Hi, I'm Susan.
Ever since I was a little girl, I had two passions : journalism and real estate. But my love for the written word won out and I started my career at the Province Newspaper before moving onto TV news and ending up at the CBC.
However, after many years of helping friends find their dream homes or doling out suggestions for renovating vs moving , I decided it was time to pursue my unrequited love and finally make a career out of my hobby. I haven’t regretted that decision for one second.
I work hard for my clients. Enthusiasm, energy, experience and ethics are what I bring to assisting my clients in persuit of their real estate goals.
M y husband and I recently bought waterfront property in Sandy Hook and are in the process of building our dream home. In what spare time we have, you can find us hiking in the beautiful Hidden Grove with our dog Andy or strolling along Davis Bay waterfront enjoying the splendour of the natural beauty of the Sunshine Coast.
Marketing your property.
I advertise in all Sunshine Coast Real Estate magazines as well as in the North Shore News to try to capture the interest of off-coast buyers also.
I list on several platforms beside MLS including REW.ca , Realtylink.org, my own website, my Facebook page, Twitter , Instagram and LinkedIn.
I do a mailout to targeted neighbourhoods when a property is listed so people in the area are aware and can let possible interested parties know about the new house for sale in their neighbourhood. I will also door knock and invite the neighbours to the Open Houses to help get the word out.
If the seller approves, I will hold Open Houses every weekend, and will be available for all private showings.

I am passionate about Real Estate and helping my clients reach their real estate dreams. My many years working in the fast-paced TV News industry gave me skills that lend themselves perfectly to the Real Estate Industy.
We have been exploring different avenues (LinkedIn of real estate agents etc) and we need somebody to lead the research as well as the implementation.
We are looking for a UBC student (any faculty) who could lead the research, design and launch of Castle's new product. Currently, we generate passive revenue off website subscriptions. Ideally, we want to transform Castle into a proper startup by building a scalable product.
