Sandra Wilken’s love affair with the cities of Paradise Valley and Scottsdale began more than 50 years ago when her family relocated to Arizona from Boston. That love, along with her natural winning way with people inspired her decision to jump head-long into the real estate industry.
Driven to be the best, Sandra quickly earned a reputation for providing her clients with high-quality professional services — all with a personal touch. During those early years, her portfolio of loyal clients continued to expand catching the attention of several Canadian real estate developers. Their vision — build premier developments in desirable locations throughout the Valley — but they needed an expert to ensure their success. Drawing on Sandra’s unique background in architecture, design, marketing and sales, a partnership was forged which ultimately led to the completion of seven world-class developments, including The Phoenician and Gainey Ranch.
Sandra Wilken has devoted more than half of her more than 40-year career to working with developers to create high-end luxury communities in the Valley of the Sun. Today, Sandra and her team are both humbled and extremely proud to have sold more than $1.4 billion in new development residential real estate since 1979.
With Gainey Ranch complete, in 1995 Sandra launched Sandra Wilken Luxury Properties. Her vision for the new company was to go far beyond helping her clients buy and sell their homes. Sandra’s ambitious goal was to provide a list of expanded services for her clients who needed much more than your typical real estate transaction, thus planting the seeds for what has now become the novel concept of premier concierge services.
Today Sandra Wilken along with her team of highly trained and passionate professionals begins an exciting new real estate venture by joining Modern Portfolio Real Estate Services, LLC. A whole new, next-level concept in the real estate industry, Modern Portfolio provides clients with the highest level real estate buying and selling experience along with a wide variety of premier concierge services. We are so proud that this will be the first and only concierge service program of its kind in Arizona.
Sandra continues to live her passion and commitment to helping clients find their perfect home here in the Valley. She is truly honored and inspired to work with the best advisors and clientele in the most distinguished neighborhoods of Paradise Valley and Scottsdale.
