Meet Derek Sandgren
Derek Sandgren was born and raised in the Yuba-Sutter area and grew up around the local real estate industry. Derek is a graduate of nearby Marysville High School and the University of Pacific in Stockton (UOP). At UOP, he obtained a degree in Electrical Engineering and Engineering Management. After a few years of consulting work in Sacramento, he came back to his “roots” to team up with his brother, Brian, to form the Sandgren Real Estate Group. As a team, they have sold over 640 transactions since 2006, making the Sandgren Real Estate Group one of the highest producing teams in the area in just over 8 years!
In 2010, the Sandgren Real Estate Group joined Jeff Helm to create Helm Properties. At Helm Properties, their focus is identifying distressed properties for their clients and reselling these properties after acquisition. In the process, they are bettering the community through the rehabilitation of homes and helping people achieve their goals of home ownership.
Derek has also been involved with the Yuba Sutter board of realtors. He has held many positions, including various committee chairs and has served on the board of directors.
