About Carol Ann Walls-Sandell

I am a co-founder of the CAL Estates Group.  With more than 27 years of full-time real estate experience, we bring a lot to the table. Our partnership is based on a shared vision of compassion, creativity, collaboration, and integrity. Our complimentary strengths, personalities, and passions take our client's experience from excellent to exceptional. With a focus on both short and long-term lifestyle dreams, helping buyers and sellers is more than a routine for us. Whether you are buying your first home or selling your multi-million dollar estate, we will bring the same high level of commitment and service, while customizing a strategy specific to your needs and your best outcome. 

I LOVE what I do! I have been a licensed Realtor® for over 16 years, and with active real estate licenses in both California & Illinois, I bring a unique perspective to our clients. 

Before following my Real Estate passion, I spent years honing my customer service, marketing, and technology skills in the Hospitality industry. Not only did I own my own restaurant, I managed several well-known Chicago restaurants, was New Concept Manager for a franchised organization with 200+ stores, and Sales Manager for a tech firm that helped restaurants find technology solutions. I learned to embrace and get creative about what technology can do for business and how to market online. I believe this modern sense of marketing possibilities is an important part of what I bring to the real estate table. My background has also provided me with a strong sense of service, which helps me bring a personal touch to our client relationships.

I started my real estate career in Chicago and immediately joined the amazing brokerage, Dilbeck Real Estate, in early 2015 when I relocated to Southern California and obtained my California license. Why California? Southern California averages 287 days of sun per year, endless opportunities for adventure, great schools and universities, snowcapped mountains and beautiful, sandy beaches.

I am living in the mid-century, Glendora home where my husband Greg grew up, along with our 17 y/o daughter, and rescue animals (currently two dogs and one cat).
