Born in Concord and raised in Bedford, Suzanne is a lifelong resident of the area. Inspired by her realtor grandfather, she began showing an interest in real estate at a very young age. Instead of playing house or teacher, she collected one of her father’s discarded briefcases as well as an obsolete "pink rotary telephone" from the 1970’s and would pretend to operate her own real estate business! The dog days of summer were largely consumed with riding her bicycle to nearby open houses and pouring over the local real estate ad books that she would collect during the family’s summer outings.
Her grandfather, Augie Schmuhl, founded and owned a real estate brokerage in NJ decades earlier, but sold it when Suzanne was just a child. So, while Suzanne did not truly grow up "in the business" per se, real estate definitely seems to be coded into her DNA and she is very is proud to be following in the footsteps of her late grandfather.
While attending UMass Amherst and finishing up her degree in management, Suzanne obtained her real estate license. In doing so, she revived that same spark that had inspired her grandfather decades earlier. Suzanne began working with buyers and sellers while she was still a student, and upon graduating landed her first sales job with the internet startup Zip Realty. Suzanne spent two years with Zip Realty, earning the Rookie of the Year award from the local real estate board and was professionally recognized as a top agent at the company. Always having an eye for opportunity, Suzanne left Zip Realty to join Keller Williams, an expanding company that encouraged business building and ownership. Of course, this greatly appealed to Suzanne’s entrepreneurial spirit. She has spent the last 16 years with KW building one of the most successful and sought-after real estate teams in the Great Boston/Cambridge area - focusing on the northwest suburbs.
In addition to that Rookie of the Year award, Suzanne has gone on to be the 2014 Bedford Business Person of the Year! She is also sitting high in the rankings as one of the Top 1% of agents in MA. As a listing agent, she is #1 in Bedford and has been since 2013. She has built a team of highly successful Buyer Agents, who are also claiming the top spots.
More importantly to her and her team, Suzanne is a well-known advocate of the community, frequently supporting the local schools and charities, and sponsoring numerous community building events. She is also a notorious networker, constantly connecting people and resources and frequently initializing local social media groups aimed at bringing together people in the community who might not otherwise have connected. So much in life is about connecting the dots and that is one of Suzanne's passions!
She is, of course, also deeply involved in the real estate industry, serving on both state (MAR) and local (Greater Boston) real estate boards and this year is also on the Political Action Committee for Greater Boston. Furthermore, she was invited to be a part of Provisors, which is an exclusive networking group, thus furthering her connections!
She lives in Bedford, MA with her husband and 2 children, June and Wes, plus their beloved German Shorthaired Pointer, Josie Mittens. They currently own an old farmhouse with a couple of even older looking barns that they are slowly and lovingly working towards restoring. Suzanne and Ryan have been investing in real estate since they left UMass. These include a few bank owned investments, a "flip" house in Littleton, and of course the 1848 Greek Revival located at 90 Great Road in Bedford, which has been a labor of love for over 15 years and now prominently serves as the headquarters for Team Suzanne and Co.
Suzanne and Ryan enjoy renovating houses, traveling (Montana is a new favorite), hiking and boating. They enjoy spending their downtime on Cape Cod with family and friends at their small but charming cottage. Suzanne has recently started riding horses in an effort to keep up with their daughter June, who is, how do you say ... horse crazy!
