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 New York 45+ years ago to become an Oregon resident!
I experienced a 360 degree lifestyle change, working in Manhattan then moving to and living in rural Lane County.
I immediately fell in love with the natural beauty of this great State, its lovely quirky citizens and the many wonders it has to offer. The outdoors is a particular love of mine and has been a constant 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 to stay on the cutting edge of ever changing technology and information, which 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, has added numerous benefits to my Real Estate Services and 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 and Local Businesses, Education, Fitness, Nature and the Community.
In addition, 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. The last performer I brought to our community was Harry Belafonte, with many performers in between, from Linda Ronstadt, Sade, Huey Lewis and The News, Joe Cocker, Tom Jones, George Strait, Crystal Gayle, Natalie Cole, UB 40, James Brown, The Temptations, Simply Red, David Copperfield and The Smothers Brothers, to name a few. The entertainment business has many challenging variables (like Real Estate). I had so many rich experiences, that sharpened my 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 and to have been able to get to know many of the community driven and local business services and Art groups, up close, that make up this County, State and its residents.
I am fortunate to also be the Mom to two sons’s, a daughter in law, step daughter and son in law whom I adore and who have expanded my families depths, allowing 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 and the community where you live.
My oldest son is employed with a large SF based firm that utilizes his top notch marketing expertise; my daughter in law is in the tech industry. My youngest son has joined me in the Real Estate profession and who has numerous years of musicianship under his expertise. My step daughter is a full time Mom and son in law is in the Insurance business. My family and our multi generational result of it, participates, in sports, music, and extra curriculum activities associated with growing children and their community.
Luckily, I have spent many years with hands on experience, volunteering in the class room and on the fields and courts, with highlights of serving as basket ball time keeper, elementary school soccer coach, base ball score keeper, debate referee, while mastering a variety of tasks with in/school and after/school activities, including college scholarship direction for High School students. What a joy and journey it has been.
I have an old fashioned philosophical approach to business. 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 as smooth and professional as possible and take pride in the many repeat clients that I am fortunate to call extended family through the years. 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.
