Ace Estess Woods Realtor at Verve Coffee in Santa Cruz with Computer

AcE Woods
Realtor®

My name is Ace Woods and I am a 2nd generation local Realtor® and the founder of award-winning Dream Catch Properties. I am the 2022 Women’s Council of Realtors President and in 2019 I was honored to be voted runner-up for "Best Realtor in Santa Cruz” in the Santa Cruz Waves Swellies Awards. I also served on the Board of Directors for Modern Real Estate Professionals and am a member of Local Government Affairs at the Association of Realtors. In 2021 I successfully advocated for significant changes to the County Measure J program, and was welcomed into the Centennial Club at the Association of Realtors for my efforts to protect private property rights. I consider matchmaker and problem solver, and loves bringing people (and houses!) together. 

I understand economics and a solid investment strategy. With a business degree from one of the top ten public universities in the nation, I understand the importance of timing, valuation, and local market conditions when it comes to real estate sales and acquisition. I am a Certified Real Estate Investment Planning Specialist and I work in both commerical and residential sales.

I learned how to negotiate from the best. I worked alongside the Negotiations Professor from Stanford Law School, and I bring this competitive advantage to the bargaining table. 

I am a dynamic problem solver. One of the things I love most about real estate is that every day presents a new challenge and I enjoy coming up with creative win-win solutions.

I have hands-on construction and design experience. I have a strong understanding of the building and remodeling process from the ground-up. Combined with my eye for design, I can suggest simple yet effective improvements to transform your property and I can recommend quality professionals to guide you through larger construction projects. Over the last couple years I have also had the opportunity to participate in the construction process of my gorgeous listing at www.546BeachDrive.com which sold for $7,125,000.

I am a bulldog - in a good way. My french bulldog is my spirit animal - loyal, quirky, dedicated, confident and tenacious.

I am as local as they come. I am a second generation Realtor® and seventh generation California local.  I grew up driving around to open houses all over town, and you won't find someone that knows Santa Cruz County from stem to stern better than I do.
