Sandy Spring approaches her career in real estate the same way as she approaches life.

That is why no career has suited her better than her nearly two decades working as a real estate professional. She brings a unique set of skills to her real estate practice. Prior to real estate Sandy spent over a decade in the corporate environment where among other things she managed the integration of companies following mergers and acquisitions. There she fine-tuned her negotiating skills and employed innovative marketing strategies to sell even the most difficult situations. From experience Sandy knows how important it is to communicate with clients throughout the process; her service expands beyond simply facilitating a transaction. She listens, educates, advises and negotiates. Leveraging the skills she's honed over her career.
Sandy takes great pleasure in discovering and bringing to life all the things that make a property unique and she takes great pride in using her considerable experience, resources, and connections to perfectly unite these special places with those who will cherish them.
She believes in enjoying the journey, not just the destination. Her love of adventure has led her to travel and has given her incredible experiences to learn from. Though she has traveled the world, she is always happy to come home to her favorite place, her farm in Sonoma County. The best way she describes this dynamic and beautiful area is that it is not just a lifestyle living in Sonoma County, but a state of mind.
Sandy recently helped my husband and me relocate to Petaluma after we'd sold our home in Oakland. We wanted to downsize and loved the area but needed advice on which neighborhoods to focus our search on. Right from the start, Sandy took the time to truly understand the kind of lifestyle we want to lead. She asked thought-provoking questions, pointed out myriad details we likely would have missed as we looked at different properties together and shared her own experience making a similar move. She really helped us flesh out what we wanted in a new home and then found us one that checked all our most important boxes. Once in escrow, Sandy navigated us...— Julie V.
My family and I worked with Sandy to relocate from the East Bay and purchase a home in Sonoma, and we could not be happier! She is truly a wonderful person and a joy to work with. She made the entire process a positive experience. She went out of her way to make sure that we got answers to every question throughout the sale and has continued to be a resource connecting us to the Sonoma community. She knows the North Bay area well and has a great ability to really understand what the client needs and match that with the perfect house! We found that here in Sonoma and are forever grateful for Sandy!— Christine T.
Our successful adventure owning a home began and ended with the help of Sandy Spring. Her expertise, patience, and relationships with competent vendors saved us from the downward spiral of despair we found ourselves in when we tried to navigate it all on our own. Seven years later we decided to take a leap and head off on a new adventure. Sandy helped us build and prioritize a list of tasks we needed to accomplish. Throughout the entire process she made us feel like we were her only client, such was her attention and focus on our success. We accepted an offer the day we were scheduled to leave the country. Sandy rushed the offer over to us, thorough...— Chris O.
We had the pleasure of working with Sandy twice over the last five years—once when buying our first home and once when selling that same home. When we decided to sell our house four years later, Sandy walked through the entire property and made suggestions on improvements that we could make to bring more value to the property. She used her extensive industry connections to book us a top-rate staging company and a wonderful painter. We weren’t always able to meet with Sandy face-to-face due to our busy schedules and she was fantastic at keeping us up-to-date about prospective buyers and the results from the various open houses that she held. Sandy wa...— Lindsey P.
Sandy is wonderful! I have been looking for a home on and off for over ten years. She spent several hours with me visiting different areas in Sonoma to get a sense of what I was really looking for. After just a few weeks of looking in an extremely tough market… we found the perfect home for me. Sandy made sure the purchase went smoothly and followed up with me after the purchase to make sure I was happy. She also went way beyond, researching restaurants for good food and fun places for me to explore for my new home and garden. Sandy is that friend who looks out for you, stays calm, and sticks with you. Thank you, Sandy.— Dale P.
We worked with Sandy to buy our first home… We were referred to Sandy through a few mutual friends who had worked with her to buy and sell their homes. Being our first purchase, there was a lot we had to learn and a lot we didn't know we had to learn. We started without being certain on East or North Bay. Sandy brought both her own expertise and partners in areas she was less familiar. She helped educate us on local ordinances and laws as well as what to look out for. When we moved our search to other parts of the Bay Sandy helped us to navigate new towns. She was always knowledgeable, balanced and available to us. And very patient as we toured many...— Kristianne M.
Sandy was a fantastic agent for our home purchase. She helped us navigate the Petaluma market and find the perfect home. The market was tough but we found a great spot and couldn't have been happier with all she did for us. We especially appreciate the ongoing relationship she's maintained with our family.— Ben C.
Thank you so much for helping my wife and I with the purchase of our townhome in Sonoma. We found you to be honest, trustworthy, diligent, and an excellent communicator. And, I should know. I was in the real estate business for over 38 years. Many of my years in the real estate business were in management for a large real estate company. Based upon my experience you are among the best of the best the industry has to offer. You are truly a professional and we would have no hesitation using your services again going forward.— Pat M.
Sandy is an absolute star! I am always thrilled to send clients, friends and family her way because I know she will take the utmost care of them, whether they are buying or selling. Incredibly knowledgeable, warm and thoughtful, she really goes the extra mile for her all of her clients, no matter the price point. I know this because all of my referrals have circled back with me to let me know how impressed they are with her services! If you have clients looking to buy or sell in Sonoma County, you could not hope for a better realtor referral than Sandy.— Caitlin C.
Sandy made the buying process seamless with prompt communication, detailed guidance, and excellent market intelligence. Buying in an evolving market could have been a bewildering undertaking but she was a reliable and steadfast partner who made it seem easy. When we wanted to go fast she was right there beside us -- and often a step ahead -- ready and waiting. We couldn't have dreamed of a better agent.— Josh O.
Sandy made me feel informed and empowered to make the best decisions for my home’s sale. Her guidance through market conditions and home preparation made me feel confident my time and money were being spent wisely and I am very happy with the sale result. She was patient and thorough answering my questions, quick to make sure I was apprised of updates, and proactive to keep me engaged while there was nothing to do but wait. She made me feel like she was my partner in the process, not just a resource, and I greatly appreciate her help.— Chris H.
Sandy helped my husband and me find our first home. She is very knowledgeable, patient, available, level headed, and reassuring. She made the whole process, which can be intimidating, quite smooth. She walked us through the process, step by step, beginning with our first meeting, during which she helped us clarify our goals and learn both what was realistic and what to expect in the months ahead. Then, when our offer was accepted, Sandy helped us navigate through the offer, acceptance, and escrow steps. We wholeheartedly recommend her!— Heather J.
Sandy took the time to make sure we understood the contracts and the entire process of buying a house. We both learned so much about real estate by working with Sandy. We really appreciate how Sandy was able to set healthy boundaries with us and provide information without influencing our decision making. It was obvious that Sandy really had our best interest at heart and does her job for the love of helping people with their housing transitions.— Laura A.
I have very fond memories of working with you when we sold my mother-in-law's home. I felt I was in safe hands with you. Of course, you helped me price the house and understand what contingencies there might be. But you also helped me find experienced local people to help empty and clean her home. And you sat with me for hours as we did the estate sale. You were there in a very difficult time and made it go much more easily. The only time that I didn't listen to your suggestion is the only time I regret. Thank you Sandy!— Mary B.
