Areas of Expertise
Having extensive experience in buying, selling and remodeling homes over the years has helped me to see multiple aspects of the real estate industry. Possessing strong knowledge of home construction, design, decorating, and having an excellent sense of color has proven invaluable in determining a property’s potential along with developing effective marketing strategies. Throughout twenty-seven years of living and working in Santa Cruz, I am proud of the relationships I have built which form a strong and versatile list of professional partners. I pride myself in being detail oriented, thorough and professional at all times. As much as I enjoy evaluating the development potential of real estate the most rewarding and exciting aspects of my real estate business are Marketing, Pricing and Negotiation. Marketing and Pricing are paramount to successfully selling a home and a very rewarding part of the process, but negotiate the best possible price and terms for my buyers and sellers is where I really get excited. I love negotiating the "Deal" more than any other part of the process, that's the exciting part and I am very good at it...
