Congratulations to Susie Huang! She celebrated her 2-year anniversary with Zephyr Real Estate in July and is based in our Noe Valley office.

Growing up, Susie Huang often heard a phrase from her father, “helping others is the fountain of happiness.” This phrase has guided her through her life, and as a REALTOR, she has been able to combine this philosophy of “helping others” with her professional experience in property and finance management to assist her clients in locating their dream homes as smoothly and as seamlessly as possible.

Over the last 20 years, Susie has directly managed multi-family residential properties while pursuing a successful career, culminating as the Chief Financial Officer for the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley. After taking an early retirement in 2009, she started running half marathons and recently completed seven half marathons on seven continents. In 2015, after accomplishing this goal, she decided to combine her appreciation for beautiful homes with her interest in helping others in achieving the American dream of home ownership, and became a Bay Area real estate agent. Susie joined forces with Zephyr to take full advantage of a company that believes in supporting each realtor with technology, training, and tools and ultimately guaranteeing satisfaction.

When Susie is not busy checking out properties or open houses, you can find her hiking, cycling, traveling the world, or walking her dog with her granddaughter at Holly Park in Bernal Heights, Tilden Park in Berkeley, or Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County.

We got to know Susie a little better when catching up with her about her Zephyr anniversary.

1. If you could meet anybody in the world from any time, who would you want to meet?

“I would like to meet President Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and my mother whom I didn’t have a chance to know and spend much time with. I believe she was an extraordinary woman and ahead of her time. She raised me to be a strong and competent woman.”

2. What are the most valuable assets in your life now?

“My health, family, friends, and my community. I am surrounded by people I love and admire and in a career I enjoy doing each day. All of these elements nourish me as a human being and maximize my happiness.”
