A home is all about you. It’s about your life, it’s about your hopes and dreams, it’s about your routine as well as your community. We want to know exactly what you want and we won’t stop until we find the one. Home is where the heart is, but finding the right home can be a challenge. Through creativity and ingenuity, over 30% of the properties that we track down for Buyers are found off-market.

 
COMMERCIAL

COMMERCIAL

Commercial real estate includes retail space, office buildings, industrial land, and multifamily apartments totaling five or more units. Commercial property operates under its own regulations, contract timelines, lending guidelines, and buyer criteria. In Santa Cruz County, buying and selling commercial property necessitates an in-depth discussion of your investment criteria. Please call us to discuss your commercial real estate needs.

"There are no words to describe I way I feel about Troy Hinds. My mother lived in Santa Cruz and past away in May. I live two hours away. Troy took care of everything, and I mean everything, for me. Recommended a great estate lawyer and between the two of them, mostly Troy, they took care of everything for me. He even helped with finding a good home for all moms furniture. Troy was constantly in contact with me, letting me know what needed to be done with the house. I could not have done it without his help, and I will be for ever grateful to him. You will not be disappointed with Troy, he is a keeper!"

Real estate is one of the most important investments you’ll make.

 

We work tirelessly to meet and exceed your expectations. For Buyers, our creativity and ingenuity helps you identify undervalued assets and unique opportunities while gaining access to key information necessary to stay ahead of the competition. We also utilize the latest mobile technology and proprietary aggregated property data to give our clients the most intelligent and comprehensive real estate due diligence available.

 

What sets us apart is not what we do, but how we do it.

 

We think differently, we see unrealized potential, and we tackle challenges collaboratively in order to produce innovative outcomes for our clients. For Sellers, our use of fresh marketing ideas, cutting-edge technology, and network of strategic relationships empowers you to complete the sale of your property on your own terms, but not on your own.

 

Locate off-market deals. Identify undervalued assets. Capture unique opportunities.

 

Successful real estate investment starts with buying right, continues with collectively adding value in the best possible way, and ends with comprehensive marketing. Whether you want help to overcome the sea of obstacles to home ownership, are searching for that perfect fixer upper, or need guidance through the successful sale of your property, we’re passionate about what we do.
