We chatted with Boss to find out more about her work and what drives her.
CultureMap: What inspires you to do what you do?
Susan Boss: I learned when buying my first home that a home purchase is one of the biggest investments for most people. A buyer and seller need someone to help navigate the process. I have had the opportunity to get to know and make long lasting relationships with my clients, who entrust me with accomplishing their goals in regard to real estate transactions.
CM: What's one piece of advice you'd give to people looking for their dream home?
SB: One piece of advice I have seen to hold true over the years is location is a priority. A buyer can change almost anything about a home they don't like, but after you have personalized your home to perfection, if you don't like your location you may never be happy with your investment.
CM: And advice to those who are selling?
SB: The current trend with low interest rates and dual-income buyers is to find a property that is move-in ready. Buyers have more purchase power with a small difference in the monthly payment to purchase a home at a slightly higher price than to put cash in and live through a remodel while they are being attentive to a job and other commitments after closing.
CM: Sum up Houston in three words.
SB: Opportunity, multicultural, big-city amenities.
CM: What do you consider your "special skill"?
SB: Ongoing market research has been a vital aspect of my long-term success. Knowing how to leverage this information has allowed me to consistently and effectively negotiate on behalf of my clients.
CM: What's one thing people might not know about you?
SB: I worked as a registered nurse in the operating room before changing careers to real estate in 1984.
