Proven results using an in-depth knowledge of local communities and services - from schools, resources and recreation to the unique and rich history ("Certified Local" by Sandy Lydon) of the region. Passionate about the history of Santa Cruz and in my spare time you'll find me participating in history classes, lectures and walks around the county or at shows collecting maps, postcards, photos and other ephemera relating to our rich and diverse community!
I started part time in real estate while my kids were still in school. This part time job soon became full time when I found that I liked working with people to help them find their dream homes.
Helping buyers search for their next home is very rewarding because I learn about their motivations, dreams and goals to assist them on their journey. It's fun to watch them walk into the kitchen and realize they are they are the right fit for the home.
I like helping sellers because I can be more in control of the transaction. I can set the tone by getting the house and paperwork ready before any buyers see the house. This helps a quick close of escrow go smoothly.
My clients like that I'm honest and keep them informed during the process. I'm also patient, understanding, hopeful, respectful and dependable.
