I’m someone who believes in doing things the right way. Owning my own business and working with my family and people I trust allows me to do just that.
I’ve always been self-employed. There’s a real strength in being able to decide what we stand for. For us that’s transparency, being true to our values, and having the freedom to express who we are as people.
I established Susa Guhl Partners in 2017 having returned to Nelson from Auckland, however, my real estate career began here in Nelson nearly 30 years ago.
Back then I was a determined single Mum of three juggling multiple jobs to make ends meet. I had a vision and a burning desire to work hard and create a good living so that my family could thrive.
I learnt the real estate ropes here in Nelson. I had some positive senior mentors but also witnessed things about the industry that I didn’t like and wanted to change for the better. Those were important early lessons that I am still mindful of today.
After meeting my late partner Marc we collaborated in business for many years, operating as part of a national real estate organisation together.
We always knew the kind of work culture we wanted to create and the kind of real estate professionals we wanted to be – not typical, always striving to be innovative, setting high standards for ourselves, and being the kind of people that we ourselves we want to deal with and would want to recommend to our own friends and family.
My daughter Ana and family friend Lydia work with me now and they help me to continue to operate a strong, values-based business. Ana, Lydia, and I provide a service for our clients of which we are all proud. We strive to be “recommended for a reason”.
We continue to grow our team purposefully and intentionally, with the addition of our newest team member Lydia in 2020.
Ana, Lydia, and I work for vendors who want a real estate team that is transparent, does what it says it will do, provides truthful advice and feedback, and uses a clear process that is reassuring and understandable for both vendors and buyers.
We work hard and we get things done. What you see is what you get with us – and what you will see is substance.
“Thank you Susa and Ana for restoring our faith in the Real Estate profession. Your total professionalism and attention to detail meant that our property was not only sold promptly but also at the price we hoped for. Thank you for all your efforts on our behalf.”

"We recently purchased a property that was listed by Susa Guhl and Partners and found Susa and Ana very pleasant and straightforward to deal with. They offered us good advice about what to look for and how to go about the process. They were transparent and not 'pushy' at all. It was as stress free as is possible under the circumstances. We would definately recommend Susa Guhl and Partners."
