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 have made friends and settled clients in almost every Santa Cruz neighborhood. I’ve built a network of experts – Contractors, Inspectors, Escrow/Title Officers, Lenders, Tax Deferral Specialists, CPA’s – we can call when we need them. And by carefully guiding Buyers and Sellers through complex disclosures, investigations and contract requirements I’ve protected them from legal turbulence.

I’ve also built a reputation for professionalism and trustworthiness among my local Colleagues. While we may be at opposite ends of a table at times, at others, 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, motivation, finesse, expertise and communication on the part of Sellers, Buyers and their Agents.

So what are you wishing? 

Let’s team up to make it happen!

Call or email me and we'll get started,

"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"

  -Cheryl S., Client

"Katrin carefully navigated a short-sale for us, adding the extra touch that allowed us to win our bid, and we couldn't have been happier. What we also appreciated about Katrin was her follow-up once we owned our new home. We cannot recommend Katrin highly enough. We have worked with her on two separate properties and every time she delivered exceptional results. Katrin is brimming with energy and you will find that every challenge is navigated with very clear business sense and grace!"

  -Natasha P. & Aaron H., Client
