I am an energetic full time realtor at Baird & Warner in Naperville.  All people are unique and I think it's important to listen to my client's specific real estate needs and to fulfill and exceed their expectations.  I take pride in being dedicated and very accessible to my clients days, evenings and weekends.  When I list a home I always ask my seller  "what do you love about your home?"  The answer often inspires me to write original descriptions of the home and come up with unique ways of marketing on the internet and to specific individuals.  I stage my listings, use only professional photography with upgraded images ,virtual tours and glossy high end brochures.  When I take my time and do everything carefully and well thought out right out  of the gate, that is when the magic happens.  I also try to create a lot of excitement and pizazze around my listings before they go onto the MLS. For this reason I believe many of my listings are sold before I even get a chance to fully market them!  All of these ingredients are necessary for optimal results for my most valued sellers.  For my buyers you become my priority until your dream home is found.  Patience is a virtue that I have and an attribute that my buyers really appreciate.

I am a graduate from Florida State University where I majored in hospitality management with an emphasis on marketing. My strong sales and marketing background, hard working habits, coupled with my artistic sense of style gives me the competitive edge my clients require in this marketplace.  I can take the pressure off of  you when your home goes on the market by doing more than you expect to bring real prospective buyers to you. 

As a Naperville resident, my two wonderful daughters and I take advantage of everything this gorgeous suburb has to offer.   That includes long walks on the river walk with our dog Dusty, dining in fabulous restaurants, shopping in unique boutiques, not to mention the amazing extracurricular activities and top notch school districts.  As a hobby, I keep my piano skills up to speed by teaching  a few neighborhood kids piano and I love doing Bikram yoga!

"Susan is one of the most consummate professional I have worked with. She's has a fantastic network of services providers who helped us with painting, flooring etc as well as staging our house. She provided us with very personal help, feedback, advise all through the process.
The house was under contract almost within first 10 days of listing. Till the very last day, she personally rushed to our help if there were any issues with inspection etc.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with her. She's very patient and a hands on professional.

"Yes....yes.....yes!!!!! Susan is the right agent to choose! We recently listed our home with Susan. As first time sellers, we really benefited from her knowledge. She came in, gave an honest opinion, and suggested we stage a little. At no cost to us! I never would have believed in that but she brought someone in, we moved a few things around, added a only a few things and we had a showplace, many showings, and a quick sale! Susan is energetic, enthusiastic, and easy to work with. She gets results. Thank you Susan for your help. It was a pleasure."
