Darcy's passion for real estate started at 11 years old when she built her first fort from a piece of plywood that her father brought home. Nothing has really changed since then.... except for gaining a lot of experience! She still passionately loves every aspect of real estate.
Over the last 40 years, Darcy has built oceanfront estates from the ground up, flipped foreclosures, been an investor, helped investors, designed remodels for resale, marketed luxury properties, built ADUs, and helped first-time owners realize their dreams.
Now, she works primarily as an agent and loves it. Nothing makes her happier than to see people living in the houses they want! She has helped many clients who thought they could not afford to stay in Santa Cruz. She has experience in marketing luxury estates, handling the coastal commission, resolving red tags, adding ADU's and creating group buying situations.
Darcy is a long-time resident of Pleasure Point. Her lived experience as a local, who has survived both boom markets and bust markets, means she understands how to navigate the ups and downs of our real estate climate.
Throughout her life, she has had three consistent loves; family, property, and the outdoors. She graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree, mostly in skiing. She and her wife have raised three children together. When Darcy was fifty, she gave birth to their twins, who are now teenagers. Life is never dull!
Her whole family loves backpacking, traveling, and hiking. While traveling in Cambodia and Viet Nam they stayed with families in stilt houses in faraway remote villages. Darcy is always fascinated by what makes a home for someone. In Cambodia and Viet Nam, she joined with many generations sleeping on the floors and noticed how they, too, felt the pride of ownership. There is no one right way to make a home.
Her goal is to gain your trust and make your life easy. You should feel like you have gotten the very best deal possible in every real estate transaction. Being a successful agent is about connecting with all types of people – and really listening to them – to help make their housing dreams come true. Darcy wants to be a part of your journey.
