One of Suzanne Powers' greatest loves is to teach people how to sell residential real estate. Suzanne was honored 7 years ago when John Lohre of Marquette University reached out to asked her if she would like to help out the Real Estate School of Marquette.

Every fall Suzanne Powers teaches a 2-day class of budding commercial real estate students from Marquette's School of Real Estate a little bit about the world of residential brokerage.

"We have a great time. The first day is a field trip to a property listed by Powers Realty Group. We usually pick a big Mansion on Lake Michigan that has some unique characteristics and beautiful views of Lake Michigan." The second day Suzanne teaches the students how to compose a comparative market analysis on the property the students visited.

"That's where the real fun begins, in the classroom setting trying to price the home."

Suzanne Powers is no stranger to teaching in the classroom setting. Early in Suzanne's career she was asked to returned to her alma mater, UW-Whitewater. Every semester for nearly 10 years, Suzanne was the guest lecture for the School of Business Personal Selling Class. At Whitewater, Suzanne emphasized selling skills in the classroom and groomed the business students on how to prepare for that first professional interview.

"It was a great environment for recruiting medical device reps for Johnson and Johnson. We recruited many of our new sales representatives for my division from the graduating classes I taught. It was such an honor to be asked to return. I was never the smartest kid in the class, but I networked and sold myself like crazy for opportunities to help others."

At Marquette when Suzanne is able to help out the Real Estate School, it fulfills an inner need to give back to all the people that have helped her on her journey. Suzanne Powers is grateful to Marquette's Real Estate School to have an opportunity to help students take a peek into the wonderful world of residential real estate in Milwaukee and explore some of America's most beautiful architecture.

"I am so proud to see the growth in the School of Real Estate at Marquette University, and I am immensely proud of their recent recognition as one of the best Real Estate Schools in the Country.
