Santa Cruz County Home & Community Information


Welcome (back) Home!

I wanted to comment on a positive trend I have noticed in my personal Real Estate business this year.  I service the Santa Cruz County in California which is a higher priced beach area just south of Silicon Valley and north of Monterey.  I was born and raised here and like many of my peers couldn't imagine living anywhere else.  I've tried it (I've lived in Argentina, Spain, Italy) but I always come home.  The geographical setting of the Monterey Bay is gorgeous, the community is great and there is just so much to do for every type of person.

Being in a high demand, beach area our prices have been out of reach for most people and many of my peers that I have grown up with.  I am realitively young ( I just turned 30) and people my age with young families have not been able to find a way to make it here and moved out of the area to states like Washington, Utah, Idaho where they could afford to buy a house.  Well with the steep drop in real estate prices this year I am happy to say they are coming home!  I have worked with several young families that had moved out of Santa Cruz and never thought they could come home.  This year they were able to buy homes here and raise their family in the same place they were.  I know the real estate market has affected many people in a very negative way but this is something positive for our community to have young families being able to buy here again.

So come on home to Santa Cruz!  I will be happy to help you find your home here, just give me a call at (831) 419-9345 or an email at

Argentina, Spain and Italy, that must have been quite an experience. Santa Cruz has taken a hit recently.

Jessica, that is a heart warming story, especially for those of us in the Bay Area.  I will look for you on the boardwalk...

Jessica that's well put, and an under-reported benefit of the economics of this market. This can serve to revitalize an area with a more youthful demographic who willl support the community for many years to come.  Welcome home!  Leslie
