About Sue Stires

Susan (Sue) Stires epitomizes integrity, energy, and hard-work and creative service in every detail of your real estate transaction. Sue grew up in Iowa and started her sales habit at the early age of 11 selling popcorn in the local theater and then moving on to the Ben Franklin Five and Ten.

In 2009, Sue took a huge industry leap into real estate sales and joined Watson Realty Corp in St Augustine Beach after an illustrious and fulfilling career with Olan Mills.

Sue interviewed several brokers with the big franchise companies, Sue chose Watson because of their reputation, size and because they are a family-owned corporation.
