As a Los Angeles native, Sandy understands the intricacies of the local real estate market.

Following high school, Sandy earned his BA in Business Economics from UCLA.  When asked about his time at the historic university, Sandy said “I have very fond memories of my undergraduate years at UCLA. I lived on Campus in the Sigma Nu Fraternity and enjoyed the daily stroll along the majestic Bruin Walk to my classes in North Campus. I majored in Business Economics and the many finance and accounting classes have assisted me in the Mortgage Finance field.”

Of course, his time at the storied campus wasn’t all about work, however.  Sandy readily admits “Of course, for game parties we would go to the “10th Inning” on Westwood Blvd.  For late night burgers, Fatburger was our burger of choice. Double King Egg Chili Cheese!”  Sandy said “I have very fond memories of my undergraduate years at UCLA.

Following college, Sandy worked in downtown Los Angeles and rode the “Big Blue” Santa Monica Bus to his sales job at IBM. He can’t help but smile when recalling one of his favorite moments during his tenure at IBM, “I sold a huge order of IBM Mainframes, Disk Drives, Tape Drives, Communication Equipment and Printers and drove down the 10 Freeway west to our IBM office with the order.  Like Tom Cruise in the movie, Jerry Maguire, I was singing “Free Falling” at the top of my lungs all the way down the freeway with the sun roof open.”
