Helped me buy a home
Sandy is very knowledgeable of Santa Cruz area real estate. She helped us a lot. She helped us to find a house we wanted. And she helped us after the purchase to find contractors, lenders, paperwork, utilities, etc. She is good communicator. Her negotiation skills have saved us a lot of money. Sandy is somebody you can trust. I highly recommend Sandy.
Helped me sell a home that I had inherited from my aunt.
Sandy gave me great advise on targeted improvements in a cost effective way prior to going to market. We had an action plan which produced stunning results & generated a lot of excitement.
Sandy skill & experience in pricing & presentation brought many interested buyers and I have no doubt that I received absolute full value for my house
Helped me buy a home and then helped me sell it
I met Sandy in 1999 when I was buying my first house. One of the first things she said to me is: "I am your realtor for life". She has been that every step of the way through buying three and selling one house. She gives 200% and acts as if you are the only client bugging her day and night. She does everything with calmness and sincerity. Thank you, Sandy, once again! Anne

Sandy has been the best Realtor since day one
“Sandy explained that in this market you have to prepare your house for sale to get the highest price. We agreed to stage our house, have a home inspection and a pest inspection, paint some rooms and clean everything. It took us two weeks to prepare and Sandy was there to help and advise all along. Then she told me it would be on the market for two weeks before we would look at any offers. We had two weekends of open houses and two broker tours. Several people wanted to make offers right away and we ended up getting five offers and closed with the one that was 9.3% over that list price that Sandy recommended. At first I even thought Sandy had priced the home too low! Hope you listen to Sandy when she recommends a price that will cause your home to have multiple offers. She has the integrity to set the price right at the beginning and then stand up for that price until you have multiple offers. We only had to show it for two weeks and we just sent our selves on vacation. Sandy really knows the market and how to get the highest price!”
Since I was a kid I wanted to own an old farm house with a barn in the Santa Cruz/Monterey
area. Prices for what I wanted were always just out
of reach. I began watching Sandy’s website many years ago and saw real estate prices skyrocket, then the market “adjustment” happened and I got serious about looking for my retirement compound. As the market prices gained again and I narrowly missed
out on two offers which Sandy wrote for me, I had just about given up on my dream. Then I found my ‘acre with a barn and old farm house’. Sandy stepped up and made an offer at a good price with a quick closing to sweeten the deal. My offer was accepted, but unfortunately I was scheduled for surgery that following week. Sandy got a team of local contractors to do all my inspections and she dealt with the County to get all of the available records I needed, and I now own the perfect piece of property. Even after years of looking and longing, it is amazing how fast things move when you find the right property, you need an experienced local agent with the right connections to be sure the job gets done correctly and quickly. Thanks, Sandy.”
It was my dream to have a beach home in Santa Cruz! I was on Sandy's, seesandy4homes.com web site and she was sending me listings for a long time before we went to look at homes. I knew when I first meet Sandy that she had so much to offer in experience of how to buy the home you really want. I felt that she was going to take special care of me.
I was already working with my bank in the bay area, when Sandy recommended that I use a local lender. She warned me that the BANK would make changes at the last minute and it would be difficult to close on time. The BANK was difficult and wanted a second appraisal at the last minute. That delayed the closing. I had no idea that this process had to be so hard. I was so glad to have Sandy working for me. She was always focused on my dream of owning a beach home and it was a HAPPY ENDING. Sandy made sure I got this home and closed with a good interest rate and good terms. She handled every detail for me because I was not able to be there for the inspections. She made sure the seller finalized the permits for the remodel. The Homeowners Association would not answer any of my questions about putting in new windows because I didn't own it yet. Sandy asked the seller to get those answers.
Sandy negotiated a great price on a newly remodeled condo that I have decorated and made our special beach home in Santa Cruz. Dreams really do come true and I have Sandy to thank for it! At the end of this journey I got my Beach Home. I have a very special friend and Realtor that I highly recommend. In fact I have recommended Sandy to my Mother to sell her home in Aptos and she is very impressed with Sandy!

“Sandy has helped to make our dream a reality. She is not only a professional that one
expects from a real estate agent, but also showed us kindness and genuine concern for our needs. Sandy took our requests and requirements and simply put, ‘made it happen,’ in a very short period of time. Her honesty and dependability set her apart from all of the other real estate agents that we worked with in the sale of our Santa Cruz home.”
–Abe & Isabel Sanchez
"Sandy is wonderful. She is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She has a great attitude and isa delight to work with. I absolutely recommend her if you are buying or selling a home!”

"Sandy represented us in the purchase of a property from a trustee estate. It was a
complicated process but she guided us through it smoothly and kept all the parties together through the purchase and sale negotiations and legal obstacles. All parties were satisfied with the final closing.
"Sandy has an incredible ability to respond to her clients’ wants, needs, and expectations to
determine the right home and find it while avoiding the ‘others.’ I would absolutely recommend Sandy for anyone looking for a home in the Santa Cruz area.”
