THE V.I.P. GUIDE 2017 A-List of Resources Home Design 1500 Martin Avenue, Santa Clara 800/681-0508; www.universityelectric.com » University Electric In 1919, when Jacob Heintz, an enterprising Santa Clara University student, began using his talent as an electrician to make a few extra dollars, he had no way of knowing he was launching a Bay Area tradition. But that’s exactly what Jacob did. As he wired homes for local residents and later supplied them with lighting fixtures and appliances, his work evolved into a highly successful business—a family operation that has grown to become one of the most respected home appliance centers in the country. Jacob located his company near Santa Clara University, and his son Walter joined him in the business after completing his education at Santa Clara. Eventually, when a larger site was 44 South Bay Accent needed to support the expanding operation, the Heintz family stayed true to its Santa Clara roots and moved to a new site within the city. Today, University Electric Home Appliance Center employs four of Walter’s sons and four of his grandsons. University Electric has a proud history in the Bay Area, not only for the family’s involvement, but also because of time-honored values embraced by both owners and employees: exemplary customer service; honest and professional dealings with everyone from homeowners to builders to manufacturers; and fair and competitive pricing. That’s the way Jacob Heintz did business, and that’s the way his family continues his legacy.
