What distinguishes Suzy Minken in the real estate community is her unique blend of experience in both corporate consulting and interior design. Suzy’s consultative style provides an added level of expertise and sensitivity for all her clients, resulting in extraordinary service and professionalism.
Suzy works closely with her clients so that they understand the current trends in today’s fast moving real estate market. Suzy’s background in interior design and home staging is rooted in the principles of Feng Shui which allows her to readily identify the unforeseen potential in residential properties. From townhomes to single-family homes, home buyers and sellers love Suzy’s intuitive ability to articulate the design benefits of each property and clarify what matters most to them in finding their dream home.
As a licensed Realtor with Keller Williams Realty based in Summit and Short Hills, Suzy delivers a tough negotiation from the initial offer through home inspection issues to closing. Suzy was first introduced to the art of successful negotiation while attending the School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) at Cornell University where she earned her B.S. degree. Suzy also attended the Stern School of Business at New York University where she earned her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree.
Suzy grew up in a Victorian home at the beach in New York. After college, she moved to North Carolina and later moved to New York City where she lived for over 10 years. Like many of her clients, Suzy has made the move from an urban center out to the suburbs of New Jersey to raise her family and knows first-hand how challenging relocation can be.
Choosing a town that is the right fit for one’s lifestyle needs is equally as important as finding a home that has the right floor plan or “footprint”. For Suzy, that “right” town was Westfield, where she has lived for the past 20 years and has raised her two children.
So whether you are planning to sell or buy a home in Essex, Union or Morris counties or the surrounding towns, you can count on Suzy Minken to assist you with your real estate needs and exceed your expectations. Suzy is passionate about finding the best option for her clients, including creative approaches to marketing your home for sale and finding properties not yet on the market.
