Podley Properties Welcomes Sarah Zarcone

Sarah Zarcone - Announcement

 

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.

Agents Make a Difference at the State Capitol

Leg Day - Main 2

 

May 2nd, 2018
Podley associates Todd Hays, Margaret Garemore, Nick Frias, along with President Crystal Narramore, joined 2,000 Realtors® at the C.A.R.’s
46th Annual Leg Day in Sacramento. This year, agents were advocating for proactive solutions to the housing affordability crisis. After a meeting where Governor Jerry Brown spoke, the Realtors marched over to the State capitol. There, they met with elected officials, including Senator Anthony Portantino and Assemblyman Chris Holden. 

 

Leg Day - Todd

Todd Hays currently serves as a Director for the C.A.R., and is a representative on the Local Government Forum and the Legislative Committee. This is his sixth time attending Legislative Day. “It’s truly one of the most fulfilling things I do as a Realtor,” Todd said. “It shows, in a most powerful way, the impact each of us can make at the state level.”

 

Crystal Narramore, Podley Properties President and C.A.R. director also attended Leg Day and is highly active in the real estate community, most recently as a featured panelist with WomenUP! at the recent REVive! conferece. “C.A.R. is a powerful voice in Sacramento due to the participation and involvement of Realtors across the State.  Legislative Day has been an eye-opening experience for me to see the positive impact and influence C.A.R. has on the policies that affect our industry.”

Leg Day - Margaret & Nick

Margaret Garemore attended Leg Day to help advocate for potential home-buyers and owners. “As the AAR 2018 President and a CAR Director, I was honored to be among so many Realtors who were willing to step up in the fight for home ownership and private property rights at Legislative Day at the state Capitol.”

 

This is the first year attending Leg Day for 2017 C.A.R. Rising Star, Nick Frias. “Attending the conference and marching to the Capitol was an eye-opening experience. It was exciting to see Realtors involved in the political aspect of the business and not just selling homes, and it helped me to more fully understand the importance and power that we have as agents.”

 

For the past 46 years, Legislative Day remains C.A.R.’s pinnacle legislative event.  It gives California Realtors the opportunity to discuss real estate issues directly with their state legislators. Attending Legislative Day is not only a great investment an in agent’s business. It also provides the agents with an opportunity to hear from California’s political leaders and their state association’s leadership.

Design, Architecture & Art: Agents Get Involved at the Pasadena Showcase House

Pasadena Showcase House - Diane Hatfield

Diane Hatfield first joined the Pasadena Showcase House of the Arts (PSHA) benefit community in 2012 after visiting the Showcase House with family and friends as an annual tradition for many years, and volunteering as a docent in 2011. “I fell in love with the aspect of being involved from beginning to end. As a Realtor®, I felt this was a great way to network, give back to the community and support the various music programs that the philanthropy contributes to.” Diane served as the Tickets Co-chair for this year.

 

Pasadena Showcase House - Jan Wiles Pasadena Showcase House - Music Mobile

Jan Wiles volunteers with the PSHA’s Music Mobile program, just one of the many services the PSHA provides. She assists instructors from the Pasadena Conservatory of Music in introducing third grades to the sound of orchestra. The students also have the opportunity to touch and play those instruments..It’s so rewarding to see the excitement on their faces when they make a sound on a tuba, or violin or drum. One little boy said to me after playing the violin, ‘Where would you get something like this?’ My heart melted!” Beyond the introductory information the students receive, the program serves to stimulate curiosity about music and encourage further exploration.

 

The Pasadena Showcase House of Design is one of the nation’s oldest premier design show houses, celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, and is on view now through May 20th. Visit pasadenashowcasehouse.org to purchase tickets and for viewing instructions.
