Agent Spotlight: Sandi Vakos, Hometown Girl Keeps Close To Her Roots


Sandi Vakos has not only Greek in her background but also real estate.

“My family has been in real estate here in Virginia Beach and Norfolk for several generations. Plus they are very involved in the Greek community in Virginia Beach,” said Sandi.

Sandi’s family is being honored at the “My Big Fat Greek Party” at the beach this weekend. This is part of the Mediterranean Weekend to honor and show off Greek and Italian culture in Virginia Beach.

Sandi is no stranger to community involvement. She has been an elementary school teacher, small business owner, and instructor at the Virginia Beach Recreation Centers and the YMCA. She sees her real estate career as an extension of her community involvement.

“Becoming a real estate agent seemed right for me. I choose Rose and Womble because of the people I met there. Everyone seemed to be genuinely caring and helpful, “ Sandi says.

When she is not helping buyers and sellers, Sandi enjoys all the outdoor activities available in the area including First Landing State Park. She is also a world traveler and has hiked the Inca Trail in Peru and El Camino Santiago in Spain.

Sandi is a proud member of the YMCA, Spring Branch Church, and the Tidewater Appalachian Trail Club. She is working out of the Rose and Womble Shore Drive office and received her real estate education from Alpha College of Real Estate in Virginia Beach.

She isn’t bashful about admitting her love of her hometown, Virginia Beach.

“My favorite city in Hampton Roads is, of course, Virginia Beach where I grew up barefoot on a bicycle. It’s home.”
