Sanford Wallerstein began his real estate career in Los Angeles (Hollywood, Westwood, Beverly Hills) in 1973. Two years after receiving his Salesman’s license, Sanford earned his California Brokers License and became a Partner/Owner/Broker of Star Real Estate Company, with two offices. One office on Sunset Blvd in West Hollywood and the other in Westwood near U.C.L.A.
These offices specialized primarily in Residential Income property (Apartments), and other Commercial Income Properties, and Fine Homes.
By 1980, Sanford’s family grew to 3 children, which was the motivating force in his decision to sell his interest in Star Real Estate Company and move his Family to Sonoma County (Sebastopol). Working in Santa Rosa, for the next almost 2 decades, Sanford was a consistent top producer, and the ‘go to guy’ for his specialty, Residential Income Producing Properties in Sonoma County and adjacent areas.
Sanford would say his primary job was listening to his clients: their desires, sensitivities, and goals. And then taking professional, expertise directed action, for the benefit of his clients, to accomplish their needs and goals. “I take being an effective Advocate for my clients very seriously.”
In 2000, with his Mother suffering with Alzheimer’s disease, Sanford moved back down to the Los Angeles area to help care for her while he worked. Sanford joined the Commercial division of Coldwell Banker Vista Realty in Valencia (Santa Clarita), Ca. Sanford was the top producing Agent/Broker in his division, receiving the ‘International Diamond Society Award for Production Achieved.’
In early 2005, Sanford opened his own ’boutique,’ investment property brokerage, named Ventura Investment Properties (VIP), in Ventura, Ca. The company did excellent business in apartments, commercial strip centers, and developmental land. Several years later, after the passing of his Mother, Sanford decided to move back to the location he loved, the Marin/Sonoma area.
Before joining the Commercial Division of Bradley Real Estate, Sanford was the Broker/Owner of Northbay Investment Properties, located in Sausalito, where he also calls home. Sanford is an accomplished Photographer.
A book of several decades of his images, from many parts of the world, was published in 2010. Allow Sanford to be of benefit to your real estate needs.
