Susie Kanter

Awarded Top Producer by the Chicago Association of Realtors every year since 1997

Take one part banker, two parts mortgage broker, and three parts veteran real estate agent. Blend with a combination of persistence and tenacity bordering on the obsessive and you've got a recipe for Susie Kanter.

Susie is passionate about helping folks buy and sell residential property and helps them navigate the often choppy waters of the real estate marketplace. She is well-respected by her fellow brokers (just ask) and has worked as a buyer's and seller's agent for 20 years. She has quietly built her business by word-of-mouth.

The fact that she ranks, according to the Chicago Association of Realtors®, among the top 1% of brokers (since 1997) is a testament to her hard work and the loyalty of her clients who continue to seek her out as their needs evolve.

Susie has what it takes to keep complex deals together under difficult conditions (think inspection glitches, financing gotchas, and sale contingencies) and is downright compulsive when it comes to staying in touch with her clients. She has been known to drive the rural roads of northern Wisconsin in search of a cell phone signal, while on a family vacation, in order to personally handle an unexpected glitch in a transaction.

Susie enjoys a successful career with sales in excess of $175 million Susie loves what she does and loves living in Chicago's vibrant Lincoln Square neighborhood with her family. Her children attend public school in the city where she actively serves as a volunteer. You won't find a more committed or dedicated ally.

Suzy's expertise in real estate comes from over 20 years of selling in the Chicago Market. Prior to her real estate career, Suzy enjoyed a successful marketing management career at IBM. She brought the sales skills and professionalism she learned in that corporate environment to her real estate career. Suzy is a graduate of Northwestern University (B.A.) and York University (M.B.A.).

Suzy strives to provide quality service to her clients. And she clearly succeeds, as proved by her “Best in the Business” award from the “Quality Service Certified” organization which recognizes the top 250 agents in the nation based on feedback from their clients. This award is given to real estate professionals with an average 30+ annual transactions and a perfect or near perfect record of customer satisfaction (reflected by their independently validated records from client input). Suzy is justifiably very proud of this award and the extraordinary service it represents.

Having lived in many different Chicago neighborhoods, Suzy prides herself on a city-wide knowledge of residential and investment properties. She has participated in a variety of new construction and conversion projects on both the buyer's and seller's sides and has experience working with transferring buyers and sellers. Additionally, Suzy's average marketing time in 2010 was 68 days, with an average sales to list price of 95.4% Those are impressive numbers in a challenging Real Estate market. Suzy also holds the National Association of Realtor's Green Designation.

Suzy\'s personal passion and avocation is working to save the lives of homeless animals. She is the founder of “Realtors to the Rescue of Homeless Animals”, a 501c3 non-for-profit dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals in the Chicagoland area. The organization uses the vast network of Realtors and the website www.realtorstotherescue.com to promote the adoption of homeless animals and to support area animal shelter fundraising and education events. For all of her efforts in this great cause, the Chicago Association of Realtors recently awarded Suzy the Realtor Community Service Award for her outstanding contribution to her community. She is also the recipient of the Rose Fay Thomas award from The Anti-Cruelty Society in recognition of her contributions to saving homeless animals in the city.

Suzy's other interests include golf, gardening, movies, theater and travel.
