Pam Franklin participated in the 27th Annual “America’s Most Beautiful Bike Ride – Lake Tahoe,” a charity cycling event for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS). The awe-inspiring ride was a 100-mile ring around Lake Tahoe, through California and Nevada, with spectacular scenery, clean mountain air, great food and more.
Pam trained several months for this event with an organization called Team in Training, a national fundraising arm of LLS. With her hard work and dedicated efforts, she was able to raise $5,130, nearly twice her stated goal. And, as a group, Team in Training raised over $4,000,000!
These donations will help fund treatments that save lives every day. These include immunotherapy, which uses a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. We are extremely proud of Pam for her tireless efforts in support of this life-saving work.
“Thanks to all the wonderful, generous Podley agents and staff who supported my effort!” – Pam

Coaching has always been something that Robb Buzzini has gravitated towards. He applies his great coaching skills to his business, coaching and guiding his clients through their real estate transactions.
Following high school, Robb served as an Assistant Coach for his high school in Santa Rosa. He also coached a basketball team for the Boys and Girls Club for ages 15-18. After moving to Pasadena in 2010, Robb served as Head Coach of the JV baseball team at St. John Bosco School in Bellflower.
This past year Robb has coached 4 youth teams that his children, Avery (8) & Jack (5) play on: 6U Soccer for AYSO Region 13, Kinder Co-Ed, first & second grade girls for Upward Basketball in Pasadena and Tee-Ball for Central Altadena Little League.
“I always look for ways our teams can be better” says Robb. “Whether that was strategy or simply knowing the rules, I wanted everyone on my team to be prepared.” Robb remembers what his Little League coach told him at 11 years old. That he was an extension of him on the field, earning him the nickname “Coach.” He was prouder of that than any on the field accomplishment. It is something Robb still applies to his life today.
For Robb, the thrill of helping a child get their first hit, make a basket, or score a goal matches the thrill of helping a first time home buyer or seller achieve their goals.

Sarah Zarcone has lived her entire life under the warm California sun. An alum of UCSB (Go Gauchos!), she earned her bachelor’s degree with a double major in Law & Society and Communication. She then achieved an MBA from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, before beginning a career in Film and Video Production.
Film and Video Production has many similarities to real estate. Both take place in fast paced environments with lots of moving pieces, a multitude of personalities, negotiations, contracts and details galore. It involves planning to get the job done well & on-time, problem solving when unexpected changes occur and keeping everything within budget. Sarah loved everything about it. However, she craved a deeper connection with clients and wanted to make a greater impact on their lives. She decided to take her education, background and skills and focus it on a seamless transition into real estate.
Sarah loves working with clients on important life decisions in real estate. She knows that the process of buying or selling a home can be overwhelming and confusing without the right person navigating. Sarah’s education, coupled with her experience and desire to build relationships and help others, make her an ideal fit to guide clients through the process of a real estate transaction. Sarah prides herself on being organized, friendly and approachable, along with her excellent communication skills. She values openness, honesty and, above all else, relationships with others.
Sarah lives in Upland with her wonderful husband, Dave, and their little old dog, Paco.
