SUSAN MAMAN, a luxury consultant with @properties in Winnetka, remembers meeting company co-founder Thad Wong over a decade ago. “We had numerous meetings where we talked about the possibility of my leaving the local Glencoe brokerage where I had worked for six years and coming to join the new office opening up in Winnetka. I actually felt a strong sense of loyalty to that brokerage and felt guilty leaving,” says Maman, a New Trier Township High School alumna. “Thad drove up to my house in Glencoe and I finally took a leap of faith to join @properties the day they opened the doors in their Winnetka office. Not only has my experience as a broker with @properties been financially rewarding beyond my wildest dreams, but equally as important, I have made life-long friendships with many of my colleagues and managers. I am grateful for Thad’s persistence in recruiting me, for his faith in my abilities and for the company’s unconditional support.” Counting her late mother, Vera, as a role model and inspiration for how she lives her life today. “Her ability to be resilient, when faced with incredible challenges, showed me the importance of being a strong woman.” Recent Glencoe home buyers Micaela and Rob say, “Susan has a rare combination of grit and patience that helped us find our dream home in an unprecedented, challenging housing market for buyers.” Maman says she approaches her career in real estate with similar grit and determination. “Having a positive attitude is one of the keys to my success, both professionally and personally.”
