About The Wright Team
Susan has lived her entire life in the Richmond area.
When she graduated from Douglas Freeman High School, her parents moved to Tappahannock, Va. and Susan started VCU and earned a Masters Degree in Social Work as well as a minor in Math. She became a Social Worker for the State of Virginia working with the General Assembly writing grants for Foster Care as well as traveling around the state teaching Foster Care caseworkers the new laws that she helped get passed.
After 5 years in the social work field, she became a Realtor for about 2 years, started having children and decided to not work nights and weekends and went into a similar field selling household transportation for Mayflower, ranking many times as the #1 salesperson in the nation. But her heart was always into Real Estate and knew that once the kids “flew the coop” she was raring to go back . She knew that Remax Commonwealth was where she wanted to be. In her previous job of selling transportation, Realtors called on her and she knew that REMAX Commonwealth was by far the best of all the Real Estate companies she dealt with. She went back into real estate 8 years ago (when the real estate market had crashed). She never learned the bad habits that had fallen upon many agents that had been order takers during the booming times.and basically they had forgotten how to work. Susan has not looked back. Being a Realtor is the perfect fit for Susan with her Social Work background, knowledge of construction, compassion and competitive spirit.
