Sandy Collier - Expert Real Estate Services | DRE#01099715


Please let me introduce myself.

I’ve been a real estate agent for 15 years and specialize in horse properties in the Santa Ynez Valley, CA. Born in Massachusetts, and raised in New England, I have lived in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley since the 1970s where I was an internationally renowned professional horse trainer, judge, and clinician.

My equestrian success was the result of hard work and dedication, combined with integrity and a positive mental attitude. I now bring these character traits to my real estate business. I know my client’s needs when it comes to looking for a working equestrian ranch to purchase or to sell, as well as a thorough knowledge of the valley’s residential areas.

I currently serve on several national boards. I am a multiple NRCHA and AQHA World Champion, as well as an international judge and clinician. I was also inducted into the Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Ft Worth Tx and the NRCHA Hall of Fame. For more information about my equestrian life, please visit www.SandyCollier.com.

If there is anything I can do to help you in achieving your real estate dream, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Escrow closed last week on my house in the Santa Ynez Valley. I knew that I was going to use Sandy Collier as my listing agent from the time I decided to sell. Knowing Sandy for some time - I knew she had an amazing work ethic and that she was extremely professional. I also truly trusted her guidance as far as listing price, showings, offers and documents. Not to my surprise, Sandy surpassed my high expectations. We had multiple offers from the first day listed. Sandy kept in close contact with me during the process and everything went very smoothly. We had an amazing offer and closed escrow in 30 days. I would highly recommend Sandy to anyone wishing to sell their home. Sandy made the whole process seamless for me, although I know she worked diligently to make things happen!

Sandy Collier is a stellar agent, and rock star. Within four days, she had our house up and listed on the market. Within 90 days, we were closing on the sale for a great price! Sandy has the boldness, patience and calm that comes with being a champion horseback rider. She helped us navigate our emotions, bridge gaps between us and our selling party, and we would not have been able to close this transaction without her. Sandy Collier has our highest recommendation for residential sales in the luxury property market.

Sandy was amazing from start to finish. Working with first-time homebuyers can sometimes be daunting, but Sandy handled it with ease and unparalleled professionalism. She was always available to answer my client's questions, and always provided advice in the client’s best interest. I’ve worked with a lot of Real Estate Agents, and it was a breath of fresh air to partner with someone who put their client first, and not their personal gain. My clients left every meeting with Sandy in a positive mood, and excited about their decision of home ownership. I would trust all of my clients with Sandy. Thank you!

As a first-time home buyer, I was nervous and intimidated heading into the home buying process. That was before we began working with Sandy Collier. From open houses to the closing table and beyond, Sandy was always available to quickly respond to our questions and concerns. She was aware of exactly what we were looking for, and she sprung into action the moment our dream house was listed. She had a feeling it was "the one," and she was absolutely right. We had some unusual plans for the house that involved a lot of red tape, and Sandy was right there with us, making calls and connecting us with the resources we needed to navigate our way through it all. "Above and beyond" doesn't even begin to describe the level of attention and assistance we received. We are so grateful to have worked with Sandy and we will be recommending her without hesitation to anyone we know in search of a real estate agent.

Sandy was instrumental in closing a deal for us at an excellent price in a market that had very quickly become frighteningly uncertain.

She was able to engineer the acceleration of our escrow under very challenging conditions (our house went into a 60 day escrow right at the beginning of the Covid 19 Pandemic, but closed in 36 days). It was very well done.

Sandy was very responsive throughout and continue to be so. Her knowledge and understanding of all the variables was solid. She was highly attuned to the nuances of the market, looking ahead and predicting possible outcomes. I couldn’t have asked more from her and have no hesitation recommending Sandy for your next agent.

Sandy has been helping me search for a home in the Santa Ynez Valley for the past year. She has kept me updated on listings in my desired location and price range. I could always reach her by either phone or e-mail and always got a timely response. She made sure that my real estate transactions were taken care of even when she was unavailable due to surgery. Her manner is friendly and professional.

When you get into the mix of the transaction Sandy shines. She is your partner through the negotiations and sticky points along the way. I’ve done many deals and never before have I felt that my agent had my back the way Sandy does. She genuinely wants what is best for her client. She is not just an order taker looking for a check. I highly recommend Sandy for your next transaction.

I hired Sandy Collier to sell my large 6.5-acre ranch property with a small house and large garage that was a bit of a white elephant in its design. There were times when Sandy had to go above and beyond to keep the showings on track and make the house presentable. I think her clear thinking and direct style helps her a get through to solutions quickly and efficiently. So many people respect her in the valley that obstacles have less resistance with a person of her caliber. In the end, we were able to find the unique buyer who could bring his experience and skills to fit this property and find a win/win for us both. I would recommend and use Sandy Collier as my realtor again without hesitation.

I met Sandy at a clinic in Paso Robles. I learned that not only was she a great clinician but she was a realtor based in Santa Ynez. We had been thinking of buying property in the valley for a while. Sandy immediately got to work on our wish list. She showed us listings all over the valley for a year. We put in several offers and Sandy was always looking out for our best interest. We recently purchased property in Santa Ynez with Sandy. During negotiations, she was able to professionally convey our wants, wishes, and needs. Sandy is the ultimate professional which resulted in a mutually beneficial and successful closing. She is hardworking and meticulous and guided us through the process with ease.

Patrick and Janis

We have recently completed the sale of our home in Los Olivos, having Sandy Collier of Engel and Völkers as our listing agent. My husband and I were immediately impressed with Sandy’s knowledge of the process and her explanation of the timeline we should expect. We had an offer within two days and it was in escrow within 4 days, with an18- day escrow! Her diligent attention to each detail, keeping us informed on a day to day basis, definitely made the entire selling experience go as smoothly as possible. Sandy had everything we needed to be lined up for us to address, which we did, and have successfully sold our home in record time. She is efficient and professional and very responsive. Having someone with extensive knowledge of the Santa Ynez Valley be such a great advocate for us was a blessing and very reassuring indeed. We highly recommend Sandy Collier to anyone looking to move their property quickly.

Judd and Merilee

What started out as a very complicated transaction became my awesome new HOME, because of Sandy's professionalism and diligence! Throughout my recent real estate purchase Sandy kept me informed every step of the way, what COULD happen, what TYPICALLY happens, and what will PROBABLY happen. This made me feel very confident! Sandy's efficiency, her attention to detail/deadlines, her discipline in her role, her direct questions & responses were key to making and surviving this transaction! She is a dedicated agent who definitely keeps the best interest of her client in front of everything. I honestly feel I would not be sitting in my new home today if I didn't have Sandy's "Get 'er Done" personality on my side! Thank you Sandy!

Sandy was recommended to us by our financial advisor. Sandy went out of her way to think for us every step of the way. Her professionalism is amazing and was matched by her wonderful personality. If we ever decide to venture into a real estate transaction again, Sandy will be our first call. She helped us find the perfect home!

I have worked side by side with Sandy for years and have come away from each transaction filled with admiration for her integrity, sincerity, tenacity, and complete desire to please her clients and find a way to work towards the best results for all parties involved. Highly recommend Sandy for any Real Estate needs.

Kris M.

Sandy could not have been more helpful in helping my husband and I find our dream property. With a constantly friendly and professional attitude, Sandy helped provide a breadth of knowledge on each property we viewed. When we found the one that we loved, Sandy made the purchasing process easy and she made us feel completely at ease through each step of escrow. We could not have asked for a better realtor. Thanks for all that you do, Sandy!
