Whether you need to sell, find the perfect personal residence, or are looking for an investment property, I apply 100% focus, dedication, and commitment to helping you meet your goals. Through honed communication dialogs and strong leadership I will navigate you through the complex process of purchasing and/or selling successfully.

Local Knowledge

The unique landscape and community of Santa Cruz has been my home for the last 28 years. My community involvement spans the real estate, local school, green building, and surfing communities. I bring energy, enthusiasm, and experience to the table. I have 23 years of experience in real estate investment, property/construction management, and vacation, short-term & long-term rentals.

Commitment to Building Wealth   

Being a real estate investor myself, I look at buying and selling homes with an investor’s mindset. I am passionate about the potential for real estate to create wealth; be it building equity in a primary residence or through monthly income generated by  investment property.

Seasoned Communication & Negotiation  

My clear, concise communication and shrewd, savvy negotiation skills set me apart. I clarify the complex process of purchasing and selling property, with ease. I am a great listener, and put my clients in the driver's seat, yet am always standing by, ready to provide strong and clear leadership when needed. When the time comes to negotiate on your behalf, I take the wheel and deliver your message to the other side with definitiveness, drive, and integrity. I never give in until you are satisfied with the deal that has been negotiated.

Accomplished Green Professional

I am a L.E.E.D Green Associate, EcoBroker, and USGBC/Santa Cruz City Green Schools volunteer and committee member. I am passionate about energy efficiency and sustainable design. I can help you find healthy homes that are not only more comfortable to live in, but have lower energy bills and can give you an advantage when selling.

I have the ability to educate and connect you with the resources that you need to make informed decisions about energy efficiency, air quality, water conservation, building orientation, and green building materials.

I will help you find a home with maximum green potential, and can market your home as a “Green Home” when it is time to sell.
