We had the good fortune of connecting with Andy Sandhu and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Andy, have there been any changes in how you think about work-life balance?
Since starting in Real Estate, my work life balance has skewed in the right direction. Before starting in Real Estate I was working 15-18 hours a day to support my family. With this shift in work, I am now able to spend much more time with my wife and kids. My wife and I have actually starting doing what we call Sunday Fun Day. It is a day where we find something fun to do which we as a family will have fun doing. Whether it is going on a fun Hike or heading for a day of fun at the Renaissance Fair, without fail we take a day to ourselves to out and create memories that a couple years ago we would never had the time to do.
What should our readers know about your business?
My business revolves around helping families or individuals find exactly what they are looking for in their new home, while having fun doing it. Buying a home can seem like a daunting task, but if you find the right agent who knows what your feeling and understands the ins and out of the process, we can turn a stressful situation into something that is fun. My goal at the closing table is to not have just helped a client find their new home, but to have made new life long friends. That is what I feel set me apart from allot of other agents out there. This motto in business is what got me to where I am today. It was not an easy transition into working Real Estate. I started at the height of the pandemic. I made all the typical mistakes one typically does when starting. My thought process was that everybody would know that I was an Agent as soon as I started. It took realization and a great support network to understand that it is all about making friends and getting out there that will make me successful.
A great lesson that I learned early on was that being myself and not faking who I truly am is what is important. When I first started, I thought that being the ultra dapper, suit and tie guy, was the only way to be a great agent. What really matters is making that connection with that person and actually wanting to help them. Not just making the deal, but really wanting to understand what they want and working as hard as I can to help them find that. One thing I always tell clients once we have closed on their home is that this is not the end of the road for us. I am always a phone call away for anything you might need. It doesn’t matter if they need help moving a box in a year, or learning how to fix something in the home, or even just sitting down and having a beer to talk. I am always there whenever they need anything.
What I want the world to know about me, my brand and my story is that doing something you love and something that can help others, can become the most rewarding thing one can ever do. I like to always say to my wife and kids that I am not going to work, I am going out to have some fun and help find a sweet home for my new friends.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am not one to make a traditional Itinerary. I like to find new fun things to do and explore what our city has to offer. I like to find those new and exciting places that most people might not know about. If I was to pick a couple places to go to It would look something like this.
1. Drinks: Williams and Graham, The Roosevelt, Vodka Bar, Carioca Cafe and Bar, Nallens Irish Pub, and of course my house.
2. Food: El Caso in the Highlands, MAD Greens, Little India, Jacksons for Burgers, At the house for some good home food.
3. Fun: Urban Putt, Boulder for Hiking, Rockies Field for a game, Denver Botanic Garden, Denver Zoo, Denver Renaissance Fair when it is open, and most likely a round of golf at some of Denver’s finest courses.
4. Hang out: I have to say my new favorite spot is Levitt Pavilion for some great outdoor music, City Park to hang out and enjoy the outdoors, and as always the Back Patio with some drinks and good friends.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give a huge shout out to my wife Tiffany who supported me in my pursuit. She is the one who pushed me to find something that I knew would bring great joy to our lives, but to lives of others.
I also want to to thank my mentor John Stegner and the New Era Group for helping to place me on the right path to starting an amazing fun career in Real Estate.
Without the help and support form others, the path to success is a long and lonely path.
