Welcome Joey, Nancy, and Gisele!
Welcome our newest Strock Team members: Joey, Nancy, and Gisele! Here’s a little bit about each of them:
Before joining our team, Joey was working in property management in San Jose, where he quickly became a top manager. He went on to get his CA Real Estate License and then was connected with Strock Real Estate – he’s stoked to be working in the where community he was born and raised.
Nancy will be helping our team with Lead Flow Management and Sales – she comes to us from Fox Shocks, where she was working in HR and talent acquisition. Fun fact: she’s a fourth-degree black belt AND teaches kickboxing classes – which you best believe the team will be attending soon!
We’re so excited to introduce our new Client Care Associate, Gisele! For the past few years, she’s been working with Patagonia in management, HR, communications, and grant review roles. At Team Strock, she will play a key part in helping us maintain all of our listings so that are shown in the best light.

This gorgeous two-story duplex in Downtown Santa Cruz sits on a beautiful treelined street. You’ll love the timeless details like the 3-toned exterior paint, gingerbread dormer, and stained glass. Both units have been refreshed, and the upstairs unit has a couple of extra surprises: a loft and a rooftop deck!
If open concept were an extreme sport, this home would be an Olympic champion. This Seascape single-family stunner has soaring ceilings, high beams, and full-length windows that create an airy feel as soon as you step through the front door. Tack on a massive deck for alfresco living year-round, and you’re really living without boundaries.
Thank you for your kind words. We loved working with you!
“When we began our search for a home on the coast, we were captivated by the innovative Instagram marketing videos created by this real estate team. We interviewed several real estate agents recommended to us and then interviewed two agents at Strock. We settled on Rose Wood, who impressed us with her professionalism, knowledge of the area, and experience with many transactions in the area. She immediately connected with us and honed in on what our needs and motivations were in finding a property our family could enjoy on the coast. Rose was exceptional and without her we wouldn’t have been able to close a very complex deal with lender delays and an ambivalent seller. Rose is not only pleasant to work with, she has a strong understanding of processes, nuts, and bolts, and what it takes to get a deal done. Her knowledge of the area is unparalleled and she truly takes the time to get to know her clients’ needs. She followed through on everything and was able to advise and support us throughout all the twists and turns of our transaction. She is thoughtful and kind as well and we are happy to have gotten to know her through this process. She is a wonderful realtor and a wonderful human being. Can’t recommend her enough! Work with Rose you will be in great hands!”
