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!
