Member, Surf Rider Foundation

I’ve been a Santa Cruz resident for most of my life except, as a child, when I had the good fortune to travel the world with my parents and siblings. We sailed through the Philippines, the Pacific Rim, the Panama Canal, Holland, the Eastern Seaboard, as well as Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest. I have lived in such diverse places as Brazil, Sweden and Mexico. This experience opened my eyes to the many cultures and lifestyles of the people I encountered and I believe has kept me in tune with what makes people happy. I carry this knowledge with me, along with my excellent communication and negotiation skills, into my 30+ year career in real estate, resulting in numerous real estate transactions with many satisfied clients.

 

In addition, I’ve owned and renovated many homes over the years and I’ve even built a few. Whether you are looking to purchase or sell a home, I have the experience and knowledge to help you and I take pride and satisfaction in listening and understanding your wants and needs.

 

As a home buyer you can trust that I know the local Santa Cruz County area very well-- right down to all the nooks and crannies of every neighborhood, including the local hot spots, beaches, shops and schools. I can even give you a surf report.

 

If you are planning to sell, rest assured that I keep abreast of current market trends to ensure your home is priced right. My team and I will help you make your home ready to show with advice and guidance on home staging, interior and exterior home maintenance, along with superior marketing and advertising.

 

My areas of expertise cross a broad spectrum that includes, but is not limited to: first time home buyers, retirees looking for beach front vacation homes, DIY home remodelers, investors seeking 1031 exchange properties or empty nesters wishing to downsize.
