About Susanne Stauffer, Real Estate Agent, Seattle

My quest as an advisor is to understand the big ‘Why’ behind my client’s real estate needs. Whether we are discussing a home purchase, an addition to an investment portfolio or the sale of a property, knowing the client’s lifestyle, as well as future plans is key to seizing the best market opportunities.

Years of experience in the business have crafted me into an effective negotiator and brought invaluable connections and relationships with other agents. Client privacy is respected and personal and financial information are always treated with discretion.


I became a licensed real estate broker in 2003 following a career in sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies. With some experience and further education, I became the Designated Broker of a prominent RE/MAX office in Ballard. It was a valuable experience in a leadership role and also made me realize that I missed working directly with clients. I left that position after couple years and have been building my independent, mostly referral based business since.

After 14 years with RE/MAX International it was time for a change. Together with several dear friends I formed Reside. Real Estate Group with Keller Williams. All of us at Reside are committed to supporting each other and sharing our strategies and successes. My clients know they are not just getting my time and expertise but also a whole team of top agents with similar ethics and motivation to do things right.

Passion for Puget Sound Living

I attribute my love of salty air to having been born in Helsinki, Finland by the Baltic Sea. Age nine, I moved to sunny Los Gatos, California and eventually made my way to the midwest for studies at Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI.

My 1999 move to Seattle felt like returning home. I cherish the Northwest beaches, evergreen forests and snowy mountaintops and feel so lucky to live in this magical place. I inhabit a 1926 Bungalow in Ballard with my partner Cory, a perfectionist finish carpenter and our 1st grader twin kiddos.
