Sue Mills knew she’d have a career in real estate from a very young age. As one of six children, she quickly realized that the best way to spend time with her dad was to go with him on weekends when he was researching properties or hosting open houses. Sue vividly recalls trudging through the snow one day, directly behind her dad, saying to herself, “I’m going to follow in my Dad’s footsteps” and that she did!
After attending Wilfrid Laurier University in the Honours Bachelor of Business Administration program, Sue was hired by her Co-Op employer IBM, where she enjoyed the exposure to corporate sales and administration; however her heart was in the real estate industry, and since 1987 she has built her career and helped to build The Mills Team to what it is today – one of the most successful, respected and admired teams in Canada.
On a personal level, after being swept off her feet in an 11 day whirlwind courtship – while still in university – Sue married Jim Delsnyder. Given their spontaneity and their youth, there are many who would have doubted that over 32 years later Sue and Jim would both be enjoying successful careers (Jim is the President and CEO of ESKA Water) and the joys, trials and tribulations of raising three incredible kids. Sarah, their eldest, is currently teaching elementary school in the GTA, A.J (Alexander James) is attending Chiropractic College in Davenport Iowa, and Victoria is loving life at the University of Guelph.
In her spare time, Sue enjoys spending time reading a good book at their family cottage, golfing, travelling and delighting in the gourmet dinners prepared by Jim for their family and friends.
