About Us and how we can help you

Michael Darling

With a wide variety of life experiences to draw from, I have the skills that are necessary for providing superior client service. Due to my father’s career as a Journalist, my family lived in five different states before I was 14. Flexibility, adaptability and packing household goods were big priorities when I was growing up. I learned early on how to make friends as well as develop a strong sense of adventure. I also learned that roots may not be permanent and that one has to make the best of each situation. My exposure to travel has broadened my understanding of human behavior and has helped me develop a sensitivity to the emotional challenges that come with buying or selling a home.

After being educated in Denver and Seattle, I settled down in the Pasadena area in 1985. For over two decades, I have consistently been considered a top Realtor – representing buyers and sellers of single-family and condominiums throughout Los Angeles and beyond.

When not representing my clients, I enjoy photography, honing my skills on my drum kit and motorcycle adventures.

My affiliation with dpp real estate stems from my belief in the company’s team philosophy – which extends into the communities it serves.

The San Gabriel Mountains have always provided the backdrop for Sandi’s life adventures. Her family moved here from the Westside when she was 4 and though certain chapters of life have pulled her away, the foothills will always be home. Childhood memories were created and cemented in Sierra Madre, marriage and motherhood nudged her to Pasadena, introduced her to La Canada and ultimately drew her to Altadena, where she currently resides. Many of Sandi’s passions (outdoor recreation, preservation of both natural and architectural surroundings and working with youth) are rooted in her love and respect for these communities.

Professionally, Sandi’s career has spanned three decades. Attending California Polytechnic University at both San Luis Obispo and Pomona campuses, Sandi graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Foods and Nutrition. She channeled her acquired appreciation for our rich California agricultural landscape by entering the fresh produce industry, where she was one of a handful of women to dot the business. Working pre-dawn hours from the Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Terminal Market, she arranged commodity purchases between growers and national distributors in both the foodservice and retail sectors. Her experience and skills in creative marketing, contract negotiation and conflict resolution transferred seamlessly into real estate and her partnership with dpp real estate.

Sandi has embraced volunteer opportunities through her past service on the Board of Altadena Heritage, as a 13-year leader of youth in Girls Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and as a current mentor for Pasadena’s STARS youth program.

Sandi’s personal interests include cooking, gardening, hiking and swimming . Her “home as art” is a 1928 character Spanish which she shares with her husband of 33 years, their daughter and a pair of West Highland White Terriers.
