Susan was raised in Connecticut and has deep experience in real estate both personally and professionally.  Personally, she has relocated over a dozen times throughout New England, and therefore knows all too well the stressful process of starting over in a new home in a new community. A visual processor, Susan sees what things can be, not just what they are. 

Professionally, Susan has over three decades of financial services and real estate experience.  Beginning with leasing apartments, moving to be a regional property manager with responsibility for over 450 residential units and staff of 20, moved to acquisition, syndication and development in commercial real estate.  From there she went into banking beginning as a commercial loan workout officer and rising through the ranks to commercial real estate lender, credit officer, regional business development, and strategic marketing. 

She also has broad non-profit experience working for the Institute for Global Ethics as a relationship manager and Director of Growth Strategies.  She was a certified trainer for the Institute for Global Ethics, completed Executive Development coursework at Bentley College – Managing Ethics in Organizations and is certified Northeast Chapter Association of Corporate Counsel America in Conciliation training.  Susan holds a B.S. in Business Management/Administration.

Susan works tirelessly in her community currently serving on the Boards of Valley Shore YMCA, Essex Art Association, Rotary Club of Essex, member of the Harbor Management Commission, Essex Tree Committee, member of Child and Family Services, Conservator for Life of Essex Land Trust. Previously; Economic Development Consultant Town of Essex, Chair of the Essex Water Pollution Control Authority, VP Essex Historical Society, Chair Sanitary Waste Commission, board member and treasurer, Land for Good, board member and treasurer, Marblehead Festival of Arts, Chair of the Loan Committee for Middlesex County Revitalization Commission, past member of Ethics and Compliance Officers Association, Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics, Harbor and Waterfront Committee Town of Yarmouth ME, Parks and Land Committee, Town of Yarmouth ME, VP Cousins and Little John Islands Improvement Association.

Testimonials

I found Susan Malan very professional and hard working. I have already recommended her to people

Sarah Jansen

Susan Malan was incredibly helpful in our successful search to find our new home. She really took the time to listen to our needs and wants, applied those expectations to our budget, and helped us secure showings quickly to ensure that we didn't miss out on viewings we were really interested in. She was always prompt to respond, and was transparent about each and every step of the process. Thanks to Susan, we found the perfect home - and I couldn't recommend her enough!

Lisa Finnegan

It was great working with Susan and I like her style and the way she approaches the aspect of selling a house. I would definitely recommend her as an agent if someone was looking for one.

What more can I say O most definately recommend her to anyone I know No wonder she is a success Sincerelu Elizabeth Van Wazer

Elizabeth Van Wazer

Susan Malan was a fantastic agent for us. She guided us on various properties - we were over 3,000 miles away. With her guidance we were able to narrow our choice down, do a remote inspection, make a good offer - when another offer was on the table. She knows the area well and can provide pluses and minuses. She was a tremendous resource. She also managed a few predictable bumps for us nearer to the closing. She was also very responsive to any questions we had. We felt we were so guided and had a true partner. We are now in our home and so very happy.

Elizabeth & William Jones

Exceptional work to sell. But Susan did it!

R&W Management Co.

Susan Malan did an excellent job in finding a buyer for our home. She is a highly qualified professional, as well as being thoughtful, courteous, and full of energy! We would recommend her without reservation and we hope to work with her in future. Carol and James Denham

Carol Denham

Susan did an outstanding job with our home sale and purchase. We would definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Chris & Victoria Seidl

Susan is great. We have bought two houses thru her. Very laid back and on top of things.

Jim & Jane Raithel

Susan worked tirelessly on our behalf, both in the buying of our new home, and the selling of our old. We always felt that Susan was available, either by phone, email/text, or in person, especially with facilitating the various people going in and out of our house to prepare it for sale. This was especially important because we were living out of town the majority of the time. She is a terrific realtor, very professional, and easy to work with.

Sally & David Rosengren

Susan is an extremely knowledgeable realtor and one of the very few who know how to market and sell commercial real estate.

R&W Management Co.

Susan Malan is top notch!

Cornelia Bessie Trust

Very attentive and knowledgeable!!

Patricia & George Calkins

SUSAN MALAN is the best I've ever seen. She sold both of my houses in record time over asking price. She's personable, professional, works like crazy, has a great eye, is patient and kind and delivers. I wish she was here in California! Don't go anywhere else.

Sarah Dane-Brown

Susan Malan was the most professional and honest realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was always quick with her responses and helped tremendously in my home search. William Pitt Sotheby has a true asset in Susan!

Kelsey Ann Hansen

Susan Malan was extremely professional and responsive; we felt like she went above and beyond her role as a realtor!
