Santa Cruz Ocean Front Specialist

I am a Santa Cruz native with extensive knowledge of our coastal and rural neighborhoods. I love Santa Cruz and have a great appreciation for all that Santa Cruz has to offer. I enjoy helping first time home buyers, investors, as well as experienced home buyers. My belief is that real estate is not about making the sale, it is about satisfying my clients and not only meeting, but exceeding their goals and expectations. I understand the key to having a seamless working relationship and a successful experience is communication. My team and I take pride in being available at all times. We check email consistently throughout the day and are available seven days a week on the phone or in person. We send out status updates multiple times a week to ensure everyone is on the same page.  

I am a full time Real Estate professional with the right experience, knowledge and qualifications who is responsive to your needs and will skillfully represent you in all aspects of purchasing or selling your home. Choosing a realtor and a property is one of the most important decisions of your life. I enjoy going the extra mile for my clients by offering valuable tips and tools to achieve the best possible outcome. I am hard working and family oriented with a unique skill set. I have true passion for real estate and I am always seeking ways to improve. I actualize this is by being active in educational real estate lectures and seminars, as well as listening to the desires, concerns and suggestions of my clients. 

 I have over 10 years of diverse real estate experience. I have helped others buy and sell their homes and made personal real estate purchases and sales, as well. I have vast experience in financing commercial and residential properties for individuals and investors at both retail banks and brokerages. I have also worked on other types of real estate transactions including permitted building projects, property management, loans, loan modifications, loan processing, loan underwriting, credit repair, foreclosures, short sales, REO’s, notary public services and more..

 As a homeowner I know the importance and implications of buying and selling real estate, therefore, I treat each transaction as if it were my own, with the utmost consideration and attention to detail. I understand that each client's needs are unique. In the pursuit of finding the right home, the right schools, employment and neighborhoods must also be contemplated. I have firsthand knowledge on local neighborhoods, crime patterns, educational institutions, neighborhood demographics, traffic patterns, and resale values. My aggregate experience is extremely beneficial to the success of my clients, particularly first time buyers.
