Susanne Stauffer, Managing Broker, Investment Analyst, Seattle Relocation Specialist
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. Shortly, I took on the responsibility of being a Designated Broker of a prominent RE/MAX office in Ballard. It was a valuable experience in a leadership role but didn’t last long, I realized missed working directly with clients.
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 and frequently walk down the Golden Gardens stairs to the beach. If you are considering a relocation to Seattle, please please contact me – I have so much to share!
