We recently welcomed Robinson Property Company to the Chamber with a ribbon cutting during their grand opening celebration. The company, located at 1113 S. Broadway in Santa Maria, opened a few months ago in March.
“We provide real estate sale and property management and investment,” explained Sammy Robinson, owner of Robinson Property Company.
Robinson, who came to the United States from Korea, spent much of her youth waitressing and serving all types of people.
“I spent 19 years of my life waitressing. I met with all types of people and it really was a great experience to learn more about peoples needs and dreams,” Robinson said. She said that hearing about the hard work people went thought to save up to purchase a home, and the pride they took in home ownership, was what inspired her to want to get into the real estate business.
Robinson said it took her awhile to build the confidence to purse a career in real estate.
“Once my kids went off to school i finally decided to go back to school and I became a real estate agent,” Robinson said. “And a few years later, I became a real estate broker. And now, finally owning my own company, I feel like I’m completing my American dream.”
Robinson says owning her own business has given her more confidence, and she is proud to be able to provide jobs for others. “I really want to be a valuable part of the community, and help others less fortunate than we are,” Robinson said. “It’s not about money, it’s not about who you are. It’s about people and what they need.”
Robinson says she named the business in honor of her late husband, who passed away 11 years ago. “When I didn’t have the courage to start in the real estate field, he is the one who encouraged me I could do it,” she said. “I wanted to honor his name on our company, and I want to make sure we provide the best service to every customer who comes through this door. I want my husband to be proud.”
