Thank you for your kind words. We loved working with you!

“Team Strock is FABULOUS! A chance comment from the owner of an Aptos home my wife and I admired (not even on the market) while working with Ben led to his skillful follow-up. Ben negotiated a mutually agreeable price and balanced terms, and we were under contract within 2 days. This created a problem with prepping and selling our Santa Cruz West Cliff house as fast as possible. Again, Team Strock to the rescue. Ben and his staff arranged inspections, sewer lateral replacement, plaster repair, painting, staging, and even an entirely new roof replacement to be accomplished in just a few weeks. The staging and photographs were top-notch, and the video’s fantastic. Even in the worst beginning period of the COVID-19 shutdown, we had interested Buyers interacting and viewing our home with Strock safely and respectfully. Through every step of the process of buying and selling Ben and his staff handled every small detail, kept in touch with my wife and me constantly, and moved the transactions forward step by step. Rarely do you find a company with a group of professionals that are so well-cross-trained, efficient, and customer-centric. Ben and his team are exactly the kind of organization and group of individuals that we prefer to work with. P.S. As an added benefit, Ben, Sarah, Tarra, and the rest of Team Strock are extremely fun to work with too!!”
