Santa Cruz Native Serving Santa Cruz!
As a proud native of Santa Cruz County for more than 45 years, I am knowledgeable about the various communities that form our wonderful town. Growing up in Santa Cruz, I attended Rio Del Mar and Santa Cruz Gardens Elementary Schools, New Brighton Middle School and Soquel High School. While earning my teaching credential from San Jose State, I had the pleasure of substituting in schools throughout the county. I later had the pleasure of teaching, full time, at one of our Santa Cruz schools. My extensive personal experience with the local schools, coupled with my in depth knowledge of our community as it has changed over the last three decades, gives me, and you, the advantage over other real estate agents.
With a background in marketing and keen negotiating skills, I have what it takes to be a successful Realtor. I am thorough, reliable and determined and I will get the job done for you!

"Shawna marketed our home for sale in a way that brought in multiple offers and we found ourselves on the fun side of a bidding war. Our home sold for well above the asking price and closed quickly." -- Peter D.
"Shawna was a tremendous help in finding us a home in Santa Cruz. She was very professional in her approach and her knowledge of the area really helped us to find a great home that we now live in. Shawna always had our best interest at hand and made us feel very comfortable with our decision. I will continue to use Shawna as a resource and would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to make a move to the Santa Cruz/Capitola area." -- Mario F.
"I don't do testimonials often, but for my realtor Shawna Spaulding, she deserves all the praise. Not only for her hard work and professionalism, but she really would go the extra mile to make me feel comfortable at every stage of the process. First time home buying can be a daunting experience, but Shawna made it feel like a walk in the park despite the seller's demanding deadlines. If there's ever another opportunity to make use of Shawna's services, there will be no hesitation on my part. Our family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts." -- Diego T.
"My wife and I were referred to Shawna by a friend here in Santa Cruz. From the first day we felt that Shawna treated us like a close friend who wanted to find the best house she could for us. There was never any pressure, she worked with us to get to know our home preferences and was very understanding of where our limits were. Her knowledge of the area and the home-buying process in Santa Cruz County was instrumental in our final purchase. We ended up with what I would say is better than what we had ever imagined possible. As with anything there was some luck involved, but without Shawna we wouldn't have been in a position for that luck to roll our way. Thanks Shawna, we love our new home!" -- Kailash M.
