Ace Estess

ACE Verve Headshot.jpeg

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 and seeker of knowledge.  I love nothing more than a new challenge.  If I don't know the answer to a question, I'll find it!

I have hands-on construction and design experience. As co-founder of Collins Coastal Plumbing, Inc., 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.

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.
