Susan Overton is from an old California family who have lived in Monterey since California was part of Mexico. She lived at Tassajara Hot Springs in Carmel Valley, and Green Gulch Farm in Marin, before arriving in Berkeley in 1976 which she found to be an ideal urban environment. She moved to San Francisco to train as a pattern maker in the garment industry and establish herself there and then back to Berkeley in 1983 to raise a family. She continued to work in the garment industry until 2001, when after eight years at Gap headquarters, she wanted to work closer to her teenage children.
Susan is married to Peter Overton, an MAI at Yovino-Young, Inc. She was fortunate to have the opportunity to join the residential department at Yovino-Young, Inc., training directly under Alison Teeman, where she was exposed to a wide range of appraisal challenges. Susan continues to enjoy the varied challenges presented by the diverse residential properties in the Bay Area and is embracing “Green Construction” concepts with enthusiasm.
