She boasts over 500 sales in San Francisco and almost 20 years as a Zephyr Top Producer and is also a member of Zephyr’s Premier Property as a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS).

When catching up with Susan about her Zephyr anniversary, she shared some inside information about herself to get to know her better.

1. What neighborhood do you live in and why? How long have you lived there and what do you love best about it?

“I live on Potrero Hill; I bought my home in 1985 and I came here for the sun, views, quiet and friendly neighborhood, and loved the wide streets and it is also a very dog friendly neighborhood, which is important to me. What I love best are my neighbors and friends who live here.”

2. What do you love to do in your spare time?  

“In my spare time I love walking my dog here on Potrero Hill and all over the city. San Francisco is a great walking city and there is always something new to see. I also belong to the gym at UCSF and you will often find me swimming up on the roof in the outdoor pool. Am also a “foodie” so eating out here at the great restaurants on Potrero Hill and other parts of the city is really fun for me, and there are many places with patios that are dog friendly, which works for me.”
