ABOUT SUZANNE WARNER
Passion. Integrity. Drive. Tenacity.
It’s not only how Suzanne Warner approaches her business—it’s the way she lives her life.
Recently joining the Compass Real Estate Group, Suzanne brings with her an impressive track record: sales topping $20 million in her first two years of business. She is also listing agent for the 505 Ranch Club, an exclusive community of 56 private waterfront homesites along the banks of Cedar Creek Lake.
Her official CV reveals more about this dynamic, resourceful businesswoman. A multi-faceted position at iconic specialty retailer Stanley Korshak highlights a 24+ year career in luxury fashion. As a buyer, she spearheaded the growth of high-end menswear collections, including Kiton and Ermenegildo Zegna; on the sales floor, she ranked among the top producers with annual sales well over $1 million.
What kept her fiercely loyal clientele coming back? Along with impeccable taste and an eye for design, Suzanne was also lauded for her focus, expedient follow through and stellar customer service. “It’s all about matching the right people with the right product,” she says. “In any service-oriented industry, relationships are everything.”
Never one to rest on her laurels, Suzanne added Director of Marketing and Social Media to her Korshak resume in 2015. “Exceptional product is a given. But you need the whole package—merchandising, strategic planning, advertising, public relations and event planning—to truly optimize sales and productivity.”
A self-admitted “remodeling 12-stepper,” Suzanne sites a life-long passion for home interior design and remodeling for helping spur her move from retail into real estate. Yet her ultimate “a-ha” moment came during the re-do of her North Dallas home—a project that brought into play the culmination of her skills, from high level negotiating to high tech marketing.
A firm believer in giving back, Suzanne is founder and chair of Exposed, a bi-annual event benefiting the AIM at Melanoma Foundation. The goal for 2019 is to raise over $200,000 for tissue bank research, a 50% increase over the 2017 inaugural event. Suzanne is also a supporter of TACA, The Arts Community Alliance, and St. Mark’s School of Texas.
A native Texan, Suzanne and her husband Mike have a daughter Grace, a Hockaday graduate now studying Finance at Trinity University. Their son Ryan is a St. Mark’s junior, currently exploring his college options. They spend family time traveling to waterskiing tournaments and fishing at their lake house in East Texas.
