About Us: The Rader Realty Story

How Rader Realty began. We've been in business for over 50 years!

Sally and Alton

In 1961, Sally B. Rader earned her real estate agent’s license.

Sally loved working in the business world and helping her clients buy and sell real estate. She thrived with the excitement of brokering deals so that everyone involved would be pleased with the transaction’s final outcome.

Working for several Covina brokers over the next few years, Sally was an industrious and successful agent. She was well-known for providing excellent service and assistance to her clients and other Realtors and business colleagues. She was considered by those who knew her to be a real “go-getter” and a trusted partner. (The Rader family would tell you she was a terrific wife and mother, too.)

In 1965, Sally obtained her real estate broker’s license.

Always enterprising, Sally soon decided that she would try her hand at running her own brokerage and so in 1967, she opened her own company, Rader Realty, Inc.

Over the next several years, due to her ehthusiasm, tireless work ethic, and comittment to her clients, Sally's business quickly grew. In one week, Sally closed 17 deals! And so, in 1970, she was joined by her husband, Alton B. Rader, and, in 1971, by son, Kevin F. Rader. Under Sally’s leadership, the family business continued to flourish. Recognized as experts in their field, Sally was voted president of the Board of Realtors, and a few years later, Alton was also elected as president of the Board.

In 1996, after innumerable successful real estate transactions, Sally and Alton both retired from real estate, and passed the baton of leadership on to Kevin F. Rader. Kevin focused on real estate appraisals and was the respected and beloved leader of Rader Realty, Inc. until his unexpected passing in July, 2018.

In the years since Rader Realty was started, real estate has seen many new developments. The internet, mobile phones, and mortgage interest rates are just some of the changes that have contributed to the way real estate businesses are managed today. And now, at Rader Realtors, the traditions of trust and providing excellent service helping clients meet their real estate goals still are and always will be our guiding principles.

Sally, Alton and Kevin wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

April 29, 2017 - Covina Fun Run

We had the most fantastic time at the Covina Fun Run!
This was our first ever "booth event" and we were excited to see how it would go. It was terrific! The pancakes were delicious and it was an amazingly beautiful day! We had a ball meeting our Covina neighbors and supporting all of the Fun Run participants. Even the Covina Orange ran over to say hello!
We want to thank all of the great people who stopped to say hi and play a round of PLINKO with us. We're already looking forward to seeing you all next time!
