Sudi Swirles | Broker-In-Charge

Sudi is passionate about her work, her family and life in general, and brings enthusiasm to everything she does. Her success in real estate is based on two decades of building close personal relationships with her clients who trust her integrity and knowledge of the Durham/Chapel Hill market. Her expertise helps them make one of the most important decisions of their lives. One of Sudi’s great skills is negotiation — the “art of the deal”– which means working collaboratively and cordially, and reaching a successful conclusion for both sellers and buyers.

Sudi grew up with a southern mom on the north shore of Chicago, so she was right at home with the cuisine and culture of North Carolina. As a result of her love of fine food, wine, and travel, she became one of the pioneers of the restaurant revolution in downtown Durham when she owned and ran Sudi’s on Main Street in the 80’s. Sudi’s offered an eclectic menu of Mediterranean cuisine long before it was popular in this country.

Believing in the future of downtown since she relocated here in the 70’s, she bought a beautiful 1920’s house on Trinity Ave which she fully restored and still lives in today. She shares her life with her husband, Bruce, and “Rolf”, their rescue German Shepherd.

Whether old or new, homes with style and character are the properties that inspire her to create the best lifestyle opportunities for her clients. For over 20 years, Sudi knows that houses are homes, and that knowledge has kept loyal clients returning to her over and over again for all of their real estate needs.
