Women of Distinction 2023: Powers Realty Group | Milwaukee Magazine

Suzanne Powers has a long and impressive list of achievements. She’s the only female brokerage owner in the top 20 real estate companies in Milwaukee. The owner of Powers Realty Group Inc., she has been the top-selling agent in Milwaukee’s North Shore for nearly two decades. And as Wisconsin’s No. 1 boutique brokerage, Powers Realty Group ranks first in the state in large team sales volume and first in the highest average sale price of the top 25 companies. “I’ve had many grateful clients come back to thank us, and I think that’s what makes us No. 1 – it’s that repeat customer,” Powers says.  

But Powers didn’t start her career in real estate – for a decade, she worked in medical device sales before switching industries and building her brokerage from the ground up. Powers Realty Group now has a team of 20 sales executives, and this year they surpassed $1.7 billion in sales to date. “What I’m most proud of in my career, I think, is the team that I’ve built,” Powers says. “They are second to none. They work just as hard and tirelessly as I do, and we produce amazing results.”

“I’m completely invested in my clients. Their happiness is my happiness.”

Q&A

What are some achievements you’re particularly proud of?

In my career, I’m probably most proud of the team I’ve built at Powers Realty Group. I have the most admired agents and staff. They’re exceptional – second to none. They work just as hard and tirelessly as I do, and we produce amazing results. I’m proud of the collaborative nature of our team. 

On a personal level, both of my daughters just graduated at the top of their classes – one at MIT and the other at Madison – and they both landed amazing jobs.

You’ve referred to your work as a “vocation.” What makes it more than just a job for you?

You know, I’ve had a lot of grateful clients. I think that’s what makes Power Realty Group No. 1 – that repeat customer. I love my clients, and really, I love Milwaukee. When our clients come back and tell us how good an experience they had working with us, that’s really rewarding. We’re invested in their happiness – I really feel like I was born to do this.

What advice do you have for someone at the start of their career?

The real estate industry is fiercely competitive. You have to work long hours – it’s not a part-time gig. And you have to work with integrity. There are no shortcuts to success. You just have to put in the time and the effort every day. And you have to really care. It can be a frustrating journey at times, but when you look back after some years, you see all you’ve accomplished. At this point in my career, I’m really looking to take on a mentorship role and help those people who are committed to succeeding and making a difference in the industry.
