Personal
I'm STEVE NOREN. I am Broker Associate and co-founder of Thunderbird Real Estate. Like most successful real estate brokers, I came to real estate from another profession. I first trained as an academic, earning a B.S.Ch.E. in chemical Engineering from Ohio University, followed by an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts in philosophy, philosophy of science and logic. After some 15 years as a university professor winning awards for teaching and for research, the profession lost its allure for me. In 1977 I decided to give voice to a my more practical side.

I have been involved with the brokering of real estate here in the Santa Cruz-Monterey areas for over 30 years and have won numerous awards for the sale of land, homes on land, and general residential sales. Rural property is my favorite and my specialty, although I have deep experience in general residential sales, project sales and even commercial property sales.

If you are looking for or are simply curious about any kind of real estate anywhere in Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito or Santa Clara Counties, give me a try. You will find me a hard working and caring person, attentive to your particular needs. With me, sales are secondary to service.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $850K in Bonny Doon, CA.
      I have bought 2 homes from Steve Noren within the past 10 years. Even before the market downturn, Steve was able to negotiate a great deal on my first home and landed me an even better deal on a fore-closure for my second. His knowledge of all aspects of real estate; from value, location, escrow, fore-closures, to title is very impressive. With 2 retired real estate agents in my family - I had already some knowledge and good input, but Steve clearly is a Master of his craft! I have recommended Steve to family and friends and will only use Steve Noren as my agent - he is the best!  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Santa Cruz, CA.
      Steve helped me buy my first house about 25 years back. Since then he has found subsequent residences and investment properties for me. Steve is conscientious and thorough with a good handle on negotiation and value.
