Not a Regular Real Estate Agency
We had the opportunity to meet with Susanna Grubb from the Ultimate Florida Real Estate in Jupiter. Susanna has many years of experience working as a real estate agent. Last year, she decided to make a major change in her life. She decided to do what many people dream of doing – start her own company. One year later, the company has expanded to three employees.
Ultimate Florida Real Estate is not a regular brokers agency. The company sells more than houses – they sell a lifestyle. If it’s the boat life, the golf life, or simply the beach life you want – then Ultimate Florida Real Estate can assist.
Since Susanna holds a master’s degree in Technical Communication, she can successfully combine the best of both worlds to expand her company. In addition to selling a lifestyle, the Ultimate Florida Real Estate differentiates in the way they hold an open house. When buying through the Ultimate Florida Real Estate, you don’t necessarily need to physically be in the house in order to see it. Through Matterport 3D (a new technology), you can virtually ”walk” around in the house in front of your computer screen. Especially foreigners appreciate this technology. The Ultimate Florida Real Estate offer all their customers selling their properties a Matterport 3D Tour, regardless of the price range.
Susanna believes voice search is the next big thing. Voice search is talking to your digital devices instead of writing. Therefore, it’s important to make sure your company comes as an alternative up when someone asks for companies in the industry. Because of her use of new technology, Susanna Grubb is truly a broker of the future.
Susanna has been through quite the journey in the past year! However, she says that building a brand and website is difficult and time-consuming. You must be willing to give those extra hours.
We would like to thank Susanna Grubb for giving us the insights of a broker in South Florida.

Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in Fort Lauderdale & Palm Beach (SACC-SFL) had a talk with new Trust Member Susanna Grubb to chat about her new company Ultimate Florida Real Estate and what to think about when selling or buying.
You recently started ”Ultimate Florida Real Estate”, tell me about it! Yes, I did! I’m very excited about what 2019 has to offer. I was a Florida real estate agent for various companies in Jupiter and Palm Beach for 12 years. I tried mom-and-pop brokerages and global realty brands. As an agent, you pay a portion of your commission to a broker. As I was generating 100% of my leads, I saw less and less value in what the brokers had to offer me. It was time to venture out on my own. In 2018 I was focused on creating and establishing my brand and in 2019 I’ll start hiring.
What are your biggest strengths you think?
I already have an existing buyer and seller client base, referral network and presence across social media and about 50% of my clients are Swedish. Many companies market themselves as both “local” and “global”, but I truly represent that. I have lived, worked and raised a family in Palm Beach County since 2003 so I have a lot of local knowledge for people relocating here. My biggest strengths are my higher education, vast travel experiences and respect for people from all socioeconomic backgrounds. My graduate thesis was about “schema theory”. I have a passion for SEO and that will take me to the next level.
I also know you have a masters degree in Technical Communication, how did you get in to the real estate business?
Yes, I do. When I graduated I was 7 months pregnant and had an 18 month old toddler. I also moved a week later from high-tech Seattle to old-world Normandy. I consulted in webdesign for a while. When we moved to Florida, I got attracted to real estate because of the flexible work hours. I managed my husband’s triplex in Newport RI 1992-1999 so I had handled many contracts before but as a landlord.
How is the real estate market in South Florida right now? Is it a good time for selling?
We have a great market right now – for both buyers and sellers. As more people can work remotely, we have much younger buyers moving to Florida than in the past. The market is more year-around and less seasonal. Homes in low crime areas with good schools, golf courses and medical facilities as well as beach condos and waterfront homes are hot. Look at comps sold in the past 90 days. What the seller paid is irrelevant. Realistic pricing is key!
For everyone that will sell or buy real estate, do you have some good advice?
When selling a home:
– Maximize your square footage under air. Get quotes for possible improvements and ask an experienced agent how this would effect the selling price.
– Unclutter the entire home or condo. Neutralize it so it appeals to as many potential buyers as possible.
– Ask your listing agent to hire the best photographer they know and get drone shots immediately (not as an add-on).
When buying a home:
– Request the price per square foot for the most similar active, sold and pending comps. This will show you the true value.
– Ask about pending or upcoming assessments for the condo or community. Get all financials during due diligence period.
– Find out the pet, vehicle and rental restrictions. Towns are following up on Airbnb rentals and few of them meet the HOA rules.

"Susanna helped us research Jupiter waterfront land, non-waterfront land, new homes and existing homes. Susanna was a true professional and the end result was the perfect home that meets all of our needs."
~ Pamela W, Abacoa Jupiter New Construction Buyer
"Susanna is highly recommended for her exceptional service in assisting us to locate a retirement home in Florida. She was very flexible with our schedule and always responded promptly by emails, texts, and phone calls. To locate, assess, recommend and view prospective homes, she utilized technology well. We appreciate greatly her professionalism, friendliness, honesty, and knowledge of the market in Palm Beach county."
~ Delmarie F , PGA National Resort Palm Beach Gardens Buyer
"Since it was our first real estate deal in America, Susanna had to do a lot of explaining about the buying process, negotiations, the real estate market and all the pitfalls we could fall into, as well as what is needed to own a house in Florida. She was very attentive to our needs and had answers to all our questions. The more we learned during the process, the more we realized how little we had known from the beginning, when we decided to buy a house in Florida, but at the same time we became more confident of what we wanted and we are very satisfied with the house we finally bought, very much thanks to Susanna."
~ Henric S, International Buyer, Waterfront Home, Port St Lucie
"Susanna is an exceptionally professional agent, and we were confident right from the beginning that we had found the right person for our search. She is knowledgeable, timely, organized, and businesslike, while at the same time very warm and friendly. As out of staters, she helped us navigate the purchase process, and now, even months after the closing, she will respond within a few hours to any questions we email her."
~ Ellen D, Singer Island Beach Condo Buyer

KÖPA HUS I FLORIDA?
Vill ni köpa hus i Florida? Sälja fastighet i Florida? Jag har bott i USA 27 år o köpte mitt första hus 1992. Jag äger egen svensk fastighetsbyrå i Florida. Som svensk fastighetsmäklare representerar jag köpare o säljare mellan Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Jupiter, Stuart och Port Saint Lucie. Jag kan även rekommendera erfarna mäklare på andra orter i Florida och USA. När ni väljer en mäklare kom ihåg att det är jätteviktigt att ha en erfaren mäklare.
KÖPA LÄGENHET I FLORIDA?
Palm Beach är näst största kommunen i Florida – del av “South Florida” och “Gold Coast” liksom Broward och Dade kommun. Endast Monroe är större med 87% i Everglades… Namnet “guldkusten” tillkom pga de många rika och flotta besökare som präglar Palm Beach under vintern. Vädret är rätt likt inom regionen men Palm Beach är inte lika fuktigt speciellt under sommaren. Det är lite kriminalitet i norra Palm Beach kommun – North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Juno Beach, Jupiter, Jupiter Inlet Colony och Tequesta. De närmsta flygplatserna ligger i West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami och Orlando. Norr om Guldkusten ligger “Treasure Coast” – “skattkusten” med Stuart som huvudstad. Området var uppkallat efter de 11 spanska skepp med skatter, guld och silver ombord som sjönk 1715 – ett lockbete för dykare… Jag kan hjälpa er hitta fastigheter till salu i hela Florida och rekommendera erfarna mäklare på andra orter i Florida. Börja sökningen här.
Många spelar golf, tennis, cyklar, åker rollerblades, joggar, sportfiskar, dyker, paddlar kajak, paddlar SUP, vågsurfar, vindsurfar och kitesurfar. Andra kommer hit för att se hästpolo och hästuppvisningar i Wellington eller motorsport på Moroso Motor Park. Trakten är väldigt populär bland sportfiskare, båtägare och dykare. Stuart, Jupiter och Palm Beach är våra inlopp till havet. Befolkningen är i alla åldrar från barnfamiljer till pensionärer – en härlig blandning av lyx, sport och avslappning.
NÄR ÄR DET HÖGSÄSONG I FLORIDA?
Florida är extra populärt under vår högsäsong som är mellan 1:a november – 30:e april. Trots många lägenheter, radhus och villor på hyresmarknaden så blir nästan allting uthyrt de månaderna. Det är ett bra område att äga en möblerad fastighet för att hyra ut kortsiktigt eller omöblerad under året. Under säsongen är hyrorna ofta 50-150% mer än årshyran, t.ex. en lägenhet som hyrs for $2,000/månad under året kan få in $3,000-6,000/månad och ibland ännu mer. Prisskillnaden varierar beroende på byggnad, område, utbud och efterfrågan. Hyresgäster som hyr mindre an 6 månader måste betala 12% (beroende pa kommunen) hotellskatt utöver hyran.
