Sandra Rinomato

Sandra Rinomato was selected out of hundreds of potential realtors and hosts to present a new reality real estate television show for HGTV Canada in March 2006. With no previous television experience or grooming, her show “Property Virgins” came out of the gate in the top two real estate shows for the broadcaster. After viewing only five rough cut episodes the show was sold to HGTV US who
commissioned 26 episodes for season two. In addition, for its second season 2007, Property Virgins has become the highest rated show on the Canadian network.

Sandra’s seventeen articles and blog on attracts much attention with viewers having discussions among themselves, discussing the subject matter of the articles, asking questions and praising Sandra.

Sandra also continues to service her local clients with continued success in the real estate arena. Sandra achieved President’s Circle status, an elite award within Coldwell Banker in 2006. As a manager and coach for realtors she increased the success of many realtors with coaching sessions and late night phone calls. Achieving top unit production within her branch was no easy task while shooting her TV series for nine out of the twelve months. During this time she also solicited a new location with better street exposure for that branch, bringing the proposal to the Broker/Owner who was reluctant to make the move. Championing for the entire company took three months of persistence and diligence but once she sets her mind to something Sandra rarely gives up. The move has proved to be favorable for all

Sandra recently completed her first book, Realty Check: The Real Scoop on Real Estate and is in talks with publishers to bring it out on the Canadian market in early 2008. With two full-time careers and a family Sandra makes time for other important issues in her community. She takes great pride in having raised over $30,000 for Breast Cancer Research through her Ladies Lousy Golfer Tournament, and has participated in other charitable endeavors such as Baskets for Women’s Shelters, Coats for Kids, Breakfast with Santa. Sandra Rinomato has taken a career that began with Rookie of the Year (branch) to top 5% Coldwell Banker representative world wide.

As she built her career and family, Sandra had to deal with deteriorating health due to a congenital heart condition. In 2004 Sandra underwent open heart surgery to treat her condition. With a new lease on life, Sandra has broadened her reach to millions with a highly successful reality real estate television show. Enjoying family and friends over a big bowl of pasta is her favorite past time, stating that her cooking is better the hungrier you are.
