    I was born and raised in Ontario Canada. I spent my summers sailing on Lake Ontario with my parents, camping in Northern Ontario and going to horse shows with my horse "Leo". During the mid 80's I packed up my horse "A Touch Too Much" and moved to Virginia. I became an American citizen. I worked for a Equine Veterinary practice assisting and managing the practice for 18 years. When I wasn't at work I helped my husband build homes just outside of Washington DC in a small quaint county in Northern Virginia. We enjoyed building and creating homes not only for ourselves, but for other people as well. When I wasn't working and building, I was in the show ring with my four legged buddy or meandering through the woods and galloping across fields. In 2002 we bought our first property in paradise. Yes! Right here in Venice, Florida. Over the next few years we couldn't get enough of Venice so we sold our properties in Virginia, packed up our dogs and made Venice our home. Our dream came true. With my background helping my husband I decided to get my Florida Real Estate License and I am fortunate and happy I did. I won National Rookie Sales Associate of the year and I have won Coldwell Banker International Sterling Society Award multiple times and Diamond Society. Everyday I go to work and I feel like I am on vacation. I do what I love and in a place that I am passionate about. Working with my customers to make their real estate dreams come true is exciting. I enjoy making a difference in peoples lives and I do this by delivering exceptional service thru honesty, integrity, experience and communication. If you are selling or buying or even just thinking of making a move later in life, call or email me and use me as a resource.Affiliations:Member of the National Association of Realtors ,The Florida Association of Realtors ,The Venice Area Board of Realtors.

    We are so happy we chose Sue Smith to sell our home in Venice. She was highly recommended by a number of people in my community and I now know why.

    Sue Smith is the realtor you want and need. She is proactive detailed oriented and will constantly communicate and step in on your behalf to make sure your real estate process is going smoothly. Her professionalism and negotiating positions are effective and helpful to her clients. From my experience during the recent purchase of property, I could not have asked for a better realtor. Thank you Sue!

    Noel gave Sue 5 stars out of 5
    As somewhat experienced in buying and selling property my dealings with Sue Smith were one of the most pleasant. She was extremely responsive to my questions and patient with her explanations of the process of selling. It took two months to complete this sale during which Sue was always available, ready to act with amazing speed in obtaining information I needed or wanted, and always in the most professional manner. Sue was the first person I interviewed to represent me as a realtor and I knew immediately i needed not to look further. I was lucky to have found her. I wish her the best.
    Response from Sue
    01/19/21
    Happy new year Noel. I hope you are healthy and you are enjoying a winter season for a change. You were fantastic to work with and I enjoyed every minute and am so happy we got your condo sold quickly. If you ever need anything you know where to find me.

    Sue was very helpful in listing and selling our condo. She went above the call to help facilitate the sale. She was able to make suggestions to help in the showing of the unit. We used help to sell our condo and also buy a villa. Very responsive to questions.

    Sue did an outstanding job supporting the sale of our Florida condo. She was very knowledgeable about the local market and continually monitored local activity throughout the sales process. She regularly checked-up on the property (as we were out of town) to make sure it displayed properly. Sue also provided regular status updates. I also appreciated her fast response to any questions I had or information I needed. Thank you for a job well done.

    Rick gave Sue 5 stars out of 5
    Sue was wonderful to work with in finding a place in Venice. We spent a couple of days with Sue and looked at numerous properties. She really listened to what we wanted in a home and did not mind when we changed requirements. When we went back home to Michigan, Sue kept us infomed of new listings and became our eyes by visiting properties in which we were interested. When we finally found the one, Sue handled everything for us. Super knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend working with Sue.

    Sandra gave Sue 5 stars out of 5
    When we decided to list my mother's condo, our friends highly recommended Sue to us. We met Sue and were impressed with her sincerity and professionalism. We listed with her and never regretted that decision. Her follow up was exceptional. She kept us updated on the status of our listing through emails and phone calls. We knew every time it was shown, she electronically staged the living room on line, she featured it on line. She continually demonstrated the type of work ethic that is rare today. She attended every meeting, even when it was not necessary. She came to the facility where my mother lives when paperwork was to be signed. She interacted repeatedly with the buyer's representative. I did not go to closing as it was not necessary and she did not have to be there but she once again displayed her dedication to exceptional service by attending and reporting back to us. I would recommend Sue to anyone who was seeking a real estate representative.

    My Mom could no longer live alone, and we had to sell her Condo, from another state. Sue made is easy. She was professional, responsive and provided her market and sales knowledge so I can made informed decisions on selling price, negotiating an offer as well as closing without having to physically be there. The Condo sold in less than 1 week after listing and at 95% of asking price. I am a happy, satisfied customer and would highly recommend her.

    Diane gave Sue 5 stars out of 5
    Sue made my purchase of a home in Augusta Villas an incredibly pleasant experience. She was willing to share with me not only the positive points about the property but also the things to look out for. I learned a lot about the things I should look for when buying a home. Sue spent the time to listen and understand what I was looking for in a home. I think that is very helpful because, as a result, time is not wasted.
    Response from Sue
    06/14/19
    Thank you Diane. I really enjoyed meeting you and finding you your home in Paradise. I hope you have many years of health and happiness In your new home. Looking forward to a game of golf this winter. Maybe you can help give me some pointers!

    Gary gave Sue 5 stars out of 5
    Sue was suggested to us by a friend who owns a condo in Venice, and we couldn't be happier with that recommendation. She listened closely to what we wanted not only in a house but in a community. She was very organized and selected communities that matched our list of requirements and houses that fit our price range. When we requested a last-minute change of plans for our second day of the home search, Sue was very responsive and understanding. She contacted the two communities that we wanted to revisit and canceled the other plans. After signing a contract, Sue continued to be a great resource by suggesting a pool service company, a light fixture retailer, and a furniture store. Sue was a true professional and very comfortable to talk with during the entire home buying experience. We are thrilled with our new house in Sarasota National and owe it to Sue's real estate expertise and her exceptional knowledge and love of the Venice area.

    Thank you Gary. I am so happy for you and Donna. It was a pleasure working with you. We certainly did a lot in just a couple of days. See you in the fall!

    Sue has been Very helpful in fact I don't think I would have sold this property without her help. I live outside the area and have not ad to go there to meet or do anything. Sue took care of it all. Suggested the time to reduce the price but gave me plenty of time to think about it without ANY pressure to decide. I'll recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell property. Helped me in many ways.

    Sue Smith listened and immediately understood my requirements. She showed me the whole area of Venice/Sarasota in order that I might make an informed decision. Susan assembled a portfolio of properties, drove me tirelessly around, answered all of my questions and concerns. I ultimately purchased a beautiful home in Venice. Sue helped me every step of the way, help I needed as a Canadian purchasing for the first time in the US. Sue made my whole experience pleasurable and fun. She is a caring individual who clearly enjoys her chosen career. I endorse and recommend Sue to anyone who needs a real estate agent. Thank you Sue

    We worked with Sue to buy our first condo and then our villa. She also sold our condo for us. My sister and her husband also just worked with her to buy their first condo! She is one of the most professional and efficient realtors we have ever met. You have assurance of knowing she "knows her stuff", and is watching out for you as well as offering suggestions about how to maneuver the process. We would never think of having anyone else as a realtor. We recommend her highly and without reservation! She's the best!

    We have used Sue on a couple of transactions and have also referred her to family and friends, whom were also satisfied in their experience. Great communication, you always get a callback in a very timely manner. Have known Sue for almost 7 years and will continue to use her services in the future, though we could not be happier where we are now in the Plantation Golf and Country Club. She knows how to get the job done quickly weather your buying or selling!
