Podley Properties Welcomes Marianna Valdivia

Marianna Valdivia

Having grown up in Glendora and graduating from Glendora High School, Marianna Valdivia is very familiar with Glendora and the surrounding areas. She has always had an interest in real estate, and for the last 10 years she has worked in escrow. This experience in escrow helps Marianna to have a deeper understanding of the buying and selling process than most agents.

She loves to help people, and takes great pride and pleasure in helping clients in selling their current home or finding and buying their dream home. Marianna knows how stressful the home buying process can be. She makes the extra effort to let her clients know that they can trust her, and to provide the easiest experience as possible every step of the way.

Marianna is married with three children; two boys, five and three, and a stepdaughter who is sixteen.

Podley Properties Welcomes Priscilla Nelson

Priscilla Nelson - Headshot

Priscilla Nelson grew up in Chino, California, where her father was a pastor at a local church serving the quaint community. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology from U.C. Riverside, she worked in cancer research at world-renowned City of Hope Medical Center in Duarte. She developed a love for real estate while living in beautiful Pasadena, California. The architectural significance of the homes and neighborhoods fueled her passion, and in 2011 she obtained her real estate license.

 

As a lifelong resident of the Inland Empire/San Gabriel Valley, Priscilla will use her insider knowledge to work to find a special property in your neighborhood of choice and utilize the latest marketing tools to expose your property to the widest possible range of qualified buyers.

 

Priscilla’s choice to partner with Podley Properties was an easy one to make. As a locally-based company, Podley Properties has a collaborative team that is knowledgeable enough to bring a supportive, personal experience to every transaction and established enough to be known for having an impeccable reputation and many years of experience in the communities it serves. Every transaction has the support of the company’s collective resources and expertise.

 

In her free time, Priscilla loves being with friends and family. She enjoys exploring new restaurants, seeing her favorite music artists perform, and participating in regional 5k/10K events.

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.

I have diverse knowledge in sales and investments for residential and commercial properties, benefiting buyers and sellers alike.

With my business acumen, I have learned how to assess a property’s untapped potential that makes the difference in negotiating the right deal for both buyers and sellers.

Being a proud homeowner in Pasadena, I came to appreciate the balance between historic and contemporary urban living. My clients describe me as an insightful, knowledgeable and results-oriented professional providing value. I do this by listening, being a resource and building long-term relationships.
