About Suzanne


Skip brings her clients a deep and diverse background in financial services. As a former investment banker for 19 years, she has experience structuring loans, navigating complex guidelines, financial statements, and tax returns. She holds a CA Real Estate license.

She is a solutions driven loan officer who views herself as the “quarterback” of your loan, communicating each step of the way and managing the team to keep your loan moving through the process to a timely close.

She is an attentive listener, who enjoys working with first time homebuyers, taking one-on-one time to educate and answer questions, making them feel less confused and more comfortable. She also enjoys working with borrowers who have a complex financial picture and complicated loan structures.

Skip relocated to the Bay Area in 1993 from the Midwest after studying finance at Iowa State University. She lives in the East Bay. She is a Trustee on the Board of Redwood Day School serving as the Chair of the Finance Committee, and is also a member of the Platinum BNI Chapter in Jack London Square. She enjoys golfing, traveling, reading, and wine (not always in that order…)
