As a recent widow, I wanted to sell a long time, big home in the San Lorenzo Valley and downsize to a place in Santa Cruz. A friend recommended Beata and she was the perfect person to support me with this huge transition in my life. She's incredibly familiar with both markets, so she knew how best to stage, show and highlight the features of my Felton home and property, and she was also able to guide me to areas of Santa Cruz based on my interests and budget. She listened closely and carefully to my evolving ideas of what type of place I wanted and where I wanted to be, and skillfully modified her searches based on that. I especially appreciated her calm, patient, positive demeanor, and her ability to balance offering advice/expertise based on her years of experience while also respecting my thinking and ideas. I’m so grateful to have connected with Beata - she helped me find the perfect buyers for my home and steered me toward the best location and home for this next chapter of my life. She is a gem!
