I'm probably best known for my friendly, enthusiastic energy and entrepreneurial spirit while helping my clients buy and sell real estate in the Santa Cruz community. The match-making aspect of buying real estate is one of my favorite parts of the job. Each region has a unique vibe and offers its residents a lifestyle most other areas in the Bay Area just can't compete with. When working with my sellers I especially enjoy working to "paint the picture" of what each individual home offers to effectively attract the ideal buyers, as well as creating unique marketing experiences both online and for the neighborhood.

I believe that communication and attention to detail are the key ingredients to exceptional service. I also consider lifelong learning crucial and continue to stay educated on how to best utilize the industry’s resources, latest technology, and fresh marketing techniques to best serve my clients in today’s market. I'm very proud to hold the NAR Green designation. I am focused on helping my clients live a more resource-efficient, sustainable lifestyle while saving both money and energy consumption, as well as reducing overall waste.

Something you can feel good about: for every sale I make, 1% of my commission will be donated to the Santa Cruz SPCA, this is my Giving Back commitment.

Being an active member of the community is incredibly important to me. I especially enjoy volunteering regularly, attending seminars and local events; I believe that having a strong community transforms the place where you live into genuinely feeling like home. When I'm not working with my clients, you’ll most likely find me watching my husband surf, volunteering for the SPCA or MBOSC, riding my beach cruiser around town, mountain biking at Wilder Ranch or walking my pup Dash along West Cliff.

"My wife and I are very happy with Jacquie's help finding the property and for her great help along the way. Any questions or concerns were dealt with immediately. She was always listening and paying attention to our thoughts and concerns and quick to do the necessary work to move things along."

~ Keith

Santa Cruz Buyer

"Jacquie was knowledgeable about the market, a strong negotiator, great communicator, patient, and prompt with responses. She sold my home quickly and for the target price I wanted, with minimal effort from me."

~ Andrew


"It was a pleasure working with Jacquie to sell a house I'd lived in for over 20 years. She was able to marshal a team to identify and tidy up many loose ends, arrange staging and successfully sell the property. Because of her familiarity with the process, I was very comfortable knowing that the many details, logistics and legal, were being looked after for me. Thanks Jacquie, for turning a rare event for me, into a pleasure!"

~ Olav


"... In the end, we got a great deal and Jacquie made sure all records, permits, and details were covered. When some unexpected repairs came up in the inspection process, Jacquie was able to negotiate on our behalf to have some costs reduced to help cover these repairs. That saved us a lot of time and money. Will definitely recommend her to anyone we know looking to buy a home in the Santa Cruz area."

~ Michael
