About US

Susie Iden established US Approvals in 1988, founded on several years of experience in the homebuilding industry.  Susie’s expertise is based on a solid understanding of the diverse professional services which are requisite for the residential developer to successfully merchandise a project.  At US approvals, Susie’s paramount goal is to provide project approval and liaison services for the developer according to the individual needs of each client.

Prior to forming US Approvals, Susie was corporate Vice President of a consulting firm, where she directed, managed and promoted project approval application services, for the developer and/or lender to obtain the Master Appraisals from FHA and VA, and obtain project approval from Fannie Mae® and Freddie Mac®.

For eight years prior, Susie served as Vice President of Builder Services for Stewart Title & Trust of Phoenix, Inc., where she established and directed a highly successful service for residential and commercial developers, specializing in application processing for the developer to obtain subdivision approval from the Arizona Department of Real Estate (DRE).

Previous experience includes five years as manager of the New Arizona Department for The Arizona Bank, where record new deposits were achieved in the first year of this venture.  Susie also holds an Arizona Real Estate Sales License, and was a new home sales consultant in the Phoenix area for a major, national homebuilder, where she received awards for top sales and closing production.

Susie is well known and received in the real estate community for her commitment to her clients and dedication to the highest level of professional practices, standards and ethics.  She is a past member and past chairperson of the FHA/VA Liaison Committee for the Central Arizona Home Builders Association, as well as a past member of the FHA/VA Liaison Committee for the Arizona Mortgage Bankers Association.  She has contributed her professional and personal time and energy to several other organizations including the Womens’ Council of Realtors, the Arizona Multi-Housing Association and the Board of Trustees of the Maricopa County Mental Health Association.

An Arizona Licensed Real Estate Broker, in 1974, Scott obtained his Arizona Real Estate Salesman license and worked in the real estate offices of Ed Thirkhill Realty, Russ Lyon Realty, Lyon Commercial and Realty Executives Commercial.  While at Lyon Commercial, Scott obtained his Arizona Real Estate Broker’s License in 1986.  In 1988, Scott joined Realty Executives Commercial, and later formed US Brokers Commercial Real Estate in 1990.  Although his broker’s license is maintained in an active status, Scott no longer sells real estate.
