Suzy Trowbridge and her husband and four sons have resided in Princeton for the past twenty-nine years. A Chicago-area native and a journalist by training, she was a reporter for the Chicago Tribune following her college years at Newton College, now Boston College. Because of her husband's work with the Ford Foundation, the family lived in Latin America and in the Caribbean for ten years, giving the family the opportunity to appreciate diverse cultures and languages.After several years in Washington, D.C., the Trowbridges settled in Princeton where their four sons were educated and participated in the community's arts, music and sports programs. Their three oldest sons are now married and live near other large universities.Their youngest son, a musician, now lives in New York. Suzy's husband continues working in international education and development in New York.After writing the "It's News to US" column for Princeton's weekly Town Topics for several years, Suzy's interest in retail businesses, including her own partnership in an import business, Primas, led to her career in office and retail leasing for locally based stores as well as national tenants expanding to the Princeton market. She worked with the leasing team for a large mixed-use retail center, and as a consultant in leasing for Palmer Square Corporation and for Peddler's Village in Bucks County.Her association with the Henderson family's real estate firms has spanned nearly fifteen years. When Henderson Real Estate was sold, Suzy and Hal Hoeland, launched their own brokerage specializing in commercial real estate development and office leasing until rejoining Henderson Sotheby's International Realty. While retail and commercial markets are of continuing interest to Suzy, she has focused recently on residential real estate. Her current listings and sales range from high-end historic homes in Princeton Borough, to the renovated condos and residences on Witherspoon Street, as well as office/commercial locations in downtown Princeton.
