Nick Frias Receives the 2017 C.A.R. Rising Star Award

October 12, 2017
San Diego, CA
 .

Nick Frias received the C.A.R. (California Association of Realtors®) 2017 Rising Star award at the 2017 Broker Conference in San Diego. The Broker Conference is the kick-off to the CALIFORNIA REALTOR® EXPO, where thousands of industry professionals convene under one roof for three days of networking, learning, sharing ideas, and meeting 200+ exhibitors. The day ended with a cocktail reception. 

 .

 Nick Frias
 .

Nick has been an excellent example of a new agent that has jumped in full force. He knows what needs to be done and has done an outstanding job of connecting in the office. He attends all sales and training meetings regularly, and shows up to the office every day! Nick collaborates and engages with experienced associates in the office. In addition to representing numerous buyers and sellers, he also had an out-of-state referral through our Relocation Services department and membership in LeadingRE® that earned Nick $3,261.60. He has a wonderful personality and is a joy to have in the office.”
 

– Ed Afsharian, Pasadena Office Manager

“Nick understands the importance of filling his pipeline. His eye is always on the horizon looking for new ways to connect with people. Nick has a strong work ethic, and we are proud of our association with him.” 
 

– Crystal Narramore, President of Podley Properties

Vote for the Podley Scarecrow | Sierra Madre Scarecrow Festival

Podley Scarecrow

 

The Story of “Bill Podley and the Podley People”

 

“Once upon a time, back in 1956, a movie called Invasion of the Body Snatchers was filmed in Sierra Madre. It tells the story of alien plant spores that have fallen from space and grown into large seed pods. These pods make reproductions of the inhabitants of the town and take over their minds and bodies. They are like robots with no feelings.

However, there was one rogue pod accidently left by the invaders that developed into a wonderful man named Bill Podley. This pod is very kind and nice and he really wanted to become an important part of Sierra Madre. So, he opened a Real Estate company and called it Podley Properties and all of his agents are called Podley People. The Podley People sell Pads (homes), not Pods, to all of the good people of Sierra Madre. And they all live happily ever after.”

1771 Devon Road Living Room

.
Overlooking the Arroyo Seco, this three-bedroom Pasadena house offers awesome views of the arroyo and beyond.

The main living room and dining area are one big open space, with floor to ceiling windows, skylights, and a vintage fireplace with an unusual circular opening. Elsewhere in the house, there’s another vintage touch: “a hip, 1950’s stereophonic turntable waiting to be restored.”

The remodeled kitchen offers plenty of counter space and new quartz counter tops. The newly renovated master bedroom has a prime location in the house, looking out toward the pool and the patio. A corner of windows afford the room a view of trees and hillsides.

There’s also a pool, reachable by a curving staircase that runs down to the area from the upper landscaped backyard.

 

The property is listed for $1.59 million.

Sandra Siraganian Joins Podley Properties’ Sierra Madre Office

Sandra Siraganian

Sandra knows she has connected with a client when they trust her to show them properties that really fit their needs, not just every new home on the market. She strongly feels a big part of her job is to help clients crystallize their needs. She invests the time up front to really listen to and understand their circumstances, then she can provide the kind of service she pledges to her clients.

Armed with knowledge, energy and a sense of humor, Sandra has helped clients buy and sell homes since 1986. Her previous experience was in the demanding commercial lending industry. She is intuitive and sensitive to others, but a tough businesswoman; a problem solver always striving for a win-win solution.

Sandra advises clients to buy in the best location possible within their needs and finances. She takes her representation duties very seriously, as evidenced by an extraordinarily high customer referral rate from her buyers and sellers. She prides herself on facilitating the process of her clients coming to their own right decisions. Sandra’s commitment to each sale lasts far beyond that one transaction; she feels the key to her clients’ satisfaction is that they see she absolutely knows the market, her areas and inventory, and will continue to be there for them after the sale.
