About Susan

Buying a home can be an exciting and daunting task. You want expert guidance whether you are a first-time buyer or selling a home that has been in your family for generations or looking for an investment opportunity. You need someone who listens to your specific requirements – someone who gets you. Meet Susan Hand, a distinguished top 1% real estate producer nationwide, with millions in sales annually and countless satisfied clients.

Experience, knowledge, and proven negotiating skills are all essential factors in selecting the right real estate agent for you. Susan has over 25 years in the real estate business, but years more, if you count Sunday afternoons in her childhood, spent going to open houses on the Westside of Los Angeles. It’s in her DNA to focus on the details for what makes a home ready to buy or sell for maximum results. Her goal is to provide you a sophisticated analysis of the Washington DC area market trends and sound strategic investment planning.

Susan’s passion is people — listening to their needs, making suggestions and delivering on dreams. Prior to working in the DC real estate market, she helped launch one of the most prominent jewelry design firms in the area, Ann Hand LLC. where she served as Vice President. During her time with the firm, she worked with high profile leaders in the government, business, the arts, and the military. She is accustomed to the needs of those in demanding careers as well as the young military wife or mother proud of her son or daughter serving their country.

Throughout her career, Susan has received high marks for her interest in serving her clients’ needs as well as her community. She volunteers for the Aurora Hills Women’s Club, Green Manor Garden Club, Arlington Community Foundation, Doorways (for Battered Women), Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Foundation for Prader-Willi Research, Women’s Diplomatic Club of DC.

Susan is a member of Army Navy Country Club, the Greater Capitol Area Association of Realtors, the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.

Susan’s listings have been featured in the Washington Post, Wall St. Journal, New York Times, Arlington Magazine, and Washingtonian Magazine which honored her as one of the top producing agents in the Washington DC area.

Aside from her passion for all things real estate, Susan’s passionate about animals. She resides in Arlington Ridge, VA with her two border collie rescues and one Shih Tzu/Bichon mix. Her annual dog “pawty” is attended by many neighbors and friends at Fort Scott Park in September.

When not focusing on clients, her community or animals, you can find Susan in some exotic locale scuba diving amongst the wonders of the sea.
