SUSAN COLELLA of NAPERVILLE | After Raising Her Two Daughters, Local Mom Finds Real Estate Career
MAKING A LIFE CHANGE
Susan Found Herself Ready to Go Back to Work Once Her Children Were Independent and Real Estate Became Her Next Obsession
Susan is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, Certified Relocation Specialist, Certified Staging Consultant, and is Broker Price Opinion Certified. She brings ten years of experience with Baird & Warner in Naperville as a full-time dedicated Realtor offering a positive, energetic, work ethic and extraordinary customer service.
After leaving her sales job in the corporate world to raise her two daughters and be present in their daily lives, Susan kept busy being an amazing mom who was there in every way. From dance classes and creating a beautiful, happy home to helping out in her daughters' classrooms and teaching piano lessons to other children– she enjoyed this precious time. After her kids were independent, Susan found herself ready to back to work and real estate became her next obsession.
"I found the work to be very rewarding since I was helping people and it allowed me to also be very available to my girls. Also the job was what I had been training for my whole life, sales, working with people, helping people and designing and creating advertising," shared Susan.
Combining her patience, resilience, ambition, and creativity with the use of innovative technology led the way to a 2021 career peak assisting 50 clients and $19,600,000 in sales.
“I don’t wait for things to happen, I make things happen,” Susan says. “I use the Homesnap App on my iPhone to set up showings quickly, do instant CMA’s on the spot, use DotLoop to send paperwork to clients, and Zoom, Facetime and Google Hangouts for impromptu meetings and video showings.”
Susan works efficiently and effectively and has built a strong, reliable network of professionals including preferred lenders, attorneys, photographers, general contractors, and stagers.
Listings are her passion and she works directly with her seller to gain inspiration for restyling the home with staging, coordinating elite photography inclusive of drones for aerial views, and videography to create a visual storybook enhancing unique social media ads.
Since Susan is not on a team, she is the direct contact for her clients which provides a powerful tool when compounded with her residency in the west suburban community where she has personally bought and sold homes and raised her two daughters.
In anticipation of the thriving Spring market, Susan is meeting with buyers and sellers. Call today!

MENTORING OUR FUTURE
"My advice is to be very positive and patient when starting your business and never let your mind wander to a less than positive platform. Starting a business takes at least a few months to several years to build your client base and become very competent in your field. Every experience, good or bad, will help you grow and is a valuable lesson."
