I am a marketing specialist.
I began my career in real estate as the marketing director for one of the top real estate agencies in Santa Cruz where I gained experience in the development and implementation of effective marketing strategies. I continued on as the marketing director for Dream Catch Properties in Capitola before becoming a licensed Realtor to work one-on-one with my clients and to direct my skills toward marketing your home.
I bring effective negotiation techniques and problem-solving skills to all transactions.
In college, as a student-elected ombudsman, I gained experience negotiating on behalf of fellow students to come up with fair solutions to the concerns of all parties. I apply these negotiation techniques in real estate to ensure a smooth transaction and to help my clients get the best price possible - whether that means a better price on the sale of your property or a more strategic offer on the home of your dreams. Together, we'll make it happen.
I have a background in design and construction.
When it comes to your home; you're in good hands. While co-managing and supporting the growth of a local painting and construction company for over 10 years, I became knowledgeable in construction techniques and cosmetic renovations. I use this knowledge to help you determine which (if any) home improvements are necessary before you sell, and which repairs should be prioritized after you buy.
I can increase the value of your property.
Staging, minor repairs, and basic improvements can make a world of difference when it comes to selling your home in Santa Cruz. Let me help you increase the value of your property with a few simple improvements. Short on cash? We can fund your renovation - with no interest or hidden fees, to get you the best price for your home. Contact me to learn more about our renovation options.
I am committed to my clients.
With over 14 years experience in customer care, I understand the importance of providing an invaluable service to my clients. I believe in consistent communication, honesty, and integrity when working with others. I strive to exceed my clients’ real estate needs and expectations throughout the entire process of buying and selling a home in Santa Cruz.

"Pema guided us through so many details for our first time home purchase. We had alot of questions and concerns but she always assured us and helped us feel secure about our decision. She is supportive, very honest and extremely knowledgable of home structures. I highly recommend Pema to anyone who wishes to have a caring and promptly responsive realtor."
"I had the pleasure of working with Pema during the purchase of my first house in Santa Cruz County and would absolutely recommend their services... Pema really helped keep the path simple while giving me the confidence that I was making the right decision. She had a breadth of knowledge and insight that other real-estate agents in the area may lack. The experience not only provided me with a new home, but a new friend in the area"
When it came to navigating the home buying experience, we wouldn't have made it through the complicated territory without Pema. What I appreciated most is that she turned a very complex and overwhelming process into one that we could easily understand. Though she was gentle with us, she was assertive when it came to offers and making sure that we got the home we wanted for the price we deserved."
