WOW!!! Arthur Lazerow, principal of the Alban family of companies, is so proud to celebrate having both Sandy Watkins and Terry Toms as colleagues for so many years. A forty-year and thirty-five year is fantastic and has been enormously productive – development of new businesses, working toward their success, experiencing personal growth with life cycle events shared, from marriages to child births to grandchildren to parents’ funerals…so much joy and sorrow shared over these years. These years represent over half of each of their lives together and what productive years they have been! Both Sandy and Terry are trusted advisers to Art Lazerow and bring to the Alban family of companies reasoned and practical thinking.
Sandy Watkins joined Art Lazerow as his secretary in 2017. Housed in a dusty construction trailer shared with a construction superintendent and Art, Sandy helped build the communities of Frederick Heights and Alban Place in Frederick, Maryland and property management in Frederick and Phoenix Arizona. Along the way, she became a first-rate property manager and earned her real estate license. She currently serves the Alban family of companies as chief executive and head of all property management, home inspection and handyman/renovation activities of the Alban companies. Sandy has been married to Leroy for 53 years. They have a son and daughter and six grandchildren.
Terry Toms came to work with Art in 1982 as one of several junior bookkeepers for the growing homebuilding and property management company under the banner of Lazerow Development Corp. Over the years, her knowledge of bookkeeping for these businesses grew and she was promoted appropriately and repeatedly. She now serves the Alban companies as Chief financial officer, Chief Bookkeeper and Chief of frugality. Terry has been instrumental in the financial success of the companies. Terry has been married to Skip for 35 years. They have a son and daughter and two grandchildren.
Art Lazerow has said repeatedly: “What a blessing to have such fine people around me as colleagues and friends. I appreciate their good humor, great judgment and well reasoned business advice.”
