2. Her Father Sold a Real Estate Business to GE for at Least $2 Billion



Amy’s father, William “Bill” Sanders, is known as a real estate mogul, according to El Paso Inc. He owns Verde Realty and has been highly successful in all his businesses. The book “The Richest Man in Town” noted that Bill Sanders began Verde after building a fortune in the real estate investment trust business. He founded LaSalle Partners and then Security Capital, one of the most successful REITs in the country, and later sold it to GE. (Some sources say he sold it for $2 billion and others say $5.4 billion.) Security Capital was one of the most influential real estate companies in history. Forbes, however, has cautioned against assuming that Amy is a billionaire heiress. Forbes noted that her father’s net worth is likely currently closer to $500 million.



In 2006, while Beto was serving on the El Paso City Council, the Land Grab Opponents of El Paso filed an ethics complaint with the city, alleging Beto had a business relationship with the Paso del Norte Group, developers proposing a downtown revitalization plan. His company was providing Internet services to Paso del Norte, and Amy’s dad was a leader of the Paso del Norte Group. The city’s Ethics Review Commission dismissed the complaint in 2006.





3. Her Career Is Dedicated to Helping & Teaching Children



Amy’s the director of education development for La Fe Community Development Corporation. She’s also the executive director of the La Fe Preparatory charter school, which she helped start. In fact, Amy has always had a passion for teaching and helping children.



Amy majored in psychology at Williams College in Massachusetts and received a certificate in Spanish before moving to Guatemala City for a year. While there, she taught kindergarten at Colegio Americano de Guatemala. She left Guatemala in 2004, returning to El Paso to teach first and second grade. She also worked with the nonprofit, Centro de Salu Familiar La Fe in south El Paso for seven years.
