Susan Kim

Originally from Korea, Susan has been living in Santa Barbara since 1980.  Before moving to Santa Barbara, she lived in Hawaii, Guam and La Jolla.

Susan worked in the hotel industry for the Santa Barbara Biltmore, El Encanto Hotel and Fess Parker’s Hotel.  Her extensive experience in the customer service industry has really set the tone for her approach to everything she does, she is all about service. 

Susan took a job at Pitts & Bachmann, Realtors in the late 90’s as the Office Administrator and this is where she began her journey with Nancy Hamilton and subsequently with Michael Calcagno a few years later.  Her enthusiasm, her extensive knowledge of real estate and her love of helping people has made her the absolute best at what she does.  Her smile and winning personality is what draws you to her but her efficiency and her ability to make you feel “taken care of” is what will make her unforgettable.

Susan has two teenage daughters, Sasha and Natasha Gordon and is engaged to a local concrete contractor, Jonathan Kenney of KCI.

Susan loves everything having to do with Santa Barbara, real estate, people and the community.  She’d love to meet you and help you with just about anything, and what she can’t help you with, she will make sure to find someone who can, so stop by and meet her and her fabulous team members.

My husband and I received unparalleled service from the entire team at Calcagno & Hamilton. It being our first time selling a home, they guided us through the entire process. We always received prompt and thorough responses to our questions. Michael Calcagno personally came to view our home to ensure that our unique property was priced accurately and competitively. Dan and Kelly, the two associates we worked with, were extremely professional, knowledgeable, and personal. They took great care of our home during the open houses, including our pet cats. They were very accommodating of our infant daughter as well. Each service we received was orchestrated impeccably. We had an over-asking price offer within hours of the first open house, and other full-price offers within days. They supported us through the escrow process as well. We could not have been happier with our decision to use Calcagno & Hamilton as our agent.

When we moved from Oklahoma to California we enlisted the Calcagno & Hamilton team to help us navigate the process of buying a home here. They answered all of our questions promptly and professionally, and held our hands during the complicated process of buying a home sight unseen. My husband and I highly recommend their services! They are the very best!
