THE V.I.P. GUIDE 2015 A-List of Resources Home Design 1500 Martin Avenue, Santa Clara 800/681-0508, www.universityelectric.com » University Electric In 1919, when 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 Heintz did as he wired homes for local residents and 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 valley. Jacob located his company near the university, and soon his son Walter joined him in the business. When a larger site was needed to support the expanding operation, the Heintz family 40 South Bay Accent 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 two of his grandsons. Two daughters-in-law also work for the company. 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, competitive pricing. That’s the way Jacob Heintz did business, and that’s the way his family continues his legacy.
