pursue a career she had long found intriguing…real estate! Although the odds were stacked against her, she made the plunge in 2003 and has never looked back. Since joining the Southlake office of Prudential Texas Properties in 2004, she has earned the Prudential Chairmans Gold Circle Award, the Leading Edge Society Award and has achieved the Prudential Silver Club Award.

Susan has a track record of consistently exceeding her clients’ expectations—something she credits with her ability to be patient and understanding of their needs. But her love of real estate extends beyond selling a home….she thrives on establishing a long-term relationship with her clients, and if the client is new to the area, introducing them to like-minded individuals and helping them get established in their new community.

Born in Wichita, Kansas, Susan is the youngest of six children. At the age of 10, her family relocated to Irving and she has been a proud Texas resident ever since. She made Grapevine her home in 1980 and now resides in Southlake with her husband, Tim, and their Border Collie rescue, Baxter.

Besides her love of real estate, Susan embraces any opportunity to help meet the growing needs of her community through her volunteerism.
