Susan O’Rourke has enjoyed living in New Canaan for more than 27 years. She comes to the real estate business after establishing a successful design consulting firm specializing in working with homeowners, builders and architects. With this, she was instrumental to clients building new homes and renovating existing ones across the New York City area. Her experience affords her the in-depth knowledge today’s prospective buyers are looking for. She also helps sellers maximize the potential of their property and knows how to quickly learn and understand buyers’ ultimate dreams to help make them a reality. She not only understands the nuances of the area, but the true value of each property.

Susan is a real people person, understanding the value of real estate and managing the intricate details all in a timely manner while making sure that her clients’ needs are heard and understood.

According to Susan, “I have a passion for architecture and homes, as well as working with people… [with] the unique experience of moving to seven states while growing up. Adapting to new situations and learning to enjoy new people was a huge part of my childhood. I have bought and sold six of my own properties in New Canaan and have built an award-winning home with my brother in Texas, which sold before it was even on the market. I continue to work with many of my past clients [and] believe I have earned their trust and the extra bonus of their friendship.”

Susan has raised two sons who attended both public and private schools in New Canaan. She has been involved in the First Presbyterian Nursery School, South School, New Canaan Country School, New Canaan High School, the Nature Center, Horizons, Meals on Wheels and local clubs such as the Winter Club. She is also a member of the New Canaan Board of Realtors, the New Canaan Multiple Listing Service, the National Association of Realtors and the Greater Fairfield County Multiple Listing Service. Proudly, Susan was presented the award for Highest Sales Price 2018, the Platinum Circle Award 2018, and the Emerald Club 2018 for her continued success.
