My family relocated to San Antonio in 1964. I later attended the University of Texas at San Antonio and was graduated with a bachelor's degree in Psychology in 1980. After college I went to work with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in the Wildlife division. I was assigned to the South Texas region and had the privilege of working and traveling throughout the 32-county region trapping and transplanting indigenous species, doing yearly census of deer, turkey, and doves as well as other assigned special projects. Additionally, I had the good fortune to see some of the most beautiful South Texas ranches and unique habitats. I had the time of my life!
I later married and settled into working in a civil district court, where there was rarely an opportunity to be startled by a rattlesnake or walk up on a herd of feral hogs; although the courtroom environment did have some similarities.
I earned a real estate licensed in 2001, and soon joined my RE/MAX family. I obtained my broker's license in 2004, and in 2006, I purchased a RE/MAX franchise and opened a new boutique brokerage in Garden Ridge, a bedroom community of San Antonio. Quickly, I realized that my joy was in helping and educating my clients with the purchase or sale of real estate, not owning and operating an office. I sold the brokerage and passed the baton to one of my agents. To this day I continue to market properties for sale and assists buyers with purchasing homes, condos or investment properties.
I have received many RE/MAX awards but I am most proud of receiving the "Hall of Fame" award.
When I come home from a busy day and see the wagging tails of my Chihuahuas, everything is right in the world. To relax I find a good book and the pups and settle in.
“I cannot imagine that anyone, anywhere, is doing this job better than Sue. I recommend that anyone reading this do whatever you can to get her as your real estate agent. As first-time home buyers in a hot market, my wife and I really needed someone who we could trust to take care of us and help us to understand more about the process. From day one Sue made us feel as if we’d been long-time friends and exuded a sense of confident control, which we came to see was very well founded because she is exceptionally knowledgeable and does this job with effortless excellence. So, feeling “taken-care-of” was immediately established and only grew stronger as the process went on. As an assistant principal I would happily offer Sue a job teaching (although she clearly has found her calling) based solely on this home buying experience. I went in knowing nothing but throughout the process Sue helped us to learn everything we needed to know. Not only would she advise and guide us through the process, but she would always check to make sure that we understood everything, including why she was offering that advice. We knew so little about the process of home-buying that we couldn’t even clearly explain what we were looking for but after a little getting to know us and a lot of searching out houses to get our opinions on, she was able to provide listings that consistently caught our interest. Then came all of her guidance through the process of which homes to put in an offer on (including guidance through that process as well of course), which to pass on, and why. All of her guidance resulted in us confidently purchasing our first home which we are exceedingly happy with! And the icing…like any good professional that also happens to be an excellent person Sue is connected to so many other good and friendly professionals who, just like Sue, are great at working with you towards your best interest (she connected us to our lender, inspector, and several other people that we will continue to do business with). One would have to be a complete fool to not work with Sue as his agent…don’t be a fool.”

“Without a doubt, hands down the best experience we could have for our home purchase. Sue A. Johnson was the absolute best to work with again. Sue was professional, accessible, knowledgeable, and just a pleasure to have as part of our ‘family’ during the home-buying experience. AMAZING!! Sue A. Johnson is the epitome of excellence in all areas! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a broker and real state expert in the San Antonio area.”
