"Helping people make good real estate decisions"

  President, Broker, Co-Owner, Realtor®

Sandi started in real estate early on. As a student at the University of Michigan, she bought a FSBO, a home for sale by owner, and saw the need for the service that a professional would have provided. So after graduation, she became a Realtor®, improving the profession as she went. 

Sandi has served on many committees for the Ann Arbor Board of Realtors including Education, Grievance, Professional Standards and even served as a Director. In 2007 she was named Realtor® of the Year. 

She was elected to the Michigan Realtors' Board of Directors, representing District 12, and currently serves on the Finance Committee and the Realtor of the Year Selection Committee.

As Broker for Trillium Real Estate, she enjoys helping our agents to grow successful real estate businesses.
