Sue Bonzell

Referral Associate


Sue Bonzell joined Terra Firma Global Partners Sebastopol office in July of 2015. Sue’s natural spirit for hospitality means she knows how to provide just the right experience for each one of her different clients. Her sincere and down-to-earth nature was derived from her upbringing on a small Sebastopol apple farm. She raised lambs as a 4-H and FFA member and as an adult, spent nearly 15 years serving as an officer for the Active 20-30 Club where she was voted a Past Active Life Member. These leadership experiences have contributed to her direct communication style and how she gets things done with a high level of resourcefulness.

Sue has a Bachelor of Science degree in graphic design from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. This, coupled with her natural people skills, allowed her to run a successful design and marketing company for nearly 20 years. She and her folks also owned a small winery in Russian River Valley. Her varied experiences have allowed her to create an expansive network in Sonoma County that works to her advantage when selling properties. She is currently writing a book about respect and hopes to share that with the world in 2018.
