About Suzanne Martin

Residential sales is my true passion. From a young age, I have been fascinated by architecture, gardens, and the evolution of communities. After living in various neighborhoods in the city, my husband and I moved to Wilmette to raise our three children. I loved living near the lake and would often pack up our gang and head down to the beach. It felt like we were on vacation, even if just for a few hours. As a real estate advisor, I get to help people discover how they too can live their best life in the North Shore and Chicagoland.

I joined Engel & Völkers because of the company’s standards of excellence and commitment to providing white glove service to me and my clients. When my clients hire me, they are hiring peace of mind. I am particularly adept in solving complex situations, with the confidence there is always a solution. Over the years, I have gained invaluable experience in and around Chicago’s North Shore. One of my most memorable experiences was helping an out of state client purchase a horse farm and all of the intricacies of that.

Giving back has always been a passion, especially in the area of education. I taught Sunday School at Faith, Hope and Charity Church, and volunteered in the Wilmette and New Trier Public Schools. My priority now is to tutor second and third grade students at the Howard Area Reading Program in Evanston schools.. We serve bright kids who cannot otherwise get the support they need; it is tremendously satisfying when I can help them with their literacy and confidence. Having lost my dad at a young age, we were forced to become independent and confident, and I know how important that is. I grew up in a large family of seven girls and one boy in Beverly on Chicago’s southwest side. We learned the value of hard work, sacrifice, gratitude, and perseverance, all of which shape who I have become and drive my professional ethics.

My husband and I enjoy playing bridge, and going into the city to explore restaurants, festivals and different cultures. Chicago and the North Shore offer so much and we are determined to take advantage of the lifestyle it affords.
