MEET SUSAN GRANT, SANTA CRUZ REALTOR
Santa Cruz County is as unique and beautiful a location as you're ever likely to encounter. I love living here and I love what I do. I live in a great community that supports and honors its LGBT members. And as an out professional I can show you firsthand how wonderful it is to live here on the Central Coast.
I've taken exceptional pride in making the dream of home ownership in Santa Cruz County a reality for my clients. There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
Whether you're looking for your very first home, a vacation getaway, selling your personal home or downsizing towards retirement, nothing gives me more satisfaction than the joy of my clients at the successful close of their transaction. I am confident that you will benefit from my thorough experience, patience, and marketing and negotiation skills.
SANTA CRUZ: A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO CALL HOME
Our beaches are only the beginning. Nestled between the majestic redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains and the tranquil sandy stretches of the Monterey Bay, Santa Cruz County is a place like no other. What a truly wonderful environment to call home!
Conveniently commutable to the Silicon Valley, Santa Cruz County offers natural splendor and a flourishing arts community while still retaining that small-town feel. Wine connoisseurs enjoy exploring the many award-winning wineries of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Miles of trails through the redwood forests and oak-studded hills of our state parks offer plenty of recreational opportunities for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians. A world-class surfing destination, Santa Cruz County cherishes its classic California surf culture.
Whether it's the charming shops of Capitola Village, the fine dining of downtown Santa Cruz, the antique treasures awaiting you in Soquel and Aptos, or the farm-fresh produce of South County, there's a little here for everyone. And then, of course, there's our beautiful beaches stretching around the spectacular Monterey Bay. When you're ready for a big-city getaway, San Francisco is only 90 minutes away.
