Susan Binkowski has been the CEO and founder of Esperanza Real Estate Investments, LLC, which means “Hope”, since 2004. Susan also leads Vision and Development together with husband and founder, Hank Binkowski, of their (14) Buy For Less/Uptown Grocery Co./Super Mercado stores in the Oklahoma City metro area. The Buy For Less Company just celebrated it’s 30th year in business.
Susan has spent the last 14 years in residential and multi-family real estate development, construction and interior design. She has built, sold, remodeled and developed over 100 properties in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Nichols Hills, Midwest City and Norman, Oklahoma areas.
In 2012, she expanded this expertise crossing over into commercial retail construction with the award-winning design, of Uptown Grocery Co. This store anchored a 120-acre development in Edmond, OK. This design became a flagship store for the Buy For Less Company, as well as a new ministry tool for community place-making. The two have since opened their second Uptown Grocery Co in 2016 and future sites are in process.
Susan, the youngest of six children, is a double PK (Preacher’s Kid). Susan has had the privilege to “Mother” 6 children. A celebration of those that came “through” her, and “to” her by blending a family in marriage as well as children added through fostering.
