About

If you are looking for a real estate broker with proven experience, an intuitive mind, who takes a professional no-nonsense approach to your real estate investment, please consider my experience and credentials when buying or selling your next home.

Before I pursued a career in real estate, I was in accounting and then recruiter for large multi-national companies. In both accounting and the corporate world, attention to detail is a must. My favorite part of my recruiting career was putting the pieces together, finding just the right person for a position. As I moved into real estate, I realized that was the part of the role I loved the most – solving problems for my clients and helping them move forward with their goals.

As your real estate broker, my goal is to provide you with the research and education to help you strategize and make the best real estate investment choices for you. I have sold over $50 million in property and my experience is what you need to get your home sold or to find and negotiate to buy the right property. It is my goal as your full service real estate company to provide you with superior service at all times. Most of my business comes from referrals from my clients which is a testament to how I serve buyers and sellers. Between my childhood and high-energy careers, I have moved 32 times in my life and consider myself a well-seasoned mover. I understand what you are going through. Therefore, I strive to make your real estate transaction smooth, efficient and successful.

My background has led to several international moves as well. I am familiar with a number of different cultures and customs, having lived in Germany, Great Britain, England, Wales, Spain, Dubai, and, of course, the United States, giving you a unique advantage with any relocation needs and when working with people from a number of cultures.

I differentiate myself from other agents by conducting business concurrent to the values of RE/MAX International. These values dictate that real estate brokers operate under the principles of trust and excellence, never taking their clients’ business for granted.

Not all agents are committed to ongoing education. However I am unique in that I strive to keep myself on the cutting edge of advances in real estate rules and legislation that could affect my clients’ real estate transactions. In addition to achieving the SRES, CRS, ABR, SFR, CDPE, CNE, CIAS, CIPS and E-Pro designations, as well as my position as a Public Notary, I am responsible for education and mentoring of agents within my office.

I also offer free staging and Feng Shui consulting services. I have found that these are abundantly helpful in getting homes sold.

Whether you are selling a condo or buying that waterfront home of your dreams, put my expertise and experience to work for you. 

Designations and Awards

I believe that keeping at the industry forefront is critical in making sure your transaction runs smoothly. I do that through not only continuing education, but also through higher levels of education called “designations”. Below is a list of the designations I have achieved and how they benefit you.

Designations

  • REALTOR® – not every real estate broker is a REALTOR®. REALTORS® adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and are part of the largest trade organization in the country, making sure home ownership remains a strong part of our economy.
  • Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) – For agents who want to take their buyer skills to the next level, the ABR designation provides tools and systems to help me help buyers find the right home right now.
  • Certified Residential Specialist (CRS)  – Brokers with their CRS Designation have access to cutting-edge education, results-based tools and resources, and access to a large referral network so we can find just the right agent should we need to look out-of-area. This designation is also known as the “PhD of Real Estate” with less than 4% of all agents attaining it.
  • Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) – Some of the 32 addresses I have had in my life are international. I was born in Germany and have lived abroad in the United Kingdom, the Middle East, and Spain. This is just one reason I have obtained the Certified International Property Specialist designation. This allows me to work with international buyers and sellers, opening up the world market for your next home purchase or sale.
  • Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource Certification (SFR) – The economic downturn affected many homeowners in our area. If you think you might be facing a short sale or foreclosure, you need an advocate on your side to work with you and the bank to learn your options.
  • Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE)
  • e-Pro – Since 92% of homebuyers search for homes online, it is critical that your real estate broker harnesses the power of the internet when it comes time to searching for the home of your dreams or getting your home market exposure to get it sold. My e-PRO designation has taken my tech savvy to the next level.
  • Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) – As a CNE, I have taken in-depth training on the art of negotiating, making me a stronger advocate for your needs during the transaction. My goal is to solve any problems that may be a barrier between parties in getting the transaction closed and both parties satisfied with the outcome.
  • Certified Investor Advisor Specialist (CIAS) – If you are an investor wanting to add property to your portfolio or are new to investing in real estate, my CIAS Designation will help you achieve your goals.
  • Institute of Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM) – I have received the training for my ILHM designation and this is currently pending final approval. This highly-sought after designation provides ongoing training for representing buyers and sellers of luxury properties as well as a network of like-minded brokers in the event we need a resource outside the area.

What Clients Are Saying

Sue was fantastic. Bought a house with her support and expertise without even seeing it in person. We did a FaceTime walk through and made an offer. Sue had the house painted and cleaned and updated here and there. My husband was present for the inspection. She was so helpful in so many ways.  Our settlement was delayed due to unforeseen circumstances; she communicated about this with us often and didn’t tire of our questions! She even picked up packages we’d mailed ahead and kept them in her home for us! I’d highly Sue to anyone buying or selling a home.

11/01/2018 - E. W. Book - Bought a Single Family home in 2018 in Boynton Beach, FL.

WE HAVE USED SUE FOR 4 YEARS, INITIALLY TO BUY A CONDO. NOW WE HAVE PURCHASED A HOUSE THROUGH HER AND ARE USING HER TO SELL OUR CONDO. WE TRIED MANY OTHER AGENTS IN THE AREA, BUT SINCE MEETING SUE WOULD USE NO ONE ELSE. SHE IS PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND WE WOULD RECOMMEND HER HIGHLY.

12/31/2018 - Rain Tree Mgt - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Delray Beach, FL.

I contacted Sue when a neighbor had listed their place for sale. She returned the call promptly and set up an appointment to preview our property and discuss our needs. She listened gave us her recommendations and suggestions. She told us what she thought she could do for us and it was well worth our time. She took care of everything. She had a top of the line photographer present our place on the listing. We left the area and she handled everything over the internet. Our place was sold in a matter of weeks. Everything went smoothly and we couldn’t have been happier. She will be our goto contact for the future in that area

01/03/2019 - Anonymous - Sold a Condo home in 2018 in Delray Beach, FL.

Experienced agent always kept me up to date with what was going on with market and activity on property. She listened and gave her recommendations. Her professionalism was excellent.

01/17/2019 - Danielle Engels - Sold a Apartment home in 2018 in Delray Beach, FL.

We just completed our second transaction with Sue. The service we received both times was perfect and you could not find a better or more knowledgeable agent than Sue. In addition, Sue's communication throughout the transactions went well beyond the "call of duty". You will be pleased if you  engage Sue's talents for your real estate transaction.

12/28/2018 - Carly Weg - Sold a Multi Family home in 2018 in Delray Beach, FL.
01/02/2019 - Janet Edgar - Bought a Condo home in 2018 in Boynton Beach, FL.

Susanne Leonard is one of the most professional and knowledgeable agents I have ever worked with. Most importantly Susanne was able to interpret my needs and steer me towards appropriate properties. She never pushed and demonstrated tremendous patience and empathy. Susanne's expertise in staging and obtaining awesome photographs is excellent. My previous house sold in a week and I love my new home. I closed on my previous home and my new home simultaneously. I give my heartfelt thanks for all her work and sincerity.

01/15/2019 - Laurie - Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Boynton Beach, FL.
