Hello and Welcome!

Suzanne Z Kaykas

The person whom you select as your Real Estate professional should
be someone you can relate to. Let me introduce myself.

I migrated from the East coast 45+ years ago to become an Oregon resident!

I experienced a 360 degree lifestyle change, moving to and then living in rural Lane County.

I immediately fell in love with the stunning beauty of this great State, its lovely quirky citizens and the many wonders it has to offer.

Oregon’s great outdoors is a particular love of mine and has been a constant for me through 30+ years of exploring endless hiking destinations.

My Real Estate career began in 1991.

I have been a repeat licensed million dollar producing Realtor for the past 30 years! My Real Estate career began with Coldwell Banker and then a move to Re/max Integrity Real Estate, before starting my own Independent Boutique Brokerage in 2001.

Residential, Commercial and Investment properties and mortgages are all areas that I work within and am familiar with.

I continually strive to maintain the best quality of service for my clients and stay on the cutting edge of ever changing technology and information. Knowledge in an industry is a beautiful thing and what motivated me to learn the mortgage business and become a licensed loan originator in 2001. I was licensed in the State of Oregon from 2001-2015. These 14 years of additional training and hands-on experiences in the Mortgage Business as a Loan Originator have added countless benefits to my Real Estate Services and ultimately enabled me to serve my clients more efficiently.

To understand my pivot to my Real Estate career please let me give you a little of my background.

Simultaneous through 2001 and previous to 1991. I was involved in the marketing and promotion of the Arts with International Entertainment through Regional, Local Businesses, Education and the Community.

Formerly I owned and operated Regal Productions. An independent local Entertainment Promotion Business that contracted, marketed and promoted International Entertainers from 1978-2001. I promoted the first Rock and Roll show in the Hult Center in 1982 and with the last performer I brought to our community was Harry Belafonte. There were many performers in between and to name a few: Linda Ronstadt, Sade, Huey Lewis and The News, Joe Cocker, Tom Jones, George Strait, Crystal Gayle, Natalie Cole, UB 40, James Brown, The Temptations,Tony Bennet, Simply Red, David Copperfield, The Bangles, Toto, LadySmith Black Mambazo, Wynton Marsalis and The Smothers Brothers. The entertainment business has many challenging variables (like Real Estate). I had many rich experiences that sharpened my business/life skills in numerous areas and enabled me to promote Oregon, Lane County, the Eugene/Springfield area, the Hult Center, The Cuthbert Amphitheatre and the Schnitzer Concert Hall in PDX to local patrons, national and international entertainers, their agencies and staff as well as assisting while establishing the Hult Center for the Performing Arts Center, as a viable stop for entertainment performances in Oregon. In addition I held a contract as an Independent, Local Promoter with the City of Eugene in the capacity as a co-sponsor of numerous performances for 8 years.

I have cross promoted and co- sponsored International Entertainment events with hundreds of Local and Regional businesses. I consider myself very fortunate to have had a niche which was a unique and wonderful platform to facilitate and endorse many local organizations working for a better community environment, I was able to get to know many of the community driven and local business services and Art groups up close and that are the thread of the fabric that make up this County, State and its residents.

I am fortunate to also be the Mom to two sons, a daughter in law and I have grandchildren whom I adore. They have expanded my depth and allowed me the joy of watching a new generation grow up. This honor reminds me every day of the importance of our actions today and the effects it has on the future which directly impacts our communities and where we live.

My oldest son is at Lytics. A Portland based firm that utilizes his top notch analytical,marketing and managerial expertise. My daughter in law is in the green technology industry and my youngest son joined me in the Real Estate profession where we perfected a family based business experience and who is currently on pause from it while he became licensed to help the growth of children who are on the spectrum.

Luckily I also have multi generational hands on experience through volunteering in our public school systems and in the classroom on field trips as well as on the field and courts as: basketball timekeeper, baseball scorekeeper, soccer coach and debate referee, in/school and after/school activities not limited to but including high school student counseling for college scholarship programs. What a joy and journey it has been.

My philosophical approach to business is “old school”. Clear communication, ethics, honesty, fairness and customer service in every situation. I take pride in being a team player and I believe that understanding your options in a business transaction that has a multitude of changing variables for each individual situation is integral to understanding the process and making clear informed decisions.

I work hard to make your Real Estate experience professional and as smooth as possible and take pride in the many repeat clients that I am fortunate to call extended family through the years . I am especially humbled by 3rd generation clients.

I enjoy what I do and appreciate the reciprocation from my family, friends, associates and clients. I look forward to you becoming part of that circle.

Please contact me with any question you might have, or, information needed, on the next step in the sale and or, purchase of property in which you are considering.

I will look forward to it.

My best,
Suzanne
