Meet Chantal Sanchez of The Sanchez Group

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chantal Sanchez.

Hi Chantal, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’m Chantal Sanchez and real estate is my passion. I come from a long line of design and real estate talent, and credit my grandfather Edmundas Jurksas with my trained eye for design and architecture who escaped a war-torn Europe, taking up residence in Laguna Beach, where his architectural and engineering skills grew in demand, to design homes in Emerald Bay. Just as he had a talent for design, I have a natural gift for optimizing sustainability and increasing value in high-end properties.

I went from being a single mother of two little girls over six years ago with $200 in my bank account to making well over six figures in less that four years while working in real estate.

It’s a joy for me to work with homeowners and buyers interested in decreasing their carbon footprints and pairing their eco-lifestyles with stylish homes. If you’re looking to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, you may already be considering purchasing an energy-efficient home or equipping your home with sustainable technology. With the rising cost of energy, demand for eco-friendly, energy-efficient homes is at an all-time high. As a GREEN-certified agent-based in Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s La Jolla office, it’s my passion to educate homeowners and would-be homeowners on the many benefits of eco-friendly homes and sustainable living.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In 2015 I left my ex in Canada and had two suitcases, two daughters and $200. I returned to my native Long Beach, CA to be closer to my family and start my life over as a single mom. Within two months, I worked my way into a marketing position a private university, got a car and found an apartment in Bluff Heights, where I met my neighbor and future husband, Charlie Sanchez.

By 2018 we got married in Joshua Tree and moved to the desert in Palm Springs. During my pregnancy with my third child, I decided to study real estate and help my husband start his business in home inspections. We founded Diamond Home Inspections in Palm Springs and by September 2018, I got my real estate license when my son was just 3 weeks old. I quickly joined a team in Palm Springs.

I started working right away and met Baltic Sands Inc, an all-women real estate development company in the High Desert, who gave me my first listing: a brand new construction off-grid home that inspired my sustainable homes passion. While my husband and I were raising 3 kids, his home inspection business launched and I sold 17 properties my first year.
