With the warm summer breeze blowing through her hair, an expanse of blue sky above her, and surprises over virtually every hill, real estate was the last thing on young Susan’s mind. Well, almost the last thing. In reality the family was out on a search for a new home. And they ended up finding the perfect one…in Caledon.

After attending Credit View Public School (now the Centre for Indigenous Excellence and Land-based Learning) Susan then went on to Mayfield Secondary School. Later she completed her horticulturist certificate and training, first working as head gardener at Devil’s Pulpit. Eventually she established her own business and she excelled at manicuring estate residential gardens, garden design and property management.

After a 20-year career working in gardens and physically taking care of her clients’ largest life investment Susan decided it was time for a switch.

Real estate became very much on Susan’s mind.

“With my belief in property ownership, the transferable skills from my business, and my love and knowledge of the local area, I knew real estate would be a great fit” Susan explains. After completing the required courses and exams she obtained her real estate license in 2010.

Susan Huntley has lived most of her life in Caledon. She says she loves it “for the sense of community, the open green spaces, the trails, parks and rivers, the Niagara escarpment, the multitude of outdoor activities, and the many small, charming villages that make Caledon whole.”

Being familiar with the surrounding areas as well, Susan says she focuses her real estate work in Caledon, Orangeville, Erin, Mono and Mulmur. “The hills of Headwaters are my happy place” she says with an earnest smile.

Well-informed and experienced as a realtor Susan views market knowledge, negotiations and contract skills, and local area familiarity as three of her strongest assets. She also puts great value on the relationships she builds with her clients and colleagues, along with related service providers such as lawyers, lenders and contractors.

And she loves her work. “I like to focus on using my knowledge, patience and expertise to lessen the stressful moments that find their way into such a huge life transition. The smiles and thanks that come at the end of that process are my joy.”

Asked about her personal approach to life Susan’s answer comes easily “Do only good and share with others. Smile, be kind, be honest and caring. The glass is always half-full, perhaps even overflowing.”

Lastly, I ask her for her message for our readers.

“Perhaps you are looking to purchase the perfect spot for your family, or maybe you have spent years enjoying the same beauty and Headwaters lifestyle as I have and are now ready to downsize. Either way I will comfortably guide you through the intricacies and subtleties related to the purchase, sale and ownership of Caledon and country properties.”
