Faces of Frontier Communities: Susan Thompson
At Frontier, we’re all about the people, and that starts from within.
We’d like to introduce you to one of our new-home sales associates, Susan, who has been with us for a year. Susan was born and raised in the Antelope Valley, and is now helping families discover the possibility of homeownership at Diamond Ridge in Victorville, the Frontier community where she works.
“It’s such an exciting but stressful time for them,” she says. “I love sharing in the excitement, guiding them through the process, and taking the stress off them.”
This is something Susan’s been doing since 1977. Yep, she started her real estate career more than 40 years ago, moved into new-home construction in the 1980s and has stayed in the industry ever since.
“I love watching bare land turn into neighborhoods of families,” she adds.
Speaking of family, Susan is a beaming wife, mother and grandmother whose favorite pastime is spending time with her loved ones. Together with her husband of 48 years, Tom, (#marriagegoals!) Susan has three children, and eight grandchildren who range in age from six to 22 years old. You might catch the whole family watching a Dodger game, Susan notes.
“I love the Dodgers and my whole family are avid Dodgers fans.”
While she didn’t play organized sports like baseball, Susan participated in ice skating and ballet when she was young. Another fun fact about Susan? She once got to sit in the cockpit of the SR-71 spy plane while it was on the runway at Edwards Air Force Base. How cool is that?!
If she was the pilot of her own plan, she’d crank up “All About That Bass” by Meaghan Trainor and fly to Australia, one destination she dreams of visiting.
We hope she makes it there one day. In the meantime, we’re glad to have her at home and as a part of the Frontier family.
Home is my “safe place;” it is where my family can all come together and be comfortable and have fun.
