Suzanne grew up in Santa Barbara and attended local schools, including Santa Barbara High and UCSB. She spent her junior year abroad in Rome studying art and architecture, which to this day fuels her appreciation for the Mediterranean -influenced homes in Santa Barbara. After receiving her Masters in Management and Marketing from the American Graduate School of International Management in Arizona, she worked in advertising for the shipping company, Tiger International. After house hunting for a year (and loving it!), she decided to get her real estate license and then sold condominium conversions for Daon Corporation and the Irvine Company. She also was a sales associate for new home developments in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Suzanne returned to Santa Barbara and concentrated in residential homes sales in Montecito and Santa Barbara. Suzanne fell in love with the Santa Ynez Valley after selling homes in Solvang to family members, and so moved there herself. She prides herself in finding just the right property for her buyers and strives to make each transaction run as smoothly and stress-free as possible. She uses her business expertise to find the ideal blend of marketing to obtain the highest price at the best terms for her sellers.
Suzanne thoroughly enjoys living in Santa Barbara County and participating in all the recreational and cultural activities it has to offer, particularly horseback riding, hiking, and culinary adventures. She supports her community by volunteering for or participating in events sponsored by the Teddy Bear Cancer Society, the Santa Ynez Historical Society, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Girl's Inc. and People Helping People.
