Appointed a “jack-of-all-trades” by family and friends, Alex Susma says he’s the type of person who loves to learn and takes the time to expand his knowledge.
Susma comes from a family of civil engineers and real estate agents, which sparked a passion for everything real estate. He was led to start a real estate career of his own after gaining hands-on experience remodeling, and says he has the creative mindset to envision the true potential of a home. “Picture walking through the doors of your new home,” he says. “I want to know what that is like.”
Growing up in the northwest suburbs has made Susma appreciate and understand what each different town has to offer and what makes them preferred so much by the families living there. He adds that moving and living in the city for the past decade has provided him with all the excitement that makes Chicagoans love their city, from nightlife to food to different cultures and neighborhoods.
Professional accomplishments in the past year include two property remodels, one residential and one commercial—both gut renovations. Susma personally planned, managed, and worked on both projects, including drafting 3D renderings and schematics, pulling permits, and identifying crews to ensure the final products exceeded expectations.
Additionally, Susma has been named a Top Producer in 2019 and 2021 and is on track to do the same in 2022. He says his organization skills are instrumental to his success, but he’s also able to negotiate any situation to his client’s favor.
