I am a full-time REALTOR and a lifetime resident of Santa Cruz County. My passion is helping others which I accomplish through both my real estate profession and mentoring skills. (My daughter says I should have been a teacher). My clients benefit from my extensive real estate training, education at UC Santa Cruz and USC in Psychology, Education and Counseling and over 30 years experience in the field of marketing and advertising. Whether you are buying or selling, my goal is to get you the best price and protect your interests in the transaction.
After years of buying and selling real estate for myself, I decided to become a realtor to assist others in the stressful but rewarding process of acquiring and protecting real estate assets. Ten years later my goal remains to help my clients thru the challenging time of making large financial decisions and protecting their interests in every step of the sale or purchase transaction. I live by the Realtor Code of Ethics. My highest obligation is to see that my clients are fully informed so they can make the best decision for them. I work with a team of professionals, both in lending and inspecting, who's goal, like mine, is to offer the best service in the industry and make your transaction as smooth and satisfactory as humanly possible.
My “standard of care” is as follows;
Win-Win ……… or no deal
Integrity ……….do the right thing
Communication ……..tailored to fit your needs
Customers………….always come first
Trust …….. I will tell you what you need to
hear (whether you like it or not)
Success…..thru hard work and team building

In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, scuba diving, travel, gardening and relaxing with family and friends.
