Susan Lissak REALTOR®

Susan Lissak

There's no better time than now to prepare if ever you plan to purchase, lease, or sell your house. I am Susan Lissak, a licensed ATX REALTOR® at the Texas-born brokerage JB Goodwin REALTORS®.

I left my childhood homestead at 12 to study Classical Ballet at the prestigious Julliard School. This training opened the door to a world of travel and performance worldwide as a ballerina and actor. My Broadway debut was at Radio City Music Hall, and I later performed on Holland America's 100-day Grand World Cruise. The opportunity to meet people from various cultures with diverse backgrounds and traditions touched and inspired me and remains a motivation for me today as a REALTOR. Guiding others like you in finding a house you can make into your home is priceless. 

As wonderful as life can be, it is not always butterflies and roses, and I've had my share of opportunities to speak to this. However, having a family brought me the joy needed to help me remain focused and grounded as I took on the role of a single mother. My kiddos and I have beautiful memories to reflect upon, like visiting theme parks and state fairs, caving in the Ozark Mountains, and even performing in front of a crowd of 50,000 at Seoul, Korea's Olympic Stadium; indeed, a dream come true.

Inspiring and educating others is also very near and dear to my heart, and I had the privilege of spending much of my family life as a teacher to students with learning differences. I surprised myself when I used my musical theatre background to develop a multi-sensory method to educate and challenge these students. Concurrently, I worked another fun job in real estate with Camden Property Trust, LLC, where I received several top sales awards. It was a busy time, much like what you may be going through now. If so, I can relate.

Once my children moved to start their careers, I used the skills and talents I had perfected while at Camden to embrace a new adventure in the deep South at the native real estate brokerage Latter & Blum, which recently merged with Compass Real Estate. In my administrative capacity there, I garnered significant achievements through relentless dedication, savvy risk-taking, and steadfast support to over a hundred agents. Yet, despite the delectable cuisine, I seized an opportunity to relocate 'north' to Austin, Texas, which became my forever home! Then, I could genuinely appreciate how Dorothy must have felt when her life on the yellow brick road was over because I realized there is NO PLACE LIKE HOME!

But wait, the story is not over. My darling husband, my biggest fan, who supports me in my REAL ESTATE endeavors 100%, also enjoys his free time with me playing golf at Great Hills Country Club, lounging on our deck while viewing Austin's picturesque Hill Country, and watching our two dogs play. The latest addition to our family, a Siberian kitten named LaLa, has seamlessly integrated herself into the family, convinced she's one of the canine crew.

By now, I hope you have a promising idea of who I am and how my passion for people, places, performance, and persistence guide me in my endeavors—allowing me to show you that my dedication to putting you and your needs first is what I love to do, plus wouldn't it feel good to know you had made the best decision of your lifetime. I cannot wait to get to know and collaborate with you so we can turn your real estate dreams into reality! Let's Talk! 512-962-7837
