Each month, we’d like to take the time to highlight one of our phenomenal brokers with a profile into their life — their hobbies, their interests, and what is important to them outside of Real Estate. This month, we start with our very own Sabine Andraud!
Sabine Andraud has been with Coldwell Banker for 16 years and has been a phenomenal realtor the entire time she’s been here. Named the Top Producer of Coldwell Banker Trails West Realty, Ltd. for 6 nonconsecutive years, Sabine is known as our “Bulldog” due to her limitless persistence and tenacity. She always digs right into a job to get it done and done well. She has achieved membership into not only the Coldwell Banker International Sterling and Diamond Societies but also the elite Presidents Circle — one of the top 7% of sales associates worldwide. While her love in life is her daughter, her passion is Real Estate. We couldn’t be happier to have you as a part of the Coldwell Banker Trails West Realty, Ltd. team, Sabine! Below is our interview with the Bulldog herself…
To start with something more lighthearted, what is your favorite movie?
“Con Air. I really like the plot, the fact that it kind of has action, romance, and comedy — all the things I like in a movie, but also it has Nic Cage in it, and I really like him.”
What do you do for fun? Do you have any hobbies?
“I love to drive up to Denver to see my daughter. She encourages me to get my head out of work and go to the movies with her (sometimes 3 times in a couple of days!) and we love to go to D-Bar and enjoy their chocolate ganache cake. It’s so good! I also really love the actual drive up to Denver — I blast my music, like Cardi B, Motown, or country, and I talk on my BlueTooth to my clients. I really do love working — real estate is fun!”
So, if Real Estate is fun to you, what is the most fun part of Real Estate?
“The most fun? Definitely the problem-solving. I also like helping people find the right home. Taking all their wants for a home and materializing it into reality — it’s what drives me.”
Real Estate is the passion of your life, but you’ve said before that your daughter is the love of your life. Would you like to share a bit about your daughter?
“My daughter, Arryel, is amazing in so many ways. She’s hard-working, driven, strong, and goal-oriented. At 22 she graduated with a Masters in Criminal Justice and now works for the Denver District Court. I’m extremely proud of her.”
So, I’m sure working in Real Estate for 16 years, you’ve met a lot of interesting people. Tell us about a moment with a client that made an impact on you.
“Once, a seller of mine, told me, ‘I trust you so much, Sabine, I wish that you could be my Power of Attorney and just make all the decisions for me.’ It just meant so much to me because of the level of trust — they trusted me to always work in their best interest. It was very moving to me.”
If you could give a piece of advice to someone just starting out in real estate, what would it be?
“Save up some money first, find a successful mentor, and put together a gameplan of how to market yourself. You are your own business, so you need to find some way to sell yourself.”
Coming from our Top Producer of 2019, we’d say that’s pretty great advice!
