Hi, I’m Jennet! I am a hospitality driven agent, meaning I focus on the whole experience for my clients from beginning to end. Whether you are new to the Santa Cruz area or new to the selling process, my goal is to ease the stress of the experience by educating you, preparing you, and creating a strategy for success based on your needs and timeline, not mine.

I drove to Santa Cruz from the East Coast at the end of the summer of 1990. I was embarking on my adult life. I was clueless about Santa Cruz (about a lot of things really), but Santa Cruz was a college town near the beach, so how could I go wrong, right?

Well, I WAS right, Santa Cruz is an AMAZING place to live! I am still here after 30+ years!
I have lived in MANY different communities of Santa Cruz County, from the mountains to the beach! I know the "bests", the “secret spots”, and I understand the nuances between the different areas of Santa Cruz County so I can best guide YOU in finding YOUR perfect community, and ultimately your perfect home!
