Suzanne McGuire - Broker / Owner
Please allow me to introduce myself and present my credentials.
I have been working in the SW Florida real estate market since 2007. I started in property management back in 2007 on Fort Myers Beach, then moved into Real Estate Sales, managing large Top Producing Teams, then ultimately as a Broker helping agents grow and be successful in their careers.
My husband Patrick McGuire and I form the Go McGuire Team at NextHome Coast2Coast. I am also the Broker of Record for our franchise.
Patrick and I have helped thousands of people buy, rent, and sell during every market -up, down, or shift.
As SW Florida residents for almost 30 years, we have a keen sense of how far our little corner of the world has grown and changed. We both serve as Directors with our Local Board of Realtors. I serve on the board for the MS Center of SWFL. We have deep roots in our community and give back and support local events whenever possible.
My real estate passion is helping seniors and veterans achieve their real estate goals. This has led to working in probate with families who have recently lost a loved one and need help with the process of selling a property during a very emotional time in their lives. This includes working with trusted partners to handle all aspects including sourcing legal representation, estate sales, donations, etc. My team can handle everything and keep everyone on the same page as we move through the process together.
Over the course of my real estate career, I have strived to improve my skills and increase my education in all areas of the industry. An effective way has been to consistently train on current topics, trends, and issues which, in turn, has allowed me to obtain a number of industry designations.
My signature is frequently followed by these letters:
PMN, CIPS, SRES, CNE, CFRM
PMN -The Performance Management Network (PMN) is the flagship REALTOR® business leadership designation designed to give you practical tools and provide you with access to a nationwide peer network of business leaders.

CIPS- Global real estate opportunities are everywhere. People move to the U.S. from other countries every day and foreign-born individuals residing in the U.S. move to new markets.
