Every aspect of real estate excites Susanne, but there is nothing better than the transformation of a house into someone’s home.
Susanne started her successful real estate career almost 2 decades ago in New York and New Jersey with a preeminent exclusive sales and marketing agency as a director of marketing. While working for developers of spectacular new construction condominium, townhome and rental projects, she provided product development and marketing services for close to 7,500 residential units. She also managed 17 sales and leasing agent teams consisting of 54 agents and assistants. Susanne’s projects achieved a total sell out of over $1,455,000,000 and the lease up of almost $27,000,000 in annual rent rolls, all while navigating the largest housing economic downturn in recent history. In recognition, Susanne was awarded the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Marketing Director of the Year award in 2008 for both her region and the nation.
Born and raised in California, with time in Utah for university, Susanne has spent the last 20 years enjoying the Flathead Valley with her friends and family. Since making Montana her permanent home, she has focused on involvement within her community and with the three hospitality related businesses she and her husband own and manage. As a small business owner, she is uniquely positioned to understand the complexities of owning and operating a business in these complicated times. Susanne is also a real estate investor, knowing first-hand what matters to clients desiring a rewarding portfolio. And as a member of the Architectural Review Committee for the City of Kalispell, she strives to ensure a well-considered future for her historic town as it experiences considerable growth and promising new changes.
Susanne loves all that Montana has to offer - you can find her cruising the ski slopes during the winter and enjoying quintessential lake life in the summer. Her passion for architecture, historic homes and buildings is fulfilled with the abundance Montana’s towns contain and she is an ardent supporter of the craftsmanship of the past and keeping that history alive for future generations. Susanne and her husband David are raising their 4 young children in historic downtown Kalispell, where David is principal/owner of Glacier Investment Management (RIA), an independent financial and investment advisory firm servicing clients both locally and internationally.
