Susan Churchill

20 years

of winning complex negotiations, uncompromising client care and an empathetic hands-on approach have earned Susan the devotion of her clients.


of Susan’s business comes from referrals & satisfied clients who return to her repeatedly. Susan moved to the San Francisco as a young woman and soon relocated to Marin County. She attended San Francisco State University and Cal State Northridge. She also spent many years in Los Angeles pursuing a career in motion picture advertising distribution.

The Win-Win Challenge: A Tale of Two Careers

In Los Angeles, Susan helped build a regional movie advertising distribution company into a top-rated national firm servicing over 4000 clients throughout the US. During her 10 years as the firm’s VP of Client Relations, Susan’s specialty was (and still is) converting client challenges into win-win solutions. Susan’s leadership in the company included planning & implementation of award-winning customer service software that transformed the firm into an industry-leading, national player.

Giving You a Decisive Edge: How You Bid Matters (it’s not just the Money)

  • Understanding & Mastering the Transaction: Today’s real estate contracts are packed with clauses that require close scrutiny and meticulous attention to detail. Susan has a thorough understanding of exactly how to effectively  advocate client interests.
  • Creating Successful Strategies: When & How an agent bids on a client’s behalf can be just as important as How Much is offered for a home. The same thing applies when agents advise sellers on which bid to accept. If the bid process/approach is poorly planned and executed, the landing is likely to be bumpy.
  • Negotiating Solutions: Converting client issues into win-win solutions requires a creative approach, the right temperament and, frankly, lots of practice. These qualities are the foundation of Susan’s winning approach to multiple-offer negotiations.
  • Overcoming Adversity & Winning for Clients: 20 years of proven success in high-stakes transactions & fast-moving real estate markets gives Susan’s clients a decisive edge.
