Ultimately, Real Estate is a people business and pixels don’t sell homes, people do. Sellers have different, and sometimes conflicting, priorities: getting the highest possible price, a quick or a quiet sale, a tax deferral, coordinating a move or another purchase. Meanwhile, Buyers may be juggling the desire to buy with concerns about affordability, inspection findings, avoiding risk/surprises, investment interests, timing pressures, the admonitions of relatives, and more.
Sellers: Let’s leverage the super-power of Coldwell Banker’s global reach by making sure impressions of your property are gorgeous, enticing, timely, correct and targeted.
Buyers: It’s a common perception that Realtors sell Real Estate. But with professional and patient guidance, I find Buyers sell themselves on the right home or investment. What I DO sell is YOU (and your offer) to Sellers who have multiple offers to choose from. There are so many things we can finesse to increase your chances of winning.
With so much information at our fingertips, it’s easy to underestimate how important it is to have a human with local expertise and connections guide you through the complex sale or purchase process. Over the past 18 years I’ve worked through transactions small and large, distressed and prestigious, tricky and charmed – all right here in Santa Cruz County.
I've made friends and settled clients in almost every Santa Cruz neighborhood and built a network of experts we can call when we need them. I’ve also earned a reputation for professionalism and trustworthiness among my Colleagues. Sometimes a client’s success could depend on my ability to collaborate or get an inside scoop. I’ve found it helps to be nice!
The sales process is a complex collaboration that requires trust, focus, finesse, expertise and communication on the part of Sellers, Buyers and their Agents. What are you wishing? Let’s team up to make it happen!

I have known Katrin for 20 years, but this is the first time I used her as an agent. I had had a few difficult experiences with agents on my last transaction, so I turned to Katrin to be my buyers agent in this very competitive, low inventory, high price market. Katrin (with class, integrity, care, grit, tenacity and savvy) guided us through several multiple offer …

Katrin proves without doubt that the best things come in small packages. She is a petite dynamo with exceptional and patient people skills. Always timely and available to us, she paid attention to the smallest detail. I can't imagine finding oneself in better hands, Thanks, Kat

"With Katrin's help we were able to sell my father's fixer upper home for more than we hoped. She read the market perfectly and set a plan that led exactly to entering escrow and a successful sale just as she envisioned. She found the perfect buyers despite the challenges of the house being occupied by an elderly couple. I recommend her very highly."
-Monica P., Client
I’ve heard some people say that, in Santa Cruz, it doesn’t matter who your agent is because houses here sell themselves. I almost believed this when you got us three above asking price offers after the first weekend. But when things got rough and two consecutive buyers dropped out of escrow I was so happy to have you there to see things through. We wouldn’t have …
