Talk about a busy lady: From realtor to house renovator and “flipper” to professional singer to sports participant to working with charitable and church organizations, Suzy Steinmann does it all! And then wonders why her husband says she’s a “workaholic”!
A native of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, a mid-sized city on the southern shore of Lake Winnebago, Suzy graduated from Goodrich High where she participated in girls’ sports as a freshman before changing her focus to music. She was in all the class plays and musicals and was a classically-trained vocalist in high school. Suzy married shortly after graduating and moved with her then serviceman husband to Arizona where they started their family. She later earned a bachelor of science degree in Business/Applied Management from Grand Canyon University.
After working at Ocotillo Golf Club, Smitty’s, and a few other places, she entered the real estate business nearly 30 years ago. She’s been associated with Home Brokers Realty, Keller-Williams, and now has her own team at Realty ONE Group. In addition to being an agent, she’s also been a productivity coach and trainer of other agents. Additionally, she’s a hearing panel chair, ombudsman, and mediator on the Professional Standards Committee at her local Realtor Board where she fields complaints regarding ethics and arbitration disputes.
Sixteen years ago, Suzy met her husband-to-be Scott on Match.com (yes, it does really work sometimes!). Scott’s been a minor league baseball player, coach, and manager, spending over 20 years in the Mariners organization and the last three with the Oakland A’s. He’s currently manager of the AA Midland (TX) Rockhounds. In the off-season, he and Suzy “team up” as home flippers and renovation consultants for their company Redeemed LLC. Think of them as quasi-equivalents to Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTV’s Fixer Upper fame, “only much less rich,” she says!
Suzy has three children and three grandkids. Son Jake, a Senior Master Sergeant in the Air Force, is married with three kids; daughter Alexandra is single and a teacher in Taiwan; Benjamin, the youngest, is a recent graduate of NAU.
Singing remains a passion for Suzy. She’s been a professional singer for years, performing at numerous local venues and private parties. She’s recently formed a “yacht-rock” band called On Pointe, performing soft rock from the mid ‘70s to early ‘80s. Check out some of her solo material at suzysteinmann.com/audition.
Suzy’s charitable work focuses on Foster Arizona, an organization that helps kids transition out of foster care. She’s also been very active in church-related activities and considers her faith a very important part of her life.
One of the top players on our Lady Sluggers softball team, Suzy hit a solid .604 last year and hopes to top that this year with her smooth “lefty swing.” She also golfs, hikes, plays recreational basketball, is a yoga devotee, and recently started to get into pickleball in her “spare time”! As a “mild” understatement, she said, “I like to stay active!” You don’t say!?
