Boston Magazine’s 2020 Real Estate Experts
Suzanne & Company
Bedford, MA | 781-275-2156 | suzanneandcompanyre.com
Twenty years ago, Suzanne Koller began her real estate career as a solo agent and called herself Suzanne & Company before there was even an “& Company.” Now, here she is in 2020, with a team of 13 and growing. She attributes her success to her love for all things real estate. “Seriously, I’m obsessed with it,” Koller says. “From the client relationships to the market reports to the staging and design, and beyond.”
She has surrounded herself with a powerhouse team of women who all have a designated area of expertise on the team, which strengthens their service level. They are anchored by their core values: Succeed as a team, keep growing, do the right thing, make it happen, and have fun together. The team is very well known in the communities it serves, often chosen by clients because Suzanne is such a strong community connector. People refer to her as “Suzy Sunshine” because she is frequently seen around town doing something great for the people—spreading joy and bringing others together through events, social network groups, or the many charities the team supports.
During this COVID-19 crisis, she even started a grassroots cause: Operation Feed the Soul. Using her platform, she collected more than $50,000 in donations to purchase meals to support local restaurants and had a crusade of volunteers to deliver the food to local hospitals and medical facilities in Boston. “If I can use my connections during this time to help out my restaurant friends and show gratitude to our medical teams, then I’m going to do it,” Koller says.
Koller and her agents are passionate about helping clients achieve their own real estate goals. Making the move to Compass has allowed Suzanne to elevate her offerings to her sellers with programs like Compass Concierge. She loves assisting with home renovations and projects to increase the home’s value and the client’s experience. “This is an extremely personal—yet professional—business,” she says. “It’s an honor to be trusted by so many families in the Greater Boston area.”
