More about Sandy Bates

I have an extensive background in customer service, communications and small businesses for over 20 years.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Tucson, I have been a resident for over 50 years, and have watched Tucson grow from a small into a large urban city. As an Air Force Veteran, I have lived in Japan and visited other areas in Asia. I graduated from NAU in Public Agency Service, with a minor in criminal law, which peaked my interest in volunteering as a Mediator for the Attorney General's office. This helped in my ability to communicate and provided me with the experience in resolving conflicts and providing solutions. I also volunteered in the Victim Offender Mediation Program and Truancy programs in the Pima and Final County elementary schools.

I also have volunteer experience as an AYSO Registrar Board Member. This allowed me the opportunity to interact with families, both adults and children from all ages and understand the needs of each family member. In addition to being an active Board Member, my children participated in soccer for many years and I enjoyed being an Assistant Coach during their earlier years.

I have owned my own Allstate Insurance Agency in the past, and have experience in property, casualty, life, health insurance and financial services. I facilitated my customers in planning for the future, into guiding them to create "safety nets" in place for life's unexpected outcomes.

I founded Paws n' Critters in 2009, a pet services company, of which I've experienced exponential growth year after year, while maintaining a high level of customer service. My company has received award winning recognition for top notch customer service. My business covers Vail, Green Valley, the Greater Tucson area, Marana, Foothills Oro Valley and Catalina. I currently have two cats, in the past I have had many animals including horses and reptiles.

I enjoy hiking, camping, traveling with my adult children and grand daughter, while creating memories that will last a lifetime. We have more recently been enjoying visiting historical locations in the continental USA, and revisiting history.

I look forward to helping all of my customers with their real estate needs and making new customer relationships. I look forward to helping you find your first home, your next home or your dream home!
