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!

Katrin did a fantastic job selling our home. She worked with us on timing the sale, how best to present the home and the how to work with perspective buyers. We got offers the first weekend we had the house on the market and closed quickly and smoothly. Katrin never left us with questions or concerns, she was on top of the whole process.

Thank you for everything! It was a pleasure working with you. You efficiently and caringly carried this through to a successful purchase despite a very difficult realtor for the seller and having to deal with 2 buyers (one out of town)! I appreciate your excellent communication with Mako and me to keep us informed every step of the way. Thank you very much!
