"We are very fortunate to have Susan as a member of the FIABCI-USA executive committee," said Maire Rosol, president FIABCI-USA, "because of her history of accomplishments in our industry and her commitment to the FIABCI world-wide organization over these years. We look forward to her even greater role with FIABCI-USA."
Ms. Greenfield brings a rich and diverse history of comprehensive real estate brokerage, marketing, branding and consulting services to her position – ranging from individuals and small businesses to multi–billion dollar international conglomerates.
