Sue Podany began her real estate career over a decade ago. Residing on Balboa Island, Sue's passion for the industry comes from her desire to make every client of hers experience the quality of life coastal Orange County brings. With extensive knowledge of the local market and expert communication and negotiation skills, it's no wonder she has become one of the most sought after agents in Orange County real estate.
Besides being a seasoned, successful REALTOR®, Sue has been an inspirational and triumphant speaker, trainer, and fitness entrepreneur. Her passion lies in helping others and creating meaningful relationships, which she flawlessly accomplishes with every interaction she has. Being an entrepreneur and a worldwide public speaker, Sue developed an inimitable skill set. Her leadership roles produced her superior communication and negotiation techniques and granted her the experience to work with diverse people on various platforms.
Sue's ability to work with others is her strong suit, putting their needs at the forefront and achieving the ideal outcome for both parties. Although Sue enjoys inspiring others through her speaking engagements, she wanted to find a different avenue where she could help others with a hands-on approach. Her performance speaks for itself with her most recent role as the immediate past President of the Newport Beach Association of Realtors, her Certified International Property Specialist designation, and the completion of her National Association of Realtors Green designation. Her ambition is what drives her forward in each enterprise, maintaining competitiveness with herself, striving to be the best she can be.
What sets Sue apart from the rest is her ability to listen to her client's needs and build a trusting relationship to better assist them in finding the perfect home. Sue is a compassionate, giving person and loves knowing she made a difference in someone's life. Her favorite part of the industry is the feeling she gets after she successfully helps guide a client to make the purchase of a lifetime and the relationship that comes therein. She believes in keeping in good communication, staying on top of the situation, and being one step ahead at all times.
Sue is the 2017 president elect, and the 2018 President of the Women's Council of REALTORS® and Coastal Orange County network and is the Traveling Director for California Association of REALTORS®. A true leader, Sue has always been devoted to giving back to her community whenever an opportunity arises. As a member of the National Women’s Council of Realtors, she is a prominent resource with her connections around the nation for those looking for agents beyond Orange County.
When Sue isn't working or giving back to charitable organizations, you will find her staying active, playing golf and tennis, working out, and rollerblading. Among her many accomplishments, she has written two books and plans to continue speaking and writing to inspire others.
