Welcome Our New Agent, Faith!

Introducing our newest agent on the Strock team: Faith!
Faith first got into the industry as a loan officer before getting her Real Estate license in 2005. She grew up in Cocoa Beach Florida, where she developed a love for surfing, wakeboarding, and the skate culture (she also snowboards!). When she moved to the West Coast 17 years ago, Santa Cruz was a natural fit. Before joining the Strock team, she was working as an independent agent – but she had really missed collaborating with others!
Today she lives in Capitola, loves searching for sea glass on Davenport’s shores, and also enjoys fishing (the biggest fish she ever caught was a 27″ halibut)! We are so glad to have you on this team Faith.

You would expect a home on Ohana Street to be all about family – but you probably weren’t expecting a home that lives like a triplex. With three kitchens, 3 separate entrances, and separate bedrooms/bathrooms for each unit, you could easily divide the space. Two of the “units” are connected by an interior staircase, so you could easily keep the main house as one big living space and use the third as a rental or incredible office – talk about a dream commute!
Main Home: 4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms | 2,466 SF
Bonus Unit: 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom | 440 SF $1,550,000

10 & 12 Ohana Way, Santa Cruz

Imagine living 15 minutes from the beach, 30 minutes from Silicon Valley, and on 1.24 acres in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This mostly flat, sunny lot in Felton could give you all of that, and potentially your dream home. Buildability reports are still pending, but look promising – originally there was a home built on this lot! What we can’t stop daydreaming about is the type of lifestyle you could have here: Historic Downtown Felton is only a couple of miles away, Henry Cowell State Park is essentially across the street from your neighborhood, and you will never run out of hiking options.
1.24 Acres | $395,000

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

“Nicole is terrific, really superb. Having been somewhat checked in our exhaustive (and exhausting) search, we were very lucky to connect with Nicole, who was smart, knowledgeable, empathetic, creative, energetic, and intuitive in understanding our sometimes competing interests and needs, helping us to think through prospects and decisions with clarity and wise perspective. She was great at negotiating, with an excellent team behind her, and brought us to success within a relatively short but intense span, after all the ups and downs, and much effort. We are so grateful to have had such a competent and supportive agent in Nicole. Highly recommend!”
