With her experience living in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years, Suzanne’s success helping her clients achieve their real estate dreams is primarily due to her strong work ethic, fueled by an unwavering positive outlook. Suzanne began her career in 1995 as a full-time, licensed real estate agent in Park City, eventually becoming an Associate Broker in 2010. She thrives on challenges in the market, and goes above and beyond to help her clients attain the lifestyle of living in a mountain town, whether it’s a vacation or investment property, or primary residence.
Graduating with a degree in Marketing and Public Relations from San Jose State University, Suzanne gained considerable knowledge and experience working for advertising and PR companies in the Bay Area. Shortly after this, she began what was to be the start of her career in real estate assisting several prominent commercial and residential developers throughout California with their marketing and advertising needs. After moving to Park City in 1992, she earned a reputation as a top-producing agent by leveraging her extensive background not only in real estate development and marketing but also in relating to her clients on a personal level.
While Suzanne’s success with her clients is the result of her outgoing personality and her extensive real estate background, she will say it’s mostly due to the pleasure of being a realtor, as it’s one of the most rewarding endeavors she’s undertaken. “Working with amazing people, from CEOs to retirement couples to individuals buying their first property, having people put their trust in you to make one of the most important decisions of their lives,” she says, “is both exhilarating and humbling.” For this reason, Suzanne works tirelessly for her clients. Whether it’s creating comprehensive marketing plans, participating in the design process of a new construction home, or conducting principled negotiations, she pays attention to every detail. The outcome of her professional approach typically results in gains for both her buyers and sellers, respect and appreciation from colleagues, and referrals from her former clients.
Suzanne’s upbeat personality, tenacity, and knowledge often puts her in the position of being a mentor to realtors who are new to the business. When she does find time outside of her work with clients and colleagues, she enjoys spending time in the great outdoors. Growing up sailing in the San Francisco Bay, she fulfills her desire to be outdoors by spending weekends at the Jordanelle Reservoir, camping in the Uintas, paddle boarding and gazing at the stars.
We have known Suzanne for 13 years, purchasing four properties and selling two properties. Our repeat business tells it all. Suzanne is a consummate professional. She has tremendous market knowledge of the area and its resources. She is responsive, energetic, realistic, and a pleasure to work with. She has met or exceeded our expectations in each of the six transactions she has handled. We strongly recommend Suzanne to everyone.

We can’t say enough great things about Suzanne! With her help, we were able to purchase a home in Park City, something which we never thought would be possible. We had touched base with Suzanne several years ago about potentially being able to upgrade and had asked her about refinancing our condo. She was extremely helpful and connected us with all the right people to make it happen. We stayed in touch with Suzanne over the next few years and then began looking for condos in the area. With Suzanne’s suggestion, we looked at a single family home and loved it. Suzanne was incredibly helpful at every step of the process, from selling our condo (which she sold in one day), to inspections, and loan options. During every step of the process she was helpful and offered expert advice. She is incredibly well connected and knows the real estate business amazingly well. Suzanne was invaluable and is amazing to work with and we recommend her to everyone we know.

Suzanne helped us both sell and buy in Park City. She is a fabulous partner and kept the process very calm and successful. I would absolutely recommend her and would definitely work with her again if we need a realtor. We are very happy!

Suzanne is an excellent real estate agent. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She is dynamic, attentive and personable. She took the time to understand our needs, tastes and desires and then showed us many excellent properties. She is proactive but we never felt pressured or hurried. She always had our best interest in mind! We were very fortunate to have such a highly skilled and exceptional agent working on our behalf. I would recommend Suzanne without reservation.

We were new in town, did not know anyone and a friend of my husband’s recommended Suzanne Pretorius. I called her to ask for help with an offer on a townhouse. She immediately went to work for us. She called the other agent and when we ended up in a bid against a full cash offer, she had it taken care of on our behalf and the deal was wrapped up by the end of the day. When we sold that townhouse and bought our next house, of course, we called Suzanne. She always puts our feelings first and cares deeply about our happiness. We were treated like VIP’s and felt like we were her only clients, even though we know she has several. She was very attentive to our phone calls and emails and even calmed us down when we became stressed. Suzanne knows the Park City area well and is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She has integrity, kindness, and patience and will make sure you get everything you want and deserve. We highly recommend Suzanne for your real estate needs if you are looking for a trustworthy and business savvy professional that will have your best interest in mind throughout the process.
