Whether it’s scaling Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, playing roller derby with the Rose City Rollers or buying and selling homes, there’s one thing you should know about Suzie Mayes–she is always up for an adventure.
Hailing from Hotlanta, Georgia, Portland has been her home since 2002, and 10 of those years have been in North Portland. In 2006, Suzie bought her first of two homes in the Kenton neighborhood. While running around with her realtor, she was immediately hooked on the thrill of driving around the city, discovering small, but growing neighborhood pockets and experiencing how different a home could present online versus seeing it in person.
She looked at dozens of homes over the course of several months until falling head-over-heels for a modest, two bedroom, 1 bath, mid-century ranch with an open floor plan. Suzie loved fluffing up her nest and took great pride in her first home that was small, but perfect for entertaining. She even invited her tribe of new mamas over to her basement for a monthly craft and wine night. When it was time to upgrade, she loved the neighborhood so much, she ended up buying a big, quirky 1912 fixer, just a few blocks away.
Suzie knows the process of searching for a home can have its fair share of ups and downs, but she also knows that the hunt, excitement and possibility of getting into an incredible home is palpable. Through her careful listening skills, she will take time to become familiar with your home aspirations and plans for the future to get a realistic vision of what you want in a home.
If you’re selling, Suzie can help can help you get your home ready through tips on simple spruce-ups and DIY staging or, if you’re going with a pro, she can recommend outstanding landscapers and stagers that will make your home shine. Suzie is also partnered with her longtime friend, the talented and charming Amanda Haworth, here at Living Room Realty.
When she’s not checking out homes, Suzie can be found at her spirited daughter’s soccer games, racing around the flat track with the Rose City Rollers or planning her next adventure in search of the freshest oyster shooters and tasty IPAs.
What Suzie’s clients are saying:
“My wife, daughter and I had a short time frame to locate and purchase a home in Portland. With Suzie’s assistance, we were able to visit more than 20 homes over a weekend, evaluate the homes reviewed, and make an offer, which was accepted. But for Suzie’s help, I do not think that we could have gone from looking to closing on the purchase in 3 months. If you are looking for a dedicated, hard working real estate professional, you need look no further than Suzie Mayes.”
