Fluency in German and Spanish has proved to be a great asset in serving Washington's international community. Susan's real estate expertise and success may be attributed to her academic, professional and business background.

Her business experience has included responsibility for residential construction and renovation of luxury properties, as well as founding Susanne Safer Associates, Ltd., an Interior Design firm. The purchase or sale of a property is a complex transaction with both business and emotional components. Susan's training in psychology makes her singularly responsive to her clients' needs. And her business experience enables her to address questions of construction, renovation and design in a creative and cost-effective manner. Moreover, her trained eye enables her to help buyers by pointing out the potential of any given house, and help sellers "stage" their property in order to maximize return. And, having experienced first-hand how a person's house fundamentally affects every aspect of life, Susan is dedicated to helping her clients make housing choices most beneficial to them. A passionate traveler, Susan has visited each of the five continents. Her experiences range from floating on a houseboat in the Vale of Kashmir, to visiting a Men's Spirit House in Papua New Guinea, to luxuriating in a suite at London's Connaught Hotel.
