I am a local area expert with knowledge of the surrounding communities. With 80% of homebuyers using the internet to search for their new home, you will want an internet specialist working both with you and for you! My broad experience and training will enable me to market your property in the most effective way. I understand how to make transactions come together. My dedication and work ethic has led to a happy and successful career in Real Estate. My goal is to make your real estate transaction a very pleasant and financially beneficial one.
I attended the University of Alabama where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and was named the “Outstanding Student in Sales and Sales Management” by the Birmingham Alabama Sales and Marketing Group. I am a member of Chi Omega Sorority.
During my previous experience in sales management for a major corporation, I had extensive training in managing behavior, communications, relationships and negotiation. While I still had one full time job, I embraced another challenge—I entered the real estate arena as an Investor. I have successfully turned rehab projects into tax-deferred, 1031 exchanges for investment property that meets my long term investment portfolio. I researched and personally utilized Gulf Opportunity Zone Act (GO Zone) incentives for additional investment purposes. I have successfully negotiated pre-foreclosure, short-sale transactions working with sellers and multiple banks. I personally manage my investment property portfolio. Friends and my supportive husband encouraged me to use my organizational skills, my ability to multi-task and what I've learned in many personal experiences with real estate to help others to be successful.

As a 23-year resident of East Baton Rouge Parish, I have concentrated on, but not limited myself to, the area of East Baton Rouge. I have extensive knowledge of the homes in the LSU area and the Brightside corridor. I thoroughly enjoy working with fellow investors; first-time buyers; buyers and sellers that are upgrading or downsizing; those who will be relocating to the wonderful Baton Rouge community; and those of you that are being transferred from the area.
On a personal note, I am happily married to my husband of 23 years, we have a lovely home here and have chosen to make this the community where we’ll raise our two very active little boys. Growing up in the St. Tammany area and being a graduate of Mandeville High School, I can still appreciate the strong impact and sense of community that the smaller south Louisiana areas have to offer. I am a member of St. Aloysius Catholic Church, an active volunteer at the school and a participant in many community events. I am a voracious reader of any book that will enhance my knowledge of real estate. For fun, I love to rehab houses, scuba dive and travel.

"Susan Watson was extremely helpful in our pursuit of finding a new home! The process took about 7 months, and from start to finish, she was patient, encouraging, and always immediately available for showings and questions. When we made an offer on a home and ultimately went to closing, she made the process look easy! She was very professional, timely, and knowledgeable, guiding us every step of the way. Finding and buying a home can be very stressful, but Susan made our experience seamless and worry-free. I highly recommend Susan Watson as a realtor!"

"Out of the blue we walked into an open house and got in contact with Susan. During Halloween night we saw a house that we liked and gave Susan a call. She helped us with everything (viewing, pricing, contract, home inspection, insurance, closing, utility set-up, ...). You name it, she helped with it. She made time for us whenever we had a question. If she did not had an answer direct, then she got back to us within a very short timeframe. It was very pleasant interaction. Professional and at the same time also personal. "

"We bought our dream home thanks to Juli in January 2015. I remember when I said we wanted the house because Juli replied “Great, but first, I want make sure its priced right, in case you ever do want to sell.” I honestly thought nothing of it because why would we sell anytime soon. Well 6 months later my husband had a job opportunity we simply could not pass up. Before accepting the job we called Juli. While sitting in a grocery store parking lot with Juli on speaker phone we “crunched the numbers.” Juli made sure we understood all of the expectations and boundaries for selling our house so soon. With that said, she agreed we simply could not pass up this opportunity. Juli not only had a contract on our house within 40 days, she also had the buyers closing within that window as well. Simply stated, we never had to make a mortgage payment for a house we did not live in! All because Juli did her homework and took good care of us from the beginning. Even though we now live out of state. "

"Juli sold our house when no one else could! We sold an unusual type house on the river. It had been on the market a little over a year and we were getting desperate, so I researched top selling realtors in the area and Juli's name came up. From the beginning Juli had a no holds barred approach. Sensing our discontent, she moved quickly, advised us what needed to be done and put marketing strategies in place. Our house sold in six months."

"Working with Juli was an awesome and comforting experience from beginning to end. She went above and beyond to assist us in finding our dream home based on our needs and desires. Juli not only was available to show us properties in person, she was also accessible by email and telephone to answer any and all questions we had about the home buying process. Juli only showed us properties that fit our criteria and never attempted to convince us to look at home that we were not interested in. Once we made an offer on a home, Juli worked tirelessly to advocate for and negotiate the terms of our contract. My husband and I truly feel that we that the home we purchased is not only our dream home, but a smart investment. We would highly recommend Juli to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home. I know that when it is time to sell our home, Juli will be our first phone call. "
