She and her business partner, Diane Onken, have sold more than 150 properties including single-family homes, multi-unit buildings and condos from Sea Cliff to North Beach and beyond. In one community alone near St. Francis Wood, they have sold 29 homes. Neighbors choose to work with the Onken Team after they see firsthand the comprehensive marketing programs, professionalism and success Sandy and Diane bring.

Out-of-town sellers have entrusted Sandy with all aspects of the sale: preparing the house, managing contractors and home improvements, ensuring beautiful staging, marketing the property, evaluating offers and negotiating the best possible deal. Charlene Chan, Director of Communications for Hawaii Tourism Authority, and her husband hired Sandy and Diane to sell their home from afar. “We lived in another state, so it was important that we had eyes and ears on the ground with someone we could trust,” Charlene says. “The Onken Team fit the profile. They suggested strategy, gave us options on the contractors to prepare the home, met the contractors at the home to insure work was done correctly and within budget, staged the home on budget and perfectly conducted the open house in person. They go over and above what’s expected.”

Representing clients on either side of the Golden Gate Bridge gives Sandy a broader perspective on local real estate trends and helps her see what’s coming next in this dynamic market.

Sandy earned her undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley and her MBA with honors from the University of San Francisco. Sandy’s strengths include listening carefully to her client’s needs, finding creative market solutions and working passionately to meet objectives. Sandy says, “It means a lot to me to help sellers get the maximum benefit of their investments, and I love seeing my buyer clients find their dream home.”
