About Susan
The logo of Susan Ward A creative collaborator at heart, Susan coalesces smarts, strategy, and seamless communication to bring a fresh approach to any enterprise. A lifelong Epicurean who formerly owned and operated restaurants in Washington DC and Virginia, the East Coast native segued a thirty-year career in corporate sales, management, and consulting into a thriving real estate career in 2014.

Known to approach real estate from a business perspective, the Virginia Tech alumni is an outlier in the industry who views buying and selling from a uniquely progressive perspective. Bolstered by a product design background and certified by the American Lighting Association, she has a natural gift for evaluating properties and helping clients envision potential enhancements. It’s no wonder that she successfully purchased, managed, and completed numerous builds from the ground-up. Driven by a palpable passion for helping people realize their real estate dreams, Susan is truly in her element when collaborating with clients.

Abundantly helpful and impossibly high energy, Susan is quick to educate and empower her clients. Acutely aware of the stresses that oftentimes accompany first-time home ownership, she finds great joy in leading First Time Home Buyer Education courses. Operating with a signature blend of honesty, integrity, and empathy, she’s proven to be a trusted partner who always stays a step ahead. Preparation and execution are the cornerstone of Susan’s success, which explains how she famously sold seventeen homes in Los Gatos’s Sorellas Community, netting over $77 Million in sales.

Residing in Los Gatos with her husband of twenty years, the mother of three adores outdoor activities, from hikes in the hills to Music in the Park. Instilled with a lifelong love of teaching, she’s spent the past two years sharing her affinity for the arts, training docents in the Los Gatos Union School District. When she’s not at the office, you’ll find her pursing Pilates, yoga, and golf, or at home entertaining family and friends over food, good wine and sports.

"Sue took over the sale of our property after we had not been successful with another agent. She did research on our property prior to meeting with us, which really impressed us – her detail oriented and thurough approach made our sale happen quickly. We weren’t living in the home at the time and Sue made sure the landscaping was enhanced and maintained during our listing period. She went above and beyond in every aspect of the process. We loved working with her and recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to sell a home. Her husband makes a mean Margarita too!" John & Denise Carey

"We had interfaced with Susan when she was a listing agent for high end homes in our area. We were extremely impressed with her honesty and straightforward communication. She continued to keep in touch with us for several years and as a result, when we decided to sell our $7M home we made the decision to go with Susan. Not many sellers become best friends with their agent and it is a testament to Susan, her knowledge, sales skills, determination and winning personality that we can proudly say we are friends and would recommend her to anyone." The Stanley-Weiner Family

"Susan was our agent for a design build project. Her knowledge of the build process was exceptional and she helped us secure additional features/amenities that were not initially included in the contract. She also helped manage the process as we were not living in the area during the build. I believe we asked many things of Susan that most agents would not have been willing or able to accomplish. I would recommend Susan a hundred times over and will continue to recommend her." The Goushe Family

"We have worked with Susan on several transaction and each time I am amazed at what she knows and her ability to "make it happen". She always comes through with what she says she will do and that speaks volumes in business today. Her genuine care of our family was also something that was evident. She never pushed or made us feel we were asking too much. She made it seem that she was enjoying it as much as we were. I highly recommend Susan!" Tracie S.

" We worked with Susan as the selling agent for the home we recently purchased. We spent over a year with Susan with the design and development of our home. She was always responsive and ready to help at every juncture. She also took a very personal interest in our family's needs and that meant the world to us. I would highly recommend Susan for her high level of professionalism, care and knowledge of the process. " The Sullivan Family

" Susan sold our home During COVID-19 and the way she quickly and efficiently handled the sale was key. We had a very condensed timeline and she had everything ready and on the market with gorgeous staging and marketing in record time. Susan’s communication was out-standing and we sold the house in 4 days and $150,000 over asking price. We highly recommend teaming with Susan. " Susan & Dominic M.
