Suzanne Gourlay brings an enlightened understanding to the real estate purchase process for a number of reasons. From 20 years of living in Manhattan, to having bought a coop apartment and navigated the process firsthand, to rearing children in the city with her husband, well known architect/developer Garrett Gourlay, and with her degree in interior design. Suzanne is well prepared walking her customers and clients through the complex buying, selling, or leasing process. Her international education and exposure, as well as her sharp business acumen have prepared her well for matching customers to properties and negotiating though the murky waters of complex deals. Suzanne’s early career experience brought her a wealth of knowledge in project management as an account executive for the nation’s largest commercial furniture dealership, overseeing multiple locations, and serving Fortune 500 companies. She transitioned from there into opening her own interior design company, dealing in both commercial and residential spaces. Suzanne is an expert in listening to her customers, envisioning their wishes, and interpreting the use of space in various practical ways. Having this designer’s eye adds another perspective to the buying or selling process. Suzanne can suggest ideas for space planning or reconstruction to accommodate a customer’s needs, making it the most desirable use of space for them. Combining the creative aspects of an interior design background with more technical business experience, Suzanne is a consummate real estate professional – hardworking, knowledgeable, with a passion for real estate, and welcoming any challenge put before her.
