Some Like It Hot

Chili Cook-Off
The weather may be cooling off, but things are heating up at the Boardwalk this weekend! This Saturday, join the fun at 10 a.m. to watch chefs – professional and amateur alike – battle it out for Best Chili. You can be a part of the process by purchasing a $10 tasting kit and voting for your fav in the People’s Choice competition. The only requirement? Come hungry.

Free Streetcar Demo
The Coast Futura is a clean energy streetcar that is coming to Santa Cruz for a demonstration this weekend. Book a free ticket online then hop on at the Boardwalk and enjoy the route south to Capitola.
Glass Pumpkin Patch
You’ve probably already been to the pumpkin patch and gotten your jack-o-lantern-worthy picks of the patch. But you probably haven’t been to the Live Oak Grange to see these hand-made glass works of art!

Home Renovation | Should I Renovate?

The Big Question: Should you Renovate or Move? | Here at Strock, we typically recommend that you do both. In the past 18 months, we have seen home equity skyrocket – as in, an average of $35,000 increase across the country. Historically, that’s a huge jump. So, do you want to cash out & get into your dream home, or use that equity to increase your property value? Read More

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

“I’ve been a part of roughly a dozen real estate transactions over the years and have worked with a number of agents and brokers. Strock, hands down, has the most customer service, and creative thinking-based approach I’ve ever seen. Daniel Fitch is a particular joy to work with. He’s energetic, dedicated, and has the ability to communicate clearly. His knack for finding a middle ground is of particular value when negotiating transactions and I really appreciate his win-win approach to working with people. You can definitely tell that he’s in it for long-term relationships rather than a quick and dirty transaction and that’s the type of person I want on my team when patience and perseverance are often needed. Kudos to the Strock team and Daniel Fitch for your commitment to excellence in the field.”
