Our Mission

WoMen in Relocation provides a forum for all relocation professionals to network, strategic and develop public awareness campaigns to support individuals in small communities in need of housing assistance. This collaborative group was founded with the hope of building and encouraging relationships to support our nation’s housing needs – one small community at a time.  To be a member-in-good-standing all we ask is that you donate to the group we choose to support each year.


The group we chose to support this year, Furniture Sharehouse, has a great event coming up.  Kate Bialo, Founder of Furniture Sharehouse, has just let me know the details.  “Home for the Holidays Gala” is on Friday, November 2, 2018 and they will be honoring Kate!  It will be at the Renaissance Hotel in West Harrison, NY and here is the link the purchase a ticket, ($185)

Suzanne Lail joined Cottingham Chalk Hayes in Charlotte, North Carolina in January 2001 as Marketing Director.  After serving the firm in a variety of management roles, she transitioned to the Relocation Department in 2011 and was appointed Director in 2014.   She quickly developed a passion for the relocation industry recognizing opportunities not only for personal career growth, but more importantly for developing relationships with other relocation professionals from around the country while helping individuals and families relocate.

As Relocation Director her responsibilities include managing all corporate and third-party business and broker-to-broker referrals while looking for opportunities to develop new corporate business opportunities for the company.  Suzanne is a member of Worldwide Employee Relocation Council (WERC), Relocation Director’s Council (RDC) and currently serves as President of Charlotte Metro Area Relocation Council (CMARC).   She is also an active member of the Charlotte Area Society for Human Resource Management (CASHRM) and the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce.

“Relocation is the perfect industry for anyone who has a desire to serve.   When speaking with a transferee or relocating spouse, I try to place myself in their shoes and listen to their excitement and fears.   I keep a verse taped to my computer screen which reminds me to live a life worth of the calling I have received; and to be gentle and patient.  While these individuals and families obviously require real estate assistance, sometimes they also need someone who will listen to their concerns and fears about moving to a new location.”

Suzanne lives in Charlotte with her husband of 34 years, Philip Lail.  They have two grown daughters and two handsome sons-in-law.  Phil and Suzanne serve on several committees at their church where they are actively involved with adults with special needs.   While they have no grandchildren yet, Suzanne and Phil often “babysit” for their two grand dogs, Thor and Hazel.
