Sue is an avid flyfishing angler whose love of the water drew her to move from the Northeast to South Florida in 1986. She started selling real estate in Ft. Lauderdale and later designed a line of fishing clothes for women anglers, which brought her to Islamorada. After moving to the Florida Keys, Sue married and helped run her husband’s world-renowned fly-fishing shop while continuing to sell real estate. Her love of the Florida Keys goes much further than just understanding the best neighborhoods to raise a family or where to catch a beautiful sunset. This experienced angler and water lover can share her favorite fishing areas as well as a plethora of fishing tales that even the most experienced fisherman would be jealous of. As a prior business owner, her professionalism is at a level above the rest. She prides herself on being honest and ethical while always looking out for her client’s best interest.
Sue’s dedication to the Florida Keys goes well beyond caring for our beautiful waters. She is a well-respected community member who serves as a board member with Voices for Florida Keys Children and the I Believe Foundation. She has co-chaired the Women’s Tarpon and Bonefish Tournament several times which gave scholarships to local girls studying college-level marine-related sciences. As a woman of many talents, Sue co-authored the Redbone Recipes Cookbook and donated all proceeds to the SF Foundation. Most recently, Sue’s compassion for children led her to a volunteering sabbatical teaching 5-year old children for five months in a rural-urban settlement area outside Cape Town, South Africa. She left South Africa amazed at how resilient the kids were, even with so little, and how eager they were to learn while always smiling. That experience changed Sue’s life and she brings that unique world perspective to the community.
