Hello and thank you for finding my webpage!
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Susan Kwok Annoura. As you can see from my name, I have a very culturally diverse background. I was born and raised in the U.S. (Susan) but my parents are from Hong Kong (Kwok) and Taiwan (mom), and my husband is from Japan (Annoura). I am tri-lingual English, Mandarin, and Japanese. Through an exchange program with Baylor University, I spent my junior year abroad at Seinan Gakuin Daigaku, and upon graduation, I decided to move permanently to Fukuoka, Japan. While in Japan, I was a radio personality on Love FM for nine years, hosting several popular programs including the Top 40 Countdown. I married a professional athlete and after the birth of our second son, we decided to move back to the United States, to my hometown of Houston, TX.
I have always been an avid fan and practitioner of real estate investment. When we moved back to Houston, I decided to combine my knowledge of the city and its suburbs, my gift of gab (from working on the radio), my ability to speak other languages, and my passion of helping others, to pursue a career in real estate. I worked two years at the busiest real estate company in Chinatown, selling close to $10 million in residential and commercial real estate throughout Texas. With the growing number of Japanese companies bringing in new employees, I decided to get my broker's license and open my own brokerage in January 2010.
Fast forward to 2020, Annoura Realty Group celebrates our 10 year anniversary and has 8 licensed agents, five who speak fluent Japanese, one who speaks German, and one who speaks Mandarin. We specialize in serving international clients with their real estate needs in Houston- buying, selling, leasing, and apartment locating. We have also found a special niche working with local and international investors, helping them buy investments, find tenants, and property managing their assets. On the commercial side, I have helped clients buy free standing buildings and land throughout Houston, and in 2015, I was the tenant rep on a commercial transaction to bring SEIWA Market, a Japanese supermarket, to Houston. Currently, our family owns properties in Texas, Colorado, and Japan and our brokerage manages a portfolio of 85+ properties in Houston for our clients. Our listings are priced aggressively, marketed thoroughly, and sold quickly. The greatest satisfaction of my job is knowing that my clients are happy with my performance, that I have served them to the best of my ability, and that they can confidently refer my team to our next client.
PROFESSIONAL DESIGNATIONS & AFFILIATIONS
I continuously challenge myself to always be on the leading edge of technology and education and have obtained several designations recognized by the National Association of Realtors including GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyer's Representative), and CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist). I am also a certified SMP (Social Media Pro), MCNE (Master Certified Negotiation Expert), and recently obtained the highest commercial real estate designation, CCIM. In 2009, I was selected to participate in the intensive yearlong Texas Realtors Leadership Program alongside 21 other talented and successful Houston realtors. In 2010, I was awarded the Top 20 Under 40 Rising Stars in Real Estate Award. I currently serve on the Houston Association of Realtors International Advisory Group, and was the chairperson in 2018, the year HAR won the prestigious Diamond Award from the National Association of Realtors for outstanding international committees. In 2019, I was appointed to the Diversity Committee for the state level Texas Realtors. I am a founding board member for the Houston Chapter of the Asian Real Estate Association of America. Since 2012, I have been a volunteer for the prestigious International Committee for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, serving 3 years as the captain of photography. I was also the Japanese translator for BBQ Shogun, at the World BBQ Contest in Houston 2016-2019.
OTHER INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT ME
Both of my parents worked for NASA, so I grew up in the Clear Lake area of Houston. After graduating from Clear Lake High School, I attended Baylor University for my undergraduate studies, graduating Cum Laude with a B.A. Business degree and Certification in Asian Studies. While living in Fukuoka, I obtained my Masters of Education in Curriculum and Technology from Temple University Japan, and taught English communication at several Japanese universities and corporations. My husband, Koh, was a professional KEIRIN racer and at one point was on Japan's national cycling team. We have been married for 26 years and have three sons, Joe (16), Ty (14),and Zachary (7).
