Suzanna Cecchin - REALTOR®
My story as a Madisonian started in 1989 when I moved here as a young child with my mother. She had struggled financially for years, and was finally able to make her first home purchase in Madison and find the financial stability she had never before enjoyed. This was my first experience witnessing how home ownership could transform one's financial footing and what a wise investment it was for the future. It wasn't long before I grew deep roots and connections here. I graduated from West High School, then from UW-Madison with a major in Anthropology. Over the years I've worked in a variety of jobs from the Wisconsin Historical Society, to the restaurant industry, to the field of early childhood education. Meanwhile I have been self-employed as an owner and manager of two rental properties in Madison.
My Real Estate Experience
I’ve lived all over Madison, from the West Side, the Isthmus, and now the East Side, and consider myself well-versed to many of the neighborhoods in our community. My interest in real estate began in 2004 when I followed my father's footsteps and made my first home purchase in an investment property. The plan was to owner-occupy the 2-flat near East High School, where I also did extensive remodeling and landscaping. In 2006 I purchased another investment property, a mixed-use building on the Isthmus. After owner-occupying for 10 years, my husband and I found a remodeling opportunity in the Near East Side Atwood-Schenk neighborhood. For the next 8 months we watched as our new home transformed from a 1890 farmhouse fixer-upper to our forever dream home overlooking Lake Monona.
I currently reside in that dream home with my husband and two young children. In my free time I enjoy traveling, painting, seeing live music, and spending time with my family. Now that my first born is in elementary school, I have decided to expand my horizons and focus my expertise on the buying and selling aspect of real estate, to help individuals realize their home ownership dreams. I'm excited by the opportunity to guide home-buyers and sellers alike through the process, whether it be finding a starter home, a forever home, downsizing, or buying or selling investment property.
