Sandy Roberts - Realtor ®
Sandy is both a Listing and Buyer Specialist with Lovette Properties. Sandy (formally named Franklin Roberts) comes from a long family line of Raleigh natives and no one knows Raleigh like Sandy does! When we asked him about how he feels about Raleigh, he shared “ I feel a special tie to this city as a true native of several generations. This enables me to appreciate where Raleigh has been but also gives me a desire to shape her future as well. I truly can say I’ve see her grow up into the world class city she is today. I’ve run the tracks and trails all over this city and feel that I have a unique perspective to all the various areas, neighborhoods, niches and communities that shape the diverse culture and character of this great city.”
For a glimpse into Sandy’s personal side, his longtime passion is running! He says “I started running in the fourth grade and have been running competively since the age of 9. I ran at Georgetown and also at NC State earning all American honors. My passion for community and running came together for me in starting Sir Walter Miler. Sir Walter Miler is a community based track event with national recognition. It invites people into the historic feat of the 4 minute mile while also being a part of something bigger than themselves. It started as a one person race and has grown into 5 separate races full of runners going after their fastest mile possible. We now have 3-5k in attendance coming to watch these atheletes compete. This past year, 10 runners ran under the 4 minute mile with even a para-olympic world record. Most important is Sandy’s faith. He has a heart for ministry and believes there is a higher calling on his life and believes that service is not about “self “ but about self sacrifice. This impacts how his relationships look and how he spends his time and resources. “The reason I am what I am is because of my faith. It guides my daily direction and how much I love those around me. Servant leadership is something that I try to do...though imperfectly I know. I look to Jesus Christ as my ultimate example in both my vocational and personal life.
