Bringing REAL into Real Estate

I believe everyone should be able to have a place they call home; a place that is uniquely theirs. Let me help you find yours.

My Promise to You

Describe your ideal home and I will work tirelessly to help you find it — in the right neighborhood, at the right price. With my extensive local knowledge and a knack for matching folks with their favorite places, I will help make your dream home a reality.

If you’re looking to sell, I’m an excellent negotiator and have a unique talent for design and staging. With solid knowledge of Santa Cruz County and knowing what buyers are looking for, I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Background

My mother was a Realtor and I follow her passion for finding people their perfect home. I’m a native Californian, born in Berkeley. I moved a lot when I was younger, experiencing Southern California’s beaches, Pennsylvania’s woods, Hawaii’s rainforests and Utah’s snowy mountains. But I always returned to the California Coast – and have lived in Santa Cruz for 23 years.

A Passion for Home
Santa Cruz is a place like no other. I love its natural beauty and strong sense of community. Since 1995, I’ve explored the nooks and crannies of the county from the coast to the mountains. Ranging from Santa Cruz’s Westside to the Eastside, Soquel, and Corralitos and beyond, I can show you the hidden gems that make each place special.

Unique Marketing Skills
I owned and operated my own graphic and web design company for 11 years and have a BA in Design from UC Davis. My extensive design and marketing knowledge means your house will be efficiently promoted on the appropriate platforms to assure a successful and swift sale.

Deep Community Connection
As a long-time board member of Think Local First Santa Cruz County, I help local, independent businesses stay alive and thrive. They showcase what makes Santa Cruz special.

Why I love Santa Cruz
When I’m not working I love to surf, hike and enjoy the outdoors in this amazingly beautiful place. I enjoy all of the artistic aspects of Santa Cruz County and have fun playing music with friends and participating in the lively local music and art scene.
