Susie Dunning, Realtor: Find Your Dream Home and Love Where You Live

By  0 Comments

Finding the home of your dreams is more than a financial investment; it’s an investment in your future. Placing your trust in a Realtor can help you navigate the home buying and selling process while gaining valuable tools to help you find the right home.

With 14 years of experience in the industry, Susie Dunning understands the importance of guiding her clients through the real estate process. “My job is to help people find the home of their dreams while taking on the more stressful parts of buying and selling a home. I love my job, but helping people is the most important aspect of what I do. I really strive to educate my clients so they can be more informed about the decisions they make. It’s important to me that clients can rely on my local expertise and industry insight.”

From a young age, Susie enjoyed riding and showing horses. Throughout her youth she enjoyed showing her horses and competing in rodeos. Her love for competing earned her a spot on the women’s rodeo team at Montana State University, where she met her husband, who was on the men’s rodeo team. However, it wasn’t until Susie and her husband set out to sell their home that she realized how much she enjoyed the real estate process.

“When my husband and I began looking for our next home I realized how difficult it was to find a property that we loved and that fit our needs,” shared Susie. She also realized how much she enjoyed searching for properties. “We spent about ten months searching for a home. I was very hands on and involved every step of the way.” When a friend mentioned she would make an excellent Realtor, she realized that her passion for real estate was an avenue she wanted to pursue.

Your Home Specialist
In 2004, she obtained her real estate license and began working for a large real estate agency in the Valley. Susie quickly became one of their top agents. Within her first year, she received the Rising Star Award for her dedication and commitment to clients. Fourteen years later, her stellar track record for hunting down unique properties for her clients while providing exceptional customer service led to an array of real estate awards including the 5 Star Award, Executive Associate and the top 10 percent in her office. Susie is a member of the Master Club Lifetime of Sacramento and San Joaquin counties.

As an independent agent through Keller Williams, Susie continues to help buyers and sellers find the home of their dreams. “I chose to work through Keller Williams because the company is such a trusted name in the business. They have an amazing marketing platform and although I’m a single agent, I can take their solid business model and turn it into a source of trust for my clients.”

The Seller’s Advantage
Based in Lodi, Susie specializes in residential and agricultural properties in Sacramento and San Joaquin counties. “I love helping homeowners find their perfect home. Lodi has something for everyone no matter what stage of life you’re in,” added Susie. An experienced Realtor can also offer expert advice on pricing your home to sell. “One of the most common questions I receive from my clients is how to price their home to attract buyers.”

Selling your home can be a daunting task to take on alone. Hiring a Realtor can provide peace of mind before, during and after the sale, and an experienced agent can bring higher offers from buyers. Inspections are also tricky to navigate on your own; relying on a Realtor to negotiate inspections can significantly reduce unforeseen issues. “My goal is to help my clients feel comfortable and secure with the entire process. From the marketing strategy to increasing exposure to buyers through marketing outlets, working with a Realtor can really help make a difference when selling a home,” shared Susie.

Love Where You Live
Susie uses her local expertise to help her clients find their dream home. “Working with my clients has become more of a partnership than anything. I’m with them through the entire process. It’s important to me that they trust me and that they know they can rely on my expertise,” she affirmed. “I work closely with each of my clients to answer questions and guide them to ensure they are cared for.”

If you are considering purchasing a new home or selling a property in the Lodi area, hiring a Realtor with local insight can ensure you have the right tools to make the best decisions for your future. “Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home,” she concluded.
