Suzee is a second generation Realtor, and an award winning real estate development director. Fred and Suzee Oberfelder add seasoning to luxury lifestyles and resort real estate investing. Specializing in equestrian, coastal and desert estates from sunny Palm Springs/Coachella Valley, to surfy, horsey San Juan Capistrano by the sea, Fred and Suzee enjoy being lifestyle ambassadors for their clients buying and selling homes, boasting the best in distinctive properties. Growing up, Fred lived in Sea Cliff, San Francisco, and Suzee connected dual-resort lifestyles with homes in both Newport Beach and Capistrano Valley.
The communities they are docents for offer authenticity and ways of life rich in history, storytelling and year-round outdoor adventure! They also network on a referral basis with their real estate colleagues in Truckee/Lake Tahoe, where they lived, played and worked for twenty years, becoming members of the Truckee Tahoe Sierra Board of Realtors, joining the tight knit real estate community for resort living in 2007. Their Tahoe story talks about water and snow skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, hiking, golfing, tennis, fly fishing, horsebackriding, swimming and dancing for the arts.

Suzee Grupe Oberfelder, learning from her top producing father George Grupe lll, a real estate agent/investor, WWll B-24 Bomber Pilot, and published California historian (amongst many other things), has been representing clients buying and selling upscale coastal estates and equestrian ranchettes, from Newport Beach to San Juan Capistrano, and Truckee/North Lake Tahoe, since 1970.

Fast forward, Suzee was recruited in 2013 as an accomplished licensed realtor to lead a national in-home selling, real estate development division for a Fortune 40 company. This assignment involved multiple corporate buy/sell relocation transactions that Suzee was director for. She was also responsible for leading homeowner installs and complex remodels for sellers preparing their homes for market, and buyers updating their new property investment.
Today, Fred and Suzee continue to grow the family real estate legacy, relishing a twofold life work balance between their own Palm Springs/Coachella Valley oasis, and a retreat in the horseshoe cradle, historic community of Capistrano Valley, nestled in rolling hills threaded with hiking, biking and riding trails.
Just recently, Suzee was recognized for exceeding all expectations as an award-winning In-home Selling, Residential Real Estate Development Director for a Fortune 40 company, directing her home improvement teams, in twenty five states, to help over 99,000 homeowners complete complex remodel projects, leading their clients through all stages consultation to completion, preparing their homes for market, retirement, aging in place, multi-generational living and investment appreciation.
