Susan Farquhar is now one of the country’s leading experts in investment property, and the journey that led her to Managing Director of Calla Property has been quite remarkable.

Luckily, Susan had property to sell to cope with the financial mess that was left behind. However, she felt there had to have been a better way to ‘get out of jail’ than liquidating her assets.
