Congratulations to Sandy Onken! She is celebrating 12 years at Zephyr Real Estate this Fall and is based at our West Portal office, with an imminent expansion out to the new Marin location.

In her 13 years as a Realtor, Sandy has represented buyers and sellers on both sides of the Golden Gate Bridge, an edge that sets her apart when navigating the Bay Area real estate market with her clients. Her broad understanding of local market trends, that has come with firsthand experience, has fueled her in assisting buyers and sellers in both San Francisco and Marin County through the varying market conditions. She and her business partner, Diane Onken, have created a team that confidently provides comprehensive marketing programs, professionalism and a proven success record with a focus on exceeding client expectations, every time.

When congratulating Sandy on her Zephyr anniversary, she shared a look behind the scenes to get to know her a little better.

1. What is your favorite room in the house and why?  

“The living room.  It is usually the prettiest room in the house.”

2. If you had to choose a neighborhood that is the best kept secret of San Francisco, which neighborhood would you choose and why?

“Two neighborhoods are the best kept secrets: St. Francis Wood and Balboa Terrace which are right next to each other.  They offer stunning architecture, easy street parking, City & Pacific Ocean Views, and a great overall City location.”

3. Do you have a favorite architectural style in San Francisco or the world?

“My favorite architectural style is French Baroque – it is so romantic.”
