2013 was a banner year in San Lorenzo Valley residential real estate.   Average prices rose 23%, and distressed sales fell to less than 30% as homeowners regained equity.   In 2013, I was the top Boulder Creek agent, representing 12 satisfied buyers and sellers.

Real estate is my second career, and I love it!   I've discovered there's intrinsic value to helping people with one of the most significant investment transactions of their lives.    My role is to help you understand all of your options, so that you can make informed decisions at every stage of your real estate transaction.

After working for about a dozen years in the San Francisco Financial District, I'd fully realized my dream of analyzing and trading investments.   I'd become Vice President of a prominent mutual fund, responsible also for SEC Compliance.  While it certainly was exhilarating to trade tens of millions of dollars any given morning, at the end of the day, I'd had very little meaningful impact on anyone's life.    I began to think of it as working in an ivory tower...electronically moving funds around the world.    

As that career lost its meaning, I decided to transfer those research and negotiating skills to this more fundamentally rewarding work.    I worked for several years in Sonoma County, as a licensed real estate assistant.

I relocated to the Santa Cruz mountains in 2005, when I joined Century 21 Showcase REALTORS.    Having made that transition, I'm able to explain exactly what it's like to move and live here.   Consequently, a lot of my business is helping people relocate.

While I specialize in selling rural Santa Cruz mountain homes, acreage and/or bordering creeks and rivers, I'm also experienced with sales transactions in the cities of Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz, and down along the coast including the hills of Soquel and Aptos.

Regardless of whether you are selling your home, buying a vacation or investment property, or relocating here, I'll listen carefully to your dreams and goals.   You can relax, confident that I'll be drawing on my business and real estate background to represent your best interests in negotiations - from the offer, through inspections, and on to your successful close of escrow!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Mariposa, CA.

MC was great at helping us prepare to sell our home in late 2013, and not fazed by the challenges of selling our older mountain cabin in Boulder Creek.

As out of town sellers (we relocated to a different town before selling) we had no problems communicating and processing the many transactions electronically and by phone.

She patiently answered all my questions and concerns and definitely knows the market in San Lorenzo Valley.

Bottom line, is she listened and worked hard for us to sell our home, helping us to achieve our goal of selling fast, receiving our selling price goal and doing it all without having to drive back and forth.

Bought a Single Family home in 2006 for approximately $550K in Boulder Creek, CA.

MC worked with us while we were on an interview trip from the east; then again prior to our move, to be ready to hit the ground running; and finally for several intense weeks after our arrival. She showed us many homes in the San Lorenzo Valley and Santa Cruz Mountains, continuously refining both her and our understanding of what we really wanted. Ultimately, we found a remarkable home within our price range. She went with us to the county offices to research the details of the property, and arranged for house inspections by reliable experts. The closing process went smoothly, with no surprises. We have enjoyed living in the home greatly, and have kept in touch with MC in the years since. We highly recommend her services for those interested in the San Lorenzo Valley, an area where a local expert is a great asset.  More Less

Bought a home in 2007.

MC helped my buy my home north of Boulder Creek several years ago. I was impressed with how much she guided me through the inspection process and researching the house through county records. She also helped me understand what kinds of homes were available and we found a home that I adore to this day.  More Less
