Susan Bartow Joins Surterre Properties; First Listing is Golf Legend Phil Mickelson’s Rancho Santa Fe Estate

Posted by Claire Adams — March 2, 2012

1330709337Susan Bartow, a REALTOR® with more than 15 years of experience, has joined Surterre Properties® and will be serving local home buyers, sellers and investors from the company’s San Clemente office.

Her first listing since joining Surterre Properties is a significant one: the $7.1 million Rancho Santa Fe estate owned by professional golfer Phil Mickelson and his wife Amy. The approximately 9,500 square foot, five bedroom Tuscan-style home sits on approximately 4.88 acres and comes with two guest villas. This incomparable estate offers some of the most stunning, unobstructed sunset views in Rancho Santa Fe.

Bartow is proud of the numerous repeat clients and referrals she has earned over her career. In fact, she has represented the Mickelsons in four real estate transactions since starting her real estate career in 1997. In 2005, she was the buyer’s agent for the largest sale in Rancho Santa Fe history.

1330709447What sets Bartow apart from other real estate professionals is knowledge of the constantly changing real estate market, combined with her keen attention to detail and willingness to go the extra mile for her buyers and sellers.

“It’s incredibly satisfying to help someone make their dreams come true whether it’s working with a first-time buyer or the seller of a luxury estate,” Bartow said. “My clients can expect an incredibly high level of service along with high technology – it’s truly a ‘high touch, high tech’ – way of keeping them posted on new listings, price changes and what’s going on in the fast paced real estate market.”

In fact, Bartow even goes so far as to supply her buyers and sellers with private access to the entire Multiple Listing Service’s inventory of homes for sale and previous closed sales, so they can search for homes and do their homework on their own.

From CEOs to professional athletes in search of the perfect home, to pharmaceutical companies looking to relocate employees, Bartow works with a high level of discretion — one of the many reasons she is a perennial top producer.

A lifelong resident of Southern California, Bartow possesses a deep knowledge of the market’s most coveted neighborhoods and communities.

A former middle school teacher and administrator, Bartow is particularly well versed with regard to school systems, making her a valuable asset for families with children.

Resources like an in-house marketing team, the affiliation of the industry’s best and most accomplished agents and brokers, plus their use of the latest industry technologies are just a handful of ways Surterre is innovating the way real estate is done. With all these advantages at her fingertips, Bartow is able to focus her efforts on delivering the high level of one-on-one service for which she’s known.
