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.

Sierra Madre Craftsman Bungalow with Pleasant Yard Seeks $1.5M

310Sunnyside-2

.
This sweet Craftsman in Sierra Madre is just lovely. The house, built in 1921, is clad in redwood exterior siding and has an oversized front door. And, inside, there is a lot more glorious wood: white oak floors, wainscoting of mahogany, fir and redwood. French doors and casement windows abound.

The house’s three bedrooms are spacious and bright, and the bathrooms all feature vintage-looking tilework.

Saltillo tiles cover the floor of the dining room, which over looks the spacious rear yard. The house sits on a nearly 11,000-square-foot lot that includes a spa and views of the San Gabriel Mountains nearby.

The house in the foothills last sold in 1979 for $97,500. It’s now listed for $1.499 million.

Sierra Madre Honors Derek Podrebarac as Fourth of July Grand Marshal

We are pleased to announce Sierra Madre’s own Derek Podrebarac as the 2017 Fourth of July Parade Grand Marshal. “The Grand Marshal is a person whose efforts over a long period of time have benefited to the Sierra Madre community. The Grand Marshal title honors a person or persons’ work, dedication and overall enhancements to our community.” Derek is an inspiring leader and volunteer, and has time and again embodied the spirit of Sierra Madre.

Derek Podrebarac spent the last 17 years calling Sierra Madre home with his family. He was born in Pasadena, grew up in La Crescenta and lived in South Pasadena, Monrovia and now Sierra Madre. Derek exemplifies what it means to be a true Sierra Madrean through his passion for giving back to his community. In addition to serving as a Real Estate Agent for Podley Properties, Derek’s volunteer efforts are felt throughout the community. He frequently volunteers at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He gives blood to save the lives of those who rely upon his rare blood type.

Derek is a tireless advocate, and volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. He spent time rebuild homes in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and more recently, projects in Mississippi. He generously donates his time to homeless shelters in Pasadena, and is an active leader in his local church. Derek’s passion for baseball has led him to become a devoted leader with the Sierra Madre Little League. He has coached and managed baseball teams in the league for the past seven years, contributing his talents and energy to multiple teams and age groups simultaneously.

Derek selflessly gives his time to improve youth sports in our community for children of all ages and abilities. For example, he organized, and now heads, the Challenger Division for SMLL, a Little League division designed for special needs children. In addition, he currently serves on the Board of Directors for the league.

In addition, Derek serves as a mentor to youth athletes as a baseball coach at Maranatha High School and other schools throughout the region. His motivation for serving his community stems from his pleasure in meeting and getting to know new people and their interests. He is a shining example of the sort of person who makes Sierra Madre such a magical place to live.
