Sue Odena is a long time resident of Central Florida and has been passionate about her community commitment. When she relocated to Daytona Beach three years ago, she could have slowed down and taken it easy. She had accomplished much by the time she decided she wanted to live within walking distance of the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean that she loves so dearly. But that wouldn’t be the Sue Odena that we know and love.
Instead of letting up, this founding member of CFCAR quickly committed herself to making Volusia County a better place to live while continuing to serve clients across all of Central Florida. Sue jumped into learning more about her community by volunteering with the Volusia County Sheriff Office, The Affordable Housing Advisor Committee for Volusia County and Daytona Beach as well as other affordable housing initiatives; a 17-year veteran of a leading caregiver support organization helping those with dementia live a better live. She spearheaded a Women of CCIM Event in and on Daytona Beach that included a hard hat tour of the then under-renovation Hard Rock Hotel.
She passionately devotes herself toward her causes; her clients; her professional community; her church; and always toward her family. She gives back to CFCAR, to CCIM, to her community and to her associates at Black Pearl Real Estate.
