MY SERVICE

Serving my clients is a passion of mine plus I strive to go above and beyond expectations; don’t just take my word for it - take a peek at my before and after gallery and read some of my Rave Reviews from my clients to see how I've helped others.

MY APPROACH

I can help by coordinating any landscaping, staging, repair estimates and provide professional contractor recommendations needed to best present your home to the market – first impressions are everything after all. Naturally, a homeowner knows their home best, so with your help I can create a marketing campaign utilizing video, photos and storytelling to "paint the picture" to attract the ideal buyers to your home. Sticking to our timeline and saving you time and money are my top priorities. Your goal becomes my goal and I know how to get us there.

WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY ABOUT ME

"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

Seller

"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

Seller

"... 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."

WHY YOU NEED AN AGENT

Selling a home is stressful enough without having to learn a brand new set of skills and critical information. Let your trusted agent guide you through this process, focusing on marketing, showings, and contract negotiation.

As your agent, I will be your trusted advisor, I will connect you with trusted service professionals and I will be your advocate. I will negotiate on your behalf and keep what you tell me confidential.

I will look out for your best interests, keeping your goal in mind. I am your extra set of eyes and your resource for tricky questions and contractual language to keep you protected.

WHAT ARE YOUR PRIORITIES?

GIVE THESE QUESTIONS SOME THOUGHT BEFORE WE GET STARTED SO YOU'RE NOT CAUGHT OFF GUARD. I CAN HELP WITH THE BIG PICTURE AND THE SMALLER DETAILS.

How much is your home currently worth? How much do you expect to invest in your home to sell it for the best price?

Think about your history of your home, do you have all your records handy? What improvements have you made over the years? What issues have you had?

What is your timeframe? Would you like to be moved in to your new home before you start a new job? Or the kids are back in school? Consider the undertaking of packing up and setting up your new home.

Where are you moving to? Do you need help finding your next home? Do you have your needs in order so you can make a smooth transition to your new home?

How much do you owe on your home? Consider your proceeds before selling to be sure you're maximizing your investment.

What do you love about your home? What are your favorite things about living here? I can use these positives to help find your buyer.
