Her Story

It’s Sue Hewitson’s goal of providing a uniquely superior experience for her buyers and sellers that’s put her in the top 1% of over 15,000 Twin Cities Realtors® year after year, caused her to be locally recognized by Mpls/St. Paul, Minnesota Monthly & Twin Cities Business Magazines for her efforts and success, and made her a breakout star at Fazendin Realtors since 2001. Her countless repeat clients and referrals know her for the trusted creative marketing strategies, long-time experience in the Twin Cities metro area, an unparalleled confidence, and for working tirelessly to meet her clients’ needs without fail to become a top-producing agent in her marketplace.

A passion for connecting with clients and the ability to simplify what can be an overwhelming process allows Sue to guide you to make great choices and drive results time and again. Sue uniquely offers a rare expertise in vintage homes that can only come from the history she has with the area and intricacies of the market she serves so well. While houses of any vintage have their own quirks, Sue truly understands beyond expectation the signs of a great historic property and provides wisdom and resourceful solutions when needed. Her customer-focused approach puts her clients at ease, knowing they have the best person on their team when making a big move.

Sue’s strong Marketing foundation comes from a degree in Communication Arts from Regis University as well as her experience working as an Account Executive at a world-renowned Advertising Firm in the Twin Cities – both equipping her to be a strong negotiator at all levels of a transaction and giving her a pronounced sense of creativity and strategy when bringing her clients’ homes to market. Her go-getter personality and ability to embrace technology to connect with clients and collaborate with other real estate professionals is a huge asset to both buyers and sellers. Sue also has an additional level of understanding of what it takes to market, sell, negotiate, and purchase high-end properties.

Growing up in Edina, graduating from Our Lady of Grace and Benilde St. Margaret’s High School, and now living in Southwest Minneapolis with her husband and two children, Sue is truly passionate about the community she calls home. She loves being involved with her kids’ activities and education, volunteering at school, coaching her daughter’s volleyball team, and cheering her son on in hockey and soccer.

Sue continues to lead Fazendin Realtors in homes listed and sold – her level of efficiency, professionalism, knowledge, trust, and confidence is unmatched. Sue would be honored to play a crucial part in your home buying or selling story by helping you make all the right moves!

She truly listened to know what we looking for in a home.
